Description

The space

This 1400+ square foot 2 bedroom/2 bathroom home has everything you need for a great Saint Augustine stay. The homes design includes modern appliances and thoughtful touches throughout including stained glass doors, hardwood floors, granite countertops and shuttered windows. And although the Cottage can be rented if you need extra space we only book 1 guest at a time so you never have to share the pool, grounds, parking etc.

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 minutes from historical downtown St. Augustine.

Layout: The first floor has an open floor plan overlooking the heated saline pool with LR, Full Kitchen and dining room space for 6-8. The Living Room has a wall hung flat screen TV. The Kitchen has full size refrigerator and stove, DW, microwave, coffeemaker and garbage disposal.

Upstairs you will find 2 bedrooms separated by a hallway, laundry area and Jack and Jill bathrooms. Bedroom 1 has a Queen Size bed, French doors to the upper porch, sitting area and a large closet. Bedroom 2 has 2 comfy twin beds (or we can combine to make a King), large closet and antique french doors leading to a small balcony. The Jack and Jill bathroom is located between the bedrooms so each bedroom has direct access to a sink/toilet and a shared tub/shower with glass doors. So you have 2 sinks, 2 toilets and 1 shared tub/shower in all. Sliding and locking pocket doors between allow you to section off these spaces. A conveniently placed washer/dryer is also upstairs for your use.

Downstairs you have direct access to two outside areas. You can lounge poolside or in the pretty little garden patio. Both provide plenty of seating. The garden patio has a fire pit and a gas grill for your use.

The main house is also connected to a cottage via a glassed in breezeway but is completely separate and closed off by 2 sets locking doors. As stated the Cottage can be rented if additional space is needed but remember we only book 1 guest at a time so you never have to share the pool, grounds, parking etc. Parking is on property and will accommodate 3 normal sized vehicles.

Guest access

Wifi, bluetooth speaker, 3 adult bikes (with locks/helmets), beach umbrella, beach chairs, cooler, gas grill and heated saline pool. We provide floats and pool noodles too!

Interaction with guests

While we prefer to give guests all of the privacy and space they desire if you need anything at all we have a local team including caretaker on hand and we are only a text or phone call away! Before you check in you will receive a detailed email about staying in the property and visiting St. Augustine. It has all of our favorites places and tips for a great stay.

The neighbourhood

Situated near downtown and all of the action but a truly residential and quiet spot with lots of trees and breezes from Matanzas Bay. You will find families, dogs, grandparents and colorful long time residents. Our neighborhood has a nice mix of architecture and home values too. Simple cottages built as servants quarters across the street and million dollar waterfront properties 1 block over. It's safe, friendly and a very desirable spot!

Getting around

You can walk to most of the things you will want to see. If you do need help you can take a pedicab, taxi, horse and carriage, Segway or our bikes. There are 2 trolley tour companies less than 3 blocks away. Either one is excellent.

This is a very unique find in a "tourist town" and we truly felt we were in a home vs. just somewhere to stay. The pool was such a bonus and we can't wait to go back. We were there for a wedding with our adult children and we all felt we had enough privacy while also being able to share all the wonderful amenities of the house. Pauline was great to work with and we can't wait to go back!

Pauline was a great hostess. Her home was one of the best Airbnb places I have reserved. The furniture and bedding was top notch as well as the bathroom and kitchen. Everything was very current or new. Definitely a great place for couples or families with plenty of space and amenities like the pool. Close proximity to downtown St. Augustine.

We rented this property for family since our place is too small for guests. Pauline was a great host, the property was perfect and exactly as represented. Pauline was always available which was super helpful when our guests locked themselves out, problem solved immediately. My sister in law loved the kitchen, brother in law loved the location, kids loved the pool-happy family. If this property is available- rent it!!!

This was our second time staying at Pauline's beautiful, immaculate comfortable home. The weather cooperated so we were able to use the pool, we enjoyed a Martguerita with great friends and and back inside to a fully stocked kitchen . The neighborhood is quiet and the beds are comfortable . I could go on we loved everything!! The house is in walking distance to everything you do not need your car. We love this house and will return at least twice a year. Thanks again Pauline, see you soon. Barbara

Wonderful welcome package, including an.anniversary card and bottle of wine! Wonderful coffee condiments and breakfast bars. We felt welcome and comfortable as soon as we walked in the door.

Very clean and beautiful home. The house is uncluttered and perfectly equipped with everything you need for cooking, enjoying the pool or taking a trip to the beach. We rode our bikes and walked every where in St. Augustine. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. The pool and garden area is amazingly beautiful and relaxing. We stayed in the main house and there is also a cottage rental which shares the pool and yard/garden area. We didn't even run into the other renters at all. It was like having the place to ourselves although not a big deal at all if we had to share the pool or garden space. Very well done airbnb rental and host!

Response from Pauline:
I really appreciate the thorough and thoughtful review:-) It is exactly my intention to provide guests what they need but no additional clutter so thank you so much for noticing! Wonderful to hear you were able to leave the car parked. Please come back with friends next time!
