At Beach Whisper, our oceanfront house on Ponte Vedra Beach, you feel as though you're in command of a gorgeous private beach, with rich dunes, sparkling waves, and soft sand. Bring the whole group to this luxurious family home and vacation in style!<br/><br/>Beach Whisper sits right on the dunes overlooking the wide, unspoiled sands of the beach. There are wonderful views from many rooms in the house, as well as from our big second-storey deck and first-storey patio. And these aren't glimpses -- they're sweeping panoramic vistas that put on a show every morning at dawn!<br/><br/>The second-storey deck is one of our favorite places, and we think it will be yours too. Located just off the living room, it offers a picnic table, safety rail, and outdoor staircase right down to the dunes. There's plenty of space here for sunbathing, reading, bird-watching, or even using your electronics (you have free wireless Internet at Beach Whisper). Let the murmur of the waves and the smell of the salty sea breeze restore your spirit out here!<br/><br/>Just in from the sundeck, the living room is another great place for the whole group to gather. Here you'll find an ultra-comfortable sectional sofa (part of which opens into a bed!) in front of a gigantic new HDTV with cable, VCR, DVD player, and all the trimmings. Watching a movie here is almost like being in the theatre -- so before you go to bed one night, cue up The Jungle Book and let the kids wake up as early as they like to watch it, while the adults snooze for another couple hours. Isn't vacation wonderful?!<br/><br/>The ocean views from the living room are lovely, but the dining room offers even more exciting vistas. Our cozy round table is inset in an alcove ringed with long, sunny windows. One look at the beach outside, and you'll be hard pressed to get anyone to eat any breakfast. Another day of adventures has begun!<br/><br/>The breakfast bar offers additional seating, and it's fun to watch the cook in our open-plan kitchen. Everything is sparkling clean here, and you'll be impressed by how well-stocked the cupboards are. No casting around for glasses or a can-opener -- you'll find al the cookware, dishes, and utensils you need waiting for you here. <br/><br/>There are 4 bedrooms at Beach Whisper, so everyone has a great place to stretch out. The master suite is on the second floor, and sports a super-comfy king-sized bed, a private TV, and great ocean views. The en-suite bathroom is luxurious too, with a separate walk-in shower and soaking tub. <br/><br/>The second bedroom offers 2 single beds, while the third contains a queen-sized bed. A second full bathroom is convenient to both of these rooms. And the fourth bedroom, on the ground floor, opens out to the patio. Lovely ocean views are yours in this room, which contains a double-sized bed and a TV. The third bathroom is on the first floor as well, with a separate door leading directly outdoors, so the kids won't track sand in from the beach!<br/><br/>You'll love how remote Beach Whisper feels, even though it's very close to a main road and convenient to both St. Augustine and Palm Coast. A private set of steps leads you down from the dune onto the soft sands, which are perfect for everything from sandcastle-building to sunbathing. Dolphins swim by our beach, and many types of birds are constant visitors. At any time of day, it's simply wonderful here!<br/><br/>And at Beach Whisper, we've tried to anticipate everything you need for your stay. We provide all the linens, pillows, blankets, and towel sets for every bedroom and bathroom, and our washer and dryer are at your disposal. You'll find beach toys of every description -- feel free to enjoy them. We want you to make this your Ponte Vedra home-away-from-home, and we know that once you stay at Beach Whisper, you'll be certain to return! Make plans to see visit soon!
Additional amenities include: biking, beach, fishing, washer / dryer....Read more

Started off with not be able to get in lock box, the grandson open door (which had no screws in the jam to hold door) so door went down along with child-breaking his arm, carpet and couch need a good cleaning, ref. smelled like fish, stove smell like gas every time we tried to use it, blind fell off brackets almost hitting same child in head, TV in master bedroom didn't work for three days, deck needs a good cleaning and repair, drains not working order in bathtub, slats need to be replaced on several windows, door to twin bedroom would not stay closed, stormed the last day we were there flooding the foyer and several windows leaked, to top it off they sent the maintenance man to check on the child, he informed us that he had been working on the house the past 3 days getting it up to par?? Wonder what it looked like before? Rented from Vacation Rental Pros (used them in the past) they don't seem to troubled with the problems we had, they did give us 200.00 refund, but for what we paid, should be doing something else about it. Saw some of these problems on reviews before we came and was told everything was in order??

We had such a wonderful time at the house. There was plenty of room for all 8 of us (5 adults, 3 children). The location was excellent and we loved how the boards and some sand toys were provided for our use. The only drawback is the deck needs to be sanded and restained. We had several cases of splinters and the railing on the far right is a little wobbily. The chairs could also be sanded and painted. Other than that the property is amazing and we could not have enjoyed it more!

This was an ideal alternative to a big hotel, where four of us attended a conference. Other conference delegates were envious of our accommodation and it turned out to be cheaper than for four of us in the hotel. A great location by the sea.

When we travel, we prefer to rent a home than stay in hotels. We recently spent a week on S Ponte Vedro Beach, FL, and stayed in a VRP rental property. From the ease of finding the website, making reservations - especially digital handling of the paperwork, accessing the property. We did need help with the cable/tv, and the gentleman who arrived to help, was able to show us (2x lol). Beautiful home - superior location (closer to St augustine than Ponte Vedro Beach (the "town"))! Lots to do and/or relaxing in the sunshine! Wonderful weather!
