About Susan Huffman

I grew up in Florida, moved to NYC, Philadelphia & Santa Fe, NM for 23 years prior to moving back to St. Augustine in 1995. I was a former professional dancer and owned a physical therapy and Pilates wellness center in St. Augustine for 15 years. I recently moved back to Northern New Mexico but still call St. Augustine my home.

Susan Huffman purchased this house in 1995

Why Susan Huffman chose St. Augustine Area

Conveniently located between St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra. My home offers easy access to I 95, outlet malls, golf, water sports and historical sites. Within walking distance of three waterfront restaurants. Two miles from the Vilano Town Center with Publix, a salon, dry cleaning, restaurants, beach wear, a water park and fishing pier. Boat rentals just over the Vilano Bridge.

What makes this house unique

Open floor plan with great ocean views from every room. Walk out your back door down the steps to the beach. This property is in an established neighborhood of single family homes. No dwellings over 35 feet high from Vilano Beach to Ponte Vedra Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family. This week has been very Peaceful and Relaxing. We had everything we would need and as usual I over packed:)

My guys are musicians and the acoustics of the home are great! They loved your mini xylophone, they played it all week. Also, the sunrises over the ocean are amazing! Our beach in N.C. is south facing so we were super excited about the sunrises.

Thank you again for sharing your home with us. And as 2 Peter 1:2 says, May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

Our stay in Susan Huffman's property in St Augustine was amazing.

The house was clean, well stocked, and beautifully decorated. The beach is right outside and is clean and beautiful. St. Augustine is a 10 minute drive.

Beautiful home on Villano Beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous home on the beach. Totally appreciated that the kitchen was stocked with seasoning, oil, vinegar and the basics for coffee.....so helpful!! My only suggestion would be different mattresses on the beds. i would totally recommend anyone to stay at this fabulous vacation home. And my entire family LOVED the Zen sand pendulum.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review! I have Sleep Number mattresses so my guests can adjust the firmness to their liking. Perhaps it wasn't working while you were there. Please let me know if that was the case. I hope you will consider returning again in the future.

We had a great time at Susan's home, we thank you for sharing it with us. Your house was immaculate and stocked with everything one needs from dishes to towels to books...we had a great time and sighted a school of dolphins almost every day. Again, thank you for sharing your home and we would rent it again.

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

Vacation was great, home was perfect. We had 4 small children and this house set up great for them. The kids had a ton of fun digging in the sand and searching for spooky ghost crabs/ starfish, they found several. Very convenient location to St. Augustine and the local Publix. The beach is less than 40 ft away and is very private with plenty of space. Hottub was a great feature, it worked perfect and was hot! Our dogs had a blast as well.

Wonderful and relaxing home.

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost twelve weeks in Susan's home and were more than happy. It felt like home. If there was any issue Susan took care of immediately. She did everything to make us comfortable. The house is very easy to be in. There are two separate master suites which was ideal. The view from the oversized Windows made our day. How can you beat the Atlantic every day. We enjoyed the hot tub everyday no matter the temperature. The house has everything you need to cook . We really enjoyed the location on Villanova Beach- not built up with huge restaurants and hotels.You walk on the beach and hardly see anyone. We will be back. Rent this house you won't be disappointed.
