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 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!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful place to stay and we really enjoyed our time here! The house was so cute and perfect inside for us and we were all so comfortable. It was too cold outside to use the pool but we were able to eat at a very good restaurant close by and explore downtown St. Augustine without having to go very far! Would love the opportunity to stay here again if we planned another St. Augustine trip in the future.

We had an amazing weekend at this beautiful home. The pictures don’t do justice for what the house truly looks like. The owner was very accommodating and we can’t wait to stay again!

Great Location, Great Interior Design and Very Clean!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 3 Days with our puppy String Bean. The completely fenced in back yard and pool were a rare treat on our road trip from Boston. There is a baby gate around pool (very easily removed if needed!). All bedrooms and baths were comfy and clean! Tv in living room was an added bonus with a couch for each of us to chill. Beach and restaurants are literally a 3-5 min walk away! Plenty of beach chairs, towels, cooler, toys ect for Beach fun. Also kitchen was updated and beautiful if cooking on vacation is your thing! Thanks for an amazing stay and we will lost definetly return!!

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $140
Damage Deposit $140

The $100.00 refundable deposit is an excessive cleaning fee. This amount will refunded as long as the check out procedures are followed, such as starting the dishwasher and a load of laundry (detergent pods provided for both), taking trash out, etc. Check out procedures are spelled out in the information sheet which you will receive after booking. Unfortunately, some guests have left the home in terrible condition and the $59 Property Damage Protection does not cover the additional cleaning costs. Again, the fee will be refunded as long as the house is left in decent shape.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
