  • We loved this house so much that we've already booked it for next year!!!

    "Wow! This was the perfect vacation destination for my family. It's a 3 minute walk to the beach! The house is very large with a fantastic open floor plan and gorgeous views of the ocean. It was ideal for my family. The house has a wonderful open flow...the great room is open to the kitchen and dining area making it a great place to hang out for meals and boardgames. There are multiple decks and we especially loved the one off family room for eating, entertaining and enjoying the gorgeous ocean view. The master bedroom/bath are huge and the additional bedrooms are all nicely sized. The lower level bonus room allowed me to make my conference calls and get some work done. Spacious, clean as a whistle and located in a prime location, this home is far a away the nicest place we've rented in St. Augustine!"

  • Clean, Cozy, and Close to the Beach!

    "My wife and I recently honeymooned in St. Augustine and used Frank and Donna's house as our base of operations. We could not have asked for a better place. The house is located across the street from a Best Western hotel, so it was nice that a 2.5-3* hotel was there instead of a roadside motel. Upon arrival, the house was very clean with fresh sheets on the beds and there were no smells or stains anywhere. The bathrooms and kitchen were also very clean. The house is 1 block from the beach, which is an easy walk (You do have to cross the A1A but people are very nice and will stop to let you cross), and they provide beach chairs, umbrella, simple beach games, boogie boards, skim board, beach bruiser bikes, and a beach buggy to cart it all there. The only complaint or suggestion I have would be to reinvest in a new Beach umbrella, as the current one has definitely reached the end of its life. This is a minor gripe though and doesn't effect the rating. The outside shower was hot water and was convenient for getting most of the sand off before using the internal showers. Historic Downtown St. Augustine is an easy 5 mile drive away, and you drive past the Lighthouse on the way there. We had a blast! There are also a multitude of restaurants within a short walk or bike ride of the house, including Mango Mangos, just down the A1A a few streets. The house was a good size for 2 people, and would sleep 5 very comfortably with a queen bed in the master, 2 twins in the guest and 2 couches(one pullout i think). The decorations were perfect for a beach themed house. AC blew cold, washer and dryer worked great, no issues with the dishwashers, drains, toilets or bathtubs. All in all, a fantastic experience for us and we would absolutely recommend the house to potential travelers. We received our security deposit back within 2 days. I did buy an umbrella anchor and left it there for the next people to use, as the one provided didn't work that great, and we made sure to follow the checkout procedures and swept up the house to leave it as clean as when we arrived. Thanks Frank and Donna for allowing us to use your home and we will absolutely keep you in mind if we return to St. Augustine!"

  • Perfect in every way!

    "The cottage is literally ocean front! Glass door knobs, original woodwork, all updated technology; the best of both worlds. This house is the perfect escape from a hectic life. We used the sun porch daily, reading at sunrise and again at sunset. The beach is steps away but you still have privacy. Dealing with Mary and Cathy was a real pleasure. Can't wait to return."

  • 50th birthday celebration

    "We spent four days in this beautiful beach house to celebrate some 50th birthdays. We rented both sides of the duplex for four couples. It was perfect. The house is impeccably kept, and very pretty. We loved hanging out on the decks and walking over the dune to the beach. Beach chairs provided! The location was great-we could walk to bars and restaurants, and it was a quick drive to Publix. We'd go back in a heartbeat!"
