Open the gates to your private courtyard past the patio onto the sun deck and enter this charming Victorian apartment Casa de San Marcos that will accommodate up to 6. Up the stairs to the second level where it opens up to an open concept living / dining and kitchen area. The French doors lead onto the veranda. The spacious loft above looks down into the living area. The master bedroom is located in the rear of the apartment away from the action packed street.
The apartment shares this Victorian home with LuLi’s Cupcakes, which is located on the first floor!
Casa de San Marcos is located right in the middle of St. Augustines historic district. You’re just steps away from antique shopping, food, and all sorts of attractions. Within blocks is the Castillo de San Marcos, Ripleys Believe It Or Not, The Fountain of Youth, Francis Field events, The Old Jail, and much more.
This location is also close to fishing, with the Vilano Pier just a few minutes away. Plenty of places to put in your boat, or rent a charter. Crescent Beach lies to the south a few miles for those looking to relax on a quiet beach, or join the crowds on St. Augustine Beach. Plenty of choices!

We were looking for a unique place to stay with our family for an extended "history field trip." This darling little apartment was perfect for our family. We have four school-age children who fit just fine up in the cute loft and the master bedroom was a perfect retreat for us (mom & dad). The kitchen and bathroom were totally modern but the historic charm (windows, wood floors, balcony) remained. There were plenty of towels and kitchen necessities. The washer and dryer (though down the flight of stairs) were so helpful to have on site.
We walked EVERYWHERE from this location; it was so close to all the historic sites, shopping and restaurants. The bakery below was delightful and the cupcakes were delicious.
The rental agency was a pleasure to deal with and we highly recommend this property!!
This apartment was very clean, comfortable, and well-equipped with everything we needed (and more). The staff at the management company were super nice and helpful. It is located in a bustling area with antique and other shops adjacent and some restaurants within a couple minutes walk or less, such as the pizza place next door. Having said that, noise was not an issue at all. The veranda was a great place to relax and enjoy the weather with a book or newspaper. This is located in the Uptown area, so it's about a 15-minute walk to the downtown historic district. We took Uber each day though so it was easy....only about a 6-minute car ride in your car or by Uber with traffic. I have stayed in VRBO properties in various places in the US and around Europe and this was definitely a good one. If there was any slight negative, it would be that the loft area does get warm. The AC definitely cools it down but it makes it pretty chilly in the master bedroom downstairs. If you love AC though, this won't be a problem for you. Would definitely recommend this property!
We have never been to St. Augustine and wanted to stay in the city. Very happy with the location - we walked everywhere and never had a concern about where we would park. The apartment is nicely sized and comfortable - we sat on the veranda a lot enjoying the city life. Check in was simple and easy and communications from the property manager were clear.
My reason for not giving the property 5 stars is because it really needs a good hands and knees cleaning.
We spent three nights and would absolutely book again for a future visit to town.
Easy walk to the historic district and a number of restaurants. We really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony but didn't expect San Marco Ave to be so busy/noisy. As an older couple we probably would not return, because of the steep stairs going up to the apartment and also the very difficult spiral staircase leading up to the loft.
I loved staying here! The location was perfect and I really enjoyed walking the neighborhood and easily getting downtown. I especially liked Carrera Wine Cellar, located three blocks south of the apartment and offering wine classes and great wine. I liked the Rain Tree Restaurant, just two blocks north and Luli's Cupcake Shop is also wonderful! The apartment is full of character and very comfortable, and having the parking places is great. Marty and Cindy at First Choice Rental were extremely helpful and so informative about the area. I am already looking forward to my next visit!
