This 3500 S.F. 5-bedroom / 3-bathroom home is located on one of the most PRIVATE BEACHES in Florida, Another Day in Paradise lives up to its name. There is no public parking nearby, so the only people you are likely to see are either owners or other people renting a beach home. NO driving on the beach like in St. Augustine Beach. The sounds that you will hear is the waves breaking on shore, seabirds or your family and friends.
If you have previously been a guest at Another Day in Paradise…. You MUST see it now! The kitchen has a beautiful new stove, oven and microwave. So many beach views and now most of the windows and glass doors facing the beach are brand new! The deck is new, but the best part is the railing! Of course, it is safe and now it is nearly invisible, so it doesn’t block the views of the Great Atlantic Ocean!
“Paradise” sleeps up to 12 people in beds PLUS a “day-bed” in the living room next to one of the windows that overlook the beach. Can you imagine waking up to a beautiful oceanfront sunrise every morning? That’s the best way anyone could start their day!
On the outside you will notice the new “cedar shake style” concrete siding for a traditional beach look AND a new architectural shingle roof. Under the outside steps that lead to the upstairs deck you will find a new “dressing area” near the current outside shower.
Pets? Yes, Another Day in Paradise is “pet friendly”, the fully fenced back and side yards is perfect for the family dog. However, all pets must be preapproved by Vacation Quest based on breed, size, age and training. Afterall, “Fido” is part of the family too. If you do want to bring your pet dog, there is a nonrefundable pet fee.
Some of the amenities include 3 High Definition TV’s. The large flat screen TV in the Living Room has a Blu-Ray Player. The large flat screen TV downstairs has a DVD Player. Also included is a stereo system that can accept your iPod. Of course, high speed WIFI internet service and a land line with free long-distance service in the contiguous United States. There is a 77,000 federal nature reserve across the street, west of the home, so the cell towers are limited. Sometimes the cell phone service maybe somewhat limited too.
As soon as you enter the foyer, you see the large living room that is perfectly furnished for your vacation enjoyment. Fantastic high ceilings and floor to ceilings windows let you enjoy the marvels of nature all with in the comfort of the home.
The magnificent owner's suite, we call the "Balinese Room" is on the left. The Balinese Room will take you away to the islands. Decorated and complete with a king-sized bed, flat screen TV and a private balcony. The bath area has a huge Jacuzzi tub for two where you can look across the bedroom at the view. A separate large walk-in shower, two vanity sinks and a private "water closet" complete this beautiful island room.
To the right of the huge living area is the perfect kitchen complete with ample granite counters, a stainless refrigerator / freezer with ice maker, stove, oven, and all of the small appliances that you would expect in a well equipped kitchen all with amazing views of the private deck and beach. Enjoy snacks from the breakfast bar or while sitting at the "table for two" at the window with the views.
Just past the kitchen is the over-sized dining room that easily sits eight adults at the main table. Of course, the dining room has more great views of the beach / ocean. The entire family can enjoy some quality time while savoring the "meal of the day", watching the pelicans flying in perfect formation and the dolphins jumping in and out of the water playing in the surf.
Adjacent to the dining room is bedroom number 2, better known as the "Seashell Room". The Seashell Room features a full wall of shelves with all sorts of nature's best seashells and beautiful renderings of St. Augustine and the islands. This suite boasts a queen size bed and a private bath, complete with a glass enclosed walk-in shower. Use the beautiful barn doors to close off this room for a wonderful retreat.
Accessed from the living room and dining rooms is the massive private deck with amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean, with plenty of room for all. The sun worshipers can bask in the Florida sun on the lounge chairs, while those that may be a little shy around the big yellow ball in the sky can use the chairs under the covered parts of the deck. NOW ALL NEW: the railing is nearly invisible, yet safe for the little ones and / or pets too.
Steps in the foyer lead to the downstairs area where you will find three more bedrooms and another FULL bathroom. To the left you will find bedroom number 3 that we call, the "Sunshine Room". It is a bright yellow cheerful room with lots of windows. The mirrored sunbursts on the wall over each of the two twin beds shine bright during the day from the sunlight. The door leads to the privacy fenced yard and covered deck for you to watch the kids and maybe grownups frolic and play.
To the right of the Sunshine Room is a full bathroom, complete with a beautiful marble vanity and shower tub combination.
Then right of the bathroom is bedroom number 4 that we call, "The Coral Room". The Coral Room is decorated with a wonderful piece of white coral on the dresser. The Coral Room has a queen sized bed, plenty of closet space and access to the covered porch and back yard.
Then, past the laundry room is bedroom number 5 that we call, "The Cottage by the Sea Room" or for short, "The Cottage". The Cottage is spacious with a queen-sized bed and a bunk bed (upper and lower twin beds). This gracious space is great for the kids and teens to run in out of the privately fenced yard with access to the wonderful beach. The Cottage has a large flat screen TV and lots of space to spread out for children's games and other activates. Are you a nature lover? If so, you will love this place even more. Year round you can see the porpoises / dolphins having fun playing in the surf, frolicking and putting on a free show. In the late spring and summer, you are likely to see Sea Turtles’ Nests. They will be “taped off” by State of Florida officials. Sea Turtles are endangered and protected by state and federal law, so look from a distance. In the winter months you could see another endangered species, the Right Whale.
This amazing home is located of a pristine stretch of beach on “Florida’s First Coast”, known as South Ponte Vedra Beach. Due to its unique location with a 74,000 acre National Nature Preserve known as GMT (locals still call it Guana Park) across the street and a few single family beach homes on the east side of A1A, you will think that you have your very own private beach. The best of all worlds, beautiful home, nearly private beach and still only a few minutes’ drive to restaurants, fun activities and attractions.
