A Peace of Paradise
Large enough to host a family reunion, luxurious enough to satisfy even the most demanding vacationer, Peace of Paradise lives up to its name. This recently renovated oceanfront home boasts a sparkling in-ground pool with deck, 2 living rooms, myriad decks with outstanding views, and a full bathroom for each of its 5 bedrooms.
The location alone qualifies the house as idyllic. A private boardwalk takes you from your back door to the pristine beach in seconds. The only thing separating Peace of Paradise from the beach are the dunes. Well, that and the in-ground swimming pool that runs the width of the house. Surrounded by a dazzling deck populated with numerous lounge chairs, the pool rivals that of a private club–and it’s all yours! It’s surrounded by a baby gate, which will provide parents peace of mind.
When you’re not sunning yourself on the poolside deck, surfing in the ocean, or searching for shells on the beach–you can relax on the expansive 2nd-story balcony. Gaze out at the Atlantic, looking for dolphins and whales beyond the surf. Or maybe you’ll want to keep cool beneath one of the ceiling fans of the 1st-floor porch. The rhythmic murmur of the waves is guaranteed to relax you.
Inside the Rental Home
The interior of Peace of Paradise was designed with relaxation top of mind. The house has not 1 but 2 spacious living rooms, one on each floor. This, along with the wealth of bedrooms (1 with a king-size bed, 3 with queen-size beds, and a 5th with bunk beds), makes the home well suited for multiple families or couples vacationing together: There’s plenty of space for everyone to do his or her own thing as well as for the whole group to gather together.
Both living rooms are decorated in soft hues, with a wealth of wonderfully comfortable seating. And with a TV and board games in each, boredom won’t be an issue! Go ahead, sprawl out on a sofa and treat yourself to a well-deserved midday nap. One of the sofas in the upper-level living room opens into a bed for 2, should you have unexpected overnight guests.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are as roomy, comfortable, and lovingly furnished as the rest of the house. The master suite is particularly fabulous. Not only does it open onto its own private balcony, but it also has in its en-suite bath a Jacuzzi next to a one-way mirror, so that you can look out at the ocean as you soak without anyone else being able to see in.
The upper-level dining table easily seats 6; there’s room for another 4 at the adjacent breakfast bar. Not to mention a table and chairs on the deck for alfresco dining. A cozy breakfast nook on the 1st floor is just the spot for an intimate meal for 2.
Whether you plan to cook three meals a day or simply mix milkshakes and margaritas in the blender, you’ll love the open, fully equipped kitchen. Stainless-steel appliances, cookware and prep tools galore, plenty of tableware. The kitchen has it all. That includes generous storage space; you can stock up on groceries at the beginning of your stay and not have to waste additional vacation time at the supermarket!
By the way, Peace of Paradise has a 2nd Jacuzzi — talk about luxurious! Among its many other amenities are 2 conveniently located powder rooms, and a washer and dryer. And let’s not forget the deck and sitting room by the front of the house. Admire the sunrise over the ocean while sitting on the back balcony, then take in the sunset from the front deck. So much beauty to soak up, and you’re perfectly positioned to savor it all!
Peace of Paradise is also conveniently near to restaurants, shops, golf, historic St. Augustine, Marineland. Though given how much there is to see and do right here, you could happily while away your entire vacation at this beachfront paradise!
