The Space

We are a couple who have a second floor guestroom (12x12) with a queen sized bed, so it can be a single or two close people! Private Bathroom attached. We supply all linens, towels, etc- you can even borrow 2 beach chairs! Parking is right in our driveway (which is a luxury in downtown!)
We live in the center of St. Augustine, near restaurants, bars, the historic bayfront and fort. Very safe area.
The second floor living room with a big TV and a balcony is for your use alone and you can stash food in our fridge and cook if you are tidy! Washer and dryer too! Oh and we have plenty of wine glasses if you like to sit and sip on the balcony.

You can park in our driveway, smoke outside- but no pets! No children under 8 as the house is step filled, tile floor etc.

**I've gone legit- licensed and paying federal. state and local taxes-So raised my rates a little. I'm the only licensed airbnb in town- Guess i shouldn't complain- part of the bed tax supports our local cultural activities.

  • Cathi and Les are wonderful, very friendly and accommodating hosts! We have been to St. Augustine several times as we only live a few hours away and this has been one of our favorite places to stay. If you have been to St. Augustine before then you know that parking is a HUGE stress downtown, so we loved that we could just leave our car in the houses drive way and just walk all over town! The house is about a 2 minute walk from St. George Street (lots of wonderful shoppes and eateries) and about a 5 minute walk from the Castillo. Cordova Street also has really easy access to A1A and and Bridge of Lions so it is really easy to drive out to St. Augustine Beach. The inside of the home was beautiful, clean, and we had access to our own personal bathroom, living room with TV, and porch overlooking Cordova Street. Next time we come back we would love to stay here again!

  • My stay with Cathi and Les exceeded all expectations. Not only was the room even more spacious and beautiful in person than the pictures could do it justice, but I so enjoyed Cathi and Les as hosts and as people. Their home is truly a home, not just a place to stay. My wife Shana booked this room for me, and this was my first AirBnB experience--I traveled alone to St. Augustine, and I could not believe what a great space it was and how comfortable it was to interact with Cathi and Les as people. Also, the space, the location, the (luxury downtown!) parking spot, the amenities, the entirety of the space upstairs that felt both private and like a home in the best way--it was beyond all expectations. Thank you both, and I would recommend staying here to anyone and everyone. And if we ever planned to stay in town overnight again this would be our number one choice...! ---Jonathan Inkman

  • The house was clean, quiet, cute and spacious. Loved use of the balcony chairs at the end of the day great spot to sit, reflect, sip wine if you so choose. They couple was lovely and friendly and provided towels and wine glasses also offered to let us use the fridge and coffee pot if we so needed. We barely saw them as we were out enjoying the city the most of the time. They were very helpful by leaving tour guides and maps in the room as well offering directions. The room also had a black out shade witch was very nice when we wanted to sleep in. Also they had good water pressure witch is nice. I would defiantly recommend this location. It was right in the heart of down town and really gave the feel as if you were a resident. Had a blast walking around and enjoying what make St.Augustine so Magical.

  • I stayed at Cathi's beautiful home for a weekend. The property exceeded all expectations. The home is located in the very heart of old St. Augustine and was very convenient to many eateries and watering holes. The elevated porch was quite relaxing with a glass of wine. The bedroom was very comfortable and nicely furnished. The parking space is definitely a plus in the crowded quarter. Thank you Cathi and Les.

  • Perfect location. Beautiful home. Cathi was out of town during our stay, but we met their friend staying at the house as well. No complications at all. Everything is in walking distance in downtown. Would stay again.

  • This was the perfect place to stay for my friend's late night St Augustine wedding. The downtown location could not be more perfect, the room was great and the balcony was lovely. I was able to park my car and leave it. The hosts were accommodating and great to talk to.

About
We are an architect and a nurse who are lucky to live right in the heart of historic and beautiful St. Augustine Florida. We have 3 bedrooms and can only sleep in one- so we thought you might like to sleep in another! We could rent 2 rooms to friends/family who don't mind sharing the bathroom. We host a lot and love our guests and they seem to like us too judging by reviews ! Our travel seems to revolve around our East Coast families- long weekends if we're lucky. We would be cheerful guests- probably prefer separate guest quarters or whole house.
