Why John Lawrence chose St. Augustine Area

Located in one of the most beautiful and historical areas in Florida. St. Augustine is the oldest city in America. The area has some of the nicest and interesting people you will ever meet. I would like to share the Summer Haven experience with you.

What makes this house unique

Peaceful, tranquil with some of the best fishing, surfing and sun bathing beaches in Florida. Many interesting attractions nearby for families to enjoy. Swim with the dolphins at Marineland or see the sights in St. Augustine. Visit the Old Spanish Fort at Fort Matanzas(free to the public) 1 mile north on A1A or just relax on the pristine beach across the street from home. Also enjoy some of the best seaford restaurants in Florida. My favorite is the famous Matanzas Innlet Restaurant which is walking distance from the home. The outside deck overlooks the Matanzas Inlet and Atlantic Ocean. Live Music and the great seafood makes for a great afternoon or evening.

The home is located within easy driving distance to several major attractions and major events. Come have some fun!

Great place and location

  • 5 of 5

The property is great. It is kept very well maintained and a very confortable place. It is a short walk to the beach and a short drive down to all the attractions. The owner was always ready to answer any questions that we had and had great suggestions.

The best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic vacation at Summer Haven. The house is always clean and fully stocked with everything you need to enjoy your vacation. This was our third year staying at Songbird and look forward to many more years to come. Rocky is great to work with and makes sure that you have everything you need to have a comfortable stay. We definitely stretched out and relaxed. The beaches never disappoint and the shops and restaurants in downtown St Augustine are wonderful. Always sad to leave and excited to return. Rocky, many thanks again for a wonderful place to stay.

Wonderful Spring Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family trip to the St. Augustine area, and we really enjoyed our stay at Songbird. The house is very clean and comfortable, with a huge DVD collection and well stocked kitchen. We brought our dogs and took them for walks each morning down to the beach, even saw a gopher tortoise one day! We did a lot of sightseeing including the downtown St. Augustine trolley tour, a ghost tour, Alligator Farm, Castillo de San Marcos, and Fort Matanzas. We also enjoyed the beach next to Marineland. The owner was super to work with and we would love to return in the future!

Extremely wonderful vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that this is by far the best, most relaxing vacation I have ever been on with my family. Ages ranged from 50-90 years. There were 6 people including myself. Everyone spoke of how comfortable, roomy, extremely clean, and such easy access to restaurants and points of interest( Marineland, Fort Matanzas) in St. Augustine and Summerhaven.It is very close to the beach and we had the beach pretty much to ourselves. You really couldn't ask for anything better. If you want to rent a place that has just about everything under the sun to make your stay an enjoyable, no stress stay, this is your place. I have been all over the United States and over seas all over and have stayed in many places, but I have never stayed in a place That I didn't have to run to the store for something. This is the best stocked rental I have ever had the privelege to stay in. John is very quick in responding to his messages. He makes sure that your stay meets all of your expectations of a wonderful vacation. I highly recommend the "Songbird" to everyone of all ages. My family and I will be back for another wonderful relaxing vacay. Thanks again John for everything.

Another incredible stay at Songbird in Summer Haven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying in Summer Haven at Songbird and once again it did not disappoint. Rocky is great to work with and makes sure that you have everything you need to have a comfortable stay, there was no question where we would be staying on my 30th year visiting St Augustine. The house is always clean and well prepared for vacationers with plenty of space to stretch out and relax. The beaches are a 2 minute drive and downtown St Augustine is only 20 minutes away. We are always sad to leave and are already looking forward to next year. Rocky, thanks again for a wonderful place to stay and look forward to staying with you next year.

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home! It was perfect for us! The location was great for my family. Love how close to the beach we were! The beach was not real crowded which we loved! It wasn't too far of a drive to downtown St. Augustine. We drove there about every other day. The house was very spacious and private! The home had plenty of extra sheets and towels. The kitchen was well stocked which was great! We loved the back deck! The owner was very nice and easy to deal with! He answered any emails and phone calls quickly! He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed! We would definitely rent this house again!
