A hidden gem near historic downtown St. Augustine, our home at Endless Summer House has been completely renovated inside. Its modest curb view conceals brand-new furnishings, appliances, décor, a back garden and a deck! Please Note: 1-week minimum stay, Saturday arrival and Saturday departure in season.
Located on a quiet street just minutes on foot from exciting city sites, Endless Summer House is a single-level home with a nice backyard that sleeps 6 people, with 2 full baths, and a sleeper sofa for up to 2 extra guests. If you enjoy a feeling of quiet and privacy in the midst of a convenient city location -- or if you love cottages bursting with character and beauty -- Endless Summer House is the place you must stay next time you're in Saint Augustine!
On our back deck, you will overlook our large yard. After a busy day of sightseeing, shopping, or business in the city, take a cool drink out to the deck and feel yourself begin to rejuvenate.
Restful and calming, with casual seating and dining space for the whole group, the deck is likely to become your 'anchor' at Endless Summer House, whether you're up at dawn doing tai chi to the sound of the morning birds, working on your laptop (you have free WiFi) in the soft sunshine, or sipping a glass of wine as you count the stars in the balmy night air.
Indoors, Endless Summer House manages to combine the charm of a cottage with the convenience of up-to-the-minute appliances and technology. It's also much bigger than it looks from the front! There is a family room as well as a living room, which makes it very nice when part of your group really wants to cheer for their team during the big game and the other part wants quiet conversation!
The living room is all period charm and beauty, with polished wood floors, and soft walls that filter the sunlight, and graceful lamps. This is the place to lose yourself in a novel, have an all-night conversation with an old friend, or simply sit and enjoy the serenity. Children tend to flop onto the rug with a bag of Legos or a handful of little cars and play for hours.
The family room, on the other hand, is made for pure enjoyment, with wooden floors that feel so good to hot feet that have walked all day, comfy furniture, a stereo, and a big new HDTV with DVD player. Many lively games of charades have been played in this room, and it's the perfect place to let the kids drag all the blankets and pillows and stuffed animals for a 'sleepover' in front of the big TV.
Our dining room is adjacent to the family room and convenient to the kitchen. It doesn't see many meals -- those usually get carried out to the deck! -- but it's a great place for board games, a workstation, or organization center. Go ahead: spread out your maps and brochures and coupons and get your vacation really rolling!
The kitchen has been completely renovated, and you will love the gleaming appliances, wood flooring and cabinetry, and fully stocked cookware cupboards and utensil drawers. Don't bring a thing except for food -- everything else is here, just waiting to be of use! And of course we've got a microwave, coffeemaker, blender, and all the other useful time-savers that get you out of the kitchen a bit sooner.
The very best part of our house is the bedrooms. Nothing is more important than a good night's sleep, and everyone will be comfortable here. The master suite offers a queen-sized bed in a room with long windows and a TV. The master bath is charming.
The second bedroom has two twin beds. We have a second full bathroom, plus all the linens, blankets, pillows, and towels you will need at Endless Summer House. Our washer and dryer are at your disposal, so pack light!+ More
