About the owner: Last year when vacationing in Saint Augustine, Volkmar Dirksen became fascinated with the architecture and charm of the city as well as its historical significance. It was then that he decided to branch out into the acquisition and property management of short-term vacation rentals.
Volkmar is the president and founder of two commercial real estate and property management companies, DWV Investments, Inc. in Fort Lauderdale established in 1985 and DWV Realty, LLC in Cornelius, North Carolina. He is a successful real estate investor, broker, developer, and builder. He is also the president and owner of US 1 Travel, Inc. established in 1988 and has many years of experience in travel and hospitality.
Why this property? This wonderful 1919 Craftsman house was purchased because of its beautiful architectural design and historic significance. Casa Coquina is located on a shady peaceful street in the heart of Lincolnville within the boundary of St. Augustine's historic district, America's Oldest City. It is a short walk to all attractions and great restaurants.
St. Augustine has much to offer and is historically rich with endless things to do and see.
Guestbook comments from the owner:
We had a great time. It was wonderful and the kitchen had everything. The outdoor area was a lot of fun. We rented a golf cart one day and the downtown area was close enough that we could cruise down there with our family. Everything was clean and nice!
We decided to take a chance on this new vacation rental with no reviews because of the great location (a short walk to everything) and the property photos looked so lovely. Turns out the house is exactly as described even better! The house was so clean and well appointed, just beautiful, oozing with character and charm, yet so spacious and comfortable with all modern conveniences that made for a wonderful vacation in St. Augustine. We had excellent communication with the host. She was quick to respond to questions and needs and made us feel like special guests.
We loved the front porch for coffee in the morning. We enjoyed the putting green in the backyard for some evening relaxation. The kitchen was so well equipped we could have cooked up a feast. The house was so very clean. Everything sparkled. We slept well in the comfortable beds. We could not have been happier with our decision to give this house a try. We plan on coming back and bring friends with us to share some more memorable time in this beautiful home in fascinating Saint Augustine.
