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!

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.

Cozy little place for two (or three!)

  • 4 of 5

Thank you to Katie for answering all our questions before our trip! My husband and I spent our vacation (March 5-11, 2017) in

St. Augustine, FL. This was our first time in St. Augustine, and the Carriage House was a major part of the fantastic time we had! The king sized bed was firm but comfortable. The kitchen was was fine for what we needed --We made tea in the mornings! But the stove and microwave are fine for a vacation. No oven here. We ate every meal out because we wanted to try as many restaurants as possible. We walked or biked everywhere! (4 bikes in the garage and helmets and bike locks). We cut through the fort park at the end of the street to get to the downtown area...maybe a 7 minute walk. Thank God for the clothes washer and dryer downstairs (take the outdoor stairs to the little laundry room). That allowed us to pack light with only two carry-ons on our flight from Boston. We used the ceiling fans every night except two, when we turned on the air conditioning, which was pretty much silent operation. We saw the water from both sides of the porch! We spent mornings with tea at the bistro set on the porch. I spent one afternoon in one of the porch hammocks-- recovering from an afternoon of waffles! The only thing that needs to be "fixed" is that screens need to be added to the windows. Sandy, the groundskeeper, said they will be added very soon. And only two windows were able to be opened. You must visit The Gourmet Hut on Cuna St. for a delicious outdoor lunch or dinner in a quaint garden setting. There is entertainment some nights. Try the Prince of Wales for fish and chips. The Gypsy Cab Co. on Anastasia Island is great for lunch. Too many places to name here. Enjoy!

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.
