We fell in love with this enchanting cottage because of its vintage quality and location. It is a sweet old cottage that we have totally renovated. You walk out the door and within steps you are at the sea.
This is an old fashioned 1930's beach cottage with lots of privacy as it is totally fenced in. We've hired a talented gardener/ designer who uses Florida native beach flowers and grasses to create a casual shore setting.
Come and relax at our 1930’s totally renovated cottage by the sea. We've decorated it with charming vintage finds. Including chandeliers that light up the patio area at night creating a magical setting for romance and family fun.
We love sitting on the deck at night feeling the breezes off the ocean.
Immerse yourself in the world of Old Florida, the way it used to be. Grab your coffee and watch the miracle of a sunrise as the dolphins play and the pelicans fly overhead. Sometimes you will see a couple of the locals fishing and it's fun to check if they "got lucky" yet. It's so peaceful walking along our quiet beach to the inlet where you can see the old St Augustine lighthouse on the other shore and other historical sites.
Many activities are available at the beach...parasailing, fishing, kayaking, boating. Why not sail on the pirate ship “Black Raven' If you sail on Wednesday it docks at Aunt Kate’s restaurant for a delicious seafood dinner. We also love walking to our favorite local restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. (We’ll leave you a list). You can walk to our beautiful pier (you can fish from it) too.
Feel like visiting the 16th century? A short ride over the bridge and you are in ancient St. Augustine. The oldest settlement and fort in the USA.
Explore the historical sites and enjoy the family owned restaurants. Take a tour. Either a trolley or a romantic horse and carriage ride.
Fall asleep to the sound of the surf and the swaying palm trees in our hammock on the deck. Yes you can see the ocean from the deck.

We rented a cottage in the area and fell in love with the location. I had always dreamed of having a cottage by the sea where we could grab our coffees, walk the beach and watch the sunrise.
The charming quaint cottages and the quietness of the area are so relaxing. There is a beautiful nature walk across the street.
Having the ancient city of St Augustine so close by makes the location perfect. Interesting restaurants and beautiful architecture just make it a dream location. St. Augustine is a very magical city. Take a horse and carriage ride!
We love and use the cottage whenever we can.
I like to think of our guests as friends, who are enjoying our cottage.
In addition to being less than 10 minutes from the ancient city, you can walk to at least 3 good restaurants and our local supermarket, Publix.
I had an extended stay here and really enjoyed it. I was very comfortable, within steps to the beach, and the cottage was stocked with everything I needed even for a few months. I'd definitely recommend it!
We've been spending a week here in December for the past five years. We love it! The cottage is bright and comfy on the inside, and the location is ideal! The beach is literally steps away. Vilano Beach is a nice, laid-back little community; the bustle of St. Augustine seems far away, and yet it's only a 10-minute bike ride. St. Augustine itself is quite lovely in December, with all the lights; the view from Porpoise Point or the Pier is beautiful.
Our favorite places to visit are the GTM-NERR (8 miles north on A1A), Fort Mosé State Park (just at the other end of the Causeway), Anastasia State Park (6 miles south on A1A), and Washington Oaks State Park (in Marineland, 22 miles south on A1A).
We really look forward to our December getaway each year; we hope to keep coming back for a long time to come!
The cottage was sparkly, clean; bath and kitchen renovated. The outdoor seating is wonderful. The beach is 300 steps away! Walk to Publix; St Augustine is less than 15 minutes away.
The cottage had everything we needed. The owner put in a few extras, food staples, laundry soap and shampoo. The cottage is cozy with a warm and inviting feeling when you walk in the door. My favorite places were the reading nook and deck.The location was perfect.
This cottage is just as pictured, it is darling. It is located very close to the bridge from St. Augustine to Vilano Beach & sits 3 houses from a quiet beautiful part of that beach. It feels tucked in with the high fence all around, although the other houses are very close. The shaded patio was always cool & at night when the chandeliers come on, it is pretty romantic. We sat on the top deck most evenings, a nice ocean breeze & peek of water, very relaxing (especially in the hammock) Inside, it is well stocked, very comfy bed & great shower. The decor is fun to walk around & discover, quite eclectic. My favorite was the over sized window seat, snuggle in there with all those pillows, your book, wine or tea & it is pretty nice!
We walked to the restaurant Beaches at Vilano one night, very good. We got take out pizza from 180 Vilano another night, also very good. It was such a neat little kitchen we cooked quite a bit & dined under the chandeliers! St. Augustine is a short ez drive & a fantastic town. We were torn between fun town, great beach & sweet cottage! The owners were terrific to work with. It has its quirks, it is a 1930's cottage, but, therein lies its charms!! Enjoy it
cottage was supper clean and very interesting. everything you could need was there, and was close to food and all other needs! great vacation and we will definitely stay there again!!! larry morgan
