Private Homes house description

Charming Spanish style beach retreat for the beach lover! 'Ebb Tide' is one of three units in our Triplex ('High Tide' and 'Low Tide' are the other two)...an amazing location gives you a peaceful home yards from the white sand beaches and beautiful Atlantic Ocean without any streets to cross (East side of A1A beach blvd)! Rent all 3 units for a family gathering! Got pets? Bring them too - it's a pet friendly beach, and we have a fenced in yard for their roaming freedom! Dog door available on request! For those techies out there, the beach area isn't great for AT&T wireless - so we have a 'MicroCell' that allows your AT&T phone to get 4 bars while in the home! Yes, we try to think of everything for those that need to keep in touch! Walking distance to great restaurants (Mango Mango's, BeachComber, Taco Shack!), the Pier with a water park, bocce ball, volleyball, concerts and markets or take the beach trolley to the historic city and downtown attractions only 5 miles away.

For the adventurous, take surf lessons from the local surf shops, surf camp activities, or visit the Alligator Zoo to Zip Line and traverse the obstacle course while seeing the wildlife.

When you've done all you can do outside, come back and enjoy the wide selection of movies (or good old cable TV) with our new entertainment center. We have a fully equiped kitchen - and if you get there and think 'she should have ____' let me know and if it seems like a good idea, it will be delivered!

Time to sleep....well if you have to! We have a master with a King Size bed that can be separated into two twins. The second bedroom has a set of bunks - a double over double, and two single beds. The couch in the living room also has a pull-out bed and there is a futon too. Unique art from local galleries and Sage-Photographs graces the walls - the beach will inspire the artists in all of us - paint and easels can be supplied upon request!
We're proud to say we're getting 'repeat' guests which is the greatest compliment of all!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: 'Life's a Beach' defines me! Laurie is your proprietors here. I grew up as a Navy-brat living in the Azores Portugal and Brussels Belgium, always finding a seaside location as I traveled. I'm in technology sales and a weekend-realtor in FL and NC. My passion is the beach and ocean - I moved to the Outer Banks of NC in 2004, learned to love beach life and have explored beaches around the world creating adventures as I go! I made St.Augustine my permanent residence in 2012 and I want everyone to get a chance to explore beaches so began creating beach havens to allow friends, family and now you to enjoy our favorite beaches in the quirky comfort of our homes! When not on beach adventures, I kayak, boat, take my rescue-dogs Nemo and Ollie out for runs, and spend lots of time on the tennis courts. I'm also a licensed Realtor in NC and FL and can help you find a place of your own once you fall in love with my favorite beach areas!

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          In 2004 I began visiting St. Augustine and my parents bought a property in the historic district. I'd often stay with them or the St.Francis Inn B&B, and fell in love with the local beaches of St. Augustine.... the real estate bug caught me as usual and I found this perfect home in the summer of 2011. This is a Triplex - if 'Ebb Tide' is rented, we can see if the other two are available. Have a big group? Rent all three units for 6 total bedrooms to have togetherness yet privacy! I also have beach property in the Outer Banks of North Carolina - come visit there too!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The beach sunrises are absolutely stunning from our property - take your coffee (add some Baileys!), sleepily walk to the beach and enjoy the peace, sun colors and sounds of birds blended with waves. SWEET! Golf Fan? The TPC is just north of us....drive the scenic route up through Ponte Vedra and enjoy the courses and watch the pros! Tennis, anyone? Public and private courts are available - I can set you up with matches of any level at the two clubs I belong to. Prefer to be in the water? You've got it! Activities to be had everywhere, snorkeling, rent kayaks, jet skis or take a boat tour of the historic river. Love it so much here that you're looking for real estate of your own? I am an agent at St. Augustine Realty - I can help you find the home of your dreams if you don't have a Realtor already!
