Saint Augustine Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Large, 2 Bedroom cottage, on a small, beachfront resort

Kemp's cottage is situated in 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. Originally, this was the owners house and they built additional units starting at the back corner of the house which have now been configured into suites. Kemp's Cottage was entirely renovated in 2013 with a new kitchen, washer/dryer, HD TV, 50 mbps wireless internet and more. Note, the fireplace is not operational. Enjoy beautiful white sand beaches with swimming, surfing, fishing, barbecue in a private, natural setting. We also supply beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, 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, 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 owner

From Trip Advisor:



My wife and I spent a week in the newly renovated Kemps Cottage - - it was perfect. The pristine beach is a quick walk over the dune line and the many activities of old Saint Augustine are just up the road. Everything from appliances to furniture to tile was new and first rate. We had guests visit virtually every day and all commented on the "Beach Cottage" charm of the cottage. We'll be back!

Our perfect stay in Kemps Cottage 10/18/2016 - 11/22/2016

  • 4 of 5

Everything was perfect during our 5-weeks stay in Kemps Cottage, not in the least thanks to our hosts Betty and Dana who gave us every attention and care. The cottage was much to our liking, both from the outside as from the inside, stylish and comfortable (however modestly furnished),

clean and equipped with everything one needs, even during a longer stay.

The cottage is situated on the calmer (southern) side of St Augustine, making it a perfect place for elderly people like us, appreciating its peacefulness within close vicinity of the ocean and the beautiful beach there. Don't look for attractions nearby (St A some 10 miles away).

Friends advised us to visit the west coast of Florida as well, so we stayed a week in Clearwater Beach - but we didn't like it there (too noisy).

As a result we decided to book a similar stay in Kemps Cottage for next year - how better to express one's satisfaction?

Fabulous family time!

  • 5 of 5

Silver Sands was an extremely relaxing place to have our whole family get together. Each of us rented a different cottage, but gathered and had meals together in the larger Kemp's Cottage. The short walk to beach included the resident tortoises and rabbits. All the beach equipment you might want was provided including umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys for the kids, chairs, etc. The rooms were absolutely spotless when we arrived and the managers on duty were responsive and friendly. The charcoal grill was provided and we loved the outdoor spaces to sit and relax. Close proximity to a great Publix grocery store and anything else you might want. Beaches were clean and uncrowded. We will be back!

Found a new Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

The Silver Sands and Kemps Cottage are a lovely setting for a relaxing vacation. The cottage is very clean, comfortable and perfectly appointed. We liked that it was homey but not over decorated with plenty of surface area for your own belongings. All of the furnishings are high quality and in working order including the beach chairs and umbrellas. The outdoor areas are clean and comfortably furnished as well. The walk way to the beach is very nicely maintained and safe.Its a natural habitiat and there are a lot of turtles and gekos. The beach is beyond extraordinary- probably the nicest Ive been to. Betty, the property manager is very friendly, hospitable and responds promptly to your needs. Take a tip from the owners welcome book and just go to Publix for anything you need-they have the most complete offereing for whatever you need and there is a Dollar Tree in the same plaza. Having flown in the only thing we would have liked was a small cooler for the beach-how I found out no one carries beach coolers in the fall except Publix. I would also recommed some insect repellant for the beach and when youre outside in the morning and around dusk. We will be back!

What can I say? It is the Best!

  • 5 of 5

My sister found this place 14 years ago before the renovation. We fell in love with the rustic "60's" feel since that was when I was a child. The peace and quiet, the rabbits and gopher tortoises on the property, plus all the amenities which they still have and more after the renovation. We always stay in the Kemps cottage and are never disappointed. Sure, a second bathroom would be nice yet it is not a big deal. Kitchen is fully equipped since we always cook great dinners for all of us when we have our family reunion. Charcoal grills are there and a Publix grocery store is just 8.5 miles south on A1A if you don't bring food with you. Without the high rise hotels and other buildings that create to much light at night you can see the full milky way when there is no moon. Absolutley gorgeous!

This place is a gem, as others have described it, and I hope it remains that way. When I am there I completely relax, forget about all the business in the world, and enjoy great downtime.

Thank you Silver Sands for being where you are!

Very impressed!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the Kepm's cottage. Everything was so clean and tidy when we got there. Since three of my sisters are older than myself and my younger sister has had cancer, it was hard for them to enjoy the beach. We made the best of it, with daily road trips to sightsee.

There was only one thing that was not to our liking, not having a second bathroom. We surely would like to come back again sometime.

Best unknown beach spot on the east coast

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Kemp's Cottage this year and loved it. Bright, airy with plenty of room. Loved having a washer and dryer this time. I've been visiting CSS for at least 12 years. Love the quiet, the almost private beach. Will be back next summer!
