Beautiful cottage in the wood
The cottage was stunning! We had a lovely time and would highly recommend to anyone who wants a quite getaway.
Peaceful area and not far from everything.
Very clean house and neighborhood. It was nice and peaceful at night and not far from anything. It was in a good central location for what we had planned for our stay. The owner was very quick to respond if we had any questions and made our stay very comfortable.
Beautiful cottage in quiet setting
I could not be happier with the Pine Breeze ccottage! It was clean, beautifully decorated, and a perfect size for my stay. I found the bed very comfortable, and the living room has a nice large screen tv and comfy sofa. The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator and microwave, which were perfectly adequate for my needs. (No cooktop or stove, but there is an electric skillet available and a grill outdoors.) I loved the location, surrounded by pine trees in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. The owner Jana was warm & welcoming, and even provided fresh-baked cookies! The next time I'm in the St. Augustine area, I will definitely try to stay here again!
Renter beware the water here really smells BAD
I'm 68 and have been married for 43 and my wife and I were raised with "If you don't have something nice to say don't say anything". But we need to make an exception in this case. There is NOTHING on her VRBO listing that says there is well water that smells like Sulphur. When we arrived Jana greeted us this was the first thing she told us and it's the first thing listed on her "Welcome to the cottage" rules.
This water smells so bad we didn't want to wash dishes, take showers or wash our hands and faces. Sure it may not be harmful but we had to live in that environment for a week.
If the fact that the water smelled like Sulphur had been listed this on the VRBO listing we would NOT have booked our trip there. I plan on filing a complaint with VRBO about this.
I could list other bad things as well as some nice things.
But not knowing that the water was like this makes it hard to say anything nice.

I am truly sorry that this guest found our water so offensive. The occasional Sulphur smell is an inconvenience at times, but not a significant issue since what comes into the Cottage has been filtered and purified. I bring it up when guests arrive so they're aware that plenty of bottled water is provided if they'd rather not drink what comes out of the faucets. I sincerely wish that the severity, for them, of this issue had been brought up immediately. They did not HAVE to stay here for a week. If it had been discussed with me, I would have happily accommodated them by arranging a refund so they could find another, more acceptable, place to stay. Such a negative review is absolutely shocking because every aspect and detail of the Cottage is of utmost importance and my goal of providing an exceptional, welcoming experience for all of my guests is paramount to me.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay!! Both Jana and Garth couldn't have been nicer. If we are ever in the area we will definitely stay again. I highly recommend this property!
Very pleasant cottage
Loved this property. The owner made you feel as if you were family. Great location, very private. Truly enjoyed our visit
