Beachfront Sanctuary, a Genuine Florida Gem. Ocean Views & Wraparound Deck!

Welcome to Old Florida Cottage at Summer Haven! A slice of Old Florida awaits you in your cozy beach front cottage. Enjoy the laid back vibes of your secluded front yard beach. Relax in the peaceful beauty of your back yard estuary teeming with mangrove wetlands and diverse wildlife.

Summer Haven is a historic beachfront community nestled between the Atlantic and the Summer Haven River. It is treasured as one of the rare places where "Florida is as Florida was". This Florida gem is a true beach sanctuary for you and your family.

"Old Florida Cottage" is truly an ode to "Old Florida".  Your adventure begins with your half mile drive down a sand road ACCESSIBLE BY 4 x 4 VEHICLES ONLY.  As  the screen door closes behind you, you will find yourself embraced by an eclectic and evolved feel where you can sit and talk the night away.  The cottage boasts charming furnishings meant to transport you to a quieter time when good conversation and good food were the mainstay of a memorable vacation.   A wood burning fireplace serves to accentuate the family friendly style while warming up those chilly winter evenings.

We also realize our guests enjoy the convenience of those amenities we come to expect as mandatory to a full-fledged family vacation. You have access to a tv in the great room, as well as in each of three bedrooms. And, of course, wifi is available as well. Indoor dining for 10 is well served by a fully functioning gourmet kitchen; whereas outdoor dining offers both ocean and intracoastal views. A gas grill offers ease of dining outside; while a large wraparound deck enables an unobstructed 360 degree view.

The Bunks are perfectly suited for children, but adults will find them too small!

When you think of Summer Haven, think unspoiled beaches where sunsets are a rite of passage; a blissfully undisturbed environment where ample opportunities for eco friendly adventures abound. Outdoor activities such as swimming, surfing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, biking, parasailing, and fishing take center stage in this nature lover's paradise. Simply stated, if you can think of it, you can do it!

Part of the appeal of this lifestyle is that it goes back to a slower more gracious time. Old Florida means the places where it feels the least touristy; where the lapping of the waves is the first thing you hear in the morning and the last thing you hear at night. You will find yourself standing in front of large swaths of wide open beach with hardly another soul in sight. You will realize you have taken the time to notice the beauty of Pelicans gracefully gliding over the waves while Dolphins are frolicking nearby. In the evenings, you catch yourself watching the moon rise over the Atlantic Ocean while the lights from shrimp boats twinkle on the horizon.

To borrow a phrase: "Summer Haven is a place where all of this happens. It's a giant step back in time when life was simpler. "Summer" and "Haven": Peace. Sleep. Food. Memories. Sanctuary. Refuge.

***It is the perfect place to unplug, relax and unwind. However, should you wish for something a little more, here are some suggestions:

-swim with the dolphins at Marineland just down the road
-visit the historic sites of St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city
-zipline over the historic Alligator Farm
-enjoy shopping, fine dining and night life of nearby St. Augustine

NOT to forget Disney World and Universal Studios a couple hours to the South.

NOTE: 4X4 VEHICLES ONLY!
