About the property

Large, 1 Bedroom suite, in a small resort, tropical, beachfront setting

Hawksbill Suite is situated in a quiet, oceanfront retreat on nearly 2 acres of natural, dune property with the pristine beaches of Anastasia Island. A perfect place for the person that enjoys walks through a natural environment, the beach, swimming and all the area has to offer. It is located just south of historic St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. A large suite with kitchenette, washer/dryer, HD TV, 50 mbps wireless internet, new queen sleeper sofa and more. Enjoy beautiful white sand beaches with swimming, surfing, fishing, barbecue in a private, natural setting. We also supply beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, scuba masks for the kids, 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. 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

My wife, our two dogs, and I stayed in the Pelican Cottage. Except for a minor issue with the toilet tending to run, the cottage was very comfortable. There was a nice seating area just outside the cottage. The walkway to the beach was new or near new. Several gopher tortoises live on the property and wander around when the temperature is high enough. There were numerous sea turtle nests on the beach. The beach itself was good.

Paradise found...

  • 5 of 5

From the gorgeous decor in our suite to the breathtaking view of the ocean, The Silver Sands is a little piece of heaven right here on Earth. My only disappointment was not being able to stay longer! Days spent lounging in the sun followed by peaceful nights in a place where you have all the comforts of home, what's not to love? I will definitely return to this quaint paradise as soon as I possibly can.

Quiet retreat with beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely stay here again! Small but very private, well stocked inside and out with all the beach equipment. Dana is super nice, very welcoming and helpful! Loved the tortoises and bunnies!! Beach is a short walk away through a nature path then large private-feeling beach. St Augustine has so much to do! It’s about 30 minutes away but we didn’t mind the drive for the rewards of this retreat!

It was perfect for all our needs

This property was great and it was like having our own private beach. Our room was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. We will be staying her again.

Beautiful, clean, quiet and private.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The room was like a small apartment and was designed very nicely. The short walk to the beach through the forest tunnel and then out to a path in the sunshine approaching stairs down to the beach was cool. The management was very friendly and maintained the amenities, like water, daily. We will be back!

Love Silver Sands and the secluded beach. It's our fourth time visiting and won't be our last.

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time at Silver Sands but our first stay in the Hawksbill. The place was outstanding and the staff is always so friendly and helpful. The staff went out of their way to make sure that all our needs were met.

We enjoy the family atmosphere and secluded beach that Silver Sands has to offer. The short walk to the beach always seems to surprise us with the local wildlife. Turtles, rabbits, birds, and snakes are usually there for viewing. Silver Sands also had every beach item that we needed. They provided us with chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and beach toys. Overall, this is a first class place. We will definitely be back!

The property is beach front and from the suites and cottages, there is a nature path thought the woods, over the ancient dune to the new beach walk over the last dune. Along the path you see wild flowers, wildlife, tortoises and palms.
