“Quaint and while not directly on the beach, a great location”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at O'Cottage over Memorial Day 2015, and had a wonderful time. My wife loved the furnishing of the house, I loved its functionality. There are two bedrooms and a bath upstairs and the same downstairs. Both levels each have their own living/tv room. This is great if you are traveling with teens who may want to watch something different or just hang out separately.

The lower level floorplan is a little strange, with the 2nd bedroom being a small bunk room, and the bathroom having the exit to the backyard (and keypad entry into the house). If some people are out of the house and you are going to use the downstairs bathroom, then you probably want to be sure to lock the deadbolt. Otherwise, family returning from the beach could use the keypad to open the door and walk in on you. We never had a problem, but I could imagine it happening. With that one small possible caveat, it is extremely functional and wonderful. (My teenage daughter and friend were given their choice of the two twin bedrooms, and they chose the downstairs bunkroom. Perhaps because they wanted easy access to the downstairs tv room with its huge flatscreen tv.)

Location wise, I must admit, I was worried I wasn't going to be happy not being directly on the beach. However, O'Cottage is so conveniently located, I loved it. One block to the beach, one block to the inlet, one extended block to the marina and restaurants, and one block to Publix. It couldn't have been more convenient. My wife kept saying how quaint the whole place was, a small beach town, not a beach megatropolis.

The beach is great. But we would recommend you take a drive to the Anastasia State Park. The beach there is truly remarkable. There is a $8 per vehicle entrance fee, but you won't be disappointed.

The owner was extremely nice and helpful, responding very quickly to any question that we had.

Overall, we would definitely stay at O'Cottage again and would recommend it to all.

“Great cottage, great location!”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I recently had a "girls weekend" and our stay at the O'Cottage by the Sea was perfect. It was clean, quiet, well decorated and modern, yet beach-y. They even have an outdoor shower. The beds were comfortable and plenty of room for us 4 and then some. A great place for families. Two entertainment/living areas with large flat screen TV's. Kitchen fully stocked to cook in, but why bother with so many great restaurants in St. Augustine. We did enjoy our coffee and breakfast out on the front deck where we could feel the ocean breezes in the morning. It is a few short blocks walk to the beach (bathrooms available there) and a short 5 minute or so drive to the heart of old St. Augustine where you can get your fill of history, educational, yet fun,trolley tours and ghost tours at night. Then fill up on good food and drinks at fun bars and a variety of restaurants. Each morning the girls took a walk across the Vilano bridge for exercise and a great view. And a real plus was the new and fabulous grocery store two blocks away. The location was perfect. We had a wonderful time and we got great "shorts and tee-shirt" weather in October. I highly recommend this place.

“A home away from home!”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I say it's a home away from home because with three children, two being 14 month old twins, we felt very comfortable, cozy, and clean! We had all the amenities necessary to cook, relax, and enjoy our time there. It's in the most PERFECT location with super close beach access. We LOVED being able to drive right on the beach for a small fee. Very worth it!!! The owner was always available and very accommodating! We would absolutely stay here again and again! Thank you!
