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, but we still had to move the backyard fence inland about 7 or 8 feet, which is still a nice sized backyard. You will also have private steps down the 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 9... 6 in beds, 2 on the pull out sofa and 1 on the futon in the Master Bedroom.
NOW, just added a brand new 47 inch 1080p HD Flat Screen TV!
Not only is Beachside Paradise pet friendly, it also has a FENCED backyard!
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 (about 6 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.

You will find the casually furnishings are comfortable and perfect for the beach relaxing or spending time with family. It's an oceanfront vacation experience you'll never forget. Enjoy "Beachside Paradise", the perfect Florida beach vacation!

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

Daryl was very helpful with payment plans, information, etc. There were not questions upon check in and check out.
The house was wonderful. We truly enjoyed our time romping on the beach. The kids and dogs were exhausted at the end of the day after playing in the sand and surf. The best feature was knowing our dogs and kids were safe in the fenced in backyard.
MANAGER: Thank YOU and I truly appreciate your fantastic suggestions, we hope to see you back and see your suggestions in place. Thank YOU!! Daryl (Manager)
