2 Bedroom 2 Story Home With Heated Pool In Historic Downtown
This 1400+ square foot downtown home with 2 bedrooms and Jack and Jill bathrooms has everything you need for a wonderful St. Augustine stay! Built in 2006 it provides all of the modern conveniences you desire but the home design includes thoughtful touches throughout including stained glass doors, hardwood floors, granite countertops and shuttered windows. Best of all you can park your car and forget about it! Plus you can start and end your day with a swim in the new heated saline pool or just sit in the garden and enjoy the peaceful sound of fountain and birdsong. Everything you need for a great stay is provided!
Location: The home is situated in a wonderful walkable neighborhood between the famed Fort at Castillo De San Marcos and the Mission De Nombres just a few minutes walk from historical downtown St. Augustine so leave the car behind!

The Living Room has a wall hung 40 inch flat screen TV, original art and comfortable seating. The Kitchen has a full sized refrigerator and stove, DW, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster and garbage disposal. Kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dish ware, utensils, etc.
Upstairs you will find 2 bedrooms separated by a hallway, laundry area (with washer/dryer) and Jack and Jill bathrooms. A Jack and Jill bathroom is one that has 2 toilets, 2 sinks and a tub/shower that is shared. Each bedroom has a toilet and sink immediately available with 2 sets of locking pocket doors for privacy. The shared tub/shower is porcelain tiled and has a glass shower door.

About pauline webb
We are a family of 3 who live between St. Augustine and a small rural town in CT. We love traveling, art, hiking and historical sites. And like most Jacksonville FL natives we've been to St. Augustine a 'million' times. For starters my family has attended the St. Augustine Easter Parade for over 40 years! In fact, when we moved to St. Augustine there was not a street, restaurant or historic site that we didn't already know well. It was like we'd always been there.
pauline webb purchased this House in 2012
Why pauline webb chose St Augustine
There are certain neighborhoods in St. Augustine that we have always enjoyed strolling through. Historic Abbott Tract (our neighborhood) has always been at the top of the list. Snuggled in between the Fort and the Mission alongside the beautiful Matanzas Bay it's one the best bases for exploring the exciting and historic downtown core. So when we found this unique home (which is basically two homes connected) we knew right away that it was perfect for us. We felt it had the right blend of architecture (some old and some new) and we loved the layout and overall vibe. We added the heated saline pool right away because the lot was small and it seemed the best way to utilize the space. We were right-it's been a big hit ever since! But the best part is walking to everything. At night when you walk past the beautifully lit Castillo De San Marcos on your way to dinner you know that you are lucky indeed! We hope you find your time in our home and neighborhood special too.
What makes this House unique
This architect designed property is extremely unique in that you have a wonderful mesh of old and new. The 2 story portion built in 2006 connects via glassed in breezeway to the lovingly restored cottage built in 1875. Heart pine floors, plantation shutters and tropical colors bind these structures together yet the open floor plan allows for modern living and conveniences. We love how comfortable it is to live in this home. It's upscale but relaxed. It feels fresh yet you notice touches of age with original bead board ceilings, stained glass windows and antique doors. With tons of windows it seems always to be full of sunshine. Comfortable and cozy. The location is exceptional and the neighborhood vibe is one of community and diversity. Everybody knows everybody...and we love it that way.

Our Second Visit and Still Fabulous!
We stayed three years ago and knew then we would never look elsewhere for a St. Augustine rental because this place is everything we could want in a VRBO - excellent location, spotless, and super comfy. I could be besties with Pauline....and I've never even met her! We're from Houston and Pauline bent over backwards to help us re-schedule our visit due to Hurricane Harvey. These owners are genuinely nice people and treat guests the way they would like to be treated. Grab this place if you get the chance!
Kelly-you are such a pleasure! It means so much that you chose to return and that you left such a thoughtful review...thank you! We really DO care and it's nice to be appreciated:-) Can't wait to have you back! All the Best-Pauline
This house was perfect for our girl's weekend -- it had everything we needed, and the location was terrific -- very walkable. Bedding was soft and decor relaxing. The pool was the best part. We absolutely loved it.
Very lovely home
A very lovely home in a well designed style. All the personal touches made it a very lovely home to stay in whilst staying in the quaint town of St Augustine.
Everything is walkable and very quiet and safe. The pool is a great addition to the home and the neighbours friendly.
Our favourite place in the town to eat was at the A1 brewery, best blue cheese wedge ever, and O.C Whites for atmosphere and music.
We will be aiming to stay here again when we return to town.
Beautiful home!! The property is close to everything.
Every detail has been though of. We had a busy week and it was wonderful to have a beautiful home to relax in.
The property is perfect!
The property is so clean, great amenities, with a wonderful location. We will definitely be back!
Amazing place to stay
What a great place to stay! We stayed in the main house which is very nice and clean. Plenty of room for the four of us. Big open kitchen. The backyard with salt pool is all fenced in with privacy fencing, very safe and private. After spending the days sight seeing and walking it was nice to sit out by the pool with the kids in the evening. The house is walking distance to the Fort and a couple of restaurants and Historic Down Town. The streets seemed quiet in the neighborhood, not too many cars driving by while walking. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to St. Augustine.
We are conveniently located between the famed Fort (Castillo de San Marcos) and Mission De Nombres where Menendez first landed and established the earliest colony in North America!
