Seaside Escape, nestled on a high beach dune is waiting for your arrival. Since there are only a few neighbors nearby allows you to enjoy our privacy, it like having your own piece of the beach. The views from sitting high up on the dunes are stunning!
As you enter this truly beachy home, walk upstairs to the main living area. This large open floor plan is perfect for the family to enjoy the conversations, each other and the spectacular views of the Atlantic.
The living room/dining room hosts large windows and sliding glass doors that lead to the wonderful deck. The ocean front deck runs the length of this vacation home, with a large (144 SF) landing and a walkway all the way to the beach. There is a shower on the landing to rinse off after a swim. Enjoy the round 4-seat dining table with umbrella, or the many loungers and chairs. Enjoy your morning coffee while looking for the playful dolphins or watch the sunset with a fruity drink.
The living room allows the family comfortable seating while listening to music on the entertainment center and enjoying the stone fireplace. Disclaimer the fireplace is only for looks as it does not work.
The dining room has a large table to enjoy the views while enjoying your meals cooked in our fully equipped kitchen.
The fully equipped kitchen you say, yes beside the regular appliances, you can enjoy as much ice as you would like in your drinks or to keep you drinks cold in the cooler on the beach, with a built in ice machine next to the refrigerator. It also has some items that you might need throughout your stay that you didn’t think to bring. If you have leftovers there is plastic wrap and aluminum foil for your use. Wanting breakfast, how about waffles, with the waffle maker the delicious waffles could be for breakfast. However, waffles are not only for breakfast, chicken and waffles for dinner or add ice cream for dessert. Speaking of dinner, how about set it and forget it in the crockpot while relaxing on the beach. You can enjoy these meals not only in the dining room but the bar in the kitchen with stools for seating or the cozy two-person table next to the kitchen.
Off the dining room the master en-suite. The king size bed calls to you, allowing you deep sleep. The sliding glass doors not only allow you access to the deck and will let you wake up to the beautiful Florida sunshine. The master bathroom has a shower/tub combination and a single sink.
The second bedroom is perfect for the kids. Two twin size beds and sliding glass doors that lead out to the deck is waiting for their arrival. Next to the bedroom is the hallway bathroom for them to use.
We did say this was a 3 bedroom home…. The private 3rd bedroom is downstairs and across the garage. This is perfect for another couple or the teenagers that do not want to be around the adults. The queen size bed and the futon allow up to 3 guests to enjoy the bedroom and a full bathroom. There is also a wall mounted flat screen TV.
The washer and dryer are located off the dining room and next to kitchen.
During our “peak season” from Memorial to Labor Day Weekend we DO REQUIRE a 7 night minimum stay AND we require a Saturday arrival and a Saturday departure. Other than some holidays Seaside Escape does not require you to stay a full week AND you to arrive on a certain day of the week.
Bedroom Number 3 (Queen bed and futon) This bedroom is DOWNSTAIRS, separate from the "main" living area of the home. The main living area, BR #1 and BR #2 are all upstairs, however the third bedroom is downstairs. BR 3 ingress and egress is downstairs to foyer, then across the garage to a private bedroom (and full bathroom). You do NOT have to go outside to enter or exit this bedroom/bathroom. However, here is also a door to the outside via a door on the south side of the home.
The South Ponte Vedra Dune Restoration has been completed as of June 9th, 2022. The state of Florida asks that you please stay off the dunes where the sea oats have been freshly planted.

Working with the VacationQuest team was so easy. Very professional and kept you informed every step along the way to know your reservation was secure, that payments had been received, along with perfect directions to the property, how to gain entry. Their professionalism made it a very 'uncomplicated' process for me.
MANAGER: Making the process "uncomplicated" is exactly what we are aiming for! Thank YOU! You made everyone's day at Vacation Quest! Thanks Again!
We loved the house! Very private with the undeveloped lots on either side. Plenty of room, everything was clean and in good working condition. Lots of pots, pans, dishes - everything & more in the kitchen. Parking was plentiful, which has been a problem at other beach property we have stayed at. Furniture very nice & comfortable. The back deck was great, chairs very comfortable and it was wonderful that the last step was actually in the sand on the beach. The screened in porch in the back was very nice. We loved the keyless entry system & not trying to keep up with door keys - any of us could get in at any time & no one had to be there to let us in. I especially liked sitting on the deck off the master bedroom in the morning, in the shade, and watching all the birds, butterflies & lizards in the front yard, which was immaculately taken care of. We eve!n had a bright tree tree frog join us on the deck one morning! We will definitely try to rent this property again on our next trip to South Ponte Vedra!
MANAGER: Thank YOU for the very nice review, we all look forward to your return visit!

Great staff, excellent communications, courteous and friendly.
The property was better than expected and very well appointed. Almost thought we were at our own home with what was available to us to use during our stay. We will be contacting Vacation Quest first for all our future vacation rentals!
MANAGER: Well, thank YOU so VERY much! We look forward to seeing you again next year!

Working with Daryl, the property manager, was a pleasure. All details and questions were responded to immediately and he was very helpful with additional requests. All check in information was sent promptly in time for arrival date and payment was handled smoothly. The rental policies are exceptionally lenient regarding friends and family visits which definitely enhanced our stay. The owner obviously tries very hard to accommodate each guest to make their stay as enjoyable as possible. Very impressive experience!
The property was exactly as it had been described with no hidden surprises. Atmosphere is very relaxing with extremely private beach and great outdoor space with decks surrounding most of the house. The floor plan is very open with fantastic views from every room!
The two upstairs bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house with baths which gives each guest sufficient privacy. The home is very well equipped with all necessities and guests are encouraged to use the outside amenities as well. The location is ideal for a private beach getaway yet is a short distance to everything the St. Augustine/Jacksonville area has to offer. The Guana Reserve right across the street has a lot to offer for outdoor activities and enjoying nature. Golfers will love the PGA Tournament Greens at the Sawgrass Golf Club just a few miles from the beach house. This home and it's location are the best of both worlds. Whatever your interests are, you will find it here! Loved every minute of our month long stay! Highly recommend it!
MANAGER: You made my day and MUCH MORE!! Thank YOU! I will make sure that the owner sees your review! She has worked very hard for nice people like you to have a GREAT vacation experience! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Thanks, Daryl

MANAGER: We appreciate the kind comments and hope to see you back again soon... Thanks for the info, a new mattress is ordered and will be ready for your return! Thank YOU!

Team was very accommodating. On the night we arrived, we couldn't find any sheets for the futon and pullout couch. We left a message at the office and received a call back within just a few minutes. They were unable to reach the owners of property, so Laurie brought us sheets from her own house!
Beautiful, well equipped, comfortable home. The ocean is right off the deck -- it felt like a cruise! Staff was responsive and friendly. All six in our group said "best vacation ever!"

Our questions about the property prior to rental were promptly answered. Getting things finalized was quick and easy.
A perfect place for a relaxing vacation on the beach! We had everything we needed at the house but also close to town (handy to run in and get fresh seafood to cook for dinner). Liked that we didn't need to bring any beach gear (chairs, boogie boards, towels). We would definitely stay here again!

We have been vacationing in South Ponte Vedra for over 30 years. This is the third time we have rented through Vacation Quest (3 different properties). Dealing with Daryl has been a delight. He is always helpful and accommodating. The first time we stayed at one of the properties he manages, my son accidentally left his "fire-wire" connector cable attached to one of the televisions on the property. All it took was a call to Daryl and the cable was mailed back to us. We will definitely be renting from these folks again in the future.
This was a lovely property overall. Having the bedroom with the queen bed only accessible to the main floor via the garage was a bit odd, but my 24-year-old son didn't mind (it gave him more privacy).

The timely emails were great!! We knew we were expected and things would be ready. The property was so perfect, we didn't need anything after arrival!
We had a perfect week! The property exceeded our expectations. We always bring our own beach stuff, kitchen supplies, paper products, cleaning supplies... but, this house came already equipped. You could literally arrive with a swimsuit and toothbrush and have a perfect stay! Thank you for your attention to detail! We'll be back!
MANAGER: Wow! We are VERY pleased that you enjoyed it and we look forward to seeing you next time!

Fantastic rental. Property manager Daryl was awesome to work with. Completely private beach where we could easily watch our 7-11 yr old kids from the living room with no worries. Shell collectors dream. Great amenities. Couple great restaurants and grocery store within 10 min drive, but still feel like total isolation. Can't wait to comeback and stay longer next time.
MANAGER: We work very hard for our guest to have a great experience.
Thank YOU for all of the kind words!

The entire reservation and check-in process was so easy and efficient. Staff was extremely helpful and explained everything well. My family has rented vacation homes in Georgia, Tennessee and New York and this experience was the easiest by far!
My family and I had a wonderful time at Seaside Escape. We were all extremely pleased with the house, the proximity to the beach and the abundant parking (many other homes along Ponte Vedra beach were too close to the road and had limited parking). I wish we could have stayed longer!
