Private Homes house description

Three stories of lavish Italianate beauty with breathtaking ocean and golf course views await you at Florence by the Sea, our home across the street from the beach in Ocean Hammock. With every luxury from a pool to an elevator, it's a dream vacation home.

Boasting more than 5,000 square feet, Florence by the Sea is ideal for large groups, family reunions, or just a big family ready to spread out and get comfortable. The elevator makes it accessible for everyone, so it's a good choice for a multi-generational vacation. Ocean Hammock Resort is a family friendly, gated beach community. The world-renowned Ocean Hammock Golf Course winds through the neighborhood, affording spectacular views. There's something for everyone here!

Your favorite part of Florence by the Sea is probably going to be the giant atrium-ceiling lanai, located off the rear of the house for even greater privacy. Enclosed in this vast space is a lovely swimming pool with an adjacent Jacuzzi to massage those golf-sore muscles! There's also a full summer kitchen, with a state-of-the-art grill and plenty of room for seating and poolside play. Just wait until you find yourself floating in the pool, gazing up at the vast blue Florida sky with a cold drink close at hand! Stress and everyday cares just melt away here!

Step inside from the lanai and you find yourself in our family room, one of two living areas designed for a crowd. Here you'll find a huge HDTV, wet bar, ultra-comfortable sofas and chairs, stereo system with Surround Sound (this is available throughout the house), cool tile floors, and plantation shutters on the many windows. After a long day at the beach, the family room is like an oasis! Make yourself a drink, put up your feet, and enjoy the game or your favorite show.

The second big living area is upstairs. Our great room is filled with windows and surrounded by balconies, and boasts a huge fireplace in addition to another entertainment center with HDTV and all the trimmings. And if you need more space, Florence by the Sea has a spacious office!

One of the best features of Florence by the Sea is the kitchen, which is adjacent to the great room. Beyond the long granite countertop and breakfast bar, you'll find Sub Zero appliances, a central island, custom cabinetry, and all manner of appliances and equipment. You can prepare a feast for 20 in here without going short a single fork! The dining room awaits formal meals, while a sun-filled breakfast nook does everyday duty as a lovely place to sip that first cup of coffee, update your Facebook status (you have free wireless Internet at Florence by the Sea), and plan another perfect Palm Coast day.

Even more important than the kitchen are the bedrooms, and you will simply love the arrangements here at Florence by the Sea. There are 6 bedrooms, 3 with en suite bathrooms, including a 1st-floor room right off the lanai that is great for those with accessibility issues (10 steps to the pool for water therapy!).

The master suite includes a large living area with a couch and chairs, a king-size bed, a long bank of windows, and a balcony with panoramic views. The en suite bathroom offers his-and-her vanities, a walk-in shower, and a deep tub. This is an area made for late nights and long mornings! It is a haven, and only the promise of another great day in the pool, on the course, or at the beach will lure you from it!

The 2nd bedroom contains a king bed, with an en suite bathroom including a walk-in shower, while the 3rd, 5th & 6th bedrooms have queen beds. The 4th bedroom contains a bunk bed with two doubles (sleeps up to 4 kids). There are also 2 brand new queen sleeper sofa beds. All are spacious and pleasant, with all linens provided. Oh -- did we mention the full-size laundry room in this house?! And, 2 garages for extra parking or storage.

With handsome landscape and even a private walkway almost outside the front door to lead you down to the beach, Florence by the Sea simply has it all.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now I am managing other people's properties in St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 500+ vacation rentals. We booked over 10,000 rentals and received over 3,000 guest reviews in 2011. You can find some of these by going to search engines and typing in Steve Milo or 'Vacation Rental Pros' . Thank you!

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  And the best part of it all is the location. You're within a short car ride of historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in America filled with pedestrian walkways with shops, cafes and first class restaurants. We are also close to Daytona Beach and the Daytona speedway and museum. We are also only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Orlando and Disney World/Universal/Sea World as well as 1 1/2 hour to the Kennedy Space Center. Our rental is also a short car ride to Ponte Vedra Beach and PGA golf Course and TPC as well as Jacksonville with the brand new St John's Town Center (with a Costco), Avenue Mall and River Front Arcade. There is also a minor league baseball team and a professional football team and stadium.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The beach is wide and unspoiled here by large crowds. Kids will spend hours exploring, and their parents and grandparents will love discovering new areas to relax and reconnect If you're ready for uncrowded beaches, balmy weather, clear skies, and Florida's natural wildlife, come visit us today!
