NAPPING TURTLE, 3 BEDROOMS, OCEAN FRONT, SOUTH PONTE VEDRA BEACH

Vilano Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 9, 2 Bathrooms

Nestled on the beautiful shores of South Ponte Vedra Beach is our big yellow house, Napping Turtle. With large windows, 2 levels of beachfront decks, and all the latest amenities, it's the perfect spot for your most relaxing and enjoyable vacation ever!

At Napping Turtle, nothing stands between you and the blue Atlantic but soft sands and gorgeous natural dunes. Wake to the sounds of sea birds fishing for their breakfast in the surf, and drift off to sleep to the murmur of the waves. The sunrise seems to happen right outside your window here, and marine life from dolphins to manatees can be spotted swimming past. It's a little piece of paradise between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, ideal for a beach vacation but also great for golf, sightseeing, shopping, and fine dining. There's something for everyone on our little strip of the coast!

The family room on the ground offers breathtaking ocean views, soaring ceilings, direct access to the deck, a stone fireplace, and an HDTV -- not to mention ultra-comfortable couches! The cool tiled floor here feels so good when you come in barefoot from the beach, and the ceiling fan adds a fresh breeze to the air-conditioned comfort. Ah, this is the way to relax!

The dining area is adjacent to the living room, right beside French doors leading out to the deck. Indoors or out, it's a great way to start the day: a cup of coffee, a book or your phone (you have free wireless Internet at Napping Turtle, so you can keep your Facebook status updated!), and the vast horizon in front of you, full of possibilities!

The kitchen offers terrific ocean views too, not to mention state-of-the-art stainless-steel appliances, smooth countertops, and a breakfast bar set with high stools. You're just steps from the oceanfront balcony here, so throw open the French doors as you cook and enjoy the salty breeze!

You'll find the kitchen stocked with all the cookware, utensils, and dishes you could ask for -- your only contribution is groceries! No emergency trips to the store to pick up plastic cups or a can-opener; everything is waiting for you here.

When it's time to retire for the night, everyone will be pleased with their bedroom. Napping Turtle has 3 bedrooms plus a bonus room containing a single bed with a trundle, so there's plenty of space to sleep 10. This arrangement is perfect for 2 families traveling together, or a big group of friends.

The master bedroom overlooks the ocean, with a luxurious queen-sized bed and a TV, plus an en-suite bath with both shower and tub option. A set of French doors leads out onto the balcony, opening the entire room to the glorious outdoors. You're going to love it here!

The second bedroom also contains a queen-sized bed, while the third has 2 queens. This third bedroom is a great place for the kids to all club in together, with their own TV and balcony access. Give the room over to blanket tunnels and pillow thrones, and the children will love being indoors almost as much as they do the beach!

A second bathroom is convenient to the other bedrooms, and a laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer keeps all those swimsuits and beach towels fresh. We provide all the linens and towels you need for every bed and bath at Napping Turtle, along with plenty of pillows and blankets. Come as you are and prepare to have the time of your life!

A boardwalk leads directly from Napping Turtle over the dunes and onto the warm sands of South Ponte Vedra Beach. You'll feel as though you're on our own private beach as you stroll the sands. This is a great beach for anything from boogie-boarding to sandcastle-building to bocce-ball playing, and the whole group will enjoy it.

Come stay at Napping Turtle very soon. You will love the location, the house, and the beautiful surroundings. Discover beachfront living the laid-back way in South Ponte Vedra Beach!

My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now I am managing other people's properties in St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 500+ vacation rentals. We booked over 10,000 rentals and received over 3,000 guest reviews in 2011. You can find some of these by going to search engines and typing in Steve Milo or 'Vacation Rental Pros' . Thank you!

And the best part of it all is the location. You're within a short car ride of historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in America filled with pedestrian walkways with shops, cafes and first class restaurants. We are also close to Daytona Beach and the Daytona speedway and museum. We are also only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Orlando and Disney World/Universal/Sea World as well as 1 1/2 hour to the Kennedy Space Center. Our rental is also a short car ride to Ponte Vedra Beach and PGA golf Course and TPC as well as Jacksonville with the brand new St John's Town Center (with a Costco), Avenue Mall and River Front Arcade. There is also a minor league baseball team and a professional football team and stadium.

The beach is wide and unspoiled here by large crowds. Kids will spend hours exploring, and their parents and grandparents will love discovering new areas to relax and reconnect If you're ready for uncrowded beaches, balmy weather, clear skies, and Florida's natural wildlife, come visit us today!

DIDN'T WORK FOR US

This was a last minute rental after our original rental, booked in February, cancelled 3 weeks prior to coming into St. Augustine. That being said, Napping Turtle definitely had some problems. The A/C is probably original to the house and was rusted through. We kept the t-stat on 72 and it never got below 77 until sometime in the middle of the night. In the description on vrbo.com, it states there is a stone fireplace and HDTV. Yes to both, however, the fireplace is covered by one of the couches and the HDTV has no HD service on it. The "french doors that lead out to the deck" are so hard to open and shut, we tried to avoid using them for fear of breaking them since the door jambs are falling apart. The "state of the art stainless appliances" consisted of a black/stainless fridge. The stove is black and chrome and OLD. The dishwasher is original to the house, black and OLDER. I truly don't know how it kept going. The "bonus room with a trundle bed" is a total lie. There is a twin bed, no trundle, on the stair landing. No doors, no walls. That's the "bonus" room. The upstairs bedroom is actually the master since it has an en suite bathroom but it not advertised as such. One of the lower bedrooms is advertised as the master because it has french doors to the deck but there is not an attached bathroom. The two downstairs bedrooms share the bathroom in the hallway. The upstairs bathroom, well, words cannot accurately describe it. Disgusting comes to mind. I highly doubt the mirrored wall in the shower has EVER been cleaned. Ever. It's bad. The only good about this house is the view. It's what you're paying for. And it's gorgeous. If you don't mind old, outdated, not very clean, and million dollar views then this is the house for you. I will say that the deck is nice. Outside furniture is adequate. Nothing super nice. But adequate. However, considering the fees that Vacation Rental Pros charges for their rentals, one would expect a higher level of home. This being a last minute rental, I am grateful it was available but renter beware, VRP has exorbitant fees and don't think you are getting a modern, state of the art home for those fees because you are not. At least the VRP reps are nice to work with. No problems there.

202 BAREFOOT TRACE

  • 4 of 5
We loved the location and the overall appearance of the unit. The furnishings and amount and variety of sleeping arrangements were great. I would say that although the age of the unit lends to older cabinets and such, which I don't mind, the unit needs some deep cleaning in the nooks and crannies. Maybe steam clean the nooks in the floor of the kitchen and wipe out the cabinets and drawers. The bathrooms were very clean, a must for me. Also, several broken chairs and bikes on the back porch made it not so cozy. Needs a few more items, baking sheets would be nice. We left some items, cooking spray, sweetner, sugar etc, but it was nice to already have some spices and such. The stove went out, bad element, but was repaired very promptly the next morning. Would use VacationRentalPros again and do plan to visit the Saint Augustine area again in the near future.

PERTURBED

  • 3 of 5
The problem I had with this property was no one check out the units before they were given to us to make sure everything was working properly.The first had a water valve change just before we got there and wasn't install properly so the water valve leak into the downstairs so we couldn't used that bathroom so we had to be move.The other unit had a bad dryer which made a terrible noise every you had to use it and didn't get fixed until the day before we left so we to listen to it for several days. The unit was to have wifi but it with out so I had to go outside or in the club house to use wifi which wasn't mine ideal of relaxing .
