Guestbook comments from the host:
Our family celebrated Christmas for the first time at the beach this year. Could not have chosen a better place. The house and yard were well taken care of and provided everything we could have needed. Watching the sunrise and moonrise from the decks is Awesome! Beautiful place. Thank you so much for sharing. We had a wonderful family Christmas and look forward to coming back. Beautiful, well laid-out floor plan.
The house was beautiful, came with everything you needed. Very clean. The water temp in October was perfect.I went swimming every morning in the ocean and several times a day. My mother never used VRBO and was sceptical, however she continues to call and say it was the most relaxing an best vacation she has ever had. Waking up to the sound of the waves. The only thing I wished it had was a fishing pole, I went and bought one and caught a couple of fish on the last day. I would highly recommend this rental.
We recently had the great pleasure of escaping what has felt like an exceptionally long Canadian winter, to enjoy a week in South Ponte Vedra Beach. We had looked at several places online, and found that many of them were managed by Wren Beach Rentals. I had several questions, and was able to speak with David by phone and email. David was great to deal with, and very helpful in suggesting which properties were available for our planned timing, and which might best suit our needs.
We loved the look of Southern Charm online, and were not disappointed once we got there. The house was very comfortable, with a lovely, nicely equipped kitchen (we hoped to do some cooking). The main floor has a terrific open plan, so it was ideal for spending time as a family. The access to the beach was glorious, and for the most part we had the beach to ourselves (an advantage of visiting off season). We liked the fact that every bedroom had a door to one of the two large ocean-side decks, so it was easy to step outside, and enjoy the ocean. The house is in a great location, The beach was wonderful, and we were a short drive to the closest grocery store, gas station, and several restaurants. St. Augustine is minutes away, so it was convenient for seeing the sites, shopping, and more restaurants and bars. We enjoyed ourselves so much, that we asked David if we could stay for an extra couple of days. Happily we were able to. We would happily return in a heartbeat, and will definitely be contacting Wren the next time we head to that area.
Wonderful home and my family and I really enjoyed our stay. We're hoping to be back next year.
Our family of seven had a great stay at Southern Charm. The house was very well maintained and stocked with everything needed for the week. The location, layout and amenities were just as advertised. The property was very clean on arrival. David and the folks with Wren Rentals were very responsive and provided great service from our first inquiry on the property right through checkout. In fact, we arrived in the dark and fumbled with the key code, but the folks at Wren actually answered the phone late on a Saturday night and helped us immediately. We practically owned the beach, which was one flight of stairs down from the house. Very secluded but a relatively short drive to market and downtown St. A. Couldn't have been better.
The house is on a beach that is very quiet. We were the only people on the beach ...no wading through eight or more families trying to find a spot to put your beach chairs! We walked down the back stairs and we were at the beach. So nice for the family to just run up the stairs to the house and grab drinks or lunch... no hauling everything with you. The house was very clean and a very nice layout for our large family. There was a very nice BBQ grill and lots of chairs and toys for the beach provided so we didn't have to bring a lot with us. The beach is a nesting ground for turtles and it provided a great learning experience for our grandson and great fun with all the crabs that were out at night. David was wonderful to work with, he was very responsive to all my emails and just did a great job in helping with the rental. I would highly recommend the property. It was a very relaxing time with St Augustine just minutes away to explore and lots of restaurants to choose from. We also spent time at the Serenata Beach Resort ..beautiful pools and wonderful service and food. We will be back and will try to spend more time at the Resort !
Great location, plenty of space, gorgeous beach view-right out the back door! Had an issue with air conditioning but fixed quickly! Kitchen was adequately equipped-no complaints. Just a few negatives: Towels were thin, old, torn and needed replacing, Bathrooms need updating, interior needs repainting, sewage odor in master bathroom . BUT OVERALL A GOOD EXPERIENCE!

Thank you for your feedback. We had to have the septic tank replaced. The linens were replaced about 3 months ago, but will look into getting newer ones. Hope to have you back soon!
