Hello, I have owned and managed properties for over 15 years. Previously I was a Banker for 15 years. I also owned a very successful St. Augustine home decor store!
Why chose between the beach or your own pool? Carpe Diem has both! Just 200 hundred steps to the dog friendly beach. Wireless Internet is also included during your stay!
I just wanted to say thank you for your time in booking our stay last week at Carpe Diem. In all the rentals it was by far the most spacious and accommodating of all that we have stayed. The location was perfect, size amazing for 9 and great price!
Our family of seven adults and six children enjoyed a relaxing week at Carpe Diem. Although the pool was a little small for all the children ay once, the beach was only about a block away. It worked perfectly for the grandparents to use the large suite above the garage for a quieter stay The spotless home had loads of towels and a very well equipped kitchen. There was plenty of living space for all kinds of activities. It is close to all the activities that are offered in St. Augustine. We would highly recommend this lovely home.
Great location, close to beach. Easy quick 5 minute drive to downtown St. Augustine. Nice place inside and out. Well maintained and had all the basic necessities. Plenty of room and nice and open. Rental owners/ agent very nice and pleasant.
The house is beautiful and in a quiet neighborhood. The pool is smaller than what it looks like in pictures. There are only three real bedrooms. I can't imagine sleeping 14 adults because they include sofa beds. No adult wants to sleep on a roll away bed or sofa bed and pay that price. The house is stocked well with plenty of towels and dishes. Has a very nice washer and dryer. Close to the beach. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
Beautiful spacious house, has all the comforts of home. Short walk to the beach and close to several restaurants. Only a 10-15 minute drive to downtown St Augustine. We will be back next year.
We found this property almost perfect for our family of 11 ranging in age from 4 months to 72 years. We cooked some almost every day even if it was just breakfast and found the kitchen to be nicely stocked with cookware and utensils. Plenty of sleeping room and having two master suites made it very comfortable. Every bedroom has a private bath and there is a half bath on main level. The open floor plan made it easy for all of us to be in the family room/kitchen area at the same time. The only problem we had was with the bedding in the small queen bedroom The mattress was truly awful and very uncomfortable for the adult couple who had that room. That is our only complaint about the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit (except for that mattress). Oh, one more bit of advice - Do NOT go to the Alligator farm in June - smells awful and hot beyond belief.
The home is very nice except if you think you are renting 4 full bedrooms. The 4th bedroom was a total waste it only had a single Murphy bed and 2 very uncomfortable cots. The bathroom shower had roaches and a dirty mat. The location is not St Augustine it is on VillanoBeach which is nice it's just not in St Augustin as advertised. Cindy at the rental office is lovely.
