Panoramic ocean views, dunes filled with wildlife, 4 decks, and luxurious furnishings are all yours when you stay at Rising Sun, our beachfront house on Crescent Beach. A perfect rental for families with children-includes whirlpool tub, HDTVs, and more!
The views are million-dollar at Rising Sun, both out on the balconies (two offer ocean vistas, while the other two are spectacular sunset spots) and in the house. Filled with clerestory windows above the already large plate-glass windows and sliding glass doors, Rising Sun is lit with the sunshine all day long.
The living room is an enormous space, with a fireplace, 55" HDTV, plenty of seating, and even a conversation nook in a picturesque corner with panoramic views. Make it even bigger by opening the sliding glass doors and connecting the balcony to the rest of the room, adding the murmur of the surf and the calls of the birds to the soundtrack of your day.
The kitchen and dining areas are part of the action in the living room, too. Prepare to fall in love with the aqua-and-white, diner-style kitchen at Rising Sun, complete with tile backsplash and long breakfast bar boasting ultra-comfy padded stools. Stainless-steel appliances, hardwood floors, plenty of sunshine, well-stocked cupboards . . . this kitchen is all ready to host a pancake-making marathon, a fish fry, an array of exotic appetizers, or simply cereal and juice! You bring the groceries; we'll supply all cookware, dishes, and utensils!
If you think the living and dining spaces are nice, wait until you explore the bedrooms! The master is the jewel in the crown, with a king-sized bed, sliding-glass doors to the oceanfront balcony, TV, and an en-suite bath featuring a whirlpool tub and separate walk-in shower. This luxe master suite also offers a sunny little pocket of a room with masses of windows and a single bed, just right for a young child not yet ready to sleep too far from mom and dad!
Both of these bedrooms are on the second floor, as is one more: a large room with a queen and a single bed. This is great for another couple traveling with toddlers or a small child, and it also makes a nice clubhouse-style room for teens or older children. One door leads out to a balcony, and sunshine or moonlight pour in from many windows.
The other two bedrooms are on the first floor, which is very convenient if you're traveling with people whose sleep schedules don't all align. One bedroom has a lovely queen bed; the other is a kids' paradise with two sets of bunk beds, each sleeping 3. Push them together, pull them apart -- the kids will determine how best to arrange their very own private lair!
As beautiful as the interior is, Rising Sun is all about the outdoors. Wraparound decks, a private boardwalk over the dunes and down to the sugary white sands of Crescent Beach, even an outdoor staircase going from the first to the second floor -- everything is about outdoor living here! You'll find plenty of places to sunbathe, read, chat, and even update your social media or do a little work on the laptop (the free WiFi at Rising Sun works out on the deck, too!). Everyone in your group will soon have a favorite spot!
Just minutes by car from historic downtown St. Augustine, Rising Sun is ideally located for amazing sunrises (as you might expect from the name!) and brilliant sunsets, too. The Intracoastal Waterway is nearby, with quieter waters for canoes and kayaks, trails for walking and biking, and unbelievable natural wildlife. And the beach at your feet is unspoiled, uncrowded, and family friendly. You'll love fishing, bodysurfing, sandcastle building, and bocce-ball playing here!
Come stay at Rising Sun as soon as you can. You'll have a great time and make lifetime memories here!

Great Labor Day Weekend!
The house was great! Amazing location right on the beach and super easy access for this surfing/body boarding family. Tons of room and plenty of beds and bathrooms. The ultimate beach house! However, there were a couple of problems that we faced (and never really had to face before in other homes we have rented). First, the dish washer never really worked and always gave us an error message (we decided to simply wash everything by hand). Second, there were absolutely no cleaning supplies on hand. That normally is not a problem if we knew about it in advance. Also, no extra toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, shampoo/conditioner, laundry detergent or brooms/dust pans. Very strange for such a nice home. Lastly, I would highly recommend the owners do something about rat problem in the garage. Rat droppings everywhere and 3 rats were encountered while pulling our car in and out.
Awesome family vacation
Loved sitting in the big bay window in the mornings with our coffee or in the evenings with our wine and taking in the magnificent view! The beach was spacious, beautiful and easy to access. Perfect family vacation!

Beautiful living space. The decks need some serious maintenance though. Some information I'd like to share that I didn't know, may be helpful to others. There is a great outdoor shower. There is a small charcoal grill in the garage. There are few sand toys, no beach chairs or beach umbrella. No life jackets or swim toys. Do bring your own beach towels. The kitchen is well stocked. There is a small library started in the master closet, a good puzzle collection but few kids or adult games. Hopefully this helps you plan your vacation. We had a great time!
Location is ideal. Home is lovely. Service is lacking.
We had a our first multi-family vacation at this home. The photos of the property are accurate,. the location is ideal for beach lovers, and those who enjoy historic St Augustine. The beds were comfortable, although those indicated as queen seemed more like full size than queen. I would have given this a five star review had it not been for a few things, foremost being the lack of a working fireplace as advertised. While there, the owner sent his maintenance man, who was not able to complete the repair. The VRBO representative we spoke with indicated that the fireplace had not been used in a year... so it would seem that there was not the appropriate property maintenance needed to ensure that what is advertised is in fact available. I requested a $100.00 refund, a reasonable request... I was told someone would get back with me, but I never heard back.
The kitchen was well stocked with pots, and pans, and utensils. The number of towels provided were less than the bare minimum needed for the 14 people staying there. If you will be staying for any length of time, toilet paper, and garbage bags will need to be purchased since there is only one roll per bathroom, and five garbage bags provided.
We also encountered small ants repeatedly in the living room, and kitchen... nothing that encumbered our stay, thank goodness, but worth noting for those whom this might be an issue for. Those on the first floor will hear anyone walking around on the second floor... so light sleepers should stay on the second floor.
We still had a great time together as a family, just wish the service was better...
We stayed at Rising Sun with out daughters and grandchildren and everyone had a wonderful time. House worked great and direct beach access was handy. We had 8.in our group and there was plenty of room.
It was prettier than the pictures. Clean and comfortable. Nothing in the house --bring your own salt and pepper.
