Why Donna M Wilson chose St. Augustine Area

Our family has been vacationing here for about 10 years. Our extended family gets together here twice a year. We all loved it so much that we each bought a house here!

What makes this house unique

We love to come here with our two daughters and our dog Hank. We love that we can just walk to the beach, leave our things and come and go as we want due to the close proximity to the beach. We love the Farmer's Market which is on Wednesday's at the pier and that we can walk or take the beachcombers. It is so conveniently located to either downtown (10 min drive) or Disney (1 3/4 hours drive). We never want to leave once we are here!!!

Very nice cottage one block from the beach

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy staying at this lovel cottage in St. Augustine! Most everything one needed was just a few blocks away. The decor is very "beachy" which is perfect for this cottage. Nearly everything one would need in a vacation rental was provided in the cottage. Our labradoodle loved the spacious yard and we appreciated the fence for her to run around in.

Nautical Smile - Exceeded our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Nautical Smile was a wonderful place to stay. Very clean and a nice fenced backyard for our pups. Nautical Smile had everything we needed for cooking at while staying there and plenty of bath and beach towels. Truly a very short walk to an amazing beach, close to town, restaurants, grocery stores, and the like.

We would love to go back and highly recommend to anyone looking to stay at St. Augustine Beach!!

Great beach house..

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time staying at Nautical Smile. It was perfect when we stayed there three years ago and it was just as perfect this time. Everything you could want is already there and the home is spotlessly clean. The best thing of course is that our four legged babies loved the back yard and we knew that they were secure and safe. The only problem we had was working the new "Direct" TV. The problem was that we are "technology challenged." However, Frank and Donna walked us through and solved the problem. Highly recommend this rental.

Loved this place!

  • 4 of 5

This lovely home is in a convenient location to the beach, restaurants, and all of the tourist attractions. It had all we needed for the week. The nice sized fenced in yard was perfect for our two dogs. I will definitely stay here again.
