Just recently returning to the world of airbnb after a year of traveling ourselves, we are delighted to offer our sweet little cottage again. This fresh retreat makes for a beautiful address to call home whilst in St. Augustine. Close to the Historic Downtown district yet offering space and privacy in a neighborhood that's rich with it's own history and culture.
This cottage is a beautiful testimony to how we used to live. Kept to it's original size, we lovingly restored it and created a spacious feel within it's small square footage.
As you enter the cool living room, you will see the nicely proportioned master bedroom to your left. The master bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed, elegantly made up with soft and cool cotton sheets and a fresh white duvet. There is a small built-in wardrobe and a large vintage chest of drawers. Coming off of the bedroom is an office/reading room/ nursery, that boasts a beautiful bank of windows that give peeks of the world outside.
As you re-enter the living room, you will see two vintage rattan love-seats as well as an inviting lounge chair, draped in a luxurious sheepskin. Mid century modern lamps and retro decorations create a lovely little step back in time. Thanks to my husband and sons, this room also has a 34" smart TV and a music dock!
From the living room, an oversized hall leads to the lovely second bedroom. This room can be used for two adults or as a fabulous room for up to 3 kids. It contains a full bed, made up with cool crisp Ralph Lauren sheets. Over head is the single 'bunk' bed. Our guests have the option of having the single bed made available or having it 'stowed' in order to create a more open feeling. This little room also provides a little built-in wardrobe and a small chest of drawers.
Re-entering the hallway, you are met with a large glass paned door that leads to a wonderful outside deck. Here you can sit and eat dinner, have drinks with friends or have a bbq with your family. The deck gives access to the ample space that this little home enjoys and provides a fantastic place to watch the evening skies change and the birds as they fly overhead.
As you sweep back into the cottage you continue to the kitchen. This European inspired kitchen has all new appliances and is equipped for vacation style cooking. It has a sleek fridge, ample stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, kettle and all tea/coffee makings. There is also a small table and chairs which are just right for morning coffee and light eats...throw open the window for a minute and you'll feel as though you're in Europe somewhere!
From the kitchen is the access to the laundry/washroom and the bathroom and shower. Boasting a generous walk-in shower with over-head shower head and subway tiles. Lush towels and basic toiletries are included. Stored in the little sink cabinet are laundry detergent and dryer sheets, hair dryer, first aid kit, bug spray and extra paper supplies. Beach towels and chairs can also be found in this area.
We do provide all of the necessities to bbq and bikes are available upon request.

The cottage and surrounding area is for you to use. We do ask that you do not enter the airstream that is stored in the garden...thanks
This little cottage is situated next door to a house that has been in the same family for many generations. It is occupied by an elderly mother, her daughter and her son. The women are hardly ever outside but the son loves nothing more than to spend his days on the front porch and talk. He talks to the neighbors, he talks to passer-bys, he even talks to himself. He is interested in the fact that we have people come and stay here and he is not shy about saying hello!
My husband and I have been lucky enough to live in this neighborhood for 15 years. We have raised 3 boys here and we love and embrace the diversity that this neighborhood allows. We will be extremely sad when all of the local characters are living elsewhere as they are the disappearing remnants of another time and culture.
It is my utmost hope that you love staying at our cottage and so if any of the above said does not sit well with you, than we may not be the right choice.
This is a residential area, please be respectful of our neighbors at all times.
