Overview

About the property

Five MASTER SUITE Oceanfront pool home with large deck and outdoor living.

Newly renovated in April 2014 with all King Sized Beds (New mattresses), insulation, drywall, electric, paint, flooring, ductwork, HVAC, plumbing, appliances, everything! We gutted this house down to the studs and made this into our retirement home for the future. Three master suites all share a large Trex deck with direct access/views of the ocean. One other upstairs master suite plus a ground level master suite provide privacy for your guests. Every room has it's own private bathroom. The ground level master suite has a handicap shower perfect for wheel chairs and the elderly. This is a non-driving portion of St. Augustine Beach and sleeps 10-14 comfortably. The regraded, newly sodded fenced yard is perfect for croquet, badminton or whiffle ball. The new fire pit allows you to relax with your guest by a roaring fire. Several shaded areas are perfect for entertaining. Outdoor speakers provide your favorite music. Sit under the deck or lounge area on rainy days while you wait for the inevitable St. Augustine sun to come back out or lay in the hammock in the gazebo as you watch the sun rise. Please note that we rent this home ourselves and do not use any other contracts from any other source including available holidays 2009.

About Lynne Campbell

We purchased this home in December of 2013. We have totally renovated it with all new King size mattresses and are doing these improvements as if it was our primary residence. We replaced all drywall, insulation, ductwork, HVAC system, electrical, plumbing, appliances, siding, windows, doors, etc. The pool has been resurfaced and switched to a saltwater pool. The deck was completely ripped off and replaced. There is nothing left from the old house except for the foundation and framing. We want renters that are looking for new, clean and upscale.

Lynne Campbell purchased this house in 2013

Why Lynne Campbell chose Florida North East

We would like to retire in St. Augustine one day and love the area. We first experienced St. Augustine over 10 years ago when our daughters were looking at colleges. They both ended up at Flagler College.

Just steps to the beach & walking to our favorite restaurants

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this property because of it's large oceanfront lots which make it ideal for large family vacations. Sleeps up to 14 people.

Love, Love Love this house:0)

  • 5 of 5

My family loves the Love Shack. We have been coming to St Augustine for over 35 years and we rented this house before Lynn and Tim bought it. It was a nice house, but when the Campbell's bought the property and redid the whole house, well all I can say, it is amazing!!!They have made it not only beautiful but warm and cozy. Everything was well thought out, from bedrooms, bathrooms and a well stocked kitchen. We love that it is on the beach but it also has a beautiful yard and pool. We hope to keep coming for many years. Thank you to the Campbell family for sharing their home.

Best Beach front rental

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun at this home! It was perfect for everyone. All master suites is great to have your own private bath. The house is immaculate. Has a super outfittted kitchen. Our favorite is the outdoor private resort feel!!! Love the saltwater pool & cover bar at the end. We spent most of our time out doors & the convenience of walking through the dune right on to the beach. This house has it all & is so clean. We will be back beach year to the Love Shack! Thanks

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly loved staying at the LoveShack. Five bedrooms with 5 baths were perfect. The kids (and even the big kids) loved the grassy yard to play in and the salt-water pool was wonderful any time of day, but especially after coming up from the beach to cool off. We especially enjoyed the outdoor area around the pool for dining alfresco, grilling, night swims, and just enjoying. The location was perfect with any amenity needed within walking distance. This part of the beach is wide and beautiful with the pier an easy walk away! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed (although an additional refrigerator would be nice). This home was perfect for us and we hope to come back very soon with our four children and spouses along with our five grandbabies. Thanks for creating such a fantastic beach house.

Amazing Resort!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, upscale house with every amenity you can have. Just spent a week there with my family. I think we only left to go out 3 times as there is no need with the pool, the ocean, the bar and beautiful view! We watched the sun come up and the moon rise from the second floor deck everyday!!

Perfect Family Gathering Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that my family has spent a week in July at this wonderful location. It is so comfortable & beautiful. And it is so welcoming. Our group ranged in age from 6 months to 67yrs old. We had kids enjoying the pool, adults enjoying the wonderful gazebo, and in the evenings, the fire pit. Everyone was comfortable and relaxed. I have spent many summers at St Augustine Beach and this is a prime location. The traffic is light. There are stores, restaurants, and a nearby fishing pier, all within walking distance. If you are looking for a place to accommodate a family gathering, or reunion with friends, you cannot do better than this. We plan to return again.

Cozy and charming, fun outdoor bar

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable family reunion of 12 in the Love Shack. It was very clean, charming, well equipped, and in a great location. The owners and caretakers were very friendly and helpful. They responded quickly with any upquestions.

However you couldn't see the beach from the first floor and the dune was difficult for our elderly to navigate. There lawn was great for playing bocce and the large firepit perfect for smores.

The saltwater pool was awesome but there could have been some shade.

The roomy outdoor bar with many stools was a favorite hangout as it was protected from the sun and the rain.

Overall, we all had a great time and would highly recommend this vacation home.

This wonderful oceanfront pool home with separate caretaker's cottage situated on three lots (2 are oceanfront) in the most private and beautiful part of St. Augustine Beach. Our caretakers live next door to the property and even if something is not working in this brand new renovated home, you are only a text away from getting it attended. This home is perfect for outdoor entertaining with a large oceanfront pool and gazebo with hammock as well as a large yard to enjoy the view and play bocce ball! In addition, this home is located on the non-driving portion of St. Augustine Beach so you won't have to worry about cars blocking your view!

Best of all, access to the beach couldn't be easier. There are no lengthy walkovers or long hikes over dunes. Walk directly onto the beach from you lawn. The main house has been completely renovated with 5 King size Master Suites with NEW MATTRESSES April 2014! All appliances, furniture, bedding and linens are new. Speakers on the deck, under the deck, poolside, kitchen and family room make sure you have your favorite music wherever you go. Bring you own cd's, choose one from the selection provided or plug your ipad into the system and listen to Pandora. There are caretakers next door to make sure you never have any problems.

Located on Anastasia Island in the town limits of St. Augustine Beach, approximately 5 miles south of historic downtown St. Augustine.

Several five star restaurants and bars within walking distance. Don't forget the Farmer's Market at the pier (on Wednesdays) just 5 streets away. And for the children, visit the Alligator Farm and the Fountain of Youth. Adults will love browsing through shops in the oldest city in the US.
