Need a cooling beach retreat for the summer heat? Or a cozy winter-time cottage to enjoy atmospheric swells? One vacation rental answers both: Island Time Beach House. <br/><br/>A perfect year-round ocean-front house offers the best of beach living, every day of the year. A glassed-in patio is the gorgeous spot you've always dreamed of. Morning coffee has never tasted better than when lounging on a sun bed, with the ocean in front and blue sky above. <br/><br/>A very bright living room has plenty of space and just the furniture you want at the beach: bamboo seating with thick, cushions. Throw open the wide sliding door...s - and leave them open - to bring the outdoors in. Here at Island Time Beach House, you have the Atlantic Ocean for a backyard! <br/><br/>Either the sunny living room or gorgeous ocean-front atrium are ideal for board games, enjoying pizza or general hanging out. Enjoy two large couches, and a rocking chair in the living room, with two indoor wicker sunbeds in the atrium. <br/><br/>The beach cottage kitchen smacks of 'home sweet home', with checkered curtains and matching cushions on the breakfast bar stools. Mason jars stock your essentials, and plenty of counter space gives your culinary imagination room to wander. Whistle as you work, enjoying family to join you at the breakfast bar. <br/><br/>A beach-front bedroom would feature what else but a palm-flocked bedspread? The master suite has its own Jacuzzi, a private TV and - best of all - an ocean-front balcony. Wake with the sunrise - earning magic moments all to yourself. <br/><br/>The second and third bedrooms are just as welcoming and equally beach-appropriate, with delightful shell and sailboat motifs. Here, find a queen bed and two twins, to perfectly suit a group of any make-up. <br/><br/>Pets are invited as well, as this is a proudly pet-friendly rental. They'll love playing with you on the beach - and might even take time out to investigate nearby parks and dog beaches. <br/><br/>Ideally located in a 1920s surf town, Vilano Beach smacks of laid-back Florida charm. Hit the water from the boat ramp, just a half mile away, or explore historic St. Augustine just 5 miles away. Reach Disney World in 90 minutes, an easy day trip option. Island Time Beach House lets you alternately seek the action or ignore it completely.<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. If you need more room, consider renting these houses that are just a few houses away - Casa Sunrise (sleeps 6), SeaHorse (sleeps 8), Dolphin (sleeps 6), Egret (sleeps 8) and Flamingo (sleeps 6)<br/><br/>Our Venetian Ocean Front Beach house is located at 3930 Coastal Highway.

The town house was in a great convenient location. Right on the beach, which was fantastic, close to the grocery store and St augustine. However, basics, updates and maintenance is really needed. The kitchen was not stocked well to cook for my family of 6; it was lacking some of the basics like measuring cups, a large pot for spaghetti, 13x9 baking pan, cookie sheets. The master bed felt like it was 20+ years old, sheets were poor quality material. Water pressure in the showers was not that great. Also, the tub in the master bath leaked and would not drain properly--yuck. It even started to leak through the floor into the family room below. We called for maintenance on the first day, but no one ever showed up. Finally, the washer & dryer were in the garage--which is not a problem, however, it was just dingy, dusty and dirty down there--it should be included on the housekeeping list.
Property was clean and comfortable; rental company is annoying

The property was fine - good location and it was clean. It could use some updating - there was loose plaster over the bathtub for instance. But overall, it was in pretty good shape for a rental property, and it was close to St. Augustine and on a nice beach. Lovely views from all the rooms.

Poorly maintained at nice location

Nice location but rental was in poor condition. Paint peeling, dirty carpet,dirty ceiling fan, yard filled with trash, furniture extremely worn, tub drains clogged, round toilet seat on oval toilet, filthy throw rugs, had to buy a sharp knife, frying pan with lid can opener didnt work. Bare wires where deck lights should be, mildew on blinds and water marks from leaks everywhere. Would be a nice place if fixed up.

Love the ocean view. Loved the layout of the beach house. Needed a few updates.
Excellent rental met all our expectations

Our stay in this property was quite enjoyable - overall we were very pleased. Great beachfront location with panaoramic view! It was furnished and equipped quite adequately, and we were comfortable during our stay. Our minor recommendations: fix the gate latch on the deck and update the dvd player -- it was difficult to get working reliably.

Key was not in lockbox, but the Property Manager responded promptly with a newly made key, along with some helpful sight-seeing advice for the town and environs. He also addressed some maintenance concerns quickly and satisfactorily.
Staying at the Ocean

It was difficult to find in the dark when we arrived. It was difficult to open key lock in the dark. A light should have been left on. It was a condo not a house and it had many stairs. The coffee pot filter holder was crooked=didn't drip coffee thru well. Had to get neighbor help up set up the TV, later even when I put new batteries in it, didn't always work.Used jacuzzi once last night jets not conntrollable went all over the bathroom, took lenghthy time to fill 1/4 full, then couldn't drain water out.Liked the retaurant tips, Aunt Kate's and Caps close by the best. Loved our view but water came in the master bedroom and the living room with the nor'eastern.Would recommend with fixing things as stated.

If you are a perfectionist, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a place to sleep after a great day at the beach, which is steps away, then this place is for you! For those that are picky, The place had some water stains on the ceilings, the

My family and I had a wonderful stay here. The door downstairs needs work as it doesn't shut properly and there could be a few more kitchen items but over all a wonderful place. Can't beat the views and for me, its only a couple minutes from historic district and located perfectly for us. Everyone had a fantastic time! Only other thing is the water pressure could be better. Other than that...perfect! Staying there again when I come home on leave! :) Thanks so much Vacation Rental Pros!
Island Time Beach House St. Augustine

This was a perfect family vacation for everyone, including our dog. It was more than just a vacation for us as it's the first time we've all been able to get together like that, and it was the perfect place. Even the family staying next to us were such a delight to meet. Thank you so much for a beautiful place to reconnect with the family. We hope to be able to do it again soon. The 2 weeks spent in St. Augustine were such a blessing in more ways than one.

overall the place was great for a family and kids. i would recommend going around the condo and checking for lights that work and ones that dont. i would recommend some lighting on the outside decks for the evening.
Wonderful Ocean Stay
Left on 01/25/2011 for a stay in January 2011 | Joan S.
The Condo was very nice. My goal was to hear the ocean and you could see it, hear it regardless of weather due to the location on the beach and the wonderful atrium and the master bedroom with a window to the sea! Hear the surf was relaxing, healing and therapeutic. The Condo was nice, the beds comfortable and in easy distances to where I wanted to go. A few more kitchen items would be nice for those who want to cook in instead of eat out. Other than was a perfect stay!
