Windswept Beach House Is A 3 Br 2 Bth House Just Steps Away From The Ocean.
Windswept Beach House is located in south St. Augustine Beach very close to Crescent Beach. We are just steps away from the ocean and intracoastal waterway. If you're looking for old Florida charm and a beachy atmosphere then this is the place for you. There is knotty pine on the ceilings throughout the entire house and a knotty pine accent wall in the living room and kitchen adding to the beachy charm. We have a great chefs kitchen with top of the line appliances, coffemaker, microwave, toaster, blender, loads of dishes including serving pieces, glasses, silverware, everything you need to creat a gourmet feast. We have flatscreen smart TV's in the living room and all bedrooms and we offer
Wi-Fi and Netflix for your enjoyment.
We are located in a beautiful old Florida neighborhood just minutes away from lots of local restaurants and entertainment venues. St. Augustine is just a quick 8 mile drive to the north, Jacksonville is just 45 minutes to the north and Daytona Beach is about an hour to the south. If you love sea life and sea creatures, Marineland is 10 miles south and is a great way to spend a day and swim with the Dolphins. The kids will love the themed miniature golf venues just minutes away, and if eating is your thing, you will love the restaurant choices you have in this area. One of our favorite local restaurants Red Frog and McToads is a quick half block walk away. We also love Paula's Beachside Cafe and Mango Mango's, all just minutes from your door, and there are so many more for you to choose from.
If you are looking for things to do, you can book deep sea fishing trips, rent kayaks and surfboards, go golfing, rent a scooter or just relax.
This house is all about fun and relaxation. Our backyard is completely enclosed with a privacy fence for your relaxation and also for the convenience of you and your pets. We offer a wooden deck and a paver patio with a firepit. You will be able to use the gas grill or the two charcoal smokers and play horseshoes while your food is cooking. You can dine outside or just sit around the firepit and reminisce about your day on the beach. We also have an outdoor shower for your convenience so that you can come from the beach and rinse off without having to go inside.
We have designed our outdoor spaces so that there is always a place for you to relax in the shade, or be in the sun if that is what you choose. The best place in the yard is the hammock. Just imagine slowly swinging in the hammock, feeling the cool ocean breeze and just relaxing with a good book and a glass of wine. It doesn't get any better than this!

About Property Manager/Owner
Windswept Beach House is owned by The Wiedegreen Family, Craig, Kurt and Kathy. We own many rental properties in Jacksonville but we wanted a place to unwind. We love St. Augustine so we knew this was the place for us. We just love it here and hope all of our guests will feel the same about our beach house and the St. Augustine area.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this House in 2014
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Butler Beach
We found this property in total disrepair and lovingly brought it back to life. We have put a lot of hard work into restoring this lovely house to it's original old Florida charm. We love that we can walk to the beach and the intracoastal waterway and enjoy all of the outdoor activities in the area (fishing, surfing, boating and kayaking, bicycling, sunning and most importantly relaxing)
What makes this House unique
We bought this property because we loved the area and the neighborhood. This for us was exactly what we felt beach living should be like. We have great neighbors, wonderful local neighborhood restaurants, stores and entertainment venues and we have made this house exactly what we wanted....beachy and comfortable.

Windswept Cottage in St. Augustine Beach FL
My wife and I stayed at Windswept for the month of February 2018 along with our two adult dogs. Craig called us twice before our trip to tell us about the amenities of the cottage and to answer any questions we might have about the area. He also called us on the day of our arrival to make sure everything was in order. The house was very clean and the bathrooms and kitchen were very well-stocked. The large fenced backyard was great for our dogs and we enjoyed having our morning coffee on the paver patio. There was an outdoor shower hose to use after we walked the dogs on the beach. It was nice to have tile floors rather than carpet. We had close and easy access to the beach, grocery shopping, and many restaurants. We enjoyed our visits to the historic district of St. Augustine as well. The weather was very nice and we especially enjoyed biking on the beach. We look forward to returning to St. Augustine Beach on Anastasia Island.
Great Vacation Home
We rented for a month in April. The house is very clean with great fenced in shaded backyard, which gives privacy. The house was very accommodating, plenty of linens, towels, dishes and even had bikes, coolers, chairs. All we had to bring was our food and clothes. The house is 3 easy blocks from the beach and the access point there does allow driving onto the beach. I will definitely look to stay again.
A wonderful coastal themed home in a great location!
This home was perfect for us. The location was close to the beach, and a short drive to all of the local attractions. I loved that it was away from the congestion of downtown St. Augustine and St. Augustine beach, yet just a few minutes drive to anything! The beach was not too busy and I was there almost daily. I bought an annual pass since I knew I would be there frequently, and was able to drive on the beach with all my "stuff". The home had everything I needed for a relaxing vacation. Beach chairs, coolers, bikes, toys, etc. The fenced yard was perfect for our pet, so we didn't have to worry about him being "on leash" all vacation. And he enjoyed the beach too! The home was decorated so nicely, that it felt like home almost instantly. And again, everything we needed was there! Thank you Craig and see you next year!
loved it! Beautifull home,
Clean, organized, great décor, well stocked with every thing you need. Close to the beach. I recommend this house to all.
Great property close to the beach
Great vacation home. Short walk to the beach. I walked the dog every day. Enclosed back yard so I could let the dog out to run. Craig was wonderful, any problems and he was on it.close to a great bar for breakfast/lunch and dinner. Everything providedA+++++
Great Vacation House
This was our 3rd time at "2nd Haven" and we had just as much fun and relaxation as we did the first 2 times. We had our Corgi dog, Reggie, with us and he had a great time in the fenced in yard. He had to check out the entire yard each morning to see who had been around. The local restaurants are wonderful and just a short trip down A1A. Looking forward to future stays.
Old St. Augustine is the oldest city in the country and is full of history and architecture. It is a great walking city but also offers trams, carriages, skooters and bicycles for those of you who prefer seeing it from another perspective. There are ample ways to see St. Augustine, a walking wine tour, a ghost tour, historical tours or just take your time and walk the city on your own. However you choose to discover St. Augustine you will quickly learn why we love the area so much.
If you are looking for good golf, International World Golf Village is about 30 minutes up Interstate 95 and it's about a 45 minute drive north on A1A to the TPC at Saw Grass in Ponte Vedra Beach. Daytona Beach is an easy 45 minute drive on Interstate 95.
If you like to shop you can explore all the shops that St. Augustine has to offer, if you still want more then shop in Jacksonville or Daytona Beach. There's something for everyone.
