Bright. Cheery. Cozy. That's our carriage house in the heart of the downtown preservation district . Fully decked out for a wonderful getaway! Spacious, and comfortably inviting for two and has the small touches to make you feel right at home.

The space

Simply put it is a great space. Warm, inviting, an easy place to just be. What more could you want on a vacation. I have lived in many places in my life but my time spent in this small carriage house ranks as one of my most favorite. It has good energy.

Guest access

Lots of room to roam! The carriage house and its companion home is surrounded by citrus and fig trees and of course our (work in progress) organic garden. The 2-1/2 empty residential lots are completely fenced and comprise our eastside yard. The expansive feeling makes for an urban oasis. Wake up and pluck fruit, or fresh veggies from the garden. There are of course bikes to ride, a rather fancy washer/dryer and a bbq gas grill are available to our guests.

Of course you have heard the old adage; location, location, location. Each spring and fall the city of St. Augustine hosts a long list of events at St. Francis field directly across the street!

Interaction with guests

We are social people but we know how it is when you are on vacation. We try to read the signs and if our guests feel like joining for conversation and a glass of wine on the back deck then we look forward to getting to know them better.

We are not rule oriented people. Respectful, and courteous are how we treat our guests and as a friend once told me "It is a small and very round world". I think that was his way of saying that mutual respect is a good policy to live by.

Of course, if there is something you are unsure about just ask!

Potential for noise - November - April occasional weekend event across the street from the carriage house. Our guests enjoy having a front row seat. Never a complaint.
Pet(s) live on property - We have two very old and lovable dogs, Ila Mae and Boo Boo. For those guests who are not dog people, never fear they sleep most of the time.

We loved our month long stay at Hugh and Elizabeth's place. It was a priviledge to be able to stay here. The location is perfect,in one of the best, if not "THE" best position in St Augustine. Looking out onto the middle of Francis field at the front with views over their lovely gardens from both sides and rear. We loved and will sadly miss sitting on the balcony at the front, soaking the sun and watching the world go by. Enjoying, by the way the many envious looks from both cars queueing to get into the parking garage and passing pedestrians. Hugh and Elizabeth were great hosts, genial, friendly and very helpful whilst still respecting our privacy. The carriage house was very comfortable, with a lovely bed, great shower and ample sitting room / diner. The kitchen was good enough for us to cook the vast majority of our meals here. The washer and dryer downstairs in the garage look complicated but are in fact very easy to use. The bikes down there were a big bonus. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the carriage house and would be more than happy to stay again should the opportunity arise.

Excellent, clean, accurately described accommodation in a great walkable location for exploring all the main tourist attractions in St Augustine. The added value of having off-street parking is certainly a bonus in this area. All communication with Hugh was very prompt and efficient as was check-in/out. We would recommend Hugh's place to anyone planning to visit the area.

Hugh was a great host. He just happened to be outside when we pulled up and he offered to help carry our bags! The place was really clean and had a lot of nice artwork. It was also within walking distance to just about everything. Definitely would recommend!
