Three Palms Beach House, 4 Bedrooms, Ocean Front, Pet Friendly, Sleeps 8
A path from the doorway of Three Palms, our charming oceanfront bungalow in Ponte Vedra, leads straight through the dunes and down to the pink sands of one of Florida's best beaches. Discover laid-back beach living at its very best! Come to Three Palms!
The ocean is glassy, the ultra-fine sands soft and inviting, and the natural dunes simply beautiful on our beach in South Ponte Vedra. And when you look out the back door and see the simple path leading straight to the horizon, you'll know you've arrived at one of the last real beach houses remaining in Florida -- no advertising, no crowds, just you and the sun, surf, and sand!
Three Palms is a mid-20th-century bungalow style home that has been extensively refurbished inside without losing one bit of its natural charm. The living room offers a relaxed setting for winding down after a busy day at the beach. Boasting a decorative fireplace, an open work beamed ceiling, ultra-comfy couches and chairs, and an HDTV with DVD player, it's the kind of room you can imagine spending hours in on Sunday morning, the paper spread out everywhere, soft music playing, the kids building with Legos or playing a board game on the floor. Home, in other words!
A spacious and pleasant as the living room is, there's another lounging area at Three Palms too, just in case, your group needs to split up (such as when the big game is on TV and everyone else wants to play Win Lose or Draw!). The sun room is a glorious space, with a long bank of windows, a door outside (many rooms at Three Palms have doors going outside -- it's just too wonderful a location to stay inside for long!), a homey fireplace and mantel, and the most addictive plaid couch and chairs you will ever have the pleasure of napping in! Track lighting offers nice spotlights for reading or playing games, and the soft lamplight is perfect when it's time for a late-night heart-to-heart. You can gaze out at the lush Florida landscape while enjoying the cool comfort of this space. You're going to love it!
The dining area is drenched in sunlight too, with windows on two sides of the room. Our table for 6 is supplemented by bar stools along the kitchen counter for the kids, and makes a great computer and game area.
The kitchen offers a retro feel that we think you'll adore. Painted in aqua tones that may remind you of the early 1960s, it offers bright white counters, all the modern appliances, and plenty of cupboard and worktop space. You can go straight from the kitchen out to the patio too, making al fresco meals even easier! And we've got all the cookware, utensils, and dishes you need to prepare and serve just about anything.
There are 4 bedrooms at Three Palms. The master bedroom offers a luxurious king-sized bed, TV, ceiling fan, and long window. Its attached bath leads (where else?) outside -- very handy when the gang is on the patio enjoying the ocean view.
The second bedroom also contains a king bed, with cool aqua walls, a small TV, and light wicker accents. The third bedroom offers 2 twin beds, while the 4th features a day bed with a trundle. We've also got a sofa bed for 2, so feel free to bring as many as 8 folks to stay at Three Palms. You'll all be comfortable!
We have a second full bathroom with both a shower and tub option, as well as a half-bath. All of your bedding and towels are provided here, along with a full-size washer and dryer to keep everything clean and fresh. Come as you are and let Three Palms do the rest!
Three Palms is located along a quiet oceanfront strip of private homes that really shows off the natural beauty of the dunes and beach. Close to Guana State Park and Environmental Center, it's an oasis of old-fashioned Florida charm. Yet you're just minutes from world-class golf, exclusive spas, horseback riding, and water sport equipment rentals. So whether you want a quiet beach retreat or an action-filled vacation, Three Palms is your best destination!
This property has optional access to the prestigious 5 Diamond resort The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.

1950's Beach Home Needs Upgrades

The furniture is old, the carpeting torn in spots, windows dirty, torn screens, central air does not work, and the vent fans don't work. When we got there we had to remove trash from the back yard. The lawn chairs were damaged and could not be used. The side fence gate had fallen onto the ground. There is a blind spot due to overgrown shrubs that make getting out of the driveway onto busy highway one very dangerous. Due to the location cell phones do not connect. However WIFI and long distance land line service is provided. The only positive thing was access to the beach outside the back door. The beach was very nice.
Great beach house

While the outside of the house is a bit tired the inside was great! The house layout and 2 of the bedrooms with king sized beds pkus two more make it a great rental for families or a few coupkes. Being one floor it was also lerfect for our toddler granddaughter. And it is just steps to the beach which was wonderful. Also, the proximity to St, Augustine is great.

Had a great time very relaxing. Beautiful,quiet beach, the family had a great time fishing ,swimming, board paddling, bogie boarding just a great all around good time for us to reconnect with each other. The only thing that needed addressed are the bushes, hedges at the end of the drive way on the left side heading towards St. Augustine need to be cut back it was impossible to see traffic coming from that direction someone had to stand at the end and check for oncoming traffic.

This is a lovely and private location that was large enough for family to enjoy without stepping all over each other. The home and the beach was beautiful and comfortable. Can't wait to stay again.
A beautiful family vacation.

We will come back as we loved our stay at this beautiful little spot, which includes the only true full sand dunes left in S. Ponte Vedra Beach. The beach is exquisite, with very few people and great swimming. There were tide pools at low tide, perfect for our 2 year old grand daughter. At night we could put the grandchildren down and close off the back rec room for adult beverages and card games.

We loved the house and the location. 2 suggestions...the front and rear patios need to be treated for ants and there are alot of wasps in the grass at the rear patio. But we loved it and highly recommend the property.

The house was great! It was a perfect location right between Jacksonville and St. Augestine. It was a perfect place for our wedding and our family vacation. Loved that the master was on the other side of the house than everyone else. Very quiet and secluded. Would definately rent again.

The Perfect Beach Vacation
Reviewed on Monday, September 22, 2014
Seven of the most relaxing days we've ever experienced. This property is placed right in the middle of a natural hammock (we learned about what this means while there). We were 15 minutes from great restaurants and sight-seeing. And the wildlife was inspiring. My only compliant was the cordless phone batteries were dead most of the time...they provided important since we both had no cell service.
Relaxation. Family Time. Fun in the Sun

Coffee on the beach secluded. Family bonding moments. Peaceful, quiet moments of sunning on the beach. Family time boogie boarding - great waves. The house is a beach house. If you are looking for a great spacious house for family of 5 (2 of which are teen age boys) this is great. Wifi kept the boys connected to their world. Close to ST. Augustine - movie theater and outlet malls. You are 30 minutes away from dining out. Did do the local Aunt Kays (15 minute drive).

Beautiful beach area, comfortable, clean home away from home with all basic amenities you could need. The path to the beach could be cleared more (long grass and is irritating to the legs/feet). Would definitely consider staying again.

We were very surprised at the amount of space available in a block house, and was impressed with the way it was made to look fresh and open. A very short walk to the beach, however the path to the beach needs to be trimmed some. The tall beach grasses closing in on the path would make it miserable for small children to walk down. It also slapped at the feet and legs some. I like VR Pros properties very much.
A Relaxing Getaway

The house seemed disappointing from the outside compared to its neighbors, but once inside it was very spacious and clean. We had plenty of room for everyone to spread out and be comfortable. We loved the location right on the beach:)
Our only complaints were the driveway had a very bad blind spot and backing out into the fast moving traffic could be dangerous. There was also a leak in the freezer that we reported on Thursday morning and the repairman did not come until after 4 that afternoon. Overall though I very relaxing and enjoyable vacation spot.
Needs update in the worst way!

Best thing about rental was the property management. Very nice group. Proprty owner needs to put rental $$ into complete update, furniture, windows, carpet, beds...etc. Place needs a REAL cleaning.
A Hidden Jewel

We had our whole family at Three Palms (ten folks in all from ages 1 to 90) and it was one of the best family times we have ever had! I hesitated about posting because I want to keep this hidden jewel available for whenever we go again! It's just awesome. As beach people, we couldn't have had it better! Thanks to the rental company for a fabulous time!
