Nestled in your own large, privacy fence lined lawn and gardens, the cottage is newly refinished and updated with hardwood bamboo and travertine floors, modern amenities, and pleasing, comfortable furnishings. Two furnished patios and a hammock draw you to the outdoors to observe the variety of plant and tree species, birds and butterflies on the property. The owner of the cottage who lives next door is a gardening enthusiast who loves drawing the monarch butterflies to her landscape for guests to enjoy. You will feel at ease in this safe and quiet neighborhood which is located along the Matanzas River and just next to The Lion's Bridge. Bikes are provided for an active way to take in St. Augustine and the surrounding neighborhood.

This one-bedroom cottage has a spacious and beautifully decorated living area with cozy seating space, dining table, large-screen TV, and plenty of natural light coming in through the windows and french doors which open out onto a sitting patio and the backyard. The sofa opens to a queen size bed to sleep an additional two people. The cute kitchen is fully furnished and stocked with dishes, utensils and cooking accessories. Enjoy plush towels in the bath which is outfitted with a tub shower combo, and rest comfortably in the queen size bed in the step-down bedroom which also has plenty of closet and chest space for storage of your personal items. The side patio is an additional outdoor space to enjoy a cup of coffee in the mornings.

Monarch Gardens is an easy half-mile walk over the iconic Bridge of Lions right into the center of the Historic District where you can explore the history of oldest European settlement in America and also some of the newest trends in dining.

Monarch Gardens
5/5 stars
Monarch Gardens is a must stay! The home is meticulously kept and extremely homey. The owner left a very sweet note and chocolates; we felt very welcomed and at home. My dogs loved the huge backyard and begged to go outside the whole time. Every convenience was available, you won’t need to bring anything but your clothes. Definitely a place we would revisit.

We had a great time at the house! We had everything we needed. It was sparkling clean and beautifully decorated. It was really nice to have a washer and dryer to use as we went to the beach and had extra laundry. Our host and hostess were very friendly and helpful!

We loved our stay at Monarch Gardens. The cottage was beautiful - clean, comfortable, private and stocked with everything we needed. The outdoor area was really peaceful with 2 patios, a large private yard, hammock and lots of trees and plants. We enjoyed the short walk into downtown over the Bridge of Lions and had fun biking to the beach at Anastasia State Park. It was also fun biking around the neighborhood where we stayed which sits along the Matanzas River. We even saw dolphins early one morning! We highly recommend Monarch Gardens and look forward to another stay here.
