Charming beach home with a private, heated pool & spa - short walk to beach
With privacy in a tropical setting, this amazing vacation home has something for everyone to love! A newly enhanced boardwalk creates a short stroll to the sparkling coastline. Make lasting memories while enjoying the private pool and spa, outdoor dining area, spacious enclosed backyard, full tropical bar, and fire pit! The front porch swing and furnished patios are just waiting for you to enjoy. Catch those famous Florida sunsets from the spacious, screened lanai, which is pool-level, giving you plenty of options for enjoying the days or evenings indoors and out. With an open-concept layout, there is plenty of room for the whole family to spread out, as well as seating to enjoy those family meals. Bonuses are the inviting east-facing covered front porch for morning coffee and the west-facing deck off the main bedroom for sunset, pool, and backyard views.

This home is in a prime location with easy access to the beach as well as the Matanzas River only a short walk away. An easy walk to multiple dining options also awaits. St. Augustine also offers local breweries, entertainment options, and a multitude of restaurants and shops. A new direct beach-access area and pedestrian-friendly boardwalk have been built only 0.1 miles away. There's no parking lot, so guests must walk or bike.

House and back yard were phenomenal
TJ F.Jul 2022
Our family stayed here for a week and had a great time. The house was very well equipped, the pool area was set up really well for a nice relaxing trip, and the beach was super close. Our toddler loved the koi pond. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Christine S.Apr 2022
We really enjoyed how close this home was to the beach. However the house itself was underwhelming...the spa was broken and didn't work and the route to get out to the pool was inconvenient...lots of steps. We rented the home because it had a heated spa in March...with it not working....I would have chosen a different home to rent.
Thank you for sharing feedback about your experience, Christine! We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the desired amenities not being available during your stay. Rest assured that we will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. Thanks for staying with us and we hope for another opportunity to impress you with a much more enjoyable stay!

We loved all the places to hang out with this beautiful home: in the lanai, around the fire pit, the living room and sitting by the pool. The kitchen is well stocked too. Definitely returning.
CARMEN D.Nov 2021
Communication was really good, The House was very clean with so much space a large group of people can gather comfortable the linings smelled fresh and clean, the kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook a super meal which I did but the best part is the awesome back yard it has everything you need to spend a great time with family and friends I recommend this house to anyone that want to relax and enjoy a beautiful outdoor,,,,,
Ernesto R.Sep 2021
Very well equipped, clean, and good taste in assortments decorations, the outside is really great, the bar and grill, the pool and jacuzzi makes really a great place to stay, the plants and palm threes are a big plus.
Richard S.Jul 2021
Had a wonderful time with our family. Almost Heaven is truly a beautiful beach house.The pool area is truly beautiful, and enjoyed the screen in Sun room. We felt right are home in this beautiful house. Only issue was the Master shower floor, it was not as clean as it should have been, hopefully that issue can be addressed
Overall it was a beautiful home, very well kept. Our family truly enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for your generous review, Richard. We are very pleased to hear that you felt right at home in our home! We greatly appreciate your valuable feedback regarding the shower floor and will be sure to pass these comments along to our local manager for review. We hope to host you again soon!
Brad H.Jul 2021
We loved our relaxing stay at Almost heaven! The backyard was wonderful, very private setting and quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, fire pit, back screened in porch, and tiki bar. The beach was easy to get to and not very crowded. We enjoyed our stay and would love to come back!
julie m.Jul 2021
Beautiful home and especially loved the outdoor oasis. Would stay here with my family again.
Debra G.Jul 2021
It was an absolute amazing home! There was everything you needed to feel at home! The property was a paradise. From being so close to the beautiful beach, to having the pool an hot tub it was everything you could ask for. Not to mention being so close to amazing restaurants! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to get away❤️ Thank you Gail and David!
Amy S.Jun 2021
We had a wonderful experience on our family vacation! The house was awesome and the kids had a great time! Thank you Will be coming back for sure!
Christine M.May 2021
We loved this home for a beach stay for our family of 5. We used the baby gates and high chair plus one additional gate we purchased to block off the kitchen from our 1 year old twins and 4 year old. We reorganized some of the decor on the low tables to protect it from the babes, and hopefully returned everything to where is started. Otherwise the home was plenty safe for crawling and cruising babies. The backyard was fantastic and we grilled 2 nights and had a bonfire one night for s’mores. Proximity to the beach, grocery stores and restaurants was perfect. It was wonderful to have access to the private pool during a pandemic. Thank you for sharing this home!
Gale J R.Apr 2021
This house was so amazing. Had everything you need. Beautiful backyard and pool. Good location to everything. Crescent Beach so close you could walk to it. It’s name is perfect for this house Almost Heaven. Will book again.
Gail Nielsen D.Apr 2021
The house has everything and the outside space is perfect!
Peggy L.Nov 2020
This was our 3 or 4th time to come to Almost Heaven there in St. Augustine. Even though our weather wasn't the best, we still relaxed and enjoyed our quiet time! Beautiful home, we will be back! The Lesters
Tiffany B.Oct 2020
We absolutely loved this home! Very Clean and has lots of space for our family. It’s close to everywhere we want d to visit. We spent our mornings at the beach and relaxed by the pool in the evenings.
Phyllis S.Oct 2020
We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary, love the house, the view from the bedroom patio, the hot tub was awesome every night. We had a great time, enjoyed touring the city and the haunted tour at night.
Amanda B.Oct 2020
The house was comfortable, and well furnished with every day needs. The back yard was a relaxing Oasis. My 7 year old daughter picked some lemons off of the tree and her grandma helped her make home made lemonade! It was the best home made lemonade ever! I had a concern about how to work the hot tub, but the company reached out to me right away, and we got it going! I would definitely stay here again!
Don L.Sep 2020
Perfect in every way! Clean, beautifully decorated, host very helpful.
Hillary N.Sep 2020
Almost Heaven is truly a slice of paradise! We loved the proximity to the beach (and being able to drive on the beach!). This home had everything we could need and is gorgeous inside and out. We cooked outside a few times, enjoyed time in the pool, watched the sunrise from the front porch, absolutely loved getting to come home to such a relaxing space after spending time out and about! This home is the perfect find—we couldn’t have asked for a better stay!
Amelia W.Aug 2020
Good location, nice & roomy house for all 6 of us. LOVED the private pool.
Eric Z.Jul 2020
Tropical backyard and pool were perfect after a day at the beach. Loved the tiki bar and outdoor kitchen. Very nice and clean home with all necessary amenities available that made our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
WAYNE R.Jul 2020
The pool and backyard were so relaxing!
Krystina M.Jun 2020
Very clean! Great location!
Luis P.Jun 2020
The house is nice and has everything you need. The living space is on a second floor and there is no elevator so keep that in mind if anyone in your travel party is unable to walk upstairs. The backyard has a pool and hot tub which are connected but you have to pay extra and request in advance to enable the hot water feature (the pool is big enough to hang out in and about seven feet deep at its deepest). There is also a grill in an outdoor open kitchen (there is a sink but it didn’t drain well), table for six with an umbrella and a fire pit but there wasn’t any wood to burn so if you want to use it you need to take some wood with you. It is well located to access the beach, you can walk but we found it better to drive as it’s about a mile away and you have to cross a busy highway. Everything worked and most of the house was clean enough (the return for the AC was quite dirty and we found a plastic bag and a used band aid in the pool which we mentioned to the management company, but the person on the phone didn’t even apologize and neither did the person that cleans the pool when we mentioned the bag/band aid to him). Overall a good place to rent.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Luis. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you bringing these items to our attention. We will work with both our housekeeping and maintenance teams to make improvements, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Peggy L.May 2020
We love the privacy and quiet neighborhood. The home and amenities are great. You can walk to the beach easy. This was our second stay and hopefully not our last!
Melanie C.Apr 2020
Beautifully decorated, great host!
Tom W.Feb 2020
Very complete with equipment and furnishings to meet one’s every need. Located in Crescent Beach area in an eclectic neighborhood good for dog walking and close to the inter coastal and some very good local-favorite restaurants as well as the beach. Stairs for access could be an issue for some folks.
Donka R.Aug 2019
Lovely home equipped with everything in the kitchen and home to make your beach vacation perfect. Lush, tropical landscaping with pool, fire pit and outdoor seating. Clean, modern, new and comfortable. Great for a family of five. We also loved being close to Crescent Beach and driving into the beach in our 4x4.
Allison F.Aug 2019
Perfect set up for my family and loves crescent beach.
