About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

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.

About Ed and Lexie

Hi, my husband and I have happily owned this house for 9.5 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.

What makes this house unique

We have everything you could possibly think of in the house and garage. This is our one and only home, not a 2nd home as many are, so the house is stocked. We don't want to have to go shopping for anything so why should you!

Excellent family friendly home and area!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Ed and Lexi's home! The house was well appointed, very clean and organized. They've thought of all the fine details needed for vacation including beach equipment and bicycles! St Augustine is a quaint beach town with great restaurants and activities for all ages. We will definitely be returning 😊 Paula and Dino Donnell

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is just that, a home away from home! The Owners are wonderful to work with. They provide so much. Ranging from towels and sheets to beach toys, bikes and even fishing gear! They have beach umbrellas and chairs. and just about anything you could need for your beach vacation! The area is perfect, not right in town or hectic. But close enough to get to anything you may want to do within minutes. We were able to walk to several restaurants without any issues and if you choose to have a drink it's perfect because there is no need to drive! I highly recommend this home. We plan to travel there again in the near future! And would like to make it a regular place to stay in between our Disney cruises!

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place to stay, and it was very close to the beach, historical St. Augustine, and Jacksonville. The beach was so close to the house, we just went back to the house for lunch or to refill our water bottles rather than our usual method of dragging heavy coolers full of supplies. We had plenty of room, and everything was immaculate. The kitchen was well-stocked with tools, gadgets, and anything I needed for cooking, and a Publix grocery store was just 2 miles away--easily accessible if I needed something. Traffic wasn't a problem, and the beach wasn't crowded at all. My husband and I are thinking of coming back late November/early December! I'm so glad we stayed here!

Perfect for much needed relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as promised. Short walk to the beach which wasn't too crowded and in a friendly neighborhood. Not in the middle of all the tourist but still close enough to get to town if you want. Pretty quite for morning coffee on the porch. We enjoyed the home very much and would rent again. I would recommend to anyone asking about a place to stay close to the beach.
