Great little hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great get away to St Augustine and were happy to find Sandcastle Hideaway! The condo was perfect for two couples! The condo was exactly as the pictures showed and was very clean and well kept. We appreciated being able to take our dog as a bonus. The condo was a quick walk to the beach and a short drive to town and groceries. We'd highly recommend Sandcastle Hideaway as a great place to stay. Michael and Anne were great to deal with and quick to respond to any emails or calls. We highly recommend it!

My family and I stayed at the Sandcastle Hideaway and found it very accommodating. Clean and tastefully decorated. The best part was knowing that the property manager's, Anne and Michael, are superb to work with. They are responsible and accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to others seeking a nice quiet vacation.

Our stay At Sandcastle Hideaway was quite enjoyable. We were an easy drive away from town center and a short walk to the beach. We decided to stay an extra day to get in more of the sites and entertainment. Restaurants were wonderful! (Don't order Gumbo if you are from Louisiana, you will be disappointed.) The sun porch was an added comfort. We could drink our coffee and watch the birds flying in and out. Quiet, peaceful area to stay. Thanks to Anne and Michael for making it a good trip!

Cozy, Comfortable and Carefree

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a nice to place to stay near St. Augustine, Vilano Beach is a great choice. The drive east across the Usina bridge is just gorgeous and heading west places you right in the center of all the cool things going on in the city. While a lot of exciting things are going on in the city, Vilano is peaceful, quiet and beautiful right by the ocean. Choosing to stay in one of the properties managed by Anne and Michael makes your stay even better because the home is always comfortable, immaculate and well maintained.

Sandcastle Hideaway is a lovely home. It is clear that the owner has put a lot of love and attention into the furnishings and the decor. The bedrooms were roomy and comfortable as was the sleeper sofa. The Florida room is so nice to sit in to relax and enjoy the beautiful gardens surrounding you. And the walk to the beach is literally 5 to 10 minutes. I highly recommend this home to a couple for an extended stay or a family of four looking for a nice vacation.

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sandcastle Hideaway for a month and enjoyed the town house and the area. The home was very clean, comfortable and close to the beach, grocery store and restaurants. The manager is very available and fixes any issues immediately. We look forward to staying again next year.

Great place to stay in St. Augustine

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I stayed here on our trip to St. Augustine and the townhouse was perfect for us. We didn't want to be cramped in a small hotel room and with the townhouse we had plenty of space with our own bedroom and bathroom. The owner, Anne, was so nice and helpful, especially since I had never stayed in a VRBO before. Also, the townhouse was a very short drive (less than 10 minutes) to downtown St. Augustine and less than 5 minutes to the grocery store.
