Large master bedroom/bathroom suite is located on the first floor. Fully equipped, modern kitchen is perfect for orchestrating dinner parties. Downstairs living and dining rooms and a relaxing screened in porch with ceiling fan are perfect for kicking back. Large upstairs area with a second entertainment room and three spacious bedrooms completes the floor plan. The adjacent upstairs balcony is perfect for catching the sun and the breeze.

Huge fenced backyard with plenty of room for play and relaxation and small parties - rare landscaped lot with palms and private flower garden. Beach access is provided by a private catwalk. Beautiful sunrise and sunset views define the property.

About Frederick Jenkins

I have lived in Jacksonville for twelve 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 St. Augustine Area

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.

The Perfect Beach Front House

  • 5 of 5

This beach house met all of our expectations and more. We flew out from San Diego (during a hurricane) to attend a UF Gators football game and stayed in Ponte Vedra because my husband grew up right down the street from this property. We brought our 12 yr old nephew and 10 yr old niece and they loved it. The house had plenty of room for all of us, my nephew loved his room with the view of the breaking waves, and the house was great. It had everything we could need and was literally steps from the beach. The kids collected the most beautiful shells and about 20 sharks teeth. Having a washer/dryer was great after all the swimming and boogie boarding they did. There were plenty of beach towels, and the house had everything we could possibly need. The master bedroom was great and had a really nice bathroom with shower and separate tub. The beds were comfortable, as well. Since the only public access to the beach is quite a ways down the road, except for a few other residents several hundred yards away, we pretty much had the beach to ourselves. Unlike San Diego, the water was warm and clear of seaweed, so it was a whole different experience for me. All in all, I would highly recommend staying at this house, and more than likely, we will be back. Mr. Jenkins was super easy to work with and we had no problems getting into the house. It was a great vacation, Mr. Jenkins, and thank you so much for making the entire process seamless!

Another Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer at this beachfront home. The spacious layout afforded ample room for our children and grandchildren to sleep or relax and the multiple oceanfront views are just an added bonus! Few homes afford such beautiful views of both the sunrise and sunset.The house is clean, well-decorated with a large modern kitchen. Most of our days were spent walking the beach in search of sand dollars, shells and sharks teeth. Our boys boated and surf fished and we enjoyed their freshly caught seafood for meals. Having only a few stairs on the walkway to the beach was especially convenient for my parents. We hope to return next year and the years following.

Lovely beach home

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful decor, plenty of space for a family of 6, very relaxing! The owners were wonderful hosts and really seemed to care about their visitors and vacation stay. No complaints or suggestions for this stay, we'd go back again.

Perfect beach house. Wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my in laws and 2 5 year old sons and we truly enjoyed our week. The home is very nice and well thought out. The beach is beautiful and so accessible. It has multiple living spaces and plenty of towels and other accessories. We have stayed in other homes nearby and this was our favorite. Also the owners were nice enough to leave us a bottle of wine and some coffee.

Property worked very well for us and we enjoyed our stay there.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very nice with great access to the beach and within about 10 minutes to St. Augustine. The kitchen is large with abundant cabinet space and more than adequate overall although the ladies did complain somewhat about needing more pots/pans, not sure. The only other recommendation I have is that the little charcoal grill is inadequate for cooking for large group and a good sized gas grill would be much more suitable.

The Jenkins' have replaced the sofa from the one in the photo and it was very comfortable and provided ample seating in the living area. When we checked in Saturday evening one of the lamps had a switch missing so there was no light on the night stand, the arms to the dining room armchairs were loose (easy fix as there are plenty of tools in the garage) and the screened in porch was dirty. I sent an email to Dr. Jenkins about these issues and the very next day Jessica Jenkins came by and personally took care of all the issues! VERY IMPRESSED with such a quick response!

Some mornings we enjoy going into St. Augustine for coffee at Cuccoburra's and we always plan to eat at least one meal during the week at Columbia House and pizza place in Vilano just west of the Publix.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful property!

Beautiful home and stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at Rising Tide very much. We were greeted with a lovely bottle of wine and Starbucks coffee. This beach house is absolutely beautiful and the views are stunning. We had lots of room for our children and grandchildren. Everything we needed was provided. The owner was very prompt in getting back to us with any questions. We love St. Augenstein and when we return we will be staying at this location again. Thanks from The Potts family.
