Overview

About the property

Large, 2 Bedroom cottage, on a small, beachfront resort

Kemp's cottage is situated in a quiet, oceanfront retreat on nearly 2 acres of natural, dune property with the pristine beaches of Anastasia Island as the front yard. It is located just south of historic St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. Originally, this was the owners house and they built additional units starting at the back corner of the house which have now been configured into suites. Kemp's Cottage was entirely renovated in 2013 with a new kitchen, washer/dryer, HD TV, 50 mbps wireless internet and more. Note, the fireplace is not operational. Enjoy beautiful white sand beaches with swimming, surfing, fishing, barbecue in a private, natural setting. We also supply beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, fishing gear, small cooler, carts to tote down the beach path and much more.

With only 2 cottages and 3 suites on the entire oceanfront property, it feels like your own, private tropical escape. Pelican Cottage, Kemp's Cottage, Hawksbill Suite, Monarch Suite and Ridley Suite are all listed on VRBO and available for rental starting in June 2013. Choose to view all listings below for more information. The extensive renovations included replacing most of the systems, insulation and soundproofing, new windows, doors, bathrooms and kitchens, providing luxurious accommodations to the perfect St. Augustine, beachfront vacation.

The newly landscaped property includes many tall palms, flowering tropical plants and places to relax. When you follow the path to the beach you'll come across many native plants and will get to know the original residents of the land including the gopher tortoise, the wildlife that their burrows support, the monarch butterflies as they migrate, and many species of birds. Lounge in the courtyard, cool off in the pristine waters of Crescent Beach, surf at one of the best surfing beaches in Florida, visit one of the many great restaurants, or cook in your well-equipped kitchen.

If you need something, ask our helpful onsite staff, call or email, we are there to make sure your time at The Silver Sands is second to none.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Trip Advisor:



My wife and I spent a week in the newly renovated Kemps Cottage - - it was perfect. The pristine beach is a quick walk over the dune line and the many activities of old Saint Augustine are just up the road. Everything from appliances to furniture to tile was new and first rate. We had guests visit virtually every day and all commented on the "Beach Cottage" charm of the cottage. We'll be back!



Room Tip: You can't miss on any of the suites or cottages. It's only a question of size and number of...

Beautiful and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Silver Sands was so much better than a condo or hotel room. The owners are mindful of the guest's needs and also of the indigenous plant life. The property, beach and ocean is beautiful . Thank you and will be back next year.

This is our 3rd time at Silver Sands

  • 5 of 5

We live in Jacksonville FL and have stayed at Silver Sands three times already. As always, we could not have been happier. Beautiful setting, charming, very clean, inviting. Rooms are equipped with anything you can think of that will make your stay more comfortable. Silver Sands even had beach chairs for you to take to the beach and beach toys for kids.

The beach is on the East end of the property. Take your time as you walk toward the beach to watch the turtles along the way.

Had a great stay at Kemps Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and updated. The beach was just down the path and chairs, umbrellas etc were supplied which was very nice. It was quiet and the beach was beautiful. We would definitely come back. The wifi signal wasn't the greatest, which wasn't a big deal for us, but could be an issue for some. We took a quick 15 minute Uber ride into historic St. Augustine a couple times, which was a lot of fun.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Kemps cottage for 1 month in February and March. We loved the cottage, the beach was easily accessed via a short, pretty path. Everything was clean, beds were comfortable. Washer and dryer in the unit was so convenient. I will not stay anywhere else when coming to St. Augustine and will recommend this to everyone.
