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.

***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.

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!

Very comfortable, great location in St Augustine

  • 4 of 5

We spend a wonderful four days in St Augustine. The carriage home was perfect for the two of us - cozy, with enough room to spread out, kitchen for those meals we did eat in, cute porch and GREAT location - every walkable to get to town, also close to the trolley stops to hop on that for touring. We would come again versus staying in a small hotel room - love to have the extra room. Bed was very comfortable!

Great access to old town yet in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Loved this second floor apartment located in the carriage house. Just a short walk down Water street to the pedestrian friendly destination of old town made it the perfect place to unwind after experiencing historic St. Augustine. Especially enjoyed the extras like access to the private dock where you could relax to the sights and sounds of the water, the secluded side patio, with candles and cushioned wicker furniture, the balcony with cafe table (and even two hammocks cleverly sandwiched in) and view of the green space surrounding the 300 ft. Great cross , the four bikes and helmets. The weather was on the cooler side so we didn't get to use the bikes or the beach chairs and umbrellas or cooler available, but I did layer up and take a crisp hour paddle in the kayak. We would stay here again!

Quiet Neighborhood yet Close to the Action

  • 5 of 5

A very charming old Carriage House which sits in a quiet neighborhood. 2 Blocks away from the main street where you will find shopping and dining and the trolley. Very clean with all the amenities. The bikes provided were perfect for riding around town because the traffic in St. Augustine is very heavy. Down the street is their private dock where you can watch the sunrise. The patio area was not very well maintained but that was no problem for us because we didn't use it. If you want quiet nights but only 2 blocks from the action, this is the right place!

Great Locatin

  • 3 of 5

The location was great,and the place was very clean. The kitchen had everything we need, we had a great time.. The private dock was private and easy to get to and the bikes were great...the weather was a bit chilly in the am but it warmed up as the day went on.

We walked down to old down town and spend several hours, things close up early so if you want to do some shopping go early. My favorite place to eat was Harrys seafood.. go anytime but the patio was stunning in the evening.

My only request is to have a full length mirror an few more towels and candles. Its just someting us girls need.. :0)

The care taker was great and got back to us very fast and was very helpful..

Thank you ...

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.
