Quaint 1 Bedroom in safe RV Resort

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location on A1A South and it was convenient to access other major roadways. The rental was clean and had the bonus of a washer/dryer. The owner was very responsive to questions. Would love to return to this location in the future.

Florida vacation

  • 4 of 5

The Mango Cottage was the perfect location for us to enjoy St. Augustine's sights and beaches, while researching the area's available real estate market. The rental had everything we needed, and the inviting beach decor throughout the cottage added a special touch for our stay.

Thank you Jaimee for our time at the cottage!

Happy with the Mango Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week at the mango cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As a family of four, our two young teen daughters used the extra space with the sliding door for their "room" and had their privacy while we still had plenty of living space. Had to drive to the beach, but there is a nice parking area about 1/4 mile south on A1a. Full kitchen with all the necessary supplies and a grill in the shed gave us plenty of opportunities to cook on site. Rental manager was readily available to answer questions and offer suggestions for local sites to visit. The complex where it is located is quiet and folks are friendly. I would highly recommend this rental!

Anniversary stay

  • 4 of 5

We celebrated our 28th anniversary at the Mango Cottage, it is relaxing and so cutely decorated, close to the beach and the old town of St. Augustine. I recommend the cottage for small families or a couple.

Really enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a cute little place for the two of us. Just needed s place to sleep. We never cooked in the full kitchen. We never took advantage of the large deck. It was decorated beautifully. Would definitely go back. The owner was very easy to work with. I would recommend to friends and family.

Con: no toilet paper! A must when renting a condo!

No number on the unit. Very difficult to locate when driving in late at night. I would recommend taking care of those two very important issues before your next guest arrives. Photo is very misleading. Have no idea why that photo at sunset would be used to describe the property.
