|Minimum Stay||6 - 7 nights|
Perched right on the dunes of Ponte Vedra Beach, our 2-storey Ashley Beach House is ideally located for your next vacation. Enjoy the view of sea, sand, and sky from our second-storey sundeck, first-floor patio, and 2 master suites each with HDTVs and Blue Ray/DVD players.<br/><br/>Sweeping vistas are yours to behold at Ashley Beach House. The living room is spacious and yet homey, with bright red and blue accents, a big new HDTV with Blue Ray/DVD player, luxurious couches and 2 new leather recliner chairs, and a wall of windows that leads out to the second-storey deck and offers a nice view of the ocean. You'll find yourself gravitating to this room at all hours of the day with a good beach read or a glass of something frosty. It's cozy and friendly!<br/><br/>From the living room, of course you must slip out onto the second-storey deck, complete with safety rail and sturdy wooden lounge chairs. This deck runs the length of the house, and is your window on the world, overlooking the dunes, your private beach boardwalk (which departs from the first floor, a quick set of steps away!), the coquina-shell sands of Ponte Vedra Beach, the sparkling waves, and the horizon. If you can wake up early one morning, come out here and witness the dawn breaking over the sea -- there's nothing like it! And watch the sea and shore birds soaring past at all hours. Our beach is long, beautiful, and uncrowded; you will love watching the tides here!<br/><br/>Of course, you can see (and hear) the ocean very well from the kitchen and dining room too. Both of these areas offer big windows with breathtaking views. You'll love how modern and spotlessly clean everything is, from the formal table for 6 in the dining area to the informal breakfast bar (a great place to set up your laptop -- you do have free WiFi here at Ashley Beach House!) in the kitchen. One of our favorite spots is the window over the kitchen sink, because even if you're stuck loading the dishwasher, you can glimpse the beauty all around here!<br/><br/>By the way, our kitchen is stocked with everything but food: we've laid in all the cookware, dishes, utensils, and gadgets you need to prepare and serve anything. The side-by-side fridge has ice and water in the door, the freestanding island offers a nice second worktop, and the cabinetry is custom. Of course, you may just find yourself eating out in the terrific local restaurants during this vacation, in which case you'll appreciate the microwave and coffeemaker most of all! But whether you spend 2 fleeting minutes or 2 hours a day in the kitchen, you'll enjoy how well-appointed and pleasant it is. <br/><br/>Also on the second storey is a half-bath, convenient to all the rooms. The bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms are all downstairs, which is very useful for maintaining quiet when the small children go to bed early and the big ones are still loud and active!<br/><br/>Ashley Beach House has not one but 2 master suites -- perfect for 2 families traveling together! (Why should just one couple get an en-suite bath and beachfront view?!) Each suite has a king-sized bed, TV, and big window. One bathroom contains a walk-in shower, while the other has both a shower and tub option. Both are newly renovated. And the third bedroom, with a comfy queen-sized bed and TV, has a full bath just outside its door, off the foyer leading to the big covered patio and down to the beach. <br/><br/>Just as the kitchen is fully supplied, the beds and baths at Ashley Beach House all have fresh linens, blankets, pillows, and towel sets waiting for you. Our laundry room is yours to use, so feel free to pack light. It's so nice not to have to worry about bringing extras when you're on holiday! And, there is a brand new charcoal grill and deck chairs.<br/><br/>Note: Garage use is not available. Garage is used by owner for his personal items.<br/><br/>You are also a short drive from the Seranata Beach Club, a private club offering dining, fitness and spa, swimming pools and cocktails, indoors or at the pool bar. Arrangements can be made for temporary membership. (Please contact us.)
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.
It was the easiest rental I have experienced. I vaca in Fla yearly and this was the easiest "check-in" ever.I drove to the entrance gate,gave the guard my name and rental # and I was checked in! Marvelous. Previous rentals required driving to the rental office, waiting in line, signing papers, getting the key and then driving to the rental...I applaud the check in experience...
We had a late arrival to the unit (11pm) due to a flight time change. When we arrived at the condo Sat night, all the lights in the unit were on, all the TV's were on full volume, and the door was cracked open an inch. Traveling with my mother in law, wife and 2 small children, I was not about to check this out on my own, nor did I want to be blamed if something in the unit was stolen. Took about 45 mins to get the property manager to check it out and his explaination was that the cleaning crew didn't turn the stuff off, nor did they lock the door. Everything inside was fine, (except the master shower was dirty, which they cleaned the next day) and they did change the lock code and added an extra internal lock so we would feel safe. Besides that, the rest of the stay was great!
Unit was very nice except for finding dirty sheets on the bed in the master bedroom. Had a problem with internet access - but the problem was solved by management. Land line phone for the unit was not hooked up - management solved that issue. There were only two washcloths in the unit for 8 people. Management did deliver more. The unit was nicely decorated - overall we enjoyed our stay.
Great place to stay. Clean, friendly and good location.
We were pleasantly surprised! We made reservations only about one week prior to our stay and did not have a lot of information on the area, therefore did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised! The unit we stayed in was very nice. We were ocean front and watched a beautiful sunrise each morning and even saw dolphins one of the mornings. Having access to pools as well as the beach was great. The facility was very clean and well kept. We would definately like to return for another stay. Thank you!
I plan to tell everyone i know about this beautiful place. Wish there where more places this nice to be able to take our little Yorkie with us. She loved it, It was her first visit to the beach. she loved the balcony watching the people and waves and getting to walk on the beach. We took our daughters, Son-in-law and grandson. We had a wonderful stay. Hope to be back next yr.
