Fantastic home with a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids, ages 4 - 12) truly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. We have rented numerous homes over the years, and this by far was the most luxurious with the best location. All listing details were accurate and place was just as depicted from photos.

The owner was a pleasure to deal with (she is definitely one of the highlights of renting this home) and went above and beyond making us feel welcome.

The house has every amenity you could want. It is the combination of staying at an expensive spa retreat, but with the coziness of a home.

Inside - Beautifully decorated throughout

Bedrooms - all 4 bedrooms were very comfortable with fine linens. Each bedroom had a huge flat-screen TV. 2 Bedrooms upstairs, 2 downstairs.

Bathrooms - Both bathrooms were lovely. All upgraded. Shower upstairs. Very Cool claw-footed tub downstairs.

Living Areas - Multiple locations to sit and spread out. Nice sitting area in front of kitchen, Another sitting area with TV. Best place was a little TV/laundry room right off the kitchen where the kids set up shop. Shut the door - shut out the noise! ;)

A bonus was a built-in desk underneath the stairs. My husband and I utilized this a lot to do some work in between all our fun. Wi-fi was excellent.

Kitchen - All updated appliances and every utensil or small appliance you would need. Definitely a chef's kitchen. Everything was so well organized.

Outside - Grounds were beautiful and location was awesome

Pool - heated and a nice size. Little shallow area for my 4-year-old to play in was so great. Definitely a plus if you have a little one who can't swim yet. It also had a nice waterfall feature that the kids loved. Owner had a door alarm on the back door that you could activate if you want, so no young escape artists can get to the pool without supervision.

Beach - A very short walk past a couple of houses and over some dunes and you are at the beach. Walk was short and very manageable even when lugging a ton of beach items. St. Augustine beaches are the best!

Location - Great location. Walking distance to restaurants and mini-golf.

This review was very family-with-kids centric, but I tried to hit all the points that I look for when renting a home. Bottom-line, you won't be disappointed renting this house. It would be just as great for a bunch of couples, girls/boys week away as it was for our family.

Kathleen is a fantastic hostess!!! She doesn’t miss any details and has thought of everything! The pictures are beautiful, but the property has so much more to offer. We really enjoyed our stay!!! The location is perfect!!! I highly recommend this beach house to those who enjoy cooking - you’ll fall in love with the kitchen. And for those who are curious, all of the beds and linens are high end and very comfortable! You will sleep like a baby!!! Thank you to Kathleen for sharing your paradise with us. We had a fabulous time!!!

Fantastic Cottage Living

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a great time at "A Shore Thing". The cottage was well equipped, with nice linens, a fully stocked kitchen, bikes for all of us and plenty of beach and pool toys. The applicances (fridge, stove and laundry) are all new and high end. The location is perfect....a quick walk to the beach and an easy walk or bike ride to several restaurants. Anastasia State Park is only a mile and a half away and all of the historical sites of St. Augustine are about 4.5 miles way (totally bikeable for adults).

The owners are accessible and responsive. We will definitely return!

Excellent home with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our two families. Kathleen and Doug were wonderful to rent from and their house was spotless on arrival. They provide so many extra amenities that I have not found in other VRBO rentals including appetizers upon our arrival, paper products and toiletry items, even some K-cups! The home is on a short dead end street that ends at the walkway to the beach. You need only walk past maybe 3 homes and you are there. The heated pool was enjoyed by all, as were the bikes and cozy enclosed patio area. Beds are comfortable. Wifi worked great. We had absolutely no complaints. Many restaurants nearby and the historic area of St. Augustine is a short drive. If you plan to go into the city, go early and park your car for the day. Afternoon traffic was bumper to bumper on a Thursday. The working lighthouse is a neat place to see and inexpensive; short drive but not too far of a bike ride if you're up to it. We were there more for relaxing at the beach! Thank you, Doug & Kathleen. We highly recommend this rental property.

Perfect place for some family R&R

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about the house and our host Kathleen. The house itself was beautiful throughout with plenty of room for even a large group. It is close to everything. The beach was great and only a few steps away. The heated pool was the highlight for us. Kathleen was available for any questions we had and was very helpful. Highly recommended.
