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.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house is cute, neat, near the beach, and close to services and town. And the hosts supply everything ... from kayaks to bicycles. We plan to rent it again next year.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Sea Salt Sanctuary is a beautiful and peaceful home that is filled with love. It is well maintained, very clean and has everything you need. It is definitely a "home away from home." Although it was a short trip for us, being in this lovely home made the stay so comfortable. Since the beach is just a short block away, we were able to squeeze in a quick visit. The home is filled with so many extras, so one morning we took advantage of a bike ride in the beautiful sun! Attractions are close by, so touring St. Augustine is a breeze. Trish is a pleasure to work with. She is prompt with her responses and even provided some leads with a day trip that I was planing. I can't say enough good things about Sea Salt Sanctuary and look forward to returning in the future for a longer stay. You will not be disappointed with this lovely home.

Has it all!

  • 5 of 5

Great location - great accomodations! Not one detail overlooked. We really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Salt Sanctuary. Walking distance to restaurants & the beach. On Friday night, - great view from the beach of a launch from Cape Canaveral. A first for us!

Wish the weather cooperated a little more. Wanted to enjoy the back yard- too cold ! We did love seeing the sun everyday, as this has been scarce from Central New York.

Met up with family for the weekend- enjoyed walking around Farmer's Market at the Ampitheater, San Sebastián Winery, Dog Rose Brewery and walking around St. Augustine.

Thank you!

Very charming and very well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful hideaway! We visited for a few days while attending a wedding and the related activities. The house had everything we could possibly have needed and was only a ten minute ride to downtown St. Augustine where we needed to go. The sofa and beds were wonderful for relaxing and sleeping. The beds were made and ready to crawl into and drift off into dreamland! Robes, slippers and fluffy towels made rising in the mornings easier. I can't say enough about how clean, calming and comfy the house was. We can't wait to visit again in a warmer month when we can take advantage of the beach bikes, paddle boards and kayaks as well as that lovely, secluded back yard paradise! This gem of a place really is a sanctuaty to relish! So glad we discovered this lovely place and hope to be frequent visitors. Thank you

Cozy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing we can add to the comments already posted, this home is exceptional! Everything is top shelf from the kitchen utensils to the bedding and bath towels! And we felt a sense of warmth and comfort in the house. The decor is elegant and appropriate, not overdone and excessive. During our stay it was cold and it rained some days, so we didn't have a chance to utilize ALL the beach gear and toys in the garage. However, we had so much fun playing games, watching movies and chatting over coffee thanks to generous selection of games and movies. It really saved our vacation! This was also our first VRBO experience and Trish has set the bar very high so we will be back! Thank you for offering your lovely home and going beyond the standard! God Bless!

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.
