Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

The pink sands, gentle waves, and vast blue sky of Ponte Vedra Beach are all yours at Tara’s Haven, our big beachfront house right on the dunes. Revel in gorgeous views and luxurious accommodations

Tara’s Haven overlooks one of the most beautiful beaches in northeastern Florida, a strip of coastline uncrowded by tourists and teeming with marine life, from dolphins to whales (in season). The sun rises majestically over the horizon here, looking almost close enough to touch and beautifully coloring the morning clouds all shades of pink and purple. Pelicans fly the past, terns and gulls call, and the breeze is balmy with a hint of salt.

You can enjoy all this from the oceanfront deck at the house. Filled with casual outdoor furniture, it’s a great place to relax any time of night or day. The lull of the surf is so peaceful, and the view is ever-changing. Bring a book or your computer out here (your free WiFi at Tara’s Haven works on the porch, too!) and lose yourself in the calm beauty. This is what beachfront living is all about!

When it’s time to go indoors, you’ll be delighted by how spacious, well furnished, and comfortable the house is. It’s new and very nice without being stiff or formal – the perfect combination to keep everyone in your group at ease and having fun! The design is open-plan, so the great room segues into the dining area and the kitchen. This is great during mealtime prep so that even the cooks can feel as though they’re part of the action . . . and can enjoy the ocean view from any point!

One area of the living room offers ultra-comfy couches (one of which unfolds into a bed for 2, giving some lucky folks a front-row seat for the sunrise each morning!) surrounding a big TV with cable and DVD player. Another is a conversation grouping near the oceanfront windows, perfect for intimate conversations or marine-life viewing through the big telescope. A third is a game table in a sun-drenched corner with breathtaking ocean views, just right for that jigsaw puzzle or Parcheesi tournament. Everyone can find their own ideal spot and indulge in their favorite pastimes while staying with the whole gang!

In still another part of the great room is the long wooden dining table, big enough for your whole group. Whether you’re preparing homemade feasts, getting restaurant takeout, or doing a little of everything this vacation, you’ll find that this table quickly becomes your command center. And with comfortably padded chairs, it’s a great place to linger long after the dishes are cleared, playing Old Maid with the whole family or poker for pennies.

The kitchen is adjacent to the dining area, a bright and cheerful space fully equipped with all the cookware, dishes, utensils, and appliances (large and small!) you could wish for. All it needs is a grocery run on your way into town!

There are 4 bedrooms at Tara’s Haven, each designed to deliver a great night’s sleep. The master is the most palatial, with a king-sized bed, spectacular ocean views, a flat-screen TV, and an en-suite bath. Oh, the bliss of retiring to your own niche by the sea each night!

Each of the other 3 bedrooms contains 2 twin beds, one with a flat-screen TV and all beautifully furnished. All of the linens, pillows, blankets, and towel sets for the bedrooms and bathrooms are provided for you here. And you are welcome to use the washer and dryer at Tara’s Haven whenever you like to keep everything fresh. (You’ll go through a lot of towels at the beach!)

Tara’s Haven has everything you need for a wonderful vacation

Come stay at Tara’s Haven very soon, and discover luxurious beach.

This property has optional access to the prestigious 5 Diamond resort The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.

NICE CONDO BUT, NO ATTENTION TO DETAILS!!

  • 4 of 5

The condos at CB are very nice and comfortable, however, the difference between having a great experience or, a lousy one is in the "details".<br/>Unfortunately, the owner in this unit has the "cheapest and lowest" quality linens you could find, specially the towels,these were more floor rags than towels, some of the furniture has not been cleaned or, replaced since the condo was purchased, lastly, the kitchen utensils were cheap with only one "non-stick" pan old and scratched.<br/>Summary, the experience was like staying in a Marriott Suites but, with "MOTEL 6" accessories!

Beautiful beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

Waking up to the beautiful sunrises and having the beach as your back yard was amazing! The house was very clean, bright, & well decorated! This was the perfect vacation house for my family.

Spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

I want to start by saying the pictures don't give it justice. Definitely need to be updated. The house has been updated so when we arrived we were surprised. Absolutely breathtaking view and access to the beach! The house came with almost everything not much was needed. Great kitchen with everything you need. We came with four couples and made dinner every night and had everything we needed. We had a fabulous time and would come back for sure! We live in south florida so it was a nice change from our beaches. Great getaway not far from home! Tara's Haven was such a good find!

Thanksgiving at Tara's Haven

  • 3 of 5

Great space for 2 families. Total of about 8. Clean. Kitchen well stocked. Toilet troubles. The stairs to the beach were broken. The amenities listed for pool and hot tub did not exist. Really should read optional. Quick response to fix plumbing, pool access denied without a 240.00 charge. Towels were had definitely been used a few times I would use them to wash my car.

Some deck furniture would be nice. Great view & access to the beach. St. Augustine rocks. Some tips for parking or suggestions on how to access the town during busy times would be helpful. Bunnery great for breakfast.

Great layout and location. Deck needs some work.

  • 4 of 5

Very good location close to Vilano Beach Publix, etc. and nice floor plan layout for a family vacation with split bedroom wings. Each bedroom has a ocean view. Downstairs toilet needs new tank valve as it barely functions and is so slow it is useless. Called for repair and got a call back but nobody ever showed up to make the repair so the first floor bathroom was not used. Deck and walkway to beach are very weathered, worn and missing several side boards. Accordingly small children and pets must be watched carefully or they could crawl under and fall off of the deck. A dangerous condition that should be addressed immediately.
