About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Beautiful beachfront home on a virtually private beach; nearest public access is over 1/2 mile away. This area of the beach offers great surf fishing; be sure to bring your gear!

Early mornings offer great opportunities for shelling; shark teeth, shells, and beach glass may be found at any time.

The house is located mid-way between prestigious Ponte Vedra Beach and historic St. Augustine, the oldest city in the USA. To view the Historic Area can take several days, especially if you visit all the antique shops.

We were all so comfortable in your home and had a wonderful time. My mother especially liked all your collectibles. We plan to be back this Summer.

Everything was perfect! I can't imagine a better place on the Atlantic coast for a quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The Meek's vacation home was perfect for our romantic Florida getaway. The location was even better than we imagined. The house sits directly on a very private beach (South Ponte Vedra Beach) and a quick drive to beautiful St. Augustine. We felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves until Saturday, and even then, we only saw a handful of people. The few people we did see were very kind and typically just out for their morning stroll. We collected seashells, hunted for shark teeth, played in the surf, and sat on the deck for hours listening to the tides roll in and out. The home is delightfully clean, cozy, and charmingly fashioned. There are plenty of kitchen essentials for cooking, dining, and entertaining. For a night out, we highly recommend dining at Cap's (bay-side waterfront restaurant), which is about a 10 minute drive from the house. Though it was just two of us sharing the large home, it would work really well for two couples or a family with kiddos. We think we'll bring kids along next time, as the beach was perfect for hours of family-fun, and the house is spacious enough to accommodate all six of us comfortably. The only downside to the house is pulling out of the driveway, as the road in front of the house has a 55 mph speed limit and it's tough to see cars coming from either direction. One of us would always walk across the street (highway) to motion for the other to pull out safely to the other side of the road (where you can then pause/park and get settled in, switch seats, etc. before taking off down the road). It wasn't a big deal, but notable, especially for a non-aggressive driver like myself. We will come back to this house again (and again and again). I highly recommend it. It's worth every penny.

**And, side-note, I left one of my favorite Native-American necklaces at the house and the homeowner emailed me immediately to tell me it was found (I hadn't even realized I left it!) and to provide him with instructions on getting it back to me. It was at my doorstep two days later. A beautiful home AND caring, attentive owners.

Beautiful Ocean Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 5 month old daughter rented this house for 8 days with both of our parents and had the most amazing time. The house was perfect for us and the beach area was absolutely perfect. The owner was super accomodating as well. I highly recommend this property.

Nice. We would recommend it to others.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the rocking chairs on the porch. Mother Nature provided the best feature. House was a wonderful design. Lots of Windows. Comfortable. Master bedroom impressive. We had bumps at the beginning figuring out the door locks and the wifi connection. Upstairs tub shower quite small for an adult to use. Getting out of the driveway can be frightening. Front bushes could be trimmed back to provide better view to the south for pulling out onto the road. The table in the living room was perfect for playing games, etc. The cottage afforded us a nice place to make memories to celebrate two 40th wedding anniversaries. Thank you.

Heaven on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this fabulous beach house. Our stay exceeded our expectations.

The house is clean and elegant. The beds were extremely comfortable. The beach and views are incredible. We truly felt like it was our home away from home. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Meeks for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Relax, relax, relax - that's what this home says. We loved it and will be back next year!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is very comfortable and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Beautifully decorated!! The back porch is awesome with rocking chairs - beach is just steps away. Very few people on the beach. Watched dolphins play several mornings. Parking is tight if you have more than two cars - the only negative we found. We will be back!!! Loved it!!
