South Ponte Vedra Beach House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 3 Bathrooms
A gold-medal property, with sunrises to remember for a lifetime. Turtle Cove Beach House offers private, direct beach access with your own staircase straight from the deck. A short walk or a moment’s drive to the charming surfer town of Vilano, this beach house is in a quiet neighborhood and has everything going for it.
Better than ever after a recent remodel, Turtle Cove is an 8-person beach house that suits all sorts of groups. Kids will love the beach frontage, but an adult group will find that it’s perfectly spacious even if your spend your vacation relaxing indoors. If coming in the summer, you could easily spend every minute on your backyard beach and the deck. In the winter, a fireplace makes it a cozy retreat as you enjoy ocean views from the comfy sectional.
At Turtle Cove, everyone gets their own bedroom! Two master bedrooms have king beds, and two bedrooms have queens but – shh – only one of these rooms has direct deck access. The bedrooms are divided amongst the home’s two floors, two upstairs and two down, so you have lots of privacy and an added sense of space. In addition to comfy beds, all bedrooms have generous floor space (bring your yoga mat!), and great storage really suited for a beach vacation. Large windows front and back provide incredible natural light from dawn to dusk.
As for living space, it all centers on the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. An absolutely enormous leather sectional faces the deck and, beyond that, the Atlantic Ocean. The décor is clean and comfortable but never fussy; nothing competes with those ocean views. If not the couch, then activity will circle around the large kitchen island with stools conveniently next to the fridge and wine rack. Soft pendant lighting turns up the charm just as the sun goes down and you consider your dinner plans. Once it’s dark your focus might shift to either the screened fireplace, or the new, flatscreen HDTV is available, as is free Wi-Fi if you prefer to use your laptop.
Turtle Cove will feel like your own home right away, when you pull into the large driveway and race around to the deck and backyard. Nothing is more exciting on arrival than realizing just how sweet this location really is – can you keep it a secret until then? Fall in love with a property that will be perfect to return to for every summer vacation, as well as the quiet beauty of the cooler winter months and holiday period.
Of course, the one downside of beach-front living is keeping track of your towels. If three swims a day sounds about right, you’ll really appreciate the full-size laundry plus handy shelves for keeping everything in its place.
Very likely, you’ll spend all the time you have sitting on the deck, contemplating your tan. You might consider bringing binoculars to watch for dolphins or, at certain times of year, migrating right whales. Sea turtles and a great variety of birdlife call the area home as well.
Vilano Beach is a fantastic little community, with a real love for life on the water (whether on the ocean itself or the adjacent intracoastal waterway). Unpack and unwind into Vilano life as you get to know the area with a little more beach exploration each day.
