House, 1 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 5 Sleeps
Come and stay at our custom-built marsh-front BEACH HOME -- located
just a block off the beach.
You will have all of the upper level (2nd story) & widow's peak
to yourself. We are located 15 minutes south of histrocial downtown
St. Augustine, 5 minutes north of Marineland, the world's first
underwater studio and 'oceanarium' and just 35 minutes north of the world-famous, fun-
filled Daytona Beach, all beautiful coastal drives.
The upper level consists of a huge Dining-Kitchen-Living area
with 1/2 bath, spacious bedroom with large full bath, wrap-around
deck and a widow's peak/tower. The petite dining nook rests in the
southeast corner and offers an ocean view. The modern, all-electric
kitchen is fully equipped and separated from the living area by a
full-length, old-Florida pecky cypress bar. The roomy living area
is covered by cherry/oak wood floors hand-made from trees cut right
here in Florida. The bedroom (with plush king-sized bed) and living
area open onto wrap-around deck. The west-facing deck is uncovered
for those sunbathers not wanting to leave the house, and the
southeast-facing deck is covered for a shaded repreive. Ascend the
spiral staircase to the tower for a panaramic view of the ocean,
marshland (top left pic), Matanzes Inlet, Summer Haven River & the Intracoastal
Downstairs you have an outdoor garden shower (hot/cold)and a
small deck looking out over the marsh. ALL VERY PRIVATE!
Our custom-built home was made-to-order for 2 self-indulgent
adults and is quite exquisite with its indigenous Florida wood
accents -- the cypress bar, cherry-wood cabinetry, baseboards, and
door framing/rosettes. Although built for 2, it sleeps 4
comfortably (sofa-bed) and up to 7 rather closely (blow-up mattress
available). We sometimes use the blow-up mattress just to sleep out
under the stars!

Wonderful New Years Vacation
This is a great place for a couple and good dogs, or just a couple who likes a quiet beach. We brought our 3 dogs and spent a lot of time walking the beaches. It's a quick ride(or walk) over the Matanzas Inlet to the National Park beach, or just a few minutes down the road to Washington Oaks State Park and all of the trails. Of course, we walked over to Old A1A onto the beach right here and found plenty of shells and birds to chase (not me, the dogs).
The house is quiet and private behind a gate and the deck wraps around 2 sides of the house, so we could get winter sun without the breeze. Inside it is very comfortable and the owners took extra effort to make sure we were comfortable. They loaned us their bikes do we didn't have to bring our own and were flexible about arrival/departure times as the schedule allowed it.
Great restaurants, groceries, and tourist "stuff" are all with 30 minute drives or less yet you are away from the crowds with views of the ocean and ICW.
We will be back, maybe without dogs, or maybe with more!
Relaxing days away from home
The bed was extremely comfortable too. The only thing we missed was a view of the ocean.
Most relaxing stay....
