Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: My husband and I moved from Philadelphia and bought a home in downtown St Augustine in 2005. we love living in America's oldest city, surrounded by history. We also love the beach so we bought Island Charm in 2006 so we can use it much of the year and our family has a place to stay when they visit. We hope you will enjoy staying at Island Charm as much as we do, and you will LOVE the beach.

Why Coquina Gables:
We didn't want to be on the beach block, and this house is the next best thing. Our neighborhood is mostly year round residents, so it is friendly and quiet, yet small restaurants are all around within a few block walk, This is a terrific walking town with beautiful BIG live oak trees everywhere, including our front lawn

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is a real home, not just a vacation rental. You will feel the difference as soon as you enter. There are books on the bookshelves, and good pots and pans, flatware, linens, lot's of towels, etc. We know you will be comfortable
