Seaside Cottage 2 - Your own private Oceanfront Cottage with great Ocean Views from your 2nd Story Open Greatroom/Kitchen/Dining and Balcony.
Complete with 2 Private Bedroom Suites downstairs each with their own bath (1 King & 1 Queen) + a Twin Daybed and Queen Sleeper Sofa in the Greatroom with Full bath so you can comfortably sleep 7.
Located just 5 miles from Historic Downtown St Augustine on the 'Best Section' of beach. Loads of activities within walking distance. No long catwalks. No Cars allowed. Just powder white sand steps from your door. Totally renovated in 2012 with 'Top-of-the-Line' finishes like it just came out of Coastal Living. Total of 4 Cottages ranging from 1 to 5 Bedrooms if you have other friends or family who would like to come along. It does not get any better than this!
My goal was to create the ultimate Vacation experience for small to large groups. All are renovated in the same Coastal Style. Crisp White Linens. Bead board walls. Soft beach colors. I want you to tell your friends, This is your favorite place to stay (and bring them with you next year). Please call any time day or night at 9044653852 or see Lindasbeach. It starts with the second story Greatroom with spectacular ocean views ...
Ocean View Greatroom. To recreate the feel of a true beach house we wanted real 'Heart of Pine' floors. Here you cannot go new. You have to go old. They don’t sell the good stuff anymore. We found a mill in Georgia and had the floors made for us out of 100 yr old timbers from a building out of Nashville, TN (only 50 miles from where I grew up in Shelbyville, Walking Horse Capital of the World).
Then we added a huge side picture window to enhance the view and two sets of French Doors opening out to a Covered Oceanfront Balcony with amazing Ocean Views, Breezes and Sounds. The Balcony runs the entire front of the Cottage and has uninterrupted views over the smaller one-story Cottages. In St Augustine you really must be on the second floor to have the true Ocean View and this Cottage sure has it.
For your entertainment we added a wall mounted Big Screen TV with Comcast and Wireless Internet. Even a Streaming Video box for You Tube and Netflix (if you have an account). You can even view the family photos together on the big screen or share hours of fun playing games on the large Dining Table. We provide several, but I recommend Rummikub. It is our family favorite and can be played from 5 to 96. It is a game where you actually have to think and I hope it will become a tradition in your family too and make you think or your stay in St Augustine.
There a are 2 Bedrooms downstairs with private baths but if you need more space the Greatroom leather sofa folds out into a Queen Sleeper with access to a Full Bath by the Kitchen. We've also added a Twin Daybed for extra seating/sleeping.
Gourmet Kitchen. We had the kitchen custom made. Lots of glass doors so you could find things, even bead board inside to give it that “Beachy” look. And “white granite” counters. It is in all the magazines, so I had to have it, but can't tell you how hard it was to find. The stainless appliances feature the new French door refrigerator, a convection Smooth Top Stove with 2 ovens so you can cook 'two things at once' & the quietest dishwasher I have ever heard. It is fully equipped with Pottery Barn dishes and glasses and all the pot, pans and utensils you'll need to create a gourmet meal. You will enjoy cooking so much and you may save enough money to stay another night! We hope so.
Two Bedrooms with Private Baths. The Bedrooms are both downstairs. Here we used a cool, soft grey marble. The most beautiful stone I've ever seen. There is one King Bedroom and 1 Queen. I had both Headboards custom built with Reading Sconces on each side for those who love reading in bed. Plus have 42” wall mounted TVs and wireless internet.
Private Baths. Both bedrooms have new, private bathrooms. One with a large 6’ shower and 2 shower heads. The other with dramatically lit Garden Tub and separate “Rain-head” Shower.
Outside. In back is a huge paver patio with BBQ, dining table and chairs. It is a combo grill for both gas or charcoal since we did not know which you would prefer. Also, an outdoor shower with hot and cold water when returning from the beach. Chairs and Boogie Boards provided as well as both Bath and Beach towels.
Interior washer/dryer. Parking for 2 cars.
Remember, if you need more space, or less, there are 4 Cottages in all:

Now to the Beach and why I call it the 'Best Beach'. You need to do your research here. There is a tremendous difference in the beaches and only 18 streets of what most people agree is the Best section of Beach where we are located all north of A Street. Why? I have 5 reasons...
BEST BEACH. There are 4 distinct Beaches in St Augustine. Be sure and find out “where” your beach house is located before you book.
First is the SAND. The sand is like powder, not coarse ground up shells like Vilano to the north. This is the white powder you are looking for. Great for drip castles!
Second, at OCEAN IS RIGHT AT YOUR DOOR STEP. There is no long raised boardwalk like further south along Atlantic View with a 5 minute walk across the dunes to navigate with the cooler & chairs before you ever get to the water. Here the ocean and the VIEW is steps from your door. Be careful. There are some “beachfront” homes that are so “far from the beach” because of the sand dunes that you can hardly “see” the ocean.
Third, there are NO CARS. This is a major distinction. Everything south of A Street has Cars. Imagine trying to play paddle ball or throwing football with cars continually passing by & having to be on constant baby alert. Not while you are on vacation!
Fourth, the beach is WIDE with GREAT WAVES - Some beaches in Vilano to the north are narrow & steep, some even with rocks. The slope of the beach affects the waves. They break so close in you can't boogie board. The locals consider this the BEST SURFING around. There's a friendly Surf shop with lessons & rentals right down the street on 1st Lane if you have some adventurous ones. The rest will have plenty of fun with the boogie boards provided by Seaside Cottages free of charge.
Last, the beach is within WALKING DISTANCE of loads of activities and restaurants. Many beaches both north and south are so isolated you have a long drive to get to anything. Not here. It is so nice to be able to walk over to a restaurant for breakfast or send the kids out for Ice Cream Cones or pizza. There is a park nearby with Tennis and a YMCA for swimming or workout. Plus the City put in a kids Splash Park plus Beach Volleyball courts at the Fishing Pier, even a Farmers Market on Wednesday and Free Live Music Concerts every Wednesday night in the Summer. How wonderful is that?
So…… Please call if I can answer any questions day or night or visit my website with photos of every room and check out my You Tube Video. You can google me if the phone number does not show up.
I hope you will enjoy your stay and come to think of this as YOUR Home at the Beach.?
