Next time you're in St. Augustine, don't just visit historic sites -- live in one! When you stay in the downstairs studio of Garden Cottage, a 200+ year-old carriage house in the heart of the Old City, you experience the romance of history first-hand.

Garden Cottage is on the grounds of the historic Old Mansion at 14 Joiner Street, surrounded by lush gardens, old-growth trees, and beautiful vistas. You might expect the property to be out-of-the-way, but it's in the very heart of the city, within walking distance of attractions from Ripley's Ghost Train to all the antique and art galleries of San Marco Avenue. Hypolita Street is just around the corner, and South Castillo is a block and a half away. The only drawback of visting the Old City is parking -- and you have free, safe, off-street parking right in front of Garden Cottage!

Garden Cottage has been extensively restored, so it combines modern convenience with authentic charm and period accuracy. This studio is one large room with a small bathroom and kitchenette. Big windows afford lovely garden views, and everything is cozy, well maintained, and quaint. If you're seeking the perfect getaway, look no further!

Step through the shimmery summer curtains and open the door of Garden Cottage. You find yourself looking at a Regency-era room, the walls a rosy shade of pink with elegant white picture-frame wainscoting. The floor is polished parquet, set about with soft Oriental rugs. A floor lamp and several table lamps offer soft golden lighting, and a ceiling fan circulates the air-conditioning nicely.

In the center of the room is a huge, king-sized bed in a four-poster frame, ultra-comfortable and so spacious. Two gilt-finished easy chairs stand at its feet, facing a small TV on a shelf in the wall. All the furniture is antique and very useable -- it makes you feel as though you've stepped back in time, not just visited a museum!

Turn around from the rosy-pink walls and ornate furnishings and you see that the front walls have been left as natural wood planks with simple, sturdy black hinges, much as they must have looked when first built. The kitchenette is in this area, with a serving hatch that doubles as a little bistro table for two.

The kitchen contains a microwave, coffeemaker, mini-fridge, counter space, and cupboards -- just what you need to reheat the delicious leftovers from the Café del Hidalgo and Columbia Restaurant, or brew a strong morning cup of java to enjoy in the garden! You'll find all the mugs, plates, and utensils you need waiting for you here.

The bathroom at Garden Cottage is quite small, with a shower, sink, and commode. Neat corner shelves hold your toiletries, and the tile floor feels great on hot "walking" feet! All of the towels you need are provided for you here, as are the linens for the bed. Pack light and prepare to find your studio getaway fully equipped when you get here!

With its lovely garden view and cozy interior, the downstairs studio at Garden Cottage makes the perfect destination for a couple or for friends. And the exterior is almost as exciting, with a brick courtyard, comfortable bench amid the flower beds, and plenty of lush vegetation!

If you have a larger group, consider renting the upstairs studio as well as the downstairs. It is also furnished for two, with an exterior staircase leading up through the treetops!

Garden Cottage is in the heart of the Abbott Trace neighborhood, near all the St. Augustine attractions you might want to visit while you're in town. It's quaint, affordable, and unforgettably charming. Make it your pied-a-terre next time you visit the Old City!

Property Reviews 
Romantic cottage location
A guest from Dobson, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014
Excellent location while staying in historic St. Augustine. Within walking distance of all the sites downtown. Excellent coffee shop just arounfpd,the corner. One block from the visitor center. The property was beautifully landscaped. If you have a chance to meet the owner you will be fascinated with her historical perspective of the property.

A Week in St Augustine
Michael L. from Naples, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014
Overall we liked the location and were able to walk to do most of our sightseeing.The lower apartment of this garden home was lacking in light. There was no bright sunshine coming in the windows and not one window could be opened. I would have preferred the upper level which had a balcony and lots of windows. If we were to rent in St Augustine again Inwould want the upper level apt.
