My name is John and my wife's name is Carolyn. We currently reside in St. John's County Florida. We moved to Florida in 2003 and have enjoyed it ever since. I served twenty years in the U.S. Navy and retired in 2007.
Since moving to Florida in 2003, we soon discovered St. Augustine Beach and instantly fell in love with it. We searched for many years until we found this condo and knew we had to have it. So sit back, relax and enjoy your own Ocean view.

Awesome home to rent if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation. Located in a residential area - we easily toured St Augustine then came back to the house for the night. Great fishing from the backyard. Lanai with pool was nice and relaxing. My husband and I enjoyed the vacation home but it is large enough for 6 to sleep an enjoy comfortably. Can'the wait to go back!!!
We really did enjoy our stay. The house was exactly like pictures. We would stay there again. Highlight for us was seeing the dolphins in canal. Awesome!
You never know what you're going to get in a beach house until you get there, but this house is a really good one. The only complaint I have is that it only has 2 bedrooms so we can't stay with our whole family next time. It was perfect for just the three of us though. We really enjoyed our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook there. The grill on the back deck worked great. We have stayed at a few houses where there was a grill, but they didn't work. The beds are good. Very soft in the master bedroom and firm in the spare. Although the den is a good bit smaller than the living room it is so cozy we watched Netflix in the den most of the time. The canal is so close you can sit on the pool deck or either of the back porches to watch the boats come by or watch the fish jump. We came down in October so heating the pool was necessary. It took us a little while to get the pool warm enough to swim. The first two days we used a combination of the heat pump and the solar roofing system to get it warm. We finally tried the pool cover and the solar roof system together while we were in town before we got in on the last day and that worked the best. Even on the days when the water was a little chilly it wasn't too cold not to swim, you just had to keep moving. If you have a dog the house is very dog friendly. Our cocker spaniel seemed right at home. There's no carpet so if your dog is a messy eater or drinker it's an easy clean up. The washer and dryer were another favorite of mine. They are both new high tech, easy to use with huge drums to do more than a regular load. We really enjoyed this house and hope to rent it again on our annual October trip. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay.
Horrible experience...rented property for a week soon as we walked in the pool was green and filthy! Called Vacation Rentals Beach Properties and was told pool company closed and earliest would be 3 days later before they could come out. I spoke with John Clark owner of the rental agency daily, because I called to find out why the pool issue was still not taken care of, never once did their office call me it was us using our vacation time contacting them. The pool was never cleaned properly and once we were able to see the bottom chunks of the pool are gone and pitted due to it being an OLD pool. John Clark said we would be refunded money since we had no pool use for 5 days, he did refund a very small amount that he was only authorized to refund and would get approval for more. Since our departure I contacted John daily for the other money and was told no that we already received a good weekly rate....we were lied to. The home needs updating we spent our first day washing all of our bedding since you could smell nothing was fresh and had stains. This home is not equipped with proper dishes, pans, cups etc....we only found 1 knife to attempt making dinner it was like camping outdoors and making what we had work. 2 of the tvs we couldn't power on, light bulbs were burnt out. The 2nd bedroom is small and carpet was dirty flattened down and hard, we never took our shoes off in the home. There was no starter supplies, we had to buy dishwasher pods, paper towels etc. The freezer does not make ice because its not hooked up to a water line. Many light switchs but most didnt do anything or labeled with a question mark. I really hope the owners read these reviews because the property is not managed properly. I also found it amusing that another review was posted prior to our stay that was not there when we booked the property also complaining about the pool being dirty. We rented this property because we wanted a family home with a POOL while we were visiting St Augustine and instead of walking away talking about what a great sstay we came away feeling ripped off! They know this pool needs to be replaced but continue to rent it and just deal with complaints and do nothing to make it better. Truly dissatisfied and DO NOT recommend. We deserved a better refund and to be told no because we already received a good rate is absurd. Stay away!
We had a great family vacation at the Cozy Canal. The house was off the cove and we were able to enjoy the view during our stay. It was very peaceful and relaxing. There was only one downside during our stay. We were not able to use the pool because it was not clean upon our arrival. On Saturday, we called the office several times but no one ever came out to clean the pool. Because the pool service was closed on Sunday nobody could come until the day we were departing. Overall, the Cozy Canal is a must stay location and we will return. We will definitely recommend to others.

My husband, adult son and I had a fabulous week here. The house has everything you could ever need, perfect location, great size pool, sunsets were beautiful as was the dolphin siting every day. Husband caught 61 fish over 6 days but unfortunately they were all catfish - which he hastes ! LOL We will be back.
