About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Beach Haven is located on Anastasia Island, 10 minutes south of downtown St Augustine. It is perfect for a quiet beach get away or an active vacation! The in-ground heated pool provides privacy and safety for children and adults alike.

The neighborhood is quiet with a mixture of vacationers and year-round residents on a dead end street. The beach is a two-minute walk to our beautiful new wooden walkway that gives you breathtaking vistas of the dunes, beach and ocean, and peeks at the turtles, rabbits and other local four legged residents!

We welcome children and pets, but do charge a small pet fee. You will be minutes away from great restaurants, movie theatres, shopping, all types of water craft rentals, golfing, museums, art galleries and historic sites along the inter-coastal waterway and in downtown St Augustine.

Our summer rentals are week to week, but please email me with special requests!

Our vacationers return year after year, and I hope you will join them!

About Marilyn Dannehower

Jim and I wanted a beach home close to our friends and relatives in St Augustine, FL. We reside in Santa Barbara, CA and have always loved visiting the east coast, and Anastasia Island and Crescent Beach. Jim is an Electrical Contractor and I am a jewelry designer.

Marilyn Dannehower purchased this house in 2004

Why Marilyn Dannehower chose Florida North East

This neighborhood is so beautiful, many of the homes have year-round residents and we have made wonderful new friends. The ocean views are gorgeous, the beach is clean and wide and the water clean and clear. The pool is always the perfect temperature....There are fabulous restaurants within walking and/or biking distance and plenty of activities. Swimming, beach, biking, walking, surfing, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, shopping, dining....

What makes this house unique

Because the home has two living rooms, it's perfect for families. The kids can enjoy the huge couches downstairs and blast their videos and TV, and the adults can enjoy the deck, ocean views and Master Suite upstairs. The kitchen is so convenient with a long bar between the work area and the dining area, all open to the ocean vistas. The heated pool allows the kids to be entertained while the babies are napping and the moms can enjoy the shade or the sun too!

Sixth time at this house.

  • 5 of 5

In a phrase, we love this place! We have stayed at this house a number of times and it is always well maintained. Just a short walk to the beach and a short drive to the center of town make it the perfect location. The owner takes great care to make sure her guests are happy. We'll be back again in 2016!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beach Haven was the perfect place for our family vacation. The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable. The walk to the beach was gorgeous and close by - very convenient. The pool was a favorite for the kids. It is obvious the owners have put a lot of effort into providing a clean, fun place to relax and enjoy time together.

Wonderful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Beach Haven and had a wonderful time. The pool in the backyard is great! Property was fenced in so our little dog could wander about the yard chasing lizards! The walk to the beach was pleasant and the beach itself is beautiful. There are a lot of stairs at the house so it was a little challenging for the older member of our group. The beach is a "drive-on" section and the access was very convenient to the house. Overall, a very nice place to stay!

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property. Large spacious house and very well euipped. It is just a 1 1/2 blocks to the most gorgeous beach we have been on. We can walk for miles. We are here over spring break and it is so quiet.....Nice!! If you are not a beach person there is also a heated pool. Marilyn (owner) has been awesome followed up with to make sure everything was going well and solved a few minor issues over night.. It is a great house for 2 couples or a family reunion. There is lots of space for everyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan! Just a note that the block is only 4 houses and the half block is only 2 houses. We are a really quick walk to the beach, and have beautiful partial ocean views. Thank you for the great review, I'm so glad you had fun at Beach Haven!

Had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first Florida family vacation and have nothing but rave reviews for this property! The house was breath taking and I don't believe the pictures did it justice! The weather at the time was cold and a bit rainy, but coming from 3 feet of snow in South Dakota it was heaven. The house had all the amenities you would need including pool toys for the kids and the beach was a hop skip and a jump away. The view this house provides was spectacular and the area the house was in was gorgeous! We have talked about going back again and would defiantly stay here since the kids didn't want to leave! Thank you so much for the great family memories and allowing us to stay in an amazing house!

Great house, pool needed cleaning

  • 4 of 5

My family & I spent last week at Beach Haven. For the most part, we really enjoyed it. We are from the area & spend at least a week in St Aug Beach every summer. The house had everything we needed, was in a nice, quiet neighborhood, walk to beach was easy & pleasant. A/C worked great, we were always comfortable, both the King & Queen beds were super comfortable!

My main complaints are re: mgmt company I guess. We got there Saturday & couldn't connect to the wifi; I called mgmt either that day or the next, noting that it was a long, holiday weekend, but no one EVER called us back. About mid-week, we realized the yard hadn't been mowed, nor had the pool been cleaned. Rather than call the mgmt company, I emailed the owners directly. Never heard back, pool was never cleaned, yard wasn't mowed. Pool maintenance was the biggest issue as our routine is beach in the am, lunch & cocktails & pool in afternoon :)

When in St Aug Beach, be sure to go to Mango Mangos, Rita's, and Peterbrooke Chocolatier :)

Owner's Response: I am so glad to hear that you loved the house and the area! We just invested in new mattresses, glad you noticed! Unfortunately, our management company dropped the ball and did not see that the yard was not mowed. The pool was cleaned, but perhaps not to your standards, and I understand. the managment company and I both apologize for the oversight of the yard, and are constantly working to improve our services to our guests. The internet may have been down in the neighborhood, there is no need for a code to get on. Comcast is a bit spotty at time with coverage.
