60 steps to the beach from an easy path on one side and a 2 minute walk to the Inter-coastal Waterway on the other. This quiet but hip area of Vilano/North Beach is popular for surfing, paddle boarding, surf fishing, shark teeth hunting and much more. There are many great restaurants within minutes that you can either walk, bike or drive to. Our comfortable home is a 5 minute drive to the fun & activity filled oldest town in America, St. Augustine! The Vilano Beach pier is a 2 minute car drive away (or 40 minute beach walk) where you'll find a Publix Grocery Store and a mini outdoor mall. In the same area are a local Post Office, Bait & Gear store, a boat rental facility and gas dock, a local pub and more restaurants near and on the Intercoastal beach. A 20 minute drive to the home of the PGA at TPC Sawgrass, and a 2.5 hour drive to Disney World. There is an oversize King bed in the Master with a great patio to enjoy some magnificent sunsets, 2 twins in the middle bedroom and the 3rd bedroom has a Queen bed and a great library and both bedrooms connected by a Jack and Jill bathroom. The Garage has space for 1 vehicle and holds 2 adult bikes and 2 children's bikes as well as everything else you'll need to enjoy the beach including an abundance of toys for building sandcastles The bbq grill and dining table are in a shaded fenced in backyard.
Hi, my husband and I have happily owned this house for 9 years now and we live in it as often as we can. We want you to walk right in and feel right at home just like we do. Over half of our wonderful guests have stayed with us before, many going on their 6th and 7th years respectively. Any questions please do not hesitate to write us.
This is definitely home away from home! This was our first year staying at this house but it will not be our last! The description of this house doesn't do it justice it is everything they say and more. The owners are wonderful to work with and very quick to respond. We have only been home almost two weeks and already discussing going back!
I looked at this property two years ago because it looked so inviting, but went closer to home instead. This year, my wife and I decided we would go to St. Augustine as a new adventure. I came back to this property on Vilano Beach. This property is just as advertised...practically on the beautiful, uncrowded beach. The house is spacious, comfortable, and quite inviting. It is actually well-stocked with beach equipment, bikes, etc. The kitchen has everything you need...with the exception of food and drink, of course! It is a short drive to St. Augustine and everything it has to offer. Outlet malls are within a short drive as well. We were well-fed and well-libated at the numerous restaurants and pubs available. Harry's, Salt Life, Oasis, Li'l Margies, the Reef, Village Inn, Puccini's and the Red Frog are a few we enjoyed and can recommend.
Thanks, Ed and Lexie for opening your place to us. We had a great time and we can definitely highly recommend to others.

If you are looking for a peaceful getaway in the St. Augustine area, then this is the house for you! The owners are wonderful to work with - communicate promptly and articulately. The house is beautifully renovated - all the modern conveniences - and is a short walk to a residential section of Vilano Beach (in other words - it's quiet!). A short 10-minute drive will get you to the historic area of St. Augustine. They had all the items you need for the beach - towels, chairs, umbrellas, bikes, etc. so there is no need to pack your car to the gills. Publix is a right down the street for groceries and there are tons of local restaurants with amazing food.
Fully-furnished and stocked - everything was in perfect working order. Very clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds - lots of extra pillows, blankets and towels. Cozy couches, big TV, outdoor grill and table...they thought of everything! We stayed five nights and loved every minute of it! Not one complaint - highly recommend!!!
Ed and Lexie were fantastic to work with and coordinating the details of the rental was so easy. As for the house, we couldn't ask for anything nicer. The house layout has all 3 bedrooms upstairs (master's w/attached bath) and BR 2 & 3 sharing a "Jack and Jill" bath work well for our family of 5 adults. The house has a great open flow with the kitchen next to the dining area and open to the living room which made making Thanksgiving dinner a family event. The kitchen is equipped with everything anyone would need to make any meal. The weather was in the low 70s which made the attached deck with seating for 6 and gas BBQ was perfect for a lazy afternoon gathering. The location is just a 1/2 block away from the beach, a short drive to the grocery, service station, restaurants and the heart of St. Augustine is just a 5 mile drive. Ed & Lexie go above and beyond to make your stay perfect!!!
My husband and I spent a week in this beautiful home. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived in the driveway. Brunch on the patio was so relaxing and peaceful! This was exactly what we were looking for and we are looking forward to returning.
We visit Florida virtually every year and have planned, for many years, to spend some time at one of the coasts. At last, we finally did it and we are so glad we did! This home was fantastic. As the listing says, it is only 60 steps to the beach! What a change from the usual hectic Orlando break to spend some time on the coast walking along the beach!
The home was lovely. Felt like a real home from home! Very impressed. Also, the owners were great and all communications with them were helpful.
In the locality, there were a few bars/restaurants within walking distance. St Augustine is only a short drive away and is a great place to walk around. Really nice to take in some historic, interesting sights. Lovely places to eat there as well. We used Tripadvisor to select a few places. You have to try "The Chocolate Turtle" which is number one on that site. Unbelievable!!
We would definitely return to this home and would recommend it.
Great music concerts all year long at the St. Augustine Beach Outdoor Amphitheater as well as the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall(15 minute drive north on A1A). Also many fun outdoor markets in the area with the most popular being held twice a week at the St. Augustine Pier. In the Winter the St. Augustine Amphitheater area is changed into a Winter Wonderland with Ice Skating, snow showers and visits from Santa.
