About Judy Wren

Hi there! I am Judy Lombana Wren, owner (with my husband Bill) of WaterColors, 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. WaterColors is our beautiful and spacious oceanfront home where we have large family gatherings and enjoy sharing with others. We hope you will love it too!

We bought WaterColors in 1995. At the time, it was a large, somewhat bland home which had some wonderful attributes: an elevator, fantastic ocean views, spacious living area on the main level, plus a game room complete with pool table on the lower floor. Bill and I have signficantly remodeled and updated the house. We ripped out the kitchen and opened it to the living area; you will love the beautiful cabinets and huge granite island. We have expanded the deck, updated two of the three bathrooms, and painted the house inside and out in happy beach colors. We just installed a huge flat screen TV in the living room (look for an article about us in a Best Buy catalog this summer!) For a number of years now, I have been managing other oceanfront homes, as well as my own. My son, David Lombana, has joined me in Wren Beach Rentals, and we now manage 14+ luxury oceanfront properties in South Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beach. We have a huge number of repeat renters and enjoy solid relationships with both owners and renters. We look forward to working with you!

Judy Wren purchased this house in 1994

Why Judy Wren chose Ponte Vedra Beach

We bought WaterColors in South Ponte Vedra Beach, because we knew it was a great investment. Our sucess with renting our first home, Sandpiper's Nest, convinced us that larger groups are also looking for top quality getaways on a very private beach. WaterColors is perfect for vacationers who want direct oceanfront, great views, spacious living quarters, qualaity furnishings, lots of amenities, and privacy. WaterColors is perched on a high dune, on a 100 wide lot, 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! WaterColors is just 10 minutes from historic St. Augustine and 15 minutes from posh Ponte Vedra. We think we have the perfect beach location!

This was a beautiful home! It had every thing to make our stay perfect. The beach location was amazing. We are looking forward to staying in this home again! In fact, I'd love to go back right now! Make sure you go into St. Augustine and eat at Harry's. Great food, great service.

The perfect place for a large family

  • 5 of 5
I have 4 children plus their partners/spouses and Watercolors accommodated us beautifully. There were lots of places to play games, socialize and eat. A very attractive house and very functional! We loved the deck and beach as well! Judy was great to deal with and I highly recommend this house to anyone that wishes for a lovely place to stay on a fantastic beach!

WaterColors, all we dreamed plus!

  • 5 of 5
Our week at Watercolors was all we dreamed it would be plus so much more. The location is ideal, the layout of the various rooms flows perfectly for a large family like ours...six adults and six children (including a new baby). Judy and Bill have thought of every need we had...from all the various kitchen utensils to even a plastic baby tub! We loved the wonderful uncrowded beach, and it is worth every cent to join the Serenata Club.
Judy and Bill are so helpful and accommodating, and we highly recommend this property to anyone.
We usually go to a different spot every year for our family vacation,but we all agreed that WaterColors can not be improved upon. If our schedules all work out, we will be back next year!

Paradise Living!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the best vacation ever at Watercolors! The house was supreme luxury with every amenity that one could ever want. It was clean and well stocked of all necessary items. The house had beach chairs, umbrellas, surf boards and all sorts of toys. The gas grill was wonderful to cook steaks, hamburgers and hot dogs. We loved that each level had its own entrance and privacy. It was also convenient to restaurants and the Publix! Exploring St. Augustine was an added treat. One big hit was that Eric came and surf fished with the grand boys! I even caught my first fish. It will be a vacation that our family will long remember and hope to duplicate again!

Owner's Response: We are very happy that these guests enjoyed the luxury and amenities of WaterColors and we agree that when you are on vacation, you deserve to stay in the nicest place you can afford. ERIC, by the way, is a local charter fisherman. We offer discount coupons to our renters for nearby restaurants and attractions, including Eric's company.

2nd visit, just as good as the 1st

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd time at this house and we had a great time. The new bathroom and removing the pool table really made the lower level great for the kids. We had a 12 month old, 3, 4, & 6 yr old along with 5 adults and the house was great. Lots of beach toys for the kids which was great. Dealing with the owners has been great both times and I would definitely recommend this house to any family or group. The finishes of this house are also very nice and we felt like if there was something we needed, the house had it. It had 2 cribs, baby monitors, and a booster seat as well. Only negatives I can think of would be the beach has had some erosion since our last visit 2 yrs ago and you do get some highway impact which every house in that area has. Overall though both times we've rented this house it was great and we all would stay at this place again.

We had my nana's 100th bday party at the house and had food catered in from "A Step Above Catering Company" who were also very good to deal with and had very good food that was reasonably priced.

We also did the dolphin discovery one day with our 4 yr old and we loved it. We just did the feed and touch and would do it again. Very cool experience.

Area: WaterColors is conveniently located between the golf mecca of Ponte Vedra Beach, 15 miles north, and historic St. Augustine, 6 miles south. It is situated on a barrier island with mostly single-family homes, although several excellent restaurants and convenience stores are located within a mile or so. It is an easy drive to either St. Augustine or Ponte Vedra for excellent dining, shopping, activities, and golf.

Golf: We have many public and semi public golf courses within a few minutes drive of the house. The World Golf Village with the King and Bear and the Squire and Slammer is just 15 minutes away. Check out the Royal St. Augustine, a budget friendly course with definite challenges. Play the St. Johns Country Club, South Hampton, or Cimmarone, all located near each other.
