St. Augustine cottage description

Come and enjoy this cozy cottage in the land of dolphins and pelicans! Enjoy the sounds of gentle breezes blowing in the palm trees outside your window, and the surf rolling up on the beach. You'll love the natural beauty of the still-unspoiled area of North Florida. You can walk along a peaceful, uncrowded beach and just relax, or pick one of the many activities nearby: para sailing, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing, boating, cycling, bird-watching, hiking or golf.

Historic St. Augustine is only two miles away, Jacksonville 45 minutes away, and Orlando is a two-hour drive.
This quaint, historic cottage was part of a group of houses built in the 1930's in this area of Vilano Beach. Originally a fishing village, the area was constructed by an aviator named Reiss, a colleague of Charles Lindbergh and founder of the St. Augustine airport. Used by military families during WWII (a German spy occupied one of these cottages), it later became a motel called the Pagoda.

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine:
                  The first time we traveled to St. Augustine and visited friends who had a cottage on Vilano Beach, we fell in love with the area. It was so different from other places in Florida in that it was less developed and more relaxing to us. The beaches are so beautiful and Vilano is not crowded. There is so much closeby - the historic parts of St. Augustine, which maintains its original architectural style; Guana State Park, where there are many trails for easy hiking; a gorgeous scenic drive up A1A North; and the beach is just 100 yards from our door.
