About the Property

House, or Studio (Sleeps 16-20) 3 private rentals under 1 roof all super private

Can't get closer to the ocean. Newly remodeled. Direct oceanfront home with 3 private floors, all with private entrances. Each floor has a full kitchen and full size bathroom. House has an extra large outside deck on beach with built in seating. Private dock & private beach entrances. House is located in St. Augustine on the small island of Summer Haven. Located two miles north of Marineland. We are on a rare (for St. Augustine) no driving part of the beach so no worries about passing cars. Our beach is almost not accessible for public access, without climbing down some steep rocks .25 mile from this property, so this makes it very private for those lucky enough to have access. We are directly on Atlantic Ocean, but you can also see the Matanzas River and the Intracoastal waterway. From the top floor you can see the historical Fort Matanzas. Since we sit on this access, the wildlife is amazing. Sea Turtles, Dolphins, and Manatees go back and forth daily in front of this property in and out of ocean and river. Our area of the Intracoastal sits on 25 miles of undeveloped state owned natural habitat. The water is one of the most unpolluted water areas in the state of Florida which brings fisherman and birders from all over to this sanctuary areas. Our area is very private with no crime and the feeling of safety for those that want to let their kids go free on the beach without worry. No worries about a long walk from your bedroom to the beach, you pretty much are on the beach all the time without touching the sand. Property next to ours is not developed so the property and house has no obstructed views of ocean from any rooms. If you cycle we are a few miles from some of the best mountain biking and miles and miles of paved trails, most totally shaded. This property is called an artist Haven, and The Center of the Universe. A very very rare Florida Beach spot. An Oprah book has been written here and countless pieces of art and song writing has happened on this treasured tree house property. Come relax and enjoy our private beach paradise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We purchased this house not planning to rent but it has such a strong rental history over the last 15-20 years we can't help but share it.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Augustine, FL, USA:
Unique home on a basically almost private non driving beach very private beach space. Every day the beach looks different because of the inlet being so close and watching the tides come in and out every 12 hours. State protected property on north side of inlet across from the property. Matanzas inlet is one of the top 10 beaches in the U.S. 2015 travel Channel.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Gated property -Privacy with a large group you can rent two apartments and have fun with your friends and family and still have your own space.
