Overview

About the property

Sleeps 12. Pool and hot tub arriving Summer 2018

"Surf's Up" is a magnificent, ocean front home looking over the vast St. Augustine dunes and the Atlantic Ocean. Walking into the foyer, you are greeted by soft colors, beachy decor, and beautiful pine floors. The main living area is on the 1st floor. The living room, dining area, and kitchen look out over the wrap-around deck and the beach in the back ground. The living room is warm and inviting with its many windows allowing plenty of natural light. The sofas and chairs allow guests to gather around a decorative fireplace to socialize, or watch their favorite show on one of many TVs in the house. There is a powder room off of the living room. Next to the living room is the sun room with two day beds, sitting area, and another TV. The sun room can be used as a 6th bedroom, however it does not have a closet. The dining table has comfortable seating for 8, but you could squeeze in 10 or 12 if needed. The kitchen is spacious and fully loaded with everything you need to make your favorite meals. The chef in your group will appreciate the granite counters, wood cabinets, stainless appliances, and plenty of prep space. We have a side by side refrigerator with water and ice dispenser in the door.

On the main level is a fabulous master suite. Here, guests will find a comfy king bed. There is also a nautically-themed desk with work space, and high speed wireless Internet. There is a flat screen TV mounted on the wall in the bedroom. The master bath is very spacious, with a double vanity, deep soaking tub, separate shower and enclosed toilet room. The back deck wraps from the back of the house around to the master bedroom. Guests have deck access from the master bedroom.

On the 2nd floor, there are four more bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. There is a second master bedroom upstairs. It is on the ocean side of the house and features a king bed, TV, and a large, private bathroom with a walk-in shower. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed, TV, and ocean views. The 4th bedroom is also on the ocean side. It has 2 twin beds and a TV with a DVD/VCR player. The 5th bedroom has two more twin beds. Bedrooms 3,4, and 5 share a full bathroom which features a pedestal sink and a shower/tub combo.

On the ground level, the back deck offers a sunny place to sit and watch the passing pelicans, or to lay out in the sun and work on your tan. There is a patio table with seating for six, high top chairs with an umbrella, and a couple of recliners. There is a separate laundry room on the ground level. It has two sets of washers and dryers. There is also a bathroom in the laundry room. It has a shower, sink, and toilet. The beach is accessible via a public walkway just a few steps from the house. When you return from the beach, we have a private, outdoor shower closet!

There is plenty of parking space here. We have covered carport parking for two cars, and at least 4 more cars can park in the driveway. We have a small garage, but it is used mainly to store beach toys (surf boards, beach chairs, etc). Also 7 beach cruiser bikes to tool around the beach or ride to local shop. Helmets also supplied.

"Surf's Up" is ready and waiting for you to visit. Call or email us to book your vacation today!

About Bill Black

Our family has loved going to St. Augustine Beach for many years. We never get tired of being there and enjoying all the wonderful things to do in the area.

Bill Black purchased this house in 2017

Why Bill Black chose St Augustine

I looked at many homes to purchase this past spring. I fell in love with this house as it makes you feel so warm and welcome.There is a real cozy feeling and many areas for socializing with family and friends. I also hope to add a pool, hot tub, and fire pit in the Spring of 2018 to make it a perfect beach house with everything you need.

What makes this house unique

I will never get tired of enjoying each day we have spent here together. Every visit leads to wanting to come back even longer the next time. The hard wood floors and knowing the history of this house and all it's wonderful features is something I never thought I would find.

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had our 19th annual Dee Day event here this weekend. This was the first time we stayed in St. Augustine. The house was great. We were pleased with the space. Loved the twin rooms and bonus twins on first floor. The kitchen was well equip and even had condiments, paper plates and more. More than adequate space for our party of 8 and 1/2. We didn't even use all the perks - bikes and paddle boards, outdoor shower. We actually got to check in a little early (thanks Bill) and we met the housekeeper who was great! My only wish was a covered deck to enjoy the beach view, but you can't have everything. Great rental - awesome house! You will love it here. So many extras too -$25 gift certificate for Ale house, free koozies, beach towels, books to read - this place has it all. Thanks for sharing with us!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Bills home. It was lovely! The sheets are all high quality and there was more than enough towels, they even had beach towels for us. The garage was full of boogie boards, surf boards and beach chairs, even a bike! The kitchen had enough dishes and pans for our large group and even had a professional waffle maker that we used and loved.

Owner's Response: Dear Jennifer, Thanks for your kind words. I think you left the house cleaner than when you came. I am glad you used the waffle maker and hope you will visit Surf's Up again very soon. Bill

Great House for Making Memories

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a special home where great memories are made. As a group of female business owners, we appreciated the time to work together on our businesses, brainstorm new ideas and recharge in such an amazing space. The large table in the dining room and outside is perfect for big family-style dinners. The location is close to great restaurants and coffee shops. It's very spacious and has a blend of character and modern charm.

Owner's Response: Great to hear that you and your party had a great time. I hope you feel like it was your home during your visit and that you will be able to make more memories soon at Surf's Up.
