About Kitty Pursley
Oviedo House is not the typical 'Vacation Rental'. This is the house that a large family grew up in and we want to keep it in the family. The picture was taken a couple of years ago and has all 7 children with our mother. We have moved all over the country (Seattle, California, Kansas, and Florida - but not St. Augustine) and still come home to St. Augustine to spend time. Now our kids, who have kids of their own, also come and enjoy all the things to do in St. Augustine. Mostly we just love to come home. The house is filled with so many memories.
Kitty Pursley purchased this House in 1956
Why Kitty Pursley chose Downtown Historic District
Oviedo House is our family home and not the typical 'vacation rental' bought as an investment. As we moved on with our lives we wanted to keep the house in the family and left the house with most of the items we grew up with. It has a real 'home' feeling when you walk in. Our picture wall in the hall way has many generations and you can get a sense of the closeness our family has for each other and Oviedo House.
What makes this House unique
We strive to make our guests stay as comfortable as we can. If there are any specifics that you would like, we try and make it happen...Special things for birthdays, weddings, etc. With the addition of the 'Dakota Suite' & 'West Wing', the house is big enough to have 18 guests comfortably enjoy the house or can be split up for from 4 in each Suite and up to 10 in the main house. Even though Oviedo House is a large home, it is even very comfortable for just 2 people. We have everything you need to keep working or in touch with everyone. The house is equipped for wireless with high speed cable. It is close to the historic district and one can walk most anywhere they want and it is a very safe neighborhood. Come enjoy our house.

Great time near historical district of St. Augustine
Our family of Senior siblings had a wonderful stay at the Oviedo House near the historical district of St. Augustine. The home is very comfortable and easily handles a large family. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are most comfortable and porches are great gathering places.
We walked to all of the historical places. We could see the lighted dome of the Memorial Presbyterian Church from the front porch of the house. We were fortunate to get a tour of the church one day. A perfect location for a reunion.
Robert, We are so glad you had a great time in St. Augustine while staying in Oviedo House. A large family grew up in this house and it holds so many good memories for us, we enjoy knowing that it can be a part of memories for our guests who stay there. Stay safe through Covid19 and hope you join us again in the future. Kitty
An All-around Great House!
I arrived to a beautiful home decorated for Christmas including electric fireplaces and twinkling lights burning. It was the perfect place for our annual family vacation within walking distance of all the St Augustine attractions. We parked the cars and didn't need them until we left.
The house is spacious, the beds comfortable and there are plenty of bathrooms. Very clean with nice towels and linens. Our whole family loved it!
Julie, Love sharing our home with your family. It has built years of memories for my family and hopefully it will bring a lot of memories to your family with your stay in St. Augustine. Hope you return. Kitty
A great place for a family stay
The house is more beautiful than I saw in the pictures. We were a group of 23 family members for a wedding. The house was perfect for our group, including the carriage apartment. It is perfectly situated within walking distance to a lot of places
Thank you for your review. We are always trying to improve Oviedo House and I will try and update some of the pictures. It is a wonderful house and great location. Glad Oviedo House could add to your memories.
Excellent place to stay!
Our stay was amazing! The house is immaculant! So much space for everyone to move around. The only complaint I would have is it seemed like the hot water heater had a hard time keeping up with our giant family. Other than that, amazing! Couple block walk from downtown and right around the corner from Georgie's Diner, which has amazing gyros.
Charles, thank you for the kind words. A few years ago, Oviedo House changed from hot water heaters to an "on demand" system so that there would be no problems with hot. water. The only comment I have received since that change is that it takes the hot water a long time to make it's way through the pipes depending on which bathroom you are using. When you have a problem or question, please call the owner or management company so they can address the problem. We want you to have the best stay possible.
Historic Vacation Home -
We rented this Beautiful Historic House in May 2019. This home is charming, There is plenty of room and space that 14 people are not stacked on top of each other. We were lucky enough to have one of the people who grown up in the house staying in the apartment behind us and gave us the History on the house.
This house is very comfortable and makes you feel right at home.
I did my review but the wasn't finished and accidently hit summit. (my computer is a touch screen and I Was showing my husband) I wanted to mention how easy and helpful you are to work with and answered all my questions so that my trip was a huge success. and when we return to St. Augustine, if this house is available we will for sure rent it again.
Is there anyway you can add that to my review or can you delete my review and let me redo it? Let me know please..
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We love sharing our home so that it can create memories for others like it has for our family. So happy that Rodney and Freda were there to share the history. Hope you come again.
Oviedo House is on a quiet brick street just a couple of blocks from Flagler College. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the front porch and watch as the students walk to class!
