Not a condo scene!! 2 night or longer rental only. If renting for more that 2 weeks, additional cleaning fees apply. Every 10 days a cleaning day will be added. Each cleaning is $100. This beautiful free standing cottage is nestled quietly away one block from a pristine, white sand beach in Historical Butler Beach, Florida. It has as beautiful private, gated, small maintained back yard. The home is completely furnished. There is a washer/dryer, internet/wifi, Direct TV, and all usual appliances including a dishwasher. Many appliances to make you feel like you could cook about anything! I have tastefully decorated and maintained the house. Views are unobstructed into the back yard from the large living area. It is very private and quiet. All is on ground level with a small step up to the front and back door. Grab bars in the 2 bathrooms for safety. The beach is a one block stroll with no major streets to cross as the apartment is east of A1A. Now that Mary Street is the closest entrance to the beach due to Hurricane repairs up to A street, the cottage is very desirable as you keep your car at home, use the provided wagon to go to the beach 2 minutes stroll . Historical St. Augustine, the oldest town in the United States, is a 10 minute car ride with restaurants, shopping and site seeing tours. There are also restaurants right there in the area of the apartment as well. Located just one block across A1A is a wonderful boat ramp in if you wish to bring a boat or kayaks. You launch free from there. For anyone who needs at least a month to get away monthly rentals are also available. The Crescent Moon (a 1/1 cottage ) is in the front of the Ooo Laa Laaah but all is private and quiet. The HE Maytag washer dryer is shared with the Crescent Moon. Comfortable beds and furniture. I work hard to make your stay perfect. Great deal for those who love the quiet and are having trouble finding a nice place to vacation with their pets. A limit of 2 pets at the Ooo Laa Laaah. PETS ARE FREE

About Martie McLean
I'm 70 years old and I live in Ocala, Florida. I have rented the front of the property for 6 years and have had fantastic reviews through other vacation websites. I also have a rental at Dekle Beach Florida (vacationrentals #7040694) that keeps me busy during scalloping season. I take great pride in my beautiful places and am very responsive to any of our guests' needs. I do not live locally but can be there in 2 hours. I have a team of folks that help me with any issues you may encounter. I am available by phone but especially by email. The lovely apartment is tastefully decorated and fully furnished. I want nothing more than for you to have a wonderful time at Ooo Laa Laaah and the Crescent Moon.

Why Martie McLean chose Saint Augustine
Just loved the backyard and the house. The beach is my favorite and private and eco friendly. The property is very quiet. Pets are welcome, too.

This home was pleasing to the eye and comfortable to sleep! Quiet neighborhood
Our stay was a great overall experience in this lovely home. Our dog loved the yard, the beach and also a park to chase the ball. We saw horseback riding on the beach too. Great location
Great access to beach
my two dogs loved the fenced in back yard, and the very short walk to the beach. The house was well suited for us and we had everything we needed. Kitchen area very spacious. Every place is a short drive. If your thinking about visiting St Augustine and have pets this is the place to stay, we loved it.
Cozy and Convenient
We really enjoyed our stay. Our dogs had ample yard to run in and chase lizards. Very close to the beach and had all amenities we needed. We were close to restaurants and site seeing in St. Augustine. Sand toys, chairs and wagon available. Martie was a gracious hostess and was there for our needs. She is a sweet lady. I would recommend staying here. You wouldn't be disappointed.
What a nice review! Thank you for mentioning the sand toys, I feel like I have a store full! I love that your dogs enjoyed the back yard. Enough lizards for all to chase. Please come back!
A lovely, fun, and very clean accommodation.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The house fits our needs perfectly. The beach is close, and restaurants are an easy drive away. We loved the comfortable furniture and the charming decor. Our poodle also enjoyed the back yard and the walks on the nearby beach. We plan to return whenever possible.
Perfect family trip!
What a wonderful family vacation we had staying in Martie's charming and clean home! The cottage was a short walk away from the pristine, lifeguarded beach, but still just a small driving distance from all the other things we love in St. Augustine. Parking was ample for our two grown daughters to visit with their families, and we also enjoyed the quiet and safe feel of the neighborhood and the privacy of the backyard. The listing description was accurate, and we especially appreciated the ease in which we could haul things to the beach in the cart and wagon. Overall, Martie was a wonderful hostess and we hope to visit again in the future.
Hi, Nancy! What a lovely and perfect review. It is what I strive to provide.
So much character and charm!
Totally loved this quaint little cottage. It had everything we needed to make us feel comfortable. My 15 year old granddaughter may not totally agree with me...she says the only thing missing was a full length mirror so she could check out her attire for the day :) The beach was unbelievably close and we ate at so many great restaurants that we're all within a couple miles of the cottage! Hope to stay there again next time we go to Florida.
I like the idea of the full length mirror. I will work on that. Martie
