Discover paradise right across the street from Vilano Beach! Southern Comfort, our Mediterranean-style house, awaits you with a heated pool and waterfall, a spa, tropical landscape, ocean views from the balcony, and a charming self-contained in-law suite!
The whole family is going to love our swimming pool. Landscaped with large rocks and featuring underwater stepping-stones and other fun features, it will keep the kids entertained for hours, while you sit in the garden with a cool drink and a good book. At night, turn on the heated pool lights for a magical display of beauty! Plus, by popular demand, the spa and pool are now heated as of February 2012!
Just indoors from the pool area is our open-plan living room and dining area. One entire wall of the living room opens up to the outside, so you can merge the two areas. Featuring hardwood floors, ultra-comfortable sofas, and a TV with VCR and DVD player, the living room is the perfect place to unwind after a long day at the beach or sightseeing in historic St. Augustine, just minutes away.
There's room for the whole gang here, especially when the adjacent dining table gets pressed into service for games. And with the kitchen close at hand, it's easy to keep the snacks and drinks coming as the group reconnects over favorite movies, music, or perhaps a rousing game of charades.
The kitchen at Southern Comfort is a joy to use, offering stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and an island with work-sink that doubles as a breakfast bar. Even if you're planning to eat out for most of your vacation, just popping leftovers into the microwave and filling the coffeemaker each morning are a pleasure in such surroundings! And if you do feel ambitious, the kitchen is fully stocked with all the equipment and dishes you need to make and serve a feast.
The living space on the ground floor of Southern Comfort is spacious and beautiful, but it's not the only one in the house! On the top floor of our home is an entire self-contained "in-law" suite, complete with a kitchenette, dining area, living space with couches and chairs, bedroom, and access to the balcony! This is ideal if two families or groups are traveling together, or if some members of the party want greater privacy. Everyone's under one roof, but some can live completely separately if necessary!
There are 5 bedrooms altogether at Southern Comfort, softly carpeted and designed for maximum restful slumber. The master suite contains a luxurious king-size bed, a TV, private access to a balcony, and all the comforts of home amid warm-toned walls. The master bath is a designer's dream, with jack-and-jill sinks, marble fittings, and both a soaking tub and an open-air shower. Go ahead, pamper yourself a little (or a lot!). You're on vacation, in one of the most beautiful places in the world!
The other bedrooms each contain 2 twin beds, and a full-sized futon and 2 rollaway beds are available if you need to sleep 12 people. And in addition to the master bath, 3.5 additional bathrooms are on hand, so there is never a waiting line! The design of each is distinctive, right down to the half-bath in earthen tones with a jazzy Mexican-style mosaic!
But as beautiful and comfortable as Southern Comfort is, its best merit is its location. From our top balconies you can see the pure blue Atlantic shimmering in the sunlight, and Vilano Beach is just a block away, via our private access path. This is a wide, uncrowded, family-friendly beach, perfect for everything from sunbathing to surfing. And if you can get out early one morning, the sunrise is unforgettable!
Southern Comfort is just minutes from historic St. Augustine, and within easy drive of world-class golf, shopping, dining, & sightseeing. Come see it all, and then return each evening to your private slice of heaven beside the beach!
