About Gary

Nena and I love this area. We have 4 dogs and we love the active lifestyle this area offers. We love biking, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, or just walking the beach. This is the area we want to retire to someday!

Gary purchased this house in 2014

Why Gary chose Marineland Acres

We chose this home because it's so close to the beach. This road also is a sandy road, with only neighborhood beach access. The views from the balcony are divine and the beach is the best in the area to enjoy the ocean.Even the dune walkover is natural.

The beach at the end of our street is a wide sandy beach with some shells and very few rocks. This makes for great swimming and playing in the water.

North of us about a half mile up the beach is Washington Oaks State Park and Beach with beautiful coquina rock formations. Great exploring and no crowds.

What makes this house unique

The home is very close to Washington Oaks State Park and is a natural setting. We have wild parrots, deer, and the state gardens within walking distance. We're also close enough to St Augustine - a 20 minute drive away.

Daytona Beach is 30 minutes south, Flagler Beach town is 15 minutes south.

We have 2 great beach bikes, 2 regular bikes,a stand up paddle board, and a 2 seat kayak - come on down the water's great!

Perfect home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. Homeowners were very kind and professional. Amenities and location were incredible. This home was very clean and comfortable. The beach was beautiful and was not crowded, which was our goal. The hot tub, bikes, and everything else were a blessing for our family of 5. This home is close to the crowd, but not in it. Everything was A+ and would definitely come here again. Couldn’t have been any better!

Absolutely wonderful home....We loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean, well-stocked, and excellent layout. We thoroughly enjoyed the views, the short walk to the beach, the coffee service, and the hot tub. There was plenty of room to spread out when desired, but the upstairs area had a very large cozy den and dining room that made it easy and comfortable for our guests to enjoy each other's company.

We have stayed at many VRBO properties, and this one really stands out. You can tell the owners care about the home and their guests, and they do all they can to ensure you will be comfortable and happy with your experience.

Charming, excellent beach access, well appointed...overall loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent beach getaway property for the New Year holidays. You can see the beach from the living room and balcony, so even on cold days we could tell when it was best to head out for a walk, while curled up on the couch enjoying Netflix. The hot tub was an added plus! We would definitely book again.

This property was perfect for our family! The teenagers enjoyed having their own area. The fenced in area was perfect for our dogs. Gary was great to communicate with. The house itself was cozy and clean.

Car: recommended

This part of Florida is natural and not heavily developed. There are great restaurants, dog friendly beaches, great walking trails, and a beautiful coastline to explore. We are about 1 hour to Orlando, 25 minutes to St Augustine, and 5 minutes from Hammock resort.

Washington Oaks State Park nearby to our north, has rock formations as well as a beautiful garden and natural area. This park extends from the Intracoastal to the Ocean.

Marineland , to the north, is a marine park with turtle hospital. There is also great kayaking in that area - 2 seat kayak is at the house - or rent a kayak there. Farmers market there every Saturday morning.

Malacompra bike trails nearby (south on AIA a mile or two) - has nice bike trails as well as a scenic bicycle sidewalk all the way to Flagler Beach.

The town of Flagler Beach has great restaurants and cute little shops. This is a great old Florida town - there is a museum, parks, etc - On the first Friday of every month, the town square has vendors and events. Every Saturday morning is the farmers market.

Fresh fish can be bought at the Seafood Shoppe in St Augustine or at Flagler Fish Restaurant ( eat in or take fresh fish to go) - both places have a wide selection of fresh seafood.

JT's restaurant nearby has all you can eat shrimp on Thursday nights :)

There is fishing at the beach, or at the Intracoastal waterway - Bing's landing nearby has a dock and a good barbecue place called Captain's.

Trail head bike shop across from Bing's has bikes to rent, and can do repairs if one of our bikes go down.

The Atlantic Grill in Hammock Dunes Resort is open to the public and has oceanfront dining.

St Augustine, is 30 minutes north and a pretty drive up A1A along the coast.There is tons to do there! See the fort, Ripleys, pub crawls, Ghost tours, carriage rides, stores, art, etc.

Daytona is about 30 minutes south and likewise has alot - the speedway, great restaurants, shops, and events.
