What you will love about this home

Our home is a single-family house at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighborhood. The interior is recently renovated with new fixtures, flooring and window treatments. We’ve been trying to down-size and keep our furnishings simple. Since our six grandchildren live nearby, we also keep things sturdy and child-friendly. The house is spacious and very hypoallergenic with wood and tile floors--no carpet. We are also pet-free. The large galley kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils since we enjoy creating tasty and memorable meals for family and friends. The house is light and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows along the back that look onto landscaped patios. The ceilings are vaulted and have sky-lights to add to the bright environment. It is a quiet retreat and a nice place to unwind from busy days of sight-seeing and adventure-seeking. Please note: Houseguests are expected to clean and leave the home ready for the next guest. Professional housekeeping is available upon request for a fee. Smoking is not allowed inside of the house.

What you will love about this neighborhood

Our neighborhood has the best of both worlds. While we are nestled in a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle, we are also near all major attractions in St. Augustine. We are walking distance to the "back door" of Anastasia State Park and its natural beauty and miles of pristine beach. St. Augustine Beach Pier is also a walkable distance and the beginning of the lively beach scene with restaurants and shops. The Pier hosts a weekly Farmers' Market and during a good part of the year, there is live music at the Pier Pavilion on Wednesday nights. The St. Augustine Amphitheater is a short walk away and hosts world-class events as well as a weekly Arts and Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings. The heart of historic St. Augustine is a short 3-mile drive from our house. Immerse yourself in the history of America's oldest city. Walk the grounds of the Sacred Acre at the Mission Nombre de Dios where the seeds of Christianity were first planted in North America and the founding site of St. Augustine. Visit the Castillo San Marcos and St. George Street in the heart of this quaint city. The Lighthouse and the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park are just down the road. Getting to and from St. Augustine is easy using the Interstate highway system. The Jacksonville International Airport is forty miles north on I-95 and Daytona International Airport is fifty-nine miles south on I-95. The Orlando International Airport is 124 miles to the southwest using I-95 and then I-4. From our neighborhood to Disneyworld is about a two-hour drive or about 125 miles.

We love living in St. Augustine and helping visitors learn about our rich history as America's oldest city. Did you know St. Augustine was founded in 1565 by the Spanish conquistador Pedro Menéndez de Avilés and is the oldest continuously occupied settlement of European origin in the contiguous United States? Come explore and learn more! You also get the added benefit of Florida's climate, pristine beaches and world-renowned tourist destinations. As retired educators, we are ready for new travel adventures. We can be flexible with travel planning and are open to unique opportunities. We do have a family connection to the Azores, Portugal and are open to home exchange opportunities there. We'd like to explore all of the islands of the Azores, using St. Michael as home base.
