It is fully equipped with all new stainless-steel appliances-refrigerator with ice maker and water dispenser, oven with cooktop, dishwasher, plus a beverage/wine cooler. There is plenty of cabinet space plus a food pantry. The long countertop is great for food prep! Large farmhouse wooden rectangular table that can seat up to 8 guests. A barn door divides the great room from the hallway that leads you to the bedroom area. Upstairs on the third floor is the primary bedroom. It has ocean and Guana Park views. Wake up to the sound of the waves and the views of the sunrise from your bed. The primary bedroom also has a twin day bed, love seat, and a flat screen TV. The ensuite Bathroom has 2 sinks. One sink is in a separate area allowing private usage, while the door leads to a full bathroom with a sink, bathtub-shower combo decorated with blue sea glass accent tile (jetted tub is non-working). On the main level (second floor), you’ll find three more bedrooms, a full bathroom, and laundry closet. The first bedroom is oceanfront with amazing views. It has a king bed, dresser, and a TV.

We have some great outdoor spaces at the house as well. On the 2nd floor there is a wrap-around, partially covered balcony that overlooks the ocean. The decking is made of Trex material, so it won’t splinter and feels good on your feet! There are lounge chairs, high top Adirondacks, and a picnic table on the balcony, offering a wide range of seating choices. On the ground level there are even more seating options, another picnic table, and a hammock; all under the shade of the home.

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.

Gathering of friends This lovely home sits right in north beach. The master bedroom is up a flight of stairs. Big room, nice bathroom, lots of towels. On the main level there are two adult rooms and a bunk room. One of the adult bedrooms has a tv. Downstairs on ground level is a nice bedroom with a tv and a nice bathroom. The kitchen has everything one would need to make a meal and serve it on a big table. There is one bathroom on the main living level with a shower.

Peaceful and spacious The Pelicans rest was a beautiful home, with several updates. The layout is very spacious and allowed everyone to have their privacy if needed, also large enough to entertain several people. We had a few questions when we arrived at the house, so we called and they our questions were answered right away. They were willing to come to the house right then, but there was no need since we just needed a little direction on how to operate a couple things. The cleanliness of the property was great. We have stayed at other homes within the same mile of Pelicans Rest and by far this was a very nice experience. We look forward to planning another stay here. The location is great your only 10 mins from St. Augustine and 20 to Jacksonville.

Lovely home This home is exactly as described in the listing. It's beautiful! It was immaculate, and even had a Christmas tree up, and a Ginger Bread house built and sitting as a centerpiece on the kitchen/dining table. Our family that stayed together with us concur. Should we come to Ponte Vedra Beach again, we will definitely check on it's availability. Kudos to the hosts for their outstanding communication and for showing pride in their product.
