About Elizabeth Robbins

This perfect little beach cottage is the home I grew up in. My husband and I purchased it from my parents estate in late 2012 and spent the summer of 2013 renovating it by DIY. We decided to have the kitchen and master bath professionally renovated which was completed in September 2015. In October 2016 the floors and one bathroom were severely damaged by Hurricane Matthew and replaced. While the contractors worked on the floors and bathroom, we took advantage of the "down-time" and added new windows, fencing, deck, refaced the fireplace and painted inside and out! We live about an hour north in Jacksonville and have a grown daughter Jayme, and two dogs, Barkley and Ruston. My husband is the General Manager for a local Ford dealership and I work at a non-profit which provides professional development training to teachers and principals. We don't get to use the house often because of my husband's schedule but we're hoping to change that as retirement isn't too far off!

Relaxing week at St. Augustine beach

Had a great week here. So convenient to the beach! House is lovely - especially loved having pool. Daughter is enrolled in PT school so we will definitely be in touch to stay here again. Owner is very responsive and helpful!

Great vacation rental for all the family including the pets

  • 5 of 5

This rental was actually bigger than it looked in the photos. The pool is a great size seating area outside is big and if you take your dog there is plenty of grass for them also to run around. We had everything we needed and every room was very clean plenty of things to take to the beach and even the two bikes. Was so much to see and do we will definitely be back.

Wonderful two family vacation

  • 5 of 5

So comfortable, close to everything and owner is super responsive. This is our seventh time at this house in its various incarnations and this post- hurricane remodel is exceptional. You won't find a cleaner better maintained porperty for this price anywhere (and I have stayed at two other one block off the beach properties over the last ten years.) Book now with no worries and enjoy - this house gets booked earlier and earlier each year.

Five women, great kitchen, even better bbq beside the pool, happy hour at the beach bar or at the backyard pool, couldn't have asked for a better rental. The cottage is adorable, lots of room and everything is there for you. Took a cab into town a few times, but mostly relaxed at the pool. St. Johns Golf Course (not the Golf and Country Club St. Johns) , 20 minute easy ride away, perfect. Check the cupboards before you go for groceries!!

St. Augustine Cutie :)

  • 5 of 5

Even though the weather was seriously uncooperative, we had a wonderful time in St. Augustine due much in part because of this beautiful home. The photos are accurate; in fact, I suggested uploading some additional because of some new improvements / remodeling. The location is convenient, and the walk to the beach is made even more so because of the beach wagon (s). Everything is basically provided (you may want to bring toilet paper and paper towels). I can't say enough about this home's charm and overall warmth. We will definitely come back to St. Augustine and stay here. Lisa is accommodating, friendly, and responsive. We loved it.

Great place to stay close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house has been recently updated and the fenced in yard is perfect for pets. The location is close to downtown and just across the street from the beach. A good value.

St. Augustine is the nation's oldest city with miles and miles of beautiful beaches! You'll get the best of both worlds being close to the beach yet only minutes from historic downtown.
