Once you enter the home, you will notice the wide open spaces and fantastic view of the the beach and ocean from almost every room in the house..from the well appointed Living Room with new flat screen TV to Dining Room that seats 6-8, the Sun Room for your morning coffee as you watch the sun rise or cocktails in the evening...and the expansive and fully equipped Kitchen and Den with TV.

Just out the Sun Room is the deck with your own private catwalk out to the beach. Plus another deck on the lower level.

The second bedroom has a Queen and TV ...the third bedroom has two twins and the fourth bedroom doubles as an office/two twins with TV.

We built this home for our family and our grandchildren. We are the only owners. It is a special place.

Why Kendra Jordan chose St. Augustine Area

The ocean front views from the great room and the balcony and the screened porch offer hours of enjoyment. Nothing like it.

Idyllic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Vilano Beach is our main vacation spot each year - this area close to Old Town St. Augustine is great for fishing, swimming, beach walking, kayaking, and shell (shark tooth) collecting. This particular house was a GREAT find when we wanted to have a 40th birthday getaway with our best friends and all our kids. We don't normally stay in a house directly on the beach, so this was a special treat and we are now completely spoiled! The layout of the house was great for our needs, and we enjoyed the art and the personality of the place. The property manager eagerly took care of all our needs and more and was so kind!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6 (girls 15-24) and we have a family friend. We couldnt have enjoyed our vacation more than in this oceanfront retreat. it is a large house on a great sandy beach with a great kitchen/BBQ and 4 bedrooms. Our activities included walking on the beach, swimming and enjoying the waves in the atlantic every day, visiting St Augustine, National Parks close up but also up to Kingsley Plantation. There is so much history in that area. Enjoyed with Eco Tours a boat ride to see the incredible wildlife in the St Augustine Area. Visting a Crocodile Farm and in the evenings enjoying the view from the house. We can only highly recommend this for any family or groups interested in history, nature and a relaxing vacation.

A great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 women who drove in from the New Orleans area. We stayed a week and had an amazing time. The house was perfect. Large, clean, and easy to work with the agent. The views were spectacular. We all highly recommend staying here!

Private, peaceful and beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister-in-law and mother-in-law enjoyed our stay at Akvavit. The home had everything we needed; was very clean, comfortable and spacious. The beach was awesome and we walked it many times. Watching the sunrise over the ocean was a special time for us. My mother-in-law especially enjoyed her first beach-front experience. We loved watching the pelicans and spotting dolphins. St. Augustine has wonderful historic and eco tours, a great fresh seafood shop, and is just a short, easy drive from the home. Many great memories were made during our stay. Kendra went above and beyond expected service for providing us with a perfect vacation!

Beautiful house, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

An annual family reunion for us with ages ranging from the mid 20's to mid 60's. First time at Akvavit. Gorgeous house with enough space for us to move around and get quiet time.

This is not your standard rental. This is a house that someone lived in and loved. Everything has been thought of - from equipment in kitchen, to Netflix, and music....

The beach is beautiful and great for shell collecting. We were not there during the right time of year for swimming. I expect swimming will be nice at the right time. Instead we went on long walks and bike rides. It is 15 mins from St.Augustine close enough for good restaurants and shopping, but still far enough so it was quiet. We enjoyed the nature preserve a couple of miles to the North. We spent a lovely afternoon there on a very windy day. The trees provide a wind break and it has really nice trails.

Kendra was very responsive to our questions and needs.

We highly recommend Akvavit. Only wish that we could have been there longer.

Perfect spot for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful spot to bring our family together this summer! We truly enjoyed our time at Akvavit. The location can't be beat. The house was clean and comfortable and felt a lot more spacious than the pictures show. We enjoyed sunrises and sunsets on the deck every day! We were thrilled when we spotted some dolphins! Getting the temporary membership to Serenata was a nice addition. When we weren't in the mood to cook, we made a quick trip down the road for a lovely dinner at the club and it was nice to have access to a pool when the waves were a bit too much for the children!

There are plenty of activities nearby to keep the entire family entertained! The property manager was easily accessible when we had questions about the property. Can't wait to return to this lovely property next year!
