About Patricia Costin

We purchased this property in 2013 after visiting St. Augustine for years. We named it Riley's Place after our golden retriever who loved it! We now have two new puppies (rescues!) who are still working on how to enjoy the waves!!

Patricia Costin purchased this house in 2013

Why Patricia Costin chose Florida North East

To find a cute beachy style place on the beach side of A1A was a real challenge - not a busy street, short walk to the beach, cute decor, walk to shops and restaurants, and really nice rear pergola/outdoor area.

What makes this house unique

Mainly location; but also if you can't be ON THE BEACH - having this great rear pergola area is the next best thing! We LIVE out there!! Great for beach, access to downtown, and walk to get things you need! Very comfortable, casual atmosphere.

We are a mom and dad with six children, ranging from toddler to teens. This house was perfect for us. First, the location is near-perfect! It would only be better if it was ON the beach, but then we couldn't afford it! This was a quick, easy stroll to the sand. I took my coffee down to watch the sun rise each morning. Blissful! Oh, we forgot some toys back at the house? No problem, just run back to get them! Perhaps the best part was NO CARS on this stretch of beach!

The four bedrooms were surprisingly spacious and charmingly decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bathrooms (and the whole house) were immaculate. The pergola patio led to some of our happiest times. We brought board games but the house had many, including Apples to Apples Junior, which was fun for our younger AND older kids.

The handy storage area had boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, and a cooler. Don't rent a cooler, like we did! There's a big one there for you! Thank you to the home owners for the privilege of getting to stay in your lovely home! May all of your rentals be trouble-free.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing time we came for a wedding with 6 of my adult kids. The house was more than we ever dreamed it would be. Friends came over to the house with some kids and slept while we were on the back porch and they never heared a sound. The house had everything you need just bring your food and have fun. Salt Life Resturant was great took a trolly back and forth. The beach was about 50 steps from the house. Downtown St. Aug. is about 7 miles away Patricia the owner answer all my question right away and got our deposit not long after. She left a great book with all the local places to go. We all are planning our next trip in a couple months. I have told everyone I know must rent this place. This place was also immaculate.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home for our family. We brought a gaggle of teens and Riley's place was just the perfect "space" for that type of trip. Steps from a nice surf break, close to skate parks, plenty of shops, restaurants, hiking trails and history! The farmers markets were fantastic! The outside space was private and great for grilling and relaxing after a day at the beach. St. Augustine Beach is a very casual and relaxing sort of place. Would definitely recommend.

Winter Getaway at Riley's Place

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is the perfect place to enjoy your winter. We live in East Hampton , NY and have been coming to Riley's Place for 2 years . We are fortunate to be able to spend 2 months there . There is alot of restaurants with in walking distance Cafe Eleven, Salt Life, Sunset Grille, Coquina Beach , Dunes Cracker . We love this place can't wait to go back next Winter and spend 2 months there again. The beach is just minutes away . We love to just relax and sit in the back patio . This is the perfect spot to be in St. Augustine beach , We HIGHLY RECOMMEND you rent this place you won't be disappointed . It may look small from the outside but believe me there is plenty of room on the inside .You definitely will enjoy your time there. We can't wait to get there in January 2016. The owners are very easy to work with and look forward to spend our winters there .

Spring Break at Riley's Place

  • 5 of 5

As a former resident of St. Augustine I have searched high and low for a perfect beach house to stay at with family/friends and my beloved dog. This beach house was perfect! We had plenty of room and the location is ideal for St. Augustine beach! The house is within walking distance to plenty of restaurants (Cafe Eleven, Salt Life, Cone heads, Mango Mangos to name a few)... And is just a minute or less walk to the beach!! The back patio was a favorite spot of mine when we weren't at the beach! Our trip was extra special because my boyfriend and I got engaged our first day on the beach... Right after unpacking at Riley's. Couldn't think of a better house to have rented for us to stay at while we vacationed and celebrated our engagement! Very special! I would definitely reccomend this very pet friendly home and I hope to rent it again very soon! The owners/property managers are very easy to work with as well.

St. Augustine Beach is our favorite and we have searched!! This house has lots of character and charm, is not beach front but is so close and has a great area in the back to hang out! There are so many 'must dos' or 'could dos' or you can just hang at the beach each day!! Pls feel free to email for more info.
