About the property

Enjoy the unspoiled sand and sea of old Florida at the incredible Vilano Beach vacation house Coastal Haven! Vilano Beach sits right across the intracoastal waterway from downtown St. Augustine. You get the serenity of a private beach house plus all the fun of St. Augustine!

Coastal Haven includes three bedrooms, room enough for the whole family on this beach vacation. Two queen beds and two trundle beds provide sleeping arrangements for a maximum occupancy of 8. There are two full bathrooms, a full size and well equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, a fish cleaning station, and more.

The downstairs includes a screened porch that is large enough for gatherings of up to 20 people, for a great entertaining and cook-out space. There is also a double shower, a bathroom, a laundry room, and a room with 4 twin beds – a great place for the kids to stay separate from the adults upstairs.

The top floor contains two bedrooms. The Ocean Room faces the beach and allows you to watch sunrises from your bed, if you choose. The Bridge Room faces west with views of the St. Augustine skyline and the Vilano Bridge – a great bridge for walking or running in the pedestrian lane. Complete kitchen with everything you need, including the sunset balcony. The living room is great for watching the ocean or the flat screen tv. Coastal Haven also has a sunrise porch with 2 futons that can accommodate additional guests. This porch looks out over the top deck and our secret beach path. Our fireplace is only for decoration, please do not attempt to use it.

Walk down your private path, and viola, you’re at the beach. Vilano Beach sits at the southern end of Veterans Island, the northernmost barrier island in St. Johns county. Vilano Beach ends just to the south of the Coastal Haven vacation rentals home, at the St. Augustine Inlet. Going north along the beach from the home will take you through miles of relatively private beaches towards Ponte Vedra Beach. This area is a haven for sea shell collectors. The Vilano Beach Pier is just around the corner, a popular fishing location.

It’s not quite as remote a location as it sounds. Just a two minute drive over the bridge is the St. Augustine historic district. Plenty of attractions, shopping, food, and…activities. There’s always an event happening in St. Augustine, and you’ll be so close with this rental home. St. Augustine itself is central to all the goodness of north Florida. Jacksonville and Daytona are both thirty minutes away, Cape Canaveral and Orlando in under 2 hours, Tampa in 3 hours. You can be at leave your St. Augustine vacation rentals at 6am, and be in Disney World by 9am. It’s all possible with First Choice Florida Vacation Rentals.

Coastal Haven is truly ‘old Florida’. We strive to maintain its character.

We look forward to you staying with us.

I’ll be back

  • 5 of 5

I will be back to this property! While it is older, it is charming and quirky- like me!! Great view of the beach and the sunset over the intercostal. Plenty of room for all of us and our stuff. We did a lot of cooking and lacked for nothing. The location is so much easier to get to old town St. Augustine (walk, bike or drive) v. staying further south on A1A at St. A or Crescent bch. As a UF alum, I really appreciated the ties this place and it’s family’s history have to UF. It’s not new or fancy and yet so comfortable- feels like home.

Nice place for the money.

  • 4 of 5

Screened in porch on first level is perfect for a cookout and was always cool enough to be comfortable. The living area was very nice. I would suggest to the owners that all the light switches be labeled for what each controls. The lights on the first level screened porch were slightly unscrewed and we just assumed that was how they were turned off and on. For the walk to the beach, we used a big wheeled beach cart. The neighbor, Alan was very nice and gave good tips for the enjoyment of our stay. He also knew the history of the property which was interesting to learn.

Fun and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need for a great week away from it all. The walk to the beach (mentioned in a previous review as long) is not bad at all - across one open lot to rear of home. Plenty of room and everything works well.

Nice house with lots of character but longer walk

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and had lots of character and history (built in the early 70's). The house was well stocked and had a very cool porch downstairs. The one drawback was that the walk to the beach was long and difficult on the sandy path.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. The home is true old Florida! The home does sit back off of the ocean with the walk being just over 100 steps.

Beautiful beach and sunrise each day! Home is fully stocked and pretty comfortable.

  • 3 of 5

Loved the beach house we rented in Vilano. It was stocked with beach toys, some cooking supplies and a ton of towels and sheets. We loved our sunrises every morning and the screened in porch downstairs was awesome for the kids to play! The house could use a deep spring cleaning but other than that we loved it!
