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, 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.

This spacious private oceanfront home is located on a pristine stretch of Florida coastline midway between Ponte Vedra Beach and St Augustine.

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.

MANAGER: Thank YOU very much! I agree, the back yard is great for children to safely play. By the way, we have gotten quotes to update /replace the deck. I agree, it works fine and is safe; now it is getting time to update and schedule between our guests' vacations.

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)

MANAGER: Oh MY!! You very kind words means the world to me! Thank YOU!! Daryl
The Beachside Paradise house was just that. Loved the house and the location. Will definitely book this house again. The house was clean, fully stocked and the location was perfect. In addition, there was a fenced yard for my dog which was great for both him and me. Loved this house!

MANAGER: Oh my GOODNESS!! The "Team" and I all work very hard and we LOVE what we do. The BEST part is when our guests have a GREAT experience AND tell us about the experience! Thank YOU, Daryl (Manager)
Our stay at Beachside Paradise was absolutely delightful! Being directly on the ocean was PERFECT and having the fenced yard for our dog and our grandchildren made our stay worry free. You couldn't ask for a better beach location or a better rental team to work with. The house is extremely well stocked upon arrival. We have stayed at many vacation rental homes and this one outshines them all! We'll be returning as soon as possible. Check in and check out was a breeze!
MANAGER: Thank YOU for all of the very kind comments. The "Team" is very proud and pleased that you had a GREAT experience. You were NOT joking, I see that you have already made reservations for next year AND staying an additional week too! Thank YOU and we all appreciate your business, Daryl (Manager) and The Quest Team

Daryl was very friendly. He responded promptly to every call and was very knowledgeable .....providing answers to all my questions.
The open floor plan and view of beach was wonderful. Even when it rained, you felt like you were right there outside on the beach since there was essentially a wall of glass windows facing ocean. The dual shower heads in both the upstairs and downstairs bathrooms was a bonus. In addition, there kitchen had everything. I had bought some pots and other serving utensils and did not need to use. the towels were the best in any house rental. Big and plush. The blankets were also very clean and comfortable. I really have nothing negative to say about beachside paradise! Can't wait to go back for a longer stay!

we only spoke with Daryl who was excellent. he was always cheerfull and he replied to our questions or concerns in a timely manner. We left something at this residence and Daryl graciously said he would sent it to us in the mail, saving us the trip back to st. augustine to pick it up. We would definitely contact Daryl on any future stays in St Augustine.
