Our home at Bluefish 16 combines the privacy of a house with all the amenities of a condo! Located in a small oceanfront group with a pool and private beach access, Bluefish 16 is a large, sun-drenched house with a huge deck, just minutes from the beach! Please Note: 1-week minimum stay, Saturday arrival and Saturday departure in season.
Known as a "house dominium" Bluefish 16 is in Surf Crest Village, a small complex right on St. Augustine Beach. As a guest here, you have access to our clubhouse, sparkling swimming pool, and private walkway to the beach. Everything is intimate, uncrowded, and private -- the perfect place for a relaxing vacation!
Our 2-story house contains 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, plus 2 living rooms -- one upstairs, one downstairs -- so your group has plenty of room to spread out. Best of all, we have a giant deck spanning the entire back of the house, with all the space you need to sunbathe, dine al fresco, and dream in the balmy sea breezes!
The master bedroom is enormous, with a king-size bed, HDTV, comfy couch, and huge windows for admitting sunshine and moonlight. With hardwood floors and walls the color of key lime pie (except the brilliant raspberry panel just behind the bed!), it's as cool and inviting as a morning swim. Once you see this lovely room, you'll plan on retiring early and sleeping late!
The second bedroom is also beautiful, with walls the color of margaritas and cool white fittings. There is a queen-size bed here, and plenty of space. Our third bedroom contains matching twins and citron walls, while the fourth has a single and trundle bed and sliding glass doors leading outside. Plenty of space for everyone here at Bluefish 16, all immaculately appointed and tastefully designed!
We have two full bathrooms at Bluefish 16, one with handsome tilework and wood cabinetry to complement its walk-in shower, the other with both a bathtub and shower option. All of your linens, pillows, blankets, and towel sets are provided here at Bluefish 16, so don't worry about packing a thing for the house. We've also got a washer and dryer, so you don't even need to overpack clothing. And it's so handy when all the swimsuits are wet but the kids want to go back to the beach just one more time before bed!
Our house is designed for comfortable privacy when it's time to get a good night's sleep, but it's also conducive to togetherness for entertaining and mealtimes. Both of our two large living rooms contains roomy couches and large LVD TVs with DVD players and VCRs. And because they're on different floors, one part of your group can be upstairs watching the big game while another is downstairs listening to music and reminiscing.
You will probably find yourself taking most of your meals outside on the deck -- it's just too beautiful not to! -- but in case you wind up inside, our dining area is perfect for a family feast. Our long, handsome table sits just beyond a huge, sunny window, and within easy reach of the kitchen counter, which doubles as a breakfast bar for informal dining. After the meal is over, toss everything into the dishwasher and then settle down to a round of Pictionary or Uno. Snacks and drinks are just a few steps away, the music's on in the DVD player, and life is good!
Our fully appointed kitchen is a chef's delight and is spacious enough for several cooks to get into the action. With all the major and minor appliances, gadgets, utensils, and cookware you need to prepare and serve just about anything, it may tempt you to fry up the catch of the day instead of eating out! Granite countertops, custom wood cabinetry, and all the nice little extras that make cooking more of a pleasure than a chore are waiting for you here.
Come stay at Bluefish 16 for your next vacation. It brings you all the comforts of home in an oceanfront setting. Stroll along the beach at sunrise to witness the spectacular dawn colors, spend an afternoon at the pool, and visit historic St. Augustine or nearby Marineland! There's so much to do and see here, in the perfect year-round weather.

St Augustine is great and Surf Crest Village is well located.
This property doesn’t offer any way to rinse off outside (other properties in the community have showers and hoses), which is a big miss for a beach house, especially one that allows pets. WiFi was weak and water pressure wasn’t adequate for a large group. Great beach access and pool was excellent.
Not quite as Advertised snd Customer Support was Lacking
The house was clean and freshly painted, but was lacking some things that would have made our stay more enjoyable. There were no bath mats, hooks in the bathroom to hang clothes on or blue recycling bins like all the other properties had. The vertical blinds were missing many pieces and didn't work properly either.
When we arrived we found that the WiFi SSID that we were supposed to use was not available. I called CS and they said to reboot the router. I also,told them that we had our grandson sleeping in a downstairs bedroom that had faulty blinds such that he could not close them at night. They said they would get back to me, but never did. Thirdly, I informed them there was a leak under the garbage disposal where a bowl had been placed to catch the water and had to be emptied periodically. Again, no action.
Later in our stay, the upstairs toilet started having an issue where it would not refill the tank after flushing. Once again CS were informed and said they would call me back to let me know what they could do about it. Again, no call! We had to use a jug to manually refill the tank whenever we used the toilet.
The rebooted router did not fix he WiFi issue and we never did see the Vacationrentalpros SSID.
Lastly, the information in the original ad was not correct.
It listed as "provided", bikes, tennis and golf. They were not!
It said that we would have access to the clubhouse. We did not!
It said that the kitchen was quote "Our fully appointed kitchen is a chef's delight and is spacious enough for several cooks to get into the action. With all the major and minor appliances, gadgets, utensils, and cookware you need to prepare and serve just about anything, it may tempt you to fry up the catch of the day instead of eating out! Granite countertops, custom wood cabinetry, and all the nice little extras that make cooking more of a pleasure than a chore are waiting for you here."
It was just a regular kitchen with an older microwave sitting on the counter which, by the way, was not granite, but was a granite look laminate.
In summary, it was not at all what we expected and customer service was non existant.

We have stayed at bluefish 16 before and wanted to stay again. It offers everything you need for a great vacation. Management was very helpful. the app was a great source of info. Thanks
Clean and convenient!
The location was great, he beach is within walking distance. The house is cute but needs to be cleaned better. Their was dust on fixtures, wax from a potpourri on wall, screen door fell off, etc. But it worked for the week for a family get together.
