St. Augustine house description

Beach Haven is located on Anastasia Island, 10 minutes south of downtown St Augustine. It is perfect for a quiet beach get away or an active vacation! The in-ground heated pool provides privacy and safety for children and adults alike.

The neighborhood is quiet with a mixture of vacationers and year-round residents on a dead end street. The beach is a two-minute walk to our beautiful new wooden walkway that gives you breathtaking vistas of the dunes, beach and ocean, and peeks at the turtles, rabbits and other local four legged residents!

We welcome children and pets, but do charge a small pet fee. You will be minutes away from great restaurants, movie theatres, shopping, all types of water craft rentals, golfing, museums, art galleries and historic sites along the inter-coastal waterway and in downtown St Augustine.

Our summer rentals are week to week, but please email me with special requests!

Our vacationers return year after year, and I hope you will join them!

            Immediately following my review comments, I was contacted by the owner. She was very upset to hear about the issues we had. Evidently the previous renters had requested the back yard not be mowed (so as not to disturb them) and her pool maintenance person assured her that the pool had been cleaned. Although the pool was an issue, I was very impressed with the speed that she followed up with as well as her concern about getting to the bottom of things. In light of this, I would rent from her again!

            Owner response: Thank you Kim! I am VERY VERY concerned about the issues that you brought up and am actively working with the management company to fix the problems. We are working together to make every vacation perfect, but sometimes we hit a bump in the road. Our apologies for any discomfort you experienced, and we hope to have you back at Beach Haven in the future.

            My family & I spent last week at Beach Haven. For the most part, we really enjoyed it. We are from the area & spend at least a week in St Aug Beach every summer. The house had everything we needed, was in a nice, quiet neighborhood, walk to beach was easy & pleasant. A/C worked great, we were always comfortable, both the King & Queen beds were super comfortable! My main complaints are re: mgmt company I guess. We got there Saturday & couldn't connect to the wifi; I called mgmt either that day or the next, noting that it was a long, holiday weekend, but no one EVER called us back. About mid-week, we realized the yard hadn't been mowed, nor had the pool been cleaned. Rather than call the mgmt company, I emailed the owners directly. Never heard back, pool was never cleaned, yard wasn't mowed. Pool maintenance was the biggest issue as our routine is beach in the am, lunch & cocktails & pool in afternoon :) When in St Aug Beach, be sure to go to Mango Mangos, Rita's, and Peterbrooke Chocolatier :)

            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, pet owners, girls getaway, families with teenagers, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing.

            Owner response: I am so glad to hear that you loved the house and the area! We just invested in new mattresses, glad you noticed! Unfortunately, our management company dropped the ball and did not see that the yard was not mowed. The pool was cleaned, but perhaps not to your standards, and I understand. the managment company and I both apologize for the oversight of the yard, and are constantly working to improve our services to our guests. The internet may have been down in the neighborhood, there is no need for a code to get on. Comcast is a bit spotty at time with coverage.

            Having rented the house online, we weren't sure what to expect. The house was great - clean, well laid out for our needs, very well stocked with kitchen equipment and linens. The upstairs/downstairs layout was perfect as our 3 dogs were able to stay downstairs on tile in the living room. They even had baby gates to use to keep them off the stairs. The access for the dogs to go to the back yard was perfect. Our son and his friends took over the upstairs - there was more than enough room for everyone. The pool was fantastic - we rarely went to the beach at all. The dogs enjoyed the backyard - but one word of caution - be careful of the plants as some of them (oleander) are toxic to animals if ingested. The landscaped areas around the yard were a little neglected - needed to be remulched, some dead plants/weeds, but enough grass for dogs, and lots of hiding places for lizards for them to hunt. Watch out for the thorns on the century plants by the driveway. They are lethal. The only small issue was that the pool light did not work, nor was there an outdoor light downstairs around the pool deck, so it was very dark at night except for the ambient light from the upper deck. Very quiet neighborhood, empty lot on one side and no one home on the other side. Beach access was convenient, and not really accessible by the public, so very empty beach area. All shopping and dining was very close. We live nearby so didn't really do any touristy stuff in St Augustine, as we have already done/seen it. Would definitely stay there again.

            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, pet owners, girls getaway, families with teenagers, romantic getaway, sightseeing.

            Owner response: Our vacationers always love the house, the pool, the proximity to the beach. That is what vacation is all about! As can be imagined, landscaping at the beach is always a challenge, and we appreciate the heads up that we need to pay more attention to the yard! Thank you for the review!

            We had an amazing family vacation at this house. It's a great floor plan and very accommodating. The pictures don't do it justice! Having the private pool was a bonus. The neighborhood and easy walk to the beach was a blessing for us and our puppies. The beach, private pool, open floor plan, great location to wonderful restaurants and good communication with the owners made this vacation a hit. We will definitely come back!

            My Family of four(two teens) & our yorkie, stayed in Beach Haven and loved it! From the moment I contacted the owner Mar, Who was very helpful and honest in her description of her lovely home. I spoke to Mar several times before we made a decision. Thank you Mar for being kind and patient with all of the questions I had to help finalize our decision. The home is better than pictured. Very clean and nicely decorated & equipped with everything anyone would need for a stay at the beach (except a grill) but it turned out to not be a problem. My teens loved the downstairs area, they made it their domain. They hooked up their Xbox on the tv and enjoyed games and movies in the evening. The beach was awesome, an easy walk to the beach walkover. The beach even though its a on a drive on section, it Was Not crowded as there are no condo complexes nearby. The neighborhood was Very quiet on a no outlet street, made it very nice, private and peaceful. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in St Augustine Fl. Great home, Great owner = a Great Vacation! Thanks Again Mar Ursula

            This was an outstanding rental property. My wife and I (and pet) stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and had a fabulous time. The pictures on the web site don't do justice to how nice of a home this is. A beautiful, quiet, fairly unoccupied beach is a 5-minute walk from the house, and the pool at the house is also very nice if you don't want to make the walk to the beach. We hope to stay there again someday and would definitely recommend it to others.

            What a beautiful home!!! Got home late last night but wanted to be sure to write a review for this lovely home! There were five of us (2 last minute cancellations!) who had such a nice time in St. Augustine for a friend's sons wedding...the place was clean, beautiful and had all the amenities. The pool was sooo awesome - 82 degrees and a nice size - plenty of deck space and lounge chairs and regular chairs. The sunrise view from the deck was great - Also, Beach Properties and Management - great company - Cindy checked us in and was a great help - all in all a wonderful experience and if I ever plan on coming back to St. Augustine, this is where I want to stay!!! All of us just LOVED our "home away from home".... - from the Girls from Pittsburgh!!! ps - also, thanks to the owner, Mar, for the great suggestions for places to eat and for always answering any of my many questions in a timely fashion and with kindness!!! Thanks for loaning us your beautiful home!!!

            Our stay at the Beach Haven was fabulous. The house was very clean and spacious. Everything was provided to make our stay comfortable and relaxing, including things for the pool and beach. Being in a residencial area made walking to the beach quick and easy. Crescent Beach was clean and quiet, just a beautiful place to be. Thanks again, this is the first time I would consider going to the same place twice.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2004

          About the owner: Jim and I wanted a beach home close to our friends and relatives in St Augustine, FL. We reside in Santa Barbara, CA and have always loved visiting the east coast, and Anastasia Island and Crescent Beach. Jim is an Electrical Contractor and I am a jewelry designer.

          Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
          This neighborhood is so beautiful, many of the homes have year-round residents and we have made wonderful new friends. The ocean views are gorgeous, the beach is clean and wide and the water clean and clear. The pool is always the perfect temperature....There are fabulous restaurants within walking and/or biking distance and plenty of activities. Swimming, beach, biking, walking, surfing, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, shopping, dining....

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Because the home has two living rooms, it's perfect for families. The kids can enjoy the huge couches downstairs and blast their videos and TV, and the adults can enjoy the deck, ocean views and Master Suite upstairs. The kitchen is so convenient with a long bar between the work area and the dining area, all open to the ocean vistas. The heated pool allows the kids to be entertained while the babies are napping and the moms can enjoy the shade or the sun too!
