Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

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 Anastasia OConnor

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.

Anastasia OConnor purchased this house in 2000

Why Anastasia OConnor chose St. Augustine Area

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!

What makes this house unique

Totally renovated home! The beds are so comfortable. O'Cottage by the Sea is bright, uncluttered, cheerful, and welcoming.

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

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!

Lovely house for group or family in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Short walk to the beach and grocery store. Handy to historic downtown plus relaxing restaurants on both the ocean and intercoastal. House was nicely decorated and had comfy memory foam on beds. Great outdoor shower with low spout for feet and gear. Responsive owner if an issue arises. Would recommend to anyone who wants to be near the hubbub, but prefers the beachy. Laid-back vibe of Vilano.

Value, location, and more

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Very reasonable priced, especially when considering it over a hotel and the location is great. Easy to book and easy to checkin. House was clean, spacious, room for lounging, and a quick walk to the beach. Plenty to do in St. Augustine and hope we can get back one day to see more.
