About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Beautifully decorated, Serenity Now Beach House lives up to its name! Conveniently located just steps away from the ocean to the east and the waterway to the west, it offers everything you need for the perfect vacation. You will find yourself relaxed and enjoying an authentic beach vacation from the moment you pull into the driveway!

Serenity Now is large and comfortable and easily sleeps 10. There are gorgeous beach views from within the home and plenty of decking for sunbathing and outdoor living.

Attractive hardwood flooring, wooden cabinetry, and the soothing neutral furnishings of Serenity Now provide the perfect setting for you to rest, relax, and rejuvenate. You will enjoy the open floor plan that allows all your guests to comfortably mingle. The overstuffed leather sofas are the perfect place to read or watch your favorite show on the HDTV while enjoying the ambiance of the decorative fireplace. Of course, scenic views of the ocean and surrounding area can be enjoyed through all the windows.

The kitchen is always the place where friends congregate and the kitchen in Serenity Now is sure to impress your guests! Granite countertops and stainless steel appliances add to the appeal and charm of this kitchen! The large bar area provides plenty of seating where quick meals, appetizers, or drinks can be enjoyed. All the utensils and dishes necessary for meal preparation are provided. The only thing missing is you! There is a large table inside to gather around or take your meal outside for open-air dining!

After a day of sun and surf, you can retire in the king-sized bed in the master bedroom. Guests will be just as comfortable as you as they enjoy the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. The kids will love the bunk beds in the 4th bedroom. There are 3 full bathrooms and 1 half bathrooms providing plenty of room and privacy for everyone to get ready for the day’s activities. There is even an outside shower for a quick rinse when coming in from the beach!

Convenience and comfort continue as Serenity Now offers free Wi-Fi. Check your email or make dinner reservations from anywhere within the residence. Be sure to update your status and let your friends know what a great vacation you are having. Share some of those memorable beach moments! There is also a full sized Washer/Dryer combo to make laundry tasks quick and easy! No need to venture out just to wash towels!

The 2 ocean view decks at Serenity Now are the perfect spots to relax and ease your stress. Lay back in one of our comfy loungers and watch the sun set over the sparkling Atlantic Ocean! Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to see dolphins as they travel the coastline!

While vacationing you will want to visit some of the many nearby attractions. St. Augustine has many sights of interest. Its deep cultural history can be explored by visiting museums, homes, and forts that kept pirates at bay. It is the nation’s oldest city and the brick-lined streets and horse-drawn carriages will charm you as you step back in time. A visit to the Fountain of Youth Archeological Park is the perfect choice for an outing. Drink from the legendary waters and acquire eternal youth! If you are a golf enthusiast you will want to visit the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Animal lovers will want to reserve a tour to the St. Augustine Wild Reserve to see their amazing white tigers enjoy a luxurious bubble bath! Anastasia State Park is conveniently close where you can rent canoes, sailboats, or kayaks. Watersport lessons are also available.

Amazing space!

  • 5 of 5

The living space is so open and great for a large group. The outside seating is perfect with an amazing view! Great for dogs as there is a fence but if you have a darter there is a break in the fencing allowing them to get out.

Beach location is so close absolutely amazing! If you have personnel that would struggle with steps it’s not the place for them but the steps are worth the view.

Our new home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

Lots of stairs. Don't recommend it for people who can't do stairs. Water is treated so it takes forever to rinse off and forever to get hot water. Besides that, we loved it and will go back. Pets loved the yard and the beach is close. Morning sun on the porch, nicely equipped, and surrounded sound in all rooms. See ya in August!

An excellent, well-equipped property close to the beach with a few flaws.

  • 4 of 5

"Serenity Now" has much that's positive: well equipped, comfortable, lovely views, close to the beach. On the down side: two substantial flights of stairs which are difficult for most older folks or those with knee issues; and the claim that it sleeps ten is accurate only if you have 4 tiny children or midgets who can sleep in a room dominated by two small bunkbeds. Why not be more forthcoming in the advertising or redo that room to sleep two adults? My wife & I (with our toy poodle) occupied the house for 4 weeks (with 2 family guests for 5 days) in January. The weather was mostly cold & windy, unseasonably so perhaps. Of course you can't blame the house for the weather. But Vilano Beach & St. Augustine are not warm weather locations for January & February. Friends who are there now report that the same weather continues. Another reason why, its attractions aside, we won't be renting "Serenity Now" again is that the rent (with the additional fees) has been raised from the $4800+ we paid in 2018 to about $6800 for the corresponding period in 2019. This makes it less competitive with other properties in the area & in Florida in general: the money could well be spent on a property in a warmer area. All this aside, it's a lovely house in so many ways & I can imagine the circumstances (better weather, more occupants, etc.) under which it would be reasonable value for the cost.

The house served its purpose for our family

  • 3 of 5

The house was large enough for our family and a good location. However I was a little disappointed with the kitchen supplies- most of the dishes were chipped, there were broken glasses in cabinet. The cleaning was not terrific, there was dog food behind the lamp in living room and I was sweeping up crackers as soon as we tarrived( not ours!) . We reported a broken bed and it was never taken care of.
