Space
Leave your worries behind, its “Island Time”. This comfortable 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, oceanfront home is perfect for parties of 8 or less. There is no doubt you will find comfort in this much needed escape from every day life. “Island Time” is located 15 minutes north of the historic St. Augustine in beautiful, South Ponte Vedra Beach. You will find the views and sunrises from the beach are stunning, but the sunsets over the Guana Reserve are breathtaking! When you arrive, the front door leads you up a staircase which opens into a large living area, welcoming friends and family. As you walk into the main living area you will find plenty of places to lounge! The home has an open floor plan with a shabby chic feel, oversized sofas and calming colors. One of the sofas is a sleeper sofa, great for small kids. The fireplace is for decorative purposes only. The room is large and shares space with the dining area that has seating for up to 6 and counter seating space for 3. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook your favorite meal. It features stainless steel appliances and beautiful granite countertops. Right outside the dining area, large French doors open to a covered wrap around porch. You will find this is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee as the sun rises over the ocean in the mornings, take an afternoon nap, and end the day with a glass of wine. Down the hall, are two additional bedrooms. Each room has a king bed, their own televisions, and doors that lead to the wrap around porch. Guests in these bedrooms will share the full bathroom (shower stall) plus an extra vanity right outside the bathroom. The extra vanity makes it very convenient for everyone to get ready for a day spent in Historic Saint Augustine or for a night on the town! On the third level is the master bedroom. It features a king bed with comfortable bedding and spa-like colors, private balcony, and large television. The master bath has a shower/tub combo. Your biggest dilemma will be to wake up with sun or to pull the shades to sleep in! Please note: there is no access to the garage. Experience the beauty of sandy shores where you can swim, sunbathe, surf, paddleboard, and fish. Take leisurely walks along the beach to discover treasures like shark teeth, sand dollars, and sea glass. Explore Anastasia State Park for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, birdwatching, and picnicking in a stunning coastal setting. Discover the rich history of Historic St. Augustine by visiting landmarks like Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum, and the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park. Stroll down St. George Street, a pedestrian only thoroughfare in the heart of the historic district, lined with charming shops, restaurants, galleries, and historic sites. Immerse yourself in the Gilded Age at the Lightner Museum, housed in a historic hotel, showcasing a diverse collection of art, antiques, and artifacts. Experience the thrill of getting up close to alligators, crocodiles, and exotic animals at St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park, which also offers educational shows, zip lines, and exhibits of native Florida wildlife. Take a scenic short ferry ride to Fort Matanzas National Monument, a historic Spanish fort located on Rattlesnake Island. Learn about its role in protecting St. Augustine during the colonial period while enjoying views of the surrounding marshlands. Indulge in delicious cuisine at the many restaurants in St. Augustine, cafes, and eateries. From fresh seafood to international fare, there is something to satisfy every palate, including popular spots like 180 Vilano Grill and Pizza, Briskys BBQ, and Beaches at Vilano.

Heaven on Earth Island Time is a gorgeous home with the beach as your front yard. At high tide, it seemed like you could reach out the window and touch the water. The home itself is beautifully decorated with a Beachy theme throughout the home. There are a lot of stairs in the home and my older parents did have a little difficulty but not enough to keep them from enjoying themselves. During low tide, the sandbar was exposed and surrounded by tidal pools. My grandkids called it our “little island”. The home is close to a public beach access but still very little foot traffic. Especially considering it was during the 4th of July!! Mostly fishermen so we quickly learned to set out our chairs 1st thing in the morning and the fishermen respected the area. I spent every moment I could walking the beach and collecting shells. Quite an assortment to be found!! We loved the spacious covered deck area to gather and listen to the waves!! This was our second year renting a home from Wren and our experience was just as I had hoped. Very responsive and considerate hosts!! I honestly have nothing bad to say about our stay!!

Amazing ocean views Island time was the perfect beach getaway for our family. The deck was amazing and we loved that our dogs could be out there safely with us. The house is secluded and we felt as if we were at a private beach just to ourselves. Bit of a drive to attractions but well worth it since we enjoyed the beach most days. The home was nicely decorated and had everything we needed. This was our first time in Ponte Vedra and we loved the area. We are already thinking about going back next year and would definitely use Wren beach rentals again.

Great Location! Our family vacation at Island Time was wonderful! The house is beautifully decorated and well-stocked with items to make the house like home. The large porch was perfect for enjoying the early morning sunrise! The beds were comfortable and cozy. Located close enough to stores and restaurants, yet felt private and secluded at the same time. Island Time was the perfect name for this house! Next time we visit the area, we will book with Wren Beach Rentals! They manage beautiful properties in the area and were very helpful and responsive.
