Owner's Response: I made it over to the condo to meet our guests the day before they were to leave for their long journey home and hope a very safe one. I have been blessed to have some wonderful guests stay at Surfside in my twenty years of renting these condos. I can only hope that they enjoyed their visit to our area and Surfside and that they will again return another day, month or year. Sally

The house is very well located just in front of the beach and five minutes to the historic district.

It has everything you need for 6 people and it is perfectly clean.

The house is so perfectly located with the ocean at your feet and a Publix down the street. There are amazing selections of restaurants very close by and the convenience of old St Augustine can't be beat!

Owner's Response: We are absolutely so closely located to everything you should want , especially the beach.....just out the door and your feet are in the sand and water. Out of something in your kitchen....half a mile away is the grocery store. Do not wish to cook....9 restaurants in the area without leaving the Island. This is Island living at its best!! Just come and'll see for yourself!! Sally

We vacationed at Villiano beach recently and spent it at Surfside retreat. We were pleased with our accommodation and everything was as advertised.

If your wanting a beach environment without the hustle and bustle most beach towns have this is the place to go! The beach house was lovely and quaint, it being beach side with its on entrance trumped everything! Sally is a wonderful lady who makes you feel at home, it was truly comfortable.

I Highly Recommend Surfside Retreat!

Owner's Response: Cathy is the start of your vacation time at Surfside Retreat. Always trying to take care of your needs and trying to get you settled into an agreeable vacation time and answer all the questions that you might have for her. I, on the other hand, am the lucky one that gets to meet and greet almost all of our wonderful guests and it is all my pleasure. Sure wish Cathy were able to meet you as well. She sure does miss out but I do try to keep her informed of our great guests. The conversation generally starts out like "oh Cathy, I wish you had been able to meet our guests in A, B or C, they are just great". And they are!! Cathy and her husband Nick were guests for many, many years at Surfside Retreat and still try to be a guest whenever possible. Until we see you again..... Cathy & Sally

Perfect place to enjoy access to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully decorated and very clean. So nice to find a place reasonably priced to enjoy the beach right out your door. Sally is a wonderful owner and met all our needs. We'll will definitely rent from her again.

Owner's Response: We work very hard at keeping our units updated as far as the decor goes and our housekeeping staff try very hard to keep the units clean and let us know of any repairs that may be necessary. We are not perfect but our guests deserve the best that we can give them. We have had some wonderful guests stay at Surfside Retreat and would like them to begin to think of this beach side community as their short stay home. Sally

We really enjoyed our stay. It was beautiful and had it's own beach access. The owner was super helpful and sweet. If we go back to Vilano Beach we will stay there again.

Owner's Response: Another guest that I, unfortunately, was not able to connect with and meet while I was on the property but did speak with several times by telephone. They seemed very nice and kept the unit very clean. We would love to have them return again if they should come to St. Augustine again for a vacation.
