Lighthouse Park House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful home-perfect for large or multiple families to celebrate time together

Perfect waterfront home for groups, family celebrations or vacations! The house is beautifully appointed with heart pine floors, elegant antiques, fine paintings, even a harpsichord. The living areas are spacious with wonderful flow and openings to the covered lanai, heated saltwater pool with spa and multiple decks overlooking Salt Run and the Atlantic Ocean. Historical downtown St Augustine is just a few minutes away.

Salt Run is a protected harbor just beyond the dune to the Atlantic Ocean. You can be at the beach in minutes, but you won't want to leave the many exhilarating waterfront options, privacy and security my home has to offer in your own backyard. Excellent restaurants are just around the corner or enjoy grilling on the back lanai.

Free bicycles and kayaks, pool, spa and games as well as fishing equipment available for you during your stay. I provide a pass to Anastasia State Park next door for beautiful beach access

(Reviews on this site cannot be deleted or altered, so you will get an honest idea of the experience)

Salt Run is protected and peaceful for safe kayaking, paddle boarding, skiing & tubing and any kind of boating. It is perfect for entertaining or for your own peaceful retreat. This is salt alligators, only fish, turtles, dolphin and occasional manatee.

Sunrise and sunsets are breathtaking! Nights are magical with the only moon, stars and the St Augustine Lighthouse lighting the sky. The house and belongings are very important to me. (This is a very private, elegant home to enjoy, and not for loud, or wild parties.)

The property is professionally treated against mosquitos so you can maximize enjoyable time outside even more. Lighting and stereo speakers are located at the dock as well as porches, pool and decks so you can have your choice of music any time of the day or night.

My home offers a perfect place for a intimate private getaway or for multiple families or friends, giving everyone plenty of space for socializing with the advantage of a floor plan that allows ample privacy. It is a home and location everyone will love❤️

About Sharon Cahoon

I love nature and the privacy and peace my home provides. I also love bring joy to others and doing all I can to show each person how important they are to me.There is nothing more important to me than safety and well being of your family members as well as pets and keeping the house it perfect condition. On Saltrun, the sounds of the surf and sites of nature remind you of the life's simple pleasures. The home is designed in a way that flows well, accommodates groups of all types and sizes while giving everyone plenty of space and privacy. It has very high end furnishings, but not pretentious. I feel proud of call this my home and love sharing it with people who have the same respect.

Sharon Cahoon purchased this house in 2006

Why Sharon Cahoon chose St. Augustine

My home on Salt Run is uniquely private & peaceful with beautiful wildlife (Salt water so no alligators...only fish, dolphin and occasional manatees) yet close to all the St Augustine parks, beaches and attractions. St Augustine's charming, historical downtown area is a short drive or bike ride from the house.I love the fact that it is not a gated community, but a wonderful, eclectic mixture of wonderful neighbors. Once you drive through the gates, of the home, however, you are in your own wonderful world. The property is perfect for family gatherings, multiple family and small events. I ask you do not construct stages or set up event tents unless we have discussed it and approved. I have an event liaison that will help you and make sure things run smoothly. Please let me know your intentions for the property so we are all on board to make sure you have the best time possible.

What makes this house unique

Drive through the gates into a private paradise for friends and family to enjoy. Wonderful entertaining! Dolphin feeding in Salt Run, birds of all varieties (I love the pink spoonbills and diving pelicans) coming over from the Alligator Farm for fresh fish. Anastasia State Park, the lighthouse, beach, and almost anything you can imagine is just a short bike ride away. I have enjoyed the music of James Taylor and The Beach Boys from the 3rd floor deck as they played at the amphitheater in the park near my home. Year round, you can enjoy the fireplace, chimneas, the Jacuzzi and heated pool .

Amazing location and home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for my parent's 60th Wedding Anniversary. I have to say this was one of the best experiences I have ever had with a rental property! Sharon, the owner has literally thought of everything to make your stay amazing. She even brought us some live shrimp to try our hand at fishing from the beautiful dock. Everything that you could want or need is at the house. The home is very spacious and beautiful and the property that it sits on is just beautiful. You are right near Anastasia State Park entrance which is such a beautiful beach! We will definitely stay here again. There are also bikes and kayaks that are available for your use. Sharon goes above and beyond to make sure that you have everything that you need to make your stay great! Thank you for taking such good care of my family while we stayed at your amazing home!

The home was beautiful and had everything we needed. Sharon the owner met our every need.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived Sharon was there to greet us. She was very kind and attentive. The home had everything we needed for the 14 people that stayed. Sharon allowed us to use the pool toys and the kayaks she has and anything else she had available on the property. Sharon was so awesome when one of the others there cut themselves and we couldn't find band aids, Sharon drove over and brought some to us. We had over 50 people come through the house while we stayed and everyone was impressed. Some even asked how we found the house to rent and plan on staying there in the future. The pictures of the home don't do it justice, it is more beautiful than one could imagine. I highly recommend staying here if you visit St. Augustine. It is 5 minutes from all St. Augustine's historic attractions. Thank you again Sharon for all of your hospitality, attentiveness and kindness.

Amazing Family Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Sharon's exquisite Salt Run home while celebrating our son's wedding in St. Augustine. Our extended family, friends, and the wedding party were able to relax, fish, and socialize in this beautiful waterfront home. The gourmet kitchen was the site of many early morning pre-fishing and pre-golfing breakfasts. We brought our boat along and the dock was well equipped for boating and dock fishing. The pool and covered deck with it's music and grills were perfect for our laid back celebrating. The proximity to downtown made traveling between venues an easy trip. The home was stocked with fresh towels, pool toys, and even bicycles. Sharon was a gracious host and provided all the amenities and local information to make our stay remarkable and one that our family will never forget!

Beautiful home, great location, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Of all the vacation homes I've rented this is by far the best. Adjacent to Anastasia St. Park, St. Augustine lighthouse, Gator farm and historic St. Augustine. This spacious home provided plenty of room for 4 families with adult children and grandchildren. All enjoyed the pool, fishing, bikes, kayaking and large covered patio! Sharon is a gracious host and provides all that's needed for vacation at the beach.

So Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home this is! Our 5 adult kids flew in from all over the country to celebrate my husband's 78th birthday. The home is spacious and comfortable, affording all plenty of private areas when needed. The kitchen is huge with a large table that allowed us many game nights! The dock was so much fun for fishing n provided kayaks. Anastasia State park was literally around the corner with it's wide, expansive, beautiful beach. Location to all was perfect! Sharon the owner was such a pleasure, always ready to accommodate us and answer any questions we had.

Go to mellow mushroom for pizza and the Conch house for great food!

Anastasia State Park
Car: recommended

Every water sport you can think of is ready for you in your backyard. Anastasia State Park and all the historical attractions are an easy bike ride or short car ride away. The St Augustine Amphitheater offers excellent entertainment as well as St Augustine Farmer's Market every Saturday at the Amphitheater from 8:30AM-12:30PM and at the Pier Wednesday morning. It is tempting to stay at the property with so many activities right your own backyard.
