About Rurik Vatnarsson

We the owners are a couple with four children. We play golf and tennis, bicycling and other outdoor activities. We travel to St. Augustine a few times each year.

Rurik Vatnarsson purchased this house in 2006

Why Rurik Vatnarsson chose Florida

We fell in love with St. Augustine and the surrounding area in 2005, after having studied and travelled there, the spacious beaches, the intracoastal and golf courses. Downtown St. Augustine is truly worth visiting and gives this area a character of its own.

What makes this house unique

The location is great right by the golf course and close to the club house. Good view out back to the golf course and we built the patio ourselves to make it spacious for the pool, jacuzi, table, chairs, sofa and lounges.

Great St. Augustine vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this home for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. The home had everything we needed. The home has been updated with new carpet in the bedrooms, and has newer furniture in the living room. St Augustine was a short drive away, as were the many beaches. We loved the double door handle going to the pool area keeping the kids from going out without us. The only thing that I would suggest doing, would be adding satellite TV to the other bedrooms. Great Vacation. We would love to rent again when we visit the area.

Great Home for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The pool, hot tub, and covered lanai were amazing. My kids loved the swimming. The home is spacious. The master bedroom is big and comfortable. The pool area was clean and the grill was brand new. There are golf clubs in the garage and pool toys. We loved it and would stay here again.

North Ga Janie and Tim AWESOME HOME!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and we had the pleasure of renting this home. It was spectacular and was even better than described! I think the kitchen had as much stuff to cook with as mine at home. Everything in this home is high end all the way down to the bedding. We will be returning next year! The owners/Tina were awesome! I cannot say enough good things about the house and the owners. If you are looking for a home away from home then this is the place! Grandkids loved the pool and hot tub! Everything upscale and immaculate! Thank you Rurik! We had an awesome family vacation.

Beautiful St Augustine - Family From Alberta, Canada

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our vacation. We stayed for 12 days and had a wonderful time. It was our first time staying in this part of Florida and we loved it! Although we did not spend a lot of time inside, the house was spacious, clean and well maintained. If we had any questions Tina was always available and if I noticed anything with the house (main bath not draining well), I emailed the owners and they responded immediately. The pool and patio were the highlight of the house for our children. They practically lived in the pool. The house sits on the 17th hole of a beautiful golf course and there are a lot of things to do for people of all ages in St Augustine.

The only thing that we did not realize was how long of a drive it is from St Augustine to Orlando. We had a few activities planned in orlando and the 2hr drive there and and another 2hrs back makes for a long day.

I was also leery about paying for this home via paypal - as I always go through the website, but it went smoothly.

I just ensured that I had a rental agreement before sending any money.

St Augustine Winter Get Away

  • 3 of 5

My two grown sons and I rented this house in February 2015 for a golfing and sight seeing vacation. Below are the pro and cons for this property.


Great location

• Right on a nice golf course with reasonable greens fees

• Easy to access from the interstate

• Short trip to St Augustine which is very historic and fun to visit

Nice and quiet neighborhood

Had all the necessities including a washer and dryer

Nice master bed and bath and two other nice size bedrooms

Nice covered outdoor space with pool (not heated in February)


Carpet needs to be cleaned or replaced

Hot tub is old, one pump was broken and it would not heat up (unusable)

Furniture in living room is falling apart and needs to be replaced

If the owner put some of the rental income back into the property, this would be a nice vacation home. I have rented several homes through VRBO and have always been extremely satisfied, but in this case I would not recommend this property until the owner fixes the issues.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately the motor for the hot tub stopped working during the stay of these guests, and a new one had to be ordered, shipped from another state and installed, however the guests had left by then after their one week stay. I agree that it is about time to change the carpet especially in the living room, and it will be replaced no later than August 2015 during our next trip to Florida, we want to select it carefully. We stayed at the house in late February 2015, and did a lot of painting on the inside and the pool area floor was painted so it is looking really good. We painted the outside of the house in October 2014. The remark about the furniture in the living room as being "falling apart" I just do not understand. The furniture is looking pretty good and some of it looks as new! However we will gradually buy new furniture. We are constantly buying new things for the home and upgrading it and that goes for the furniture as everything else. On our last trip in February we also updated small things like the kitchen faucet, new garbage disposal, a few things for the kitchen etc., and a new grill for the outside area. These are things that constantly need attention. I hope that these guest have an opportunity to visit at some later time as they were so unfortunate with the hot tub breaking down during their stay. Then they also will get the chance to walk on the new carpet!
