Guestbook comments from the manager

It was as wonderful as ever. The pizza at Pizzalley's in St. Augustine was tasty and it was great that they provide a gluten free option. The beach was amazing and seeing all the turtle tracks was a spectacular addition to our experience.



No rain this year, lots of good fishing, beautiful sunrises, awesome waves for boarding and plenty of sea shells and sharks' teeth. We'll see you next year!

This is a beautiful Wren Beach Rentals property. As with all Wren locations (we've rented 4 over 7 years), you can begin enjoying your stay the minute you walk in the door. This is just as advertised--very well-equipped, perfect location, straightforward rental agreement with no surprises. During all of our stays, we've only encountered only 1 minor hiccup which was corrected quickly and kindly. The area truly offers activities for everyone, plus restaurants and grocery stores conveniently nearby.

Magical Memories

  • 5 of 5

After friends had a horrific experience with another large rental company, we set out to find one that kept customers coming back. Wren Rentals did not disappoint and we have already recommended them to friends. The house was well equipped with what we needed... and the two washers/dryers were a dream come true! Several times we needed things and Steve came right over - he was very easy to reach and took care of everything. The absolute best part of our stay was the beach. This section of beach is not next to a public access, and so we had the beach to ourselves. It was magical for our 3 daughters and Goldendoodle - we did not want to leave! It was perfect for long walks and runs, as well as digging holes and building pirate ships. The hot tub and gas fireplace make this the perfect location for a winter rental. We had warm and sunny days - as well as cold windy ones - they were all great! We hope to come again and will definitely use Wren Rentals for all future beach stays!

wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Sandy Toes and loved it. The beach was mostly just ours and so peaceful. The house has everything you could need, from beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys, fully stocked kitchen, double washers and dryers, etc. We enjoyed it so much and plan to return.

Beautiful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful beach home with a great view of the ocean. The home provided plent of room for our 5 adults and 5 children . No need to bring beach towels..they had a huge basketful as well as plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards and beach toys. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with utensils, dishes, and small applieances...you really didn't need to bring anything except yourself, your personal belongings and food! We loved that there was another refrigerator in the garage as well to keep water and extra food. You will love the private boardwalk to the beach....a couple of steps and your in the sand! Speaking of the beach...it was like we had our own private beach, just us with a few folks now and then....the kids literally had the beach to themselves to run along and toss the football or play paddleball....no big crowds with beach umbrellas to get in the way...We had a small issue with the oven, but the property manager was there within minutes and resolved the issue. Good restaurants closeby and fun activities in St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra. We highly recommend this beautiful clean beach home.

We always love our stay at "plentiful" Sandy Toes

  • 5 of 5

We (my wife, daughter and Coco our Golden) love staying at Sandy Toes. It's the perfect place for us to get-away from it all. The home is well appointed with a nice kitchen and "plenty" of everything you'd need to cook a good meal and the BBQ outside makes it nice for grilling fresh caught fish or local shrimp. The beach is beautiful with hardly anyone on it and our Coco loves digging in the clean sand and jumping the waves. The home has some beach chairs, "plenty" of buckets for sand castles and boogie boards for the surf so we didn't need to bring or buy anything at the Publix store 15 minutes away...and "plenty" of towels to use after the beach or after some time in the hot-tub on the deck watching the clouds or night sky. Although the house might seem small for a larger family or friends...there are "plenty" of bedrooms and beds...TV's...and bathrooms...AND there is always "plenty" of space on the beach. That's why we like Ponte Vedra...it's all about the beach. Wren Beach Rental has some other beautiful properties that we have rented in the past when we needed a home with a bigger "area" inside the house for family and friends...but for us Sandy Toes had plenty of room.

Owners keep this house very clean and comfortable and Wren Beach Rentals make it very easy to rent from...as we keep coming back to year after year.

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!
