Perfect Beach Place

  • 5 of 5

Great time at Vitamin Sea. So much space. Beautiful sunrises. Beautiful beach. So peaceful. So much room. All you need for a big crowd at the beach. We had families from 3 states staying for a wedding held in St. Augustine. They have it all. Thanks so much to Rick and Jenny for providing us a great home for the week.

Beautiful beach property

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I booked this house for us and our family from New Zealand for our wedding at the beginnning of December! It had the perfect amount of rooms for all 12 of us. Loved the two living rooms which allowed us to all have our own space. Even though the recent damage from the hurricanes was evident in the dunes, beach and houses around us it didn't take away from the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. With it being about a 10-15 min drive from down town St. Augustine made it easy to spend time in the city. Rick and Jenny were so lovely and always had answers or help with any questions. Would definitely recommend staying here and would definitely visit again!

Beautiful, spacious home that was perfect for our family gathering. We had 8 adults and 4 children in our group and had plenty of space for everyone. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you'll need to cook for a crowd. We definitely enjoyed our weekend at the beach!

Vitamin Sea is a wonderful house for a group.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of a few families. Each bedroom was very comfortable and with so many to choose from, we were able to accommodate each family. Just the perfect beach house with everything you need to have a great beach relaxing vacation! The manager was very gracious and everything was just as described. We thank Rick and Jenny for allowing us to rent the perfect beach house!

This home is located in a perfect spot for your next vacation! Private yet close to many attractions. Located right on the beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. You might want to start your day by surfing, paddle boarding, surf fishing, scanning the beach for your favorite shells or relaxing with coffee on the oceanfront deck. Being just 10 minutes to downtown St. Augustine - the oldest city in the US - you can enjoy the historical sites, alligator farm with a zip line feature, wonderful restaurants, cobblestone streets to stroll while enjoying boutique shopping or seeking a lively bar or top quality restaurant. There is so much to do so close there will never be a dull moment. Yet again, if you just want to relax, the beach and ocean are in your back yard. Ahhh.
