Seashell, Direct Ocean Front, WiFi Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
‘She sells seashells’ and total, utter beachfront privacy. Zoom into Seashell on Google Maps and the location gets better and better. It’s directly on the beach, halfway between TPC Sawgrass and the historic charm of St. Augustine. You arrive at Seashell’s front door straight off the stunning Scenic A1A. It’s then you realize you’ve got the Atlantic Ocean all to yourself.
Be our guest! Brand new to the rental market following a gorgeous renovation, Seashell is ready to impress its very first visitors. A beach house with every modern convenience, yet packed with cottage charm, you’ll enjoy HDTV and free WiFi while recalling Ponte Vedra’s early days of the twenties and thirties. Neutral décor leaves the home’s main features to steal the show: its high beamed ceiling, white-washed walls and wide ocean views. This is the classic family beach bungalow people dream of inheriting.
Seashell is an ideal spot for bird-watchers and anyone with an appreciation for nature. Spend time with your binoculars spotting all manner of shore birds, and perhaps sea turtles, dolphins and migrating Right whales. For a more tactile approach, enjoy hours of shell-hunting right outside the back door.
The master bedroom has its own ocean views, allowing you to sneak peeks of the sunrise without an ounce of effort. The pair of single beds in bedroom two are equally idyllic after a tiring day of fresh sea air. A third bedroom with double bed means there’s space at Seashell for up to six guests. This single-story home will especially suit guests with mobility concerns or families with children they need to keep an eye on.
A brand new kitchen gleams with sweet stainless steel, including a French door fridge and deep, under-mount sink. The island breakfast bar, topped with granite counters that match the warm colors of the sand outside, is a perfect place to plan your day – will you head north or south on the A1A?
As for ‘the little things’, a stacked washer-dryer makes beach living clean and convenient. There’s an outdoor shower to keep sand separate from your time on the couch.
Between bed and the beach, a screened back porch is ideal for cuddling up to enjoy coffee as the sun rises. When ready to boogie board it’s just a barefoot race through your own backyard on to Ponte Vedra beach itself.
If you love a new take on classic beach memories, be the very first to try life at Seashell.

“Great Week on the Beach-just had to ignore the dirt/ants”
Left on 09/03/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Sep 3, 2012Stayed Aug 2012
We had a great week in this house, the location was excellent. When we arrived a canister of sugar had been left on the stove and ants were swarming everywhere. Thie ant problem continued and the management company did send out a great maintenance/property manager, who did a thorough insect spray. The ants did subside as the week continued. The house was advertised with a grill-important because the kitchen is very small with an antiquated stove and several old, some rusty pot and pans. The outdoor grill was rusted out and this same great property manager went out and delivered us a new grill. Overall, the property needs a good scrubbing. Simple things like getting rid of all the old unusable kitchen items, putting new drawer liners and vacuuming out the bedroom dresser drawers (I never put anything in the drawers). The pillows were old and yellow/stained -glad I only noticed that on the last day-when you are instructed to strip all bedding off beds. As I opened the blinds, every windowsill had dead bugs-another signal to me that whoever cleaned this house was not very detail oriented. Great location, great house-just needs a deep cleaning.
