The first floor includes a game area with a TV, DVD, Playstation 2 and even a sofa bed as well.

First class all the way.

Now, the bedrooms ... beautiful, private Master Bedroom Suite on second (main) level with queen, TV and whirlpool tub/shower...all just a turn of the head to the morning sunrise.

Georgia/Florida Weekend 2016

  • 5 of 5

We rented Ocean Retreat for the Georgia/Florida football game in October. There were 6 couples so we were looking for a spacious and comfortable place that would accommodate a group of this size. Ocean Retreat fit the bill perfectly. It is large enough that everyone had a private space to retreat to if necessary but not so large that we couldn't socialize. The multiple decks were great and the views from both inside the house and from the decks were awesome. The crow's nest deck gave an absolutely breathtaking unimpeded 360 degree view of the ocean, beach and river. Rick was great to work with and made sure the house was in perfect condition for our visit which occurred less than two weeks after Hurricane Matthew hit South Ponte Vedra Beach. Our group unanimously decided to re-book for next year which we have done.

Large Beach House with Stunning Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this oceanfront beach house for large family reunions. There are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for multiple families. We were a group of 14 and had plenty of space. The ocean views are spectacular. You have a direct view of the ocean from the living room and kitchen. One morning while eating breakfast at the table, we saw dolphins jumping out of the water over and over. The beach area in front of the house is another plus. You pretty much have your own private beach. No crowds at all. We spent the days body surfing in the ocean and taking long beach walks collecting shells. This was the second time we have returned to this house and it was once again a vacation to remember always!

Fantastic for the twelve of us

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Ocean Retreat. The house was even more than we expected - each floor had room to "get away" from the crowd but the common areas were perfect for everyone to gather. Beds were very comfortable, lots of sitting room, especially enjoyed hanging out on the deck watching the waves roll in. We will definitely rent again!

Spoiled for life!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect! There was lots of room for our party of 12 and every room has a view!

There were plenty of towels, dishes, silverware, cookware. There’s some board games and puzzles in the closet. There were a whole lot of beach chairs, a few boogie boards & kids toys. Definitely pick up an umbrella, because the sun is hot. Publix is a few miles south on Ocean Boulevard. Big gas grill along with a picnic table. Founds lots of shells and sharks teeth! Saw dolphins too!

The first floor has a bedroom with a queen bed and a TV, another bedroom has two twin beds, and a small room that holds a large fold out sofabed and a TV for playing games (bring your own games). There’s a full bathroom on the first floor also. Garage has room for one car in it. Rooms all had windows with views of the ocean.

Second floor has the kitchen, a big table with leaves to add to seat ten -12 comfortably. We used this for the main meeting room. There was a large couch and two chairs and coffee table in between. Sliding glass doors all around that lead out to a magnificent porch that holds lots of Adirondack chairs and rockers. This floor also has a full bathroom, a bedroom with queen bunk bed bottom and single upper, and the master bedroom with its own full bathroom, queen bed, and TV. The bedrooms also have wonderful views of the ocean with sliding glass doors that lead out to porch. Also on this level is beach access down the newly decked walkway to the beach. There’s a shower by the stairs to the beach to rinse the sand and saltwater off.

The third floor holds another kitchen area w/refrigerator for the overflow of food or drinks. Big wraparound couch with big screen TV & DVD. Room is surrounded by sliding glass doors. Full bath in hallway, bedroom with a queen bunkbed bottom and single upper, and 2nd master bedroom with full bath & TV. Sliding glass doors in each bedroom lead out to porch. Also a laundry room. Third floor porch has access to the crow’s nest where we spent hours enjoying the 360 degree view and the stunning sunsets. It seemed like you could reach out and touch the steady stream of pelicans that flew right over our heads.

There was plenty of parking in the driveway and parking available across the street. Rick was super helpful and was quick to answer questions or solve any issues that we had. I would definitely come back to this house, it has everything a large gathering could possibly want. I hated leaving!
