About The Lavan's

Our family had either vacationed and/or lived in the beach town of Cape May, NJ for decades. It is a lovely small Victorian town and the oldest seashore resort in America, which placed it on the National Historic Register. Everything was within walking distance, the beach, restaurants, etc. After having to move to Florida because of health reasons, purchasing a home in St. Augustine was a natural choice because it replicated so many of the amenities that we loved about our beachy home town from up North.

Thankfully it doesn't also replicate the cold winters!

The Lavan's purchased this house in 2014

Why The Lavan's chose Florida North East

It is the perfect location....Short stroll to the best beach in town, local restaurants, gift shops, and fishing pier. As well as a less than 10 min drive to the downtown historic district.

What makes this house unique

This is a private home on a very quiet street, and only a short stroll to the most beautiful stretch of white sand beach in St Augustine. And even better.... no cars are allowed on this part of the beach! We are so close to the ocean that you can see the beach entrance from in front of our house, and you can even hear the ocean!

The Perfect Location to Chill in the Saint Augustine area

  • 5 of 5

What the The Lavan's have accomplished with their reno is amazing. While the cottage is small, the use of space makes it feel large and was perfect for our family of 4. The back yard is a manicured oasis - I wish mine looks sooo good! The kitchen has all the things we needed and our Thanksgiving couldn't have been better. Thanks again for sharing this treasure!

Great getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The pearl cottage is such a perfect place to stay if you want to visit St. Augustine and spend time at the beach. Joan thought of everything for a great time. We had everything we needed to enjoy the home away from home feel. We ate out most of the time but cooked a few meals at the cottage and we had everything we needed. The backyard is a great place for enjoying the mornings having coffee on the patio and evenings just chilling enjoying a glass of wine. Everything is so close and the beach is a short walk. The cottage looks to be recently remodeled and was very clean. We will stay here again. Hopefully next year. Thanks.

THIS LITTLE PEARL IS A GEM !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay (Sept, 2016). The Pearl cottage is an exceptional find - lovely, bright, warm and inviting - and VERY clean. The neighborhood is quiet, and friendly. We did not want for anything during our stay as the owners have covered every little detail, right down to an outside shower to rinse off when you return from the beach, which is a very short walk away. The beach is beautiful; a very wide and long stretch, great for walking, sun bathing, surfing and body surfing. Restaurants are close by, and St. Augustine is a short drive away. We highly recommend the Pearl to anyone looking for a beautiful and accommodating beach experience !!!

fairly good stay at "the Pearl"

  • 3 of 5

Tried to use the garbage disposal and found it plugged. I was able to clear it so that the dish washer would be able to drain; and, it appears to have worked as I did several runs of dishes in the washer with no problem. However, I suggest they have it checked and add a note to your folder for renters about what is acceptable to put into the disposal.

Also, found a roach on the kitchen table. I suggest they have the exterminator spray around the house.

Finally, some guy showed up with his partner saying he talked with my wife about tree trimming in the back. I was not aware of any tree trimming arrangement, and certainly my wife did not call. I think you would have left me instructions, if there was any arrangements for workers during my stay. It is possible that this was a scam as I have run into this situation at my own place, workmen just showing up. I asked him to leave the property and he did with no problems.

Anyway, we did enjoy our stay and they area beaches and historical sights were great.

Owner's Response: We encourage our guests at the beginning of their stay to please contact us if there are any problems, or if there is anything that they need. Unfortunately, we never heard a word from you until the morning of your departure, when you sent us a personal email. At that time, it was impossible for us to assist you in any way. We did respond to your concerns via email, explaining that we would never schedule work to be done when guests were present. We greatly respect our guests privacy, and would never intrude on their vacation time. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the area so very much.
