Incredible little beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is exactly what we were looking for on our trip to St Augustine. Close to the historic area for sight seeing, but right on the beach for some peaceful and relaxing time together. All amenities are here. Just bring your bag and everything else is ready for you! Definitely would recommend and would gladly stay here again! Thanks for everything, Christa!

A little piece of home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our second year staying here for Memorial Day weekend and we're thinking it's going to become an annual tradition. Great, cozy place. Clean, right by the beach, and quiet.

Didn't want to go back home!

Clean, beachy chic, quiet, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The studio apartment is great for a couple or small family. It is very clean and very cutely decorated. For the most part it is very quiet, there is some construction in the neighborhood, but it is a very distant noise and does not interrupt sleep or peace. The location is perfect, the front door is literally steps from the beach access boardwalk. While the studio does not have a full kitchen, they have done a great job in having everything you need to prepare a meal. It also has a mid size fridge with freezer, plenty of space for the essentials. There are also some great breakfast spots within walking distance (Zaba's is a great local spot!)! The check-in instructions were not clearly laid out in the reservation, so we were unsure about how that would play out, no need to worry as it went off without a hitch. The owner is very accommodating, kind and is nearby if needed but out of sight otherwise. Highly recommend for a weekend getaway to the beach!
