Absolutely gorgeous! Best value for 2-3

Step into this 4000 plus square foot eight year old home and you won't want to leave. It's everything you would want from a fabulous beach home with all the amenities and updates and a whole lot more! Six bedrooms and five baths for multiple families make this the best value on the beach! Let's start with the living areas ... three of them. The second level boasts an up-to-date kitchen, living room and dining room that seats eight ... all facing glorious ocean views off a spacious deck with some 10 wood deck chairs. This is where you will be living the good life. The third level features a living/game room with a foosball table, a second kitchenette and a spacious den with a large flat screen TV, again, facing the beach with a second deck. The first floor includes a game area with a TV, DVD, Playstation 2 and even a sofa bed as well.

All this ... with high speed internet connection, gas grill, all the beach toys and chairs you need and your own private catwalk out to the beach. Plus, check out the crows nest high above the house for 360 degree views for miles. And, because we are members, your group can have access to The Serenata Beach Club two miles south for only $230 for the week ... two pools, fitness center, bar and restaurant(10 people, excluding kids 6 and under). First class all the way.

Now, the bedrooms ... beautiful, private Master Bedroom Suite on second (main) level with queen, TV and whirlpool tub/shower...all just a turn of the head to the morning sunrise. Second MBS on third level with queen, TV and private bath with tub/shower. One additional bedroom has twins. Two bedrooms have bunk beds with a twin over a double. And the final bedroom has a queen. Add a couple airbeds for the kids or use the sofa bed and the home can sleep 14.

Your Retreat is ready for you. 15 minutes from downtown St. Augustine and 15 minutes from Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra. See you soon!

Wonderful Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three children and their spouses and seven grand children rented this house to spend family time together and celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. Since we come from Virginia, California, NYC, and Florida getting all of us together is tricky and expensive. The house fit our needs perfectly and was reasonably priced. With three large floors the two families with 3 and 4 children each had a floor with plenty of room to sleep, dress, and have private space. The childless couple and my husband and I shared the top floor. With five bathrooms in the house there was never a problem waiting for one. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishes, and gadgets, and the table was big enough to seat 8 people easily. The two balconies and small roof top deck gave wonderful views of the ocean and surrounding area. Stairs led straight to the sand and surf, and we could always see everyone on the beach. We had brought two boogie boards with us but there were several in the garage. There were plenty for everyone who could use them. The listing description was accurate. The house was clean and cool when we arrived and well maintained. Homes on the beach take a beating from the salt air regardless of how well they are maintained. Our oldest son finally got the grill to work after cleaning some of the corrosion out of the line. The wifi router was affected on our last day but that was not a problem as most of us had iPhones. Our NYC son was able to work periodically from his computer all week. We knew we could call the management and get a quick fix but simply did not need to do so. Yes, the place could use a couple more sharp knives in the kitchen, but overall that did not keep us from giving this home a five star rating. Location was fantastic...about 7 miles down the beach road to the Publix grocery store in Vilano Beach. We did two days in St. Augustine...Alligator Farm which is interesting to children and adults alike. We also did the Black Raven Pirate Ship with all seven kids...the two babies hung in there while the 3 to 9 year olds battled pirates, got face paintings, and rescued a treasure chest...expensive but well worth it. We would absolutely recommend this home to friends and would love to come back one day ourselves.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time I have ever rented a house before; therefor, I was nervous and full of questions . The owners were so very nice emailed me back timely and even talked to me on the phone answering all my questions . The owners were amazing with customer service. I checked in on a Thursday and left that following Tuesday . It was my birthday weekend with my friends and family ! The house was amazing !! It had three huge levels, two kitchens and two living rooms and it was spotless clean !!! My friends and I were in ahh! Not to mention the two balconies with gorgeous views plus the stunning terrace that gave you views no one can even describe ! There were plenty of towels and they even had a ton of beach chairs, rafts, volleyball net, a grill and toys for kids to play with on the beach! The bathrooms were amazing and included a jetted soaker tub ! I could not have asked for a better house to have my birthday vacation! This house had everything you would need for a beach vacation and all you have to bring is yourself , a bathing suit, food and bath supplies ! If you have a group looking to relax and enjoy the beach I would defiantly recommend ! Plus it's close to fabulous restaurants and only about 15 minutes away from the night life at St. Augustine ! It's about ten minutes away from caps restaurant and the beach restaurant , which our to die for! The food is amazing and the scenery is even better! If you like to go out at night , which we did the bars are about 15 -20 minutes away and cabs are cheap and the drivers were nothing but nice!! I would recommend for bars the no name bar and trade winds. However there are just to many to name so those are my top 2 choices! Overall I give it a ten and I will defiantly be booking with these owners again for hopefully years to come !!

Awesome home right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures provided on this website do not do this house justice. Due to a family event, we needed 6 bedrooms for 6 adults and this was the perfect solution. From the moment we walked in to the entry way and saw the sea turtles on the wall, I knew this was the right choice, my good omen. As we progressed up the first set of stairs, we were blown away by the size of the living area and kitchen. Both included plenty of seating. The kitchen has everything you might need, neatly labeled. Then we stepped outside, again, just blown away by the view and all the comfy adirondack chairs lining the deck. Up to the 3rd floor, and another large living area with a large screen tv. But we never hung out up there, never even turned on the tv. Not with that view outside, even though it was February and chilly. But those of you with children, this room will be a hit. Five bedrooms had at least a double bed, some with bunks. Downstairs had a room with 2 twins. All 6 adults found the beds very comfortable. I am sure the sound of crashing waves coming through the walls helped all of us sleep as well. The home was clean and well maintained. . The first floor bedrooms have the added advantage of a separate door at the entry level. Those bedrooms were the quiet rooms for the light or late sleepers. We did have a few issues specific to our group, and Jenny and Rick had all the right solutions, going above and beyond. Our group enjoyed a dinner at The Reef, a not to be missed lunch at Barbara Jean's and walking the beach every day. I would gladly recommend this to friends and family, actually already have. Need to get away and lots of space and bedrooms? This is it.

The house worked out perfectly for our family.

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for a family reunion/Thanksgiving holiday. With three floors it worked out so well for the various family members. The top floor with the partial kitchen, large TV and beautiful views was just right for the family with children - lots of room to play and spread out toys. The views from the beach side of the house were spectacular. There were several runners in our group and the preserve across the road provided some of the sweetest trails we have ever seen-so many different habitats, rivers, inlets - it was wonderful. The house was clean and well stocked. The owners were very accessible and did their best to make sure we had a good visit - which we did.

Good, not Great

  • 4 of 5
I rent often through VRBO and the conditions of this home were just "adequate". At $600. per night I felt the home was OK, certainly not outstanding. The disjointed layout makes it sensible for 2-3 families with each one occupying a different floor. The home makings (tableware, towels, seating, etc) were average at best and not commensurate with the up-scale image of a beach front "ocean retreat". That being said, it was nice to have the beach chairs to use and the walkway with showers to the beach were a very nice touch. Overall, it was a good place for our golf group but not in line with expectations for the price paid during October.

Owner's Response: We do appreciate this guests comments as we always value our guests feedback to help us do a better job. They were there for a 3 night off season stay. It was $500 a night, not $600 plus the tax and cleaning. We believe the home is more than "adequate" ... actually outstanding in every way, including the way it is equipped. Our other reviews and guests comments are evidence of that. There are 3 floors with two bedrooms on each floor. The large dining room seats 8 or more people. There are plenty of towels and kitchen items at the home but had they contacted us while they were there (which we always encourage our guests to do) we would have addressed those issues, like we do for all our guests at all of our homes. For all of our homes, we take great pride in providing our guests with comfortable, clean and well equipped homes. Jenny and Rick

The Perfect Family Wedding & Vacation

The Perfect Family Wedding & Vacation
  • 5 of 5
I chose this vacation rental for my private wedding and mini family vacation. We had our private ceremony behind the house on the beach which was essentially our private beach, it was amazing. The house was perfect for my family, all of the bedrooms have views of the beach and water. The home slept all 12 of us with space to spare I counted 1 spare bed plus two spare pull out couches. There are two separate living spaces for people to spread out and relax they even provided several board games for the family to play. Jenny and Rick were great to work with, they always answered any question or concern promptly. They even followed up after we left to make sure we had a good time and sincerely wanted to know if we had any issues so they could address them before the next visitors arrived. I would definitely recommend this property or any property they manage to anyone and look forward to renting again.
