St. Augustine cottage description

Ideally located adjacent to The St. Augustine Lighthouse, and just steps away from The Fishing Pier, Salt Run State Park with walking or biking to sandy beaches plus a boat and kayak rental on the lagoon. The last Light Keeper built this cottage and it awaits your arrival, tucked away on an ancient Coquina dune in one of the last native hammocks, this lovely cottage sleeps four comfortably, with two bedrooms, and a large Jack and Jill bath. A roll-away bed is provided for extra guests. A full kitchen completely equipped and stocked with everything you will need for simple meal preparations. We also provide you with a pass to visit the Lighthouse and Museum as our guests while you visit, and you may use it as often as you like while you stay.

'The charm and peace of this place, has an 'old Forida' charm that cannot be found in condo settings'...Dwayne Lynch - Asheville, NC

The Garden is Private,complete with a natural fiber hammock, perfect for reading, but also a favorite for bird watching. The rookery and the Alligator farm are just across the way and the bird life is outstanding. Take a walk over the bridge to Historic Downtown St. Augustine to see the sights-about a half mile stroll, and say hello the the Dolphins for me.

Extended cable TV, Air-Conditioning and high-speed wireless internet all insure there is nothing to miss, but much to discover at this authentic, Historic Light keepers Cottage.

We'll leave the 'lighthouse' on for you!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Peter and I discovered this cottage nestled in the woods in 2002. We learned that it was built by the last Lightkeeper ever stationed at the St Augustine Lighthouse. We loved the end of the road privacy and living in the shadow of the Lighthouse seems unbelievably romatic. Absolutely convinced that if peace on earth could be found we had found it. We bought it up and moved across the country to restore her and settle down to quiet small town living. We still enjoy many months of the year in St Augustine but also spend part of the year in California - earning a living. So until we retire once and for all we are happy to share our special cottage with visitors from all walks of life and from all over the world. The experience has been wonderful and we hope to share it with you! Peace on earth!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              We really enjoy living in the shadow of the Lighthouse. The list of activities at the Lighthouse and Museum is endless. Everything from Dark of the Moon tours to Stanley Steamer gatherings. We are Founding Light Members of the Lighthouse and Museum and our guests at the cottage are provided a free passes to enjoy the Lighthouse and Museum as our guest. We also enjoy and really take advantage of the Anastasia State Park with the Salt Run Lagoon, and the new Amphitheater. Our favorite beach is just a short walk along the Lagoon to the end where the sand dunes lead to the beach. The scenery, and bird life is world class, and the fishing is good too! We also enjoy a a walk to the Ancient City over the Bridge of Lions in the evenings. All in all the living is easy and good in St Augustine.
