About Pam Kota

This house represents a dream come true - i just purchased this home and have long renovation effort ahead of me but i melt everytime i look at that ocean view - i am hoping that the visitors enjoying this property will bless this home

Pam Kota purchased this house in 2015

Why Pam Kota chose Summer Haven

This property is a realization of a dream. What can I say - I DARED to dream Wanted this property so bad as it has ocean view in the front and marsh/river/intercoastal view in the back - this property allows for ocean and river fishing.

What makes this house unique

ocean front , all round wrap around balcony, river view.

Proximity to Matanzas Inlet, Marineland Dolphins, and Historical monuments and in the nations oldest city

Fantastic Oceanfront Beach Stay! Sooo close to the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. The deck runs all the way around the house and is gated so our dogs were easily able to run free on the deck and loved it! They loved the beach, too, but had to be leashed there so the deck offered them a freedom they wouldn't have had otherwise. My young adult nieces and nephew surfed on the beach that is directly by the house. It is as close as this picture shows it to be.

Due to temp changes we used the heat and AC in the same week and both worked great. All appliances worked well. The ice maker isn't hooked up so either bring ice with you or plan to use the ice trays that are provided for you. My family uses a lot of ice so buying was the better option for us. The kitchen is well supplied and had everything we needed. The bedrooms were comfortable. The bathrooms have wonderful walk in showers in them. There is no carpet in the home so it was so easy to keep the sand swept up off the floor. I really appreciated that because it is impossible to live on the beach and keep sand out. The pictures listed on this site haven't been updated to show the new gray siding. It looks very nice.

This is a beach house that was once on the old A1a Hwy running south from St Augustine Beach. It is located near Marineland. The old A1A Hwy was destroyed during Hurricane Irma so the owner now provides a 4 wheel drive Jeep to get from the new A1A Hwy to the house on the beach. We didn't have any problems with this. Parking is provided for your vehicle very nearby in a safe location. It literally only took a few minutes to get from the beach house in the jeep to where our car was parked.

There is a great outside shower available by the stairs to the house to wash off. The views from the house are unbeatable and I have been vacationing in Florida for 30 years. I plan to come back. The owner was very easy to work with and was helpful when answering our questions.

The property is beautiful. The home sits right in the beach so there's only a very short walk to the water. The water was warm and clean. We hunted shells for hours. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was like we had our own private beach! The beach was clean so I didn't have to worry about my daughter or dog stepping on anything that could hurt them. Except maybe a crab! The kitchen is fully stocked so we had everything we needed to cook dinner. We did find it easier to get groceries and cook instead of going out to eat every night. The deck goes all the way around the house which was perfect for my daughter and our dog to run around outside without getting lost or hurt. Since the hurricane washed out the road, we were lucky to be able to borrow Pam's jeep to get to the house. It made for a fun ride! Pam is very sweet and was available to answer any questions we had. I would definitely stay there again!

Great property! Great owner!

  • 5 of 5

You will NEVER beat the view--EVER. Pam is the best property owner I have ever worked with. If there is a glitch she fixes it IMMEDIATELY. Old A1A does not exist anymore but that is a problem Pam has overcome. The price is THE BEST you will ever get for the view. It is remote so you will get a relaxing, peaceful, and private vacation. The beach is private. I plan to rent each year. This is the best property I have ever rented-- PERIOD.

Relax on the beach with the comfort of home.

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, relaxing, and comfortable. Owner was very accessible and ready to help throughout our trip. House was clean and had beautiful 360 views from wraparound deck for sunrise and sunset. Plenty of room for a family of seven (five children 12 and under). Updated kitchen and baths. Keep in mind that house is only accessible by vehicle with 4-wheel drive, but owner provides a jeep for driving on the beach to the house. Internet is satelitte based so a bit spotty, but wifi mostly worked. Overall, it was a wonderful house and empty beach to enjoy our vacation.

Perfect size for a family of 3 to 5. Expansive views with enormous amount of outdoor decking!

  • 4 of 5

One of the most relaxing vacations I have ever taken. Sitting on the deck in an adirondack chair after playing hard in the waves gives a peace and satisfaction I have not felt in years. The only thing I would like to see is a table and chairs outiside so we could dine in the unbelievably refreshing ocean breeze. We plan to go back next summer.
