Overview

St. Augustine Area House Rental Photos and Description

Napping Turtle, 3 Bedrooms, Ocean Front, South Ponte Vedra Beach

Nestled on the beautiful shores of South Ponte Vedra Beach is our big yellow house, Napping Turtle. With large windows, 2 levels of beachfront decks, and all the latest amenities, it's the perfect spot for your most relaxing and enjoyable vacation ever!

At Napping Turtle, nothing stands between you and the blue Atlantic but soft sands and gorgeous natural dunes. Wake to the sounds of sea birds fishing for their breakfast in the surf, and drift off to sleep to the murmur of the waves. The sunrise seems to happen right outside your window here, and marine life from dolphins to manatees can be spotted swimming past. It's a little piece of paradise between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, ideal for a beach vacation but also great for golf, sightseeing, shopping, and fine dining. There's something for everyone on our little strip of the coast!

The family room on the ground offers breathtaking ocean views, soaring ceilings, direct access to the deck, and an HDTV -- not to mention ultra-comfortable couches! The cool tiled floor here feels so good when you come in barefoot from the beach, and the ceiling fan adds a fresh breeze to the air-conditioned comfort. Ah, this is the way to relax!

The dining area is adjacent to the living room, right beside French doors leading out to the deck. Indoors or out, it's a great way to start the day: a cup of coffee, a book or your phone (you have free wireless Internet at Napping Turtle, so you can keep your Facebook status updated!), and the vast horizon in front of you, full of possibilities!

The kitchen offers terrific ocean views too, not to mention state-of-the-art stainless-steel appliances, smooth countertops, and a breakfast bar set with high stools. You're just steps from the oceanfront balcony here, so throw open the French doors as you cook and enjoy the salty breeze!

You'll find the kitchen stocked with all the cookware, utensils, and dishes you could ask for -- your only contribution is groceries! No emergency trips to the store to pick up plastic cups or a can-opener; everything is waiting for you here.

When it's time to retire for the night, everyone will be pleased with their bedroom. Napping Turtle has 3 bedrooms plus a bonus room containing a single bed with a trundle, so there's plenty of space to sleep 10. This arrangement is perfect for 2 families traveling together, or a big group of friends.

The master bedroom overlooks the ocean, with a luxurious queen-sized bed and a TV. A set of French doors leads out onto the balcony, opening the entire room to the glorious outdoors. You're going to love it here!

The second bedroom also contains a queen-sized bed, while the third has 2 doubles. This third bedroom is a great place for the kids to all club in together, with their own TV and balcony access. Give the room over to blanket tunnels and pillow thrones, and the children will love being indoors almost as much as they do the beach!

A second bathroom is convenient to the other bedrooms, and a laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer keeps all those swimsuits and beach towels fresh. We provide all the linens and towels you need for every bed and bath at Napping Turtle, along with plenty of pillows and blankets. Come as you are and prepare to have the time of your life!

A boardwalk leads directly from Napping Turtle over the dunes and onto the warm sands of South Ponte Vedra Beach. You'll feel as though you're on our own private beach as you stroll the sands. This is a great beach for anything from boogie-boarding to sandcastle-building to bocce-ball playing, and the whole group will enjoy it.

Come stay at Napping Turtle very soon. You will love the location, the house, and the beautiful surroundings. Discover beachfront living the laid-back way in South Ponte Vedra Beach!

House needs work

  • 3 of 5

Very disappointed in the condition of the house. LOTS of broken tile much of which is hidden under carpet tiles but can hear them crunch. The fridge is rusted on the front and really looks terrible. A little paint would go a long way. The furniture is old but decent. Old water damage on ceiling was not covered up well. The Garage has old stuff in it and only usable if you want to make the room yourself. Pictures of course dont show these things so just want to be honest. It is pet friendly and has a small area off the back deck for the dog. The deck and the beach view are wonderfull as is the beach itself. We had a great time and will be returning to the area again just in a different home.

Our Stay at the Beach

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this property and being directly on the beach was a fabulous part of our vacation. We spent many hours sitting on the balcony watching the ocean - such a tranquil experience. We played golf, shopped, experienced the history of<br/> the area, and ate...a lot! Everything was in a very short driving time. On the down side - we were never able to access WiFi (3 of us had our laptops), the tiled kitchen floor was broken (but covered with rug remnants) and some of the furniture was outdated,<br/> but overall, the experience was great.

Comfortable, laid-back amenities

  • 5 of 5

The decor suited us so well - very bohemian and relaxed. Some of the tiles in the kitchen are broken, but in place. Towel bars need to be replaced, but everything was in working order otherwise. Very peaceful, so convenient to shopping, site-seeing. Would highly recommend this duplex!

Great Location, but Issues...

  • 3 of 5

Excellent location and spacious and clean rental. However, several issues. First: mice in the unit. Spotted twice running along floor, they got in pantry, ate bananas sitting on kitchen counter, etc. Property manager has unit treated, but on our last day there, we found fresh evidence. Unacceptable. several small issues (no DVDs in unit despite advertised as such, no remote for upstairs TV/satellite, no access to garage space). Great beachfront location, but would not rent this unit again.

The property is located excellent. The beach is nice. Very good restaurant near by. However the condition of the property needs lots of upgrading.
