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.

The property was nice very quaint and very homelike

  • 3 of 5

The kitchen is very small not a lot of room to move around or have a crowd of people over.

Another stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE this little cottage as well as the neighbors and the owners. I can't think of a more perfect place to stay for a small group, that's why we have been staying here for the past 6 years!

Little House by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times and love it. Our little dog loves sitting on the porch with us enjoying the ocean breeze. Short walk to the lovely beach that is never crowded.

Pure relaxation and happiness

  • 5 of 5

This is one of many visits (more to come). Our family loves the cottage. It is just the amount of space we need. We spend most of the time on the beach playing in ocean, shell hunting, taking pictures and fishing. It is located near grocery store and several restaurants -walking distance, near downtown historic St Augustine and only a short drive to places like Walmart. I have recommended to extended family.

The owner of the home is wonderful and her sister that assists her and the neighbor that helps them is great too.
