This adorable A-frame has its own private walkway, surrounded by red and yellow blanket flowers, white and purple morning glories and sea oats swishing in the breeze. Head to the beach to swim, surf, fish, or just go shelling. You’re sure to see flocks of pelicans breeze by. At dusk sit on your private deck and watch the dolphins as they take their nightly run up and down the channel in front of your cottage. After moon rise watch the ocean for showers of phosphorus sparkling on the waves as they crest.

In addition to a full kitchen complete with blender for those beach side margaritas, this cottage features a loft bedroom with a queen size bed. You will be stunned by the smashing view of the Atlantic when you open your eyes each morning. There is also a bedroom downstairs with a daybed and comfortable trundle bed. A full bath is readily accessible downstairs and an outside shower is also available for your convenience.

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to get away and relax. Couldn't ask for a better location, great morning walks, shell hunting on the beach. Morning coffee on the deck with a great ocean view was very soothing. The beach was never crowded and everyone we encountered was very friendly. There is plenty to do and explore in town too. Overall this is a great place to vacation. The house was clean and very welcoming, making it easy to make yourself at home.

Cute cottage in idyllic setting directly on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Idyllic setting directly on a quiet beach. Magnificent sunrises replete with flocks of pelicans and pods of dolphins. This cute cottage has all the necessary accoutrements for a comfortable stay and a large supermarket is located conveniently a few blocks away. St Augustine is a fantastic place to explore.

Minor repairs (sliding glass door) and refurbishing (painting, deck, porch & bathroom rehab, dishwasher) of the property would boost this rating; however, we had a lovely stay & good communication with the owner.

Note to travelers in wheelchairs: Despite a ramp to the second level, this property is not accessible and the owner does not list it as such. We took it upon ourselves to stay with our two sons in wheelchairs and struggled greatly.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your reply! The sliding glass door is now repaired (latch rusted from the ocean air) and painting, updating etc are now in the works. We greatly appreciate your feedback, as it helps us to continually improve our renters' vacation experience!

Location, Location, Location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this adorable beach cottage over New Years for a relaxing getaway with our dog and got just that. The location was perfect - unobstructed views of the ocean, a mostly empty beach, an easy drive to historic St. Augustine, and a Publix right up the street! The large deck was where we ended up spending most of our time as our dog loves people watching and breezes. It looks like there was a gate up on the deck at one point and it would have been nice to have during our stay. Overall the cottage was nice, but it can definitely use some maintenance and could have been cleaner upon our arrival. It's not enough to keep us away from future trips to this particular house, and I did receive a message from the owner that management changed in the middle of our trip so hopefully in the future things will be even better.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your detailed feedback! As the owner of this property -- and being recently retired -- I am now managing the unit myself, effective 1/1/17. I have spoken with the most recent renters, and all of the maintenance items (some of which related to Hurricane Matthew) have now been addressed. Housekeeping has also been revamped, including a new contract and spot inspections. And finally, updates are underway including a new ductless HVAC system.

Would give the house 3-1/2 stars if I could. Great location, but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this cottage in early September 2016. The location is undeniably awesome. Oceanfront, private balcony, wonderful unobstructed ocean views, particularly from the upstairs bedroom. The beach is sparsely populated in this residential area, so it made for a private get-away.

We had a great time collecting sharks teeth on the beach, fished in the inner coastal, enjoyed Aunt Kates and Caps on the Water in Vilano Beach, and made use of the easy access to St Augustine.

On the down side the house is a little smaller than we expected, lacks a dishwasher, generally could use some updating, and could've been cleaner.

The Owners responded quickly to our initial inquiry and were prompt in providing access details as our check in got closer.
