Great Neighborhood Close to the Beach
"Overall, we had a wonderful vacation at Playa Haus. The decks are comfortable at all hours of the day and the house's location can't be beaten. The walk to St Augustine's gorgeous beach was an easy one. Our dogs loved their long twice-daily walks along the water. The downstairs apartment worked well for us when we had company. They appreciated the privacy and the separate entrance. It was an easy ride to get into the city while being close to several good restaurants in the beach area. Our dinner at the Ice Plant at the distillery, lunches at Aunt Kate's and breakfast at Georgie's Diner were all great. We loved both the Wednesday and the Saturday farmers markets along A-1-A.
While the house was comfortable, there are some suggestions we would make. Our first evening in the house was cool. We could only find one throw on the main floor. Later we located a comforter on the lower level. There should be some light blankets available when the bed covers are not enough.
The kitchen was more than well-supplied with dishes, cooking utensils and glassware. In fact it was so well-stocked that there was no room for groceries. Perhaps the cabinets could be thinned out a bit to mke room for renters' purchases. Renters with sensitivity to scents would also appreciate detergents and dish liquid that are unscented.
We rented a couple of DVD's from the red Box at Walgreens, but we couldn't figure out how to use the DVD/Bluray player in the living room. Maybe the owners could write out instructons on using the player that may be different from the ones renters are used to.
I probably sound a little negative in this review. I just want the owner to consider ways to make his/her renters even more comfortable. The house was cute, clean and nicely decorated. In fact, we have already booked the house for our vacation next year."
