Perfect location. Every room has an oceanfront view. Quiet and relaxing. Rooms have everything you need. Lots of little extras. Super clean. The staff is super friendly. The hotel offers beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. Dog friendly!!! A little enclosed doggie relief area. Plenty of places to walk with the dogs aside from the beach. Breakfast is provided. A few min walk to Publix, liquor store, shops, and many restaurants. The pier is less than a 10 min walk. Everything you could need is within walking distance. Downtown is less than a 10 min drive away. Great place. Always felt safe. Will be back many times. We stayed in a corner studio King.

Hotel's Favourite
Saint Augustine Beach House never disappoints. My husband and I have stayed here several times and it just keeps getting better and better. The last time we were here it was during Covid so they weren’t offering many things. But a lot has changed since then. Fist what I love the most is the resort is pet friendly. Well pretty much a lot of the places in ST Augustine are pet friendly. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Checkin process was fast and they were very informative in regards to what they offered. The rooms are very spacious and well equipped. They have a sink full size fridge coffee maker microwave no stove. But you can always bring a small burner. The mattress is very comfortable and the views are amazing. You wake up in the morning to a beautiful sunrise and the sound of waves. Can’t get any better. They provide blankets for your four legged baby😊 and chairs in the balcony. You don’t have to bring anything other than your clothes. They provide beach chair umbrellas and towels, all hassle free. They also offer breakfast. Delicious. They do have a menu that you select what you want but everything is fresh. No powder eggs!!!!!!!! That’s a plus. Please keep it up. And it’s complimentary. Walking distance is a Publix and pizza restaurant. All the other attractions are roughly 10 minute drive. If you are looking for comfort, pet friendly couples getaway or just a place to relax I highly recommend staying at St Augustine Beach House. This is my husband and my four legged baby Stewie favorite place to stay!!!!

We did not want to leave. It is right on the ocean in a convenient spot. We hope to return. We would be willing to plan a whole vacation around staying at that beach hotel. You walk out the door and there you are on the beautiful beach. The balconies are an added touch.

Great view of beach! The place needs to update the worn out furniture and mattress. It was the worst, most worn out mattress I have ever slept on! They put a cheap foam topper on the bed, which slept very hot. Chairs are mismatched and seat cushions are worn out. For the price, it was not worth it. Although the view was nice, I would recommend staying somewhere else.

I almost don’t want to write this review because the secret will be out. The SABH is probably one of the most perfect places in the Vilano Beach area. It is directly on the beach .every room is a beach view. The room itself is spacious and has everything you could want and need for a comfortable stay. We were there for a mid week get away. The staff was great, very helpful and friendly. Dog friendly and perfect for pups. We were missing our pup, but got to interact with other dogs. Breakfast every morning. You pre order what you want and it is ready within 5 minutes of letting them know when you’re ready. Beach views made it great people watching of the beach all hours of the day. Watching the sunrise each morning, watching surfers in the early evening, or just watching the waves. If you can’t unwind and relax here, you probably can’t unwind and relax anywhere. There is a Publix across the street to pick up essential snacks, as well as several walk to restaurants. We know we will be back again.

Everything was great but certain breakfast items. The scrambled eggs, egg/sausage casserole, watermelon were just fine. The exceptions were French toast, pancakes and syrup which were absolutely tasteless. You might consider fresh orange juice instead of the canned. We are returning in 2025 but would love to see some changes in menu items. Increase the rate if you must and give us better tasting food items. Thanks, Karen and Paul Rogers

We just returned from a three night stay and we really enjoyed it. The staff is very friendly and responsive. We had a problem with the air unit and it was fixed right away. The best part was watching the sunrise from bed and coffee on the balcony that switched to wine in the evening. The free shuttle was a wonderful surprise. Their breakfast was good with a variety of choices.

My husband and I visited the Saint Augustine Beach House for the first time and it was Wonderful! The view from our room on the beach was gorgeous. We enjoyed a sunrise and sunset everyday from the luxury of our private deck and our bed!! The room was very clean and comfortable. We appreciated the nice kitchen with large refrigerator. We were as promised, only steps to Vilano Beach and the Beach House provided lovely full size folding comfortable beach chairs with a table and pockets!! The beach towels were large, pretty and accommodating. When greeted upon our arrival we received a menu to fill out for the week, and it was the best breakfast you could ask for everyday. Our favorite was the Frittata!! All mornings we enjoyed a different hot and or cold meal. Just perfect. Coffee maker in the room and fresh cookies at the desk. The office staff provided everything we needed at all times. The housekeeping was superb and enjoyed clean and fresh linens and towels at our request. I want to shout out to the remarkable friendly staff: Pamela, Kalima, Chris, Grace, Eleanore, Marla, Nancy, Kevin, Wayne. You all made us feel taken care of and made sure we had everything we needed. Thank you. We want to come back. I miss my Beach House already!! Lovely and a great get away. I would love to add photos, however this is written from a lap top and they are on my phone. The book in the room you provided was very nice.
