Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks Susan- We really enjoyed the stay at your

home. It was quiet and comfortable, and was just

what we needed to recharge the batteries. We really

love the St Augustine area and I'm sure that we'll

be back again. Your home is perfectly located to get

to downtown quickly, but not feel overly crowded.



We also loved the local restaurants, especially Caps.

Thanks for the tip.



Take care, Paul

I grew up in Florida, moved to NYC, Philadelphia & Santa Fe, NM for 23 years prior to moving back to St. Augustine in 1995. I was a former professional dancer and owned a physical therapy and Pilates wellness center in St. Augustine for the past 15 years. I consider my home a canvas that reflects my creative and eclectic taste yet is comfortable and warm.

Susan Huffman purchased this house in 1995

Conveniently located between St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra. My home offers easy access to I 95, outlet malls, golf, water sports and historical sites. Within walking distance of three waterfront restaurants. Two miles from the Vilano Town Center with Publix, a salon, dry cleaning, restaurants, beach wear, a water park, boat rentals and fishing pier.

Open floor plan with great ocean views from every room. Walk out your back door to the beach. This property is in an established neighborhood with private homes vs. condos.

EXCELLENT HOLIDAY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed spending the Christmas and New Year holiday in this comfortable home on peaceful Vilano Beach. The home is beautifully decorated, clean and well-maintained. It offers easy access to St. Augustine's activities and sightseeing. The neighborhood is upscale and quiet. The owner thought of everything to equip the house for our comfort and ease of use. I never leave home without my two chihuahuas and I appreciated the owner's acceptance of this part of my family. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a beautifully decorated home, with amazing ocean views, this place is for you! Everything about the home was warm and inviting. What you see in the pictures is what you get, only more..... the extra touches were delightful; artwork, fine linen, soft leather sofas, etc. Located right on the beach, wonderful decks to relax on and a hot tub that was put to good use! You are located away from the crowds, but a very short drive from restaurants and Publix, etc. It is only minutes to all the attractions that St. Augustine offers. We had three little girls and four adults staying here and there was plenty of room for all to sleep and play comfortably. We watched sunrises, dolphins, pelicans & surfers from the huge ocean view windows. The men fished from the beach & caught a stingray, as well as other fish. The kids loved finding shells on the beach to take home. We dined at Cap's on the Water and Aunt Kate's restaurants; they are located close by and we recommend them!
The home was spotless! It has a stack laundry area if you need it. You have lawn chairs, boogie boards and sand toys at your disposal.
Susan, the owner, is only a phone call away if you need anything. She is very friendly and helpful with any needs or questions you have.
We definitely recommend this home as a place to stay while visiting the Oldest City in the Nation!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay (despite the few days of rain). If you ever want to come back I will give you a discount on the first night's rent.
Again, I can't thank you enough for the wonderful review!

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 9 year old daughter joined me here for a very relaxing week. The home is well furnished and comfortable, and the location can't be beat. We were just minutes from downtown St. Augustine, yet we felt miles away. The beach was uncrowded and simply beautiful. We highly recommend to stay here and make sure to try the local restaurants. We especially recommend Caps.

BEACHLOVER

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful home on a girls weekend. The home affords all the comforts of a 5 star hotel. It is divinely decorated, with so much positive energy, you can only smile when you look around. The view is fantastic. The beach is not crowded and it was so wonderful to be right on it. There are wonderful places to visit and dine only minutes away. Meal preparation was perfect as the kitchen has all you need to create a wonderful experience. It is perfect for any type of vacation.

GREAT LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! That's all I can say! The home is beautiful and elegant, while still being very comfortable! The beach is great and the water is crystal clear and blue!! The home is in a great location. You can even walk to some great restaurants if you wish! Wonderful sunrises and a little walk across the street are beautiful sunsets on the Intercoastal Waterway! Caps, Aunt Kate's, The Reef are some of the local favorite restaurants just minutes away! The new Vilano Beach shopping area is not too far away with restaurants, shopping and a great fishing pier! I highly recommend this house! We had 8 women in our party and there was plenty of room! Loved the hot tub on the deck overlooking the ocean! The price was really affordable and we got a great deal for our money! We will definitely stay here again!
