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.

COZY, CLEAN, MODERN, AND WELL STOCKED

  • 5 of 5
First impression when I drove into the rocky driveway was "Wow! This is the nicest whimsical looking cottage ever!" It's a hidden gem unlike any of the other surrounding properties. Upon entrance, you can feel a sense of calm and peace. A very open floor plan that is not too large but perfect for invoking that cozy cottage feel. I loved the modern kitchen area that was open to the living room and dining area. It was well stocked with everything except aluminum foil and ziploc bags...not a negative, but making a point of how well stocked this place is with everything you need to eliminate any worries that you forgot something. The washer and dryer closet is stocked with detergent and dryer sheets. Beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms had the bear necessities, but bring your own toilet paper in case what is there runs out since there was none stocked in the supply room. Parking in the downtown area is very difficult to find, so be forewarned. That is where the bikes in the shed came in handy. It was great to stroll through the area unhampered. The cottage is about 15 minutes walking distance if you don't want to ride the bike or drive. We stood three nights and it wasn't enough. There is just too much to see and do in St. Augustine. Museum prices are reasonable and were great to visit when it rained on our last night. We enjoyed eating at Pizally on St. George Street each night. Their pizza is pretty good, as is there pastas, cheesy half moons, and selection of wines. End the night with dessert at Kilwan's. I regret not doing the trolley tour. It stops at all the sights and allows you to get off and back on throughout the day. It's worth spending to do that. We barely spent enough time at the cottage, but it was great to come back to unwind and get a good nights sleep. I'm looking forward to returning next year!

FUN LITTLE COTTAGE.

  • 5 of 5
Very enjoyable vacation home-comfortable and well equipped. The cottage is located in an easy walking area. The fenced in yard for my little dog is a bonus. The close proximity to downtown and the college is great. I attended several lectures and events at the college and became familiar with many local folks.

WONDERFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Christian's Keep for one week, the end of August. It was my husband and I, our 19 year old granddaughter and my 88 year old Mother, oh, and of course our dog!! We found the home to be very clean, very well equipped, very well maintained, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. It is in a quiet area, with lots of trees to make you feel like you are out in the woods, still it is close enough to town that you can drive in to St.George Street in only a few minutes. The owners were very nice, and we were happy to have had the chance to get to meet them face to face the day before we "moved in". I would certainly recommend Christian's Keep to others! It's a Great place to stay in St.Augustine!!
