About Candy Thomas

I grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, north of St. Augustine. SA always seemed like a magical place to me then and I loved going there for the beaches and sightseeing. I moved to Atlanta to attend school and build a career. SA became the part of Florida I always returned. It is my favorite place to spend time, and I look forward to making SA Florida my residence in the future. I was right, as a child: St. Augustine is magical!

Candy Thomas purchased this house in 2003

Why Candy Thomas chose St. Augustine

This home has been a favorite of mine for 20 years. I had the opportunity to purchase it in 2004 and could not resist. The location is perfect for a visit to St. Augustine. It is located in the historic district, but just a block or two from the traffic area. The drive over to the beach is a breeze... It is beautiful. It is comfortable and homey. I always hate to leave.

What makes this house unique

I often park my car and not use it for days. It is convenient to everything. The beauty of the huge oak trees still blows me away. The sound of the church bells from Memorial Presbyterian, two blocks away, is a delight. I love early evening strolls through downtown. It is as if you have escaped to another centuray. The architecture is stunning.

St Augustine home

  • 2 of 5
Last year we gave a 5 star review to this property; this year our stay was much different--difficulty with the alarm system that had no instructions (we're glad the police/fire didn't show up0, electrical outlet problems, light broken over sink, poorly functioning faucet in kitchen, and the worst--a leaking DampRid bag in the closet that ruined a pair of my shoes which I still have not received compensation for from the owner. This property has a great location and is on a quiet street, but it is old and does need updating. We are sorry our experience was less than optimal, but got no satisfaction from the owner when we contacted her within a few days of arriving for our month-long stay regarding problems.

Owner's Response: Bad reviews are hard to hear, but often very helpful. The electrical problem mentioned was a GFCI switch, once reset, the socket and light over the sink worked. The sink in the kitchen was making a noise because of minerals from the water clogging the faucet head. That has been cleaned out and the noise is gone. The alarm was not hooked up so I was very surprised it went off, but found a way to disarm if that happens again. A code to disarm is now in the information packet for the house. The DampRid bag in the closet, I was unable to make leak. I strive to respond to my guests when they call or e-mail. I am happy that many of my guests are return guests, and strive to keep it that way.

I stayed here with my fiancee and our puppy. Candy was very easy to work with and very accomodating. The property is beautiful and the pictures don't do the house justice. Cute older interior and very clean. Great backyard too. You really can't beat the location. Downtown St. Augustine is just a few blocks away. We hope that some of our family can stay here when we get married in St Augustine next January!

Owner's Response: Daniel, thank you for your great review. And mostly, congratulations on your upcoming wedding in St. Augustine. It shows that you love the town, and I think it is the best and most romantic place for a wedding. Best wishes to you and your fiance, and, of course, your puppy.

Great location and value!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here 9/13-16/12 for a girls' weekend. We rarely used our car, it was so convenient to downtown. We had plenty of room for the four of us and as long as we timed our showers, we were fine. There were plenty of other areas to get ready. The large bedroom has a huge dresser with a large mirror that we would use, too. The air conditioning worked great, but the controls were a bit hidden in the dining room. We kept adjusting the wrong one and wondered why it didn't get cool, lol. We should have called Candy. We did have a problem with the Internet, but Candy did find us a fix. She was very responsive to our needs. All the tvs were very nice and had DVD players in them. We rented from redbox and enjoyed them in the very comfortable living room. The kitchen is very well stocked. Overall, this is a great value in a great location. It isn't all modern and fancy, but it is very clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Candy!

Notes This house has off street parking, which is a great advantage in the Historic District. The driveway is along side the house, and stops at the gate to the back yard. Please be mindful that this driveway is narrow. It was originally used for horse and carriage. There is a pipe that sticks out from the house near the gate. Please watch for this so that you don't hit it with your car.
Payment can be made by check or through PayPal. A 3 % fee will be added to total to cover the PayPal charge. Deposits are non-refundable. If you must cancel your reservation, we will work with you on another reservation date. Balance is due on or before 30 days prior to check in.
