Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our bright and airy 2 bedroom, 1.5 baths home is situated in a cozy, quiet and safe neighborhood in the historic downtown district of St. Augustine. This classic, turn of the century, Florida house has been recently renovated and features 12 foot ceilings, new kitchen, updated bathrooms, and fresh paint. The backyard is fenced, perfect for pets and includes a charcoal grill.

Located just two blocks from the Matanzas River, the Intracoastal Waterway, our Blue Bell cottage offers guest ample room for relaxing, visiting with friends and family, and entertaining. There’s a private covered deck and patio in the back and a cute front porch offer additional space for guest to entertain and relax.

Nearby, guests will find abundant choices for dining, shopping, and site-seeing. Just a short walk away is the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum and the Castillo de San Marco fort.

Nestled in a charming community with picturesque views and abundant activities, our Blue Bell Cottage is sure to be your home away from home.

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.

About Steve

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 Saint 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

This was our first time to St Augustine and this cottage was amazing! It was in the perfect location and the whole area was incredible. The cottage was clean and had everything anyone would need and we were in love with the kitchen and back porch. When we go back we will for sure to stay here again!!!!

Practically Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Blue Bell Cottage. Such a great location. We walked almost everywhere and could walk to the trolley and used as transportation as well as a fun tour. The cottage was so comfortable and cute. The neighborhood was very nice. We had a great getaway in one of the most beautiful places in the US.

Perfect , cozy and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. The house was clean , cozy and comfortable. Loved the little outdoor space . Perfect for dogs with the fenced in yard . My only suggestion would be to have a couple of bikes to get around town a bit easier and maybe a couple of beach chairs . Other then that , it was perfect . We will definitely be back .
