Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 1 huge bath, fenced back yard, brand new and just one block beach.

Enjoy your best vacation ever. The Pearl is a beachside private home totally remodeled during the winter of 2014-15. This small ocean jewel is a two bedroom, 1 bath home in a quiet, highly regarded and admired beach neighborhood with a laid back atmosphere, eclectic mix of old Florida cottages and contemporary homes just one block from one of the several deeded beach accesses...just walk on. It is on a full lot that runs from one street to another providing additional privacy and access and parking. We are 100% pet friendly and children love this cottage. The furnished covered porch out front is a delight to relax on and listen to the ocean. The backyard has a great party deck for grilling, entertaining, relaxing and sunning. You are just a short, easy 2 minute stroll to one of the best beaches on the East coast and an easy bike ride to the intra-coastal waterway public boat ramp and Windswept Beach Park. You are only 10 miles from Marineland and 15 minutes from historic downtown St. Augustine.

The open Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen floor plan allows The Pearl to live big and easily all on one floor. Both bedrooms have extremely comfortable Beds (we love comfort). The MB is a king size bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds with a kit to easily convert them to a king size bed. Also, one of the two sofas in the Living Room is a great Queen sized sofa bed. You can easily sleep up to 5 people. Our home is fully equipped, very comfortable and very well decorated. A comfortable and brand new stainless steel and granite modern kitchen allows you to easily prepare meals at home when you choose. Enjoy the 48“ flat screen LED HD satellite TV, DVD Player and free wi-fi. The Master Bedroom also has a TV and DVD player. There’s even a stocked desk if Mom or Dad need to do a “little” work while away or just write postcards. We’ve provided lots of little extras to make your vacation memorable and the most fun.

We are out of state owners but very “hands on” with our property visiting often and living in one of our three vacation homes in St. Augustine during the winter. Our other two homes, 2nd Haven #295611 and The Mermaid Cottage #408813 are listed on VRBO also. The Mermaid Cottage and The Pearl are next door to each other and can be rented together for larger family/friend gatherings. Please read our reviews on our other homes. This house also meets those standards. Local friends help us maintain this lovely home and are available immediately should you need assistance

You will love this small ocean jewel The Pearl, the beach and the neighborhood. You will feel right at home immediately. We want you to relax and enjoy our home and your St. Augustine vacation experience and return year after year. Special winter rates available months of Jan., Feb and March.

About Deborah Reeves

George & Deborah live in the mountains of NC. George has just retired from a career as a general contractor and is still using those skills to remodel and maintain our homes. He is also a musician (often playing in the St,. Augustine area, especially in the winter months) wood artist and bee keeper. Deborah also recently retired from decades of owning salon/spas and is an avid gardener, stained glass artist (you will find her work in each of the homes) assistant bee keep and aspiring cookbook author with a blog site. We live a sustainable lifestyle in our 100+ year old farmhouse in the mountains of Cashiers, NC. and spend the winters in St. Augustine.

Deborah Reeves purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Deborah Reeves chose St. Augustine Area

George and I love the beach. We were both raised on east coast beaches and although we love living in the mountains of NC, we missed the coast. We always dreamed of owning a beach house. We've spent many hours and dreams designing and redesigning the quintessential beach get-away. We believe that we have created that special place to retreat, relax and recharge....the perfect 'memory building' spot to share with family, grandchildren and friends.

Acquiring The Pearl gave us the opportunity to "save" one more of the original beach bungalows. So many of these are being torn down and replaced with large tall homes. They are beautiful but we had a fondness for the older style cottages that conjured up lots of childhood memories. It has been fun to restore them to be very modern and comfortable homes. And we are happy to be sharing it with you and your family and pets.

What makes this cottage unique

We love grabbing a beach chair and just walking the short distance to the beach ramp. The ramp is built over the dunes and we enjoy looking at the plantings and creatures that live in the dunes. The beach is one of the widest on the east coast and we are always awed by it. It's a casual beach which we find very relaxing. Pets are allowed on a leash and we enjoy watching people and their pets. We are so close to Dtwn St. Augustine , the oldest city in the U.S. It takes minutes to drive Dtwn and enjoy all the site seeing, shops, architecture, wonderful art and great dining. We are always passing ghost tours and one of these days we're going to take one. Our neighborhood is well known for gopher Tortoises. They live here and are federally protected as an endangered species. We have a burrow in our yard and it is always a treat to see them roaming the yard. And it is nothing to pass one on the road as you are taking a walk and of course we see them as we walk the boardwalk over the dunes.

Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented The Pearl for one week on own way home from the gulf coast. We based our decision on the information and photos provided on VRBO. The Pearl is an absolute gem! It was very clean, beautifully decorated and well appointed. Deborah and George were very welcoming and accommodating. I highly recommend a stay at this lovely home when visiting St Augustine.

The Perfect Pearl

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time that we (me, my wife & puppy dogs) stayed at the Pearl. What a great little place this is. Only a block off the beach and very comfortable, for us and the dogs. It's been over a year since we stayed here, but everything looks exactly the same. Nothing is broken or worn out and always very clean. The home has been recently updated with contemporary finishes and it shows. We can't wait to come back again. Thanks Deborah & George, you are doing a wonderful job.

Look forward to having you return again.

Awesome beach retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd visit to St Augustine and by far the most enjoyable. Furniture is comfortable, home is spacious, and fenced in yard was amazing. Short walk to beach and nice safe neighborhood to walk dogs. We will definitely be back to the Pearl cottage. Thank you Deborah :)

Perfect getaway from cold North!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at "The Pearl". Charming house with all the amenities we needed. Loved the large fenced in backyard. Our puppy ( Lucky) enjoyed the yard and was unable to get out of the yard, so we did not have to worry about him. The beach was a short walk and very lovely. We found places to play Pickleball, and the people were friendly! We are looking forward to coming back again next year! Thank you Debbie

and George!

very peaceful and restful spot in St.Augustine

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Pearl beach home ! It is clean, nicely appointed with everything you will need for your stay. Newly renovated, free of clutter...simply easy to relax and enjoy without a care in the world. I love that the owners are so pet friendly and as far as owners go, you can not get any kinder than Deborah and her husband George. They were very easy to work with in securing the rental and being available for anything we may need.
