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.

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 ...

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in October at the Carriage House like we did last year. We had a wonderful time. The Carriage House was so clean, thank you Larry and for all your information. The bed was so comfortable, the linens were high quality, everything we needed was provided. The dock was wonderful. This time we seen 2 porpoises swimming, that was exciting. It is such a quiet and peaceful location. The perfect place to relax. Greg it was so good to see you again, you and Linda are the best. Looking forward to coming back. Lou Ann

Great little spot

  • 5 of 5

We escaped to St. Augustine for our anniversary, we wanted something small and cozy with character in a central location, this fit the bill on all counts. The king size bed is super comfy, the sheets and towels extra nice and Larry, the caretaker for the Main house very friendly. St. Augustine is still recovering form Hurricane Matthew and we saw signs of destruction everywhere but the city is cleaning up and business is getting back to normal. Everyone was friendly, restaurants, shops, it's just a great place to visit. We were able to tour the Main house at 80 Water Street which will be a wonderful place to stay as well. I used the bicycles to cruise around the city, we walked to Dinner one night, sat on the porch for breakfast and in the little garden with a glass of wine in the evening. We really could not have asked for more, did I mention the sun shined for our three day escape! We were very happy and miss the lovely temperatures now that we are home. We will definitely return. 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.
