South Ponte Vedra Beach house description

You know you're in paradise when you stay in this beautiful new luxury 2-story oceanfront beach home with 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and 2 half baths. On the upper level you'll find 2 master suites overlooking the Atlantic Ocean where you'll awaken to brilliant sunrises. Each suite has a king-size bed, large bay window, walk-in closet, attractive bathroom with a magnificent window view of the majestic Guana State Park where you can witness incredible sunsets. Each master bath also has a walk-in shower. Between the master suites is a spacious living room with bathroom and captivating ocean view. This room has a 42' TV, fireplace, a half-bath, and a lovely state-of-the-art open kitchen with granite counter tops and bar area with bar stools for 4. If you wish, you may open glass French doors from the living room or either master suite to walk out to a deep wood deck that extends the entire length of the house. Several feet of the deck is covered; however, several feet are also uncovered.


On the first floor you'll find two nice bedrooms located on the south end of the house. One bedroom has an amazing ocean view and offers a nice queen-size bed. Again, you may walk out of glass doors onto a grand deck that extends the length of the home. This room has a pocket door that opens to a full size Jack-and-Jill bath that adjoins to a second bedroom offering two single beds and a fantastic window view of the Guana. If you just want to sit back, relax, and perhaps read, there is a spacious family room facing the ocean with a comfortable sofa and chair available. You'll also find a television and a table with chairs for playing games, cards, jigsaw puzzles, etc. Beach fun brings wet and salty clothes and you'll find a sizable laundry room with a superior washer and dryer on the lower level.

Outside on the lower deck is a gas grill, patio furniture and an attractive half-bath for your convenience. Next to the half-bath you'll find a roomy closet for any beach toys or floats you wish to store. There is a nice walk-over that extends over the dunes to the beach, and should you wish to walk in the evenings, the walk-over provides gentle landscape lighting. Also for your convenience, there is an outside shower that offers both hot and cold water temperatures to rinse off any beach sand and salty ocean water. Come visit, relax and enjoy; it may be your first of many happy returns!

                            I had never rented a beach house from a complete stranger and I was pretty skeptical. I looked over the pictures, other reviews, and spoke with Ricky (the owner/manager of the property) many times before we decided that this house would work out well for me, my husband, another couple and friends. I was most excited about the 2 identical master bedrooms because we didn't want to "fight" over the best room! Ricky called a few times before the trip just to make sure we didn't have any questions and to go over the logistics of check-in, etc. When we got to the house my jaw dropped! The house was even more beautiful than the pictures showed! It was beautifully decorated, but it was still VERY comfortable and it definitely felt like our home away from home for the week! We had all of our favorite TV channels, internet, but most importantly a magnificent view of the ocean, beach access within steps, and the most luxurious rooms and bathrooms! There was not anything to do within walking distance, but we loved that because we had the beach completely to ourselves! I am an early riser, so I loved getting up and watching the sun rise on the deck with a cup of coffee and a great book! We went out to great restaurants in St. Augustine and Vilano Beach every night, and Ricky had great recommendations! The only place that I wouldn't recommend was the Harbor View Cafe (a breakfast place in downtown St. Augustine). The staff was pretty rude and there weren't any tables for parties of 5 or more. They basically told us to leave because we had 5 people. It was fine though because we found another great breakfast place called the Bunnery! Ricky provided everything we could have needed and more! There was a great closet downstairs full of beach toys, games, and everything you could have ever needed on the beach! The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and everything we needed to cook breakfast and lunch! There is a great new Publix about 5-10 minutes from the property where we stocked up on groceries for the week! I can't think of anything that we would have changed! We are very excited to plan our trip here for next year and make it a tradition!

                            After much research and property review, the Best Stay on A!A was selected as the venue for a very special occasion. This was to be the site of a week's grand celebration of a significant birthday year for 8 high school girl friends. All but one flew from New England into Jacksonville which was a convenient 45 minutes drive to the beach. The Best Stay on A!A was everything we had hoped. Owner Ricky was on site to greet us and she graciously took time to acquaint us to the property. The home was immaculate and fully equipped with every convenience and feature imaginable. The bed and bath accommodations totally met the needs of the group....not an easy feat for 8 women! The spacious upper level kitchen, living/dining area served as the focal point for our indoor socializing at the end of a glorious day at the beach. And what a beach it was! The Atlantic Ocean is the front yard of the Best Stay on A1A. The views of the beach and ocean from both the interior of the home and along the full-length deck of the upper floor were breathtaking. Stairs providing direct beach access were simply an extension of the house itself. Outdoor equipment included beach chairs, towels, boogey boards, umbrellas and all kinds of beach toys for our use. The surf was outstanding yet the beach gradual enough for both the young and not-so-young bathers. The sand was perfect for miles of walking either north or south of the property. Although there are numerous restaurants in the surrounding area of St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra, our group chose to put the new gas grill to use and enjoy dinner with a view and glass of wine most evenings. Other conveniences of the home were the 2-car garage, modern laundry facilities, outside bath, hot and cold outside shower, and the list goes on. Our hosts were quick to respond to a couple of questions we had over the course of the week and could not have done more in making this a memorable experience for us all. We hope to return to the Best Stay on A1A again and highly recommend this lovely property to friends and/or family looking for a wonderful vacation.

                            What a fantastic week we had in your wonderful house! Lots of sun, great food and family... Couldn't ask for anything else. We've stayed in many VRBO houses over the years and your house certainly has the corrent name. It is truly the best house we've ever stayed in - beautifully decorated, very well equipped and what a view!! We felt we were staying in a friends home - instead of a rental house. We certainly look forward to returning soon~~ Thanks for your hospitality

                            We had the most wonderful vacation at this incredible property. This comfortable home feels like the beautifully appointed, well-designed beach house that we all wish we owned! The owners were all delightful and easy to contact, and made us feel so welcome after arriving many hours later than expected after a difficult day of travel. We met friends on this vacation and have already pledged to meet here again next year.

                            After a critical search looking for the best combo of island vibe with nearby amenities we decided on "Best Stay on A1A". We spent 5 weeks in May/June 2010 and came back for more for the month of November 2010. The other reviews and description do an accurate job describing the house and amenities and the fact we re-booked so soon attest to the fact we loved the place. The owners are friendly and attentive and with their help we soon felt like locals.We had many guests during our stay and the house handles this well. From young children to seniors, there was a fit for all. The location across the street from the GTM Research Reserve provided unexpected privacy along with hiking trails for the nature lover. Besides the beaching, boating, fishing and golf availability, St. Augustine is truly a special city in the US and a treat to explore. We are already making plans to return.

                            We stayed the month of October with a number of people staying and visiting over that period. Everyone loved the location, the house design and the decor. It is decorated and furnished like one would if they lived there, very comfortable, classy and fun. It is fully outfitted for a long stay and fun at the beach. We all highly recommend this house. Many of our friends that visited want to rent it in the future, as we shall.

                            This is a beautiful house.You have great views from the living room as well as the bedrooms.We were able to watch the dolphins in the water in front of the house from the porch.Even though it rained a couple of days there was plenty of things to do. St Augustine and Jacksonville were a short drive away.The house was furnished with everything you needed from cooking to a day on the beach. The owners were very friendly and willing to get what ever we needed.

                            This house is amazing!! I searched long and hard for a perfect beach house for my whole family to stay. This house was perfect and the owners were a pleasure. The two master bedrooms are a great feature and a third bedroom also has an ocean view. Nobody was left out or staying in a bad room. It is almost a year later and my family is still talking about how much we enjoyed the trip and we want to go back soon!

                            We have rented this property three times in the last year. The house is beautiful, clean, nice good quality furniture and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen has everything you could ask for and more. It is my favorite part of the house. There is nothing you need to bring from home even the cookware is NICE. The location is private yet minutes from shopping and restaurants we have two teenager girls and they love to come for beach and shopping. The owners are very accommodating they live local and are a phone call away. We have rented many disappointing properties over the years that had nice pictures on the site. You will not be disappointed here and will find yourself like us coming back for repeat stays!
