About Owner

I stayed in this house on vacation and liked it so much, purchased it from the owner. The twelve foot ceilings make it seem light and airy. The neighbors are nice and there is so much history in the area along with beautiful beaches and drives.

I have been a high school teacher, technical writer, and web developer. My hobbies include travel, painting, and most of all, enjoying my American Eskimo dogs. In Setember 2016 I bought my fourth puppy--over 40 years with this breed!

What makes this house unique

Close to beach, grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, and historical downtown. Very friendly neighborhood. Easy to drive north or south along A1A for beautiful oce4an views and view of mansions. Access to beach and wildlife preserves on North A1A. Restaurants along ocean and intercoastal waterway. I like Caps on the River. Easy access from Jacksonville Airport. Man across street has limousine service that will pick you up and deliver you to the house or a car rental place!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent location to the beach. The home was very spacious and clean. It was very accommodating with kitchen utensils, beach equipment, and bedding. I would rent this home again.

Great home base spot

  • 5 of 5

The pictures is exactly what you get. What the pictures don't show is how well stocked this home is. It really is a home away from home w/excellent mattresses & water pressure. Stayed here for 3 weeks and unfortunately had to leave. It is not located in the hustle, bustle location of St Augustine; but is right off of A1A near Publix and local eating establishments. The secluded beach is located at the end of the street!

The owner was quite responsive to any issues that comes with home ownership Would recommend this place to any family and twosomes with pets.

If I have to mention a dislike it was the condo bldg. behind the home, which is standard for all beach locations. The owner countered this with plantings that provide privacy around the pool & hot tub.

Would stay again!

Sun by the Sea, in St Augustine Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely home the month of February 2017. This was our first time being away from home an entire month, and we found staying at Sun by the Sea was just like being home. Vicki is a gracious hostess and promptly responded to any questions we had.

The proximity to the beach was wonderful allowing us to take our daily walks on the beautiful sand. Our small dog accompanied us, and loved his beach walks.

We took advantage of the tourist attractions in St. Augustine and truly enjoyed the history of this beautiful city.

We enjoyed the Wednesday morning Market at St. Johns County Pier Park. The vendors offered everything from fresh produce to arts and crafts. Don't miss this!

Grocery stores were close by, as well as many restaurants. Salt Life, Sunset Grille and Raintree Restaurant were several of our favorites. Vicki keeps and extensive listing of restaurants and attractions in the home which we found to be very helpful.

We hope to return to this lovely home in the future.

Thank you Vicki for your hospitality!
