Overview

St. Augustine Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, or Studio (Sleeps 16-20) 3 private rental under one roof all super privat

Can't get closer to the ocean. Direct oceanfront home with 3 private floors, all with private entrances. Each floor has a kitchen and full size bathroom. House has an extra large outside Deck on beach with built in seating. Private dock & private beach entrance. House is located in St. Augustine on the small island of Summer Haven. Located one mile north of Marineland. We are on a rare (for St. Augustine) no driving part of the beach so no worries about passing cars. Our beach is almost not accessible for public access, without climbing down some steep rocks .25 mile from this property. We are directly on Atlantic Ocean but you can also see the Matanzas River and the Inner Coastal waterway. From the top floor you can see the historical Fort Matanzas. Since we sit on this access the wildlife is amazing. Sea Turtles, Dolphins and Manatees go back and forth daily in front of this property in and out of salt and fresh water. Our area of the Inner Coastal sits on 25 miles of undeveloped state owned natural habitat. So the water is one of the most unpolluted water areas in the state of Florida which brings fisherman and birders from all over to this sanctuary areas. Our area is very private with no crime and the feeling of safety for those that want to let their kids go free on the beach without worry. No worries about a long walk from your bedroom to the beach you pretty much are on the beach all the time without touching the sand. Property next to ours is not developed so the property and house has no obstructed views of ocean from any rooms. If you cycle we are a few miles from some of the best mountain biking and miles and miles of paved trails, most totally shaded. This property is called an artist Haven, and The Center of the Universe. A very very rare Florida Beach spot. A Oprah book has been written here and countless pieces of art and song writing has happened on this treasured tree house property. Come relax and enjoy our private beach paradise.

About LynCherie Kaplan

We purchased this house not planning to rent but it has such a strong rental history over the last 15-20 years we can't help but share it.

LynCherie Kaplan purchased this house in 2011

Why LynCherie Kaplan chose St. Augustine Area

Unique home on a basically almost private non driving beach very private beach space. Every day the beach looks different because of the inlet being so close. State protected property on north side of inlet across from the property. Matanzas inlet one of the top 10 beaches in the U.S. 2015 travel Chanel.

What makes this house unique

Gated property -Privacy with a large group you can rent two apartments and have fun with your friends and family and still have your own space

Spectacular vacation

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier anywhere in the St. Augustine, Crescent Beach, or Matanzas inlet area. The view here is spectacular and shows itself in many colors each day. The birds fly by in formation, and the dolphins bring us smiles as they play right before us in the surf. Lynne is a gracious hostess and makes her guests feel right at home. Each season provides it's own special feel and I love them all! Million dollar view is just the right name for this ocean front home.

Perfect Beach Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite place to go for a week-end get away. The views are amazing and the sound of the ocean waves offer a relaxing break from reality. You are only minutes to downtown St Augustine and the dining possibilities are endless. Thank you Lynne and Sander for sharing your little piece of heaven.

Million Dollar View

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This spot was glorious. So comfortable, immaculate and close to everything. We tried some top notch restaurants a short drive away. There is even a little fish sandwich shop across the street. At the same time, the kitchen was very well appointed.

We were three retirees and could not have been more relaxed.

Thanks to the owners for making this a great getaway.

Peaceful Beach Bungalow!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express how precious this home and location are. We were pleasantly surprised with the amazing view our 2nd floor bungalow provided us. The bungalow's beachy décor was quaint and homey. It had all the comforts of home. My husband and I witnessed beautiful sunrises in the morning with dolphins jumping in the distance. The home owners did an amazing job on their deck. It had plenty of seating to enjoy the beach breezes and salty air. The location was absolutely amazing! People were out surfing and paddle boarding. Boats big and small were sited off shore. The beach just in front of the bungalow had several rock formations that provided a great adventure for our family. As the beach receded, several pools of water were left behind where we found starfish, several types of fish, and some beautiful shells! The kids loved playing on the huge sandbar, it was too cold for us to get in the water completely, but it was a perfect place to kick off your shoes and roll up your pants! At night, we opened the windows to hear the waves crashing in the distance. It was absolute paradise!!! There are many things to do in the area and a nice restaurant just across the street. The owners, Lynne and Sander were very accommodating, making sure we had everything we needed. I will definitely return!!!

Amazing location with some problems

  • 3 of 5

As im looking through my photos on my phone I realized I forgot to write my review. What a magnificent location! This area is very interesting and there is tons of stuff to do. But-as another reviewer mentioned we had problems with construction- unsightly wreckage everywhere that ruined the view (even a port-a-potty!) It would have been great to have known about that ahead of time- or have been offered a discount as most places would do. Also- lots of people at the property so don't expect much in the way of privacy. Our floor was extremely musty and gave me asthma breathing difficulties at night (I don't have asthma). I noticed lots of mold in the AC vents. Otherwise- a charming rustic vacation spot.

Owner's Response: We were doing construction on our sea wall at that time and it could not be helped we all were on this part of the beach. I am sorry your stay was not what you had expected, we went over and beyond to make everything ok for you. This is my 1st negative review, we have never had anyone complain about allergies we have a split system AC that cleans the air and is anti allergy and we clean the filters monthly.

Awesome Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beach house for a week to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday and we couldn't of imagined how awesome that week would be! The pictures don't even do it justice. We rented the 1st and 2nd floor because we had 14 people staying there and it was plenty of room for everyone. We will definitely be renting this house again in the near future. If you love the ocean and waking up to amazing sunrises and beautiful sunsets then this house is for you! I just can not say enough good things about our stay!
