A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! Good unit with beautiful view and 2 minute walk to the beach. Vilano Beach is a hidden gem, white sand and warm ocean. Not many people on the beach.Keep your eyes open for dolphines, manatees and turtles. Publix in walking distance and downtown St.Augustine is in 10 min drive.

The apartment itself was cozy and neat. Would recommend staying at this property!

Vacation of a lifetime. 5 STARS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first trip to St. Augustine Florida and we enjoyed every minute. My husband and I absolutely loved The Crow's Nest! Everything about it was perfect. The location was spectacular with the beautiful stone path leading to the beach. The path and view to the ocean was absolutely beautiful at night, especially highlighted by the charming butterfly lamps. Vilano Beach was fabulous. We spent everyday on the beach. The apartment itself was just perfect. We loved the decor and it really had everything we needed. It was so comfortable, that we even chose to eat in for most of the week. We were sad that our week flew by so quickly, and we really hope that when we return to St. Augustine, the Crow's Nest will be available! Thank you for a wonderful week!

TRANQUIL CARIBBEAN GET-AWAY

  • 4 of 5

I say Caribbean because the property was natural, un-touched and budding with life. From wild flowers to palm trees and cactus, it was calming and felt distant. Sure the view from this part of the property isn't looking right over the ocean, but we didn't need it. From the front porch I saw flowers covering the ground and seeming to flow into the water. A brick walkway weaves through the garden connecting all the rentals. This eventually transitions into a private boardwalk which also feels secluded. Check out the youtube video posted on the page for a more satisfying look at this place.

We visited the property with two small kids under 4 and a dog. All three loved walking or running from the Crow's Nest to the beach. I loved coming up over the hill on the boardwalk and seeing the clean, open beach front welcoming us to stay the day. We set up on the beach using a tent and chairs but we were able to sprawl out with multiple play spots. At times we had the run of the beach, but at other points the public access spilled into the area we practically owned in the mornings. However we never felt overwhelmed by people...this beach feels remote.

While we were there we saw people ride horses on the beach or take their bikes up along the ocean's edge. I wish we thought to do that because it looked fun.

When we weren't on the beach we enjoyed eating at Aunt Kates and Kingfish. Vinny also had a great gyro that wasn't greasy. We also spent some time in Saint augustine, but not much because we wanted to be on the beach. The Alligator Farm was worth the trip, we spent a rainy morning there.

There are 4 rentals here but the Crow's nest worked for us. Oh the only real downside: two queen beds in one room. The pro: it's like a hotel room. The con: you're not likely to share the Crow's Nest with friends... unless there is a way to divide the room for some privacy...

Overall I recommend this property.
