The 1st floor has its own entrance, and the 2nd floor is up the stairs with separate entry. Nice and private!* This house is perfect for 2 couples traveling together that want to have their own space! We welcome families but know the set-up of this home is not ideal for families with small children. Beautiful and well appointed, you just won’t want to leave! Upon entry to Seascape Cottage, you will notice stately Sylvester palms flanking the spacious driveway and native cabbage palms towards the home…even one that’s curved like you would see on a deserted island – perfect for picture taking! Heading to the upstairs entry you will have plenty of seating inside the vaulted open living area with a 65″ tv on the wall. A well-appointed chef’s kitchen with bar and seating for 4. The kitchen island also has seating for an additional 4 people. Looking east you have wide open views of an almost private Atlantic Ocean. Towards the front of the home there is a small nook hallway that has a nice welcome entry table. Across from the nook is a beautiful modern bathroom with all the amenities. The bedroom is just past the bathroom…equipped with a memory foam king bed, closet and two dressers. Walking through the slider located just off the living room, is the upstairs oceanfront deck. There you’ll find comfy lounge seating and a covered dining area with seating for 6. The separate downstairs is perfect if traveling with another couple/family, nanny or grandparents! You will enter through the no step up French doors into the living room. There you will find a comfortable sofa with a queen pull-out sofa bed and 2 chairs. There is a 55″ tv mounted on the wall. Just behind the living is a kitchenette with sink, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. Off the kitchenette is the bathroom with huge shower and all amenities. Another primary bedroom is up next with memory foam king bed, a closet and dressers. A 55″ tv sits atop the dressers. A doorway from the bedroom gives access to a full laundry room. Off the living area and through the back door is an oceanfront patio that is fully covered offering shade and seating. Outside on the north side of the house is a shed with all the beach equipment you need to enjoy your time on the sand and in the water. An outdoor shower with foot-rinse is also available to clean off after a day at the beach. For privacy and safety, the home is fenced and has a lovely front courtyard with gate access. The courtyard features a sitting area along with a gas grill and Trager smoker. Extra sleeping: Just outside the laundry room is a Twin XL fold-out memory foam floor mattress for use if needed. 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. Stroll down St. George Street, a pedestrian only thoroughfare in the heart of the historic district, lined with charming shops, restaurants, galleries, and historic sites. 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.

Such a wonderful house! Everything was well stocked. The decor was beautiful! Being so close to the beach was amazing. Also the convenience of Publix and good restaurants just a short distance from the house. We never missed a sunrise from the back porch. We will be back!!

Great Beach House This beach cottage was just perfect. Freshly and beautifully decorated, comfy beds and linens. Loved the beach equipment for use, plenty of towels, chairs, umbrellas, toys etc. I read reviews about road noise and while I did hear this, I was able to sleep through until I usually wake in the mornings. Kitchen was fully equipped, very spacious. We did little cooking in but I noticed if we did decide to cook, everything needed was there. My daughter slept on the downstairs pull out sofa and said this was surprising comfortable. Extra blankets were easy to find. I love being able to throw dirty laundry in the washer to I am not having to do so much laundry on the return home. I enjoyed coffee every morning on the ocean front deck and the morning sunlight provided so much light in the upstairs area. It was hard to leave. Would definitely consider staying here again!

This place is a GEM! My husband and I, along with our 22 month old daughter, stayed here and had the best time we have ever had at any beach rental! The house is exactly as pictured and even better! It is so clean and fresh and met every single one of our needs. I personally appreciated that the house did not feel musty (like many beach rentals can feel) or unsafe. The deadbolt locks on the bottom and top worked perfectly and gave us peace of mind, especially with our baby girl. The house sits directly on the beach overlooking the beautiful ocean and we could not get enough of those views! The deck is the perfect place to sit and watch the ocean, or even eat meals, which we did many times! The owners clearly thought of everything and provided every beach toy/canopy/chairs, etc that you could possibly want on the beach, as well as beach towels. Even in the middle of the summer, the beach where the house is located feels almost private, which we loved! We could literally go on and on! This place is the whole package and we will definitely be staying here again!
