The name says it all: Serenity Beach House is a haven of calm situated right on Ponte Vedra Beach. In fact, a private walkway connects the 3-bedroom home to the beach, enabling you to saunter over the dunes and feel the sand beneath your feet in a flash. If swimming, surfing, collecting shells and shark’s teeth, fishing, paddle boarding, building sandcastles, or stretching out on a blanket and watching dolphins play in the surf is on your list of vacation must-dos, Serenity Beach House is for you.
Even when you’re in the house or on the deck you can enjoy your oceanfront locale: The soothing rhythm of the surf, punctuated by the singing of sandpipers and terns, provides an incomparable soundtrack for your stay. The layout of the 2-story home, which was renovated and refurnished in 2016, makes it as well suited for 2 families vacationing together as for one. The 1st floor has a living room, a full bathroom, and bedroom with a luxurious king-size bed and a flat-screen TV with Google Chromecast. As well as a flat-panel TV with cable and a smart Blu-ray DVD player that provides access to Netflix and other online content, the downstairs living room has a large sleeper sofa with a memory foam queen-size mattress, so that 4 people can sleep on the 1st floor.
The 2nd floor has a large, gorgeously decorated great room, with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the Atlantic Ocean. When you’re not admiring the view, you can watch a movie on the flat-screen TV with cable and a Roku, surf the web via the free high-speed WiFi, listen to music on the stereo receiver (which is hooked up to speakers both in the great room and on the 2nd-story deck), or catch up with friends—there’s plenty of room on the sofa and armchair for everyone to get comfortable.
The dining area is just as welcoming, with a lustrous trestle table that can seat up to 8 people. If you’d rather dine outdoors (and why not? the salt-tinged ocean air makes everything taste better!), the lower-level deck is furnished with a patio table and chairs. You can cook alfresco as well, courtesy of the 6-burner gas grill; if that’s not incentive to go fishing at least once during your stay, we don’t know what is! Of course, you can show off your culinary chops indoors too, and you’ll probably want to once you see the open, well-equipped kitchen, also on the 2nd floor. The gleaming appliances include a refrigerator/freezer with an ice maker, a glass-top electric stove, a standard coffeemaker plus a Keurig single-serve machine, and a blender (milkshakes one night, margaritas the next!). There’s a dishwasher as well, plus elsewhere on the floor a washer and a dryer. The 2nd floor’s master bedroom is worthy of a 5-star hotel.
The king-size bed, like the one on the 1st floor, is fitted with a hybrid memory-foam-and-coil mattress for maximum comfort. From the bed, you can watch your favorite programs on the flat-
screen TV or watch seabirds swoop and soar over the sparkling ocean. This bedroom, like the great room, opens onto the massive upstairs wraparound deck. You and that special someone can slip out late at night to enjoy a romantic drink under the stars without waking everyone else. The 3rd bedroom, also on the 2nd floor, has a definite summer-camp vibe, thanks to the 2 sets of bunk beds with memory-foam mattresses. Every night will be a slumber party!
You could happily spend your entire vacation in the ocean, on the beach, or enjoy the amenities of the house itself. But there’s plenty more to see and do just minutes away: the historic landmarks of St. Augustine, Marineland, golf courses, hiking and biking trails, restaurants, shops...When you stay at Serenity Beach House, you’ll find it almost impossible to experience anything other than a fabulous time.
