Overview

Lighthouse Park House Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront, deep water near inlet ,dock & lift,beautiful views,close to beach &

So much fun on Saltrun-a pristine, 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 waterfront privacy, security and exhilarating playful options my home has to offer in your own backyard.

Free bicycles and kayaks, lots of pool and inside games as well as fishing equipment available for you during your stay.

Year round fun in private saltwater swimming pool and spa, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, and the best fishing in St Augustine off the floating dock 🎣🚣🏻🏊🏻🚵🏼🐾⛵️

Bring your boat (or rent) of any size and enjoy deep, clean water near St Augustine inlet and all that beautiful, historic downtown St Augustine has to offer.

The home has beautiful heart pine floors, antiques, oil paintings and provides fine linens and toiletries. Close to the finest golfing, tennis, fishing, sailing, and so many other activities for the outdoor enthusiast. Wonderful museums, historical tours and endless enjoyment for the history lover.

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

Charming historical downtown area is a short drive or bike ride from the house. The house is incredible with a large chef's kitchen, 3 stories of decks overlooking the harbor and ocean, heated salt water swimming pool and spa.. We have a floating dock with deep water for any size boat and you can be the the ocean or intracoastal waterway in minutes.

Saltrun is open and peaceful for safe kayaking, paddle boarding, skiing & tubing. It is perfect for entertaining or for your own peaceful retreat. This is salt water...no alligators, only fish, dolphin and an occasional manatee.

Sunrise and sunsets are breathtaking! Nights on the dock are magical! 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 dock and deck lights come on automatically at night for enjoyable strolls where you see the beam of the St Augustine Lighthouse turning to your north as well as dolphin and varieties of birds and other wildlife coming to feed.

There is a fish cleaning station if you choose to keep and eat your catch of the day and a chemnia great for roasting marshmallows or staying cozy with your morning coffee or evening nightcap.

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 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!

Beautiful home, wonderful location on the Salt Run

  • 5 of 5

Sharon's home was large and lovely----a perfect spot for our 20 member family reunion. The house was clean, well-maintained and certainly fit the detailed description provided. The kitchen was spacious with plenty of room for many people to cook and prepare food. We spent much time outdoors in the pool or on the floating dock fishing, kayaking, canoeing, stand up paddle boarding and swimming. Access to ocean beaches was only a short drive away as the entrance to Anastasia State Park is just down the street from Sharon's house. She even left us a pass to enter the park. We enjoyed visiting old historical St. Augustine and some of the near-by restaurants. The location certainly offered many activities for our multi-generational group.

Sharon was a gracious, helpful host, meeting us at the house on arrival and providing information about the area. During the week she responded immediately to any questions that arose.

We would recommend this property to friends and relatives and would hope to return on another occasion.

Amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure what was nicer, the magnificent home or the fantastic home owner. From the initial booking until our departure, Sharon was incredible. The house was extremely clean and well equipped for our group. Location is ideal for a multitude of activities. We would go back in a heartbeat! One side note: If you bring your boat, study the salt run channel and inlet. It has plenty of deep water but can be tricky to navigate.

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.
