Wonderful, comfortable, well-equipped beach house

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful, comfortable, well-equipped beach house surrounded by beautiful flowers. At one time this was probably an old style Florida beach cottage-but it was expanded to add a large master bedroom and bath and maybe the dining room. Most of the rooms, kitchen and bathrooms (3) appear to have been modernized and upgraded. They all have showers and baths. It has a small but lovely, mostly private pool that was a lifesaver for my wife and I during the intensely hot/sunny beach mid-days in June. The house (Seashell) is located in a small “neighborhood” that has mostly modest sized vacation homes nestled a good 100 yards from the beach behind a row of natural, vegetated dunes (home to gopher tortoises and rabbits). There is a wooden walkway about three houses down from the house that connects with Butler beach – a beautiful- not very crowded expanse of sand and warm surf. One of the best aspects of Seashell is dogs are welcome in the house (for a small fee) and they are allowed on the beach on a leash. Our dog River loved the beach and the fenced in yard around the pool in which she could explore.

Sea Shell itself is plenty large enough to accommodate/sleep at least 6 adults (8 with the foldout couches) and probably some children (and a dog?). There are plenty of couches and chairs to lounge on – including some on the patio outside. The master bedroom was very comfortable – the queen bed was firm but good for us. The kitchen is really well equipped with dishes, silverware, glasses, cups, pots, pans, coffee maker, toaster –large refrigerator/freezer – you name it. Probably the best equipped home we have ever rented. The owner is an artist who’s gorgeous watercolors adorn the walls along with many other originals from other local? artists. It makes the house feel very welcoming and lived-in. There are plenty of good restaurants and shopping within a few miles and downtown St. Augustine is only about a 15 minute drive away. If you are looking for a modern, upscale, fancy beach place or condo….this is not for you. But if you are interested in a very comfortable functional vacation beach house, we highly recommend it.

Outdated but it has a pool

  • 2 of 5

The plus to this home was the pool and the short walk to the beach, but I wouldn't stay in this home again. The overall feel of this home was old. The air was damp despite the AC being on. The beds were all uncomfortable and the master bedroom and bath was difficult to get cooled off...I believe because it was an add-on to the existing home. The items in the kitchen were old, and there was no ice maker in the fridge. AND this management company isn't the greatest. I've never been required to do so many housekeeping things (stripping beds, etc) before checking out, and the company that they pay to do the cleaning did a very poor job. There were cleaning product bottle left in the shower and the rugs from the bathrooms were damp and piled on top of the washer and dryers. Gross!

Charming & spacious

  • 5 of 5

My first impression was that the house appeared smaller than depicted HOWEVER the home is spacious and well laid out. Four adults and two dogs had a wonderful and relaxing time. The bedrooms were large & separate. The three baths were a nice size and the garden tub in the master suite was a nice touch. The house was very clean, decorated nicely & included many amenities: plastic ware for around the pool; a rolling cart for use to the beach and a hose area for washing the dogs & our feet.The pool and yard area was perfect for lounging. The wooden walkway to the beach was convenient & scenic. We loved being able to stay at a pet friendly home & in a neighborhood where we could take leisurely walks. The beach being only steps away. Rick was pleasant & responded quickly to any questions we had during the rental process. Christina (the cleaning lady) was gracious & the home was spotless. We would definitely rent this home again.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this home and found it to be a great place. The kitchen was had everything a person needs to make family meals. The beds were comfortable and having three bathrooms was great! The pool area, while a little small, was a lot of fun for the kids. It took less than a 3 minute walk across a nice bridge to get to the beach. The drive in to St. Augustine with all the attractions was less than 15 minutes. The house was clean and well maintained. The pictures on the site don't do the home justice. My son who is in a wheelchair was able to access the whole house (one of the showers is even wheelchair accessible) My only piece of advice is to be sure to bring some socks! The air conditioner works so well that our feet were cold the whole week. I would definately stay in this home again.
