5/5 Excellent

Just perfect
Stay here! The beach is amazing, and the house is perfect.

4/5 Good

Almost Promising
Nice enough place. We had some issues, a few that were corrected in a timely manner i.e. clogged drain, door lock not working, A/C filters replaced. It was extremely windy on the eastern beaches There was always a strong rip current (red flag), so we were unable to play in the ocean but could walk the beach. The kitchen was well equip and beds were comfortable.

4/5 Good

Sophies Sandcastle
Overall the place was OK but the online images need to be updated and it appeared more beat up. It was clean and pleasant but some annoyances. No corkscrew (we had to go out and buy one), broken lightbulbs that needed to be replace. Only two spares that were hard to find. Beach access excellent and very quiet. Cooking was hard as there was only one tiny cutting board, no large or sharp knife and pans were warped. No saute pan. We found one broken glass in the cabinet. The range seems to have a mind of its own (front right got super hot on low)

4/5 Good

Enjoyable beachfront
The house was what we were looking for - a quiet beachfront getaway. It was far enough away not to have crowds and cars on the beach, yet close enough to drive into St. Augustine and see the sights that were open. We enjoyed our stay as it was right on the beach and the accomodations were comfortable for the 3 of us.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect in every way!
I cannot imagine a more perfect place to stay. Everything was so clean, well appointed, and just steps to the beach! Also, the owner's communications were prompt. Highly recommend.
