EMILI'S HISTORIC LIGHTHOUSE KEEPERS COTTAGE

St. Augustine Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This cottage was built in or about 1942 by the last Light keeper stationed at St Augustine. Our cottage faces east and is attached to the Lighthouse property on the north side of the property. Situated on an ancient coquina dune we occupy the same high ground that the Lighthouse does. Across the street and past the tennis courts is the Salt Run Lagoon where you may fish, canoe, kayak, sail or head out to the open ocean. The state park is a short walk but if you walk in the opposite direction you will find yourself at the Bridge of Lions and downtown St Augustine. Everywhere you look are gardens, flowers, history, and birds birds birds. The cottage has a large front deck for outdoor dining and general enjoyment of nature. Inside are, two bedrooms two baths a gourmet kitchen and wrap-around Florida room. Wood floors throughout and an authentic feel of Florida's rich maritime history. We provide everything you need to be comfortable and to function for a long visit or a brief one. For more information visit our website listed below.

Peter and I found this cottage while visiting St Augustine in 2002. We were completely enchanted by the setting beneath the Lighthouse. Our decision was cinched when we learned the home was built by the last Lightkeeper stationed in St Augustine. We began our restoration and finished just in time for Peter to be asked back to California for his work. We are able to spend part of the year at the cottage and really enjoy welcoming our guests the rest of the time. We have welcomed people from all walks of life and from far and near. We hope we will one day welcome you too!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2002

I mentioned briefly that we were excited about the idea of living next to the Lighthouse. As it turns out - the good people there are the best neighbors you can hope for. The Lighthouse sits on about 9 beautifully kept acres. We enjoy walking over and saying hello to the volunteers and staff whenever we are in town. Where else can you go where everyone is smiling and looking skyward. I strongly urge anyone who visits St Augustine to stop in to the Lighthouse and Museum and see what they are doing for the preservation of our maritime history. They have boat building programs and launches, treasure hunts, serious science and festivals. If you want to see the most spectacular views from the sea to The Ancient City this the way to do it only 219 steps. We love it. The Salt Run lagoon is another alluring feature, with a fishing pier, boat let-in, the boat moorings, all very peaceful. The water birds are just astounding.

Great Place to Ring-In 2014!

This house was a perfect getaway for the New Year. Was thrilled to find a rental that accepted dogs. Owner had great communications every step of the way and could not have been more pleasant to deal with. House was exactly as pictured and very clean and comfortable with amenities including fully stocked kitchen pans, dishes, utensils; flat screen tv, wi-fi, washer/dryer, etc. An ideal location just a short drive from Historic Old Town but in a quaint arty neighborhood directly adjacent to lighthouse (free guest pass provided) and short walk to state park. Would highly recommend.

My mini vacation

This cottage was a perfect home away from home while exploring the St. Augustine area. Although we were on the run most of the time we were there it was so nice to come back to the cottage rather than a hotel room. It exceeded my expectations and am so glad that I found it. I would recommend this place to anybody and would come back again. Very nice location and a very quiet area. A definite perk that you can visit the museum and lighthouse as part of the package. We climbed the lighthouse twice as the first attempt it was so foggy we could not see anything. Thank you for a wonderful mini vacation home!

From the moment we walked in, we felt "at home", very comfortable. Everything was either a short walk or short drive away - very convenient location. Enjoyed having our coffee on the patio in the morning & then walking to the Lighthouse and the pier. Would definitely rent the cottage again on a return visit or recommend it to family & friends.

Delightful time

What an awesome time we had staying at Emili’s Lightkeeper’s Cottage. My husband’s parents lived in this same house from 1963 til 1970. We had so much fun going back in time with memories of the enjoyable times we had while they lived in St. Augustine. Our two grown children and spouses went too so we recreated pictures from 1967 taken on the steps of the house. Steps still the same, children are 46 years older. The house still has the same charm and ambience, even with the wonderful updating and addition. The hardwood floor and ole claw foot tub brought for a lot of discussion. My husband’s brother, wife and son w/spouse joined us for a couple of days. Their first home was the downstairs apartment (Junie’s) and that is where they brought their first son home too. They will celebrate 50 years of marriage this year. Such a trip back in time for them. Thank you so much Emili for offering this cottage as VRBO. My mother-in-law is no longer living, but would be delighted to know that it is being enjoyed by others.
The cottage has everything you have at home or need for your stay while away from home. The owners make special efforts to make sure you are comfortable. The free lighthouse passes are just added treats !! A JEWEL of a vacation for our family.

My wife and I wanted a mini vacation and she found this cottage on VRBO. We were happy to see they accepted pets and so we went. We really enjoyed our 5 night stay and the location is very close to the historic area of St. Augustine. The cottage provided all the basics and was ready as promised on arrival. I will say that regarding the photos all were accurate except the outside, their was quite a bit of mildew growth on the deck and chairs, which is common in Florida summers, I'm sure the owner will be taking care of that soon. Over all we loved the cottage and would definitely return in the future.
