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.

Wonderful bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and very comfortable for an extended stay. You cannot beat the location. The owners were so helpful and kind. We had to cut our stay short because of hurricane Irma. I hope that Saint Augustine will be spared from the worst of it.

Nice bungalow close to where you want to be

  • 5 of 5

Renovated bungalow, well-appointed, nice big rooms, AC works well in hot, humid conditions. Very close to Castille de San Marcos and Flagler College. Worked out well and accommodated our party of six without difficulty. A good alternative for anyone wanting to be in the historic district, but doesn't want or can't (small children) stay in a B&B. This is a real house, so it has a few quirks, nicks and such, but that didn't impact our stay. Beds were comfortable, kitchen large and amply equipped, and the cable worked great. Would definitely return to this little bungalow for our next trip to St. Augustine.

Perfect St. Augustine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. This quaint and clean cottage was right in the heart of St. Augustine. We stayed her for a.mini family reunion. My brother and I live far away from each other so what a joy to not lose a moment and be able to spend our whole vacation together, instead of in different hotels and scheduling meeting times. There was a total of 5 adults and 3 teenage boys. More than enough room for us all. The one afternoon there was a huge thunderstorm, since we didn't want to walk around and get soaked we had a great dance party on the enclosed porch. Actually everyone's best memory. I still dream of that porch, perfect for morning coffee and late night family story telling. The owners are so nice and give great advice on activities, but even better the best restaurants in town. Everything is within walking distance so once we parked our cars we never needed them again. We will definitely rent this charming beautiful home again.

Quaint and cozy craftsman home perfectly located in the historic district

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well kept home. Perfectly located in he historic district. We walked to all of our favorite places! We only got in the car once to drive to the beach couple miles away. We will definitely come back! Homeowners are very responsive by email. We had no issues with the home.
