Night blooming jasmine

  • 3 of 5

Close enough to the amphitheater for about a brisk 30 minute walk to avoid he parking! Don Felder sang all of the favorites from Hotel California..Just down White on the way we ate marvelous Caprese and eggplant Parmesan at The Gypsy Cab.. fast, friendly...

cottage owner is close by yet non intrusive.. left us our favs of chocolate and IPA in the fridge.. beds and shower are a lot like sleeping at grandmas, but that was the lighthouse charm we wanted. The night blooming jasmine gets surprisingly arromatic in the main bedroom when the moon is high..Saint Augustine as always is all around charming....

Cutest place ever!

  • 5 of 5

This house was adorable and the owner even left snacks for us, and gave us great restaurant recommendations. We were paddleboarding here and it's so convenient to just go out the back gate and take a short walk to the community beach to put in :)

Adorable cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property. The cottage is charming, bright and clean, just as shown in the pics. Updated for all of your needs but maintaining the quirkiness of an older building with info of its history shown. Caution-may not be for the elderly or balance-challenged, as some of the floors are sloped and there is the odd step up or two. Its a little tight in the bedroom getting around the bed as well. But that was part of the charm and what we loved about it-hotels and resorts are not our thing. Our weather was perfect during our stay, and we spent a lot of our time relaxing in the very private courtyard that has a Key West flair. Plenty of room to chose sun or shade as the day progresses. We didn't need the A/C much except the bedroom, where the window unit worked great and we slept very well in the comfy bed.

There is so much to do, so close to the cottage and much of it is walking distance. We loved historic St Augustine. The neighborhood is quaint and quiet and we had our morning walk every day, choosing different routes. Spent a good portion of one day at the lighthouse with an awesome view.

Teresa could not have been more welcoming during our stay, right next store if we needed anything at all, but gave us our privacy. She answered our emails quickly and was very accommodating regarding our arrival and departure times. Thank you Teresa -If we are ever back in St Augustine we will definitely rent this cottage again!

This is the perfect location. Walking and biking distance to everything historical Saint Augustine has to offer. Whether you are interested in history or just want to spend the day at the beach this cottage is in the middle of it all. Great restaurants, live music, mini golf, alligator farm, a amphitheater all tucked under the lighthouse.
