Newly updated. Enjoy a tropical oasis at Summer Wind, our 2-story house just yards from Crescent Beach. Beautifully landscaped with an updated back deck with new outdoor furniture, a heated pool and boasting a wraparound balcony, this is the perfect indoor/outdoor Florida living space for your next vacation!
Stand out on the long, wide wooden balcony and savor the panoramic views of the ocean, sky, and green St. Augustine beauty! Though you're just 2 houses from the beach at Summer Wind, on a quiet cul-de-sac with a dune walkover just steps from the front door, you also are part of a neighborhood, and the landscaping is beautiful year-round. The house was just recently upgraded in November 2017 with a new outside deck, 4 all new glass sliding doors, new painting, new mattresses, and an upgraded lower floor bathroom.
Step indoors from the second-floor balcony and you enter the main living and dining area at Summer Wind. (There's also a family room downstairs -- great when the group has competing TV programs or activities in mind!) One entire wall is taken up by glass doors to the balcony, while comfy couches and chairs face a big flat-screen Dish TV (included all premium channels) with DVD player and satellite selection of premium channels. The kids will feel at home in here at once, sprawling out with Legos and Bionicles on the floor, while their parents admire the view, try not to nap, and perhaps enjoy frosty cocktails from the kitchen.
Speaking of the kitchen, you will love working in this remodeled room, with open cabinets, a big window over the sink, stainless-steel appliances, and dropped lighting. The cupboards are stocked with dishes, cookware, utensils, and everything you could ask for -- no running to the store for a colander or a can-opener at Summer Wind! This is a family house, with all the cookie sheets, corkscrews, and whisks that come with the territory.
In one corner of the room is a cheery breakfast table, just the right size for two or three to enjoy mid-afternoon coffee and pastries, play a quick round of gin rummy, or do a little social media updating on the laptop (you have free WiFi at Summer Wind). It's also a nice place to station a chopping board for your sous-chefs to help with dinner!
There are also 3 bedrooms upstairs: the master suite with HDTV, another great room for a couple, and the perfect space for the kids. The master suite is the jewel in Summer Wind's crown, sporting a king-sized bed, hardwood floors, glass doors leading out to the balcony, and splendid views. The en-suite bath has a walk-in shower and houses the full-sized washer and dryer that are yours to enjoy during your stay.
The second bedroom upstairs is beautiful as well, with a queen bed and balcony access. It shares a bathroom with the third bedroom, containing one queen and one twin-sized bed. A big window overlooks beautiful scenery in this cheerful room, which is just right for children.
The fourth bedroom is downstairs, convenient for grandparents, early risers, or teenagers who want some " space." This spacious room offers a queen-sized bed and direct access to the patio. It adjoins the family room, which has plush furnishings and a big flat-screen. Summer Wind is ideal for two families traveling together, or for multi-generations!
But the best part of the house isn't the house itself: it's all the outdoor spaces that make Summer Wind such a pleasure to explore. In addition to the new wraparound wooden deck on the second floor, there is a big covered patio on the first set with comfy rocking chairs and outdoor table for 8 people.
There is also seating around the heated swimming pool, on ledges composed of smooth rocks that blend perfectly with the tropical landscaping. The pool itself is dazzling blue and so enticing on a warm summer day . . . or a hot summer night, for that matter! It's just part of the huge garden here, a great place for lounging, sunbathing, and contemplation.
Best of all, Crescent Beach is just a minute's walk away, with no streets to cross or traffic to contend with. Bring the whole gang to the beach and comb the shore at low tide for shells and shark teeth; splash in the surf; count the pelicans' dive-bombing in the waves, and build the sandcastle of your dreams.

We had a great experience, the house was lovely
Good Location, But house and posting need some updates
Great location, but the house and the VRBO posting need some updating. For those who do not want to read the details, I will summarize by stating that I will not be a return guest to this property or VacationRentalPros. Trust me you can find a better home and better service for the price (other reviews are old). Issues include:1) Accuracy of Rental Posting- The home is not a 4 bedroom, it is a 3 bedroom with the4th room being a bed placed in a foyer. I requested a change in property of which VRPros never addressed.
2) Access to Home- If the supposed "4th" bedroom is not bad enough, the house was recently changed so that there are no keys, only a keypad entry which they placed on the downstairs door, which coincidentally has you enter the "4th" bedroom. Basically don't plan on using the downstairs room, as it is the only secured access/entry point to the house. I requested a change or location and/or keys to the home, of which I was never addressed by the owner/VRPros.
3). Condition of the Home: The Deck and outside furniture are in complete disrepair and not safe, e.g. very loose and buckled boards, broken safety gate to stairs off deck, rusted/broken furniture (had to move 5 pieces to the garage), some type of rodent living in a hole chewed into the side of the house ,etc . It was embarrassing to have guests visit as the table and deck were in such bad condition.
One of the Patio doors would not shut, seal or lock (instead they used a stopper to prevent entry). This is fine for security, but there was a very visible opening to the outside that was more than welcoming for roaches during our stay. These items were reported to VR Pros and/or owner and I received no response.
4)Pool Issues: The pool pump quit working on our 3rd day of vacation. After calling maintenance, I received instructions 12 hours later regarding how I could fix the pool myself (awesome service!!!!). When that did not work, the owner sent a handyman the next day who got the pool working, but the pool had filled with algae. The next day an actual service showed up to shock and kill the bacteria/algae that had grown in the pool. Either way, we had no use of the pool for 3 of the 6 days we rented.
5) Layout: I will just note that this home offers little privacy. The doors are shutter-like and provide little-to-no noise barrier. Not a place that I would suggest for multiple couples and or children.
Overall I was very disappointed with this rental and the service.
We loved the house! It was very private and felt like home. The space inside was clean and had open areas for family time as well as private places to relax.
Perfect vacation, stayed during the week of October 21st. Seemed we had the beach to ourselves, weather was perfect, just could not have been any better.
Nice house great beach.
The house was close to the beach. The beach was wide and pristine we had a great time. Loved the fact that we could sit on the deck and watch the ocean. The house was nice and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, dishes etc. The house sleeps We enjoyed our stay. Loved having the beach so close that you could see it from the deck. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots, pans etc. The house sleeps 8 but the common areas are tight, table only sits 4. Pet friendly House but the grounds aren't.
The house is a great setup and very comfortable. My only complaint would be kitchen utensils are lacking.
