Our charming 2 bedroom cottage w/porch swing and private heated saline pool is a quiet retreat from a day spent exploring beautiful St. Augustine! Located in a quiet neighborhood near Matanzas Bay and just blocks from the famed Fort Castillo de San Marcos so you can park the car and forget about it!
This 2 bedroom/2 bathroom cottage has everything you need for a great St. Augustine stay. Built in 1875 it is full of charm but has been renovated and provides every modern convenience. And best of all you will have the place/pool to yourselves. The Main House in the front will NEVER be rented during your stay but if you prefer more space you may want to book it instead. You can see more about the Main House using listing #604638,
Location: The cottage is situated in a wonderful walkable neighborhood between the famed Fort at Castillo De San Marcos and the Mission De Nombres. You can make the pretty walk to the historical downtown St. Augustine district in just minutes. And if you want time at the beach it's only a 4 minute drive away.
Layout: The cottage includes an open floor plan overlooking the heated saline pool with large LR, fully stocked Kitchen and 3 seat Breakfast Bar. The 2 bedrooms and bathrooms are situated on opposite sides of the cottage so each guest has plenty of privacy. There are 2 separate patios for your use. One provides furniture for lounging and the other overlooks the pool and provides a shady area for dining or just hanging out. Both patios are accessible directly from your cottage. Plus we never book more than 1 guest at a time so you will always have the pool to yourselves.
Details: The Living Room has 42 inch flat screen TV, DVD. Kitchen has full size refrigerator and stove, double DW, microwave, coffeemaker and garbage disposal. We provide coffee and tea and stock your kitchen with a few snacks to make sure you never go hungry!
Bedroom 1 is a King Size bed with walk in shower and glass door. Bedroom 2 has a Queen size bed with a full sized tub and shower with glass shower screen. It also has a wall hung LCD TV. We provide wonderful memory foam beds and high end linens in both bedrooms for a great sleep!
Cottage has a private entrance and front porch which overlooks the pool. It is technically connected to the main house via a 12 foot long glassed in breezeway but is otherwise a completely separate structure and the two homes are further closed off by 2 sets of locking doors.
If you like our location but prefer more space you may consider renting the Main House instead (listing #604638). You may also rent the entire property (Main House and Cottage). See listing #607969. Remember: whether you rent the Main House or the Cottage we NEVER book more than 1 guest at a time so you will ALWAYS have the pool to yourselves.
Other Details: Cottage also has CHA, hardwood floors throughout, shuttered windows, stained glass windows, and custom porcelain tiled baths. There are 3 adult bikes (with helmets/locks) in the bike shed by the driveway.
