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.
Alternatively have lots of fun in nearby St.Augustine, the newest nations oldest city, with its many attractions.
A convienent cab service to and from downtown is another great advantage, leave the car at home and paint the town red, for as little as $10-13.
Also close by is Guana State Park, 5 miles, Premium Outlet Mall for shopping, 11 miles, TPC Sawgrass, 15 miles, Ponte Vedra Beach with its spectacular homes of the rich and famous, 10 miles, World Golf Village, 18 miles.
What we expected would definitely come back..
Very nice condo. Well stocked and immaculately clean (thank you., Ann!). The 2 bedrooms were large and comfortable The 2 bathrooms were not large, but certainly adequate. The open floor plan living/dining/kitchen opens to a lovely part shaded fenced in back yard thru sliding doors. The neighborhood was quiet and well kept. Last year's hurricane Matthew did some damage to the oceanfront homes, the beach access, and route A1A. They're working diligently on the repairs and should be done in a matter of months. Ann is the perfect concierge... even providing short cuts to restaurants within walking distance. She's very responsive and professional. We loved Vilano Beach and the surrounding areas of St Augustine Looking forward to going back next year. Thanks, Ann !
What can I say this was our 5th year staying at SandDollar Retreat. We love the location,the condo is just perfect SPOTLESS .Ann and Michael are wonderful property managers always very helpful. Close to everything you would want to do,or just relax in the back yard. See you guys next year your friends Dianne & Mike !!
You can find thousands of places to stay around st. Augustine, But what can be difficult to find is dealing with GREAT people. We all know about hidden fees and surprises at the end of a long stay. Michael and Anne are true people of their word. Things were just what we agreed on, no hidden fees, no disruption in our stay, no miscommunication. The unit was super clean and well kept. We had 8 people and was very comfortable. I spend a lot of time around st. johns county and i found my new home. Thank you Michael and Anne for making all the difference in a wonderful vacation.
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.
