Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms & 4 1/2 Baths Sleeps 14. Master Suite w/deck & Fantastic Ocean Views!

Welcome to Ocean Blue, a stunning two story beachfront vacation home/wedding venue located on the Atlantic Ocean in South Ponte Vedra Beach!

For WEDDINGS & EVENTS: Rates displayed by HomeAway & VRBO relate exclusively to standard vacation rentals & do not apply to weddings or events. Pls visit us on WeddingWire.com (link included below) where we earned their 2018 Top Couples Choice Award!

For VACATION RENTALS Ocean Blue rents by the week. The 3 day minimum listed is for Weddings & Events only. Exceptions are when planned events leave open dates between rentals. Pls. refer to our calendar.

This wonderful home boasts a huge 2nd floor Master Suite and deck with fabulous ocean views. Walls of glass on the ocean side line the Master, the living/kitchen/dining area as well as the den. The spacious ground floor deck and the large flat yard with the ocean backdrop are ideal for a family game of soccer/frisbee/badminton as well as for weddings of approx. 90 guests. There is a large, fully stocked kitchen, indoor as well as outdoor dining for 14, loads of board games, books, beach toys, beach chairs & umbrellas, towels, a ping pong table, a fire pit and a hot tub! The Master bedroom suite encompasses the entire second floor while 3 bedrooms with private baths are on the ground floor. The den with a queen sleeper sofa & twin bed opens right out to the deck & the beach beyond. All ground floor bedrooms and bathrooms are wheelchair accessible.

Ocean Blue is perfect for weddings, family reunions & special events. We are often told that the home (particularly the living/dining/kitchen area) is substantially larger than it appears in the photos and is stocked with virtually everything one could envision to ensure a wonderful stay!

Ocean Blue is located on a lovely stretch of Ponte Vedra Beach given that across A1A is the Guana River State Park, which includes a large tidal estuary and a bird and wildlife preserve. Such a vast game preserve produces huge numbers of pelicans, ospreys, egrets, cranes, and wood-storks which fly over the house and feed in the ocean behind the house and the marsh in front of it. The beach is incredibly private given that the closest public parking is 1 1/2 miles away. Excellent restaurants are only minutes away!

For VACATION RENTALS please email or call the owner, Linda Granfield at 904-616-2779, prior to placing a credit card to request a booking.

About Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC - Linda M Granfield

Ocean Blue has received 5 star VRBO/HomeAway ratings and rave guests' reviews for over five years. View past guests' reviews under "About Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC" and scroll down to "Guest book comments from the owner".

Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC - Linda M Granfield purchased this house in 2010

Why Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC - Linda M Granfield chose South Ponte Vedra Beach

Unlike most oceanfront vacation homes in Ponte Vedra or St. Augustine, the main living area at Ocean Blue is located on the ground level. You walk through the front door and are greeted with stunning ocean views from four sets of French doors that lead out to the terrace & yard and a fabulous & serene beach just a few steps beyond! With all but one bedroom being downstairs, you don't have stairs to climb to bring in luggage and groceries! The living - dining - kitchen area is extremely spacious and open (guests have indicated that it is much larger than it appears in pictures). Comfortable but elegant furnishings, a 55" LCD TV, dining for 14 or more (both inside and outside), and the wonderful deck beyond will coax you into relaxation! Adjoining the living room is a cozy den, with ocean views, large television and queen sofa sleeper.

Our guest book at Ocean Blue is full of renters' comments about the gorgeous house, the many amenities, games, toys, books, ping pong table, hot tub, outdoor fire pit and the kids who always find loads of shark teeth!

Ocean Blue is also home to multiple weddings and events. Please view "rental rates" for applicable wedding and event fees.

What makes this house unique

We love the classy details about this house. The dark oak wood floors and the Mahogany furniture bring a little bit of home to what would otherwise be a typical beach house. The Master Bedroom Suite on the second floor is second to none. The stunning views from the King bed and from the double settee add to a very romantic setting for the special couple as they relax side by side with a glass of champagne looking out at the awe-inspiring ocean views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our all-time favorite rental!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the lovely Ocean Blue. We're a family of 7 with children ranging from 4-14. We've stayed at multiple vacation rentals over the years and this is hands-down our favorite! The home has a very open floor plan and is laid out in a way that could comfortably host 2-3 families to share in the experience. The kitchen is very well-stocked with most any amenity that one could possibly need. Having what is essentially a private beach just a few steps away is fantastic! Our kids absolutely loved swimming in the ocean and found over 100 shark teeth. Linda also kindly ordered a few games for our boys to play with during our stay which was a pleasant surprise. She is an excellent owner and is very responsive. Would highly recommend!!

Amazing home , amazing venue, for an amazing wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My best friends daughter was getting married and I was asked to help find all the vendors and venue. When we found Ocean Blue we were in awe. The venue is perfect and the beach is amazing. Linda was very helpful and kind. The home itself was perfect for the immediate family and the second floor bridal suite is perfect. We highly recommend this to all and every bride looking for the perfect beach wedding!

Loved Ocean Blue!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Ocean Blue for a Thanksgiving family weekend, and it was perfect. Very spacious for all of us to gather, the little kids had a blast and everyone who stayed for the weekend had plenty of room. The kitchen is perfect for preparing a large holiday meal! We also liked the quick drive to St. Augustine. Beautiful home!

Both luxurious and practical

  • 5 of 5

Even during a cold and wet December, this house felt warm and welcoming. The deck space with hot tub and fire pit made it easy for the family to relax outdoors; the spacious dining area and living room made group gatherings easy and enjoyable without feeling cramped! All amenities worked great; owner quickly responsive. And what a delicious master suite upstairs! House feels both practical and luxurious. Multiple cars can park in the drive (no small feat on A1A). Cannot beat the view.

Beautiful stay in a grand home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the recent opportunity to stay for a second time at Ocean Blue to host a post wedding anniversary reunion. We can not say enough good things about the lovely comforts of Ocean Blue. The kitchen is well equipped and the 2 dining tables provide seating for a large group or for buffet tables. The bedrooms provided room for 14 guests to sleep comfortably and the towels and bedding are top quality. Even though we stayed during a north Florida cold snap, we were able to enjoy beach walks, the hot tub and 2 fireplaces. The home was large enough for everyone to feel comfortable for the celebratory event. The owner Linda was welcoming and available for any questions. Watching the moon rise over the ocean was a highlight of this visit. New accent lighting makes it easy to locate Ocean Blue on a dark night on A1A. All of our family and friends are talking about the lovely accommodations and decor at Ocean Blue. Ocean Blue is perfect for hosting an event to show off our beautiful coastline, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine.
