What a great getaway by the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this charming getaway by the ocean. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is included and there is charm throughout. We loved our firepit nights and walks on the beach only a short stroll away. The location was perfect. It was on the beach, but only a few minutes from the historic district. We intend to return!

Great seaside bungalow!

  • 4 of 5

We loved out stay at the Blue Horizon. The house was so cute, very clean and exactly what we were looking for. We enjoyed relaxing on the back patio and loved going for walks on the beach, which was only steps away. Perfect location right across the street from a grocery store and only 10 minutes from downtown St. Augustine. Patricia was super sweet and very accommodating. So happy we found this little gem. Would definitely stay here again!

Great place to get away and relax

  • 5 of 5

We had such such a great time here during our stay. Everything is close by and very convenient. Sunrises and sunsets on the beach were amazing. The beach was never crowded and we were able to walk our dogs up and down it. The lifeguard chair was awesome, perfect spot to just sit and watch the ocean. There was an outdoor shower and a hose to rinse off the sand when you came back before getting ready for dinner on the grill. Patricia was very friendly, she asked if we needed anything. If we did she's a call/text/email away. Her dog blue was such a good dog too. The rental was perfect, it had everything we needed and wanted for our vacation. Thank you Patricia we look forward to returning for another stay.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a perfect location. We really enjoyed the ease of getting to the beach, just right in the back yard. Also the convenience of the Publix right across the street. Easy drive in to St. Augustine. We were lucky enough to see a manatee and a manta-ray at the beach. Also found many shark teeth. Our girls loved the life guard chair on the back yard overlooking the beach.

It was a great vacation for our family (three daughters, 11, 13 and 16).
