Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5 to 6)

Come back to the Summer of '42 when life was simpler....

Welcome to our little house by the sea. Many of our guests have remarked that it reminds them of the little beach houses that were in place long before condominiums and seaside growth took off.

The house actually predates WWII, but was moved into place during the time that the Coast Guard had a presence nearby to defend against German U-boats active in the area. We invite you to use this historic setting to have morning coffee on the beach as the sun rises, move from front to back porch following the shade, cook out, swim, surf, shell, fish, watch the boats go by. The Usina bridge, a quarter mile south, will take you over the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway into St. Augustine (established 1565) for shopping, touring, fine dining, and entertainment. Take the time to relax and enjoy yourself with the simple pleasures of our little house at Vilano.

Wonderful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at the Little House by the Sea for a number of years. It's like coming home. We love it! Nothing you could possibly want is lacking there. We truly appreciate being able to bring our furbabies along. That made our stay even more enjoyable. We'll be back!

Relaxing, beautiful, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely home and perfect for a few days away on the beach! It was foot steps away from the sand and the ocean, surprisingly quiet for being so close to a major road and the owners were friendly and helpful! I would certainly book the space again.

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute cottage with lots of charm. Love the close proximity to the beach and a short drive to the beautiful historic downtown area of St. Augustine. The perfect little spot to relax and read a book, walk on the beach, explore the Vilano Beach restaurants and leave the stress behind! We will be back!

The property was nice very quaint and very homelike

  • 3 of 5

The kitchen is very small not a lot of room to move around or have a crowd of people over.

Another stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE this little cottage as well as the neighbors and the owners. I can't think of a more perfect place to stay for a small group, that's why we have been staying here for the past 6 years!
