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.
