"Tin Shed Revival Cabin" is a perfect secret romantic getaway nestled away in a wooded lot on a quiet Vilano Beach Street. The quaint "cabin in the woods" is just a leisurely 6 minute stroll to the beach or the neighboring tennis courts. You will know you have come to a one-of-a-kind place when you park and approach the cabin through a small path in the wooded lot. Outfitted with tasteful furniture, antiques, art, beach decor and a large comfortable Murphy (pull-down) bed, you will find this cabin to be a very cozy and unique retreat experience! A small screened porch with comfortable seating extends the living space outdoors and beyond to the wrap-around deck with seating in front and back. The cabin is stocked with soft and fresh linens, TV, and all the kitchen and bath amenities you will need for your stay.

The Tin Shed Revival Cabin sits in a historic Old-Florida neighborhood and shares a wooded property on the marsh and Tolomato River with a ca. 1920 home where author Sinclair Lewis, first American author to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, once lived. The unique property is wooded with large old oaks, palms, palmettos and fruit trees and is surrounded by other quaint old-Florida homes.

Small place, view was nice but nothing out of this world. Beach distance was more that expected. Bathroom was small with no windows and poor ventilation that caused excessive humidity. Definitely the town of st. Augustine was beautiful. Need to dinning at restaurant early and expect at least 45 min or more to eat.

Quaint cottage with lots of character!
5/5 stars
The cottage was very quaint and had lots of character, a microwave and would have nice. The area was nice and close to alot of resturants and places to go. I have to say there were alot of mosquitos and this was not good for being outdoors day or night, we like being outside in fresh air and the weather was beautiful during our stay. The porch and deck were nice and the grill was fantastic. The screen door needs some work but still nice. Thanks for a nice time and the use of the cottage.
- Lynette

Lynette, we are so glad you loved our little cabin and the surrounding area! We will make sure to take a look at the screen door and see what needs to be done. Thank you again for staying with us, and we hope to have you back in the future!

5/5 stars
I have been to St. Augustine many times and it's nice but a bit touristy. This is the first time we stayed in Vilano Beach. It was amazing. The beach was beautiful, the restaurants were fantastic. The cabin was very small but well done. It is set back into a wooded lot so you get the feeling of being away from it all. Sitting in the screen room gave the feeling of being in the mountains, while the beach was just down the street. The owner was great to work with.

Tremendous place in a somewhat wooded neighborhood was quite a treat. The communication with iTrip was top notch, worked through the somewhat difficulties of finding the cottage, to getting free tickets to hop in/ hop off tour. All in all, great trip and would return in a flash.

It was perfect! We love staying in different homes. Tiny homes, houseboats, tree houses etc. Tin shed revival was just what we needed and expected. Very cozy, close to beach and great restaurants. St. Augustine was a few miles away but we couldn't wait to get back and relax. Sitting on porch at night. On the beach until 6pm reading a book. Definitely recommend.

My husband and I were obsessed with this little cozy place! It felt like the beach shack of our dreams!! Everything was comfortable and clean!! The kitchenette did it’s job and has everything you need!! The bathroom was clean and the shower has shampoo, conditioner and body wash in case you forget some!! Our favorite parts was the screened in porch, how cozy the whole place was AND how close it was to the beach!!!! Spent most of our time by the beach and would come back for snacks and refreshers. It was the perfect set up, can’t wait to be back!!!

Tin Shed Revival
4/5 stars
The “shed” is a unique property that offers a casual getaway surrounded by palms and oak trees for a very private feel. We enjoyed the seating spaces inside the screened area and the outside deck. The house was clean, but the outside space could have been cleaned more- decks and walkways swept, mats shaken out. The outside shower is great and perfect for an after the beach rinse. I would suggest adding a hook or two to hang a towel or clothing. A microwave would be useful although space is tight as it is. My wife would have appreciated a extra towel or two as well. Overall, great location, comfortable and a totally relaxing space. We would consider staying again.

Our Favorite Place!!
5/5 stars
This little, hidden cabin was by far the most incredible place! My husband and I enjoyed the secluded, peaceful, gorgeous, romantic stay as we celebrated our honeymoon together. The cabin had everything we needed and was just a short walk or drive to the beach and town center! St. Augustine is the most precious town and the cabin literally was a dream! We hope to make this cabin our yearly vacation spot!
- Maci

Maci, Thank you so much for the fantastic review! We do hope you choose to make this your yearly vacation, we would absolutely love to host you:)

The cabin was exactly what we were looking for, the perfect place to stay for a couple. Super close to the beach, only a five minute walk or you can just drive to the public access and park straight down the road. Villano Beach was perfect for current times, quiet beach with social distancing. We really enjoyed our stay and we'll be back. Also david was super helpful in answering any and all questions we had.

A gorgeous spot tucked into a beautiful, private landscape lush with tropical trees (and even some plants I wanted to take home!) The little cabin was impressively clean and provided a sweet retreat with all of the appropriate amenities, including little extras like tennis rackets and beach chairs. Caleb and I had a wonderful, romantic time and spent a lot of time on the nearby beach. We never wanted to leave.

My husband and I loved the Tin Shed! He wanted something woodsy and I wanted to be by the beach and this was the perfect compromise. The space was perfect and enchanting. We wished we able to stay longer. It was a close drive to St. Augustine and a quick walk to the beach. Vilano Beach had great restaurants as well! We will absolutely be visiting again!

beautiful retreat
5/5 stars
The Tin Shed Revival is a perfect little retreat spot. Near the beach and a grocery store, also just over the Usina Bridge and St. Augustine. One of my favorite things, though, is the little private garden around the screened porch. Palms, palmettos, and twisty oaks tower above you. Also, when you're lying in bed, the view continues with two surfboards in the rafters. A tranquil, beautiful spot.

My best friend and I booked this cabin for our mommy retreat weekend away and we loved it! David and Robyn are wonderful hosts. The cabin was clean, and had everything you need for a weekend away. It was minutes from historic St Augustine and a short walk to a gorgeous beach! Only complaint is the mattress is firm! I prefer soft but if you don’t mind firm you’ll love it!
