Nice Relaxing Week !!!

  • 5 of 5

Almost Heaven was a great place to relax for the week!!!

We frequent the Vilano Beach area on our vacations and this beach house was exactly as described. It is close to the Publix and many local restaurants. It is also a short drive to the heart of downtown St. Augustine.

Many of the reviews were exactly as described. There are many vacation rentals to choose from in this area, however this rental fit our needs. Although there were only two of us, there was room for larger families. Overall we really enjoyed our stay!!

We will be looking forward to returning again in the Fall and renting once again.

All you need for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Although our family loves St. Augustine, we were a little concerned going there during the spring break - we anticipated big crowds, busy streets, and very populated beaches. This is why Almost Heaven in Vilano Beach was a pleasant surprise. The house is located 5 min drive (20 min walk) from the center of St. Augustine right on a Coastal Hwy, nevertheless it has a feeling of being in a remote and private area. What you see on the pictures is exactly what you get: very open area filed with air and light, great layout, and absolutely amazing view from the windows. The house indeed is located right on the beach and has a private access to it from the deck. The ocean is so close (but on a very safe distance :) that my daughter was stunned when she looked out of the window next morning after arrival (we arrived a previous night in a dark).

There was 5 of us staying in this house, but it could easily accommodate 8 people without being crowded. It was clean, cozy, and equipped with everything that a family or a group of adults and kids need. The kitchen was very well stocked for cooking a very elaborate meal (we even made pies and soufflés). Bedrooms had plenty of storage, bathrooms were sparkling clean without any mold, plumbing problems, laundry room had very good washer and dryer, and there were so many TV sets (with a good choice of programs) in the house that each of us could watch different programs at the same time if we wanted... W didn't - there were plenty of other things to do because beaches, walking trails, Old Town of St Augustine with all its museums shops and restaurants were right there. Also, there is AC in the house so Florida heat would not be a bother even in the summer! The house literally had everything - charcoal grill, beach umbrellas, boogie boards... you name it. If I really have to name something that I didn't like it would be over-decoration with shells... but this , of course, is a matter of one's taste!

The biggest feature for me was the sound of the ocean - that was all we heard aside from the seagull's and wind. You cannot really hear the traffic from the road.

We had a great stay - I would definitely recommend this place to others.

Christmas at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

House worked perfect for our family holiday together

Plenty of space for everyone and the deck was our favorite hangout

May need new mattresses on the twin beds on first floor but everything else was great

Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed.

Thanks and see you this summer.

Owner's Response: Thanks we are so happy you loved our home. The mattress downstairs are relatively new. They all have memory foam toppers, maybe they arent for everyone, Maybe next time you can take them off if you prefer, just put them back on when you leave! See you soon.

Almost Heaven Review

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just completed a week-long stay at this wonderful home on Vilano Beach. Needing a quiet place to relax and unwind, we found the perfect spot. With ocean views and the sound of waves hitting the shoreline, we enjoyed every moment. The house was clean and comfortable and included everything we needed. Our only disappointment was...that the week ended too quickly. The owner was easy to work with and provided us with extra tips such as dining and shopping recommendations. Would we return to this house again? You know it. In fact, we can't wait.

Terrific Location! Loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

This house is BEACH FRONT! Great deck and it's own walkway. Layout of the home is efficient: 2 split bedrooms on the ground floor with a full bath and laundry room between and then a large and airy master with en suite bath and sliders out to the deck on the main floor. Then a pullout sofa in the large and airy loft. Location is 1/2 mile to the bridge over to San Marco making it much closer to the historic district than St. Augustine Beach. We also loved the Cuban restaurant, Tropicana, in Vilano Beach (great coffee too) and Beaches overlooking the inlet and Vilano Bridge for their Beacharita's. Walking the bridge is great exercise and we were rewarded with scenic views of the intracoastal. Just bring your toothbrush and some $$ for shopping! We wish we owned this slice of beach heave and could even drop in on the weekends. We live in Jax and will save up to stay here again.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have found our favorite beach spot in Florida! The accomodations more than met our expectations! So much room! So clean! Beautiful landscaping! Comfortable and clean beds and bathrooms! Well appointed kitchen! Everyone was happy from Grandpa to our 5 year old grandson! From Sand Castles to Sea Turtles to Ripley's ghost tour to dolphins playing along the shore for our entertainment, everyone was delighted with their stay. In minutes you can be shopping in downtown St. Augustine or enjoying the carousel at Davenport Park. We have rented other vacation homes, but this is by far the very best. We are already checking our calendars for when we can return!
