About Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC - Linda M Granfield

Ocean Blue has received 5 star HomeAway ratings and rave guests' reviews for over five years. As the owners we decided, in September 2015, to rent the house ourselves. Given that Ratings and Reviews do not transfer you may view past guests' reviews under "About Ponte Vedra Beach House LLC - Linda M Granfield" 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.

perfect for small weddings

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.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented Ocean Blue for a week and from the moment we entered, we knew we'd rented the perfect vacation home for our group of 10 adults. Linda was a complete joy to work with as she was very responsive to our questions prior to our arrival and also met us upon checking in. We enjoyed meeting her and her lovely daughters. The home was immaculate, spacious and comfortable. Two refrigerators gave us plenty of room, and the kitchen provided enough space for many cooks to work at once! Throughout the week we never felt like we were on top of each other because there were lots of places to get away if you needed some space. The beach was beautiful and not at all crowded. The common areas were spacious and we all had plenty of room to sit around and play games in the evening. We will definitely recommend Ocean Blue to our friends who are visiting the St. Augustine area - and hope to return someday ourselves! Thanks, Linda, for the beautiful home which helped make our vacation memorable.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Carol. We absolutely loved your family and were so honored to be invited to a French cooked meal in "y"our home. Our daughter loved the teenagers in your family and they all plan to stay in touch! You were all delightful and we look forward to your return! Have a wonderful summer. Linda

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning (see contract) A$403 + Tax
Refundable Damage Deposit A$672
Pet Fee A$302 + Tax
Tax Rate 10.5%

For a vacation rental there is a $500.00 refundable deposit required to reserve a booking. This converts to a damage deposit which will be refunded automatically by HomeAway/VRBO (when payment is made online) two weeks after check-out, provided there is no damage to the property. The rent is due two months prior to the rental. We offer a special rate of $350/night when there are 2-3 week nights available between back-to-back bookings.

For Weddings/Receptions and special events (any occasion where daytime guests attend an event) there is a flat fee of $5,000 plus $350 cleaning, 10 1/2% tax and an additional $500 damage deposit (above the $500 initial deposit to save the dates) for 4 nights (this supersedes the 7 night minimum). Additional weeknights prior to the wedding/special event may be added (when available) at $350/night. The balance of the fee in the case of Weddings/Special Events is due 4 months prior to the rental. Please note that in the months of September and October we are booking only Weddings/Special Events

Please note that payment by credit card or PayPal will incur a 2.9% processing fee (when payment is made in the U.S.) and 4.9% for International payments, which will be deducted from the deposit.
