The city of St. Augustine is rich with history and full of moments that will forever mark its place as the oldest city in Florida and the oldest continuously occupied colony in North America. Founded in 1565, before the colonization of Jamestown by the English and long before the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, the Spanish settled this area and established the now existing city of St. Augustine.
As you walk down the streets of St .Augustine in its modern stage, Spanish influence on architecture and infrastructure is still evident. Despite the many setbacks throughout history including a yellow fever epidemic, pirate invasion, and battlefield of many wars, this quaint historic city continues to offer its guest and community a multitude of stories, folklore, and beauty. All of the many facets of this historic town, its tranquil environment, family friendly attractions, excellent dining, relaxing atmosphere, and the view of the beautiful ocean are the many splendors that attract guest here regularly.

My wife, 2 mutts and I have been traveling from Michigan to St. Augustine the last couple winters to renovate this turn of the century home. We love the history, great beaches, antiques and art.
Steve purchased this house in 2009
Why Steve chose St. Augustine
We have traveled around Florida for years. We kept returning to this area because it seemed a little less hectic than busier southern locations. St. Augustine is nicely laidback.
What makes this house unique
We love the 4 block neighborhood called the Abbott Tract our house is located in. It's a mix of large plantation houses and smaller Florida houses. It's very quiet; no through traffic feels very safe. It's 2 blocks to the old fort, intercoastal, Ripley's, and A1A antiques shops.
Guestbook comments from the manager
The cottage was perfect for us, it was just the right size and in a wonderful neighborhood. It was very close and convenient to walk most places, plus we rode the bikes all over town. The decor was lovely, the place was spotless, and the bed was comfortable. We'll definitely return next year!
