Why Nick Dudney chose St. Augustine Area

We just finished this property as a retreat for my family. The location is absolutely perfect and the views are surreal. The house really came together nicely. We decorated and built almost all of the furniture ourselves to really capture the Coastal Elegant look we were after. This is a upscale luxury rental and not the typical beach house.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to 2 restaurants and directly beside Castle Otttis. Beach Access right across the street. 1000 square foot Sky Deck on the 4th Floor.

Absolutely Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you pull into the driveway the house is stunning! The inside is bright and airy during the day but at night it's surprisingly cozy with all the unique light fixtures. The layout of the house is great for family get togethers and fit our family of 12 comfortably. Right across the street from Vilano Beach, walking distance to amazing restaurants, and a 10 minute drive to the historic downtown St. Augustine, makes this house worth every cent. We loved our stay and can't wait to book our next vacation at Castlegate.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

What a house! The rooftop deck was amazing, we could see the beach on one side and watch the sunset over the intercoastal on the other. The decor was beautiful too, we used it for inspiration in our new house. There was enough room for our entire family and the house was big enough that we could all spend time together in the main living area area and also enjoy time separately in the different areas on other floors. The kitchen was great, it had everything we needed. There are a few restaurants and a grocery store very close by and downtown St. Augustine is only a few minutes away. The owner was very attentive to our needs before and during our stay. We will definitely be staying here again!

Gorgeous!! Perfect for a family vacation!

Far and above the typical beach rental home - the views are spectacular! The home is tastefully decorated and very well appointed. The property is gorgeous and filled with too many amenities to list.

Wonderful home, I would definitely stay again!

Classic Coastal Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Great holiday memories were made in your beautifully decorated classic coastal home! We can't say enough about how amazing the house is and everyone was in awe from the minute we stepped through the front door. The house was exceptionally clean and spacious for everyone to be comfortable. We enjoyed cooking out on the paved courtyard that looks over a very well-designed, lush landscape and every evening we took advantage of the fabulous Florida sunsets from your rooftop. It was such a unique experience!

Location IS everything therefore, we were pleased to know that we were only minutes away from Publix, as well as historic downtown St. Augustine. We took in the Nights of Lights as well as the many shops, boutiques, and restaurants that were offered down there. Thank you very much for the important part you played in making our visit memorable and the holiday of a lifetime! All the best!

Relaxing Beachside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough amazing things about this house. It's location is perfect! Located by the beach so you have the tranquility you want yet close enough to Downtown St. Augustine to enjoy a night out on the town after enjoying the beach all day long. The finishes and attention to detail in the house are top notch unlike other vacation rentals I've stayed at. Ideal for a family beach getaway like ours. I would recommend this to anybody and WILL be returning on another family vacation.
