Your owners, Steve and Nikki lovingly restored this Historic Home in 2011 and it's been on the weekly rental market since only April 2012.

Dive into the sea, walk on the beach, or just sit on the porch. Relax and watch TV while looking at the ocean through the expansive glass windows. In the evenings, enjoy Salty C's library, games or just stargaze and dream.

We have preserved the casual cozy feeling of our Historic beach house while still giving you the convenience your deserve. There are modern HD flat screen TV's in every living room along with Blu-ray and DVD players for your convenience. Downstairs living room TV is ready for your gamer to simply hook in and go.

We have a huge amount of private parking, so bring your Jet Ski's and we are located away from busy A1A. The beach is wide, flat and sandy - no cliffs or rocks like some north and south of us.

Walk to dinner! There are at least 4 restaurants within one block. Shops are also within walking distance. For those who need some pampering, there is a spa within a couple of blocks. The Surf Shop is a few blocks away and they rents surfboards and gives lessons, or if you like, stop in and take a Segway tour on the beach. All just a stroll away.The oldest and most romantic town of St Augustine is 10 minutes drive away. There is also a shuttle that takes you back and forth. Be prepared to feel like you have stepped back in time to a town somewhere in Spain. You can even take a carriage ride!

We want Salty C Cottage to become your beach home that you return to as a yearly tradition. A place where you have many great memories of carefree times with family and friends. To ensure that, we have one very important rule: When you step onto our driveway, please leave your troubles behind - relax and enjoy.

Why Steve & Nikki Layt chose Florida North East

We fell in love with St Augustine Beach while on vacation in 2010. We decided that we would love to spend many more vacations here so we found this perfect home to share with our friends and family

Guestbook comments from the manager

We know great beaches!



This is certainly one of them. The house was amazing, so many places to hide yet plenty of room to get together. It went by way too fast.

Owner's Response: Thanks you so much for your kind words about our beach house, Salty C. This is one of the things we try so hard to do, to make a home away from home with a relaxed cottage feel for everyone. We are so happy to hear that everyone had a wonderful time while vacationing at St Augustine Beach. We look forward to seeing you again soon at Salty C.

Amazing Home PERFECT for Large Families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fluctuating group of 10-18 ladies ranging in age from 12-75 from all over the country. The home was PERFECT for our needs. It allowed us to spread out when we needed space from each other (C'mon, 18 women aren't going to get along 100% of the time) and still be together as a family for meals and socializing. The easy access to the beach meant we were coming and going all day. Spectacular sunrises were enjoyed from the balcony as well as the beach. The home was stocked well with linens and kitchen items. We prepared several meals and lots of sweets (all women, remember?) in the kitchen. Having laundry facilities on site was a definite plus. We loved how centrally located the home was to all of the attractions we wanted to enjoy. We have family in Pulaski and it was a very easy car ride to get to their home as well. The only complaint that was voiced was that we wished the lower level kitchen had a full sized fridge rather than the mini fridge. We had to keep the main food items upstairs and stocked the mini fridge with beverages only. Other than that small detail, our stay was perfect! I would recommend this home to anyone planning a trip for a large family.

Excellent stay and wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

The Salty C was the perfect location for our multi-family friends' reunion. Our group consisted of 10 adults and 8 children (6 and under) and we had a difficult time finding properties adjacent to the beach that would accommodate such a large group. I am happy to say that we found the perfect place!

Everything about the house fit our needs, from the bunk rooms for the little ones, to the multiple common areas and ready-to-use electronics with Wifi. There were multiple places to eat just a short walk away and the supermarket was only a short drive away.

The house is beach front, so we spent many hours daily enjoying the beautiful expansive beach with the little ones. Historic St Augustine is only a few minutes' drive away and the downtown was amazing. We also had the opportunity to enjoy the city's 450th anniversary and the city was vibrant in celebration.

We made great memories during our stay and would recommend this property to anyone with a large group or for a large family. I is the perfect location for a fun-filled (or relaxing) family reunion.

Thank you for letting us share the Salty C and we would love to return in the future.

An ideal location for the perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

This beach-front cottage was the perfect place for my family to come together after a tragic loss and find healing. It is such a beautiful, serene location with access to anything you want to do. We chose to spend most of our time at the beach or whipping up family dinners followed by games in the cottage, but with St. Augustine just a few minutes down the road, our options were vast. The recommended bike and beach chair rental place was perfect! We enjoyed many bike rides along the beach, or up the road for ice cream, and the beach chairs were the perfect way to relax on the beach. The cottage itself couldn't have been more perfect! Waking up to the sun rising over the ocean was such a reminder that no matter what life throws our way, there is always the promise of a new day! Thank you Steve and Nikki for providing the perfect escape for me and my family!

St Augustine is such a lovely place to spend quality time with friends and family and it sounds like you had a wonderful week. #Staystrong

the perfect economical beach home for large groups

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful 1920's beach front home was the perfect getaway/location for a large group. Actual beds for 18, and a pull out couch for 2 more. Much of the home appears to be original, and the decorations are simple. But..who cares! When you rent a beach home its definitely not because you will be staying inside. The set up of the bed rooms and ba th rooms are like a maze...need to go through bedrooms to get to the bathrooms. Although, we had 5 unrelated families staying with us....no one was bother about walking into their rooms to use the restroom. Actually, it was quite fun! The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything one would needed..if for some reason you were crazy enough to cook on vacation. Speaking of food..walking distance to many wonderful restaurants. Our favorite was The Salt Life! Everynight we ate at a different restaurant, all were wonderful. A surf shop and Ice cream shop two blocks down. Rental of surf board was only $18 for half day. This brought a ton of fun for all of us..young and old. The beach is amazing. It's miles long filled with great people. Only concern with the beach is that it is an alcohol free beach..so you need to be creative if you want to drink a beer on the beach. I suggest using a tea container...tea/beer...can't tell the difference. . We saw many people getting tickets for openly drinking on the beach. Many people in our group found sharks teeth, star fish and many wonderful shells. It truly is the ultimate location. Contact with the owners was quick, easy and pleasant.

Owner's Response: Sounds like you all had an amazing week at Salty C. We LOVE to eat at Salt Life too. Such yummy food. Never tried the surf board rentals but I will on my next visit. We are very glad you found so many fun things on the beach. Our kiddos are always looking for sharks teeth. Thanks again for visiting St Augustine and Salty C!
