About John and Pat O'Brien
We moved to St. Augustine North City area in 2005 from Point Lookout, NY after friends of ours moved here and introduced us to this wonderful place. We searched for a double lot near the beach where we could build a fabulous home for us and a unique vacation rental next door. We wanted to live next to our rental so we could be available to our guests if needed yet private for us and our guests. After 1 1/2 years of designing and building we accomplished our goal and hope you love St. Augustine beach and our house as much as we do.
John and Pat O'Brien purchased this House in 2014
What makes this House unique
We love the location because you can walk to restaurants and hear the ocean from the house. We like that our beach is on the side of the beach where cars are not allowed. We are on a quiet street yet close to activities, restaurants, sightseeing, shopping. It offers the best of everything. We wanted the metal roof and blown-in insulation to make the house energy efficient and we added a hybrid water heater for the same reason. We built the guest house as though it was for ourselves and didn't skimp on the extras.

Lovely House close to beach and amenities
Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay in this house. It was well appointed and clean. Very close to the beach and also to a number of reasonable restaurants. Hosts kept to themselves but were available when needed. It was great that beach chairs, coolers and a few other bits and pieces were available at the house. We'd rent again without hesitation.
Wonderful beach getaway!
Beautiful, immaculately clean beach house. Owners are extremely accommodating as well!
Home Sweet Beachy Home
We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Great location to the beach and St Augustine historic district and everywhere else. The house was warm and inviting. Everything we needed was there. Very thoughtful owners. Plan on returning.
It was awesome for all #4 of us that stayed
Thank you for your comments. We hope to welcome you back sometime!
Super clean, super comfortable, beautiful beach house
We were absolutely delighted with our stay at John and Pat’s beach house. Every room is gorgeous and everything is extremely clean and well-cared for. We were totally comfortable in the house. We were there for our son’s college graduation and the house was perfect for a family gathering to celebrate! I was so touched by Pat’s thoughtfulness: She had gotten some graduation decorations for us and it made us feel so welcome! The house is just a one minute walk to the beach, and we started every morning with a walk on the beach. The kitchen is super well-equipped, the bathroom is gorgeous, and there’s a laundry room too.
Thank you for sharing your comments. It was a pleasure having you as guests and so glad you enjoyed your visit!

This beautiful private two bedroom carriage house comes with all the amenities you might need to get away from it all. It is on a quiet street just 300' from a beautiful white sand beach where you can swim, surf and walk for miles. Walk to a number of bar/restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream shops, bicycle rentals, surf shop. Nearby is St. Augustine Amphitheatre showcasing top band concerts and special events year-round including farmers market every Saturday. Visit the Beach Pier that offers a farmer's market every Wednesday and has volleyball courts and a pavilion where free events are held. Enjoy 'Music by the Sea' free concerts on Wednesday evenings in the summer season with local restaurants serving fair priced food. Bring your chair and cooler (alcohol permitted) for a fun night! Visit the historic city 4 miles away. The Alligator Farm and the Lighthouse are spots you might enjoy. In St. Augustine you can kick back and relax or spend your days sightseeing and busy with activities sun up to sun down. We recommend taking the sightseeing trolley downtown to learn all about the history of the oldest city and you can get on and get off at various stops. Orlando theme parks 2 hours away.
