Amazing house and location!

  • 5 of 5

If you are in the St. Augustine area Blue Horizon is the perfect place to stay. It is immaculate with many many extra amenities. You feel secluded back from the highway but it is a short walk to the Publix and some restaurants and right across the bridge to St. Augustine.

The beach is right in front of you and sitting in the lifeguard chair watching the surf and the ospreys is a must. Pat lives quietly upstairs and is charming and helpful. We loved walking the beach and also walking around historic St. Augustine. We had a fantatic time!

Cannot see beach and ocean sitting on back porch although Beachfront property

  • 3 of 5

I was wanting to view the beach and ocean from my Beachfront rental. The rental unit is on the ground floor and there is a huge dune blocking the entire view. They do have an elevated chair near the dune, which, if you climb to top, you can see the ocean. I would imagine that the upper level, inhabited by the owner, has a nice view. The rental is clean. It has one bedroom with a king-size bed and a second bedroom with a comfortable pull out bed with an elevated bed over that. You use a step ladder to access this bed. The kitchen is well stocked, a nice washer and dryer and one bathroom. There is a nice area outside the back door, although no ocean view. There is a fire pit, where you could burn a fire. There is a direct path to the beach, which is at the front of this property. If you want a Beachfront property without a view from the rental, this place is for you. The landlady is very nice and has a sweet large dog, Blue, who is very gentle. We had rainy, overcast, windy days for the most part. Perhaps, early October is not an ideal time to go to the beach in St.Augustine.

Owner's Response: Enjoyed having this fun group of women cousins come stay. Yes, I have a healthy dune with good vegetation in front of the house. This is assurance that my house survives the hurricane season. I am thankful for this as I have no need to build an unnatural sea wall to protect my property like many home owners north of me have done. Also the dunes are nesting grounds for sea turtles. LOVE & PROTECT THE SEA DUNES :)

Cute, cozy getaway

  • 4 of 5

This oceanfront property has private beach access which is great! The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Publix is just across the street and there are some good restaurants within walking distance. There were only two things that were less than ideal: there is a large covered patio to enjoy, however when it rains the rain comes through the ceiling (which is the wooden deck of the upstairs) and everything gets drenched. So you can't sit outside while it's raining and everything you set out to dry from the beach gets soaked. I know it's unavoidable but it was a bummer. Also, with the owner living upstairs we could hear her moving around quite a bit and early in the morning. I understand that is also mostly unavoidable. Overall, the house was great and we had a very nice vacation. I would recommend this beach property to friends.
