About JG McDaniel

The house is St. Augustine is unique in every way and has hosted writers, artists, educators, and visitors from many countries. Designers from Mattel spent 10 days at Turtle Dunes going to the Daytona 500 by day, and designing toy cars at night. One of the designers left a Mattel coffee mug that has been in the house for 20 years. There is nothing ordinary about 'Turtle Dunes'. A very special, restful, and completely unique home.

JG McDaniel purchased this house in 1991

Why JG McDaniel chose St. Augustine Area

Love at first sight. Great energy. You will see. Folks have to return. Can't help themselves.

What makes this house unique

Hard to explain and the house just has good energy. A very unique location among N. Florida's most prestigious and elaborate ocean front homes.

Lovely Private Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully maintained with amenities such as a large kitchen open to the dining and living areas with nice appliances, beautiful, classic furniture and comfortable seating, and lots of unique artwork. The bed in the very nice master suite has the most comfortable king size bed I've ever slept in (even my own!) The master suite bathroom includes corner shower has a cool pebble tile floor and very cool wood grain tile on the walls and a rain shower-style shower-head. The living room features a large flat screen TV with cable (lots of channels!)which was great for the 1 rainy day we had for our FLA vacation. The deck is large and the pool is is great to have as well as a rare find in a home right on the beach (I know because I looked. and looked. and looked!) The privacy fence enhances the feeling of a private retreat. The owner was very kind and communicative and while we had no problems, I feel certain that he would have taken care of anything we needed. You will not be disappointed by choosing this beautiful place as your home away from home!

*As stated in the description, this is not a home for children, the artwork is plentiful, looks expensive and lots of it is breakable (sculptures, ceramics, glass). Kids, especially kids on vacation, would not be a good fit for this home.

Second time renting property. Owner has continued to upgrade and maintain the property perfectly. Owner is very helpful and you can tell he takes pride in the property and enjoys sharing it. Hopefully we will rent again if available!!

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the house, the location and all the thoughtful touches presented to make our stay such a success . We were able to be at peace, take long needed breaths, walk the beautiful beaches at Crescent and enjoy the local cuisine. Our only change would have been to ask permission to use the chair to climb the stairs. Being well over 65 does put a cramp in our climb!!! Loved it. Many thanks.

We definitely enjoyed the rental and would come back again. The property and house are spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the owner for sharing the rental with our family. We celebrated Thanksgiving with friends from Saint Augustine. It felt like we were in a home away from home. The kitchen was well equipped and aided us in meeting all of our dining needs. Our family enjoyed the beautiful views of the ocean from the living room, kitchen and dining room. Venturing out to the beach was a pleasure, as it was a short walk from the home. Once on the beach there was plenty of opportunities for swimming, shelling and exploring the natural areas in Matanzas Bay. The pool was an added bonus for swimming, resting and relaxing. The rental was quiet and the bedrooms were spacious with luxury bedding. Our stay was most enjoyable and we will definitely be back again.

Great Vacation Memories

  • 5 of 5

This home and our vacation was just 'what the doctor ordered'. We loved the secluded nature of the property, the great views and beach access. The home is well maintained and decorated. Long walks or bike rides on the beach were just steps away while historic St. Augustine was within a great bike ride (or short drive). We certainly see ourselves returning.
