Buccaneer Retreat is the perfect place for your next family reunion, wedding or big group vacation. It's got a private pool, boat dock, and room for 14 people -- all in a gorgeous custom-built house with over an acre of land. Please note, weddings require special permit.
You'll love outdoor living on our private pool courtyard, which includes a table and chairs for casual dining and plenty of poolside lounging space. And all of that isn't even including the large boat dock. The house is perfectly located just a few minutes drive to the beach or to the Mayo Clinic
The huge back yard opens to the St Johns river with large boat dock. This is certain to become your favorite spot at Buccaneer Retreat -- though it faces some stiff competition from the beautiful interior of the house! There's just so much to do out here, a nice mix of sun and shade, and entertainment for all ages. Oh -- did we mention the cushioned seating in front of the HDTV, where the guys can enjoy the game while still tending to the grill?!
When it's time to go inside, you'll be immediately charmed by the architectural details and décor of Buccaneer Retreat. This is not your typical beach house! Here you'll find unique built-ins, fine furniture, and state-of-the-art appliances. Every room is decorated beautifully. It's an unforgettable house, and we predict that you will treasure the memories of your time here.
The living room is a great place for the whole gang to congregate after a busy day at the beach or sightseeing in Jacksonville.
Just down the beautiful floors is the kitchen and dining area, with a big table banked by windows overlooking the bay. We know how hard it is to round up everybody for a sit-down meal, so Buccaneer Retreat gives you options, including eating poolside!
Note: Weddings require extra event fee. Please call for fee.
Buccaneer Retreat is a dream rental for your next Jacksonville vacation. Come live the good life.

We rented this property over Labor Day weekend for a reunion of our friends. It worked out very well because of the number of rooms, beds and living space. The property had not been used in a while, but the property manager came right over as soon as we<br/> got there to fix a problem with the water. We loved the location and amenities and would recommend it for large groups. Its not a five star resort, but suits its purpose very well!

An interesting structure in disrepair
An interesting structure in disrepair
I booked the Octagon House on the strength of its appearance in photos, location, and price point. On arrival, we were perplexed to find the majority of light bulbs out, two blown circuits, nonfunctioning air conditioning during a heatwave, a nonfunctioning box fan, and strongly sulfurous tap water as if the property had been shuttered for months. While the property manager was responsive in replacing the bulbs and performing other repairs, our overall impression was that this property needs to reinvent itself before it can compete in this market. Setting aside the maintenance issues we encountered, the furnishings at Octagon House demonstrate a lack of consideration for guest comfort bordering on contempt. The house is brimming with beds, but all of them give every apperance of junkyard acquisitions. The enormous master bed suite ultimately amounts to a dirt-cheap, well-worn futon mattress laying on plywood. My back finally went out after our third night on it. Filthy bedspreads and a roach problem only added insult to injury. Faucets and showers also required deep cleaning after a long life of serving up poorly treated well water. We encourage the owner to either seek guidance on furnishing upgrades or sell this property to someone who might at least make it habitable.

There were not enough linens for showers for all that the house accommodates. The sheets were clean but there were no blankets and the bed spreads were all dirty and stained. There is a mold problem in the basement that caused our son's breathing to have problems. The bathroom walls are dirty. The leather couches are filthy. The deck is splintering. The clothing washer has such low water pressure that it doesn't get the laundry clean. This place was a BIG disappointment. We needed to leave early for our son's unexpected surgery, and the rental company was not willing to refund us in such an emergency.

About the owner: My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now I am managing other people's properties in St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 500+ vacation rentals. We booked over 10,000 rentals and received over 3,000 guest reviews in 2011. You can find some of these by going to search engines and typing in Steve Milo or 'Vacation Rental Pros' . Thank you!
Why the Owner Chose Vilano Beach:
And the best part of it all is the location. You're within a short car ride of historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in America filled with pedestrian walkways with shops, cafes and first class restaurants. We are also close to Daytona Beach and the Daytona speedway and museum. We are also only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Orlando and Disney World/Universal/Sea World as well as 1 1/2 hour to the Kennedy Space Center. Our rental is also a short car ride to Ponte Vedra Beach and PGA golf Course and TPC as well as Jacksonville with the brand new St John's Town Center (with a Costco), Avenue Mall and River Front Arcade. There is also a minor league baseball team and a professional football team and stadium.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach is wide and unspoiled here by large crowds. Kids will spend hours exploring, and their parents and grandparents will love discovering new areas to relax and reconnect If you're ready for uncrowded beaches, balmy weather, clear skies, and Florida's natural wildlife, come visit us today!
