Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in South Ponte Vedra Beach

House, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)


Absolutely gorgeous! Best value for 2-3


Step into this 4000 plus square foot eight year old home and you won't want to leave. 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!

Large Beach House with Stunning Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this oceanfront beach house for large family reunions. There are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for multiple families. We were a group of 14 and had plenty of space. The ocean views are spectacular. You have a direct view of the ocean from the living room and kitchen. One morning while eating breakfast at the table, we saw dolphins jumping out of the water over and over. The beach area in front of the house is another plus. You pretty much have your own private beach. No crowds at all. We spent the days body surfing in the ocean and taking long beach walks collecting shells. This was the second time we have returned to this house and it was once again a vacation to remember always!

Fantastic for the twelve of us

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Ocean Retreat. The house was even more than we expected - each floor had room to "get away" from the crowd but the common areas were perfect for everyone to gather. Beds were very comfortable, lots of sitting room, especially enjoyed hanging out on the deck watching the waves roll in. We will definitely rent again!

Spoiled for life!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect! There was lots of room for our party of 12 and every room has a view!

There were plenty of towels, dishes, silverware, cookware. There’s some board games and puzzles in the closet. There were a whole lot of beach chairs, a few boogie boards & kids toys. Definitely pick up an umbrella, because the sun is hot. Publix is a few miles south on Ocean Boulevard. Big gas grill along with a picnic table. Founds lots of shells and sharks teeth! Saw dolphins too!

The first floor has a bedroom with a queen bed and a TV, another bedroom has two twin beds, and a small room that holds a large fold out sofabed and a TV for playing games (bring your own games). There’s a full bathroom on the first floor also. Garage has room for one car in it. Rooms all had windows with views of the ocean.

Second floor has the kitchen, a big table with leaves to add to seat ten -12 comfortably. We used this for the main meeting room. There was a large couch and two chairs and coffee table in between. Sliding glass doors all around that lead out to a magnificent porch that holds lots of Adirondack chairs and rockers. This floor also has a full bathroom, a bedroom with queen bunk bed bottom and single upper, and the master bedroom with its own full bathroom, queen bed, and TV. The bedrooms also have wonderful views of the ocean with sliding glass doors that lead out to porch. Also on this level is beach access down the newly decked walkway to the beach. There’s a shower by the stairs to the beach to rinse the sand and saltwater off.

The third floor holds another kitchen area w/refrigerator for the overflow of food or drinks. Big wraparound couch with big screen TV & DVD. Room is surrounded by sliding glass doors. Full bath in hallway, bedroom with a queen bunkbed bottom and single upper, and 2nd master bedroom with full bath & TV. Sliding glass doors in each bedroom lead out to porch. Also a laundry room. Third floor porch has access to the crow’s nest where we spent hours enjoying the 360 degree view and the stunning sunsets. It seemed like you could reach out and touch the steady stream of pelicans that flew right over our heads.

There was plenty of parking in the driveway and parking available across the street. Rick was super helpful and was quick to answer questions or solve any issues that we had. I would definitely come back to this house, it has everything a large gathering could possibly want. I hated leaving!

Fab holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay for our family reunion. With five adults and five children, I wanted us all to have our own space to relax, play and also make lots of noise (kids of course!). I needn't have worried because the house is huge. As previous reviewers have said, the ability to close off doors between the floors was a bonus and having two living areas meant that everyone could be accommodated whether they wanted to play games, read or chat. We all loved the proximity of the house to the beach so the children could be watched from the balcony and they all used the beach toys stored in the garage - many thanks. We saw dolphins and pelicans and star-gazed at night and it was lovely to wake up to the sound of the surf in our heads.

The house was very clean with plenty of bath towels and beach towels and having two fridges helped enormously. We also joined the Serenata Beach Club, just a few minutes up the road, and used the gym and the two pools nearly every day. Rick made our holiday very easy - he's the perfect host.
