Summer Haven house description

Experience the rich history and amazing beauty of summer Haven, the barrier island home of our luxurious Afternoon Delight house. You'll enjoy all the modern amenities and lush comfort in the midst of spectacular views and unspoiled wildlife habitats!

Home to just a few properties now, Summer Haven is one of the oldest and most famous beach communities in eastern florida. It is a haven for nesting turtles, and a fantastic place to watch the sunrise. And at Afternoon Delight, you're just half a block from the beach!

Your first glimpse of Afternoon Delight reassures you that this is going to be a splendidly relaxing, fun vacation. The house is painted a sunny yellow, with a bright green front door, plenty of potted plants, and a nice front yard (with a driveway and big garage to keep your car out of the hot sun!). It feels like coming home, and we want you to make yourselves right at home from the moment you arrive.

You'll find 2 living spaces at Afternoon Delight: the living room, washed in soft warm tones and full of comfy sofas and chairs, and the family room, just as cozy but also sporting a big HDTV and a handsome fireplace. So if the grown ups want to chat while the kids watch a movie, no problem! And if you have a reader in the group who needs someplace quiet to curl up with the latest novel, the living room is just perfect, with sunlight spilling over the couch.

There are also 2 places to eat at Afternoon Delight, though you may find yourself taking a picnic to the beach or dining on the second-storey balcony more often than not. Our breakfast nook is a sun-washed room with a round table that may call out to the game players among you. (It's also a great place to set up the laptop; you have free wireless Internet at Afternoon Delight.) The formal dining room is a larger space but also cozy and full of windows. You'll just have to try them both!

Whether you're a gourmet cook or a takeout specialist, you'll love the kitchen at Afternoon Delight. The lovely polished cabinetry, granite countertops, and island sink don't really make the food taste better, but you sure feel like a professional as you whisk around in this designer paradise! Of course you'll find all the cookware, utensils, and dishes you need, along with those time-saving gadgets (microwave, blender, coffee maker) that get you out the door and onto the beach a little faster.

As luxurious and enjoyable as the living and dining spaces are at Afternoon Delight, it's the sleeping area that may really win your heart. All 3 of our bedrooms open onto the second-storey balcony, and each has its own bathroom. Add a garden tub to the mix and you have the ideal situation for long lovely evenings and late mornings -- the perfect vacation!

The master bedroom contains a queen-size bed, large TV, and en suite bathroom (home of the garden tub, which sports a private view of the treetops!). There is a walk-in shower as well. Pamper yourself to your heart's content in this suite!

The second bedroom also contains a queen-size bed and en suite bathroom, equipped with both a bathtub and shower. And the third bedroom, also with a queen bed, features a large TV and a convenient half-bath. All towels, linens, pillows, and blankets are waiting for you here, and we've got a washer and dryer ready as well.

And now the best part of Afternoon Delight: the location! You're less than 1 minute's walk from the beach here, and can hear the lulling sound of the surf from our balcony!

Note: Due to Summer Haven beach erosion concerns created by Tropical Storm Faye, there is now an area of large boulders blocking the beach access points closest to the property. This is a matter of much press (and legal battles) as a private home owner did to protect his beach home which in turn blocked the public access point. Although you can walk in between these boulders to access the beach like the locals that live near by, the nearest easy beach access is approximately 1 mile north at Fort Mantanzas National Park. It has (free) parking.

                  About: My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now I am managing other people's properties in St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 500+ vacation rentals. We booked over 10,000 rentals and received over 3,000 guest reviews in 2011. You can find some of these by going to search engines and typing in Steve Milo or 'Vacation Rental Pros' . Thank you!

                  Why Summer Haven:
                  And the best part of it all is the location. You're within a short car ride of historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in America filled with pedestrian walkways with shops, cafes and first class restaurants. We are also close to Daytona Beach and the Daytona speedway and museum. We are also only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Orlando and Disney World/Universal/Sea World as well as 1 1/2 hour to the Kennedy Space Center. Our rental is also a short car ride to Ponte Vedra Beach and PGA golf Course and TPC as well as Jacksonville with the brand new St John's Town Center (with a Costco), Avenue Mall and River Front Arcade. There is also a minor league baseball team and a professional football team and stadium.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The beach is wide and unspoiled here by large crowds. Kids will spend hours exploring, and their parents and grandparents will love discovering new areas to relax and reconnect If you're ready for uncrowded beaches, balmy weather, clear skies, and Florida's natural wildlife, come visit us today!
