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 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.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

25th Anniversary week, we had a great time here. Hawksbill was well equipped and the layout was perfect! Had a washer & dryer so we didn't have laundry to do when we got home. The grounds were well maintained,, just a short walk to a almost private beach and the Atlantic is amazing. The scattered showers allowed us to binge watch a few Netflix shows we hadn't got a chance to watch too. We will come back again, thank you for having us!

Quiet, relaxing, low key vacation! Yay!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to the Silver Sands and found a lovely, simple, quiet little group of beach suites and cottages, surrounded by lush tropical greenery. The Hawksbill Suite was roomy and had everything we needed, right down to beach towels. We enjoyed our "nature walks" down to the beach and were very pleased to have beach chairs and umbrellas provided. (Boogie boards and sand toys were tempting also, but alas, we decided against using those...) Betty and Dana were more than helpful and made us feel very welcomed. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation. We are looking forward to another stay at The Silver Sands on Crescent Beach.

Quiet, clean, restful place - very close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Didn't meet new owners, everything is in good shape (not so much last visit), staff is amazing - but we got evicted...

- by Hurricane Irma. 🌀�🌬�🌧�

This is a place you will return to - again & again...

(One note - if you go out for snacks, dinner, etc. I will guarantee you - you are gonna miss the turn) 😎�

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us and glad you enjoyed your stay! I know your last visit before this one was long before we purchased the property and we totally rebuilt the suites and cottages from the block walls in. Hurricane Irma did interrupt a few guests stays and we were happy to make up for the lost night the following weekend. We needed to give our managers a chance to button up the Silver Sands and their own houses prior to Hurricane Irma's arrival. Hope to see you back at the Silver Sands!

Clean. Great staff. Limited kitchen. Beautiful walk to beach. Ample towels/gear.

  • 4 of 5

Exactly as pictured and described in other reviews. There are only 2 small reasons I did not give 5 stars:

1. I knew going in there was no oven or dishwasher. That meant limited cooking options and possible sanitary issues with dishes (since everything hand washed). The surprises - the stove top eyes were small and close - so cooking with two pots was nearly impossible; several of the utensils were dirty with grease or food on them. A little handsanitizer and pre-wash took care of it.

2. The air conditioner remote didn't seem to work in both units the first day ... however the second day I must have hit something right because both AC units worked great then. Clarification of directions (such as how to use one remote for both units) would help.

These are minor issues for all of the pluses.

Stay here...

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us and we love that you recommend Hawksbill Suite and you appreciated all the pluses! Kemp's Cottage, Pelican Cottage and Ridley Suite have full kitchens with dishwashers for those looking to do more cooking. We check and double check each room before our guests come, anytime you have any question or issue, come right to Betty or Dana and they will take care of it with apologies in hand! Sincerely, Elena Family Representative The Silver Sands St. Augustine

Properties are always clean and decorated so beautiful. Noticed some new landscaping and a beautiful ocean mural in tile on the side of one building. Great time was enjoyed by all!!

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.
