vacation rental description

This is it, Folks! See the stories in the Coastal Living, Jacksonville magazine & Gainesville magazines here! Come vacation in a treasure of Summer Haven history. This 110 year old cottage is located 50 steps from the Atlantic Ocean. Five bedrooms, a great room with fireplace, two bathrooms - one with an original claw-footed tub - large family kitchen, pantry, laundry, dining porch, and wrap-around porch. Send your thanks back in time. Your stay at The Lodge, a 19th century beach cottage near gorgeous St. Augustine, promises a historic and redefining simplicity. A few days here means renewed sense of ‘the important things in life’, chock-full of familial magic. Tucked on a sleepy cul de saq next to the Atlantic Ocean, The Lodge and its older sister The Hut are elegant and understated reminders of a far-away time. An area known as Summer Haven was recommended to stressed Pennsylvania banking baron, Thomas Mellon, for its restorative powers. Construction on first The Hut and then The Lodge began in the 1880s, at a time when Chester Arthur was president and Mark Twain was busy finishing his Adventures of Huck Finn. This is seriously good quality time, where simple, beautiful touches - candle light and ocean breezes - complete the setting. A house with this much history begs for a multi-generational vacation where the stories come out - as family folklore enjoys another airing. Take the time on this holiday to hear the stories you’d never otherwise have chance to hear. Reconnect with grown cousins or childhood friends - covering more ground than you ever would in a hasty holiday card. Whip up beloved family meals - packing your grandmother’s handwritten recipes for a birthday cake made from scratch. Snap dozens of photos as Grandpa teaches the next generation to fish. Try this more genuine of magic kingdoms for real family bonding, in surrounds so idyllic they look like a movie set. Adirondack chairs wait on the wrap-around porch, where palm trees dot the view of stone breakers just beyond. Liberal touches of antiquity, such as the front porch’s restored pew bench, leave room to wonder what the walls would say - if they could talk. A private dock is charming and ramshackle, perhaps Huck-Finn-comes-to-Florida (Dock is to shallow water due to sand bars.) Up to ten guests can comfortably stretch out over 1,200 square feet. Five double occupancy bedrooms, four queen beds and two bunks, share two bathrooms. An equipped kitchen, dining porch and a living area each honor the old with family heirloom accessories and new, comfy furniture appropriate to the period. The house boasts recent refurbishment across every inch - yet maintains all original features. Solid pine floors and old glass windows. A claw-footed porcelain bathtub and a pyramid roof for extra air circulation. Instead of closets, enjoy simple wall hooks to keep your clothing organized - and relish in a vacation that requires only a parade of shorts, t-shirts, bathing suit and towel (repeat). For modern conveniences, enjoy phones and cable TV. If you’d rather do without, they can stay easily tucked out of sight. Past guests love the inclusive aspect their vacations can take, thanks to the home’s single-story plan. Older relatives who struggle with mobility will enjoy a property that has everything to hand. The ocean, just 100 feet away, can be seen, heard - and tasted- from within The Lodge itself. Note: Summer Haven is constantly changing with nature. The Summer Haven river behind the house is largely a sand dune and can many times provide beach access. Due to Tropical Storm Faye erosion at the front, there is now an area of large boulders blocking the beach access points. Although you can walk in between these boulders to access the beach like the locals that live nearby, the nearest easy beach access is approximately 1 mile north at Fort Matanzas National Park. It has (free) paved parking and provides beach access via a meandering boardwalk.

traveler reviews for this daytona beach condo rental

Christmas stay

Review submitted: December 28, 2011   Date of arrival: December 23, 2011

I was disappointed that this was not actually a beach front property. We had to go out the door, around thru the sand river and then to the ocean. The river behind the house is completely gone, leaving only sand and the ocean in front is blocked with enormous stones that cannot be climbed. That said, you can get to the ocean around the bend. The bedroom are small and the twin bedded room is bunk beds and the room is minute. We enjoyed the fireplace and the kitchen was well furnished. Place was not very well dusted, but we did enjoy our stay regardless, although we will look for a different property for next year.

Owners response: Hi Nancy - Thank you for taking the time to share this information with us. As we discuss on the web site, the beach and river at Summer Haven are constantly changing. The river is now a huge sand bar with access to the beach. We appreciate the feedback, and we hope that you will consider renting from us again next time. I'd like to offer you a coupon good for 10% off your next stay. Just enter the coupon code rebook10 when you reserve your rental! Thank you again for your comments.

Dilapidated and dusty

Review submitted: November 2, 2011   Date of arrival: October 22, 2011

This is my 5th time in a Beach Cottages/VPRO property, and I was really disappointed. The house is charming, the beds comfortable, the kitchen sunny and pleasant, but in a world where "presentation is everything," your property manager needs to get his act together. A smashed gate, broken mailbox, ripped screen door and two dead trees lying in the yard greeted me upon arrival. Broken fencing lying in yard, random wood pieces, plastic forks, red drink cups, tattered welcome mat, etc. Inside, the house was clean at a glance, but cobwebs and dustballs coated all textile wall hangings, elk head, fireplace screen, floor vents and corners. Dead lovebugs in many corners. BBQ grill didn't work. No ice in the freezer upon arrival. Not worth the outrageous cleaning and "amenity" fees. I love older properties with character, but the need occasional deep cleaning and to be in better repair. I left The Lodge much cleaner than I found it, despite the terrible vacuum cleaner that sprays more dust than it takes in. I didn't call the property manager because I was so insulted that I would have to point out so many - and such obvious - deficiencies. It would have made my vacation even less pleasant to have to deal with all of that! The location has a view of road construction behind the property and a dried up river. The view down the road has an ugly "road closed" sign. You can't see the ocean from the house at all except from the kitchen window, which had random wood posts leaning in front of it. Last year, The Hut property next door had many similar deficiences inside and out, though it was cleaner.

Owners response: Hi Ann - I just received your feedback and wanted to personally thank you for taking the time to fill out our survey. I apologize for the cleaning and maintenance issues. This is not up to standards at all. I will email you directly on this. I have already contacted my property manager to get these fixed. You and your family are welcome back any time. I want to offer you a coupon good for 10% off your next stay. You can go online to our web site and book using coupon code = rebook10 Just type in .... rebook10 Thank you again.

You have my previous E- Mail

Review submitted: September 21, 2011   Date of arrival: September 16, 2011

The property is represented as something it is is very tattered, tiny bedrooms, awful location due to silted river. As our guest commented, there is old an charming and then there is just old and dilapidated. I spent a lot of time and effort to plan this<br/> special week-end. It was a disaster. Three of our 9 family members just left altogether (allergies) and all of us left a day early. I really feel ripped off/ Sorry

Owners response: Hi Judy - I just received your feedback and wanted to personally thank you for taking the time to fill out our survey. The Lodge is advertised as a 100 year old cottage. It is not a large house, but it is a great location and has been updated. You and your family are welcome back any time. I want to offer you a coupon good for 10% off your next stay. You can go online to our web site and book using coupon code = rebook10 Just type in .... rebook10 Thank you again.
