Property Details

Updated: May 22, 2015
Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Cross the Vilano Bridge to Surfside Retreat and your wonderful, stress free vacation begins. In fact, the ocean is your front yard. The panoramic view from the living area is like none other. You can view the ocean from two of the three bedrooms in this unit. The sunrise from the ocean side deck while you enjoy your coffee, tea or hot chocolate is absolutely beautiful (just make sure you arise one morning during your vacation to view). Bring your camera to capture the beautiful Florida sunrise and sunset. You are a stones throw from the ocean. This condo is directly on the beach.

The living area has a sofa, loveseat, recliner, wicker slumber chair and leg rest, audio system and 40" LCD TV. Dinning room has a glass top table w/6 chairs. Kitchen is large enough for four chefs to prepare a stupendous meal without getting in each other's way (plenty of counter top space). Kitchen has a bar sink w/wine rack. Eat at the counter with four bar stools, then wander back to the deck to take in the breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean.

Master suite has queen bed, dresser/mirror, two chests, 2 closets, DVD player, 32" LCD TV. Master bath is a full bath with dual lavatories. Bedroom #2 has twin beds, dresser/mirror, nightstand, walk in closet, adjoining full bathroom that also adjoins the hallway. Bedroom #3 has an extremely comfortable queen futon, chest/mirror and closet. All three bedrooms are carpeted, the remaining floors have tile w/area rugs. There is a phone for local calling and surrounding areas. Non-smoking.

Vilano Beach Town Center has a Publix Grocery with Pharmacy and at least four restaurants....Beaches on Vilano is a waterfront restaurant with an island flair. The Vilano Beach Town Center is less than a mile from the condo – well within walking distance. There are several other hot local spots to frequent within the town center all while remaining close to the condo. Three miles north of the condo are three other restaurants....The Reef (oceanfront), Cap's on the Water and Aunt Kate's (both on the Intracoastal with outside decks and great for sunsets). The Kingfish Grill is across the bridge and don't forget our other 300 restaurants in the St. Augustine area that you will have to try or just stay home and grill out on your own outside deck. St. Augustine has many places to visit - come stay with us and see the many sites.

About the Owner

I am a native Floridian and have lived in St Augustine since 1995. This condo was my primary residence until 2011 when my husband and I moved further inland.

Loved it, loved it, loved it! Thank you, Sally and Stephanie, for a wonderful stay ..... My precious love asked me to marry him on our first night there, so maybe we'll be able to celebrate our happy memories back at Vilano Beach for many years to come! Baloo, our dog, loved it, too!

Beautiful Sunrise and Moonrise

  • 5 of 5
Spent a great month at Surfside Retreat. The home's location right on Vilano Beach was a wonderful asset. The home has its own private walkway to the beach..It was so nice to wake up each morning to a beautiful sunrise. The moon rises were also spectacular. The home itself was comfortable equipped with all necessary needs. There was a large open floor plan with plenty of windows to enjoy the views. If you are planning on bringing a pet, the location is very convenient. Across the highway is a nice neighboorhood great for dog walking. ( Small dog park located in this neighborhood). Walking a dog on the beach on leash is also possible. Vilano Beach is very nice. It is only a short ride to St. Augustine, a great town with lots to do. There is a Publix Supermarket and restaurants near by. If you like a beach town Is low key and relaxed, Vilano is a good choice. You can be as busy as you want to be. There are plenty of activities available from kayaking on the inter coastal waterway to visiting America's oldest city. It's all right there and Surfdide Retreat is a lovely place to enjoy all that Vilano Beach has to offer.

Owner's Response: It's not that someone is just renting your condo, it's that you are able to share the beauty of Vilano Beach and our community with people. I want everyone to have the same enjoyment that I have living in this community.

We LOVE Surfside Retreat this condo is home away from home. I love this condo it's quiet, relaxing, and the view is amazing. We enjoy this condo because its right on the beach. The best part is the fact it's not in one of those busy Condo complexes it's very quiet and all you here is the sound of the ocean. The condo is very clean so I don't feel like I have to clean it before I move my family in and finally I love the owner she makes you feel very welcome and is always there to help if you need anything. The condo is also beautifully decorated:)

This place is fabulous. It is spacious, decorations well appointed. The kitchen has everything you need to cook or entertain. You can be on the beach in 30 seconds and the view is awesome. It is also near grocery stores,shops and very good restaurants. If you want all the comforts of home with the beauty of the beach, this is the place for you. I have been there twice and plan to go again.

Owner's Response: We spent so many years in this unit and are so happy to be able to share it with others. I hope that future renters will enjoy it as much.


From the Owner

We originally purchased this property for a family retreat away from our businesses in Jacksonville, yet close enough to keep in touch if needed.
