If you think that a Florida vacation must include views of the ocean and be steps to the sand, then you’re in luck! Our Vilano Beach Cottages are right on the beach, come with all of the comforts of home, and offer luxurious appointments and amenities for an ideal romantic getaway in St. Augustine. Plus, our Cottages are just 2.2 miles from the downtown district, giving you quick access to all of the top St. Augustine attractions.

Our Vilano Beach Cottages Offer Access to Fun & Relaxation!

Among the 42 miles of beaches in the area, we think that Vilano Beach is the best place to stay for a beach vacation near St. Augustine! Being on a barrier island, it’s very private, always has seashells and shark teeth to discover, and because there are no cars on our section of the beach, nor any hotels nearby, it’s extra quiet too. You’ll also be able to catch views of both the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, possibly from your own private patio. Our St. Augustine beach cottages are a great fit for couples, groups or families who are looking for a peaceful getaway at the beach.

Enjoy the warm salty air and ocean breezes
near all of the charm and history in St. Augustine.

Dining & Restaurants

All of our private cottages on Vilano Beach come with either a kitchenette or full kitchen, so it’s easy to prepare your own meals, especially since there is a Publix grocery store conveniently nearby. But if you want to take a vacation from cooking too, then there are a wide variety of great restaurants for you to enjoy. For great views and fresh coastal cuisine, we love Cap’s on the Water and The Reef. But if you want to eat where the locals do, try 180˚ Vilano Grill & Pizza – we love the blackened fish sandwich, the hamburger (it’s our favorite hamburger in St. Augustine), and their pizza is great as well. There are also several great places within walking distance from the Cottages for you to discover as well!

Vilano Beach Activities

When you stay at our Vilano Beach rentals in St. Augustine, you’ll have access to everything you need for a St. Augustine beach vacation, including towels, umbrellas and chairs. Plus you’ll be just steps away from your own fridge full of refreshments, your own bathroom, and maybe even your own private pool, which we offer in a couple of our units! If you want to venture out from your cottage, you can fish off the Vilano Beach Fishing Pier, take a walk through the wetlands on the Vilano Beach Nature Boardwalk, rent a boat or jet ski at the marina, take a paddleboard tour, or rent a surfboard to hit the waves!

Enjoy the Best of Both Worlds During Your Florida Getaway

With a stay in our Vilano Beach Cottages, not only will you have easy access to all of the fun activities and relaxation on the beach, but you’ll also get to indulge with all of the luxury amenities offered by our main inn – Bayfront Marin House. Though the Main Inn is 2.9 miles from the Cottages, we’ll save a parking space for you in our private lot at 12 St. Francis St. so you can easily enjoy the gourmet breakfast, afternoon happy hour, and walkable access to our historic downtown. With a stay at Vilano Beach Cottages, you can really have it all during your St. Augustine getaway!
