Right on the beach, but may not get a good nights sleep

  • 3 of 5

PROs: We were so excited to see how close to the beach this house was situated. The views are spectacular! The beach is not over-crowded. A high-end area of homes with nature surrounding!

CONs: In the house, all of the beach facing windows were dirty. There were no beach toys or comfortable reclining outdoor chairs. Master bedroom bed was too hard to sleep on, we had to buy an air mattress. We also had to purchase dishwasher detergent, Kleenex, and toilet paper. The cleaning fee was very high ($194). Now this would be okay if we didn't have to do any cleaning ourselves but that was not the case. We had to put the garbage to the road, we had to wash all the towels and strip the beds of linens and also do the dishes.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay (after we bought the air mattress). However we would likely not rent here again. We have rented beachfront properties before, for less money, with more 'at home' amenities (fuzzy blankets for couch snuggling, gravity chairs for outdoor comfort, stereo, and a grill )

Vedra's Haven was Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Vedra's Haven was the perfect escape for our fall beach trip! The seclusion and solitude were precisely what we were seeking to escape our stressful jobs. Ms. Margeson and her staff were wonderful to work and communicate with - particularly when the back side of our vacation was cut short by Hurricane Matthew.

The house itself is beautifully situated right on the beach and there is a pristine nature preserve directly across from the house (sound side) - perfect for the kiddos to play or the avid birdwatcher. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked (much better than ours and we love to cook :) and the outdoor space features a shower with heated water! Awesome!! Ms. Margeson had tons of beach towels and even some sunscreen in case ours ran out. The master bed was comfortable and the house very clean.

The wildlife was abundant - gulls, pelicans, ospreys, sandpipers - to name a few. And we really enjoyed being at a distance from the "crowds" in town (not that it was crowded).

If you are looking for a "beach getaway", this is the place! We would highly recommend it for a couple's retreat or a family holiday.

Early Christmas Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with family at Vedra's Haven. The kitchen is well stocked, the views are beautiful with plenty of windows facing the ocean. Plenty of towels and linens and a great little outdoor rinse station before you enter the house. It's a really lovely spot and a treat to fall asleep to the sound of the waves.

Ocean in the backyard

  • 4 of 5

The value of this beach house is its location. The beach and Atlantic Ocean are directly behind the house and the back of the house is well designed with large windows and a covered back porch to take advantage of the ocean view. The house is not large or luxurious but functional. It only has two actual bedrooms. There is a small office that has a small bed and another pull out bed underneath it. There is a couch in the main living area that has a bed but not ideal. There are plenty of towels and dishes. The house is located on a 55mph highway and there were no outside lights that we had access to which made it difficult to enter and leave in the dark. There is a lower level and a garage but renters do not have access. The house is located a long way from the rental agency which was no fun after a long day of driving.

I would recommend this property because of the location on the beach. It is amazing to see and feel the immensity and beauty of the Atlantic Ocean for 10 hours a day.

Fantastic Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at Vedra's Haven. We chose this house for it's easy access to the beach, since we were bringing elderly grandparents with us. It worked out perfectly - with the ramp and just a few steps to the sand, Grandpa and Gram were able to navigate easily. The shower/hose situated on the landing partway up to the house is a HUGE benefit to keeping sand off of the deck and in the house. The covered deck was a lovely sitting area, cool and breezy after the sun rose high enough to be shaded. The open layout of the kitchen and tv area made for perfect family time, while the master bedroom enabled some peaceful relaxing time as well. We loved it!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Vedra's Haven and had a wonderful time. We spent each day on the beach, and we also rode bikes in the park. Vedra's Haven was great. It was located right on the beach. The beach house had everything that we needed. We did not want to leave at the end of the week.

Car: recommended

Enjoy this beautiful quiet beachfront. 15 minutes away from historic St. Augustine to the south and Ponte Vedra to the north. Wonderful restaurants along the inland waterway. Great golf at Sawgrass or the World Golf Village/Hall of Fame. Marineland is 25 minutes away. We are located directly across the street from the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Reserve where there is access to hiking, fishing, boating and wildlife viewing in a pristine natural setting.
