About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3.25 Baths, (Sleeps 2-12)


This oceanfront home sits amoung the sand dunes of the east coast of Florida in "South Ponte Vedra Beach" where viewing of the surf and watching the Dolphins play is a site to behold. The home has spectacular views of the ocean with sunrises to the east and sunsets over Guana Lake in the evenings. Near great resturants in Ponte Vedra, Jacksonville and St. Augustine. Easy day trips to "Disney World", "Sea World", Universal Studios, Dolphin Cove and other Orlando attractions. "Kennedy Space Center" is also an easy day trip. The Famous "TPC Golf Course", home of the Players Champanionship, and The World Golf Village are just minutes away.

The house has three separate guest suites. The master suite has a king size bedroom facing the ocean, and a second bedroom with a set of twin beds. The master suite bathroom has a double whirlpool tub, double shower, double sinks and a bidet. The other suites each have a king size bedroom and a twin bedroom with separate baths for each suite.

The kitchen is right next to the great room and has fabulous views of both the ocean to the east and Guana preserve to the west.

The expansive great room is over 40 ft. long with a 24 ft. high cathedral ceiling, and large picture windows over looking the ocean.

The house has an open bright beach decor and decking surrounding the ocean front of the house as well as a wrap around deck to the south. The third floor has seating areas with decks facing the ocean and Guana Lake.

I have been with VRBO for over 15 years and have no complaints. Also look at all my Reviews and they will tell you how I do business in the correct way.

We have had 23 small Family weddings on our beach and because the house has a great room that is 45 ft long and a vaulted ceiling of 24 feet high, it has been very suitable that if happens to rain to have the wedding inside.

There is enough space for this type of gatherings to accommodate up to 30 people

Why The Owner chose South Ponte Vedra Beach

I searched the entire Southern Eastern Coast from MD,VA,NC,SC,GA plus the whole East coast of Florida plus the Keys and gulf side, out the Panhandle including AL. and found Ponte Vedra the absolute best with its closeness to the large growing southern city of Jacksonville with its excellent performing arts and professional sports and well as it being close to Orlando and the space center. The temperature being more moderate, less humid and lots of activities and fine resturants. I bought the lot in the 1980's, designed my home, supervized the building of it in the 1990's and have been extremely happy with the results and my chosen area as has have my family, many friends and guests.

What makes this house unique

ON the beach with lots of marine life activity, peaceful uncrowded beach to watch the dolphins and marine life play and the occasional breeching of whales, nesting of the giant loggerhead turtles and the fiddler crabs digging their nesting holes in the sand, shelling is great, surf fishing, beach glass and sharks teeth hunting. Seeing the sun and moon rise out of the sea and the beautiful sunsets over Guana lake and Perserve. Walking in the entensive parkland tails of the Guana Perserve is a treat and is only a few minutes away. Dining at the unique varied fish camps along the intracoastal waterway and watching the private boats and fishing trawlers go by as you dine under the massive oaks with their hanging moss.

Great vacation, awesome wedding, & spectacular house which we highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to be greeted upon arrival by the owner who designed the house along with his handyman. Both great guys who took excellent care of us throughout our stay. Special thanks to both of them who were just a phone call away and extremely attentive to all of our needs.

We really loved the house. Spectacular view on all sides of the house. The architect/design layout of the house was fabulous. The pictures don't do it justice. Glass windows all around the back of the house as well as the side with an awesome view of the beach. Master bedroom looking out to the ocean ...perfect way to start the day watching the sun rise. Roll over in bed & you can still see the sunrise reflecting off the closet mirrors that stretch across the room. Plenty of deck space out back & on the side with plenty of deck chairs. Upstairs loft area was one of my favorite areas.....walk out balconies on both sides with spectacular views. Several couch's/tables etc in the loft area to just relax or read a book, play cards, etc.

Six bedrooms that comfortably sleep 12 (two people per bedroom) plus twin bed & sleeper sofa up in loft area and a sleeper sofa on main floor to accommodate another 4-5 guests. Plenty of available floor space upstairs in the loft for anyone wanting to use an air mattress or sleeping bag. Our family members that slept downstairs raved about how secluded & quiet it was away from the rest of the house.

Large kitchen area & family area was great for family gatherings throughout our stay. Plenty of pots & pans & everything else you could think of in the kitchen. Extra refrigerators in garage. TV's in all bedrooms & in family room although too many other things to do so little time spent watching TV.

The house was conveniently located with easy access to all the activities that were planned for my son's wedding. Close to the wedding/reception held at the Serenata Beach club . Close to Villano Beach. Not too far from Sawgrass/Ponte Vedra & not too far from St Augustine.

Other family members, friends, & wedding party had other houses rented close by that we got to visit. While all their houses were really nice, those that stayed with us felt we had the best house of all.

While we didn't have any small children with us, we did notice several amenities that would be ideal if bringing small children.....(high chair, play-n-pack crib, small mattress, beach toys etc)

Great house!

a little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I have to say the house is so much more than the pictures indicate. We enjoyed the view of the sunrise every morning. Just beautiful!! We did go into St. Augustine but were just as happy hanging out at the house. We are a family that enjoys being together, the house was just the best bonus to spending time together. Ralph could not have been a nicer host. I would recommend his place to everyone. We hated to leave it is so peaceful and relaxing. We have rented before but we all agreed this one was the best place so far. Thanks Ralph from our family!!!!

A Fabulous Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a week in this amazing beach house located in South Ponte Vedra beach. We have enjoyed spending a week together at the beach for over 25 years and all agree this was the best house we have ever stayed in. The spacious layout allows separate areas for each family and the dining area has enough seating for everyone! The family room is huge with gorgeous views and a comfortable seating area. The kitchen is a fun gathering place to prepare a meal together. It truly has everything you will need to have a great family beach vacation. The owner is hands on and helpful in every way to ensure you have the best experience possible. We will definitely return next summer.

2016 Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Since we were attending a wedding at TPC Sawgrass, we decided to have the family reunion we've always talked about and rented a place on the ocean. We couldn't have picked a nicer house. We had 14 adults and I toddler, and everyone was impressed. The house is very well maintained, spacious and had everything we needed to be there for a week. The views were fabulous, great sunrises and sunsets. Best of all was the beach, very peaceful and private, no crowds at all. The owner was very nice to work with and you can tell is very proud of his place. We would definitely stay there again.

Great Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10-14 adults and teens have been renting this comfortable, private, ocean-front home in mid-July for 8 years. The six bedrooms and sleeping space in the loft and large kitchen and dining area easily meets our needs. It is well supplied. The deck overlooking the ocean has a breeze most of the time and is a great place to catch up on what's going on in the family. We all love this place and find it large enough to spread out and not feel like we are on top of each other. The beach is great for walking as is the park across the street. We enjoy the restaurants in the area especially Caps By the Water. St. Augustine offers a variety of shopping, eating and tourist activities. Ralph is a pleasure to deal with.
