About John and Pat O'Brien

We moved to St. Augustine North City area in 2005 from Point Lookout, NY after friends of ours moved here and introduced us to this wonderful place. We searched for a double lot near the beach where we could build a fabulous home for us and a unique vacation rental next door. We wanted to live next to our rental so we could be available to our guests if needed yet private for us and our guests. After 1 1/2 years of designing and building we accomplished our goal and hope you love St. Augustine beach and our house as much as we do.

John and Pat O'Brien purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

We love the location because you can walk to restaurants and hear the ocean from the house. We like that our beach is on the side of the beach where cars are not allowed. We are on a quiet street yet close to activities, restaurants, sightseeing, shopping. It offers the best of everything. We wanted the metal roof and blown-in insulation to make the house energy efficient and we added a hybrid water heater for the same reason. We built the guest house as though it was for ourselves and didn't skimp on the extras.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved being so close to the beach and look forward to another visit!

This property a real gem!

We loved the location and appreciated the cleanliness of the home.

  • 5 of 5

The O'Briens were very helpful in our phone conversations prior to arrival. The home is an excellent location---within 2 minutes of the beach and close to stores and church. The living, dining area and bedrooms were all comfortable spaces. Lighting in the first bedroom could be improved, but overall we were very pleased. If we're ever back in the area, we would definitely try to stay here.

Clean, quite, plenty of room, and near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our small family of three. It was quite and a short walk to the beach and restaurants. We hardly needed to drive with all the options to eat nearby. The house was clean and modern. There were beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels provided so we didn’t need to bring any of these. We had a small baby so having the washer and dryer was a nice feature also. Beds were comfortable and had a nice bathroom. Would love to stay here again and recommend

Beautiful cottage, great layout and beautiful furnishings and decor.

  • 5 of 5

this carriage house apartment was a perfect getaway for us. I'm a luxury home builder and my wife is a decorator in NC and we rarely find a place so perfectly decorated and furnished. Very upscale yet still comfortable & coastal feeling. Conveniently located among a few cafe's etc and pretty close to the historic part of St. Augustine. The owners were very pleasant to work with. Highly recommend this place!

This beautiful private two bedroom carriage house comes with all the amenities you might need to get away from it all. It is on a quiet street just 150' from a beautiful white sand beach where you can swim, surf and walk for miles. Walk to a number of bar/restaurants, bicycle rentals, surf shop. Nearby is St. Augustine Amphitheatre showcasing top band concerts and special events year-round including farmers market every Saturday. Visit the Pier that offers a farmer's market every Wednesday and has volleyball courts and a pavilion where free events are held. Enjoy 'Music by the Sea' free concerts in the summer season with local restaurants serving fair priced food. Bring your chair and cooler (alcohol permitted) for a fun night! Visit the historic city 4 miles away. The Alligator Farm and the Lighthouse are spots you might enjoy. In St. Augustine you can kick back and relax or spend your days sightseeing and busy with activities sun up to sun down. We recommend taking the sightseeing trolley downtown to learn all about the history of the oldest city and you can get on and get off at various stops.
