St. Augustine Area House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5+ Baths, Sleeps 12-16

'Ocean Estate' - Truly, this is the finest estate on the ocean in Ponte Vedra!

Drive through the gate and enter the most glorious 6000 sq. ft. estate home you will find available anywhere in Ponte Vedra. Step outside your backdoor and discover your own heated pool and 8-person hot tub. Rarely found anywhere else, and then just walk on down your own private walkway to the beach. It's all here for you. Your own vacation resort for your own family, two or three families or reunions. The best of the best!

Walk into the foyer, up the spiral staircase to the expansive living room with cathedral ceiling and gaze out the wall to wall windows to your first view of the pool, fountain and ocean. Look to your left to the formal dining room that seats eight to ten. And then the updated kitchen. Everything you need plus a breakfast room overlooking the ocean that also seats eight. To your right, enter the private Master Bedroom Suite (one of two Suites) with a King bed, sitting room, private balcony overlooking the ocean, TV and bath with double sinks, full walk-in shower and whirlpool tub.

Walk up the spiral staircase to the third floor and discover the second Master Bedroom suite, with separate tub and shower. Plus two additional bedrooms ... one with a King and bath and the other with a Queen. Both have TVs. Plus a day bed in an alcove, off the Master bedroom.

Now the first floor. Huge Family/Game room with all possible techno gadgets, plus an exercise bike, stair stepper, pinball machine, popcorn machine, electric piano and more. Relax and play with great TV room set up, wet bar and more. Plus, a large sectional couch which could be used for sleeping. 5th and 6th bedrooms have a Murphy bed (queen) in one bedroom and a bedroom off the Murphy bedroom with two twins ... kind of a 'family suite' ... both bedrooms share a full bath and/or half bath in the hall. Add an airbed or two for kids if you like. Finally, full laundry room, of course.

To stay in touch, of course, the home has wireless.

Just 10 to 12 minutes from Sawgrass and 20 minutes to historic St. Augustine - and golf, boating, fishing and more in between - welcome to 'Ocean Estate' ... your vacation estate home!

(Special note: Guests may have privileges at the exclusive Serenata Beach Club just 5 minutes south with two pools, restaurant, bar and fitness center.) $245 for your group for 10 people with kids under 6 free. ($266 during the Summer) ... $25 extra for each additional person.

Great for a Large Family

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in quite a few places and this is the best. The pool is large enough to swim and for lots of kids to play, the hot tub is great and the walk to the beach is fine. The kids loved the game room, and the bedrooms were large and well designed. The upstairs queen room is the only bedroom without a bath, but there are two half-baths available. Lots of parking space, and Rick & Jenny were very helpful and responsive.

Beautiful place and wonderful owner/managers!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, wonderful Thanksgiving family reunion at the Ocean Estate! The home was well-equipped for a big, BIG turkey and many pies...we cooked for days! We had a very nice pool, a great hot-tub(there was always someone in it) and a direct walkway to the beach...windy and lots of waves. The house was spotless and the game room was always filled with folks watching movies or playing pinball. We had a couple problems that were very promptly addressed by Jen and Rick. We just couldn't have asked for more cooperation and are grateful that our week-long family time was in such good hands! We would recommend this place and OF Property Management to anyone coming to a Florida beach. Many thanks!

Stunning Oceanfront Estate & Amazing Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

A group of business partners and I recently rented this property for a weekend retreat. Rick and Jenny were more than accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect! The house is absolutely beautiful and sits atop its own private beach in rear and with views of the secluded Guana River State Park on the other side of A1A, directly across from the front of the house. The location is perfect if you want to visit both St. Augustine and Jacksonville Beach, as the home sits almost at the midway point between the two. The property was immaculate upon arrival and the pool and jacuzzi were both functional and clean. Tons of windows make views of the beach possible in almost every room! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a private beach retreat with family or friends... This is without a doubt the crown jewel of Ponte Vedra Beach!

perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is now our second time returning to this amazing beachfront mansion. The layout of the home is great with ample space especially if traveling with kids. Sweeping ocean views to the east and the stunning inter coastal to the west , so pretty much any room in the house has a gorgeous view. It even has a game room/exercise room which was a big hit with our kids. Rick and Jenny are wonderful managers and take great care of this home. I would definitely recommend this home for a most memorable vacation.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented The Ocean Estate for our 20th Wedding Anniversary and we loved the home and location. To have beach access right off the back of the home, a beautiful pool and a 3rd floor deck facing west for sunsets was terrific. St. Augustine was a short ride to the south and there are a couple of great waterfront restaurants (The Reef and Capps on the Water) just 10 minutes away. Overall, the home was the perfect venue for our get a way and Rick was a terrific host, always available to answer our questions. Thanks for making our trip special and we will definitely recommend you to our friends! John & Nancy

Perfect beach vacation property for large family

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, spacious, well furnished and appointed home with excellent amenities at a rental price that offers a great value over similar resort properties on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts.

Our family of 14 from 4 states gathered here for our annual reunion and had a fantastic time. The house is so spacious it allows for group fun in several common areas while providing privacy when wanted. The pool is very large and well maintained. The beach is beautiful and very private. The location is ideal with none of the beach crowding congestion and traffic of typical beach resorts.

We enjoyed the pool and beach daily as well as the attractions in nearby St. Augustine. We also enjoyed the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Reserve, located just across the street. It has a great hiking trail system, wildlife viewing, fishing and kayaking.

We found this property to provide the best beach reunion we have had and we highly recommend it.
