Not a condo scene!! 2 night or longer rental only. If renting for more that 2 weeks, additional cleaning fees apply. Every 10 days a cleaning day will be added. Each cleaning is $100. This beautiful free standing cottage is nestled quietly away one block from a pristine, white sand beach in Historical Butler Beach, Florida. It has as beautiful private, gated, small maintained back yard. The home is completely furnished. There is a washer/dryer, internet/wifi, Direct TV, and all usual appliances including a dishwasher. Many appliances to make you feel like you could cook about anything! I have tastefully decorated and maintained the house. Views are unobstructed into the back yard from the large living area. It is very private and quiet. All is on ground level with a small step up to the front and back door. Grab bars in the 2 bathrooms for safety. The beach is a one block stroll with no major streets to cross as the apartment is east of A1A. Now that Mary Street is the closest entrance to the beach due to Hurricane repairs up to A street, the cottage is very desirable as you keep your car at home, use the provided wagon to go to the beach 2 minutes stroll . Historical St. Augustine, the oldest town in the United States, is a 10 minute car ride with restaurants, shopping and site seeing tours. There are also restaurants right there in the area of the apartment as well. Located just one block across A1A is a wonderful boat ramp in if you wish to bring a boat or kayaks. You launch free from there. For anyone who needs at least a month to get away monthly rentals are also available. The Crescent Moon (a 1/1 cottage ) is in the front of the Ooo Laa Laaah but all is private and quiet. The HE Maytag washer dryer is shared with the Crescent Moon. Comfortable beds and furniture. I work hard to make your stay perfect. Great deal for those who love the quiet and are having trouble finding a nice place to vacation with their pets. A limit of 2 pets at the Ooo Laa Laaah.

About Martie McLean
I'm 69 years old and I live in Ocala, Florida. I have rented the front of the property for 6 years and have had fantastic reviews through other vacation websites. I also have a rental at Dekle Beach Florida (vacationrentals #7040694) that keeps me busy during scalloping season. I take great pride in my beautiful places and am very responsive to any of our guests' needs. I do not live locally but can be there in 2 hours. I have a team of folks that help me with any issues you may encounter. I am available by phone but especially by email. The lovely apartment is tastefully decorated and fully furnished. I want nothing more than for you to have a wonderful time at Ooo Laa Laaah and the Crescent Moon.

Why Martie McLean chose Saint Augustine
Just loved the backyard and the house. The beach is my favorite and private and eco friendly. The property is very quiet. Pets are welcome, too.

Perfect family trip!
What a wonderful family vacation we had staying in Martie's charming and clean home! The cottage was a short walk away from the pristine, lifeguarded beach, but still just a small driving distance from all the other things we love in St. Augustine. Parking was ample for our two grown daughters to visit with their families, and we also enjoyed the quiet and safe feel of the neighborhood and the privacy of the backyard. The listing description was accurate, and we especially appreciated the ease in which we could haul things to the beach in the cart and wagon. Overall, Martie was a wonderful hostess and we hope to visit again in the future.
Hi, Nancy! What a lovely and perfect review. It is what I strive to provide.
So much character and charm!
Totally loved this quaint little cottage. It had everything we needed to make us feel comfortable. My 15 year old granddaughter may not totally agree with me...she says the only thing missing was a full length mirror so she could check out her attire for the day :) The beach was unbelievably close and we ate at so many great restaurants that we're all within a couple miles of the cottage! Hope to stay there again next time we go to Florida.
I like the idea of the full length mirror. I will work on that. Martie
It just felt like home!!!!
Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay and amazing place overall!!! I loved St. Augustine!! ❤️❤️❤️
Hi, Lesley thank you so much for the 5 star review! St. Augustine is fun, fun, and more fun! Please come back.
Martie was wonderful to work with. Loved the backyard for the pup. Perfect distance to the beach.
Clean, Comfortable, Close to Beach!
My grown son and three grandchildren stayed a week at this rental and it was the cleanest, most comfortable beach rental I've ever booked! The neighborhood is very quiet and feels quite safe. The beach was so close.... a very quick walk to enjoy! It was great having two bedrooms with each having their own private full bath. The unit is decorated nicely and offers everything you could need and more! This beach is very family friendly and has a lifeguard on duty during the day. During our visit the water was so clear I could see my toes in thigh deep water although the guard told me it isn't always that clear I was very impressed. I enjoyed the decor as it is artsy and eclectic. The beds were very comfortable and there are plenty of linens available. With the kids we really appreciated the fact that there are beach accessories available for use! We could load up the wagon or cart and off we would go! Thank you for providing a wonderful little private piece of heaven! I would love to come back again! Oh - and if you do want to get out and explore St. Augustine is a very, very short drive to the north and has something to offer for everyone!!
What a nice thorough review for the Ooo Laa Laah. I believe you embraced all aspects of the house and area meant to be enjoyed. Thank you so much for all you mentioned to help others make their decisions. Martie
