6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 12
Make your next vacation a truly luxurious one: Stay at Wave Watch, overlooking St. Augustine’s Summer Haven Beach. This 5,000-square-foot hacienda-style house has six—yes, six!—bedrooms, breathtaking 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, a huge rooftop deck, and even its own private pool and hot tub. And that’s only the beginning of the amenities.
Let’s work our way up from the ground floor, with its huge game room complete with ping-pong table, bumper pool, large HDTV with Xbox, tabletop shuffleboard, poker table… just about everything you could need for a rainy day. Also on this floor are a bedroom with a queen-size bed and a full bath. What’s more, the two sofas can convert into twin-size beds, making this space sleepover central for the kids.
The spiral stone staircase takes you up to the second floor, the main living area of Wave Watch. Large windows punctuate every wall, allowing you to savor brilliant sunrises and dramatic sunsets, gaze up at the stars, and watch for dolphins and whales from the comfort of the myriad plump sofas and plush chairs.
Even if you have a full house—and don’t forget, Wave Watch can sleep up to 12 people!—you’ll never feel cramped. The living room alone has several seating areas so that one group can watch TV, another can play cards at a table, and several people can curl up with a book or surf the web in front of the gas fireplace. There’s also a powder room on this floor, for maximum convenience.
The dining table can seat 10 people comfortably, and the adjacent kitchen island has room for four more. French doors lead to an oceanfront balcony, should you want to dine outdoors amid the salt-tinged sea breeze. Just a few steps beyond this veranda is a private pool and hot tub, which is heated from April to October. You’ll be able to enjoy a midnight soak or a sunrise swim literally outside your front door! And if you’re staying with little ones, they’ll enjoy the pack-and-play.
After you work up an appetite from swimming, head back indoors to the expansive kitchen, also on the second floor. The open layout means you can cook or clean up without missing out on the dinner-table conversation, whatever’s playing on the TV, or the stunning views. And because the kitchen is fully equipped with major and minor appliances, as well as cookware, utensils, and tableware, you don’t have to cart any of those items from home.
Likewise, Wave Watch comes with fresh towels, linens, and other bedding. Each of the five bedrooms on the third floor has ocean views, an HDTV, and ample storage. While all the bedrooms will encourage sweet dreams, the master suite is exceptional: Not only does it have a king-size bed and its own seating area, but the master bath has both a jetted tub and a walk-in shower.
Take the spiral staircase up one more flight, and you’ll arrive at the 1,500-square-foot rooftop deck. Its unobstructed panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Florida coast are, in a word, spectacular. And when you stay at Wave Watch, you can relish them any time of day or night.
Given the glories of Wave Watch, you might be tempted to spend your entire stay without leaving the house. But while there’s certainly enough here to keep you occupied, you’d be missing out on so much more.
For instance, Summer Haven Beach is just a few blocks away. Erosion from Tropical Storm Faye has led to boulders blocking the access points directly in front of Wave Watch, but there’s easy access just two blocks away (or you can do what the locals do and walk between the boulders!).
A mile away is Fort Matanzas Park, home to a leafy boardwalk nature trail and the 270-year-old namesake fort. Marineland, the St. Augustine Alligator Farm (complete with zip line!), and the historic streets of St. Augustine are minutes away by car. Even the theme parks of Orlando are less than two hours away.
Note: Per the owners and per the neighbors in this area, there are NO events or weddings allowed at this property. This will be strictly monitored and enforced.

Our stay was wonderful. The house is amazing and there was plenty of room for my husband and myself and our children and grandchildren. I loved sitting on the porch and watching the ocean waves. Very soothing.
The one negative that I experienced was that the pool was not heated. I was told when I rented the house in May, 2017, by your representative that the pool was heated beginning on March 1st. I understand that it is the owner's decision when to turn on the pool heater, I feel that it needs to be specified very clearly to all who rent that house. I felt bad that I told my kids that the pool was heated and it was not.
Hi Judy! Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay. We truly apologize for the misunderstanding in regards to the pool and we realize how frustrating this can be. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention so that we can ensure this information is made more clear for future guest stays. Despite the misinformation, we would like to thank you for the excellent 5-star review and we hope to have you stay with us again in the near future.
Perfect Vacation Spot
We had a fabulous time. A week away from our busy work schedules. The beach was cold and blustery but still enjoyable everyday. We spent time in St Augustine, one of our favorite places to be. The house of course, was perfect for us. We enjoyed every minute we were there, even the rainy days. Thank you. We are considering coming back again next year.
It's a definite WOW !!!!!
Incredible property.......literally across the street from ocean, well appointed, spacious beyond your wildest dreams, if you had any stress when you arrived, it surely left by the end of your vacation stay. Hard to imagine ever staying in a more beautiful property.
Thank you for your feedback! We are glad that it was beyond satisfactory for you and your guests. We aim to "wow" our guests with an amazing vacationing rental experience and we are ecstatic that you approved. Do not hesitate to come back and visit us again soon.
It was a beautiful house but definitely not for older people, it has a lot of stairs. The house was clean but they need to wash the comforters on all the beds there was a few on them very nasty. There was some rats that was eating our food. when we arrived there was some signs of a rat being on the bed downstairs. Had to clean the water reservoir on the Keurig it had not been cleaned. We had a hard time getting the spa to come on. We tried to use it everyday but only got it to come on 3 days. The house is across the street from the beach but you still have a very nice view. It's very hard to to get to the beach from the house. I Wouldn't rent it again because it was to hard to get down to the beach the signs of rats on the bed and the comforters was nasty.
Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay. We apologize for any inconveniences that you may have endured. Our housekeeping team works diligently to ensure the cleanliness of the property to meet guests’ comfortability. If something was overlooked, we are sorry as that is not the cleaning standards that we uphold. We urge our guests, if there are any issues, to contact our office immediately.

Hopefully you were still able to enjoy some of your time on the beach while you were here.

Best Family Vacation
We came with our 6 kids and significant others. Everyone had a terrific time. Kids ages ranged from 17 to 29. They all loved the large game room and rooftop was phenomenal. The house is updated, clean, huge and has everything you could need down to beach/pool toys, coolers, Plenty of dishes, silverware and appliances. It even had 2 crockpots for dinner one night. Local beach access via short walk and beautiful beaches north or south within 2 miles. Absolutely nothing negative to say. Hated to leave.
