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 $243 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 Spring and $266 in the summer for 10 people (not counting kids under 6). $25 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 six plus and the Breakfast nook that offers views to both the sunrise over the ocean while you sip you morning coffee and the sunset over the Intercoastal. And, of course, the wet bar is fully equipped.

All 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. Plenty of tables and chairs to enjoy the morning sunrise or sip cocktails in the evening as you enjoy the sunset over the Intercoastal. Not to mention the hot and cold water outdoor showers.

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'.

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!!!

Above and Beyond!

  • 4 of 5

This beach house was more than I could've imagined! We brought 15 people and had plenty of space for everyone. The house is very clean, nicely decorated, very well stocked with nice kitchen supplies, and right on the beach! We felt like we were the only people on the beach, which most of the time we were! We saw dolphins every morning, too! It's very close to a Publix grocery store and a stone's throw from gorgeous St. Augustine, where we toured the fort, did some shopping, and ate at Harry's. This will be our go-to house for (hopefully) many years to come! Thank you for your attention to detail with this property. I'm a hard one to please when staying somewhere other than my home, but this house was perfect!

Phenomenal Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Paradise was heavenly! We absolutely loved the house which seemed like a home away from home. The location directly on the beach provided us phenomenal sunrises and a private access to watch dolphins swimming just yards from the shoreline. Every room had breathtaking ocean views to enjoy! This is the best experience my family of 15 has ever had and we've been going on these yearly trips for 8 years. We hope we can make it a tradition to stay in Paradise every year!

A week in Paradise: great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had very high expectations given the online description and images of "Paradise," and the house and its surroundings more than lived up to its name. With five bedrooms spread across three levels, our family of 10 (my wife and I, our two grown daughters, our two sons-in-law and our four grandchildren) had plenty of room to roam, as well as peace and quiet when needed. Of course, when not on the beach, we spent most of our "house" time together in the massive, open-plan living room/dining room/kitchen.

The location could not have been better. The beach and ocean were right outside the back door, the Serenata Beach Club was next door, the charming and historic town of St. Augustine was a 10-minute drive to the south and world-class golf courses were maybe 15 minutes to the north in Ponte Vedra. Who could ask for anything more?

Rick (the owner) was professional from start to finish. He promptly answered our questions leading up to, during and even after our stay.

The food and service at the nearby club was also outstanding; the club has three pools -- a wading pool, a family pool with a waterfall and an adult pool with a spectacular view of the ocean.

No review would be complete without a nitpick: The outdoor BBQ grill was rusty and difficult to start, but my son-in-law (the BBQ King) figured it out and grilled up some great steaks. Rick said he would replace the grill, as he does about three times a year due to the salty ocean environment.

Bottom line: All of us – from the young ones to the young at heart – had a great time, and we look forward to our next trip to Paradise.

Comfortable and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the beaches of South Ponte Vedra for the last five years. Of all of the houses we've stayed in, this one was the most comfortable. It is very spacious and open with panoramic views while also providing optimal privacy. This is the perfect home for a large family or group and we loved the proximity to St. Augustine, restaurants and shopping.
