About the property

Tranquil blues and island hues welcome you when you arrive at Sand Dance. Combining the comfortable atmosphere of home with the luxury of a beach getaway, Sand Dance is the perfect place to relax on your vacation. Located in South Ponte Vedra Beach, approximately 12 miles north of downtown St. Augustine, Sand Dance is close enough to hustle and bustle of city life with the advantage of being on a peaceful beach.

Designed for groups of 6 to 10 people, this house is comfortable, casual, and perfectly beachy. Sand Dance is a 3 story house. The main living area is on the 2nd floor. Here, you will find a bright, open living/dining area, along with the kitchen and a separate family room. The kitchen is fully stocked with all utensils, pots, pans, etc. The living area, dining room, and kitchen all have wonderful views of the beach and ocean. The living area has a welcoming sitting area, perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, or gathering for family time in the evening. The family room and living area are separated by a decorative fireplace. The family room has a large TV mounted on the mantle, and comfortable seating for watching your favorite shows.

There are two bedrooms on the main level. One bedroom is on the ocean side of the house and has a comfy queen bed. The other bedroom has two twin beds. These bedrooms share a full bathroom. Both bedrooms have TVs. Upstairs, you'll find the master suite. The master has a king bed, private balcony, full bathroom with a shower and separate soaking tub. There is an expansive oceanfront deck on the 2nd level. The deck has plenty of seating, an picnic table, and room for lying in the sun. The deck leads downstairs to another deck, grilling area, and our private beach access.

The first floor features a 2 bedroom, 1 bath suite. Both bedrooms have queen beds. Here, you will find a living area with a large sectional sofa, flat screen tv, and another full kitchen! From this level, there is access to the lower deck, grilling area, and the private beach access. If you have 6 or fewer guests coming, the house can be rented at a lower rate, excluding the downstairs suite. There is a two-car garage, and driveway parking for two more vehicles.

Just 15 minutes north of historic St. Augustine, Sand Dance is located in a quiet stretch of A1A, and right on the beach. Guests can enjoy views of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Guana Preserve to the west, and yet be within easy driving distance to restaurants, golf, shopping, or other attractions.

Don't delay! Your next vacation destination is waiting for you at Sand Dance!

Happy Homecoming to our sailor

  • 5 of 5

Sand Dance was perfect for 5 different families to celebrate the homecoming of our sailor. Plenty of space for all to spread out yet come together for meals & games. Grandparents were able to get away from noisy kids with their own space on the first floor. Sand Dance was clean & we'll stocked. The view of the Atlantic was spectacular! Working with David & Daphne was truly a pleasure & we will definitely be planning a return visit.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Great house - comfortable and new furnishings. Great living room with ocean view. Loved the upper deck for sun and shade and the lower patio for cool shade. David Lombana was immediately available when we called about a slow drain and popped right over to fix it. Highly recommend this property!

We stayed in sand dance for the week from Father's Day 2017 & my husbands 40th bday!! Home was perfect for us! We rented the top half only but that was more than enough room for the 4 of us! Beach house had everything we needed to cook, have family time, relax, or just play on the beach! Stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean & sunrises were amazing! Home was clean & well maintained! Furnishings, appliances, etc.. were updated & decorated beautifully! Beach was very quiet, clean, & beautiful! Location was perfect & enjoyed the surrounding areas like St. Augustine, & drive to Daytona & Cape Canaveral was quick & easy! Not far from Jacksonville & many other places! Shopping, restaurants, attractions, & area people were great, & Orlando is just a quick drive! We loved it so much we are renting the top & bottom of home again & already booked to return for Christmas! David (Wren Rentals) & everyone were wonderful & they were there if we needed anything! Great communication & customer service! Cannot say enough as too how much we enjoyed this home! Super excited to return in December! Would definitely recommend this beachfront home again & again!

Good rental!

  • 4 of 5

Sand Dance was a great property for our large group - we used both upper and lower levels. The house and beach area are very nice. Aside from some poor water pressure and shower drainage, the house is in very good condition. We really enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Sand Dance. The house is very good for larger groups, as there are two full kitchens and two separate living rooms. We will take a look at the water pressure situation immediately.

We rented "Sand Dance" for a family getaway and will definitely be back. This home can be rented as a 5/3 or a 3/2 and since we had 10 people, we rented the entire house. It was absolutely perfect for our group. The downstairs 2/1 area was quite and gave a few of the couples some privacy and a good place to get away from the chatty guests upstairs. There is a full kitchen downstairs also so we were able to stock snacks and drinks in both kitchens. We even made a full dinner for the group and it was nice to have two ovens to use for baked lasagna and homemade cakes. Best of all, having the downstairs area provided accessibility for the grandparents so they were able to enter and enjoy the home without climbing stairs. There is a nice deck with a picnic table and two outdoor showers on the first level. Best of all there is a private boardwalk from the first level with only six steps to get down to a nice wide beach so everyone had the ability to enjoy the beach as well. The main level of the home is the second floor and has a beautiful open fireplace between two large sitting areas. The back of the home has large windows offering a spectacular view of the ocean. Since it was a little chilly, we enjoyed sitting in this area to watch the sunrise and the full moon rise over the ocean while we were there. You can even look out the front windows and catch an unobstructed view of the sunset as well since there are no homes across A1A, only the Guana River State Preserve and inter-coastal. The main level has a large kitchen and dining area with bar stools on the open counter and a large table perfect for family dinners. There is also a very nice deck off the main level with some built in benches and another picnic table to enjoy the outdoors. Finally the third level has a spectacular master bedroom and bath. The large king bed faces glass doors that open to a private deck, so you can just open the curtains and watch the sunrise from bed. Privacy is not an issue since only the beach and ocean are in front of you, and while we were there we rarely saw another person on the beach. The master bath is a site to see also, with a beautiful shower, and a separate claw foot bathtub you can soak in while you take in the ocean scenery. We were fortunate to have unseasonably warm temperatures during the day, so we enjoyed the outdoors all day long. Even if the weather had not been amazing, we still would have enjoyed this home because it was big, bright and beautiful.
