ArtSea Beach COTTAGE:
Great ocean views from the Large Living Room / Master Bedroom, the Kitchen and you can even see the ocean from the Dining Room.

This Very Fun Oceanfront Beach Cottage that is LOADED with all the extras: ALL the Upgraded TV Channels, 3 Large Screen TV's, Fantastic Beach views, Jacuzzi Tub in Master, this one has everything you want for a vacation. All of this AND an Artist' 1st Class Touch!

This home is PERFECT for a Long weekend romantic getaway, a honeymoon, two couples or even small family for beach vacation of a lifetime!
So, why name this cottage ArtSea? As soon as you walk in the door, you will know artist have lived here! So much detail, you simply must see it for yourself! Not only is it very artsy or, should I have said 'ArtSea'. From the furnishings and the decor to the best you can have cable service with every movie and sports channels available to go with the nice flat screen TV's in both bedrooms and of course the Living Room.

Speaking of the Living Room, checkout the sofa, the beautiful heart of pine wood floors, several French doors, huge flat screen TV with DVR. Speaking of DVR, email or call ahead and we will record your favorite shows, so you don't miss anything while you are traveling.

You MUST check out the Owner's Bathroom! First there is the LARGE Jacuzzi with JETS, with room for two, of course AND a HUGE shower that features real, River Rock flooring, lots of glass block, tile floors and so much more.
The owner's retreat is refurbished with a new King Sized Bed, high count sheets and great views. As soon as your eyes open in the morning; there it is, the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

The Kitchen is special as well, with the tile counter tops and back splash, tile floors, beach views and even built-in spice racks and other amenities. You arrive a cook and depart a chef.
Not 'just' WIFI, but Comcast's new modem with build-in router with the super-fast internet speed!

The location is perfect! Drive about 10 minutes south and you can visit the 'Oldest City in the United States' and the famous, Castillo de San Marcos, the locals just call it, 'The Old Fort'. You will find lots of fantastic restaurants in St. Augustine. Oh, by the way, there are 3 restaurants within 5 minutes of the beach house, I recommend TWO of the THREE.

If you drive about 15 minutes north, you can visit Ponte Vedra, here are fantastic restaurants, including the famous upscale, Ruth's Chris Steak House and others.

ALL of Vacation Quest's Properties have washers / dryers and All linens are supplied… just bring a tooth brush and toiletries and a change of clothes. You get a nice starter package of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry, hand, body, dish soap, and dishwasher tabs, garbage bags and other supplies.
The best part is what you get to take with you and that is a lifetime of great family memories! When the kids are grown and have children of their own and tell the great stories of the time they stayed at the ArtSea Beach Cottage! Isn't that what life should be all about?

NOTE: IF less than 5 nights are available, call and ask about the exception to the 5 night rule!

St. Augustine is the oldest city in the U.S. about a 12 minute drive. the main feautre is the national monument, 'Castillo do San Marco'. The locals just call it, 'The Old Fort'. Plenty of history, shopping and restaurants. If you head north, the upscale Ponte Vedra with upscale restaurants, shopping and the most famous 17th Green in professional golf, the TPC at Sawgrass.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: I am the property manager, the owner is a wonderful and talented person, her and her husband made this the very special home that it is today. As for me, I am a native of the Jacksonville Beaches / Ponte Vedra Beach with family dating back to the 1600's in Northeast Florida. In my teenage years I was a lifeguard and a member of the American Red Cross Volunteer Life Saving Corp, celebrating the 100th Anniversary in 2012. My parents owned a Hotel in Jacksonville Beach also in my teen years, I got to live on the ocean then and a few years later at the life guard station. I LOVED, and still do the beach AND the hospitality business! After 18 years as an executive in the seafood business (the ocean again), I became a Realtor, owned and managed a RE/MAX Office, then an opportunity to get back to my first love, the hospitality business this time as a manager of vacation rental homes. It is so much more fun than the traditional real estate business.

Why South Ponte Vedra Beach:
This home has everything that you need for a fun vacation, ALL bedrooms and the living room have LARGE Flat Screen TV's with Premium Comcast Cable and HIGH Speed Internet, with Comcast's Super-fast new model with built in WIFI If you must have a bedroom with Great ocean views and a huge bath, this one IS FOR YOU. The entire common living areas have great ocean views and a fantastic deck with lots of space both in and out of the sun.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has so many artistic details that are too many to notice at first. You will continue to discover new details as your stay continues. Of course the amazing views, the ocean and beach is like a new painting that constantly changes. Just have a seat in the living room or the deck, and just take it all in at a price that is kind your the wallet. The perfect getaway with friends or a private romantic retreat. It is all here at ArtSea Oceanfront Beach Cottage. Why the name? As soon as you walk in the door, you WILL understand. As soon as we saw it; right then, at that moment everyone knew this would be the 'The ArtSea Beach Cottage'
