Overview

About the property

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.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at "The Little House by the Sea". The house was just as described, the access to the beach was perfect. It was like our own private beach and so many shells. My daughter and I spent most of our time shelling

Thank you. The Stefanelli Family

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our annual vacation just wouldn't be the same without a stay at The Little House.

Our family returns again and again for so many reasons. It's safe,clean,secure, peaceful, and truly a gem of a vacation spot. We enjoy the beach every day and either cook and dine in or head over the bridge into town for dinner out.

Thank you Daryl and Paddi for another great stay. We look forward to returning again soon

Peaceful Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 dogs stayed 6/11-15/2018 for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage was very comfortable and although we did not cook there, all the necessities seemed to be present. There were plenty of linens and towels too. The front porch was so pleasant with the sea breeze, and we spent much time there after getting sun earlier in the day. Publix is close but not too close, and many excellent places to eat within two miles, even without going into downtown St. Aug. The cottage is in a quiet residential area. We did not want to leave! I will absolutely book this cottage again, I think it is my all time favorite now. This place is absolutely adorable.

Cozy and comfortable. Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this little house tremendously. It was very clean and stocked with every thing that we needed.The beach was a stone throw away. We walked on the beach every morning and evening. The beach was not crowded at all and our dogs were able to go on it with us (on a leash of course). There were several restaurants within walking distance and a grocery store (Publix). Our favorite restaurant was Beaches at Vilano. The food and atmosphere was wonderful. We cannot wait to go back to the Little House by the Sea. We absolutely loved it!
