Just a few blocks off the beach, the Buccaneer Bungalow vacation rental is ideal for a family of 4-6 or anyone looking to book a remote working vacation rental.

For the outdoor lover, kayaking and the beach are equally close to the Bungalow. If you’re into history, ten minutes south is Fort Matanzas National Monument and fifteen minutes north is the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, and then of course historic St Augustine.

Details About the Buccaneer Bungalow Vacation Rental

Here’s the full scoop on our St Augustine vacation rental. We love it and love sharing it with people. Please read through the neighborhood information and house rules before making a booking request.

Vacation Rental Location – Quiet Butler Beach

The Buccaneer Bungalow is ideally located between the white sands of Butler Beach & the Intracoastal Waterway. This St Augustine vacation rental is set in a quiet neighborhood w/ lots of green space, the Bungalow is perfect for having a beach vacation with family/friends. A big fully fenced backyard & outdoor shower allow you to relax and enjoy your time in St Augustine. Subtle touches give hint to St Augustine’s historic and piratey past. Great for a weekend, vacay or work escape (2 desks, great wifi). New floors in every room!

Our neighborhood is quiet with lots of dog-walkers. Being so close to the beach, it’s an eight minute walk to the Sea Oats entrance of Butler Beach (10-12 minutes if you’re gingerly). If you want to kayak or SUP, Butler Park West is a ten minute walk or two minute drive. Two blocks over is Windswept Acres Park with a playground and walking paths. Around the corner on A1A you’ll find Red Frog McToads (fish n’ chips & beer) as well as a Cuban restaurant (opening soon!). There are great delivery options, including Instacart and DoorDash.

The Buccaneer Bungalow is located between highways 312 and 206 off of A1A. If you’re coming from I-95 it’s about a ten minute drive to the house. We do recommend having your own vehicle so you can check out historic downtown Saint Augustine and the many other beaches, but if your goal is just a trip to lay low and enjoy the beach or the Intracoastal, both are walking or biking distance.

Rules for Staying at the Buccaneer Bungalow St Augustine Vacation Rental

We give our guests space but are available when needed. We are local to Saint Augustine, so should there be any needs or concerns, we are able to assist without trouble. We won’t pop by the bungalow unannounced, but we’re around. We want your time at our St Augustine vacation rental to be pleasant and stress-free.

Our Vacation Rental Cancellation Policy

Full refund for cancellations made within 48 hours of booking, if the check-in date is at least 14 days away. 50% refund for cancellations made at least 7 days before check-in. No refunds for cancellations made within 7 days of check-in. This is strict.

“What if there’s a hurricane on the horizon?” Hurricane season in Florida does run from June to November, and while it’s highly unlikely that a named storm will make landfall in Saint Augustine, it could happen. We tell all guests booking during hurricane season that they should be familiar with their credit cards’ travel policies or that they specifically look into travel insurance. Because hurricanes are tracked and come with plenty of warning, booking a Florida vacation during hurricane season is a known risk.
