St. Augustine House Rental Photos and Description

Main House, 5 sleeping areas + Attached Units, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-18)

The Oviedo House offers convenient lodging close to Historic downtown St. Augustine, Flagler College. It is a great house for wedding groups, family reunions, vacation get aways or even business stays. Rates listed are for the main house only which sleeps up to 10. There are 2 suites that can be added for larger groups and are discounted when booked with the main house. Call for additional costs for the suites.

To help you know how Oviedo House is set up, there is a floor plan in the photo section. It is a very comfortable house for large groups.

The house was built around 1910 as a rooming house for nurses of Florida East Coast Hospital, located two blocks from Flagler College, six blocks from Historic downtown, one-half mile from the White Room and just a few miles from great shopping and the beach. It has been completely remodeled with care to offer new amenities yet keep all its original charm!

The Oviedo House is the best St. Augustine vacation rental for medium sized groups near all of St. Augustine's top attractions and things to do. This home is great for wedding groups or family reunions. Whether on business or pleasure, this house will definitely be able to meet all your traveling needs and more! You can go directly to oviedo house to see additional information.

Dakota Suite & West Wing: We have just remodeled 2 small apartments on the second floor that have been used for the family. They can be opened up to the Oviedo House to accommodate larger groups. Each suite is equipped to sleep up to 4 people and have a separate entrance, their own wrap around porch, and are full service units all by themselves. Check out the pictures! For those interested in also booking the Dakota Suite or West Wing, please check availability and additional costs.

About Kitty Pursley

Oviedo House is not the typical 'Vacation Rental'. This is the house that a large family grew up in and we want to keep it in the family. The picture was taken a couple of years ago and has all 7 children with our mother. We have moved all over the country (Seattle, California, Kansas, and Florida - but not St. Augustine) and still come home to St. Augustine to spend time. Now our kids, who have kids of their own, also come and enjoy all the things to do in St. Augustine. Mostly we just love to come home. The house is filled with so many memories.

Kitty Pursley purchased this house in 1956

Why Kitty Pursley chose St. Augustine

Oviedo House is our family home and not the typical 'vacation rental' bought as an investment. As we moved on with our lives we wanted to keep the house in the family and left the house with most of the items we grew up with. It has a real 'home' feeling when you walk in. Our picture wall in the hall way has many generations and you can get a sense of the closeness our family has for each other and Oviedo House.

What makes this house unique

We strive to make our guests stay as comfortable as we can. If there are any specifics that you would like, we try and make it happen...Special things for birthdays, weddings, etc. With the addition of the 'Dakota Suite' & 'West Wing', the house is big enough to have 18 people comfortably enjoy the house or can be split up for from 4 in each Suite and up to 10 in the main house. Even though Oviedo House is a large home, it is even very comfortable for just 2 people. We have everything you need to keep working or in touch with everyone. The house has an up-to-date computer, fax, copier, printer, and is equipped for wireless with high speed cable. It is close to the historic district and one can walk most anywhere they want and it is a very safe neighborhood.

Come enjoy our house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to thank you for an incredible experience at the Oviedo House...my daughter's bridal brunch was wonderful and everyone was impressed with the house, the furnishings and the overall experience. You had so many items that I was able to use in the set-up and I had many flashbacks to my childhood growing up in New Orleans in an old southern home. My husband usually has no opinion on places where we stay but he also loved the house and is now making comments about looking for property in Saint Augustine for part of our retirement--if the Oveido House experience can get my New York husband to consider living in the south then it is truly a magical place! Thank you again for your hospitality. Janette Johnson

Wonderful stay near historic St. Augustine

  • 5 of 5

The Oviedo house is perfect! We were there for a family wedding weekend and shared the house with some of our closest friends and couples. It is conveniently located to the historic downtown area of St. Augustine & it was less than 5 minutes from the Casa Monica Hotel; where the reception was. Very clean, cozy and hospitable. I would highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. One of the great things about Oviedo House is how close it is to so many things. You can walk downtown in just a few minutes. Glad you had a wonderful time and hope you think of us in the future. Kitty

40th birthday

  • 5 of 5

9 adults and 5 children under the age of 7, gathered at the Oviedo House and the West Wing suite to celebrate our sons 40th birthday! The house was spacious where we could be in our own space when we needed to and even with young children, was relatively quiet. The large kitchen accomodated all of us, with everything we could possibly need, even a fully stocked pantry and spices! We especially enjoyed having a gas grill in the yard to make hot dogs and burgers. Thank you Kitty for providing 2 pack n play cribs and a stroller...they sure came in handy!

The location to the downtown historic district was just what our son wanted. We walked or took a trolly ride to all the sites, restaurants and bars. We had a wonderful time in St. Augustine and at the Oviedo House and would definitely choose to stay there again and recommend it highly!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time with your celebration. It is hard to explain how much room the Oviedo House has and that it can accommodate a large group without being crowded. You explained that well. Thank you. I think reviews always help others looking for someplace to stay and wonder what it is like. Thanks, Kitty

Halloween Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family vacation over Halloweed at Oviedo House. Ages stretched from 3 to 60 and we all loved it. My daughter in law commented that as nicely as the house was appointed and as well stocked as all areas were with supplies, you could come and not leave for days. Thanks for making us feel at home, even on vacation. The location is within walking distance from many sites and restaurants.

Great for families!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Oviedo house for our annual family vacation. We had ages from 82 to 30 and everyone loved it!!! We stayed in the main house; there was so much room where we all good hang out together. One night we did a low country boil and the back yard and porch were perfect for that. We enjoyed a lot of laughter and made some wonderful memories during our stay. We loved....loved......loved the bikes; that was a great way to get around St. Augustine!!! Kitty and Terry were very gracious and eagerly helped with any questions we had. Thank you Kitty for sharing your beautiful home with us!!!!

Owner's Response: So glad your stay was a great one! It is fun to share our home with others and help memories be made. We love offering the bicycles because it is so easy to ride around St. Augustine. Probably time to update a couple though. Hope you think of us again in the future. Kitty

Great for large families who need their own space!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the Oviedo House (and Dakota Suite and West Wing) for our son's wedding at the White Room in St. Augustine and it was absolutely perfect!! The pictures do not capture the comfort you feel here...it is definitely a HOME, not just a house (and a clean one!). Kitty and Terry were helpful from start to finish and met all of our needs. It was so well stocked, we felt like we were at one of our own homes (cooking utensils, coffee, spices, crockpot, etc.) you name it - it was there! They had multiple computers and printers to use, as well as free wi-fi and games...the list goes on and on.

We truly only needed to bring a toothbrush and our clothing! We had six couples, two teenagers and a single individual, and we never felt cramped at all (lots of bathrooms, too). If you wanted privacy, you could retire to your room; if you wanted fellowship, there were large gathering areas in the kitchen, the living room, and TWO HUGE PORCHES!

We found a great little diner at the end of the road that had an AWESOME breakfast (Georgie's?). There was also a convenience store/gas station less than two blocks away that was more like a mini grocery store (even had fresh fruit). As mentioned in other reviews, the heart of the historic district is just a short walk from the house. One of the few places we actually drove to was the Conch House, which is where we held the Rehearsal Dinner (on the water). It had amazing food and a great atmosphere - we highly recommend you eat lunch or dinner there under the tiki huts if you have a chance.

If you are hesitant or unsure if this is the place to get, stop worrying and book it today...you won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I sometimes forget to let the potential guests know how convenient the Oviedo House is and how well stocked it is, and you said it so well. I know reviews like this help others feel more comfortable when they are booking a house "sight unseen". It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and hope to hear from you in the future. We are also putting a video of the house on the web so others can get a better feel for the house. We have it on our personal site and will soon add it to VRBO. Kitty
