About the Property

We provide Boogie Boards, Beach Towels and Chairs. It is really the B"est of Both Worlds". This 2017 Remodel Guesthouse combines the Old World charm of Heart of Pine Floors & Claw Foot Tub with the NEW look of Marble and Glass. Designed to be a versatile space you can rent the entire Guesthouse, shown here, or just the top or just the bottom. That gives you 2 Kitchens, 2 Greatroom, 2 Laundries and 2 Outdoor Dining spaces. 4 King Bedrooms & 2 Queen Sleepers + 2 Singles & 3.5 Baths. Comfortably Sleeps 14. Plenty of room for 14 to come together and create lasting memories.

UPSTAIRS PALM VIEW (3 Bedroom 2 Bath)
It all centers around the Greatroom and the Kitchen. The Great room with Large Smart TV (3 TVs in all) has plenty of seating with a Leather Queen Sleeper Sofa + Love Seat & 2 Swivel Chairs. It features a unique 2 Headed Revolving Fan you will love and gorgeous original gray hand stained Heart Of Pine Floors.
The Kitchen is Open Style with cooking and Dining in one space. The Kitchen is from my old Homestead in Tennessee. The cabinets are Poplar. They were originally built over 50 years ago and even at that time the wood was antique. Supposedly these Poplars died out long ago and you cannot buy the wood any more. My Father found it when they were tearing down an old Elementary School in my home town of Shelbyville Tennessee (Walking Horse Capital of the World if you have heard of us). I always loved them as a child. So when I heard they were tearing down my homestead I had to save them. I have spent hours restoring them. I hope you will appreciate them and an Old Farm Sink which I salvaged. The is a New SOAP STONE Counter Island for extra seating and a Handmade Butcher Block Coffee Bar. New Stainless Appliances. Lovingly White Washed Pine Ceiling. Unique Dining Table with Lazy Susan + another Revolving Fan.
There are 3 Bedrooms. All with King Beds with Smart TVs and Fee Wifi.
The Master with Private Bath was originally a Sleeping Porch. I enclosed it, raised it and added Light Pine Floors. It has a King Bed + a Fold-down Sofa for extra Sleeping or relaxing. The Bath is all Marble Floors and Glass. I fell in love with the Spa Glass Doors and used them to the Bath and Closet and carried the Glass look into the Shower with floor to ceiling Subway Glass Tiles. The Vanity is Marble topped with unique retro Faucet.There is large Marble floor Closet with room for a Pack-N-Play, available upon request.
Bedroom 2 has a similar walk in closet and shares a bath with Bedroom 3. Both have King Beds! I have learned what you want. (I agree after one night on a King it is hard to go back).
The Bath has the "Original" Claw Foot Tub stamped with a 1919 date. We added a shower option for your convenience but let me suggest you try a bubble bath. My Husband and I only do "Tubs". Try it. This is the time to relax. You are on vacation!.
My sons favorite is the ceiling Night Light/Fan in the Bath. It blue tooth's to your phone so you can play your music (if you can figure it out. I provide instructions in the Move-in but that does not always help. Need an Millennial). My Husband loves the "Blue" Night Light. I like the Marble Floors & Bead board walls.
There is a Laundry on the first floor with Linens & Towels provided.
Outside is a private Paver Patio with Dining and romantic String Lights overhead. The Grill that can go Gas (provided) or Charcoal.
1ST FLOOR SECRET GARDEN (1 Bedroom 1.5 Bath)
The 1st Floor has a totally different look. The floors are beautiful White Marble throughout. It includes a second Greatroom with Smart TV and Queen Sleeper Sofa. Fully stocked Kitchen made from the same Tennessee Poplar. A Second Laundry.
There is a Half Bath in the Greatroom for Guests and a Huge Master Bedroom with Private Marble Bath, of course a King Bed plus a roll-out Single Trundle. Great for a "Little One". There is also a giant Walk-in Closet with room for Pack N Play. You will recognize my beloved Glass Spa Doors like upstairs and this time a Marble & Glass Shower with removable Hand-Held Shower Head. The Vanity is Marble with Twin Sinks and loads of hooks.
A frosted mural glass door off the Master leads to a private "Secret Garden" with a second Grill and Covered Dining area so you will have 2 private Outdoor spaces to enjoy. Plenty of room for everyone.
There are 3 dedicated Parking spot in the Alley and unlimited parking on Lemon with a lit paver sidewalk beside the Main Home leading back to the Guesthouse.
We are located Downtown at 67 1/2 Lemon St only 5 miles to my favorite beach called St Augustine Beach just south of Anastasia Park over the Bridge of Lions. Their is lots of parking & public restrooms + amazing Restaurants. There is a great Farmer Market on Wednesdays and in the Summer even FREE Wednesday night outdoor concerts. The sand is perfect for building Sand Castles. The waves are great for Surfing. We provide Boogie Boards or you can rent Surf Boards and take lessons or rent bikes at A Street. Towels and Beach Chairs provided.
But you will find so much to do Downtown you will probably only go to the Beach the first day. Downtown is a world all its own. Simply Charming. Especially at night with the lights twinkling and the sound of music filling the streets. Great Restaurants. Great History. Great People. All walking distance from your door. What more do you want? Call for my list of Recommended THINGS TO DO and RESTAURANTS.
Feel free to call me anytime. I always answer my phone and am here to help.
I am also a Realtor so if you "Fall in Love" like I did, I can help you find a great deal on a Vacation Home. I would love to take you Shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
The property was beautiful and location was amazing. Overall a wonderful place that my family and I enjoyed very much! We would definitely stay again!
Our stay was wonderful The house was exactly as described. It was clean and well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Communication before and during our stay was timely and accurate. Great house and great stay!
We had an amazing stay at the Lemon house. As soon as you walk in, the first thing you notice is how clean the home looks and smells. With the current Corona virus concerns, we were obviously nervous, but the house was immaculate and we were immediately calmed.
The city was quiet overall, which was expected, but it was perfect for us. We were able to see most attractions, which was great, but hung out at the house a bunch also. We had 9 people and everyone was cozy.
Would definitely rent from Linda again.
This was our second time staying at this guesthouse and the first time renting both the upstairs and downstairs for a family reunion weekend. It was fantastic! Such a great house for sharing big family meals while having space for quiet conversations. We agreed we’d love to make this an annual trip!
We had such a great experience at this property in St. Augustine! It’s a 7-10 minute walk to town, with a ton of great restaurants and shops near by! Linda is a great property manager and helped us with so many needs! There was a pack n play, umbrella stroller, and high chair as well as plastic plates for a baby at the house already! Made it for super easy travel with a little one! We rented both the upstairs and downstairs and both were extremely clean and taken care of! We would 100% stay here again!
