Sandpiper's Nest is a beautifully decorated, oceanfront, 3 bedroom, 3 bath home on a high dune in the oceanfront community of South Ponte Vedra Beach, between Jacksonville and St. Augustine. Located in a very private area of single family homes (no high rises or high traffic here!), it is serene and quiet....yet the house is just 6 miles from historic St. Augustine and 15 miles from posh Ponte Vedra. Decorated in an upscale cottage style, with ocean colors, vaulted wood ceilings, and top quality furnishings, Sandpiper's Nest will quickly feel like 'home'! The spacious living-dining-kitchen area is open to the views of the deck , sea wall, beach, and ocean beyond. A large ocean front master suite has a king bed, day bed, desk, large wall mounted TV, and a private bath with walk in shower. Two additional bedrooms and baths provide privacy for everyone. The large deck, gas grill, beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas are just a few of the many amenities we offer in this luxurious ocean front setting. We have a small screened porch on the north side of the deck, providing a lovely space for enjoying the outdoors in rainy weather or when you have had enough sun for the day. We have a electric fireplace for winter guests (Christmas through February) and a fenced yard for dogs!
The living-dining-kitchen area is open to the views of the deck , seawall, and the beautiful ocean beyond. Comfortable seating, a fireplace for our winter guests, large flat screen television and DVD player, Bose CD player, books, puzzles, and games will insure that our guests will remain entertained, even on our few rainy days!

We also have an extra refrigerator in the garage. The kitchen is situated in the heart of the living area, with no walls to obscure the views of the living and dining areas and the wonderful deck and ocean beyond.
The master suite is a peaceful retreat. Located on the ocean side of the house, it contains a king size bed with top quality bedding. The room has a private bath with walk in shower, a large wall mounted TV/DVD player, and a desk for computing or other work. We also have a day bed in the master, which is perfect for lounging or for a toddler.
The junior master is on the front of the house and is equipped with a queen size bed, vaulted ceilings, large wall mounted TV, and a private bath.
The twin room is great for another couple, teenagers, or small children. This room will sleep 3, thanks to the trundle underneath, and the mattresses are regular single mattresses so are comfortable for adults as well as children. This room also has a TV. A full bath is located in the hall adjacent to this room.
You will love the hurricane shutters we have installed on all of the doors and windows! If you like to sleep in a DARK room, just push a button and there you are.
The deck is a destination in itself. Running the length of the house, the deck is 12 feet deep, providing lots of space for play and relaxation. Furnished with a round umbrella topped dining table, high bar table and chairs, and many comfortable chairs and loungers, the deck is a delightful spot to read, snooze, or dine. The deck railings have horizontal cables close together so that small children are always safe, and a lockable gate insures that they will stay on the deck. The cables also allow for unobstructed ocean viewing. We have a spacious sea wall which runs the length of our 90 foot property and is "decorated" with beautiful flowers and plants. The "wall" will be covered with sand and heavy polywood yard chairs, allowing for additional outdoor space.
If you have golf enthusiasts in your family, bring your putter! In the summer of 2022, we installed a beautiful, four-hole putting green. It may not be Pebble Beach or Torrey Pines, but where else can you practice your putts with an ocean view!
The south side of the house is filled with grass and fenced with access from the deck and also from the front parking area.. This is a perfect place to let your dogs run free and take care of business without your having to walk around in the night!
