Welcome to "Serenity by the Sea"! The moment you walk in the front door you will know that you are about to enjoy a relaxing vacation like no other. The rich, warm wood floors invite you in and the endless views of the Atlantic Ocean will soothe your soul immediately! Elevated high above the dune, Serenity by the Sea offers ocean views from just about every room in the house. The main living area is on the downstairs level. Here, you will find an open living room/kitchen area. The living room features a sofa and two comfy chairs for gathering. There is a flat screen TV mounted on the wall above a decorative (non-functioning) fireplace. The kitchen is a chef's delight. The gas stove is stainless steel with a double oven, and overhead vent. The beautiful counter-tops are marble and stone. The kitchen is stocked with all of the pots, pans, and other items needed to make your favorite meals, all while enjoying the beautiful views of the beach. There is also a side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water dispenser. The dining area is off of the kitchen and overlooks the beach. There is a door that leads out to the ocean front deck, where you'll find a gas grill (propane provided), for those days you feel like throwing some burgers on!

There are two main bedroom suites downstairs. The first one is ocean front and has a king bed, private bathroom, TV, and a sitting area. The bathroom features a walk-in shower and two pedestal sinks. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, full bathroom, TV, and a sitting area. It also has a small desk, perfect for setting up a laptop computer. This bathroom also has a large walk-in shower and a pedestal sink.

There are two more bedrooms upstairs. These bedrooms are designed with kids, teens, or single adults in mind. The 3rd bedroom has two twin beds, TV, and a walk-in closet. The 4th bedroom has a twin-over-double bunk bed and a TV. These two bedrooms share a full bathroom which has a walk-in shower.

You will find plenty of room on our large ocean side balcony. Located on the first floor, the balcony spans the width of the house and has plenty of room for lying out in the sun. There is also table seating on the deck for those early morning cups of coffee, or lunch by ocean.

We have a double garage and a semi-circular driveway, offering parking for up to 5 cars. We can accomodate up to 8 guests, plus a baby in the crib. We also have a high chair and booster seat for the little ones. We provide all of the linens, beach and bath towels, beach chairs, and starter sets of bath soaps and toiletries.

While you may decide that you never want to leave the beach, we do encourage our guests to explore nearby, historic St. Augustine. Here you will find countless shops, sight seeing, and some fabulous restaurants. We also have a few wonderful, waterfront restaurants right here in S. Ponte Vedra Beach. Some of our favorites are Caps on the Water, The Reef, and Aunt Kate's. We are sure that you will find some favorites of your own. If there are any avid golfers in your group, bring your clubs. There are plenty of challenging golf courses in the area. Making day trips to Orlando and Jacksonville is easy. Orlando is just under 2 hours away and downtown Jacksonville is 45 minutes. If flying into town, Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) is just an hour away.

Thank you for taking the time to check out our beach house, "Serenity by the Sea". We hope that you will choose it for your vacation home, and quite possibly the place that you will want to come back to time and time again.

Guestbook comments from the owner:

We had a great time at this family friendly beach house. It was so easy to just walk out of the house with the kids and be on the beach. And if we accidentally left something in the house it wasn't an ordeal to quickly walk back up to grab it. Also, we really enjoyed the huge porch and hanging out there for cocktails at sunset.

We did notice that several of the lamps/lights in the house didn't have light bulbs, which was slightly annoying. Also, we thought the living room area could be more comfortable if there could be a coffee table or ottoman added to the space.

Regardless, we had a wonderful time at this property and really enjoyed our stay.


Feb 2019

Our family spent 2 fabulous weeks at this house in May. We absolutely hated to leave it. We will definitely rent it again. It was located right on the ocean and there is no public access, so we had the beach almost to ourselves the entire time. Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTM Research Reserve) goes for miles across the street so there are no houses there, either. It was convenient to a gas station/convenience store and a Publix grocery store. Then, hop over the Vilano Bridge and you’re in St. Augustine!

Now, about this house. It was lovely! Nicely furnished. Spotless. Our beds couldn’t have been more comfortable. There were 4 adults and a 4-year-old and the sleeping arrangements were perfect. Even when it rained, we weren’t upset. We had a beautiful house to shelter in. The kitchen is very well equipped: plenty of dishes, cups, glasses, silverware, pots and pans. No need to run the dishwasher but once a day. It was very convenient to have a high-capacity washer and dryer, too. The color scheme is very calming. Not that we spent time watching TV, but there is a TV in each bedroom and the living room. The deck is plenty big and includes a shower and spigot for rinsing off after enjoying the very private beach. Bath towels, hand towels, washcloths and beach towels were plentiful.

The sharks’ teeth were plentiful, too. We found 400!

We rented directly through Wren Beach Rentals and received outstanding customer service. David couldn’t have been easier to deal with and his responses were almost immediate. We were glad we got to meet him, also. As I mentioned, we plan to rent this house again and will not hesitate to use Wren Beach Rentals again.


May 2018

We absolutely loved this house! It was perfect for our little family get together. David at Wren Beach Rentals was so helpful in finding the perfect home. The house is exactly as advertised! The decor was bright and crisp. The home was very clean and well stocked. The location can not be beat! We will be back soon!


May 2018

Property is clean and well appointed. Location is 1/2 way between downtown Ponte Vedra and St Augustine. Beach is right out the back door. Area was hit hard by hurricane Irma. While this unit survived just fine, other properties in the neighborhood sustained significant damage and are quite rundown looking. We had had one minor problem with a toilet and the owner could not have responded more professionally and quickly.


Mar 2018

We were a group of 8 adults and fit easily. Everything was clean and perfect. This is a perfect place to stay directly on the water.

The only detail to note (and maybe this isn't always the case) is that there is only one road into downtown St Augustine, which ended up being about a 30 minute drive into town with heavy traffic most hours of the day. Not a huge deal, but something to be aware of.


Mar 2018

We were very happy with our stay, and would rent this home again!

Perfect!!!!

What a perfect house and location! We loved everything and have absolutely no complaints! It had everything we needed and was so clean! The beach was beautiful and so private. Wren beach rentals (David and Daphne) were both very helpful and accommodating when I had questions. We will definitely be renting this house again.
