There is so much more to our Surf View house than meets the eye! Just 3 houses from the beach, it offers a patio, yard, huge deck with partial ocean views, a crow's nest with vast views, and a outdoor patio area and kitchenette downstairs. Wow!
Surrounded by wooded areas on two sides and boasting a shady backyard full of good climbing trees, Surfer View makes you feel delightfully secluded from the bustle of a busy beach town. Sit on our back patio with a cool drink, enjoy a casual meal on our huge second-floor deck overlooking our quiet street, or sunbathe in our crow's nest, where you can see for miles in every direction. There are lovely spaces at Surf View for peace, contemplation, and serene enjoyment.
Of course, there are also plenty of places for fun! Gather the whole group in the upstairs living room to watch a favorite movie, listen to music, or play games together. Our large HDTV with surround-sound makes watching anything a little more exciting, and throughout the house you will find other TVs, along with DVD player. Your vacation needs a soundtrack, after all!
You'll love our open, airy living and dining area, with 2 sets of sliding glass doors leading out to the long, wide deck. You can see the horizon from the couches, and our dining table (with 6 exceedingly comfortable chairs, just in case supper turns into a marathon Trivial Pursuit tournament!) is set right beside one set of doors, so that sunlight splashes over you as you dine. Oh, go ahead -- pick up your plate and glass and head out into that balmy sea-kissed air!
Our kitchen is pristine and ready to be useful, even if cooking is a very low priority for you this vacation. Fill up the fridge and pantry with food and drink, pull out the microwave, coffeemaker, and other necessary time-savers, and be on your way in no time! Our retro-look teal countertops and linoleum may remind you of beach houses from your childhood, but the long windows, up-to-the-minute appliances, and track lighting are thoroughly modern! And if you should get lucky and bring back some trout from a fishing expedition, you'll find all the pots, pans, dishes, and utensils you need to turn it into a gourmet feast.
The one place you won't find full of sunshine at Surfer View is the master suite, which has small, high windows to maximize your privacy and keep the room sleepily dark. A luxurious king-sized bed, TV, sleeper sofa and en suite bathroom make the master a lovely retreat that encourages early bedtimes and late mornings!
Surf View is the ideal vacation home for two families traveling together or for a couple with teenagers, for the downstairs of our home can be made as separate as you like. Our 1st floor offers a kitchenette, dining area and patio access.
Two more bedrooms are located downstairs: a lovely room with a double-sized bed, as well as a larger room with 2 single beds, and a futon sleeper. Parents with large families may be delighted to let the kids take over the downstairs during their stay, or to give the upstairs bedroom to the grandparents.
Be sure to enjoy our deck at Surf View. Partly in shade much of the day, this is a great place to curl up with a book, update your status on Facebook (you have free wireless Internet at Surf View), or bring your binoculars to get a better look at all those birds you've been hearing. The evenings are long and beautiful here, and you're going to love this space! Of course, if you get bored, there's a porch swing downstairs and a panoramic view up in the crow's nest to divert you!
The silky white sands of St. Augustine Beach are just minutes away, while the Intracoastal Waterway is just behind you. World-class golf, shopping, dining, and sightseeing abound here. Come have fun in our Florida paradise!
This rental worked out perfect for our spring break vacation. Honestly the pictures do not do the home justice as it was nicer then we expected with plenty of room for our family of five and our maltipoo. The house is such a short walk right to beach and from front balcony you can see and hear the ocean. There are two large sliding doors that we kept open during the day to feel the ocean breezes. Beach is very quiet and private with no condos around so we felt like we had our own little slice of the beach. We took our dog on the beach everyday and he had the absolute best week of his whole puppy life. The front porch is great for eating on and the crows nest is great for watching the sunset (and flying kites). The kitchen is well stocked and we ate most meals at the house. I loved how roomy and spacious the layout was giving our teenagers plenty of room to spread out. We did laundry every night which is so helpful with our large family and all their beach towels. Also a nice little backyard convenient for taking our puppy out. We also really appreciated the owners leaving information on suggested restaurants and the "cool and not cool" list of things to do in St.Augustine.
We had a great vacation at the spacious home just a short walk to the beach - very convenient. The home had everything we needed. Enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets all week long. The bikes were great and unexpected...we rode bikes every day on the beach. This location on the beach is perfect as it had the least amount of people due to the residential nature of the neighborhood. Finally, the owners were great...communicated quickly, addressed all of our questions and covered everything we needed via email and phone. We will stay again when we go to St. Augustine area! Thanks for everything.
This beach house has all the amenities you need for a fun filled vacation to the beautiful St.Augustine. The beach is only a short walk away and is beautiful and pet friendly. The home has bikes and chairs with make for a fun filled vacation. With the living space open it is very spacious. With the many levels we were able to see a beautiful sunrise as well as sunset. Just the perfect house for our girls getaway.
Wow! This was the perfect vacation destination for my family. It's a 3 minute walk to the beach! The house is very large with a fantastic open floor plan and gorgeous views of the ocean. It was ideal for my family. The house has a wonderful open flow...the great room is open to the kitchen and dining area making it a great place to hang out for meals and boardgames. There are multiple decks and we especially loved the one off family room for eating, entertaining and enjoying the gorgeous ocean view. The master bedroom/bath are huge and the additional bedrooms are all nicely sized. The lower level bonus room allowed me to make my conference calls and get some work done. Spacious, clean as a whistle and located in a prime location, this home is far a away the nicest place we've rented in St. Augustine!
