St. Augustine house description

Can't get closer to the ocean. Direct oceanfront home with 3 private floors, all with private entrances. Each floor has a kitchen and full size bathroom. House has an extra large outside Deck on beach with built in seating. Private dock & private beach entrance. House is located in St. Augustine on the small island of Summer Haven. Located one mile north of Marineland. We are on a rare (for St. Augustine) no driving part of the beach so no worries about passing cars. Our beach is almost not accessible for public access, without climbing down some steep rocks .25 mile from this property. We are directly on Atlantic Ocean but you can also see the Matanzas River and the Inner Coastal waterway. From the top floor you can see the historical Fort Matanzas. Since we sit on this access the wildlife is amazing. Sea Turtles, Dolphins and Manatees go back and forth daily in front of this property in and out of salt and fresh water. Our area of the Inner Coastal sits on 25 miles of undeveloped state owned natural habitat. So the water is one of the most unpolluted water areas in the state of Florida which brings fisherman and birders from all over to this sanctuary areas. Our area is very private with no crime and the feeling of safety for those that want to let their kids go free on the beach without worry. No worries about a long walk from your bedroom to the beach you pretty much are on the beach all the time without touching the sand. Property next to ours is not developed so the property and house has no obstructed views of ocean from any rooms. If you cycle we are a few miles from some of the best mountain biking and miles and miles of paved trails, most totally shaded. This property is called an artist Haven, and The Center of the Universe. A very very rare Florida Beach spot. A Oprah book has been written here and countless pieces of art and song writing has happened on this treasured tree house property. Come relax and enjoy our private beach paradise.
