Vilano Beach vacation rentals

Enjoy a laid-back vacation in cool Vilano Beach

Vilano Beach is a small sun-kissed community town, based in St Johns County in Florida, overlooking the deep blue Atlantic Ocean. Lined with palm-studded, white-sand beachfront, and bursting with relaxed seafood restaurants and cool cocktail bars, Vilano Beach is the perfect place for a stress-alleviating vacation. There are a wide range of Vilano Beach vacation rentals, too, including beachfront condos, city bungalows, and spacious apartments, so whether you’re traveling as a couple, with friends, or with family, you’re bound to find something to suit you.

Ride the wild Vilano Beach waves

Energetic Vilano Beach vacationers can head down to the beachfront and catch some radical waves – this stretch of Florida coast is known for its intense surf, and Vilano Beach is hailed as a secret and uncrowded paradise for surfers. Vilano Beach’s silken sands are also ideal for skim-boarding, and the sparkling waters also lend themselves to sea fishing – you can rent your own boat and fishing equipment from Vilano Beach, or book an organized fishing or eco boat tour. For a relaxing afternoon activity, stop at one of the 18-hole golf courses dotted around Vilano Beach and take swing on a lush-green fairway.

Architecture and family attractions in and around Vilano Beach

Vilano Beach isn’t only about sugary sands and tumbling surf, it also boasts a bounty of engaging cultural attractions. Architecture enthusiasts should enjoy the Villa Zorayda Museum in the adjacent town of St Augustine, a 19th-century villa built in a Moorish style, with intricate arabesque-inlaid arches and lofty domes. If you’re traveling with the kids, swing by the nearby Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum – set in a majestic castle-like building – where they can engage with interactive exhibits. After, see the Castillo de San Marcos, a 17th-century stone fortress, which is studded with canons and overlooks the ocean.

Subtropical sunshine in spring and fall

Vilano Beach boasts a subtropical climate, meaning that it enjoys balmy to high temperatures year-round, as well as an extremely high number of sunny days per year. The hot and wet summer season – lasting from May to October – sees strong and dramatic thunderstorms and sweltering, humid days. As such, the spring and fall seasons are often the best time to book Vilano Beach vacation rentals – these seasons provide plenty of sunshine and pleasantly warm temperatures without much rainfall, and without ever getting too chilly.

Venture out to Vilano Beach’s wildlife-rich parks

Vilano Beach vacation rentals put you in the heart of Florida’s St. Johns County, in eastern Florida. The small town of Vilano Beach, and its neighbor, the historic city of St. Augustin – which is dotted with old-world Spanish architecture – overlook Matanzas Bay, a peaceful emerald-blue saltwater bay that spills into the mighty South Atlantic Ocean. Vilano Beach’s immediate surrounding environment is speckled with golf courses – but a little further out, you’ll find plentiful parkland, from oceanfront state and national parks to swampland conservation areas. Here, an array of wildlife awaits, including snakes, sea turtles, and rare wood storks.
