About Gary

Nena and I bought this home as a get away for us. This is a quiet beach area, like old Florida. We enjoy the beach, off road, and road biking as well as the ocean and paddle boarding.

We live nearby, just west of St Augustine, in the country and we wanted a beach home without the crowds of St Augustine.

St Augustine is just a scenic 25 minute drive from the beach house - great for sight seeing, then escape back to quiet paradise.

Gary purchased this house in 2013

Why Gary chose Florida North East

This area south of Marineland is quiet, relaxing, and natural. The home is surrounded by natural parks with great walking trails and of course the beach!

The views from our balcony allow uninterrupted views of the ocean - no houses between us and the ocean. We have a wonderful natural park between us and the ocean allowing us to set back about 150 yards from the beach.

We have a Publix just a couple miles south on A1A and there are numerous fun restaurants and bars in the area. Flagler Beach is a 15 minute drive south and is a quaint coastal beach town. Further south another 20 minutes, is Daytona Beach. North of us on coastal A1A is beautiful St Augustine - about a 25 minute drive along the beach and ocean.

So, we are close to fun stuff, yet uncrowded and quiet in our neighborhood.

At the corner of Malacompra and A1A is the Malacopra off road bike trail that offers excellent off road biking, with jumps, bridges, and other challenges on a course worthy of competitions.There is a bike shop at the corner that rents out bikes as well.

Stop into the Hip Cafe next door after a bike ride. Across the street is Bings Landing with a boat ramp to the Intracoastal. There is also a park and dock/pier and Captain's Barbecue restaurant.

What makes this house unique

We have no neighbors in front or behind our home. Our road is a quiet sandy road that leads to the beach. The walking and biking trails, as well as cute nearby stores and cafes, make this a truly unique area.A nearby boat ramp 2.5 miles away allows easy access to the Intracoastal waterway and great fishing without crowds. We often see Gopher tortoises walking down our road.

Washington Oaks State Park and Marineland are nearby and offer more Florida attractions. Coquina rock formations abound north of us on the beach.

The Malacompra off-road bicycle trail is an easy bike ride nearby. Take our beach bikes for a ride around it. Also, we have the old Coast Guard trail from WWII, an easy walk from the home that also leads to nice walking trails in the area. There is a cute cafe at the end of Malacompra for pizza and more.

Bings Landing at the end of Malacompra, has a boat ramp and a wonderful dock for viewing or fishing.

Marineland north of us has great dolphin exhibits and eco tourist attractions including a super kayaking area - take our kayaks :)

Matanzas Inlet offers bridge fishing, super beaches, and a nice area for swimming and paddle boarding - yes we have a paddle board.

There is a ton of family fun stuff within a short walk, bike ride, or car ride from the house.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

We were there for 9 days with 4 couples, the house has everything one can dream of. Perfectly clean, we did not miss anything, incredible view of the ocean from each of the gigantic decks, having the canoes and also the four bikes was really enjoyable. Would definitely go back there any time. We wish we could give it six stars. Owner was truly caring and helpful.

Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed staying in this house so much. We could spread out all over the house and have our own privacy or gather together and still have plenty of room. It was great for our dogs because once the gate was closed, the whole yard was enclosed for them to run around in. The owners thought of everything......all you really need to do is pack your clothes. If I had a negative, it would be that it was not beachfront. We could see the ocean and the fact that you could drive to it made it worthwhile. The bikes were used every day to ride to the beach too. The beach was like having your own private beach. Just loved it! And to top it off, there is a takeout pizza place at the end of the street that is just fabulous. And a very good BBQ place right across the street from it.

Picture perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We have a large family and this place was perfect. Enough room for everyone to have their space when needed. Just a short walk to the beach and they had everything we could think of and more to enjoy at the beach. Beautiful views from the magnificent porches on both the second and third level, such a beautiful home! Thank you Gary and Nena for allowing us to stay in your home. Thank you for allowing us to bring our pets into your home. They thoroughly enjoyed vacation as much as we did. You guys provided everything we could think of to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Looking forward to planning our next visit!

Beautiful home and fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

The views at this beach house were fabulous!! Natural vegetation is all that stands between the house and the beach. This home has lots of living and relaxing space, and all spaces are furnished beautifully and with comfort in mind. There are quite a few stairs, but we didn't mind at all.

This was our second year renting from Gary and Nena; they are the best hosts! Thank you both for sharing your home with us!!
