Great Host! Cute Apartment! Quiet Beach! Pet Friendly!
Deby communicated wonderfully from the moment we booked and made us feel welcome before we even arrived. She was very accepting of our Labrador mix dog, which was amazing when many places only accept smaller dogs.
The accommodations were very clean and perfect for us - almost like a hotel suite :-) There were plenty of towels for the bathroom, the beach and the dog. Little touches like travel-sized soap, shampoo, body lotion, guide to restaurants, are very thoughtful of the host.
We had no intention to cook, so the lack of kitchen sink and stove/range was no issue for us, but the full sized refrigerator/freezer was perfect for keeping drinks and dog food cool. (Our host ensured we knew there was no formal kitchen before we arrived.) There was a plentiful supply of disposable plates, cups, silverware. Had we wanted to grill food, utensils were provided (along with a wine bottle opener!).
The outdoor shower with hot & cold water located inside the private, fully fenced garden/yard was incredibly convenient, private and safe for human and dog alike. The neighbourhood was very quiet and seemed very safe. We felt comfortable taking our dog for the last walk of the day at 11pm.
The property is only 1 block over from the beach (North Beach was incredibly quiet and pet friendly when we visited). It is also only 5-10 minute drive to Downtown St. Augustine, which is very convenient.
I would stay here again and would recommend to friends, especially pet owners.
Thanks for looking after us!
These guests were wonderful! They were easy to communicate with prior to arrival and during their stay. They were quiet, clean, and very respectful of the property! Their dog was amazingly well behaved and quiet! We would welcome them back anytime!
Absolutely cute and comfortable place to stay
We had a fabulous time staying Barrier Island. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. They ensure that we had everything we needed. Even though their home did not have traditional kitchen it did not impede our stay in anyway. Their place was located very close to the beach with a very convenient walk way. We definitely recommend the place to anyone visiting the area.
Dominique and Matthew, you and Sam were wonderful guests! We are so glad that you chose Barrier Island Retreat for your anniversary get-away. You would be most welcome any time, so please do visit us again soon!
Josie and Deb were awesome.They made sure our stay enjoyable. My daughter and I walked to the beach to collect shells and watch the sunrise. It was perfect.
Thanks for your hospitality Deb!

Great little retreat
My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay here. It was a close walk to the beach, the room was very neat and clean. It was the perfect size for just the two of us, with everything we needed.
Anita, we are so glad that the two of you enjoyed your stay here at Barrier Island Retreat! You were the perfect guests! You're welcome back anytime! Best, Deby & Johnny
We were already planning a trip back before we left!
Our stay was better than expected. The yard is very private, the accommodations were very welcoming and comfortable, and all the personal touches really made our stay special. There were even delicious cupcakes waiting in the refrigerator to celebrate my birthday and milkbones for our dogs! A five minute walk to the beach and ten minutes drive to downtown St Augustine make it a perfect location.
Thank you Deby and Johnny!
Hope to see you again soon.
Brett and Patty

A stone's throw to a nearly private, pristine beach. A short 5 miles to historic old town Saint Augustine or to Guana State Park. Drive the Coastal Highway north to Sawgrass Country Club, or venture to World Golf Village and it's two championship courses. Outlet shopping or world renowned couture shopping at St. Johns Town Center. Take in a concert at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall or a show at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. Walk to local restaurants and bars. Play horseshoes or tennis at the nearby community area.
Please treat this as you would your own.
