Vacation Home Rental Description:



Experience the rich history and amazing beauty of Summer Haven, the barrier island home of our luxurious Afternoon Delight house. You'll enjoy all the modern amenities and lush comfort in the midst of spectacular views and unspoiled wildlife habitats!

Home to just a few properties now, Summer Haven is one of the oldest and most famous beach communities in eastern Florida. It is a haven for nesting turtles, and a fantastic place to watch the sunrise. And at Afternoon Delight, you're just half a block from the beach!

Your first glimpse of Afternoon Delight reassures you that this is going to be a splendidly relaxing, fun vacation. The house is painted a sunny yellow, with a bright green front door, plenty of potted plants, and a nice front yard (with a driveway and big garage to keep your car out of the hot sun!). It feels like coming home, and we want you to make yourselves right at home from the moment you arrive.

You'll find 2 living spaces at Afternoon Delight: the living room, washed in soft warm tones and full of comfy sofas and chairs, and the family room, just as cozy but also sporting a big HDTV and a handsome fireplace. So if the grown ups want to chat while the kids watch a movie, no problem! And if you have a reader in the group who needs someplace quiet to curl up with the latest novel, the living room is just perfect, with sunlight spilling over the couch.

There are also 2 places to eat at Afternoon Delight, though you may find yourself taking a picnic to the beach or dining on the second-story balcony more often than not. Our breakfast nook is a sun-washed room with a round table that may call out to the game players among you. (It's also a great place to set up the laptop; you have free wireless Internet at Afternoon Delight.) The formal dining room is a larger space but also cozy and full of windows. You'll just have to try them both!

Whether you're a gourmet cook or a takeout specialist, you'll love the kitchen at Afternoon Delight. The lovely polished cabinetry, granite countertops, and island sink don't really make the food taste better, but you sure feel like a professional as you whisk around in this designer paradise! Of course you'll find all the cookware, utensils, and dishes you need, along with those time-saving gadgets (microwave, blender, coffee maker) that get you out the door and onto the beach a little faster.

As luxurious and enjoyable as the living and dining spaces are at Afternoon Delight, it's the sleeping area that may really win your heart. All 2 of our bedrooms open onto the second-story balcony, and each has its own bathroom. Add a garden tub to the mix and you have the ideal situation for long lovely evenings and late mornings -- the perfect vacation!

The master bedroom contains a queen-size bed, large TV, and en suite bathroom (home of the garden tub, which sports a private view of the treetops!). There is a walk-in shower as well. Pamper yourself to your heart's content in this suite!

The second bedroom also contains a queen-size bed and en suite bathroom, equipped with both a bathtub and shower. And the third bedroom, also with a queen bed, and features a large TV. All towels, linens, pillows, and blankets are waiting for you here, and we've got a washer and dryer ready as well.

And now the best part of Afternoon Delight: the location! You're less than 1 minute's walk from the beach here, and can hear the lulling sound of the surf from our balcony!

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 Matanzas National Park. It has (free) parking.

Family vacation2014
donna t. from middle river, MD does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
It rained every day. Not much to do in the immediate area. Have to drive 20 or more minutes. Also, I was put off by certain areas of the house, for instance, the dining room was so made up (table set) that it made me feel that we weren't supposed to use that room. Also, I'm used to beach rental properties having beach chairs, bikes, etc. Available to use.

Terrible beach access!
Ann F. from Bloomingdale, IL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
The house was gorgeous and the beach was private and beautiful. However, the beach was almost impossible to access! The property was listed as "steps to the beach" but no mention was made of the fact that there is about a 20-foot drop at the end of the street covered in gigantic, treacherous rocks. Plus, when high tide comes in, the water come right up to the rocks, leaving no place to sit. The only way to access the beach was to walk a few blocks and climb down the dangerous rocks. I was with elderly family members, my toddler, and a baby, and had tons of beach gear. It was a HUGE problem not having easy beach access. I feel we were terribly misled and it almost ruined our very expensive vacation.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Vacation Rental Pros
Hi Anne - Thank you for taking the time to share this information with us. I apologize for the beach access. We do disclose the beach in our write up.

Lovely house, ideally located - right near the beach ...
Derek C. from Wokingham, Berks recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
Great house. Hadn't been cleaned properly but this was rectified quickly and efficiently. All staff we had contact with were lovely. Master bedroom needs curtain/drape/blind for large window to prevent being woken at sunrise and protect guests modesty....overall lovely house in fantastic location...

Property Manager Response:
Response from Vacation Rental Pros
Hi Derek - I just received your feedback and wanted to personally thank you for taking the time to fill out our survey. I apologize for cleaning issues. This is not up to standards. I will contact my house keeper. You and your family are welcome back any time.

Our winter in St. Augustine
Darlene F. from Franklin, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in February, 2012
This was a beautiful house. Housekeeping leaves a great deal to be desired in all rentals. Never as clean as home. Beds were comfortable, but other furniture uncomfortable. Linens were very nice. Not near enough serving dishes, but nice pots and pans. We would rent this house again. Vacationpros did help us find this house but only after a week of phone calls and us having to go to the corporate office to get moved from a very awful condo they had rented to us. Not sure I would use them as a realtor again.
