About Fred and Geri Pompeo

Just a couple of folks from New England yearning to move to this wonderful City of Saint Augustine.

Fred and Geri Pompeo purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Fred and Geri Pompeo chose St. Augustine

We bought in St A with the intention of retiring here someday. After debating whether to purchase at the beach or downtown we decided on downtown when we learned that you can drive and park on the sand at the beach - making it easy to go to the beach - so downtown was it. This home was picked because it was the perfect size, all rooms on one floor and so close to everything downtown that we could walk to and from places with ease. Plus it had a great front porch! It was rented full time for awhile until our daughter, when looking at colleges, figured out it was a great place to live while she attended Flagler College. So it worked out well for her. Now we visit occasionally and offer it to others to enjoy as they visit St A - until the time comes we retire here permanently.

What makes this cottage unique

A great location, perfect size and great front porch.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We walked to everything. Great location. As someone said before it was nice to sit on the porch and people watch. It was St. Patrick's weekend so a bit more going on. The owners are very responsive and the place was found to be just as described. A much needed great few days with the family.

Lovely Home . Primo Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely cottage. Well appointed. Clean. Has all you need. It's actually very spacious. Good sized bedrooms, kitchen, and living area. This place is not off the beaten path, so there's some bustle; it's not super quiet. But, given the location—a stone's throw from everything downtown you want to do—it far outweighs any sounds. Kind of fun to sit on the porch and watch the passersby and the trolley. I waved to everybody on the trolley. Haha It's a fun area. We would definitely come back.

Terrific Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic cottage in the heart of St. Augustine. We found it be exactly like the pictures, super clean, and the hosts were very accommodating. As others have said the front porch is very nice and we enjoyed listening to the tours go by. The beds are very comfortable and there was even a pack and play for our little one to use. The best part was parking your car and leaving it there the whole week because everything is within walking distance. You can even take a bus to the beach. We will definitely stay again next time we are in St. Augustine.
