Great home for a larger party
Great home for a larger party
Our family stayed here for a week and had a great time. We brought our little poodle and he had a great time, too. :) Walked to the beach; had to cross A1A but it isn't bad at all in Jan. Daughter enjoyed the pool, and the parents enjoyed the hot tub. There are kayaks but we didn't use them after all; I did use their beach chairs at the beach, and noodles in the pool. The house is well stocked and the owner is easy to work with. Recommend.

Owner response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad you had a nice time in St.Augustine and enjoyed your vacation home. I enjoyed meeting you and would love to have to stay in my home again. I supply many items for my guests and always updating and buying more items. The beach is such a short walk it is easy to carry the light weight chairs to the beach. I supply beach toys, floats,noodles, beach umbrella, and beach towels. Happy to hear you got to enjoy the pool and hot tub in January! The weather here is beautiful and the perfect place to get out of the snow and the cold. Glad you had a great week!

My family and I stayed at this house July 17-24, 2010. This house has EVERYTHING you could imagine-from beach towels to spices in the kitchen, from floats galore for the pool and beach to bikes and a GIANT cart to haul your stuff in to the beach! We had several people ask us on the beach where we got our Gorilla Cart(the actual name of it). It came in VERY handy! Thank you, Donna for having thought of every little detail. The pool was small but perfect for our family, and we spent LOTS of time in it. Also, the walk to the beach is indeed very short, only took us about 3 minutes to get there. This house is perfectly laid out for one or two families, or 3 couples. The master is on one side of the house and the other two bedrooms are on the other side of the kitchen. And speaking of beds, the queen and king beds sleep great! The mattresses and sheets/blankets make you feel like you are staying in a luxurious hotel! Lastly, I will mention that this house is only about 10 minutes from downtown St. Augustine. We ate at a restaurant the last night called Columbia-Mexican and Cuban food-it was amazing! We also took our kids to the Alligator Farm which was a blast for the whole family! You will not regreat booking this house!
