Guestbook comments from the owner

Deby was a great, welcoming host especially considering we arrived in downpour! The place was lovely with a wonderful, private outdoor area. Everything was newly redone inside, and very clean. The location is absolutely ideal - short walk out to the beach or to the river side of the island and short drive into St. Augustine. Would greatly recommend Deby's place!!!

A good find for dog lovers too

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our one week stay. The apartment was very clean and private, the tall-fenced yard was ideal for our dogs and we had a huge driveway. The owners were very friendly and accessible if needed and they are true dog lovers!

The kitchen area was well stocked with disposable dishes and cutlery. It had a modern fridge, toaster and coffee maker. There were lots of quality linens and towels and nice touches including a very informative binder of local restaurant menus and activities. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable as were the two wicker chairs. The small bed was very firm. The ceiling fans were the perfect touch for overnight.

A couple of bistro table and chair sets in the kitchen and bbq areas would make eating more practical and help avoid eating in the bedrooms where the light carpet could be stained. It's unfortunate that there was no kitchen sink or stove but nonetheless it was very well set up to make it workable and local dining spots were numerous. Breakfast was a hard find until we discovered the Village Inn.

There was a nice tub but the shower pressure was on the weak side.

TVs were too small and too high but not a priority while on vacation.

The safest walk to the beach actually takes about 10 minutes and leads to a walkway above the street which runs next to the beach. We enjoyed the Reef restaurant on the beach where our dogs could even join us on the deck overlooking the ocean.

Spotless home , 1 block from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, clean home to stay. 1 block from the beach and a shirt drive into St. Augustine. They have an outdoor shower, which we loved using.

Very dog friendly and the apt. Had treats for my dog.
