About the property

'Ocean Estate' - Truly, this is the finest estate on the ocean in Ponte Vedra!

Drive through the gate and enter the most glorious 6000 sq. ft. estate home you will find available anywhere in Ponte Vedra. Step outside your backdoor and discover your own heated pool and 8-person hot tub. Rarely found anywhere else, and then just walk on down your own private walkway to the beach. It's all here for you. Your own vacation resort for your own family, two or three families or reunions. The best of the best!

Walk into the foyer, up the spiral staircase to the expansive living room with cathedral ceiling and gaze out the wall to wall windows to your first view of the pool, fountain and ocean. Look to your left to the formal dining room that seats eight to ten. And then the updated kitchen. Everything you need plus a breakfast room overlooking the ocean that also seats eight. To your right, enter the private Master Bedroom Suite (one of two Suites) with a King bed, sitting room, private balcony overlooking the ocean, TV and bath with double sinks, new, full walk-in shower and new, whirlpool tub.

Walk up the spiral staircase to the third floor and discover the second Master Bedroom suite, with new separate whirlpool tub and new, large walk in shower. Plus two additional bedrooms ... one with a King and bath and the other with a Queen. Both have TVs. Plus a day bed in an alcove, off the Master bedroom.

Now the first floor. Huge Family/Game room with all possible techno gadgets, plus an exercise bike, stair stepper, pinball machine, popcorn machine, electric piano and more. Relax and play with great TV room set up, wet bar and more. Plus, a large sectional couch which could be used for sleeping. 5th and 6th bedrooms have a Murphy bed (queen) in one bedroom and a bedroom off the Murphy bedroom with two twins ... kind of a 'family suite' ... both bedrooms share a full bath and/or half bath in the hall. Add an airbed or two for kids if you like. Finally, full laundry room, of course.

To stay in touch, of course, the home has wireless.

Just 10 to 12 minutes from Sawgrass and 20 minutes to historic St. Augustine - and golf, boating, fishing and more in between - welcome to 'Ocean Estate' ... your vacation estate home!

(Special note: Guests may have privileges at the exclusive Serenata Beach Club just 5 minutes south with two pools, restaurant, bar and fitness center.) $245 for your group for 10 people with kids under 6 free. ($266 during the Summer) ... $31 extra for each additional person. Note on site pool unable to heat to capacity when temp is below 50, which is rare.)

Awesome property

  • 4 of 5

Loved the place, we came on a guys trip and had a blast, from the arcade to the ocean,pool, and hot tub. If I only had 1 suggestion it would be to upgrade the T.V. sizes, it happened to be championship weekend and we had a hard time watching and seeing the football games, and a bottle opener. We purchased the bottle opener so the T.V.'s are next, we will be back

Thanks for the great time

Owner's Response: Very happy the guests enjoyed the home and will be coming back. They were very nice people. Thought we had bottle openers there but we have made sure now. As always, we would have delivered them had they let us know, as we always try our best to correct any issues that we can the same day we learn about them. Have not heard about the problem with the TV sizes ... there are some large ones ... but well taken as we always rotate new TV's in as needed.

Incredible, Relaxing View

  • 5 of 5

My relatives and I (8 people) stayed at this amazing house for a week. There were numerous things I loved about it: incredible, relaxing views of the ocean, numerous sitting areas, plenty of room for everyone, short walk to the beach (which we almost always had to ourselves, not to mention the amazing shells), heated swimming pool and hot tub, close enough (but far enough) from town, etc. I would highly recommend this house. Just be prepared to go up and down a lot of stairs.

Beautiful Beachside Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Ocean Estate for a long weekend with family and friends. The house was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The house was spotlessly clean and the check in process could not have been easier. I was the first one in and left the others sitting in the car because I was so taken with the view and decor. The house had 3 large bedrooms with two of them having there own bathrooms on the third floor. One room did not have a bathroom or closet but there are so many bathrooms ad closets it is not really a big deal. There was a master on the main level right off the pool that was as nice as the second master on the upstairs level. On the ground level there was a bedroom with two beds and a Murphy bed. The twin room was decorated in a nautical theme and was absolutely adorable. The rooms allowed everyone some privacy so no one felt right on top of each other. The game room was a hit and everyone took their turn with pinball and the racing games. The hot tub worked great and had a great view of the ocean. The pool was stunning with lights and fountain and another beautiful view of the sea. The beach is a very short walk over a private boardwalk and we all took some quiet time to walk the beach and collect HUGE shells. There is plenty of refrigeration in the kitchen and a another refrigerator in the laundry room. The home is fully stocked with towels, beach towels, pots and pans. This home is a gem and so are the owners who were wonderful to work with. Would highly recommend this home as a vacation or get away location, you will not be disappointed! We are locals with easy access to the beach but the home is so nice we are already planning a return trip.

Great location with fantastic pool & private beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ocean Estates the week of Aug 12th. The house is beautiful and large enough for families with everyone having their own space. We loved having the pool right outside the door and only a short walk to the beach with a great walk way. Beach is very private as this is a very private area. The house if very well stocked with more than enough bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and even many pool toys and boogie boards. Property is close to grocery stores and many wonderful restaurants also only 20 minutes to St. Augustine. Owners were great to work with and we would definitely love to come back.

Best vacation rental on Ponte Vedre Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Ocean Estate. Can not say enough about how beautiful this property is. Perfect for a large family vacation or multiple couples. The house is very clean and well maintained. The beds are super comfortable. We love the large heated pool! You can literally float in the pool while enjoying an amazing ocean view, then just steps down from the pool you can be walking on the beach. We love shell collecting and always finds lots of great ones. Every room in the house has amazing views! The managers are quick to respond to any questions and are very helpful. We have rented other homes in this area and this is by far the best! Lots of great restaurants to enjoy a short drive from the house. We will be returning!!

The home was awesome! very clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. Better than shown in the pictures. Rick and Jenny are great, friendly, and very accommodated to our requests. Welcome Wine was a nice touch-Thank you! The location is very convenience to restaurants, and Publix. We were sad leaving the place and we will come back soon.
