Shhh, try not to brag about our charming oceanside getaway! Sea Urchin is a well-kept secret, for where else can you vacation just yards from the beach at a price like this? Newly redecorated, airy and bright, it's a beach escape just for you!

Located in the friendly Surf Crest Village (closely-set but wonderfully private units), Sea Urchin is just a hop, skip, and jump from the sparkling community swimming pool. If you're traveling with little ones, no need to pack up the pool bag every time you want to take a dip -- just step outside with a towel and a smile, and you're ready to cannonball into the water! Or perhaps you'd like to get in a few laps before breakfast? Staying at Sea Urchin is like having your own private pool just steps from your door!

Our modern, thoroughly convenient, cozy house makes you feel right at home from the moment you arrive. The open, airy living room offers a family-sized couch, wonderfully decadent easy chair, polished hardwood floors and a large TV and DVD player. Light floods in from large windows and sliding glass doors, which lead to our private, spacious deck. Go ahead, linger with drinks or a good book, enjoying the fresh sea breezes and year-round sunshine! You're at Sea Urchin now, far from the dull everyday routine!

Sea Urchin is ideal for a family, two couples, or any group of 4. The primary bedroom contains a cozy queen bed with his-and-her nightstands (so that one of you can sleep obliviously while the other finishes that murder mystery or decodes just one more Sudoku!). Bathed in pastel blue tones, this is a room just perfect for long lazy lie-ins!

The second bedroom boasts the same restful, calm color scheme. Twin beds give both people their own space, while the high-set window with adjustable shade lets you decide whether you want to be woken by natural sunlight or sleep the morning away! (It's the perfect room for afternoon naps, too, when you want a quiet, peaceful atmosphere.)

One of the true joys of Sea Urchin is the kitchen. Beautifully updated with wood cabinetry and every modern appliance, it's so fun to use! Fully stocked with all the gadgets, dishes, and utensils you could ask for, it makes dining in a pleasure. Will you be fishing on this vacation, or just visiting the local seafood stand for fresh-caught delicacies? Either way, at Sea Urchin you can prepare the catch of the day any way you like, then let the dishwasher do the work while you settle in to enjoy your favorite movie or retire to the deck to watch the sunset! Our full-sized refrigerator and generous cabinet space means that you need to make one stop at the supermarket during this vacation -- load up and enjoy frosted drinks, home-cooked meals, and tasty snacks for the rest of the trip!

Our dining table seats the whole family, and doubles as a computer stand (did we mention that Sea Urchin is equipped with free wireless Internet?) and game center. This is the place to lay out the map of Disney World and plan your attack, let the teenagers catch up with their social media, conduct a rousing game of dominoes, or spread out crayons and paper for the little ones to wind down with some coloring. Everything is easy, right at hand, and relaxed at our oceanside retreat!

Which brings us to the ocean itself! You'll walk to the beach along the community's convenient boardwalk, enjoying the natural dunes before reaching the soft, sugary sands. Prepare to own the beach as you never have before -- this lovely stretch of seaside is uncrowded, with plenty of room to fly kites, play bocce ball, collect shells along the waterfront at low tide, and witness a spectacular sunrise every single day. The waves are challenging enough to delight the surfers in your party, and you can rent all manner of watercraft to enjoy the ocean up close!

For day trips, St. Augustine is just 8 minutes away, with fine dining, world-class shopping, and fascinating historical sites. Orlando is less than a 2-hour drive.

Clean, short walk to beach, a great value if you are willing to tolerate a few quality issues.
