About Susan Huffman

I grew up in Florida, moved to NYC, Philadelphia & Santa Fe, NM for 23 years prior to moving back to St. Augustine in 1995. I was a former professional dancer and owned a physical therapy and Pilates wellness center in St. Augustine for the past 15 years. I consider my home a canvas that reflects my creative and eclectic taste yet is comfortable and warm.

Susan Huffman purchased this house in 1995

Why Susan Huffman chose St. Augustine

Conveniently located between St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra. My home offers easy access to I 95, outlet malls, golf, water sports and historical sites. Within walking distance of three waterfront restaurants. Two miles from the Vilano Town Center with Publix, a salon, dry cleaning, restaurants, beach wear, a water park, boat rentals and fishing pier.

What makes this house unique

Open floor plan with great ocean views from every room. Walk out your back door to the beach. This property is in an established neighborhood with private homes vs. condos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Susan,

Our stay was awesome! Your house is beautiful & serene. Coming from a family of artists - your decor and touches are placed with special thought. I thank you for allowing your home to be our home for a short while. No email's were looked and or answered. That's saying a lot of how restful it was. Our family had a great time while they were here. Much love and laughter we shared. I enjoyed several of your books which were thought provoking.

Thanks again!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
The house itself is beautifully decorated and the views of the ocean just add to the serenity of this place. Susan is easily reachable and responded quickly to each of our emails. The restaurant 'Caps on the Water' is only a few blocks away and served delicious, fresh and local seafood.

We cant wait to stay here again!

Peaceful and Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I must say the pics don't even come close to the true beauty of this home. It is absolutely gorgeous-with spectacular views from every room in the house. The home has lots of room, with a very open floor plan. The bedding/linens were very nice and cozy. The home is very clean and well maintained. The lower deck provides a place to take in the sun, relax in the hot tub and enjoy views of the ocean. I would highly recommend this wonderful home to others. We will be back next year!! Thank you Susan!!

PERFECT WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
This is the 3rd time I have stayed in this wonderful home for a girls weekend. It is perfect for this type of event as well as family events or vacations. There is an abundance of comfortable sleeping and space. The open floor plan is refreshing and renewing for the soul. We have walked to the restaurants that are close and have driven "in town". Both were perfect so there are many options for dining and entertainment. Perfect place

WOW! What a great vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation was wonderful! The home is gorgeous, roomy and the views just dont stop. So relaxing and peaceful! The beach is beautiful and quiet. We had a family of dolphins play each day so close to the shore. There was a baby dolphin about 3.5 feet playing with its mom great pictures! We will stay here again!

We had a great time...

  • 4 of 5
If you need a vacation with waves, sun, and touristy stuff to do while still being close to comforts like Publix and standard restaurants (Lone Star, Carabbas, Red Lobster, Outback) then this is the place for you. The house is stunningly decorated with leather couches and leather chairs around the tables. A short drive gets you into St. Augustine and another short drive gets you to the comforts of home (restaurants, Target, etc.). There is not much shelling as in whole unique shells, but there are tons of pieces of shells that have weathered the oceans and show unique patterns in them that would be interesting in jewelry. We think we even found a shark's tooth an some other sort of teeth. The beach is private, but the neighborhood across the street uses the public access path right next to the house, so you might wind up with people stationed right in front of the house. But it also makes it another layer of "watching" to do while sitting on the couches. The windows are all around on the main level and you can see everything; sunrise, cloud formations, waves, people, dogs, boats, dolphins. The sand is walkable after you get thru the broken shell layer. The outdoor shower and hose was so nice to help rinse off with after playing in the surf. The house comes with boogie boards, but the Publix right down the road has inner tube floaties, and more boogie boards and anything else you could need. The laundry room is a bit challenging, especially for my husband, who did all the laundry, but we are finding as we explore these VBRO rentals that that might be the norm for beach houses. The owner was very concerned that we had a nice time and that we enjoyed her property. The only drawback for us that we had not considered, was that the house is on the Coastal Highway so you sometimes hear the traffic with the waves. If that doesn't bother you then this house is a great property for the St. Augustine area.
