Ralph Emerson purchased this House in 2001
Why Ralph Emerson chose South Ponte Vedra Beach
I searched the entire Southeastern Coast from MD, VA, NC, SC, GA plus the whole East coast of Florida plus the Keys and Gulf side, out the Panhandle including AL. and found Ponte Vedra to be the absolute best. It is close to the large and growing southern city of Jacksonville which features excellent performing arts, professional sports, fine restaurants, and activities. My home is just a few minutes away from St. Augustine and it is within a few hours driving distances to Orlando, Daytona and the Kennedy Space Center. The temperature here is more moderate and less humid than other parts of the South. I bought the lot in the 1980s, designed my home, supervised the building of it in the 1990s and have been extremely happy with the results and my chosen area as has had my family, many friends, and guests.
What makes this House unique
On the beach with lots of marine life activity, peaceful uncrowded beach to watch the dolphins play and the occasional breaching of whales, nesting of the giant loggerhead turtles and the fiddler crabs digging their nesting holes in the sand. Shelling is great, surf fishing, beach glass, and sharks teeth hunting. Seeing the sun and moon rise out of the sea and the beautiful sunsets over Guana Lake and Perserve. Walking in the extensive parkland trails of the Guana Perserve is a treat and is only a few minutes away. Dining at the unique varied fish camps along the Intracoastal Waterway and watching the private boats and fishing trawlers go by as you dine under the massive oaks with their hanging moss.

Extended Family Wedding House
We loved our stay at Mr. Emerson's beach house. Our son got married in the house next door. Extended family was able to stay in Mr. Emerson's house and easily walk next door to the wedding. We had grandparents, aunts and uncles. Plenty of room for all. Thank you for meeting us at the house upon arrival. He gave us a tour and answered all our questions. Fantastic stay.
Great place on the beach!
We had a family reunion and the house was big enough to accommodate our extended families. We enjoyed being right on the ocean and the place was very relaxing and open. The owner, Ralph was accommodating and thorough. We had a fantastic time & great memories were made! Thank you.
Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your time at my beach house. I was delighted to share it with you and I hope to see you again in the future!

Large enough for our extended family. Owner was very helpful. Weather didn't cooperate but the beach was perfect. We hope to return!
