About the property

2 bedroom apartment centrally located downtown - Sleeps 6!

Open the gates to your private courtyard past the patio onto the sun deck and enter this charming Victorian apartment Casa de San Marcos that will accommodate up to 6. Up the stairs to the second level where it opens up to an open concept living / dining and kitchen area. The French doors lead onto the veranda. The spacious loft above looks down into the living area. The master bedroom is located in the rear of the apartment away from the action packed street.

The apartment shares this Victorian home with LuLi’s Cupcakes, which is located on the first floor!

Casa de San Marcos is located right in the middle of St. Augustines historic district. You’re just steps away from antique shopping, food, and all sorts of attractions. Within blocks is the Castillo de San Marcos, Ripleys Believe It Or Not, The Fountain of Youth, Francis Field events, The Old Jail, and much more.

This location is also close to fishing, with the Vilano Pier just a few minutes away. Plenty of places to put in your boat, or rent a charter. Crescent Beach lies to the south a few miles for those looking to relax on a quiet beach, or join the crowds on St. Augustine Beach. Plenty of choices!

Charming, historic, convenient!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a unique place to stay with our family for an extended "history field trip." This darling little apartment was perfect for our family. We have four school-age children who fit just fine up in the cute loft and the master bedroom was a perfect retreat for us (mom & dad). The kitchen and bathroom were totally modern but the historic charm (windows, wood floors, balcony) remained. There were plenty of towels and kitchen necessities. The washer and dryer (though down the flight of stairs) were so helpful to have on site.

We walked EVERYWHERE from this location; it was so close to all the historic sites, shopping and restaurants. The bakery below was delightful and the cupcakes were delicious.

The rental agency was a pleasure to deal with and we highly recommend this property!!

happy client

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying here! The location was perfect and I really enjoyed walking the neighborhood and easily getting downtown. I especially liked Carrera Wine Cellar, located three blocks south of the apartment and offering wine classes and great wine. I liked the Rain Tree Restaurant, just two blocks north and Luli's Cupcake Shop is also wonderful! The apartment is full of character and very comfortable, and having the parking places is great. Marty and Cindy at First Choice Rental were extremely helpful and so informative about the area. I am already looking forward to my next visit!

Within walking distance of everything for five different tastes of fun!! Accommodations were fabulous, balcony "people watching" with Christmas lights in background provided entertainment during down time, which there wasn't much of. Would surely stay at Casa San Marco every time I can get away!

Our favorite spot

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year to stay in this wonderful place. We arrived before Hurricane Matthew and had to evacuate! Marty and Cindy were amazing. They answered all my questions (without one hint of annoyance) during what must have been a very stressful time for them personally and professionally. They made my husband and me feel very safe and cared about. Fortunately we were able to return after Matthew. I really can't imagine staying anywhere else. The property is clean, kitchen is well stocked if you feel like cooking and it is within walking distance of historic downtown. Thank you, Marty and Cindy for sharing this spot with us. We will definitely be back next year!

our daughter's wedding

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place close to everything, space to call home for a long weekend, charm of St. Augustine, yet away from the the hotel scene for your daughter's've found it. This property was what we were looking for and with last minute changes needed after the hurricane, a special find. It didn't hurt that we were also getting our cupcakes for the wedding from Luli's right below us! My only wish was that you could smell the cupcakes baking while you were upstairs... you couldn't. One part of our perfect wedding weekend was staying hear. Thank you to St. Augustine for your hospitality!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a long weekend in this charming home and it was perfect! Marty was great to deal with, especially since we were last minute booking. The location was great! We walked everywhere and even walked over to the beautiful cross on the water across the street to enjoy a peaceful nap on the green space. The porch was awesome for relaxing and people watching! We will definitely stay here again on our return to beautiful St Augustine!
