‘She sells seashells’ and total, utter beachfront privacy. Zoom into Seashell on Google Maps and the location gets better and better. It’s directly on the beach, halfway between TPC Sawgrass and the historic charm of St. Augustine. You arrive at Seashell’s front door straight off the stunning Scenic A1A. It’s then you realize you’ve got the Atlantic Ocean all to yourself.<br/><br/>Be our guest! Brand new to the rental market following a gorgeous renovation, Seashell is ready to impress its very first visitors. A beach house with every modern convenience, yet packed with cottage charm, you’ll enjoy HDTV and free WiFi while recalling Ponte Vedra’s early days of the twenties and thirties. Neutral décor leaves the home’s main features to steal the show: its high beamed ceiling, white-washed walls and wide ocean views. This is the classic family beach bungalow people dream of inheriting.<br/><br/>Seashell is an ideal spot for bird-watchers and anyone with an appreciation for nature. Spend time with your binoculars spotting all manner of shore birds, and perhaps sea turtles, dolphins and migrating Right whales. For a more tactile approach, enjoy hours of shell-hunting right outside the back door. <br/><br/>The master bedroom has its own ocean views, allowing you to sneak peeks of the sunrise without an ounce of effort. The pair of single beds in bedroom two are equally idyllic after a tiring day of fresh sea air. A third bedroom with double bed means there’s space at Seashell for up to six guests. This single-story home will especially suit guests with mobility concerns or families with children they need to keep an eye on.<br/><br/>A brand new kitchen gleams with sweet stainless steel, including a French door fridge and deep, under-mount sink. The island breakfast bar, topped with granite counters that match the warm colors of the sand outside, is a perfect place to plan your day – will you head north or south on the A1A? <br/><br/>As for ‘the little things’, a stacked washer-dryer makes beach living clean and convenient. There’s an outdoor shower to keep sand separate from your time on the couch.<br/><br/>Between bed and the beach, a screened back porch is ideal for cuddling up to enjoy coffee as the sun rises. When ready to boogie board it’s just a barefoot race through your own backyard on to Ponte Vedra beach itself.<br/><br/>If you love a new take on classic beach memories, be the very first to try life at Seashell.
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 and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, 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 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
You can not beat the location, it was like having our own private beach. We loved the patio/screened porch and yard area, but especially the access to the beach. Very nicely done on the inside with plenty of seating for 5 people, even if he house itself is small. I would highly recommend a queen bed, even if you lose a little floor space, with a new mattress, in the bedroom to the left. Also, spend the extra money and increase the channel lineup on the TV. Thank goodness it is a Smart tv with Netflix. The screened porch is wonderful. Make sure the front outside lighting works and I would mark the entrance to the house better, it's difficult to find at night. Overall we had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our visits to St. Augustine. Housekeeping provided good customer service, although I did not receive a response from maintenance.
We spent our spring break at the home in March 2015 and it was fantastic. The home was updated but held its original charm. The kitchen was great for cooking and easy to clean. We enjoyed the outdoor porch and patio. We spent alot of time on the beach walk benches enjoying the ocean. The kids found shells and starfish on the beach. The furniture was comfortable and cozy. We would come back anytime. Very nice.
Really enjoyed my time in your lovely home. I could tell great care was taken in furnishing and preparing this home for rental. The location cannot be beat. I really liked the fact that it had a nice yard in back, in addition to the beach of course! Would love to head back sometime in the future. Only comment would be to update the mattresses...while they were fine, I would have liked a newer, firmer one.
This was a first time experience at a "real" get- away. Being always too busy to pick up and go, especially with a business, college kids, dogs, and our own pool to care for. We had wanted to go in July, but we dragged our feet and everything quickly got booked. We were ready to give up when we came across this suprise! We couldn't have planned this on purpose it was great.!! If you want closeness to the beach, a cute clean bungalow,then you need not look anymore. I didn't like the beach till this trip! Great location great fun we will do it again and again !
From the screened porch facing the ocean, to the complete & modern kitchen, to the vaulted beam living room, this home has everything you need. Someone spent a ton of money and a lot of thought to make this an ideal place for a family to spend a relaxed, trouble free vacation.
