About the Property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Want a relaxed, uncrowded beach vacation? Go where the locals go- Vilano Beach! This one of a kind beach town is minutes from historic St. Augustine but feels like you stepped back in time.
Besides the miles of beautiful secluded beaches the town offers a fishing pier, a Surfside Park, water craft rentals for all budgets, parasailing, many fun parks and a children's playground. Sanddollar Retreat is a beautifully decorated townhome that you will look forward to coming back to in the evening. It is also walking distance to one of my favorite restaurants in St. Augustine, "Caps on the Water" the food and sunsets there are world famous. There is also Aunt Kate's restaurant and many other amazing choices for dinner or receptions. Vilano Beach is known for destination beach weddings because it is so secluded.

Now let me tell you about Sanddollar Retreat, as soon as you walk into this gem you will notice what remarkable taste the owners have. They have gone out of their way to make you feel comfortable and the beach theme is cozy and relaxing. There is a large fenced in back yard with a patio to enjoy your coffee in the morning and a new grill for your fresh catch of the day. The grill is there for you to enjoy, you just need to catch the fish.

The living room has cozy couches to relax in and watch movies at night on the large flat screen TV. The kitchen is fully equipped if you wish to eat in or there are many dining choices nearby.

The downstairs bedroom offers a comfortable full size bed and another flat screen TV to help you wind down the day. Upstairs the master bedroom has a king size bed and t.v., so this is a perfect unit for two couples or a family. There is also a large bathroom upstairs. Two couch's downstairs also pull out to comfortable queen size bed's. So this fabulous unit can sleep 8.

There is also a new washer and dryer if you want to wash any clothes while you are there.

Located on a scenic 5 minute drive north of St.Augustine, Florida. Sanddollar Retreat is just a 5 minute walk to the secluded Vilano Beach. Whether its shelling, surfing, fishing, watching the porpoise jumping year round or whale watching in the winter months, this is the place to enjoy the beach.
Alternatively have lots of fun in nearby St.Augustine, the newest nations oldest city, with its many attractions.
A convienent cab service to and from downtown is another great advantage, leave the car at home and paint the town red, for as little as $10-13.

Also close by is Guana State Park, 5 miles, Premium Outlet Mall for shopping, 11 miles, TPC Sawgrass, 15 miles, Ponte Vedra Beach with its spectacular homes of the rich and famous, 10 miles, World Golf Village, 18 miles.
