We enjoyed our stay here so much. It was a little crowded for 6 people, but it was clean, well equipped, and very nice. The house is very close to the public beach access but the beach still wasn't too crowded. The fenced area for the dogs is very convenient. I would highly recommend this property!!
Unit A week of July 4, 2016
Another great year at Vilano with the extended family. It is always the highlight of my year and I hope we will continue this family tradition for many years to come. Love the new bedding.
We had a great time at the Surfside Retreat. We were greeted at the door by one of Sally's employees. She was very nice and showed us around the unit. We met Sally later on. She was also very courteous and friendly. The unit was a great size and has newer appliances. It is right on the beach. We had a great time looking for shells and hunting crabs. I would defiantly recommend this unit.
What more do you need?
We started out very excited about our arrival, it worked out for us to check in earlier too! Sally was incredibly nice and was fun to hang out with. On Sunday, our 20th Anniversary, she left us a great bottle of wine to enjoy.
The propery, location, and comfort was totally impressive. We will be back again asap!
Just returned from a wonderful stay at Surfside Retreat. Sally really needs to update her website photos as the originals do not do this unit justice. Everything you could need while laying back relaxing is right here waiting for you. Just bring your bathing suit and sunscreen. Surfside Retreat is located close to Old St. Augustine without all the traffic and you have the advantage of the ocean right outside your door. Evidently there is good surf fishing right out there also since we observed fishermen everyday. Linens are top quality and the kitchen is fully equipped. Grocery is about 1/2 mile down the road - very convenient. Hope to return soon.
Steps away from the ocean, very clean and cosy!
The property is very clean and has everything you need. Beds were comfortable. The ocean is steps away and it was wonderful to be able to walk out in the morning, with a cup of coffee, to watch and listen to the surf. There is lots to see and do in Saint Augustine. Sally was very accommodating , making sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Our vacation wasn't long enough, we didn't want to leave! I highly recommend staying here......1000 times better than any hotel room. Thank you Sally and Cathy for making our stay so wonderful and easy!
