About The Owner

The owners live in Jacksonville, as do their three grown children and their families. All members of the family enjoy Guana Kai and all it has to offer - so you are spending time in what they consider a very special place!

The Owner purchased this villa in 1995

Why The Owner chose St. Augustine Area

South Ponte Vedra Beach is a beautiful part of northeast Florida. We live in Jacksonville, and we bought Guana Kai so we could really "get away", but not have to go too far. We use the house as our family beach house, but love to share with others so you can experience the relaxation this home has to offer.

What makes this villa unique

We have direct, private access to a gorgeous beach, access to an upscale beach club one mile south, and a 24 hour maintenance man so you are never stuck with an inefficient house.

Great Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This house is a perfect place to meet for a family reunion. Our daughters and their families from all over the US met us for a family get-together. We stayed here in 2014 and we came back. The house is amazing. Everyone loved the fantastic view. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. We took turns at cooking big dinners every night. If you need assistance just call Pam and Kelly. They will assist you ASAP. Watching the dolphins from the deck, sailing, riding the waves or just enjoying the uncrowded beach was worth the long trip. Also there are plenty of beach chairs, toys and towels for your use. We highly recommend Guana Kai for a family vacation.

Great Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our big mixed group! The teenagers loved the beach and the waves. Their parents loved the location... right on the water with very few people around, it's almost like having a private beach. The grandparents loved being with everyone, easy access, and the great deck which allowed them to watch all the beach fun. The sunrise from the deck was worth an early morning. It was easy to prepare meals in a kitchen that had all we needed. Supplied beach chairs, toys and towels was definitely a plus. We would all recommend this house for a family getaway.

Amazing Family Vacation Spot for the Ten of Us!

  • 5 of 5

We just ended spring break with our children and grandchildren - three generations in this lovely beach home - and we all had plenty of space to do our own thing. The house is grand, beach access is amazing, deck easily seats twenty, and the kitchen had every imaginable supply for cooking big dinners. The garage is loaded with beach toys for everyone, and two washers and dryers took wonderful care of our needs! It's no fault of this property or owner, but the sand gnats, or whatever those creatures are, prevented our enjoying the outdoors the way we would have liked. I would highly recommend this home for families who need a getaway on the ocean; it was first-class.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your generous review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back. Sorry about the sand gnats ("no-see-ums" to the locals), every once in a while they can get bad.

3 Generations- Lifetime beach house memories!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 families spent the Christmas holiday celebrating at Guana Kai and it was beyond amazing! The beautiful house and breathtaking beach views far exceeded our expectations. Mornings began with walks on the beach, daytime hours were filled with kids on body boards in the ocean, and evenings wound down on the huge moonlit deck listening to the waves. The kitchen is top-of-the-line & the large living/rec areas are perfect for kids & adults alike. Designer bedrooms are spacious and comfy. Memories made at Guana Kai beach house will last a lifetime!

Guana Kai is lovely. It's right on the beach so we were able to take long walks every day. It was lovely listening to the waves at night and to wake up every morning to the ocean. The house is decorated really nicely and very comfortably. We had two other couples and our three adult daughters visit us one weekend and there was plenty of room. Everyone remarked on how comfortable the beds are. The kitchen is large, well equipped and easy to take care of. Kat was very helpful and responsive. We had a great visit and have already re-booked for even longer next year. HIGHLY recommended!
