Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Saint Augustine - Carriage House St. Augustine

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.

***PLEASE NOTE: Check-in is at 4 p.m. and check out is at 11 a.m. This is so we can provide the ultimate service and comfort to you, our guests.

Perfect Get Away Spot

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in a number of places when visiting St. Augustine throughout the years. We loved this spot, and are already looking to return soon. A short walk to downtown, this location is just perfect. Only downside with giving this spot a 5 star review is that more people may find it, and it could be hard to book in the future.

Cozy! Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is in such a perfect spot! A 5 minute stroll into town. Parked the car and didn't use it at all. Very clean, lots of towels, nice amenities with stocked kitchen and a super comfy bed. FYI- there is no oven but there is a toaster oven. We ate at awesome restaurants so we didn't want or need to cook/bake. We hung out on the patio and relaxed on the balcony most of the time we weren't exploring the city. Really appreciate the cable with HBO and the strong wifi signal. We didn't use the kayaks but will definitely next time we visit!

The Murray's

  • 5 of 5

We were a little unsure when we drove up to the property. It seemed like we might be in the middle of a random neighborhood. We could of not been more wrong. We were in a perfect location. The neighborhood is within perfect walking distance to everything. It was extremely quiet but, close to all the attractions.

The carriage house was clean and comfortable. The bed had high quality linens, and I sleep very well every night...which is not always the case for me. My husbands only complaint was that ESPN was not in the tv lineup. We found a local bar...Scarlet O'harra's which offered ESPN and reasonably priced beer...problem solved.

We enjoyed the dock and the provided kayaks. This was my first time in a kayak and to say the least I struggled a bit...okay a lot.. I made it safely to the nearby island. My husband and I were both concerned about my return trip to the dock. Adrenaline / fear must of kicked in and I made a spectacular return. We still talk about this excursion.

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.
