Overview

About the property

Large, 2 Bedroom cottage, on a small, beachfront resort

Kemp's cottage is situated in a quiet, oceanfront retreat on nearly 2 acres of natural, dune property with the pristine beaches of Anastasia Island. A perfect place for the person that enjoys walks through a natural environment, the beach, swimming and all the area has to offer. It is located just south of historic St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. Originally, this was the owners house and they built additional units starting at the back corner of the house which have now been configured into suites. Kemp's Cottage was entirely renovated in 2013 with a new kitchen, washer/dryer, HD TV, 50 mbps wireless internet and more. Note, the fireplace is not operational. Enjoy beautiful white sand beaches with swimming, surfing, fishing, barbecue in a private, natural setting. We also supply beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, fishing gear, small cooler, carts to tote down the beach path and much more.

With only 2 cottages and 3 suites on the entire oceanfront property, it feels like your own, private tropical escape. Pelican Cottage, Kemp's Cottage, Hawksbill Suite, Monarch Suite and Ridley Suite are all listed on VRBO and available for rental starting in June 2013. Choose to view all listings below for more information. The extensive renovations included replacing most of the systems, insulation and soundproofing, new windows, doors, bathrooms and kitchens, providing luxurious accommodations to the perfect St. Augustine, beachfront vacation.

The newly landscaped property includes many tall palms, flowering tropical plants and places to relax. When you follow the path to the beach you'll come across many native plants and will get to know the original residents of the land including the gopher tortoise, the wildlife that their burrows support, the monarch butterflies as they migrate, and many species of birds. Lounge in the courtyard, cool off in the pristine waters of Crescent Beach, surf at one of the best surfing beaches in Florida, visit one of the many great restaurants, or cook in your well-equipped kitchen.

If you need something, ask our helpful onsite staff, call or email, we are there to make sure your time at The Silver Sands is second to none.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Trip Advisor:



My wife and I spent a week in the newly renovated Kemps Cottage - - it was perfect. The pristine beach is a quick walk over the dune line and the many activities of old Saint Augustine are just up the road. Everything from appliances to furniture to tile was new and first rate. We had guests visit virtually every day and all commented on the "Beach Cottage" charm of the cottage. We'll be back!



Room Tip: You can't miss on any of the suites or cottages. It's only a question of size and number of...

Great management, accommodations and location!

  • 5 of 5

Kemps cottage is not only adorable and well appointed, it is a great location if you're looking for a quiet retreat. This condo is ON the beach but does require a short walk over the sand dunes where if you're lucky you will see a few turtles or bunnies. The beach is pristine! Vehicles are able to drive on the beach however that area is marked off. I will definitely be booking Kemps cottage for any future stays in St. Augustine.

Lastly, I'd just like to commend the management of this property, they are exceptional!! They were available on site everyday and were so accommodating!

Rainy Days Rainy Nights

  • 5 of 5

Kemp' Cottage is stellar! The weather, however was not. We're very glad that we were comfy and cozy in this great space for the 2 out of 5 days of our stay that gave us torrential rain and high winds. If you have to be stuck inside, Kemp's Cottage is a great place to be.

Perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Kemp's cottage was delightful! The cottage is cute, very clean and tastefully updated. Nice crisp clean cotton linens on all beds, bunches of white towels, huge stack of blue and white striped beach towels, and beach towel bag. Great washer and dryer with detergent and dry sheets allowed us to keep towels and swimming suits ready for the next day! The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook breakfast and dinners and very organized. Rooms were spacious with plenty of room for the 5 of us. The property is like a step back in time in a very good way; peaceful atmosphere, nice outside porch, easy access to the beach, great beach accessories (beach chairs, mats, umbrellas, etc.). We had a great time and would return again.
