Sandwiched between perfect sunrise and sunset, your days at our Venetian Beach House has a lot to live up to. Enjoy sunny days on the beach front deck or, in winter months, from within the glass-walled atrium. The shore is just a few steps away, a location that's sure to rearrange your life's priorities in more ways than one. Open up the glass sliding doors and set onto the porch. Just a few more steps, and you are on the beach.<br/><br/>The Venetian Beach Front House is packed with care and detail to make your vacation that little bit sweeter. Gather in the living room for board games, pizza or general hanging out. Enjoy two larg...e couches, and a rocking chair, too. High ceilings, lit with cheerful down-lighters, make a classic, inviting space. A TV is a trusted last resort, but we think you'll prefer your backyard beach and morning sunrises more. Bring your laptop to the glass atrium and enjoy the wireless Internet while watching the waves lapping the beach. Turn on Skype to communally brag to friends back at home. <br/><br/>A long balcony spans the front of the living area. Sliding doors lead from the living areas, totaling an entire wall of oceanfront views. With a big deck one floor down, and steps leading straight on to the sand, your backyard jungle gym just got a lot less cool. <br/><br/>With the Atlantic Ocean for your backyard, beach views on display in your master suite and living areas, plus a large deck, how could you want for anything? Venetian Beach House does its utmost to ensure your perfect relaxation: a full kitchen, comfy beds and lots of toys. <br/><br/>Upstairs, three bedrooms afford beauty sleep in beautiful environments. The master suite rewards your family's top dogs with a king-sized bed and giant en suite bathroom. One floor above the living room, the master bedroom's views are even better. <br/><br/>Guests, whether children, teens or other couples, have plenty of space and storage in their two bedrooms. Sleep happily - waking for the sunrise or lazing 'til noon - in either the second bedroom's queen or either of the third's two twins. Sharing a bathroom, this is a great floor-plan for parents with small kids who need to oversee bath time. <br/><br/>A prime location near a charming 1920s-era surf town makes for great local exploration, whether along the beach or in the car. St. Augustine itself is less than 5 miles away, and - for those needing a Mickey fix - Disney World is a 90-minute drive. We're always happy to provide recommendations for either public golf courses or great local dog beaches - and there are plenty of both to choose from. Just ask! <br/><br/>Accommodate even your big group or entire beach wedding party, all in one area. Eight other vacation rental homes line the same stretch of pristine St. Augustine Beach, making a perfect block-booking opportunity. Ask us for details!<br/><br/>If a special occasion or deserved reward is in the works for your friends or family, consider renting all 3 houses together for one perfect vacation (Island Time Suite 1 (sleeps 6), Venetian Suite 2 (sleeps 8) and Yellow Sunrise Beach House 3(sleeps 6)). This is a welcome option for families traveling together for a special reunion.

Property is much improved since its been painted and well cleaned. Parking at this property is a challenge neighboring tenants seem to invite others who park in a way that block the garage to this unit. It's frustrating to not be able to leave when your vehicle is blocked.

First 4 days were a nightmare. The family next door had many local visitors, often into the wee hours of the morning. They were constantly loud (music and yelling at each other), drunk, and obnoxious. We even watched one of their visitors drive over the block wall in front of the building...obviously drunk. Walls have no sound blocks so we had to listen to the loud moaning (clearly the rednecks were having some sex after their guest left). We we about to leave for another location when we discovered they were leaving. I would never use this property again or any property that was multiple units.
We've stayed in St augustine before, along Crescent Beach. This time, decided to try Villano Beach area. Extremely pleased with that decision. It's so much closer to downtown St augustine, and the area is just generally better kept. This particular unit is in pretty good condition (some water damage on the ceiling, and other various things you would expect from a house on the sea), and we thought it was a wonderful setup.

The beach was totally worth it! The house was very cute but we had to remind ourselves that it looked like the pictures when it was new. Although there were plenty of towels and forks, knives and spoons it lacked most of everything else especially pans

Loved the beach. Only problem we had was master bedroom toilet leaked upon arrival but we fixed. Kitchen worked out great. Unit really needs to be updated but for a rental it works. We plan on returning to the area next year and will probably look for a larger unit for more guests.
The beach was great. The fact that this was a pet friendly property really fit our needs. The only negative comment we have centers on the quality of furnishings. The furniture and kitchen cookware needs up-dating badly. Taking care of this detail will make this unit extremely attractive to future vacationers.
