A garage is shared by the two units and it contains a bathroom, beach toys, chairs, and a beach umbrella. A keypad is used to open and close the garage door. There is also an outdoor shower to the left of the front door. We enjoyed our stay and found everything clean and well maintained. It was comfortable and it really felt like home! This beach has been one of my favorites for years. I love Anastasia Island and I love St. Augustine. They are both family friendly and quiet, compared to other places I've visited. This beach house would be great for family reunions and get-togethers. The setting is ideal and you can enjoy all the amenities offered to guests of St. Francis Inn!Disclosure: I was provided with lodging in order to complete this review.

St. Augustine: Our Beach House
Our Beach House, an oceanside retreat that's steps from beautiful white sandy beaches. The house is a duplex with an entrance to "A" side in the front and "B" side in the back. It is easy to get to and there is plenty of parking for one or two cars. We stayed on "A" side and a wooden walkway led to the front door. Entering the beach house, I immediately noticed a large stone fireplace and a spacious living room, perfect for relaxing with my family. A television and DVD player were there to entertain us on rainy afternoons. Just in case we left our DVD's at home, there were plenty of cable stations! There was also a CD player so we would play our favorite music! A large sleeper sofa and two chairs offered plenty of of seating options.
