Property description

YOUR BEACHFRONT ADVENTURE AWAITS YOU!

Welcome to Heaven By The Sea; an exclusive, premier oceanfront property. Dreamy days and balmy nights will entrance your mind and captivate your soul…Richly enjoy each moment in your very own tropical oasis.

ONLY A FEW SHORT STEPS TO THE SAND AND SURF

Our property is situated in a private, quiet area. Public beach access is located one mile to the north and south of our home. Because of this, there are very few people near the area on the beach.

With no sand dune blocking the ocean, our house is one of the closest to the water; complete with "jaw dropping" views. You will definitely enjoy being so close to the beach sand - less than 10 steps away! Many oceanfront homes have very long walkways (as much as 100 feet or more) that must be traveled across, to access the beach.

Swim, surf, kayak or fish right from the backyard.

VIEW OUR GUEST COMMENTS

Our guests share their experiences with our home’s features, amenities and accommodations. Many “seasoned” vacation renters have commented that their stay here was their best one.

THE PERFECT BEACH HOUSE WITH ALL THE “BELLS AND WHISTLES”

We look forward to sharing an exclusive beach experience with our valued guests, by offering some of the finest benefits and amenities. Our guests enjoy many unique comforts and conveniences that are not found in most other vacation rentals.

Four (4) exterior decks offer generous outdoor living space and a myriad of options for outdoor entertaining. Multiple High Definition (HD) televisions, DVD players, and a Digital Video Recorder, finish out this seaside vacation home. Of course, no beach home would be complete without beach chairs, beach towels and beach umbrellas (all included and provided at our location).

FUN, FUN, AND MORE FUN

Enjoy ocean kayaking in one of two (2) provided kayaks. Take a ride on one of our many boogie boards. Don't worry about finding the perfect sized board; we provide multiple boards in assorted sizes! If you like, you can lounge and relax in our over sized outdoor beach hammock or grill a culinary masterpiece on the stainless steel BBQ grill.

KID FRIENDLY

There are two (2) bunk beds, two (2) separate twin sized beds and one (1) full sized bed (downstairs). We provide boogie boards, kayaks (2), life jackets (4), sand toys, recorded Disney movies (on the DVR), and a video game system. All upstairs decks can be completely “enclosed” for small children.

FOCUSED CUSTOMER SERVICE

Work together with the actual owner of the house. If desired, you will be greeted in person upon check in. 24 hour access to the owner (personal cell phone number) during your stay. Quality Control Program ensures that everything is perfect for your arrival.

EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN AND LAYOUT

One of the larger beachfront properties in the area. A unique 4 bedroom and 2 bathroom home offers nearly 1800 square feet of indoor living space. Tropical designer furnishings, artwork and accessories complete this coastal retreat. Two ocean front master suites lie on opposite ends of the home, creating their own private wing and offering exceptional options for multiple couples or families.

A PREMIER LOCATION

Downtown Saint Augustine (a popular tourist destination) is located approximately seven (7) miles to the south; far away enough from the tourist activity, but close enough for a short drive to enjoy the sites if you desired.

TREAT YOURSELF, YOU DESERVE IT

The perfect setting to celebrate an anniversary, family reunion, holiday vacation, or any other special occasion. Created to provide every comfort, convenience and long-lasting memories of a truly enjoyable vacation stay. You are invited to review our past guests experiences.

Extraordinary views right from the deck!!! 08/21/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


I, the VRBO Bear, had a wonderful time with my bear friends and family at Fred’s lovely St. Augustine beach house!

In the mornings, we headed out to the deck and enjoyed a cup of coffee while taking in the extraordinary ocean views. Once we had some energy, we grabbed the provided beach towels and chairs and walked just a few steps to the private beach. Some days we lost track of time basking in the sun and playing in the waves with the provided boogie boards and kayaks.

When it was time to eat, we had everything we needed to cook delicious meals for all of us hungry bears: a spacious kitchen, plenty of utensils, a fully stocked spice cabinet, and an outdoor grill.

The house was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the HD television (with lots of channels) was an added bonus for the nights we were worn out after a long day.

The location of the home was absolutely perfect. In the afternoons and evenings, we enjoyed nearby golfing and water front dining (thanks to Fred’s excellent suggestions). Of course, being only a short drive away, we also made several trips to the historic city of St. Augustine for shopping, sightseeing, and even more wonderful dining.

We absolutely loved this vacation rental and can’t wait to go back!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: As the owner of Heaven by the Sea, I would like to welcome you to our lovely home. I am a retired Navy pilot and father of two beautiful children. While stationed in Florida, I absolutely fell in love with the area. I currently live in Saint Augustine, FL and Honolulu, HI (where I was born and raised). I have always lived very close to the ocean and beach all my life. It is my desire to share this unique experience of oceanfront living with others as well. We look forward to your stay with us and welcoming you and your family as our very special guests!

Why the Owner Chose South Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, USA:
I chose to purchase a vacation rental in this location because of the private, oceanfront setting offered. The warm weather, tropical breezes and ocean surf made this the ideal location for me. The property is also located in an exclusive ocean side community within minutes to historic Saint Augustine, Ponte Vedra and World Golf Village.
