  • Wonderful family vacation in Palm Coast

    "Despite rainy cool weather, we enjoyed a great week together -- 7 adults and 5 grandchildren ages 5 thru 4 months. The tvs, d/w, washer/dryer were more complicated than what we have at home but we could have called for help at any time. In fact we did call for help when the internet went down and the service was prompt. The house was even more spacious than shown on line. The heated pool and spa were a real hit with all ages."

  • 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!"

  • Ocean Delight was a Delight

    "House was beautiful and in a great location away from busy St. Augustine but not too far. Management was very helpful with the grill not working and trash collection. Master bath had a toilet that ran continuously and needs work. Overall, was almost perfect and will return. Beaching was easy and very private. Caught many fish and dining out was fabulous"

  • JUST WHEN YOU THINK IT CAN'T GET BETTER....

    "Our second visit to this fabulous penthouse was the predictable spotless, squeaky clean, modern, luxurious home, equipped with every imaginable thing you would ever want in every room. The 4th floor unobstructed view from the private 28' balcony gave us a breathtaking infinity view of the ocean. The living room and master bedroom's ceiling to floor glass walls/doors offers a panoramic 24/7 view of the beach and ocean. The kitchen is a chef's dream and to our surprise, this year included brand new all stainless steel appliances. We loved the fridge ice/water dispenser and it tasted better than the best bottled water. If you like all this plus plush, thick, sparkle-white bath towels, specialty soaps, 3 flat screen TV's, a huge walk-in glass shower (plus another bath) and 2 king size bedrooms with huge closets, this is the place for you!! And, you will really appreciate the warmth and friendliness of the owners who aim to please! This is definitely a 5 star plus!"

Florida North East Travel Tips

Northeast Florida Vacation Rentals for Your Next Trip

Northeast Florida has some of the oldest settlements in the United States. Discovered by Juan Ponce de Leon in 1513, both the Spanish and French established settlements in northeast Florida. With the advent of the Florida East Coast Railroad by William Henry Flagler in the late 19th century, the advantages of the area as a winter resort became more apparent. Nicknamed the “Sunshine State,” it is a popular vacation destination for families, couples, snowbirds escaping the northern states for the winter, and spring breaker travelers. Nowadays, St. Augustine, Amelia Island, Jacksonville and Daytona Beach are some of the most popular vacation destinations in the U.S.

Choose Your own Northeast Florida Vacation Rentals

The coastline of northeast Florida is lined with oceanfront condos and apartments offering fantastic vacation rentals right on the beach. Condos often have their own private balcony, a sun terrace and shared swimming pool overlooking the beach. The convenience of having these amenities and sun loungers just steps from your lodging makes good sense. Within your own vacation rental unit, the well-equipped kitchen can be stocked with cold drinks and snacks, helping to save you money during the vacation. Older children can come and go to the beach and pool as they please and everyone has their own bedroom space. A vacation rental usually works out to be much cheaper than a hotel, especially for a family. Couples can opt for a smaller unit or may share the space (and cost!) with friends. Those requiring a special diet will find the convenience of a vacation rental home a great advantage. Best of all, condo rentals are comfortably furnished to a high standard with every convenience in the kitchen from a washer/dryer unit to a dishwasher.

Things to do Near Northeast Florida Condos

Northeast Florida has plenty of things to see and do including the usual beach pursuits of surfing, metal detecting, sunbathing and fishing. Jet skis, windsurfing and bird-watching are popular pursuits. Visitors can also take a boat trip along the quieter Intracoastal Waterway. The area has plenty of museums, including the Wax Museum and Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in St. Augustine, lighthouses, national parks, golf courses and excellent shopping malls. Cycling and walking along the firm sands and boardwalks are popular ways to see the area. Art-lovers will enjoy a visit to the Cummer Museum of Art which has a fine collection of Japanese prints and 19th-century artwork in this beautiful mansion. There are also several botanical gardens in the area.

Getting to Northeast Florida Resorts

Many people drive to Northeast Florida. Those choosing to fly will find Jacksonville International Airport the nearest major airport to this area. It is just 16 miles from Amelia City lodging, 22 miles from the Jacksonville beach rentals and within easy driving distance of St. Augustine and Daytona Beach.

Neighborhoods to Visit From Northeast Florida Resorts

Amelia Island has some of the best beaches and sand dunes in Florida. It has the Fort Clinch State Park with a historic Civil War fort and plenty of shops and restaurants. Jacksonville has miles of beautiful sandy beaches along the barrier island and Atlantic Beach is a favorite with surfers. A little further down the coast from Jacksonville is St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, founded in 1565. It has beautiful Spanish-style architecture and the oldest wooden school house in the U.S., in a replica village of the original settlement. Daytona Beach is home to Speedway Racing since cars first raced along the firm sands in 1902. Cape Canaveral is home to the Kennedy Space Center and offers a great day out. If you are really lucky, there may be a space shuttle launch during your stay.

Weather in Northeast Florida

The northeast coast of Florida enjoys some of the best weather all year with sea breezes making the 90-degree Fahrenheit (32 C) summer highs more bearable. Winter daytime highs are around 67 degrees Fahrenheit (20 C) and the rainiest months are from June to September when short afternoon showers are likely.
