    Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Living Room: Pullout Sofa Bed

    The moment you drive up to this beautiful apartment situated 2 blocks off of King Street in the heart of historic St. Augustine, you'll fall in love with the surrounding streets full of unique, residential homes. Located on the third floor, the apartment provides the right amount of privacy to guarantee a relaxing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

    Inside, each room shows off its tasteful renovations, from the fully equipped kitchen complete with granite countertops to the wooden floors featured throughout the entire home.

    Start your mornings right in historic St. Augustine with a freshly-brewed cup of coffee in hand, sitting on the large porch overlooking the residential streets. Once the caffeine kicks in, you'll be ready for a full day of exploring, as you head downtown or to the nearby beaches for a refreshing day of pure leisure.

    For lunch or dinner, retreat back to your comfy home base to prepare a home-cooked meal in the fully equipped kitchen, gladly serving it at the 3-stool bar or charming kitchen table.

    End the night by strolling around St. Augustine, checking out the haunted ghost tours until you're scared enough to rush back to your homey apartment to pull the warm bed covers over your head, making you truly appreciate the close comfort of your home-away-from-home.

    The apartment was very nice. It was 3 flights up which gave me exercise :-) Clean, set up well. A small fridge so don't bring too much. A little walk from town but not too far. Pretty house with a restaurant downstairs so you hear a little music and conversation until the restaurant closes. Property Manager was great to work with; nice, accommodating, quick response time.

    The property was clean and well apportioned. The beds and linens were very comfortable. The house is 'close' to the heart of downtown, however, it is not around the corner. Please note that there are 3 actual apartments within the house and ours was apartment "C" which is 3 flights up. Not sure if the other apartments are rented via this site but if you had a disability the stairs would be a challenge or not possible. I was not bothered by noises from the restaurant downstairs and the staff was actually very helpful and friendly in regards to questions about the property. Apparently, the brunch at Preserved is the place to be and the entire house smelled wonderful Sunday AM! The owner/manager was very responsive and allowed a late check out. That being said, I experience this a lot with VRBO/Home Away rentals, a 10AM checkout is pretty early. I travel extensively and most hotels are at least 11AM; I find private properties really push it too early. The only complaint I had about the property itself is that the front bedroom does not have a closet (it was locked so I assumed that might be an owners closet). If there is not a closet a small hanging rack with hangers is needed for that room. Since it is a 2 room/2 bath house it is safe to say that a lot of people might be renting as 2 adult couples; which was our case. That rack could be stored in the large laundry room by kitchen. Also, room butlers (luggage stands) would be a nice touch and are very useful not only for the guests but for keeping guests from scratching up furniture. The additional struggle was parking. There are only 3 parking spots set aside for all three apartments. We arrived before the other couple so we got the one pass, however, sense the other couple arrived the next day and had to drive from JAX airport they had no place to park their rental car and struggled to find something on a residential street 3 street over. That situation is really not idea. Other than those small details, I would highly recommend this property. Just be aware of the one parking space likelihood as well as the stairs!

    We were very disappointed that we didn't have ESPN on the Directv line up. The guys couldn't watch the national championship, and we will always double check in the future to see if all the bedrooms have a TV when we rent. This was very disappointing too. The noise from the restaurant and the street makes it difficult to go to bed before 11pm, and you should be sure to let everyone know about the stairs. Maybe I missed it on the website, but if I missed it, others are too.
    The apt was beautiful, and nicely appointed with furnishings. The beds were comfortable.

    Our stay was perfect! The rental is exactly as described! The rooms are nice size, bathrooms also nice and clean. Beds slept just fine. Plenty of sitting space in the kitchen/living room area. The walk to downtown was less than 7 minutes and an easy walk. Downtown had so many wonderful restaurants to try out and lots of shopping! We were on the 3rd floor so didn?t hear much from the restaurant below but it seemed like a nice place to eat (we never got the chance to actually try the food there). The contact person was so flexible with our checking in early. Overall it was a wonderful weekend and we would definitely come back and stay here again!!

    The property was clean and the beds were comfortable! Kitchen had a Keurig and coffee pods were supplied. We like to cook some meals on vacation so it would have been nice to have a large frying pan and some additional pots. The decor was just as pictured and we really had a great time. The Preserved Restaurant below was excellent! We would like to stay again on our next visit. When I come again I will bring a little step stool (as I am very short) to make it easier to get into the great bed as I am only 4' 10". Thanks for a wonderful stay.

    Really nice two full baths and thanks for the keurig coffee. Walk to the center of town in 10 minutes but there is stuff right out your door anyway. Make sure to dine at the Preserve restaurant in the same building. Condo very clean and nicely apportioned. They should streamline the communications and instructions, there are a bit overwhelmingly. FIVE STARS and would stay again.

    We spent 3 nights in the 2- bedroom, 3rd floor apartment, with our 2 dogs. The apartment was clean, bright, and charming. The beds were very comfortable. We were appreciative of being able to travel with the dogs and most appreciative of the amazing restaurant, the Preserved, located on the first floor of this renovated building. We enjoyed dinner downstairs 2 nights - the food is delicious, the ambience wonderful, plus it was a treat to smell the food being cooked starting about 3 pm (8am on the weekends). You can walk to some other great restaurants in 10 minutes, the heart of the historic district in 15. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. We will book this apartment again on our next trip to St. Augustine.

    I would have given it more stars but the smell from the restaurant below was overwhelming at times. The caretake was kind enough to provide us with some odor neutralizers and it helped a lot. The noise was a little loud on the weekend nights from the street. I know that can't be helped. I do wish there had been a full size refrigerator. It had such a large kitchen and I really couldn't cook because I had no where to store things. It really is a beautiful apartment anyway with room for everyone and the caretakers were very gracious. I would definitely rent here again.

The restaurant downstairs is delicious and beautiful - you can definitely smell the food cooking in the unit - it was not bothersome but something to know.

    The apartment was a 10 min walk to the historical district. It was very clean an well kept and pets accepted was a plus. A few minor things that if addressed it would make it a great stay. Only 1 TV in the living room and none in bedrooms. The living room only has 1 sofa so a family cannot relax comfortably. They do have chairs but no very comfortable to hang out. And finally, the food odor from the down stairs restaurant was sometimes annoying.

    I visit St Augustine frequently to visit my son and have had positive results staying at a few different rental properties. The 3rd floor unit above the Preserved Restaurant is my new favorite. The floor plan is open and perfect for visiting. The fridge is a little small but we worked around that and had a wonderful week long stay.
