Step into history in our Spanish-style mansion in the heart of historic downtown St. Augustine! Cordova Mansion is a magnificently opulent, immaculately appointed home with a large courtyard, unique heated pool and heated spa, second-floor balcony, spa, and so much more!<br/><br/>Every inch of this huge house is immaculately decorated and vibrantly beautiful, with pillow-edge travertine tiles, floor-length drapes, hardwood floors, skylights, and a warm-toned color scheme. You may have to spend the first hour or two pinching yourself to believe it's all real! Cordova Mansion is the perfect venue for a wedding party, family reunion, or vacation, sleeping up to 10 people in unbelievable luxury.<br/><br/>Before you explore the house, you might want to relax in the courtyard. Spacious and charming, this is probably destined to be your favorite area of Cordova Mansion. There's room for dining al fresco beneath a shady umbrella, sunbathing on a chaise lounge, and even dipping into the custom-built swimming pool, which features a fountain and underwater shelf for seating. You can hear the bustle of the city beyond the walls, but you're wonderfully private in this oasis of sunshine!<br/><br/>Step inside and you immediately feel cool and refreshed. The living room sets the tone for the house, with Oriental rugs, oversized furniture that is addictively comfortable, and a lovely fireplace. Despite the richness of its decoration, Cordova Mansion does not feel formal or stiff. You'll love the cool feel of tiles and wood on your feet after a long day of sightseeing, and look forward to curling up in the quiet beauty of this home.<br/><br/>The kitchen and dining area are modern, with a full-sized wine cooler just waiting for your favorite bottles, as well as all the latest appliances. Handsome wood cabinetry, granite countertops, and bright tile backsplashes invite you to linger in the kitchen, perhaps preparing fresh-caught seafood (or simply dishing up the takeout!). A breakfast bar with several stools encourages the gang to linger and chat with the cook before taking the feast into the dining room, where a long, polished table, chandelier, and nicely padded chairs make any meal elegant.<br/><br/>After dinner, retire to the media room for some world-class entertainment! Here you'll find a giant HDTV, DVD player, VCR, and some of the most comfortable couches in which to enjoy your favorite shows, movies, and music. And if you want to stay connected with the folks back home while you're here, bring your laptop or other electronics -- you have free wireless Internet at Cordova Mansion.<br/><br/>The luxury continues in the appointment of our 5 bedrooms and 3½ baths. Four of the bedrooms contain king beds; the fifth has a queen, and there is a queen hideaway bed as well for overflow! Master suites are found on both the first and second storey, and every bedroom is unique and beautiful -- absolutely unforgettable!<br/><br/>One master suite boasts a sky-blue ceiling, TV, carved bedframe, and Oriental rugs. It leads into the master bath, with his-and-her vanities, warm honey-colored tile, a shower, and a spa tub. Pamper yourself in this lovely, relaxing suite!<br/><br/>The other master suite also boasts a king-size bed and private bathroom, as well as access to the second-storey balcony that overlooks the sidewalk below. This beautiful space, set with windowboxes and casual seating, is lighted and covered, so it's comfortable any time of day or night. What a treat to watch the stars come out from the privacy of your own balcony, while the city hums below and around you!<br/><br/>Staying at Cordova Mansion is a truly unforgettable experience. Everything is provided for you here -- all linens and towels; all kitchen cookware, dishes, and utensils -- and our laundry room is at your disposal, so you can pack light. From the little painted details on the pillars to the artwork on the walls, you will be continuously surprised and delighted by this house! So come enjoy the beauty and history of St. Augustine from the inside out by staying in this exceptional home
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
We experienced a wonderful Christmas week at the mansion. The house was so comfortable for the whole family. Location in the heart of St. Augustine could not be better!
The Cordova Mansion was a PERFECT venue for my wedding! We LOVED the house, it fit 10 of us very comfortably. The weather was beautiful and we kept the doors open to the courtyard the entire stay. The location could not have been more perfect, more than enough parking was accessible to those of our guests that did need to park across the street, but most people were able to walk, as it is literally in the center of the historic district. Lynda was extremely helpful in making sure we had everything we needed and every question answered! The Cordova Mansion is my new dream home!
We had a ton of fun staying at the Cordova Mansion. The location is great. The pool was great for the kids.
Our families had a awesome stay over the easterbreak, everything we expected and more!
We loved the Cordova Mansion my only complaint was the pool heater wasn't working and that was that main reason we picked it so if the weather was cool and it was we could still use the pool. All of the promotions on your website promote that it has a heated pool. I will say that on the 3rd day they finally got it fixed. Other than that everything was great.
We rented the Cordova Mansion to entertain family and friends attending my daughter's wedding in Orange Park. I must admit, initially I didn't think I would like the place, but once I entered the premises, I fell in love with it. It was a great place to relax and entertain during our stay. My favorite place in the house was the kitchen and master suite.<br/>Staying in St. Augustine was not only beautiful but educational for my family. <br/>We did have a few issues; televisions were <br/>not working, dining room chair broke, wobbley furniture in one of the guest rooms, and the jacuzzi didn't work.<br/>I contacted guest services and they were very friendly, but we were very disappointed that the jacuzzi didn't work the entire week. We were also glad no one got hurt when the chair collapsed. <br/>I think the mansion needs to be regularly maintained, should have some upgrades on furniture, and needs a television in every room. This would have made our stay more enjoyable.
