Our little cottage is right on the ocean on a never crowded beach. It's rustic all wooden interior is very appealing as is the large deck. Sorry, but no pets are allowed. One queen size bed. Maximum 2 guests please. If you want an unobstructed ocean view, a large deck, a nice beach, and a comfortable, well-furnished home, we think you'll be happy here.

The space
Our one-bedroom/one-bath oceanfront cottage has a large outdoor deck directly on the beach and ocean. The cottage is located just over one mile north of historic St Augustine on an uncrowded beach; across the road is undeveloped marsh and a view of the skyline of St Augustine. There are homes on either side of our cottage, but the view of the sea is uninterrupted. There is a full kitchen, bathtub with shower, central heating and air conditioning, bluetooth speaker, and is fully furnished with kitchen utensils, microwave oven, cookware, keurig coffee-maker, toaster, blender, silverware, bath towels, bed linens, blankets, pillows. bath soap, paper towels, toilet paper, gas barbecue grill, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, and deck chairs. We don't provision the kitchen, but we usually leave salt, pepper, olive oil, vinegar, and a few other items. If you leave non-perishables, we'll leave them for the next guest. Otherwise, the Publix supermarket is 1 mile south. We do leave a substantial number of books as well.

Guests love the view of the sea, the big deck, the uncrowded beach, and the sound of the surf. Guests won't find tv, cable, washer/dryer, or phone; but they will find the view, deck, and beach.( we Do have wifi )

A car is necessary as there is no public transit and the nearest supermarket is one mile away and the center of St Augustine is 2 miles. There are four restaurants within a mile and many more in the city. Bicycle, segway, and scooter rentals are available in the old city at: (URL HIDDEN)

Our oceanfront cottage is unique in that it was built in 1946; the interior is all pine wood (ceilings, walls, and floors), and we are one of the closest to the ocean of any homes in the region. With rare exception, you will be the only people on the beach in front of our cottage. We let the sea oats and natural vegetation grow wild on the dune in front. There is a wonderful, wild feel about the deck and ocean. What's not perfect? We are close to the roadway outside so traffic noise bothers some guests; most appreciate the proximity to the ocean. From the reviews you'll note that most guests don't comment about road noise; just want you to be aware of it. The house is 70 years old and we no longer refinish the wood floors. The kitchen, while fully functional, has not been remodeled. There is no tv or wireless or telephone, but there is good connectivity with AT&T cell phone. There are homes on either side of our cottage; both occupied by year-round residents. The parking area in front of the cottage is unpaved sand sand and gravel.

Where you’ll be

St. Augustine, Florida, United States

We love being directly on the ocean, on an uncrowded beach, but only 2 miles from the center of the city of St Augustine. We have houses on either side but there are privacy fences and only marshland across the road. Highway A1A is the road outside and even though we renovated the exterior and added soundproofing, there is some traffic noise. Guests rarely complain about this, but we want you to be aware of it.
