Want a relaxed, uncrowded beach vacation? Go where the locals go- Vilano Beach! This one of a kind beach town is minutes from historic St. Augustine but feels like you stepped back in time. Besides the miles of beautiful secluded beaches the town offers a fishing pier, a Surfside Park, water craft rentals for all budgets, parasailing, many fun parks and a children's playground. Sanddollar Retreat is a beautifully decorated townhome that you will look forward to coming back to in the evening. It is also walking distance to one of my favorite restaurants in St. Augustine, "Caps on the Water" the food and sunsets there are world famous. There is also Aunt Kate's restaurant and many other amazing choices for dinner or receptions. Vilano Beach is known for destination beach weddings because it is so secluded.
Now let me tell you about Sanddollar Retreat, as soon as you walk into this gem you will notice what remarkable taste the owners have. They have gone out of their way to make you feel comfortable and the beach theme is cozy and relaxing. There is a large fenced in back yard with a patio to enjoy your coffee in the morning and a new grill for your fresh catch of the day. The grill is there for you to enjoy, you just need to catch the fish.
The living room has cozy couches to relax in and watch movies at night on the large flat screen TV. The kitchen is fully equipped if you wish to eat in or there are many dining choices nearby.
The downstairs bedroom offers a comfortable full size bed and another flat screen TV to help you wind down the day. Upstairs the master bedroom has a king size bed and t.v., so this is a perfect unit for two couples or a family. There is also a large bathroom upstairs. Two couch's downstairs also pull out to comfortable queen size bed's. So this fabulous unit can sleep 8.
There is also a new washer and dryer if you want to wash any clothes while you are there.
Located on a scenic 5 minute drive north of St.Augustine, Florida. Sanddollar Retreat is just a 5 minute walk to the secluded Vilano Beach. Whether its shelling, surfing, fishing, watching the porpoise jumping year round or whale watching in the winter months, this is the place to enjoy the beach.

We stayed for our 7th wedding anniversary with our two fur-children. We had a WONDERFUL time! Anne and Michael were wonderful and very attentative if we needed anything. It was spotless and they had everything we could have possibly needed. I'd absolutely HIGHLY recommend! We will definitely be back next year!
We had 8 people here. It was clean, comfortable and close to beach. Enjoyed the backyard and short drive to local attractions. Would stay again. Owners accessible and helpful.
We had a wonderful time! Will definitely rent here again. Very clean, comfortable and great location. Loved sitting out back in the quiet with the light sound of the ocean near by. Exactly what we were looking for. We are already planning a return visit. Anne and Michael were so nice and accommodating. Thanks for a fun spring break at this lovely property.
Great location .Super clean and very comfortable!! What can I say,this was our fourth year here and we will be back next year.I love hearing the ocean at night in your bedroom window.Anne and Michael are on sight property managers so if any problem their always there to help.Very friendly and safe area ! Your snowbird friends Dianne&Mike.
My husband and I had enough of northern winters and were looking for a place to stay near Jacksonville when we discovered Sanddollar Retreat. The pictures looked great and the reviews were very good; so we decided to give it a try. The place was exactly as it was represented and Anne and Michael were even more helpful than expected.
We work from home and it was important for us to have high speed Internet. Anne worked very hard to make sure that Comcast came out within a day!
Every room was nicely decorated and spacious. We especially loved the starry night sky from the back yard. Being able to walk to the ocean with our dogs was very cool. And St. Augustine quickly became a second home for us. It is a such a unique town and there is so much to do here for everybody.
The combination of such a lovely, comfortable place with everything that we could need, along with Anne and Michael's diligence in making sure everything was clean, well-maintained, stocked, and all details addressed--even after we arrived, makes this retreat a unique treasure to find. We hope to definitely come back.
My son and I had a fantastic last minute trip to St. Augustine. I have fallen in love with the place. The condo was extremely clean and had lots of extras that make being away from home easier. Having a washer and dryer in the condo was especially helpful.The enclosed yard was great for hanging out in the back with my dog. The managers were available 24/7 and had many suggetions to make our time there even better. It is a short drive into town. The beach is a quick walk away and was gorgeous! I even saw a nest of Leatherback SeaTurtles hatch, on my evening walk, and make their way to see the sea!! A once in a lifetime experience!
