Rivers Edge Review
4/5 stars
We really enjoyed our trip to Rivers Edge. The home was nice, clean and well equipped. It was located in a quiet neighborhood and only a block away from the River. Daily walks on Shore Road were wonderful. Easy drive to local attractions, historic Saint Augustine, and beautiful beaches. Enjoyed the backyard pool with family. The management company was very responsive with any issues or questions we had. If we had any complaint it would be the pool lanai, it is in very rough condition with lots of rips in the screens and it is covered with tree debris and was not cleaned off or maintained by the landscape company.

Comfortable and Relaxing
5/5 stars
River's Edge is a vacation destination in itself. Having St. Augustine nearby is a bonus. The home itself is in a quiet suburban location, just a few blocks from the River Walk. We are here in January, so everything seems quiet. There is a beautiful pool and lanai area, which we did not take advantage of due to the chilly weather. The pool can be heated, so the weather might not be a deterrent for everyone. The home is very clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated. It can comfortably accommodate six people. As there are only two of us and we did not cook here, we barely made use of what is available. The home is well-stocked with everything you need to just relax and enjoy. As to the area, we definitely reccommend visiting Old Town St. Augustine and the Fort. Getting acquainted there can be done on the hop-on, hop-off trolley, which we took full advantage of the first day. in that area, we reccommend the Colonial House Restaurant, although you might want to make reservations. We didn't, but only waitedc 30 minutes for a table. The food is great, service impecable, and ambiance perfect. We returned to Old Town a couple of days later and enjoyed the Colonial Experience Tour. The tour guide was great, informative and entertaining. We also recommend the Aligator Farm, especially for families. After visiting there, we stopped at Amici's Italian Restaurant, on the corner of 312 and A1A. The food was great, the servicer friendly and accommodating, ambiencer casual. A bonus was watching live cam feeds from Old Town, the Fort, and Aligator Farm. We took canolis to go and they are the best we've ever had. On our final day, we had no specific plans, except to explore further south on Anastasia Island. We made a stop at Matanzas National Monument and enjoyed the Nature Walk. The ferry to the fort wasn't running that day, but we still enjoyed the stop. We drove on down and enjoyed being next to the Atlantic shore. We stopped at one beach to enjoy the sight and sound of the waves, then found a restaurant with rooftop seating, allowing us to have lunch while further soaking up the sound and sight of the seashore. The food was exceptional at the Golden Lion - the highlight of our trip. We both enjoyed blackened Mahi Mahi wraps followed by Key LIme pie. What a way to cap off our stay!

Our family had a great time in St.Augustine. The house was perfect for visiting the beach and the historic city. The heated pool was awesome, especially since we visited in January. The nearby trail was perfect for walking the dogs. Neighbors were very friendly. Five stars.

We enjoyed our stay at River’s Edge Retreat, the house had everything we needed and it was so nice to hang out at the pool. We enjoyed cooking out on the gas grill. If I could point out some things…. The ceiling fan in the 2nd bedroom with the queen bed rocked so bad we were afraid to use it. The ceiling fan in the master bedroom makes a bad noise, unless it is on high, then the noise isn’t as bad. The pool liner is tearing up and I’m afraid someone might get hurt.
- Vicky

Vicky, we are so glad to hear you had everything you needed to have a successful vacation with your family! We appreciate you pointing out these things, as we are constantly making corrections and updates to the property. We will address these things. Thank you for staying with us, and we hope to have you all back!

St. Augustine Trip
5/5 stars
Awesome spacious home is in a safe neighborhood, close to so many activities and the beach . Food restaurants are very close. The pool at the home is very nice and inviting. 10 minutes way from the downtown and the beach area . We had an absolute fun week staying at this property with plenty of room for our family. I would give this home rental an excellent rating and will return in the upcoming year.
