Property description

Kemp's cottage is situated in a quiet, oceanfront retreat on nearly 2 acres of natural, dune property with the pristine beaches of Anastasia Island as the front yard. It is located just south of historic St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. Originally, this was the owners house and they built additional units starting at the back corner of the house which have now been configured into suites. Kemp's Cottage was entirely renovated in 2013 with a new kitchen, washer/dryer, HD TV, 50 mbps wireless internet and more. Note, the fireplace is not operational. Enjoy beautiful white sand beaches with swimming, surfing, fishing, barbecue in a private, natural setting. We also supply beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, fishing gear, small cooler, carts to tote down the beach path and much more.

With only 2 cottages and 3 suites on the entire oceanfront property, it feels like your own, private tropical escape. Pelican Cottage, Kemp's Cottage, Hawksbill Suite, Monarch Suite and Ridley Suite are all listed on VRBO and available for rental starting in June 2013. Choose to view all listings below for more information. The extensive renovations included replacing most of the systems, insulation and soundproofing, new windows, doors, bathrooms and kitchens, providing luxurious accommodations to the perfect St. Augustine, beachfront vacation.

The newly landscaped property includes many tall palms, flowering tropical plants and places to relax. When you follow the path to the beach you'll come across many native plants and will get to know the original residents of the land including the gopher tortoise, the wildlife that their burrows support, the monarch butterflies as they migrate, and many species of birds. Lounge in the courtyard, cool off in the pristine waters of Crescent Beach, surf at one of the best surfing beaches in Florida, visit one of the many great restaurants, or cook in your well-equipped kitchen.

If you need something, ask our helpful onsite staff, call or email, we are there to make sure your time at The Silver Sands is second to none.
