JUNIE'S HISTORIC LIGHTHOUSE COTTAGE

St. Augustine Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Charming Historic 2 Bedroom + Florida room, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Ideally located adjacent to The St. Augustine Lighthouse, and just steps away from The Fishing Pier, Salt Run State Park with walking or biking to sandy beaches plus a boat and kayak rental on the lagoon. The last Light Keeper built this cottage and it awaits your arrival, tucked away on an ancient Coquina dune in one of the last native hammocks, this lovely cottage sleeps four comfortably, with two bedrooms, and a large Jack and Jill bath. A roll-away bed is provided for extra guests. A full kitchen completely equipped and stocked with everything you will need for simple meal preparations. We also provide you with a pass to visit the Lighthouse and Museum as our guests while you visit, and you may use it as often as you like while you stay.

'The charm and peace of this place, has an 'old Forida' charm that cannot be found in condo settings'...Dwayne Lynch - Asheville, NC

The Garden is Private,complete with a natural fiber hammock, perfect for reading, but also a favorite for bird watching. The rookery and the Alligator farm are just across the way and the bird life is outstanding. Take a walk over the bridge to Historic Downtown St. Augustine to see the sights-about a half mile stroll, and say hello the the Dolphins for me.

Extended cable TV, Air-Conditioning and high-speed wireless internet all insure there is nothing to miss, but much to discover at this authentic, Historic Light keepers Cottage.

We'll leave the 'lighthouse' on for you!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Emili,

I just wanted to say thank you! We had a wonderful time in St. Augustine and in your (and Jill’s) cottage. It was so clean and comfortable and was the perfect place for us. While we were there we:

· Went to the beach (huge beaches!)

· Loved Stuart’s Market grocery store (fresh okra, great hot sauce and excellent hand made sausage)

· Enjoyed Mango Mangos at the beach

· Had fun in town and at the fort

· Enjoyed the alligator farm and the zip line

· The spectacular view from the lighthouse!!

· And enjoyed the sound of Dierks Bentley who was giving a concert the night we arrived at the amphitheater….faint but could hear.

It was really wonderful and the perfect way to start our spring break. We also discovered Marineland just down the road and had a wonderful dolphin experience (or two).

Thank you so much!!!

Peter and I discovered this cottage nestled in the woods in 2002. We learned that it was built by the last Lightkeeper ever stationed at the St Augustine Lighthouse. We loved the end of the road privacy and living in the shadow of the Lighthouse seems unbelievably romatic. Absolutely convinced that if peace on earth could be found we had found it. We bought it up and moved across the country to restore her and settle down to quiet small town living. We still enjoy many months of the year in St Augustine but also spend part of the year in California - earning a living. So until we retire once and for all we are happy to share our special cottage with visitors from all walks of life and from all over the world. The experience has been wonderful and we hope to share it with you! Peace on earth!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2002

We really enjoy living in the shadow of the Lighthouse. The list of activities at the Lighthouse and Museum is endless. Everything from Dark of the Moon tours to Stanley Steamer gatherings. We are Founding Light Members of the Lighthouse and Museum and our guests at the cottage are provided a free passes to enjoy the Lighthouse and Museum as our guest. We also enjoy and really take advantage of the Anastasia State Park with the Salt Run Lagoon, and the new Amphitheater. Our favorite beach is just a short walk along the Lagoon to the end where the sand dunes lead to the beach. The scenery, and bird life is world class, and the fishing is good too! We also enjoy a a walk to the Ancient City over the Bridge of Lions in the evenings. All in all the living is easy and good in St Augustine.

OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a great time with our dogs at Junie's Cottage. Quiet and private. After our adventurous day, we were able to relax in the nice shaded yard with the dogs. It is in a great location. We would love to stay here again.

A SPECIAL SPACE

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at your cottage. It was perfect!

There was something special about the space you created and a great location that made our visit one we all will remember for a long time.

We enjoyed the peace and calm of your cottage after a day wandering, and it was the perfect place for us to visit and reminisce.

Thank you for sharing your very special cottage with us

We hope to visit again!

ADORABLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in St.Augustine! This cottage was in a great location because it was a short ride to all the sites. It was right over the Bridge of Lions which is close to the Historic District (5 minute ride). Cottage was cozy and everything was so clean. Thank you for the lighthouse/museum passes too! Can't wait to visit St.Augustine again.

THIS IS A VERY HONEST OWNER.

  • 5 of 5
I e-mailed this owner to get information about walking. I lOVED the cottage and wanted to rent it in April, 2014 but I have difficulty walking long distances and the short walk over the bridge to historic S.A. worried me. Within 10 minutes of calling owner called me and we talked about the walk. being a former business owner, I really appreciate it when she advised me NOT to rent her cottage because the walk was too far. So anyone new to VRBO likes this property and wonders about the owner's honesty....don't worry you can trust her.

CHARMING COTTAGE, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
An absolutely charming step back in time. Very private, cozy and neat as can be. We Stayed in Junies cottage for 3 nights visiting during the Christmas season. This spot couldn't have been better. A nice walk across the bridge and your right in the Ancient City.
Every morning we took our coffee for a short walk to the pier. The yard was perfect for our little yorkie. The cottage is clean well equipped and spacious. It was a great stay, we'll be back!
