It's everything you would want from a fabulous beach home with all the amenities and updates and a whole lot more! Six bedrooms and five baths for multiple families make this the best value on the beach! Let's start with the living areas ... three of them. The second level boasts an up-to-date kitchen, living room and dining room that seats eight ... all facing glorious ocean views off a spacious deck with some 10 wood deck chairs. This is where you will be living the good life. The third level features a living/game room with a foosball table, a second kitchenette and a spacious den with a large flat screen TV, again, facing the beach with a second deck. The first floor includes a game area with a TV, DVD, Playstation 2 and even a sofa bed as well.

All this ... with high speed internet connection, gas grill, all the beach toys and chairs you need and your own private catwalk out to the beach.. and the fabulous Crows Nest for glorious views of the sunset. And, because we are members, your group can have access to The Serenata Beach Club two miles south for only $245 for the week ($266 in the summer)... two pools, fitness center, bar and restaurant (10 people, excluding kids under 6). First class all the way.

Now, the bedrooms ... beautiful, private Master Bedroom Suite on second (main) level with queen, TV and whirlpool tub/shower...all just a turn of the head to the morning sunrise. Second MBS on third level with queen, TV and private bath with tub/shower. One additional bedroom has twins. Two bedrooms have bunk beds with a twin over a double. And the final bedroom has a queen. Add a couple airbeds for the kids or use the sofa bed and the home can sleep 14.

Your Retreat is ready for you. 15 minutes from downtown St. Augustine and 15 minutes from Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra. See you soon!

We loved this place!

  • 4 of 5

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Ocean Retreat over Labor Day weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The place is large enough to accommodate our large family of 13. There was enough space for family gatherings and alone time. The kitchens and bathrooms could use some updating but that's the only issue I saw. Other than that the home is well appointed, including boogie boards and other beach stuff including beach towels! Great place!! You could even order your groceries through Instacart!

Ocean Retreat is Stellar!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ocean Retreat! The house had plenty of room- we had 6 adults and 7 teenagers and the two living spaces worked really well for us. The house is well stocked with beach towels, chairs and toys which is great especially when you are flying in. The location is fantastic- close to great grocery stores and 10 minutes from St. Augustine for all kinds of great food and entertainment ( something for every age ). The roof deck, however will make you never want to leave - best views of ocean and ICW - best star gazing ever. The owners were easy to work with- I can't say enough good things!!!!

Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful beach house located on a quiet stretch of beach between Ponte Vedra Beach and St. Augustine. The views of the sun rising over the ocean and setting over the preserve are spectacular and a perfect way to begin and end each day. There are ocean views from every room. With 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms there’s enough room for a crowd without feeling crowded.

I loved the wrap around decks and the crows nest

The house was immaculate and very well equipped, it had everything anyone could possibly want for a beach vacation. Definitely a very comfortable home away from home. Loved every minute of it.

Rick, the property manager, was extremely helpful and welcoming. Thanks again Rick for everything.

Fantastic Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

Perfect beach house! Would not hesitate coming back!

Pride of ownership and attention to detail is evident throughout this beach house. From the outdoor shower, well equipped kitchen(s), extra linens & towels to shoe cubbies by the door, gas grill with a picnic table and all kinds of beach stuff in the garage, we never wanted for anything in the two weeks we spend here.

The house is exactly as described and depicted in the photos, well maintained and spotless! Plenty of room for two families with teenage children. All rooms have views of the ocean - everyone could fall asleep and wake up to the sound of waves. The views from all decks are fantastic.

We spent a lot of time on the beach - it is very private, no crowds at all.

Publix (grocery store), about 5 mi south, carries just about anything you might need. We walked to the gas station, a convenience store aboyt 1/4 mi north, more than once to coffee/milk and such. St. Augustine is a short car ride away if you are looking for something other than beach.

Rick and Jenny were quick to answer questions. I have no doubt they would also quickly resolve any issues we might have encountered. When we first got there, they were still working thought some plumbing issues which were fixed in no time.

Georgia/Florida Weekend 2016

  • 5 of 5

We rented Ocean Retreat for the Georgia/Florida football game in October. There were 6 couples so we were looking for a spacious and comfortable place that would accommodate a group of this size. Ocean Retreat fit the bill perfectly. It is large enough that everyone had a private space to retreat to if necessary but not so large that we couldn't socialize. The multiple decks were great and the views from both inside the house and from the decks were awesome. The crow's nest deck gave an absolutely breathtaking unimpeded 360 degree view of the ocean, beach and river. Rick was great to work with and made sure the house was in perfect condition for our visit which occurred less than two weeks after Hurricane Matthew hit South Ponte Vedra Beach. Our group unanimously decided to re-book for next year which we have done.
