About the Property
Anastasia Park Studio - Bikes and Beach Supplies - Close to Beach + Downtown
Small luxuries will await you in your cute and cosy romantic retreat on Santander Street.....a plate of freshly baked cookies or other treat upon your arrival. Klondike Bars in the freezer. A bottle of wine (or perhaps Sharon's island famous sangria) to toast your first sunset on the island. Some chocolates to nibble upon. Flickering candles in the evening for that cosy ambiance. A fireplace to gaze into......
(if you prefer non-alcoholic....please let us know and we will provide you a non-alcoholic sparkling beverage instead)
When you awaken.....everything you need to make your morning Keurig coffees and teas. Staying here is like staying at a romantic Bed & Breakfast Inn (although without the breakfast....sorry!). However, there are several good breakfast places within a 1/2-1 mile of the Studio....Les Petit Pleasures French Pastry and Bakery or Little Margie's FA Cafe or Anastasia Dinerl We also offer a complimentary "Martini Happy Hour on The Deck" where Dwight will make you one or more of his famous martini flavors.....such as caramel appletini, orange dreamsicle, pineapple upside down cake, key lime pie, citrus cooler.....or the cappucino martini! ( if you prefer your stay to be non-alcoholic please let us know and we will substitute to non-alcoholic sparkling beverages). (Must be 21 to receive any complimentary alcoholic beverages)
Deluxe pillowtop Queen Bed. And more sweet little luxuries....all quality high end linens, bedding, and towels. German-made Ibena 100% cotton blanket (made with no harmful chemicals). soft microfiber sheets, all natural hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial bamboo mattress pad. Choice of down or fiberfill pillows to lay your head upon. A Homedics Sound Spa to lull you to sleep with a variety of soothing relaxing sounds. Luxuriously soft Egyptian cotton/bamboo towels, Shower is supplied with all natural ShiKai botanical shampoo, conditioner,and body wash. Puracy organic, hypo-allergenic and paraben-free soaps and lotions. Refrigerator stocked with bottles of water and cream for your coffee!
We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the studio. We always meticulously clean, and every stitch of bedding is washed between guests....from mattress pad, blankets, quilts, pillow covers. Much cleaner than a hotel room ( scary to think how many people before you have lain on that same blanket or quilt...ugh!!)
You will have your own private entrance to your cosy and romantic retreat via a sliding door from your patio deck: Queen Bed, small dining table and chairs, 2 dressers, full length mirror, electric fireplace, closet with lots of hangers to unpack your belongings,, a small kitchenette 'cubbyhole' with mini refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster, Keurig machine with assortment of coffees and teas.

Small cooler and ice packs(in freezer). Save money on bike and beach stuff rentals ($100/person/week is the typical charge at bike rental shops in the area). Everything you need for biking to the beach or around the island or Historic downtown...and everything you need for hanging out at the beach. At the State Park next door you can rent kayaks, paddleboards, and Hobie Cat catamarans.
We are located in a quiet residential neighborhood on Anastasia Island (St Augustine Beach). If you don't want to be a 'tourist' ...but live like a local! This is a great friendly neighborhood! It is located right next to Anastasia State Park...and there is a private neighborhood back-gate to 'sneak' into the State Park. From here it is easy to access a great hiking trail thru the woods for your morning walk or jog....and an easy walk or bike ride to the beach as well as the state park concessions. Rent a kayak or SUP paddleboard or catamaran and enjoy the salt marsh and ocean!
Studio bedroom portion is approx 14 x 13 ft. Total square footage including bedroom, kitchenette cubbyhole, and bath is approx 280sqft. The studio was formerly the Master Bedroom of our home but we have converted into a separate studio. The studio is located in the front of house...and we live in the back half of the house in the "owners suite" . Thestudio walls have had extra sound-proofing insulation added and door from studio to rest of house has been locked off and has extra soundproofing layers.
Free access to Anastasia State Park (walk or bike via neighborhood backgate).
Also, if you are interested in possibly moving here someday....we are Exclusive Buyer's Agents and own our own real estate agency which ONLY works for buyers...For Buyers Only Realty. See LINKS for our website and to search for homes for sale

About: Your hosts and homeowners are Sharon and Dwight. Sharon owns a niche real estate company in St Augustine assisting buyers to relocate, For Buyers Only Realty. Dwight is a local firefighter/paramedic, but also helps to run For Buyers Only Realty with our many Buyer Clients. We just got married on the beach at Anastasia State Park in May 2015. We share our home with 3 indoor/outdoor cats....Tabitha, Betsy and Jax. Tabitha (my "ginger" cat and the official "ambassador" .....will probably come to greet you in the yard! But you also may see Jax (the big boy....17 lbs of buff colored buffiness) and only rarely Betsy (a shy grey tabby). We have also recently adopted Teddy, a one year old Havanese dog. Havanese are hypo-allergenic and do not bark! He may come wagging over to you to say hi to you when you are relaxing on the deck. We do not allow the dog or cats into the Studio.
Why Saint Augustine, FL, USA:
Sharon has always had a dream since a little girl of living on an island....so when she had the chance to move to Florida and St Augustine...there was no doubt that Anastasia Island would be the place she would choose to live! Dwight fell in love with Sharon......that is why he lives here.....but if truth be told....he would probably prefer a home with a larger garage and workshop for all of his tools!!!! LOL!
