ARTIST BUNGALOW - DOWNTOWN ST. MARYS - JUST BRING YOUR CLOTHES

St. Marys Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Artist Bungalow, Historic Downtown St. Marys

JUST BRING YOUR CLOTHES!

Whether you are vacationing, road tripping, working, or relocating, this bungalow will be a welcoming “temporary headquarters”. Clean, well appointed, with basic start up supplies ( herbs, spices, coffee and teas) to make your transition smooth....and a taste of true Southern hospitality.

The house itself is cheerful and sunny. Recently, I furnished it with a few of my “favorite things”. Antiques and artwork “eclected” through the years delight and surprise you along with the mix of modern creature comforts.

The entrance deck opens onto a cozy glassed and screened sun porch and then into an office area and spacious living room. Your master king sized bedroom awaits you at the end of the hallway. Your guests can enjoy the four poster double bedroom across the hall. Off the kitchen and living room is a pleasant dining room that looks out into the back yard where you can enjoy the birds at the feeder. The kitchen’s been updated with laundry center, dishwasher and microwave and of course, the fun, functional Hoosiers. If the weather is nice, move outside with your favorite beverage and talk about the day’s adventures while you grill your supper.

Explore our friendly downtown on our new beach cruisers. You can pedal around and enjoy our waterfront activities, meet your neighbors and make new friends.

For those of you traveling with your pets, you will enjoy the fact that you can let them out the back door into your own private fenced yard. Along with a charcoal grill, there is a patio table and chairs and a small garden planting, bird bath, and water feature.

You are one reservation shy and one short block from a Main St. USA parade in our friendly little town. Let us welcome you to the 'Second Oldest City in the United States'. ( St. Augustine claims they're first because their paperwork was in order!)

Hi, I’m Elizabeth Gray. I grew up in St. Marys. My family and friends are here and so has been my career as an artist. When I finished school, I started my own business, Gray’s Gallery and Custom Frame Shop. It’s been a place where I have framed lots of artwork for other people, and where I have displayed and sold my watercolors. It has been fun to furnish this space with my work and other local talent for you to enjoy.

Elizabeth Gray purchased this bungalow in 1983

When my father’s family moved down here, there was a little Scottish enclave that occupied four homes on the end of this block. Gilman Paper Company was just setting up, and from New York came my grandfather to head the power plant. His wife’s sister, Aunt Laura & her husband lived in this sweet little house and my grandfather lived next door. Eventually, both of his sons, my uncle and my father, found the loves of their lives, married and built & bought homes next door. And so began all of our lives in this sleepy little town, St. Marys by the sea. I remember stopping by Aunt Laura’s house in the morning to pick up treats lovingly wrapped in wax paper for recess, and by my grandfather’s house to pick posies for my teachers. To this day, I can still smell the sweet peas. What a gorgeous array of colors! Deep purples, fuchsias, lavenders, pinks, periwinkles, reds, whites, and blues. When I returned from college, I bought my grandfather’s house and started my art gallery and framing business there. When Aunt Laura’s house became available, I was able to keep it in our family. Now it is time to share it with you.

Comfort, efficiency, and fun were the themes as we furnished this house. There was lots of laughter as my friends and I pulled together and scrubbed and painted and bounced decorating ideas off of each other. Some of my original artwork is hanging here and my entire collection of St. Marys watercolors. It is fitting that Aunt Laura, the original owner, did the crochet hanging in the dining room. Art and antiques harmonize with modern conveniences. Privately nestled in a quiet neighborhood, this home is five blocks from both the Meeting St. Boat Dock and the St. Marys waterfront. You are one block away from watching boat traffic on North River or a small town parade on Main St. On a morning walk, you can see boaters headed out for a day on the water, shrimp boats trawling with their outriggers ready, an occasional dolphin, and every once in a while, a couple of little marsh bunnies. Laughing gulls, pelicans, cormorants,ibises, herons, mourning doves and red-winged blackbirds welcome you to the water. Every day you can visit with the river kitties that faithfully wait for a rub and a scratch as you round the corner. Golfers are 15 minutes away from two public courses. Ferry rides to Cumberland Island & Fernandina Beach are five minutes away, along with our beautiful waterfront park, restaurants, kayak rentals, and shopping. For those of you on temporary duty at Kings Bay, you are five minutes from the base gate. Life in the slow lane is but 30 minutes to the Jacksonville International Airport.

The bungalow remains a work in progress as I continue to upgrade with stained glass, nautical charts, gardens, wind chimes, patio furniture, and privacy fencing in the immediate back yard.

Now you can strike out on some new beach cruisers as you explore your new downtown and waterfront areas.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Artist's Bungalow provided a wonderful retreat for our restful and relaxing vacation in an out of the way and slower paced town. We spent a full week in this completely (and I do mean completely) furnished house. Elizabeth, the perfect hostess (available if needed but not intrusive) has thought of everything a person away from home could possibly need and added just a bit more. I have already recommended the cottage and the town to at least a half dozen friends and co-workers for a terrific getaway for a vacation or a romantic weekend. All one needs to do is bring their clothes and enjoy!

perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This was a very comfortable home away from home. Elizabeth has thought of everything you might need to enjoy your stay at her cute little cottage, and we were very comfortable there with our two children. Elizabeth was easy to communicate with and made sure all of our needs were met. We really live in our vacation rentals--cooking, laundry, etc., and everything we needed was provided for us. It's a nice walk to the center of town and a very pleasant place to hang out during down time between trips to the beach and to Cumberland Island. We would definitely stay here again.

March, 2014 Vacation.

Our stay at the Artist Bungalow was delightful. Elizabeth was the perfect hostess. She thought of everything we might have needed during our visit. This included toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, shower cap, soap, gel, hair spray, tooth paste,tooth brush, snacks, tools, bug spray, and too much more to mention. The house was very cozy and more than well equipped. Now the was bed, WOW!! The furniture in the living room was worn and needed replaced but the other furnishing were more than adequate.
The area offered so many activities. The ferry to Cumberland Island, Crooked River State Park, Fort Clinch and Fernandina Beach, Amelia River Cruise, and Tabby Ruins. On Saturday the town of ST. Mary's has a street fair down by the river from 9 am- 1:00. Elizabeth had bikes that we used and explored all the area.
One negative were the sand gnats. Very pesky creatures that ate us alive. Bring lots of Skin so Soft. Bug spray doesn't faze them.
We loved the beach. We found beautiful shells and fished in the surf and in the river.
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing two weeks.

Lovely Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a month at the lovely bungalow. It was exceptionally clean and provided everything you might need while away, and even more. The linens were of a high standard, and the bed comfortable. It was very quiet and peaceful, and we enjoyed sitting on the front screened in porch. The owner was very attentive to anything that arose and always ensured our comfort. The area is very walkable and close to the waterfront.

Just returned from two wonderful relaxing weeks in this unique bungalow. From the décor, to the art, to the wonderfully stocked kitchen, including spices, this house was great! Two other things made this stay even better; the welcoming of pets and the great hospitality of Elizabeth. We'll be back.

Christmas in St. Marys

We were so impressed with the artist bungalow............it was immaculate and prepared with care for our visit. Anything we thought we needed was there and the owner made herself available to us with any of our questions. We can't wait to go back and relax in St. Marys. We highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to the area.
