Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 14

It’s an easy decision to book the rental that’s totally renovated and outfitted, top to bottom, with the makings of your perfect family vacation. Chiquita’s Sun House is a 4-bedroom house with a gold-medal rating, so invite your best group of up to 14 people and dive into your heated private pool!

Outdoors you get twice the chance to enjoy Florida’s beautiful sunshine. Not only in and around the large (13‘X26’) private pool but also upstairs, on a veranda furnished as a comfortable outdoor living space. With ceiling fans, a huge L-shaped couch and view to the pool below, it’s the perfect place for the lazy mornings you’re dreaming of. In the afternoon after you’ve had enough sun, pile on to the outdoor couch or armchair, as your appointed bar-tender mixes up some easy refreshments.

Indoors, the heart of the house is the newly redecorated living room. Rarely can such a tailored space simultaneously be so cheerful? Mirrors, tasteful lighting fixtures and lovely accents in pops of ocean colors set a stunning scene against gleaming hardwood floors. Indeed, Chiquita’s Sun House is a magazine-pretty space that’s ready to bring you and your family together. Two large white couches face each other across a coffee table perfect for board games and sharing snacks.

Against the wall, facing the fireplace and TV is the third couch. Floor cushions are scattered on a beautiful blue and white rug so there’s always room for more. The room is lit with fantastic natural light all year but, once the sun goes down, you’ll really love the fireplace (especially in the winter or over the holidays). Need more? There’s a flat screen TV hanging just above.

The kitchen is fully updated – a gorgeous example of the perfect white kitchen you’ve probably pinned on Pinterest. An L-shaped counter ends in a versatile breakfast bar. Between this and the open-plan living area, a large dining table seats eight (so who’s cooking?).

The key to any great vacation home: tons of sunshine and even more flexibility. As such, the four bedrooms at Chiquita’s Sun House will suit both a small family or a large group of up to 14 guests. A master bedroom rewards your matriarch/patriarch, while bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 offer a choice of queen bed, four bunk beds and a sleeper sofa/day bed combo.

This gold-rated property is ready to spoil you with extras, and free Wi-Fi is just the start! Ample parking, a washer/dryer, HDTV and air conditioning ensure you’re always as comfortable as you are entertained.

With fantastic proximity to miles of white beach, historic downtown St. Augustine and dozens of day trip ideas (we can’t recommend Kennedy Space Center highly enough), Chiquita’s Sun House scores A+ for location. Yet, once you have a drink in hand in your backyard private pool or pile all together on the living room’s three coaches – will you ever leave your family’s Vacation HQ?

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a beautiful vacation townhouse that opens directly onto the ocean. I loved the bay window and the balconies! The bathrooms and kitchen were exquisite and well stocked. We had our family there for a graduation and rented this house as well as the house connected to it. The arrangement was perfect for our purposes. I highly recommend this house for a relaxing vacation.

Great for seven of us! But issue with VRBO maintenance

  • 3 of 5

I think the cusions on the deck really need to be changed or recovered due to staining. There needs to be something done with the stairs leading to the pool due to being extremely slippery (i slipped down the stairs). It would also be great if there were Beach towels available. The table down by they pool is very rusty and needs to be replaced.

The washing machine broke down after being there for two days. I called maintenance and someone came right over. He told me that the mother board needs replacement. He let me know that someone would be here tomorrow. No one called or showed up! I made several called only to find out that the part has been ordered. Well..... Needless to say, I made well over 15 calls to multiple numbers that I had to find out when it will be fixed or a replacement delivered. Communication with VRBO was awful! We finally had a washing machine delivered on Wednesday. We rented this property with the assumption that it had a working washing machine. We were without a washing machine for four days... Not good when you have three teenagers!!! We had to wear dirty clothes and use dirty towels! The fact that I had to call multiple times was ridiculous!! I'm on vacation and shouldn't have to keep calling for a solution!

We stayed there July 2016

Spring Break 2015

  • 4 of 5

Spring Break 2015 will definitely be remembered as a great trip! The St. Augustine area is fantastic, lots to do, great restaurants, beautiful beaches. We chose this house b/c of the pool and size. SB weather can be iffy and we wanted an option if it were too cold for the beach. Everything about the inside of the house was wonderful. Amazing kitchen with everything you need & fully updated (though the door ice dispenser was broken). Bedrooms were beautifully decorated. The room with 2 sets of bunks is marketed for 8 people...that would be a stretch. For our group of 4 kids & 4 adults, it was perfect though. The back deck was a great place to hang out. It does need some TLC in the cleaning department. The cushions on the sectional are badly stained. So much that we covered them with an extra set of sheets so we could sit on it. There was mold on some of the chairs. All this can easily be "fixed". The pool deck could use a good pressure washing and perhaps the trees trimmed to eliminate all the leaves in the pool. We had to call to have the pool cleaned when we got there, as it had lots of "dirt" on the bottom. They came Monday and took care of it all. We would consider staying here again, with no more than 8-10 people, and would definitely recommend it to others.
