Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Saint Augustine - Love Shack

Five MASTER SUITE Oceanfront pool home with large deck and outdoor living.

Newly renovated in April 2014 with all King Sized Beds (New mattresses), insulation, drywall, electric, paint, flooring, ductwork, HVAC, plumbing, appliances, everything! We gutted this house down to the studs and made this into our retirement home for the future. Three master suites all share a large Trex deck with direct access/views of the ocean. One other upstairs master suite plus a ground level master suite provide privacy for your guests. Every room has it's own private bathroom. The ground level master suite has a handicap shower perfect for wheel chairs and the elderly. This is a non-driving portion of St. Augustine Beach and sleeps 10-14 comfortably. The regraded, newly sodded fenced yard is perfect for croquet, badminton or whiffle ball. The new fire pit allows you to relax with your guest by a roaring fire. Several shaded areas are perfect for entertaining. Outdoor speakers provide your favorite music. Sit under the deck or lounge area on rainy days while you wait for the inevitable St. Augustine sun to come back out or lay in the hammock in the gazebo as you watch the sun rise. Please note that we rent this home ourselves and do not use any other contracts from any other source including available holidays 2009.

About Lynne Campbell

We purchased this home in December of 2013. We have totally renovated it with all new King size mattresses and are doing these improvements as if it was our primary residence. We replaced all drywall, insulation, ductwork, HVAC system, electrical, plumbing, appliances, siding, windows, doors, etc. The pool has been resurfaced and switched to a saltwater pool. The deck was completely ripped off and replaced. There is nothing left from the old house except for the foundation and framing. We want renters that are looking for new, clean and upscale.

Lynne Campbell purchased this house in 2013

Why Lynne Campbell chose St. Augustine Area

We would like to retire in St. Augustine one day and love the area. We first experienced St. Augustine over 10 years ago when our daughters were looking at colleges. They both ended up at Flagler College.

Just steps to the beach & walking to our favorite restaurants

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this property because of it's large oceanfront lots which make it ideal for large family vacations. Sleeps up to 14 people.

A place with Everything - for Everyone

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to describe the beauty, comfort and location of this Brand new 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom Vacation Paradise. (All Master Suites). It is the most Gorgeous Vacation spot we could have ever imagined. A beautiful ride from the JAX airport to the paradise; The City of St. Augustine, FL.! Arrive at the Love Shack, a Beachfront Home with every amenity you can think of. A built in Salt water pool with a large covered bar, a hammock in the Gazebo overlooking the Ocean, a Grill for outdoor cooking, a large back yard including a fire pit. The beach is just a short walk from the back yard and it is sweet!!! A fully stocked kitchen, large living room and televisions in every room, immaculate linens includes bath towels. There is so much to see and do, and great restaurants, some within walking distance. I could go on for ever, but there is only some much time. :>)

Incredible Trip

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What-a-place! The love shack was the perfect home for our family vacation. We have traveled to St. Augustine Beach for over 10 years and this was by far the best home we have rented. The multiple master suites worked perfectly for our family! We spent most days hanging by the pool and outdoor bar enjoying our surroundings. The beach was only a stone throw distance but the Love Shack has an incredible yard with pool/gazebo/fire-pit - we never wanted to leave the property! You can't beat the central location on the beach, as restaurants and attractions are close by. The kitchen had everything we needed and more! The kitchen table fit our entire family, which is very rare.

I would recommend anyone looking for a rental property to check out the Love Shack. We have already booked our trip for the coming season and we look forward to returning! Many thanks to the love shack owners and caretakers for an enjoyable stay - see you soon!

Retirement Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My family got together to celebrate my recent retirement. We could not have found a better place ! The house is beautiful, spacious, and very accommodating. The caretakers were great and very nice. The saltwater pool is a real treat. We spent hours in the gazebo enjoying the ocean breeze and view of the water. There are so many amenities ! We have spent many summer vacations at St. Augustine Beach and this location is exceptionally good. There are a lot of things within walking distance, and the traffic is much better than it is further south on A1A. We are already thinking about our next visit.

The Love Shack 2016

  • 5 of 5

Our group of high school friends, in our 60s and 70s, have been meeting annually, for the past several years, to enjoy the beach along the east coast. We travel from Oregon, Texas, Connecticut, Virginia and Colorado. There are five couples and our main requirement is to have a house with five bedrooms, with five bathrooms inside each. We found our dream house in the Love Shack this year.

Lynne and Tim were very gracious and easy to deal with regarding our reservations. They have created an extremely comfortable and functional home that accommodated our group quite nicely. We had privacy when needed and also had plenty of room to gather as a group.

Their caretakers, Jen and Stacy, were very friendly and helpful. We recognized the pride they took in their job, when we saw how well they took care of the Love Shack. They also took very good care of us.

The pool became a wonderful retreat with plenty of seating and a bar area attached. The beach was only steps away and the sand was beautiful. A lovely beach to walk on with the added enjoyment of the peacefulness of the ocean. The upper deck of the house offered a magnificent view of the sunrises. The entire atmosphere seemed enchanted.

We enjoyed the Love Shack so much that we have booked it for the next two years. It is truly a heartwarming place.

Thank you Lynne, Tim, Jen and Stacy. See you next year!

Owner's Response: Dear Connie, Hello! Thanks for your stellar review of our home! We are so happy that you and your high school friends had a good time at the Love Shack & are coming back to vacation with us again! I really was thrilled when I was able to convert the home into a 5 master suite home. Perfect for 5 couple to get away & have their privacy, but also space to enjoy each other's company. We love to have our HS gang to visit as well. Jen & Stacy enjoyed meeting you all & look forward to having you all back. Thanks for taking such good care of our home! Thanks, Lynne & Tim

This wonderful oceanfront pool home with separate caretaker's cottage situated on three lots (2 are oceanfront) in the most private and beautiful part of St. Augustine Beach. Our caretakers live next door to the property and even if something is not working in this brand new renovated home, you are only a text away from getting it attended. This home is perfect for outdoor entertaining with a large oceanfront pool and gazebo with hammock as well as a large yard to enjoy the view and play bocce ball! In addition, this home is located on the non-driving portion of St. Augustine Beach so you won't have to worry about cars blocking your view!

Best of all, access to the beach couldn't be easier. There are no lengthy walkovers or long hikes over dunes. Walk directly onto the beach from you lawn. The main house has been completely renovated with 5 King size Master Suites with NEW MATTRESSES April 2014! All appliances, furniture, bedding and linens are new. Speakers on the deck, under the deck, poolside, kitchen and family room make sure you have your favorite music wherever you go. Bring you own cd's, choose one from the selection provided or plug your ipad into the system and listen to Pandora. There are caretakers next door to make sure you never have any problems.

Located on Anastasia Island in the town limits of St. Augustine Beach, approximately 5 miles south of historic downtown St. Augustine.

Several five star restaurants and bars within walking distance. Don't forget the Farmer's Market at the pier (on Wednesdays) just 5 streets away. And for the children, visit the Alligator Farm and the Fountain of Youth. Adults will love browsing through shops in the oldest city in the US.
