This beach home and quiet, peaceful neighborhood is waiting for you. The weather is great and our back deck is relaxing. Why stay up north during the winter or summer. We love 3-month rentals!

Enjoy St. Augustine with friends or family. Reserve both Units A and B during the same month or months! With huge back decks this home will make grilling out and evening meals at the beach enjoyable!

There is a small playground south on A1A and there is a large playground in the historic district. Ice cream shops are everywhere!

Year Purchased: 2018

About the owner: Steve & Brenda Schell. We have been in St. Augustine now for 14 years. Steve is retired Army National Guard. Our love for St. Augustine began while working here before retirement. We began sharing our love for St Augustine Beach by inviting family to town. This duplex will enable us to share St Augustine Beach with you! Currently we have 2 homes but it seems like St Augustine is the main residence. Our other home is in Central Florida where we grew up and our families are still located.

Residents in St. Augustine are fun and enjoyable. The atmosphere is friendly.
Time will slow down. You will not want to leave!

Why this property? We purchased this property to rent out for others to enjoy the beach and history of the oldest town in St. Augustine. The home has been gutted and remodeled with a 30 day rental in mind. It is a duplex and currently Unit A is available to rent. We have provided everything you will need to enjoy a month of fun. A large deck in the back yard has even been added for relaxation and evening visits. Local artwork is being added. The futon couch/bed is for you to invite guests during your stay. The newly landscaped yard with fence, sod and gravel allows you freedom with your pet out back. The walk to the beach is short. Return home for lunch or visit the local eateries without the need to drive.

Sitting and walking on the beach in the morning or evening and spending the day with our grand kids in the sand are our favorite things to do. The walks downtown are also enjoyable. Every time we go downtown we find a new street to enjoy or a new food that we have not tried. We love our time in St Augustine and so will you!

In addition to the Beach, the Historic District is close and you can participate in seasonal events.
January...Nights of Lights
March...St Patrick Day parade
April...Seafood Festival
July...Fireworks over The Matanzas

Guestbook comments from the host:

Our rental and stay was simply amazing.

Sea Turtle along with Brenda and Steve Schell surpassed all of our expectations. The unit was pet friendly and fully equipped to meet all of our needs. The deck was perfect for socializing and naps! Sea Turtle was meticulously clean and the Schells made it very clear that they were available if we had any issues. The neighborhood was very clean and quiet while being very friendly. Proximity to the beach is awesome with many food venues within a simple easy walk. We loved our time at Sea Turtle and highly recommend it to all.

Awesome place to stay!
Very clean, recently updated and well equipped. The owners have thought of everything. Short walk to the beach…no need to concern yourselves with finding a parking spot! Also, short walking distance to shops, restaurants and St. John’s Pier. Short driving distance to Historic St. Augustine, St. Augustine Amphitheater, St. Augustine Lighthouse, Marineland, Alligator Farm and so many other attractions and restaurants. Quick responsive owners. Great communication. I enjoyed my stay and highly recommend this rental to anyone and everyone!!

Relaxing & warm Vacation

This was a Very relaxing get away from the hassle of the Christmas this year, the Sea Turtle #A was fabulous, clean and had everything we needed. We had a great time it did get a little chilly at times but nice and warm inside and nice cool walks on the beach. Had a few nice places to eat if you're interested in going out also...we will be back if all is well!!

Elaine. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. December, 2022 was colder than most years. There were still those beautiful days for walking around downtown and on the beach. St. Augustine is so relaxing this time of year and we are glad you had a good time. We find new places to eat every month so next time I will leave you a list of what we enjoy! Have a great year!
