Introducing, our newest vacation home, “The Sailfish Cottage”. This home is new on the vacation home rental market with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. ALL bedrooms and common areas are on the ground floor.
Simply put, staying at “The Sailfish Cottage” is a fun! This is the only oceanfront home we manage that you don’t have to go up and down a flight of steps. All the common living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms are all on the ground floor. Getting to the beach is almost as easy. We have pavers from the large screened porch to the seawall where there are only about 5 easy steps down to the beach.
Great location, it’s the best of all worlds, first a very private beach, less than 7 minutes from 3 very good restaurants and only about 15 minutes to “Castillo de San Marcos”, known to the locals as, “The Old Fort”. The fort was built approximately 325 years ago and is the center of the St Augustine activities. St Augustine has become known for its vast array of culinary delights. A few examples are the upscale and famous, “The Columbia” established in 1905 with authentic Spanish dishes and Costa Brave with Mediterranean food If you prefer not to go “upscale”, test out some local favorites, “Cap’s” and “Aunt Kates” are about a 6 minute drive or 15 minutes away are “The Ice Plant” “Cellar 6” and many more.
The “Sailfish Cottage” is perfect for a honeymoon couple or a getaway for up to 3 couples. It is also perfect for small families or multiple generations when the grandparents and / or the young children who don’t like to go up and down steps.
As soon as you walk in the front door, look straight ahead to the living room with the large sliding glass doors with great ocean views. Right away you know this is a special beach home.
The living room has very comfortable seating with room for the family and / or friends with views of the Great Atlantic Ocean. After a day of sun, surf and fun there is a huge TV over the fireplace for your viewing pleasure.
Left of the foyer is the dining area with plenty of room for your family and friends to enjoy a great meal. Conveniently situated past the dining area is the tastefully remodeled kitchen complete with beautiful granite counters and prep bar. There is plenty of counter space to prepare a gourmet meal, catch of the day or burgers that you can cook from the complementary gas grill.
From the living area is a split bedroom arrangement, to the left is the master bedroom complete with a queen-sized bed, a private ocean view. and bathroom with a large shower.
On the opposite side of the living room is a hallway that leads to Bedroom #2 on the left. This bedroom has a king-sized bed AND great views of the amazing Atlantic Ocean.
Across the hall is the nicely decorated Bedroom #3 with a full-sized bed and ceiling fan. At the end of the hall is the hall or common full bathroom with a tub/shower combination.
The “main attraction” is when you step out the double glass sliding doors onto the screened porch. Immediately you will hear the roar of the surf and waves breaking on the shore. There is nothing like watching the sunrise over the ocean with the dolphins jumping out of the water and the pelicans flying in formation and diving into the ocean for their breakfast. The sights, the sounds and the smell of the ocean breeze is an experience that you will never forget.
If you happen to be here for a full moon rise, you will be amazed how large the orange ball of light is when it breaks through the horizon, reflecting onto the ocean
The fully covered and screened porch is a perfect place to enjoy a meal, morning coffee or if you are so inclined an afternoon/evening cocktail. Also, when you have had enough sun, a great place to just kick back and relax. Afterall, you are on vacation!
The back yard is completed fenced! While the adults are relaxing on the screened in porch, the children can play in the backyard without you having to worry about them falling off the seawall or going to the ocean without you knowing.
Sorry dog lovers, this is NOT a pet friendly home! The upside is no "wet dog smell" and if you or your child have allergies and/or asthma this home is perfect for you!
If you go out the screen door there is an open patio with a picnic table where you can enjoy the sun while you enjoy a meal with your family and/or friends. From the patio is steppingstones straight to the gate of the fence to your own private beach access. You can grab a boogie board and ride some waves or take a swim. This is a great beach to find some fantastic seashells and shark’s teeth, or just take a nice relaxing walk. BTW, surf fishing is great fun! New to surf fishing?
