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 Elkton

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.

Spacious house in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the house and wished we could have utilized the pool and hot tub even more than we did. It was a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of tourist attraction.

Good Times in Spite

  • 4 of 5

Owner and Tina really exercise caring customer service. Tina was very responsive during a power outage. The house is awesome and comfortable.

Cons: The water for the garden tub in the master wouldn't heat. (Showers were fine.)

We found hair in the linens and carpet. (We re-washed the linens we were using - we

were fine.)

The pool kept getting this "residue" in it. (We skimmed it off and determined it was

dust from the top screen. (We were fine.)

Things happen, but we were determined to have fun, and that we did. We loved the house and would definitely recommend it.

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.
