History of the house:
This property was owned by Dr. Weedon, physician to Osceola, the Indian Chief made famous during the Seminole Wars of the 1800s. The property at one time was owned by the Union Army when it was confiscated from its owners. Restored by its current owners, the house has a wonderful mixture of old architecture and modern luxury.
This historic home is in a residential neighborhood, so we request, out of consideration for neighbors, that our guests respectfully limit noise/music after 10pm. Also, social events are not permitted at the house. The use of candles, fire pit, barbecue or any other open flame is not allowed due to the age of the house and insurance restrictions.
As in most downtown residential areas, parking is very limited. Our house has off street parking for 3 normal sized cars or 2 large cars. If you have more than 3 cars or if you will have guests please let us know so we can coordinate parking with you and our neighbors.
No events, gatherings, pets, smoking, parties, disruptions or other disregard of lease terms can occur, or terms of rental are void and immediate eviction will be enforced. Persons other than those specified in the booking are not allowed in/on the property unless approved by us in advance. If you would like to have a visitor please coordinate with us in advance. Please let us know who, when and for how long you expect your guest. Parking will also need to be coordinated as we have limited space.
Fire code restricts persons on the property to no more than 20 at any time, this includes the garden area.
This property is licensed with the City of St. Augustine as a vacation rental.
A little bit about myself:
I have a beautiful family that consists of my wife, 2 small dogs and a Hemingway cat. My wife and I are very social and love to travel, pursue our many hobbies, and enjoy the outdoors.
For the past 13 years I have had the pleasure of living in St. Augustine, a place I truly love. As I grew up, I lived in and traveled to many different places all over the globe but very few have matched the beauty and culture that St. Augustine has to offer. I enjoy seeing others discover all the treasures this town has, so when you visit, I will be sure to give you the local scoop. If you are contemplating a visit to St. Augustine, please don't hesitate to reach out to me for some local insight!
