Description for Pirate's Paradise
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. Note: one-week minimum stay requires Saturday arrival

Pirates' Paradise sits in a natural Eden of water front 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 first and second floors 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 second floor. 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 second floor also 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 and terrific views of the dunes and water. The second 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 first 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 two 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, play a card game, or enjoy an evening of reminiscences. Our furniture divides the room into two 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 glass top 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 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 of Vilano Beach.

Reviews for Pirate's Paradise
Had a great time.
The house was nice and clean. We basically had our own private beach on the inlet side. The pool was small but there was a small rip tide pool cut in on the inlet beach and it was incredible. Lots to see and do. My 6, 7, and 10 yr olds even loved the sight seeing.

Instructions for tv’s were not available. Not enough towel racks in bathrooms.
Well furnished and comfortable. Loved the view and accessibility to beach. Swimming pool was great for grandchildren. Elevator a big plus. Would love to rent again next summer.

Beautiful home on the beach
Loved spending time with my family in this lovely home in St Augustine. Plenty of space for everyone. Loved the rocking chairs on the balcony. Only downside was the tractors dredging on the beach the whole time we were there.

Absolutely fabulous house!
This is an absolutely fabulous house, approximately 3200 square feet. There were 10 of us--6 adults and four kids ages 8-12--and we all loved absolutely every minute of our week there, June 9-16, 2018. The beach was a lot closer than it looked in the photos. I think that's because the photos could have been taken with a camera lens that realtors use to make rooms look larger. I'm going to comment on a few things that might help you before you go to Pirate's Paradise. Unless you ride the elevator, you will have about 20 steps up to the house. Bring extra kitchen towels, dish rags, and potholders. There were 3 of each, and we needed more than that before we could get the provided ones washed. You'll also need dishwashing detergent (there's a tiny bottle of Palmolive provided), and dishwasher detergent (enough for 3 loads provided). Bring better trash bags. The 3-4 provided were somewhat flimsy and leaked. Each person is only given one bath towel, one bath washrag, and one hand towel for the week. So unless you want to wash towels twice a day, you might want to bring some of your own. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware, dishes, utensils, etc. There were 10 of us, and there were enough dishes provided that we could eat two meals before we needed to wash dishes. Also plenty of dinner glasses, juice glasses, and coffee mugs. There was also a hand mixer, strainer for pasta, plenty of pots all sizes for cooking. We couldn't always find a lid that fit a certain pot, but it was no problem. There was nothing like Rubbermaid or Tupperware to store leftover food in. Don't forget to bring Ziploc bags. There was no electric can opener, but we found a small manual one in one of the drawers. As for the ice maker, it doesn't work. Hopefully the owners will address that and get it fixed. However, you might want to plan to buy ice or bring several ice trays. There were 4-5 silicone ice trays provided, but they were for very small cubes. And when you go to use the dishwasher, be assured that the detergent compartment in the dishwasher door will close, but not easily. You have to finesse it and shut it slowly. Also, unless they have replaced the dishwasher, don't expect all the dishes to get clean. Inspect them before putting them up.  Elevator was a fabulous thing to have. But you MUST read every word of the directions posted on the outside of the elevator door, more than once, to be able to use it. It took two of us, both college graduates lol, close to an hour to figure everything out about the elevator.  There was an outdoor grill. I think the information provided said it was a charcoal grill, but it's gas. The propane tank was empty, and previous users didn't clean it very well. The TV setting for watching TV channels is HDMI2 (I think I remember that correctly). To watch the Blu-Ray player, use HDMI3. Their TV provider is DirecTV. Hope your week is as great as ours was.
