Panoramic ocean views, dunes filled with wildlife, four 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 three. 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!
