About Frederick Jenkins

I have lived in Jacksonville for 19 years and have worked as an emergency physician in the area since completing my residency at Shand's hospital. I have traveled extensively along the Florida coast and can tell you that northeast Florida is one of the most beautiful and pristine parts of the state. The coastal wildlife, from our vast bird preserve across the street to the rich St. John's river fishery, is unrivaled.

Frederick Jenkins purchased this house in 2002

Why Frederick Jenkins chose South Ponte Vedra Beach

Our house is located on the northern segment of South Ponte Vedra Beach. This is a particularly desirable section of this beach because on the opposite side of A1A, the coastal highway, is Guana River State Park, which includes a large tidal estuary and a bird and wildlife preserve. Such a vast game preserve produces huge numbers of pelicans, ospreys, egrets, cranes, and wood-storks which fly over the house and feed in the ocean behind the house and the marsh in front of it. There is no commercial glare along this section of the beach. The dunes and beach are in their natural, un-replenished state. The color of the sand is a gorgeous coral hue.

What makes this house unique

The house is large (3000 sf) and new. The construction is solid poured concrete and the appliances and HVAC are brand new. As such, tenants enjoy a vacation right on the sand without having to tolerate the musty, beach-shack experience that is commonly encountered. As the photos portray, the house is elegantly appointed and gorgeously decorated.

Much smaller than thought it would be and don't see how you could sleep 12 people

  • 3 of 5

I guess it was because of the hurricane the season before but there wasn't any sand on the beach it was all shells and the drop off into the water was so severe that the water was over your head when you were only 10' off of the beach into the water.

Excellent vacation

We were very happy with this property! The landlord couldn't have been any nicer and was very accommodating. We'll stay here again on our next vacation!

Great experience, beautiful home, helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful, restful reunion at this home. GORGEOUS views and beach access right out the back door. Simply and beautifully decorated, with large common space and several outdoor spaces, the home was perfectly set up for a group to enjoy time with each other, make communal meals, etc. The owners were communicative, helpful, and really went the extra mile to make sure we had a good experience. Would definitely stay here again!

spacious and clean- gorgeous beach view!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this home- and as our first VRBO experience, it sold us on doing it again. Beach access was wonderful. The kitchen was well-equipped except for linens. The dining table was HUGE! Private sitting area upstairs was nice for when you've had too much togetherness for one day!

A couple of *minor* issues: No hair dryer (we left the one we bought for the next folks) and the property is not very well marked esp. if you're arriving after dark. While it was too cold for us to get in the water- a place to hang beach towels on the covered patio would be a nice addition.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was gorgeous and very well cared for. The views were spectacular. There was so much space in this house, and my family had tons of room to spread out. Everything we needed was there. The only complaint I have is that we couldn’t stay there forever!
