About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is a roomy, comfortable house, right on a very private family beach, that has been newly remodeled and renovated. It is a two-story home with four bedrooms (king, king, queen, and twins) and three bathrooms. Three bedrooms, with King, Queen and Twin beds and two bathrooms are located upstairs; the other King bedroom and bath, along with a large game room which has a sofa-bed, are located downstairs. The two floors provide a lot of common area space, which can be nice with even the closest of families (i.e. teenagers vs adults). It is perfect for the extended family, and can handle multiple generations with ease.

Outside, it's only a few steps to the beach. There are plenty of chairs and chaise lounges, a fenced in courtyard with gas grille, outside showers and covered area for some shade. Just a great beach location!

The fully equipped kitchen, living room, and upstairs master bedroom overlook the Atlantic Ocean; and a comfortable second floor deck overlooking the ocean can give guests a breathtaking view of the sunrise over the water. Perfect for sitting in the shade and watching the activities on the beach below.

The house is strategically located midway between prestigious Ponte Vedra and historic St. Augustine, which offers dining, shopping, and recreation for all. The house is bordered on the west by a nature preserve, and only single family, oceanfront homes as neighbors. This makes for a very uncrowded, relaxing, safe beach experience.

Please note that this is a non-smoking house, and does not allow pets. Also, the house may not be used as a venue for weddings, reunions, or other events hosting those not staying at the house. The person responsible for the rental must be at least 25 years old and staying at the house, and the maximum number of guests allowed is ten.

During the peak summer months, June, July, and August we only offer week-long Saturday to Saturday rentals. Also, there may be some other periods during special events where minimum stays or additional rates apply.

If you're within thirty days of your desired rental, call us about last-minute specials!

About The Owner

Tom Turnage was born and raised in Northeast Florida and is the owner of the Turnage Company, a design/build construction and remodeling company in Jacksonville. He purchased the house in 2003 as a fixer-upper and has extensively remodeled the house since purchase. He loves his beach house and uses it for both personal use and as an investment. He is active in the community and is the President of the SPV-Vilano Beach Restoration Association.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose South Ponte Vedra Beach

Tom grew up in Northeast Florida and resides in Jacksonville. went to beach often while growing up, now as an adult enjoys the area and appreciates the unique opportunities the area provides. The house is far enough away from our Jacksonville home to feel like we've gotten away, but is close enough to escape in the middle of the week even for a night.

What makes this house unique

Peace and Quiet. The house is located between Jacksonville Beach and St. Augustine. It is surrounded by Guana State Park and the closest public beach accesses are almost a mile away. Probably one of the least crowded beaches in Florida. It is a great for those who want to get away from the rat race, but still be close enough that golf courses and good restaurants are a short drive away.

Fantastic home for extended family

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing with our two children and three grandchildren for several years now. We all enjoy the beach, playing in the surf and shark tooth searches while walking the beach. The privacy along the beach was amazing and it was if we had our own private beach. The home exceeded any of our prior locations. First, to step out the covered back deck and place you toes in the sand was fabulous. We have always had quite a walk to get down to the beach but not here. The home fit all our needs nicely. Nanny loved the kitchen view of the ocean! Having the master suite with privacy was great for Nanny and Poppa. The master suite has breath taking sunrise views. Our daughters each had a room for themselves and husbands while the kids had a room to share that worked out very nicely for bedtime schedules. Our youngest daughter and her husband had the downstairs area to themselves. Having the privacy for a toddler and yet allowing everyone else the ability to not be concerned about the noise waking him from naps was a very big help. We had one small problem with the oven and Tom was there in no time to resolve the issue. Tom and Laura setup this home for meeting the extended family needs at every turn and we could not have been happier.

We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this property to anyone.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Tom’s beach house is perfectly situated enough out of town that the beach is relatively secluded but close enough that supplies are a quick drive away. The beach is beautiful and the ocean is a blast to play in. The house itself was ideal for our 3 generations. Gramma, daddy and 2 young adult children. It was clean with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and a kitchen with everything you need. Plenty of space to lounge, play board games or even shoot pool if you’ve had enough of the beach. (Yeah, right!) Tom was an amazing host and made sure there were all the incidentals we might need (paper goods, trash bags, soap, etc). I’d absolutely rent this house again should the opportunity to stay in st Augustine again present itself.

Location, location,...

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beach house for a week in April 2018. The location is just amazing; you cannot expect better place than South Ponte Vedra Beach. The sandy beach is a few steps away and whether you like to sun bath, play ball, hunt for shark teeth, build sand castles, or swim there is always something for everyone. The beach is very quiet with no public access in this area.

The house is very comfortable and well furnished. The 4 bedrooms can accommodate large families or friend reunions. Kitchen is also well equipped for cooking; outdoor barbecue is a nice addition.

St Augustine old town is approximately 20 minutes drive away, an easy ride to enjoy local restaurant, live music,...

We will be back. Many thanks to Tom for sharing his house and for his attention to details.

Quiet beach home perfect for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a pretty perfect stay at this home. Four bedrooms plus a pull-out couch we used for the kids. Kitchen was spacious and well-stocked for our family to cook every night on the grill. Sunrises were beautiful through the windows each morning, and the beach was only about 10 steps away. The best part for me was the quiet/private nature of the beach - no battling for space with other beachgoers. We were the only ones out there and could come and go all day.

We ranged in age from 1 year to 70 years old. It was the perfect home for all of us. Steps from the beach, so we could run upstairs for naps or snacks as needed. Every family got just enough privacy while still being together. I'd definitely recommend this home!

Note for the kids: bring water shoes! The beach is filled with beautiful shells. Lots of fun for the kids to collect, but mine had trouble walking on the shell-y sand without their water shoes.
