About Ellie Cuthrell, manager

This is a dream come true. We have always wanted a beach cottage and this is more than we ever dreamed about. We are still pinching ourselves. The views are spectacular. The home is cozy but spaciously open. The deck is an extension of the home where we can watch the multiple birds and ever changing surf. Our roof top deck is amazing. The ocean on one side and Guana State Park on the other. We are in Paradise. Come stay and you will feel as we do.

Ellie Cuthrell, manager purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Ellie Cuthrell, manager chose St. Augustine Area

We have seclusion and a very private beach, yet we are minutes to Ponte Vedra or historic St Augustine. We feel we are on an island yet know we have civilization and a closeness for dinners out, various sports activities including the many golf courses, shopping, etc.. We can be private or social....our choice!! You can also.

A diamond in the rough.....

  • 4 of 5

Amazingly untouched by the hurricane . Our family had a very restful, relaxing week. The view and the wonderful sound of the ocean so close by was incredible. The home is well equipped with everything we needed. Just a short drive to St . Augustine and to Jacksonville . Walked every morning on the beach.. A great experience overall!

Thanks, Patty and Family Ely, Minnesota.

Truly a Dreamkeeper

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited right after Hurricane Matthew and we were very worried about the shape of the home. We were surprised to see many homes destroyed and the Dreamkeeper was just as it should be (it has one amazing sea wall!). Ellie and the owners worked their butts off to clean up debris and get the house back to normal so we could enjoy our stay. Unfortunately as we were arriving and about to pull into the driveway our rental van was totalled by a careless driver, we are lucky to be alive. I was dealing with an ordeal, police and a screaming child instead of enjoying our arrival but as soon as we walked into the house all of our troubles faded away. It was so stunning and gorgeous we were immediately at peace. Although dealing with an unfortunate event the house was just so amazing it made me forget about everything else and we were truly on 'vacation'. This property is breathtaking. Sunrises over the ocean, sunsets over the national park from the roof top deck, and the moonrise and moonlit ocean at night. My daughter and I were lucky enough to see a large pod of dolphins playing right in front of the house. Morning beachcombing is fabulous! The beach is a private no drive beach, the sand is soft, the waves were perfect for boogie boarding. This house had everything we needed, kitchen stuff, board games, towels, boogie boards, beach toys, kayaks and even an outdoor shower. The décor was impeccable and calming. The beds and furniture were so comfortable, nice TVs in every room. The master bedroom is breathtaking with an ocean view, moon views, and it was wonderful falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. We were really in heaven. Ellie is amazing, she really goes out if her way to take care of guests, but is never intrusive, she even offered us her car to go grocery shopping when we were out of a vehicle! St.Augustine is amazing! It is a short drive from the home (or if you are having cocktails or do not have a car Uber is the way to go. We took Uber to town often and also when we didn't have a vehicle and it was only~$10). The people in St.Augustine are friendly and welcoming. We did a wine tour (tasting tours), went shopping, ate at fabulous restaurants and pubs, saw live music, bustling nightlife, pirate museum, etc. Old town has cobblestone streets, plenty to do, amazing shopping and dining, although it was hard to even leave the house. This was the best vacation ever and this home is truly a Dreamkeeper. We will be back every year, just WOW.

Great Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The dreamkeeper is a great home, right on the beach, with incredible views. Our family had a great week, and enjoyed all the amenities of this home. The deck was perfect for enjoying the sunrises, enjoying a cup of coffee in the mornings.

Ellie, thanks for the help in coordinating our vacation, and for the timely communication you had for us. Made the trip very smooth! This was our first visit, we definitely plan on a return visit!!

Paradise on the Atlantic Coast

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Ellie is just a wonderful manager. She makes sure that every detail of the property is as it should be, yet she is not intrusive in any way. We chatted via email and texting several times before our arrival and during our stay, and Ellie was just a delight. This property is just as appealing as it appears in all the pictures. You cannot beat the location right on the practically-private and very beautiful beach. It is a quiet and peaceful location. We did chat with one or two neighbors on the beach and they were happy to share suggestions for our stay. We were delighted when one morning we found the tracks of a sea turtle who came to lay her eggs very near our stairway to the beach. There are umbrellas, folding chairs, surf boards, boogie boards, and beach towels provided. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, glasses, silverware, coffee maker, everything you need. We were fortunate to have as close as you can get to perfect weather. We actually enjoyed the occasional late afternoon cloud formations and short rain bursts on a couple of evenings. It is only a ten minute drive (or maybe a little less) to a Publix Grocery Store. We ordered a to-go pizza at the pizzeria next to the Publix on our arrival evening, and the pizza was just fantastic. There are several little restaurants just a very short drive from the house. This location is interesting for many reasons including that you have the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Intercoastal Waterway on the other, so lots of water views and natural beauty. We enjoyed eating at Aunt Kate's, Caps on the Water and The Reef. Another plus is that Saint Augustine/Anastasia Island are just a 15-20 minute drive from the house. There is so much history in SA, plenty of things to see and do there. Going the other direction, Jacksonville is about an hour's drive away from the house.

We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and family, and we hope to return next summer. I can still hear the waves hitting the beach. Thanks again for everything, Ellie!

Second time to stay at Dreamkeeper!

  • 5 of 5

We will stay again at Dreamkeeper. 13 steps to a fantastic beach with few people. Clean and comfortable, one story home with large deck and a wonderful outdoor shower. We only fixed one meal at the home but all the items needed to cook were present. Linens, towels, beach chairs, etc.....everything is provided and in great shape. We will return most definitely, this home fits all of our needs. Can't wait until we return. A true home away from home.

Thank you Ellie!!
