About Gretchen Kornutik

We are in Real Estate and came across this VERY big project years ago. The home needed to be basically gutted. The idea was to have the most amazing views and relaxation possible. We were without Wifi until we decided to share the home with you! There is almost no cell phone signal anywhere in the Preserve. The ocean is so healing and calming. We have enjoyed loads of friends for days at a time. We do have lots of stairs but it is a great location for families as the very young and very experienced can share the porches together out of the sun if needed.

Why Gretchen Kornutik chose South Ponte Vedra Beach

First it was an amazing deal and challenge within the oceanfront Flip world. We ended up falling in love with it. We finished the renovation right before Hurricane Mathew hit last fall. Most of the properties in the stretch of the preserve sustained tremendous damage. Due to the structure of ours- we faired well. We lost the dune and built the new sea wall with is not a great lawn for you to relax and play on.

What makes this House unique

Hopefully because we have been there, you will have everything you need. Being right on the beach and then backing to the preserve offers amazing views in all directions. I have purchased some games for the kids and have loads of extra pillows and blankets so everyone can get snuggly!

                                                    8 of us stayed the weekend for a friend's 50th girls getaway. We had dinner in the first night and loved eating around the large dining table and enjoying the view. The rooms were great and the beds and linens so comfortable. Everything was so clean and fresh. We all commented on how we would come back here again and bring or families. The only one thing I would suggest is having a little better bathroom situation downstairs. Other than that the place is great!

                                                    Awesome family vacation!

                                                    Home is amazing! Great views, very spacious, we were not missing anything!! The home was very clean, which was by far one of my favorite things. We had 13 people of all ages, youngest 10 - oldest 73 and everyone was comfortable and enjoyed themselves. It was one of chilliest weekends but again we all had a great time and the coldest didn’t spoil our fun. We will definitely be back!! 😊

                                                    family reunion

                                                    Dan H.

                                                    Fantastic set up for family reunion. Kid and pet friendly with all the beach toys provided made for a relaxing long weekend. Great time spent with family----beach views--chairs galore. Would rent again

                                                    It was amazing!

                                                    A home away from home, we loved it! Beautiful views day & night and the house looked beyond Amazing! We enjoyed being able to walk on the beach which was so relaxing. A perfect place to get away for some peace and quite. It has tons of space for the whole family (10 of us to be exact) all of us had our own space. We will differently plan to book this home again very soon!!

                                                    In the presence of the Hurricaine coming this home and family were amazing!

                                                    Sidda M.

                                                    We were fleeing the hurricane and decided to stay here by accident. The family was so hospitable and the home was secure and strong and so comfortable. I love that we found this treasure by accident and will definitely be coming back under less stressful scenario.

                                                    The Funky Turtle was PERFECT for our large family!

                                                    Chandler J.

                                                    We had an amazing stay at the Funky Turtle. As soon as we walked in and saw the ocean, we knew we made the right decision. This beautiful home sits right on the ocean and we took full advantage of that. The kids LOVED their bunk room and the owners already had games down there! It's touches like that, that put staying here above any other vacation rental we've stayed at. The furniture and deco was up to date, in excellent condition, and beautiful! There was plenty of room for all 14 of us! Our bedrooms were so comfortable... not only did we feel like we were at home ... we wished that we could have stayed much longer. The rental rate for the Funky Turtle, especially for how thorough the owners were with making us feel welcome, was more than fair. I recommend staying here! You will not regret choosing the Funky Turtle.
