Comfortable and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. The accommodations were outstanding, spacious yet cozy with everything we needed. After morning visits to Vilano Beach, it was great to relax on the shaded private deck in the afternoons. Anne and Michael were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely recommend a stay here to our friends, and plan to visit again.

Sandcastle Hideaway - a Gem on Vilno Beach

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home as soon as we walked into the house! We enjoyed looking at the tropical gardens from both the sunroom and the deck. Located in a dog friendly neighborhood and across from Vilano Beach, it's a short drive to great restaurants. Sandcastle Hideaway was the cleanest vacation apartment we have ever rented! The property managers were always available to answer questions and make recommendations about things to do in the area. Looking forward to coming back in 2018!

Upscale & perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

This property was so relaxing for our winter get-away! We used the deck and the sunroom every day! It is a very comfortable house and is in a beautiful tropical setting.

The Property Managers are concerned about the guests' stay. They wanted to make sure that every aspect of our stay was enjoyable (and it was!). Any questions about the property or the area are answered promptly, and completely!

We are looking forward to coming back in 2018!

Sandcastle hideaway

We stayed at Sandcastle Hideaway for the month of January 2017 and found the home to be perfect again. It is well equipped, close to the beach, stores, restaurants and is located in a nice and friendly neighborhood. The deck is a comfortable spot overlooking a lovely yard, perfect for relaxing with a good book. We look forward to going back next year.

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!
