About Ellie Cuthrell, reservation manager

This is a dream come true. We have always wanted a beach cottage and this is more than we ever dreamed about. We are still pinching ourselves. The views are spectacular. The home is cozy but spaciously open. The deck is an extension of the home where we can watch the multiple birds and ever changing surf. Our roof top deck is amazing. The ocean on one side and Guana State Park on the other. We are in Paradise. Come stay and you will feel as we do.

Ellie Cuthrell, reservation manager purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Ellie Cuthrell, reservation manager chose South Ponte Vedra Beach

We have seclusion and a very private beach, yet we are minutes to Ponte Vedra or historic St Augustine. We feel we are on an island yet know we have civilization and a closeness for dinners out, various sports activities including the many golf courses, shopping, etc.. We can be private or social....our choice!! You can also.

Winter Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Even though the weather did not cooperate during our stay, we were able to enjoy most that the house and area had to offer.

Picture perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 vacationed in the Ponte Vedra/St. Augustine area in November. This beautiful beach house did not disappoint, we had such an incredible stay. The beach being just outside the door offered us an experience of a lifetime. We had our coffee on the deck each morning and marveled over how lucky we were to have found such a gem. The house is impeccably decorated and kept up. The master bedroom and bathroom in particular are so lovely. It was wonderful to have another bathroom with a tub for bathing the kids. We cooked a number of times in the house and the kitchen was fully stocked and we had no issues. The outdoor shower and hose for washing sand from your feet on the deck were so helpful with our children. There were beach chairs in the garage and beach towels in baskets at every door leading outside. It felt like every detail had been thought of. All in all we just felt like we were in paradise for 5 days, the most relaxing vacation with an 8, 5, and 2 year old possible. The children experiencing the ocean for the first time was magical. We spent as much time as possible on the beach, building sandcastles and collecting shells. Ellie was super responsive and everything to do with the coordination of our stay, check in, check out, all was so smooth. Truly, my husband and I kept saying to each other “We need to come back here every year.” Thank you for everything!!

Exceptional as always!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVE this place. It is our home away from home. We visit the Dreamkeeper every year. Ellie the manager is the 'hostess with the mostest' always if you need anything. The home is right on the beach. Private no drive beach, amazing house! Has a back deck, side deck, and a roof deck. Fully stocked kitchen, grill, games, beach toys, boogie boards, chairs, towels...everything. St. Augustine is beyond words and only a 15min drive or Uber from the house. So far we have seen the dolphins every time! Have yet to find a better vacation home.

Ellie was the BEST to work with!

  • 4 of 5

The views from the home of the ocean are stunning. There was some landscaping damage due to Irma but nothing that stopped us from relaxing on the backyard deck. The beds were comfortable. But, the home needs some updating a really good cleaning. Ellie was so wonderful to work with that I felt comfortable enough to tell her. And, I'm sure my concerns were addressed. Ellie also kept us update on the condition of the home and area during Irma. I have rented many homes and Ellie is by far the most professional rental agent I have worked with.

Owner's Response: What a lovely guest Lynn was and I do wish we could have had it perfect for her expectations. This was shortly after the hurricane, Irma. and getting help was extremely difficult as there was a great deal of devastation with so many less fortunate than DreamKeeper. Our home was without electricity for about 6 days. We had no water instrusion except on the yard. After the storm, when the shutters were dismantled and the electricity was on, we still had stormy weather. The home was not in the great clean shape we like after being closed up, but we were so, so appreciative that water and debris did not come into the home. Our cleaners and handyman were very busy taking care of the less fortunate, so we got minimal help and I understood why. More people needed help than we did. I appreciate everyone's input as the owner and i , with a short turn around time, sometimes can overlook what needs to be done, though I am there every turnover. Thanks you.to all who have stayed at DreamKeeper. We have had nothing but fabulous renters who treat our home as their own while enjoying the views, the location and the surf and sand. Ellie, Reservation Manager.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This beach home is perfect! It has everything you could want or need for a nice relaxing vacation. The main reason I booked this home was the amazing views and closeness to the ocean. Those views did not dissapoint! The inside of the home is furnished nicely with plenty of rooms and places to sit and relax. The kitchen has all the appliances and utensils that you could ever need plus more! The owner (Ellie) was nothing short of amazing and helpful. She promptly answered an emails before and during my stay. She does everything she can to do make your vacation the best it's can be. 100% recommend this home to anyway looking for a relaxing vacation.
