Hawksbill Suite is situated in 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. A large suite with kitchenette, washer/dryer, HD TV, 50 mbps wireless internet and more.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife, our two dogs, and I stayed in the Pelican Cottage. Except for a minor issue with the toilet tending to run, the cottage was very comfortable. There was a nice seating area just outside the cottage. The walkway to the beach was new or near new. Several gopher tortoises live on the property and wander around when the temperature is high enough. There were numerous sea turtle nests on the beach. The beach itself was good.

Paradise found...

  • 5 of 5

From the gorgeous decor in our suite to the breathtaking view of the ocean, The Silver Sands is a little piece of heaven right here on Earth. My only disappointment was not being able to stay longer! Days spent lounging in the sun followed by peaceful nights in a place where you have all the comforts of home, what's not to love? I will definitely return to this quaint paradise as soon as I possibly can.

Charming cottage surrounded by greenery

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Hawksbill Suite! The property is beautiful, lots of greenery, a little off the beaten path. so it's very quite and serene. It's only a short walk to a very private beach. The house had everything you would possibly need for your stay, from toothpaste to coffee to laundry detergent. They even had a lunch box to take snacks down to the beach! I was thoroughly impressed by how clean and well stocked it was! We will definitely be back.

This place is more than great!!!

Pelican Cottage (1 adult 3 teens)

First off, this place looks exactly like the photos and when we got there it felt bigger than we expected. The cottage is very well maintained and has pretty much everything you would need. I would have like there to be a desk somewhere and perhaps a sitting chair in the bedroom though...Other than that, the place was very spacious, which means alot when you have teenagers-we didn't feel like we were on top of each other.

Although this place seems like its kinda in the middle of nowhere, (we passed it trying to find it) but really it's just in a more residential part of town which is why you can go on the private beach(take a walkway right from the cottage and your at the beach in no time flat) at almost any time of the day and see no one else as far as your eye can see.

Historic St. Augustine is about 15min away, so you don't have to deal with the tourist noise or traffic on this property. If you need something that you forgot to bring, there is a more city like area, restaurants and such, on the way to the historic district area.

It was very quiet on the property itself as well as the homes surrounding it. Management isn't always on site and pretty much leaves you alone, but they are a phone call away at all times. When we did meet up, I found the woman to be very pleasant and concerned with our welfare. She also seemed interested in any suggestions.

All in all, I would recommend the Pelican cottage to any and everyone. I look forward to coming back and maybe checking out the other large unit that has a fireplace!

Quiet well maintained suites

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here twice and both times the suite was immaculate. The entire property is well maintained, clean, and the manager is friendly and helpful. It is quiet with only a few units on the property and just a few minutes walk across the dunes to a fairly secluded part of the beach.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

25th Anniversary week, we had a great time here. Hawksbill was well equipped and the layout was perfect! Had a washer & dryer so we didn't have laundry to do when we got home. The grounds were well maintained,, just a short walk to a almost private beach and the Atlantic is amazing. The scattered showers allowed us to binge watch a few Netflix shows we hadn't got a chance to watch too. We will come back again, thank you for having us!

Quiet, relaxing, low key vacation! Yay!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to the Silver Sands and found a lovely, simple, quiet little group of beach suites and cottages, surrounded by lush tropical greenery. The Hawksbill Suite was roomy and had everything we needed, right down to beach towels. We enjoyed our "nature walks" down to the beach and were very pleased to have beach chairs and umbrellas provided. (Boogie boards and sand toys were tempting also, but alas, we decided against using those...) Betty and Dana were more than helpful and made us feel very welcomed. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation. We are looking forward to another stay at The Silver Sands on Crescent Beach.
