St. Augustine, FL is the oldest city in America and one of the most popular of Florida's tourist destinations. Visit Historic St. Augustine with guided trolley tours, walking tours and ghost tours. Parasailing, jet ski and boat rental, and fishing trips are all a few minutes away. Excellent cuisine can be had at several restaurants within 10 minutes of the house. End your day watching dolphins, pelicans, and sail boats from Dolphin Retreat's back porch, or take a sunset sailing cruise from the harbor to the ocean.
