TRULY A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for a family vacation after our grandsons wedding. This place is awesome! Very clean, neatly decorated & had just about everything needed to make our stay enjoyable. Linens, soap, towels, etc...were all right there.
The great room on the 3rd floor was plenty big for our large family & guests that visited after the wedding. The pool was refreshing & clean. Beds were comfortable.
Owner was available anytime we called. Only had one problem with a toilet & it was taken care of immediately.
When renting sight unseen it's always kind of stressful. You don't know what your actually getting until you walk in. This place was just a delight! Would definetly recommend it to anyone interested in a vacation home near the beach.

Owner's Response: Hi Leilani,
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. I have so many compliments in my guest book as you probably read, while you were at your vacation home, but not everyone takes the time to write online. I really appreciate it. I am the owner and very involved with my properties. I clean along with the cleaning people. I think that makes a huge difference with my properties since I am there to oversee any extra things that might need attention. I really love to decorate, so all my homes have my touch. I am constantly updating linens and towels and other items. I spot check all bedding and towels every week. I buy quality items and take pride in my homes as you noticed. If ever a problem I am quick to respond. I live a few miles away and answer my phone 24/7. I am always grateful to have such nice guests that take care of my home. Glad you had a wonderful time. That is what it is all about! Thank you so much. Hope to see you again.

AWESOME HOME

  • 5 of 5
We loved this vacation rental! It's huge, very clean, beautifully decorated. The beach is right across the street and the pool was fabulous. I would definitely stay there again. Old St. Augustine is a great little town with lots to do. I enjoyed meeting Donna. Thanks again Donna for sharing your beautiful home with our family! Carol M.

GREAT HOUSE! PLENTY OF ROOM!

  • 5 of 5
Donna thanks for everything! The house was very clean when we got there and is well maintained. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub as the weather didn't fair well for the beach. Plenty of room for all our family and the fenced yard was great for our dogs. The listing was very accurate and the amenities you provide are over and above. Lots of beach chairs, kayaks, corn hole, etc., were a added bonus! We really enjoyed our stay.... thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I really appreciate it. Glad you enjoyed your home and had a great time. I am very particular how my home is cleaned and stocked. I have the same person clean my homes for the past few years so she know exactly how I like it. I clean with her and make the beds and stock home with alot of extras. I carefully notice if there is anything that needs attention and I am quick to take care of it. I really enjoy hearing all the compliments, but my main goal is for my guests to have a great vacation.

GREAT HOME FOR A LARGER PARTY

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here for a week and had a great time. We brought our little poodle and he had a great time, too. :) Walked to the beach; had to cross A1A but it isn't bad at all in Jan. Daughter enjoyed the pool, and the parents enjoyed the hot tub. There are kayaks but we didn't use them after all; I did use their beach chairs at the beach, and noodles in the pool. The house is well stocked and the owner is easy to work with. Recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad you had a nice time in St.Augustine and enjoyed your vacation home. I enjoyed meeting you and would love to have to stay in my home again.
I supply many items for my guests and always updating and buying more items. The beach is such a short walk it is easy to carry the light weight chairs to the beach. I supply beach toys, floats,noodles, beach umbrella, and beach towels. Happy to hear you got to enjoy the pool and hot tub in January! The weather here is beautiful and the perfect place to get out of the snow and the cold. Glad you had a great week!

PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at this house July 17-24, 2010. This house has EVERYTHING you could imagine-from beach towels to spices in the kitchen, from floats galore for the pool and beach to bikes and a GIANT cart to haul your stuff in to the beach! We had several people ask us on the beach where we got our Gorilla Cart(the actual name of it). It came in VERY handy!
Thank you, Donna for having thought of every little detail. The pool was small but perfect for our family, and we spent LOTS of time in it. Also, the walk to the beach is indeed very short, only took us about 3 minutes to get there.
This house is perfectly laid out for one or two families, or 3 couples. The master is on one side of the house and the other two bedrooms are on the other side of the kitchen. And speaking of beds, the queen and king beds sleep great! The mattresses and sheets/blankets make you feel like you are staying in a luxurious hotel!
Lastly, I will mention that this house is only about 10 minutes from downtown St. Augustine. We ate at a restaurant the last night called Columbia-Mexican and Cuban food-it was amazing! We also took our kids to the Alligator Farm which was a blast for the whole family!
You will not regreat booking this house!
