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:)

Why Lisa Francis chose St Augustine
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

The location and amenities were perfect for our Christmas stay. Thank you Lisa so much for putting up a tree and decorating. The outdoor TV and bar were great for watching the game and having a few drinks. The walk to town was amazing and not having to drive made it so easy to enjoy the shops and restaurant with ease. No parking to worry about. The kitchen is well appointed and has everything needed to have meals at home if we didn't feel like going out. Even though it was to cold to get in the pool it was nice to just sit out there in the warm sun. If we plan to come to St Augustine again we will rent again as this is the perfect location for enjoying the town.
Thank you Linda it was a pleasure having you and your family!:) Hope you have a wonderful New Years.
Fabulous vacation home.
We are repeat renters and were fortunate to spend the month of March in this fabulous vacation house. Lisa thought of and provided everything you need to make your stay terrific. It is a beautiful home close to town and many other attractions and activities. Lisa provides a booklet of suggestions and menus for many of the local restaurants, as well as discount coupon books. We also spent time just relaxing in the pool area while watching tv on the large screen tv in the outside bar area. We loved every minute of our winter vacation. Thanks so much!
Fantastic Property and Great People
We were lucky enough to stay here for 2 months and this is by far the best house we have rented. Kitchen is extremely well equipped and the house is very well decorated. The private back yard , swimming pool and outdoor kitchen make for a great party area. Everything is in good shape and the owners really care about this home. So much to do in the area and downtown is an easy walk or bike ride away.
Thanks so much John and Lisa it was a pleasure to have you and we hope to see
you again this summer, looking forward to spending time with you:)
