House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5 to 6)

Come back to the Summer of '42 when life was simpler....

Welcome to our little house by the sea. Many of our guests have remarked that it reminds them of the little beach houses that were in place long before condominiums and seaside growth took off.

The house actually predates WWII, but was moved into place during the time that the Coast Guard had a presence nearby to defend against German U-boats active in the area. We invite you to use this historic setting to have morning coffee on the beach as the sun rises, move from front to back porch following the shade, cook out, swim, surf, shell, fish, watch the boats go by. The Usina bridge, a quarter mile south, will take you over the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway into St. Augustine (established 1565) for shopping, touring, fine dining, and entertainment. Take the time to relax and enjoy yourself with the simple pleasures of our little house at Vilano.

The fenced in yard is nice and the cottage is spacious for how small it looks from the outside. It was clean and had everything we needed in it. Perfect little getaway with our fur baby for our honeymoon. Thank you!

                                                                It was a lovely home and perfect for a few days away on the beach! It was foot steps away from the sand and the ocean, surprisingly quiet for being so close to a major road and the owners were friendly and helpful! I would certainly book the space again.
