Located on a scenic five minute drive north of historic St.Augustine, Florida. Secret Retreat Two is just a 10 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.

Secret Retreat Two is located conveniently within minutes of countless amazing restaurants, state parks, miles of the most beautiful and tranquil beaches you can find anywhere near, amazing historical sites, world-class shopping, and so much more. Local activities in the area include boating, biking, bird-watching, fitness, salt and freshwater fishing, whale-watching in the winter months, world-class golfing, hiking, parasailing, tennis, scuba diving, surfing, or just a blast at the beach. You will never be bored, but you will be pampered at the end of the day at Secret Retreat Two. Bring your flip flops and come see us!

Vilano Beach offers a variety of things to do, such as para-sailing and has many fun parks that you can visit. Local restaurants such as Cap’s on the Water and Aunt Kate’s are amazing choices for dinner or reception spots. The sand on the Vilano Beach is a coquina sand mixture which truly shows the essence of St. Augustine. There is free parking off the beach so there’s no need to pay to get in and then from there, you’re only a short walk away from enjoying the serenity that is known as Vilano Beach.

Alternatively have lots of fun in nearby St.Augustine, the newest nation`s oldest city, with its many attractions.

A convenient 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.

St Augustine's secret gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week and it was an amazing experience. The property manager is attentive to details and great to work with. The house is super clean, fully stocked with anything you would need located in a safe and quiet neighborhood. It's in a central location close to the beach, Publix and restaurants. We highly recommend this rental and will definately be back again!

You Don't Need A Thing, But Suncreen

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything!! We just got back from The Secret Retreat Two after vacationing with my parents and our kids. You honestly do not need a thing here! The house is stocked with everything. And this house was spotless. We are always leery about staying somewhere, but this house was immaculate!! Very quiet neighborhood. Ann & Michael were wonderful to deal with!! We will be back next year and maybe even at Christmas!!

Excellent house - open layout and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We rented Secret Retreat for a golf weekend with the boys. The house was great, had everything we needed. Great location as well, close to fantastic restaurants and the beach.

We look forward to renting the house again next year.

Annual Snowbird Haven

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th (or 6th?) year on Vilano for the winter, and this was our 4th (or 5th?) year staying in Secret Retreat. We book here every year now, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. This lovely single story, three bedroom, two bath home with a two car garage offers everything you might possibly want for even a long, three month stay. No detail is overlooked and the home is lovingly cared for by property managers, Anne and Michael. The home is spotless upon arrival and any minor property need during your stay is taken care of ASAP (even just a report of a too high to reach light bulb burning out get a response in less than 2 hours). Quick access to the beach, even after the hurricane last fall, is within a five minute walk or two minute drive. Grocery shopping, quaint and popular restaurants and even a place to get pedicures is available without leaving Vilano. The rental rates are reasonable for the area but your get so much more for the same rate over many (most?) other area rentals. Do yourself a favor and give Anne and Michael a call, even if this home is already spoken for, as they tend to all their properties in the same dedicated, constant fashion.

Secret Retreat Two

  • 5 of 5

It is rare to find a property where EVERY review is 5 Star. This was what most impressed me about the property. It met all our criteria - number of persons, pet friendly, proximity to beach. This property had it all, including personal attention by the property managers, Anne and Michael. We needed a "pack n play" for our little baby and they brought it over immediately. The property was very clean and neat. Kitchen was well stocked with all equipment. Wonderful living area and kitchen, and the patio with chairs, grill and privacy was an added plus. The closest beach access was closed due to recent visit of Hurricane Matthew, but there was another which was not too far. We loved the property and would gladly stay again.
