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 of 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. Comfortable but elegant furnishings, a 55" LCD TV, dining for 14 or more, 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 sleeper.

Our book at the house 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.

Great space for many friends and events

  • 5 of 5

We rented this grand home for a week over the New Year for our daughter's wedding - she wanted an intimate beachfront wedding where their friends from all over the world could gather and enjoy our beautiful Ponte Vedra Beach. This home was perfect to comfortably house 14 friends and family and host a wedding for 60 guests. The bedrooms are ample size for multiple guests and the gorgeous master suite not only housed the newly weds but was a beautiful setting for pre wedding activities including a hair stylist and makeup entourage. The rehearsal dinner was held at Caps on the Water - a nearby "Old Florida" restaurant and the wedding party relaxed with wedding party yoga on the beach before the rehearsal. The Publix grocery was an easy drive. The upstairs balcony provided the perfect backdrop for the bride and groom's private "first look" and beautiful photographs. We rented a tent, tables, chairs and heaters for the wedding and the caterer had plenty of room to set up a bar and buffet tables. The backyard was large enough for the ceremony with wedding arbor and chairs and for the 30' x 40' tent with chandelier, dance floor and 8 tables. The large well- stocked kitchen provided many opportunities for group cooking and the hot tub and fire table seating were added amenities that were enjoyed during the week. A second refrigerator and ample bar space in the laundry room made storing items easy. A top of the line washer and dryer were very helpful during the week. For the wedding we hired a transportation service to shuttle guests from Vilano and Sawgrass hotels and it worked out well. There is plenty of parking in the driveway for vendors when cars are positioned well. The owner was extremely helpful in answering my questions ( I had many as I am a detail person) and we were so pleased with the upkeep of this beautiful home. We had a small electrical problem and the maintenance man was quick on the property to solve our issue. My daughter, her new husband and their friends travelled from Australia, Canada, Ireland and all over the United States and everyone was in awe of the beautiful wedding backdrop this home and beach provided. Due to the remote locale near Guana Preserve, don't count on good cell phone service - but the wi fi worked well. Guests also enjoyed the beach for shelling and shark tooth hunting.

Owner's Response: Molly, we are delighted that the wedding was so successful. Thank you for this very detailed review that will certainly help future couples visualize a beach wedding in S. Ponte Vedra. We were relieved that FPL informed you of the power outage and that Sean handled it quickly and efficiently. A couple that saw the wedding from the beach said it was so beautiful they booked their own for next year! THANK YOU! Please send pictures that we may add to our photo gallery. Linda

Everyone said it was one of the nicest weddings they've ever been to, like they were on a movie set. Really enjoyed our stay, and the owner Linda is great. Went out of her way to make sure we had a great vacation/wedding!!

Great spot for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at Ocean Blue. Plenty of room for a big family gathering. The back yard/beach is great - so many jax beach properties do not have any back yard so it was great to let everyone hang out. The house itself was stocked with everything we needed. Ping pong table upstairs was loads of fun. One point of awareness the entire top floor is the master bedroom suite - we liked this as we have an infant and we could all hang out downstairs and let them sleep. Also the owner was incredible to deal with - we messed up the timing of check in and she was so accommodating.

Great Beach Rental. Owner thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Had a 4 generation (9 in all) family gathering at Ocean Blue. It was perfect. Here's why:

- Owner had house so well stocked, only needed food and drinks. Incl. beach towels and toys, spices, laundry detergent, beginning paper products, dish towels. Everything!

- Great location. Walk straight out to beach. Quiet spot. Lots of stars.

- 10 minutes to great family restaurant. Easy drive to St. Augustine.

- Well kept house, beautiful and open. She had plenty of comfy seating. ( Too many rentals say "sleeps 6-10" but only seat 5 comfortably.) Great TV, family games. New ping pong table.

- one footnote, not a fan of sofa beds. There was a new mattress, but still unevenness of springs. Great twin in that room though.

- Linda met us to make sure we could understand everything about the house. She couldn't have been nicer!

- Everyone wants to make this an annual family tradition!

A beautiful house on a pristine beach

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Blue is a lovely house with plenty of space. It is very well laid out. The bedrooms are great and the beds are comfortable. Each bedroom has its own bath, which is nice.The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of space to cook and dine. We love to eat dinner at the table on the deck with beautiful views of the ocean. Access to the beach is very convenient. The beach is the nicest I have ever seen! It is practically private, fairly wide with lovely shells. We have rented this house for 3 or 4 years and it is perfect! It is exactly as depicted in the photos and was very clean. The owner met us at the house and was very nice and helpful. I would recommend it to my friends and family. St. Augustine is nearby with many historical and recreational activities. Grocery stores and restaurants are fairly convenient and very nice. We especially love Caps on the Water and always eat there at least twice while we are in Ponte Vedra Beach.
