Property description

Location, location, location, says it all. You will not find another listing this PRIVATE & QUIET on the ocean. No condo hallways, no strangers or neighbors you can hear. This house has a private walkway to spectacular Crescent Beach. You won't even see another person -- unless you want to! Then hit the beach for a swim or a walk (you can go for miles), there are restaurants and bars within walking distance, but once you're at the house you would never know it.

One of only three private houses on Crescent Beach for rent. This is the truly private getaway!

If you want, jump into the car and the world of zoo's, museums, architecture and history is yours. Dozens of parks and ecological destinations within miles. Rent a bike, board, horse or a kayak and see things from yet another angle-- but then again, it's not easy to leave that deck!
Take time to read the reviews, this house does not disappoint!

Perfect house for the Big Chill week, a family reunion, a girls get away OR a romantic honeymoon or anniversary! This is not a good house for young children in fact children under the age of eight are discouraged entirely-- there are many stairs and decks and walkways that are unsafe for children to play on.

DAY TIME AIR TEMPS:
70's-- Feb-Apr, Nov.
80's-- May-Oct.
WATER TEMP:
70's-- Apr-May, Oct-Nov.

Car: Necessary

Spectacular Crescent Beach is just off your very private deck and out your window. All you hear is the roll of the waves as you sit watching dolphin, whale and pelicans glide by.

Although private, this house is a few minutes walk to a couple of bars and restaurants most of which serve delicious seafood and refreshing drinks while you soak up the low-key beach vibe.

St. Augustine is one of the most beautiful cities in the USA and and the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement and port in the continental United States. Old world charm, beautiful architecture combined with restaurants, museums, shopping and a very comfortable temperature year round equal a vacation paradise.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We bought this home as a retirement property and haven't retired yet!!!! Our loss can be your gain. We have lived in NYC for 35 years and this is the only spot we could imagine giving up our beloved city for.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Augustine, FL, USA:
We love to walk the beach, shelling and fishing along the way. Great food, biking, kayaking and yoga close by to keep us busy. We are 'house people', we like to fiddle and fix and decorate. This house, aside from being on an amazing beach is very private and we have started to bring in our antiques-- making it a bit more elegant than most rental beach houses. We also cook, and this house has a fantastic completely renovated (2016) kitchen to make great meals-- especially for a number of cooks to do their thing all at once. Buy (or catch) the fresh fish and grill it on the deck or in one of two ovens and wash it down with all the wine you can fit into the separate wine fridge-- then walk it out to the deck for a moonlit dinner! Since the house is built into a sand dune and the views are at the top, there are a number of staircases to make all of the areas accessible. For this reason it is not a good house for very young, old or physically handicapped individuals. The house is not childproofed. The deck, walkway and stairs all are open to dangerous drops.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The privacy is really the thing that sets our house apart from ANY other rental on Crescent Beach. You are not dealing with other condo renters, or even visible neighbors, this is one of a kind. The wildlife on our little island is impressive, from the birds that fly along the beach and nest in the spring, to the dolphins and whales that you will see passing by or the turtles that nest on the beach and live in the dunes, its like living in a ecological park. If you get tired of watching from the house, the area is covered with many equally animal full parks and beaches. The Intracoastal waterway is just behind us and that has a completely different vibe-- rent a kayak and check it out when you get sick of surfing, fishing and shelling on the beach.
