WOW!

  • 5 of 5
This was the most relaxing home that we have stayed at in a long time. Location is great for a relaxing time. We saw the sunrise and the sunset everyday we stayed here. The night sky and stars were fantastic from the deck. We so enjoyed the long walks and the fresh air.

We will stay again and again.

No one will regret staying here - It was absolutely GREAT!
Thanks again

TERRIFIC VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental! It was exactly as advertised on the website - very clean, plenty of towels, fully equipped and lots of room. We enjoyed local restaurants. Great food and atmosphere at Aunt Kate's, Kingfish Grill and the Chianti Room at Pizzalley. We also enjoyed going on the Dolphin Safari Cruise (bring sunglasses!), the Alligator Farm, and the Old Town Trolley tour. This home is in a quiet area at night and felt very secure. It's a great location set apart from the busy St. Augustine area, yet close to everything - only a 30 minute drive to Jacksonville. One thing to note is that the twin beds are bunk beds. The other two rooms each have queen size beds. Beautifully decorated home and we had a very relaxing stay!

We just got back home from staying at the Beach House. It was exactly what the pictures showed. It was close to Old Town St. Augustine, Publix was within a few blocks so you could walk if you only needed a couple of items. I am a early riser so I was up early everyday to see the sun rise. The deck was awesome at the end of the day to sit and just watch the ocean. We had everything that we needed if we cooked. My son-in-law loves to fish so he got up early everyday to go fish from the pier. We are already talking about staying at the Beach House again, hopefully this time next year.

FAMILY THANKSGIVING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This 3 day/ 3 night stay was amazing in the most wonderful way! The house was exactly like the photos on line. The owner was more than occommodating and gave outstanding customer service. The house is equiped with everything we needed and we all had a wonderful time. The living/dinning/kitchen area is wonderful for a big family to fellowship closely. There is plenty of room for 12 to sleep comfortably. Love that the bedrooms are at one end for the grandkids to sleep without interruption. Below the living area is a table and sandy area for the little ones to play during a cold or rainy day. They loved it there as much as the beach! :) Vilano Beach is small, quiet and relaxing and also has the marina, Publix, and some restaurants in walking distance. The beach is a few steps from the house and provided all the entertainment we needed. Downtown St. Augustine is just a short drive - less than 2 miles I believe and there was abundant of things to do there. The Holiday lights were beautiful! This was the best family vacation we've taken and we hope to make this a new tradition. The only down side to this trip was it was ONLY for 3 DAYS . . . we will book a week to 10 days next time. I recommend this location, house and owner to everyone I know!

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this house for a week so we could attend a nearby wedding. After having a less than satisfactory experience with a recent vacation rental in the Keys, I was naturally anxious. I have to say the house is fantastic. It is exactly as pictured and suited our needs perfectly. The location is fantastic- within walking distance to a new Publix, restaurants, and the beautiful Vilano fishing pier. I was somewhat concerned about vehicles on the beach, but it was only a bit crowded on the weekends. Also, The pedestrian only beach is within a five minute walk. The owner was easy to deal with and we look forward to future visits. We have always preferred Vilano Beach to St Augustine beach and have now found our new home away from home.

EXCELLENT HOLIDAYS AT THE BEACH HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the beach house 2 years in a row. We had such a great family time. The beach house was perfect for us. The location on Vilano Beach is excellent. It is so nice to walk out the front door and be on the boardwalk leading to the sand; The beach house is well-appointed and we had everything we needed to be comfortable. It was nice to be able to cook meals instead of going out for every meal. Everything was very clean upon arrival. William Porter is very, very nice and accommodating. He strives to make sure that everything is just right. Our Christmas and New Year's stay was made special by the Christmas tree that was waiting for us upon arrival.
The St. Augustine area has a plethora of things to do. We brought our bikes and enjoyed riding around Old Town. We also took the bikes over to St. Augustine Beach where you can ride along the ocean for miles. We enjoyed wine tasting at the San Sebastian Winery, walking through all the shops, and visiting Ft. Matanzas. We enjoyed our walks along Vilano Beach, and we were thrilled to see dolphins that were right near the shorte. We thank you so much, William, and plan to return. Roberta and Tom Thompson
