The lower level has a Queen bedroom w/rear deck seating area, Twin bunk bedroom, and Den/Gameroom featuring a sofa pullout, large screen tv, game table, Kitchenette, foosball and board games. Wake up to sunrise everyday over the ocean with your cup of coffee enjoying the ocean breezes! The downstairs den is a perfect spot for the kids to hang out and watch a movie or play a game of foosball. The house comes fully stocked with kitchen supplies so that you can cook "at home," along with soft bath and beach towels, and crisp bed linens.

We enjoyed the layout of the house with our extended family. Each of the three individual families had their own living space. We were unlucky with the weather, but we could see the Atlantic ocean from inside the house and on the large porch. We had a great stay!!

Large House with Nice Views
5/5 stars
Large house with plenty of room for our family of 6 adults, one infant and 2 dachshunds. We had everything we needed and great balconies to enjoy. It was disappointing to discover there wasn't any beach access due to the large rocks. Of course we knew a large hurricane swept through the area only a few weeks before our arrival.
- Vicky

Thank you for staying with us, Vicky! We are glad to hear you loved the house. The path for the closest beach access is rocky (not due to the storm), but if you prefer not to access the beach that way, there is also a public boardwalk beach access a short drive away. We hope to host you again in the future!

Sunshine Daydream
5/5 stars
My family and I just returned from a week at Sunshine Daydream in St. Augustine. Not only was the location top notch but the house itself was perfect. We were there to celebrate my 75th birthday with three of my sons and their families. Four of the children are under 7. It was a perfectly laid out retreat with plenty of room for all with many private spots for recharging. Furnished in a comfortable beach style and well equipped we LOVED it and are contemplating a same time next year reunion.
- Debra

Debra, We are so glad that Sunshine Daydream was the perfect place to celebrate your birthday! We love that we get to help families and friends make memories together. We hope to host you and your family again.

5/5 stars
Our family had a great vacation at Sunshine Daydream. This home is very spacious, so there is room to spread out. There is also room to hang out together to talk or play board games. (There is a great variety of games at the house.) The kitchen is fully equipped for families to prepare meals and enjoy time eating together. The views of the beach are amazing. It is a quick walk to the beach for a fun time enjoying the beautiful ocean. Highly recommend this beautiful home.
