With laundry soap, dish washing soap, a few trash bags, teas, spices in kitchen,condiments cleaning supplies etc. Please feel free to use what you need. Just ask if you use it all to kindly replace it. What we love about this home is that it causes you to unwind and enjoy the simplicity of St. Augustine life. We come down quit often just to relax, ride the bikes into downtown area for dinner at Harry's, sitting outside and listening to a great local artist sing well known songs, then we might be off to Sangria's upstairs for more wine and great musicians playing every weekend. Then we never fail to go by to Mia Casa on St. George St. to say hi to owner Marney. They also have a great guitarist playing Saturday afternoons James Taylor songs. I was born in St. Augustine but have always lived in Jacksonville Fl. but spent many weekends visiting my grandparents and cousins in St. Augustine, but even today 57 yrs later I still find something I have never seen before there. So I hope you come and love exploring as we do and that you will come back often. Lisa Francis:)

About Lisa Francis

Lisa Francis purchased this house in 2010

Why Lisa Francis chose Saint Augustine

It is our retirement home, not just a rental to us, I was born in St Augustine, but lived in Jacksonville, but visited grandparents all the time who lived there. I love the area, being close to walking to the restaurants, pubs,is a plus and a short drive to the beaches, I always find something I didn't know was there even after 58 yrs.

What makes this house unique

We love riding bikes all over downtown area, trying all the wonderful restaurants there. Bringing our boat down and going down the beautiful intracoastal and watching the dolphins at dolphin pt.

We just love this city.

Great vacation home, we loved the pool

  • 5 of 5


We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home. The beds were comfortable and everything was fresh and clean. The pool was our favorite part of the stay, just great water and perfect condition. We enjoyed riding the bikes around the neighborhood also. The only sad part was wishing we could stay longer. I would highly recommend your home to everyone as a great choice and we look forward to staying there next year if it’s available. Thank you for an easy process and the thoughtful things provided to make our stay so comfortable.

I would give you 6 stars if I could.

The house is beautiful and in a great neighborhood. Very clean and modern, a great place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here. We love the location, minutes to the beach (every morning to watch the sunrise) and you can walk to downtown. We drove downtown as it is HOT in Florida in August. We live only 30 minutes from here so we are familiar with the area, parking at the old Fort is ideal if you drive a big truck and get worried about the teeny tiny spaces in the parking garage. Just get there early. The house is amazing and Lisa is awesome with answering any questions you may have. The restaurants in St. Augustine are great, however if you choose to use the amazing kitchen in the house and want to cook your own fresh seafood, I recommend Kyle's Seafood on US 1. Wonderful! They will even peel and devein their local Mayport shrimp for you. The pool at the house is awesome, we spent most of our time there. And if you forget everything your Mom ever taught you about sunscreen and get REALLY sunburned, there is a great nursery on the island that will pick out the perfect aloe plant for you. This was the most amazing, relaxing vacation. If you forget anything, Lisa has most likely made sure it is already there. We have stayed at many hotels/motels in St. Augustine over the years and this is by far our favorite place. My husband has decided that he wants to go back every year. Thanks Lisa! We had the best time!

Wonderful property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This property had everything! It’s a beautiful home inside and out with all the amenities one could ask for. The owners really provide all the comforts of home! We enjoyed the outdoor space tremendously-pool, bar, ping pong, foosball! Fun was had by kids and adults alike.

The location could not have been better. Historic St. Augustine is just a short walk or bike ride away. Our favorite, the beautiful Anastasia State Park is minutes away by bike or car.

Top notch property!
