Overview

St. Augustine Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6 - a fully equipped renovated bungalow

Christian’s Keep is a quaint, comfortable bungalow in the historic Lincolnville District of St. Augustine. Originally built in 1930, and fully renovated in 2007 by Christian Voelkel, Christian’s Keep provides a great respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – nothing can beat the serenity and charm of this quiet neighborhood. Just a short distance (3/4 mile) to museums, shops, and restaurants on Saint George Street, our bungalow is convenient yet out-of-the-way enough to offer all the peace and quiet you need in a vacation getaway.

The practical three bedroom, 2 bath floor plan accommodates up to six overnight guests. The spacious living area, kitchen, and dining area provide a comfy 'home base' for you during your visit to St. Augustine – our nation’s oldest city.

Bedrooms: The practical 3 bedroom, 2 bath floor plan accommodates up to six overnight guests. The spacious living area, kitchen, and dining area provide a comfy 'home base' for you during your visit to St. Augustine – our nation’s oldest city.

The master suite is well equipped with a queen bed, a cozy reading area with a rocking chair and antique table, an inviting bathroom just through the double French doors, and a large tiled shower. The bedroom opens onto the back deck.

An antique double bed with a comfortable pillow-top mattress is the centerpiece of the guest bedroom. This room also has a large chest of drawers, bedside tables, and reading lamps.

The third 'bedroom' contains a futon which opens into a full size (double) bed. This room can double as a separate 'playroom' for children.

Kitchen & Living Areas: The modern kitchen is fully equipped, providing you the opportunity to cook meals on-site, rather than having to spend lots of money going out for all of your meals. A large Charmglow gas grill is located on the back deck for grilling your favorite steak, fish, or whatever the chef has in mind.

The dining area seats four and the table can be pulled out to comfortably seat 6. Extra chairs are available in the antique drop-leaf game table in the large entry hallway.

Christian’s Keep also has a full sized washer and dryer located in the laundry area – we provide all of the comforts of home! Why settle for just a hotel or a 'bed and breakfast inn'?

Come Immerse yourself in southern charm in your own historic cottage on Twine Street.

About John and Susan

We are empty-nesters who like to have a place to get away that is not too far from home. Historic St. Augustine is such a quaint town, and we fell in love with it the first time we visited with our kids over 20 years ago.

John and Susan purchased this cottage in 1996

Why John and Susan chose St. Augustine

We love the downtown St. Augustine historic area, and Christian's Keep is uniquely situated on a street which has many restored homes.

What makes this cottage unique

The way this home sits on the property affords ample off street parking for 3 to 4 cars, which is rare in downtown! It is perfect for wedding parties, or families arriving in separate cars.

Christian's Keep is also dog friendly, and we have a fully fenced back yard!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cousin's Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Christian's Keep was warm and cozy, clean, well equipped with all items needed to make our stay delightful. Would definitely recommend this cute cottage to others and will be returning. The location was very accessible. We enjoyed the Trolley Tour, St. Augustine Distillery Tour, the food was fantastic, the Ghost Tour and just the beauty of the city.

Charming Cottage Close to all the sites!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here. We stayed over our Christmas vacation and had as good of a time as our first stay. The cottage is cozy but spacious and has every amenity you could ask for. We love staying here and hope to stay here every trip if it's available. Thanks!

Perfect quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect little getaway in Beautiful St. Augustine. Home was well stocked with all the essentials making it perfect for cooking and relaxing. It was very clean and updated. The home is walking distance to all the highlights of the city. So we got some great exercise and we saved lots on parking fees. Hope to visit again in the future. We highly recommend this home away from home.

My family loved staying at Christian's Keep

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved staying at Christian's Keep. Our little dog loved the freedom of the leafy fenced-in backyard. The house has a wonderful feeling of calm and peacefulness. And it was so well-stocked with paper products and detergents, what a nice feature! The beds are soft and comfortable. It's just a lovely, cozy place to come home to. We plan on returning, sooner than later I hope.

nice peaceful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I arrived around 930 pm, after a long workday and almost 5 hours drive. As I entered the house I felt like coming to my own house, the lighthouse decoration was awesome as I had decorated my house and office with lighthouses. House is clean and welcoming.

Communication was nice. Thanks

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this charming little house in the historic Lincolnville section of St. Augustine for a week. We ended up going to the beach at the Anastasia State Park most days and thought it was just lovely. We loved being so close to the town center and still have just a short drive to the beach. The house itself is beautifully renovated, comfortably furnished and very well equipped. Highly recommended!
