Family fun at the shore
Direct OCEANFRONT! Newly-redecorated! The Great Wave at Seawatch of Vilano is a beautifully BEACHY condo that is the PERFECT coastal getaway for your next romantic retreat, couples weekend, or dream family beach holiday in our nation’s oldest city- St. Augustine! Ideally located and outfitted with your family’s needs in mind, the Great Wave will help you create memories with your loved ones that will last a lifetime. The Great Wave has the capacity to sleep 7 comfortably in 2 large bedrooms with attached bathrooms. The bright, spacious living room has a queen sleeper sofa and twin chair-and-a-half sleeper, both with cool gel foam mattresses so that everyone gets the ultimate restful night’s sleep. Both large, sea life-themed bedrooms are tastefully furnished and have comfy king-sized beds and both bathrooms are stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body bar soap, lotion, and make-up removing wipes. The oceanside Starfish bedroom has its own private door that opens out to the spacious screened-in patio overlooking the ocean, sand dunes, and grassy play area. The Starfish ensuite has a tub/shower combo with your choice of the rain shower head and/or the handheld massage shower head. The tub/shower and toilet are closed off from the single sink bathroom vanity area for greater privacy. The Starfish’s new king bed has a nightstand on both sides that have integrated USB ports for charging all your devices. The poolside Sea Turtle bedroom has a king bed equipped with an adjustable base and remote control so that you decide your own level of comfort. The head of the bed can be raised to improve sleep and for optimal TV viewing of the 42” Smart TV. Both nightstands also have integrated USB ports so everyone can stay charged. The Sea Turtle’s ensuite has a standup shower with a brand-new glass sliding door and a multi-setting massage shower head with handheld option great for washing off kiddos after a fun filled day at the beach. Bath towels and “sand-free” beach towels are provided and labeled for your use.
The Great Wave is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway in peaceful Vilano Beach. It is close to all the action of St. Augustine and the many local attractions that are only minutes away! The Great Wave gives your family nearly unlimited options in how you want to spend your valuable vacation time. Whether you want to relax on our semi-private beach with the provided beach chairs and sun shade canopy or in the chaise lounges under the umbrellas by the pool, it’s all up to you! Would you like to be on the ocean but away from the bothersome sand? Our screened-in porch provides the proximity to the sea combined with the comfort of a breezy, bug-free environment replete with lounge chairs and a new ceiling fan. The unique, staggered architecture of Seawatch creates a very special space where the view from the back patio will make you feel like you are in your own private paradise! Everyone will love the Great Wave’s easy accessibility as it is conveniently located on the first floor, a short walk from the parking area and our own boardwalk that leads to the beach. The front door looks out over the newly redone and sparkling pool so you can keep an eye on the kids and grandma :) Everyone can kick back poolside in the plentiful provided seating. The back door opens out to the patio which then leads to the lush lawn where family fun can be had with yard games like bocci ball or ultimate frisbee! The Seawatch tennis court is available to all guests staying at the Great Wave and tennis balls and rackets are provided for your use. If you would prefer to park your car and leave it parked underneath our covered and reserved parking space, you may do so and you may be able to save money on parking in St. Augustine by taking a quick Uber/Lyft ride into town instead of paying for the public parking garage or wasting time searching for on-street, metered parking. The Great Wave also has ample additional parking for guests so there is space for the whole family!
Want to explore your new surroundings? St. Augustine has trolley and train tours that run everyday and there is a variety to choose from depending on your interests, as well as horse-drawn carriage rides for those animal lovers. Walking Ghost Tours are popular and filled with local history and lore that is exciting for both young and young of heart. The San Sebastian Winery and the St. Augustine Distillery both offer free tasting tours daily. The exciting nightlife of St. Augustine awaits just over the bridge into town with a multitude of restaurants, bars, and activities all for your choosing. Since Uber and Lyft operate in this area, you can check in, drop your car and leave it parked till it’s time to head on home. Food delivery services such as DoorDash, Grubhub, and Uber Eats all operate in this area. If you prefer to stay in and cook, Publix grocery is only 0.3 miles away and our fully-equipped kitchen has everything you need to make memories with your family. Wake up with the sunrise and make breakfast special with our double Belgian waffle maker and large electric griddle that has enough surface area to cook up eggs and bacon for the entire family! Enjoy easy afternoon outdoor grilling on our porch with the George Foreman outdoor/indoor nonstick 15+ serving electric grill- no charcoal, gas, or lighter fluid needed! Just plug in and grill away with nearly effortless cleanup. Relax in the evening with a glass of the local award-winning wine from San Sebastian Winery or take a leisurely sunset stroll via the Vilano boardwalk over to the Town Center and Beaches Caribbean Restaurant and Bar for live music and outdoor seating overlooking the river. Unwind with cocktails while watching the sun sink slowly below the horizon.
Are you and your family nature-lovers? We are only 5 miles from the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park and less than 6 miles from Anastasia State Park with its over 1,600 acres of unspoiled white sand beaches, tidal marshes, maritime hammocks, and ancient sand dunes. You can also enjoy our very own wildlife viewing seating from our beach boardwalk benches and watch as pelicans and seagulls soar overhead. If you are a history buff St. Augustine is filled with living history such as the famous Castillo de San Marcos, which offers daily tours, and the nearby famous St. George Street known for local arts and crafts, shopping, restaurants, ice cream and more! If you are looking for more adventurous pursuits, local marinas offer boat rentals and fishing charters and a boat ramp is just down the road from the Great Wave. Parasailing, jet skiing, and helicopter rides are all on offer in St. Augustine. You can also rent bicycles, scooters, or take a guided Segway tour!

I really can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at Great Wave! Felt like a secluded little beach house, even as a condo, and you could hear the waves from the screened in porch. St. Augustine with the cutest shops and restaurants is such a short drive away (under 10 minutes) and the gorgeous beach just steps away. The unit has everything you need to cook any meal you'd like, coffee provided, and just cozy and comfortable all the way through. Ralph was wonderful and met us in person to show us the ropes of the unit so we felt so at home. The welcome bottle of wine from San Sebastian winery was so good and such a thoughtful touch! Already wanting to come back! Highly recommended.

Wonderful stay!
Rachel is probably the BEST VRBO host I’ve encountered. She has thought of everything - from the beach toys to kitchen supplies to mints by your bed. Switches are labeled so you know your way around the condo. The screened porch was my FAVORITE! Really enjoyed laying in the hammock and listening to the sound of the ocean. Super convenient to the beach, the pool, a grocery store and things to do in St. Augustine. I got a few good walks on the beach despite our cooler weather. We enjoyed seeing the Nights of Lights festival. Really hope to come back one day! Thank you Rachel!

Highly Recommend!
My wife and I loved our stay here. There were things for our baby already there, so we didn’t have to pack them and check them on the plane. The owners were VERY reachable and accommodating, which was super helpful. It is located directly on the beach, which was beautiful. Thank you!!!
