Welcome to our tastefully decorated, single level, three bedroom home, offering a cozy space to accommodate up to six guests. You will find driveway parking available for up to two vehicles, with additional street parking conveniently nearby. Access to the home is via two steps leading up to the entrance. Wren Beach Rentals by Portoro presents “After Dune Delight”! This unique home sits high on top of a natural dune, offering incredible views of the beach and the ocean from just about anywhere in the house. Comfortably sleeping 6 adults, this 3 bedroom, 3 bath home is perfect for small families or a few couples. The spacious living room has a large leather sectional sofa with room for everyone. The kitchen and dining area are open and have views of the ocean. The kitchen features stainless appliances, granite counter tops, and a breakfast island. The dining table looks out over the back yard and the beach. Upstairs is the primary bedroom. Climb the spiral staircase and you’ll find a very unique bedroom. The exposed, sloped ceilings make this room very exceptional. The hardwood floors are original to the home. This bedroom has a king bed, TV, and a private bathroom with a walk-in shower. There is a loft off of the bedroom that offers endless views of the Atlantic to the east. This is a great place to relax and enjoy the sights or maybe read a book. Downstairs are two more bedrooms. Each of these have a queen bed, dresser, closet, and a full bathroom. The south bathroom has a tub/shower combination, while the north bathroom has a small step-in shower. There are some great outdoor spaces on the property as well. If you want to avoid the sun, you can hang out in the screened porch. Here you’ll find a porch swing and beach accessories. Overlooking the beach is our dune deck. This is a great place to layout in one of our recliners to work on your tan! The beach is just steps away. With virtually no public beach access you’ll find that you have the beach all to yourselves during your stay. We provide beach chairs, beach towels, and a gas grill. Of course, the house is completely furnished inside with all linens, towels, kitchen supplies, and more. If you want a day away from the beach, all of our guests have the opportunity to get a temporary membership to the Serenata Beach Club, which provides swimming pool, fitness center, dining, and more. The nation’s oldest city, Saint Augustine, is just about 15 minutes away. Here, you will find countless restaurants, shops, museums, tours, and more. Day trips to Orlando and Jacksonville are easy from here as well. Whether you are looking for a lazy vacation on the beach, a golf-filled trip, or family fun, you’ll find it here! Call today to book “After Dune Delight” for your vacation. Experience the beauty of sandy shores where you can swim, sunbathe, surf, paddleboard, and fish. Take leisurely walks along the beach to discover treasures like shark teeth, sand dollars, and sea glass. Explore Anastasia State Park for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, birdwatching, and picnicking in a stunning coastal setting. Discover the rich history of Historic St. Augustine by visiting landmarks like Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum, and the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park.

Immerse yourself in the Gilded Age at the Lightner Museum, housed in a historic hotel, showcasing a diverse collection of art, antiques, and artifacts. Experience the thrill of getting up close to alligators, crocodiles, and exotic animals at St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park, which also offers educational shows, zip lines, and exhibits of native Florida wildlife. Take a scenic short ferry ride to Fort Matanzas National Monument, a historic Spanish fort located on Rattlesnake Island.

Indulge in delicious cuisine at the many restaurants in St. Augustine, cafes, and eateries. From fresh seafood to international fare, there is something to satisfy every palate, including popular spots like 180 Vilano Grill and Pizza, Briskys BBQ, and Beaches at Vilano.

Great Views of the Beach, Sunrises, and baby turtles! After Dune Delight is in a great location. Nice and quiet for the early morning coffee and the evening cocktail hours. But still close enough to Downtown St. Augustine for a day visit anytime you'd like. Dave and Daphne were great to book through, very helpful, and provided insights for our stay. My wife and I will be booking through them again! Cheers, Darrell

Relaxing Beach Get-away Our family enjoyed our stay at After Dune Delight. When you walk through the front door, and see that BEAUTIFUL VIEW, you know you are in the right place! The property is located right on the beach with easy access to the beach and hose/shower is provided to rinse off when leaving the beach. There is a wonderful deck provided with lots of seating in case you don't want to go on the beach. There is also a screened in patio off the house to get out of the sun! The house was very accommodating with bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone. It is an open concept, so you can gather as a family to play games or puzzles during that rainy day! The property provides almost anything you might need for a vacation and if not, the store is not too far away! There are plenty of restaurants in the area to chose from and also a gas grill on the property if you want to stay in! St. Augustine is not too far away to go and explore! We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
