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.

Peaceful Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 dogs stayed 6/11-15/2018 for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage was very comfortable and although we did not cook there, all the necessities seemed to be present. There were plenty of linens and towels too. The front porch was so pleasant with the sea breeze, and we spent much time there after getting sun earlier in the day. Publix is close but not too close, and many excellent places to eat within two miles, even without going into downtown St. Aug. The cottage is in a quiet residential area. We did not want to leave! I will absolutely book this cottage again, I think it is my all time favorite now. This place is absolutely adorable.

Cozy and comfortable. Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this little house tremendously. It was very clean and stocked with every thing that we needed.The beach was a stone throw away. We walked on the beach every morning and evening. The beach was not crowded at all and our dogs were able to go on it with us (on a leash of course). There were several restaurants within walking distance and a grocery store (Publix). Our favorite restaurant was Beaches at Vilano. The food and atmosphere was wonderful. We cannot wait to go back to the Little House by the Sea. We absolutely loved it!

Little beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot for a little beach cottage. This little cottage had everything we could ask for right next to the beach. Easy to find, close to everything in town. We plan on coming back.

Guys fishing trip success!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at the little cottage and this time I brought 3 of my closest friends for a weekend fishing trip. The cottage was better equipped than I expected and had everything we needed to focus on fishing and relaxation. The house was ready and clean upon our arrival.

Cannot wait to return with my wife, child and fur babies.

A beautiful cottage nestled right next to the beach

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage nestled right next to the beach. We had a wonderful stay at this cottage it was Located just a stones throw away from the beach which really convenient for us to get up every morning and watch the sunrise . The cottage was Quaint and had a 1940s feel to it, plenty of room for us and our two kids and it was located just minutes away from Saint Augustine but, yet far enough away so we are able to miss all the traffic that Saint Augustine has. Perfect!
