About Frederick Jenkins

I have lived in Jacksonville for twelve 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 Florida North East

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.

Excellent beach home for family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage to celebrate my 70th birthday. We had low country boil for friends on Friday and all of my children and grandchildren on Saturday. There was plenty of room on the three porches and in the yard for all to enjoy the beach and sun. Great time

Excelent location and facilities

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week on this very nice property with excelent beachfront location. Very private and relative close to needed facilities. The owners were prompt to respond to some observations we made regarding minor issues. We recommend the place. Found it had almost all one needs for a confortable stay.

A wonderful home for our wedding ceremony!

  • 5 of 5

The Jenkins home was everything advertised and more. There was more than adequate space for our 12 people staying and when the winds picked up outside and our wedding ceremony turned from an outside party to an inside party, the open floor layout allowed for plenty of guests to come inside. We will definitely keep their property in mind if we decide to celebrate an anniversary in the area in the next couple of years. Fred was very easy to communicate with. Thank you Jenkins family for a great home away from home!

The Perfect Beach Front House

  • 5 of 5

This beach house met all of our expectations and more. We flew out from San Diego (during a hurricane) to attend a UF Gators football game and stayed in Ponte Vedra because my husband grew up right down the street from this property. We brought our 12 yr old nephew and 10 yr old niece and they loved it. The house had plenty of room for all of us, my nephew loved his room with the view of the breaking waves, and the house was great. It had everything we could need and was literally steps from the beach. The kids collected the most beautiful shells and about 20 sharks teeth. Having a washer/dryer was great after all the swimming and boogie boarding they did. There were plenty of beach towels, and the house had everything we could possibly need. The master bedroom was great and had a really nice bathroom with shower and separate tub. The beds were comfortable, as well. Since the only public access to the beach is quite a ways down the road, except for a few other residents several hundred yards away, we pretty much had the beach to ourselves. Unlike San Diego, the water was warm and clear of seaweed, so it was a whole different experience for me. All in all, I would highly recommend staying at this house, and more than likely, we will be back. Mr. Jenkins was super easy to work with and we had no problems getting into the house. It was a great vacation, Mr. Jenkins, and thank you so much for making the entire process seamless!

Another Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer at this beachfront home. The spacious layout afforded ample room for our children and grandchildren to sleep or relax and the multiple oceanfront views are just an added bonus! Few homes afford such beautiful views of both the sunrise and sunset.The house is clean, well-decorated with a large modern kitchen. Most of our days were spent walking the beach in search of sand dollars, shells and sharks teeth. Our boys boated and surf fished and we enjoyed their freshly caught seafood for meals. Having only a few stairs on the walkway to the beach was especially convenient for my parents. We hope to return next year and the years following.
