About Dan Boutin

We are a Gainesville, Florida couple whose family has long enjoyed the beach. We have been coming to Vilano Beach for years due to it's relaxed, non-commerical nature. We are first time grandparents, which is why you'll find lots of children's toys and baby items available for your use.

She is a second-grade teacher, he is an executive for a silicon valley software company.

Dan Boutin purchased this condo in 2015

Why Dan Boutin chose Florida North East

We've been coming to Vilano beach for years. This area is mostly residential homes, with only a couple of condo complexes available in this immediate area. Thus, there is no congestion, minimal traffic and a wide beach available for your enjoyment. There are restaurants and a grocery store all within 1/2 a mile, and a gas station/convenience store about 100 yards down A1A.

You are still only a 10 minute drive to downtown Saint Augustine and all the landmarks, shops and restaurants. During "in-season" (May - September), there are water taxi's and trolleys that run from the Vilano beach pier area that can take you to downtown Saint Augustine, thus avoiding any worries about parking in the downtown area, which can be a challenge year-round.

What makes this condo unique

This property features the ultimate vacation experience, in addition to a great option for a connected vacation for the business traveller. With a 150MPS WiFi connection, speed is never an issues when streaming content or conducting conference calls.

Ocean Front and Ocean View. Ground Floor. Not many like it in Vilano Beach.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

A 4 night stay with 21 year old granddaughters and a friend. We all had a great time and loved the condo. The condo was perfect for our needs, clean, 1st floor, on the beach and convenient to St. Augustine. The pictures given are an accurate depiction of the unit. The living room is comfortable with a big TV when lounging out of the sun or at night, honestly we didn't turn the TV on but once. The porch had a constant breeze, nice seating area with 2 chairs and table, door out to a nice grass area. Kitchen, new, with everything needed. Washer and dryer are a plus. Plenty of towels for the beach, beach chairs and toys. The beach is easily accessible, a short walk on a boardwalk. Pool is a few steps out the front door and was never crowded. Wi-Fi was fast and efficient. I did have to go outside to get good cell service. My bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows. Bathrooms clean, with no sign of mold or mildew as stated in a previous review. That review had me concerned, the owner addressed my concerns and gave me the option to cancel my reservation, glad I didn't. Easy 10 minute drive to downtown, a beautiful view of the intracoastal and St A driving over the bridge. The girls Ubered it downtown one night, $10. Publix is 2 blocks away, so glad they built this. Don't overlook the restaurants in Vilano,

Casa Benedetto's Ristorante for Italian and Beaches for a sunset and seafood are two of my favorites. Take a walk on the pier. All in all a great stay and I would return.

Great place and location

This is a great location for a condo super close to St. Augustine and right on the beach. The beds were comfy and the owner is very accommodating and great with communication. Thanks again!

mildew

  • 3 of 5

Access to beach & overall grounds were as described & nice. If bathroom /shower /kitchen is not as important (interested only in the beach) you will be fine. We were traveling with in laws and had to apologize for the condition of their bath & bedroom. Mildew on walls & shower curtains, peeling paint and walls deteriorated behind drapes. Embarrassing that they did not feel comfortable using their area. Our side was the same & the bath rugs and accessories should be thrown out.

That said we did eat out as planned & enjoyed our time together. Screen porch was perfect for cocktail hour and breezy. All of the doors & screens had to be handled with care as they too are showing age and could use an update.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you felt you had this awfull experience. As I mentioned in the Guest Guide provided, we would have righted any issue immediately. You had my cell phone. I never received a call or even a text. I have had ZERO issues/complaints about mildew. (I have a service that comes in monthly to check for mold everywhere, on walls, in walls, etc. and this had just been done at the end of March, with no negative issues.) That said, all the bathroom items were purchased less than 3 months ago and are washed/cycled often by our cleaning service. With regards to the doors/screens, the screens are not meant to be opened or tampered with (it appears that a couple have been, but I am not the type to knit-pick and keep security deposits, things happen.) The screen doors facing the ocean do get peppered with salt constantly, so the latch does stick on occasion. (Anyone who's lived on the beach knows all about this issue.) All the pictures shown in our listing were taken as recently as January 2017. In the future, and I do this with all guests, if the unit, upon entry, is unacceptable, I am more than happy to discuss--as was clearly stated in the guest guide that I provide to every renter upon entry. Thank you!

Wonderful condo and location! The bed was comfortable (always a plus), all of the extra things you may have forgotten were provided, screened in porch was peaceful, and just the right place for our family! Thanks for sharing it for a few days!
