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!

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.

Perfect in Every Way and Very Dog Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week with our three dogs and loved everything about it. We almost didn't want to leave to go to the beach! It was so comfortable, sparkling clean and the owner Lisa thought of everything!

We used the pool, the bikes and all the beach goodies in the garage daily, which made for an easy, happy stay. Oh and I should mention, the pool is PERFECTLY located. It's very private and while there are some beautiful palm trees nearby, they don't shade the pool so you get plenty of sun.

The back yard is bigger than it appears in the pics and it's completely fenced all the way to the ground so even our little Chihuahua couldn't escape. That's rare!

Super comfy beds and linens and plenty of closet space. The ONLY thing I wish this home had was a bathtub. It's always the first thing I look for but I forgot so that's my fault. That said, the showers are beautiful with good water pressure.

New flat screen TV in the living room and nice TVs in the bedrooms as well. Cable and wi-fi worked great.

The sun room was our favorite spot in the house - we all gathered there every afternoon after a long day at the beach. Bright, cheery and cozy. Of course, the entire home is - inside and out.

The beach is just a few minutes away. To give you an idea, it's a straight shot out the door and you pass maybe 3 houses before you cross A1A, then maybe another 6 houses before you're hittin' sand. It's that close! And there are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, ice cream and coffee shops nearby. There are also some nice shaded trails nearby, perfect for a bike ride. Old Town St. Augustine (the historic district) is only about 10 minutes away.

Lisa obviously takes great pride in ensuring her guests have an amazing stay. She was super attentive and quick to answer any questions. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! :)

Fantastic Cottage by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our week long family vacation in this home was wonderful. The home is newly remodeled and very clean. The location is perfect away from the hustle and bustle but a very short walk to the beach. Our family simply used a beach cart and walk to the public beach. The beach was not overly busy. St. Augustine is only a short drive away to experience the amazing history of the town. The owners were very attentive and welcoming. Our kids loved the home and asked that reserve again for our spring break. Unfortunately it was already reserved. We hope to return again and enjoy the home. Thank you Lisa for helping make our trip fantastic.
