Lovely beach cottage; short walk over the dunes to the beach; fall asleep listening to the surf. This home is beautifully decorated - spacious and full of light. The two of us had plenty of space to really relax and enjoy our vacation. Our little chihuahua loved the fenced yard for wandering and sniffing the beach grass! The kitchen had recently been renovated - we enjoyed cooking on the lovely ceramic cooktop. We were able to find plenty of cookware, casserole dishes, cake pans for all our cooking needs. Very peaceful and quiet place. Patricia lives upstairs an is very available for questions and help yet allows complete privacy. We loved going for walks in the area as well as biking around local quiet streets. Loved going out to eat at Caps by the water (beautiful sunset views) as well as the lunch place on the Vilano fishing pier. That place is pet friendly bringing water bowls for your doggie companion! Will definitely go back!!

Highly recommended!

We had a great time at Patricia's place. Private but convenient. Plenty of space, good amenities, easy to find. It was even better than the description. Clean, quiet, nice beach (even the Sheriff was nice and advised of the rules of the beach and to use "the red solo cup") and the "life guard chair" was a big hit with the family. We used both BBQ grills and the kitchen extensively. Had a nice campfire in the fire pit on the back patio. Publix, liquor store, restaurants and a couple of local shops within a few minutes walk. "Beaches" (bar/restaurant - 5 minute walk) was a pleasant surprise with good food and a beautiful sunset. Depending on traffic, you're 5 minutes from downtown St. Augustine. And a big thing - no draw bridge to deal with! Would definitely stay there again and we have already recommended this to our friends. Patricia - thanks for everything! We had a great time and really enjoyed our week at your place!

Wonderful vacation

This was the perfect vacation for us! Relaxing and unwinding. Patricia's house was perfect- everything well maintained and beautiful! Absolutely loved the lifeguard chair- perfect spot to read and watch the waves. We'll definitely return!
