About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 + 1 child)

Come away to relax in Saint Augustine in our "home away from home" wonderfully located for the historic town, beach, supermarket, designer outlet malls and access to the I95.

Email us about your trip, telling us who's in your group (family, friends or pets) & let us know your dates & any flexibility and we may be able to offer you a discount. Our vacation home is run by us, not an agent. Therefore, we always answer each inquiry individually and will answer any questions you may have.

If you demand comfort, quality and convenience in the places you stay, we will meet your expectations. This is our restful, second home, an enjoyable 1332 feet of living space for everyone to visit. Our guests are often friends or family groups meeting together with their pets, who enjoy the extra space our open plan living, dining main room and three bedrooms provide. Our beach-themed master overlooks greenery and has a king bed, walk in closet with its own bathroom with separate toilet. Both our other bedrooms have Queen beds, one with an adjacent futon, and share a full bathroom.

Located in a private cul-de-sac in Royal Saint Augustine, within a very quiet, appealing development that has its own golf course, there are pathways for running, strolling or walking your dogs and a country club. It is only 10 minutes from Historic Downtown Saint Augustine and 10 minutes from Vilano Beach. We recommend an early morning stroll, combined with shelling and dolphin watching. You can drive your car on and in our opinion it's the best beach in the area!

Although our spacious and inviting one-story home, sleeps six adults and one child comfortably (king, 2 queens, futon), we thought it important that the dining area seats eight, so an occasional friend could dine. All furniture and accessories are of good quality and taste! There is 46" HCD TV with Comcast Digital cable and separate DVD player and the en-suite with double walk-in shower has hairdryer & GHD straightening/curling irons. Our home has WiFi so you can keep in touch.

Equipped with everything you will need for your stay, we provide guests with basic food supplies such as coffee, sugar, tea, flour, oil, herbs, spices & relish to get you started. Both bathrooms have towels, wash cloths, shower products and first aid items, so you can languish restfully in the kingsize bed, enjoy a pleasurable, unhurried coffee on the peaceful lanai and plan your first day sight seeing in sunny St Augustine.

There are two well-kept playgrounds close by, one of which has a carousel, our daughter's favorite! We are a 5 minute drive from the designer outlet malls and to the intra-coastal waterway for launching of boats and kayaks, fabulous sunsets and various excellent recreation and dining activities. (There's 2 kayaks in our 2 car garage, you can use.)

And after all this - collapse in our private decked area, with a gas/charcoal grill and a fire pit for flame gazing whilst drinking champagne (of course). You can even roast marshmallows on it! Our back yard is enclosed with two high side fences and a low back fence which is up against shrubbery and trees so your dogs may wander securely. What a lovely way to end a fun filled day.

Keywords: House, Home, relaxing, family, pets, dogs, wonderful vacation.

About Juli or Si Carrette

We are Simon, Juli and Leonie.

We are English, from the UK!

Our St Augustine house is our second home and we are happy to share it with guests wishing to relax and visit Saint Augustine.

Juli or Si Carrette purchased this house in 2008

Why Juli or Si Carrette chose Royal St. Augustine

We love Saint Augustine.

Having close friends who live in Jacksonville, we have visited the area for many years.

We chose Royal Saint Augustine as it was convenient to everywhere and a very friendly neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

We love that it is only 10 minutes away from town, 10 minutes to Vilano beach - a very special place and close to the outlet malls with easy access to the I95. Our home is very tranquil and has a very private deck and lanai. We know that you will enjoy visiting!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was very clean and comfortable and in a great location- it's only 10 minutes from the beach and from the historic distric- and everything is very easy to find. The owners are very helpful and respond quickly which make a huge difference. Overall we had a great experience and we would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

Great Location @ St Augustine

  • 5 of 5

Julie & Si - Thank you so much for letting us stay in your property. Very well organized and well kept. The property location is within minutes of all the attractions in St. Augustine. We parked our car in the public parking and walked to all the museums and stores. Our stay was just perfect away from the noise of the tourist area but close enough to not drive more than 10 minutes in traffic. You were very responsive and helpful to all our concerns and issues. Thank you

Clean, pet friendly vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We travel a bit, most of the time with our pet(s). During our adventures we try to seek out home owner-touched properties because of the personal attention, detail & warmth. While these owners don't reside there, they have arranged for service to look after their property in the same matter as if they were onsite themselves. Encouragement to leave unspoiled leftovers for the next renter, for example, is one personal touch we could appreciate. Thanks for being pet friendly, too! We'd stay here again & recommend the rental to family & friends.

Great for a small family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and the owners were great to work with. The property is located in a quiet street but it is very close to all the amenities you may want to enjoy. From the outlets nearby, if you love shopping, to the proximity to

Historic Saint Augustine and there are grocery stores, liquor stores and small restaurant within a couple of miles.

The property is perfect for a family of six. Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen is equipt with everything you

may need. Nice bathrooms and a small fenced yard. If you are traveling with pets you need to consider this property.

We really enjoyed our time there and I encouraged you to consider it for your next trip to the area.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home and are sure you meant great and not grey... unless you were referring to the great comforter with seashells on it in one of the bedrooms!
