Saint Augustine Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Large, updated 1 bedroom cottage located in an intimate, beachfront resort

Pelican Cottage is located on a quiet, oceanfront retreat on nearly 2 acres of natural, dune property with the pristine beaches of Anastasia Island as the front yard. It is located just south of historic St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. Pelican cottage has a brand new bathroom, all new appliances and new granite counter tops! A large 1 bedroom cottage with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, HD TV, high-speed Xfinity wireless internet and more. Enjoy beautiful white sand beaches with swimming, surfing, fishing, barbecue in a private, natural setting. We also supply beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, scuba masks for the kids, fishing gear, small cooler, carts to tote down the beach path and much more.

With only 2 cottages and 3 suites on the entire oceanfront property, it feels like your own, private tropical escape. Pelican Cottage, Kemp's Cottage, Hawksbill Suite, Monarch Suite and Ridley Suite are all listed on VRBO and available for rental starting in June 2013. Choose to view all listings below for more information. The extensive renovations included replacing most of the systems, insulation and soundproofing, new windows, doors, bathrooms and kitchens, providing luxurious accommodations to the perfect St. Augustine, beachfront vacation.

The newly landscaped property includes many tall palms, flowering tropical plants and places to relax. When you follow the path to the beach you'll come across many native plants and will get to know the original residents of the land including the gopher tortoise, the wildlife that their burrows support, the monarch butterflies as they migrate, and many species of birds. Lounge in the courtyard, cool off in the pristine waters of Crescent Beach, surf at one of the best surfing beaches in Florida, visit one of the many great restaurants, or cook in your well-equipped kitchen.

If you need something else, ask our helpful onsite staff, call or email, we are there to make sure your time at The Silver Sands is second to none.

Guestbook comments from the manager

From Trip Advisor:

A very friendly and peaceful place to stay. Small number of units makes one feel at home and able to meet and be friends with everyone staying there. Beach was great, internet access was great. There were many things there that we took with us such as umbrellas, beach towels, beach chairs, etc and even toothbrushes as a special touch. Next time we will take fewer things. Beds were very comfortable. Great place for an individual retreat or for a family. Nice grilling areas and very clean. Very nice management personnel. We will definitely return.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Pelican Cottage at Silver Sands was the perfect place for the two of us. The cottage had everything we needed and then some. The place was very clean and very convenient to many things we wanted to do. It was very sweet when we arrived to find some chocolate goodies on the counter!! We would definitely return to this gem as well as recommend this place.

Relaxing, Refreshing, Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The location of the Silvers Sands for us was the perfect location 15 minutes to the hustle and bustle of downtown Saint Augustine. The beautiful coastal drive to town was enjoyable, A1A has many locations for dinning along the way and Publix was not far.

The Pelican Cottage was the perfect size for my husband and myself. The cottage is well stocked, we actually did not have to purchase anything for our 4 day stay except food. The beds were comfortable which is not the norm in most rental properties.

The updated bathroom and kitchen was a plus as well as the cleanliness. The pictures are accurate as well.

I had the fortunate opportunity to meet Betty who is a literally a phone call away if needed and responds within minutes. I wish i had more time with her as she was delightful.

Last of all the incredible beach!! I woke up everyday and watched the sunrise. The views from this location were beautiful, i was surprised that most residents sleep thru the sunrise we basically had the beach to ourselves. I think the cottage should have a few pictures taken of the Sunrise and placed on the walls so everyone knows what their missing is they sleep late. Just saying!!

Rob and i enjoyed every minute of our stay and will return for many years to come. This review could go on and on but life goes on and we must get back to the real world.

Thank you Betty and Silver Sands!!!!!!!!!

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Silver Sands and we were happy with the cottage. It was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed.

Silver Sand's Management strives to think of anything you may need during your stay: matches to light the grill, extra beach towels, toilet paper, dishwashing soap, washing detergent, even a beach bag in case you have forgotten yours. These may be small items, but how nice to have them right there without having to make a run to the store for it. The location is perfect. Good aura! The beach is lovely and you have everything you need. We stayed with friends who rented the cottage next door. For them it was the first time and they agreed that we all have to come back. I can't imagine every staying anywhere else when in St. Augustine or Crescent Beach!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Silver Sands before and enjoyed our stay both times. I love the aesthetics of the cottages and having the conveniences of washer/dryer and a kitchen. Management is available if you need them. Loved seeing a marsh bunny and the tortoises on the property. Crescent beach is beautiful with soft white sand and beautiful water. Make a point to walk down to Matanzas Inlet.

Tranquil Paradise!

The property is very quiet and very safe. The Pelican Cottage was beautiful, clean, and well equipped. The plentiful chairs and beach toys was awesome. Everything went perfectly and we will always stay here for future St. Augustine vacations.
