Oceanfront House with Private Beach, Patio, and Gameroom

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is a great house, right on the ocean, that has been newly remodeled and renovated. It is a two-story house with four bedrooms (king, king, queen, and twins) and three bathrooms. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are located upstairs; the other bedroom and bath, along with a game room which has a sofa-bed, are located downstairs. The two floors provide a lot of common area space, which can be nice with even the closest of families (i.e. teenagers vs adults). It is perfect for the extended family.

Outside, it's only a few steps to the beach. There are plenty of chairs and chaise lounges, a fenced in courtyard with gas grille, outside showers and covered area for some shade. Just a great beach location!

The full kitchen, living room, and upstairs master bedroom overlook the Atlantic Ocean; and a comfortable second floor deck overlooking the ocean can give guests a breathtaking view of the sunrise over the water. Perfect for sitting in the shade and watching the activities on the beach below.

The house is strategically located midway between prestigious Ponte Vedra and historic St. Augustine, which offers dining, shopping, and recreation for all. The house is bordered on the west by a nature preserve, and only single family, oceanfront homes as neighbors. This makes for a very uncrowded, relaxing, safe beach experience.

Please note that this is a non-smoking house, and does not allow pets. Also, the house may not be used as a venue for weddings, reunions, or other events hosting those not staying at the house. The person responsible for the rental must be at least 25 years old and staying at the house, and the maximum number of guests allowed is ten.

During the peak summer months, June, July, and August we only offer week-long Saturday to Saturday rentals. Also, there may be some other periods during special events where minimum stays or additional rates apply.

If you're within thirty days of your desired rental, call us about last-minute specials!

About The Owner

Tom Turnage was born and raised in Northeast Florida and is the owner of the Turnage Company, a design/build construction and remodeling company in Jacksonville. He purchased the house in 2003 as a fixer-upper and has extensively remodeled the house since purchase. He loves his beach house and uses it for both personal use and as an investment. He is active in the community and is the President of the SPV-Vilano Beach Restoration Association.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Florida North East

Tom grew up in Northeast Florida and resides in Jacksonville. went to beach often while growing up, now as an adult enjoys the area and appreciates the unique opportunities the area provides. The house is far enough away from our Jacksonville home to feel like we've gotten away, but is close enough to escape in the middle of the week even for a night.

What makes this house unique

Peace and Quiet. The house is located between Jacksonville Beach and St. Augustine. It is surrounded by Guana State Park and the closest public beach accesses are almost a mile away. Probably one of the least crowded beaches in Florida. It is a great for those who want to get away from the rat race, but still be close enough that golf courses and good restaurants are a short drive away.

Highly Recommended Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a few days here while here for my son's graduation. We had such a great experience. The location was wonderful - you can't beat beachfront property. Although the house is some distance from Jacksonville, it was only 15 minutes or so from St. Augustine (which we enjoyed exploring). The house was clean, well stocked, and obviously well taken care of. We all agreed we would come back in a heart beat and stay here again. If you are thinking about renting this place, I would highly recommend it! If we ever need to stay in the area again, we'll be back.

Home, Home on the Beach, where the waves, the kids and the grownups play.

  • 5 of 5

Imagine every morning waking up to grab your coffee, Adirondack chair, and towel to watch the sunrise over the waves. Or walk hand and hand under the moon with waves caressing your toes.

Our family of eight, ages sixty-one to nine, spent a week riding waves; basking in the sun; reading on the upper deck, patio, and beach; playing catch in the ocean; building castles with moats; being buried in the sand; talking and laughing together.

The "Sand Keeper" Beach Home has everything you need; four bedrooms, three bathrooms, full kitchen upper level, lower level kitchenette, three flat screens, computer with Wi-Fi, washer/dryer, patio tables with chairs, and a grill.

This home is nice and comfortable with an easy 5-10 minute drive to visit St. Augustine attractions or dinner out.

Tom and Jim are friendly and helpful, responding immediately to any questions we had.

We are already planning our next stay.

Wonderful Oceanfront Home! Our family had a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 had a great stay at this home right on the ocean. The house is steps away from the surf!! Very secluded/private beach experience with St. Augustine only 10-15 minutes away for shopping and tourist attractions. The owners were great to work with. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: JT, Thanks for your review and your comments. We definitely had some damage from the storm, but took advantage of the downtime and did some additional improvements during the construction process. It's always nice when people notice our efforts to make it nice. Thanks, again, and please come back.

Absolutely beautiful beach house on basically private beach.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 4-year-old son while visiting my mother-in-law in Jacksonville. It was absolutely wonderful. The beach house is well-maintained and not fussy - very comfortable and very accommodating to young children. The bottom floor of the house is basically brand new due to damage from the hurricane and it looks beautiful. The location is unbeatable. We were here in late April and we basically had the beach to ourselves each day. Plus, when it was low tide, the sand bar created a perfect pool area that was relatively shallow and didn't have many waves, which was perfect for my son. Everything was exactly as we hoped and we will definitely be back. Plus, Tom was the perfect host - he responded to every email and phone call right away through the reservation process or if we needed anything during our stay.
