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.

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!

Our First Family Vacation in 25 Years

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the early hours on the 11th, just in time to see the sun rise. There were 9 adults and 5 children. Of course the first thing they wanted to see was the ocean view. (The little ones had no idea where we were going) The view was magnificent!! The house itself was very clean and very updated. It was beautiful! We had plenty of towels, blankets and a room for everyone. We really enjoyed our stay. It felt so much like home. We did get the privilege to have a sea turtle nest right next to the steps leading down to the beach. It was very educational for the little ones. We Thank the owners for the use of their home. Very Pleased and Refreshed

80th birthday party family trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family got together here for my father's 80th. Three generations all stayed there. Great beach front location on quiet area of the beach. There were two turtle nests on the beach right below the house when we got there, and one morning we discovered a new one, with fresh tracks, before the turtle patrol had even arrived. What a cool find! The house was fantastic, not super fancy but laid back and comfortable. The great room with living, dining and kitchen area was awesome for the entire clan to hang out while meals being made, etc. Plenty of room and all the furnishings were nice and the house very clean and up to date. Kitchen took a bit to get used to (Ikea european style appliances) but once you got the hang of it was great with a good layout for group cooking) With garage, plenty of parking. We also got a week's membership in the nearby Serenata Beach club, about a mile down the road and an easy walk or jog on the beach from the house. Membership was well worth it, with a good restaurant for snacks or lunch and a bar with adult and kid beverages (great shakes). Would recommend to any family and will stay here again on our next visit to the Ponte Vedra/St. Augustine area.
