St. Augustine house description

'Vacation rentals offer more space at a lower price (than hotels)...'
- MONEY Magazine, May 2012, Best Deals on Travel

Our Victorian frame home was constructed in the 1880s, the first of many period homes that now populate the picturesque neighborhood, in an historic city recently named by Forbes Magazine among the nation's top 'prettiest towns.'
TVs with DVD are located in the first-floor living room and in the upstairs sitting room.
Upstairs, two bedrooms, each with king bed and private bath, can accommodate up four guests. On the first floor, a bedroom off the main parlor includes a private bath and a king bed that can become two twin beds. (Inquire about adding our Studio if you need to house more than six guests.)
The house is available for small weddings. Booking the house for a wedding is priced differently than vacation rentals. Please contact us for pricing and terms for wedding bookings.
Porches and gardens offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy the breeze that wafts in from the ocean, often scented with the fragrance of the property's citrus blossoms, flowering jasmine or roses.
French doors in the dining room open to a lovely brick courtyard with a delicate fountain, a peaceful, private retreat for a morning cup of coffee or an evening meal al fresco.
The 2001 renovation of the house included restoring the amber glow of the old heart pine floors. The house is tastefully furnished in both period antiques and contemporary pieces, encouraging relaxed comfort just like home.
The galley style kitchen is clean, compact and efficient, with granite countertops, oven/range, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, coffeemaker and toaster. Cookware, dishware, cutlery, glassware, etc.,are provided.
Parking is on the property - a rarity in St. Augustine. Once you have parked here, the historic sites, restaurants, shops, city marina, tennis courts and more are within walking distance. Beaches, as well as golfing and fishing charters, are only 10 minutes away by car.
SEVEN-DAY MINIMUM STAY REQUIRED for Vacation Rental. Terms and pricing for weddings are separate; contact us for details on wedding bookings.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: The owner was a daily news journalist/editor for 25 years before before being won over by St. Augustine's charms and moving here in 2001 to renovate and run a bed and breakfast inn. His involvement in the community has included hospitality marketing, fund-raising for local music and arts events, civic affairs councils and beautification efforts. An amateur musician and songwriter, he encourages visitors to enjoy the grand piano in the living room - but no 'Chopsticks,' please!

                      Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
                      St. Augustine is the nation's oldest city, rich in history, culture, recreational resources and wonderful, friendly people who love and celebrate their town. It never gets boring! It is a location radiating beauty and charm, from the hidden Old World brick-paved streets to the dolphins splashing in the bay. The climate is ideal with pleasant breezes, sunshine and low humidity most of the year.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The Uptown neighborhood where Our House is located is a destination for chic boutiques, galleries, funky antique shops, restaurants, gift shops and more. Surrounding this vibrant San Marco Avenue shopping district are quiet residential streets and historic sites. With most of St. Augustine within walking distance, we enjoy the best of small-town living and 'soft urban' NON-car-dependent convenience.
