This adorable A-frame has its own private walkway, surrounded by red and yellow blanket flowers, white and purple morning glories and sea oats swishing in the breeze. Head to the beach to swim, surf, fish, or just go shelling. You’re sure to see flocks of pelicans breeze by. At dusk sit on your private deck and watch the dolphins as they take their nightly run up and down the channel in front of your cottage. After moon rise watch the ocean for showers of phosphorus sparkling on the waves as they crest.

In addition to a full kitchen complete with blender for those beach side margaritas, this cottage features a loft bedroom with a queen size bed. You will be stunned by the smashing view of the Atlantic when you open your eyes each morning. There is also a bedroom downstairs with a daybed and comfortable trundle bed. A full bath is readily accessible downstairs and an outside shower is also available for your convenience.

BEDS: Queen-size bed upstairs. Day bed with roll-out trundle bed downstairs. Sleeper sofa. Sleeps four comfortably.

7 DAY SEPT 2017 STAY

  • 5 of 5

THE HOST DARIN WAS VERY NICE AND HELPFUL DURING OUR ENTIRE STAY. THE A-FRAME WAS EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED. WE REALLY ENJOYED OUR STAY. THE DECK WAS WONDERFUL.

I WOULD GIVE THIS A 5 STAR RATING. HOWEVER, THE STAIRS ARE HARD TO NAVIGATE, BUT THAT'S BECAUSE I'M OLD. IF YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY--STAY HERE. ALSO, EAT AT HARRY'S-VERY GOOD.

Fantastic view !!

This cute little A frame home was perfect for my family of 3 and our fur baby. Everything we could have wished for was provided and the view can't be beat.

A wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage! The view is as spectacular as it appears in the pictures. The beach must be semi-private because there were NO large crowds, which was wonderful! I think my mom was about ready to move to Vilano Beach. The house was neat and tidy when we arrived, and we were pleased that towels and linens were provided. Darin emailed us instructions a few days before we arrived, and he just made staying there very easy. The wifi was excellent - no problem streaming anything on our iPads. All in all, this is a great house! I highly recommend it for a vacation in St. Augustine.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This turned out to be the best place to stay. We enjoyed staying here so much that we only went to town x2 while here. Just to sit back look at the ocean and listen to some good music was so relaxing . We had everything we needed and PUBlix a skip away. And the view from the loft... We will be back!

Hands down--best views of Vilano Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I ended our honeymoon at Dolphin's Run after staying in Charleston and Savannah. It was exactly the relaxing spot we hoped for. The A-Frame is adorable, and it is hands down the best view of the beach you can get. It sits closer to the water than any other house, and the deck facing the beach allows for 24 hour relaxation. Watch the sun rise, view dolphins in the afternoon, see a million stars--you get it all here.

I mentioned the views from the deck are fabulous, but you get the same gorgeous views from the lofted bedroom. Floor to ceiling windows allow for breathtaking sights no matter where you are in the home. With that being said, it's the perfect size for two, maybe two with a child, but you'd be pushing it to have many more than that. There is a very small bedroom with a twin bed and a pull out couch in the living room, so technically you can sleep 5, but you'd have zero privacy. 2-3 max, in our opinion.

The house itself could use a little TLC--it's a tad dated (bathroom, furniture, etc), but it's cute, clean, and for the price, you really can't get any better. Good water pressure in the shower, so there's that!

The property manager, Darin, was not only accommodating, but he was quick to respond to our needs. Within an hour of arriving, we wanted to add an extra night to our stay. It was late, but he continued to respond to our emails, and we were all squared up in no time.

We intended to spend more time in St. Augustine, but the beach house was so perfect that we spent the majority of our time on the deck. Fortunately, there is a Publix grocery store just down the road, and you can get everything you need there, including freshly made deli sandwiches, pizzas, salads, desserts, etc. No need to leave Vilano with everything so close at hand! With that being said, if St. Augustine is where you plan to go, it's just a short drive over the bridge.

We're already talking about our next trip to Dolphin's Run!
