Overview

About the property

Stay In A Historic 1940's Motor Court With Pool, Steps To The Sand!

Bright 1940's Beach Cottage, just steps to the sand!

Kick back in this stylish vintage beach house, situated in a historic 1940's Motor Court right on scenic A1A on the west side, steps from the ocean! ANASTASIA LODGE CABANA is located on the Golden Mile of Old St. Augustine Beach, so this coastal haven is walking/biking distance to local restaurants and just a short drive to Historic Downtown. It has everything you need, including a stocked kitchen, two bikes, surf and paddle board, a plunge pool, hot tub spa, far infrared sauna and towels. A pool bath with an outdoor shower for beach days is located in the private courtyard. Just bring your suitcase and enjoy a calming retreat by the sea!

This bright and airy jewel was deemed the ANASTASIA LODGE CABANA by local surfers and beach-goers due to its relaxed old-Florida appeal and ideal location, by the most gorgeous surfing beaches around! This historic cottage is located on the vast, non-driving part of the beach, across from the entrance to the beautiful Anastasia State Park; the views are absolutely pristine! The State Park is full of nature and bird preserves. Your peaceful morning walks will go on for miles filled with endless natural beauty... a photographer's paradise!

Peek out the living room windows towards the Anastasia State Park beach access, then walk right out the front gate and stroll over to put your toes in the sand or have morning coffee at the famous FA’s Cafe! "FA" is an old local surfer’s term for “First Access” to the surf break/waves. This is a perfect spot for swimming, fishing, or watching local paddle boarders and surfers enjoying our salty St. Augustine lifestyle near the Pier. Walk right across the street to the Wednesday morning oceanside farmer’s market for local goodies or walk next door to Salt Life Food Shack for lunch with ocean views. Ride the beach cruisers anywhere on St. Augustine Beach or drive just minutes to the downtown shopping & nightlife! It's all right here, as the ANASTASIA LODGE CABANA is centrally located and right in the heart of it all!

*There are two bedrooms, both with queen beds. OUR MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY IS 4, AND IS STRICTLY ENFORCED due to the cozy size of the vintage cottage.

There is private parking for a maximum of three cars, no street parking.

Laundry facilities and beach gear are in the garage. You will find a key hanging in the kitchen next to the sink.

About Kate

To me, this beautiful little vintage cottage represents the beauty of St. Augustine Beach... the history of our Ancient City, the salty lifestyle we live here, and the sense that life can still be simple and fun if we choose it to be. For many years I have been renovating historic properties in town and beachside, and this wonderful Motor Court cottage is my favorite so far! I want to share this cozy little jewel, so others may also step back in time and enjoy the old-Florida appeal and relaxed ocean lifestyle here in St. Augustine Beach. I hope you enjoy this sweet little GEM as much as I do! Kate

Notes:
FOOD/DINING: Suggestions for some really good places to eat around the beach: For a casual breakfast you can walk out the door to FA Cafe or go just a few blocks up to Cafe 11. I love a little place called Kookaburra, also down the street, with fabulous coffee/Aussie pies. La Cocina International Restaurant in the lobby of Castillo Real Hotel at 11th Street is also really delicious, a local favorite for a cozy lunch or dinner. Salt Life, just next door, is a good option for an afternoon meal or dinner with a wonderful ocean view. Downtown, local favorites want to check out are: The Floridian (farm to table), Catch 27 (hip/fresh food), Tasting Room (tapas/fabulous wine), Prohibition Kitchen (Evening Hot Spot), and The Ice Plant (craft drinks/fresh local fare), Prohibition Kitchen (hot spot/music), The Historic Casa Monica Hotel is elegant and cozy for a lunch/dinner date. Looking for Vegan/Raw/Veggie, try Present Moment Cafe on West King or The Manatee Cafe on SR 16.

Adorable Cabana

  • 5 of 5

This cabana was cute and impeccably clean! The beds were comfortable and so were the sheets. The back yard oasis was perfect. Pool, hot tub and sauna, what more could you want? The beach is right across the street, walking distance to a couple of restaurants and a coffee shop. We will rent it again!

Beach cottage review

  • 5 of 5

The house was very neat and clean. The bathroom is small but adequate. I wish we knew that there was a washer and dryer as well as bicycles in the garage. We did not discover them until the last day. Great rental property with a close walk to the beach!

The perfect beach house and home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

The Anastasia Lodge Cabana is an airy, well-equipped, beautifully designed, and immaculately clean little house with marvelous backyard amenities like a plunge pool, hot tub, sauna, and outdoor bath-cabana. The attached garage, with full laundry facilities and lots of beach equipment, including bikes, paddle boards and more, and the fully paved yard with fence made a small house feel like a large private compound for fun! The close proximity to the beach (across the the street), the St. John's fishing pier, Wednesday farmers' market, and many wonderful restaurants make this a fantastic stay for walkable entertainment every day. We will be back again next year!

A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time in St augustine. The cottage was was perfect. I loved that the kitchen was fully stocked right down to spices, coffee and condiments! The beach is a short walk across the street and wonderful food just around the corner. Of course there is no reason to leave the cabana with a pool, hot tub and sauna right out the back door. Can't wait to go back.

Perfect beach house in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this small beach cottage where we spent a few days visiting family in the area during the holidays. Kate (owner/manager) was available and quickly responsive if questions arose; very good communication. The location is wonderful - right across A1A to the beach, close to old St. Augustine town, close to grocery store and eateries. The house itself, though small, is very tasteful and was clean, well-stocked, and comfortable for 3 of us. We cooked a few meals, enjoyed the pool and lovely outside area on our warm days. The small hot tub was perfect when we got a couple days of cold weather. Would love to stay again in the future.
