Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Finally! A beach house with an incredible, fully fenced, ocean-front deck. Coastal Charm Beach House is brand new to the rental market and is ready to knock 6 pairs of socks off you and your guests. Choose this home’s new furniture, fixtures and appliances and the olden-days appeal of Ponte Vedra and you’ll never search for another vacation rental again.

You could hunt for a home with a slivered ocean-view or vague beach access, or instead spend a perfect vacation enjoying the non-stop ocean at all hours – whether you’re indoors or out. Sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean is an incredible sight. Lucky for you, you can stay in your PJs, sitting comfortably at the breakfast bar as the coffee-maker does its thing. More of a night owl? Bring a cup of tea or something stronger out to your ocean-front deck and spend a memorable evening stargazing.

Through your waking hours, you’ll be forever drawn towards the ocean. Whether you’d like to explore miles of beach as an independent, ‘quiet-time’ adventure, or as a family romp, it’s never been easier to grab some sunglasses and walk out the back door to your beach.

Access the deck from either the kitchen or the living room. When you’ve had enough sunshine, crash out on a couch in the living room. Enjoy a nap or an indulgent afternoon movie on the HDTV. With windows on all sides and a whitewashed beamed ceiling, it’s easy to drift off to fluffy cloud, vacation dreams.

A dining room is an ideal venue for long family meals or a surprisingly competitive board game. While the table seats all six guests (an unusual feature for a large beach home), you might prefer the casual convenience of the breakfast bar (not to mention its view!). A huge French-door fridge/freezer means you never need to run out of cold beer or ice-cream-for-breakfast. Besides groceries, everything you need kitchen-wise is thoughtfully provided. Even the view will exceed your expectations!

Two bedrooms have a king and queen bed respectively and, should you need it, the living room couch transforms to an extremely comfy sleeper sofa. This makes Coastal Charm Beach House the ideal spot whether you’re coming as one family, two, or as three couples meeting up for a relaxing weekend.

While you’re soothing your soul ocean-side, you needn’t miss an Instagram. Free Wi-Fi is included with your rental and there’s of course air-conditioning throughout (though you might love to use the ceiling fans with the sliding doors left wide open). Pack as little as you like! There are a washer and dryer to keep you clean. (Please note that the garage is used as owners’ storage, yet ample parking is available in the driveway area).

Coastal Charm Beach House is in an unrivaled location for quiet, private time with abundant wildlife all around – whether you prefer to spot migrating birds, whales or the multitude of species who live across the street at the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve. It’s a mouthful, sure, but as far as neighbors go, you’ve never known more spectacular! (Prefer slightly less esoteric entertainment? Disney World is just 104 miles away – a perfect day trip).

This property has optional access to the prestigious 5 Diamond resort The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.

Perfect location, could use some home improvements

  • 4 of 5

The location of the home is perfect. Right on the beach with VERY minimal beach "traffic". The back deck was a great place to watch the sunrise each morning. The house has charm and was good for our short stay. The Master BR was large and nice. But the guest room could use a new mattress and some updating.

The only real issues I found were:

1) the yard....or lack of it. With this being a pet friendly house, there is no yard area for the dogs to "do their business". The front yard is mostly palmettos (lining the entire drive) and a large patch of waist-high weeds (a mix of stinging nettles and beggar's lice). My dogs were covered in "beggar's lice" off the weeds every time they went into the "yard". I actually pulled weeds from a large portion of the "yard" just so I could stop picking the "beggar's lice" off my dogs each time they went out. A little mowing and weed-eating would do wonders and make things a lot more pet-friendly.

2) Housekeeping- the house keeping looked like it was rushed. Though the bedding and towel were clean and neat- There was "left over" dried toothpaste on the counter in the the master bath and there were several sticky spots left by the previous guests on the kitchen counter (kind of gross). The floor didn't feel very clean, but it is a beach house.

This house was great for our short stay, but I probably wouldn't enjoy a 7 night stay here - mostly because of the needed improvements (blinds on sliding glass door fell off every time I opened them, deck on the verge of needing repair (had to remove 2 splinters from my hand), batteries in all but one remote (tv/dvr) were dead, yard is REALLY over grown and has trash laying about.)

A little TLC to this house and it would make for a great place to stay for an extended period of time. Location can't be beat.

COASTAL NIGHTMARE!!

  • 1 of 5

Skip this rental!! So many things wrong upon checking in, faulty wiring, lights constantly flickering when various appliances run, even as small as the broken toaster. Incomplete kitchen utensils, lights that don't work all over the house. Their solution is to drop off bulbs / did not even take the time to install. Broken RUSTY grill, deck table and chairs cheap and broken, top of table not even secured. Furniture so stained it appears to have been used at a frat house in a former life - called several times for resolution, never got resolution; instead got employees that talked over me and gave me the run around. Filthy floors upon check in, bare feet black, I had to mop floors myself. Mold in the showers, cigarette butts and trash all around the property, some hurricane debris on beach that should be removed. Screen ripped on patio door, door handle on entrance door hanging by a thread, lights hanging from their housing....simply unbelievable that they represent this as coastal charm. Coastal nightmare is more accurate! It is a shame because the property could be quite charming with some tlc. The Mgmt company is inept and uncaring - impossible to get in touch with the decision makers to get resolution. I would like 50% of my money refunded and they should fix all of the items that are broken or missing before renting to another client. The maintainence man that came on Wed said many of the items that needed repair had been that way for several months. Pull out sofa is back breaking, so horrible that we purchased an air mattress to sleep on.

Relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

Nice quiet home on the beach. My husband and I wanted a weekend getaway with our dogs. This was perfect. The giant wraparound porch was beautiful to sit and listen to the ocean. The home has been updated and has bare essentials. Located near St. Augustine and Jacksonville so plenty of restaurants and activities for those wanting it. We will be back to this property for a longer stay!! B&A

Somewhat misleading

  • 2 of 5

While the interior is modernized and cozy, the outside and deck need some obvious TLC. The deck seems hazardous as it is leaning and what appears to be an old portion of the boardwalk still remains with exposed nails. The dishwasher was not operating during our stay and even though that was not an issue for us, it could be for someone vacationing that planned on eating in for the majority of their meals. The $250 cleaning fee was a steep price to pay considering the coffee pot had not been cleaned prior to our stay and still had old coffee grains in it along with an old used bar of soap in the masters shower. YUCK! Half of the interior lights had blown bulbs so lighting was an issue.

To the owner: you may want to reevaluate the property management service you are utilizing.

On a positive note: the location was perfect, the privacy was perfect. The beach view was amazing and literally right in the "back yard".

Recommend Cap's on the water for a beautiful sunset dinner only 7 miles away.

Make note that navigation does not recognize the mailbox number of 2427 but rather the number on the house of 2428. Very difficult to locate after sunset on a somewhat busy thoroughfare.

Wonderful place to stay. What you see is what you get! Just as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Coastal Charm was exactly what my wife and I needed to unwind. Away from the crowd and a little off the beaten path, so to speak. It is an enjoyable 20 minute drive to either St. Augustine or Jacksonville beach. Coastal charm is clean and kept well. My only complaint is that the cookware MUST be updated. The location is too far to "fetch" breakfast and lunch every day so your limited to cereal and sandwiches. There is not even a decent pan to fry up an egg. We will go back, but next time I'll pack a few kitchen things!

Nice House, but Poor Service Response

  • 2 of 5

Pros: the house itself is perfectly fine and right on a secluded beach front spot not really accessible to the public. The main room is large with a lot of windows and was great for our family. The master bedroom was spacious as well. As others noted, the management company does a good job sending email communications and the app is just fine. The house itself was clean when we got there, and the towels they left were brand new. The front deck is huge and great for enjoying the ocean views.

Neither Pro nor Con: the second bedroom is on the small side, and there really is not dresser storage in either bedroom.

Cons: on the morning of our first full day, the light fixture over the bathtub in the second bathroom came out while we were in the main room. It shattered in the tub. We called and left 4 messages over 2 days with the Maintenance part of the management company to come with a Shop-vac and get the glass out since the bathroom was being used by our 4 1/2 year old sons. We also sent them an email. No one ever called back or came to clean it up, and the vacuum in the home was useless.

However, they did send us an email to be sure to take the trash and recycling out on Monday for pickup.

Another con would be that the kitchen was somewhat poorly stocked for cooking. It had a lot of plates, drinking glasses and spoons/forks/knives, but we ended up buying a leaving a spatula and measuring spoons. There were no pot handlers, so we had to use towels. Really basic stuff was not there. In addition, while there was a grill, it was rusted and appeared non-working.

Finally, there was some damage to the beachside part of the house, especially the remains of a boardwalk to the beach. The owner or management need to tear it down and remove it or repair it since there are 2 large boards with exposed nails all over them. There were also exposed/raised nails on the front porch. Another negative with children around.
