What could be more luxurious than lying on white sand beaches and touring Spanish colonial architecture? Wander through the city of St. Augustine in Florida, the nation’s oldest city, and soak up the glorious rays of the Sunshine State before heading back to an opulent vacation rental. St. Augustine vacation rentals allow you to remain within close proximity of the city’s main attractions and explore them on your own terms — not to mention you’ll have all the amenities and privacy you need back at your accommodation.
Book a vacation rental in the city’s historic district—called Old Town—and explore the area like a local. Wake up at your leisure and traverse cobblestone streets to admire the architecture of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine before heading to the beach. Try as you might, you won’t be able to resist taking an afternoon swim. You can also book a vacation rental on Augustine Island; it sits directly east of St. Augustine and is home to the Castillo de San Marcos, a 17th-century fortress. After an exciting day spent touring ancient structures, return to your convenient short-term rental to shower off and unwind before venturing into the city for a scrumptious seafood dinner.
Reserving a vacation rental is a convenient and affordable way to experience the city like a Floridian. Cook food in the comfort of your short-term rental, enjoy a nightcap after a night of dancing, or simply sleep in without the fear of being awakened by groups of loud hotel guests. There are numerous options for accommodations in St. Augustine—including The Cozy Inn and The Smart Stay Inn—that will provide a comfortable home base in the city as well as the amenities you’ve come to crave while you travel.
