Amazing Grace Beach Front House, New Pool, Sleeps 12, HDTV
Description from the manager
Facing the shores of Crescent Beach with its back to the Intracoastal Waterway, Amazing Grace is a huge, luxuriously appointed Mediterranean-style house. Watch the sun rise from the front deck and set from the back deck at our magnificent oceanfront house! And, the house has an elevator and high-speed wifi inside. And as of January 1, 2012, Amazing Grace has a new private heated pool!<br/><br/>Set back from a beautifully landscaped, sloping garden and with a new private pool, Amazing Grace greets you with a formal entry set in tile with a decorative mosaic. You have your choice of stairs or an elevator to transport you to the second floor, where a huge living and family room area awaits, replete with ocean views and ultra-comfortable couches and chairs. Build a fire in the coral fireplace or just enjoy the game on our LCD TV between glimpses of the blue Atlantic out the windows!<br/><br/>Or, if you're eager to get the gang moving, propose a game of billiards! We have a lovely game room, also surrounded by ocean views, with a slightly smaller pool table just waiting for some action. The table swivels to reveal an air hockey table on the other side. There is also a full sized ping pong table in the garage!<br/><br/>Our kitchen and dining areas may just inspire you to prepare a feast . . . but even if nothing more time-consuming than takeout is on the menu, you'll enjoy serving it from our gracious wood-and-tile kitchen. It's got full-sized appliances, a walk-in pantry, and all the time-saving gadgets you could desire, plus a full complement of cookware, dishes, and utensils. <br/><br/>Dine in the sun-washed room with tile floors and a formal table for 8. Spacious and restful, this is a room to linger in long after the food is gone and the wine poured. Let the outside light illuminate the room as long as possible, then turn on the soft modern chandelier and enjoy a long discussion or break out the board games. <br/><br/>The master bedroom is upstairs, an enormous room with a ultra-comfortable king-sized bed, HD TV, and a pair of easy chairs facing the beautiful picture windows. The views are amazing at any time of day, and one morning you may just have to watch the sunrise from the comfort of your bed!<br/><br/>An en-suite master bathroom adjoins the bedroom, with a Jacuzzi tub as well as a shower. The windows are opaque for privacy, but light still shines through, bathing the area in a golden haze. What a relaxing way to wake up or wind down!<br/><br/>There are 3 more bedrooms on the first floor, plus another bathroom and two sleeper sofas to accommodate up to 4 extra guests in addition to the 8 for whom there are beds. The first bedroom contains a king bed and HDTV, plus plenty of bureau and closet space. The 2nd bedroom also boasts a king bed (who wants to share anything less?!), while the 3rd contains two twins with nice large windows and lots of floor space. A 2nd full bathroom is convenient to the bedrooms on this floor, and a washer and dryer are tucked away for loads of towels and swimsuits!<br/><br/>But the inside of Amazing Grace is just the beginning of its charms. A large front deck looks directly out at the beach, while a back deck offers great views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Our two-car garage keeps your vehicles out of the punishing sun, and our private railed walkway leads you over the dunes and onto the beach. There is even an outside shower.<br/><br/>And there more fun begins! Crescent Beach is a lovely stretch of coastline, with many treasures for beachcombers, soft sands for digging and playing, and rolling waves. Try a bit of fishing in the surf, boogie-board the waves, watch the sunrise, and sunbathe on the sand. Just a few minutes in the opposite direction is the Intracoastal Waterway, with a maze of inlets and fantastic hiking and nature trails. Perfect for watercrafts.<br/><br/>The Crescent Beach neighborhood is a beloved part of Florida, with many locals. With old St. Augustine just up the coast, there is always plenty to see and do. So come stay at Amazing Grace soon, for a gala family event or a private getaway.
Additional amenities include: biking, boating, beach, fishing, washer / dryer.

We had a wonderful time in the beach house and say that we would definately return. There were a few minor problems upon our arrival. I won't go into detail of what those were but will say that once we stopped and talked to the staff they did take care of these issues immediately. The house was very nice and in a great location. We were out far enough to be away, but close enough to drive right in and have a great time when we wanted to. I would definately recommend this to any of my friends and family. Made it possible to provide a great vacation for our family!!! Can not wait to return!!! We actually hope to return to this area some day as residents. I have visited St. Augustine for many many years and my husband and I got married on Crescent Beach 6 years ago. Absolutely love it!!! Thanks for a great time.

Everything was great, the only 2 minor things first the house was extremely clean as long as you didn't look under the furniture, wasn't to bad but obvious hadn't been cleaned under for a while. In fact we stayed here because we could bring our pet and there was no way you could tell this was a pet friendly place it was that clean! Second you couldn't use the outside private shower because it was full of beach stuff, didn't really enjoy washing off after the beach with a garden hose. Other than these two minor things it was one of the best beach vacation places we have stayed at and we go to a beach every year.

My family and I really enjoyed our vacation in St. Augustine, FL and really loved the amazing Grace Beach Front House. The house is located on a beautiful beach and only minutes away from Old St. Augustine - which is a must see. The house had way more than we imagined, from all the space to all the cooking utensils. The only draw back was that there was no gas in the grill and we thought it was rather small for a house that sleeps 12. Also, I would recommend posting the garbage pick up days as we luckly were venturing out one day and noticed our neighbors had their trash cans out, but we did miss the second pick up and left a few garbage bags when we checked out.

Great location, and spacious accommodations well suited for a family vacation. An additional full bathroom on the ground level would have be helpful - it was somewhat awkward to have to walk through one of the bedrooms to access the bathroom. On the first day that we checked in we noticed that the microwave oven did not have a door handle, it appeared to have been ripped off. Contacted both housekeeping and maintenance to report the issue. I asked how housekeeping was able to clean the inside of the microwave when you could not even open it. On the following Monday, maintenance replaced the microwave.

Very nice place, but a lot of extra charges that was not refundable. First place that I have stayed with a non-refundable security deposit. Also non-refundable cleaning fees and then have you vacuum. We had a very nice stay though.

Amazing Grace was a delightful place to stay with wonderful views of the sunrises over the atlantic Ocean and the sunsets over the Intercoastal waterway. It is ideal for 2 couples as guests of the folks living in the main floor master suite. It has a fourth bedroom suited for a couple of children as it is connected to one of the King bedrooms on the lower level. One drawback is everyone on the lower level has to share one full bathroom. The house is well furnished with the only things we found missing - a kettle and a teapot. We found the bar-be-que to be very functional for outdoor cooking and eating on the rear deck.

We searched online for weeks from Canada to find the perfect winter escape for our family. Which includes our older much beloved dogs. When we arrived at "Amazing Grace" we were thrilled.Views on both sides. Ocean on one side,Intracoastal on the other!

We wanted to create a very special Spring Break for our 15 year old son who is recovering from Hodgkin's lymphoma. He and his friends had the "best Spring Break ever!", largley due to the home, property, location and support of Rental Pro's. We appreciate the sensitivity the owner and our RP agent had when we requested that our vacation not be interrupted for the installation of a kitchen island. We will be back! You may want to remind your cleaning crew to check the outside shower when cleaning as we found an old rusty beach umbrella and some broken beach toys when we went to use it. It also was not clean and we had to scrub it out. Glad to help, but based on the spotless nature of teh property upon check in, just wanted to let you know. Thank you for a wonderful week and for your support of our son and family in this tough time. Chuck, Beth, Sarah and Josh Nichols

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at amazing Grace and will strongly consider staying there again. We had a minor technology issue with the TV the day we checked in which was resolved very quickly by the management. We greatly appreciated the prompt and friendly assistance!

Lovely home on a beautiful ocean front view. Hated the layout with 3 bedrooms downstairs and only 1 bath to share. Elevator in the house was a nice surprise. I would only recommned this home to a large family because of the bathroom sitiuation. It would be nice to have a pool at this home alos or a hot tub. We had a l ovely stay for a last minute decision.
