St. Augustine Area Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6 in beds, 1 king, 1 full/memory foam , 2 twin

A peaceful beach side end unit townhome is totally fenced for your private enjoyment. Keyless entry system is great for beach going. BBQ & plenty of chairs for outdoor fun. Children & pets have plenty of room to roam and play in fully fenced yard. Parents and friends can relax in the new hydrotherapy spa with 31 adjustable jets under the palm trees and stars. New screened porch with doggy door has just been added. Ceiling fans make it easy to open windows and listen to the ocean as you fall asleep. Additional child's room with twin bed & lounge chair is off the master bedroom. First floor bathroom just updated has new walk in shower with sliding glass doors. Bathroom upstairs has shower/tub combo with sliding glass doors.. Master bedroom has new flat screen HD DVR TV. Bedroom downstairs has flat screen TV. Kitchen has new French Door Refrigerator w/water filter. Washer/dryer in attached laundry means fewer clothes to pack. Telephone with unlimited local & long distance calls in the US. Free WiFi internet DSL included. Large side yard can hide your RV or boat. All the conveniences of home.

Our subdivision: Ponte Vedra Shores West is a small residential subdivision. It is peaceful, quiet and close to Flagler Hospital, Historic Downtown St. Augustine, beaches, malls and airports. We have a new Publix Supermarket 3 miles away. There are constant activities going on within 20 minutes. It has a little bit of the 4 seasons and far enough north that we usually do not get hit with the hurricanes that tend to hit the lower part of Florida or come up the Gulf Coast. The landmark Castle Otttis is something to see. When giving directions to my unit, I always refer to the castle. They have church services there every Sunday at 11am. How cool is that? Or maybe you want to plan a wedding?

Local activities: Disney and other theme parks are close by for day trips. Cruise ships are up to one hour north or south. St. Augustine Amphitheater is within 15 minutes. Alligator Farm, Forts, North Beach Camp ground, Guanna State Park, are all within minutes. Skim surfing. Several restaurants within 3 miles & the ocean is one block away! Large public boat ramp 4 miles south on right just before coming over the Vilano Bridge. Smaller boat ramp next to Aunt Kate's (new) Restaurant. Kayaking. Take in a Jaguars pro football game at Jacksonville's Everbank Field. Spring time is TPC at Marriott in Sawgrass just 15 miles directly north of my place on A1A. Golf at Royal St. Augustine 6 miles away. Thinking of college? Check out Flaggler College 5 minutes away.

Private Beach: This is such a nice area to spend time. Our private beach is never crowded and pet friendly. You can either walk the block or take your car and park in the small lot. Walking the beach and looking for sharks teeth becomes addictive. People surf fishing in the morning & evening, surfers riding the waves all times of the day, kites flying all add to the wonders of this great little place of paradise. Your pet can swim in the ocean right along with you. It is truly peaceful and quiet with wonderful neighbors. You can have all the night life and tourism by going back over the bridge and driving in minutes. Great concerts at the St. Augustine Amphitheater. Free concerts every Wednesday on Anastasia Island not far from Panama Hatties famous restaurant.

Why Terry Penna chose St. Augustine Area

Always loved St. Augustine area. Vilano is better, less congested and more residential than tourists. Walk to the beach, good restaurants within 3 miles, Publix supermarket 3 miles. I have a large fenced yard with plenty of room for my pets and flowers. If you come visit, you will see what I mean!

What makes this townhome unique

Deeded beach access so you can walk to your own private beach. Listen to sound of the ocean at night and birds in the morning. Stars seem to touch you when sitting in the hot tub at night (very private). I am animal lover and made sure my pets would like it here too. Have their own pet door from porch. Unit is close to so many things and only 51 miles from my home.

Great place - just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I had an awesome visit this place was so perfect for us. Very clean and comfortable felt like home. Close to St Augustine, easy to get to the beach and not far from friends. We really enjoyed the evenings in the backyard. It is wonderfully lit and so peaceful. The weather was great and had clear view of many stars and enjoyed seeing even the space station as it crossed one night. We hope to return.

Great Relaxing Find!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quick getaway and this fit the bill! The home was comfy, clean, homey, well equipped, safe and roomy. We loved that we could walk to the beach and so enjoyed the fenced in yard with hot tub and glorious tropical garden setting.

Perfect Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here with two teen girls and our dog. The condo had everything we needed and then some. It was very conveniently located to every place we wanted to go. The fenced backyard was very peaceful and perfect for our Brittany Spaniel -he loved the dog door. We were just a short stroll from the beautiful uncrowded beach and after spending the day at the beach we got to come back and enjoy the hot tub! Terry was an absolute pleasure to work with. We would love to come back in the future!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the condo. Everything was there for preparing the meal and all else that we needed. We especially enjoyed taking the dogs to the private beach. Fortunately the weather cooperated.

Hoping to take a few days or a week and enjoy it again.
