About your hosts

This Vilano Beach, Florida vacation guest house rental is a welcome retreat created by artists Gilda Strutz and Susan Bradley. Susan makes candles in her shop, Southern Lights Candles, located across from the Castillo de San Marcos fort in downtown, Historic St. Augustine.

“We have enjoyed creating this tranquil space and we invite you to savor the beauty surrounding Crows Roost…

The golden shafts of sunlight streaming through Live Oak’s, the sunsets reflecting lavender in the marshes, the flight of beautiful birds overhead, the sound of waves & refreshing sea air enticing you to stroll along the beach”.
