Vacation Home Rental Description:



St Augustine Artist Retreat in Summer Haven, 3 houses to beach!

Kick back in historic Summer Haven in our vintage cottage, Artist Retreat. Just 3 houses from the beach, our updated bungalow has the feel of an artist's retreat. Offering a big patio and yard, it's full of sunshine and laid-back Old Florida charm!

Light, airy, and thoroughly comfortable, our cottage sleeps 7 in 2 bedrooms and on a sleeper sofa. It's a family home, made for long lazy mornings with the newspaper, endless summer afternoons on the patio with a cold drink, and velvety warm evenings watching the stars come out. Take a deep breath and feel the stress melt away: you're in cozy Summer Haven now, a tiny community nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Matanzas River, with nothing to do but enjoy the beach, the waves, the wildlife, and the perfect weather.

Walk into the sun-soaked living room of Artist Retreat and you'll find an HDTV, relaxed seating, and a table and chairs. This is the place for the whole group to gather, whether it's to watch your favorite movies, play the Settlers of Catan, or simply enjoy one another's company. Interesting art fills the walls, while there's plenty of floor space available for your own projects!

The kitchen may call up nostalgic memories of grandma's place, with its polished shelf above the sink (to display treasures and watch the outside world while washing dishes!), modest but spotlessly clean appliances, and freestanding pantry. Painted in cheerful shades of green and white, it hearkens back to simpler times . . . yet still includes a microwave and coffeemaker for your convenience! Fully stocked with pots and pans, dishes and utensils, it has everything you need to prepare and serve a big meal, should you feel so inclined.

The master bedroom is a special treat at Seagull Cottage. Flooded with sunlight and boasting a firm, luxurious queen-size bed, it has its own access to the outdoors. Want to slip out for a moonlight walk after the kids are asleep, or perhaps run down to the beach to witness the daily miracle of the dawn? --Just pop out the bedroom door, without disturbing a soul!

The second bedroom has plenty of sunshine too, carefully controlled with shades in case you need little ones to go to sleep before the sun sets in high summer! This room may remind you of the summer cabins of your childhood, when all the cousins were piled together in a big space. Here it's just a set of bunkbeds -- a single on top, a double on the bottom -- but the excitement of "camping in" is here. Maybe it's the cheerful red curtains separating the bedroom from the main living area, or the sight of palm trees just outside the windows! Young and old alike will love this room!

All of your sheets, blankets, pillows, and towels are provided here at the house -- don't worry about packing a thing. If you're looking to get away from it all, just toss your swimsuit and a couple changes of clothes into your suitcase, bring the binoculars and the beach toys, and come on over!

Note: Due to Summer Haven beach erosion concerns created by Tropical Storm Faye, there is now an area of large boulders blocking the beach access points closest to the property. This is a matter of much press (and legal battles) as a private home owner did to protect his beach home which in turn blocked the public access point. Although you can walk in between these boulders to access the beach like the locals that live near by, the nearest easy beach access is approximately 1 mile north at Fort Mantanzas National Park. It has (free) paved parking and provides beach access via a meandering boardwalk through the park. It takes approximately 5 minutes to walk this boardwalk

lacking amenities uncomfortable
Dennis Z. from Kewaunee, WI does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 35 days in March, 2014
very dirty cobwebs hanging from ceilings, dog hair all over, large yellow stain on area rug, couch stained and worn out, table very wiggly, kitchen dishes very dusty and dirty, oven filthy, bathroom blind falling apart, drains in sink and tub very slow, light switch in bathroom flickers when turned on, only 1 wash cloth and hand towel, bed very low and uncomfortable, no dressers for clothes, had no smoke alarms until we complained and stated we were going to check with fire department, out door furniture was so rusty we concerned about injury, cockroaches present and required bug control. If place was cleaned and had some comfortable furniture could be a beach vacation retreat.

No Beach Access!
A guest from Casselberry, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013
no beach access. The description states the house is three houses from the beach, but fails to tell you there is NO access. This was very disappointing to my family.

Terrific Location
A guest from Union, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 28 days in January, 2013
The house was in the best location and was exactly as described. Two houses from the water ,although it was a little tricky getting to it due to the rocks. No problems with the house and Vacation Rental Pros responded quickly to WiFi access problem. Pet friendly and friendly neighbors.

"I left my heart at Artist Retreat"
Linda P. from Decatur, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012
This was our "summer" vacation and a great experience. The house was simply furnished, but completely adequate. Large original art pieces were a nice touch; the house was less like a rental and more like a friend's place. Sunrises and star-gazing from the porch and the heated outdoor shower made for special days. The location was perfect--we stayed on A1A for restaurants and supplies. The weather was so amazing that we stayed on the beach and around the inlet rather than taking side trips we planned. Ospreys joined us at sunrise for fresh fish that they liked to show off on phone poles. Lots of other sea birds, gopher tortoises, rabbits(perfect for "tortoise and hare jokes"). Neighbors with dogs added to the fun in the surf. We would love to stay at Art House again and again.

Cute house in beautiful Summer Haven
Julia G. from Orlando, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
The house worked well as a retreat. It's comfortable, mostly clean. Needed an exterminator. It's really 3 houses from the ocean, but not accessible beach. Beach is very close, though, and there's an amazing undeveloped stretch, dog-friendly, absolutely beautiful. I would certainly return.

A Great Month

Stayed for 28 days in June, 2012
Our family of five stayed here while our home in the are was being renovated. It was a terrific location and despite being a bit small, we were still able to entertain friends and families. It had all the aminities we could ask for, including a washer and dryer.

Lovely time in Florida
Clare M. from Toronto, recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012
We arrived to a well maintained property, steps from a beautiful, sparcely populated, clean, white sand beach, that ran for miles in each direction. The grounds and large balcony were enjoyed by our entire family as well as friends who came over to visit. The beds were comfortable, and all appliances (including washer and dryer) were new and well maintained. We had a great time. Even the booking process and information provided was seamless and easy. We highly recommend both the property and Vacation Rental Pros.
