THE ULTIMATE BEACHFRONT ADVENTURE; AMENITIES-VALUE-5 STAR FUN!

South Ponte Vedra Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

DON'T JUST VACATION. VACATION WELL.

Welcome to Heaven By The Sea, where “Your Beachfront Adventure Awaits You”. Dreamy days and balmy nights will entrance your mind and captivate your soul…Richly enjoy each moment in your very own tropical oasis.

ONLY A FEW SHORT STEPS TO THE SAND AND SURF

Our property is situated in a private, quiet area. Public beach access is located one mile to the north and one mile to the south of our home. Because of this, there are very few people on the beach in the vicinity. Swim, surf, kayak or fish right from the backyard.

VIEW OUR GUEST COMMENTS

Our guests share their experiences with our home’s features, amenities and accommodations. Many “seasoned” vacation renters have commented that their stay here was their best one.

THE PERFECT BEACH HOUSE WITH ALL THE “BELLS AND WHISTLES”

Four (4) exterior decks offer generous outdoor living space and a myriad of options for outdoor entertaining. Multiple High Definition (HD) televisions, DVD players, and a Digital Video Recorder, finish out this seaside vacation home. Of course, no beach home would be complete without beach chairs, beach towels and beach umbrellas (all included and provided at our location).

FUN, FUN, AND MORE FUN

Enjoy ocean kayaking in one of two (2) provided kayaks. Take a ride on one of our many boogie boards. Don't worry about finding the perfect sized board; we provide multiple boards in assorted sizes! If you like, you can lounge and relax in our oversized outdoor beach hammock or grill a culinary masterpiece on the stainless steel barbeque grill.

KID FRIENDLY

There are two (2) bunk beds, two (2) separate twin sized beds and one (1) full sized bed (downstairs). We provide boogie boards, kayaks (2), lifejackets (4), sand toys, recorded Disney movies (on the DVR), and a video game system. All upstairs decks can be completely “enclosed” for small children and pets.

FOCUSED CUSTOMER SERVICE

Work together with the actual owner of the house. If desired, you will be greeted in person upon check in. 24 hour access to the owner (personal cell phone number) during your stay. Quality Control Program ensures that everything is perfect for your arrival.

EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN AND LAYOUT

One of the larger beachfront properties in the area. A unique 4 bedroom and 2 bathroom home offers nearly 1800 square feet of indoor living space. Tropical designer furnishings, artwork and accessories complete this coastal retreat. Two ocean front master suites lie on opposite ends of the home, creating their own private wing and offering exceptional options for multiple couples or families.

A PREMIER LOCATION

Downtown Saint Augustine (a popular tourist destination) is located approximately seven (7) miles to the south; far away enough from the tourist activity, but close enough for a short drive to enjoy the sites if you desired.

TREAT YOURSELF, YOU DESERVE IT

The perfect setting to celebrate an anniversary, family reunion, holiday vacation, or any other special occasion. Created to provide every comfort, convenience and long-lasting memories of a truly enjoyable vacation stay. You are invited to review our past guests experiences.

MISCELLANEOUS

Pet (small dogs only) and Kid friendly. Please, No Smoking. Garage parking not available; however, there is plenty of on-site parking (driveway easily accommodates 6-8 vehicles).

*Renovated lower level has two bedrooms (#5 & #6), one bathroom (#3), and a kitchenette. Downstairs is totally separate with its own entrance, and is available for an additional charge.

As the owner of Heaven by the Sea, I would like to welcome you to our lovely home. I am a retired Navy pilot and father of two beautiful children. While stationed in Florida, I absolutely fell in love with the area. I currently live in Saint Augustine, FL and Honolulu, HI (where I was born and raised). I have always lived very close to the ocean and beach all my life. It is my desire to share this unique experience of oceanfront living with others as well. We look forward to your stay with us and welcoming you and your family as our very special guests!

Fred R. purchased this house in 2010

I chose to purchase a vacation rental in this location because of the private, oceanfront setting offered. The warm weather, tropical breezes and ocean surf made this the ideal location for me. The property is also located in an exclusive ocean side community within minutes to historic Saint Augustine, Ponte Vedra and World Golf Village.

Perfect beach location--5 stars!

Our large extended family (11 adults; 2 babies) rented the entire Heaven by the Sea house the week before TS Debby hit. We have stayed at multiple houses in St. Augustine/Crescent Beach/Fernandina Beach through the years, and a few on the Gulf Coast, including some "mansions" with indoor elevators, etc. We are all on tight budgets and our beach week is our one big splurge each year. Fred's house was by far our favorite of all the places we've stayed! Probably the best feature is the proximity to the beach. The pictures on the web just do not do this house justice. When you stand in the upstairs living area and look out through the glass doors, it feels as if you are standing on the top deck of a boat. All you can see is ocean! You can litererally step off the bottom porch and in five steps or less, you are on the beach. It was perfect for our group which included a 6 month old and an 18 month old. As always, sunrises over the Atlantic were breathtaking, as were the sunsets from the back decks overlooking the intracoastal. The fishing from the beach was great this year, too.

The house itself was perfect for our group--comfortable but not worn out; beautifully decorated but not stuffy, and extremely clean. I'm a "bug" freak, and I didn't see the first one all week long. Also, we didn't need to bring any linens or towels...even beach towels are provided!

Fred was the perfect host. He is so friendly, eager to please his guests, and just an all around nice guy. I accidentally left my jewelry when we checked out, and didn't discover it missing until we'd returned home to Georgia. I contacted Fred and he went back to the house, located my jewelry, and made arrangements to meet up with my husband and me at OUR convenience to return it. In this day, it's rare to find such an honest, trustworthy person, and Fred definitely fits the bill.

We rarely stay in the same house twice when we vacation, but we are all already discussing our next trip and that we hope to come back to Heaven by the Sea again. This is definitely a place to spend a relaxing vacation, for travelers of all ages (our group ranged in age from 86 down to 6 months). It's private, yet close enough to St. Augustine and Jacksonville that we didn't feel isolated. Ad if you've never been to downtown St. Augustine, make it a priority while you're in the area. Love, love, love it!

I arrived at Fred's house by myself, (my husband was joining me two days later), with three small dogs and a ton of "stuff" to get up the stairs. Fred graciously helped me move everything and explained the key box and other details. Fred has put a lot of thought and consideration into the house, including a first aid kit I needed the first night there. He is working with someone to do some cosmetic work that any house next to the salt air will need. My dogs were great with being confined to the kitchen and we all appreciated being able to go under the stairs when it was raining. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Our kids have a week long break in February so we made a last minute decision to go to Florida. We got lucky and found Fred's house. He was wonderful and worked with us on short notice.
The house is much larger than it appears in the pictures and has wonderful, large, wrap around deck with gates at all the steps, so it was great for our dog. And would be great for families with small children. The beach is extremely pet friendly. The few people we saw on the beach were walking their dogs.
It was amazing being so close to the water with the house right on the beach with a commanding view from the deck.
The house is perfectly located, with St. Augustine only a short drive away and the Guana River State Park located across the street. The entrance of which is only a mile down A1A. The park has miles and miles of wonderful foot/bike trails, that we had a wonderful time exploring.
The ocean was pretty icy when we were there so it was too cold to get in. But the surf looked perfect for playing in the kayaks that Fred provides.
We are looking forward to coming back in the future when the water is warmer for more fun in the sun!

This place is AWESOME! The home is kept up very well-its very neat & clean. Location is perfect!! So much fun so close to home, but its hard to decide if you want to just sit home or hit the town. Lots to do. I had my family and my husbands family stay for thanksgiving. The kids are already wanting to make it a new "tradition" and come back every year!! This place is far enough for privacy but close enough for shopping, site seeing etc. We will be back!!

We recently stayed @ this property and it was fantastic. You can't get any closer to the ocean unless your on a boat! We had 4 adults and 5 young boys - and we had plenty of room in the house. The kitchen has anything and everything you can think there already. Very nice quality towels and the washer/dryer was ideal for all the kids clothes they go through. I will stay here again for sure.
