Adorable Cottage Near Downtown W/ Enclosed Yard & Spiral Staircase - Dogs OK

Absolutely adorable both inside and out, this St. Augustine cottage is just the place to call home for an unforgettable vacation. Upon entering, you and your guests will immediately be smitten by the bright interior, stylish decor, and unique spiral staircase leading to the upper level. The vaulted ceilings throughout give this home away an airy feel that everyone will enjoy and the enclosed backyard will be just the place to sip an evening cocktail as the family dogs run around. After a full day of exploring the city, there will be no need to eat in town, as the chef of the group can easily whip up tasty meals in the fully equipped kitchen before everyone settles down for a movie night in the living area boasting a flatscreen TV.

What's nearby:
There will be no delay in getting right into the heart of the city, as this home away sits a block from the adorable shops and restaurants that line Highway A1A. When you want to venture out a bit, fun for the whole family awaits at Ripley's Believe It or Not! (half-mile), Castillo de San Marcos National Monument (three-fourths of a mile), the Lightner Museum (one-and-a-half miles), and Ponce de Leon's Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park (half-mile) just to name a few. Plus, simply walking along the water of the Matanzas River will be a great way to use an afternoon, as a plethora of shops and attractions line the bank.

Well appointed. Quiet neighborhood. Perfect for relaxation! Plenty of room for our fur baby as well.
Laura S. Aug 2022
We loved our stay in the Abbott House. The location, in the historic district, is convenient to all the places we wanted to visit. The kitchen is well-equipped; the entire house was immaculate. We were very comfortable in this house.

Great stay in a darling home. Location and accommodations are wonderful. Our pups love the deck and fenced backyard. Second time we’ve stayed there and would highly recommend! Thanks so much!

Great location. Cute as a bug place to stay. Management was really on top of the very few issues we had.

Stephanie M. Aug 2021
We absolutely loved this little home! It was very clean, the backyard was perfect for our small dogs to play in. It was such a nice area to walk around with cute little shops. The pizza place right around the corner was great I’m from NY & I really liked their pizza & knots they also do live music at night so it was perfect to go listen have a bite to eat, a drink & only have a 2 minute walk home. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to historic downtown where we loved Mojo bbq & many other restaurants with a variety of cuisines. It’s the perfect location we would definitely stay here again we loved it so much!

We had a great time. The location was fantastic and the neighborhood was quiet. Plenty of room for the four of us.

Great location for a couple with a dog. Easy walk to the bars and restaurants. Our four-legged friend loved our morning walks around the fort. Would book again

We stayed in this home for the Memorial Day weekend, and the location was perfect! We were within walking distance of the shopping area and Castillo de San Marcos. Short drive to St Augustine Lighthouse. Very clean and comfortable, wished we could have stayed longer. I would definitely stay here again!

This house is in a very convenient location. The neighbor complained to us that we had 3 vehicles on the street. Vacasa never said we were not allowed that many. The back yard was about a foot tall as well as the grass in front of the house. We paid $222.00 for our dogs to stay. We didn't really allow them to spend time out there because who knows what was in the tall grass. I was not happy to say the least! There are 2 bathrooms only 1 has a shower the master is a tub only no shower. The rest of the home was nice and we enjoyed our time there which is why I gave it 4 stars.
Manager response:
Hi, Wayne! We are glad you enjoyed your stay despite some frustrations. The yard is very small, so we're struggling to find a lawn service that will put it in their weekly schedule. We will continue to look for regularly yard maintenance. This home has street parking only, and it is 'first come first serve.' Unfortunately, a new parking ordinance means there will be no parking here in the near future, and our guests will need to use garage parking. Thank you!

This was the perfect place for 4 ladies to celebrate a milestone birthday! Everything in the house was as described. Clean, comfortable, stylish decor on a cute safe street with everything we needed. Couldn’t ask for a better location being a short walk to many of the main attractions St Augustine has to offer including excellent restaurants, historic area, bars and shopping. Easy check in and check out. Highly recommend!
Alicia S. Apr 2021
This little cottage is adorable and so well stocked! It was great to come to Saint Augustine and not worry about anything! Thank you!
CONNIE K. Mar 2021
We were very comfortable, we loved being within easy walking distance to things, and we loved being in an old, historic area!
Mary B. Mar 2021
Perfect walkable location for those looking to explore St. Augustine. The house is cute and worked well for our family of three. We had everything we needed.
Jillian B. Jan 2021
We walked to the fort and historical St. Augustine every day, the location couldn’t be much better! The bedrooms and loft were great. The big tub was a hit for mom and baby. The backyard was cute and cozy.
We had groceries delivered and took advantage of the great kitchen, as well as so many nearby restaurants. The family had an amazing week; thank you!

The house doesn’t look like much until you open the front door; much larger than it looks! The house is exactly what we expected. The location is a few blocks from the Castillo, and close to everything. The house was furnished so cozy and had all of the amenities we needed. The back yard is quaint and perfect for a little dog. The neighborhood is very quiet as well. This house will be our “go to” home in St A, we loved it so much it felt like home!

We loved walking around the neighborhood and seeing all the beautiful homes in the area. What a great retreat!!
Gavin D. Dec 2020
The cottage is as beautiful as the pictures depict. It’s only a few minute walk to downtown which means shopping and great food are always available. We can’t wait to stay again.
