Casa Antigua is a 2 story, 1910 home built by Henry Flagler's Model Land Company nestled in the heart of downtown St. Augustine. This home is a piece of St. Augustine's magnificent Flagler era history, a time when many of St. Augustine's most impressive structures were erected. We just completed a full renovation/partial restoration on this home to bring back its original luster and incorporate all of the modern day, upscale amenities you love. The house features many beautiful architectural details such as original heart pine floors, 11' ceilings, spacious rooms, formal dining room with wainscoting, oversized windows, columns, marble fireplaces (non-functioning), and much more. Much of the furniture and decor was chosen to reflect interior design styles popular at the time such as art moderne, art nouveau, and art deco.
Casa Antigua is handicap accessible and is located in the most central and safest downtown neighborhood block. It is just a five minute walk from all downtown destinations such as the bay front, the fort, wedding venues, restaurants, art galleries, and shopping. Tennis courts are only 1 block away as well.
Spend some time relaxing in one of the rocking chairs on the large, columned front porch overlooking other historic homes and passersby. You will likely see historic reenactors and tour groups walking down the street. Enjoy fresh grapefruit from the tree out front in November and December. Our magnolia tree, jasmine, and azaleas bloom in the spring and many times into the summer.
One covered off-street parking spot is included in the rear of the house and one street parking permit is available, so you will have room for 2 cars. Additional street parking is often available, though a little harder to find during special events. The historic downtown parking garage is just one block away as well.
You will be renting the entire home which includes 3 large bedrooms with closets, 1 dressing/lounge room, 2 bathrooms with showers, a study/den, living room with 55" flat screen tv open to a formal dining room. Completely renovated kitchen stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, and pans. Washer and dryer included.
Linens, towels, toilet paper, dish soap and many other neccessities are provided. Guests only need to bring shampoo, conditioner, and other personal toiletries.
* Casa Antigua may not be a good fit for families with small children. Our home holds significant historical and sentimental value and, unfortunately, is simply not set up to accommodate the needs of small children.*
