About the Property
Cottage, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, Sleeps 2-4
This is an old fashioned 1930's beach cottage with lots of privacy as it is totally fenced in. We've hired a talented gardener/ designer who uses Florida native beach flowers and grasses to create a casual shore setting.
Come and relax at our 1930’s totally renovated cottage by the sea. We've decorated it with charming vintage finds. Including chandeliers that light up the patio area at night creating a magical setting for romance and family fun.
We love sitting on the deck at night feeling the breezes off the ocean.
Immerse yourself in the world of Old Florida, the way it used to be. Grab your coffee and watch the miracle of a sunrise as the dolphins play and the pelicans fly overhead. Sometimes you will see a couple of the locals fishing and it's fun to check if they "got lucky" yet. It's so peaceful walking along our quiet beach to the inlet where you can see the old St Augustine lighthouse on the other shore and other historical sites.
Many activities are available at the beach...parasailing, fishing, kayaking, boating. Why not sail on the pirate ship “Black Raven' If you sail on Wednesday it docks at Aunt Kate’s restaurant for a delicious seafood dinner. We also love walking to our favorite local restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. (We’ll leave you a list). You can walk to our beautiful pier (you can fish from it) too.
Feel like visiting the 16th century? A short ride over the bridge and you are in ancient St. Augustine. The oldest settlement and fort in the USA.
Explore the historical sites and enjoy the family owned restaurants. Take a tour. Either a trolley or a romantic horse and carriage ride.
Fall asleep to the sound of the surf and the swaying palm trees in our hammock on the deck. Yes you can see the ocean from the deck.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Augustine, FL, USA:
We rented a cottage in the area and fell in love with the location. I had always dreamed of having a cottage by the sea where we could grab our coffees, walk the beach and watch the sunrise. The charming quaint cottages and the quietness of the area are so relaxing. There is a beautiful nature walk across the street. Having the ancient city of St Augustine so close by makes the location perfect. Interesting restaurants and beautiful architecture just make it a dream location. St. Augustine is a very magical city. Take a horse and carriage ride! We love and use the cottage whenever we can. I like to think of our guests as friends, who are enjoying our cottage.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
In addition to being less than 10 minutes from the ancient city, you can walk to at least 3 good restaurants and our local supermarket, Publix.
