Great restful stay!
Review Date: January 1, 1970
Vacation Date: July 18, 2020
"Our stay at Whales Rest was everything we hoped for. The open kitchen/den area made family gatherings comfortable. Lots of windows for seeing the beautiful beach. Owners were amazing host and quick to respond to any questions as we prepared for our stay. Felt like we had our own private beach. When we wanted to venture out, it was and easy ride to St. Augustine. Hope to go back and stay again.

Wonderful time at “Watermelon”
Review Date: January 1, 1970
Vacation Date: March 27, 2021
"We had a fantastic time at Watermelon. 2 families with teenagers for 8 total stayed and had plenty of room! The outdoor space here is amazing! Pool and hot tub were heated with fancy light schemes at night. We watched a really intense college basketball game at the tiki bar and it felt like our own sports bar! Took kayaks out to see a couple of dolphins in the inlet. Did many beach walks and 4 minute walk to the beach and very private. Teenagers took advantage of the boogie boards on the property and ocean with big waves with soft sand bottom. Ample towels and beach chairs and even a rolling cooler so we wanted for nothing! 30 minutes to saint Augustine beach and to downtown historic st Augustine. The property is so well thought out and beautifully designed and decorated. The pics don’t do it justice! We will definitely return to this incredible property!

Exactly what our family needed + more
Review Date: January 1, 1970
Vacation Date: January 27, 2021
"A beautiful vacation rental perfect for our family vacation. Once you're at the house, you don't want to leave. Highly recommend for families and family reunions. There's plenty of areas and rooms where you can spend time together or break off and just do your own thing. The pool, hot tub and water views are awesome. The house is pretty special and feels like a mini resort. Our kids had a great time in the pool and also paddlboarding on the Matanzas Inlet. They even got the chance to see a dolphin from the house.

"Such a gorgeous property to spend some days at with friends. You can't ask for a better house, or better qualities in a vacation home. We stayed at the house the entire time, and felt like it was everything we needed and more. 10/10 other than we didn't know the neighborhood requires quiet outside after 10 pm!
