CAPTAINS COTTAGE - 2 BEDROOM OCEANFRONT HOME WITH A SPARKLING POOL.

Ponte Vedra Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6.

Captains Cottage is a charming, casual, ocean front house. One of the few homes in the area with a swimming pool, this cozy, character-filled rental is a perfect beach spot for a romantic getaway or a small family vacation. The classic A Frame cottage was designed by renowned architect Bob Broward. It features a unique floor plan that offers open living spaces on three levels, each connected by a classic spiral staircase. The oceanfront deck has plenty of space for soaking up the sun or enjoying outdoor meals. The 2nd floor loft has a twin-over-double bunk that will sleep 3 children or 2 adults comfortably. Here you'll find a library of ecclectic titles that can be enjoyed as you laze in the comfortable lounge chairs. The 3rd floor master loft has a full bathroom with a tub, queen bed, and an ocean front balcony that provides miles of spectacular Atlantic ocean views. The entire family will enjoy tanning on the pool deck before splashing into the crystal clear swimming pool.

Suitability:
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful holiday. Captain's Cottage was great--private, great views and close to everything we needed.

I ended up playing at Cimarone and St Johns...St Johns was a fantastic course and one I'd love to play again.

AMAZING OCEAN VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
Rented Captain's Cottage for a week-long 'stay-cation' in May. The first two days/nights were stormy and it was amazing to watch the ocean during the storm. The property managers were fabulous in that they sent someone over after the storms passed to clean the decks and the pool area...without being asked to do so.

The house was clean and well-maintained given that it was built in the early '60s. There were lots of reading materials, a DVD player (and DVDs), as well as some jigsaw puzzles. The best part - great view of the ocean from anywhere in the house...second floor, first floor, master... even the shower and jacuzzi!

It was helpful to have a fully equipped kitchen in which to prepare meals.

The pool was chilly in early May, but once you got over the initial shock, it was fabulous to splash about your own pool in the afternoon sun. Bring lots of sunscreen; you'll need it for the beach and pool.

I had not planned to wake up so early each morning, but the sunrises were beautiful - and who can sleep with that much light? It wasn't until the next-to-last night that I discovered the switch in the master bedroom that lowers a blind over the top-floor east window. So if you want to sleep in a bit later, you probably could.

Overall it was a superb vacation in a unique house with spectacular views. Will definitely recommend the property to others.

BACK AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Captain's Cottage a year and a half ago and could not wait to go back this November. My husband and I find it to be perfect for a two person retreat/ getaway. The shells this time were even better than the last time. We found tons of beautiful shells. The views from this house are amazing! We loved sitting on the deck and taking in the amazing view of the ocean. We were thrilled to see dolphins just off shore two days in a row. We brought a pair of binochulars with us and were able to watch them for a long time, playing and jumping out of the water. I love that you can walk on the beach for miles and only see a few people here and there. We found some great places to dine this time as well. I highly reccomend Aqua Grill for a great dinner close to the house. Also don't miss out on the Metro Diner just a short drive to Jacksonville Beach. Amazing breakfasts!! We love Thai food, and Tuptim Thai, also pretty close to the house, was very good! Being November the nights were chilly so the pool was too cold to use, but we still enjoyed some really great Sunny weather during the day.

LOVE LOVE THIS HOUSE!!

  • 5 of 5
This is the most amazing house ever for a romantic getaway. Perfect location right on the beach, convenient both to Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine. And the house is an architectural gem, full of all kinds of neat nooks and crannies and details, beautifully decorated, and bathed in sunlight all day. If this house were for sale and I could afford it, I would buy it in a heartbeat. It has a magical quality to it that is not entirely evident from the wonderful photos of its rooms. It captivated me and my two adult kids who stayed here. We plan to return again!

The only downside is that there is a bit of a privacy issue--no curtains/blinds on any windows and no walls between the second floor and third floor loft bedrooms. So while this is a very romantic place for a couple or even two cooperative adult couples, a young family might have to get creative about finding couple time and would have to be careful when getting out of the shower on the third floor (master bedroom) if there are kids in the beds on the second floor who can gaze up at the third floor shower from that location via the opening in the floor for the spiral staircase. You can also hear any noise or see any light on any floor of the house from any other place inside the house--so that really means that everyone has to agree to go to bed at about the same time every night.

The lack of curtains was not an issue for me in winter, because there was no one on the beach at night, but I wonder if you would feel "exposed" a bit in warmer weather when folks are out walking on the beach at night and could see into the lighted house. The house is elevated off the beach, so maybe the problem is not as significant in warmer weather as it appeared it might be.

With those caveats, which were minor issues with us, we felt that this house was special and wonderful in every way and we just loved it. It was clean, well-maintained, and had every amenity one would expect to find, including great wifi. I honestly did not want to leave.

I have rented many houses through the Internet for vacation, and this one will always stand out in my mind as the most extraordinary and special house I have ever rented. Even in its imperfections it was totally charming.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed and appreciate the unique charm of Captain's Cottage. Being an oceanfront, A Frame, built in the 1960's, it is truly one of a kind. The wood floors, exposed vaulted ceilings, and massive windows are truly spectacular. As for the privacy issues, you raise a good point. Fortunately, the house is set back far enough from the beach, and being elevated on stilts, it is very difficult to see into the house from the beach. We look forward to having you back again next year!

A WEEK IN PARADISE.

  • 4 of 5
The views were spectacular, but early in the mornings the sun would blind you. The beds weren't as comfortable as everyone had said and there was a spider infestation..to which one of the girls were bitten. Aside from that, it was the most relaxing, gorgeous, peaceful, stress-releived, much needed vacation.

Owner's Response: I'm very glad our guests had an enjoyable time. The views at Captain's Cottage are spectacular. The entire Eastern side of the house is windows. I wish I had been notified of the spiders prior to this review. We would have had that taken care of immediately. We do have quarterly pest control and they will come out anytime any bugs are seen.

Sincerely,

Wren Beach Rentals

GORGEOUS, QUIRKY, STUNNING & UNIQUE

Gorgeous, Quirky, Stunning & Unique
  • 4 of 5
If you are looking for the wow or 'X' factor, this is certainly the go to place for a one-off unique holiday experience. Stepping from the house onto the decking and the near-deserted golden clean beach is absolute luxury & the Atlantic was lovely and warm - enough for swimming and boogey-boarding. The sunrise over the ocean in the morning is spectacular, as is the moonlit sea on a clear night & yes, we did see dolphins gliding through the water on a morning. We have never stayed in a home like it, and as this was our honeymoon, it was as special as you can get.
The downside is that there is no shelter from the severe sun as there are no shades or blinds at the vast windows - so you are woken up by the sun at sunrise and the aircon is a must. The openplan arrangement of the bedrooms makes privacy a bit of a problem and if our children were younger we would have been concerned at the low-level balcony on the mezzanine floor. Also, the uneven floors in the corner of the property made eating at the breakfast table really feel like you were on a ship!
The house had all the amenities we needed and they were of good quality. All in all, a lovely property to spend precious and special time with loved ones.

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cottage for a week in October. The weather was wonderful, the beach is beautiful, and the accommodations were perfect. The pool was an added feature that we used every day. The location of this property is perfect - far enough off the beaten path to be private, but close to St. Augustine for some fun sight-seeing and great food. We plan to return in 2011 -- with the rest of our family. Thanks for a wonderful experience!
