Breathtaking Sunrises AT THE 1930's Artist Cottage 100 FT. TO THE SEA

Family fun at the shore
We fell in love with this enchanting cottage because of its vintage quality and location, 100 ft. to the sea.. It is a sweet old cottage that we have totally renovated. You walk out the door and within steps you are at the sea.

This is an old fashioned 1930's beach cottage with lots of privacy as it is totally fenced in. We've hired a talented gardener/ designer who uses Florida native beach flowers and grasses to create a casual shore setting.

Come and relax at our 1930’s totally renovated cottage by the sea. We've decorated it with charming vintage finds. Including chandeliers that light up the patio area at night creating a magical setting for romance and family fun.
We love sitting on the deck at night feeling the breezes off the ocean.

Immerse yourself in the world of Old Florida, the way it used to be. Grab your coffee and watch the miracle of a sunrise as the dolphins play and the pelicans fly overhead. Sometimes you will see a couple of the locals fishing and it's fun to check if they "got lucky" yet. It's so peaceful walking along our quiet beach to the inlet where you can see the old St Augustine lighthouse on the other shore and other historical sites.

Many activities are available at the beach...parasailing, fishing, kayaking, boating. Why not sail on the pirate ship “Black Raven' If you sail on Wednesday it docks at Aunt Kate’s restaurant for a delicious seafood dinner. We also love walking to our favorite local restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. (We’ll leave you a list). You can walk to our beautiful pier (you can fish from it) too.

Feel like visiting the 16th century? A short ride over the bridge and you are in ancient St. Augustine. The oldest settlement and fort in the USA.

Explore the historical sites and enjoy the family owned restaurants. Take a tour. Either a trolley or a romantic horse and carriage ride.

Fall asleep to the sound of the surf and the swaying palm trees in our hammock on the deck. Yes you can see the ocean from the deck.

Enjoy!

Time in the sun
We were looking for someplace quite and private and this property gave us that and more. No matter where you go at the cottage there is a place to sit in the sun and out of the wind. While is was in the 60s during our trip we still had our coffee and a nap or two outside in the warm sunshine thank to the courtyard . The house was just as advertised and in our view perfect. Housekeeping was great and every little thing you could need was at hand. The beach is only 100 steps away so when feel like walking the beach it is not an issue. We would give the cottage six stars if we could.

5/5 Excellent

Great location and priced right
The house is located beachside about as close to downtown St. Augustine as you can get. Easy trip in/out. Additionally, the house was as advertised (accurately depicted) and very comfortable. Everything works and all amenities needed for a beach vacation are provided. We plan to rebook this house on future visits to this area provided availabilty allows.

5/5 Excellent

What a perfect cottage!
We had a truly wonderful stay in this cute cottage. The check in process was so easy. We loved all the decorations both inside and outside. The beds were comfy and the cottage had everything we needed. Carolyn was a great host and answered all of our questions immediately. We will definitely stay again. Oh yes...the beach is so close and the sunrises were breathtaking.
