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.

Little House by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times and love it. Our little dog loves sitting on the porch with us enjoying the ocean breeze. Short walk to the lovely beach that is never crowded.

Pure relaxation and happiness

  • 5 of 5

This is one of many visits (more to come). Our family loves the cottage. It is just the amount of space we need. We spend most of the time on the beach playing in ocean, shell hunting, taking pictures and fishing. It is located near grocery store and several restaurants -walking distance, near downtown historic St Augustine and only a short drive to places like Walmart. I have recommended to extended family.

The owner of the home is wonderful and her sister that assists her and the neighbor that helps them is great too.

Quiet, peaceful, easy access to Downtown. Great beach.

  • 5 of 5

We (2 Adults) with our 2 dogs (Sammi and Philly Cheesesteak) from Central FL for a week. We chose this place because it was off the beaten path and also because we used to live tear round at the Jersey Shore. In particular, spent many summers at Cape May Point which is a sleepy little town. We were looking to recreate as close as possible, that experience. This place did it and then some. House if very clean and walk to beach is seconds away. Great charm and decorated nicely. Bed very comfortable and almost everything is provided. You really only need to bring personals and some food if you decide to cook. We hope to return again as often as work allows. Truly a getaway where you can turn off your devices, enjoy the ocean breezes and some really excellent dining just a few minutes away. Thank you, Regina, Paddy and Darryl.

Another great girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Once again the Sea Glass Sisters have enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Little House.

We were blessed with good weather and the ocean gave up some of her stellar gems, sea glass❤

Regina brought us a loaf of poppyseed bread that was outstanding! Delicious with every bite. Thank you Regina for sharing!

The house is always clean, comfortable, and has everything you need. Steps from the sunrise on the east coast, our favorite way to begin the day.

Thank you Daryl❤❤❤

Cozy yet roomy, close to beach, and love the charm!

  • 5 of 5

Owner was super nice and accomodating and so was manager who lives next door but didn't even notice. Place was clean and historic with charm. Plenty of dishes, towels, blankets etc. I felt so relaxed there and so did the kids...they just wanted to go to the beach! Only request would be a gas grill and a hammock! But even without that, I am planning my next trip there again! Thank you for your sweet home!
