Ponte Vedra Beach House Rental Photos and Description
3BR, 3BA, Sleeps 8
Sandpiper's Nest is a beautifully decorated oceanfront 3 bedroom 3 full bath home on a high dune in the oceanfront community of South Ponte Vedra Beach, between Jacksonville and St. Augustine. Located in a very private area of single family homes (no high rises or high traffic here!), it is serene and quiet....yet the house is just 5 miles from historic St. Augustine and 15 miles from posh Ponte Vedra. Decorated in an upscale cottage style, with ocean colors, vaulted wood ceilings, and top quality furnishings, Sandpiper's Nest will quickly feel like 'home'! The spacious living-dining-kitchen area is open to the views of the deck , beach, and ocean beyond. A large ocean front master suite has a king bed, computer, and private bath. Two additional bedrooms and baths provide privacy for everyone. The large deck, gas grill, beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas are just a few of the many amenities we offer in this luxurious ocean front setting. We have a gas fireplace for winter guests (Christmas through February) and a new fenced yard for dogs!
The living-dining-kitchen area is open to the views of the deck and the beautiful ocean beyond. Comfortable seating, a fireplace for our winter guests, large flat screen television and DVD player, Bose CD player, books, puzzles, and games will insure that our guests will remain entertained, even on our few rainy days! We have a high speed wireless Internet connection so bring your lap top and surf the net throughout the house and the deck. The pine dining table easily seats 6, and two comfy bar chairs at the end of the long kitchen counter offer additional dining space. The galley kitchen is lovely, with granite counters, side-by-side refrigerator with water and ice on the door, glass top electric range, oven, microwave, toaster and toaster oven, dishwasher, and all the other conveniences that make cooking a pleasure. We also have an extra refrigerator in the garage. The kitchen is situated in the heart of the living area, with no walls to obscure the views of the living and dining areas and the wonderful deck and ocean beyond.
The master suite is a peaceful retreat. Located on the ocean side of the house, it contains a king size bed with top quality bedding. The room has a private bath with large soaking tub, a TV/DVD player, and a desk for computing or other work. We also have a day bed in the master, which is perfect for lounging or for a toddler.
The junior master is on the front of the house and is equipped with a queen size bed, vaulted ceilings, TV/DVD, and a private bath.
The bunk room is a child's delight. The bed will sleep 3, thanks to the trundle underneath, and the mattresses are regular single mattresses so are comfortable for adults as well as children. This room also has a TV/DVD. A full bath is located in the hall adjacent to this room.
You will love the hurricane shutters we have just installed on all of the doors and windows! If you like to sleep in a DARK room, just push a button and there you are.
The deck is a destination in itself. Running the length of the house, the deck is bumped out in the middle, offering a 16 X 20 area for play and relaxing. Furnished with a round umbrella topped dining table and many comfortable chairs and loungers, the deck is a delightful spot to read, snooze, or dine. The deck railings have slats located close together so that small children are always safe, and a lockable gate insures that they will stay on the deck and off the dune walkover! At the end of the dune walkover is a very special built-in bench, which everyone loves for early morning coffee or late night moon watching! From there, it is a 10 step descent to the beach and the wonderful Atlantic ocean!
We have recently fenced in the yard on the south side of the house with gate access to the deck. This is a perfect place to let your dogs run free and take care of business without your having to walk around in the night!

About Judy Wren
Hi there! I am Judy Lombana Wren, owner (with my husband Bill) of Sandpiper's Nest, manager of several other oceanfront properties, retired university professor and mental health therapist, wife, mom, grandmother, and friend! Bill (a retired airline pilot) and I live in Jacksonville, Florida and Maggie Valley, NC. I have been involved with with the ocean, beaches, homes, decorating, and people all my life. Sandpiper's Nest is our very special oceanfront home in which we take great pride and enjoy sharing with others. We hope you will love it as much as our previous renters do!
I have been renting Sandpiper's Nest since I first bought it brand new in 1987. At the time, it was a two bedroom, two bath cottage on a fantastic oceanfront lot. Bill and I completely renovated the home in 1993, taking it to the studs, opening it more to the views and adding another bedroom and bath. It looks brand new because we are ALWAYS working on it...very important on the ocean! We bought two more oceanfront homes a few years later, and others starting asking me to manage their properties, so my rental 'hobby' quickly turned into a business. My son, David Lombana, has joined me in Wren Beach Rentals, and we now manage 10 luxury oceanfront homes in South Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beach. We take great pride in our solid relationships with both owners and renters, and we look forward to working with you!

Why Judy Wren chose Ponte Vedra Beach
I bought Sandpiper's Nest in South Ponte Vedra Beach, because it was less than a half hour drive from my regular home, making it the ideal weekend retreat. I started renting it immediately, to help with the mortgage payments, and found that my renters also found South Ponte Vedra to be a very special community. It is perfect for vacationers who want direct oceanfront, great views, and privacy. Sandpiper's Nest sits on a 90 foot wide lot, on top of a high dune, offering panoramic ocean views. The immediate area consists of single family homes, several great restaurants, a terrific beach club (available as an option to our renters who want a pool!)and miles of wide, sandy, car-free beaches. Our renters come here because they love the privacy and the fact that we are not surrounded by high rise condos, fast food restaurants, bars, hordes of people vying for space on the beach, or cars driving on the sand! However, we are not isolated! Sandpiper's Nest is just 10 minutes from historic St. Augustine and 15 minutes from posh Ponte Vedra. We think we have the perfect beach location!
