Welcome to the best of both worlds - our 3 unit townhouse named Mi Casa and historic St. Augustine. Quiet and secluded yet a spectacular location. We are directly on the ocean and the mouth of the Matanzas River Inlet which supplies the Intercoastal waterway. The variation of low and high tides provides a magical quality to Mi Casa that is unique.
When the tide is high, surf fish the Inlet just steps from your deck and private alcove. When the tide goes out, it reveals a marine wonderland (we are on the National Registry of places to see) of sandbars and tidal pools...perfect for shell hunters, bird watchers and nature lovers in general. Low-tide also allows the young ones to splash around over a wide stretch of the beach without the normal concerns of a rushing tide.
For the surfing enthusiast, a few hundred yards to the south provides the best wave riding for miles around. And,no cars are allowed on this beach. You'll be transported to the 1600's when you visit St. Augustines' cobblestone streets, horse drawn carriges, famous restaurants, and some of our nations original buildings. History abounds.
Please check our reviews - if you want the ambiance of the ocean just a sliding glass door away, we are it. The beach as your oyster, that is Mi Casa- we are right on the beach.
The world famous Marineland where you can swim with the dolphins or go on a kayak tour is 3 miles south. Five minutes away is Devil's Elbow marina, which has boat rentals to cruise the intercoastal where schools of dolphins abound.
The 2000 square foot deck is shared by the three units in this triplex; each unit has a private alcove with separate picnic bench as well as a private balcony directly off the master bedroom - if you are not a romantic when you come, you will be when you leave.
Each unit consists of three levels. The sleeping arrangements are: loft - twin beds; master bedroom (with private balcony overlooking the ocean) - king size bed. The master bedroom is twice the size of normal beachfront accomodations, with a large walk-in closet and pure oceanfront view right from your sheets! Downstairs, living room converts to a bedroom with two double beds (trundle bed type). There's two full baths with a conventional staircase.
Mi Casa has been under new ownership and operation since May 2011. The middle unit was acquired October 2011 and has been updated with all new appliances, AC, TVs, beds, EVERYTHING!!
