About David Lombana Wren Beach Rentals
Hi there! I am Judy Lombana Wren, owner (with my husband Bill) of WaterColors, manager of two otheroceanfront properties, retired university professor and mental health therapist, wife, mom, grandmother, and friend! Bill (a retired airline pilot) and I live in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida and Maggie Valley, NC. I have been involved with with the ocean, beaches, homes, decorating, and people all my life. WaterColors is our beautiful and spacious oceanfront home where we have large family gatherings and enjoy sharing with others. We hope you will love it too! We bought WaterColors in 1995. At the time, it was a large, somewhat bland home which had some wonderful attributes: an elevator, fantastic ocean views, spacious living area on the main level, plus a game room on the lower floor. Bill and I have signficantly remodeled and updated the house. We ripped out the kitchen and opened it to the living area; you will love the beautiful cabinets and huge granite island. We have expanded the deck, updated three bathrooms and added a fourth. We painted the house inside and out in happy beach colors. We installed a huge flat screen TV in the living room and put TVs in all the bedrooms, the kitchen, and the game room. For a number of years now, I have been managing other oceanfront homes, as well as my own. My son, David Lombana, has joined me in Wren Beach Rentals, and now manages 25+ oceanfront properties in South Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beach. We have a huge number of repeat renters and enjoy solid relationships with both owners and renters. We look forward to working with you!

Why David Lombana Wren Beach Rentals chose South Ponte Vedra Beach
We bought WaterColors in South Ponte Vedra Beach, because we knew it was a great investment. Our sucess with renting our first home, Sandpiper's Nest, convinced us that larger groups are also looking for top quality getaways on a very private beach. WaterColors is perfect for vacationers who want direct oceanfront, great views, spacious living quarters, quality furnishings, lots of amenities, and privacy. WaterColors is perched on a 100 wide lot, offering panoramic ocean views. The immediate area consists of single family homes, several great restaurants, a terrific beach club (available as an option to our renters who want a pool!)and miles of wide, sandy, car-free beaches. Our renters come here because they love the privacy and the fact that we are not surrounded by high rise condos, fast food restaurants, bars, hordes of people vying for space on the beach, or cars driving on the sand! However, we are not isolated! WaterColors is just 10 minutes from historic St. Augustine and 15 minutes from posh Ponte Vedra. We think we have the perfect beach location!

Great place for our family to stay. Lived up to the pictures!
Thank you for staying with us, Charolett. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay! Hope you will come back soon!
This house is perfect for a large family getaway. It is very close to St. Augustine, while also having great, sweeping views of the ocean. You can enjoy the beach during the day, and head to town in the evening. The trolly tour at Christmas in downtown St. Augustine was really a treat, and it was an easy 15 minute drive. The master bedroom is very beautiful with great bedding and nice towels. The kitchen is excellent, and the downstairs area has plenty of room for everyone. The only thing we could possibly recommend improvement on is the second master bedroom mattress. Otherwise, we were completely happy and enjoyed staying there. It is truly a gorgeous home right on the water, with every possible amenity. We absolutely plan to return.
Lovely Beach Home!
We spent the week of Christmas at WaterColors and had an absolutely wonderful time. The views were beautiful. We even saw a right whale, a first for any of us off this coast. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed to cook. The bedrooms and furniture were all comfortable and accommodated us perfectly. The big dining table fit us just right plus an additional table by the windows, perfect for doing puzzles. The location is great, convenient to both St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra. The floor plan of the home was also perfect. It was so nice and open across the kitchen, dining and living areas. We also greatly appreciated the elevator. We would absolutely stay here again. Highly recommend it!
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL VACATION
Each year I plan a family vacation for our children and grandchildren to gather with us. I contacted Judy Wren about renting the property "Water Colors" and she was so gracious, professional, and very focused on making sure our vacation was planned without flaw. This home could not have been more perfect. It met all of our needs and more. The beach is literally a few steps from the home and at night you fall asleep listening to the waves. My grandchildren had a blast playing in the waves and walking the beach finding seashells. We never left the place because every thing we needed was in the home and spending time with all of our family was our focus. I would highly recommend renting from Wren Properties. You want be disappointed!
I am so happy this nice family loved WaterColors and didn't stray far during their vacation. This is what we want for ALL our renters...a house that is set up so perfectly that our renters feel right at "home" and in spite of all the fun things to do in St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra, they are happy to spend most of their vacation right there, in the house, on the spacious decks, and on our lovely beach. We hope you will have the same experience!
Just what we were looking for!
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at WaterColors! The house was beautiful and clean. The property is right on the beach and it wasn't too crowded. St. Augustine is a quick drive or rideshare away so it was the best of both worlds. Finally, the interactions with the beach house owner, Judy, were very helpful. She was quick to respond and answer any questions we had while planning our vacation.
Enjoyed Our Stay
Really liked the layout of the home, and the elevator was a big plus. The kitchen was well outfitted and laundry facilities were great. The inclusion of bed linens, and bath and beach towels was fantastic, saving packing space and time.
Area: WaterColors is conveniently located between the golf mecca of Ponte Vedra Beach, 15 miles north, and historic St. Augustine, 6 miles south. It is situated on a barrier island with mostly single-family homes, although several excellent restaurants and convenience stores are located within a mile or so. It is an easy drive to either St. Augustine or Ponte Vedra for excellent dining, shopping, activities, and golf.
Golf: We have many public and semi public golf courses within a few minutes drive of the house. The World Golf Village, with the King and Bear and the Squire and Slammer, is just 15 minutes away. Check out the Royal St. Augustine, a budget friendly course with definite challenges. Play the St. Johns Country Club, South Hampton, or Cimarone, all located near each other.
