About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 10

Some say that unspoiled Crescent Beach is the best beach in the St. Augustine area. We think that Four Palms Beach House, which sleeps 10 and has a direct boardwalk to the beach, is one of the area’s best vacation houses.

Newly renovated and superbly decorated, Four Palms has a covered deck that spans the width of the house and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. With a table and seating for 6, the deck is perfect for savoring an alfresco meal while watching dolphins swim beyond the surf and seabirds soar past.

Patio doors connect the deck to the spacious open-plan living space. A roomy sectional sofa allows the whole gang to kick back and watch a favorite movie on the 48” HDTV with DVD player.

Behind the sofa is a dining table that seats 6, along with the breakfast bar with room for 4 more. If you’re vacationing with the kids, they can play a game back here while the grown-ups stretch out on the sofa, or you can set up your laptop here and surf the web using Four Palms’ free wifi while everyone else is busy in the living room.

The kitchen has its own table, with chairs for 4 and built-in banquettes. Fully equipped with gleaming appliances, cookware, and tableware, it opens up to a balcony overlooking lush landscaping and the famed Intracoastal Waterway beyond. Make a point of catching at least one sunset from this vantage point, camera in hand: You won’t want to miss the spectacular colors of the sky!

The master suite, also on the 3rd floor, has its own balcony facing the Intracoastal. Enjoy a nightcap out here on the deck chairs, gazing up at the stars, before retiring to the lofty king-size bed, where you can watch a favorite show on the HDTV. The en-suite bathroom has both a slipper tub for soaking and a large walk-in shower.

For maximum convenience, there’s a washer and dryer on the 3rd floor, so you can pack light. Nor do you have to bring your own towels or blankets: Four Palms Beach House will have plenty of fresh linens and bedding waiting for you.

With its own family room-- complete with 38” HDTV and a comfortable sofa that opens into a bed for 2 more--the 2nd floor is almost its own mini apartment, which makes Four Palms Beach House a great choice for 2 families vacationing together. This floor has its own deck, furnished with 2 rocking chairs and a small table. It’s ideal for escaping with a book and a drink for some me time.

Three more bedrooms are on 2nd floor, and they’re all furnished with the same attention to detail as the master suite. One has a king-size bed; the second, with ocean views, has a queen-size bed; the third, also overlooking the ocean, has a twin bed as well as bunk beds, so that up to 3 people can make this room their own. The 3 bedrooms share 2 full bathrooms, each with tub and shower.

There’s a 2nd laundry area on the ground floor (again, perfect for 2 families traveling together!). Guests can use one of the garages on this level (the other garage is locked for owner use), and the huge driveway can easily accommodate another 6 cars. The patio has a grill so that you can cook up your catch from a day spent fishing on the Matanzas River… or burgers and dogs from one of the nearby supermarkets.

The patio leads to the private boardwalk that takes you over the dunes to sparkling Crescent Beach. Given how close you are, you’ll no doubt be dashing back and forth all day. Should you tire of the beach, however (hard to imagine, we know!), there are plenty of other activities just minutes away to enjoy during your stay: fishing, biking, hiking, and boating along the Intracoastal; touring St. Augustine’s Old City; Marineland…

For a great vacation, you need a great place to stay in a great location. Four Palms Beach House is just that place. You deserve the best, so go ahead: Book your vacation here today.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and large and there was plenty of room for all of our guests. The kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/utensils and glasses. As a previous reviewer commented there is only 1 roll of TP provided for each bathroom and for a 5 day stay most people would agree that that is not enough. As well, there is no soap provided for the showers, so bring your own. For the amount of money I paid to stay I would think that this could be provided as these are relatively inexpensive items. Minor inconvienences for an otherwise perfect stay. Would definitely stay again!

Worst Property Management Company Ever!

  • 1 of 5

I hate to give such a poor review to this home, but until the owners replace their property managers, this property will be a disaster.

First the good: This home is located right on the beach, has a private boardwalk over the dunes to the beach, has amazing views and a fantastic deck overlooking the ocean, has comfy beds and plenty of space. There ya have it!

The bad: I have rented approximately 50 vacation rentals in the past 20 years, and I have never had to buy my own toilet paper, dishwashing soap, paper towels, and hand soap, unless we used an abnormally high supply. Considering how much this rental costs, I'd think you could stock more than one roll of tp per bathroom. I don't mind washing towels, but one dish towel and one dish cloth total, and one bath towel per person seems a little bit ridiculous. The couch you have in the picture must have been on day one before all the wear and stains. My stomach churned sitting on it. Also, there was some foul smell coming from the basement (locked closets) when we arrived. I left a message with the property managers regarding such but never heard back from them. So the kids in the downstairs rooms had to live with that nasty smell the whole week. How is this anything close to a luxury property at this point? And finally, the property management company does not honor the pricing listed here on VRBO and will sneak in extra charges. Pay CLOSE attention to your contract. I have never been disappointed with homes I have found on VRBO, until this one. This is the worst review I have ever written.

Beach location perfect! Lay out of house with 4 BR 4 bath wonderful for family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The owners did a wonderful job of creating a very warm and inviting environment. We especially loved the covered porch where we began our days watching the sun rise over the water and ended each day listening to the waves crash on the beach and marveling at a sky lit up with stars!!

Another unique feature of this house is a sweet little reading nook complete with comfy couch and chair as well as an eclectic array of books. The rating did not give an option for the 4.5 I would give this delightful beach house. The only thing that kept me from a 5 rating was the slow response of the property management group relative to everything being in working order and clean.

Beautiful property! Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Four Palms. We've stayed at many beach rental properties but this was by far the best. The views were spectacular and the beach went on forever. I liked the fact that the house was so clean when we arrived and the kitchen was well appointed. The beds were amazing! Everyone woke refreshed and ready to explore. We truly couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation. We'll definitely be back next year.

Great beach home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful ocean front home in Crystal Beach. This was our first trip to this area. We usually stay in Destin, but needed to stay on the Atlantic this year so the family could join us. We were very pleasantly surprised at the clear water, and soft sand. The house itself was very nice. Everything worked well and was clean on arrival. The beds were nothing fantastic but comfortable. The porch looking out over the ocean was our favorite place to sit. The beach walk was a little longer than some places we have stayed, but not a bad walk, and we walked a lot on the beach. There is driving allowed on the beach but was not a problem at all, and nothing like the traffic at Daytona. The parking and location were great. There are several good restaurants nearby, grocery stores 5-10 minutes away, and St Augustine is a short drive away. For 5 adults and 1 child it was perfect. We would definitely stay again.

Almost Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

This house is so wonderfully beachy.. Furnishings and decorated touches were spot on. Location is excellent..there is room to accommodate 10, however, there were ONLY 10 bath towels... I don't think anybody wants to stay inside doing laundry everyday . Part of our group flew in so bringing their own bath towels was not an option. The porches are great and if the Oceanside porch had ceiling fans it would have been perfect. the house is so bright and happy... The views are wonderful... We could watch sunrise and sunset from inside this adorable house... Definitely on our list to rent again! Maybe next year the towel problem will be resolved and this will earn five stars!
