About the property

CHARMING 2 BR & 2 BA BEACH COTTAGE

Quaint and comfortable: 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom cottage available to rent for your vacation or get-away. Over 1100 sq. ft. of living area. Each bedroom as it's own bath. Covered front porch, with a swing and porch furniture. As well as a private, screened in back porch that has a dining table and chairs for your enjoyment.

About Pat Parish

My husband Bill, and I bought the beach house in 2004. After visiting the area for over 30 years . We looked for quite some time until we found this little jewel. My husband grew up in Sarasota, Florida, and wanted to get back to his Florida roots. We currently live in the mountains of Western North Carolina and hope to one day retire to St. Augustine Beach!! Life's a beach!!!

Pat Parish purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Pat Parish chose Saint Augustine

We visited the area for over 30 years prior to buying the cottage......Great beaches, antiques stores, good bike and walking trails, good music in the Summer at the pier and wonderful restaurants. We love riding our bikes into the historic district and looking at all the old houses. Which takes about 30 minutes by bike or 10 minutes by car.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with our home because of the way it sits back in the trees and is really pretty private. It's the 3rd house from the end, on a dead end street. We love to sit on the swing on the front porch!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the 5th or 6th stay for us at the "Cracker House". We always enjoy our stay and find it to fit all our needs. There are great restaurants that are within walking distance to the cottage and the beach is just a quick 5 or less minute walk.

Pat was lovely

  • 5 of 5

This home exactly as advertised. Everything you need. Great location. Most beautiful beach in Florida! Not fancy but who cares. You'll sleep well at night and walk to the beach in the morning. We cooked and ate out half and half. Enjoyed the porch and secluded back yard. Thanks pat!

Fabulous little getaway

  • 5 of 5

My sister, her two daughters and I truly enjoyed staying in this cute and comfortable little beach house. There was not anything that was lacking in the kitchen, with utensils and cleaning supplies; the bathrooms, plenty of towels; or the bedrooms, with fresh linens. The house was so very clean and decorated beautifully. It is only a short, easy walk to the beach. Lots of nice restaurants are close by; and be sure to check out the Farmers Market at the pier on Wednesday mornings if you plan on cooking in the house. We had a wonderful, relaxing week. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
