Beachside Bungalow resides in Vilano Beach, on Veterans Island. No matter where you are out here, it’s just seconds to the beach. This small, cozy home has 2 bedrooms, and 1 and a half bathrooms. Very beautifully decorated, with comfortable furniture and great colors, Beachside Bungalow is the kind of place you will tell your friends about.
Vilano Beach sits just outside the downtown historic area of St. Augustine, cross the bridge and you’re there. And if you’re coming from that way into town, don’t miss a drive down the magnificent Magnolia Street. From there, nearby attractions will include The Old Jail, The Fountain of Youth, The Great Cross, Castillo de San Marcos, St. George Street, and more. St. Augustine itself central to the best of Florida, with day trips out to Tampa, Orlando, Daytona, Ocala, Cape Canaveral, Jacksonville, and more.
Vilano Beach itself is a great place for shell hunting. Start at the southern tip, and head north towards Ponte Vedra, through some very secluded beaches that don’t get picked over as much. You can watch dolphins in the bay, spend the day fishing, boating, jet skis, and endless other beach and water activities.
Beachside Bungalow is a pet friendly rental home, for small animals. We allow for a maximum of 2 dogs. The house is no smoking indoors, and if you do smoke outside, please do not litter the yard.

Before we even got there we obtained keys and other pertinent information from the rental agency and they could not have been more helpful or personable. We stayed from May 8th to the 15th. What a perfect location for our purpose, close to St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra. My first impression upon entering was how clean the house was. Kudos to the cleaning staff. The house is so pretty, the bed was comfortable and the pillows were great. The screened in porch was basically my spot, I even napped on the comfy sofa out there. You cant see the ocean but you can hear it and that is enough for me. When you do go to the beach it is a short easy walk.. and the shells... oh my! The local grocery store is a short drive. Not to mention several really good restaurants very close by, I recommend Caps on the water and the Kingfish, I had really good sushi at the Kingfish. Of course Aunt Kate's is good too, they had some great fried oysters. I have booked quite a few properties through HomeAway and this was the best so far. Thank you to the owners, I can certainly see why you love it.
THOROUGGHLY ENJOY OUR ST. AUGUSTINE VISIT. THE HOUSE IS BEAUTIFUL AND COULDN'T ASK FOR MORE. VERY COMFORTABLE AND ACCOMMODATING. THERE WAS A LITTLE MIX UP WITH GETTING MY PACKET WITH NO RETURN CALLS WHEN TRYING TO CHECK IN AND HOPE THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN VERY OFTEN. NEVER RECEIVED THE PICK UP INFO AND HAD TO TRACK SOMEONE DOWN FOR 2 HOURS. BUT ALL WORKED OUT IN THE LONG RUN.
Thanks for your review, I am happy that you enjoyed the home. I checked your reservation and you were sent all check-in instructions the same day you reserved the property. I am sorry that you got confused and misplaced the emails that you received.
The Perfect Little Getaway
We stayed July 1st-8th, 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed every minute!
A precious little bungalow that is an easy 2 min walk to the beach. (~1.5 city blocks)
You have the option of sitting on the open deck with full sun access or the screened in porch which makes for a great lounging area outside without the hassle of bugs.
The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials. We will definitely be returning!
Some potential renter notes:
1. Staying at this location involves 2 sets of stairs: Accessing the beach and in the house.
2. The walk to the beach does include crossing A1A. However, we never had any issues with traffic.
3. Closest restaurants: The Reef, Aunt Kates, and Cap's On the Water. (All within 5 min)
4. Distance to nearby places: Historic St. Augustine (15-18min) Publix (5min) BP gas station (4min) Kyles Seafood Market (14-16min)
Thanks for the great review!
Cool, Clean and Comfortable
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this private tree house hideaway! Everything was immaculate, and the owners anticipated our every need, from fluffy towels for bath and beach, to a more than amply stocked kitchen. We highly recommend booking this one for your next Saint Augustine vacation.
Thanks for the great review! You are welcome back anytime.
Lovely Home but had flea problem
We fell in love with this cute, nicely decorated home. Near beach and quite area. We didn't realize they accepted pets. There was a pretty bad flea infestation. We contacted the management company and they had someone come straight out to spray but if anyone has ever had a flea issue they know it is very hard to get rid of them. The exterminator was able to cut down on the amount of fleas but they were still pretty bad. My son had bites all up and down his legs. We probably won't stay here agian because they allow pets. If you don't mind the risk and have an animal it would be a great place. All in all a good week minus the pests :)
Your visit was in May and it is now July sorry you had a problem during your stay. As soon as you brought the flea issue to our attention it was dealt with promptly. Many have stayed at this home since your departure with no issues. We are happy to hear that you fell in love with Beachside Bungalow. It is a great place to vacation!
What a pleasant surprise. This home offers every luxury of home. The listing agent wasn't sure what supplies would be in the home other than start up stuff, but we found there to be dish detergent, laundry detergent, basic pantry items, coffee and filters and beach chairs. The quality of the furnishings was excellent. From the pots and pans to the linens we were really satisfied with our stay.
