St. Augustine cottage description

Come and relax at our enchanting 1930’s totally renovated cottage by the sea. We've decorated it with charming vintage finds. Immerse yourself in the world of Old Florida, the way it used to be. Grab your coffee and watch the dolphins play while the pelicans fly overhead. Walk along our quiet beach to the inlet where you can see the old St Augustine lighthouse on the other side and other historical sites.

Many activities are available, parasailing, fishing, kayaking, boating. Why not sail on the pirate ship “Black Raven' If you sail on Wednesday it docks at Aunt Kate’s restaurant for a delicious seafood dinner. We also love walking to our favorite local restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. (We’ll leave you a list). You can walk to the post office and our beautiful pier (you can fish from it) too.

Feel like visiting the fourteenth century? A short ride over the bridge and you are in ancient St. Augustine. The oldest settlement and fort in the USA


Explore the historical sites and enjoy the family owned restaurants. Take a tour. Either a trolley or a romantic horse and carriage ride.

Fall asleep to the sound of the surf and the swaying palm trees.

Enjoy!
Carolyn and Jim Covert

                              Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
                              We rented a cottage in the area and fell in love with it. I had always dreamed of having a place where we could grab our coffees and walk the beach. The charming quaint cottages and the quietness of the area are so relaxing. There is a beautiful nature walk across the street. Having the ancient city of St Augustine so close by makes the location perfect. Interesting restaurants and beautiful architecture just make it a dream location. We love and use the cottage when it is not rented.
