Why Christa chose Florida North East

Great location with direct access to a magnificent unpopulated Ocean beach; no roads to cross and direct access via board walk or sandy path to the beach. Beautifully decorated, quiet side street, yet with numerous restaurants nearby; ca. 7 minutes away from the historic village, the zoo, lighthouse, the National Monuments 'Castillo San Marco' as well as 'the original fort 'Matanzas' in the middle of the Intracoastal waterway and more. A few more minutes to state parks and a dolphin sanctuary. The famous St. Augustine outlets are just 20 minutes away; the Town Center in Jacksonville offers a great selection of stores and more restaurants in a unique walk-outside setting. Bicyclists find many trails including ongoing beach miles.

A fantastic beachfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cozy, clean, well-stocked property. The location is great-- a stone's throw from the beach and a quick drive to historic St Augustine, as well as a variety of restaurants. Christa is a very helpful, responsive, gracious hostess. We hope to be back!

Small but great location and easy walk to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

My Wife and I had a blast in St. Augustine! Very cool people, great food (check out the taco stand at the end of the street) and nice beach! The room is set up more like a studio (great for two adults) and a very small room with a bathroom and a twin bed. The second room would be great for a small child. There is not a full kitchen but a good size fridge and toaster oven to warm things up. Next visit to St. Augustine we are going to bring the family so we will need a bit more room but would recommend this for two people.

Owner's Response: The apartment is definitely ideal for a 2 person getaway ( just as advertised) with considerably more space and added accommodations compared to just a hotel room. (The adjoining 10 x 12 room with a single day-bed is just a bonus to the large gathering room with a queen size bed).Beach chairs and beach umbrella, beach towels are also provided. Most guests enjoy the beach, the proximity to historical sites and the amphitheater as well as numerous great restaurants nearby; for example the Beachcomber at water's edge, Mango Mangos, The Taco Shop with picnic benches, all three just a stone's throw away. Other restaurants such as Salt Life, Panama Hatties, Café Eleven etc. just a few blocks from here. There are several breakfast places around here as well, the Oasis (upstairs), a Panera in Cobblestone Village etc. I hear, the Kokkaburra, 1 minute walk, makes great coffee. Or you can enjoy making your own with the Keurig coffee maker or alternatively the filter coffee maker; a Nu-Wave cooktop and a convection/toaster oven is provided.
