About Sharon Freeman

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

Why Sharon Freeman chose St. Augustine Area

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....

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!!

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Loved this adorable beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Graduation/Beach weekend

  • 5 of 5

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!

Outdoor area/proximity to beach 10/10! House 7/10.

  • 4 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Oh dear! So sorry about the ants! Twice a year we do see more of them and I've bought new ant traps and put them all around! When the air is so still I also find we get some of those noseeums at the beach. (Normally there's a great breeze and it keeps the bugs away). I will put out some citronella candles for people to use outside and hopefully that will keep them from sneaking indoors! Hopefully you'll visit us again and just let me know what you need and I'll take care of it for you right away! It's my job to try to make everyone have a 5 Star Stay!!

Three out of five

  • 3 of 5

Tastefully decorated and inviting . A short walk to restaurants and shops. Too far of a walk to beach and not really an ocean view. It's about 100 steps to the dunes Another 200 steps to the beach. It's rough when carrying all your beach chairs and umbrellas cooler etc to beach . Nice pool ! Master is upstairs not good for older people and you have to walk through quest bedroom to get pool and laundry . Dryer didn't work well. Ice maker didn't work. Parking wasn't good for two cars . Mattresses need to be replaced not comfortable at all . Remote was missing from one tv. Younger people would like this place . Older folks no way . Owners are extremely nice! Landscaping was beautiful!

Owner's Response: Oh my gosh, I am so sorry you only had a 3 Star stay. Being the 4th house off the ocean I usually have a great oceanview but you are right I went up on the deck and all my neighbors trees have overgrown and are blocking our view! I will get my husband on that right away!! Time for a new dryer and refrigerator I guess also. We had such a busy summer and no one else informed me about the dryer so I will replace it right away. The refrigerator ice maker was on the fritz but I had hoped the cleaning person had filled enough ice trays for you. You know a new dune has formed on the beach so even though I'm so close the beach has gotten larger and I will try and adjust my write up so people understand. Thank you for all your suggestions and I hope to have it all corrected asap!

Great Beachhouse location.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our week at the beach. the location of the property was very close to the beach. The duplex was decorated nice and had plenty of room for the 6 of us. The air upstairs doesn't work very well, so the upstairs remains hot. The owner did bring a stand up fan over that did help one of the bedrooms. The ice maker did not work, just had ice trays to fill for ice. The unit is very clean and all bedrooms are nice size. Over all we had a great experience and enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Deanna, I'm so sorry the upstairs was too warm. These mid 90 temperatures are hotter than usual and I will make sure I correct this issue! I will purchase a fan for the other upstairs bedroom as well and will check on the A/C output. I appreciate you bringing it to my attention as I don't get to stay there myself in the summer months and my customers comfort and happiness is the most important thing to me. Thank you, Sharon.
