Dog-friendly home w/ beach access & deck - snowbirds welcome!

Couples, small families, and your canine companions alike are sure to have a great time in this seaside Florida home. With a beach just nearby, a wraparound deck to enjoy, and plenty of classic comforts, this Saint Augustine home is sure to impress!

Just over eight miles south of St. Augustine's downtown, your new home away from home for four is surrounded by plenty of Anastasia Island's options for shopping and dining. When you're not exploring the beach just a short stroll away, you can climb the stairs to your raised home's wraparound deck and relax on some cozy beach chairs! Meanwhile, you might even spot the protected Gopher Turtles who burrow around the property!

Plenty of windows throughout the house let the bright Florida sunshine in, which provides an interesting contrast to the low-key colors of the walls and furnishings. Small touches like the hardwood floors and the occasional potted plant give a touch of elegance to the nice, relaxing atmosphere.

When you're done enjoying the wraparound deck, head back inside and kick back in the living room. The plush couches are great for spending time with the kids and snuggling with that special someone, and make for a good vantage point for enjoying entertainment like WiFi and cable, DVDs, and VHS on the flatscreen TV with surround sound.

The dining area table for four is great for family meals and intimate dinners alike! Whatever kind of atmosphere you want for your meal, you're sure to enjoy the food itself thanks to the kitchen, fully equipped with modern appliances.

Four lucky guests (and, for a small nightly fee, your pet dog) can enjoy a stay here. You and your sweetheart will be nice and cozy in the bedroom's luxurious king-size bed, while kids will love the comfy full-size futon tucked away in an alcove by the living area. The bathroom, meanwhile, offers gorgeous tile work to admire in the spacious shower/tub combo.

It's easy to spend your entire vacation simply enjoying the quiet of the streets, taking in some sun at the beach, or relaxing on the deck, but don't miss out on other nearby attractions! Dining, shopping, and historical attractions are abundant in the gorgeous architecture of St. Augustine. Meanwhile, more natural beauty is just six miles north at Anastasia State Park, where sandy dunes and gentle waves are ideal for picnicking, surfing, fishing, and more!

Show the people (and dog) that you love a trip to Florida they'll never forget. Place your reservation today!

Location, layout, and cleanliness.
Alicen A. Jun 2019
Great place to stay. Convenient walk to the beach and just a short minute or two drive to several restaurants, etc. quiet area and the house was comfortable and clean. Will stay again.
Linnea G. Jun 2019
Very close to beautiful dog friendly beach.
Morgan K. May 2019
I loved staying here! Would definitely stay here again. The house was a short walk to the beach and the area was quiet, even for memorial day weekend. The bed was so comfortable also. Perfect size for me and a friend. Anne was very accommodating and always responded quickly via text or phone call. Highly recommend!
Thomas H. May 2019
Everything about this house was great, certainly could use a dishwasher, but we managed just fine
Lora S. Mar 2019
We rent this house over and over again- the only down side is there are no extra linens and no dish washer. So we bring paper plates and our own extra blankets etc . Great neighborhood and great beach
Odette A. Mar 2019
Magnolia House was a great place to spend our two weeks in Florida with our dogs. Upon arrival the place was very clean. Management was very helpful with a minor need that we had. The house is literally a few steps to the beautiful beach. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. I'd say this place is more for a sleeps two than 4. Other than the bed the only other sleeping place is a futon.
Emil S. Feb 2019
Location, cleanliness, overall functionality.
Gerald B. Jan 2019
Quiet, friendly (pets too), clean and well-provisioned for visitors. Toaster needs replacement. Washer/dryer would have made a 5-star.

We had a nice stay...!!!
Close to beach...
Mary Chris G. Dec 2018
Great proximity to the beach and awesome star-gazing on the deck.
Judith B. Nov 2018
Magnolia House is only a few steps from the beach walkway, although it does not have any beach view. The apartment was clean, had modern appliances, fast enough Internet, and a very comfortable king bed. I really appreciated the outdoor hose downstairs to wash the sand off my feet and my dog's feet after long walks on the beach! Those are the essentials for me! Oddly, there was only one bath towel, a few hand towels, one roll of toilet paper.
Pamela M. Oct 2018
Great home for our quick get away. So clean and had everything we needed. Thank you!
Connie M. Oct 2018
loved the beach there is was empty...
Kathy B. Oct 2018
Magnolia House is very clean, simple (which I like) yet has all that you need. It's just a boardwalk away from the beach. Quiet neighborhood too. Thanks for a great getaway!
Martha M. Aug 2018
The home was well furnished and very clean.
Cynthia C. Aug 2018
Nestled just a block from the ocean this cozy house is amazing. The view from the deck is glorious, and the amenities inside means it feels just like home. The kitchen is well equipped, you could even make a souffle, if you wanted. The bed is super plush and comfy, and there is plenty of space to stretch out. There's even an outdoor shower for when you get back from spending the day on the beach! Side note, when traveling to the beach, watch out for wildlife!
Kara H. Jul 2018
Overall the house was fine. A washer/dryer and dishwasher would have been nice. There was dog hair that we cleaned up upon arriving under the end tables, as well as sand in the dining area around the rug edges. The bed was comfortable and the deck was nice (no view though). There is not a dishwasher. The place was cute and cozy and all we needed for a short week.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see there were some disappointments with this home. The dog hair and sand are a housekeeping issue that have been addressed. No dishwasher is listed as an amenity, but a dishpan and drainer are provided. Thanks!
Kelly S. Jul 2018
Everything was set up super nicely, had no problems getting in or checking out. The place was spotless and relaxing the beach is literally right there! This was my first ever visit to st Augustine and I will def be coming back to stay here. The house was perfect!
Rebecca E. Jul 2018
We loved that we could walk to the beach within a few minutes and that we could see the gopher tourtises! There were turtle nests on the beach and we found some sea glass. The cottage was quaint and clean. We would return if we ever visit the area again.
Lauren J. Jul 2018
Only one block from a mostly deserted stretch of beach. Absolutely great location! Only one real bedroom, but the futon worked for my niece just fine. Can't beat this place.
Latisha C. Jun 2018
We loved staying in this house. It's cute and super close to the beach.
Thomas Erich R. May 2018
THE HOUSE COULD USE SOME UPDATES, BUT THE LOCATION TO THE BEACH AND TOWN IS WONDERFUL. AND BEING PET FRIENDLY IS MAJOR BONUS FOR US! THE HOUSE WAS CLEAN!
Cierra S. Apr 2018
We had such a relaxing time at magnolia house. We love the neighborhood, very quiet and peaceful. Very short walk to the beach ,you can see the ocean from the deck. Plenty of parking and plenty of room inside. It is perfect for My husband and I and also our senior dog. The ONLY thing I wish was different, there is no washer and dryer. That would be a great convenience for future visits. We can't wait to return !
Dene M. Apr 2018
Just a short walk to the beach and only minutes from downtown St. Augustine. Comfortable and spacious home for a small family. Would definitely visit again.

Thank you
Jasen D. Mar 2018
Quiet neighborhood at night plenty of noisy kids playing during the day a good time for the whole family very short walk to the beach.
Ed A. Feb 2018
My wife and I stayed in Magnolia House for a week in February 2018. The weather was great and the Magnolia House was a good match for the two of us and our Golden Retriever. The beach is a short walk (about 800 feet) away over a boardwalk through the dunes. The house was clean and roomy for two people. The kitchen was well equipted and everything worked. The area is quiet and near restaurants (drive, not walk). The ocean can be seen over the trees from the deck but not the beach.
Catherine (Kay) S. Feb 2018
Overall a very pleasant experience, furnishings need to be updated.
Charlotte C. Feb 2018
We rented this house to be close to the beach where our daughter was getting married. The outside of the house pictures just doesn't do the house justice! It was perfect for my husband and I. Plenty of room for us to stay and also room for our daughter and her bridal party to get ready for the ceremony.
The down time away from the wedding was great as the beach was 1/2 block away and could be seen from the deck outside!
We were able to feed everyone meals with the wonderfully stocked kitchen available.
Would stay again in a second!
Charlotte C. Feb 2018
Everything was great
Sandra S. Jan 2018
Our visit was very nice, we are planning to go back during summer if possible. Area is close to downtown and attractions were close to our stay. Special thanks to Kathy for all her help our first night :)
Thomas Erich R. Dec 2017
We loved this house, and the area! It was our first time to visit St. Augustine Fla. and we will be back for sure!! House was clean and a short walk to the beach! I loved that it was pet friendly, big bonus for us! We look forward to returning soon!!
Claire B. Dec 2017
The house was a cozy cottage near the beach - the deck was amazing to tan on during the afternoons. Near the city but far removed so it felt quiet and serene. Highly recommend this property and area for a brief getaway.
Meghann P. Oct 2017
A baluster on the deck was broken, had to use a chair to keep our dogs from going through it. The yard was awful, full of stickers and my dog was injured. The surrounding yards didn’t seem to have this problem. The furniture was old and ripped in some places. The linens were in poor condition and uncomfortable. The comforter was very itchy. The bathroom fan needs replaced. Also, there was no dishwasher or garbage disposal in the kitchen. Overall we were very disappointed.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest felt disappointed with their stay. Maintenance will take care of the broken rail and inspect the bathroom fan right away. New towels and linens are in place, and we will soon be getting a new comforter. There is a small rip on the back of the love seat, but the owner will not be replacing any furnishings at this time. There is only one part of the yard that we can mow since there are several burrows of a protected turtles species located in the backyard. Thank you!
Todd L. Sep 2017
We loved the house, great jacuzzi tub and plenty of nice sunlight in the house. You can hear the waves while outside and sitting on the deck is super peaceful. We would love to return!
Clara W. Aug 2017
The house is conviently located to the beach access path. Beach is not visible from the deck but you can hear the sound of the waves. Nice neighborhood for walking your pets.
Douglas N. Jul 2017
Nice property, great location.
Robert B. Jul 2017
Great place to stay.
Ross S. Jul 2017
The house was beautiful. I wish they would get the trees trimmed behind the home so you can get a view of the beach from the balcony. They need to get a new mattress and take the bed off of wheels. Let's get to the positives you are truly walking distance from the beach you walk down a beach trail over the bridge right to the beach. With you being home it's awesome because the beach is not crowded as it would be if you stayed at a hotel. Totally worth the money over a hotel. They have a water hose at the bottom very convenient because you wash your feet off at the bottom before you head up the stairs. Like ten minutes from all the attractions the location is amazing your in small beautiful beach neighborhood. We actually plan on going back in the future.
Janice S. Jul 2017
There is not a view of the ocean from anywhere on the property or the balcony. I was disappointed in that. The house is very clean and comfortable. A short walk to the beach but the trail that leads to the beach was overgrown with weeds and very narrow.
Manager response:
The view of the ocean is currently blocked by trees. We apologize for any disappointment this caused. The beach path is maintained by the city and will hopefully be trimmed down soon. Thanks!
Mary A. Jun 2017
This home was very clean and inviting. By far the cleanest rental I have used. The kitchen is very well equipped. Near restaurants and grocery. I thought the grounds of all the homes in this area needed attention but maybe that is just Florida in the summer? Our yearly vacations to Florida have always been in the winter months but I would certainly rent this house again.
Jennifer M. May 2017
I really enjoyed Magnolia house. It's in a wonderful location, safe and everything to do is nearby. It was super clean and comfortable. There is also a shower outside which is great for when you're coming back from the beach. My dog was really happy too. I will definitely return and recommend to friends and family.
Elaina B. May 2017
This is a great house, close to the beach, in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Very clean, hardwoods throughout. Had an amazing time and I will certainly rent again.
Baron T. May 2017
Great location for me and my wife. Short walk to the beach. Very cozy.
Jennifer M. Apr 2017
This little house is perfect for a couple's getaway. The house was very clean and stocked with everything you'd need. We enjoyed the wrap around porch, watching the turtles and brown bunnies in the yard! And it's only a short walk to the beach...a great location!
Cynthia L. Apr 2017
We loved the convenience of the location. Easy beach access and perfect distance from downtown St Aug.
Karen S. Apr 2017
Upon opening the door, I could smell smoke which was disappointing since my 2 yr old has asthma. We specifically made sure to book a non-smoking property. We contacted management and they were not able to move us as everything was booked up. Despite the smoke the house was nice and clean. The stairs are steep and there is only a handrail on one side. Easy beach access, nice quiet area, outside shower. It isn't within walking distance to restaurants, but only a short drive by car. It was

Hop, Skip & Jump away from the sandy vast beautiful Butler Beach. Just outside of the hustle & bustle tourist amenities but close enough to indulge when time to step away from being too lazy around the house or beach. Close to the History of St.Augustine, Sites & Food but even closer to days of relaxing on the beach, deck or inside the quite Magnolia House! <3
Lyle G. Mar 2017
Quiet neighborhood. Short walk to nice beach. Close to good variety of eating places.
Craig N. Feb 2017
Very comfortable for my wife and myself. It was just the two of us so we had plenty of room. The walk to the beach was a little long, but there were a couple of nice beaches in St. Augustine Beach. The fishing pier was outstanding. We had a very nice two weeks. THANKS !!
Daniel M. Dec 2016
Beautiful home, super clean and two houses away from the beach. Highly recommend!
Cecil G. Dec 2016
This is the place to go if you want to enjoy the sounds of the ocean, be with the one you love and be close to all that St. Augustine has to offer. A very nice spot. We'd love to book this place again.
David Z. Dec 2016
Couldn't have been happier. Wish it was my own house!
Christopher N. Nov 2016
Loved this little beach house. 2 blocks from the beach and you can hear the wave when sitting on the deck. Neighborhood is safe an secure and easy to get to town and restaurants. Lots of extra sheets/blankets/pillows for guests. Good Job!
