About the property

LUXURIOUS HOME -perfect for large or intimate groups to celebrate time together

Perfect waterfront home for groups, family celebrations or vacations! The house is beautifully appointed with heart pine floors, elegant antiques, fine paintings, even a harpsichord. The living areas are spacious with wonderful flow and openings to the covered lanai, heated saltwater pool with spa and multiple decks overlooking Salt Run and the Atlantic Ocean. Historical downtown St Augustine is just a few minutes (less than 2 miles) away.

Salt Run is a protected harbor just beyond the dune to the Atlantic Ocean. You can be at the beach in minutes, but you won't want to leave the many exhilarating waterfront options, privacy and security my home has to offer in your own backyard. Excellent restaurants are just around the corner or enjoy grilling on the back lanai.

Free bicycles and kayaks, pool, spa and games as well as fishing equipment available for you during your stay. I provide a pass to Anastasia State Park next door for beautiful beach access.

(Reviews on this site cannot be deleted or altered, so you will get an honest idea of the experience)

Salt Run is protected and peaceful for safe kayaking, paddle boarding, skiing & tubing and any kind of boating. It is perfect for entertaining or for your own peaceful retreat.

Sunrise and sunsets are breathtaking! Nights are magical with only the moon, stars and the St Augustine Lighthouse lighting the sky.

The property is professionally treated against mosquitos so you can maximize enjoyable time outside even more.

My home offers a perfect place for a intimate private getaway or for multiple families or friends, giving everyone plenty of space for socializing with the advantage of a floor plan that allows ample privacy. It is a home and location everyone will love❤️

About Sharon Cahoon

I love nature and the privacy and peace my home provides. I also love bring joy to others and doing all I can to show each person how important they are to me.There is nothing more important to me than safety and well being of your family members as well as pets and keeping the house it perfect condition. On Salt Run, the sounds of the surf and sites of nature remind you of the life's simple pleasures. The home is designed in a way that flows well, accommodates groups of all types and sizes while giving everyone plenty of space and privacy. It has very high end furnishings, but not pretentious. I feel proud of call this my home and love sharing it with people who have the same respect.

Sharon Cahoon purchased this house in 2006

Why Sharon Cahoon chose St. Augustine

My home on Salt Run is uniquely private & peaceful with beautiful wildlife yet close to all the St Augustine parks, beaches and attractions. St Augustine's charming, historical downtown area is a short drive or bike ride from the house.I love the fact that it is not a gated community, but a wonderful, eclectic mixture of wonderful neighbors. Once you drive through the gates, of the home, however, you are in your own wonderful world. Please let me know your intentions for the property so we are all on board to make sure you have the best time possible.

What makes this house unique

Drive through the gates into a private paradise for friends and family to enjoy. Wonderful entertaining! Dolphin feeding in Salt Run, birds of all varieties (I love the pink spoonbills and diving pelicans) Anastasia State Park, St Augustine Lighthouse, beach, and almost anything you can imagine is just a short bike ride away. I have enjoyed the music of James Taylor and The Beach Boys from the 3rd floor deck as they played at the amphitheater in the park near my home. Year round, you can enjoy the fireplace, chimneas, the Jacuzzi and heated pool .

This property and its owner are exquisite!

  • 5 of 5

This property and its owner are exquisite! The owner has an amazing gift of hospitality and our family had a brilliant time. We had young children and grandchildren of all ages with us and the house totally lent itself to games and great family fun on the water or within the house itself. The owner could not have been more accommodating and was available if any need had arisen. I highly recommend this beautiful home and I look forward to be able to renting it again!

A beautiful place to spend a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

I could not have been happier with this home. It is perfect for larger groups. There is ample sleeping space, with loads of privacy. The kitchen had every utensil and pot we needed to cook large meals and plenty of eating space for our group to eat all together. The dock has been recently repaired and was in new condition, making it a wonderful spot to spend time sitting, fishing and watching the kids kayak and explore. She even provides the kayak's and fishing rods! Having travelled a long distance for the holiday, it was wonderful to not have to lug all our own towels, linens and such as you do with many other rentals. We literally showed up and were in vacation mode in minutes. I would absolutely recommend this home!

Perfect Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for families! We had several singles, couples, and children staying in the house for a week and it was a blast! The house is so spacious and can sleep 15 very comfortably. Huge kitchen, lots of moving around and sitting space. There's a bar on the second level. 3 levels of porches. We watched the NYE fireworks perfectly from the crow's nest. The pool and spa are excellent. There's a grassy area for the kids to run around.

And the location couldn't have been better! 2 mile walk or drive to the beach, .5 mile walk to a Hawaiian food truck, .5 mile walk to lighthouse, about 1 mile walk to Alligator Farm, 3 miles to Publix, and Old Town is a super quick drive. All the best St. Augustine has to offer!!!

Sharon is the best rental home owner we have ever had. She was super responsive to any questions and incredibly generous with stocking the house of all the comforts of your own home. This is a must rent!!!!

A Wonderful Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We had a full house over Thanksgiving break. The home is beautiful and large and we all had our own space. The open kitchen and dining area was perfect for cooking, entertaining, and playing games. The home is well equipped and Sharon has thought of everything from shampoos, hand soaps, bath soaps, beach towels, etc. We couldn't have asked for a more gracious and hospitable host. The front yard is completely fenced so it was a major bonus for us since we had two furry family members with us. Sharon had baby equipment available for us to use as well. The outdoor space was beautiful and well-suited for grilling and relaxing. The balconies are great for some alone time or enjoying a cup of coffee or tea. The end of the dock had some damage from the hurricane, but looking at the other docks in the area, it faired the best, and was still usable. Overall, I can't say enough about this beautiful home and wonderful host, Sharon. Definitely above and beyond any other vacation rental we have stayed! Sharon even offered to mail us items left behind. We look forward to coming back!

Amazing Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great and there was plenty of room for our large family. Sharon goes above and beyond to make sure her guest have everything they need during the stay. Even when the power went out in part of the city she was in contact with us to make sure we were okay and had everything we needed. The house has a generator so it was like we never lost power at all. We rented the house to use the week of my brother's wedding and my Mom wanted to make sure it would meet our needs, Sharon let her take a tour 8 months prior to our rental date to make sure we'd have everything. It's on a quiet street and very peaceful. I definitely would come back and stay again!

Car: recommended

Every water sport you can think of is ready for you in your backyard. Anastasia State Park and all the historical attractions are an easy bike ride or short car ride away. The St Augustine Amphitheater offers excellent entertainment as well as St Augustine Farmer's Market every Saturday at the Amphitheater from 8:30AM-12:30PM and at the Pier Wednesday morning. It is tempting to stay at the property with so many activities right your own backyard.
