About the property

6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5+ Baths, Sleeps 12-16

'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.

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.

Perfect location with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week with our kids and their spouses in this spacious home. The pool and hot tub were used everyday! They were clean and big enough for all of us to enjoy at the same time. The maintenance crew came twice during the week and were very nice and worked efficiently to make sure both were clean and working properly. The beach was beautiful and not crowded at all! We walked up and down the coastline and had the beach to ourselves. The water was perfect! The home was spacious and well decorated. We cooked all our meals each day. The kitchen was spacious and easily fit the eight of us around the table. The island was a great space for the meal prep. The grocery stores were conveniently located and the staff at the Publix were exceptionally friendly. The guys played golf at Victory since Saw Grass was under construction and had fun. One of the highlights of the home were the arcade games downstairs. The guys had a blast competing on the race car game. We were blessed with great weather and a wonderful home right on a beautiful beach!

Wonderful, beautiful, peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 14 very much enjoyed this home for the past week. The property is a well maintained, beautiful grand property. The family was very comfortable and when we needed anything it was very quickly taken care of. The beach and pool area are just wonderful with a picture perfect view of the very close, quiet beach and private walkway. We had a wonderful time, thank you so much.

Best Family Trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 1st time in 16 years that our family was able to all get together for a family vacation. The house was what I had hoped for. PLENTY of space. No one was on top of each other. Everything needed in the kitchen was there. Ample linens. The pool with the best spot for the kiddos. They loved it. Rick and Jenny - you are the best I have ever worked with! Hopefully can plan another trip before another 16 years goes by! Thanks!!

Great for a Large Family

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in quite a few places and this is the best. The pool is large enough to swim and for lots of kids to play, the hot tub is great and the walk to the beach is fine. The kids loved the game room, and the bedrooms were large and well designed. The upstairs queen room is the only bedroom without a bath, but there are two half-baths available. Lots of parking space, and Rick & Jenny were very helpful and responsive.

Beautiful place and wonderful owner/managers!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, wonderful Thanksgiving family reunion at the Ocean Estate! The home was well-equipped for a big, BIG turkey and many pies...we cooked for days! We had a very nice pool, a great hot-tub(there was always someone in it) and a direct walkway to the beach...windy and lots of waves. The house was spotless and the game room was always filled with folks watching movies or playing pinball. We had a couple problems that were very promptly addressed by Jen and Rick. We just couldn't have asked for more cooperation and are grateful that our week-long family time was in such good hands! We would recommend this place and OF Property Management to anyone coming to a Florida beach. Many thanks!
