It’s an easy decision to book the rental that’s totally renovated and outfitted, top to bottom, with the makings of your perfect family vacation. Chiquita’s Sun House is a 4-bedroom house with a gold-medal rating, so invite your best group of up to 14 people and dive into your heated private pool!<br />
Outdoors you get twice the chance to enjoy Florida’s beautiful sunshine. Not only in and around the large (13‘X26’) private pool but also upstairs, on a veranda furnished as a comfortable outdoor living space. With ceiling fans, a huge L-shaped couch and view to the pool below, it’s the perfect place for the lazy mornings you’re dreaming of. In the afternoon after you’ve had enough sun, pile on to the outdoor couch or armchair, as your appointed bar-tender mixes up some easy refreshments.<br />
Indoors, the heart of the house is the newly redecorated living room. Rarely can such a tailored space simultaneously be so cheerful? Mirrors, tasteful lighting fixtures and lovely accents in pops of ocean colors set a stunning scene against gleaming hardwood floors. Indeed, Chiquita’s Sun House is a magazine-pretty space that’s ready to bring you and your family together. Two large white couches face each other across a coffee table perfect for board games and sharing snacks.<br />
Against the wall, facing the fireplace and TV is the third couch. Floor cushions are scattered on a beautiful blue and white rug so there’s always room for more. The room is lit with fantastic natural light all year but, once the sun goes down, you’ll really love the fireplace (especially in the winter or over the holidays). Need more? There’s a flat screen TV hanging just above.<br />
The kitchen is fully updated – a gorgeous example of the perfect white kitchen you’ve probably pinned on Pinterest. An L-shaped counter ends in a versatile breakfast bar. Between this and the open-plan living area, a large dining table seats eight (so who’s cooking?).<br />
The key to any great vacation home: tons of sunshine and even more flexibility. As such, the four bedrooms at Chiquita’s Sun House will suit both a small family or a large group of up to 14 guests. A master bedroom rewards your matriarch/patriarch, while bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 offer a choice of queen bed, four bunk beds and a sleeper sofa/day bed combo.<br />
This gold-rated property is ready to spoil you with extras, and free Wi-Fi is just the start! Ample parking, a washer/dryer, HDTV and air conditioning ensure you’re always as comfortable as you are entertained.<br />
With fantastic proximity to miles of white beach, historic downtown St. Augustine and dozens of day trip ideas (we can’t recommend Kennedy Space Center highly enough), Chiquita’s Sun House scores A+ for location. Yet, once you have a drink in hand in your backyard private pool or pile all together on the living room’s three coaches – will you ever leave your family’s Vacation HQ?
