Relaxing Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Secret Retreat One. The home was very clean, spacious and well-stocked with all we needed. We were very comfortable and enjoyed Vilano Beach everyday we were there. My children never wanted to leave the beach. Ann and Michael were very helpful and attentive. We had a great staycation and hopefully we will be able to return next year and stay longer.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Secret Retreat One - a beautiful home meticulously cared for, comfortable beds, wonderful patio, and the managers are super responsive for anything you need (My mom is hot-natured and needed an extra fan to keep from freezing the rest of us out with the A.C.). My husband and I stayed here with my parents and my 2 kids and the floorplan works great to give everyone their own space. With our 3 kayaks, fishing gear, and beach gear, being able to use the garage was a HUGE convenience!

We cannot say enough great comments about our stay in Vilanobeach, Florida. Our villa was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The villa was well stocked with everything from beach towels, detergents, coffee to paper products. . The patio was lovely and the 5 minute walk to the private beach was great. We had a family reunion renting 3 properties from Ann and Michael Lydon who went above and beyond in accommodating our many needs. We have already booked for next year. Forgot to mention the chilled bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived.

Have stayed here several years in a row!

We travel to St. Augustine every March to work (virtually), play and relax in the warm weather. Our dog travels with us and Michael and Anne welcome our dog along with us! This can be a huge issue in trying to find a dog friendly rental, as our dog is definitely over 10-20 pds! The location is great. It is quiet. You can be on the beach in minutes - which is never crowded! Walk to restaurants - see the sunset! Ride bikes, visit nature preserves close by. Publix is within a 3 mile drive along with the now famous Beaches restaurant! Michael and Anne are very responsive if anything needs tweaking. Could not ask for nicer people!

Delightful Holiday Rental

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to rent a spacious, comfortable, well appointed home in a quiet neighborhood convenient to everything, this is it. This very well managed single floor, semi detached home is located just off the intercostal highway, one block from the beach, a short drive into St. Augustine and easy access to explore Jacksonville and other points north or south along the Coast. The house was immaculate (the cleanest rental we've experienced to date), the pictures on this site accurate and thanks to Anne and Michael, arrangements fast and easy. We will definitely look to stay here on our next trip to St. Augustine.

This was my family's 2nd visit to Secret Retreat One and we have added it to our favorites list. Ann and Michael are easy to work with and make the arrival easy. The location is perfect. We will be back again.
