St. Augustine Area House Rental Photos and Description

This four bedroom, two bath home is ideal for families who want to enjoy the beach and Guana State Park. It is located conveniently between Ponte Vedra Beach and St Augustine. This beach is very private because it is located across from the undeveloped Guana Preserve.

The nearest public access is over a mile from the home. Great restaurants and attractions to the north in Ponte Vedra and South to historic St Augustine. Temporary membership to Sawgrass Country Club can be arranged as well.

Lovely Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your beach home in May. It was a great family time; we loved the private beach access and the comfortable home. Although the home is not fully renovated with the newest frills, it was perfectly suited for us and provided a great place to relax together as a family. The kitchen is small but it didn't really matter to us as we spent most of our time relaxing on the beach and often used the covered grill area to cook. We were able to eat our meals and play games on the large table in the back porch overlooking the beach. It was lovely.

The caretaker prepared the home well, which was clean and amply supplied. She was very helpful to us and even came out to replace a blender that was missing, just in time for a family margarita night. Bill, the owner, promptly responded to our emails and was very pleasant and informative. We look forward to renting again next year and enjoying the secluded, restful beachfront home.

Many thanks,

Diane

Spacious, great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect rental for our family of four and our little dog! The beach is about 20 steps from the back door and is just completely gorgeous, sparsely populated - perfect for swimming, long walks, football, etc. There's a great outdoor shower, a shed with boogie boards and beach chairs, etc. The house is very large - with four bedrooms and plenty of space. The living room is big and super comfortable ... great place to relax, read, play board games, watch movies. Fantastic Florida room out back, where we ate most meals overlooking the ocean. This really was the perfect vacation spot for us and great value for the price. To manage expectations, renters should know that the house is old and has not been updated. The kitchen is tiny - not something I could stand to live with but not a big deal to me for a vacation. The house in general is a little tired, the lawn leaves a lot to be desired and you won't want to walk around on it - but it doesn't matter because you'll either be out on the beach, in town shopping and eating and doing the variety of touristy things the area has to offer, or lounging in the big living room. Also, everything was very clean and there were loads of towels and laundry available. Plus, Bill was very easy and pleasant to work with. We would definitely come back.

Easy to work with.

  • 5 of 5

We had a number of special needs, not the least of which was that we had to have someplace to stay on short notice. Bill was very accommodating, and everything went as promised. The house is an old style Forida beach house, and, as such, was a nostalgic pleasure for a family that had spent many vacations on the beach some years ago. I agree with others that the Florida room is great. Nice view, pleasant light. The house is a great place to stay and relax, and a great value.

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this house for several days in March and had the most amazing time! The house is very spacious with even more beds than we were anticipating. There is a fantastic patio-type room on the back of the house with tons of windows so you even get the beach experience while you are in the home. The interior is nice enough that you feel everything is clean and enjoyable without being so extravagant that you don't feel comfortable or are scared to break something.

The house is several miles from a grocery store, shops, and restaurants, but it is by no means a burden to run into town.

The owner is SO incredibly nice. He responds promptly to emails and returned the security deposit in a reasonable time. The caretaker is also very nice and understanding.

All in all, I would absolutely recommend this house!
