St. Augustine house description

Experience St. Augustine's rich history next time you're in town by staying at St. George, our 18th-century Spanish Colonial home in the heart of the Old City! Once occupied by the Spanish Crown, this 300-year-old house offers the best of old and new.


This 3-storey house at 224 St. George Street includes a private courtyard, 3 full bedrooms plus a ground-floor single bed to accommodate anyone who has trouble with stairs, a kitchen that combines modern convenience with period touches, and beautiful views of the city! One of only 3 dozen Spanish Colonials still standing from the 1702-1764 era, St. George (also known as the Peredes-Sequi-MacMillan house) is a stunning piece of living history for you to explore.


Enter the house either through the parlor or, in the Spanish way, through the courtyard at the side. This courtyard contains a 6-foot wall composed of crushed coquina shells, a local architectural feature. The iron gate gives you a good view of the street as you sit at the table with drinks or breakfast. The courtyard is paved in bricks, with nice landscaping and a shade umbrella for Florida's balmy weather. Just beyond it is a big grassy yard, perfect for reading and playing. The courtyard is ideal any time of day, but makes an especially wonderful way to enjoy that first cup of coffee in the morning!


If you enter the house from the street, you will find yourself in the parlor, an elegant room with old polished-wood floors, 12-foot beamed ceilings, and deep-well windows fitted with plantation shutters for privacy at eye level. Despite modern conveniences such as air conditioning and a big HDTV with DVD player, this room (and the entire house!) retains its period flavor and beauty. Relax on the sofa and chairs, admire the fireplace and all the beautiful architectural touches of the past, and enjoy some much-needed downtime from the sights of St. Augustine.


Just beyond the living room is a dining area for 6, with a dropped chandelier, big window, and lovely furnishings. You may be dining out during your stay here (and we highly recommend the nearby Conch House Restaurant, among many others!), but plan to do at least a little cooking -- you'll want to use the fantastic kitchen at St. George! This room is really a showpiece, with the original fireplace, big windows looking out to the courtyard, a beamed ceiling, and all modern appliances and cupboards (fully stocked with cookware and dishes). The crowning touch is the brick floor!


The first floor also contains a big library with beautiful built-in cabinetry and shelving, plus a twin bed to accommodate anyone who does not want to take the stairs. A half-bath is also on this floor.


The second floor is the sleeping quarters, with 3 large and beautiful bedrooms and a full bath. Two of these rooms have king-sized beds, while the third has a queen. Big 4-poster beds with ultra-comfy mattresses, large windows, original fireplaces, hardwood floors, and built-in cabinetry -- these are magnificent rooms! It's easy to see that St. George was the residence of royalty when you compare the size and appointments of these rooms to most other private homes of the period!


Travel to the third floor and you are in a vast space with a full bathroom and million-dollar views of St. George Street! It's no exaggeration to say that you will feel that history comes alive when you stay at this amazing house -- yet it also has all the modern conveniences necessary to be comfortable in balmy St. Augustine!


Make your reservation to spend your St. Augustine vacation at St. George today. It will fill up fast, and it is a truly unique glimpse into a vanished world. Treat your family to an unforgettable stay in a one-of-a-kind home right in the heart of America's Oldest City!

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now I am managing other people's properties in St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 500+ vacation rentals. We booked over 10,000 rentals and received over 3,000 guest reviews in 2011. You can find some of these by going to search engines and typing in Steve Milo or 'Vacation Rental Pros' . Thank you!

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
                  And the best part of it all is the location. You're within a short car ride of historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in America filled with pedestrian walkways with shops, cafes and first class restaurants. We are also close to Daytona Beach and the Daytona speedway and museum. We are also only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Orlando and Disney World/Universal/Sea World as well as 1 1/2 hour to the Kennedy Space Center. Our rental is also a short car ride to Ponte Vedra Beach and PGA golf Course and TPC as well as Jacksonville with the brand new St John's Town Center (with a Costco), Avenue Mall and River Front Arcade. There is also a minor league baseball team and a professional football team and stadium.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The beach is wide and unspoiled here by large crowds. Kids will spend hours exploring, and their parents and grandparents will love discovering new areas to relax and reconnect If you're ready for uncrowded beaches, balmy weather, clear skies, and Florida's natural wildlife, come visit us today!
