  • Wonderful New Years Vacation

    "This was our 2nd visit to Summer Haven Turtle Pen. I neglected to write a review the 1st time in March and promised I would make up for the fault. This is a great place for a couple and good dogs, or just a couple who likes a quiet beach. We brought our 3 dogs and spent a lot of time walking the beaches. It's a quick ride(or walk) over the Matanzas Inlet to the National Park beach, or just a few minutes down the road to Washington Oaks State Park and all of the trails. Of course, we walked over to Old A1A onto the beach right here and found plenty of shells and birds to chase (not me, the dogs). The house is quiet and private behind a gate and the deck wraps around 2 sides of the house, so we could get winter sun without the breeze. Inside it is very comfortable and the owners took extra effort to make sure we were comfortable. They loaned us their bikes do we didn't have to bring our own and were flexible about arrival/departure times as the schedule allowed it. Great restaurants, groceries, and tourist "stuff" are all with 30 minute drives or less yet you are away from the crowds with views of the ocean and ICW. We will be back, maybe without dogs, or maybe with more!"

  • LOVED IT! Location is perfect!

    "Location: Perfect. We know St Augustine and this is the best location to stay we think. As advertised, you have private beach access without crossing any roads. There are a few restaurants (but not too many) and shops within walking distance--feels like a small beach town. Big grocery store and other stuff about 2 miles away. Great beach! Lots of waves. Our favorite. Also, you are 0.8 miles south of the solitude of Anastastia State Park when you walk on the beach. No cars on the beach. Condo: Very well maintained, clean and as exactly as pictured and described! Nice ocean view from (part of) the HUGE balcony with constant breeze and no bugs. Pool right off the beach. Everything nicely landscaped. The condo is cute. Kitchen has everything and everything worked just great. Place has tons of towels, pillows, & blankets. 3 flat screen TV's and 2 dvd players. Wifi was excellent. Big washer and dryer. We had 2 adults and 3 teenage kids and had plenty of room. You do have walk up 3 flights of stairs, but the view on the 3rd floor is the best. 1st floor has no water view at all. The owner and the rental company were GREAT! Very efficient and responsive. No problems. ABSOLUTE WILL BE STAYING HERE AGAIN."
