About Barry Fouts
We're retired business owners and native Floridians. Hobbies include parrot breeding. We're animal people with horses, cows, peacocks, guineas, chickens, and a resident deer born in a paddock 2012 and never left; best friends with a rescue pony in the same paddock, and of course lots of dogs and cats. All concentrated on 55 acres in the middle of nowhere two miles down a dirt road.
Barry Fouts purchased this Townhouse in 2011
Why Barry Fouts chose Saint Augustine
St Augustine has been our favorite town for 50+ years. We still haven't seen it all. We live 1 hour away, so we can manage the rentals ourselves & check after each cleaning to ensure it meets our standards. 'Clean' is job # 1 in our book! We love the quiet & solitude. The psyche repair is priceless! 10 years ago we visited St Augustines public beach and were not impressed by the crowded beach and traffic. 2011 was the first time we returned, and we bought Mi Casa. Our place at the end of Crescent Beach is on Summer Haven Island and is the closest thing to a private beach you'll find for under $10 million. As soon as we stood on the deck, which really is on the beach, we told the realtor 'we'll take it!' Some of the yearly renters have come back 10 years in a row, and everyone has written glowing reviews of the location, and now all the updates & upgrades that have been made. Sept '12 we shopped for another investment oceanfront condo and were amazed at the $4-500k condos that couldn't offer what Mi Casa already has. We weren't physically able to walk the distance out the walkway to the waters edge. Mi Casa has us spoiled. Walking down our 6' steps (less at high tide) is an unfair comparison. The rod holders on the deck railing are your first clue that nobody else is this close to the water! You don't need to pack everything for a day on the beach, just walk back inside for whatever you need.
What makes this Townhouse unique
We let our (leashed) dogs run on the beach while enjoying coffee early mornings. There's rarely anyone else on the beach, unless it's another dog-walker. We put our chairs at the waters edge & keep out toes wet. No hustle-bustle, crowds, traffic or noise. Just nature and its soothing effect. "Salt water is good for the soul"

Nothing better than walking out the back door and being on the ocean. The location was amazing and the unit was clean and well stocked. Barry is beyond fabulous with communication and being helpful. Totally recommend this location. The deck is AMAZING
You really do walk out the door & you’re on the beach. Terrific location!
Another wonderful stay at Mi Casa
I have loved my visits over the years at Mi Casa. You are right on the water at Matanzas Inlet and the view of the ocean is sensational.
The owner's Barry and Pat Fouts are lovely people and I enjoyed having a friendly conversation with them on the spacious deck out back on the ocean.
The property is beautiful inside also and so easy to maintain.
Everything I needed was right there on the property and in great condition. The A/C system works very well which is so important to me.
You can fish, swim, play or take a walk on the beach right outside the backdoor.
I will definitely return soon as it was such a joy and so peaceful.
Relaxing get away
I have already refered people to this condo.
The best review is when you tell your friends to come!
Fantastic location. Great beach for dog walking.
Layed-back region of the East coats.
Southern laid back that is! We’re here to relax— join us.
Cozy place with a Beautiful Beach
We stayed at this beach house with our friends and pets. Amazing beach with friendly dog people and the condo was excellent and clean. Would stay here again and will!
We believe you should share with your pets—-they need a break from their daily grind too!!
Absolutely Gorgeous Location
We thoroughly enjoyed our short trip to this property. The location is very ideal for families and it was wonderful to relax on the deck while the kids played on the beach nearby. During low tide the kids found cool fish and shells in the tidal pools nearby. We originally had plans for other activities in the St. Augustine area but once we settled in, we decided just to enjoy our time right on the water and soak in the views and the relaxing sounds of the waves. We cannot wait to return. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!
Sometimes the waves determine where you go. Lots of our guests never leave the beach their whole week.
Historic downtown St Augustine can fill your whole day just walking and looking in the shop windows & enjoying great restaurant food.
