Breathtaking ocean views, multiple balconies, and elegantly decorated rooms are yours at Starfish House, our 3-storey home at Ocean Hammock Resort. Vacation in style with all the amenities of a resort combined with the spaciousness and privacy of a house!
Starfish House is a Mediterranean-style home on a quiet side street just steps from the beach. Lush tropical landscaping surrounds its yellow exterior, which looks delightfully sun-bleached. Step inside and you're in a giant great room, with a cathedral ceiling, huge fireplace, TV, hardwood floors, and comfortable furniture. French doors lead out to a sun-washed balcony. This is beach living at its very finest!
Perfect for a family or large group, Starfish House has 3 roomy bedrooms & a twin sleeper sofa that sleep 9 people comfortably, 3 full bathrooms, several separate balcony and deck areas, and best of all, a crow's nest viewing spot on the rooftop with panoramic vistas! You will feel literally on top of the world as you survey the Atlantic Ocean, the cinnamon-colored sands of the beach, the lush dunes, and beautiful Ocean Hammock Resort! It's a great place to stargaze too, and if you happen to get up early enough, be sure to sprint up here for an unbelievable view of the sunrise!
On the top floor, the master suite is a delight, with a king-size canopy bed from which you can look out through the French doors and beyond the balcony. There is a TV in here, soft carpeting, and a full bathroom with a deluxe shower en suite. Drenched in soft, warm colors, it's a cozy nest for long morning lie-ins!
On the main floor, the second bedroom also boasts an en suite bathroom -- very convenient if you're traveling with another couple! This room is sunny as well, with a queen-size bed.
Our third bedroom contains two double beds and is next to another full bathroom, just perfect for the kids or friends. And since all of the linens, blankets, pillows, and towels are provided for you here at Starfish House, you need never worry about packing extras. When it's time to freshen them, just pop them into our washer and dryer. All the conveniences of home, but in a splendid new setting!
Speaking of splendid, the kitchen at Starfish House is a chef's dream, with gleaming stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and all the built-ins that save you valuable time at the beach. In this kitchen (which is large enough for two cooks to work without banging elbows!) you'll find everything you need to prepare a feast and serve it in style in our window-filled dining room, equipped with a long polished wood table and fine rattan chairs. Of course, if takeout is more your style, turn the dining area into a game table and pull out the blender and microwave for frosty beverages and tasty snacks!
Of course, most of your time at Starfish House will probably be spent outdoors, on one of our balconies and decks. We have an ultra-comfortable hammock, just perfect for finishing that beach novel or catching a quick nap in the balmy sea breeze. And with free wireless Internet, the balconies are a great place to take your electronics and catch up on email or social media. So peaceful and beautiful -- the balconies are highly addictive! There is a bonus 4th full bathroom on the 1st level perfect for washing off sand.
If you can tear yourself away, do stroll down to the beach. The cinnamon-colored sands are marvelous, the waves are alluring, and the sunrise is a sight never to be forgotten. This is a family-oriented beach, with shells and fossils to be discovered at low tide, sandcastles to be built, and waves to be ridden.
Starfish House is the gated community of Cinnamon Beach Resort, adjacent to the renowned Ocean Hammock Resort and Golf Course. Our resort offers 2 heated swimming pools -- one with a zero-slope entrance for easy accessibility -- plus a Jacuzzi, and a clubhouse with 2 gamerooms, fitness center, and café. Walking trails weave through the beautiful grounds. There is so much to see and do here, the whole family will be entertained.

The rental was great... My family had a blast in St Augustine. I really wish the water would have been a little warmer and a little cleaner but over all It was one of the best vacations we've had. The Starfish location was awesome. Plenty of room for my entire family. Very clean and very home feeling. I had family show up from different parts of the country and they were all very much impressed. Great Place!!!
My family and I we had a great time, the beach was beautiful and the neighborhood so well maintain . We will come back soon.
We arrived to a great house complete with easy beach access and a short walk to the pools. The house was generally clean and in good condition. Check-in at the gate was quite a wait even though we arrived hours before check-in time. The beach and pools were very nice. We were pleased with everything about our stay with the exception of 3 things. First, the water takes a very very long time to get hot. Then we discovered that the dial on the washer was broken so we could not wash clothes. We called immediately and a repair man came out and said they would have to order a part. He said the part should be in the next day. He did not return until afternoon before we departed. We also did not have garage door openers each time we left or returned in the car, someone would have to run inside and go down the stairs to open or close the garage doors. This was difficult with little children in the car. We called immediately and were told that someone would pick up new ones and deliver them to the house. The afternoon before we departed, someone brought a new garage door opener to the house. This was unexpected and frustrating. Overall, though, this was a good house for our family vacation.
This was our first family vacation with our daughters and new sons-in-law, and first time we rented a house for our entire family. The location we found very convenient..close to the pool and beach. Each day, some very nice young men set up chairs and umbrellas for us at the was nice not to have to carry our own. The size of the house met our needs, and though cleanly, it was not that well appointed. Furniture, pillows could be updated. The one bedroom was not that great..hard mattresses and older bedding that wasn't crisp..walls could be painted. The master shower has two heads...but one control was not working and the water took several minutes to begin to warm up and never really got hot. The pots and pans were older and the coffee pot carafe wasn't original to the coffee maker, so the first morning we had coffee spilling everywhere. Some of these comments address little things, however, when spending at decent amount of money for the week, we had hoped for a little more. Overall, we had a nice time and would use this company again; however, I am not sure we would recommend this particular house in its present condition.
We have rented many beach properties over the years in this price range and this was the worst property we have ever rented. The TV's were very small and sound cuts in and out about every thirty seconds, very annoying. The cable never worked in one of the bedrooms. We tried to adjust the cable box and noticed the box was dated 2001. We called the management office to report, 36 hours later, got a return call from an answering service and cable was never fixed. The outside dining table was so rusted we were not able to eat at the table. The bikes in the garage all had rusted chains with chains off, unable to ride. The ping pong table was totally disassembled and parts thrown all over the garage. None of the furniture in the house matched. The furniture looked like it was picked up at a garage sale. Furniture in the main living room was ripped and one chair have a broken leg. There were no dressers to put clothes away any of the bedrooms. Near the end of the week we tried to use washer and it too was broken. Called management office again, got answering service again, asked for a quick return call, never got return call. Instructions were left on days/times to take trash out to street. While we were inside the house in the evening people went inside the garage and took trash down to the street. This was VERY DISTURBING. They came the next morning while we were at the pool and got into the house again. All of our personal items were inside the house, computers, jewelry, money, credit cards. Again no return call from answering service. The pools and beach were very nice.
The location of this house - 5 minutes walk to beach - worked for our party. The community & beach were lovely and pet friendly. The linens in the 3 rd bedroom were in poor condition - bed covering had tears. The bathrooms on the main level needs some minor repairs. Kitchen very well stocked with plates, glasses etc I was disappointed that the security deposit was not refunded when the unit was found to be in good repair.
