Property description

Latest update:in the Smithsonian Magazine for April 2013 St. Augustine is on the list of America 's 20 best small towns as #3. It is really great for vacations.

This is more than a clean, comfy & cozy vacation rental. Serenity will overtake you as soon as you walk in this beautifully restored historic coquina city home. The calming effect of the cool Florida colors with the high ceilings will put you in the mood for the best getaway experience ever! This 3 bedroom home has had a complete remodel including electrical, plumbing, HVAC, plus fresh interior plaster throughout. And the outstanding kitchen is breathtaking state of the art. It was highlighted by Better Homes & Gardens “Kitchen & Bath Ideas” magazine in the Sept./Oct. 2009 issue.
This home features two bedrooms downstairs. The downstairs bath has a separate shower and a claw foot tub. There is a glass block window that lets in plenty of natural light. You can soak in the claw foot tub with light streaming in the window in complete privacy. Upstairs you’ll find the master suite. The master suite has a queen bed, and twin day bed plus a nice sunny window seat. The bath has a jetted tub with a folding shower door, a dressing area with lots of storage. The upstairs has its own HVAC unit so the temp can be easily controlled.
For fun, relax on the front porch and watch the horse drawn carriages clop by. Travel to the back and enjoy the lush Palm trees in the fenced private patio oasis in the grill party area. Jump on the (2) bikes and discover the historic St. Augustine downtown (founded in 1565). Take part in endless museums, shopping, restaurants, art galleries and music.
Here are a few more fun adventures:
…Farmers market-(Wed morningon the island & Sat. morning at the amphitheater) Purchase fresh local produce, breads & fish, jewlery plus live music.
…Drive on the beach (nearby over the bridge of Lions) & unload your chairs, beach towels, boogie boards & coolers for fun in the sun. (Provided)
…Visit Yard Birds (our favorite breakfast place) or Mango-Mango on the island
…See St. Augustine in style riding in your own horse drawn carriage or be a part of the educational trolley tour.
…First Friday art walk-the first Friday of each month enjoy art with music and refreshments
…Outstanding Outlet Mall with hundreds of stores right off Hwy 95 & Hwy 16
…Famous Alligator Farm-get up close & personal…but not too close! Also, the historic fort is fantastic.

Don’t let this gem slip away. Book your St. Augustine memories now!!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We presently live in the Atlanta area and are not yet retired.

Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
This home was purchased as a second home and a friend told us about the VRBO web site when we were looking for a way to list the house for vacation rental. St. Augustine is such a fun city and the house sat empty quite a bit of the time so it made good sense to rent it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will enjoy this beautiful house that has everything you need to cook or entertain. It is nice to walk or bike ride to the downtown and the many historic places and to shop on St. George Street. The drive or bike ride to the beach is aprox. 3.5 miles. The high ceilings give a calm to the house that is great for vacations. The city is so much fun to explore and also for learning about its history.
