Newly Renovated 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath
Welcome to "Flip Flops"! Purchased in April, 2019, this adorable 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home has been completely remodeled and is ready for visitors! Located in the heart of Vilano Beach, you will find that you are very close to shopping in historic St. Augustine, restaurants, sight seeing, and of course, the beach. Situated on a beautiful corner lot, canopied by a blanket of sprawling oak trees, "Flip Flops" is a cozy 2-story home decorated with colorful hues of the sea. The open kitchen, dining, and living area offer a comfortable space for everyone to gather. The kitchen is fully furnished with stainless appliances, cookware, blender, plates, glasses, silverware, and more. The dining table seats 6 and there are 2 bar stools for additional dining. The cozy living room has seating for 6 around a brand new 55" TV.
The bedrooms are all located upstairs. The master bedroom has an inviting king bed, dresser, night stands, walk-in closet, and a TV. The en suite bathroom features a step-in shower, garden tub, and a double vanity. The other two bedrooms each have a queen bed, dresser, and night stands. One bedroom also has a small desk. These bedrooms share a full bathroom with a shower/tub combination. Conveniently, the laundry room is located on the 2nd floor and has a full size washer and dryer. Downstairs is a den with a queen sleeper sofa and another TV. This offers a nice "getaway" for kids who want to watch movies or hook up a gaming system.
Just a Few Flip Flops Away
In the back yard, you will find a 20 x 12 deck with patio furniture for 8. There are two Bluetooth speakers on the back deck for you to use and enjoy some tunes while you soak up the sun. There is a gas grill in the garage. Feel free to roll it out into the driveway and have a cook out. We provide the propane for you! The front porch has a high-top table and chairs overlooking the shaded yard. The sea breezes are wonderful here and we highly recommend that you spend a few moments with your favorite beverage on the porch. Climb into the swinging hammock nestled under the oak trees. You're sure to meet many of the friendly neighbors as they make their way to the beach at the end of the road.
"Flip Flops" is one block from the beach. Grab some beach chairs out of the garage and make the short walk to the semi-private beach access at the end of the road. A quick stroll through the dune path and you will find yourself in the sand. Be sure to look both ways before crossing the street and always hang on to the little ones. The house and the beach are pet friendly, and we love our furry guests (as long as they are well behaved and house broken). The back yard is completely fenced, so you can let your pooch out. Please use the provided doggy bags to clean up after.
