Meet your new family beach house! Featuring a private pool, big yard, high-tech kitchen, and redecorated rooms throughout, this charming family home is just right for your St. Augustine adventures!
Summertime Sanctuary sits between the Matanzas River and Salt Run, and is just minutes by car from St. Augustine's gorgeous white-sand beaches. The garage is full of surfboards and bikes (and there's still room to keep your car here, too!) that you are welcome to use to explore sea and sand. And there's always water waiting for you at home, thanks to the private pool in your own backyard.
Comfortably sleeping 8 in 3 bedrooms and a queen-sized futon in the living room, Summertime Sanctuary has the look of a high-tech, newly remodeled house combined with the feel of a laid-back, beloved family dwelling. The smooth gray flooring may remind you of driftwood; the sage green and sea blue walls evoke the ocean; the lazily spinning ceiling fans strike a peaceful rhythm. After a long day at the beach or exploring St. Augustine's historical sites and great shops, Summertime Sanctuary earns its name as a haven of cool and quiet restfulness!
The big living room here has room for the whole group to sprawl out and get comfortable on two sofas and the futon. A huge HDTV with cable package promises entertainment, and plantation shutters keep the sunshine at bay. There's plenty of floor space here for the kids to line up the shells they've collected on the beach and start building with their Legos. Enjoy a little much-needed downtime in the middle of a busy Florida vacation!
Adjacent to the living room is the dining area and kitchen. You may end up taking most of your meals outdoors by the pool (there are several tables and chairs, in sun and shade, in the backyard), but should you choose to dine indoors, there is a cheery wooden table as well as the breakfast bar with padded stools. The table doubles as a game-playing area, of course, and the breakfast bar is a great buffet station or prep area for your sous-chefs!
And even if you are determined not to cook during this vacation, the accouterments in the kitchen may just tempt you. Completely remodeled with a high-tech, industrial flair, this beautiful kitchen offers stainless-steel appliances, a charming tile backsplash, focused lighting, and cupboards packed with pots, dishes, glasses, utensils, and all the tools a fine chef needs to prepare just about anything. All you add is groceries and a spirit of invention!
When the last piece of dessert is gone, the wine bottles empty, and dominoes put away for another game, it's time to retire for the night. That's when you will really appreciate the quiet and comfort of this house. The three bedrooms are well appointed but also homey, making everyone in your group feel settled. Open the futon for "campers" in the living room, then retire to the bedrooms.
The master suite is the crowning glory of Summertime Sanctuary. This large room opens onto the deck beside the pool through big, beautiful sliding-glass doors. The queen-sized bed is luxurious. And the loveseat is big enough for you and several small children needing bedtime stories!
The bathroom in the master is en-suite, featuring splendid tiling, large windows, and a big walk-in shower. Towel sets and linens are provided for every bed and bath at Summertime Sanctuary, as well as a washer and dryer to keep them (and all your vacation clothes and beach towels) clean. Pack light and rely on this house to have not only everything you need but extras and spares!
The second bedroom also offers a queen-sized bed and separate sliding-glass door access to the backyard and pool. There's a private flat-screen TV in here as well, and this room shares the second full bathroom with the third bedroom as well as the common areas of the house. This bath contains both a shower and tub option and is beautifully designed.
And the third bedroom is a cozy nook for kids or friends, with 2 twin beds and plenty of running-around space. There's a place just right for everyone at Summertime Sanctuary.
You have free WiFi here, and plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces to sit, dine, and relax. Have fun exploring this friendly family home, splashing in the pool, sunbathing, and enjoying all the perks of new furnishings and the latest decor.
