Overview

About the property

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. A perfect place for the person that enjoys walks through a natural environment, the beach, swimming and all the area has to offer. 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.

Pelican Cottage at Silver Sands allowed us a relaxing beach getaway for our family of 4.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect space for our family of four (kids ages 9 & 7). Loved walking right out to the beach. Extremely nice to have chairs (good ones), boogie boards, umbrellas, sand toys and pails, all right there for us. Cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Very quiet property and private beach.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our five year anniversary. We really enjoyed. The cottage was very clean and she provided all the basics that you needed. She even hid those painted rocks around the grounds, we had fun looking for those with our son. We will stay here again.

Beautiful Home, Location, & Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on this property and everything that came with it. Private access to the beach, clean lovely home, lovely owners, and all the amenities you could need!!!! We loved

seeing all tortoise's on the property and rabbits. Having a private patio with a BBQ was an added bonus, and the owner's even had charcoal/lighter fluid/matches ready to go. The home was stocked with everything you needed to feel comfortable. One thing that was a huge game changer was all the fold out beach chairs, beach sun umbrellas, boogie boards, kids sand toys, beach towels, and outdoor shower. We only had one small issue with some ants in the bathroom and the owners came immediately to fix this and were awesome about it. The beach itself was just about as private as it comes, and had days where we barely saw anyone out there.

The owners were very informative on fun activities to do, and really wanted you to enjoy your stay! We ran into a couple of our neighbors, but had full privacy and never felt like we were at a resort.

This home has everything you need to enjoy a memory lasting experience in St. Augustine and have already been recommending it to friends & family!

Best,

Will, Kat, & Rachael.

Beautiful & Complete

  • 5 of 5

The Pelican Cottage at the Silver Sands is a wonderful vacation spot. The cottage was clean, fully stocked with everything you could want or need for a beautiful beach vacation. In addition to the loveliest nearly private beach, you are also close to downtown St. Augustine which is full fun and activities. This was our second visit to the Silver Sands and I definitely plan on returning. Being provided with tons of amenities both in the cottage and for the beach makes this a hassle-free destination. Plus seeing the turtles wander around is just precious. I'll say again, that the nearly private beach, with it's clean, clear and sparkling water is such a hidden gem. One of our favorite vacations spots.
