Overview

About the property

Oceanfront House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-19

St Augustine's Best section of Beach! Totally renovated in 2012! 4 Oceanfront Homes.

Cottage 1 is 5 Bedroom 5 Bath - Sleeps 19 - UPSTAIRS is 2 Bedroom + Kids Bunkroom, Sleeper sofa & daybed w/ 2 Baths. DOWNSTAIRS 3 Bedroom + 2 Sleeper sofa areas w/ 3 Baths. Both with 40- 50' Covered Patios. Rented as one unit.

We have created the ultimate vacation experience on the BEST BEACH in town. Using 'Top-of-the-Line' finishes (Stainless, Granite Counters, 100 yr old Heart of Pine floors) and soft beach colors, it looks like you are walking into a Coastal Living centerfold. Almost everything is NEW! New Kitchens, New Baths, New Furniture. New Technology. Every bedrooms comes with wall mounted TVs and Wireless Internet.

Cottage 1 is the largest Home with two kitchens. Both floors come with 12 x 40 to 50' Oceanfront Covered Porch. The first floor is a 3 Bedroom (1 King, 2 Queen) 3 Baths with Queensize Sleeper Sofas in the Great room and the Study (Sleeps 10). Upstairs is 2 Bedroom 2 Bath plus a bunk room for small children complete with their own TVs and a daybed in one Bedroom (Sleeps 9). The entire home sleeps 19 and comes with 4 car garage. Rents as whole unit, not separate floors.

Need more space see Cottage 2 next door. It is a 2 Bedroom 3 Bath and advertised on HomeAway #997263..

Located on The Best Beach In Town. If you are not from the area you need to read this to see the difference. Your family will thank you.

There are 4 distinct Beaches in St Augustine. Be sure and find out “where” your beach house is located before you book. I believe this is the Best section for 5 reason:

First is the Sand. The sand is like powder, not coarse ground up shells like Vilano to the north. This is the white powder you are looking for. Great for drip castles!

Second, at Ocean Is Right At Your Door Step. There is no long raised boardwalk like further south along Atlantic View with a 5 minute walk across the dunes to navigate with the cooler & chairs before you ever get to the water. Here the ocean and the View is steps from your door. Be careful. There are some “beachfront” homes that are so “far from the beach” because of the sand dunes that you can hardly “see” the ocean.

Third, there are No Cars. This is a major distinction. Everything south of A Street has Cars. Imagine trying to play paddle ball or throwing football with cars continually passing by & having to be on constant baby alert. Not while you are on vacation!

Fourth, the beach is WIDE with Great Waves - Some beaches in Vilano to the north are narrow & steep, some even with rocks. The slope of the beach affects the waves. They break so close in you can't boogie board. The locals consider this the Best Surfing around. There's a friendly Surf shop with lessons & rentals right down the street on 1st Lane if you have some adventurous ones. The rest will have plenty of fun with the boogie boards provided by Seaside Cottages free of charge.

Last, the beach is within Walking Distance of loads of restaurants. Many beaches both north and south are so isolated you have a long drive to get to anything. Not here. It is so nice to be able to walk over to a restaurant for breakfast or send the kids out for a fish sandwich instead of having to cook. Publix Supermarket and Starbucks are only 1 mile away. There is a park nearby with Tennis and a YMCA for swimming or workout. Even a funky BBQ restaurant with live music and a Pool for their guest. The City has a pier with Splash park, Volleyball court and Live Music on Wednesday nights. For a list of Things To Do. I am available day or night.

Always at your service,

Linda Bayles

About Linda Bayles

My name is Linda Bayles from Lindasbeach. I have been a Realtor in the Jacksonville/St Augustine area ranking in the Top 1% of Agents since 1998.

I work primarily as a Single Agent. There are not many of us out there. Most Realtors work as neutral Transaction Agents. You can google 'Buyers Agent' to get an overview of the difference. I think it is big. Just ask yourself the question, Would I want the other sides Attorney to represent me too? That's it in a nut shell but the amazing thing is, unlike Attorneys, it does not cost you anything to have your OWN Realtor representing just YOUR interest. We are all paid by the Seller. So .... I would love to help if you are thinking about buying or selling in the area. Just call and I will start sending photos of homes so you can get familiar with the options before you come. Once here just let me know when you are available. We can see about 4 per hour.

And in 2004, I fell in love with St Augustine Beach.

Linda Bayles purchased this house in 2011

Why Linda Bayles chose Saint Augustine

In 2005 I walked into a 1926 beach cottage on St Augustine Beach and knew I had found my calling. I wanted to 'Create' a vacation space for Families. Large extended families. A place were Cousins, Grandmothers, Uncles and Aunts can comfortably come together to reconnect and enjoy each other away from the demands of the outside world.

I come from a large family of 5 children as does my husband, Brad. Some of my fondest memories are when we all got together to just 'hang out' for 3 or 4 days. The little ones always come up with a 'play'. The adults always congregate in the Kitchen passing down the 'Family Recipes' to the next generation and playing Games. We are a big Game playing family. Specifically Rummikub . If you have never played, you should. I make sure there is one in each house and once you are hooked and have one of your own, hope you will think of your St Augustine stay every time you play. (Call and I will give you the rules)

So I bought that 1926 Craftsman, gutted it and turned it into The Chautauqua which sleeps 22. It has been a rewarding success.

In 2011, my Father expanded the tradition and bought 4 homes on 3 Oceanfront lots. We could not believe our luck and spent the next year remodeling them into The Seaside Cottages. We just put them on the market in June 2012.

Now we can accommodate up to 35 in one location! Cottage 1 is 5 bedroom 5 bath plus 2 sleeper sofas, 1 daybed and 2 bunks. Cottage 2 is a 2 Bedroom 3 bath plus sleeper sofa. Cottage 3 (here) is a 2 bedroom 2 bath with Sleeper. And Cottage 4 is a 1 bedroom 1.5 bath with Sleeper.

The Best part is not only the houses but the BEACH. There are only 18 streets on the “Best Beach” - No cars. No Catwalk. The ocean right at your door. Everything within walking distance…. And we now have homes on 2 of the them!

I hope you will come stay with us and create memories you will cherish for a lifetime. Then I will consider it a success.

Guestbook comments from the manager

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We rented cottages one and three for our weeklong family reunion and had a wonderful time. We all enjoyed being so close to the beach. Since there were 26 of us we had a problem finding all the bedding we needed at first. However, the places are well furnished with flat screen TVs everywhere. The adults thoroughly enjoyed the upstairs balcony of cottage one with the evening breezes and nice view.

So beautifully decorated and laid out so well for a group weekend. We easily slept 10 people

Wonderful House!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time celebrating my sons graduation from Flagler college with family!! House was big enough to accommodate all of us and worked out wonderfully. The large deck was definitely a spot for relaxing and entertaining family!

Beautiful oasis

  • 4 of 5

This was my second year coming back with 4 Women for a retreat. The home is spacious, the kitchens well-stocked, and the bedrooms comfortable. When you walk through the door to head upstairs you can feel any stress you had before your arrival start to drip off your fingertips. And as fabulous as the house is, the expansive deck is always a favorite spot.

We had a small issue with a noisy ceiling fan in the ocean-front upstairs bedroom and we're impressed with the repair response...one quick call & it was fixed in under an hour.

My only disappointment was on the last night of our stay after a day of kayaking and extensive walking, we discovered that two of the jetted tubs-- while deep and roomy -- had inoperable jets. Based on our other experiences I'm sure the downstairs tubs will be repaired shortly.

The location of the house itself is one -- if not THE -- best on St Augustine Beach.

We will certainly return.

Beautiful property and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beachfront home for five nights in October with a group of five couples. The house is beautifully decorated and equipped. We have rented many houses on VRBO but have never stayed in a house that has more than adequate number of towels, beach towels, beach chairs etc for you to use. The kitchen was also sufficiently equipped with utensils glassware and pots and pans.

It was a nice plus for each couple to have their own bedroom and private bath. There was also a bunk room that we did not use

The house is only steps away from the beautiful sandy beach. It is also walking distance to several restaurants, ice cream shops and beach shops.

I would highly recommend this house for a large family or group of friends! We will for sure be back next year.
