This property is comfortable for just 2 people or up to 10 people in the Main House and for an additional fee has 2 suites also available to make a great house for family reunions or Weddings. Can sleep up to 18 with the Dakota Suite & West Wing. The Oviedo House is a charming 2 story house offering convenient lodging close to Historic downtown St. Augustine and Flagler College. This house was built around 1910 as a rooming house for nurses of Florida East Coast Hospital, located 2 blocks from Flagler College, six blocks from Historic downtown and just a few miles from great shopping and the beach. It has been completely remodeled with care to offer new amenities, yet keep all its original charm!

Our family stayed here for the wedding of our youngest daughter. The location was within walking distance of the old town. It was so very comfortable, clean and charming. We will book it again for our next trip to St. Augustine and recommend it to everyone we know. If we come alone we would not hesitate to rent one of the upstairs units. Thank you Kitty for letting us enjoy your Wonderful home. What a great home to have grown up in!!

Owner's reply:

Kerry, We absolutely love to share our home with our guests and really appreciate the feedback. It lets us know we are on the right track. We are also glad that we play a part in making memories that will last a lifetime. Would love to have you come back. Remind me when you book. Also, thanks for leaving a review. I think reviews make those considering booking Oviedo House more comfortable! Kitty

Perfect for a family reunion.

This was a great place for our family reunion, it had lots of space for 20+ to gather. It is a quick trip to St. Augustine and there is a short boardwalk to the ocean. Publix is within walking distance if you run out or anything. It is right near the inlet and you can watch ships come and go. It is a casual, not fancy, place so you feel at home. Everyone slept well in their beds. Linens were fine and the kitchen was well equipped. We all agreed we would rent the place again even without a reunion. I highly recommend this rental for a relaxing getaway.

Owner's reply:


Your review sounds great. Somehow it is on our property for Oviedo House which is in the historic district of St. Augustine. From your description, this does not sound like our property as we do not have a boardwalk to the ocean, etc. You might want to try and repost to the correct property because as a vacation rental owner, I know how important these reviews are. I also tried to get Vacation Home Rentals to call me so we could see how this happened, but no response. Kitty

house rental for the groomsmen and families

Perfect house to rent for our son's wedding for all of the groomsmen and families. The couple with a newborn stayed upstairs and had their privacy.

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind review. So glad we could be a part of your son's special day. Hope you come visit us again. Kitty

A perfect house for our family

Our family of 8, including a toddler, thoroughly enjoyed the comfy, spacious house. It was spotless when we arrived, and the kitchen and bathrooms were stocked abundantly. The location of the house is perfect for walking around the historic district, to the fort, to the Lion Bridge. The kids especially enjoyed bicycling around the neighborhood. We loved our time in St. Augustine and in the Olviedo House and would love to return.

Kitty Pursley

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the kind comments. We love to share our home with guests to help make their stay in St. Augustine memorable. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come visit us again. Kitty

Awesome Week

We had a wedding and a family reunion this week. Home was more than we expected. Housed our family well. On Sat we had bridesmaids make up and hair done in the suites opened to the house. More than enough room, what fun! If any negative it is the parking situation. We could actually get 3 cars parked on the side of the house but the ticket police will ticket a car if even the bumper is over the yellow line. The city isn't very friendly for parking.

Kitty Pursley

Owner's reply:

Sandy: So glad you and your family enjoyed Oviedo House. Also I don't get the opportunity to meet our guests personally and can tell you that I felt very comfortable with you in our house after meeting you and your family. We have so much in common. Hope our paths cross in the future. You are correct in your comment that the police will ticket the cars if they have any part on the yellow lines. I think I will add a caution about that in our Entrance and Exit Policies for future guests. Again, I am glad we got to have a part in your wedding and family reunion.

Oviedo House

This was a very goodplace for the seven of us! It was comfortable with everything we needed. We would have preferred a third bathroom on the upper floor, as we were not using the Dakota Suite, otherwise we were very comfortable. Close to dining and nightlife. We would come back again.

Kitty Pursley

Owner's reply:

Bob, Thank you for your review. I am always looking for ways to improve our home and make it more comfortable for our guests. As a result of your comment on the bathroom on the upper floor, we have installed a full bathroom in the Sun Room, so thanks to you, our future guests will have this. Great suggestion! Also we have had a few more golf groups. Not sure if you sent them our way, but thanks.

Everything you need!

This house was wonderful and had everything we needed for a perfect vacation, including a BBQ, towels, and a full kitchen for cooking. The house was clean and comfortable. The only downside was sharing the upstairs floor with live-in renters, but if you are comfortable with that, this is a great deal.

Convient and part of Historic District

Our family gathered at the Oviedo House from several states. There was room for all. Even the pull-out couch was comfortable. A notebook with labeled pictures showed where everything was in the kitchen. The kitchen/living room combination is spacious and comfortable. A favorite place was the rocking chairs on the front porch. We were greeted with fresh flowers, lights on and the gas fireplace lit in one of the bedrooms. I agree with a previous reviewer that it would have been nice to have a full bath upstairs, but we were able to all use the ones that are downstairs. It was a pleasure to be able to relax together, grill a great dinner and walk safely through the whole area. We felt as if we were family guests. I think that is the owner's intention. This is, and was, their family home. It shows in all the conveniences from laundry, fully appointed kitchen and comfortable sitting. We were sorry to leave.

Very spacious and conveniently located

We enjoyed our stay at the Oviedo house. It is only a few blocks away from the Old Town. The house is spacious, fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. It has a nice, large kitchen that opens to the living area. There is a large laundry room in the back, two bedrooms with full baths are located on the first floor. There is also a library/family room and a powder room downstairs. A large bedroom with one full and two twin beds is located upstairs. It would be even better if there was an additional full bath available upstairs,next to the large bedroom. These nighttime trips down the stairs to the bathroom were a bit inconvenient. Also, the house smells a bit musty. Otherwise it is nice and clean and we would definitely come back and refer others to stay there.

I just wanted to thank you for an incredible experience at the Oviedo House...my daughter's bridal brunch was wonderful and everyone was impressed with the house, the furnishings and the overall experience. You had so many items that I was able to use in the set-up and I had many flashbacks to my childhood growing up in New Orleans in an old southern home. My husband usually has no opinion on places where we stay but he also loved the house and is now making comments about looking for property in Saint Augustine for part of our retirement--if the Oveido House experience can get my New York husband to consider living in the south then it is truly a magical place! Thank you again for your hospitality. Janette Johnson
