About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Close To Beach

Surfside retreat is a classic old florida beach cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and the characteristic beach cottage feel from white and blue interior, beadboard walls, ceiling fans and charming cottage features. But it also has large adjoining open spaces for entertaining, dining and lounging more consistent with the other modern upgrades of a today’s beach cottage (dishwasher, flat screens, modern fully equipped kitchen and wireless internet).

The sophisticated yet inviting white-on-white décor with blue accents sets the tone for the rules of the cottage: relax, relax, relax. The comfortable couches and chairs, multiple dining spaces, and open common spaces invite conversation, games, and kicking back following a day at the beach across the street. The outside spaces include a rose arbor with intimate shaded seating, and outdoor dining provide the setting for kicking back, whether day or night. The stroll from the beach, followed by a quick cooling outside shower as an option, means that ‘going to the beach’ does not require hours of packing up the gear!

It is the perfect getaway for a family beach vacation that is near grocery stores if cooking is your thing and near restaurants if the cook is on holiday, too. Old town st. Augustine is just across the a1a bridge to the downtown area of st. Augustine. Off-street parking for four cars is convenient, too, at surfside retreat.

Please contact owner for monthly pricing.

Quaint and cute

  • 5 of 5

First impression as we parked the car was...this place is a adorable! As we walked in we we not disappointed. I fell in love! The inside was immaculate. Everything had a place. It was so spacious yet cozy. The owners really pay attention to detail to make their guests feel right at home....and we did! I loved the outside shower hookups, the gas fire pit, the beach stroller for us to be able to walk all our things across the street. I would love to rent in the cooler months to be able to use the wood stove! Very short drive to downtown St. Augustine for us to play tourist on our stay-cation. We can't wait to go back. Thank you for the great experience. The Pennell's/Port Charlotte, FL. and the Cerullo's/Orlando, FL.

Perfect Cottage Very close to Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The beach cottage was perfect in every way for my family's vacation! The house was well stocked with anything you could need, clean bath and beach towels, books to read, cookware, etc. We loved the cart to take across the beach with us, and the chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards were nice to have! The house was very clean and appreciated the beachy decor too! Andrea is very accommodating and easy to get ahold of if need be! My family will definitely be back to this house!

Incredible beachy house perfect for friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

What can't I say about this house! It was so much more than I thought it would be. Adorable decor, spacious rooms, beachy kitchen. My friends and I were here for my wedding weekend- so getting ready would have been a chore if not for the ample space that was perfect for busy bridesmaids and a savvy team of hair & makeup! My photographer couldn't get enough of the small details throughout the house and on the exterior. Some girls were able to walk across the street and hit the beach before getting ready. I was able to walk over in the am to collect sharks teeth (I found 7!) pre-wedding- which is also a great stress reliever! The best part was the natural light throughout the house which was perfect for getting that natural look with makeup and pictures! Thank you so much for a perfect space for our perfect weekend!
