South Ponte Vedra Beach house description
Imagine spending your upcoming vacation or family get-together in a fabulous, newer, oceanfront, single family home with every possible amenity! Now is your perfect opportunity; SEAWATCH is ready for your visit.
With four bedrooms plus a study and four and a half baths, SEAWATCH will sleep up to ten (10) guests in total comfort, plus a baby in crib. The house is designed for the vacationer who wants the best of everything, and you will find it here! The large gourmet kitchen, spacious living area, quality furnishings, elevator, enormous covered and open decks, and private dune walkover insure that you and your family will enjoy all the comforts of home... and maybe more!
SEAWATCH is situated on three levels. On the ground floor is a double garage, mud room, and a fenced back yard. Stairs or the elevator will take you to the main floor, which is on the second level.
On the main floor is the primary living space, with an open living-dining-kitchen area, as well as two master suites with queen beds, private baths, and walk-in closets. Both bedrooms open to the large covered porch which runs the length of the house. Also on the main level are a large laundry room, powder room, and computer alcove with fax/printer and wireless high speed Internet connection! Bring your laptop!
On the top level are two additional bedrooms (one with a king bed and one with a queen) which share a large bath with separate vanities. A cozy den with queen sleeper, private bath, kitchenette, and another laundry complete this level. All rooms overlook the ocean with panoramic views.
The main level covered deck offers plenty of space for cooking, eating, and relaxing. Adirondack chairs and loungers are perfect for reading or snoozing in the shade, to the sounds of the ocean. Two dining tables with seating for eight (8) provide a perfect spot for those grilled steaks or fresh seafood! From the second level deck, you reach the beach via a private 'dune walkover' which is gated and perfectly safe for little ones. An outdoor enclosed shower with hot and cold water, as well as easy access to the powder room insures that you don't have to bring the beach inside!
Outdoor stairs join the main level deck with the top level, allowing early risers sleeping there to grab a cup of coffee from the kitchenette and head to the beach to watch the sunrise... all without disturbing those late sleepers on the second level! Also on the third level is a great uncovered deck, opening off the two bedrooms. This is a delightful spot to take advantage of the panoramic views!

Great beach home with all the extras.
Great beach home with all the extras.
This was the perfect place for our family vacation. Ten of us ranged in age from one to 88. Everyone had the best time. The home is elegant but very comfortable with plenty of space. We felt right at home and never crowded. The property was in excellent shape, clean and well equipped. A boardwalk through the dunes links the house to the most beautiful deserted beach where we spent our days. Judy, our rental agent, couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. She went out of her way to make sure we were well taken care of. Be sure to check out the Serenata Beach Club about ten miles down the road. Our family loved the pools, sauna, and restaurant, and went there everyday. We look forward to returning to Seawatch next summer for another family get together. We're already counting the days.

Top-notch rental property with accurate description and detail-oriented property manager. Oceanfront activities from the house include surf-fishing and paddle-boarding. Close to Vilano Beach where pontoon boat rentals are an excellent way to enjoy the intracoastal waterway and St. Augustine. Pet-friendly home - we plan to repeat our experience next year!

Manager response: Of course we are delighted that these nice folks enjoyed their stay and loved the house as well as all the fun activities near-by. We think you will be as pleased as they were, and I can assure you that we go out of our way to make sure our renters have a VERY positive experience!
The house was beautiful and we enjoyed our stay so much.... We would rent again... I would like to give a suggestion... The bushes on the side of the house are overgrown and it was very dangerous to pull out each time on A1A... The traffic already is going at a very fast speed... For the safety of the next renters it would be great if you could cut them back... also when you are coming to the house it is hard to see the driveway until you are right on top of it or passed it... Thank you...

Manager response: We are glad that you informed us of the overgrown bushes and can assure you that if you had let us know when you arrived at the house instead of after you left, we would have had them cut back right away. They will be trimmed back today! We realize that outdoor lighting is a problem during "turtle season" when no pole lights are allowed to shine on the beach. However, Seawatch does have numerous outdoor lights on the front of the house, and we do encourage our renters to leave them on when out at night, especially between May and October, turtle season. In any case, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay and loved our beautiful home.
This property is beautiful and very clean! There was a lot of room for all 8 of us. On a personal note,being in a wheelchair, this property is not very wheelchair friendly. I was unable to get on or off either deck by myself as they are a step lower than the house floors and they are no ramps. Everyone else in our party loved the location, and I thought it was beautiful, it just was not handicap friendly. Over 300 sharks teeth were found on the beach and the sunrises and sunsets. Some of us went out to eat at O C White's and it was phenomenal! Other than that, we did all of our cooking in the large, beautiful kitchen or on the grill.

Great Reunion in a Great House!
Great Reunion in a Great House!
Our best friends, a family of 6, moved to Florida a year ago and this was our first chance to spend time with them. The beach house is very well laid out so that no one felt cramped and there was plenty of room for all of us to gather in the spacious living/dining room area. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, the rental agent was most helpful answering all our questions and the home was absolutely spotless. Best of all, the beach was just steps away and we spent many hours just walking along, chatting and looking for shells. The sunrises were beautiful, as were the stars at night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to visit again next year.

Manager response: We are always happy when our renters are happy.... and 99% of them are VERY happy with Seawatch! This gorgeous home is just several years old so everything is completely updated and in tip-top condition. As these renters stated, the house is pristine, the kitchen is totally equipped, the spaces allow for privacy as well as togtherness, and our wide, quiet beach is wonderful.
We couldn't have asked for a better or nicer place for our Thanksgiving family get-together. Seawatch was beautifully furnished, but comfortable and inviting. With our 7 family members ranging in ages from 12 to 85, the expansive living spaces made it possible for everyone to spread out and enjoy themselves and do their own thing. The real bonus was waking each morning to the sound of the surf and being able to walk a few feet off the deck to a secluded and quiet beach. Thank you, Judy at Wren Beach Rentals for making our get-together totally enjoyable and memorable!

Manager response: We are delighted that Patty and her family enjoyed all the comforts of Seawatch. Like all of our properties, Seawatch is beautifully furnished, completely equipped, spotless, and outfitted to make our renters feel pampered. Our beach is quiet, peaceful and very difficult to leave! We think you will love Seawatch as much as Patty and her family did.
We rented Seawatch and a second home (Ocean Blue) just down the road, from Wren Beach Rentals to accomodate eight gentlemen on a golf trip. Seawatch was our gathering and cooking home. This home was very spacious, well kept and clean. The location is very accessible from JAX, and was within easy driving distances from all the golf courses we played. The folks at Wren Beach Rentals were easy to deal with, access to homes was made very easy, and everything advertised was provided.

Great for the entire family!
Great for the entire family!
We wanted to say Thank You to Wren Beach Rentals for providing our family with a beautiful rental. We loved everything about Seawatch & enjoyed spending the 4th of July in South Ponte Vedra. The home itself was perfect for our family group of 10, who all agreed that their travel from Tennessee, Colorado, & Arizona was well worth it. The home was spacious, spotless & filled with every amenity one could need. And while the house was great - nothing compares to the beach...we were so impressed by the sandy shores & crystal clear water. We enjoyed walking the beach for shells, swimming in the waves & relaxing while soaking up some sun. Our family hopes this was our first of many stays in the Ponte Vedra area & with Wren Beach Rentals. Until next time... Maria Webb & Melissa & Chris Minnis Nashville, Tennessee

2011 Spring Break at Seawatch
2011 Spring Break at Seawatch
We have stayed at several properties in the Vilano Beach/South Ponte Vedra area over the years and this property was the best we've encountered. The house is laid out perfectly for a big family or large party with bedrooms upstairs and downstairs as well as plenty of bathrooms and storage space. The large porch and ample seating allowed us all to be outside eating and sitting at the same time. Unlike most houses along the water, this house had yard play areas for the kids for when they were taking a break from the beach. If you don't know the area, this house is situated conviently between restaurants to the south and north. The nearest Publix supermarket is only 15 minutes away so food runs are very easy. The beach access is very easy the privacy of this stretch of beach is amazing. There is not a public beach access close to this house so we saw only a handful of people the entire week. We would strongly recommend this property to anyone looking to get away and enjoy the beach!

Manager response: We are happy that Chris and his family enjoyed Seawatch and particularly that they were able to take advantage of some of the special characteristics of this beautiful home. As they mentioned, the fenced in yard is very unusual in this area and provides a safe play space for children. The beach feels like it is your very own since public access points several miles away and the area consists solely of single family homes on the ocean and a lovely preserve on the other side of the road! If you are looking for a quiet beach, spacious and well appointed home, but easy access to shopping and activities both north (Ponte Vedra) and south (St. Augustine), Seawatch is perfect.
