Beautiful beachfront home. Perfect for 2 couples.

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable home. Layout was great for two couples. We were there just as hurricane Matthew was arriving. Hoping no serious damage done, as we'd love to return. We are hunting for a retirement home on the beach-if owners ever want to sell, this home is of great interest to us.

Awesome beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This house has a beautiful view of the ocean from the main living area. An upper deck to sit and enjoy your coffee, deck below with a private outdoor shower with hot water. Great layout with three bedrooms and three baths. The kitchen and baths were recently remodeled and were all very nice! Very comfortable for my family of four and two guests. South Ponte Vedra is a quiet beach, with no cars allowed. It's a classic! Will definitely be back!

Sophia's Magic Sandcastle!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my three girls and aunt to Sophia's Sandcastle for the week and here's the thing: it was perfect. I'm not a review writer but I was so impressed that I had to write one. Inside, it's well designed, clean, modern kitchen, great bathrooms, fun bunkbeds for the kids, killer master suite downstairs. Outside, it's pure magic. beach feels very private and tranquil: perfect sand, seashells, rolling waves, surf not rocky, cascades of pelicans gliding overhead, plenty of porch to enjoy it from if you're not feeling like getting sandy. Outdoor shower w hot water is super fun and private. Sea fishermen down the beach catching bluefish. Sun rises over the ocean every morning. Dolphins can be sited! It's the best. Recommend a baby gate for steep stairway inside and outside if youre traveling w toddlers. try Baby's Away for baby gear rental/delivery. Also there is a good grocery store nearby.

The waves are enough to surf, so I wouldnt let young kids into the ocean without an adult. in low tide you can walk fairly far out but tide comes in fast and is strong!

Nice home, great location, missing a few things though...

  • 4 of 5

We spent a nice week at this home. The location is fantastic, and walking out of the back of the home and right onto the beach was great. The house is nice, but is missing a few things that hold me back from a great review. Namely, the entire home is without a single dresser. Not one. So if living out of your suitcase doesn't annoy you you'll be fine. Personally, we would have liked to have been able to unpack. Also, we were fortunate that there were only 3 of us on this trip, and not the 8 that the house sleeps. There's hardly anywhere to sit comfortably in the living room. Just a couch that holds 3 people squeezed together and 2 uncomfortable wicker chairs. And the kitchen table seats 4. Again, for us, not a huge deal, but for more people it would be a real inconvenience. But again, overall, pretty nice place and we're glad we rented it. Quick note to the owners...may want to update the photos and details so as not to disappoint. The listing indicated a kayak (there wasn't one), and the photos show a nice wine refrigerator and a deck full of nice patio furniture. There is no wine fridge and half of the deck furniture shown is not here. Also, we had an issue with the air conditioning downstairs, but after a phone call to the rental folks it was seen to promptly and professionally. So 4 out of 5 stars for an enjoyable week.

Beautiful home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous mini-vacation in South Ponte Vedra at this house. The beach is gorgeous and we never got tired of the beautiful view and sound of the crashing waves.

The house is great for a family or 2 small families. We were very comfortable. Great open floor plan on main level (upstairs) with all windows on the ocean side. Nice deck, but it was a little chilly (January) so we didn't use it much. No crowds on the beach and there was room to play and walk even at high tide.

Great seafood nearby and the owners have a list of their favorite places. Only 20-25 minutes to downtown St. Augustine.

We will be going back soon.
