Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom suite, in a small beachfront resort with only 3 suites and 2 cottages

Monarch Suite 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. A large suite with kitchenette, HD TV, 50 mbps 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, ask our helpful onsite staff, call or email, we are there to make sure your time at The Silver Sands is second to none.

  • 4 of 5

The place is quiet. The monarch suite is nice. The beach is beautiful. We spent 3 Wonderful days. Historic district of st augustine which is à 20 minutes of driving has à lot to visit And plenty of boutiques And restaurants. We would have appréciate a better stove And a toaster. We recommandat the monarch suite if you stay on anastasia island.

Mostly quiet, very clean room friendly and helpful staff. Are pets allowed or not?

  • 5 of 5

The unit we rented was very clean and met our needs. When we needed something, Dana or Betty were quick to help. It was like having a cottage on a private beach. We did occasionally hear the sound of motorcycle traffic from the highway, but suspect that was the case at any location on A1A. We were a little confused about the presence of a dog in one of the units. It was well supervised, so no complaints about the owner, but we thought pets were not permitted. We wonder if there will be pets in the room prior to our next visit, if we choose to return. Or if an irresponsible dog owner will leave one barking all day in their room while they enjoy activities elsewhere, as we have experienced at other places. To avoid that possibility, we only stay at places that prohibit pets. No pets allowed should mean no pets allowed. Again, the dog we encountered, did not bother us and there were no signs of pet gander in our room. We are just concerned about how to safeguard against that in the future if there really isn't a no pets policy here.

Owner's Response: Thanks for visiting and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us! For a period of time, we did allow known pets in Pelican Cottage and some of those reservations were made some time ago. We honored that older reservation knowing personally the owner and the pet, so it is not a surprise there were no issues. No pets have stayed in most of the suites and cottages and that includes Monarch Suite. We have friends and family with pets and we have pets, so it was a difficult choice to no longer accept pets even in Pelican Cottage but unfortunately, we ran into too maintenance issues. We look forward to your return to the Silver sands! Sincerely, Elena Family Representative

The property is beach front and from the suites and cottages, there is a nature path thought the woods, over the ancient dune to the new beach walk over the last dune. Along the path you see wild flowers, wildlife, tortoises and palms.
