Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Pounds Cottage is a cozy 1 bedroom ocean front cottage built by its owners on the Crescent Beach Dunes in 1952. Since then, it has been lovingly cared for and enjoyed by the family. If you like the idea of staying in a quiet, unpretentious beach cottage that’s vintage Florida, Pounds Cottage may be just what you’re looking for. Even your pets are welcome in this seaside home.

Pounds Cottage is a one-bedroom / one-bathroom, the air-conditioned cottage that sleeps four when the sleeper sofa is put to use. The cottage is a one-level home set on stilts with beautiful window and deck views of nearby vegetation and a glimpse of the ocean at the horizon.

One of the unforgettable experiences you will have while staying at Pounds Cottage will be watching the sun rise over the magnificent Crescent Beach dunes as you enjoy a cup of coffee from your deck. It is a magical experience.

This large deck will be the site of many family dinners and you’ll also like that there are outside beach shower facilities at Pounds Cottage so you won’t have to worry about dealing with indoor sand.

From the large deck, step through the front door into a spacious living space with high ceilings and original wood paneling. Large windows bring nature into the entire space, filling it with bright sunlight and the lush green of the Dunes vegetation.

The living area is outfitted with comfortable sink-into-me furniture and a large flat-screen HDTV with DVD player. There are also books, magazines, cards, board games, and the Internet to bring the outside world into your seaside vacation home. Imagine the fun of gathering your family around for a movie or game of Monopoly or to chat about the adventures you’ve had fishing, playing on the beach, golfing or shopping in the fun-filled St. Augustine Beach area.

There’s a sturdy wooden dining room table and chairs just beyond the living room space. Near by is the kitchen with breakfast bar that seats three. You’ll find most of the appliances, and all the cookware, dishes and utensils you need prepare meals for your family in this kitchen. There is no dishwasher in Pounds Cottage. There are plenty of cabinets to hold the food you buy for your stay at the nearby grocery.

There is a washer and dryer within Pounds Cottage so you can keep your family in clean clothes throughout your stay.

The bedroom continues the woodsy feel of the house with wooden beamed ceilings, wood floors and paneled walls. There’s a king-sized bed, which will feel great after a day of fun in the St. Augustine Beach area. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and cabinet to store your toiletries during your stay.

Lush bushes, palm trees, and natural dunes’ vegetation that offer their own unique beauty surround the exterior of the house. You’ll like the parking that’s available at Pounds Cottage. You can even pull your car beneath the house and out of the elements into the carport if needed.

If you want an authentic, vintage Florida vacation in the Crescent Beach dunes just beyond the Atlantic Ocean, book a stay at Pounds Cottage for your next getaway.

Pounda Cottage

  • 3 of 5

Very clean, was not impressed because pictures are not what the cottage looked like.

Yard was overgrown, needed to be cut and poison ivy was every where and my husband can not go near poison ivy. The trail to the beach was covered in poison ivy, so to get to the beach we would have to walk a block and a half. It was a very quite stay, but couldn't enjoy the beach which was our reason for staying here. Don't think we will be staying here again
