About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

A beautiful and very cozy 3 bedroom home situated right by a golf course in st. Augustine area. A huge screened patio at the back with a private swimming pool, hot tub and lots of open space under the big screened area and also an outside area under a roof. The pool is not heated but the hot tub is new as of March 2014. You can choose to be in the sun or stay in the shadow under the roof where there is a table, 6 chairs, lounges and the hot tub. A good grill for cooking outside.

The house is in a quiet area so it is perfect for people looking for a relaxed atmosphere. However if you are looking to stay up late or partying our home is not the right choice! This home is better suited for families or couples looking to relax.

About Rurik Vatnarsson

We fell in love with St. Augustine and the surrounding area in 2005 when we were studying and travelling in the area. Spacious beaches, the intracoastal is great for boating, and such, great golf courses, restaurants, premium outlets and the great nature and weather.

Rurik Vatnarsson purchased this house in 2005

Why Rurik Vatnarsson chose Elkton

We fell in love with this property the minute we walked in the first time when it was for sale in 2005 and bought it two days later. We like the view at the back to the golf course, water and woods.

What makes this house unique

The location is great right by the golf course. Good view out back to the golf course facing the sunset, and the screened patio at the back is unusually spacious with the swimming pool, hot tub and a lot of space to relax in the sun all day or to sit at the table to have a barbecue etc.

Exactly what I was hoping for

My wife, our 10 year old twins, and I had a great time playing in the pool in between trips to the beach.

Very nice place.

  • 5 of 5

Great place in a great location. It was close to the sights in town. We used the hot tub a lot. The pool, unfortunately, was freezing in mid-April. That was the only down side.

Lovely quiet location with open outlook on to golf course

  • 4 of 5

After a busy week further south, we enjoyed a very relaxing week in this villa. It was comfortable with a larger than usual pool area overlooking the golf course.

We enjoyed visits to nearby St Augustine , Sawgrass and Jacksonville.

Rurik, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and was extremely accommodating when we had to change our travel plans due to the hurricane.

Very nice & Relaxing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This Property made for a nice relaxing and private getaway for my family and I. It was very accommodating and stocked very well with starter supplies. The neighborhood is quite quiet, but very friendly neighbors. All of our needs were and more. We certainly felt at home. We were within 20 mins to the beach, shopping, and dining. The booking process was very easy with the owner. He was very quick with response. Likewise, Tina was very pleasant to work with. We didn't have any trouble or complaints for this rental. We are planning to visit again.

Quiet And Peaceful Home in the St Georges Golf Club Community

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 weeks at this wonderful winter vacation house in Elkton, Florida and enjoyed it immensely. After a day in town exploring it was always so nice to sit on the lanai by the pool and watch the setting sun. The golf course provides a tranquil setting to unwind, relax and watch the golfers playing through. We don't play golf but we think learned quite a bit from just observing. The house was perfect with everything one might need in a vacation rental house. The owner is always quick to reply to any questions or concerns and the local house manager is only a text away. We have rented in other parts of Florida and this is one of the nicest homes we have found in a lovely neighborhood with friendly neighbors. St Augustine has so much to do and see that it's always fun to go into town and explore. The beaches are fabulous with beautiful dunes, clean white sand, easy access and are dog friendly. If you go to Fort Matanza's State Beach, there are no condo's or hotels, just natural dunes and beach. The weather was perfect. Warm and sunny during the day and cool at night. We liked it so much we are renting again in 2018.

Great home just far enough away from the crowds.

  • 4 of 5

Nice quiet home with air conditioning. House was pretty clean,although it needed a deep clean you could tell it was a rental house. It has everything you need for a stay,good kitchen with pots pans coffee maker dishwasher. Washer and dryer was great for doing laundry. Comfortable beds,and living room was also a wonderful treat. There wasn't too much to complain about other than i wishthe pool was heated. Our stay was in march so the pool was ridiculously cold! We were only able to soak our legs in it. So instead of swimming we soaked in the hot tub which was nice after walking all day in town. The other thing was the blinds didn't work in the bedroom and kitchen area,so we had to be on the lookout for the golfers in the backyard. All in all I would definitely stay here again the next time we go to St. Augustine.
