Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in South Ponte Vedra Beach - Driftwood

3 bedroom, 3 bath beach house with an inviting back yard and incredible views!

Welcome to "Driftwood". The house is in the final stages of a beautiful renovation. It will be ready for vacation rentals at the end of May, 2015. The current photos are only temporary, as we will have professional photos taken once the final touches have been completed.

This 3 bedroom 3 bath oceanfront home is located in the oceanfront community of South Ponte Vedra Beach, between Jacksonville and St. Augustine. It is situated in a private area of single family homes (no high rises or high traffic here!)! It is serene and quiet....yet the house is just 7 miles from historic St. Augustine and 15 miles from posh Ponte Vedra.

"Driftwood" has a unique floor plan that offers plenty of privacy in each of the three bedrooms, and has a very inviting social area in the living room and the oceanfront sun room. The house was remodeled in the Spring of 2015. Driftwood is decorated in wonderful ocean colors, and each room has it's own character. The living room features comfy leather sofas and chairs which surround a large flat screen TV. There is a stereo with CD player, plus books, and games for the entire family to enjoy. The oceanfront sunroom has a daybed, perfect for snuggling up with a book, or stretching out for a lazy nap. There is also a work space for your lap top, should this be a working vacation. Free WIFI is available throughout the house. There is a decorative (non-functional) fireplace with a stunning mantle made from a 300-year old piece of drift wood.

The remodeled galley kitchen is fully equipped with everything that the most demanding chef could request. The solid surface counter tops and cabinets are new. There is plenty of counter top space for food prep. The kitchen features a full size refrigerator, plus there is an additional fridge in the garage for extra groceries. There is a glass-top stove, overhead microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and more. There is a door that leads outside to the gas grill. We provide the propane for the grill. There is a laundry room off of the kitchen, so you can keep those sandy bathing suits clean. The dining area features a beautiful wood dining table with seating for 8.

The master suite is on the ocean side of the house, so you can listen to the sounds of the ocean at night. The king bed is covered with plush, comfy bedding and pillows. The remodeled master bathroom features a spacious walk-in shower.

The second bedroom features a very cozy queen bed and full bathroom. There is a shower-tub combination in this bathroom. The third bedroom has a full size bed with a pull out trundle underneath. This room is great for teens, children, or a young couple. There is a full bathroom in this suite as well, featuring a walk in shower. Every bedroom in the house has a flat screen SMART TV with basic cable provided by Comcast.

The back yard is a wonderful place to gather. There is are two wood decks that overlook the yard and the Atlantic Ocean. One deck features a beautiful teak patio set with plenty of seating and a table that seats 8 for an ocean front lunch. The other deck has recliners for you to work on your tan. The back yard has a brand new bulk head, with just a few stairs that lead you down to your own beach.

Other amenities include: optional temporary beach club membership, 2-car garage, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, toys, 4 TVs, high speed Internet, books, games, and more.

Sorry, Driftwood is not a pet-friendly home.

About David Lombana at Wren Beach Rentals

Driftwood is owned by Ken and Angela Graf of Moorestown, New Jersey. They have been vacationing in the area for years, and finally decide to buy a beach house of their own. They spent many months in 2014 and 2015 remodeling the house, and have done a wonderful job. After renting other houses from Wren Beach Rentals, they have hired WBR to manage the rentals for Driftwood. We at Wren Beach Rentals are very excited to have the Grafs, and their wonderful home as part of our family.

Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4, my husband, myself and two young adult children had a great stay at the Driftwood! The house is wonderful inside, newly remodeled, super clean, large well equipped galley kitchen. The kitchen was stocked so well, right down to clips for snack bags, everything you could possibly need was there. The bedrooms were all a good size, bathrooms were nice. The best thing about this house was the awesome ocean views from the sunroom!! Large windows all along the back of the house gave us amazing views of the ocean, beautiful sunsets etc! Also, the beach is truly private and only a few steps away from the back deck, great for swimming! Never saw more than a dozen people along that whole section

of beach. The owners thought of just about every need, plenty of beach towels, lap blankets, cooler etc. The manager, David, was easy to deal with and the property is well taken care of.

The house was also very conveniently located, about 10 minutes to the market and 15 to historic St Augustine. When you need a break from the beach there are many things to see in St. Augustine. The Flagler College tour, Castillo de San Marcos, and Villa Zorayda tours were all well worth seeing. Also many shops and restaurants to explore. We all had a great time here, and would stay at the Driftwood again if visiting this area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at "Driftwood" this summer. We are very glad that you had a great time. As mentioned, the home was recently remodeled (Summer of 2015), and the home owners did a great job with everything. Unlike a lot of houses in the area, Driftwood has a bulk headed back yard, that offers a great space for the family to gather while enjoying the incredible views of the beach and the ocean. We hope to have you back again soon!

Amazing Beach Front Cottaage

  • 5 of 5

This was an adorable house, outfitted with everything our two family group could ask for. It was clean, bright and spacious. Beautiful beach cottage furnishings with comfy beds and large rooms. The ocean views from the house were perfect for sunrises and the large deck overlooking the beach was enjoyed daily.

The management staff attended to all our needs and made the rental process a breeze.

We will definitely return !

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation home. We traveled with elderly parents and needed a place with very few steps. My father was able to do the few steps onto the beach while my mom could stay on the patio and still feel like she was on the beach since it is so close. As for cleanliness, I didn't feel like I had to come in and wash all the dishes before using them. The entire house was spotless. It was also the best equipped house we have ever stayed in. I had the feeling that all renters are so pleased with the rental that they want to leave something for the next renter, such as k-cups for the coffee pot, spices, paper plates or other consumables. If vacationing in this area again, we would definitely stay here. I have already raved about it to friends. All went very smoothly with David, the manager and I thank him for a wonderful vacation

Owner's Response: We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay at "Driftwood". The current home owners purchased it in late 2014, and did a full remodel. The kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, EVERYTHING, is new. We look forward to you returning again soon!

Cute & cozy house with all the amenities of home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight, 2 adults and 6 young children, stayed at Driftwood for a week in November of 2015. We loved it! Waking up each morning and stepping out into the ocean was a dream! This house looks as to have been professionally decorated with much attention given to details! It was very clean and is fully stocked with anything you would need. Lots of sheets, pillows, towels, beach towels, kitchen supplies, fans, sand toys, you name it! Equipped with updated, fully functional appliances, including a front loader washer and dryer. Heating/cooling system worked great. New flat screen televisions in every room and three full baths, including a tub/shower combo for bathing little ones. All the beds were soft and cozy. Driftwood is close to St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Beach. There was a Publix (grocery store) close by - about a seven minute drive. The Alligator Farm is definitely a must see as well as a day spent in St. Augustine. We discovered the cutest little store on St. George Street called the Red Pineapple, described as "a little slice of boutique heaven with an Anthroplogie feel."(www.visitflorida.com) Be sure to visit the GTM Guana Reserve which is located close by. You can take leisurely nature walks on one of their many trails as well as visit the Environmental Education Center's exhibit hall. Caps on the Water is a fabulous, tucked away water-front restaurant, only about a five minute drive away from Driftwood. And if your in the mood for pizza, Vinny's Pizza in St. Augustine is the way to go! This agency was great to work with. Very timely, respectable communication and service! We plan on renting from them again!

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was totally accurate. The property was very clean and well maintained. Customer service was excellent. We made one phone call with a question and someone was back with us in a very few minutes. We would absolutely recommend this property to a friend. It is roomy and the arrangement is such that you can have all the privacy you want and all the togetherness as well. It is well equipped with everything you need and everything was in perfect working order. This is a beautiful property and we had a wonderful time!

Amazing house complete with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautifully remodeled and just steps from the ocean. We selected the house because it was such a short walk to the beach (I am 7+ months pregnant and we have a 2 year old) and it did not disappoint. The house is literally set up with everything you need for the week, especially if you have children. The kitchen items were perfect, lots of chairs and toys for the kids, high chairs, pack n play, baby gate, sound machine, etc. It far exceeded our expectations and we will be back for sure next year. Thank you for such a memorable getaway for our family!

Caps on the Water

"Driftwood" is direct oceanfront, located between the Atlantic ocean and the IntraCoastal Waterway. The beach is very private, peaceful, and quiet. No cars are allowed on the beach, and there are no high rises or fast food joints to interrupt your serenity. There are several excellent restaurants and shopping for every day items within a five minute drive! The Serenata Beach Club, with its 3 huge pools, work out facility, and activities for children, is just a mile away, and is available for temporary membership. St. Augustine is a 10 minute drive and offers plenty of attractions, great seafood, day spas, fun shopping, fishing and boating charters, many golf courses, including the World Golf Village, and more. In 15 minutes you can be in posh Ponte Vedra, with more great restaurants, shopping, and more golf! Day trips to Disney, Daytona Speedway, and Marineland are easy! However, Out of the Blue is so beautiful , with a great deck and beach that you may not want to leave the house!

Golf: There are many golf courses in the area. For the extreme golf fan, the World Golf Hall of Fame is 25 minutes away and features two world-class 18 hole courses. There are many public courses in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, and Jacksonville.
