Listen to the waves from the comfort of your bedroom

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming pet-friendly cottage that is about as close to the beach as you can get. After driving for 21 hours and arriving at 12:30 am, it was a great relief to open the door (yay! the code worked) and see what a gem this place is. It was much larger than what I thought it would be. The furniture was comfortable and beds were OK. I do feel the beds could be a bit more stable. They moved very easily and just felt unsteady. The general storage room with the washer/dryer and beach toys/chairs was such a bonus and we used both while we were there. The full kitchen was great, especially with us being there for 9 days and having a teenager. Both bedrooms have sliding doors that open to the back deck, which had a love seat and two chairs w/coffee table. Such a great little spot to sit and listen to the waves, look at the ocean and just relax. One day was cool and we enjoyed sitting in and watching Netflix on the TV. I really enjoyed the fact that there was only one TV so my son HAD to spend time with us. The grocery store is within walking distance and the bridge to get to historic St. Augustine is less than 3 blocks away. It was even more convenient than when I stayed on Anastasia Island and had to go over the Bridge of Lions.

The ONLY reason I didn't give this property a 5 is the shower. It is the smallest and most uncomfortable shower I've ever been in. The entrance to the shower is so small that you have to step in sideways. The water pressure and temperature were great and the height was fantastic but the shower itself was maybe 3 x 3 feet (and I'm being generous). In addition, there were no shelves to put your shampoo/soap etc. and putting them on the shower floor is not an option because it's too tight to reach down and retrieve them. My son is 6'1" and only 130 lbs and even he was uncomfortable in the shower.

Couple suggestions for the owners:

- install locks on the screen doors in the bedrooms. While we didn't encounter anything that made us feel unsafe, the only reason I slept with the door open was because I had my dog and she slept on her bed right by the sliding doors.

- provide a couple extra blankets. I was up late watching TV and was a bit chilly and there weren't any blankets except those on the beds.

- provide a few board games, cards, dice

My family had a great time at this property and we can't wait to return. Even the small shower won't keep us away.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the excellent feedback! We are adding rubber feet for the beds, games and extra blankets for the closet and shelving for the shower. The shower is smaller than most people are used to, I'd say similar to being on a cruise ship. Most people who've stayed there don't mention it, but other people will notice it more. As the reviewer said, it is a minor issue when you consider the location, amenities and price!

Good for a quick beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property for a quick 3 day beach trip, and it worked out very well. Cozy and neat, not fancy but has all the amenities you need, including cable TV and WiFi (WiFi was good in the unit, not reliable when on the deck). The shower stall in the bathroom is small, but there's an outdoor shower which we used most of the time. A/C worked well, and there's a laundry room on the property which we didn't use but could be good during a longer stay. The unit is on the beach side of a busy road but we didn't notice road noise. You can just see the ocean from the deck, and a walkway goes past another structure on the same lot to get to the beach, it takes about 30 seconds. Deck faces the ocean and is not covered so gets full sun until afternoon; was nice and fully shaded by 4 or 5 PM. The location was very good, with a Publix grocery store a mile or so away, and a short drive across the Intracoastal to St. Augustine. I didn't have to call the manager about any maintenance issues during my stay so can't comment on responsiveness, but prior to my stay I called to ask a question and he was very professional and had the answer right away. I would rent this property again.
