"This beach house at Matanzas Inlet was as described, and met our needs. This was a spacious one bedroom home, perfect for two adults, and we appreciated that it was pet friendly. The decor was unique, with beachy wood carvings. We loved the large deck where you could sit in the sun on the west side in the afternoon sheltered from the onshore breeze or warm up in the morning sun on the south side. We could take a short walk across the road to a beach accessible at low tide, or a long walk/short drive to the beach at Matanzas inlet. There you can choose from the intercoastal side on cooler days, or the ocean side. Both have white sand beaches, and were generally quite quiet. You can walk a loop across the bridge, around the inlet to the ocean, and back. Many shells! The location was halfway in between St. Augustine and Palm Coast, with one restaurant within walking distance, and the nearest other restaurants about six miles away. It took about twenty minutes to drive in to St. Augustine, and the nearest grocery stores were eight to nine miles away, so we spent some time driving. Many nature preserves were nearby, including the River to Sea preserve and Washington Oaks state park. There was walking trail along nearby route 206 as well. We went to the farmers' markets at Marineland on Sunday's and the Ampitheatre on Wednesdays on Anastasia Island. The owners were very helpful, informing us about Kennedy Space Center rocket launches visible from the upper deck, and sharing a catch of fish. We were very comfortable and would rent it again."
