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 beach front vacation home/wedding venue located on the Atlantic Ocean in South Ponte Vedra Beach!

For WEDDINGS please see below for link on pricing.

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, 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 much larger than it appears in the pictures and has virtually everything one could envision to ensure a wonderful stay!

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 St. Augustine Area

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

We enjoyed Ocean Blue the home has everything you want or need for a family vacation.

Amazing!!! My family loved this beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home and friendly staff. The team accommodated our family needs and were really pleasant to work with. The house couldn't be more perfect for a beach wedding and the pictures speak for itself. I love every thing about it and I would actually love to rent this house again for family reunions. I don't think I have any cons against this venue with the exception that we had to leave. LOVE IT!

Incredible Property & Magical Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our wedding at Ocean Blue the weekend before Irma hit.

We are out of town guests and stayed for a week with extended family in the home. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the house and owner, Linda.

The house has a tremendous amount of space, is fully furnished and can truly accommodate a multitude of guests very comfortably. It was the PERFECT venue for our wedding. Gorgeous setting, wonderful backyard and plenty of space for all necessary wedding accoutrements. Linda is friendly, sweet and at the ready to take care of any situation that may arise. She was extremely helpful throughout the planning process. We are hoping to make an annual vacation to Ocean Blue for years to come.

I highly recommend this house for vacation and special events!

Ideal Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our time at Ocean Blue. The oceanfront home is spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped. It was ideal for our time together as a family. The hot tub, ping pong table, and fire pit were fun bonuses, but the gorgeous location and supportive owner are what make the home so special.

Owner's Response: Audrey and Fran, Your family is delightful and we loved having you at Ocean Blue this past summer. An owner's biggest compliment is that you rented for another month next summer before leaving us in July. Thank you! We look forward to seeing you again next July!

Wonderful home and exceptional beach

  • 5 of 5

Clean, spacious home with everything needed for a comfortable stay. And beyond this luxurious home the star of the show was the beach. We had 5 children under 5 and the warm, shallow water at low tide was perfect for them. The sand was great for digging for the kids and we all enjoyed shell hunting. In addition, the beach was always uncrowded making the whole experience a true retreat.

Having St Augustine close by was perfect. After a morning on the beach or before an afternoon there, we explored the historic city, toured the castle, ate gourmet popsicles, and visited the pirate museum. We even fit in some mini golf.

All in all, a perfect spot for a great vacation
