About The Owner

This was originally our family home. When we moved to a larger home we kept it as a rental since it is so close to the beach. Four years ago we converted it to a short term vacation rental. We own three gift shops in Saint Augustine so having a Vacation rental is a good fit for us since we are have been in the Tourism business for 30 years. We enjoy sharing our knowledge and experience of the area with our guests.

The Owner purchased this house in 1984

Our Third Stay at Sunburst...Better Than Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Let me be brief so you'll read this. The owner of this house is a perfectionist. Everything is in perfect condition, and he has upgraded to wonderful kitchen appliances. We love the beachy decor, exhaust fans in the bathrooms that work, the wonderfully landscaped property, the beautiful new and comfortable patio furniture and wide umbrella, but mostly the comfortable new King mattress!!! We sleep on a Tempurpedic and had no trouble adjusting to this one. It is always spotless, full of any cooking utensils you would ever the spices and essentials to get you started. We came during a hot wave and never really enjoyed the hot tub. It still baffles me that the house is so quiet with AIA nearby. You do not hear anything at night. We love that sweet house and appreciate Michael and Pam's committment to make it just perfect for guests. Don't pack beach chairs, coolers or boogie boards...the garage is full of really nice equipment! You will love this place and it's convenient location to the beach, shopping and the old town. We will be staying again!

comfortable, clean, roomy, everything perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed last year about second week in August. Everything was as described. Felt like a second home, clean, well stocked and roomy. Other homes nearby but still felt very private. Beach was a 5 minute walk. Word of warning... we arrived at night and went straight to the water and ... fell straight off a sandy cliff & got a nasty sprain. Not owner's fault but from what I gathered the town shores up the beach from time to time causing 4.5 feet drops near shoreline. Next day the town leveled them off. If I had known I wouldn't have made such a run to the water. Great place, everything nearby. Beaches not too crowded and very comfortable. Owner stopped by on the first day for a pleasant greeting. Would definitely recommend again. Lots to do in surrounding area.

Terrific Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just loved our first stay here, so close to the beach and walking distance to restaurants. All of the nearby places were really good and we wished we had tried the Coquina Beach Surf Club earlier: it was our last dinner of the trip and everything was just delicious, maybe our favorite. We will definitely be back for another getaway at Sunburst Cottage!
