South Ponte Vedra Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, sleeps 8-9..

'Loved your house ... Can't wait to come back'. These are some of the comments we usually hear from our guests. Imagine spending a week or more with your family in a beach home with an expansive oceanfront deck which leads to your own catwalk to your own private beach. Long beach walks on a beach with few others around, early morning shelling, gatherings on the deck in the evening to watch the sun set to the west or the sun rise in the morning over the ocean. Ahhhh!

The home sits across from the Guana River State Park allowing great hiking in the estuary or tours of the Guana River Estuary Educational Center for those who enjyou nature. Once your beach day is finished, your group can head to St. Augustine for wonderful restaurants and a tour of 'the oldest city.' Or you can go into Ponte Vedra to play one of the famous golf courses. So much to enjoy!

wide open beach

These are just a few of the memorable times that await you at our Bit O'Beach Heaven!

Relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Bit O'Beach Heaven vacation we had is definitely on the 'redo' list. Our family loved it so much we can't wait to find a time to go back again soon enough. Although it initially looked a bit small compared to the other mammoth houses on the strip, we were pleasantly surprised when we entered. The house is lovely, quaint, cute an cozy and turned out to be the perfect size for our family to get away and had plenty of room for friends join us for beach fun. The furnishing were sufficient and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make our usual family creature comforts. I personally loved the deck and waking every morning to have coffee and say good morning to the sun as local fish boats combed the area. My kids turtle nests and woke up every day to see if they could identify any activity in any of them. The beach was quite and there were days we felt we had the beach completely to our selves. Additionally, the location was close to activities with St. Augustine just 10 minutes away and Jacksonville about 20. Rick was also close at hand and quick to respond when we had an inquiry. I would definitely stay here again!

Bit O'Beach Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Bit O'Beach Heaven is a perfect description for Rick and Jenny's cozy beach house! They had everything we needed! We were pleasantly surprised by the fresh flowers through out the house when we arrived! Every morning we watched the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean which was amazing! Our days were spent walking the beach, collecting beautiful sea shells, swimming in the ocean, watching the Dolphins and Pelicans go by and relaxing on the beach and deck! The house is 10 minutes from St. Augustine which is a lovely seaside town that has great restaurants and shopping! Thank you Rick and Jenny for a perfect 10 days at your beach house!

Great Beach House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this beach house. We stayed here for a week with the family and loved it! The location is great - just a 10 minute drive into downtown St. Augustine. The beach is pretty private, we had it all to ourselves for the majority of the time. The house is clean, equipped with everything you need, and the deck is just fantastic. Huge deck for everyone to hang out on, the beach is right there....we absolutely loved it. We would definitely consider staying here again!

Fantastic location and views!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to spend a week with family. The location is perfect. Close enough to St. Augustine but very private and quiet. We had the beach to ourselves almost every day. The owner is very responsive and willing to help out with whatever is needed. The house has an upstairs bedroom and living room which is great for adults to separate from kids as needed or for multiple couples to have privacy. Plenty of towels, all the kitchen items needed, updated xfinity cable and internet all make the house inside very comfortable. Best part of all is being able to spend time outside on the huge deck watching the tides and listening to the waves. We would recommend this house to friends and family.

Beautiful and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your beach house! It was the perfect size and location for our family. We, of course, loved the deck and being able to enjoy the ocean while our son napped inside. We went to the alligator farm one day and into St. Augustine for ice cream easily. We really loved eating dinner at Caps on Friday night- the kids loved feeding the roosters on the beach! We hope to return to Bit O Beach Heaven next year!
