Vacation Home Rental Description:



Pirates Paradise Beach Home, 5 BRs, Ocean Views, Small Private Pool

Ahoy, maties! Welcome to Pirates' Paradise, our big beach house perched on the point where the ocean meets the St. Augustine Harbor inlet. Amazing views, abundant wildlife, and easy access to sightseeing and fine dining all make this a great place to stay.

Pirates' Paradise sits in a natural Eden of waterfront beauty called Porpoise Point (and you will see plenty of playful dolphins!) where pelicans glide by in long stately lines, shore birds call, and even the occasional manatee swims past. From here you can see the historic St. Augustine Lighthouse and Anastasia Island. The landscape here is simply unforgettable!

You can tell at a glance that Pirates' Paradise was designed for large families and lots of fun. The sparkling small pool has a sturdy safety fence around it, and plenty of sunbathing space. There's an outdoor shower, so the sand stays outdoors. Big wide balconies on the second and third stories offer plenty of room for the whole gang to toast the moonlight and gaze at ocean views during the day. An elevator makes getting up and down each level easy and quick. And the furnishings are very comfortable, with luxury in mind.

The first place you'll fall in love with is the master suite, occupying much of the third storey. It looks like a penthouse, with banks of floor-to-ceiling windows, a private oceanfront balcony, and an en-suite bathroom. A king-sized bed, HDTV, and full wet bar occupy this room, while the sun-splashed bath contains dual vanities, a soaking tub, walk-in shower, a separate area for the commode, and sliding glass doors to the patio. This is your sanctuary, a restful retreat after adventure-filled days.

The third floor contains three more bedrooms and two additional full bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms each contain two twin beds. The biggest of the remaining bedrooms, which doubles as a play area, contains 2 single beds, each with a trundle, along with a game table and terrific views of the dunes and water. The third floor offers a quiet sanctuary for guests to rest and relax away from the activity on the main floor or to just enjoy some great views while winding down from the day?s events.

The second floor of Pirates' Paradise contains an additional large bedroom with king size bed and full bath., a centrally located half bath, and the living, dining, kitchen and laundry areas. Beautifully designed and filled with sunlight, this is a cheerful and busy place, ideal for your large group. Up to 2 more people will sleep well on the convertible sofa bed in the living room.

The living area spans the entire front of our house, with multiple glass doors leading out to the long porch. Natural vegetation is all that stands between you and the water here, and you will love lazing away an afternoon in one of the rockers on the porch, watching boats float by and birds dip in and out of the underbrush. The murmur of the surf and the tang of salt in the balmy air are intoxicating!

When it's time to come inside, enjoy a movie on our HDTV with DVD player, get up a family game on the large game table, or enjoy an evening of reminiscences. Our furniture divides the room into 2 separate areas. No matter where you sit, you have an amazing view.

You will love the well-stocked kitchen at Pirates' Paradise, with a central island and glasstop stove We have both a formal dining table and a breakfast nook for your meals, but you may find yourself slipping out to the porch to dine al fresco. Who can resist such views?

Yet despite its uncrowded lands' end location, Pirates' Paradise is also very convenient to historic downtown St. Augustine, and is within walking distance of a brand new (Jan 2012) supermarket, the Vilano Beach pier (with great fishing and watercraft rentals) and several superb local restaurants. It's the best of both worlds, and your greatest problem while staying here will be trying to explore all the fantastic places around you!

Pirates' Paradise is a unique house, perfectly situated for maximum enjoyment of the incredible natural beauty

St. Augustine
Vadis S. from Greeneville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2014
We were in St. Augustine for my daughters destination wedding. Family wanted a place to hang out and visit for a few days following the wedding and this was the perfect place. Lots of space - we spent most of our time on the balcony watching beachcombers. A grocery store is around the corner. We were over twelve people, so our overflow spent the nights at the nearby hotel and came over to visit during the day. It was a delightful place for our group.

Happy with location & size. Not happy with cleanliness & security
Marian C. from Fruitlen Park, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014
The home was spacious & location was great.But that's were it ends. We had huge issues with the cleanliness upon arrival and security (break in) 3rd night of stay.I have written a letter to Vacation Rental Pros as well as the home owner Bryan & Wendy Potthoff outlining the issues. I would suggest Vacation Rental Pros check on the cleaning crew as well as change your code to the home after each rental.

Nice Family Vacation
A guest from Sanford, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014
The house had plenty of room for a mini family reunion. The elevator was convenient to have. It was conveniently located on the beach, close to a grocery store, and about a 10-15 drive to downtown St. Augustine. The views of the ocean and passing ships and the lighthouse in the distance were beautiful. The part of the beach the house is on was never crowded. The pool was a little smaller than we thought, but it was a good hangout to beat the summer heat. We did agree to allow some maintenance to be done during our stay. It turned out to be more of a construction project and it put a damper on the end of our stay. The whole yard was in disarray, alternate parking wasn't convenient, and the cable/internet was disconnected the last two days of our trip. We would consider staying here again, but not agree to any maintenance during our trip.

Awesome family vacation!
A guest from Pompano Beach, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014
This was the perfect house four our 4 family vacation! We were there for a week and would definitely recommend it. It was exactly as described. The beach was right out front and even though the pool was small we had 10 people in at once! It was very clean and the ac was cold! The whole week was perfect. No problems at all. The elevator was a necessity for our mom with her walker. We could not have had a better time in a better place. Would definitely come back!

A Beautiful Walk on the Beach
Patricia H. from Loganville, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014
The picture of this house does not do it justice. The views are breathtaking and you will find yourself sitting on the beautiful porches every chance you get. It rained part of every day we were there but even that was enjoyable because of the porches. We had first class seats to the spectacular thunder storms. The pool is small but is big enough for the grandkids to have fun in and big enough to float in. My family found it very enjoyable and kept the little ones entertained for hours when we weren't on the beach or sight seeing. This was our third summer to stay in a beach house in St. Augustine. This was by far the best maintained house we have stayed in. The rooms are large and we loved the 4 1/2 baths. I would recommended this home to anyone with a large family or large groups. My only cons was the elevator that was tricky to work, not enough garbage cans for such a large house and the kitchen utensils need to be updated including the knives. More rocking chairs need to be added on the porches. Overall, we loved to the house and the location is spectacular.

Perfect Family Retreat
Morris and Gale F. from West Palm Beach, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
The rental was exactly as promised. We were 5 siblings plus their spouses and our 80 year old mother. There was plenty of space for us all to have our private times yet the central living space was big and comfortable. Watching the action on the beach from the 2nd and 3rd floor balconies was a favorite activity . There was an issue with the elevator on Sunday. It was fixed on Monday. We used the gas grill several times. The outdoor shower kept the beach sand out of the house. Would definitely come back again.

Pirates paradise is truly a paradise.
Dave G. from Alexandria, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
Awesome house in an awesome location.Clean and well furnished.Really, really a nice property, however there were a few things that needed attention.We had planned to grill dinner on several nights, but when we tried to light the gas grill we noticed that it was not in working order. We contacted the management company and they replaced the grill with a brand new one, but it was not until the last night of our stay that the new grill arrived, so it really didn't help us out much.Also, the pool furniture is in need of repair or replacement. Both of these issues are minor, but I believe if a rental property has amenities such as a gas grill or pool lounges, someone should take the time to insure that they are in working order; otherwise remove them.The third issue was as amusing as it was annoying- there were a family of nesting Morning Doves on the Master balcony, and I mean they had made the entire Master Bedroom balcony their nest. Mom, Dad and two larger babies were on they balcony, the chairs and the railings 24/7. The entire Master balcony was covered in bird poop, which made it unusable. This was unfortunate as the balcony faced the ocean and would have been a very relaxing place to spend time.Again these issues were minor and the house was overall a 10 out of 10. Hopefully the management company will read this and proactively inspect all elements of the property to insure that everything is perfect before their guests arrive.

Linda S. from Chattanooga, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014
Our spread out family gets together for one week out of the year. With 2 daughters and their families in Colorado and 1 in Knoxville, putting together a vacation that works for everyone is quite a process. The accommodations at Pirates Paradise met everyone's needs. We had plenty of family gathering room, great porches with view of family members coming and going from the beach, very convenient to grocery (we found we could walk there quicker than we could drive!)and close in to town. The house was perfect for all we had going on and the management team was easy and pleasant to work with as well as extremely professional and quick to get back to me with answers to questions.

Pirates Paradise a plus with some pitfalls
Donna M. from Havertown, PA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
The location of the rental was ideal, although the description should include mention that the beach is on/adjacent to the inlet. The major drawbacks were old furnishings in the LR, old mattresses and linens, minimal beach chairs (NO beach towels), and WORST OF ALL, an overflowing, unsanitary, unsightly septic system in the front of the house.

Lovely house with exquisite view!
Elizabeth H. from Greer, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
Everything was fine except a shower broke on our first evening, and we had much, much difficulty getting help! When water is running constantly, one needs help immediately, but maintenance was extremely slow in responding. Had my husband not found a tool in his car and finally got the water cut off, it would have run for 24 hours. We realize things like that will happen now and then, but the response should be faster.

good trip but house needs work
A guest from Acworth, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
My family and I stayed here for 7 days, we loved St Augustine, loved the history and the shops, all of the trees and enjoyed the beach very much. One downside to the beach is the police. There is no alcohol allowed on the beach, which is important to know before you go because the fines are steep. The police sit with telescopes in their cars watching people and are not friendly at all. We really did love the beach though, we saw dolphins, collected shells, rode the waves, it was beautiful. We enjoyed watching the ships and also saw the super moon out there which was amazing. The house needed a lot of work. The elevator broke twice, we told the maintenance people we needed it fixed, one of our family members had knee surgery and the only way in the house is with stairs without an elevator. It was upsetting that they did not respond and we actually had to call them back to remind them to send someone. It was frustrating. A few times during the week on the balcony and in the pool we noticed an awful smell. The sewage was overflowing all over the driveway and was unavoidable. The smell was horrendous. The company did send someone out but late at night and then it started doing it again a day later. The ceiling fan was missing a blade in one of the rooms and the front of the oven was completely falling off to the point where it was dangerous with metal sticking out everywhere. We had small children so it was a concern constantly. That was never fixed. The pool lights didn't work so we couldn't use the pool at night because you couldn't see anything out there. The house was definitely a disappointment for the amount we paid, but we did enjoy St Augustine. I feel the company could have cared more about all of the inconveniences and time spent working around the issues. I manage a business at home and wanted a care free vacation.

Great place for small family reunion!
A guest from Marietta, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
Wonderful view and perfect beach for our family group. Well-stocked with all essentials. Elevator was an asset. Overall, we agreed with previous guests that beds were uncomfortable. However, mattresses were replaced just in time for one comfortable night.

Great home!
John H. from pineville, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013
Absolutely loved this house! The views are terrific, the location phenomenal. We had our parent's 65 wedding anniversary reunion at this home. 20 people in terrible weather (everyone had to be indoors) and yet, never did we feel cramped. The 2nd floor main level allowed my dad to never have to take the stairs and the elevator was the BEST! Made loading and unloading easy! Would recommend this home to anyone!

Awesome stay for our daughter's wedding! Loved the house, but the beds are terrible. Very uncomfortable and noisy. Every time you move in any of the beds they are loud. For such a gorgeous house the master bed was the worst. Would stay here again, despite the beds.

Loved the location but need a better cleaning service.
A guest from Tallahassee, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012
My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time at Pirates Paradise. The location was wonderful and the layout and size of the house was perfect for 12 women to share. Our only complaint was the cleanliness of the house. It was filthy especially the floors, refridgerator, kitchen sink and counters. We also had an ant problem while staying there. Although the rental company sent someone out on a Saturday to spray and correct the problem, it did not work and we were disappointed to have to make that call in the first place. I would recommend this house but request that the rental company evaluate their cleaning services.

Saint Augustine Property
A guest from Miami, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012
Property was nice overall. Good location. Pool was a little smaller than expected. Property isn't directly on the beach. The beach is across the street. The only problem we had was at checkin. The lockbox was not on the door handle like the instructions said. Instead it was on the railing. There is a lockbox on the door but that must be for a realtor. It took us 20 minutes to find the other lockbox. Wish the instructions were clearer about the location.

Enjoyable late-summer retreat
Sharon B. from Jacksonville, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012
I had a wonderful time at the beach house. The house was very spacious and accommodated the children and adults nicely. At various times during the week we had up to 9 adults and 5 children and we never felt crowded. Enjoying morning coffee overlooking the ocean is a breath-taking way to start each morning. The walk down the path to the beach was very short...there was only one house closer to the sand! We cooked all of our meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. We filled the tank in the gas the next renter is all set! The only recommendation I would have is that the mattresses could use replacing. They were not the most comfortable...but that was really the only thing I would suggest changing. Overall, it was a wonderful gathering with my family and the memories of watching the children laugh and play together on the beach warmed my heart. A great time was had by all!

Family in Paradise
Terry S. from Lebanon, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
Having this as a first time vacation with myself and my two daughters families, this was the perfect spot. The location was incrediable easy access to the beach, saftey was never an issue. The kids could swim on a protected beach and fishing was just wonderful fun for the whole family. We could sit on the decks and watch the fishing boats go out while we were having our A.M. coffee and also watch the Dolphins as they were feeding. The same with the evening, spending time fishing off the beach, sitting on the deck watching the light house beams, swimming in the pool or just listening to the waves hit the beach what a perfect spot. The house was large enough for the 11 of us to not be in each others space but it had a few minor issues that we all overlooked because of how perfect and special our time together was. We were also so close to the grocery store and wonderful sight-seeing. The location was perfect!Would I recommend this propery ? Yes I would, would I go back? In a heartbeat!

Wilson Family Vacation
Robert W. from Neptune Beach, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
The swimming pool was deceiving. It was more the size of a large hot tub as opposed to a regular swimming pool. The beach area was not as nice as other beaches along the Florida coast. It had much more broken and ground up shelss as opposed to pure white sand. You can't get a better view than you can from the master bedroom on the 2nd floor. It was awesome at night seeing the lighthouse and beautiful in the morning seeing the boats traveling out of the inlet. The location near the Publix grocery store is very handy. Finally, it is a great house for spending family time as the kitchen opens up into the dining area and living space. Great place for family time and fun. Also, there was plenty of parking. Overall it isi a great location/property with only an average beach facility/walk (long walk to the beach. Perhaps a little over-priced, but a nice place to vaaction.

The real truth!!
Jackie D. from Virginia beach, VA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
This property was described as a luxury rental. The property was very worn and so were the beds. The linens had holes in them and the king pillows only had one king pillow case the other was a standard on a king pillow!!! The pool is the size of a large hot tub, not at all like the picture. The living room area was very nice and open and the master had a great view but the blinds are broken and will not go up and down. This property could be really nice but it needs attention.

Maintenance issues
Bonnie M. from Coral Springs, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
The house is beautiful scenery gorgeous, lots of room, but we had 14 people no working TV in living area. Reported the first day, no response until 3 rd day. Co cast down, we made arrangements for repair. TV not replaced until 5 th day. Dishwasher didn't work ALL WEEK, 14 people! Repairman sent out on 5 th day, left, said he needed part. Never returned. Reported soffetts had blown off during windstorm leaving a piece banging all night. Someone looked at it but nothing done. Some areas could have been cleaner. For the cost of this rental, and the number of people accomedated these issues were important to address immediately. They weren't.
