About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath beach house with an inviting back yard and incredible views!

Welcome to "Driftwood". This 3 bedroom 3 bath oceanfront home is located in the oceanfront community of South Ponte Vedra Beach, between Jacksonville and St. Augustine. It is situated in a private area of single family homes (no high rises or high traffic here!)! It is serene and quiet....yet the house is just 7 miles from historic St. Augustine and 15 miles from posh Ponte Vedra.

"Driftwood" has a unique floor plan that offers plenty of privacy in each of the three bedrooms, and has a very inviting social area in the living room and the oceanfront sun room. The house was remodeled in the Spring of 2015. Driftwood is decorated in wonderful ocean colors, and each room has it's own character. The living room features comfy leather sofas and chairs which surround a large flat screen TV. There is a stereo with CD player, plus books, and games for the entire family to enjoy. The oceanfront sunroom has a daybed, perfect for snuggling up with a book, or stretching out for a lazy nap. There is also a work space for your lap top, should this be a working vacation. Free WIFI is available throughout the house. There is a decorative (non-functional) fireplace with a stunning mantle made from a 300-year old piece of drift wood.

The remodeled galley kitchen is fully equipped with everything that the most demanding chef could request. The solid surface counter tops and cabinets are new. There is plenty of counter top space for food prep. The kitchen features a full size refrigerator, plus there is an additional fridge in the garage for extra groceries. There is a glass-top stove, overhead microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and more. There is a door that leads outside to the gas grill. We provide the propane for the grill. There is a laundry room off of the kitchen, so you can keep those sandy bathing suits clean. The dining area features a beautiful wood dining table with seating for 8.

The master suite is on the ocean side of the house, so you can listen to the sounds of the ocean at night. The king bed is covered with plush, comfy bedding and pillows. The remodeled master bathroom features a spacious walk-in shower.

The second bedroom features a very cozy queen bed and full bathroom. There is a shower-tub combination in this bathroom. The third bedroom has a full size bed with a pull out trundle underneath. This room is great for teens, children, or a young couple. There is a full bathroom in this suite as well, featuring a walk in shower. Every bedroom in the house has a flat screen SMART TV with basic cable provided by Comcast.

The back yard is a wonderful place to gather. There is are two wood decks that overlook the yard and the Atlantic Ocean. One deck features a beautiful teak patio set with plenty of seating and a table that seats 8 for an ocean front lunch. The other deck has recliners for you to work on your tan. The back yard has a brand new bulk head, with just a few stairs that lead you down to your own beach.

Other amenities include: optional temporary beach club membership, 2-car garage, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, toys, 4 TVs, high speed Internet, books, games, and more.

Sorry, Driftwood is not a pet-friendly home.

About David Lombana

Driftwood is owned by Ken and Angela Graf of Moorestown, New Jersey. They have been vacationing in the area for years, and finally decide to buy a beach house of their own. They spent many months in 2014 and 2015 remodeling the house, and have done a wonderful job. After renting other houses from Wren Beach Rentals, they have hired WBR to manage the rentals for Driftwood. We at Wren Beach Rentals are very excited to have the Grafs, and their wonderful home as part of our family.

David Lombana purchased this house in 2014

We absolutely loved our stay at driftwood! Everything was perfect! Thank you to Wren Beach Rentals for very friendly professional service! The house was spotless clean when we arrived and everything was so tidy and welcoming. We loved the spacious rooms, fully stocked kitchen, gas grill, extra fridge for drinks, the list goes on and on.

Very nice spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this home. Right on the water, we spent most of our time on the deck. Being a ranch was awesome, no luggage up and down the steps. Nicely remodeled, great kitchen, nice appliances. Bathrooms were very modern. I would recommend this home to any small family looking for quiet vacation. No one on the beach, it's all yours.

Beachfront Family Friendly Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the Driftwood! They had everything we needed for our family including the kids. The house was equipped with a pack and play, high chair, booster seat, sun shade, kids sand toys, wagon, etc. There wasn’t anything we needed that wasn’t provided. The house was perfectly decorated! The location was perfect! A quiet spot on the beach but could be in St. Augustine or Jacksonville quickly. We enjoyed this perfect spot on the beach. The beach area was private and had plenty of space. Hardly anyone else was out at the same time.

If you stay here, definitely eat at Caps on the Water just a few miles away. Amazing food!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Driftwood this summer. As mentioned, the house is in a great location where the beach is very private. However, you are just minutes from several great restaurants and of course, historic St. Augustine. We look forward to having you back again soon. David Wren Beach Rentals

Wonderful vacation experience! Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is wonderful: spacious, lovely decor, comfortable furnishings, and completely stocked with everything you'll need, from the kitchen to linens to beach towels and toys. We felt at home. The location is superb. We were steps to the beach, minutes to restaurants and a short drive to St. Augustine. Our family enjoyed a fantastic week of sightseeing mixed with plenty of beach time. We hated to leave and all agreed that we would love a return visit.

Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4, my husband, myself and two young adult children had a great stay at the Driftwood! The house is wonderful inside, newly remodeled, super clean, large well equipped galley kitchen. The kitchen was stocked so well, right down to clips for snack bags, everything you could possibly need was there. The bedrooms were all a good size, bathrooms were nice. The best thing about this house was the awesome ocean views from the sunroom!! Large windows all along the back of the house gave us amazing views of the ocean, beautiful sunsets etc! Also, the beach is truly private and only a few steps away from the back deck, great for swimming! Never saw more than a dozen people along that whole section

of beach. The owners thought of just about every need, plenty of beach towels, lap blankets, cooler etc. The manager, David, was easy to deal with and the property is well taken care of.

The house was also very conveniently located, about 10 minutes to the market and 15 to historic St Augustine. When you need a break from the beach there are many things to see in St. Augustine. The Flagler College tour, Castillo de San Marcos, and Villa Zorayda tours were all well worth seeing. Also many shops and restaurants to explore. We all had a great time here, and would stay at the Driftwood again if visiting this area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at "Driftwood" this summer. We are very glad that you had a great time. As mentioned, the home was recently remodeled (Summer of 2015), and the home owners did a great job with everything. Unlike a lot of houses in the area, Driftwood has a bulk headed back yard, that offers a great space for the family to gather while enjoying the incredible views of the beach and the ocean. We hope to have you back again soon!

Amazing Beach Front Cottaage

  • 5 of 5

This was an adorable house, outfitted with everything our two family group could ask for. It was clean, bright and spacious. Beautiful beach cottage furnishings with comfy beds and large rooms. The ocean views from the house were perfect for sunrises and the large deck overlooking the beach was enjoyed daily.

The management staff attended to all our needs and made the rental process a breeze.

We will definitely return !

Caps on the Water

"Driftwood" is direct oceanfront, located between the Atlantic ocean and the IntraCoastal Waterway. The beach is very private, peaceful, and quiet. No cars are allowed on the beach, and there are no high rises or fast food joints to interrupt your serenity. There are several excellent restaurants and shopping for every day items within a five minute drive! The Serenata Beach Club, with its 3 huge pools, work out facility, and activities for children, is just a mile away, and is available for temporary membership. St. Augustine is a 10 minute drive and offers plenty of attractions, great seafood, day spas, fun shopping, fishing and boating charters, many golf courses, including the World Golf Village, and more. In 15 minutes you can be in posh Ponte Vedra, with more great restaurants, shopping, and more golf! Day trips to Disney, Daytona Speedway, and Marineland are easy! However, Out of the Blue is so beautiful , with a great deck and beach that you may not want to leave the house!

Golf: There are many golf courses in the area. For the extreme golf fan, the World Golf Hall of Fame is 25 minutes away and features two world-class 18 hole courses. There are many public courses in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, and Jacksonville.
