We enjoyed a relaxing weekend celebrating a bride to be! The house was gorgeous and worked perfectly for our small get-together. The house was located near many stores, restaurants, and downtown St. Augustine. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Chiquita Sun house
4/5 stars
The house was clean and all prepared for our stay and has plenty of space! The kitchen was well equipped and both kitchen and bathrooms had all the needed essentials to get started. Unfortunately the pool heating wasn’t working and the pool quite cold. But it was resolved quickly. The interior of the house feels a bit dated and worn out - especially the bed in the master bedroom.
- Mirja

Mirja, thank you for your review and stay. We appreciated your patience while we repaired the pool heater. We are happy that we were able to fix it, but sorry that it impacted your stay. We are glad that the home had everything you needed to enjoy your stay! It was a pleasure hosting you and we would love to have you back!

Nice Stay
4/5 stars
We enjoyed our stay at the Chiquita Sun House. Much to our surprise, it was roomier than we expected. The bunks are full size and the perfect set up for the kids in our group ages 9-14. There are three bedrooms upstairs too! So it’s really a 4 bedroom place. They also had a lot of unexpected amenities that made our stay even more special - pool towels, beach wagon, cooler, and portable beach chairs are all things we did not need to pack or go out and buy. The kitchen was well stocked and the grill was in great working order! I agree with some of the previous reviews that there are a few things that could be upgraded - furniture definitely showed signs of wear and and tear. Next time I would look into renting from itrip direct - VRBO charged exorbitant fees (approximately $470 added to our bill) for little to no value. All of our interactions were with itrip and they were top notch! All in all a good stay though!

Perfect spot
5/5 stars
Loved this spot! Excellent location. Close to the beach and great restaurants. Wonderful if you don't want to leave the house too! Kids loved the pool and the bunk room. Comfortable beds and couches to lounge. Nicely equipped kitchen if you don't want to eat out all the time. Quiet area for walks too!

Decent Place- Lots of little things that are broken or don’t work properly.
4/5 stars
First let me say that itrip vacations was a phenomenal company and was always just a text away when I needed them. I stayed in this home 2 times in the span of two weeks. The first time there was a pull out couch that didn’t pull out, none of the remotes had batteries and the dining room chairs were all about to fall apart. Itrip vacations sent a handyman out to rectify the problems in a timely manner. A few days later i was grilling and the entire bottom of the grill fell out almost right on my feet. A new grill was purchased and was there for our second trip. A few other wonky things about this place. The outlets and all worn and dont hold any prongs in place allowing anything charging to possibly fall right out. We had a few problems with hot water to certain fixtures. The kitchen sink fixture is broken and it is difficult to change from spray mode to regular. Overall this was a good experience except it seems the owner of this place is not interested in upkeep. That worked out for us as we had teenagers, so I didn’t have to worry about them breaking things as most of the fixtures and appliances get so much wear and are in need of some repair when we arrived. Bring a small tool kit as you may have to tighten legs on a chair or tighten up a door knob that is barely hanging on. If you need space near the beach and aren’t worried about having everything work perfectly this may be your space. For the price i dont think it is worth it. For future trips i will most likely us itrip vacations but will not stay at this unit.

Chiquita House
2/5 stars
Large home which was great for large groups. However, overall home was overpriced for poor condition of home. Overall, home needed a lot of work- home needed to be painted, cabinets chipped and wouldn't close, yard & pool area very dishelved, TV in den area never worked & bedroom didn't have remotes for tv. Furniture needed to be replaced in den- covers over couches that were very dirty & didn't fit and were always coming off. Basically, home looked like it was in its prime 15 years ago & hasn't been touched since. Location was far from beach with no sidewalk or crosswalk to beach over busy street. Overall too expensive for condition of home. Would not refer or stay again unfortunately.

Pros: The heated pool was great and the layout of the house was nice. The house is located on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood. Cons: The inside couches were covered in ill-fitting slipcovers that needed to be cleaned. The outside couch had a moldy pillow on it and on the outside patio table, there was a moldy candle. The king-size mattress was very soft and lumpy, so uncomfortable that we ended up leaving a day early. The silverware was very worn and some of it dirty in the drawer. There was a broken light on the dining light fixture. The second bathroom also had a broken light, and mold all around the caulk surrounding the tub. The kitchen sink also had mold on the caulk. The shrubs around the pool needed to be cut back and there were moldy areas around the pool deck, and the ladder area had cracked cement. Overall: Our kids liked the pool but we were disappointed in the furniture and the interior of the house versus what was shown in the photos.

Keely, We are disappointed to hear you stay at Chiquita Sun was less than 5 stars. We have made a list of your complaints have started right away address them. We wish you well!

This location was very family friendly! The outdoor pool area was perfect for our stay. The pool area is shaded in the afternoon which was ideal after a day at the beach. There was plenty of sleeping space and a great open floor plan!

Beautiful split level house with pool!!
5/5 stars
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this beautiful beach house just minutes away from the beach. It is beautifully decorated and was very clean. There was plenty of space for a large family with a cozy feel to it. The pool was perfect to come home to after a day at the beach. You could walk to the beach if pulling a wagon, but I would suggest the 2-3 minute drive up the road where you can park your car for $10 a day right on the beach! We would definitely stay again!
- Stephanie

Stephanie, Thanks so much for staying with us and for your review and suggestion! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed this great house and the location near the beach :-)
