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.

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.

Incredible Backyard Paradise
This was an extremely clean and well stocked vacation rental. Great chef’s kitchen with everything you could possible need. We spent most of vacation in the backyard paradise. The pool and the landscaping are very lush and tropical and the backyard is very private. The recent addition of the outdoor bar, refrigerator and large TV assured that we enjoyed this oasis to the fullest! Lisa was a wonderful host to deal with and was very available the answer our questions and offer recommendations from seafood markets to restaurants. We definitely a plan to visit this beautiful beach home again!
Awww thanks so much for your wonderful review. You were a great guest,thank you for all the extras you did before leaving, making it a great experience for both of us. Your welcome back anytime:)
The location of this home is perfect! 5 min drive to downtown, 2 min drive to the beach. The house itself is clean and well stocked, and there is a fun ”beachy” vibe throughout. The furniture in the living room could be better, but most of our time was spent outside in the incredible backyard pool. Being able to have our dog with us on vacation was a huge plus as well. This is a great property and our family had a blast! Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation!!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a wonderful review, we try very hard to keep many extras at the house for our guest use. We love the decor as you said a beachy vibe. We are in the process up upgrading bedrooms with new carpet. We are so glad you enjoyed the new summer kitchen, we also added an island in the kitchen with 2 stools as well for more prep counter space.
great family fun
Our stay was great. The house was wonderful. It was well stocked, the pool was fun and the outdoor space was used a lot. Had to drive a short distance to the beach which was no problem. Great location.
Wonderful stay with a great pool area!
We had a great stay and the house is very 'beachy' and comfortable. It was just 4 of us, so there was plenty of room to not be on top of each other. I specifically look for a place to stay with lots of plants / landscaping for that tropical feel and this home certainly fits the bill. We would definitely consider this home again.
This house was amazing, 2 families of 4 a piece enjoyed our stay. The back yard and pool were a perfect oasis for relaxing after long days. The home owner is still trying to button up a few upgrades and when they are done the house will be even more amazing. Loved the neighborhood, wish the folks across the street would remodel, lol. Overall, perfect, we will rent again if it is still available next time.
Thanks Daniel, especially being so understanding with us trying to add a big screen TV to go with new summer kitchen we recently put in. I couldn't agree more about the neighbor across the street. Elderly man taking care if his elderly mother. So we try go be understanding. Come back anytime!!
Awesome home with lots of space and a great pool!
We loved this home! Beautifully decorated, clean, lots of open space, a game room, and pool! The back yard was quite cozy and perfect for entertaining. We used the pool every day and loved that the house was already stocked with lots of your basic things. Lisa was readily available through text and email if I needed her with anything and she even texted to check on us mid week to make sure we were doing alright and didn’t need anything. It is so close to the beach as well as downtown too which we loved. There were nine of us total and we didn’t feel like we were on top of each other or cramped which was nice. We definitely enjoyed this vacation and can’t wait to come back!
Thanks so much Nicole, I'm so glad your family had a great time and that the house worked out well for you. I appreciate you taking the time to give us a great review. Come back anytime:)
