About Chris McDaniel

I am from the Annapolis, MD area, however, I have lived in Florida for the last 17 years. Punta Gorda was home for 13 of that. St Augustine has been my home since 2010.

Chris McDaniel purchased this house in 2010

Why Chris McDaniel chose St. Augustine Area

I recently made St Augustine my home, so Jasen, my Grandson who is blind could attend the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. This school is within walking distance to my 'casa de vision'. What a wonderful blessing that has been. The rental of this house allows me to be semi-retired so I can spend time with Jasen so his Mom can attend school. Did I mention how special Jasen is...... Proud Grandma.

What makes this house unique

What do they always say. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!! TROLLEY right across the street. I love the fact my house is located just close enough to downtown to walk, but not so close you get all the downtown noise and traffic, (plenty of parking) and a quick (3 minutes by car) over the Vilano Bridge you are at the beach or new PUBLIX to fill the refrig. A beach you can drive your car on. Privacy and charm is the real plus to this historic home. A beautiful great oak shades the back yard so you can lay in the hammock and relax. And the back yard is fenced for your furry friends that are a most to bring for any vacation. Granite countertops and travertine shower are just a few of the upgrades we have done. Just take a look at the pics. Casa de Vision is cozy, but it is designed to get the most out of the space with open rooms and designer decorated. Close to restaurants, beach and attractions. I have had a lot of Flagler student parent's stay in the house.

Endroit agréable et très bien situé.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la Casa de vision. Elle est très bien située pour découvrir St-Augustine avec le trolleybus juste en face. Son jardin ainsi que sa terrasse permettent aussi une belle intimité. Enfin, Cristine, la propriétaire des lieux, est une personne charmante et intéressante. Nous recommandons cet endroit sans aucune réserve.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute little house with a great location. We could not have been happier with this rental. We took advantage of trolley stop 1 being right across the street and never used the car. Avoid traffic and fighting for parking! When we were home, the house had everything we needed. Stocked kitchen. Cleaning supplies for laundry and kitchen though I had brought our own just in case. Comfortable bed (can you say memory foam!!!). The yard was also great for the pup. Note if you have a small dog that the fence is slatted picket fence that they could sneak through. We look forward to another visit!

What a gem !!

  • 5 of 5

Vacation was wonderful, Chris your house was super cute, super clean and super convenient to everything . The beautifully landscaped fenced yard was not only a joy to wake up to but Lilly, our cocker spaniel was able to explore safely and freely. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. Thanks again for helping with some much needed down time, also loved the cocker spaniel print in the laundry room. Would highly recommend and hope to return soon

Thanks and hats off,

Blaine, Sid and Lilly
