The Sundance, a luxury new oceanfront home; five star reviews, fall and winter booking discounts, sleeps 8

The Sundance is the perfect name, situated on a high beach dune with magical sunrises and sunsets. It offers a majestic view of the Atlantic Ocean with its private beach housing single family homes in Vilano Beach. What could be more perfect for a family gathering, or a romantic getaway. Take a stroll on the beach, watch the Dolphins play, or at low tide take a bicycle ride. Everyone will enjoy collecting shells, finding shark teeth, watching the award-winning sand castle being erected, or simply taking a swim on this mostly private beach.

Entering this craftsmen-decorator-styled beach home you will see a stylish designed kitchen. Glance at the glass

wall-to-wall sliders in both the living room and in each bedroom, excellent for ocean viewing. Admire the hand-cut glass stained window above the door. The open floor plan stretches from the spacious kitchen to the large covered oceanfront eat-in porch, great for entertaining and making your dream vacation complete. It's no wonder we have only five star reviews as we provide a wealth of amenities for your fun and relaxation.

Vilano beach is a community located two minutes from historical St Augustine, one hour from Jacksonville and two hours from Disney door-to-door. Within walking distance we have a brand new town center that holds a large grocery store , a fishing pier, and five restaurant ,most providing live music.

Wonderful Everything!!

  • 5 of 5

We (my mother, brother, sister and myself) rented this delightful house when we came to St Augustine for my niece's wedding at the beginning of November. There had been absolutely zero hurricane damage. The house is beautifully decorated but is still very welcoming and comfortable. The views, especially from the top floor, are incredible. The master suite is huge and has an amazingly comfortable bed. My grandsons came over to test it out and all three wanted to take a snooze in it :-) We were only there for three nights, but took advantage of the washer and dryer. Although we didn't do any cooking the kitchen has everything a person would need.

The location is perfect...far enough away from the crowds but a convenience store is a minute away and Publix 2-3 minutes. We discovered a great casual restaurant right down the street...Beaches at Vilano. I highly recommend this property!

Vacation perfection

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect property for anyone who wants to be right on the beach and very close to the action. I've never been to this particular area of Florida and I can't stress the wonderful location of this property enough! A very short drive brings you into historic St. Augustine, a gem of a town. The house itself is wonderfully updated; the kitchen is a showstopper! All bathrooms are clean and well-appointed. Samantha was a terrific host. I had forgotten the necessary codes and it took one simple and quick phone call to obtain this info. She was gracious and helpful, even providing a list of things to do to help us plan our week. I highly recommend this property for anyone desiring a stay in NE Florida!

Family Mini Vacay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in St augustine at this beautiful home although was short was simply amazing. The home is located on the beach. Amazing views from every room. The owner was very accommodating, and truly has the home setup with everything you may need. We enjoyed sitting on the outside deck that over looks the sandy beach, and grilling. While sharing stories as a family. Truly a gem of a find. We were in town for a cheerleading competition so we will definitely return to visit when we have more leisure time. The pictures do not compare to the views and how well this home is maintained. This owner truly cares about her guest experience...10 stars in my opinion. Thank you for your hospitality and assisting us on such short notice!!!! Truly amazing!!!!

Family enjoyed area, but will find another rental.

  • 1 of 5

This was our first stay at Sundance.

My family enjoyed the St Augustine area. The owners allow us to check-in early and allow us to stay later in the day until we need to catch our flight. For that we very appreciative!

To my surprise shortly after we got home I received an email from the owner, stating that we left this property in less than satisfactory condition. In fact, I was told that for only the second time in 14 years they would have to pay the cleaning company more to clean the place. Wow! If that's the case it’s time for a new cleaning company.

We were also billed for a broken screen door. I was told that the door was broken during my stay, so I should pay for it. This was unfair in my opinion. All four patio doors were either on backwards or very difficult to open. Not to mention the 2-3 inch gap between the house and the deck in which the door fell when it went off its track. If this door would have fallen the 6 inch onto the deck, this damage wouldn't have occurred. Drop any screen door 10 feet it’s probably going to break.

We were also told that we broke a ceiling fan. While i didn't walk around this rental and test every light and fan, I guess I should have.

This rental also charges for cleaning the home after you leave, not sure what the cleaning crew does for that fee. While I they may have needed to change the beds, vacuum, and do some light cleaning, i don't think what needed to be done would have take them 3 or 4 hours maximum.

This rental stated that it was remodeled in 2015, which are noticeable and nice. There many small things that requires attention, if you are going to set the bar high for the people that stay at the place. For example: front door , landscaping, closet with mold growing on ceiling, screen doors that slide easy and are installed properly, outdoor lighting in front of house that actually works.

Lastly, I did email the owners stating that I believe the findings were unfair. Receive no response.....Oh, but they did cash my security deposit check!

Owner's Response: Im so sorry you felt the need to leave a one star review. You emailed me after your stay thanking me and telling me what a great time you had. That must have been prior to me taking your security deposit! Yes we did take your security deposit. Frankly your damage was more than $250 You admitted to breaking it so why don't you think you should pay for it?? I did communicate with you prior and tell you, we talked about it, you told me it was OK. Frankly I'm surprised your surprised by it!!! I'm also surprised that you didn't think you left the property in shambles...we are local.. I was there when you left and saw the status of the property damage and treatment of home with MY own eyes... Yes it was the FIRST time in 15 years that i actually taken someones security deposit. You treated our home like "animal house". Were local, we stood by and watched...shocked and disappointed...such lack of respect for someones home....someone else's property. We were SO disappointed in you. Im so surprised the damage wasn't more. ( 4 nights of frat style partying ) Lights? Every light was on 24/7 for 5 days, guess the bulb gave out. Landscaping? we just had a hurricane, give time for the yard to come back. Screen, withheld hurricane winds, but i think someone in a drunk stupor ran into it. Amazing, how i have 5 star reviews from the people before your arrival, and 5 stars reviews from the people after you!!! I take this review as sour grapes, and am not mad at you for publishing such lies, instead i will pray for you. Please keep in mind, owners rate and review their tenants just as you rate and review us.

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

It was our second stay at Sundance cottage, and everything was absolutely perfect, as it had been the first time we were there. The house is large and beautiful, and provides everything one could need. The location is perfect: right on the beach, very quiet, and at the same time close to St Augustine. This beach is a wonder, miles long, and just a few people strolling it. We strongly recommend this cottage.
