For quite a while I must admit I been using this method to sync my files. This has been problematic, files not really syncing in real time can be a pain in the ass, sepecially when you're making changes on front-end and want to see those changes on the fly.
So, do yourself a favor and change to rsync. To do so, you just need to edit your vagrant file for something like this:
config.vm.synced_folder "./", "/vagrant", type: "rsync", rsync__exclude: ".git/"
This way you're using rsync and you're excluding your git folder. You can add other folder there. Now, when you start your vagrant box you have to do this:
$ vagrant up $ vagrant rsync-auto
And your files will be synced automatically.
