Lovely little beach house!
Reviewed on Saturday, May 7, 2016
You can tell this Beachhouse has been recently remodeled. And that they spared no expense on nice furnishings and fixtures - except for the bathrooms (leaky bathtub faucet) and the beds. The quality and size of the mattresses (uneven double size) was enough to keep us from staying here again, even though everything else was perfect. And it is perfect: right on the beach, built in firepit, modern and fully equipped kitchen, outdoor shower, smart TV that we were able to link to our Netflix account, washer & dryer. I completely recommend - so long as sharing a lumpy double bed with your spouse isn't a problem!
Relaxing and comfortable

My 2 adult children and i were in town for a family wedding. Seashell was iust what we needed. A place to relax from all our hard work in NY. Everything was there that we needed. The house was clean and comfortable. I've been renting homes for bacation for the past 25 yrs and i certainly would come back to seashell!!
Direct ocean front vacation

This was the perfect stay for our first family vacation. The private beach access, simple decor on the inside and no large decks made it ideal for having little ones. The facility was clean and updated very nicely, which we liked. There were a few minor upkeep items that needed to b addressed such as the lighting fixture in the front guest bedroom, the bath bathroom drain needed to be cleaned out, and the weatherstripping around the bathroom door needing to be replaced. These are all minor items, overall this was a great place to stay and we would definately stay here again.
Private and cozy!

Overall we loved the place and may come back. The breaker box is ancient and if you use the toaster and the coffe maker at the same time you throw a breaker! The beach is soooo private! We had a good time once we figured out the breaker code. TV in master bed room did not work. Called, but no one ever came out. Still.... we didn't come for tv!

We were very pleased with all this house had to offer. The beach is your backyard, it was very clean, and very quiet which we enjoyed for a vacation. Also the location to everything was great as well.

Had a wonderful stay with my husband and two young kids. Only negative is the beds were small a king would be nice. And the location is also very busy road so keep an eye on your children. But the house is lovely and the view was unbeatable!

We were delighted the moment we walked into the house. It looked so warm and cozy. The house was very clean and the furniture looked new. Except for the matresses on the full beds, they lacked a bit of support. The kitchen was well equipped and beautifully designed. The beach is just a few steps away and we enjoyed walking along. Eventhough we had a week of rain and cloudy days the house was the perfect place to relax. The location is so convenient. Just a short drive to Publix and historic St. Augustine. Two problems; the TV had no sound (it was eventually fixed) and the house has no cell phone reception.
Small but great location.

You can not beat the location, it was like having our own private beach. We loved the patio/screened porch and yard area, but especially the access to the beach. Very nicely done on the inside with plenty of seating for 5 people, even if he house itself is small. I would highly recommend a queen bed, even if you lose a little floor space, with a new mattress, in the bedroom to the left. Also, spend the extra money and increase the channel lineup on the TV. Thank goodness it is a Smart tv with Netflix. The screened porch is wonderful. Make sure the front outside lighting works and I would mark the entrance to the house better, it's difficult to find at night. Overall we had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our visits to St. Augustine. Housekeeping provided good customer service, although I did not receive a response from maintenance.
Fantastic Home with a great beach and view!

We spent our spring break at the home in March 2015 and it was fantastic. The home was updated but held its original charm. The kitchen was great for cooking and easy to clean. We enjoyed the outdoor porch and patio. We spent alot of time on the beach walk benches enjoying the ocean. The kids found shells and starfish on the beach. The furniture was comfortable and cozy. We would come back anytime. Very nice.

Really enjoyed my time in your lovely home. I could tell great care was taken in furnishing and preparing this home for rental. The location cannot be beat. I really liked the fact that it had a nice yard in back, in addition to the beach of course! Would love to head back sometime in the future. Only comment would be to update the mattresses...while they were fine, I would have liked a newer, firmer one.
everything we hoped for!!!

This was a first time experience at a real get- away. Being always too busy to pick up and go, especially with a business, college kids, dogs, and our own pool to care for. We had wanted to go in July, but we dragged our feet and everything quickly got booked. We were ready to give up when we came across this suprise! We couldn't have planned this on purpose it was great.!! If you want closeness to the beach, a cute clean bungalow,then you need not look anymore. I didn't like the beach till this trip! Great location great fun we will do it again and again !
Seashells is an ocean front GEM!!!

From the screened porch facing the ocean, to the complete & modern kitchen, to the vaulted beam living room, this home has everything you need. Someone spent a ton of money and a lot of thought to make this an ideal place for a family to spend a relaxed, trouble free vacation.
