Lindas Beach: Vacation Rental Manager in Florida

Lindas  Beach Vacation Rentals Owner

Lindas Beach

My name is Linda Bayles. I have been a Realtor in the Jacksonville/St Augustine area ranking in the Top 1% of Agents since 1998. In 2005 I walked into a 1926 beach house on St Augustine Beach and knew I had found my calling. I wanted to 'Create' a vacation space for Families. Large extended families. A place were Cousins, Grandmothers, Uncles and Aunts can comfortably come together to reconnect and enjoy each other away from the demands of the outside world. I come from a large family of 5 children as does my husband, Brad. Some of my fondest memories are when we all got together to just 'hang out' for 3 or 4 days. The little ones always come up with a 'play'. The adults always congregate in the Kitchen passing down the 'Family Recipes' to the next generation and playing Games. We are a big Game playing family. Specifically Rummikub. We start them at 5 and My Mother is still going at 95. If you have never played, you must. I make sure there is one in each house. Once you are hooked and have one of your own, I hope you will think of your St Augustine stay every time you play.
So I bought that 1926 Craftsman, gutted it and turned it into The Chautauqua which sleeps 21. It has been a rewarding success. In 2011, my Father expanded the tradition and bought 4 homes on one Oceanfront compound on 9th Street. We could not believe our luck and spent the next year remodeling them into The Seaside Cottages. We started renting them in June of 2012. The Best part is not only the homes but the BEACH. There are only 18 streets on the “Best Beach”. No cars. No Catwalk. The ocean right at your door. Wide Beach to make great Sand Castles. Great Restaurants within walking distance. Amazing.
And then I discovered the charm of Downtown St Augustine. At night it is like strolling in an old European City. So in 2016 I decide to moved Downtown and renovated 4 more Downtown Vacation Rentals. Ranging from 1 to 4 Bedrooms, all walking distance of St George Street (the Center of Historic Downtown and all the Restaurants, Sights and Music) and only 2 blocks from each other. Great for Downtown Weddings with the Bride taking one house and the Groom the other.
My Goal is to provide the best vacation spot possible. I hope you will stay with us and create memories you will cherish for a lifetime. Feel free to call me any time day or night at 904.465.3852.
Always at your service,
Linda Bayles

PS: I am also a Realtor so if you fall in love the the area as much as I did I would love to help. I work primarily as a Buyers Agent. There are not many of us out there. Most Realtors work as neutral Transaction Agents. You can Google 'Buyers Agent' to get an overview of the difference. I think it is big. Just ask yourself the question, Would I want the other sides Attorney to represent you? No. That's it in a nut shell but the amazing thing is, unlike Attorneys, it does not cost you anything to have your OWN Realtor representing YOUR interest. We are all paid by the Seller. So .... I would love to help if you are thinking about buying or selling in the area. Just call and I will send photos of what's available. Once here I will give you a tour of the area and take you "shopping". We can see about 4 per hour and you have me as long as it takes. Looking forward to it!
