Description for Garden Cottage Upper In the heart of the Old City lies Garden Cottage, a beautiful carriage house, more than 200 years old and lovingly restored. The upper story is a studio, the perfect hideaway for two. Now you can stay here, and experience a part of St. Augustine history!

Garden Cottage is part of the Old Mansion, an eighteenth-century home at 14 Joiner Street in the wonderful Abbott Trace neighborhood. While everyone else is circling the streets to try and find parking, you can stroll to all the historic sites, fabulous restaurants, and fascinating shopping of St. Augustine's historic district! There is free, secure, off-street parking at Garden Cottage, and you're within easy walking distance of San Marco Avenue, Hypolita Street, and so much more!

Garden Cottage consists of separate upstairs and downstairs studios, each suitable for 2 people. So if you're traveling with another couple or a group of friends, consider renting both the upstairs and downstairs!

To reach the upstairs studio, you ascend an outdoor staircase that travels right up through the old-growth trees! This takes you to the back balcony, which runs the length of Garden Cottage and overlooks the beautiful garden. You'll feel as though you've gone back in time as you sit out here, overlooking the palm fronds and gazing at the landscaped grounds.

The balcony is a great spot to bring your first cup of coffee in the morning, just as the birds are beginning to sing. It's also lovely in late afternoon and evening (turn on the lamp so you can read in the balmy evening air!). And the free WiFi at Garden Cottage works out here, so bring your laptop or phone and update your social media with all the latest about your St. Augustine trip!

Step inside Garden Cottage and you find yourself in a cozy, warm-toned paneled room with a sleeping area, sitting area, kitchenette, and bath. High ceilings, exposed beams, and a big window overlooking the garden all make this room feel airy and spacious. The parquet floor is covered with soft rugs, and the furniture is appropriate to the antique feel of the space.

The queen-sized bed at Garden Cottage is set in a brass four-poster bed, very comfortable! His-and-her reading lamps cast soft light, and the view out the window is visible even from the bed.

The sitting area begins at the foot of the bed, where two matching armchairs face a 19-inch HDTV. (Historical beauty is one thing, but modern conveniences are never sacrificed here!) Another big window casts light into the space (unless you close the blinds), and an end table is the perfect resting place for glasses of iced tea and sweet snacks. What a great place to unwind after a busy day sightseeing in the Old City!

The kitchenette at Garden Cottage is compact and efficient, with the serving hatch doubling as a table for two. Here you'll find a microwave, sink, mini-fridge, and coffeemaker, plus all the dishes and utensils you need to reheat the tasty leftovers from St. Augustine's fine restaurants! (Café del Hidalgo is right around the corner, by the way.)

There is even a full bath here at Garden Cottage, with a shower, sink, shelving, and commode. We provide all the towels you need, as well as the linens, blankets, and pillows for the bed. This studio is fully stocked, so toss a change of clothes into a bag and head off to beautiful St. Augustine very soon!

From the ornate mirror in the entryway to the framed fragment of crazy quilt on the wall, Garden Cottage upstairs is a charming, heartwarming, thoroughly fascinating place to stay. It's as though you stepped on the other side of the velvet cords at a museum and started living in the exhibit . . . with modern touches that make life easier, of course! Come see this beautiful cottage, nestled in a flower-filled garden, on your next St. Augustine vacation.

450th birthday party
Outstanding from Joe the gardener to trey the handy man a unique experience I would do it again
location, location, location!
Our stay was awesome! The gardens on this property are stunning. We stayed upstairs and could sit on the balcony and enjoy the view of the plants and birds. The room is small, but that does not matter because the location to the historic downtown area is the feature. We went to the beaches every morning and then came back and parked our car and didn't drive again until the next day. You don't fight traffic or parking. Everything is in walking distance! Great spot! We will be back next year.
The Old Mansion
Stayed at the Old Mansion in the upper level studio. It was excellent. Sitting on our balcony in the afternoons, glass of wine and looking at the most lovely garden. The gardener turned out to have a wealth of information, places to eat and things to see, so if you see him - ask him. Perfect location to town, easy to walk to everything. The shower is small and the studio not really clean (not dusted, counters not clean, no mattress protector and needs a "sweeper" if you are there for more than a day or 2) but overall I would say stay here, use this company. It was a wonderful time!
Great Location
The Carriage House was charming and it was in a great location. We walked to the history city and waterfront every day and really enjoyed the neighborhood. The beaches were just a few minutes away.
Garden Cottage Stay
We were satisfied with the Garden Cottage but there needs to be a lot of updating (new towels,sheets,pillows, etc.). Very dark inside and lots of "stuff". We were happy overall but the updates would certainly make it more appealing. Plan on staying in the future.
