Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Not a condo scene!! 3 night or longer rental only. No more than one month rental at a time. This beautiful free standing cottage is nestled quietly away one block from a pristine, white sand beach in Historical Butler Beach, Florida. It has as beautiful private, gated, small maintained back yard. The home is completely furnished. There is a washer/dryer, internet/wifi, Direct TV, and all usual appliances including a dishwasher. Many appliances to make you feel like you could cook about anything! I have tastefully decorated and maintained the house. Views are unobstructed into the back yard from the large living area. It is very private and quiet. All is on ground level with a small step up to the front and back door. Grab bars in the 2 bathrooms for safety. The beach is a one block stroll with no major streets to cross as the apartment is east of A1A. Now that Mary Street is the closest entrance to the beach due to Hurricane repairs up to A street, the cottage is very desirable as you keep your car at home, use the provided wagon to go to the beach 2 minutes stroll . Historical St. Augustine, the oldest town in the United States, is a 10 minute car ride with restaurants, shopping and site seeing tours. There are also restaurants right there in the area of the apartment as well. Located just one block across A1A is a wonderful boat ramp in if you wish to bring a boat or kayaks. You launch free from there. For anyone who needs at least a month to get away monthly rentals are also available. The Crescent Moon (a 1/1 cottage ) is in the front of the Ooo Laa Laaah but all is private and quiet. The HE Maytag washer dryer is shared with the Crescent Moon. Comfortable beds and furniture. I work hard to make your stay perfect. Great deal for those who love the quiet and are having trouble finding a nice place to vacation with their pets. A limit of 2 pets at the Ooo Laa Laaah.

About Martie McLean

I'm 68 years old and I live in Ocala, Florida. I have rented the front of the property for 6 years and have had fantastic reviews through other vacation websites. I also have a rental at Dekle Beach Florida (vacationrentals #7040694)

that keeps me busy during scalloping season. I take great pride in my beautiful places and am very responsive to any of our guests' needs. I do not live locally but can be there in 2 hours. I have a team of folks that help me with any issues you may encounter. I am available by phone but especially by email. The lovely apartment is tastefully decorated and fully furnished. I want nothing more than for you to have a wonderful time at Ooo Laa Laaah and the Crescent Moon.

Martie McLean purchased this house in 2006

Why Martie McLean chose Saint Augustine

Just loved the backyard and the house. The beach is my favorite and private and eco friendly. The property is very quiet. Pets are welcome, too.

What makes this house unique

Pet friendly, quiet and NOT the condo scene.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love the  0oo Laa Laaah the two weeks we were there. The place was beautiful and we had lots of room. Our daughter came down for a few days and she had plenty of room. The big back yard was the best place for the boys (our dogs). Our Louie wanted to stay in it all the time. The other ones enjoyed it, too. I did not have very far to walk to the beach. I walk with a cane so I was able to walk down every day. We also love the Crescent Moon (the unit up front). We have no complaint about either place, nor the price. Just trying to figure out if we can stay longer next year.

100% Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

This home was clean, comfortable, complete, and conveniently located for a spectacular beach vacation. The decor is fun, even a touch funky, and very functional. For example, I delighted in discovering a number of night lights, the first being the one in the master bath that went on went I got out of bed in the middle of the night. I wouldn't let Marti tell me where they all were because it is fun to find them. We brought two dogs and loved the fenced backyard and very short walk to the dog-friendly beach. The beach is wide, clean, quiet, beautiful--amazing! We'll be back.

The experience was exceptional to say the least. The decor was awesome with ample space.

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be back. It felt like our home, away from home! We briefly met Martie who was busy working in the adjacent cottage. She was very cordial, and was quick to attend to our needs if we had any. I Highly recommend this cottage.

Owner's Response: Mike and Eryn were a wonderful couple and their two pets were very well behaved. I enjoyed meeting them and hope the Ooo Laa Laaah is a home away from home for a long time.

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

Quaint, quiet, steps from the beach. An overall great experience. Loved the backyard for our dog to just hang out. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. Since the only beach access are now Ave A and Mary Street, the cottage offers so much. It is just a stroll with a wagon and cart to use. You can only drive on the beach with a 4X 4 as the sand is so soft. So you just leave your car at the cottage and stroll one block! Easy and highly valuable to beach lovers.
