Turtle Cay is an Oceanfront with a beachy feel and a “Touch of Class”. You will LOVE this beach home! It is perfect for family, friends or a nice romantic getaway. Beach views everywhere - Even from your bed in the Master, where you walk out onto the perfect deck; more about the deck later.

The fully equipped kitchen and dining area all with GREAT ocean views, opens to the spacious living room with plenty of space for family and friends. Above the fireplace is the perfect spot for the Large HD Flat Screen TV area all with fantastic views of the beach.

The Master Retreat is just that; a beautifully decorated bedroom and bath, replete with King Sized Bed, TV and private bath. As soon as you wake you will see the beach with Pelicans flying past your window in formation, dolphins playing in the waves. When you are ready, you can walk through your own private access to the fabulous deck overlooking nature’s beauty.

On the west side of the second level is another bedroom that has a Full Sized Bed and a Single Bed and an adjoining bathroom. In the afternoons you can walk out onto the balcony thru the French doors and enjoy sunset over the National Reserve, known as the Guana Reserve.

Downstairs has two bedrooms, one with an Over-sized King Bed with some ocean views through the dunes and the other we call the Kid’s Room with 2 Twin Beds. Both of these bedrooms have TV’s.

Also the downstairs has a FULL Bathroom with a Shower / Tub. You will also find the laundry room with full sized washer and dryer and a garage if you should care to use it for you automobile.

This home has the NICEST DECK OF ALL BEACH HOUSES.. It’s not bragging if it IS TRUE!

Once again, 'A Touch of Class'... The deck stretches from the north end of the house all the way pass the south end, then back to the west and around. It is covered on the back of the house, providing a shady, outdoor retreat, while the side and front deck are open to the sun for tanning. BTW, a touch of class refers to beach houses, not a Ritz Carlton.

This DECK is NOT WOOD! NO! It is MUCH Better than wood! No nasty splinters to get under your skin! No NAILS to pop up and snag you toe! This property features Veranda Decking, (composite decking.) It looks like wood, but it is a composite plastic like material that will not deteriorate over time.

So, if you are looking for that, “perfect” vacation house on the beach, with a “Touch of Class” look no more. You have found exactly what you are looking for, Turtle Cay!

Do you play golf? If so, you will think that you have died and gone to Golf Heaven. We have from one of the MOST FAMOUS Links in the world, The Tournament Players Club with the famous Number 17 Island Green; all the way to some very reasonably prices public courses.

By the way, it is a very short drive to the World Golf Village’s Hall of Fame, more great courses and even an IMAX Theater with a screen… well you will think that you are IN the MOVIE. So, do bring your clubs! If you have questions about any of the courses, feel free to ask, just call or email.

Special note for our disabled friends, this is a 2-story house, Master, 2nd bedroom, living area and kitchen upstairs (no elevator), bottom floor has two bedrooms, one with king size bed and other with two twin beds.

About Beach Homes

The out of town owner purchased Turtle Cay in April 2005. I am the property manager of this beach house. I have been a real estate broker for over 25 years, Our Company is, Vacation Quest Home Rentals. My name is Daryl Singleton and I am one of the very few 'natives' here in northeast Florida with relatives back to the 1600's. I went to the local high school, Fletcher. I married Ellen in 1974; we lived in Tampa and Key West when I was a vice president of what was then the largest shrimp boat fleet in the Gulf of Mexico. I truly do miss getting out on the docks, talking to the boat captains and most of all the VERY fresh and FREE seafood! Paying the big bucks these days in a store is just not so fun.

As a teenager, I belonged to the American Red Cross Life Saving Corp. The 'corp' will celebrate its 100th anniversary this year. Learning to be responsible for people's life at a young age AND my love for the beach and the vacationing people flows right into my love for managing vacation beach houses.

Real Estate stopped being fun years ago. People often had sad reasons to sell their homes, like death or divorce. But, people rent vacation homes for FUN! I love the fun.. I can hear the excitement in the people's voices when a future guests calls in to get information about a certain house or condo.

Being a local, I know the ins and the outs, where to go, what to do... the good restaurants, the ones to go to and more important the ones not to go to. Long and short, I know the area, I not only know the houses, but my wife, Ellen and I have stayed at most of them. I'm here to help and that's exactly what I love to do! Beach Homes purchased this house in 2005

Why Beach Homes chose South Ponte Vedra Beach

This is as near perfect as a beach house can be. It has great views from all sides, the wrap around deck is fantastic! It is not 'real' wood that splinters or nails that pop-up and really damage your feet

What makes this house unique

Perfect house in the perfect location, as 'they' say.... whoever 'they' are, a picture is worth a thousand words. Please check out the pictures.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This beach home is right on the best part of the beach! It was my birthday and I was there with my daughters and grandchildren. First of all the manager, Daryl, was so nice to work with, he went above and beyond to make our stay as special and comfortable as possible..Just a wonderful experience in renting a house. The house is clean, very roomy. Beware there is stairs. We brought a gate to protect our little 2 year old. There is plenty of kitchen ware, dishes, pots and pans. Lots of towels, plus beach towels. There is lots of beach toys for the kids and grown ups. There is also a varity of beach chairs to take down to the beach. The porch is exceptional. Nice breeze and comfortable seating. The outdoor shower came in very handy when you come up from the beach. Very happy expience for everyone. I will rent it again, maybe next year!

What a wonderful view! And a wonderful property manager! And what a cute place!

  • 5 of 5

I will start by saying I am extremely picky. So there is always something that is not exactly perfect. There's little of that in this home. The pictures (especially of the living room with updated furnishings) do not do it justice. Is it fancy? No, but it's very cute and the view with the covered deck is amazing! We had cool nights while there and we so loved sitting out there and watching the view from the very full moon! The house was so clean and comfortable. Again, if you are looking for plush, this is not it but what it lacks in plush it makes up for in the money shot off the deck. The laundry room had chairs and water toys, plenty of detergent and everything one would need. Great showers outside! The master bedroom had a nice slider to the deck. The bed was very saggy with little support--and that's the worst thing I can say about the whole trip. Daryl is incredibly detailed and we had no problems at all. In fact, we let him know some water boards were cracked (so he could prepare for the next guest--we were fine) and he had the maintenance person swing by and leave some downstairs--we didn't even ask! If I could go back today I would. Do not hesitate a bit on this rental. They are building a home next door but it's well along and we heard no noise during our time and only a few people were around during the day and they were VERY quiet. I just cannot say enough nice things and again, I am picky. Just fix that mattress in the master and it's perfection!

Owner's Response: I am SO pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Turtle Cay! Thank you so much for your kind words. At Vacation Quest, it is our ongoing mission to strive for perfection as much as possible. I will note that the bulk of the construction next door is finished with, and should no longer be a concern. We are very humbled by your praises, thank you again!

Our week at Turtle Cay is almost over and we're going to hate to leave!

The house is located directly on the ocean with spectacular views. You feel away from the hustle and bustle but are still only 15 minutes form the middle of St Augustine. The wrap-around deck is great for passing a lazy afternoon. There are plenty of chairs to spread out.

The house is nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. It is nice that the owners have pictures of their kids or grand-kids displayed.

The bedrooms are large with comfy beds. The bathrooms are nicely done and there is pretty good water pressure. The bedding and towels are good for a rental.

The kitchen is fairly well stocked with pans and dishware. There is a Publix grocery just a few miles south on A1A.

We had a problem with the air conditioning on check-in. Daryl had a service person here within a few hours (on a Saturday evening!) and he quickly repaired the system. The response was all we could have hoped for.

Our dogs loved romping in the surf and there were a couple of hoses to rinse them off. There were rarely more than a couple of folks on the beach. The laundry room was well stocked with beach chairs and water toys.

Turtle Cay was a great spot for a family Thanksgiving holiday!

Your Back Yard
Car: necessary

Turtle Cay is located between the Atlantic Ocean’s pristine, peaceful and quiet stretch of beach as your “backyard”. Across the street and just a little north of your front yard is a Nature Reserve know as the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve. The locals simply call it, “Guana”.

Guana has some very interesting Nature Walks and some great educational and “hands on” activities at the Guana Center just a couple of miles away. If you like to fish in fresh water, that too is available.. You can surf fish in the ocean and go across the street and catch fresh water fish.

It is hard to believe that here you are in such a quiet and sparse populated area; yet there are 3 restaurants with great food and ambiance within a 6 minute or less drive. Two of the restaurants you can dine outdoors under century old oak trees watching the boats going down the Intracoastal Waterway. Both have great food and wonderful ambience. Cap’s on the Water and Aunt Kate’s

Another nice, but beach casual restaurant only minutes away is The Reef; it is located directly on the Atlantic Ocean:

If you drive south for about 10 minutes you will be in historic St Augustine, the oldest city in America. Here you can tour the original, 'Castillo de San Marcos' a 400+ year old fort, take a horse and carriage tour or check out the shops on famous St George Street. St Augustine offers MANY restaurants from a family style on a pier, where you can feed the fish below in the water, while dining on the fish in the plate in fromt of you! If you prefer there are many quaint gourmet restaurants. There’s plenty of family fun of sightseeing, dining, shopping and recreation.

Just for one example of all the most famous restaurants in St. Augustine is the Columbia Restaurant. The first Columbia Restaurant is in Ybor City section of Tampa that has served authentic Spanish food since 1905. The Columbia Restaurant in Tampa is THE Oldest restaurant in Florida. The Columbia in St. Augustine is located in the historic district on the famous St George St.

If you drive north about 10 minutes you will find the upscale, Ponte Vedra; the home of PGA's TPC (Tournament Players Championship, where you can see if you can hit the green or land in the water on the most famous 17th island green. Here you will find world class golf, tennis and some of the finest restaurants in the country, including Ruth's Chris.

Please contact our office on go to our website for more information on restaurants, entertainment, shopping or anything that you want to know about our area. We live HERE, this is our home. We are NOT a “Call Center” in Kansas taking reservations from here to the famous town in Egypt. We are a LOCAL Company, we know our houses and our city.
