Surf 77, 3 Bedrooms, Flat Screen TVs, WiFi, Grill, Sleeps 10, Pet Friendly
Welcome back to the good old days of beach vacations! This charming beach cottage, just a block from the ocean, offers all the comforts of a family home plus all the must-have perks from WiFi to HDTV!
Set back from the road on a big, grassy lawn, this single-storey aqua house exudes beach attitude from the moment you see its hand-painted sign! There's plenty of room in the big driveway for multiple vehicles, and even before you walk in the door, the raised deck with Adirondack chairs and a table invite you to pour a frosty drink and pause a minute. Your vacation has officially begun: you are in a more mellow frame of mind already!
Step inside Surf 77 and find yourself in a cool-toned, breezy, light-filled space, with wooden floors that feel good on your bare toes and ceiling fans that silently twirl in every room, circulating the central air conditioning even more so that you cool down fast when you come in from the heat. The living room has banks of windows on two walls, but can be darkened as your group flops down on the big sectional sofa and overstuffed easy chair to see what's on the HDTV. A little table for two in the back of the room is perfect for gin rummy or a little laptop time. Make yourself at home!
The big kitchen is adjacent to the living room, with gleaming full-sized appliances, lots of counter space, and a long table that can be used for meals or games. (Most meals wind up getting taken out to the front deck or the back patio beneath the big shade tree!) There is plenty of space in here for multiple cooks, and everything a chef would desire for preparing a feast. If you have stayed at vacation houses with poorly stocked kitchen cabinets, rest assured that Surf 77 is prepared for a crowd! The cabinets are packed with pots and pans, dishes and glasses, utensils and chef's tools. No running out to pick up a colander or a paring knife here!
There is even a dry bar in the kitchen, a vintage hutch fully stocked with everything you need to concoct delicious cocktails and fancy drinks! A wine fridge reposes here, ready to chill your finest bottles. What more could Surf 77 offer to delight you?
Well, great sleeping quarters would be a boon, and luckily that's just what this house has. It sleeps ten, with two taking the futon in the entryway. There are three bedrooms, two full baths, and the promise of a great night's sleep to be had by all! And of course, all linens, pillows, and blankets are provided for every bed (including the futon), plus all towel sets for both bathrooms. Pack light!
The master bedroom is pastel toned, with a luxurious queen-sized bed among big windows and beneath a ceiling fan. A barn door separates this room from the common area of the house, and there's plenty of storage space. The bathroom is en-suite, and is truly exceptional: a tiled walk-in shower has a pretty mosaic pattern and hand-held nozzles that make every shower into a massage!
The second bedroom is so pretty, with warm colors and lots of light. The queen-sized bed faces a flat-screen TV for late-night viewing, and there is plenty of closet space.
The third bedroom is ideal for kids or friends. There is a double bed here as well as two twins, another flat-screen TV, and a cheery beach mural on the closet doors. Everything is light, bright, and pretty -- ideal for visitors of all ages to feel right at home. Please note, there is no cable available for the TV in this room.
The second and third bedrooms share the second full bath with the common area. This bathroom has both a shower and tub option. And you never have to worry about tracking beach sand into Surf 77: there is an outdoor shower in a secluded, fenced area of the backyard, where you can take off your swimsuit and get clean after a day on St. Augustine's beautiful beaches! Toss your wet clothes into the washer and dryer in the big laundry room, and you're done.
Surf 77 is a great place for a family beach vacation. Its laid-back vibe and updated appliances, electronics, and furnishings make a perfect combination: the best of old and new. You will love staying away from the crowds, yet just a two-minute stroll from the beach! Reserve your time here now, while availability is still good. See you in the surf!
