Just a minute's walk from the beach, Coastal Karma is a beautiful European-style house just right for your St. Augustine vacation. We've got a hot tub, pool, balcony, fenced grassy yard, and all the space your group needs for a great Florida getaway! This home was just completely upgraded in March 2013.<br/><br/>Coastal Karma has 5 bedrooms all with HDTVs, plus a bonus room that sleeps one more. We have 3½ baths, a big covered patio with some peek-a-boo views of the ocean from the kitchen and dining area. This is a luxurious but very comfortable place to stay, and we invite you to make it your home base when you come to the northeastern Florida coast!<br/><br/>Bring the kids' Big Wheels and sidewalk chalk, because there's plenty of room to play in our backyard and on the patio. Our aboveground pool offers a splash of pure refreshment on a balmy Florida day, while the hot tub is a great way to limber up first thing in the morning and relax tired muscles late at night! Add the ocean into the mix, and you have nonstop water fun for the whole group.<br/><br/>You'll want to stay outdoors long into the evening, so pick up some burgers or fresh seafood at the market and enjoy a dinner on the back patio at least once while you're here. <br/><br/>When it's time to go indoors, you'll be delighted by the breeziness of silent ceiling fans supplementing the central air-conditioning and the comfortable décor welcoming you to a place of relaxation. The main living and dining areas are on the second floor, but the ground floor contains 3 bedrooms and the bonus room with a futon sofa and TV.<br/><br/>One of the 1st-floor bedrooms includes an en-suite bath with shower and tub option. This room contains a queen-sized bed, soft carpeting, HDTV, and a door right out to the patio. Of the other 2 bedrooms on this floor, one other also contains a queen-sized bed, plus a HDTV, carpeting, and direct patio access. The other offers 2 twin beds in an airy, carpeted room and HDTV. A full bathroom is convenient to both of these bedrooms, with dual vanities and a bathtub/shower combination.<br/><br/>Travel upstairs and you find yourself in our luxurious living room, complete with a fireplace and elegant hearth, HDTV, Blue Ray/DVD player, leather sofa, travertine floor, and access to the balcony with lovely views of the countryside. Decorative pillars frame this room, which leads directly into the formal dining room with chandelier and wet bar.<br/><br/>The kitchen is breathtaking, with state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, tile floors, marble countertops, a breakfast bar as well as an informal breakfast table in a sunny nook. We've stocked the cupboards with all the equipment you need to prepare and serve a feast for the whole group (plus friends!), and you'll find all the time-savers you rely on as well: microwave, coffeemaker, ice and water in the fridge door, and of course the dishwasher!<br/><br/>But your favorite part of Coastal Karma may just be the master suite, with its heavenly king-sized bed, HDTV, French doors leading out to the patio (with glimpses of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean!), and en-suite bath with dual vanities, a garden Jacuzzi, walk-in shower, travertine floor and even a chandelier. Ah, what bliss!<br/><br/>You'll also find another bonus room on this floor, with 2 futon sleepers and a big HDTV. (Teens and tweens, this room is calling your name!) A half-bath and a big laundry room complete the 2nd-story layout -- and you'll find all of the linens and towels you need for every bed and bath waiting for you here, fresh and soft. Pack light this trip!<br/><br/>When you stroll out onto the covered second-floor balcony, with its smooth brick floor and comfortable lounge chairs, you can survey the neighborhood, gaze down at the backyard and pool, and count the stars at midnight. Sorry, a grill is not provided at this home. However, one can be rented at your expense. Call us for further information.
Additional amenities include: beach, fishing, washer / dryer.
Lugenia S.'s review of Coastal Karma, Luxury 5 bedrooms, above g
Left on 08/21/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | Lugenia S.
The vacation home is beautiful but lacks personality and warmth. It looks and feels like a house that is just being rented to cover the rent until it's sold. The house needs a new, standard set of pots and pans, beverage pitcher, blender,etc...basics. Replace chpped dinner plates. Air Hockey table needs to be replaced or refurbished. The upstairs hallway bathroom toilet, outdoor hot tub, and indoor spa tub were not adequately cleaned and the futons were filthy. We could tell the cleaning service had been there because her hair was on the linens, sinks, etc. The property mgmt sent maintenence guy next day to replace bulbs and fix the bathroom spa tub that was inoperable. They also sent a service in 2 days to clean/inspect the futons. He cleaned as best he could but recommended replacement. Both guys were friendly & professoinal. Lovely home that needs the proper attention to make it a place vacationer would be glad to return to or recommend to others. Beautiful beach and serene and relaxing environment.

Everything was nice, big, clean, I just wish there were enough towels, toilet paper, and paper towels. We had to buy paper products on our second day and had to wash towels everynight.
NICE PLACE FOR FAMILY GROUPS

We had a wonderfull time at St. Augustine, regarding the house although it has a great location and it is well mantained, we felt it turned out to be quite pricy in comparison to what you expect to receive, perhaps there are small things to improve, like the placing of the jacuzzi and the maintainance of it, tv sets for each room, a cleaner backyard. We were a family party of 12 and in overal this is a good place to stay at.

I have to say that this was a great experience. Victor was very helpful in responding to all our needs and questions.
