The Shell is a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for five nights in December. We had visited St Augustine previously but decided to return for an opportunity to experience the history of the area. The location of the Shell was an easy walk to town and very close to a trolley stop. We had a wonderful time learning and touring the Fort, Lighthouse,and the downtown area. When we returned "home" it was a pleasure to cook, eat, and enjoy time at the Shell. The deck is a great place to enjoy the birds and occasional small fishing boats that come and go across the marsh, a beautiful spot to start and end the day. The Shell has been decorated and supplied with perfect taste and top quality everything! We would not have changed anything! Thank you for a perfect stay!

A quiet and comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 6 days at Shell in late September 2014. This was our first visit to St. Augustine in many years. We left with fond memories of a beautiful city and equally lovely property. As nature lovers we had lots of fun, even in rainy weather, enjoying the ever changing view across the marsh with it's birds. Shell is supplied, decorated

and constructed with exquisite taste. Everything functioned perfectly. We had every item we needed down to dishwasher and laundry detergent. Shell is located in a quiet neighborhood very close to the historic area of St. Augustine. We hope to return soon.

Absolute treasure!

  • 5 of 5

What a darling home away from home. Beautiful views, cool shade, spick and span, and wonderfully decorated and equipped! This charming home has it all, walk to town, sit on the bay, enjoy the sunrise and sunset with cool breezes and sea life off the pier. We wish we could keep this delightful place all to ourselves! We come to St. Augustine often and look forward to staying here whenever it is available!

Great Place To Relax

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, and my parents stayed here for eight nights. We all had a great time. This rental is close to everything, historic downtown, grocery stores, beach,restaurants and the Jacksonville area.

The kitchen is fully complete for cooking, and the gas grill is wonderful too. We had a great view of the dock and water from the living room. We also saw some wild life from the living room (including a peacock from the kitchen window). This neighborhood is very quiet and relaxing. We all had a great time and we would definitely stay again! Cheryl V.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 5 nights in the Shell - our first visit to St. Augustine - and had a wonderful visit. Perfect location for us - close to the historic district and other attractions plus right on the Intercoastal. We biked back and forth very easily. When we were home the setting was very private and relaxing. Spent a lot of morning and later evening hours out on the deck watching the amazing wildlife and boats in the distance. Packed our binoculars and used them everyday. Took the kayak out one time and enjoyed that. The house itself was very comfortable and well equipped. Grilled one night. Didn't have anyone in the other side of the duplex during our stay, so can't speak to how that would be, but the layout of the outdoor space is such that two groups should be able to be quite separate from one another. Texted Melinda upon arrival and departure and she responded immediately both times. Overall, a real treat to be able to stay in a setting like this vs. a more crowded, impersonal condo or hotel.
