Located under 2 miles from the center of downtown and under 3 miles from the beach, The Vedder Cottage is a perfect home from which you can take in all of the sights and sounds of the Old City and the natural beauty of this coastal paradise. Class and comfort come together in this cottage which retains much of the charm of the era with original pine flooring and ample windows throughout to bring in the natural daylight, creating a comfortable and warm space. Separated from the main house by a lush and quaint, gated backyard is an adorable bungalow perfect for giving privacy to guests.

Meals are easily prepared and served in the fully equipped kitchen, and popular Brisky's Barbecue is just a few steps away for quick southern take-out fare. Rent a bike and take a short ride to the Fountain of Youth park where the original St. Augustine settlement once sat. The Vedder Cottage is located just off US 1 which provides quick access to shopping and numerous restaurants.The Cottage sits along the main thoroughfare from days gone by and a block and a half from Flagler's historic Florida East Coast Railroad line which adds to the nostalgia of the place.

Exceeded my expectations..
5/5 stars
..,And I live at a yacht club where the mgt is always trying to be the best. The first thing to know is this house is perfect! The second thing to know is that the bungalow included is a BIG BONUS! Both are well equipped and esthetically pleasing. A lot of thought went into making sure that guests have easy entry, questions answered, timely response, a relaxing environment and a fair price for the property. Would definitely stay there again.
