Overview

About the property

Spacious 3/2 end unit Town home sleeps 8 in beds!

You'll love My Florida Oasis in beautiful, historic St. Augustine Florida. Where else can you visit and be surrounded by beaches, waterways, a Spanish fort, the oldest house and oldest school house in the U.S.?

There's so much to do......and yet so peaceful. You'll be amazed!!

For most people, about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. Due to Hurricane Matthew and Irma our beach walkover was destroyed as well as other walkable access points. Because of this, you will want to drive to the beach for access . There are lots of beach access points in Vilano and they are only 1 to 3 miles away. Our charming, spacious, Intracostal waterway side, end unit town home has a fenced yard for your private enjoyment. It includes a small patio and large deck with pergola. Beautiful Florida live oak trees surround the home and often you can hear the sound of the ocean while enjoying the outdoor area.

Upstairs is the large, private master bedroom suite which over looks the two story great room. This spacious room has a luxurious orthopedic pillowtop king bed set and a twin trundle daybed (2 twin beds). You can turn on the overhead fan, open the window near the bed and listen to the ocean as you gently drift off to sleep. The master suite includes a dressing area with 2 closets, sink, and even a small ceiling fan. The bath area includes a tub with shower. You can bathe while gazing through the skylight at the moon.

Downstairs is a large bedroom with a king pillowtop bed, charming bead board ceiling, ceiling fan, armoire and closet. The bath, just around the corner, includes a whirlpool tub and shower for your enjoyment. The second downstairs bedroom is off the great room and has 2 twin beds, ceiling fan, vaulted ceilings, and beautiful windows overlooking the back yard.

The kitchen is fully appointed and updated. It includes a built-in microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and small eating island. You can cook to your heart's content, because there's everything you need, even a George Foreman grill! There's even a charcoal grill too.

The great room has wood floors, ceiling fan, dining area, a loveseat and couch, and plenty of ottoman space so you can kick up you feet and watch the HDTV with satellite service and DVD player. The home also includes secure wireless service so you can access the internet whenever and where ever you wish.

We have everything you need so, relax, move in and enjoy your stay!!!

Best deal in the Neighborhood for it's size!

About Lynn G. - Owner

Geoff and Lynn live in Vilano!! We can meet and greet you, if you like, and make your stay more comfortable. We're here if you need us. If you prefer, you can just use the code and use the keyless deadbolt to access the town home.

Lynn G. - Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Lynn G. - Owner chose Saint Augustine

We love the area, it has all the best Florida offers and then some. It's close to everything we'd ever want to do and it's not overly crowded. You can walk and bike ride and there's so much to see. We love the quaint peacefulness, and beauty of the area. There's nothing like being on a barrier island if you love being surrounded by water. Sunrises over the Atlantic; Sunsets over the intracoastal.

What makes this townhome unique

Many of the town homes in the neighborhood are like apartments. We loved this town home because it feels like home. It's light and airy, with a skylight in the upstairs bath, solar tubes in the living room, and lots of windows in the downstairs twin bedroom. Being an end unit it has a larger backyard so there's room for a large deck. We know you'll love it too, and you won't want to leave either! We have to remind ourselves.... we can always come back!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Most wonderful place – Vilano Beach’s “Short Walk to the Beach”



The "Short Walk to the Beach" is a perfect town home for family and friends. It's location is easy access to dining and marketing as well the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. We were there for the full moon and walked to/from the ocean and enjoyed a perfectly clear viewing of it's rising. The SWTB's accommodations offer anything a guest might wish to have at hand. From the kitchen side - the refrigerator is huge, new washer/dryer in adjacent space and having the flexibility of the dining room table and the counter/bar between kitchen and dining room allowed room to work on projects at table, and dine in addition to finding a place to perch and visit while cooking.



The large screen TV was perfect for the 'Florida Room' in addition to comfortable couches and oversized love seat. Adjacent to the Florida Room is one of the bedrooms with 2 beds and plenty of light on all three sides. The SWTB was immaculate when we arrived and had plenty of towels, blankets, appliances and anything we might need.



A special feature of SWTB is the garden area. There is a long garden/patio off the dining room's sliding glass door where a game of Bocee can be set up and enjoyed before accessing a wonderful raised terrace garden. Sitting higher than the yard level and the pergola overhead made for a tropical feel to time spent during dinner and after dinner conversation and relaxation. The garden was just coming into bloom and is certainly a wonderful area during the summer with the pergola providing overhead coverage from the sun in the afternoon.



Information and conversations with Lynn were the best part – we never felt like something we asked or needed to know was a problem and her replies were always immediate.



Certainly you will enjoy your stay at SWTB any time of year and this wonderful home's hosts. Crosby Sisters - Florida, NY, St Augustine, FL and St Louis, MO.

Very nice space for a family. Conviently located nearby grocery store and awesome restaurant, Cap’s on the Water. Large fenced in back yard. We really appreciated the photos being true to the actual space.

Townhouse was as described on VRBO. roomy, clean, comfortable, well supplied, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at My Florida Oasis and wish we had rented for longer. We were pleased on arrival to find the property as described, BR large and both King size beds were very comfortable, 3rd BR, has glass pocket doors with curtains to provide privacy (doors not shown in description). Kitchen and bathrooms were well supplied with everything needed (tip: check supplies out b4 going shopping :) ). The deck with Pergola was a nice place to have our morning coffee or evening cocktails. The Townhouse is in a quiet residential area and if you enjoy a walk, close to 3 restaurants, It's approximately 6 miles to Historic St. Augustine, we spent 7 of our 10 day stay in the Historic district and could have spent additional time. We also went golfing, deep sea fishing (husband hooked an approximate 15 ft. 300 lb. Great White shark), very exciting, have video to remember, but thankfully bit through hook and made his escape, would not have been able to keep as protected. Due to hurricane beach not accessible to walk to but just a short drive. Weather was awesome, unusually warm for time of year. The only issues we had was back/front could use some TLC, some deck chairs could use replacing, but also realize it's still there winter there, would have been nice to have TV in downstairs BR. Our damage deposit was refunded the day after we left. Lynn, the owner was always accessible and accommodating for questions or requests. Thank you Lynn, we definitely would rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Sandy, so glad you had a great stay. Very interesting story about the shark. Such an exciting experience. Spring flowers are now planted and blooming so looks much better even though we could use some rain. Hope you'll visit again. The Gray Family

The house was clean and comfortably fit all our family. All amenities were included, made you feel like you were at home. The beach was not too far away walking distance. We loved it and would definitely come back.
