Short stay at the beach for a wedding
We needed a short stay to go to my Nephew's wedding in St. Augustine, so we rented Dune Dreams. Jack and Linda were very helpful and flexible in allowing us to stay when we needed. The cottage was so close to St. Augustine and so many other things. We also spent the whole day on the beach the next day and had such a good time. The beach is only a short walk from the cottage and very easy to get to. There is not a walkway at the cottage, which we knew ahead of time, but just one house over is the beach access and it was no problem at all. The cottage itself is older but the inside was very clean, comfortable and bright and all the windows provided a wonderful view of the dunes, ocean and sunrise. The cottage does sit back in the dunes, so the beach view is a little limited but beautiful anyway. They did have a beach umbrella and some boogie boards in the garage and we were able to get both our cars in the garage, which was great! We have grown up going to the beach in this area and it is our favorite beach. Of course we had to follow tradition and go to the Oasis, which is right down the road, for some good food and music that night. Cindy at First Choice Florida Vacation Rentals, was very nice to work with also. Thank you so much!
Not recommended for young children
Our first impression of the house was questionable as we pulled in to the driveway, however, we were pleasantly surprised to walk in to a comfortable and clean home. The first thing we did was walk out back, anxious to get out to the beach. When we couldn't find access or a walkway, we called the management company and were told we had to walk down the street to the beach access. Though the walk is a short one, we were disappointed that we assumed incorrectly that we'd have direct access.
After quickly unpacking and getting our anxious 3 yr old ready for the beach, we were surprised to find no wagon or other useful beach cart we could use to carry our things down the road to the beach. Anyone with a child knows how much "stuff" is required for the beach. Another disappointment was to find there was only one beach chair in the garage for our use, and no cooler. Also, there were few beach towels, and they were very old and worn. Other beach properties we've rented have always been well equipped, which is how our expectations have been set.
The house did not have any plastic dishes, bowls or cups, which is preferable with a small child. Also, there are sticker bushes throughout the backyard, and we quickly determined (the hard way) that our son could only play on the deck. Those painful stickers were embedded in the carpet in the living room and master bedroom, which we also found out the hard way.
If you have any intentions of sleeping in, the blinds in both bedrooms are outdated and do not provide much, if any, of a sun shield. We didn't mind this, as the sunrise is absolutely beautiful to watch from the back deck.
All in all, we enjoyed our short stay in this home. The house is located in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. We felt safe and comfortable. We wouldn't return however, and wouldn't recommend it for families with small children.
