About the property

1 bedroom riverview carriage house in historic downtown St. Augustine

Located in St.Augustine's historic Abbott Tract, our beautifully restored one bedroom Carriage House apartment is four blocks north of the Castillo de San Marcos.

This carriage house is situated on the estate of a 19th Century Victorian Home on Water Street, and includes access to the Intracoastal Waterway with beautiful views of St. Augustine's Inlet and bay from our family dock.

The dock is also available to you and your guests for fishing or just watching the plethora of sea life. There are two kayaks for you to use to explore the creeks and bay, including a nearby uninhabited island.

We also have three bikes available for use to our guests.

The apartment has a large bedroom containing a king-sized bed and there is also a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room. As well as a single sleeper sofa in the bedroom.

The fully-equipped kitchen includes all new appliances, cookware, glassware and utensils. Professional height counter tops make cooking a pleasure.

The apartment also has wifi, new ductless air conditioning, two flat-screen HD televisions with satellite TV and a full bath. There is also a private courtyard downstairs with a new deck and BBQ grill.

Everything St. Augustine has to offer is right at your fingertips with this one-of-a-kind rental.

Great location! Cozy!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed with our two boys, 3 and 11. The space was perfect for us. The boys slept comfortably in the sofa bed. We cooked several meals at the cottage and had no problem preparing meals. There is no oven, but the toaster/oven worked well for any needs we had. We walked to everything in downtown St. Augustine! We love the location! There is a beautiful view of the river and inlet from the dock. The cottage has a lot of character, and is clean. We drove to both St. Augustine Beach, and Vilano Beach. Vilano is closer and less populated. We loved that area! We definitely recommend this property!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the carriage house. We enjoyed riding bikes and kayaking in the mornings. Everything was close enough to walk. The caretaker, Sandy, was very helpful. Our trip to the beach was made even better with the use of the beach chairs. The king bed was extremely comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your property.

Loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights. I was impressed with all the extras you do not normally find with rentals....dish soap, new sponge, coffee filters, hand soap, washer detergent., extra towels, blankets...just to name a few. The location was perfect for walking to town and attractions...easy access to roads for a beach and light house trip! The house was comfortable...a/c and fans worked well...bed was comfortable, too! Loved the balcony for reading and relaxing. It rained off and on during the first part of our week, so we really did not get to use the courtyard...but, it was extremely nice. Loved having the dock to relax with an adult beverage after a busy day! Thanks for your hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

I m not good at writing reviews. We had a wonderful stay at this property. As stated in the description, it really is just a short walk from downtown. We enjoy everything thing at the property. It just seemed like home. Everyone in the neighborhood was very friendly and helpful.

Can't wait to go back. Thank you Greg and Sandy the caretaker.

Absolutely wonderful stay, great property, hate to leave.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the "carriage house." It offered every thing we needed for our two week stay. Sandy was terrific, available when we needed her and friendly and funny! This is a perfect location, the beach was a five minute drive with easy parking and we could walk downtown easily in the evening for dinner. The dock offered great views of the water and coastal wildlife. We definitely hope to return.

Cozy place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

When we got there we where immediately greeted by Sandy, She was a amazing hostess she showed us round the property, and was extremely helpful and answered any questions we had. The boys loved the hammocks and actually slept in the 2 nights. The kayaks were great. The location was great we were able to walk to everything. We would definitly stay again if we were in the area.

St. Augustine’s rich heritage makes the city and its surroundings a unique getaway for visitors. Founded in September 1565 by Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles of Spain, St. Augustine is the oldest continually inhabited European-founded city in the United States – more commonly called the 'Nation’s Oldest City.' Visit St. Augustine and dive into more than four centuries of history that owes much to the Spanish and English, to Greeks and Native Americans and African Americans. Stroll the narrow lanes, enter the many museums, visit landmarks such as Castillo de San Marcos, Ponce de Leon's 'Fountain of Youth,' and the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse. As the nation's oldest port, there's also plenty to do in and around the water, with a plethora of boating activities and resources and some of the state's most accessible beaches. St. Augustine – a place for history buffs and everyone else.
