We live just 3 blocks away in a lovely 2 story home built in the 1850's. We enjoy our sweet city so very much and enjoy walking for dinner or cocktails in one of the many restaurants. We enjoy our tourists and the many events that take place on a daily basis.

PATRICIA purchased this house in 2011

Why PATRICIA chose Saint Augustine

This property has great waterfront, the best views in the city. We often visit it ourselves for an evening with friends for wine and cocktails, football games on the 52 inch tv . We vacation there when we do not have guests, we just enjoy it so much!

What makes this house unique

Great dock, kayaks boating, fishing. fabulous views day and night. The house is big enough with enough space for guests to really enjoy even if they just want quiet time.................

Owner's Response: So glad to see friends and family make great memories in our Captain's Quarters. I love sharing our home with them, we have made great memories ourselves. Our neighborhood is convenient to everything so everyone can get their wish as to sightseeing, restaurants and of course shopping. The fact that it has awesome water views and views of the city adds to the experience.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We were a group 10 guys who were in town for my brother's bachelor party. The house was exactly as advertised - close proximity to historical sites, downtown bars and restaurants, and in a beautiful neighborhood. The bathroom setup is somewhat quirky but not detrimental and the bedrooms, in addition to fold out couches, easily slept us all comfortably. The dock is the true all star of the property. Patricia was helpful but not overly involved (which is appreciated). I recommend this property to anyone looking for an affordable option near downtown (not the beach).

A Repeatable Place!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful property at the perfect location for convenience and quiet.The waterfront sites are bold with boating and wildlife. The St. Augustine Schooner and other large sailing boats could be seen in the distance. Arise early and see a beautiful sunrise! It is a place where we have stayed more than once and would certainly stay again. Big kudos to Patricia for our visits as she was very helpful and made the process easy.
