Voluntary isolation? Cold outside? We are still renting wonderful private beach homes! Why not enjoy the beach views, fresh air and natural sunlight from the privacy of your own beach home replete with an oceanfront yard, private deck / patio, fresh air and sunlight!
Did you know? You get natural Vitamin D from sunlight Harvard Medical School and it’s good for you! Did you know? The beach is good for our mental health: https://1md.org/article/beach-day-brain-benefits or Google, “studies of the therapeutic qualities of the beach for other interesting studies. It’s hard to beat the fresh air at the beach! IMPORTANT: Pleased be advised that the tumultuous hurricane seasons in the past two years damaged our new seawall. We didn’t have time to build a new seawall before turtle nesting season. You will notice that the seawall is no longer straight and suffered some damage. The erosion in the yard has been filled in. It now has a extended deck to the seawall with a fence around the perimeter. You will also have private steps down to the sand and ocean.
Please scroll to bottom for additional disclosures and minimum stay requirements!
This spacious private oceanfront home is located on a pristine stretch of Florida coastline midway between Ponte Vedra Beach and St Augustine. The theme of this vacation home rental is Family Fun on the oceanfront. Beachside Paradise has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Now sleeps a total of 7... 6 in beds, and 1 or 2 small children on the futon in the Master Bedroom.
The entire downstairs is the main living area with a very OPEN floor plan featuring a huge Family Room with fireplace, Dining Area and Kitchen; all with plenty of windows to enjoy the panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Just step through the glass doors onto the deck that includes covered (for a little shade) and open to enjoy the "rays". From there go down the steps and you are on the beach.
What a great life! Although technically not a private beach (the PEOPLE of the State of Florida owns the beach) it feels VERY private and pristine. The entire upstairs is the huge Master BR or Owner's Retreat complete with Jacuzzi tub and a private balcony to enjoy the view and ocean breezes. Imagine from your bed you can see the sun rise over the Atlantic, you step out on to your private balcony sipping your favorite coffee.

Daryl and Joan are the best. They are so helpful and kind. We didnt come to PVB last year and went to another beach because the home we wanted wasnt available. We will not go anywhere else again. We have rented with Vacation Quest for several years now and highly recommend.
Just so quiet and peaceful. The home is comfortable and was so super clean. The backyard is great for your pups and plenty big enough for them to run around. The views are amazing. Love this place!!

We have rented from Daryl several times. Joan is a great addition to the team. Both were super helpful to us and it is greatly appreciated. I cannot say enough about their commitment to customer service. The maintenance manager was extremely prompt on a minor issue and fixed it before we even thought it would be fixed. He was extremely polite and professional! We rented in another city last year (after storms the house we wanted was not available) and missed the location and this team's customer service so much we came back this year.
This house was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The furniture in the great room has been replaced with leather sofas which were very comfortable. Internet was quick and cable was great. The kitchen was well stocked and the yard was very clean and well-maintained. Plenty of beach items for your use. The upstairs deck off the master bedroom provides breathtaking views. We had never stayed at this property before, but we sure will again! I could not recommend more highly.
(MANAGER): You both are such GREAT guest! Always a pleasure to be your host. You already reserved for this coming year. We all look forward to your stay and we GREATLY appreciate your business! Thanks, Daryl and Team Quest

We have been staying with vacation quest for 5 years now. Daryl has always gone out of his way to make our vacation a wonderful experience. Anything we need or problems we may have, which have been few, he has taken care of them quickly.
The beach of south Ponte Vedra is so quiet and relaxing. Very few people. The house is comfortable, clean and well maintained. All you need to bring is clothing and food, then enjoy the beach without having to leave again. Bedding is nice, towels and beach towels, beach chairs and toys for making a sand castle. The fence in the grassy backyard is perfect for our fur babies. We will be returning.

The team was great from booking through checkout. No issues and very thorough in communications. Easy!!
The house and property were amazing. The view from the living room to the ocean is great. The house had everything we needed even beach chairs and toys. The fenced back yard was great and the kids loved running and playing back there. My little girl loves trying to catch lizzards off the fence. Short and well kept steps to the beach. All in all a great house, great beach, great time with family and friends.
MANAGER: Thank you VERY MUCH! I'd love to see a video of your little girl trying to catch the lizards :-) Thanks, Daryl
