About Frederick Jenkins

I have lived in Jacksonville for twelve years and have worked as an emergency physician in the area since completing my residency at Shand's hospital. I have traveled extensively along the Florida coast and can tell you that northeast Florida is one of the most beautiful and pristine parts of the state. The coastal wildlife, from our vast bird preserve across the street to the rich St. John's river fishery, is unrivaled.

Frederick Jenkins purchased this house in 2002

Why Frederick Jenkins chose St. Augustine Area

Our house is located on the northern segment of South Ponte Vedra Beach. This is a particularly desirable section of this beach because on the opposite side of A1A, the coastal highway, is Guana River State Park, which includes a large tidal estuary and a bird and wildlife preserve. Such a vast game preserve produces huge numbers of pelicans, ospreys, egrets, cranes, and wood-storks which fly over the house and feed in the ocean behind the house and the marsh in front of it. There is no commercial glare along this section of the beach. The dunes and beach are in their natural, un-replenished state. The color of the sand is a gorgeous coral hue.

What makes this house unique

The house is large (3000 sf) and new. The construction is solid poured concrete and the appliances and HVAC are brand new. As such, tenants enjoy a vacation right on the sand without having to tolerate the musty, beach-shack experience that is commonly encountered. As the photos portray, the house is elegantly appointed and gorgeously decorated.

Perfect beach house. Wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my in laws and 2 5 year old sons and we truly enjoyed our week. The home is very nice and well thought out. The beach is beautiful and so accessible. It has multiple living spaces and plenty of towels and other accessories. We have stayed in other homes nearby and this was our favorite. Also the owners were nice enough to leave us a bottle of wine and some coffee.

Property worked very well for us and we enjoyed our stay there.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very nice with great access to the beach and within about 10 minutes to St. Augustine. The kitchen is large with abundant cabinet space and more than adequate overall although the ladies did complain somewhat about needing more pots/pans, not sure. The only other recommendation I have is that the little charcoal grill is inadequate for cooking for large group and a good sized gas grill would be much more suitable.

The Jenkins' have replaced the sofa from the one in the photo and it was very comfortable and provided ample seating in the living area. When we checked in Saturday evening one of the lamps had a switch missing so there was no light on the night stand, the arms to the dining room armchairs were loose (easy fix as there are plenty of tools in the garage) and the screened in porch was dirty. I sent an email to Dr. Jenkins about these issues and the very next day Jessica Jenkins came by and personally took care of all the issues! VERY IMPRESSED with such a quick response!

Some mornings we enjoy going into St. Augustine for coffee at Cuccoburra's and we always plan to eat at least one meal during the week at Columbia House and pizza place in Vilano just west of the Publix.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful property!

Beautiful home and stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at Rising Tide very much. We were greeted with a lovely bottle of wine and Starbucks coffee. This beach house is absolutely beautiful and the views are stunning. We had lots of room for our children and grandchildren. Everything we needed was provided. The owner was very prompt in getting back to us with any questions. We love St. Augenstein and when we return we will be staying at this location again. Thanks from The Potts family.

Fantastic place to get away

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to host a high school graduation party for three girls. Honestly Friday-Tuesday wasn't enough time, wish we could have stayed longer. It was the most perfect setting for our friends and family to celebrate the girls. The house is beautiful, great open floor plan with plenty of room. Nice big back yard with incredible ocean front access, it's almost like we also had our own private beach too. Can't say enough good things about our stay and look forward to going back again.

Wonderful home! Beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beach house the first week in April. We really had great weather 80* and sunny. The three bedrooms upstairs with a master suite downstairs was the perfect layout with our two children & my in laws. There is a small living area upstairs also. Great for when the kids want to watch cartoons while we enjoyed the Masters in the main living room. Sun porch upstairs, shade porch downstairs & a screened in patio where we ate dinner every evening. Kitchen was well stocked and very spacious. Beautiful fenced in private yard was prefect for our dog.

I would recommend putting box springs under the mattresses in the room with two beds. Our toddler was fine, she is tiny. However, when I sat on the bed for story time, the mattress folded between the slats. Easy fix though.

The beach is dog friendly with no leash laws. We could play on the beach for hours and not see a soul. No hotels or condos near by so I feel like it would not be crowded no matter what time of year we visit.

My husband and his father played golf. We did not go out at all so I do not have much input on restaurants. We ordered Chinese one night from Wok n Roll & it was quality food. Fast delivery to the house.

We will definitely return soon!

Spacious Home at Great Value

  • 5 of 5

This spacious and well designed home enabled our family to have a great vacation together on the beach in spite of less than favorable weather conditions. We arrived at the home during a cold spell that brought cloudy, rainy and cool weather conditions for our entire stay. However, the interior design of the home allowed us to experience the views and sounds of the ocean from the warmth and comfort of the inside, as well as enough space and privacy to avoid getting on each other's nerves. The convenience of being very close to St Augustine also provided a lot of entertainment options.
