Bright. Cheery. Cozy. That describes this carriage house in the heart of the downtown preservation district . Fully decked out for a wonderful getaway! Spacious, and comfortably inviting for two with the small touches to make you feel right at home. Simply put, it is a great space. Warm, inviting, an easy place to just be. Best of all, you will be within an easy walk of town and its endless attractions, and a few minutes from the beach. What more could you want on a vacation?
The kitchen has a fresh remodel with new cabinets, floors, and lighting, creating more space and easy flow. You probably won't want to do much cooking with all the local flavors within walking distance, but you will find an under counter "throw-back" refrigerator/freezer, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, electric kettle, and a really nice Caphlon toaster oven, as well as an induction cooktop for when you want to stay "at home." Relax in the comfortable living area or sip wine on the balcony overlooking the park. Enjoy bright window views to the park and garden, and beautiful artwork throughout. The bedroom is furnished with a queen-sized bed and outfitted with fresh and crisp white linens.
Lots of room to roam! The carriage house and its companion home are surrounded by citrus and fig trees, and an organic garden. The 2-1/2 empty residential lots are completely fenced and comprise our eastside yard. The expansive feeling makes for an urban oasis. Wake up and pluck fruit, or fresh veggies from the garden. There are of course bikes to ride, a rather fancy washer/dryer, and a bbq gas grill available to our guests.
Of course you have heard the old adage: location, location, location. Each spring and fall the city of St. Augustine hosts a long list of events at St. Francis field directly across the street!

"The location was perfect for exploring on foot, and having a parking spot during our visit was very convenient. We stayed two nights - great place for a weekend trip." (Dec 2020)

"The Carriage House was simply adorable. We loved the cozy layout of our home away from home. It had everything we could need, and nothing that we didn’t. It was perfect for our honeymoon weekend. The location was PERFECT for everything we wanted to do in the historic downtown area! We were able to walk everywhere which saved us the headache of paying for parking." (Oct 2020)
