Car: Recommended

Area: WaterColors is conveniently located between the golf mecca of Ponte Vedra Beach, 15 miles north, and historic St. Augustine, 6 miles south. It is situated on a barrier island with mostly single-family homes, although several excellent restaurants and convenience stores are located within a mile or so. It is an easy drive to either St. Augustine or Ponte Vedra for excellent dining, shopping, activities, and golf.

Golf: We have many public and semi public golf courses within a few minutes drive of the house. The World Golf Village with the King and Bear and the Squire and Slammer is just 15 minutes away. Check out the Royal St. Augustine, a budget friendly course with definite challenges. Play the St. Johns Country Club, South Hampton, or Cimmarone, all located near each other. Inquire about our new golf packages and discounts!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: Hi there! I am Judy Lombana Wren, owner (with my husband Bill) of WaterColors, manager of several other oceanfront properties, retired university professor and mental health therapist, wife, mom, grandmother, and friend! Bill (a retired airline pilot) and I live in Jacksonville, Florida and Maggie Valley, NC. I have been involved with with the ocean, beaches, homes, decorating, and people all my life. WaterColors is our beautiful and spacious oceanfront home where we have large family gatherings and enjoy sharing with others. We hope you will love it too! We bought WaterColors in 1995. At the time, it was a large, somewhat bland home which had some wonderful attributes: an elevator, fantastic ocean views, spacious living area on the main level, plus a game room complete with pool table on the lower floor. Bill and I have signficantly remodeled and updated the house. We ripped out the kitchen and opened it to the living area; you will love the beautiful cabinets and huge granite island. We have expanded the deck, updated two of the three bathrooms, and painted the house inside and out in happy beach colors. We just installed a huge flat screen TV in the living room (look for an article about us in a Best Buy catalog this summer!) For a number of years now, I have been managing other oceanfront homes, as well as my own. My son, David Lombana, has joined me in Wren Beach Rentals, and we now manage 14+ luxury oceanfront properties in South Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beach. We have a huge number of repeat renters and enjoy solid relationships with both owners and renters. We look forward to working with you!

Why Ponte Vedra Beach:
We bought WaterColors in South Ponte Vedra Beach, because we knew it was a great investment. Our sucess with renting our first home, Sandpiper's Nest, convinced us that larger groups are also looking for top quality getaways on a very private beach. WaterColors is perfect for vacationers who want direct oceanfront, great views, spacious living quarters, qualaity furnishings, lots of amenities, and privacy. WaterColors is perched on a high dune, on a 100 wide lot, offering panoramic ocean views. The immediate area consists of single family homes, several great restaurants, a terrific beach club (available as an option to our renters who want a pool!)and miles of wide, sandy, car-free beaches. Our renters come here because they love the privacy and the fact that we are not surrounded by high rise condos, fast food restaurants, bars, hordes of people vying for space on the beach, or cars driving on the sand! However, we are not isolated! WaterColors is just 10 minutes from historic St. Augustine and 15 minutes from posh Ponte Vedra. We think we have the perfect beach location!
