About Linda Granfield
Linda spent her first 15 years in Madrid, Spain. She was living in Hong Kong when the family decided to purchase Ocean Blue as a vacation home. When linda moved to Jacksonville Ocean Blue proved to be too far removed from the kids' schools and kept it as a vacation rental. It then proved to be a wonderful venue for families to host small weddings & receptions. Currently, Ocean Blue hosts primarily family reunions and vacationers as well as "snow birds" in the winter.
Linda Granfield purchased this House in 2010
Why Linda Granfield chose South Ponte Vedra Beach
When visiting Linda's brother (1/2 mile S. of Ocean Blue) the family marveled that there wasn't a single person on the beach as far as the eye could see. The family went in search of a vacation home nearby. When they walked in the front door of Ocean Blue and saw the beach and ocean just beyond the living room they knew they had found their ideal home. The compliments that we get from renters is unparalleled for a "rental home". It is so beautifully outfitted and decorated that it feels like someone's own home.Augustine. The beachfront lawn and the very private beach are ideal for hosting family reunions and their celebrations.
What makes this House unique
Because Ocean Blue is across from the Guana Preserve & Estuary it is extremely private. Public parking is 1 1/2 miles away so it is rare to see sun worshipers except for the occasional neighbor. Homes to the North & South are also rentals which is ideal when the family reunions are large and need additional accommodations,

Dazzling Ocean Vista
Beautiful South Ponte Vedra Beach has been our family's summer vacation destination for over 30 years and Ocean Blue is absolutely our favorite! This year, we had a family reunion Fourth of July event at Ocean Blue which was fantastic. All of our guests loved this venue! We have stayed in numerous houses over the decades and Ocean Blue is by far the best beach house with the most wonderful view. We have spent many sunsets enjoying the deck while relaxing in the luxurious furnishings which include a fun fire pit and pool spa. The delightful panorama combines the swaying sea oats just past the green lawn with the dazzling ocean vista which is the perfect setting for any wedding or party.
Ocean Blue's interior provides everything one would hope for in a pleasing and comfortable home. Linda is a superb hostess. After being greeted by champagne, you will discover a completely equipped kitchen as well as an entire house with all that is needed for a memorable beach experience. We found the second refrigerator in the large laundry room to be especially helpful for our family. There are six TVs and wifi is strong throughout the house.
The large and well-planned house affords many areas of quiet and privacy, especially the grand, extravagant master suite spanning the second floor. The upper balcony and side porch offer superb ocean views and retreats for sunning or relaxing in the shade. We have spent three July vacations at Ocean Blue and hope to return for many more.
Thank you for the wonderful review. You are a lovely family and always treat our home beautifully. All guests should be like you! We look forward to having you back for your fourth Summer in 2020! Linda
Amazing Home and View
This house is absolutely amazing and the view could not be more perfect. We stayed for four nights with our family and didn’t want to leave at all while we were there.
The house is very spacious and has everything you need. The backyard is amazing and has a lot of room to play, hangout, etc. It is like having your own private beach.
Thank you Linda (property owner) for being so helpful and spending time showing us the house when we arrived.
Definitely want to go back!
Couldn't have chosen a better location
We rented this property for the week to spend time with our family. The house doubled as our wedding venue and also where we had our reception. Linda was so helpful and amazing every step of the way. Staying here truly made our wedding week magical. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting anything from a nice beach vacation to a great spot to celebrate. The beach was very private and everything about the house was wonderful. Again can't express enough how helpful and accommodating Linda was every step of the way.
Thank you for the fabulous review! You two were such a delight to "work with". I almost wish it was in another year as you always made my day with your sweet comments throughout! So happy that Ocean Blue was the perfect place to start your new life😊� Thank you for being such wonderful guests & hope to see you back for another family reunion!
As for us, due to permitting, we will no longer book weddings at Ocean Blue. Please do continue to reach out to us for family reunions, small celebrations and vacations!
Beach vacation & wedding (3/30/19)
Ocean Blue is absolutely amazing and Linda is such kinda and wonderful women to work with. Looking for a wedding venue that accommodates a very DIY wedding is hard to come by. But, once we found Ocean Blue, we knew it was the perfect spot for us. Plus, we get to have the ocean in the backyard! What more could you ask for? We checked in a few days before the wedding and spent most of those days with family and friends. Enjoying all the things the home has to offer. The household itself is beautiful and fully equipped with everything you could need. I could go on and on about all the wonderful things this place has to offer but, you should probably check it out for yourself :)
My husband and I could not have asked for a better wedding night and vacation all around. Highly recommend Ocean Blue!
Very Nice Property and Great Owner
We used the house for an annual guys trip and it worked really well for us. The hot tub and backyard set up is excellent. The proximity to the beach cannot be beaten. The house and kitchen are well stocked. Linda was great to work with and very responsive. She even bought a new ladder golf game for us to use. I don't think the door issues that some have mentioned is an issue at all. There are plenty of functional doors. The only minor negatives were the very shelly beach that really made walking barefoot difficult and the road noise from A1A at night is since the speed limit is 55 MPH and the cars are going significantly faster.
Beautiful home with an amazing beach view.
House is very well stocked with pans and serving trays. Easy access to the beach. Breathtaking views if the sunrise and sunsets. Linda is great to work with. Responds quickly to any needs you may have. Missing our stay at Ocean Blue already.
