Property description


***Forbes magazine has named St. Augustine as one of the "ten prettiest towns in America", based on natural beauty & unique identity***

Cable & WIFI

Along the way to the beach is a park with TENNIS COURTS, a basketball court & playground.


Vilano's nature boardwalk & ocean, restaurants & fishing pier, groceries, are all within walking distance.

Rented by the month, one or more/long term seasonal. You may email or call to discuss details.

Vilano beach, in historic St. Augustine, our nation's oldest city.

PARKING- We can accommodate large vehicles, campers & trailers.

'We have enjoyed creating this tranquil space. We invite you to open your eyes to the beauty all around - the golden shafts of sun, the sunset reflecting lavender in the marshes, & a whole variety of interesting birds, as well as the wonderful smell of the ocean beckoning you from your bedroom window to stroll along the beach' ~ Susan & Gilda, owners

THE ANCIENT CITY- Florida's most romantic destination
'Like love itself St. Augustine endures in hearts of every romantic who ever strolled her cobblestone streets. Balmy ocean breezes beckon couples to walk hand in hand along the bayfront. A horse & carriage ride along narrow alleys illuminated by flickering gaslight encourages stollen kisses. Dinner & wine on a balcony reignites forgotten passion' ~ Nancy M., guest
