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.

BEDS: Queen-size bed upstairs. Day bed with roll-out trundle bed downstairs. Sleeper sofa. Sleeps four comfortably.

Great oceanfront retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location with the ocean right out the door. Good proximity to St Augustine shopping, sightseeing and dining. Property owner/manager very responsive and high quality person. The stairs are tricky and not appropriate for older or disabled persons. The home is rustic but worked well for us.

Owner's Response: The spiral staircase leading to the upstairs bedroom is sturdy and easy to navigate for most people. Please see photos for full detail. The furnishings for the most part are not new but function perfectly well and are very clean and comfortable, contributing to the rustic feel of this charming cottage. Thank you so much for your feedback!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Even though the house needs a little 'love' it was fun being there and is in a wonderful location...right on the beach, a minute or two from a grocery store, and just a few minutes to St. Augustine downtown. We enjoyed it and if it weren't so dang far we'd go again soon. Maybe next year.

Just a hint: if you plan to do any serious cooking while there you might want to take a sharp kitchen knife and a pan or two....just sayin'.

I don't think you could find a more beautiful place with a more beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong here. For only 200 bucks a night you get incredible beach access and a breathtaking 24 hour view. The inside is well preserved and holding a classic look. The porch has panoramic ocean view and 360 degree starlight view. Bring a telescope!

Cozy with a great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The location is great. The cottage is worn but spotlessly clean. It is a great spot to enjoy quite time at the beach or explore St Augustine.

It got cold our first night at the cottage. In the middle of the night I was unable to figure out how to turn on the heat nor could we find extra blankets. I found the manual for the cooling/heating system in the AM and we did not find the spare blankets until the morning we left. I drive a 3/4 ton truck. The available parking spot was very tight for my truck. I did not like having to back out of the driveway onto AIA .

Other than freezing and minor parking hassles I very much enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! The ductless heat and air conditioning system is only one year old and works very well. Most people find the controls fairly straightforward, and there is an instruction manual in case of any questions. There are also several extra blankets in the downstairs bedroom closet. Larger vehicles can easily be accommodated. Just let me know if you are bringing a large or multiple vehicles and we can make arrangements for you.
