Welcome to Sandy Chic! Memories await in our freshly renovated, beautifully decorated home! If you are looking for a cheap beach shack, or party pad please don't bother inquiring. This home has fine furnishings, beach antiques and a Nantucket feeling in Florida. We only want respectful renters interested in staying in a true home away from home. You will arrive to a beautiful new kitchen with hardwood floors throughout. The house has a separate dining area overlooking the beautiful Guana State Nature Preserve and livingroom overlooking the Altantic. The 3 full bathrooms have been completely renovated and there are 4 bedrooms which have fresh, hi-quality linens, fresh towels and comfortable beds. The oceanfront master bedroom features a plush king bed and private full bathroom. The 2nd bedroom is also on the ocean and has a queen bed. Bedroom 3 has two twin beds and shares a full bathroom with the 3rd bedroom. The kids' room has two bunk beds, lots of games, and a full bathroom.
The extra large family room offers the perfect escape from the afternoon sun with panoramic views of the ocean, a vaulted ceiling and a stone fireplace. Enjoy the new high definition flat panel TV while you cruise the internet on the WiFi connection.
This home is nestled between the soft sands of South Ponte Vedra Beach and The Guana State Park. Enjoy the vast views of the ocean from the rear of the home to the beautiful orange and pink sunsets that serenade over Guana Park. Stroll for sea shells and sharks teeth along this desolate strip of the beach, or drop a line for surf fishing. Enjoy the gentle ocean breeze under the shade of a large umbrella on the beach while your family plays in the afternoon tide pools or makes sand castles. Dig your toes into the sand while you count the dolphins and shrimp boats.
Keep an alert eye for the turtle patrol atop their 4 wheel ATVs. Our family was fortunate enough to witness a turtle nest hatch last summer. I'll never forget the amazement in our children's eyes as they watched 30-40 baby sea turtles tirelessly crawl their way to the sea.
We are only a few miles from some wonderful restaurants on the water and a convenience store. We are approximately 10 minutes to major shopping areas.
Only 20 minutes away is historical St. Augustine, home to the infamous fort Castillo de San Marco. While there, enjoy a horse drawn carriage through cobblestone streets or stroll along the many shops and restaurants.
We were fortunate to stay the full month of February. This house lives up to all the pictures and then some. The views of the ocean are amazing. Plenty of room, open living space, comfortable in every way. The rental agent gave excellent customer service, providing us with additional lounge chairs for the deck, etc.
The house was in immaculate condition, all the appliances worked well including heating system. We loved the area, easy access to St. Augustine, which we explored as well as Jax and Atlantic beach for great restaurants and shopping. Couldn't ask for anything more..we will be back!
This house rental was beyond beautiful! The home offered wonderful views, and everything you would need to make your stay memorable. My family and I will be renting this home again in the future.
This was just an amazing house for our needs -- guests ranged in age from 88 yrs to 5 years. Beautifully furnished, toys and games for the children, private beach, fully equiped kitchen. I could go on and on -- suffice it to say that our stay was fabulous and we would not hesitate to return. A huge thank you to the owners for sharing your lovely home with us.
This was our 3rd consecutive year renting Sandy Chic and 6th year renting from Wren beach Rentals.
As always, David was always available and helpful when we needed him. The house is as advertised and great for a family of 5.
Cannot say enough about the home, beach and area. We just love coming each year and plan for many more.
When we arrived at the Sandy Chic beach home, we had high hopes for a beautiful beach getaway, based on our review of photographs of the property. Little did we know that we'd be instantly impressed way beyond our expectations, and that the vacation home would far exceed the beauty, charm and casual elegance that were depicted in the photos! Every room of the home is beautifully decorated, perfectly clean, inviting, and comfortable yet extremely chic indeed! We enjoyed long afternoons on the sprawling beachfront deck and, from the same deck, the most glorious sunrises we have ever seen. The wide, sugar-sand beach was immediately accessible from the property's private boardwalk, where a captain's chair invites quiet moments overlooking the sea. The boardwalk is complete with a convenient shower and faucet, and another is available for washing off on the deck. A lovely balcony compliments the front of the home and, from there, incredible sunsets can be viewed over a seemingly endless expanse of undeveloped nature preserve. Because of this preserve, star gazing at night is at its best, as no ground lights are there to interfere with the majesty of the night sky. Every bedroom of the home is decorated beautifully, and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The modern kitchen offers every amenity, and the home is quite comfortable for a large family or group with its offer of three full baths. The proximity of Sandy Chic to Publix and other stores is incredibly convenient. We greatly enjoyed Cap's on the Water and The Reef restaurants, and it was a short 20-minute drive along the beach to St. Augustine, where there are endless things to do! In fact, Sandy Chic's location is perfect: between the beaches and attractions (such as an incredible zoo) of Jacksonville and the historic charm and beauty of St. Augustine. We absolutely loved our stay at Sandy Chic on Vilano Beach! We plan to stay there as often as possible and, when in the area, wouldn't stay anywhere else! :)
We've stayed at Sandy Chic twice and love it. The layout is open, and the decor is attractive and comfortable. Two of the four bedrooms have an ocean view. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes and "community" seasonings. There is a large deck with a picnic table, grill and chairs for lazy days watching the waves rolling in. While the home is about a 12-15 minute drive to Ponte Vedra or St. Augustine, we enjoy the wide open beaches and serenity of the area. The property manager is very responsive and makes the process easy. We would highly recommend a vacation at Sandy Chic!
Sandy Chic is located directly on the ocean in South Ponte Vedra Beach, just south of the beautiful Guana State Park. A 10 minute drive north will take you to Ponte Vedra, a golfing mecca, and a 15 minute drive south will take you to charming St. Augustine, America's 'oldest city' and home of quaint shops, excellent restaurants, tourist attractions, and more golf! Day trips to DisneyWorld, Daytona Speedway, Marineland and the Kennedy Space Center can be accomplished easily from our central location!
