Our home is located less than a mile from the ocean, you can hear it in the quiet of the mornings while sitting outside enjoying your coffee and making plans for your day. People love looking at the landscaped backyard overlooking the pool. We provide bikes that you can jump on and take a ride to the Amphitheater, Alligator Farm, Surf Shop or beach. You can also take the 312 bridge over to the mainland for great shopping and 13 area restaurants. Anastasia Island is one of the coast best kept secrets. You'll be in heaven if fishing is your thing, our inland waters here have the best reds, trout, flounder and sheep head around. Our offshore fishing is a haven for divers and fisherman because of the many underwater wrecks in the area.They bring in trophy fish that arrive daily from charters that leave every morning from the Conch House. The Yacht Basin at Comanche Cove is home to the Annual East Coast Marlin Bill Fish Tournament. Take a day or two to visit Historic Downtown St. Augustine. It's just north 2.5 miles over the famous 'Bridge of Lions' and it will take you back in time. Don't forget to visit the Fort, ride the Trolley or the horse drawn buggies. They have a wonderful story about the history of St. Augustine. Take a walk on St. George Street with its nostalgic, unique clothing shops, coffee shops, specialty fudge and candy shops. Make a stop at a local restaurant where you can sit, set down your bags be served some homemade artichoke dip, your favorite drink while taking in the sound of a local artists playing a guitar and singing for hours. Its dripping with culture and full of surprises. There is something for everyone and the sounds and views change at every corner. Walk the cobblestone streets, take a lot of pictures and fill your bags while you make memories with your loved ones. Bring sun block, a bathing suit, a pair of shorts and real comfortable flip-flops because you won't need much more than that. The views are spectacular and the scenery is unforgettable. It will be one of your most fun filled relaxing vacations yet. You will come back often as most our guest do.

About Lisa Francis

My husband and I have 3 children from 35-22. We currently live in Jacksonville. We love to jump on our bikes and ride downtown to historic St. Augustine, stopping at all the bistros and listening to local musicians. We hope you will love it as we do:) Lisa

Lisa Francis purchased this house in 2012

Why Lisa Francis chose Saint Augustine

After searching for over a year we knew this house was the one as soon as we saw it. Being close to the beach, with a large pool and the house is family and pet friendly. Its open large kitchen gives room for everyone to be in there but not in each others way. We also wanted to provide a game room and outside shower house for when our guest come back from the beach for the kids to rinse off and have a place to have fun. We had a vision to turn this home into a beach oasis and I feel we have accomplished it and now want to share it with our guest.

It is also our personal home that we share and just ask for everyone to respect it:)Lisa

What makes this house unique

Its a lovely home you and your family will make wonderful memories, going to the beach, exploring the area, and eating at some of the best restaurants around. While also learning some amazing history and having beautiful scenery to take pictures of. Some guest just love being at the house, enjoying the pool, while grilling out on a beautiful sunny day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the moment we drove up into the driveway we knew this was going to be not your regular run of the mill VRBO rental. The creativeness and the cool beachy decor was amazing and has so much to offer from the wonderful location to the beautifully landscaped yard. This house was perfect for our family and our pet daucshund who loved running around in the privacy fenced in large backyard, with a beautiful pool. We were close to the beach and a lot of great restaurants, that we took full advantage of. We would recommend this house to anyone who likes a step above the normal. We like working with owners rather management teams, and Lisa was easy, funny and willing to go over the call of duty, she is only a phone call away. Don't hesitate to rent this home!

Our family spent Thanksgiving week in this beautiful, fun home. Despite some cooler temperatures & rain, the grands enjoyed the pool & outside shower. We used the bicycles provided. Oldest granddaughter feel in love w/the yellow cruiser. We enjoyed the beach only a short distance away, the sights in St Augustine, including Christmas lights, fort & fountain of youth. We made many memories preparing & sharing our Thanksgiving meal together in the extra large kitchen w/double oven! The juke box added to the fun! Great place! Lisa is a wonderful owner & always available. Everything you could need is provided or near by. Highly recommend!!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two goldens spent a wonderful relaxing week in your lovely home. The house is perfect it has everything you could want for a great vacation, the pool area is so perfect we never made it to the beach and there was a kiddie pool for our fur babies. We only left to run into town to eat and then back we went, it was very convenient to historic St Augustine as well as the beach should you want to go and explore or just stay at home and enjoy the backyard oasis. Thanks for sharing it with us!!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We looked at properties with pools all along the east coast in this price range and thankfully decided on this property. Everything about it was amazing. It's pretty much already all been said in previous reviews, so I'll just say that if you book this property you will not be disappointed. It's beautifully decorated, well appointed and was so enjoyable that even with 4 kids we only left the house a few times during our one week visit. The addition of the jukebox in the game room, as well as the chimnea on the patio and the fire pit by the pool made our stay even more enjoyable. We're already looking forward to our next stay the next time we're in Florida.

We have rented several homes with VRBO in the past and have never been in a home so well thought out. Lisa was fabulous and provided us with everything from extra batteries in case we needed them ( didn't), a great recreation room, pool, bicycles with helmets, outdoor grill, and plenty of extras. Great location. Lisa was immediately accessible and very helpful with any questions. 5 star experience!!

Beyond words!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property were beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice! My family and I, including our dog loved every minute of our stay at this fabulous house. The house and yard were immaculate. The neighborhood is quiet. The pool was amazing. Lisa was a pleasure to work with. She was prompt and courteous when addressing any of our questions. I would recommend this home without hesitation. Next time we visit St. Augustine we will be contacting Lisa. Thank you for everything!

Beach House Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My family of four humans and three little fur babies just spent a week here. It was our first time visiting Saint Augustine (we try to visit somewhere new every year) and we loved the character of the old city, the wide, sandy white beaches, and the vibe of this perfect little beach house. My 17 year old son, who is not easily impressed, said this was the best beach house we'd ever stayed in, so there ya go! Having a fenced yard with a pool was a huge bonus too. The doggies had the best time exploring the yard and chasing lizards while the rest of us enjoyed the pool. Great vacation! :)
