When you stay at Seashell, you can pretend that the pink-tinged Ponte Vedra Beach and the sparkling Atlantic Ocean are your private domain. Not only is this section of the beach quiet and relatively unvisited, but the recently renovated bungalow is only steps away. In fact, it has a private walkway across the back lawn to the sands. You can watch the waves from Seashell’s screened-in patio and listen to them from its 3 bedrooms.
The patio will no doubt be a favorite space for gathering. The window screens help keep pesky insects out while letting the salt-kissed breeze in. The ceiling fan will keep you cool even during the dog days of summer. Because it’s furnished with numerous chairs, settees, and tables, you can spend pretty much your entire day out here. There’s no better way to start your morning than sipping fresh-brewed coffee or cold juice on the patio while watching the sunrise over the Atlantic.
The backyard also has a sitting area with a fire pit. Sit outside with the kids and roast marshmallows, or enjoy a romantic late-night drink with your sweetheart as stars twinkle overhead. There’s a charcoal grill as well. After barbecuing your fresh-caught fish or veggie kabobs, savor your feast alfresco on the patio.
The interior of Seashell is just as restful. The living area boasts a beamed ceiling, whitewashed walls, and plenty of windows to create an airy, inviting ambiance. The leather sofas and comfortably padded chairs provide more than enough room for everyone to kick back and watch TV or play a rousing game of Pictionary.
The kitchen’s sparkling stainless-steel appliances and gleaming granite countertops will persuade even reluctant chefs to get cooking. The open layout lets you watch TV or chat with friends while you work your culinary magic. When you’re not dining in the screened-in patio, everyone can sit at the kitchen island.
Seashell’s 3 bedrooms are as laid-back and serene as you’d expect from a beachfront bungalow. Two of the bedrooms include a full bed; the 3rd has a pair of twin beds. Prop yourself up against the pillows to surf the web via the free WiFi or to catch up on your reading, or sprawl out and let the calls of the plovers and the breeze rustling through the palm trees lull you to sleep.
Seashell’s amenities include a washer, a dryer, a carport to protect your vehicle from the sun, cable channels, and a large yard where the kids can run around. The star attraction, however, is the beach just beyond your door. You can come and go as you please; no need to load up the car and sit in traffic before you can feel the sand between your toes. Swim and paddleboard, canoe and kayak, build sandcastles and collect seashells, laze on a blanket and watch dolphins bob in the surf, stroll barefoot at night in the silvery shimmer of moonlight. As a bonus, the house has an outdoor shower, so you don’t have to worry about tracking sand indoors.
If you golf, be sure to bring your clubs. Seashell is just a short drive to numerous golf courses, including TPC at Sawgrass, home to the annual Players Championship. Equally close is historic St. Augustine, the country’s oldest city; Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archeological Park, the Lightner Museum, and St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park are just a few of its attractions. And for an additional fee, you can become a temporary member of the prestigious Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, which has a golf course, 15 tennis courts, 4 heated pools, a gym, and more luxurious amenities.
When you stay at Seashell, you’re sure to make magical memories of good times with family and friends. Don’t miss out; book your stay today!

The location was great. Not many people around so was quiet and relaxing. Just what I needed. I have stayed at numerous VRBOs and most have a binder or outline to help you with things in the house.... not this one! The garbage disposal had a horrible smell and never could figure out where the switch was. Lamps had no bulbs in them... just little things that didn't add up to the price point. Our MAJOR complaint is the amount of bugs. Highly recommend this house being treated for roaches. That is the MAIN problem on why we will not be staying here again. Keep a shoe in one hand and a bottle of bug spray in the other.
Less than expected.
When you walk in, it is noisy from the two window air units that augment the central air. There is one unit right in the living room, and another in a bedroom. We were not expecting multiple window AC units. You will not hear any surf, even though this house is right on the beach. Two bedrooms have one full bed each, and the other has two twins. We were surprised that none of the rooms had a queen at least. Not what we are looking for in a vacation stay. The alarm unit would not stop beeping. I called the alarm company and the maintenance folks. The alarm company said to disconnect the battery, which I did, and apparently there is another power source. The maintenance folks never did anything. I found a key sequence that stopped it for a few hours at a time, but still had to get up in the middle of the night to enter it in again every night. The door locks open with the keys, but don't always unlock, so we locked ourselves out twice. Both times I was able to get into the house. The first time through a door window that had no latch because it had corroded away. I had to find a piece of wood to prop against the frame on the inside to make it safe. The second time, one of the bedroom windows was not latched and popped in as soon as I pressed it. I don't understand why there is an alarm system. All it does is annoy you. The TV situation is interesting. The living room TV is nice with a basic Comcast cable subscription - not HD. There is a TV in one of the bedrooms with full bed, and it has a DVD player and a Comcast unit, but the power adapter is missing. All the overhead fan/lights are remote controlled, which is nice, but the one in the room with the two twin beds, does not work. It isn't the battery because we put a new one in there, so the fan/light in the kids room was useless. It's a shame, because it seems like it wouldn't take much to fix this place up. We would never consider returning.
Definitely recommend staying at this property. Wide-open beach front inside and out. House is clean and comfortable.
We loved the home lots of character and the fire pit was special at night thank you so much !
Absolutely beautiful beach
The house needs some maintenance. The there is a lot of minor breakdown. The house is beautiful but wasn't very clean. Counters and floors still had food on them from previous renters. Other than the minor things that fell apart and the need of a house keeper. This house was amazing.
Cottage like getaway
We loved the cottage atmosphere! My kids loved the yard to play in and the beach. I was just so happy to be away!
