Ponte Vedra is a golfer's paradise featuring the PGA Tour HQ, THE PLAYERS Championship and elegant seaside resorts and dining.
Hurricane Policy: This part of Florida historically has fewer
hurricanes than almost anywhere else. However, if a mandatory
evacuation order is issued during the rental period that would apply
to our section of St. Johns County, we will refund ALL your rental
fee for that week; unless order is issued for the day of your
planned departure. If your rental period is longer than one week, this would
apply only to the week it occurs or subsequent weeks if the house cannot be occupied.
About the Owner
(17 traveler reviews)
This house is absolutely wonderful. The owners have done a terrific job of making you feel welcome. Everything you could possibly want is provided, including beach towels! The layout of the home is perfect with a bathroom on each floor, everyone has their privacy. We had a great vacation and plan to return next year.
winter's past perfection
We've stayed in many rentals over the years, and none have compared to the beauty and comfort of Winter's Past. The decor is charming and very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, the views are spectacular. Our children and grandchildren loved everything about our visit. Joe and Suzanne could not have been more accommodating. I would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a great vacation.
Another wonderful trip with my girlfriends!
Every year a group of friends stays at this wonderful beach house. We love the setting; we love the whimsical decorations; we love the view; and the house has everything you could possible need for a weeks stay except groceries. Everything that was promised in the description was there - and more. The house was clean as can be and everything was in perfect working order. I know I sound over-the-top about this vacation house, but we wouldn't keep coming back if it weren't so ideal. We love going into St. Augustine and shopping in the quaint shops and going to the outlet malls. To be able to look out your back door and see the sun rising over the ocean, hear the waves hitting against the sand - it just doesn't get any better.
Perfect Beach Vacation
This was one of the nicest beach houses we have ever rented. My family of adult children and grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed everything about this house. The location was perfect for beach activities, trips into St. Augustine, and family friendly local restaurants. The owners made our stay even better than most, prooviding ample beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, and even kites for the children to fly on the beach. The Seranata Beach Club eas an added plus for the pool and the workout activities. You cannot go wrong in renting this house. It will accommodate 10 people easily.
The Waggoner Family
what a wonderful home and place to stay. Walk out door to the beach, drink your coffee on the deck or in a room with the view of the ocean. Clean with all you need. The owner was great from the first contact up to the date we departed. This is a place we will go back to.This is a place I would recommend.
The Waggoner Family
We enjoyed a lovely week in your house; "we" being 2 parents, 2 young adults, 2 college students, and 2 high schoolers, with dogs. Every summer we have a family week at the beaches near St. Augustine...this was the best by far. Beautiful house, unbelievable beach, great food...perfect in every way. We will be back for sure!
