TRANQUIL CARIBBEAN GET-AWAY

  • 4 of 5

I say Caribbean because the property was natural, un-touched and budding with life. From wild flowers to palm trees and cactus, it was calming and felt distant. Sure the view from this part of the property isn't looking right over the ocean, but we didn't need it. From the front porch I saw flowers covering the ground and seeming to flow into the water. A brick walkway weaves through the garden connecting all the rentals. This eventually transitions into a private boardwalk which also feels secluded. Check out the youtube video posted on the page for a more satisfying look at this place.

We visited the property with two small kids under 4 and a dog. All three loved walking or running from the Crow's Nest to the beach. I loved coming up over the hill on the boardwalk and seeing the clean, open beach front welcoming us to stay the day. We set up on the beach using a tent and chairs but we were able to sprawl out with multiple play spots. At times we had the run of the beach, but at other points the public access spilled into the area we practically owned in the mornings. However we never felt overwhelmed by people...this beach feels remote.

While we were there we saw people ride horses on the beach or take their bikes up along the ocean's edge. I wish we thought to do that because it looked fun.

When we weren't on the beach we enjoyed eating at Aunt Kates and Kingfish. Vinny also had a great gyro that wasn't greasy. We also spent some time in Saint augustine, but not much because we wanted to be on the beach. The Alligator Farm was worth the trip, we spent a rainy morning there.

There are 4 rentals here but the Crow's nest worked for us. Oh the only real downside: two queen beds in one room. The pro: it's like a hotel room. The con: you're not likely to share the Crow's Nest with friends... unless there is a way to divide the room for some privacy...

Overall I recommend this property.

A true gem!! Great view, comfortable furnishings and VERY clean!!

  • 5 of 5

It was just dreamy being able to watch the sunrise from the dining room/front porch. Did a little moon watching too from the side balcony and star gazed through the sliding door from the comfort our bed. The low bathtub made it easy to get in and out and we had plenty of towels. The AC cooled very efficiently. The flower beds along the pathway to beach were in bloom and perfectly lit at night. The beach area felt private in that there were very few people at all hours and lots of shells. It was a perfect space for visiting with family and relaxing any time of day. Publix grocery store is walking distance and convenient. Thank you for making this property available through VRBO.
