Property Description

SEASIDE COTTAGE 1 - Amazing Ocean Views! Best Section of Beach! (6 BD 5 BA - Sleeps 19)

In 2012 we completed a TOTAL renovation of 4 Oceanfront Homes located at 2 9th Street, the "Center" of the Best Section of St Aug Beach (No cars on the Beach, No long catwalk to reach the Beach and scores of great Restaurants within walking distance). Cottage 1 is the largest with a huge 50' Deck and "Amazing Ocean Views". Designed for large groups it has 2 Kitchens, 2 Greatrooms & 2 Covered Decks and comfortably sleeps 19. Using 'Top-of-the-Line' finishes (Stainless, Granite Counters, 100 yr old Heart of Pine floors) and soft beach colors, it looks like you are walking into a Coastal Living centerfold. To see the other cottages and all 12 of my homes including the Historic Downtown see the links below.

2 GREATROOMS - 2 KITCHENS - Seaside Cottage 1 was designed for large groups. Renovated with Top of the Line Finishes from the Heart of Pine floors specially milled for Seaside Cottages to Custom Built Kitchen Cabinets with loads of glass. It looks like it came right out of Coast Living Magazine. Everyone gathers at the Huge upstairs Greatroom with its 50' Oceanview Porch. The open floor plan allows Ocean views from almost every room. There is plenty of seating both for TV and Dining featuring a 65" Wall Mounted TV with Comcast on Demand and a streaming video box so if you have Netflix you can share all your favorites with friends. There are 2 dining tables both inside and out + stools at the large Kitchen island. All Stainless Appliances including French Door Refrigerator, Microwave, super quiet Dishwasher and Convection "Double" oven to make it easier to cook for large groups. It is fully equipped with Pottery Barn dishes and glasses, pots and pans, serving dishes, crock pot, wine glasses, coffee maker, toaster, blender.....etc. All you need to recreate all your favorite Family Recipes. Plus on the 1st floor is a second Greatroom, Kitchen and Dining room. Smaller but cozy. With the same 65" wall mount TV!

2 PORCHES - This is my favorite place. Upstairs we have a 40' Covered Porch with rockers and seating and outdoor dining plus an open deck for the "Sun Worshipers". The Ocean view is unobstructed. Spectacular! Plus we have another down stairs porch. No view but more seating and Dining. More places for people to hang, to play games or cards (provided) and just enjoy!

6 BEDROOMS & 5 BATHS - The first floor has 3 Bedrooms (1 King, 2 Queen) and 3 Baths with a Queen size Sleeper Sofa in the Great room and 2 singles in the Alcove (Sleeps 10). Upstairs has 2 King Bedrooms & 2 Baths plus a 5' bunk room for small children complete with their own TVs, a Queen Sleeper in the Greatroom & a Fold down sofa in one of the Bedrooms (Sleeps 9). Each Bedroom with it own TV - 10 in all. The entire home sleeps 19. Remember if you need more space you can rent one of the other Seaside Cottages or explore The Chautauqua, my 3 story Oceanfront Home with 7 Bedrooms 5.5 Baths that sleeps 21 a few blocks south.

BEST BEACH - If you are not from the area you need to read this to see the difference. Your family will thank you. There are 4 distinct Beaches in St Augustine. Be sure and find out “where” your beach house is located before you book. I believe this is the Best section for 5 reason:

First is the Sand. The sand is like powder, not coarse ground up shells like Vilano to the north. This is the white powder you are looking for. Great for drip castles!

Second, at Ocean Is Right At Your Door Step. There is no long raised boardwalk like further south at Crescent/Butler Beach with a 5 -10 minute walk across the dunes to navigate with the cooler & chairs before you ever get to the water. Here the ocean and the View is steps from your door. Imagine, there are some “beachfront” homes that are so “far from the beach” because of the sand dunes that you can hardly “see” the ocean.

Third, there are No Cars. This is a major distinction. Everything south of A Street has Cars on the Beach. Imagine trying to play paddle ball or throwing football with cars continually passing by & having to be on constant baby alert. Not while you are on vacation!

Fourth, the beach is WIDE with Great Waves - Some beaches in Vilano to the north are narrow & steep, some even with rocks. The slope of the beach affects the waves. They break so close in you can't boogie board. The locals consider this the Best Surfing around. There's a friendly Surf shop with lessons & rentals right down the street on 1st Lane if you have some adventurous ones. The rest will have plenty of fun with the boogie boards provided by Seaside Cottages free of charge.

Last, the beach is within Walking Distance of loads of wonderful restaurants. Many beaches both north and south are so isolated you have a long drive to get to anything. Not here. It is so nice to be able to walk over to a restaurant for breakfast or send the kids out for an ice cream or fish sandwich instead of having to cook. Publix Supermarket and Starbucks are 1.5 miles south. There is a park nearby with Tennis and a YMCA for swimming or workout. The City has a pier with Splash park, Volleyball court and Live Music on Wednesday nights in the Summer. Call for a List of Things To Do.

5 MILES TO DOWNTOWN - There is more to St Augustine that just the Beach. Our Downtown founded in 1565 is the oldest continuously occupied European Settlement in the US and one of the Top 6 Florida destinations according to US News & World Reports. (They rank us #2 Best Affordable Honeymoon Destination and our Beach #5 in USA). You'll feel like you are back in time. Strolling Old World Walking Streets. Romantic Lighting. Outdoor Music filling the air. There are scores Historic Sights and fabulous Restaurants. Call or my LIST of THINGS TO DO. With the Beach and the History we are truly a "Must Do".

Fabulous location

Cathy W
We met here for a family reunion, 3 families under one roof. The view is amazing. The house had everything we needed. The location cannot be beat. It feels like a secluded beach, but you're still so close to everything St. Augustine has to offer. We had a wonderful stay and definitely recommend it to anyone!

Rave reviews from the entire family
We booked this place along with the smaller cottage next door for a family trip for my mother's birthday. We had guests ranging in age from my parents who are in their 60s all the way to my infant niece and everyone was comfortable. Linda does a fantastic job of making a clean and cozy space to relax. The location couldn't be better. Linda recommended several restaurants within walking distance and the historic district was just a short drive away. Best of all, we were just steps away from the beach. The beach chairs and toys were appreciated by all. We had a fantastic game of beach volleyball one afternoon- the net is about 100 yards up the beach to the right (away from the pier). Lastly, we made great use of the grill. We had steaks, burgers, brats, and grilled veggies. Yum! I really can't say enough about how happy we were with the place. Everyone loved Linda's cottages and I absolutely recommend staying here!

Great location with a great covered porch
This property was comfortable for a large group; we most enjoyed everyone being able to gather on the covered porch facing the ocean for sun and moons rising, as well as when it rained. Plenty of parking, super short walk to beach and restaurants. House had everything we needed!

Our stay was fantastic. We rented Cottage 1 and loved the set up. It was clean and new appearance. The bed was comfy and loved the shower head. You will enjoy the sunrise from the front porch as I did if you are an early riser.

Great Pre-Christmas Vacation
Good floor plan for large group. Convenient with dual kitchens. Comfy beds. Upper deck great for viewing. Plenty of bathrooms. No notice of house between our rental and beach. Shower unsafe for elderly with slippery tile and no grab bars! Inside stairs unsafe for elderly-wood colors deceiving of step locations.
