The second floor is fronted with a wide balcony with a great view of the ocean - the perfect place to start your day with breakfast. Pelican Hill is just off Matanzas Avenue - a public access ramp - which provides driving, bike riding, or walking access to beautiful St Augustine Beach. The beach is a 2 minute stroll away.

To watch the sunsets, the house has a two-story deck on the back accessed from the master bedroom on the 2nd floor. The 2nd level of the deck is at the roof-line which is actually higher than the treeline so you can see forever.

Clean is our thing!

Enjoy the sights of St Augustine and the remarkable dining (recommendations available) - and Orlando Disney is an easy day-trip away.

About Bill Lipner

My wife and I reside in Asheville N.C. but I was raised in Tallahassee, Florida and have always enjoyed my visits to the St. Augustine area. I introduced my wife to St Augustine some 20 years ago - and she was hooked! We jumped at the opportunity to own a house here and visit often.

Bill Lipner purchased this House in 2002

Why Bill Lipner chose Butler Beach

The best part of St Augustine is its sense of history. That means no condominum towers, no obtrusive development near the historic district, and residents who really care about preserving a certain slower, quieter way of life.

What makes this House unique

The View. As soon as I walk into the living room and see the ocean stretching to the horizon, the tension, worries, and rush-rush feeling .... just melt away. The proximity to the beach: it takes about 3 minutes to walk down the driveway and to the beach - which means I still have plenty of morning coffee for my stroll along the shore.

                                                            Hands down BEST stay in St. Augustine!!!!

                                                            Kailey K.

                                                            Let me just start by saying the pictures do not do justice of how gorgeous this home is and the view. It’s a cozy and homey stay and the beach is just a block away. You could easily sit out and listen to the waves. Since it was just me and my husband, everything we needed was in the top floor. The master bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, and porches. The 2 extra bedrooms and bathroom were on the first floor. The layout of this home is gorgeous. Where the home is located, it’s perfect distance from downtown. So you aren’t stuck with downtown traffic, but you could get to it in 10-15 minutes.

                                                            Bill had wonderful communication with us throughout our entire stay making sure we had everything we needed. He recommended some very delicious places to eat and things to do. He also provides beach chairs, bikes, a grill, umbrellas, footballs to throw, etc. We definitely took advantage of the beach chairs and things since we didn’t come prepared. So we were very happy we had access to them.

                                                            The front porch and back porch are stunning. The back porch leads off of the master and has a set of stairs to another level on top of the house. There was such a gorgeous view. We loved watching the sunrise up there. Then we ate breakfast on the front porch so we could listen to the waves.

                                                            My only complaint is the rug around the master bed. It hurt my husband and I’s feet whenever we were barefoot. Maybe we just have sensitive feet?

                                                            Regardless we will be back and definitely have a longer stay. This will be the only home we stay in from now on. Thank you so much Bill for opening up such a lovely home for us to stay in.

                                                            The property has a very friendly feel to it.

                                                            The property is clean and neat. A beautiful view. A very quiet peaceful place. Everything you need for a home away from home. Enjoyed my stay close to the Atlantic.

                                                            Needed a lot of upgrades

                                                            Very dated with a lack of necessities. Beds very uncomfortable and pillows in need of replacement.

                                                            Cannot please everybody, but this is the first 2-star review in 15 years...

                                                            fantastic Saint Augustine Beach getaway

                                                            andrea l.

                                                            My husband and I enjoyed a very fun and relaxing long weekend at the Pelican Hill beach house for my birthday in April.

                                                            Communication between Bill and I was perfect. He is very quick to respond via text or email, and upon arrival he shot me a text to make sure we had found everything OK and were settled. He was readily available during our entire stay.

                                                            The location of the house is absolutely perfect. We wanted to check out historic Saint Augustine, but we also wanted a relaxing beach experience and we found that and more at Bills beach house. We had a car that we used for exploring during the day, and in the evenings we took an uber into town, which was maybe 15 minutes away. Not bad at all. The home is just one block away from the beach! We walked down there and sat in the super soft sand and watched the waves. One afternoon there was a small wedding taking place. Bill has bikes available for you to use if you like.

                                                            I loved the set up of the house, and the decor. The house was pretty immaculate as well.

                                                            Its two stories, with two bedrooms and a full bathroom downstairs. I'm a light sleeper and my husband snores, so some nights he slept downstairs. That bedroom was nice and dark, great for snoozing. The kitchen is so cute and we made breakfast and sat at the lovely dining room table looking out at the blue skies, watching the sun rise.. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking, including spices ect. Just hit up publix right down the way and you'll be set. I loved how open the top floor is, with doors opening up to a very large deck, perfect for watching the stars. The upstairs has wonderful natural light coming in. We watched netflix with the roku stick and rented a dvd from the redbox nearby. The master bedroom is very roomy and comfortable, and the master bath is HUGE, with a very large tub as well. I enjoyed a nice bath, I never get to do that at home! I liked going up to the roof top deck to watch the sun set. With this house, you can watch the sun rise, AND the sunset. That is pretty cool.

                                                            I encourage anyone considering staying here to do so. My husband and I are looking forward to many return visits.

                                                            Lots of great restaurants in the area as well as fun place to explore. Thanks Bill!

                                                            Great location for beach

                                                            Property is in a great location for beachgoers. Nice residential area to take walks. House was clean and well maintained. Restaurant and convenience store was in walking distance.

                                                            Very nice place to relax.
