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 St. Augustine

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 location, perfect size and great front porch.

Comfortable sleeping, clean and easy on the eyes. The AC works great!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on an unusually hot afternoon to a cool house, yay! We loved the front porch for mornings and the lovely living space after 18 holes of golf. We slept comfortably and although the floors creaked with the weight of the first riser, we found it charming. We appreciated having the house stocked as well as the shed, with beach items. Thanks!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house is located in a perfect part of the city, so close to all the downtown activity and restaurants. The house is very clean and roomy. It is well stocked with needed kitchen items and the front porch is great for relaxing after a busy day.

Thank you Fred & Geri

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We walked to everything. Great location. As someone said before it was nice to sit on the porch and people watch. It was St. Patrick's weekend so a bit more going on. The owners are very responsive and the place was found to be just as described. A much needed great few days with the family.

Lovely Home . Primo Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely cottage. Well appointed. Clean. Has all you need. It's actually very spacious. Good sized bedrooms, kitchen, and living area. This place is not off the beaten path, so there's some bustle; it's not super quiet. But, given the location—a stone's throw from everything downtown you want to do—it far outweighs any sounds. Kind of fun to sit on the porch and watch the passersby and the trolley. I waved to everybody on the trolley. Haha It's a fun area. We would definitely come back.
