This is a great house, right on the ocean, that has been newly remodeled and renovated. It is a two-story house with four bedrooms (king, king, queen, and twins) and three bathrooms. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are located upstairs; the other bedroom and bath, along with a game room which has a sofa-bed, are located downstairs. The two floors provide a lot of common area space, which can be nice with even the closest of families (i.e. teenagers vs adults). It is perfect for the extended family.
Outside, it's only a few steps to the beach. There are plenty of chairs and chaise lounges, a fenced in courtyard with gas grille, outside showers and covered area for some shade. Just a great beach location!
The full kitchen, living room, and upstairs master bedroom overlook the Atlantic Ocean; and a comfortable second floor deck overlooking the ocean can give guests a breathtaking view of the sunrise over the water. Perfect for sitting in the shade and watching the activities on the beach below.
The house is strategically located midway between prestigious Ponte Vedra and historic St. Augustine, which offers dining, shopping, and recreation for all. The house is bordered on the west by a nature preserve, and only single family, oceanfront homes as neighbors. This makes for a very uncrowded, relaxing, safe beach experience.
Please note that this is a non-smoking house, and does not allow pets. Also, the house may not be used as a venue for weddings, reunions, or other events hosting those not staying at the house. The person responsible for the rental must be at least 25 years old and staying at the house, and the maximum number of guests allowed is ten.
During the peak summer months, June, July, and August we only offer week-long Saturday to Saturday rentals. Also, there may be some other periods during special events where minimum stays or additional rates apply.

Owner purchased this House in 2003
Why Owner chose South Ponte Vedra Beach
Tom grew up in Northeast Florida and resides in Jacksonville. went to beach often while growing up, now as an adult enjoys the area and appreciates the unique opportunities the area provides. The house is far enough away from our Jacksonville home to feel like we've gotten away, but is close enough to escape in the middle of the week even for a night.
What makes this House unique
Peace and Quiet. The house is located between Jacksonville Beach and St. Augustine. It is surrounded by Guana State Park and the closest public beach accesses are almost a mile away. Probably one of the least crowded beaches in Florida. It is a great for those who want to get away from the rat race, but still be close enough that golf courses and good restaurants are a short drive away.

Quiet beach home perfect for a large family!
We had a pretty perfect stay at this home. Four bedrooms plus a pull-out couch we used for the kids. Kitchen was spacious and well-stocked for our family to cook every night on the grill. Sunrises were beautiful through the windows each morning, and the beach was only about 10 steps away. The best part for me was the quiet/private nature of the beach - no battling for space with other beachgoers. We were the only ones out there and could come and go all day.
We ranged in age from 1 year to 70 years old. It was the perfect home for all of us. Steps from the beach, so we could run upstairs for naps or snacks as needed. Every family got just enough privacy while still being together. I'd definitely recommend this home!
Note for the kids: bring water shoes! The beach is filled with beautiful shells. Lots of fun for the kids to collect, but mine had trouble walking on the shell-y sand without their water shoes.
Fantastic spring break vacation
The house is amazing! We had everything that we needed and plenty of space for our family. The views are awesome and we loved being right on the beach! Very relaxing vacation. Tom was great to work with and checked to make sure we had everything that we needed. Would highly recommend this house!
Family Reunion Getaway
Property was perfect for us. Each sibling and spouse had their own private bedroom and with 3 baths it was large group friendly. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to cook -- it was nice for all to sit around the dining room table and talk. Also went to local eateries which were good and grocery shopping was only about 5 minutes away. Views of the ocean were lovely and we enjoyed sitting on the beach which when we were there was more like a private beach as there weren't many others. Chairs were provided and we knew in advance to bring our own sun umbrella. This is a very nice property, well maintained, and clean. Owners are very nice and accessible for advice and information. Overall, a great experience.
Beautiful house. Very clean, modern, and comfortable. Loved the area also.
The House was everything we thought it was and more. Beautiful, comfortable house. The view was amazing. We plan on being back at some point.
Great place to kick back and relax!
We had a great stay at this comfortable and roomy house right on the beach. When we first arrived, the lights were on to welcome us, and we felt right at home. The house had everything we needed plus a few extras--books, puzzles, beach toys and other small items to keep us entertained. We had a few cloudy days with rough seas, and the huge picture windows allowed us to be inside but enjoy the beauty of the ocean. Best of all was being able to run down the steps and be at the water any time we wanted. There were 8 of us--6 adults and 2 small children, but we never felt crowded. Two levels, 4 bedrooms, and 4 televisions allowed everyone to find a quiet space or watch something different on TV, but there was plenty of seating on the upper level for us all to be together. We enjoyed cooking together in the fully equipped kitchen, working puzzles together, and walking the beach at all hours looking for seashells. Tom, the owner, checked in with us to make sure everything was going okay. We had a great time with 3 generations in the house, and will definitely stay here the next time we are in St. Augustine.
Magnificent property with a killer view! Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds and great host!
I would highly recommend this property for any size group.Very close to Historic St Augustine. The house is situated so the views go on forever. You also get beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The owner/host was very accommodating and responds immediately. We would definitely rent here again.
