Thank you for the wonderful weekend we had at your beautiful home. It was so peaceful, with plenty of room for everyone. We were here for a wedding, and it worked out perfectly with memories that will last.

Wonderful setting, excellent house well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine had a wonderful time. Everything was as stated. Grand-kids loved the beach, and even the water. We will return.

Great 5 bedroom beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice beach house right on the ocean and is as advertised. It was clean and comfortable. David at wrenbeachrentals.com was great to work with and responded immediately to inquiries. The jets in the hot tub were amazing and the beach was clean with very little traffic. You can hear the ocean waves lap up from 3 of the ocean-front bedrooms. The double laundry facilities were an added bonus!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Sandy Toes. We are very glad that you had a great time. We agree, the hot tub is the bees knees! As mentioned, there is very little "traffic" on the beach. There really isn't any public beach access nearby, so you will mostly have the beach to yourself! See you next year!

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

Rental was nice, but not nearly what we expected for the price. We had 9 adults, 3 children, and a dog. Even though it says the house accommodates this many, it felt small. We didn't have enough room to eat together or sit in the evenings. The catwalk to the beach had nail coming up in spots that one of the children cut their foot on. There was a big dropoff at the end of the catwalk as there was no bottom step to get onto the beach. The towels smelled of mildew and we found live bugs inside of some. Lighting is lacking throughout the house for evenings when you don't have natural light.

The bunk room was nice for the children. Laundry area was convienent. Kitchen was lacking some items I would expect it to have in order to be "stocked" but it was a great smaller kitchen with updated appliances. Beach was very close and empty while we were there. Not much actual sandy beach area though with the tide being high.

This was a nice rental that just needed a little more attention before guests arrived.

two families with babies and teenagers enjoyed it!

  • 5 of 5

The house is well stocked, clean, everything is well decorated. Proximity to the beach is the winner! The beach is beautiful and clean, weather was gorgeous and no people around, priceless. Hot tub was enjoyed by kids and adults alike. We loved having a game room with bunk beds since we had 5 kids and a baby. Highly recommend.

Best Rental Yet!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer to get together for a family vacation and we could not have been happier with the condition of the property. The house was very well maintained and clean, lots of room and right on the beach! We enjoyed the kitchen and the BBQ grill. We loved visiting St. Augustine also. In the future I would make sure I rent kayaks for the week so we could get a close up view of the dolphins swimming by every morning. My advice, brew a pot of coffee at 6am and go out to the end of the walkway and watch the sunrise, you will not be disappointed.

Sandy Toes and Sweet Beaches

  • 5 of 5

Wren Beach Rental agency has been the best agency we've worked with. We summer at the beach every year and it is great to know that everything we need is taken care of at Sandy Toes. It is great to have the beach to ourselves. The home was very spacious, with clean linens, a great supply of beach towels and every kitchen tool we needed. My teenagers, grandparents and husband all enjoyed themselves. We played games, fished and walked on the beach. Loved going into St. Augustine and taking a chocolate tour at Whetson Chocolate Factory, stopping by the Winery, and having pizza at Pizzalley's on St. George street.
