About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12

At White Heron Beach House, our oceanfront house on Ponte Vedra Beach, you feel as though you're in command of a gorgeous private beach, with rich dunes, sparkling waves, and soft sand. Bring the whole group to this family home and vacation in style!

White Heron Beach House sits right on the dunes overlooking the wide, unspoiled sands of the beach. There are wonderful views from many rooms in the house, as well as from our big second-story deck and first-story patio. And these aren't glimpses -- they're sweeping panoramic vistas that put on a show every morning at dawn!

The second-story deck is one of our favorite places, and we think it will be yours too. Located just off the living room, it offers tables, safety rail, and outdoor staircase right down to the dunes. There's plenty of space here for sunbathing, reading, bird-watching, or even using your electronics (you have free wireless Internet at White Heron Beach House). Let the murmur of the waves and the smell of the salty sea breeze restore your spirit out here!

Just in from the sundeck, the living room is another great place for the whole group to gather. Here you'll find a new HDTV with cable, DVD player, and all the trimmings. Watching a movie here is almost like being in the theater -- so before you go to bed one night, cue up The Jungle Book and let the kids wake up as early as they like to watch it, while the adults snooze for another couple hours. Isn't vacation wonderful?!

The ocean views from the living room are lovely, but the dining room offers even more exciting vistas. Our cozy round table is inset in an alcove ringed with long, sunny windows. One look at the beach outside, and you'll be hard pressed to get anyone to eat any breakfast. Another day of adventures has begun!

There are 4 bedrooms at White Heron Beach House, so everyone has a great place to stretch out. There are two bedrooms with king beds

The third and fourth bedroom offers 2 queen beds each - so you can sleep up to 4 kids in each bedroom.!

You'll love how remote White Heron Beach House feels, even though it's very close to the main road and convenient to both St. Augustine and Palm Coast. A private set of steps leads you down from the dune onto the soft sands, which are perfect for everything from sandcastle-building to sunbathing. Dolphins swim by our beach, and many types of birds are constant visitors. At any time of day, it's simply wonderful here!

And at White Heron Beach House, we've tried to anticipate everything you need for your stay. We provide all the linens, pillows, blankets, and towel sets for every bedroom and bathroom, and our washer and dryer are at your disposal. You'll find beach toys of every description -- feel free to enjoy them. We want you to make this your Ponte Vedra home-away-from-home, and we know that once you stay at White Heron Beach House, you'll be certain to return! Make plans to see visit soon!

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

Wonderful four generation beach vacation in Condo 851...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week of vacation at Cinnamon Beach. We had four generations staying in the condo and never felt crowded, including two toddlers, my wonderful grandchildren. The condo was spacious and well equipped, especially the kitchen. I would like to point out that there is NO sofa sleeper as the description indicates, fortunately we brought a queen blowup sleeper so it was not a problem for us, but could be for someone expecting a sofa sleeper. Overall, the unit was clean, but there was a lot of dust and I believe the palm tree in the dining room has not been dusted in quite some time; it has a lot of dust on the leaves. The master bath shower stall is in need of a good bleaching, I don't like to see mold when I am showering--no one does! Generally, I am not one to complain, but to pay a $165.00 cleaning fee and I need to wipe the kitchen counters off before use, because of sand and grit, really shouldn't happen. I will say though, none of the above issues would preclude us staying in this unit again, it was beautifully furnished and the view from the balcony was fantastic, not to mention the size of balcony--it's huge. The unit still deserves the five stars I gave it and then some. The walk to the pools and beach was short--our grandchildren loved the walk in pool and children's pool/slide area. We spent many hours at the pool, there is plenty of shade and cover when you need a break from the sun. The beach was great and we never encountered any rocks as indicated by some other reviewers. <br/>We saw many dolphins every day from the balcony--just delightful--binoculars help bring them up close and personal for viewing. We had no problem with stripping the beds and getting wash started for the cleaning crew as to help get the next folks in by 3:00, along with disposing of all of our trash. Steve Milo and team make it perfectly clear it's not required, an only if you want to suggestion. There is ample parking and we encountered no wait at the Guar

Conveniente location, ocean front, clean and spacious

  • 3 of 5

The house is comfortable for a vacation with family and friends. With private access to the beach. It is great to enjoy the ocean view and the outside.

We enjoyed our stay there.

The house is a bit dated and would need a change of carpet in the bedrooms. Also the dishware needs update.

Loved the location but the house needs some work!

  • 2 of 5

We loved the location but the house needs a good deep cleaning and...

The two bedrooms that had the king size beds smelled of mold and mildew. One of the beds did not have a mattress cover on it that made it uncomfortable. There were NO screens on almost all the windows so if we wanted to air it out bugs got in!

At least one of the ceiling fans was so loud and rickety that we were scared to put it on.

Most of the remotes did not work that were in the bedrooms and the DVD player in the living room did not work and almost ate our DVD we put in!

We could have used a few more dish towels and some of the dishes were dirty. We rinsed out most of them because they felt like they were dirty and some had dried food on them so we ended cleaning most of what we used before we used them.

The lock box needs to be updated! It took use at least 10 to 15 minutes to get it to open up so we could get the key!

The most important thing was that there were nails all over the patio and around the grounds! We picked up at least a dozen of them! One of us actually stepped on one! Thank God we were wearing shoes! What bugs us the most is that we had a 2 year old there and if she would have stepped on them she would have been really hurt!

We would like to ask for some kind of reimbursement! We paid a lot to be at this house and we think that it was not what we paid for!

We also recommend that you have some paperwork in the house explaining about the house and area and about the trash (what can and can not be recycled). There was nothing!

5 stars

  • 5 of 5

Loved our vacation time at the White Heron. We scheduled for a month but had to leave early due to hurricane Irma, such a bummer. White Heron was awesome, so close to the beach and the house was perfect. Enjoyed having family with us and plenty of room for everyone. Space underneath house was great for cooking out and laying in hammocks and looking out on the ocean. Would definitely go back but not sure if the hurricane did any damage😢Hope not

Relaxing vacation

  • 3 of 5

Despite the dated accomodations, this beach house offered us just what we needed: an affordable stay on the ocean. The proximity couldnt have been better. Our party of 12 had a tight but tolerable fit in the 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house. The kitchen was used daily and could have used a better variety of cookware and utensils. The mattresses were rather uncomfortable and the carpet stained. The deck furniture is in definite need of replacement. Most of our time was spent on the beach, so we had little time to complain about the lack of amenities. Certainly not a 5 star rental home, but suitable for a cheaper vacation.

This rental was filthy. We would never recommend or stay here again.

  • 1 of 5

Zero stars was not an option!!!!!! Pillows and bedding were stained and old. They were so nasty that we went to Target and purchased new sheets and pillows to use while we were there. The carpet needs replaced and the entire house smelled of mold and mildew. It's probably because part of the roof was missing shingles and had water damage. The deck furniture was so dirty that no one could even sit outside to enjoy the beach. The only beach chairs provided were plastic $5 cheap chairs from Walmart. Normally we would bring these items with us, but we flew there so we were forced to use what was there. We paid $4000 to rent for the week and it was the biggest waste of money ever!!! Even if someone said we could stay for FREE I would say NO!!!!
