We come down quit often just to relax, ride the bikes into downtown area for dinner at Harry's, sitting outside and listening to a great local artist sing well known songs, then we might be off to Sangria's upstairs for more wine and great musicians playing every weekend. Then we never fail to go by to Mia Casa on St. George St. to say hi to owner Marney. They also have a great guitarist playing Saturday afternoons James Taylor songs. I was born in St. Augustine but have always lived in Jacksonville Fl. but spent many weekends visiting my grandparents and cousins in St. Augustine, but even today 57 yrs later I still find something I have never seen before there. So I hope you come and love exploring as we do and that you will come back often. Lisa Francis:)

It is our retirement home, not just a rental to us, I was born in St Augustine, but lived in Jacksonville, but visited grandparents all the time who lived there. I love the area, being close to walking to the restaurants, pubs,is a plus and a short drive to the beaches, I always find something I didn't know was there even after 58 yrs.
We love riding bikes all over downtown area, trying all the wonderful restaurants there. Bringing our boat down and going down the beautiful intracoastal and watching the dolphins at dolphin pt.
We just love this city.
We stayed in this beautiful house for my son's wedding weekend. I am very detail oriented when looking for a property because I want it to be an experience for everyone. This house DID NOT disappoint and was even better than I anticipated. Family members would stop by, we would gather at the outdoor bar for toasts, and the rehearsal dinner I held there was absolutely beautiful. Lisa even helped me with names of vendors I would need. The overall weekend was memorable and perfect in every way!
We spent a week in this delightful house shortly before Christmas. Not only was it even nicer than it appears in the listing, the owners had tasteful seasonal items in the house that matched the season perfectly. Lots of open spacious areas and a wonderful back yard with warm weather pool. We'll be back!
We spent a week in this house and it was wonderful. My husband chose St Aug for celebrating my 60th birthday! With this house, all the attractions and super restaurants, it was an unforgettable birthday! Lisa was great to work with and very informative about some great places to eat! We enjoyed everything about the house...totally comfortable home...very clean, great pool, very nice furnishings, comfy beds, wonderful kitchen, everything we needed! Enjoyed being able to walk or bike to good eateries right in the neighborhood. Close to downtown and not far to beach. We highly recommend this rental. It felt like home from the time we walked in until we locked the door to head back to our real home! Thank you Lisa for helping make this an awesome trip!
This property is a perfect location for the area. You can walk to downtown St. Augustine over the Lions bridge & have access to all the fun places & many really good restaurants. The home was very clean & well provisioned. Lots of room & great place for entertaining & partying. Steve & Lisa are good property owners & very good at attending to anything you need (Lisa was exceptional at getting back to us with helpful information ).
The beaches & many othet attractions are within a short drive. And their neighbor Norm was fun to visit with & a great source of local information (we hope he's on the payroll ).
This was our 3rd visit to the area (the other 2 times right on the beach), but the best place!
Truly a home away from home. Great location close to everything we were interested in. The kitchen was one of the most enjoyable aspects of the home, my wife and I love to cook and that is a cooks kitchen. My son enjoyed the pool tremendously as did I, my wife enjoyed the lounge chairs while we swam. The outdoor grilling area was a huge plus for me. Overall we had a great stay and plan on coming back soon.
We rented this beautiful home for our daughters wedding week and were so impressed by every little detail! Lisa was so wonderful and accommodating to work with. She was very helpful and available to answer any question we had. The home was supplied with any and everything you could possibly think of. You literally could just show up with your clothes. We have never been to a rental before where the owners took such good care of you.
The beautifully updated home is set up perfectly for a bridal party to get ready for the wedding. The main living area and kitchen was spacious enough for 9 ladies to get hair and make up done with no one being crowded. The pool area is lovely and relaxing. We enjoyed many days before and after the wedding with family and friends. There is a grill for cookouts and the Ping pong table was a hit.
The location was perfect, as our wedding reception was at the White Room, which is located just across the bridge. The beach was just a short 10-15 min drive. We also enjoyed the bikes and rode into town frequently.
I highly recommend anyone that wants a beautiful home away from home rental to choose this!
