Experience the finest in oceanfront stays.... Duneswept is an oceanfront vacation rental house located on secluded Vilano Beach just a couple of miles north of historic Saint Augustine, Florida.

Duneswept has breathtaking panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Experience the unique charm of this oceanfront home. Vilano beach surf, relaxing in a lounge chair or sharing a dinner with friends on the front porch.

This sunny Vilano Beach home gives vacation renters dream-home amenities and sparkling bodysurfing waves. The four bedroom, three anyone-half bath house offers an open living room and kitchen with a bar-height counter in which to entertain. The whole house was recently remodeled with an eye for every detail. Beautiful, artistic mosaic tile work adorns the kitchen and the fireplace.

You'll find places to sit and relax inside and out, designed for people to enjoy a beach vacation in a beautiful setting. There is a table with colorful chairs on the deck awaiting a family dinner or cookout for two. Relax in lounge chairs on the deck and sit and read a magazine or walk a few steps to the beach, catch a wave and experience beach living at its finest.

The many decks, the covered patio and the beautiful beach serve as drivers of your relaxation. From the cool ‘bunk room’ for the kids, the ‘nap room’ where it is quiet and cool, the ‘flip-flop’ room for that special surfer, to the elegant master bedroom overlooking the ocean, our home will exceed your expectations.

Amazing ocean view from porch!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed seven nights at Duneswept and enjoyed every minute of it! The house was very clean and well-maintained. It was decorated beautifully. Jane was very professional and available if we had the need to contact her, which we did not. The beach was just a few feet away from the back porch and seemed like it only belonged to us. I would stay here again!

This home was just amazing. The view of the ocean was unbelievable as was the ease of use. This home is so well maintained and decorated like it came straight out of a magazine. There were so many extra towels and washcloths, I am still shocked. I have rented many houses for trips and have never had so many "extras". My two boys loved the bunk bed room. My only complaint was the downstairs bathroom. The shower is very small - my husband who is 6'2" couldn't use it all. However, it worked great for my 8 year old. The downstairs queen bed bedroom is very cold and dark since it has no windows, but not a big deal. Jane is a wonderful person and so easy to work with. She was there when part of my party arrived and showed them around. Thank you Jane for your hospitality and making our first trip to St. Augustine the best beach trip I have ever had. We will be back!

We recently visited St. Augustine for the first time and stayed at Duneswept. What a beautiful home full of beautiful decorations and all the amenities you would expect and more. The view is great, right on the beach a very short walk down the stairs and you are there. Easy drive to the grocery store, and also 5 minute drive or so to St. Augustine. Great time and highly recommend Duneswept.
