Overview

Saint Augustine House Rental Photos and Description

- 2 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 6.

This is my favorite place to go. You have it all here. Walk into this light and bright home with beautiful paintings, leather sleeper sofa, hot tub and heated pool. Bring your boat or use the kayaks and cruise down the intercoastal waterway to the oldest city in the country. You may just want to relax and watch your favorite TV/DVD show on the 47' LCD TV. Floors are ceramic tile and carpet in the master bedroom. Master has a 32' LCD TV/DVD. The large master bedroom has a king size bed and a twin. You will love the large walk in closet. Master bedroom has a private full bathroom completely redone in 2015. The 2nd bedroom is very colorful with beachy decor and has a queen bed and a twin. This bedroom has a 26' LCD TV/DVD. Just look at my pictures and you will see how comfortable and cheerful this home is. Another bathroom next to the 2nd bedrooms which was completely redone in 2015. The fully stocked kitchen has all the appliances you will need and very accommodating. All new remodeled kitchen with beautiful quartz countertops installed-Nov. 2015. You will enjoy the view of the waterway while relaxing in the large hot tub.

Bring your boat if you wish and dock it on the 10x20 floating dock. There are two boat ramps within a mile. There is one tandem kayak and one single kayak ready for you with paddles and life jackets. Maybe a ride to the beach on the beach bikes sounds better. Six bikes to choose from. Just have fun and do it all! Ride the bikes or walk to the beach which is just a few minutes away. This area has special designated beach access walkway or choose the Crescent Beach Park where there is a drive on beach access, oceanfront restaurant, showers.. Also, a large parking area if you choose not to drive on the beach. 4x4 advised. I have included a map and a booklet with favorite places and restaurants for you.

Heated inground pool looks beautiful! I designed the first step to be very large and about one foot deep to use as a kiddie pool or area to sunbathe. The deck around the pool is huge. Weber Grill and outdoor PVC patio table and chairs for your outdoor BBQ's is great rain or shine.

A covered patio 14x48 with an 32' LED TV outside in a waterproof custom made box. White vinyl privacy fence and large palm trees to give you that tropical feeling.

You have the best of both worlds. The intercoastal waterway to go boating or kayaking and the beach access to enjoy the ocean waves, sunbathing, swimming, and the view. The Historic District is only about 10 minutes north of here.

Restaurants and shopping is close by. My favorite beach is about 1/2 mile south of my home. You will find The South Beach Grill Restaurant/Lounge overlooking the ocean, plenty of parking, pavillions, and rest rooms. If you decide to go boating or kayaking I ride south to the Matanzas Bridge. It is a great place to park your boat/kayak and enjoy floating in the calm waters on a raft and sunbath. You may like to fish from the shoreline. Please email or call me and I will email you the confirmation with all the information you need to reserve my home including secure payment options. Available 24/7

About Donna DeNapoli

Being a single mom I needed to succeed. Always enjoyed real estate so, I became a Realtor in 1996. Was the top producing agent in my town in Gainesville, Florida for years. I started buying homes in St. Augustine. This home was my first in 1996. Always loved this home and wanted to retire here one day. In 2003 I was introduced to vacation rentals by one of my clients. I bought my first vacation rental home in 2003. I enjoyed decorating and managing my home so much I bought three more between 2003-2005. You will always enjoy my homes and have a great vacation. You will notice the pride of ownership!

Donna DeNapoli purchased this house in 1996

Peaceful and clean

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our dog Holly for an extended weekend. We had a wonderful time. The house was very clean and the pool and hot tub were perfect. We got up to watch the sunrise on the beach each morning (very close to beach parking so that was convenient). It is only a short drive to downtown St. Augustine and a nice area to walk around. Thank you for letting us use your home for our vacation.

UNDERSOLD

  • 5 of 5

When you make a commitment to rent a distant home in an unknown location, it is a roll of the dice. Our choice at St. Augustine exceeded expectations - even hopes - on all counts. The home is in a quiet neighborhood. St. Augustine is about 18 min. north. Beautiful ocean beach is about 3/4 mile to the east, and Mantanzas River about two blocks to the west. The home is CLEAN, and filled with top quality everything. Great and complete kitchen, beds, linens, appliances, - all are superior. It comes stocked with staples to get you started, and cooking supplies. The heated swimming pool and the new hot tub are bordered by a shaded deck, lounge chairs, and enclosed by a privacy fence. I am happy and comfortable to give this our highest recommendation. Why? My comments have been understated and we have already made a down payment to return next Spring. If you want this place, you better move quickly. If you have needs, Donna, the owner, will see to them. Dick and Joan Fleming, Eau Claire, Wisc.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am so happy you really enjoyed your vacation in my home and have reserved it again next March 2017. It is a very special home with quality items and so nicely decorated and clean. I clean with the cleaning crew each and every home. I think it makes a huge difference. I am there to pay attention to the details that management companies are unable to do. I work hard to keep my homes perfect in every way for my guests. You were wonderful guests and left my home so nice. It made me happy to know you enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub everyday during the month of February-March. I am glad to have you return next year to explore more of the great historic St. Augustine area.

St Augustine Beach

The house was comfortable, relaxing, well equipped with a picturesque back yard. You could look at and see wonderful birds and the fish jumping. Donna made sure we had everything we needed and was responsive to any questions we had. Would definitely stay there when we return.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad you enjoyed your home and would love to return. Home has a special positive energy about it that you just feel good when you are there. It is hard to explain in writing, but so many others feel the same way. I keep my homes very well stocked with quality items. I love to decorate so home has beautiful tropical decor, very clean home since I clean along with the cleaning crew, and the picturesque back yard with heated pool, hot tub, covered patio, and on the water! Bikes to ride to the beach or kayaks to explore the waterway. What more could anyone want? Thanks for keeping my home so nice. I really appreciate it.

Great house and amenities

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay in this home over Thanksgiving. Heated Pool, hot tub, kayaks, and boat dock were great amenities and well used! Kitchen was a bit tight for cooking thanksgiving meal, but was well stocked with all we needed. Small issue with one bath tub not draining well, contacted Donna and she came over within 15 minutes to fix the problem. Lots of towels, great quality. Comfortable beds. Great house for family with kids - each room had a large bed and also a twin. Loved the location as well - lots of good restaurants near by and groceries within 3 miles.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad you enjoyed your vacation home for the Thanksgiving week. I just love this home! So comfortable and just a wonderful waterfront home with a private peaceful setting. So well stocked with everything you need. Appreciate the compliments on my towels and comfy beds. I am very involved with my homes and live closeby, so any size problem that should arise, I am there quickly. I am happy to hear that you had opportunity to enjoy all the amenities my home has to offer. This home is so much fun and the perfect home for a romantic get away or family to relax together and have great memories. I appreciate how nice you left my home. Guests were arriving same day a few hours after your departure. It was a pleasure having you!

Top notch!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home is amazing. From the beds, bedding, towels, dishes to the kayaks and beach chairs, Donna has spared no expense to provide for her guest's comfort. We had a wonderful week and when it rained we just got in the hot tub which was on the covered patio.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I agree that this home is wonderful! From the minute you walk in the door you just get this really good feeling. It has good energy and very comfortable and relaxing and beautiful. I try to make my homes the best I can for my guests to have a great vacation. I have recently remodeled both bathrooms and I'm in the process installing new cabinets and quartz counter tops with an all new beautiful kitchen to enjoy which will be completed by November 5, 2015. The heated pool, hot tub and water views add to the beauty of this gem.

The pool, hot tub, beautiful deck and view could keep me here for a very long time! Even the bed linens smelled great! The easy location to the beach and many restaurants and bars make this a perfect vacation home! The homeowner is helpful and friendly. Would recommend this home highly!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I really appreciate it. Glad you really enjoyed my home, pool, beach, and restaurants, and had a wonderful time. I am very particular about my linens which I use special detergents and whitening solutions to keep the linens clean and smelling fresh. I clean all linens myself for all my homes. Keeps me quite busy, but I am full of energy, so I actually enjoy it. Inside of home is so comfortable and pretty, and outside pool area is very inviting. Very peaceful and relaxing to sit under the covered patio with such great views of the waterway and tropical surroundings. The restaurants close by are very good and a few even allow dogs at the outdoor seating areas. Thanks for noticing that I am friendly and helpful. I will stop what I am doing at a moments notice if someone needs anything at all. Everyone loves this home and I have many return guests. Thank you for keeping my home so nice!

Everyone loves St. Augustine. You will want to come back to this town year after year. My home is north end of Cresent Beach. This is a beautiful area convenient to everything. Only 10 miles south of the downtown Historic District. Beautiful beaches here at Crescent Beach. Oceanfront Restaurant/lounge only 1/2 mile away at the drive on beach access. There is also a large parking area for those who do not want to drive on the beach. Pavillions and showers at Crescent Beach Park also.

Very dog friendly beach as long as you walk with a leash. I encourage you to bring your pet only if well behaved.

Golf: Take a ride to the Islands about 5 miles south of this home and see many boats parked here on a sunny day. If you have never been to St. Augustine you will love it! Please ask me any questions you may have.
