About Frederick Jenkins

I have lived in Jacksonville for twelve years and have worked as an emergency physician in the area since completing my residency at Shand's hospital. I have traveled extensively along the Florida coast and can tell you that northeast Florida is one of the most beautiful and pristine parts of the state. The coastal wildlife, from our vast bird preserve across the street to the rich St. John's river fishery, is unrivaled.

Frederick Jenkins purchased this house in 2002

Why Frederick Jenkins chose South Ponte Vedra Beach

Our house is located on the northern segment of South Ponte Vedra Beach. This is a particularly desirable section of this beach because on the opposite side of A1A, the coastal highway, is Guana River State Park, which includes a large tidal estuary and a bird and wildlife preserve. Such a vast game preserve produces huge numbers of pelicans, ospreys, egrets, cranes, and wood-storks which fly over the house and feed in the ocean behind the house and the marsh in front of it. There is no commercial glare along this section of the beach. The dunes and beach are in their natural, un-replenished state. The color of the sand is a gorgeous coral hue.

What makes this house unique

The house is large (3000 sf) and new. The construction is solid poured concrete and the appliances and HVAC are brand new. As such, tenants enjoy a vacation right on the sand without having to tolerate the musty, beach-shack experience that is commonly encountered. As the photos portray, the house is elegantly appointed and gorgeously decorated.

Awesome weekend in Ponte Vedra

  • of 5
The house was everything we hoped it would be. Fred and Jessica were very accommodating and attentive to our various requests and questions.
However we were allowed to bring two small dogs with us, which was a big plus. So one concern we had was that one of the screen doors on the back screened - in patio didn't latch securely and we had to block the door from opening to prevent our ocean loving dogs from escaping. We will definitely return to the same property if we get the urge to stay in that area again. Thank you Fred and Jessica

Fabulous Home! Stunning Location and Views!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here for a special occasion and we were well pleased with how tastefully the home is decorated. Lovely furnishings, updated kitchen/bathrooms etc., and impeccably clean. What makes this property most special is the private catwalk to the stunning beach location along with three outdoor spaces to relax and take in the view. The house layout is perfect for a large family or group for a special getaway. It is well-equipped with most everything you need for your beach getaway. We were all so happy with the property that we're already planning to come back and stay next year. Oh, and the owner is extremely responsive and easy to work with. Thanks for an amazing stay!

Accommodations Need Some Love

  • 3 of 5
This is a great home in need of some repairs. It doesn't really sleep 12 even though it says it does. It really only sleeps 8 comfortably. When we arrived the home appeared to be in order but it didn't take long to realize it was very dirty. The house cleaner isn't doing the job correctly which I brought to the owners attention. I contacted the owner and he refunded my cleaning fee, which was the right thing to do. It has great space for a large group, but our guests said that the beds were very uncomfortable in the room that has 2 beds. They are just a mattress on slats of wood. The kitchen is in need of cooking supplies to match the size of people it will accommodate. The owner did try to get a few baking utensils in, but it needs more. All the wood decking needs some serious repairs. When we first got there my son-in-law cut his toe on one of the many nails that are popping up on the upper deck. The outside furniture is in need of repairs also. On our last day there, my daughter was taking that one last picture of the beach and leaned on the railing for the wood walk that goes over the grassy dunes to the beach and it gave way and she fell into the grassy dune area. Bruised and sore, and might need a visit with the chiropractor, but could have been hurt real bad. I contacted the owner and let him know what had happened. He said his repairman was going out to check it out. It appeared as though band aid repairs had been done before, but the whole structure is very wobbly when walked on and really needs to be replaced, which I let the owner know. I offered to let the owner know what improvements I felt could be done to upgrade the value of the property for future renters, but haven't heard from him. It really is a great space, just needs some improvements. The beach is very quite so if you are looking for a lot of things to do right close by, this isn't the house for you. It is about half way between Jacksonville Beach and St Augustine, so taking a short drive either north or south will put you in the middle of a ton of stuff to do. We wanted the peacefulness of an empty beach and we got it. The back yard is very spacious and seems to be well kept with nice landscaping.The owners were great to work with as they tried to attend to some of the problems as they occurred. Thanks Fred and Jessica!

Owner's Response: I would like to thank the reviewer for the constructive criticism and would like to address the concerns expressed. The deck and catwalk were inspected only a few months ago and all was in order. Salt-air, however, is vicious on metal fasteners and apparently a nail rusted and became loose on the railing. That said, the existing railing has been repaired and next week all rails will be replaced and the nails will be replaced with hardier deck screws. The catwalk has always swayed slightly when walked on so we are adding braces to dampen this motion. The beds referred to are platform beds and are designed to not incoporate box springs. When I found out prior to arrival that the reviewer was planning to do a fair amount of baking during her trip I purchased extra bake-ware. The kitchen is supplied to accomodate parties of 12 (and a bit more) comfortably. Regarding the cleanliness of the house there is no excuse for anything less than a pristine presentation at arrival, which is why I refunded the cleaning fee. We have used the same cleaning service for over 10 years with only rare complaints. This matter has been discussed with our service so I don't expect this to be an issue again.

We strive very hard to maintain a house that provides our guests with a singular vacation experience.

Wonderful House with Beautiful Upgrades!

  • 5 of 5
This house was very beautiful on the inside. It has all the upgrades. The kitchen is huge with all stainless appliances, lots of cabinet space & granite counter tops. There is crown molding along the ceiling in all the rooms. All of the bathrooms have granite counter tops & upgraded faucets. The master suite on the first floor is also huge with a big stand up shower & jetted tub. The deck area off the 2nd floor was also nice with a great view of the ocean. There is a nice area of grass off the back porch for the kids to play. If there are any negatives I can only come up with two minor things: 1) The back screened porch has part of the screen that was loose & the screen door did not latch 2) There were no DVD players in the house even though the website stated they were supposed to have them. Also, I would not recommend sleeping more than 10 people comfortably. Overall, this house was amazing. I would definitely recommend this place.

Annual Family The Players Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My expectations and that of my family were far exceeded. The accommodations were spacious, clean, lots of unexpected amenities and in a great location for both attending the golf tournament and enjoying the beauty of the beach. So much better than staying in a hotel as we have done for years. as our family is growing we look forward to another opportunity to stay. Many thanks to Fred for making this VROB experience a very good one from the start of the process through our departure. I would recommend to anyone seeking this location.

Owner's Response: This comment is very gratifying as we have worked hard to provide the type of experience detailed here. We look forward to the opportunity to provide a similar experience to all who stay in our beachhouse.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I highly recommend staying at this house. The inside was clean, open, modern (HDTVs, WiFi, etc.), the kitchen had everything you need. The outside had something for everyone -- a screened in porch, a sun deck w/beautiful view, and a lower shaded porch with access to/from the master bedroom. The grassy yard was an added plus...easy on the bare feet and our dog loved it. Can't say enough about the beach. It's almost private..even on the wknd there were very few people around. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you Fred, everything was wonderful!
