Luxury Beachfront Key West Style Home with Optional Pool and Club, Computer, Huge Deck
USA/Florida/East Coast/Ponte Vedra Beach Vacation Rental
3 bedroom, 3 bath vacation home sleeps 8 (1 KING, 1 QUEEN, 4 TWINS, CRIB)
Sandpiper's Nest is a lovely, beautifully decorated and appointed home on a high dune in the quiet oceanfront area of South Ponte Vedra Beach. Located between Jacksonville (Ponte Vedra) and St. Augustine, Sandpiper's Nest is in a very private area of single family homes (no high rises or high traffic here!) but is just 5 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, and 15 miles to posh Ponte Vedra.
Decorated in the Key West cottage style, Sandpiper's Nest offers a calm and serene respite from our busy world. The ocean colors, vaulted wood ceilings, top quality furniture, and many amenities make vacationing here a pure joy.
The living-dining-kitchen area is spacious and open to the deck and ocean views beyond. The large sitting area has views of the ocean, a fireplace for our winter guests, and a large pine armoire with cable TV, DVD player, Bose stereo/radio, and lots of books, games and puzzles.
The pine dining table easily seats 6, and two comfy bar chairs at the end of the long kitchen counter offer additional dining space.
The galley kitchen is lovely, with granite counters, side-by-side refrigerator with water and ice on the door, glass top electric range, oven, microwave, toaster and toaster oven, dishwasher, and all the other conveniences that make cooking a pleasure. The kitchen is situated in the heart of the living area, with no walls to obscure the views of the living and dining areas and the wonderful deck and ocean beyond.
The master bedroom is a peaceful retreat. Located on the ocean side of the house, it offers a king size bed with top quality mattress, pillows, and linens. Additionally, the room contains a daybed, computer with high speed Internet and fax/printer, and a television with DVD player. A private bath with a large soaking tub is attached to the bedroom. The master suite opens onto the oceanfront deck through large sliding doors. Sleeping to the sound of the ocean is always a delight!
The "junior master" is on the front of the house. It offers a queen sized bed, television armoire with VCR, vaulted wood ceilings, and a private bath. As with the master, the bed linens, pillows, and mattress are of the highest quality.
The bunk room was designed for children, although the regular twin mattresses insure comfortable sleeping for adults as well. Thanks to a trundle underneath the bunk bed, the room sleeps three comfortably. The bunk room contains a television/VCR and several children's tapes and games. A full bath is located in the hall just outside the bunk room.
The deck is a destination in itself. Running the length of the house, the deck is bumped out in the middle, offering a 16 X 20 area for play and relaxing. Furnished with a round umbrella topped dining table and many comfortable chairs and loungers, the deck is a delightful spot to read, snooze, or dine. The deck railings have slats located close together so that small children are always safe, and a lockable gate insures that they will stay on the deck and off the dune walkover! At the end of the dune walkover is a very special built-in bench, which everyone loves for early morning coffee or late night moon watching! From there, it is a 15 step descent to the beach and the wonderful Atlantic ocean!
Other amenities of Sandpiper's Nest include: a double enclosed garage; water softener; indoor laundry center; gas grill, lots of beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, beach toys, and fishing rods.... crib and pack n go; booster chair, and baby linens. Just bring your bathing suit and toothbrush and you are ready to go!
