About Sharon Freeman

My name is Sharon and I am 57 years old. I am a St. Augustine Beach resident (I live a mile from the property) and I used to rent properties here before I actually moved here. That was before the time of being able to see them online! I used to drive here all excited to see what kind of place we were going to get! That is why I want my place to be something that you absolutely LOVE when you arrive!

I love to go to the beach, read, paint and redecorate the beach house!!

I have a husband who lives and works in Miami as a general contractor and two sons who have just graduated college. One lives and works in Miami and one lives and works in Fort Myers. I can't believe I have children this old!!

I love my beach house and I love running this business. I love meeting all the guests and I have acquired many new friends this way!

Sharon Freeman purchased this house in 2007

Why Sharon Freeman chose Florida North East

Actually, I vacationed here in St. Augustine Beach for 23 years before I moved here. I would bring my children and stay with my dad who worked here for the months of April,May and June. When the kids were little, I stayed 6 weeks, as they got older and were in school we had to leave after their 2 week spring vacation. So when we finally owned a property here, I was so excited... I decorated it with a very bright and beachy decor, because I remembered coming here on vacation and being sooooo excited about what our place would look like--(those were the days before online viewing, you just got what you got over the phone) We have lived here now for 5 years and I love St. Augustine Beach as much as a full time resident as I did when I only got to be here a couple weeks a year....

What makes this house unique

I love our property because it has been newly remodeled, so it is fresh, clean and bright and beachy. I love being able to see the ocean and walk right over the dune to spend the day at the beach. Or to just stay home and float with a good book in the pool....I love our street, because it is quiet and I get to watch the surfers go by on their way to the beach and because it is only one block off of A Street, the hub of activity in St. Augustine Beach. We can walk over to the oceanfront restaurants, or the surf shop and be a part of the happy atmosphere of vacationers....I also love to sit on my oceanview deck with a glass of wine and a book and watch the pelicans fly by, the sun set or the moon rise over the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a comment from my guest that she sent to me, because she could not figure out how to put it in the guestbook herself, so I will just copy it verbatim.....Thank you Kate- "From the moment we arrived at the beach house we were in heaven! The description from Sharon the owner couldn't even describe how perfect the beach house was. She and her family were so accommodatiing in arranging everything needed. The location was amazing and the house was absolutely perfect! We had 4 families stay so it worked out great with the setup of the duplex. Each unit had 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths with the cutest beach decor. The huge decks were perfect for big family lunches and the pool was warm and beautiful. Thank you for the great location to get our families together! We will most definitely return!!

Perfect location and pet friendly beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were so happy to find a pet friendly cottage. The location was absolutely perfect (so close to the beach) and we enjoyed long walks on the beach every morning. Plenty of places to eat nearby. The cottage was well stocked with all the essentials. We will definitely be back.

great family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

The house is very close to the beach and the backyard pool area is amazing! The pool is inviting with lush plantings and plenty of outdoor furniture. The living and dining areas are cozy and comfy. While they are not conducive to entertaining, they were very comfortable for our us. It was easier for us to host family members for a pool side barbeque. Beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fine; the A side kitchen has been renovated and is a bit more modern. There is just 1 indoor shower in the shared bathroom upstairs, but it wasn't a problem for us. The outdoor shower is a pleasure!

Checking in and out were super simple. Sharon was warm and friendly, super helpful and prompt; whenever there was an issue she immediately worked to rectify it. The dryer didn't work until Thursday, but the repairman was there on Monday and had to order a part. Whenever he was there, Sharon was there to deal with him (meaning we didn't have to). Because my sister and her family were renting next door I was able to use that dryer in the interim.

There were pool toys and beach towels. Sharon made sure that we had beach chairs and an umbrella! We would stay here again!

The owner is so communicative, would definitely stay again, great choice!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a great fit for my family. It is truly just a few barefoot steps to the beach, and also has a beautifully landscaped warmed pool. The plants are mature and gorgeous, providing a nice amount of privacy. Sharon the owner is available by text and helpful. The condo is freshly updated and decorated so cutely. The upstairs deck access of the pool from the 2 bedrooms upstairs was very nice so that the late risers in the downstairs bedroom didn't have to be disturbed, as that bedroom also leads out to the pool, which was nice. I would certainly rent this property again if I return to Saint Augustine!

Overall the beach house was clean and well layerd out for a large group gathering and a family event. We used every room in the house and outdoor space. Everyone had a great time and the owners were friendly and very helpful! A five star all the way!

Great little beach getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing stay this past week with our pups!!! Great place to stay for a small family. We had everything we could have possibly needed. You are just steps from the beach, but remember SAB is a wide beach, I suggest a cart to carry your beach gear and if you like beach chairs... bring your own.

Sharon is an absolute treat to work with.

Everything is in walking distance for food, Old Town is 10 min away and grocery store is 1 mile.

Area is surprisingly quiet even though you are in the heart of it.

We cannot wait to come back!!!!
