Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Come and enjoy this cozy cottage in the land of dolphins and pelicans! Enjoy the sounds of gentle breezes blowing in the palm trees outside your window, and the surf rolling up on the beach. You'll love the natural beauty of the still-unspoiled area of North Florida. You can walk along a peaceful, uncrowded beach and just relax, or pick one of the many activities nearby: para sailing, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing, boating, cycling, bird-watching, hiking or golf.

Historic St. Augustine is only two miles away, Jacksonville 45 minutes away, and Orlando is a two-hour drive.

This quaint, historic cottage was part of a group of houses built in the 1930's in this area of Vilano Beach. Originally a fishing village, the area was constructed by an aviator named Reiss, a colleague of Charles Lindbergh and founder of the St. Augustine airport. Used by military families during WWII (a German spy occupied one of these cottages), it later became a motel called the Pagoda.

Why The Owner chose St. Augustine Area

The first time we traveled to St. Augustine and visited friends who had a cottage on Vilano Beach, we fell in love with the area. It was so different from other places in Florida in that it was less developed and more relaxing to us. The beaches are so beautiful and Vilano is not crowded. There is so much closeby - the historic parts of St. Augustine, which maintains its original architectural style; Guana State Park, where there are many trails for easy hiking; a gorgeous scenic drive up A1A North; and the beach is just 100 yards from our door.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place. Traveled at the last minute for some surf fishing for a friends birthday and the cottage was perfect for what we needed. Great location and a Very short walk to the beach. We will definite back. The outside decks are great to hang out on and enjoy the breeze after a nice day at the beach.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing!! When booking, the owner is very informative and quick to respond. The property is fenced in so it has great privacy. We loved the hammocks and the grill!! It has great air condition the whole place got cold! The kitchen is stocked with utensils, microwave, oven and fridge! It's a short walk from publix for groceries and the beach! We love how the cottage is on a island so you have the relaxing laid back feel of the beach yet if you travel right over the bridge about six minutes is down town st Augustine with a ton of sight seeing! We can't wait to plan our next trip here!!

Starting the New Year right!

  • 4 of 5

I booked this property to get away for a few days with my fiancé for the New Year. The owner was amazing with a speedy response when I first inquired. She ensured I had several ways of contacting her before, during and after.

The property itself was very comfortable inside for us. As others have stated before, it's charm is the fact that it was built in the 1930's. You can see there have been some updates. The property was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The outside of the property does need some TLC, but aside from that, I have nothing negative to say.

Highly recommend to rent here. We have some great memories to cherish :)

Our Perfect Escape - Again & Again

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here four times in the past five years and we love it more each time! The house is super cozy. The yard is completely private and its only a two minute walk to the beach.

Jackie is very easy to work with and very accommodating.

Within easy walking distance of Publix and many other restaurants and shops, and yet still secluded from the hustle and bustle - thanks to the high privacy fence.

The decor is charming - both inside and out. Touches of art deco highlight the interior while the yard is beachy themed with many geckos for entertainment.

We drive all the way from Wisconsin and each time it's like stepping back in time and all the tensions (and Northern chills) just slip away.

We feel like its our home away from home.

Central location

  • 3 of 5

We really liked the central location & ease of access to Publix, to St. Augustine & to various beaches. The off street parking was great and we made good use of the wi-fi. The beds were very comfy & we appreciated the use of the extra blankets on a couple chilly nights (no central heat/AC). On the downside, the proximity to A-1A made it quite noisy - especially since it turns out to have been motorcycle week in Daytona!

This is a 1930's beach cottage and there aren't many of those left in FL! Keeping that in mind tho, the property does have significant maintenance (termites, LR windows fell out when trying to open them) & housekeeping issues (cobwebs, coffee rings on DR table) & I spoke w the owner about these the night before we left. I said that it must be difficult to oversee these issues from afar & to rely on property managers & she agreed. She noted that the property was very reasonably priced for the area.

All negatives aside, we had a good stay, but would not choose to return.
