About the property

1920s Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy a piece of Vilano Beach (St Augustine) and 'old world Florida' in this charming bungalow that captures the essence of beach life. Relax or read a book on the front porch or grill up your favorite meal on the private, back deck with ocean breezes.

This house dates back to 1929 and has been totally renovated with all the modern conveniences. Excellent layout for entertaining with a large living area, spacious kitchen, and large deck with built in benches, grill, table and umbrella. Original, hand scraped, wood ceilings, walls and floors welcome visitors and make this home unique to all others.

Location is great! Surfside is on a quiet, family oriented street directly across from the beach. Publix grocery, bars and restaurants are just minutes away. Just across the bridge is historic St. Augustine. You can walk (3 miles), bike, drive or taxi to get to the heart of historic St Augustine. Ponte Vedra and the World Golf Village are just a short drive away for world class golfing.

Weekly guest memberships are available at The Serenata Beach Club. The club features oceanside dining, adult & family pools, hot tub, gym, and more. Weekly passes are $260 for a group up to 6.

Come visit Surfside and discover the relaxing, beach lifestyle of Northeast Florida.

Why K McCarty chose Florida North East

Nestled in a quiet, family friendly neighborhood, it is the perfect get away from the hussle-bussle of every day life. Across the street from a shell-finder's dream; Surfside Beach park offers, swimming, fishing, a pavilion restrooms, and showers. Drinking my morning coffee while watching the sunrise over the Atlantic is hard to beat. Conveniences are a few blocks away, and walking the beach as a to/or from the grocery store is always better than the usual. Excellent waterfront restaurants and fun bars are a walk/bike/or car ride away. St. Augustine is "just over the bridge," but feels worlds away at this quiet home.

What makes this house unique

I love this home! Pictures don't do it justice - The moment you walk in, the original hand hewn timber ceiling will wow you. The lovely southern bead board and heart of pine floors make you feel like you're in another era. The ocean waves are a wonderful sound year round. The separate master bedroom in the back of the house is perfect for a couple who wants a little privacy. The open concept kitchen opens to the private back deck - perfect for grilling . Not only is it in a family friendly neighborhood, it is close to all conveniences too (gas, groceries, food delivery, etc) I love reading a book on the front porch, during a summer storm. The property also features a long driveway for off street parking.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The pictures don't do this home justice - it is so beautiful and comfortable, our family loved it. The floor plan is perfect for entertaining and the proximity to the beach was great. Our son enjoyed looking for shells and we loved the relaxation. Nearby restaurants were fun and family friendly. This is our new favorite spot!

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Surfside Cottage! Great location. Well kept, clean as a whistle upon our arrival. Amply supplied and stocked. Charming curb appeal and nicely decorated. Jodi (owner) and Kira (manager) very responsive to my communications and extremely helpful. My biggest problem is trying to figure out how quickly I can get back there!!

Excellent house, loved the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The Surfside Bungalow was the best part of our vacation. Our kids loved heading to the beach early and my wife enjoyed the quiet deck off the kitchen for relaxing. The whole family enjoyed the nearby waterfront bar/restaurant called, 'Beaches' - The kids could play in the sand while my wife and I enjoyed an adult beverage, sunset, and live music. This will be our go-to vacation home from now on. Thanks again!

We loved the house.

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we hoped for. The closeness to the beach was great, just had to cross the road. The washing machine was slow but overall everything was great. Not sure about it sleeping 8 people. ^ was very comfortable. The grocery store was just blocks away. Had to drive to it but that was fine.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of my favorite vacation rentals! I just love the feel of this home. Especially the new renovations in the back bedroom and bathroom and of course the amazing ceiling in the living room. Right across the street from Vilano Beach. Easy biking to local restaurants. Love the back deck patio for bbq's too. What more can I say?

Gorgeous house and beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so pretty inside and out. The floor plan was amazing for entertaining. The front and back bedrooms gave each couple privacy while vacationing together. The beach is a stone's throw and had beautiful shells, sunrises and we loved watching the shrimp boats go out to sea. We will definitely be back!

Excellent Family Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation at Surfside. One of the best vacations we have ever had!!

Surfside is a charming home with plenty of space for everyone. We especially enjoyed grilling on the deck, and walking to the beach to watch the sunset. The home was extremely clean, and provided beach chairs, umbrella and towels for everyone. We also enjoyed St Augustine which is just a short drive from the house. Plenty of restaurants and shops for all ages to enjoy.

We will definitely be back!
