Perfect for guests with four-wheel drive as this property is only accessible by driving on the sand for several hundred yards... It’s the perfect combination of traditional beach house charm and contemporary convenience. Newly renovated, White Sand sits oceanfront in Summer Haven, its wraparound decks and huge windows bringing you sweeping views of sand, sea, and sky!
White Sand Beach House looks directly onto the beach in front and the Matanzas River in back. Watch the sun rise (and dolphins cavort) at dawn over the ocean, and the sunset (and birds wheel by) at evening. The views are absolutely unbelievable! And you can enjoy them from wraparound decks, sundecks, the lanai – there are outdoor spaces everywhere at White Sands, and you’ll love exploring them all.
This house may look traditional from the outside, but inside it is completely renovated and thoroughly modern, with all the conveniences and little luxe touches that make a vacation rental even more special. Sloping ceilings with high windows, outdoor access from many rooms, and decks and balconies galore create an indoor/outdoor feeling you’ll love, enhanced by sea foam colored walls, polished hardwood floors, and plenty of sunshine.
Step into the living room and sink into one of the ultra-comfortable beige leather sofas. One faces the big flat-screen TV, while the other looks onto the fireplace and double sliding glass doors leading to a balcony. This is a room to snuggle into for an evening of entertainment and fun.
Between the living room and the kitchen is a sun-filled dining area with a big table and great ocean views. This is clearly Family Central, the nerve center for everything from the laptop (you have free wireless Internet at White Sand) to heated games of Go Fish. Station the camera and binoculars here; there will always be someone around to grab them when exciting things occur!
The kitchen at White Sand is thoroughly modern, with big windows over the sink and all the space you need for food and drink. You'll find everything here to prepare and serve meals, plus time-savers such as a microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, and blender. You may mostly be packing picnics for the beach or carrying snacks out to the decks, but everything you need is here -- just add the groceries!
When it's time to retire for the night, rest easy in the spacious, beautiful bedrooms at White Sand. The master suite is airy and bright, with an ultra-comfortable queen-sized bed, flat-screen TV, comfy reading chair and wicker loveseat, and access to an oceanfront balcony. Count the stars from your pillows in the master bedroom!
The master bath is simply luxurious, boasting a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, and his-and-her vanities. You'll never want to leave!
The second bedroom is spacious and restful as well. Leading directly to the lanai via sliding glass doors, it also has a huge window with lovely ocean views and a flat-screen TV.
The third bedroom is a children’s paradise, destined to become a clubhouse for the youngest members of your gang. Against one wall is a twin-sized daybed; against another is a set of bunks with a double on the bottom and a twin on top. A flat-screen TV and DVD player stand ready for entertainment, while entire walls of windows let sunshine pour into the room. There’s plenty of space here for play and sleep.
The second bathroom at White Sand is sparkling new and luxe, with a separate powder room as well as a shower/tub combination. And all of the linens you need are provided here, as well as the towels, blankets, and pillows, not to mention a washer and dryer to keep everything fresh. Pack light and come as you are; we've got you covered!
Note: Available again but only to skilled drivers with four-wheel drive as it is only accessible by driving on the sand for several hundred yards. The original road has washed away. The only way to get to this house is via four-wheel drive on sand. White Sand is in Summer Haven, a historical area that is slowly vanishing due to coastal erosion. It's very close to Fort Matanzas and is just fifteen minutes from St. Augustine, the oldest city in the nation. The beach is quiet here, with plenty of wildlife and no traffic or crowds. Come stay in this beautiful spot before it is changed forever!
