5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

Had intended to stay just one night but room and staff were so great I stayed an extra night. It was like having a studio apartment - bed, couch, coffee table, dining table and chairs and kitchen. Favourite part was tiled floor. It made the place bright and clean. Spent many relaxing hours sitting on the balcony reading and listening to the waves. Am travelling with my dog and he was made to feel as welcome as I was. Hope to get back to this area again and would not think of staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Lower floors cheaper. Could see ocean and hear waves.

Two of our top priorities at The Beach House are 'clean' and 'comfortable' guestrooms - so we thank you sincerely for your positive comments. We are all very happy that you were able to extend your stay by a day and look forward to welcoming you and your dog back very soon for another visit.

If you want something thats out of the normal then this is it. Why stay in the busy part of St.Augustine when you can stay here!! This place is just like home. From the moment you get there and the staff shows you your room and makes sure its just the way you want it. It was my girlfriends birthday and they were able to set up wine and pretty flowers and wine glasses and made sure it was perfect. The rooms have a great view of the ocean with room to sit down on your patio. Brand new tile floors with king size bed and new kitchen this place is great. You walk like 50 ft to the beach and boom your there. Publix and shops are approx 100 yards away you dont have to drive anywhere. Then the best part you can just drive 5 min over the bridge to st. augustine.If you stay here you wont be disappointed. Dont waste your money and stay somewhere else. Im from FL and live in FL and I havent found another place like this so take advantage.

Stayed three night Easter week and can't think of a single complaint. Arrived early and they called to let us know when the room was vacated and would be ready within the hour. Traveled with two dogs and they were very accommendating.

We originally were looking to stay in St. Augustine beach, but our Floridian son, recommended Vilano Beach instead, and we were very happy he did. Then we got extremely lucky finding The Saint Augustine Beach House. Chad who helped check us in was extremely nice and down home friendly. In fact down home friendly is a great way to describe this place. It's like your staying with family. The room were very nice, spacious and clean. AND THE VIEW IS SPECTACULAR!!! We would definitely stay again!! While there you can walk down to the pier, walk around the neighborhood and see the gorgeous home around Porpoise Point, or wake up early and go barefoot from your room right down to the beach and catch a beautiful sunrise. Relax on your balcony, every room has one, drink a cold one and watch the sunset, moon rise and the peaceful ocean waves.

Room Tip: Try to stay 2nd or 3rd floor, far left (north) rooms as possible.

I stayed at this hotel for the last week. First you absolutely have to mention the view.... ITS GREAT. I have never seen a hotel motel with a better location, Its next asset is the people that work there, They were an failingly friendly. And that means a lot to me. If the people are interested in making your stay a good one, things will always work out. I liked the tile floor, Near the beach this is the only way to go. the bed was good if a bit high. the frig microwave were very convenient. the air conditioner in the front of the unit was fine, The one in the bed room was so LOUD it made me laugh, I didn`t need it because opening and close the door to the deck regulated the temp just fine. Oh did I mention the view and the sun rise. Also there is a major chain food store within walking distance. Some very nice restaurants close by. And the major tourist attractions of st. Augustine are only minutes away. All in all I WILL DEFINITELY STAY AT THIS HOTEL AGAIN

Room Tip: third floor was great But no elevator. next time I will stay on the second floor,

I cannot say enough good things about St. Augustine Beach House. My boyfriend and I went on our first vacation together this past weekend and were blown away by our experience. The staff were all so wonderful, they were there if you needed anything at all. We requested a second floor room, and oh was it worth it. The view was perfect! Our room was spotless when we arrived. It was exactly the room we had hoped for! The room was so spacious, it felt like a home away from home. I was very worried when it was said that it was a pet-friendly hotel that the rooms would be dirty or have evidence of pets, but there was nothing to be found! A great relief to us.

The room setup was perfect with the bed by the balcony. You could lay in bed and enjoy the ocean breeze and watch the sunrise every morning. What an amazing way to start the day!

The location was fantastic as well! Two minutes from a Publix in case you needed anything, and a 10 minute drive from the hotel to historic downtown. We had considered staying downtown, but now we are so glad we didn't! Location was fantastic on a beautiful beach.

Everything was beautiful at the St. Augustine Beach House, and I would stay again anytime! Definitely recommend for a romantic weekend away or just to get away from life for a while.

Room Tip: Definitely go with a second or third floor room. View is better and you don't have to worry abou...

It is such a pleasure to read that your experience at The Beach House was everything you had been hoping to find for a special oceanfront stay. To know you felt at home and had a great vacation is absolutely the best compliment we could receive. Our oceanfront balconies do offer a perfect place to view the amazing sunrises over beautiful Vilano Beach! We do hope you will consider yourself ‘family’ and return to visit with us again very soon. Many thanks for sharing your thoughts.
