Enjoy your best vacation ever. This beautiful , totally remodeled three bedroom, 2 bath home is in a quiet and safe Florida beach community on a double lot with a huge, privacy fenced backyard. You are just a short, easy walk or bike ride to the beach, the intra-coastal waterway public boat ramp and Windswept beach park.
Two of the three bedrooms have extremely comfortable King and Queen Beds (could be two masters for two couples) and one bedroom has two twin beds. There is also a sleeper sofa in the sunroom if you need it. The bedrooms are located on opposite ends of the house for your ultimate privacy. This house can easily sleep up to 8 people. Our home is fully equipped and very well decorated. A large kitchen allows you to easily prepare meals at home when you choose, although you are surrounded by many incredible restaurants and walking distance to The RedFrog Grill and Pub. Enjoy the 55“ flat screen LED HD satellite TV, wi-fi, and BluRay DVD player. There’s even a stocked desk if Mom or Dad need to do a “little” work while away or just write postcards.
Bring your boat or kayaks and launch from the public boat ramp into the intra-coastal waterway, just four blocks from you. Or….walk 7 minutes, bike 4 minutes or drive less than 1 minute across to the best and widest drive-on beach on the East coast. We are located just four blocks across the street from the Mantazazs drive-on ramp. One block away you’ll find Windswept Beach park with a beautiful new playground for the kiddies and an outdoor exercise gym. When you return back home, you, the kids and dog can enjoy sunning and playing in the huge, privacy fenced backyard until time to watch sunset over the intra-coastal waterway. (You can watch from the backyard or join the neighborhood with a comfortable walk to the boat ramp.) We’ve provided lots of little extras to make your vacation memorable and fun. Play volley ball, badminton or horseshoes in the huge backyard, take the boogie boards to the beach and go for a bike ride. And in the evenings you can share your memories of the day around the fire pit.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: George & Deborah live in the mountains of NC. George is a general contractor, musician, wood artist and bee keeper. Deborah owns a salon/spa, is a gardener, stained glass artist and assistant bee keep and aspiring cookbook author with a blog site called agardencook. We live a sustainable lifestyle in our 100+ year old farmhouse in the mountains of Cashiers, NC.
Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine: George and I love the beach. We were both raised on east coast beaches and although we love living in the mountains of NC, we missed the coast. So we began looking for a home in a beach town that was reminiscent of the beaches we grew up on. We wanted all the conveniences of a city, but to be in a small community that was not overbuilt. We love wide beaches. George still surfs, so he wanted a beach where he could surf. He is also an active musician and plays frequently in St. Augustine. I wanted the laid back atmosphere of a beach community and to be able to walk the beach everyday. St. Augustine was a perfect match for us. We have lots of music and culture, beautiful wide beaches in a quiet community that reminds us of the beaches we grew up on.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We love the fact that we can just walk or bike the short distance to the beach. The beach is one of the widest on the east coast and we are always awed by it. It's a casual beach which we find very relaxing. Pets are allowed on a leash and we enjoy watching people and their pets. The neighborhood is very quiet and friendly. We are so close to Dtwn St. Augustine , the oldest city in the U.S. It takes minutes to drive Dtwn and enjoy all the siteseeing, shops, architecture, music and great dining. We are always passing ghost tours and one of these days I'm going to take one.
