About the Property

Private house, with 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, 3 easy blocks from the Ocean


***Forbes magazine named St. Augustine one of the "10 Prettiest Towns in America", based on natural beauty & unique identity***
Situated between the Atlantic Ocean & Intracoastal Guana River Waterway, on a coastal estuary, the Crow's Roost is a truly peaceful refuge, with ocean breezes & beautiful views.
The two-story Crow's Roost possesses a personality & charm not found in hotels or most vacation rentals. Located in an established neighborhood that blends Old Florida with coastal chic, Crow's Roost is a pleasant 3 block stroll to the beach. Along the way, you'll find a lovely, shaded park with playground, basketball & tennis courts.
Outfitted with one-of-a-kind furnishings & artwork, Crow's Roost is a comfy, casual retreat that beckons you to unwind. WIFI, cable & TV are provided for those who want to stay connected to the world.
Downstairs, you'll find a roomy balcony, two serene bedrooms with queen beds, two bathrooms, one with a walk-in shower & one with an antique claw foot bath tub perfect for a luxurious soak. There's also a cozy seating area - its chaise is ideal for reading, napping or a child's sleeping space. There's also a bar sink with mini fridge for your convenience.
Upstairs, the ambiance speaks of good times with friends & family. The spacious, open-concept kitchen, dining & living areas flow seamlessly onto a relaxing balcony with gas grill, porch swing, seating & view. A half bath & den with another casual napping spot complete the second floor.

"We have enjoyed creating this tranquil space & we invite you to savor the beauty surrounding Crow's Roost... the golden shafts of sunlight streaming through live oaks, the sunsets reflecting lavender in the marshes, the flight of beautiful birds overhead, the sound of waves & refreshing sea air enticing you to stroll along the beach." - Gilda and Susan, Owners

We can accommodate large vehicles, campers & trailers.
Crow's Roost is a short drive, bike ride or walk from Vilano Beach, where you'll find a Publix grocery store, restaurants, a fishing pier & nature Boardwalk.
It's also an easy 3 block stroll to the beach, the only local shoreline where you can RIDE HORSES on the beach & the best spot to hunt for prehistoric shark's teeth. Cast a line, search for shells, swim or simply soak up the sun as you rest & renew on our breathtaking beach. The Surfside Park entrance area has parking, picnic tables, showers & restroom facilities, too.
A short drive away, over the Vilano Bridge, Crow's Roost guests can discover our nation's oldest city & one of Florida's most iconic destinations. History buffs love strolling our picturesque brick-lined lanes where the past waits around every corner. Explore our 17th century fort & fascinating museums, then sample our multicultural cuisine. Dozens of restaurants, cafes & bars await your enjoyment. Shoppers appreciate our eclectic array of locally-owned shops, as well as the upscale stores found at the St. Augustine Outlet Mall just outside town.

Crow's Roost rents for the week or month or long term seasonal. Please call to discuss details - 904-806-6828
RATE: 20% increase, July 4th week, Thanksgiving week, Christmas week, New Years week.

"Like love itself, St. Augustine lingers in the hearts of every romantic who ever strolled her brick-lined streets. Balmy ocean breezes beckon couples to walk hand-in-hand along the Bayfront. A horse & carriage ride along narrow alleys illuminated by flickering gaslight encourage stolen kisses. Dinner & wine on the Crow's Roost balcony or San Sebastián Winery rooftop reignites forgotten passion. Whatever your reason for visiting, the Crow's Roost won't disappoint. The minute I stepped on the balcony & felt ocean breezes wash over me, l exhaled." - Nancy M., guest
