“Fantastic getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Clean. Main thing this place is clean. And they allow pets! But there are NO pet smells, no air freshener is sprayed to make me "think" it's clean, i mean they really truly take care of this place kind of cleaning. It is a great getaway, the kitchenettes are perfect for a small family or just 2. As for the staff, everyone is friendly and super helpful, and will give you anything you need if you just ask. Just an amazing place taken care of by amazing people. This is our destination choice for getaways to the beach from here on out. You must stay here if you want super awesome beach access, want to bring your pets, and have a nice place to hang with family and friends.

Room Tip: All rooms are beach front view, they usually save the first floor for people with pets. It is an op...

You couldn't ask for a better location, what an AMAZING view! The room was spacious and very clean; there were plenty of towels and pillows, but if we needed more, we could get them. The staff was extremely friendly and seemingly there just to make our stay more enjoyable; one even helped us carry our bags up the stairs to our 3rd floor room (we did not expect that)! While we didn't watch much TV, it was great to have such a nice (and big) flat screen with tons of channels. The free continental breakfast was an added bonus, but with the fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, we didn't need it. I would whole-heartedly recommend this place and we will DEFINITELY stay there again on our next visit.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor and loved it!

The personnel at SABH are amazing. They are extremely friendly and volunteer to do just about anything for you, including look in on a stressed pup and successfully find and send back a tiny diamond earring! The location, rooms, and bountiful free breakfasts are great, but hands-down the people who look after you at SABH make this THE best place to stay!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean and are virtually the same. The hotel is so small it really doesn't mat...

Many thanks! We are a small hotel - but we agree the rooms offer a good amount of space to stretch out so that our guests always feel at home. We also agree with your comments about the beach - Vilano has a beautiful stretch of ocean front and we love getting to see the dolphins as they drift by the hotel!! We are all looking forward to your next visit - thanks again.

My husband ,our baby (a mini-schnauzer/dachshund mix), and myself had a fantastic time at the Beach House! The views of the ocean were amazing from our private balcony. We went to sleep everynight listening to the sound of the ocean. Everything about the place was amazing. The staff was very nice (: Paul helped us out alot! It was located within walking distance to a few restaurants and a grocery store & close to downtown St.Augustine.

We can't wait to come back :)

I just returned home from a delightful stay 4/8/2013-4/13/2013 at The St. Augustine Beach House on Vilano Beach, St, Augustine, Florida. My companion Mickey (my mini dachshund) and I couldn't have been happier. The beach was just outside our sliding glass door that lead to our private deck....the room itself was VERY nice and clean.....the staff made us feel right at home. Walked the beach morning and evening. Historic and beautiful St. Augustine is just a stones throw from the beach house and the grocery store and resturants are nearby. I would HIGHLY recomment this for a true beach vacation. Already made reservations for next year. Thanks for making our vacation a great one.
