Property Details

Updated: May 25, 2015
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

For your convenience and peace-of-mind, we now accept VISA and Mastercard!

You won't want to leave this newer, fully-renovated beach cottage! Immaculate, fresh, clean, and uncluttered; fully renovated in 2010! Just 2/10 of a mile to the beach in Vilano Beach, St. Augustine.

Located on a quiet, low-traffic street, this beach house comfortably accomodates eight, with four bedrooms and two full baths. You will wake up refreshed and invigorated after sleeping on any one of the super-comfy memory foam mattresses.

O'Cottage by the Sea is the ideal place to marry a beach vacation with sight-seeing, relaxing, fine dining, and world-class golf!

Our home is just one block to the sand (with no busy road to cross), a 5-minute-drive to historic St. Augustine, the oldest city in America, and a 25-minute-drive along traffic-free, scenic A1A to Ponte Vedra Beach, home of the Players' Club Championship (TPC) and AAA five diamond rated Ponte Vedra Inn and Club (think spa, ladies, and golf, gentlemen).

You can also walk to the Vilano Fishing Pier, where you can rent a boat at Bay Ray Boat Rentals or pick up a pizza or Chinese in the Town Center.

There is a convenience store within walking distance, too! A brand-new, full-service Publix grocery store is two blocks from the house--even closer than the convenience store!

We are a smoke-free and pet-free home.

About the Owner

My husband and I purchased and renovated this home to use for our retirement in years to come. We also liked the thought of having a place to go on weekends with our kids.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for providing such a lovely home for our family vacation! The house is beautiful and the beds are amazing! We have loved the closeness to the beach as well as to St. Augustine and Jacksonville. From the youngest at eight months old to the the oldest at 68, we have all loved our stay! Mt five-year-old especially loved the big bean bag chairs. Thank you! The Dixon Family

Awesome property for family getaway

Our family had such a great experience at this property. From the great customer service provided by the owner with reservation and questions I had to the great accommodations, cleaness and comfort of the property. It was a lovely place to stay.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5
I am always a bit wary about what I will find when I book a vacation rental but, in this case, I was blown away. O'Cottage by the Sea is even better than I expected -- what a joy! The house was very clean, smells new (not like air freshener, lol!), and was in excellent condition. The owner was very quick to answer any questions we had and even offered to send us Groupons and newsletters for things taking place in the St. Augustine area. I am happy to recommend this house to any other travelers because you won't be disappointed!

Our stay at O'Cottage By The Sea was one of the best weekends my family has ever had! The house was beautiful just like the pictures! And it had everything we needed and plenty of room for everyone. The owner was friendly and responded promptly to any emails/phone calls I sent. We were walking distance to the grocery store, a pizza place and a chinese food restaurant. We enjoyed take-out from both places!
We were in town for my daughters wedding which was held at The White Room on the rooftop. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue for a wedding! The house was close enough to the venue, just a short drive away into historic St. Augustine. We had plenty of room at the house to have our hairdresser and make-up girl come and do all the bridal party and the moms! The house was also a short walk from the beach and we got to see our first ever "Moonrise"…it was an amazing end to a perfect weekend!
I would recommend this beautiful home to anyone! We hope to stay there again ourselves one day!

Clean, cozy, and felt at home

  • 5 of 5
Wonderfully clean and fresh cottage. We felt so at home here and hated to leave. Luckly for us, we were able to add an extra day at the last minute and stayed an extra night. Our kids were happy here and so were we! The house is comfortable and had everything we needed to make lasting family memories. Thank you for sharing this gem of a home with us!

Fabulous home and stay! Perfect weather! Home is well-appointed, well-maintained, and neat as a pin. Loved the decor and feel of the home. It was airy and beach-y and tasteful. Lots of room for us to spread out and have our own space. A 2-minute walk to a brand new grocery store and the beach! Lots of fun to be had in St. Augustine. Great art galleries and no shortage of options for eating.

Lovely beach house

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at O'Cottage in Vilano. The house is tastefully furnished, extremely comfortable and quite spacious. The neighborhood is very quiet and we enjoyed the short walk to the beach, restaurants and supermarket. Morning coffee and cocktails on the deck weren't too bad either,

From the Owner

Vilano Beach is a special area, with the beach on one side and the bay on the other. We love that you can walk to restaurants and shops! Vehicular traffic is pretty minimal and it is quiet and peaceful. While the bustling activities of historic St. Augustine are just a five-minute drive from the house, they seem a world away!

Activity and Interests

Vilano Beach is located at the intersection of the Atlantic Ocean and the St. Augustine Inlet. Drive your car on the beach ($3 per day collected Memorial Day - Labor Day) or walk on for free and watch shrimpers, pleasure craft, and dolphins on the water! Vilano Beach is a skim-boarder's paradise! Fish off the Vilano Beach pier or at the ocean's edge.

Tired of the beach? Drive (or walk!) over the Ursina Bridge into St. Augustine to enjoy favorite tourist attractions including, Ripley's Believe it or Not! Museum, the Fountain of Youth, and the Castillo de San Marcos; shopping and dining along St. George Street; tours on the Old Town Trolley. Walk through Flagler College's campus, where parts of "Animal House" were filmed. Rent a scooter and zip down the cobblestone streets and admire the architecture.

Drive a little further to visit the St. Augustine Alligator Farm and the St. Augustine Lighthouse (two of my favorites!). Have lunch or dinner at the nearby Conch House and sit in a "nest" overlooking the water (be sure to try the calamari with banana peppers) or, if you are patient, wait for a table at O'Steen's for a seafood dinner.

Hop in the car and enjoy a quick and easy drive on A1A along the coast to Ponte Vedra Beach, where you can shop and dine, or enjoy the spa and golf at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club or Sawgrass. If you need more golf, check out World Golf Village ("where golf is king"), about 15 miles away; you can also catch a 3-D IMAX movie and visit the World Golf Village Hall of Fame.

Not one, but TWO, outlet malls are a 20-minute drive from our beach house. You'll find the JCrew, GAP, Aeropostale, Tommy Bahama, Nike, Bose, and Coach stores (among others) at the Premium Outlets and Kate Spade, Dooney & Bourke, Lucky, Off 5th, Gucci, Cold Water Creek, BCBG at the Prime Outlets.

  • Our two-story beach house has four bedrooms, two full baths, and two living areas (the family room is downstairs; the living room is upstairs). Enjoy morning coffee (or evening margaritas - yum!) listening to ocean waves and feeling ocean breezes on the big front deck. Each floor has a living area (equipped with a flat-screen TV and blu-ray player), a queen-sized bedroom, a bedroom with two single beds, and a full bath; this set-up is perfect for two families sharing a vacation to have their own floor and have a little privacy at the end of a great day of sight-seeing, swimming, sunning, and relaxing! The kitchen is on the second floor and is open to the living room. You'll want to be a kid again and sleep in the cozy bunk beds on the first floor (the bottom bunk is highly recommended for napping and reading) and lounge on the over-size memory foam beanbag chairs in front of the 60-inch TV. There are hardwood floors throughout, except for the tiled baths and entryway. The fully-equipped kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The upstairs bath features a jetted tub and dual sinks. The home is equipped with a washer and dryer. There are ceiling fans in each of the bedrooms (except for the bunk room) and the common living areas. Everything is new and clean in this non-smoking, pet-free home. Cable TV, Wi-Fi, and unlimited local and long distance phone calls, too!
