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!

Perfect clean/cozy/comfy & great location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect set up for two of us - living room, kitchen very well equipped, big bedroom with king bed (very comfortable) and bathroom while small was somewhat updated with pedestal sink and was just fine. Lots of fluffy towels, hair dryer, extra tp, soap, shampoo - nice touches.

An easy walk into town - 5 minutes

On a quiet street - not noisy at all - and water with available kayaking right there. (It was too cold for us to enjoy the bikes/kayaks but nice that they are available)

Our favorite restaurants:

#1: Collage (!!!)

#2: The Preserved

We loved having space to spread out and also linger over coffee and our home cooked breakfasts!

Highly recommend and would return!

Location and amenities contributed to wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house was perfect for our visit to St. Augustine. We rarely used our car, using instead the provided bicycles for easy sightseeing trips around the old town area. Sandy, the property manager, was very helpful in answering questions and making sure our stay was perfect! Kudos to her!! Quiet neighborhood and very comfortable king-size bed made for a relaxing stay! Will definitely stay here again!

It was everything we had hoped and in the perfect location! We will return!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was easy! We really enjoyed the porch, and the canon fire alarm clock, bed was comfy and the ac worked maybe too well, ha! Kitchen was well stocked with pans and utensils and we cooked at home every night! Used the grill on the last night and could only get one side going but it worked well anyway! We were especially enchanted by the location and loved being able to wander to the fort and down town from the neighborhood!

Property with Awesome Location and Southern Charm

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I certainly enjoyed our stay here as the proximity to the water and downtown area was perfect! Unfortunately, thanks to a recent visit from Hurricane Irma, the landscape in St. Augustine was in need of some TLC, and with another incoming storm cutting our stay short, we did not have time to enjoy the kayaks or bikes, but that just makes us want to come back to enjoy this amazing property and historical city to it's fullest. Thanks to Sandy for welcoming us upon our arrival, making us feel right at home! Can't wait to come back...

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.
