Property description

Located in the historic Lincolnville district of downtown Saint Augustine, this Victorian home was build in the late 1800's much of which is still original including wood floors and front porch. Apartment has recently been completely renovated and features a new bathroom/shower. Kitchen area has granite counter top, built in microwave (no range) and new cabinetry. Cutlery and crockery provided along with all bathroom supplies. Queen sized bed.

Bed/living room, kitchen area, Bathroom, private front porch with porch swing and porch furniture. Parking in rear of house.

We hope to have interaction with guests as we love to meet new friends. However, should it be requested, privacy will be completely respected. Longer term guests may even be invited to our house around the corner for dinner (depending on our schedule for that week) no promises :-)

An historic residential neighborhood, peaceful and safe. Surrounded by beautiful Victorian era homes where just about all our neighbors are our friends. A two minute walk to the "old Ice Plant" which is now the Ice Plant Restaurant and the Saint Augustine Distillery and walk for a few more minutes and you will arrive at the San Sebastian Winery both of which have free tours and tastings, the winery restaurant has live music at the weekends. We are close enough to everything we feel the entire town is our neighborhood.

If you plan to stay around the historic downtown are we are 10 minutes walk from almost anywhere. There is public transportation in the form of " The Sunshine Bus Company" and Pedi-Cab services. We also provide bicycles and no extra charge should they be requested.

The space is also provided with a coffee maker and filters an electric kettle and all the tea, ground coffee and sugar you need. There is also a portable ironing board and iron for your use. The bathroom has everything you need including a hair dryer. Brochures from a lot of the local attractions are on hand as well as a map of the area. Should you need anything else (within reason) to make your stay a memorable one please let us know in advance, my husband and I are always available.

This is a peaceful house and we expect our guests to treat our place as they would treat their own home. There are other people permanently living in the home so excessive noisy/rowdy behavior will not be tolerated should we get complaints.
This is also a non-smoking apartment although you may smoke outside on the porch if you wish as long as its kept free of cigarette butts etc. We also do not allow pets of any kind, sorry. Lastly, the floor is antique wood that has recently been refinished so please, we would prefer it if no spiked heels were worn inside (that goes for the women too :-)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am an English teacher originally from China, I emigrated to the United States in the late 90's to continue my career in teaching. I married my husband four years ago and we have two wonderful children. We are all loving life in Saint Augustine!

Why the Owner Chose Lincolnville, Saint Augustine, FL, USA:
My Husband and initially had the opportunity to work from home and from anywhere so we traveled all over Florida from Tarpon Springs to Naples on the Gulf Coast and from Fort Lauderdale to Jacksonville on the Atlantic Coast. The choice was very clear the moment we set foot in Saint Augustine, we came back weekend after weekend and fell in love with everything to do with this wonderful, historic town. Saint Augustine has everything. We bought this property as our primary residence but after two years we had our first child and soon after realized the house was not really set up to raise a small child due to the house layout and the quite low porch balusters. However, we loved the neighborhood so much we purchased another Victorian house in the next street. We recently renovated this ground floor apartment specifically for vacation rental, we love meeting and making new friends all year round.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This house is in an historic residential neighborhood, peaceful and safe. Surrounded by beautiful Victorian era homes where just about all our neighbors are our friends. It is within a few minutes walking distance to everything Downtown Saint Augustine has to offer. One of the most attractive things to my husband and I was the fact we don't have to drive anywhere except to the supermarket once a week. There is also something going on almost every weekend, festivals, art/craft shows and music everywhere. Please also check out our other downtown apartment: http://www.vrbo.com/898515
