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

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!

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.

Awesome, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
We have been going to Ponte Vedra for many years, and this is the most gorgeous house we have ever stayed in. It is elegant and spacious. The house is equipped with every necessity you could think of, and the little extra perks are very nice. We especially liked the ice chest cooler on the deck in the evenings. A great restaurant, Aunt Kate's, is just down the street. It has a relaxing atmosphere and great food! We loved this house and if you are looking for privacy and a "NON- Touristy" area, this is it! Love it!

Owner's Response: I really appreciated the fact that these nice renters noted our area as "non-touristy", which it IS, in spite of being just 5 miles from down town St. Augustine and 10 miles from golf-mecca Ponte Vedra. You may have the beach to yourself and it will never be crowded, yet we have several excellent restaurants within a couple of miles and of course have easy access to all the activities and attractions of St. Augustine. WaterColors is a luxurious home and many of our renters are so happy with the decor, amenities, and the beach that they don't wander far. You will love it.

Water colors...what a wonderful time!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a family reunion here over New Years. What a fantastic place to start the year! The house provided a great setting and helped with our needs for family members ranging from age 1 to age 90. Plenty of space and easy walks on the beach, fishing, sandcastles, family dinners. We have 2 family members with mobility restrictions, the elevator made for easy participation for all. We had an issue with the toaster and Judy was there the next day with a new one. I hear some renovations are going on now to upgrade the accesibility even more which will be appreciated by many people who could enjoy this beautful setting. The communication was true and timely. Great place.

Owner's Response: We are happy that these nice people enjoyed WaterColors and are glad that the house works for people of all ages and circumstances. The elevator is wonderful for people with mobility issues, as well as for transporting luggage and groceries to the main (upper) level. We are currently in the process of adding other amenities, which will enhance the rental experience. We are adding a 4th bath which will have a roll-in shower; this will help persons in wheelchairs or walkers. We are fencing part of the yard for the convenience of renters with dogs, and we are transforming the game room to be more suited to the needs of children and teens. Photos will be posted soon.
