Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom suite, in a small beachfront resort with only 3 suites and 2 cottages

Monarch Suite is situated in a quiet, oceanfront retreat on nearly 2 acres of natural, dune property with the pristine beaches of Anastasia Island. A perfect place for the person that enjoys walks through a natural environment, the beach, swimming and all the area has to offer. It is located just south of historic St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. A large suite with kitchenette, HD TV, 50 mbps wireless internet and more. Enjoy beautiful white sand beaches with swimming, surfing, fishing, barbecue in a private, natural setting. We also supply beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, scuba masks for the kids, fishing gear, small cooler, carts to tote down the beach path and much more.

With only 2 cottages and 3 suites on the entire oceanfront property, it feels like your own, private tropical escape. Pelican Cottage, Kemp's Cottage, Hawksbill Suite, Monarch Suite and Ridley Suite are all listed on VRBO and available for rental starting in June 2013. Choose to view all listings below for more information. The extensive renovations included replacing most of the systems, insulation and soundproofing, new windows, doors, bathrooms and kitchens, providing luxurious accommodations to the perfect St. Augustine, beachfront vacation.

The newly landscaped property includes many tall palms, flowering tropical plants and places to relax. When you follow the path to the beach you'll come across many native plants and will get to know the original residents of the land including the gopher tortoise, the wildlife that their burrows support, the monarch butterflies as they migrate, and many species of birds. Lounge in the courtyard, cool off in the pristine waters of Crescent Beach, surf at one of the best surfing beaches in Florida, visit one of the many great restaurants, or cook in your well-equipped kitchen.

If you need something, ask our helpful onsite staff, call or email, we are there to make sure your time at The Silver Sands is second to none.

Silver Sands is a real pearl.

  • 5 of 5

In all the beach trips we've made we've never been treated so well. Everything was thought of to make our stay comfortable. So many amenities. The new mural is spectacular. Thank you so much.

We love this accomadation. It has been improved over the years, but never lost it’s special features. Small, private, perfect beach, comfortable rooms, thoughtful supplies. I can’t think of anything to suggest to improve on what is already there.

It was ok.

  • 1 of 5

It was ok. I was just expecting a view of the beach. Also....I thought I had to leave a day early for emergency. Emailed the manager and no response. Even if I was obligated to pay for the agreement of days, some acknowledgement would have been nice. It turned out ok and we stayed and sent email saying so, still no acknowledgment.

Owner's Response: We were horrified when we saw a 1-start review and we requested this person followup with us so we could better understand what we did wrong that lead to a 1 star review. They have not responded. There was no indication while they were staying with us for 3 nights that anything was amiss. They briefly thought about leaving early due to a family emergency but decided against it hours after they left a message one night. We will partially refund guests for real issues, even if they are beyond our control, but they had no issues. VRBO doesn't accept proof of a false review and typically doesn't remove reviews even when guests request it. Our managers are available and easy to talk to and we rarely have any issues in areas we control. Occasionally, although everything is rather new and replaced before end of service estimates, we have technical issues. I ensure all future guests that they will be much better off discussing any issues with us during their stay. We look forward to making your stay at The Silver Sands a great one! Sincerely, The Silver Sands Family.

The property is beach front and from the suites and cottages, there is a nature path thought the woods, over the ancient dune to the new beach walk over the last dune. Along the path you see wild flowers, wildlife, tortoises and palms.
