About John and Pat O'Brien

We moved to St. Augustine North City area in 2005 from Point Lookout, NY after friends of ours moved here and introduced us to this wonderful place. We searched for a double lot near the beach where we could build a fabulous home for us and a unique vacation rental next door. We wanted to live next to our rental so we could be available to our guests if needed yet private for us and our guests. After 1 1/2 years of designing and building we accomplished our goal and hope you love St. Augustine beach and our house as much as we do.

John and Pat O'Brien purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

We love the location because you can walk to restaurants and hear the ocean from the house. We like that our beach is on the side of the beach where cars are not allowed. We are on a quiet street yet close to activities, restaurants, sightseeing, shopping. It offers the best of everything. We wanted the metal roof and blown-in insulation to make the house energy efficient and we added a hybrid water heater for the same reason. We built the guest house as though it was for ourselves and didn't skimp on the extras.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved being so close to the beach and look forward to another visit!

Best Place Ever

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful trip to St. Augustine and this is such a beautiful, comfortable, very clean, well maintained home to stay at. Very close to the beach and lots of restaurants and the historic town of St. Augustine which we spent a lot of time there. It was such a great trip. We would highly recommend this property. Thank You, John and Pat for such a beautiful place and sharing it with us.

No Worries!!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful, cozy beach house was just perfect. The location is just right. The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood with no roads between you and the beach. We could be on the beach after a 1 minute walk, walk to a nearby restaurant for seafood and cold drinks, or take a short drive to St Augustine to tour the history of the old city. We enjoyed early morning walks on the beach, late mornings touring St Augustine, afternoons hanging out at the beach and evenings at some great restaurants. We enjoyed dining outside at Salt Life, and especially enjoyed dining along the water at The Conch House. The beach house is just great. It is cozy with all the comforts of home. It is obvious that Pat and John paid close attention to the design and decoration of the home to make sure their guests felt special in their beach house for as long as they stayed. If you are looking for a place by the beach this is it! Its that place where you take a sip of coffee (or something a little stronger), sit on the balcony and wonder if only ............

First-Class Rental

  • 5 of 5

First off, the property is gorgeous. It's well decorated with light flowing in from every direction. The beach is a hop, skip, and a jump away. Not to mention, it's just across the street from the best taco shop in the area. Pat and John were very helpful. They run a very professional operation. Everytime we came back from the beach we talked about going "home," showering, and getting lunch. That's the beauty of this place - it feels like home! When we come back to St. Augustine we'll definitely be staying here!

Gorgeous carriage house only steps from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful property. The cottage is perfectly laid out and comes with all the amenities you could want on your vacation. We had a very relaxing time spending most of our days at the stunning Saint Augustine beach just a few steps from the home. The location is perfect and gives you great access to a myriad of restaurants, shops and activities. We really enjoyed the cleanliness and attention to detail in the decor. We can't wait to come back and stay at Sea Esta again!

Car: recommended

This beautiful private two bedroom carriage house comes with all the amenities you might need to get away from it all. It is on a quiet street just 150' from a beautiful white sand beach where you can swim, surf and walk for miles. Walk to a number of bar/restaurants, bicycle rentals, surf shop. Nearby is St. Augustine Amphitheatre showcasing top band concerts and special events year-round including farmers market every Saturday. Visit the Pier that offers a farmer's market every Wednesday and has volleyball courts and a pavilion where free events are held. Enjoy 'Music by the Sea' free concerts in the summer season with local restaurants serving fair priced food. Bring your chair and cooler (alcohol permitted) for a fun night! Visit the historic city 4 miles away. The Alligator Farm and the Lighthouse are spots you might enjoy. In St. Augustine you can kick back and relax or spend your days sightseeing and busy with activities sun up to sun down. We recommend taking the sightseeing trolley downtown to learn all about the history of the oldest city and you can get on and get off at various stops.
