St. Augustine Area House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

Come stay and relax and rekindle the love you have for the beach, in our beautiful recently remodeled beach bungalow home. Our home is a lot of fun, and there is something for everyone. It's clean with fresh beach colors, very spacious with lighthearted attitude. Equipped with a game room, also an adult TV room, adorable shower house outside with hot and cold water, beautiful pavers showcase the pool (unheated) and verandah area which also features a gas grill. Master Bedroom has a king size bed with a cute master bathroom. The Surf Shack room has a double bed with a bunk on top that can sleep 3. In the closet there is also a queen air mattress. The Seashell room has a queen bed and a large closet that has 2 twin mattress in it. Across the hall is the beach guest bathroom, with a large deep tub. The kitchen is very large, equipped with everything you will need and more. It offers you double ovens, spacious counter space,TV, a built in cabinet area for your computer, a fireplace and a large seating area. The Florida room has a 50' TV, tropical couch and recliner with extra chairs in laundry room if needed. There are sliding glass doors which open to the verandah and pool area. Our home is located less than a mile from the ocean, you can hear it in the quiet of the mornings while sitting outside enjoying your coffee and making plans for your day. People love looking at the landscaped backyard overlooking the pool. We provide bikes that you can jump on and take a ride to the Amphitheater, Alligator Farm, Surf Shop or beach. You can also take the 312 bridge over to the mainland for great shopping and 13 area restaurants. Anastasia Island is one of the coast best kept secrets. You'll be in heaven if fishing is your thing, our inland waters here have the best reds, trout, flounder and sheep head around. Our offshore fishing is a haven for divers and fisherman because of the many underwater wrecks in the area.They bring in trophy fish that arrive daily from charters that leave every morning from the Conch House. The Yacht Basin at Comanche Cove is home to the Annual East Coast Marlin Bill Fish Tournament. Take a day or two to visit Historic Downtown St. Augustine. It's just north 2.5 miles over the famous 'Bridge of Lions' and it will take you back in time. Don't forget to visit the Fort, ride the Trolley or the horse drawn buggies. They have a wonderful story about the history of St. Augustine. Take a walk on St. George Street with its nostalgic, unique clothing shops, coffee shops, specialty fudge and candy shops. Make a stop at a local restaurant where you can sit, set down your bags be served some homemade artichoke dip, your favorite drink while taking in the sound of a local artists playing a guitar and singing for hours. Its dripping with culture and full of surprises. There is something for everyone and the sounds and views change at every corner. Walk the cobblestone streets, take a lot of pictures and fill your bags while you make memories with your loved ones. Bring sun block, a bathing suit, a pair of shorts and real comfortable flip-flops because you won't need much more than that. The views are spectacular and the scenery is unforgettable. It will be one of your most fun filled relaxing vacations yet. You will come back often as most our guest do.

About Lisa Francis

My husband and I have 3 children from 32-19. I was born in St. Augustine and love the area and always find something new to see. We currently live in Jacksonville. We love to jump on our bikes and ride downtown to historic St. Augustine, stopping at all the bistros and listening to local musicians. We hope you will love it as we do:) Lisa

Lisa Francis purchased this house in 2012

Why Lisa Francis chose St. Augustine Area

After searching for over a year we knew this house was the one as soon as we saw it. Being close to the beach, with a large pool and the house is family and pet friendly. Its open large kitchen gives room for everyone to be in there but not in each others way. We also wanted to provide a game room and outside shower house for when our guest come back from the beach for the kids to rinse off and have a place to have fun. We had a vision to turn this home into a beach oasis and I feel we have accomplished it and now want to share it with our guest.

It is also our personal home that we share and just ask for everyone to respect it:)Lisa

What makes this house unique

Its a lovely home you and your family will make wonderful memories, going to the beach, exploring the area, and eating at some of the best restaurants around. While also learning some amazing history and having beautiful scenery to take pictures of. Some guest just love being at the house, enjoying the pool, while grilling out on a beautiful sunny day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

From the moment we drove up into the driveway we knew this was going to be not your regular run of the mill VRBO rental. The creativeness and the cool beachy decor was amazing and has so much to offer from the wonderful location to the beautifully landscaped yard. This house was perfect for our family and our pet daucshund who loved running around in the privacy fenced in large backyard, with a beautiful pool. We were close to the beach and a lot of great restaurants, that we took full advantage of. We would recommend this house to anyone who likes a step above the normal. We like working with owners rather management teams, and Lisa was easy, funny and willing to go over the call of duty, she is only a phone call away. Don't hesitate to rent this home!

Property review - St. Augustine Beach

  • 5 of 5

Simply one word is needed - OUTSTANDING. I can certainly use words like awesome, amazing and great, but to keep it simply, this place was exceptional. The property was well kept, very clean and a spacious kitchen settled in a quiet neighborhood. FIVE stars without a doubt.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Really not sure what to add that other reviews have not spoken about, everything was great, well except the weather. But with all this house had to offer, everyone in our family, including our shepherd who watch lizards and squirrels most of the time while out in the fenced in yard, had a great time. Will return next summer, and will keep our fingers crossed for better weather. Hope to see more sights next year.

Thanks Lisa and Steve, for sharing your home with us.

The coziest beach house ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying in your home so very much. It was comfortable and had everything we needed. We were close to the beach and downtown St. Augustine! The kids loved the game room. The beds are all so cozy and comfortable. The house is decorated perfectly. We can't wait to go back!

Amazing Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The owners have truly created a beautiful and relaxing beach home. There isn't a thing they have missed providing. My grand children lived in the pool and game room. The adults had plenty of relaxing areas to unwind and enjoy. This home is spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen area is large and beautiful. We will definitely want to return. Thank you so much for your thoughtful and perfect home.
