About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)


This stunning oceanfront home includes the highly acclaimed Serenata Beach Club with three pools and more next door, all yours if you like for a week for your entire group (10 people, not including kids 6 and under) for only $245 - $266 (depending on the dates) for the week for your group. Plus maple flooring, elevator, marble, custom made designer appointments and more.

To call this home 'Paradise' is a big claim. It is true. There is no finer oceanfront home for rent in the Ponte Vedra/St. Augustine area, perfect for 2 to 3 families. Custom features include beautiful maple flooring, exquisite granite countertops, wood cabinets, designer lighting and plumbing fixtures and more including an available elevator. The layout, appointments and amenities are designer inspired from a famous area architect.

But let's start with the highly acclaimed Serenata Beach Club next door, just 700 feet down the beach. Three pools including an adult pool (oceanside), a family pool and a fabulous kids pool ... hot tub, full fitness center, daily kids activities, fitness classes including yoga and more ... plus a fabulous bar and restaurant. The premier home in the area with the Beach Club next door ... the best of all worlds. The beach Club is $245 in the Fall/Winter and $266 in the summer for 10 people (not counting kids under 6). $31 extra for each additional person.

The Great Room is really a Great, Great Room with panoramic ocean views where ever you are. From the Living Room area with large TV (Cable) including World War II battleship port hole window peaking out to the ocean to the gourmet Kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances. Then there's the the Dining Room that seats eight plus and the Breakfast nook (seats 4) that offers views to both the sunrise over the ocean while you sip you morning coffee and the sunset over the Intracoastal. And, of course, the wet bar is fully equipped.

Four of the five bedrooms have ocean views. Four include their own full baths and are really four master bedroom suites...two with Kings, one with a Queen and one with two doubles. One includes a sofa bed. The Bunk Room is the 5th bedroom with two sets of bunk beds. The home can comfortably sleep 14 to 16 people including children, especially with the sofa bed in one master bedroom and an air bed or two for kids.

All four full baths are beautifully appointed ... one with a Jacuzzi and one with a Steam Shower. Plus, a half bath.

Oh, and the deck and private walkway out to the beach. Large table and chairs to enjoy the morning sunrise or sip cocktails in the evening as you enjoy the sunset over the Intracoastal. Not to mention the hot and cold water outdoor shower.

And, of course, the home has wireless internet, a two car garage and full laundry room.

If you only take one vacation a year, make it a great one ... 'Paradise'.

Beautiful house in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We brought our management team of 5 to Ponte Vedra for meetings at our Florida facility. Instead of booking a hotel we stayed at this wonderful home. Everything is first rate, and comfortable. The location, right on the beach, is spectacular. I was able to swim in the Atlantic every morning as the sun broke the horizon. SO MUCH BETTER THAN A HOTEL, for the same or less money. The master suite is fantastic.

Thank you, so much, for allowing us to rent your home. We will be back.

Best Ever

  • 5 of 5

Anyone with a large family( we had 16) and love the beach this is the place.

Plenty of room and plenty of beach. It's almost like having your own private beach. The beach and water are so close it's like you are living on a boathouse. The house is great with plenty of sleeping quarters and plenty of bathrooms. The view from the family room is always good. As I said you are so close to the beach you can sit in the family room and watch the kids play on the beach. Great for Grandparents that just want to watch and relax indoors.

The management team was always easy to get in touch with if we had any questions are concerned.

Again if you love the beach and the ocean, it doesn't get much better than this house.

Our Family enjoyed it so mush we are going to try and come back next year. We just hope the house is available. I guess the best recommendation I can give is that every family member from the oldest to youngest said this was there favorite.

Our Family's Favorite!

  • 5 of 5

This is the fifth house our family has rented in the St. Augustine-Ponte Vedra area, and it is definitely our family's favorite! There was so much space, and all of it was convenient. We were especially pleased to have four private bathrooms, as well as a half-bath near the living area. The oceanfront balcony is perfect for early morning coffee to watch the sunrise and for "happy hour" to watch the sky turn pink as the sun sets behind us, and it's large enough for the whole family to gather!

It's our third rental from Oceanfront Property Management, and Rick is also our favorite property agent. He is totally honest and easy to get along with, always eager to know if we're satisfied with everything.

We truly enjoyed our week in "Paradise" and would highly recommend this rental in every way!

Great spot for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The house is right on the ocean. The beach is nice and wide and is good for sand castles and swimming. The house was spacious and clean. It was also fun to be able to walk down to the Serenata Beach Club to swim and order food. We will be back again!

Ideal beach location for our family

  • 5 of 5

As each member of our party of 10 entered "Paradise," came up the stairs and walked into the open dining/living area, they all had the same verbal reaction: "Wow!" The layout was comfortable for the family to hang out together during the day, yet provided nice private space for everyone at bedtime. Of course, the main point of our visit was the beach, and we were not disappointed. The ocean is just a few steps down from the back porch via a newly-constructed boardwalk. We had brought some of our own beach gear (toys, chairs, towels), but we shouldn't have as the owner had provided everything we needed. We essentially had our own private beach; the few neighbors we saw were mainly families with kids like us. The house is truly right next door to a very nice Beach Club, and we took full advantage of the opportunity with a temporary membership for our group. Everyone enjoyed the family pool, and the grownups used the gym and adult pool as well. We are science and nature lovers so we took a fun trip down to Kennedy Space Center and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge; and the wildlife estuary research park just three miles from the beach house was also worthwhile. The owner of the property was responsive to our needs and very reasonable to deal with. "Paradise" turned out to be perfect for our family.

Great in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Originally we were to stay at another property but due to the hurricane needed to change to this one....we were not disappointed.

There were ten of us and could have used an extra bedroom but it worked out.

Every room has a view of ocean....the house is layed out comfortable. There are plenty of towels and linens. The kitchen has every thing you need for cooking meals. The house is clean.

The elevator is a plus as we had our 92yr old mother who by the way loved being here!!! Sat in the chair in the living room with the ocean right in front of her!!

One of the showers didn't phone call to Rick and it was fixed the next day!!! These folks are so accommodating and a pleasure to deal with.

The room with the two beds were a bit soft to sleep...maybe for kids it's ok... but really all in all no complaints!!! We had a great time!!! We'd definitely do it again!!!
