St. Augustine Area House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms (2 Master Suites), 4 Full Baths, 1 Half Bath, Sleeps 16

Welcome to the Sand Castle! This expansive home is the ideal get-away for large families. In 2013, we did an $80,000 remodel on the interior and exterior!

On the main (2nd) floor is a living-dining-cooking area, and two master suites with private baths. The kitchen has granite counters, stainless appliances and a breakfast bar which can seat 4. The dining area has seating for 8. The living area has a tv, stereo, wet bar and plenty of room for everyone. Outside, you will find a huge deck, which greatly expands the entertaining areas.

The 3rd floor features two queen bedrooms and a loft. The loft has a day bed and trundle overlooking the living area. The loft opens onto a wonderful deck with panoramic ocean views!

On the ground floor there is a large bunk room with two twin-over-double bunkbeds. One of the beds has a twin trundle bed underneath. This room is perfect for a bunch of kids or a few adults. This floor also has a full bath, game room with pool table, dart board and large screen TV

Sand Castle a must stay!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED this house! It was ideal for our family and friends(17 total) who came to town for our daughter's wedding. The 3 floors provided plenty of privacy for everyone; TV's in every bedroom; enough bathrooms to go around plus the ocean view was wonderful. I would highly recommend this house for a vacation to anyone!

The house is beautifully decorated, spacious, designed perfectly for large family groups, contains many amenities, and it is directly on the beach! ........................Judy and David at Wren Beach Rentals

Return toTranquility

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th or 6th visit to Sand Castle and it has become almost like a second home to us. The house is well maintained and the rooms are arranged so we can all get together on the deck or in the main living area but then get personal privacy if wanted. And its location is ideal for restaurants, grocery stores and visiting Old St. Augustine. We have many years of memories staying at the Sand Castle with almost as many photographs of the sunrises, shell finds, wildlife and happy moments on the beach. We highly recommend staying here if want to enjoy the tranquility of being on the beach as well as the opportunity to experience all that St. Augustine has to offer. Wren Beach Rentals is an excellent company & a pleasure to deal with.

Wedding Week with Family

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was getting married in St. Augustine and I wanted to rent a place for all the children and grandchildren to stay together. Sand Castle was a perfect house for this. The grandchildren had their own sleeping space and TV/pool table room. The beach is right outside the door and the owners provided chairs, towels etc. There is a great laundry room and kitchen with all pots, pans, silverware, glassware etc. All we had to supply was the food. Having starter toiletries, toilet paper, paper towels etc. was a big plus. Publix and Publix Liquors is 3 miles away and has anything you need with easy in and out access. Also the house is only about 10 minutes to town and all the attractions.

David, the property manager, was pleasant and easy to work with. All important info and instructions were given to us well in advance which made checking in a breeze. Staying at Sand Castle made our wedding week lots of fun and everyone had a great time.

Another Awesome Vacation at Sand Castle!

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and our families stayed at Sand Castle for the second year in a row. Summer 2015 was made perfect with another wonderful vacation in this comfortable and beautiful space! There was plenty of room for our families - including children of all ages. The house is beautifully decorated and the view of the ocean from the main floor is amazing! The house is well stocked with all the things we needed for cooking. The only thing I would suggest is to update the cookware (pots, pans, etc.). The pool table and media space on the bottom floor is definitely a fun space that we all enjoyed. When we have had a need of any kind, the property manager was immediately available to help us. One of the things we love the most about this house is the long deck that spans the back façade and all the way to the beach. We will definitely consider staying at this house again next summer!

The Everything Dream Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Sand Castle was a dream. The home is more than the pictures on the website. This property as well as the others managed/owned by this company are always immaculate. Everything you will ever need while vacationing, you will find in this home (from a kitchen fully loaded to every beach equipment/game). There are so many beds, you can bring all your friends or extended family (yes it even has a crib). The most important thing was the view. It is breath-taking. We had a small wedding but it could have been much larger. All our guests were amazed at this property. This location is close to fine restaurants and attractions. Our stay was relaxing, fun, and memorable. You will be lucky to stay at the Sand Castle.

Car: recommended

Sand Castle is located in South Ponte Vedra, 4 miles from historic St. Augustine and 20 miles from posh Ponte Vedra. We have several public golf courses within a 20 minute drive, and St, Augustine offers many different activities. Stroll the quaint shops on St. George Street or explore the antique shops and art galleries scattered throughout town. Tour the town by trolley or horse and buggy; don't miss the Alligator Farm, Ghost Tours, Lightner Museum, Fort Matanzas, and the many historical attractions!

If you love water sports, you have come to the right place! You can rent surf boards, jet skis, canoes, and other boats; you can go para sailing, hot air ballooning or fishing in the ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway!

In Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville, you can go horse back riding on the beach, take surfing lessons, visit the great Jacksonville Zoo, or take in a Jaguars game!

We have something for everyone--but most guests love our beach house the most! You may never want to leave!
