Guestbook comments from the manager

It was as wonderful as ever. The pizza at Pizzalley's in St. Augustine was tasty and it was great that they provide a gluten free option. The beach was amazing and seeing all the turtle tracks was a spectacular addition to our experience.

No rain this year, lots of good fishing, beautiful sunrises, awesome waves for boarding and plenty of sea shells and sharks' teeth. We'll see you next year!

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

Rental was nice, but not nearly what we expected for the price. We had 9 adults, 3 children, and a dog. Even though it says the house accommodates this many, it felt small. We didn't have enough room to eat together or sit in the evenings. The catwalk to the beach had nail coming up in spots that one of the children cut their foot on. There was a big dropoff at the end of the catwalk as there was no bottom step to get onto the beach. The towels smelled of mildew and we found live bugs inside of some. Lighting is lacking throughout the house for evenings when you don't have natural light.

The bunk room was nice for the children. Laundry area was convienent. Kitchen was lacking some items I would expect it to have in order to be "stocked" but it was a great smaller kitchen with updated appliances. Beach was very close and empty while we were there. Not much actual sandy beach area though with the tide being high.

This was a nice rental that just needed a little more attention before guests arrived.

two families with babies and teenagers enjoyed it!

  • 5 of 5

The house is well stocked, clean, everything is well decorated. Proximity to the beach is the winner! The beach is beautiful and clean, weather was gorgeous and no people around, priceless. Hot tub was enjoyed by kids and adults alike. We loved having a game room with bunk beds since we had 5 kids and a baby. Highly recommend.

Best Rental Yet!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer to get together for a family vacation and we could not have been happier with the condition of the property. The house was very well maintained and clean, lots of room and right on the beach! We enjoyed the kitchen and the BBQ grill. We loved visiting St. Augustine also. In the future I would make sure I rent kayaks for the week so we could get a close up view of the dolphins swimming by every morning. My advice, brew a pot of coffee at 6am and go out to the end of the walkway and watch the sunrise, you will not be disappointed.

Sandy Toes and Sweet Beaches

  • 5 of 5

Wren Beach Rental agency has been the best agency we've worked with. We summer at the beach every year and it is great to know that everything we need is taken care of at Sandy Toes. It is great to have the beach to ourselves. The home was very spacious, with clean linens, a great supply of beach towels and every kitchen tool we needed. My teenagers, grandparents and husband all enjoyed themselves. We played games, fished and walked on the beach. Loved going into St. Augustine and taking a chocolate tour at Whetson Chocolate Factory, stopping by the Winery, and having pizza at Pizzalley's on St. George street.

Family Vacation-Better Than Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely amazing multi-family beach vacation! Our first trip to the St. Augustine area and SandyToes beach house was a complete success and exceeded our expectations. From the initial request for information, reservation process , to the check-out process, we could not have been more delighted. The Wren Beach Rental team were engaged in meeting all of our family requests and needs to provide an unforgettable family vacation. The beach house layout was perfect for our party of 12 and even the young kiddos commented on how fun the bunk-beds were! We enjoyed picturesque views sipping morning coffee on the beach and the private deck for our big family breakfasts which made our mornings! The beachfront was truly our own "private piece of paradise" and our families enjoyed moonlight bocce games and fishing!

We also took advantage of the nearby beach club for pool access and resort dinng! Caps on the Water restaurant ended our week with a family dinner out on the last night! We are already planning a return late summer trip ! We highly recommend Sandy Toes and the entire Wren team for any future beach front vacation!

Sandy Toes and Sandy Paws

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful Wren Beach Rentals property. As with all Wren locations (we've rented 4 over 7 years), you can begin enjoying your stay the minute you walk in the door. This is just as advertised--very well-equipped, perfect location, straightforward rental agreement with no surprises. During all of our stays, we've only encountered only 1 minor hiccup which was corrected quickly and kindly. The area truly offers activities for everyone, plus restaurants and grocery stores conveniently nearby.
