Gorgeous views of the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway are yours from every room in Atlantic Angel, our beachfront Mediterranean-style house in St. Augustine. If you love architectural detail, luxurious furnishings, and brand new pool (as of February 2013).<br/><br/>Atlantic Angel is a beautifully designed, custom built, lavishly decorated house in which each room is spectacular from floor to ceiling. Among the features here are an imported tile mural in the entryway; Saltillo, Spanish, and Mexican tile accents; skylights; stained glass; quarried coral floors; a dry aquarium; and coffered ceilings. You'll want to spend a whole day... just going through Atlantic Angel inch by inch to discover its architectural treasures!<br/><br/>Best of all is the location of Atlantic Palace, right on the shores of St. Augustine Beach with a private walkway leading you down to the crystalline sands. The sun rises majestically over the horizon here, pelicans float by, and the sea is ever-changing. And as if all that weren't enough, the Intracoastal Waterway is in the opposite direction, with beautiful sunsets and great wildlife opportunities too!<br/><br/>The main living and dining area is upstairs, where you enter an enormous great room overlooking the ocean. Two walls are almost entirely windows, punctuated by a big adobe gas fireplace with a hearth seat. A comfortable sectional sofa faces the ocean & fireplace, while an LCD TV and DVD player stand ready to keep the group entertained. <br/><br/>On two sides of the great room are sunrooms, perfect for reading, talking, or dreaming a few hours away! The furnishings in here are wonderfully cushioned and comfy, inviting you to linger, gazing out at the beach. <br/><br/>The open plan of this area connects the living room with the dining area and the kitchen, both of which are perfect for your large group. Tthe dining table overlooks the ocean, while the kitchen is a gourmand's dream, with professional-quality stainless-steel appliances including 2 glass-fronted refrigerators, a freezer, a Thermidor commercial gas cooktop with griddle and grill, convection oven, and warming oven. Indian granite countertops, a walk-in pantry, and a sunny breakfast nook complete the amazing features of the kitchen, tempting even the most reluctant cook to "play house"!<br/><br/>In addition to the grand room, Atlantic Angel also sports a rec room with pool table and sofa, and a family room with TV. Of course, most of the time you will find yourselves gathering on the breezy oceanfront patio or the long, covered balcony with Intracoastal Waterway views. Bougainvillea blooms in our garden, a Spanish fountain merrily trickles, and all is lush, peaceful, and bright with tropical beauty!<br/><br/>The master suite is one of the crown jewels of Atlantic Angel. Featuring a king-sized bed, the master bedroom includes an LCD TV and DVD player, beamed ceiling, and access to the oceanfront deck. The master bath is stunning, with marblework, a garden Jacuzzi tub, shower, steam room, dual vanities, separate powder area, dry aquarium, and stained-glass transom. You'll feel as though you're at an exclusive spa every time you set foot in this room!<br/><br/>Two roomy guest bedrooms sleep an additional 8 people. One contains 2 queen-sized beds and a small TV, while the other offers a twin with a trundle, plus a double Murphy bed. Both lead out to the 30-foot-long balcony overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, and each has its own designer bathroom. No matter where you sleep at Atlantic Angel, your surroundings will wow you!<br/><br/>The ground floor features a brand new 4th bedroom that can sleep 4. This newly furnished room features 2 queen beds. There is also a brand new full bathroom on the ground floor. This room is perfect for 2 families traveling together or for a group of kids.<br/><br/>Best of all, a brand new pool has been added as of January, 2013. A truly exceptional vacation venue with unforgettable vistas and uniquely beautiful décor, reserve Atlantic Angel today.

We loved the house and had a great time. The only thing that I wasn't aware of was that there was a room downstairs attached to the garage. I assumed everything was on one level because this was not disclosed. The other item was there were only 2 garbage cans and 1 lid. There should be more than 2 especially for a house that sleeps 12. Other than that, we loved everything about the house and would rent it again in a heart beat.

I rented this beach house as a get away for the whole family. Everyone had different schedules but they came as they were able and left when they needed. We had a tropical storm blow in on our second day. It was very exciting to see the weather change. The house was large and well laid out so that we still were able to have a great time... playing pool, grilling steaks and lobsters and still able to see the fantastic view from the grill in the kitchen. The weather improved. We enjoyed the beach and shopped in old St. Augustine. The house was so comfortable and relaxing! I would highly recommend this home to anyone!

Agree with comments from previous guest. A few minor repairs would make the house perfect. Used the front patio a lot and a working fountain would have made it even more inviting. Enjoyed all the outdoor areas and beach access is perfect. Lots of windows provide beautiful view from inside and plenty room for everyone to enjoy all the amenities. Convenient to everything and a visit to historical St. Augustine a must. Many memories made for all of our family. Would definitely recommend house and rent again if in the area.
Beautiful weather. Pictures of this rental are exactly what is offered. Plenty of room for our large family. Our son said that it was "the best family vacation ever"!!! We relaxed, tanned, played bocce ball on the beach, rented bikes. Enjoyed it all. We will rent here again.
