About the property

5 Bedrooms & 4 1/2 Baths Sleeps 14. Master Suite w/deck & Fantastic Ocean Views!

Welcome to Ocean Blue, a stunning two story beachfront vacation home/wedding venue located on the Atlantic Ocean in South Ponte Vedra Beach!

For WEDDINGS & SPECIAL EVENTS: please see below for link on availability and pricing.

For VACATION RENTALS Ocean Blue generally rents by the week. Exceptions are during weeks when planned events leave open dates between rentals. The 3 day minimum listed on HomeAway is for Weddings and Special Events only. Please see below for details.

This wonderful home boasts a huge 2nd floor Master Suite and deck with fabulous ocean views. Walls of glass on the ocean side line the Master, the living/kitchen/dining area as well as the den. The spacious ground floor deck and the large flat yard with the ocean backdrop are ideal for a family game of soccer/frisbee/badminton as well as for weddings of up to 100 guests. There is a large, fully stocked kitchen, indoor as well as outdoor dining for 14, loads of board games, books, beach toys, beach chairs & umbrellas, towels, a ping pong table, a fire pit and a hot tub! The Master bedroom suite encompasses the entire second floor while 3 bedrooms with private baths are on the ground floor. The den with a queen sleeper sofa & twin bed opens right out to the deck & the beach beyond. All ground floor bedrooms and bathrooms are wheelchair accessible.

Ocean Blue is perfect for weddings, family reunions & special events. We are often told that the home (particularly the living/dining/kitchen area) is substantially larger than it appears in the photos and is stocked with virtually everything one could envision to ensure a wonderful stay!

Ocean Blue is located on a particularly desirable section of Ponte Vedra Beach given that across A1A is the Guana River State Park, which includes a large tidal estuary and a bird and wildlife preserve. Such a vast game preserve produces huge numbers of pelicans, ospreys, egrets, cranes, and wood-storks which fly over the house and feed in the ocean behind the house and the marsh in front of it. The beach is incredibly private given that public parking is 1 1/2 miles away. Excellent restaurants are only minutes away!

For VACATION RENTALS please email or call the owner, Linda Granfield at 904-616-2779, prior to placing a credit card to request a booking.


RATES DISPLAYED BY HOMEAWAY/VRBO RELATE EXCLUSIVELY TO STANDARD VACATION RENTALS WITH A MAXIMUM OF 14 OVERNIGHT GUESTS. Please click on the following link on WeddingWire for wedding rates and packages and do not place a credit card deposit unless there has been prior communication with the owner and the quote has been edited to reflect the wedding or event.


FYI: Many local wedding planners have recommended and arranged weddings at Ocean Blue. While a "wedding planner" is not included in the rate we are happy to make recommendations based on the experiences of our previous brides. Also, multiple tent companies are familiar with the dimensions of Ocean Blue's waterfront lawn and can guide you according to the number of guests.

Please note that, for your protection as well as the property's, there is an outdoor home security system in place.

About Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC - Linda M Granfield

Ocean Blue has received 5 star VRBO/HomeAway ratings and rave guests' reviews for over five years. View past guests' reviews under "About Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC" and scroll down to "Guest book comments from the owner".

Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC - Linda M Granfield purchased this house in 2010

Why Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC - Linda M Granfield chose South Ponte Vedra Beach

Unlike most oceanfront vacation homes in Ponte Vedra or St. Augustine, the main living area at Ocean Blue is located on the ground level. You walk through the front door and are greeted with stunning ocean views from four sets of French doors that lead out to the terrace & yard and a fabulous & serene beach just a few steps beyond! With all but one bedroom being downstairs, you don't have stairs to climb to bring in luggage and groceries! The living - dining - kitchen area is extremely spacious and open (guests have indicated that it is much larger than it appears in pictures). Comfortable but elegant furnishings, a 55" LCD TV, dining for 14 or more (both inside and outside), and the wonderful deck beyond will coax you into relaxation! Adjoining the living room is a cozy den, with ocean views, large television and queen sofa sleeper.

Our guest book at Ocean Blue is full of renters' comments about the gorgeous house, the many amenities, games, toys, books, ping pong table, hot tub, outdoor fire pit and the kids who always find loads of shark teeth!

Ocean Blue is also home to multiple weddings and events. Please view "rental rates" for applicable wedding and event fees.

What makes this house unique

We love the classy details about this house. The dark oak wood floors and the Mahogany furniture bring a little bit of home to what would otherwise be a typical beach house. The Master Bedroom Suite on the second floor is second to none. The stunning views from the King bed and from the double settee add to a very romantic setting for the special couple as they relax side by side with a glass of champagne looking out at the awe-inspiring ocean views.

Georgeous Beach getaway with Ocean in backyard

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our week stay at the beach house. Linda was great, and the home had georgeous views. It's one of the only homes I've seen on the beach with a true back yard as well as lots of beach space. One of a kind!

Fabulous venue for our 90 person Wedding!

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this beautiful home! Linda is wonderful and makes sure everything you need is on site! The inside of the home is wonderful and the upstairs bedroom has breathtaking views! I got ready upstairs with some pictures.

We had our wedding here on the beach with the reception in the backyard. There is plenty of beach left to set up chairs and you are so close to the beach. We were able to have a stage with band, dance floor, two bars, tables for sitting and high boys. There was plenty of room for everything. You have to get a tent and we rented one that didn’t cover the entire area but we were blessed with good weather!

All of my guests couldn’t stop talking about the venue and how this was the best wedding they have ever been to! Best day of our life! Highly recommend for a more laid back wedding where you aren’t rushed out of the venue and pay like crazy for all the required vendors and food.

Rented items: All About Events

Band: Bread and Butter

Valet: A1A Valet (this is a must - reasonable price and made it so conv. for guests).

Bartenders and Caterer: personal friends

Alcohol: Wine from Total Wine because you can take it back. We bought our liquor on base but Costco had reasonable price. Winn Dixie for all mixers.

Flowers: Costco and family arranged (I don’t reccomend Costco because we had an issue with delivery - cancelled order and then they all showed up. So we have TONS of flowers) We found a wholesale flower place for Lillies and all greenery.

All and All - There is not another amazing venue like this in Jax PVB or even St. Aug. DO IT :)

Best Wedding Venue EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently got married on Oct. 21, 2017 at the beautiful Ocean Blue. I started looking for the perfect venue about 18m before my wedding date. I originally was looking into having my Ceremony & Reception at Serenata Beach Club & then we had a grand idea to look into renting a private ocean front home. I reviewed pretty much every rental home on A1A & Ocean Blue was by far the best. The home is gorgeous inside & out, the large oceanfront backyard is absolutely perfect for a wedding or any other event. We had our Ceremony in the sand just steps from the house & our Reception in the backyard.

Linda was amazing & went above & beyond to answer any questions I had prior to booking, after booking, & all throughout the next year + leading to my big day. Since we live in town Linda had no problem with us coming by the house whenever we needed to help us have a hands on approach to the entire planning process. Linda was literally just an email, text message or phone call away from beginning-to-end & then some. (After Hurricane Matthew, I received a warming curtesy email letting me know the house thankfully survived the storm).

Unlike other rental properties we were able to rent from Fri to Fri to get settled the day before. When we arrived, we were welcomed by Linda with open arms and in the entryway she had a table set with champagne glasses & a chilled bottle of Veuve Cliquot (my fav)

Everything about our entire stay was perfect including my wedding. The house itself is huge with plenty of room for a large group. I had 52 guests in attendance plus all my vendors & staff & it was never overcrowded. The interior decor throughout is gorgeous. All of the bedrooms are not only spacious but also tastefully decorated with each room having it’s own unique beach theme..& the beds are so comfortable it was hard to get out of them most mornings. The entire upstairs is a massive master suite with a huge oceanfront private balcony that is the length of the entire house. It was the perfect place for all the girls to get ready & it’s elegant decor was a beautiful backdrop for my bridal photos.

I can’t rant & rave enough about the house & most importantly the level of service provided by Linda every step of the way. Ocean Blue is so much more than just a business for her & the personal touch she gives speaks for itself. I HIGHLY recommend Ocean Blue for any event! There aren’t enough thank you’s I can give for making my wedding more than a dream come true!!!

We love Ocean Blue! Beautiful, spacious, well equipped, very clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated Thanksgiving week with our family at Ocean Blue. Our daughters and son in laws and grandchildren loved the house and spacious backyard and beach. The house is well appointed with plenty of room for our whole family. The owner, Linda, could not be more hospitable and lovely. This was our third year in a row at Ocean Blue and we are all looking forward to returning next year. Our grandchildren talk about it all year. This year as we all returned to work and school, our granddaughter at school was asked to draw a picture of her favorite part of Thanksgiving vacation, she drew Ocean Blue. We all agree, it is the best! Highly recommended!

Our perfect family beach reunion spot!

  • 5 of 5

We keep returning year after year. Lots of room for our adult kids and grandkids. Love that we just walk out to the beach. One of the rare rentals that actually has enough comfortable seating for the number of folks it sleeps.

Linda has it so well stocked: kitchen, bedrooms, patio, and even beach towels and supplies. She's thought of everything! And so great to work with! All we bring is our food and drink. So easy.

A quiet spot but still an easy drive into St. Augustine attractions. Great restaurants and a big grocery store nearby. Our entire crew can't wait to return!
