About Frederick Jenkins
I have lived in Jacksonville for 19 years and have worked as an emergency physician in the area since completing my residency at Shand's hospital. I have traveled extensively along the Florida coast and can tell you that northeast Florida is one of the most beautiful and pristine parts of the state. The coastal wildlife, from our vast bird preserve across the street to the rich St. John's river fishery, is unrivaled.
Frederick Jenkins purchased this House in 2002
Why Frederick Jenkins chose South Ponte Vedra Beach
Our house is located on the northern segment of South Ponte Vedra Beach. This is a particularly desirable section of this beach because on the opposite side of A1A, the coastal highway, is Guana River State Park, which includes a large tidal estuary and a bird and wildlife preserve. Such a vast game preserve produces huge numbers of pelicans, ospreys, egrets, cranes, and wood-storks which fly over the house and feed in the ocean behind the house and the marsh in front of it. There is no commercial glare along this section of the beach. The dunes and beach are in their natural, un-replenished state. The color of the sand is a gorgeous coral hue.
What makes this House unique
The house is large (3000 sf) and new. The construction is solid poured concrete and the appliances and HVAC are brand new. As such, tenants enjoy a vacation right on the sand without having to tolerate the musty, beach-shack experience that is commonly encountered. As the photos portray, the house is elegantly appointed and gorgeously decorated.

This is the third four bedroom property we have rented in this area and the only one that I didn’t have to move anything to make room for food and pantry items. We could tell the owners cared about their property as well as their guests. Everything was thought of from new measuring spoons to towels and beach chairs. It was a wonderful and much needed vacation.
Rented for mayo so it wasn’t a vacation but it was so nice to see the beach and an occasional walk. I mixed up the departure date and they were very kind
Amazing Vacation home.
We had an amazing stay at this home and Frederick the owner was amazing to work with.
He went above and beyond what we asked for when wondering about adjusting the temperature in the home and had someone come out to check it and afterwards followed back up with us.
The yard was amazing and access to the beach is gorgeous. The house was very comfortable for our 1 week stay and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We would definitely stay here again.
Thanks for letting us enjoy your home Frederick and we wish you the best of luck with future guests.
Everything we thought it would be! Clean, quiet, and beautiful!
We took our eldest son's family to stay here and it was a terrific time. We looked for shells on the beach and created lots of sand buildings. Being met with a bottle of wine and coffee to start off was a thoughtful gesture. Our only suggestion would be since we arrived after dark in the pouring rain to place somewhere very prominent the house numbers- we passed the house 3 times before we figured out it was the correct house. Many thanks for allowing us to share your house.
