About martha lowe

My late husband and I fell in love with the St. Augustine area when our oldest child went to Flager College many years ago. As a result of that, we have purchased and owned many properties in the town. When my husband passed away several years, I have sold many of the investment properties we owned, as it has been too hard for me to keep up with all the maintenance and work required. This is the only home I own in St. Augustine at the current time, and love the location, layout, and overall setting of this duplex. My son and daughter-in-law live on the other side of the home, and he takes care of it when I am not there. His occupation is property management, so he is on site for any questions or situation the occupants may have. I love being there, also, but still work up north at the beach in Delaware, so I can't be there all the time, which is why I choose to rent it for weeks that it would be vacant. I have never met a person yet who does not enjoy the St. Augustine area , with all it has to offer.

Why martha lowe chose St. Augustine Area

As I stated before, my late husband and I fell in love with the St. Augustine area when our oldest child came to Flager for college. We did a lot of camping here with the kids and have purchased many properties here throughout the years. 5 9th St. is the first property we purchased and the one I have decided to keep. Our oldest child never left the area and lives up the road in Jacksonville Beach. Our youngest, and his wife, live at 5 9th St. in unit B, and our daughter and her family live up north where I reside, but they are frequent visitors to St. Aug. There are many other people from Bethany Beach, DE, where I live, who also have fallen in love with the area when their kids have gone to school and have subsequently bought and own property in St. Augustine. I love my time there, as I have come to know other people there, and it is truly a 2nd home for me. The area has terrific shopping, and cultural events are occurring weekly there. There is a great Wed. Farmers' Festival only blocks from the home, right near the fishing pier. On Saturdays, there is large Farmer's Market on Anastasia Island, only minutes from the home, featuring all types of food, crafts, artwork, and more. If the weather is not good for the beach, the downtown area if full of history to learn about. Shopping on historic St. George St. is always fun, and you will never run out of new restaurants to try, whatever your budget may be. Once a month all the art galleries in town are open on Friday evenings, with wine and snacks, for all to enjoy- I believe it is the last Friday of each month. There are concerts throughout the year at the amphitheater, which is close-by and would be on the St. Augustine website for dates, times, etc. There is always a lot going on down here if you want something to do!

What makes this townhome unique

What I love about St. Augustine is how convenient it is. It is an easy drive from where I live. It also offers so much variety for everyone as far as activities, whether you are a beach, golf, shopping, art or history buff. It's a great place to go sit on the large beach and feel totally alone on an island, or jump in the water with grandkids and enjoy the great sand and gentle waves, and lots of shallow water for little ones to play. Go fishing on the pier, or one of the many bridges in the area,or rent a boat and try fishing in one of the rivers or out in the ocean. Just be sure to check with a tackle shop about seasons- what is open, license requirements, etc. Walking and biking around are fun- not a lot of mountains to climb, and the weather is usually good. I love the variety of restaurants available, from Beach Cafe on A St., where you literally eat at the entrance to the beach, to O'Steen's, where they sell the shrimp they catch that day and it's the best shrimp I have ever had- you can tell by the lines at certain times waiting to get in- to more fancy restaurants, like Harry's downtown with live music, Creekside(over by Home Depot)- like an old fish camp, with live music and great food. I've been visiting a long time, and there are still numerous historic sites I haven't seen yet, so there is always something to learn about. Shopping and/or people watching on St. George St is another activity almost everyone enjoys- lots of characters to enjoy and a large variety of stores. It's a wonderful area to visit and experience.

A Relaxing Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights at the home at the end of June following a cruise. The home was very nice and only steps from the beach. The home was fully equipped with parking right in front. The beach was wonderful, relaxing and quiet. St. Augustine Beach is much more family oriented than other east coast beaches we have visited before. The landlord was very helpful and available to answer questions. I can see us staying here again in the future.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast! Super location to the beach and great little places close by. I couldn't have been happier and more comfortable. Perfect amount of space and most everything we needed. We plan to rent this place again if it's available and we already have friends looking into renting it over the summer!

Nice stay by the beach

  • 3 of 5

We had a really nice, short stay in St. Augustine. The rental was very conveniently located within steps of the beach and our children were able to go multiple times a day due to the close proximity. The kitchen was stocked with all of the basic cookware you would need. The carpeted upstairs was very cozy. It was only a short drive into downtown St. Augustine. Please note that you should be very careful not to lose the single key in the lockbox, as you would have to pay a locksmith to rekey the door. Also, be sure to get your access info and owner's number in advance, as upon arrival the rental is locked and no info is left to access the keybox.
