Barefootin' Beach Duplex is only 45 barefoot steps to the dune (only 3 houses away)!
House is a Duplex with two separate 3 bedroom units. Rent one or both!!
You can see the ocean from your top floor decks and bedrooms,and then head off to the beach, or just swim in the beautiful heated pool in your backyard and have cocktails on the oceanview deck in the afternoon! A barbecue is provided for poolside BBQ'S.
Newly renovated and decorated with a cozy beach cottage theme by the artist owner, you can curl up on the sofa with a book, watch a movie(some provided), do a puzzle(some provided) or walk over one street to the very popular A street and have a great oceanside meal, shop, or watch the surfers go by.. (you can even do that on your very own front porch.)
On Wednesday's walk to the farmer's market at the pier just blocks away. Downtown, the Oldest City in the USA has sightseeing tours, beautiful restaurants, great shops and lots and lots to do.....
Take your children to the Alligator Farm, Ripley's Believe It or Not, the Splash Park, or Miniature Golf, just a few of the many choices this great little town has to offer.....
My name is Sharon and I am 57 years old. I am a St. Augustine Beach resident (I live a mile from the property) and I used to rent properties here before I actually moved here. That was before the time of being able to see them online! I used to drive here all excited to see what kind of place we were going to get! That is why I want my place to be something that you absolutely LOVE when you arrive!
I love to go to the beach, read, paint and redecorate the beach house!!
I have a husband who lives and works in Miami as a general contractor and two sons who have just graduated college. One lives and works in Miami and one lives and works in Fort Myers. I can't believe I have children this old!!
I love my beach house and I love running this business. I love meeting all the guests and I have acquired many new friends this way!
Sharon Freeman purchased this house in 2007
Actually, I vacationed here in St. Augustine Beach for 23 years before I moved here. I would bring my children and stay with my dad who worked here for the months of April,May and June. When the kids were little, I stayed 6 weeks, as they got older and were in school we had to leave after their 2 week spring vacation. So when we finally owned a property here, I was so excited... I decorated it with a very bright and beachy decor, because I remembered coming here on vacation and being sooooo excited about what our place would look like--(those were the days before online viewing, you just got what you got over the phone) We have lived here now for 5 years and I love St. Augustine Beach as much as a full time resident as I did when I only got to be here a couple weeks a year....
I love our property because it has been newly remodeled, so it is fresh, clean and bright and beachy. I love being able to see the ocean and walk right over the dune to spend the day at the beach. Or to just stay home and float with a good book in the pool....I love our street, because it is quiet and I get to watch the surfers go by on their way to the beach and because it is only one block off of A Street, the hub of activity in St. Augustine Beach. We can walk over to the oceanfront restaurants, or the surf shop and be a part of the happy atmosphere of vacationers....I also love to sit on my oceanview deck with a glass of wine and a book and watch the pelicans fly by, the sun set or the moon rise over the ocean.
This is a comment from my guest that she sent to me, because she could not figure out how to put it in the guestbook herself, so I will just copy it verbatim.....Thank you Kate- "From the moment we arrived at the beach house we were in heaven! The description from Sharon the owner couldn't even describe how perfect the beach house was. She and her family were so accommodatiing in arranging everything needed. The location was amazing and the house was absolutely perfect! We had 4 families stay so it worked out great with the setup of the duplex. Each unit had 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths with the cutest beach decor. The huge decks were perfect for big family lunches and the pool was warm and beautiful. Thank you for the great location to get our families together! We will most definitely return!!
So close to the beach you could hear the waves crashing from the front porch. It was also very convenient to the Fort and the Lighthouse. One of the upstairs TV's did not work and could not find the roll away cot (kids slept on the couch) but it still worked out! Everyone was comfortable. The pool was nice and very warm! Very cozy on the back patio. The owner was very nice and responded quickly with any questions I had. When we go back to the area we will definitely look to see if this listing is available!
The outdoor shower is perfect for getting the sand off the little ones.
The beds were clean and comfortable as was the entire cottage. The Beachcomber is an easy walk across the beach. Overall a perfect barefooten experience. Would definitely return!
I had an awesome stay here with 4 of my adult family members. The pool is a perfect way to relax after a trip to the beach (which was about a 5 minute walk). I was especially surprised by the private, outdoor shower by the pool. Nice way to rinse off after the beach, or to shower under the stars. The pool is a perfect hangout pool, with plenty of seating around the sides. Very large 2nd story balcony was great for night time dinners under the night sky with the ocean sound in the distance. The common areas inside were a little cramped for 5 adults at once, but you don't go to a beach house with a pool to hang out inside! Sharon was great with communication, even when she had to leave town last minute for a family emergency. I would definitely recommend her. You would be hard-pressed to find a house this close to the beach with a pool for a better deal. There's a strong chance we will be back next year Sharon!
Sharon was a great hostess. We communicated regularly and she made sure all of our needs were met. Her beach cottage, is very comfortable and offers the perfect beach atmosphere. Beds were great, I love the nice quality sheets. It was well stocked and has a beautiful pool with nice patio furniture. Short walk to beach, one street over from one of our favorite beach bars the called the Beachcomber. I highly recommend this rental home!
What a wonderful gem! We rented both units and had an amazing time! The pool area was awesome and loved the beach themed decor. The house was a easy walk to the beach (we enjoyed many sunrises) and local restaurants. All of our guests were in love with the house and it served our needs perfectly. We found the accommodations very comfortable (the beds were awesome!) and so many perfect outdoor spaces with the decks and pool area. We will be back! Thank you Sharon for being a wonderful and accommodating hostess!
The house was a great house! Kitchen area is a bit snug, but the bedrooms and living room are nicely sized and decorated and the pool area is AMAZING. The beach is only a few steps away too! the only downsides were there were ants in the kitchen, and 2 of my guests who stayed in the downstairs bedroom woke up with lots of bug bites all over. They did not appear to be bed bug bites, but none the less bugs were a bit of an issue inside. I know it's Florida at the beach, and these things happen, but just my experience.
Overall I'd give it a 8/10!
