About Barb

We are B&B, Barb and Bob. We live in St. Augustine and we love Vilano and Sea Blast.

Barb purchased this house in 2014

Why Barb chose Saint Augustine

We love the Vilano area of St. Augustine because there is so much to do and we don't need to drive. The leashed dog can take a swim anywhere. We walk to the pier and he swims while we sit at the bar at Beaches and watch the sunset.

Sip your morning coffee, on the deck and watch the day begin.

Great Location and Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the month of January at Sea Blast and found the location in Vilano to be convenient to the beach, Publix, and St Augustine. We loved being able to walk to everything we needed including several great restaurants. The house itself is an excellent value with plenty of room and stocked well for cooking at home. We enjoyed sitting outside on the deck and could hear the ocean. Bob and Barb were wonderful to work with and kept in touch with us. They responded quickly to our questions and were very helpful. We would recommend Sea Blast to couples and families. We are thankful we were able to bring our pet with us. We had a blast at Sea Blast!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and hospitality shown by owner. We stayed just weeks after the hurricane and Barb's communication was excellent! We plan to visit and stay here again.

Owner's Response: Sea Blast guests are awesome! Everyone has a positive attitude, which makes Sea Blast a happy place. One can still have a great time even after a hurricane. Visit the chocolate factory, winery, alligator farm, which is much more than just that, sail a schooner, ride bikes to the historic district in addition to walking the beach at sunset and watch for the lighthouse to come on---or go climb the lighthouse----- There are so many unique experiences in St. Augustine.--year around

quiet, clean and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time here. We frequent Vilano beach once a year and are always looking for new, pet friendly lodging. This was by far the most relaxing time spent on Vilano. There is no beach front view but very quiet, clean, spacious and well stocked with anything you pretty much need. A couple blocks walk to the beach, being that we stayed Sunday through Thursday we pretty much had the beach to ourselves! Definitely would stay again!

Our family was there for a wedding in downtown St. Augustine and this was the perfect home and location. Such great amenities and extras for the beach, from the bikes to the wagons there to haul our beach gear. The owners of Sea Blast are excellent!

Owner's Response: Our guests expect to have some R&R when they come. We really focus on supplying as much as possible for them so that they don't have to spend their limited time on shopping for items that they need. We are happy when our guests appreciate all that is done for them behind the scene. The Sea Blast crew appreciates the way guests treat the house like a home. Sea Blast guests are the greatest!

Had a BLAST at Sea Blast

  • 5 of 5

Sea Blast will not disappoint!! My family had a wonderful stay at this lovely beach house. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood and walking distance to the beach, the pier (riverside), with grocery stores and a few restaurants nearby. The home is just lovely and the inside was very pretty and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed having meals at home. St. Augustine (the city) is just a few minutes drive away across the bridge. My family enjoyed our stay and it we were sad to leave. It was our first time visiting the St. Augustine area and we were glad that we had this beach house to spend our vacation in. We hope to be back in the near future!! Many thanks to Barb, the owner, who was a pleasure to work with!!
