Clean and cozy with amazing views and beach access
We loved working with David and enjoyed this cottage immensely. I wish it had a king bed in the main bedroom but the queen was comfortable. Would book this again great place and so convenient to all the attractions of St Augustine while remaining quiet and private.
Thank you for staying at Treasure Chest. It is a very cute little oceanfront cottage. We may see if we can get a king bed in the master bedroom. That would be a nice addition.
Perfect beach cottage
Spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean by day and tranquil sound of waves by night! Enclosed yard making it completely pet friendly. We stayed 7 nights in December 2017; only had a few days warm enough for the dogs to play in the surf; the other days we visited/shopped in historic St. Augustine❤️and went to Disney World Magic Kingdom. The location was fabulous, very close to all avenues to adventures. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy the property!
Treasure Chest is a treasure!
We used Treasure Chest as our home away from home while we explored St. Augustine. The home is very comfortable, pet friendly, and has a great view of the Atlantic Ocean surf. The home was clean and ready for us upon arrival. We appreciated its convenience for getting into St. Augustine and the availability to explore other near-by destinations such as Crescent Beach. There is plenty to do in the area or if you wish for a place to be cozy and not go anywhere, this home offers the perfect spot to sit and gaze. Great sunrises and walks along the beach for the early birds! Would highly recommend it!
Thank you for staying with us at Treasure Chest. It is a great little beach cottage. As mentioned, it is just a short drive from historic downtown St. Augustine, and all of the shops and sites it has to offer. We look forward to having you back again soon.
We stayed at this fabulous beach house December 11 to the 15th. We were on our way to the Eukanuba National Dog show to compete in agility. By the time we needed to leave for Orlando for the competition we didn't want to! The house was perfect. Fabulous environment for the dogs. LOVED THE FENCED YARD even though we don't leave our dogs outside unattended, knowing the fence was there was a wonderful safety net in case one got out the door when they weren't supposed to. The deck was wonderful. And the walkway to the beach perfect. Liked not having a tall walkway to the ocean as so many beach houses have. Listening to the ocean all night long was heavenly. My only recommendation would be a recliner or two for the deck for laying in the sun. Otherwise, it was perfect in all ways. Having the grocery store walking distance was a great plus. And being close to St. Augustine was great for eating options, although we found a great little resteraunt right near the grocery store that we went to twice. Our first night and our last night. Awesome place and we hoe to return next year.
Thank you for staying with us at Treasure Chest. As mentioned, the house is very close to the Vilano Town Center, where you will find a full service grocery store, liquor store, and several shops and restaurants. St. Augustine is only 5 minutes away by car! We hope to have you and the pooches back again next year. We will also look into getting a couple of reclining beach chairs!
Pleasant Beach House
We are just finishing up a very pleasant stay at Treasure Chest. We used to live inland near here and come back to see friends and enjoy the beach. This cozy cottage worked very well for entertaining a few friends in casual beach style. The gas grill came in very handy, as did the parking. The kitchen is small but cute and very well stocked. No ice maker but I prefer to buy ice since the water is, uh, Florida water. The umbrella on the deck provided nice shade. The property manager was very responsive to a couple of minor issues. The deck table and chairs are getting a bit rusty (put a towel on your chair) and the deck wood itself is splintering and will need replacement soon. I would not recommend this cottage for small children until that project is done. But it was fine with teens and adults. We wore our flip flops or walked carefully to avoid a cut or splinter. The yard is fenced if you close the gates across the driveway. Also, we were able to use plastic deck chairs to block off part of the deck to allow our terrier to keep us company on the deck. (I wasn't comfortable leaving her unsupervised down below, but that due to her nature, not the property.) Most interior doors don't lock (which bothered my teen when he wanted to change or shower). The view is lovely and the beach uncrowded. The cottage is walking distance or easy drive to Publix and restaurants. I love the location.
Thank you for your review. We are very glad that you had a great time. We will look into the deck issue. We did just replace the walkway to the beach for the same reason.
All the information on the house as well as the reviews are spot on. Wonderful warm and well appointed house with a unimpeded view of the ocean which is key for us. St-Augustine offers a much wider range of restaurants and activities than most beach towns. David (owner) was very responsive and cooperative. Highly recommend this rental.
Thank you for your comments. I, David, am not the owner. I am the property manager. But, I live near by and am always available if our guests need anything. The home owners have done a great job with this cozy little cottage. The remodeled kitchen, while small, offers everything a small group of beach goers could need. We look forward to your return visit.
'Treasure Chest' is located 3 miles from historic St. Augustine and 20 miles from posh Ponte Vedra. We have several public golf courses within a 20 minute drive, and St, Augustine offers many different activities. Stroll the quaint shops on St. George Street or explore the antique shops and art galleries scattered throughout town. Tour the town by trolley or horse and buggy; don't miss the Alligator Farm, Ghost Tours, Lightner Museum, Fort Matanzas, and the many historical attractions!
If you love water sports, you have come to the right place! You can rent surf boards, jet skis, canoes, and other boats; you can go para sailing, hot air ballooning or fishing in the ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway! All of our guests get discounts to several local businesses!
In Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville, you can go horse back riding on the beach, take surfing lessons, visit the great Jacksonville Zoo, or take in a Jaguars game!
We have something for everyone--but most guests love our beach house the most! You may never want to leave!
