CHARMING 2 BR & 2 BA COTTAGE, JUST A LITTLE OVER 2 BLOCKS FROM THE BEACH
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.
The Cracker House is not your typical Florida beach house, a friend of ours from North Carolina, has said that it's a 'Mountain Home at the Beach'.
While the Cracker House is certainly not upscale or "fancy", we think you will find it clean, comfortable, charming and in a very quite neighborhood, with great neighbors.
There are 2 grocery stores, just a short drive south on AIA, as well as numerous restaurants within walking distance from our cottage, to enjoy, if you don't feel like cooking.
We hope that if you decide to stay with us that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

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 St Augustine Beach
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!

Matches the property description
We enjoyed our visit. The house is a short walk to the beach, the neighborhood is quiet with friendly neighbors. We spent a lot of time on the front porch, screened porch and deck. The inside tends to be dark because several of lights didn’t work. I would have liked an empty shelf in the kitchen cabinets for the few grocery items we brought, but the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, appliances, pots, and pans - only two wine glasses, though. All in all, an enjoyable stay.
Loved our experience here. Cute house! Very comfortable. Awesome location. Pat was very kind and easy to communicate with! She’s great. We look forward to coming back this summer. Thank you so much 😊�
Great little house, in a great location in a great beach town!
We really enjoyed our stay at the beach cottage and in Saint Augustine. The house is really cute and was clean and in great shape when we arrived. Pat checked in with us (e-mail) and answered our questions right away. Great little deck and back yard and the kitchen is equipped well. Just a block and half walk to a beautiful beach. A few little shops and restaurants within walking distance. We also loved going into Saint Augustine city - the restaurants were amazing with very progressive menus. Touring the lighthouse is a little pricey but we did enjoy it. We'll definitely come back to Saint Augustine and would definitely stay in this house again.
