Great Experience!

The property was super clean and beautifully decorated. We had absolutely everything we needed and Lisa was so kind and helpful. The location was perfect with just a short walk to the beach and many restaurants. I would definitely stay at one of Lisa's properties again if we ever return to St. Augustine! (I hope we do!) P.S. We didn't travel with our dog, but it would be the perfect place to stay if we had.

Fur Family Getaway

Lisa was such a great host at 1st Street Retreat. As soon as we arrived, she greeted us with waters for us and our dog. The unit is the cleanest unit I have ever visited, and it was supplied with EVERYTHING. Lisa even had beach chairs, extra soaps, and every cooking utensil you would need. One of our favorite things to do was to go to Pubilx down the street and come back and grill our food out on the patio. 1st Street Retreat is centrally located near everything so you can walk or take a short/cheap Uber ride. Downtown St. Augustine is only 7 minutes away- make sure to visit the Lighthouse, the Castillo de san Marcos and take a Ghost Tour! As for the island, I would highly recommend the AIA Burrito Works across the street and get a "Mexican UFO." Sunset Grille, Cone Heads Ice Cream and Fiesta Falls Mini Golf were all fun things to do on the island. Lisa was very knowledgeable on the area's hot spots- she suggested visiting the music venue by the pier every Wednesday; we had a wonderful time at that! The unit is right across the street from the beach and Lisa has a beach cart that you can take; you also have access to the car ramp beach access at A Street if you want to drive your car on the beach. This unit perfectly fit our needs for our first vacation with our dog. Our dog loved the outside area (and chasing the Florida lizards (: ) while we enjoyed drinks by the fire pit. The unit was private and decorated so beautiful and beachy- we felt right at home in St. Augustine. We are already trying to figure out dates to come back and visit. Thank you Lisa for your hospitality! See you soon!

Gorgeous Getaway in a Great Location!

Beautiful, private, quiet, convenient! A leisurely stroll to the beach and several great restaurants. A short drive to everything else you want or need. Tastefully decorated and lacking nothing. Lisa is a wonderful hostess and has thought of everything! We'll definitely be returning when we can spend more time to enjoy and explore the area more.

Fantastic and Centrally located Island Retreat!

My husband, two little kiddies and doggie had an amazing week at The 1st Street Retreat. The retreat is centrally located on the island; right across from the beach, walking distance to local Restaurants and shops, minutes to down town, the Lighthouse, Alligator farm and more. Inside was exceptionally clean and comfortable with all the accommodations of home and more! It fit the four of us and our doggie perfectly. Outside is a private little oasis with an outdoor table to eat, a cozy fireplace to enjoy the night and a grassy area for your furry friend to run and play. Lisa and Tony made us feel welcomed and like we've known them for years. They are both very kind, hospitable, and offered great island recommendations. Thanks so much for providing our family such a warm and wonderful place to stay. We can't wait to come back!
