About Fred and Geri Pompeo

Just a couple of folks from New England yearning to move to this wonderful City of Saint Augustine.

Fred and Geri Pompeo purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Fred and Geri Pompeo chose Downtown Historic District

We bought in St A with the intention of retiring here someday. After debating whether to purchase at the beach or downtown we decided on downtown when we learned that you can drive and park on the sand at the beach - making it easy to go to the beach - so downtown was it. This home was picked because it was the perfect size, all rooms on one floor and so close to everything downtown that we could walk to and from places with ease. Plus it had a great front porch! It was rented full time for awhile until our daughter, when looking at colleges, figured out it was a great place to live while she attended Flagler College. So it worked out well for her. Now we visit occasionally and offer it to others to enjoy as they visit St A - until the time comes we retire here permanently.

What makes this cottage unique

A great walkable location, perfect size and great front porch.

Beautiful home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I loved this house! Yes, it's a cute home, and well furnished with everything we needed and very comfortable. They even had beach chairs and boogie boards, a grill, laundry facilities, everything we needed. The location can't be beat as it's close to everything within walking distance. We can't wait to come back for another visit!

This is an amazing property in the historic district!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely stay here again. This is a beautiful home in the perfect spot for walking to historic downtown, and the front screened porch is great for watching the horse and carriage or train go by; that was my two year old granddaughter's favorite room in the house. The owners have thought of everything. I highly recommend this property.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented several homes this past weekend in St Augustine for our daughters wedding

This house was a perfect location for us

The owner was quick to respond to my needs during check in time . The house was set up very nicely with everything needed.

We slept very well in the nice comfortable beds. My grandkids used the daybed with trundle that worked out nicely .

Would recommend this home for anyone looking to stay close in town

Loved it

Simply lovely

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! When they say it is a perfect location for downtown St.Augustine and Flagler they are right on point. The front porch was very welcoming. It was our favorite spot to sit and visit. The bedrooms were cute, Owners were prompt with any questions. Great stay!
