Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, Sleeps 2-4

We fell in love with this enchanting cottage because of its vintage quality and location. It is a sweet old cottage that we have totally renovated. You walk out the door and within steps you are at the sea.

This is an old fashioned 1930's beach cottage with lots of privacy as it is totally fenced in. We've hired a talented gardener/ designer who uses Florida native beach flowers and grasses to create a casual shore setting.

Come and relax at our 1930’s totally renovated cottage by the sea. We've decorated it with charming vintage finds. Including chandeliers that light up the patio area at night creating a magical setting for romance and family fun.

We love sitting on the deck at night feeling the breezes off the ocean.

Immerse yourself in the world of Old Florida, the way it used to be. Grab your coffee and watch the miracle of a sunrise as the dolphins play and the pelicans fly overhead. Sometimes you will see a couple of the locals fishing and it's fun to check if they "got lucky" yet. It's so peaceful walking along our quiet beach to the inlet where you can see the old St Augustine lighthouse on the other shore and other historical sites.

Many activities are available at the beach...parasailing, fishing, kayaking, boating. Why not sail on the pirate ship “Black Raven' If you sail on Wednesday it docks at Aunt Kate’s restaurant for a delicious seafood dinner. We also love walking to our favorite local restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. (We’ll leave you a list). You can walk to our beautiful pier (you can fish from it) too.

Feel like visiting the 16th century? A short ride over the bridge and you are in ancient St. Augustine. The oldest settlement and fort in the USA.

Explore the historical sites and enjoy the family owned restaurants. Take a tour. Either a trolley or a romantic horse and carriage ride.

Fall asleep to the sound of the surf and the swaying palm trees in our hammock on the deck. Yes you can see the ocean from the deck.

Enjoy!

Why Carolyn Covert chose Saint Augustine

We rented a cottage in the area and fell in love with the location. I had always dreamed of having a cottage by the sea where we could grab our coffees, walk the beach and watch the sunrise.

The charming quaint cottages and the quietness of the area are so relaxing. There is a beautiful nature walk across the street.

Having the ancient city of St Augustine so close by makes the location perfect. Interesting restaurants and beautiful architecture just make it a dream location. St. Augustine is a very magical city. Take a horse and carriage ride!

We love and use the cottage whenever we can.

I like to think of our guests as friends, who are enjoying our cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

In addition to being less than 10 minutes from the ancient city, you can walk to at least 3 good restaurants and our local supermarket, Publix.

A short walk down the beach or down the road from the cottage and you will find a wonderful breakfast/lunch cafe.

A wonderful way to end the day is sitting on the deck, high in the palm trees, feeling the ocean breeze. You can see a little bit of the ocean!

cute, clean, cozy

  • 5 of 5

I had an extended stay here and really enjoyed it. I was very comfortable, within steps to the beach, and the cottage was stocked with everything I needed even for a few months. I'd definitely recommend it!

Great place to get away from it all!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week at the cottage- loved everything about it- especially the reading nook. We often found ourselves all sitting in there (2 adults & 2 kids) just chatting The walk to the beach is very short- and it is gorgeous first thing in the morning. The slope of the beach is steep there- causes waves to break right up onto the sand... so if you want to surf or board you will want to walk north up the beach a bit to where it is a more gradual slope.

The convenience of walking to the grocery store was great- we cooked most of our meals... and headed into St Augustine for one night out.

We would love to return- and spend more time on the hammock under the stars!

My wife and I can brag but the best thing is rent this cottage and you will see what we mean. Everything and I mean everything was perfect. Just a great place and what else can you ask for. If you have a bad time their then you did something wrong. We will be using this cottage again. Ray & Cerethia Houston TX.

Small Cottage perfect for couple

  • 5 of 5

Second time we stayed, we love the convenient location. Close to the beach, Publix and Puccini's Pizzeria. Beach near the cottage is not crowded, so we can set up chairs in the morning and go to and from the cottage all day.
