Excellent home for our annual family Spring Break trip

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun during our annual spring break trip. We loved staying at this beach house! It has the best layout for a large group so everyone can enjoy togetherness but still have a place of their own to retreat to. The beach access is amazing just walk out the back door and you are there. The sunrises can be enjoyed on any of the three decks or even while you are still inside the house with all the windows. We found so many shark's teeth as we walked up and down the beach. Rick and Jenny were great and made sure we were comfortable and happy with our accommodations.

Ocean Retreat Is A Great Place

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 of us that stayed there and we had an amazing time. The house is great for several people, with lots of room and 2 good sized gathering spaces. The owners were great to do business with as well. If we go back to St Augustine we will certainly try to rent this house again!

We loved this place!

  • 4 of 5

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Ocean Retreat over Labor Day weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The place is large enough to accommodate our large family of 13. There was enough space for family gatherings and alone time. The kitchens and bathrooms could use some updating but that's the only issue I saw. Other than that the home is well appointed, including boogie boards and other beach stuff including beach towels! Great place!! You could even order your groceries through Instacart!

Ocean Retreat is Stellar!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ocean Retreat! The house had plenty of room- we had 6 adults and 7 teenagers and the two living spaces worked really well for us. The house is well stocked with beach towels, chairs and toys which is great especially when you are flying in. The location is fantastic- close to great grocery stores and 10 minutes from St. Augustine for all kinds of great food and entertainment ( something for every age ). The roof deck, however will make you never want to leave - best views of ocean and ICW - best star gazing ever. The owners were easy to work with- I can't say enough good things!!!!

Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful beach house located on a quiet stretch of beach between Ponte Vedra Beach and St. Augustine. The views of the sun rising over the ocean and setting over the preserve are spectacular and a perfect way to begin and end each day. There are ocean views from every room. With 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms there’s enough room for a crowd without feeling crowded.

I loved the wrap around decks and the crows nest

The house was immaculate and very well equipped, it had everything anyone could possibly want for a beach vacation. Definitely a very comfortable home away from home. Loved every minute of it.

Rick, the property manager, was extremely helpful and welcoming. Thanks again Rick for everything.
