St. Augustine Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths (Sleeps 12-14)

Stunning home. Totally remodeled home on the inside as you can see. Perfect for a large family or two families. But let's start with the beautiful furnishings and decorating... first class all the way. Then there is the spacious Living Area on the main floor with a wondrous view of the beach and ocean... with large, new flat screen TV and full wet bar... and new Pottery Barn slip covers on the comfy, overstuffed couches and chairs in the Living Room. Off the Living Area is the Kitchen/Dining Room and Kids area ... with everything you will need in the modern Kitchen along with the seating area bar. The Dining Room seats eight or more with a large Farmers Table overlooking the ocean... plus more. Plus a full bath. And the deck ... two levels and plenty of room to enjoy your coffee as the sun rises over the ocean or for cocktails in the evening as the sun glistens over the ocean.

Five bedrooms ... Two Masters, both with new flat screen TVs and King with a trundle bed in one. Plus a new flat screen TV in the Queen bedroom. The other bedrooms ... one with two twins and a futon and the other with a bunk bed with a futon as well.

If you only do one vacation a year, make it a "Dream" vacation.

Enjoy the fabulous Serenata Beach Club just two miles south for only $245(Spring/Fall/Winter) and $266 during the summer for your group (10 people, excluding kids under 6).

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Ocean Dream. The home is secluded, from public parking access, so many days we were the only ones on this stretch of beach. St. Augustine is very accessible and there are countless options for lunch or dinner. We actually found ourselves not wanting or needing to leave the house, as it is very well stocked with beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, a grill and cookware. There is plenty of space to enjoy quiet time or gather around the table for a family meal and game of cards. We enjoyed the house and the Carney's were great to work with, communicative and available. Rental was exactly what was promised and more.

Great House for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth stay in an oceanfront house in the Ponte Vedra - St. Augustine area and our second rental from this company (Oceanfront Property Management)...and we'll definitely be using Rick as our vacation rental source from now on. He's a very professional property manager who responds promptly to queries. The house is very well-equipped as stated in the property description: plenty of beds, linens, dinnerware, glasses, cookware, etc., as well as beach and balcony chairs for enjoying the outdoors. The rooms are spacious...and with so many of them, it was easy to find a quiet corner when that was desirable. All in all, our family of 9 was totally satisfied and wouldn't hesitate to refer Ocean Dream or Ocean Retreat (our previous rental 2 doors down) to any family who would enjoy a casual week on the beach.

The Ocean dream was all it said it would be, this was our family of 10 second time and everyone is looking forward to the "pink " house next year(that will make 3 years in a row). The home is spacious, everyone had their own area and the kitchen was our real meeting area. The beach being out our door is certainly a real plus. I would always say YES to the Ocean Dream!

A True Ocean Dream

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 (family and friends) stayed at Ocean Dream the week before my daughter's wedding. Since the house is comprised of five different levels, it feels very spacious and allowed us all to spread out a little. It is VERY well equipped with everything you need to cook and enjoy the beach. And it's right ON the beach, which was heavenly (and convenient). Jenny and Rick were wonderful and let us know all the ins and outs about the house via a great "Guest Manual," as well as our check-in phone call. We had an absolutely fantastic time during our stay, and Ocean Dream will be part of our very fond memories of our daughter's wedding week forever!

A great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

A great place to spend a vacation. The ocean is only steps away. The house is spacious (perfect for a large group) and clean. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Check in and check out was breeze as the hosts are very accommodating. We would recommend the membership at the nearby beach club. It was well worth it.

We would definitely recommend Ocean Dream to friends and family.
