Enjoy relaxing by the salt-chlorinated pool or take a Jon boat off the dock with davit, and navigate the local waterways. With panoramic views of the Intracoastal Matanzas River and Downtown St. Augustine, this home provides the ultimate backdrop for Florida living and is within walking distance of local shops and restaurants, and only a short bike ride to the beach. Don’t miss out on this one of a kind waterfront oasis.
This beautiful home offers a great floor plan and amazing waterway views, plus a pool & dock, and it’s only minutes to Historic Downtown. Enjoy nature while on the dock or pool deck. You will notice many birds along the grassy area of the marsh, and manatee and dolphin swimming along the canal. The intracoastal is the perfect place to fish, kayak, canoe, and paddle-board. Bring your boats and other watercraft, this St Augustine rental has a boat dock at this Intracoastal vacation home. This is the perfect St Augustine home with boat dock for all your water activities from fishing to skiing. Enjoy the most amazing sunsets!
This old charm modern house offers enormous windows, high ceilings, beautiful furnishings, and all the extra touches that make your vacation more enjoyable and comfortable. Indoors from the deck is the living room, with a high ceiling, a comfortable area that seats everybody, and long windows looking out toward the sea. During the day it’s the perfect indoor/outdoor room, with so much light that it’s almost like a second deck. At night, it’s cozy and welcoming, with spotlighting and a cozy atmosphere.
The kitchen and breakfast nook are just beyond the dining area. Our kitchen is completely stocked with all the dishes, cookware, and utensils your big group needs to cook and serve just about anything, up to and including Thanksgiving dinner! All you add is groceries; we’ve got all the major and minor appliances and time-savers that will get you out of the kitchen and back on the beach in no time flat. And you’ll enjoy working in our kitchen, with a central island and big windows over the counter.
You’ll love the spacious sleeping quarters. We have 3 bedrooms and 4 full baths, so there’s room for everyone. The master bedroom offers a king-sized bed in a large beautiful room with great views. Two more offer a queen & 2 twin-sized beds. And there’s even a sofa sleeper. We provide all the linens, pillows, blankets, and towel sets you need for every bed and bath. Our washer and dryer are at your disposal to keep everything clean and fresh, so pack light.
There is also plenty to keep the group occupied at Driftaway after a busy day on the water! We have several TVs, all with cable. No more fights about what to watch – there are enough screens to go around here!
The house is comfortable, roomy, and fully appointed with everything you need, but we think the best part about Driftaway is its location. The Matanzas River Intracoastal offers calmer waters and plenty of wildlife, plus hiking and biking trails.
Driftaway is located in the Davis Shores neighborhood of St. Augustine. Close-by attractions include the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, the Lighthouse, the Bridge of Lions, the St. Augustine Amphitheater, and much more within walking distance. Crossing over the Bridge of Lions takes you into the historic City, where you’ll find the Castillo de San Marcos, The Fountain of Youth, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, and much more.
