Welcome to The Palm Paradise - Your Unique St. Augustine Downtown Retreat!

Transport yourself back in time and immerse in the rich history of St. Augustine while savoring modern comforts at our captivating 3-story Queen Anne vacation rental, nestled just behind the majestic 1 bedroom Grand Oak at 28 Saragossa St. As the oldest home on the street, this architectural gem, originally built in 1891 by the renowned Birds Eye View Artist Henry J Ritchie, boasts 50 windows and 25 rooms, making it a true historical treasure. But don't be fooled by its age – after a meticulous 1.5-year renovation, The Palm Paradise now offers a delightful fusion of old-world charm and contemporary luxury, creating the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable stay that seamlessly blends history and beachside relaxation. If you need more space or are traveling with friends check out the 1 Becroom Grand Oak located in the same home or one of my other 5 Downtown homes located within 2 blocks or 5 Oceanfront homes with 6 miles. See the VRBO links at the bottom of this Listing.

At The Palm Paradise, we take immense pride in offering an exceptional indoor and outdoor experience, transcending the conventional hotel space to provide you with a genuine home away from home. Upon entering, you'll be enchanted by the hardwood floors and the abundant natural light streaming through the tall coffered ceilings in the Great Room. Our 1-bedroom haven, ingeniously designed, easily accommodates two couples or a family with children, with the leather sleeper sofa and additional stack stools at your disposal. The fully renovated kitchen, once the Boiler Room of the home, now stands as a showpiece, featuring a tall paneled ceiling, marble countertops, stacked shaker cabinets with glass doors and an antique cast iron sink with a drainboard which evokes a sense of history and nostalgia. The black slate floors, each piece a unique work of art, add an elegant touch to the space. The large bedroom, graced with a California King bed and antique drop-front desk, creates a perfect relaxation or "Work from Home" space. The floor-to-ceiling subway tile bath, 10' shower curtain, and black surface-mount shower further transport you back in time, providing a truly immersive experience.

But it doesn't end there. Step into the enchanting backyard, where salvaged old bricks have been artfully repurposed to create a fenced viewing patio for the majestic Giant Palm, the inspiration for our home's name. Enjoy a delightful outdoor dining space for four, complete with a grill offering both gas and charcoal options, surrounded by plants and the sweet songs of birds Whether it's a tranquil morning coffee or a delightful sunset dinner, the backyard offers a serene oasis for relaxation.

And let's talk about our prime location – we truly embody the "Best of Both Worlds." Just a quarter-mile stroll from the heart of Historic Downtown, you'll be engulfed in vibrant tourist attractions and an array of delectable dining options. Additionally, we are strategically located just a few miles from not one, but two beautiful beaches – Vilano Beach, a mere 3 miles to the north, and St. Augustine Beach, 5 miles to the south, both boasting ample parking and incredible dining establishments nearby. To enhance your beach outings, we provide beach chairs, towels, and boogie boards, ensuring you have everything you need for an fantastic day by the sea.

At The Palm Paradise, you'll find more than just a cookie-cutter rental. Unlike properties revamped by investors, this unique retreat was lovingly restored by the owner, resulting in meticulous attention to detail and a personal touch that sets us apart. While we reside in two of the apartments, we warmly invite you to immerse yourself in the history and comfort of The Palm View, the Grand Oak or any of our meticulously renovated historic homes, conveniently located less than 2 blocks away. Please check out the links below. We are dedicated to ensuring your experience in St. Augustine is nothing short of extraordinary, and we're here to make sure of it.
