Paradise The property was wonderful. The location and access ro the beach was perfect. In the morning, we would enjoy coffee on the deck while watching the dolphins. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need to cook a meal. Publix was within walking distance. It was easy to get to St. Augustine to tour the area. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Wonderful Home!! This home is simply wonderful with full amenities. Everything that you will need for a great experience is basically provided. It was recently remodeled and has all the modern conveniences. The home offers great views of the ocean from all 3 levels. The pool is an added benefit, that the kids love especially coming in from the beach. Wren Beach Rentals does an excellent job of keeping you informed with all the information you need before, during, and after your stay. David & Daphne are true professionals, are highly experienced in the local market, and do everything possible to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible.

Amazing property! Property is in a great location and extremely well appointed for hosting a large family or group of friends. The property is walking distance to a grocery store and several other shops and local casual eateries. It is ocean front to one of the best and least populated parts of Vilano beach. We were there over a summer holiday weekend, and the beach was not overly crowded even over that weekend. The pool and hot tub are great, and all the outside space on multiple floors is fantastic for gathering. The property has two washers and dryers, which was a game changer for us with multiple people staying at the house. All the appliances are higher end and very efficient, which made the stay that much better. Couldn’t ask for a better experience.
