The FUN HOUSE! Pool/spa, gameroom, playroom, multiple masters, 7 min to STA!

Family-friendly St. Augustine vacation home in Vilano Beach, near Anastasia State Park
The Vilano Villa is not just a place providing beds for heads, it is part of the vacation (see our sample vacation itinerary below)!

It is 4,000 square feet of fun, relaxation, and convenience, 74 seconds to the beach and 5 minutes to historic St. Augustine.

Vilano Villa will be what the kids tell their friends about when you go home and what you remember and long to escape to when life gets busy again.

Because let’s be honest, you don’t want to rent just a home to sleep in during your vacation, you want to make it up to the kids for all the times you said you didn’t have time, you want to laugh until your stomach hurts, you want to create little mermaids and merman, you want to enjoy fierce competition at the gaming table, you want to take an unexpected nap or escape to an unexpected place in a new book, you want to rekindle your romance in the hot tub at midnight, you want to enjoy drinks as you talk for hours, you want more and we want more for you, and that's how we designed the Vilano Villa….for you, for more!

House layout:
Main Floor (sleeps 4 + a pack n'play for little ones): Library, Formal Dining (seats 8), Bedroom with a queen bed that connects (Jack and Jill style) to the master bathroom, Master Bedroom with a king bed and connects to master bathroom (master bathroom has double vanity, walk-in shower, jetted tub, and separate water closet), living room, kitchen, informal dining (seats 6 but has a leaf that can be put in to seat 4 more), 1/2 bathroom, and laundry room.

Upstairs (sleeps 9 plus 4 sleeping bags that kids can layout on bean bag chairs or sofas): Second master bedroom has california king and a twin daybed with ensuite bathroom, second upstairs room with two full beds across from a full bathroom, third upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and is next to the above listed full bathroom, media room with air hockey table and TV, play loft with children's playhouse.

Outdoor full bathroom as well to shower off before or after getting in the pool.

4,000 Square Feet of Fun and Memories
-Epic pool parties will be happening! Enjoy private pool and waterfall hot tub (pool has safety gate with automatic closing fence to keep the little ones out- on the side of the house and can be easily installed for your stay). We provide all the pool toys and towels— you bring the swimmers!
-Sneak out from the master bedroom when the kids go to bed with your private access to the hot tub and pool!
-It’s time to movie-thon! Kick back in leather electric recliners or sprawl out on the bean bag chairs and enjoy the 65” HDTV and surround speakers. Need a drink? Enjoy the mini bar at your service in the same room!
-Game on! Play games and create memories in the game room with air hockey table, gaming table, and plenty of games to keep everyone busy.
-Nights are never boring at the Vilano Villa, when the sun goes down— gather around the fire pit and roast smores, laugh about old memories, and enjoy drinks.
-Entertainment provided for the oldest to the youngest. The little ones will love the children’s loft stocked with toys for all ages. Whether they create an imaginary meal at the play kitchen or delve into the provided dress ups, we provide the way for them to have hours of fun and laughter.

4,000 Square Feet of Relaxation Awaiting
-Escape to the library where comfort and high-end design invite you to stay for hours! Melt away from the world in an exciting book. Surf the web at one of our Restoration Hardware desks. We designed this room with adults in mind to meet your needs and exceed your expectations. Free high speed private wifi and wonderful book selections all await!
-Let things get a little steamy in our main floor master bedroom walk in shower with 7 shower heads.
-Soak up the good life in a large jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom (second master also has a large garden tub). Enjoy a good book, afterwards wrap up in our oversized soft white bath robes.
-Wanna get that tan everybody is noticing? Lay out on our resort-type loungers as you enjoy a book, a drink, watch the kids swim, or take that much needed nap! Or bring over the oversized umbrella and enjoy the shade.

4,000 Square Feet of Making Your Life Easier
-Coming with multiple families? Let both groups of adults have a master bedroom with two master bedrooms! Main floor master bedroom has large ensuite bathroom and his and hers walk-in closets. Second master bedroom upstairs is a family suite with a king bed and twin day bed, has two walk-in closets, ensuite bathroom with walk in shower and separate garden tub.
-Pool days are easy at Vilano Villa, an outdoor bathroom is just steps from the pool so kids don’t have to run inside to go the bathroom and everyone can easily shower off.
-Grill up some steaks or your fresh catch under the covered lanai outdoor kitchen—it’s easy to have the parties indoor or outdoor with an outdoor kitchen!
-Got babies? So do we, so we have everything you need so you don’t have to travel with it all! ----We provide at no extra cost: pack n play, high chair, babies and childrens’ toys, and children’s dinnerware.
-Packing for a beach day is almost as bad as packing for vacation, unless you’ve got Vilano Villa providing you with everything but the sand and waves! We provide: beach chairs, beach towels, a beach umbrella, a beach tent, boogey boards, and plenty of beach toys.
-Partying hard means a lot of laundry, we get it! Throw the wet laundry in the large laundry room and run loads when you have time. No need to iron anything, instead enjoy the steam dryer and less time doing “real life” things and more time living the beach life dream!
-Have a resident chef? Our professional chef and restaurant owner (the homeowner) designed this kitchen for your needs in mind! The huge kitchen easily accommodates several people preparing food and is fully equipped to cook even the largest meals. Double ovens means double the tasty baked goodness. In addition we provide: KitchenAid mixer, Belgian waffle maker, and plenty of pots and pans.
-Tankless water heater means no matter how many people are showering in the four showers and two bathtubs after a day at the beach or in the pool, you’ll always have hot water.
-Nobody wants to work on vacation but we understand sometimes you have to so we have several desks and high speed private wifi to catch up.
-Have a lot of people, two dining room tables allows for great dinner parties where everyone has a seat to enjoy amazing food, drinks, and long conversations. The table in the kitchen is setup for six but has a self-enclosed leaf and can seat an additional four. The formal dining room seats ten. That’s up to 20 people enjoying dinner and one another’s company creating happy memories for the mind and the belly.

Your vacation itinerary will come to life in the Vilano Villa and it will include so much more than when you rent just any home.

Day 1: Pool Party and BBQ at the Vilano Villa Beach House!
The private pool and waterfall hot tub, stocked with pool toys for all ages, will keep your kids and adults happy for hours. For those that would rather chat or sunbathe, we have an out door sofa, table, loungers, club chairs, ottomans, and umbrella. There is also an outdoor bathroom just steps from the pool for convenience. At lunch time use the outdoor kitchen under the covered lanai.

Day 2: Beach Day- We Provide the Beach Gear and Toys!
Pack up our beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach tent, cooler, and beach toys and head for the beach just a 74 second drive from the house or a 5 minute walk! Surfside Park has parking, bathrooms, and outdoor showers. Whether you’re jumping the waves, building castles, or catching rays, we want to make sure you’re outfitted for an incredible day at the beach!

Day 3: Rainy day? No Problem, We’ve Got You Covered For an Epic Game Day and Movie-Thon
Nothing can ruin a day faster than rain….unless you’re at the Vilano Villa where we make rain days your favorite days! Enjoy our game room with air hockey table, board games and table, mini bar, and 65” HDTV with surround sound speakers, bean bag chairs, and leather electric recliners. The little kids will also enjoy the children’s loft playing house at the play kitchen or having an epic Nerf war. The only rule at the Vilano Villa is that nobody gets to be bored!

Day 4: St. Augustine
A trip to St. Augustine is not complete if you don’t explore the oldest town in America, named by Good Morning America as the best place to go to feel like you’re in Europe without needing a passport. Explore the old bricked street of St. George street, delve into the culinary scene with more restaurants per capita than anywhere else on the East Coast, shop to your hearts content, and drink in the culture and history of this magical place. Call us for personalized concierge service to help you plan.

Day 5: Recovery Day for Mom and Dad- We’ve Got Your Back!
We know sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation— traveling is fun but can be exhausting. We want to make sure you have time to completely rejuvenate before you go home. While the kids are entertained in the game room, toy loft, or at the pool, we invite you to escape to our stocked library and curl up on the soft leather recliner with a warm blanket to slip away to another world in an amazing book. Or turn on some soft music as you soak in one of two large bathtubs (the main floor is jetted) pour in some bath salts (provided) and let the world disappear. Wrap up in a soft white bathrobe afterwards (also provided). Or let things get steamy in our huge walk in shower with six shower heads.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

4/5 Good

We had a great time at the house!
The house is very big! The bedrooms are larger than expected. Everything was very clean. The owner answers texts immediately! The gas was out for the weekend which we were initially upset about but the top of the stove is gas and the bottom part for baking is electric. We used the stove outside to boil potatoes for Easter dinner. The owner was upset and did everything they could to get it back on. The gas company said they were short handled. We still had everything except hot water, fireplace, heated pool, and gas for the stove. The owners gave us 100 dollars to order in if we would like to. The pool is so fun! We had a home on the beach first and the owner for that cancelled and we had to take this one. The owner was so nice about the entire process of putting our trip off due to covid. We never had issues. I would say the one big negative is the price per the location. We paid more money for this house and it was off the beach by two blocks. Fun trip though !! The game room was so nice we had to pry the teens out of it. Lol We used their bikes, beach toys, and a cooler they had.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Location!!!
Great Location on Vilano Beach/St. Augustine! Just a short walk to the Atlantic coast beach yet such a quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed this tastefully decorated home and quiet backyard pool and tub. Beautiful bridges and waterways to explore with a short drive to St Augustine's historical Castillo and St. George street. The kitchen is well-equipped and 2 dining areas gave us plenty of room to unwind. Loved the front porch area for morning coffee and the fireplace for chilly evenings. Our 2 year old grand daughter loved the upstairs play room kitchen. Would hightly recommend this VRBO!

5/5 Excellent

Great House!
Great house for all ages. Great location and ease of whole stay was great.

4/5 Good

Spacious, lots of amenities!
This was a great place to stay for a semi large family getaway (10 folks) during current pandemic. It had plenty of space if you still want to keep safe distance. Kitchen was well stocked and good place to cook and connect with a family. Paired with a nice dining area and open to the living room meant you could always talk/eat. Also liked that there was no TV in the adjacent living room, meant less noise/distraction. Was pretty clean. Nothing gross, but the dishwasher was not working properly so ended up handwashing our dishes. Mild inconvenience which the hosts were responsive too. Did have to rewash some of the dishes in the cupboard before we used because the person before must not have realized the dishwasher wasn't working properly. Pool had debris in it, but it was too chilly to swim so we didn't use much anyways. In general tiptop shape, comfortable beds, clean living areas, etc. Good amenities, able to wash clothes, couple of bikes, etc. Really liked the neighborhood. Pretty easy walk to the beach, nice park nearby with basketball goals and open field. Tennis courts. Very walkable and quiet. Felt very social distance friendly, no crowded boardwalks, etc. It felt like home. We were able to settle in and be an extended family for a bit, and do that very comfortably/safely. Very grateful for that, its been a weird year!!! Thanks!

5/5 Excellent

Our group of 11 stayed over the weekend. This is a beautiful home in close proximity to the city. The owner was very quick to respond and help with any issues we had. Wonderful weekend! Would definitely recommend this home!
