Overview

About the property

Large, 1 Bedroom suite, in a small resort, tropical, beachfront setting

Hawksbill Suite is situated in a quiet, oceanfront retreat on nearly 2 acres of natural, dune property with the pristine beaches of Anastasia Island as the front yard. It is located just south of historic St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. A large suite with kitchenette, washer/dryer, HD TV, 50 mbps wireless internet and more. Enjoy beautiful white sand beaches with swimming, surfing, fishing, barbecue in a private, natural setting. We also supply beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, scuba masks for the kids, 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. 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

My wife, our two dogs, and I stayed in the Pelican Cottage. Except for a minor issue with the toilet tending to run, the cottage was very comfortable. There was a nice seating area just outside the cottage. The walkway to the beach was new or near new. Several gopher tortoises live on the property and wander around when the temperature is high enough. There were numerous sea turtle nests on the beach. The beach itself was good.

It was nice not having many people on the property and the beach was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. We chose The Silver Sands because it was smaller and the beach access was so close. It was so nice having a beach bag, cooler and beach chairs available. We definitely would stay there again if we're able to go back to that area of Florida.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for over 2 weeks in February (2017) and loved it, second time to Silver Sands. Quiet part of beach and loved walking around the inlet to Matanzas National Park for both sunrises and sunsets. Washington Oaks park is a must and the BBQ place at Bing's landing. Hawksbill suite has everything you need, very quiet location and Betty and Dana take very good care of you.

Met all expectations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came down from Minnesota looking to have a quiet getaway from the cold of a Minnesota December. Our expectations were exceeded. The unit we stayed in met all of our expectations. The staff that we met were very pleasant and helpful. The beach was very private and easily accessible. The commute to St Augustine was close and easy. The town was welcoming and we found that for a tourist town the prices for eating and attractions were reasonable. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a quiet getaway away from the crowds that a typical beachfront hotel would have.
