About John Lawrence
Friends, I grew up in Summer Haven and after traveling around the globe, I can say from experience that it is one of the most pristine areas I have ever seen...anywhere. I hope you will come and enjoy our little piece of paradise here in the St. Augustine-Summer Haven Community. SERIOUS INQUIRIES can contact: John Lawrence- Owner
John Lawrence purchased this House in 2012
Why John Lawrence chose St Augustine
Located in the heart of Summer Haven, one of the most beautiful and historical areas in Florida. Summer Haven - Matanzas Inlet is a laid back Jimmy Buffett style of living. St. Augustine, the oldest city in America and a easy 10 minute drive. Check the location and don't be fooled by other rentals. The Matanzas Inlet, Beautiful Beach and the Matanzas River are steps away. Come share the Summer Haven experience at "Songbird", you will not regret it.
What makes this House unique
Peaceful, tranquil with some of the best fishing, surfing and sun bathing beaches in Florida. Many interesting attractions nearby for families to enjoy. Swim with the dolphins at Marineland or see the sights in St. Augustine. Visit the Old Spanish Fort at Fort Matanzas(free to the public) 1 mile north on A1A or just relax on the pristine beach across the street from home. Also enjoy some of the best area seaford restaurants in Florida. The home is located within easy driving distance to several major attractions and major events. Come have some fun!

John is the perfect host. He provided everything- including doggie dishes.
The home is a split level with a separate downstairs bedroom and three bedrooms with the main living areas upstairs. It is close to Washington Oaks, Marineland, Matanzas Inlet and a multitude of beaches. We had no problem finding things to do-
My only problem is that the week went by way too fast. ❣️
Greatly enjoyed our stay.
The house is located near a beautiful stretch of the beach a bit south of St. Augustine. It's only a a few blocks from both the ocean beach and beaches on the inner coastal waterway. We had a great time walking on vast open spans of beach observing the birds, the shells and much natural beauty. The house was very comfortable and had all the basic necessities. Our host John, was accessible and responsive. The only drawback to the house is it's right on the A1A highway, so you do hear the traffic which passes by fairly constantly, but after a while it blended in with the beautiful surroundings.
Beautiful Place, very private and clean
The house was perfect for our family, we like to cook and eat at home, we did eat out three times, great food, short drive downtown, we, love all the history.
Nice walk to the beach, was a great beach very quite and peaceful, I loved the sunrises. We've already talked about coming again next year
So glad we choose Songbird
I would stay again
Property has everything a family needs for a great vacation. Excellent location for easy beach access. More than enough space. My family of eight really enjoyed our stay
Great family get away
One of the best family vacations I've been on. The house easily fit my large family with out any issues. It easily slept 9, and the beds where comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need to prepare anything from eggs and grits, to fish tacos, scallops, and seared tuna. The location is perfect if you don't need a view of the beach, love to fish and like it nice and quiet. You literally drive 45 secs to the beach parking which was never full. The beach itself was fantastic. I never saw more than 14 families within a mile and a half of beach in the end of June non the less. I expected it to be packed, but it felt like we were the only ones out there most of the time. You can also, drive a full minute and a half to the other side of the bridge to park and enjoy Matanza's inlet. If you like to paddle board and you get out in the inlet early morning you may have it to yourself. I saw one other person on a Friday morning paddle boarding the inlet. It's a short twenty mi the drive to downtown if you want to catch the sites or eat. There is a fresh seafood market about 3 miles down the road from the house that had a great selection and stocked 4 meals at the house for us. If your looking for a quiet get away with the family and like being outdoors enjoying the ocean this is the house for you.
Great location, private but not far from beaches or shopping.
Clean, lots of space and pretty of amenities. Close to the beaches, residents and stores. The is super nice and easy to get along with. Will most definitely be back to stay again.
Fort Matanzas National Monument and Marineland of Florida, 2 minutes away. Scenic Downtown St. Augustine 10 minutes North on A1A. Daytona International Speedway, 30 minutes. Disney World in Orlando, 90 minutes.
