About Laura

As an avid traveler myself, I have often used VRBO and had wonderful adventures that far exceed the typical hotel experience. You get far more for your money! I have equipped my home to make a get-away as convenient and stress free as possible with a fully equipped kitchen, hair dryers, plenty of towels including beach, beach chairs, grill on deck, notebook filled with best spots to eat or get a massage! Different from the run-of-the-mill overcrowded,high rise,putt putt infested,condo after condo...this community is tranquil with the tallest building a 2 story lodge and is predominantly private homes, golf courses and tennis haven. I chose it for the 2 acre private setting...rare at any beach town. I plan to hand this down to generations through my four grown children and keep this gem in the family.

Laura purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Laura chose St. Augustine Area

When looking for a house near the ocean, my neighbor, a Florida cracker born and raised here said to me..'you, my dear, are getting the last little piece of heaven in Ponte Vedra Beach!' When I want rest and relaxation, I don't want fast food restaurants on every corner and congested traffic. I chose this due to the tranquil setting, the feeling of a retreat home rather than just a house, the gorgeous giant Oaks and location that feels a million miles from anything but is in reality minutes from everything I could possibly need....good nutritious food, fun local coffee house, local hardware store, exercise and spas and the finest restaurants on par with Charleston, NYC and New Orleans!

What makes this cottage unique

Sit on the front porch swing and see the lifelong pair of hawks, the rafter of wild turkeys that strut through daily, all types of birds and if lucky....you will hear but may see the white barn owl who claims ownership to this land. I enjoyed completely renovating this 1980's loghouse updating with all new appliances, a real tin roof to hear the pitter patter of rain, a gorgeous stone fireplace for a romantic evening or reading by the fire,a visit to the bike shop just a jaunt down the street to rent a bike and ride along the beach homes of Ponte Vedra (15 mph!) or down along the Guana Preserve. Walk for miles on the beach and it is quite possible you will have the beach to yourself most of the walk!

Fabulous Florida retreat

  • 5 of 5

The owner and this location allowed me and my family to have a fantastic reunion. My nephew got married in Jacksonville and we all wanted to stay together to visit. We represented Alabama, Nevada, California and Arizona. All came together in this cabin snuggled in a very lovely quite neighborhood. Minutes to everything yet away from all the hassle and bustle. The moss hangs in the trees providing a fabulous canopy for the property. Just beautiful.

The owner was VERY responsive throughout the planning. She also was available if needed during our stay. I can't wait to return to this lovely gem!

Our stay was way to short to fully enjoy this awesome location. Tucked back in a wooded hide away, this home embodied tranquility, relaxation and rejuvenation. From the front porch swing to the awesome, eclectic decor we were blown away and immediately started planning a return visit. Seconds from the beach and golf this home was much more than we anticipated. Would actually like to give this rental a 10 out of 10! Recommend this rental to anyone looking for a restful, relaxing environment that provides the illusion of off-grid life thoughtfully interwoven with nature while being totally connected. Thanks Laura, looking forward to visiting again!

Most lovely serence experience!! Cant wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

The log house is even more charming than its' pictures. I LOVED the modern kitchen and cooking on the charcoal grill on the back deck. Beautiful views on both the front and back porch where we saw several deer and birds. We loved how close it was to the beach and grocery, restaurants, etc.

The owner was very helpful with answering all of our questions and helping us with everything we needed. We can't wait to come back!

Fabulous Amenities and Location so close to PV Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This has been the best VRBO experience - everything went as planned and then much more! Laura has been extremely responsive and going above and beyond to ensure that my family's visit to Ponte Vedra Beach was fantastic. Laura answered my emails very quickly and that was appreciated. Three bedrooms ( huge master suite) upstairs along with 1 full bath. Separate HVAC thermostats upstairs and downstairs. The other full bath is downstairs so that was very convenient while we were lounging there.

The house is clean, fully stocked with all sorts of kitchen appliances, plates, utensils, glassware, first class linens, gas grill, washer, dryer, etc… The house has plenty of room to relax including a great swing on the front porch and another fun swing in the indoor back sunroom too. It is very cozy and well decorated.

The beach is just down Mickler's Road and the Preserve beaches a short drive away. Games, books, fireplace, plus a very safe and pretty neighborhood for strolls. The size of the house's lot is large and peaceful- plenty of parking spaces and it is well lit at night.

Great restaurants in the area ( really enjoyed Palm Valley Fish Camp- but make advance reservations) Beach Diner sounded great but we decided to cook breakfast and relax at the house instead. Publix is not far away for picking up groceries.

On the way from Jacksonville, we stopped in Atlantic Beach ( go to Two Dudes Seafood) and then one day we went south to St. Augustine. ( enjoy Hyppo Gourmet popsicles) Both are easy drives and fun to explore.

Thank you Laura for our great adventure- we hope to return again!

We have stayed in five places in this area. By far, this was the best. The house was very well equipped, extremely clean when we arrived, the owner was very responsive when there were any questions. I love the location, it is quiet, very lovely. The house is comfortable, unique and scenic. Definitely pet friendly which makes a huge difference to us.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the log cabin for a few days to visit with family. It was an enjoyable stay! The location was perfectly nestled between the calm of the Guana River and the necessities offered by Ponte Vedra (restaurants, beach, shopping, etc.). The cabin itself is very cozy and accommodating. I will be definitely keeping this place on my list of places to stay again!

Modernized loghouse nestled among giant Florida Oaks set back on 2 acres of private, tranquil grounds and only 3 miles to entrance of TPC tournament. This is a total get-away from the stressors of everyday life! Swing on the front porch and listen to nature. Not unusual to see a rafter of wild turkeys strutting through or beautiful deer grazing. This spot gives the feeling of being far away yet is convenient to everything in town. Bike rentals are a few minutes walk from the house and only minutes to the beach. This is a very private beach as the Guana National Preserve begins and is 15 miles of undeveloped beaches! Some enjoy horseback riding on the beach. Minutes from Fresh Market, Starbucks, breakfast diner, and 5 star restaurants!
