About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Sea Salt is a sojourner’s sanctuary, as the journey of life calls for times of restoration. Sea Salt is a catalyst to inspiring restorative peace for your body, your mind and your spirit, while immersing yourself in this fresh and clean, positively inspiring beach home.

Plush and luxurious fabrications, PB 'Westin HEAVENLY Bed' and furniture, and ample lounging spaces indoors and outdoors offer elements of comfort and coziness, while this Pottery Barn showroom also feels fresh and bright. Amazing location one block from pristine St. Augustine Beach, within the heart of the famous A Street beach area in the City of Refuge, this setting begs for lingering strolls on the beach, inspiring conversations, and savoring a bit of the island life.

Sip your morning coffee with your toes in the powder-like sand while you soak in the warmth of the brilliant sunrise and the joy of watching the dolphins play in the Atlantic Ocean. Walk one block for surf lessons and great surf gear at the Pit Stop Surf Shop, or enjoy a positive cup of Joe at the Stir It Up walk up café, or relax at one of the great restaurants within walking distance. Grill out under string lights and savor good eats and great memories on the back porch. Ride a beach cruiser or walk to the Pier, Artisan/Farmer’s Market and Sprinkler Park, or local mini golf. Enjoy free evening summer concerts at the Pier and on the Plaza, and the spectacular Nights of Lights Illumination for the Holidays. Drive 5 miles off the island to explore all the amazing discoveries of historic downtown St. Augustine, the City of Refuge.

About The Owner

Scott and Trish Byrns fell in love and got married in St. Augustine, Florida, while Trish was attending Flagler College. The historic flavor, glorious weather, new discoveries and endless fun led us to create our Sea Salt Sanctuary beach house in this wonderful location. Truly one of America's best kept secrets, the City of Refuge will become a favorite destination for all who make the journey to this pristine place. Scott's passion as a Filmmaker and Trish's passions as a Professional Chef and Holy Yoga Instructor mean that Los Angeles, California is where we reside during much of the year. Yet, we never miss an opportunity to escape to our peaceful home in St. Augustine Beach. We hope you will enjoy our Sea Salt Sanctuary, surrounded by those you love, and will truly discover your very own fountain of youth! Mark 9:50. May God Bless You. ~Scott & Trish

Why The Owner chose Saint Augustine

Sea Salt is truly a unique Sanctuary where we love to enjoy a balance of fun adventures with restful days and a peaceful night's sleep! The romance of our luxuriously appointed beach house draws us in to lounge and linger, while the best kept secret beach lures us steps away to soft sand, beautiful walks, and the healing air and salty sea.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Sea Salt Sanctuary was absolutely amazing and I will definately plan another trip back. Very relaxing and cozy with everything you could possibly need! It is obvious that a lot of care was put in to the furnishing and decorating of this home. The Mermaid Lounge is inviting and makes you feel like you are in the tropics! It is a short block from the beach and a very easy drive in to St Augustine. If you are looking for a reasonably priced getaway it doesn't get any better!!! Thank you!!!

amazing home

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the nicest VRBO I have stayed.

Everything very high end. Great location. Clean. Very easy to access.

This place had everything I could possibly have needed and then some. Wish I would have planned to stay longer.

Definitely returning.

Fully stocked beach house

  • 5 of 5

Comfy home just a block from a wide beach. Every beach toy imaginable is there for you, including paddle boards and kayaks. Home is lovely and the perfect size for the four adults and baby in our party. They have thought of everything! Hope to return this winter.
