"Our family arrived to be enchanted by this property. First, we will share what was so particularly special about the property itself. The front deck is spacious with an incredible view of the ocean, and a very well laid out and functional design for family, couple, or even a few guests. The ongoing ocean breeze is this location cannot be replicated-we have been and lived on numerous West and East coast beaches. The master bedroom has an unbelievable ocean view, with a great office nook that makes you feel like you are almost jutting out into the ocean itself. It also contains a smaller and more private balcony. The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated, with special decorative features throughout like a port hole window and stained glass windows. Appliances were all newer and in good working order. The 2nd bedroom was a big hit with the kids, with an on suite bathroom and generous bunks. The beach itself was spectacular. You simply cross an extremely small, barely utilized, sand frontage road, hop over a dune, to a beautiful, spacious, and almost semi private like beach. Even on 4th of July week, we were at least 200 yards from our nearest neighbor yet the beach maintained a lifeguard. We enjoyed the warm ocean waters, shell hunting, and even found an occasional shark tooth. The owner is extremely gracious. They even keep it stocked with beach towels, chairs, games, boogie boards etc. Our teen and 7 year old had so much fun each day at this beach, which is saying a lot for having a teen, they begged us not to go into town and leave the beach, property, and balcony. That being said, the town is conveniently located (just several minutes by car), is charming, has plenty of restaurant selections with great food, and some cute shops. Ft. Clinch is practically next door-it would be a 1/2 hour walk down the beach or a few minute car ride to see the impressive historic fort, 1/2 mile long pier, and great beaches. Boat rentals in the area were very reasonable and we had a great adventure going to an uninhabited island and shell hunting and exploring. TPC Sawgrass and St Augustine are an hour by car. My family and I love new adventures, so we have never considered going back to a VRBO property again only for this reason-but this one would be the exception endorsed by all. This is a great property not only for families, but would serve as a very cozy, special, and romantic get away. We are very pleased to highly endorse this property!"
