Six grandchildren, three great grandchildren. Purchased Unit B in 1984 for our vacation place, purchased other two units 1994, renovated the whole building and moved into the Unit C in 1995 and permanently lived there until 2010 and although still our main residence we moved inland to a one level home.
Sally purchased this apartment in 1994
We had a wonderful vacation in St. Augustine this past September and staying in this beachfront rental made all the difference. Being able to walk right onto the beach from the rental was fantastic.
The rental itself was in great condition upon arrival. We had one small problem with an outside door handle that was handled within 24 hours of calling Sally. Although we weren't able to meet Sally face-to-face, she was very personable over the phone and was very concerned that our stay was as perfect as could be.
The sad part of this review is that, at the time of this review, hurricane Matthew is bearing down on the Florida coastline with St. Augustine in it's sight. We hope that Sally's property survives the storm as we would most definitely consider renting from her again.
Sally, you are in our prayers and please keep us informed after Matthew passes.
Surfside Retreat says it all. Great view - nice, clean accommodations - a great vacation spot.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended it a night. We will definitely be returning. The beach is wonderful and just steps away. We had dinner on the deck listening to the waves and also walked to Beaches Restaurant twice. The booking team and owner were very friendly and accommodating as well. It is a $10 cab ride to St. Augustine which was very fun too!
My husband, my two children aged 9 and 10, and I, spent a wonderful week at Surfside Retreat Unit B. It was clean, well appointed with wonderful cookware, and comfortable appointments. It had a wonderful direct walkway to the beach, which was one of the nicest stretches on Vilano Beach. Sally was a wonderful hostess, who called to make sure we were comfortable and who is extremely nice and hospitable. The deck is so convenient, and private even though the house has 3 units. The washer and dryer in the building outback are very convenient and nice. I would highly recommend renting this property for a terrific summer vacation.
What a wonderful place for a beach retreat! As soon as you walk in the door you feel like you're at home. The apartment is beautifully decorated and equipped with all the supplies (kitchen utensils, towels, dish soap, appliances, etc.) that you may need. The owner takes great pride in her properties and it shows. If something is missing, she gets it right away. My family and I spent the days in St. Augustine but enjoyed the beach settings in the evenings. The location is great, near the historic district, grocery store and restaurants. I highly recommend Surfside Retreat for stays in St Augustine.
We visited this rental for a quick little getaway during our busy summer schedule. It was everything and more we were hoping for. Sally was a pleasure to work with and makes sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay! The beach is just over the little walkway deck so it was beyond perfect for us to walk back and forth when we needed to. We have a one and a half year old daughter so going to the room from the beach when she needed a nap was not difficult at all. There's your own side yard that is fenced in which was perfect for us to let our dog out in from time to time. She loved the beach as well. The beach is dog-friendly and we met several other pups during our stay. There will probably be neighbors in the same house, in Units A and C. We spoke to ours several times during our stay and they were the nicest people ever. We can't wait to book this rental again! We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to St. Augustine on Vilano Beach.
