Vilano Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4) Just Over A Block From The Gorgeous Beach.

Nestled in the treetops, just over a block from Surfside Beach Park, the 'Surf Shack Vilano' offers you and your family a refuge.

Enjoy meals alfresco on the deck of this upstairs, open floor plan home. The large yard is lush with tropical and native plants, and has plenty of room to kick a ball around. Hunt for sea treasures (like pre-historic shark teeth) along our shell covered beach.

The home is so airy and bright - You'll love leaving the windows open to enjoy the salt air and hear waves crashing on a high surf day. Enjoy high speed internet while Osprey and Pelicans fly by, and be amazed by the local shore-fishermens' catch.

This house is only a few blocks, then, over the bridge to St. Augustine - You could bike there, or dolphin watch during your venture via the (bike friendly) water taxi at our famous fishing pier. Vilano Town Center is 6 blocks away (restaurants, bars, gas, salon +) A neighborhood park featuring tennis, and basketball courts and a playground is 1 block away.

Enjoy the beach-town lifestyle, kick off your shoes and relax!

About Surf Shack Vilano

I grew up in Hawaii and married a Minnesota boy. A 'Snowbird's' life was the best of both worlds, so off on the house hunt we went! Hawaii (alas) is such a long plane ride from Minneapolis, that we compromised on sunny Florida. We fell in LOVE with St. Augustine when my parents and brother had moved there around 2000, and with the 4 hour trip (driving included,) it was the perfect spot to escape MN's harsh winters! My family has since moved back to Hawaii, but we still visit Vilano / St. Augustine every chance we get.

Surf Shack Vilano purchased this house in 2010

Why Surf Shack Vilano chose Vilano Beach

Vilano Beach offered the layed back beach-lifestyle I grew up with - similar to a small town atmosphere, the neighbors all smile, wave and talk to you, you can walk to everything you need, and the sea treasure hunting on this beach is AMAZING!!- Everything from gorgeous, huge conch shells, to shark teeth, to ship wreck items.

The stars and sky are glorious at night, and we love drifting off to sleep with the windows open. We are very close to the St Augustine attractions, but feel like we are in another world once we cross back over the bridge - Our Oasis.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! The house is close to the beach, without suffering the noise of A1A. I adore walking and biking with my family around the island, going to the neighborhood park, then swimming at the beach! We are just over the bridge from the excitement of St. Augustine, yet it feels a world away. Multi tasking a bike ride or walk (down the beach or over the marsh boardwalk) with grocery shopping is always better than the alternative! I also love this property because it is so airy and bright. The open floor plan is great for the whole family to converse in.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it! The owner was very friendly and timely in communicating with us, the location is great, and it's a cute little house just steps from the beach! We will be back!!

Adorable and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
My son and I have stayed twice and plan on staying again whenever we need a getaway to St. Augustine. The house is so cute and comfortable and includes everything you need to feel at home. I love that it's so close to the beach and all of the Old City attractions, but it's wonderful to get away from the crowds and bustle when you're done sightseeing or beachcombing.

I also really appreciate the laundry room and the option of cooking in a fully stocked kitchen if I have the urge. An actual 12-cup coffee maker, toaster, blender!

Thanks for thinking of everything, Surfshack!

Very nice cabin, deck, 2 blocks to beach, close to St Aug

  • 5 of 5
Very nice little cabin in sleepy paradise of Vilano Beach. Owner did a very nice job decorating, and eat-in kitchen opens onto nice deck off front. Easy block or two walk straight down street to the ocean. About 5 - 10min drive to historic downtown St Augustine. We loved it!

The Surf Shack was a perfect fit for our stay in Saint Augustine. We have stayed on Vilano many times over the past 15 year and once again we were not disappointed.The neighbors and neighborhood are quiet. My wife is a walker and did 5 to 6 miles every morning at an early hour. She particularly liked the Boardwalk just a few blocks away adjacent to a small marshy area. Surf Shack gives easy access to the beach(2 blocks) and to downtown Saint Augustine, just a few minutes drive. To the north there are great natural attractions to see and trails to walk adjacent to the Inland Waterway. We would definitely recommend the stay to others.

Surf, sand, fun

  • 5 of 5
Great, comfortable home, close to everything. I walked to the beach every morning for sunrise with my coffee in hand. I flew out of JAX and found the "goodbye Florida drive" up A1A wonderful as well. I will recommend the Surf Shack to all visiting St Augustine!

Super comfortable home for small group (2-4) at a reasonable price. Convenient to beach, shopping & site seeing. Wonderful to have excellent internet service, TV with good selection of channels, plenty of kitchen equipment. Owner & manager are responsive to emails, calls & questions. We stayed in this home for a month in both 2012 & 2013. Hope to return in 2014!

Spend days meandering down the beautiful, shell covered beach, treasure hunting for pre-historic shark teeth and other sea treasures. Horseback riding is another regular activity at our beach access. Located on the NE barrier island from historic St. Augustine, Vilano is the perfect get-away.

'Town Center' offers conveniences such as a new Publix grocery store, restaurants, dry cleaning, salon and a gas station - all within walking distance of home.

Vilano Beach is 'where the locals go' - For fun, enjoy a (bike friendly) water taxi into historic St. Augustine from our famous fishing pier. Spend time at the pier watching dolphins, fishing, or rent a jet ski from the Marina.

After a day of exploring our nation's oldest city, you will instantly relax as you head back over the ICW bridge to this quiet and tranquil oasis.
