Overview

About the property

3BR, 2BA Oceanfront Luxury Condo Near St Augustine Town Center

Kick off your shoes and forget your workday worries. This recently remodeled oceanfront condo looks out onto quiet, never-crowded Vilano Beach. On the first floor, you simply have to slide open the lanai doors, grab a beach towel, take a few steps across the dune boardwalk, and sink your toes into one of Florida's nicest shelling beaches. If you're an early-bird, enjoy an early morning cup of coffee on the boardwalk sitting area and watch the sun rise and the dolphins play.

When you want to take a break from sunning, swimming, and ocean-gazing, there's a warm-water outdoor shower to rinse off the salt and sand. Hang out on the patio, enjoy surround-sound TV with the fireplace going, or work a puzzle at the 6-top dining table. Being only a 7-unit building with private beach access, you'll have plenty of space and quiet time.

Each bedroom has a 1080p HD TV with 140-channel Xfinity Comcast cable, including music channels. And each bedroom and the LR and DR all have tabletop electrical plugs with USB 1/2.4v chargers for all those electronic devices we know you don't leave home without.

The kitchen is stocked for cooking or entertaining, and the stainless steel GE Profile appliances will keep your meal prep and clean-up in good stead.

There is plenty of off-street parking for you and your visitors. With Vilano town center a 2-block walk from the condo (by beach or A1A/Coastal Highway), you have ready access to restaurants, a Publix grocery store, 2 surf shops, a convenience store, and other amenities. And the condo's location is 2 miles from downtown (crowded) St Augustine -- fantastic town, rich with history, but when the sightseeing is done for the day, take the short intracoastal bridge crossing back to your well-appointed, quiet Vilano Beach hide-away and put your feet up.

The owners look forward to your stay with us this year - and for years to come. Feedback is both welcome and appreciated, as we're always looking to make your stay more memorable! Having lived overseas for 10 years & vacationed in many places ourselves, we tried to take what we loved and found memorable in other places and put that into this home. We hope you find it as enjoyable and charming as we do.

About Neal McCall

My partner, Patrick, and I have lived all over the world, settling down in St Augustine in 2015. We wanted an oceanfront home, but with 8 dogs (and 2 very patient cats), we needed a yard. So we live in World Golf Village and have, instead, purchased this oceanfront condo for use by us, our families and friends, and by you!

Neal McCall purchased this condo in 2016

Why Neal McCall chose St Augustine

The sparsely-populated beach, direct access to the ocean, and ample parking were all selling points for Patrick and I.

What makes this condo unique

Being only a 7-unit condo, built by a luxury developer in 2006, with strict zoning in Vilano Beach, this area will remain 'under-developed' and this property quiet, peaceful, and up-market.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Neal and Patrick thought of everything! The condo is beautiful. It was spotless and felt so homey. There were so many great touches. You guys are the perfect hosts. All you need to bring is your bathing suits. Can’t wait to go back.

Wishing I were still on vacation at this condo! Still dreaming of sharks' teeth and coquina!

  • 5 of 5

This three bedroom condo is much more spacious than I thought it would be--the photos don't do it justice! It's tastefully decorated, with a very well-appointed kitchen and extremely comfortable beds. The master suite is roomy, with a huge walk-in closet and large comfortable bathroom. My husband and I, and our three adult children and their guest were all very comfortable during our week at this Sea Crest condo. Despite clouds from Tropical Storm Alberto at the beginning of our week, we had mostly sunny mornings and lots of time on beautiful Vilano beach before the afternoon showers commenced. We enjoyed watching the storms roll in and out from the covered patio which faces the ocean. It's a downstairs unit that gave us easy access to the beach, as well as to the dog-walking area. The owners were kind enough to leave treats, a bed, and an extra leash for our dog, too! The seafood restaurants in the area are wonderful, with this year's winner being the Beaches Grille, which is in walking distance. The shrimp was to die for and the frozen margarita there was fantastic! Thanks for being the hosts with the most, N & P! I would definitely reserve this space again for our family--in a heartbeat.

simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time celebrating my husband’s 40th birthday with a relaxing beach weekend at Neal and Patrick’s condo. Our dog, Murray, had his first trip to the beach and absolutely loved it too! The condo is beautifully decorated, clean, warm, inviting, and most of all filled with all the essentials. Neal and Patrick thought of everything! Even the bath towels are soft (it’s the little things!) and the bed was super comfy! It was quiet and peaceful and we were able to enjoy the beach as well as relax on the patio overlooking the ocean and listen to the waves crash and feel the cool breeze. The condo was a perfect little trip for us and we highly recommend! Thank you Neal and Patrick! I loved all the driftwood around the condo and the mermaid pictures hanging in the hallway. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Carly, Russell & Murray

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was even better in person. Clean, quiet and the view was beautiful. We were welcomed with a card and even our dog, Allie had a gift basket and her own card. Our boys loved being able to share a room at night and watch a movie while Mom and Dad enjoyed a drink on the patio listening to the ocean. The beach access couldn't be better just being able to walk right down. We were able to cook breakfast and see dolphins. I was actually sad leaving and wanted to stay forever :) We definitely would love to come back soon as it is just a hour and change from our home. I fell in love with the little beach town of Vilano. Thank you Neil and Patrick..your home is amazing!
