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. 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.

If you drive south for about 10 minutes you will be in historic St Augustine, "The Oldest City in America". In St. Augustine you can tour the original 400+ year old fort, take a horse and carriage tour or check out the shops on famous St George Street. St Augustine offers restaurants from a family style on a pier to quaint gourmet restaurants. There's plenty of family fun of sightseeing, dining, shopping and recreation in St Augustine.
If you drive north about 10 minutes you will find the upscale, Ponte Vedra; the home of PGA's TPC at Sawgrass, "Tournament Players Championship", where you can see IF you can hit the green or land in the water (like the pros) on the famous 17th "Island" green.
Besides world class golf, Ponte Vedra also has tennis and some of the finest restaurants in the country, including "Ruth's Chris".
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!
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.
