Almost Heaven is a magnificent oceanfront 3 bedroom 2 bath home. The interior was completely remodeled in December 2015. Located in the oceanfront community of South Ponte Vedra Beach, between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, it is situated in a private area of single family homes (no high rises or high traffic here!)! It is serene and quiet....yet the house is just 5 miles from historic St. Augustine and 15 miles from posh Ponte Vedra. From the moment you enter Almost Heaven, you feel the warmth of the Florida sunshine, and you know you are at home.
Recently purchased in early 2015, the home owner has done a complete remodel to the inside, and out. The living room has expansive views of the dunes, and Atlantic Ocean. The oceanfront master bedroom features a private bathroom, walk-in closet, and new plasma TV. The kitchen opens to a dining area with seating for six, plus two more at the breakfast bar. The multi-level deck features a gazebo, private beach walkway, and an elevated lookout deck that offers 360º views. You will love this house!
The kitchen opens up to a cozy dining area with seating for 6. There are two bar stools at the breakfast bar pass-through for additional guests. The kitchen is fully furnished so you can prepare your favorite meals just like home. There are several grocery stores in St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra. There is a gas station/convenience store about 2 miles north of the house where you can find most daily items.
The living room features a new plasma TV, DVD player, and stereo to keep everyone entertained and up to date while on vacation. Books and board games are provided for the enjoyment of both young and old.
The master bedroom features a cozy queen bed, loaded with fluffy pillows and snuggly comforters. There is a wall-mounted plasma TV with cable channels for your enjoyment. The master bathroom has a spacious walk-in shower and his and her sinks. There is a large walk-in closet for all of your belongings.
The 2nd bedroom is decorated with warm colors and has an inviting queen bed. There is a closet and dresser for all of your personal items. This bedroom shares a full bathroom with the 3rd bedroom.
The 3rd bedroom is perfect for kids or teens. There is a twin-over-double bunk bed. With the trundle, this bedroom sleeps 3 adults or 4 children.
The den has a daybed that sleeps 1 additional guest.
The rear deck is the perfect place for outdoor socializing. It has plenty of lounging furniture for everyone to get a good tan. If you want to enjoy outside, but stay out of the sun, you'll love the covered gazebo. The elevated overlook deck offers 360º views of the ocean and the intracoastal waterway. There are plenty of beach chairs to take to the beach.
There is a two-car garage with automatic door opener to park your vehicles. There is additional parking for 2 more cars on the driveway.
5 star We loved property!! Home was beautifully updated to bring tranquility of the beach into interiors. Large open kitchen,family room provided great gathering area for our family to cook, dine, and relax together. Property was clean,fully-equipped(towels, games, beach chairs, grill etc )and wonderful customer service . The beach location was awesome. Daily sunrises,bogey boarding,surfing,paddle boarding,shelling,grilling, and stargazing.We ventured into the area for great fishing, St Augustine shops, Jax beach bars, Caps restaurant,golfing!! Our dog Kona loved the beach and family time with our two sons 24 & 22yrs and their girlfriends! Have already recommended to three people this week!!Hope to visit next summer!!
We loved staying at Almost Heaven. The updates in the house were done beautifully. The sun deck was everyone's favorite spot to hang out during the week. It was in a very nice location close to the beach club and Publix. The best part was the house came with all the little extra house, kitchen, and paper products that other beach houses normally do not offer. We loved it so much we want to rent it again for next year.
Loved the location of the house. ..especially loved the master bedroom. ..but many repairs and remodeling needed done to the home. My husband and I kay looked at the house again. .thinking of renting it again.. Just seen is bean remodeled and it looks fantastic! This really makes me want to rent this exact house again! Just beautiful looking!
The house is a bit dated, especially the kitchen. Had to clean substantial cobwebs from inside the window over the front door…made me feel as if house may not have been as clean as could be. The decks and boardwalks are worn, paint chipping, warping, etc. Garage was very cluttered, and driveway severely broken. With some updates this would be a much better vacation spot,
We had a great time at Almost Heaven. It was very spacious and well furnished with everything we needed. Right on the beach with lots of sand.
We have been in a number of Wren Houses and found this one to be as satisfactory as the others. We were particularly fond of the multi-level decking and spent most of our time there. The Wrens did a great job of renovating this property and the price for beachfront is great.
Almost Heaven is direct oceanfront, located between the Atlantic ocean and the IntraCoastal Waterway. The beach is very private, peaceful, and quiet. No cars are allowed on the beach, and there are no high rises or fast food joints to interrupt your serenity. There are several excellent restaurants and shopping for every day items within a five minute drive! The Serenata Beach Club, with its 3 huge pools, work out facility, and activities for children, is just a mile away, and is available for temporary membership. St. Augustine is a 10 minute drive and offers plenty of attractions, great seafood, day spas, fun shopping, fishing and boating charters, many golf courses, including the World Golf Village, and more. In 15 minutes you can be in posh Ponte Vedra, with more great restaurants, shopping, and more golf! Day trips to Disney, Daytona Speedway, and Marineland are easy! However, Almost Heaven is so beautiful , with a great deck and beach that you may not want to leave the house!
Golf: There are many golf courses in the area. For the extreme golf fan, the World Golf Hall of Fame is 25 minutes away and features two world-class 18 hole courses. There are many public courses in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, and Jacksonville.
