We were planning a family gathering to celebrate a milestone birthday and needed a place that would accept dogs, since all of the dogsitters would be traveling together. St. Augustine is the birthday girl's favorite place to visit and she loves the beach, so this location couldn't have been more perfect. 10 minutes (at most) to downtown St. Augustine and right on the beach. Dogs are allowed on St. Augustine beach, too, so we didn't have to leave them in the hotel room. We brought a canopy so there would be shade for everyone, but you can also rent cabana loungers from the nice guys in the gazebo between the pool and the beach. There is a grocery store nearby so we were able to buy waters and sodas for our cooler. I stayed in a pet-friendly room and was pleasantly surprised at how clean the room was. Including the bathroom. They have freshly laundered pet blankets in the rooms, too, for you to drape on the bed so the comforter doesn't get soiled. Our dog isn't allowed on the furniture but there was plenty of space in the room for her bed, and for her food and water bowls. Lastly, I have to mention the staff at the hotel. They are incredible. Truly. I have stayed in too many hotels to count but have never encountered such a friendly and accommodating group of people. They made me feel welcome and relaxed the minute I stepped up to the check-in desk. Absolutely no anxiety. Thank you Holiday Isle for such a wonderful getaway.
