St. Augustine Vacation Rentals
Spend your Florida vacation in St. Augustine, the nations oldest continuously occupied city. Founded in 1565 by Pedro Menendez de Aviles, who was searching for the fabled Fountain of Youth, and believed he found here on the shores of St. Augustine. The city today has grown, though they’ve done a great job of preserving it’s history. We maintain a wide variety of St. Augustine vacation rentals, so you too can enjoy our beautiful city.
The St. Augustine Historic District provides everything the adventurer in you could want from a vacation. Start where it all began, the Fountain of Youth historical park. Spend some time in the Spanish fort, Castillo de San Marcos, view St. Augustine from above at the Lighthouse, or take a paranormal walking tour through centuries old graveyards. Some other don’t miss attractions include Ripleys Believe it or Not!, the Alligator Farm, the Lightner Museum, and Flagler College Tour. For those seeking entertainment, St. Augustine delivers. From the Pirates among us, to the street performers and artists of all types. Discover new music in some local pubs, or catch a nationally touring band at the St Augustine Amphitheater. See our dining guide for suggested places to eat during your stay.
The Beaches of the St. Augustine area will be the highlight of your Florida vacation. Book yourself a beach front rental, and spend the days soaking up the Florida sun along natural sand dunes made of pure white sugar sands. Watch the wild life – rabbits, gopher turtles, even sea turtles – right from your ocean front rental home balcony. The Atlantic Ocean provides endless opportunities. Walk the shoreline for hours, collecting shells or just day dreaming. Try your hand at some surfing, maybe some beach fishing, fly a kite, or just let the waves crash over, as you relax in your beach chair. We have ocean front rentals in the areas of Crescent Beach, Vilano Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach, Summer Haven, and Butler Beach.
St. Augustine is located in a unique north east Florida location. It’s an easy day-trip to most major north Florida attractions. See Disney, Universal Studios, or any other Orlando area attractions within 2 hours. Get to Busch Gardens or a major concert in Tampa in 3 hours. You can visit Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center, the Ocala National Forest, or visit the state capital and be back in your St. Augustine vacation rental before the sun sets.
North Florida is a sports haven. Spend your days on the water fishing, either offshore salt water, or hit the rivers for some freshwater fishing. Try surfing, grab a wake board, or a nice game of volleyball on the beach. Catch some pro sports with the Florida Gators, The Jacksonville Jaguars, or the Orlando Magic. Try your luck at Sawgrass, the same course pro golfers play during the PGA tour!
For those looking to shop, spend a bit of time in the antique shops of the St. Augustine Historic District. Hit the thrift shops on the chance of finding exactly what you didn’t know you needed. Head out to our outlet malls on the edge of the county, and then take in some of the states best flea markets in Daytona and Jacksonville.
We have St. Augustine vacation rentals in close proximity to all these attractions.
