The main living room is a breathtaking space featuring high ceilings, hardwood flooring, original wood cladding, custom electric fireplace, 2 Queen-sized futons, a 52" HDTV (with DirecTV & movie channels) and a dining room table. High end original artwork and custom-made reclaimed wood planters provide a cozy and luxurious feel.
Just off the great room is the sunroom, boasting an overhead skylight and a full glass wall accessing the back porch. Enjoy a beautiful view of the backyard oasis during a game of pool or ping pong. The table can also be utilized as a dining table for exceptionally large groups.
The master bedroom is also located off the great room, and is extremely spacious, bright and airy with multiple large windows displaying views of nature. The Queen-sized bed is plush and features a high end pillowtop mattress with sateen sheets. A large closet houses plenty of storage space. A massive front yard acts as a buffer to the master bedroom and provides a peaceful and quiet setting.
The second bedroom is located off the sunroom and features a plush Queen-sized pillowtop bed with a custom-made reclaimed wood headboard. While this bedroom is smaller than the master bedroom, it makes up for it with sufficient walking space, copious amounts of natural light, a view of the backyard and a large closet.
The kitchen is fully-stocked and spacious, capable of accommodating all of your cooking needs. It comes equipped with cooking utensils, dishes, silverware, spices, oils, coffee ingredients and tea. There is filtered water available for your use, as well as a complimentary bottle of wine.
The tiled bathroom is roomy and equipped with a full-sized bathtub. A glass table is provided for your toiletries. The bathroom is professionally cleaned before each new reservation.
The outdoor patio has a table and chairs with an sunshade umbrella to accommodate meals, games and relaxing. The patio overlooks the backyard area and its peaceful jungle-like atmosphere. Step down to the additional concrete patio to light up the fire pit and plop down on one of the camping chairs. You'll be mesmerized by this rare contrast of naturalism nestled into the downtown locale.

We are a 5 minute walking distance from the St. Augustine Distillery and Ice Plant. The Ice Plant is an old ice factory that has been rehabilitated and renovated into a bar and restaurant, partnering with the distillery to offer ice drinks and FREE tours.
Nearby is the channel-side "Crave" food truck, which is a waterfront favorite among locals. We are also very close to the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum, which is about a 15 min walk from the house. The Saint Augustine Amphitheater and Ponte Vedra Concert Hall are great venues for music and events.
There is a local Farmers Market on Saturday mornings at the Amphitheater on Anastasia Island- an excellent place to get local meats, fruits, vegetables, breads and bakery items. Saint Augustine Beach is the primary beach attraction, while a special segment of Vilano Beach permits 4WD vehicles to drive oceanside directly onto the sand. You will love your stay here!+ More
