Surpassed our Expectations

We enjoyed a wonderful winter getaway at this charming property. We have rented homes twice in the Bahamas and France, and found Seafarer's Bungalow to be outfitted the best of all. The descriptions are accurate, and everything was comfortable and clean. It is rare to find a kitchen so ready for guests to prepare meals.

We enjoyed the front porch, and looked forward to seeing the horses and carriages passing by, and the driver waving hello and tipping his hat. The back patio is comfortable and private.

The walk downtown is about 15 minutes and there are several routes to take. We purchased bicycles and enjoyed touring the neighbourhood and also going into town. The tourist centre is a great place to leave bicycles while lunching or strolling along George St.

Our favourite place to eat was Nona's Italian restaurant on Avila St. Also, Mojo's BBQ has a very pleasant less crowded patio at the rear of the restaurant and we enjoyed that as well. There are several galleries worth visiting as well.

Brigid is professional and easy to work with. We stayed at the bungalow for eight weeks, and she made us feel welcome to contact her ask for any information about the city and to check that we were happy with everything.

We will definitely recommend this home to friends and relatives.

Charming Historic Jewel

I cannot say enough good things about this home. My husband and I felt the warmth and welcoming the moment we stepped in the door. All the creature comforts combined with nautical themed treasures, antiques, history, comfortable bedding, fine linens, exquisitely appointed kitchen for cooking, and wonderful nooks and crannies throughout the home to stretch out and find some space to read and relax, made this a very Cozy Christmas. Easy walk to downtown and numerous restaurants, our favorite, "Olde City House" where we enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner. The nearby lake, Maria Sanchez, is a treasure trove of aquatic wildlife,photo opportunities and has a nice walkway to appreciate the local architecture along the lake.
I spent ample time on the front porch and back patio and enjoying the outdoor gardens at this home, and am eager to return again, because a week simply wasn't long enough. I've rented beach homes in the past in Vilano and St. Augustine, and honestly, I'd trade the surf for the comfort and charm of the Seafarer's Bungalow. Beautifully decorated, and carefully crafted to convey the seafaring history of St. Augustine, this one is a Jewel, and reasonably priced.

Charming, Comfy, Clean

The Seafarer's Bungalow is the most charming vacation rental we have ever stayed at. The house is full of unique character, but still maintains a warm, comfy vibe. It is very clean and well maintained from the towels and bedding to the cups in the cabinets. The bungalow is has modern, but classic feel... for example, there is a brand new shower (with amazing water pressure) in one bathroom and the original 1920s bathtub in the other. You will find unique model sailboats and maritime decorations throughout the house.

Fully stocked kitchen had all the utensils we needed to cook our freshly caught fish. We enjoyed meals on the front porch, dining room, and back patio.

Great location! The neighborhood is quiet, safe, full of trees, and a short walk to downtown and waterfront. We left the car at the house on several occasions and walked to nearby restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing. Getting around by car was easy when we went to the lighthouse and restaurants that were a little further away. The covered parking at the house was great!

The owners were very friendly, kind, and great to work with. We will definitely be back and recommend anyone considering this rental to book it!

The Seafarer's Bungalow is a beautifully restored, furnished, decorated and maintained property sitting comfortably on a corner lot in the heart of a historic district in St. Augustine. Everything was perfect - from the ease of using the modern kitchen to the comfort of the beds to the safety of the neighborhood and friendliness of neighbors. The house has a small but lovely yard (front and back) and the corner lot makes the property even more spacious. I personally spent a fair amount of time on the screened front porch, reading, relaxing and watching the occasional passerby walk or bicycle past. The owners were only a phone call away to answer any questions I had and were very friendly and helpful. On top of enjoying being at the house, we found great things to do in St. Augustine or nearby including Marineland, the St. Augustine Wild Reserve and the Pirate Museum. We also greatly enjoyed not one, but two carriage rides in the evening with a horse named Scout (and his driver - who provided interesting facts about the city while showing us around. These rides start by the waterfront near the old fort. We fell in love with St. Augustine, with the area the Seafarer's Cottage is located in and with the Seafarer's Cottage itself. We hope to make it a bi-yearly (if not yearly) destination - and next time we will stay longer.

None Better In St. Augustine

My wife and i rarely get away for even a short period of time so we really treasure the few moments when we can escape home responsibilities. The bungalow is even better than the pictures would indicate. Everything from the decorating to the cleanliness was superb. Our house should be so clean. I'm a pretty fair cook so its important to me that the kitchen be fully equipped. The bungalow kitchen was as good as cooking at home - maybe better! Music, TVs, books, or just strolling around St. Augustine; the bungalow has it all. I'm a fanatic about clean bathrooms and the bungalow exceeded even my standards.
Frankly, I'd sell our home and move in there tomorrow. Our hosts were so kind and thoughtful. Treated like members of their family.
Can't wait for our next visit!
