TURTLE'S NEST HOUSE, BEACH HOME, SWEEPING VIEWS, '3D' HDTV

Vilano Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The beach vacation of your dreams is waiting at Turtle’s Nest, our oceanfront house in Ponte Vedra! From the wraparound deck to the huge great room to the latest electronics and appliances, this house combines vintage charm with contemporary convenience.

Turtle’s Nest is an open, sun-filled, bright house right on the shores of the beach, with a big wraparound wooden deck (with both covered and exposed portions) that leads right down to the apricot-colored sands. There is plenty of room here to sunbathe, chat, birdwatch, or simply admire the spectacular view! And of course we have a grill for your use, plus casual seating for those al fresco meals that seem to taste so much better than even the best restaurant cuisine! You’ll fall in love with the deck, whether you spend your time out here updating your Facebook status (you have free WiFi at Turtle’s Nest), taking pictures, reading that novel you’ve been promising yourself, or having fun with your favorite people in the world.

Step inside and the only difference you’ll feel is the air conditioning, for our house is so bright and sunny that you seem to bring the outdoors in with you! You find yourself in a giant great room with a sloping ceiling and windows on 3 sides. Comfortable couches and chairs fill the space to accommodate the whole gang (and then some!). In one corner is our new 3D HDTV, with cable, DVD player, and all the trimmings. Flop down and make yourself at home! You’re going to love it here.

Off to one side of the great room, surrounded by windows with breathtaking views, is our long dining table. This is Command Central at Turtle’s Nest, and serves as the setting for group meetings, games and puzzles, and even computers when work must be done or reservations made! There’s no more enjoyable space to set up the Settlers of Catan board and play a tournament in between trips to the beach and sightseeing expeditions! And if you decide to prepare a home cooked meal, you can set this table to perfection using our collection of dishes, glasses, linens, and flatware. Light a few candles and you have the ideal romantic setting for anything from restaurant takeout to Thanksgiving dinner!

And speaking of cooking, the kitchen at Turtle’s Nest is a treat to use. Again, you don’t have to leave the ocean behind – it’s right outside the window over the sink in our big, light-filled kitchen! The wooden cabinets are filled with cookware and gadgets for any culinary challenge, and the full-sized appliances – a side-by-side with ice in the door; a flattop range – are sparkling new. It’s a foodie’s delight . . . but if your idea of a vacation is dining out, rely on the time-savers instead, such as the microwave, toaster oven, coffeepot, and dishwasher. You can’t go wrong in a place where you never have to hunt for a corkscrew or improvise a colander!

When it’s time for bed, Turtle’s Nest sleeps 10 comfortably in 3 bedrooms and a sleeper sofa in the great room. Whether you’re traveling with a big family, a second couple, or a group of friends, you’ll find the arrangements easy and conducive to a great night’s sleep for everybody!

The master suite is lovely, featuring a queen-size bed with swing lamps on each side for late-night reading and an HDTV. And the en-suite bath is a lovely touch of privacy during a busy vacation!

The second bedroom also contains a queen-sized bed, plus an HDTV, while the third is a kids’ paradise, with a set of bunkbeds and a single bed with trundle. There’s an HDTV in here too, not to mention plenty of bright sunshine! The second bathroom is convenient to both of these bedrooms – and includes all towels, as do the other bathrooms. Linens are provided for every bed, right down to the sleeper sofa. And we’ve got plenty of spare pillows and blankets, not to mention a washer/dryer to keep everything fresh, so pack light!

You’ll love our beachfront house, just seconds from the waves! Come discover the privacy and beauty of Ponte Vedra.

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!

Our stay in this property was quite enjoyable - overall we were very pleased. Great beachfront location with panaoramic view! It was furnished and equipped quite adequately, and we were comfortable during our stay. Our minor recommendations: fix the gate latch on the deck and update the dvd player -- it was difficult to get working reliably.

It was difficult to find in the dark when we arrived. It was difficult to open key lock in the dark. A light should have been left on. It was a condo NOT a house and it had many stairs. The coffee pot filter holder was crooked=didn't drip coffee thru well. Had to get neighbor help up set up the TV, later even when I put new batteries in it, didn't always work.Used jacuzzi once last night jets not conntrollable went all over the bathroom, took lenghthy time to fill 1/4 full, then couldn't drain water out.Liked the retaurant tips, Aunt Kate's and Caps close by THE BEST. Loved our view but water came in the master bedroom and the living room with the nor'eastern.Would recommend with fixing things as stated.

If you are a perfectionist, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a place to sleep after a great day at the beach, which is steps away, then this place is for you! For those that are picky, The place had some water stains on the ceilings, the<br/> fridge didn't keep stuff really cold and the washer and dryer are in need if an upgrade. Make sure you lay a towel down on the floor when using the &quot;captains quarters&quot; master bedroom bathtub/shower and the blinds to the balcony were old and a little tricky<br/> to use. Everyone else, the place is steps away from a very private beach, the views are amazing (especially from the private balcony)and the beds were really comfortable! The place was clean and the towels and linens were were clean and smelled great! This<br/> is a pet friendly rental and you can not tell that pets stayed in this unit, no smells or pet stains! Our dog was very relaxed in this home.Many games, dvd player and directv if you did have a rain day (which we did not)There is a Winn Dixie(groceries) approx<br/> 7 minutes away and Old Town St. Augustine is approx 2-3 miles (just over the bridge) Some excellent restaurants are within miles of the rental. Our favorite was Caps on the Water, excellent waterfront seating for sunset! When my family goes to the beach we<br/> are more concerned with the location as we spend the most amount of time on the beach not in the house, we were very satisfied with this rental property and would recommened this place to family and friends who are not looking for perfection and just looking<br/> for a great place to stay, great location, great views and a wonderful family vacation!!
