About the Property

LUXURIOUS HOME -perfect for large or intimate groups to celebrate time together

Award winning NIGHTS OF LIGHTS until January 31 Perfect waterfront home for groups, family celebrations or vacations! The house is beautifully appointed with heart pine floors, elegant antiques, fine paintings, even a harpsichord. The living areas are spacious with wonderful flow and openings to the covered lanai, heated saltwater pool with spa and multiple decks overlooking Salt Run and the Atlantic Ocean. Historical downtown St Augustine is just a few minutes (less than 2 miles) away.

Salt Run is a protected harbor just beyond the dune to the Atlantic Ocean. You can be at the beach in minutes, but you won't want to leave the many exhilarating waterfront options, privacy and security my home has to offer in your own backyard. Excellent restaurants are just around the corner or enjoy grilling on the back lanai.

Free bicycles and kayaks, pool, spa and games as well as fishing equipment available for you during your stay. I provide a pass to Anastasia State Park next door for beautiful beach access


(Reviews on this site cannot be deleted or altered, so you will get an honest idea of the experience)

Salt Run is protected and peaceful for safe kayaking, paddle boarding, skiing & tubing and any kind of boating. It is perfect for entertaining or for your own peaceful retreat. This is salt water...no alligators, only fish, turtles, dolphin and occasional manatee.

Sunrise and sunsets are breathtaking! Nights are magical with only the moon, stars and the St Augustine Lighthouse lighting the sky.

The property is professionally treated against mosquitos so you can maximize enjoyable time outside even more. Lighting and stereo speakers are located at the dock as well as porches, pool and decks so you can have your choice of music any time of the day or night.

My home offers a perfect place for a intimate private getaway or for multiple families or friends, giving everyone plenty of space for socializing with the advantage of a floor plan that allows ample privacy. It is a home and location everyone will love❤️

Car: Recommended

Every water sport you can think of is ready for you in your backyard. Anastasia State Park and all the historical attractions are an easy bike ride or short car ride away. The St Augustine Amphitheater offers excellent entertainment as well as St Augustine Farmer's Market every Saturday at the Amphitheater from 8:30AM-12:30PM and at the Pier Wednesday morning. It is tempting to stay at the property with so many activities right your own backyard.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I love nature and the privacy and peace my home provides. I also love bring joy to others and doing all I can to show each person how important they are to me.There is nothing more important to me than safety and well being of your family members as well as pets and keeping the house it perfect condition. On Saltrun, the sounds of the surf and sites of nature remind you of the life's simple pleasures. The home is designed in a way that flows well, accommodates groups of all types and sizes while giving everyone plenty of space and privacy. It has very high end furnishings, but not pretentious. I feel proud of call this my home and love sharing it with people who have the same respect.

Why the Owner Chose Lighthouse Park (Saint Augustine, FL, USA):
My home on Salt Run is uniquely private & peaceful with beautiful wildlife (Salt water so no alligators...only fish, dolphin and occasional manatees) yet close to all the St Augustine parks, beaches and attractions. St Augustine's charming, historical downtown area is a short drive or bike ride from the house.I love the fact that it is not a gated community, but a wonderful, eclectic mixture of wonderful neighbors. Once you drive through the gates, of the home, however, you are in your own wonderful world. The property is perfect for family gatherings, multiple family and small events. I ask you do not construct stages or set up event tents unless we have discussed it and approved. I have an event liaison that will help you and make sure things run smoothly. Please let me know your intentions for the property so we are all on board to make sure you have the best time possible.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Drive through the gates into a private paradise for friends and family to enjoy. Wonderful entertaining! Dolphin feeding in Salt Run, birds of all varieties (I love the pink spoonbills and diving pelicans) coming over from the Alligator Farm for fresh fish. Anastasia State Park, the lighthouse, beach, and almost anything you can imagine is just a short bike ride away. I have enjoyed the music of James Taylor and The Beach Boys from the 3rd floor deck as they played at the amphitheater in the park near my home. Year round, you can enjoy the fireplace, chimneas, the Jacuzzi and heated pool .
