Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Close To Beach

Surfside retreat is a classic old florida beach cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and the characteristic beach cottage feel from white and blue interior, beadboard walls, ceiling fans and charming cottage features. But it also has large adjoining open spaces for entertaining, dining and lounging more consistent with the other modern upgrades of a today’s beach cottage (dishwasher, flat screens, modern fully equipped kitchen and wireless internet).

The sophisticated yet inviting white-on-white décor with blue accents sets the tone for the rules of the cottage: relax, relax, relax. The comfortable couches and chairs, multiple dining spaces, and open common spaces invite conversation, games, and kicking back following a day at the beach across the street. The outside spaces include a rose arbor with intimate shaded seating, and outdoor dining provide the setting for kicking back, whether day or night. The stroll from the beach, followed by a quick cooling outside shower as an option, means that ‘going to the beach’ does not require hours of packing up the gear!

It is the perfect getaway for a family beach vacation that is near grocery stores if cooking is your thing and near restaurants if the cook is on holiday, too. Old town st. Augustine is just across the a1a bridge to the downtown area of st. Augustine. Off-street parking for four cars is convenient, too, at surfside retreat.

Please contact owner for monthly pricing.

Very cute, cozy, and super close to beach.

  • 4 of 5

We had four adult women staying at the home and we had a wonderful time. It was the perfect spot for us to catch up, take walks on the beach, and explore the Saint Augustine area. The only downside (and it's minor) is that both bathrooms are connected to bedrooms. It's inconvenient when you have people staying in the other rooms and the bathrooms are very tiny.

Wonderful stay, perfectly situated!

  • 5 of 5

The Surfside Retreat is the perfect place to stay when visiting St. Augustine. Located in Vilano Beach, and just steps from the beach, we could not have picked a better location. Over the bridge is historic St. Augustine so we were right in the middle of all the fun. The home is nicely decorated (beach style), with three bedrooms and two baths. She has plenty of towels and items for the beach, a fire pit in the back yard and even an outdoor shower so you don’t track sand inside. The kitchen has all the basic necessities to cook as well. Our family enjoyed staying here and they are pet friendly! Just a cozy comfortable beach house, close to everything, and you feel right at home when you get there!

Surfside Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to this little retreat. It is only a short walk across the street to the ocean. The outside was a little rough, but the inside was beautiful! There were a few minor things that need addressed, like only one side of the grill worked and there wasn't much gas to run it. We loved being able to cook breakfast every morning and supper a few evenings. The beds were very comfy. There were plenty of towels, including beach towels. This retreat included books, games, Xbox and a few movies. It was very welcoming. We would definitely recommend it to others!
