Whether you’re a fan of mile after glorious mile of ocean sands or a bit of a history enthusiast eager to explore a piece of Florida’s colonial past, St. Augustine Beach will likely prove appealing. Located on the historic Anastasia Island - a 14-mile (23 kilometres) barrier isle off the mainland’s eastern coast - it is home to plenty of seagoing activities to keep people of all ages entertained. From fishing to kayaking to swimming to sedate boardwalks - the island, and its popular state park have the lot. Then there’s the 16th-century Spanish settlement, evidence of which can be seen in such sites as Fort Matanzas and the Coquina Quarries. Throw in the shops and restaurants inevitably associated with a popular coastal resort, and you’ll find plenty to entertain yourself and others. Naturally, this also means there are plenty of Vrbo vacation rentals in St. Augustine Beach, from which to choose when looking for a place to stay here. Read on for some of the best.
This newly remodelled condo would make a good base for families looking to base themselves close to a range of possible activities. As well as the nearby beach, the condo has access to its own Jacuzzi as well as two communal heated pools - perfect for a little family fun. The complex is also home to racquetball and tennis courts as well - should you prefer to burn off a little energy without having to take a dip. What’s more, the condo - which can sleep four to six people between its two bedrooms - is home to a range of amenities. These include high-speed wi-fi, cable TV, laundry facilities and a fully equipped kitchen. And speaking of cooking, guests also have access to covered grill areas - for whipping up some tasty hot treats in the open air.
