Morning Star, 4 Bedrooms, Ocean Front, Pet Friendly, Sleeps 10
Located beachfront in Ponte Vedra, Morning Star offers breathtaking sunrise and sunset views. And because this big, sunny house offers separate upstairs and downstairs living quarters, it's a great place for a big group or 2 families traveling together!
Morning Star sits right behind the dunes on the beach, and includes a private wooden boardwalk leading over the lush natural greenery and down to the sand. (There's even a gazebo along the way -- a great place to bring a picnic, camera, and binoculars!) Best of all, one entire side of the house is framed by a long deck with indescribable panoramic views of sand, sea, and sky!
Stand out on the deck at dawn and watch the sun rise before your eyes, streaking the sky with warm color. (Sunset is pretty terrific here too -- from Morning Star, you can watch it sink toward the horizon over Guana Park!) Count the pelicans soaring in to dive-bomb for fish in the waves, and watch the little shore birds play chicken with the surf. Stroll down to the beach and make yours the very first footprints of the day . . . and then, if the tide is low, look for shells washed in by the waves. You'll feel as though you own the entire beach and the Atlantic Ocean, too!
There's space for casual dining out on the oceanfront deck, as well as plenty of comfortable seating. Special any time of day, the deck is everyone's favorite spot at Morning Star!
Step indoors through the sliding glass doors and you find yourself in the living room of Morning Star. The new carpet feels heavenly on hot "beach feet," the chairs and sofa are very soft, and the big new HDTV with DVD player encourages you to enjoy some downtime in front of the screen. Chances are, the kids will flop right down on the carpet with their toys. It's as good a time as any to enjoy a frosty drink and a few quiet moments indoors . . .
When you wake up, refreshed from your nap, wander in the direction of the kitchen to think about dinner. The living and dining areas at Morning Star are linked, and you'll love our large, roomy, sun-splashed dining table ready to accommodate 8. This corner of the house gets southern light, and has gorgeous ocean views from behind the plantation-shuttered windows. An elegant chandelier completes the picture. What a great place for a big family meal!
The kitchen is just alongside the dining room, decorated in white so you can see just how spotless and well maintained it is. The window over the sink will have your group fighting to do the dishes -- it offers a great sunset view! However, at Morning Star nobody need bother about washing up -- the dishwasher will handle all that! Our kitchen is fully stocked with cookware and dishes, and has all the time-saving appliances you might need. Coffeemaker, microwave, blender, ice maker -- everything is waiting here!
On the far side of the kitchen is a breakfast nook with another good-sized table bathed in natural light. This is a great area to play games, work puzzles, and keep the kids occupied with paper and markers while dinner is being prepared.
And when it's time for bed, everyone will be delighted with the layout of Morning Star. Upstairs is the master suite, with a queen-sized bed, flat-screen, en-suite bath, and door leading out to the oceanfront deck. A second bedroom upstairs contains 2 twin beds, with a half-bath serving the living and dining area.
Downstairs you will find 2 more bedrooms: one with a full-sized bed, the other with a single and a trundle. One full bathroom is on this floor as well, convenient to both rooms. Beach access is super-easy from downstairs, too!
At Morning Star, you'll find all linens and towels fresh and ready, as well as a washer and dryer to keep all your vacation clothes clean. Feel free to use our barbecue grill. We've tried to think of everything to make your stay fun and easy. You're going to love it here: just 15 minutes north of St. Augustine, but so beautifully quiet and private! Book your vacation here today!
This property has optional access to the prestigious 5 diamond resort The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.

Morning Star Beach House
Reviewed on Monday, March 16, 2015
The location of this house was great. Right on the beach yet just 10 minutes from St Augustine.
The bedrooms in the house were fine with new furnishings and comfortable mattresses.
The kitchen was not properly equipped but Vacation Rental Pros reacted and brought us new dishes.
The front deck and the gazebo need new furnishings.
The beach at the house is great. We enjoyed two walks everyday with our dog. But the highway location was load and the traffic speeds were excessive.

This place had a very nice view. House was dirty with a lot of bugs. Driveway does not fit 4 cars, maybe if they are all Fiats. Tv did not work downstairs. Mold in shower. Not the best place if your accustomed to a normal beautiful beach rental. The view from the deck ( which was half painted, and dirty) was beautiful.

It started out rough. I read a review that wasn't accurate. It isn't like a duplex. The house could have been cleaner and updated. The price was in my oipinion more than it should have been. The drive way area was very small and garage was very dirty and not much room to park a vehicle thus rendering less parking space for the house. The time we spent at the house was nice and private. The bedrooms was the best rooms of the house and the view was great. A great location. It just looks like the house isn't maintaned to the value it is charging. Compared to a house down the road that rents for less and has kiaks, grill and other things to do. This is just a house to enjoy the beach, which was great. To sum it all up the house was ok, the location great, price to high, Beach was Great.
FYI the house cleaners get there right at time of check out and are very rude nearly hitting us as we pulled out of the driveway.
Great location, needs some TLC

This property is in a beautiful location with many great amenities and a nice layout! As of February 2014 it did need some TLC, though. The sliding glass door couldn't be opened, so the only exit to the deck was through one of the bedrooms. In addition, the deck needs some maintenance (lots of rusty nails) and the house needs some new pots and pans. The management company was quick and responsive when we contacted them.

Broken sliding door, very annoying! View beutiful! Driveway dangerous! Loose rails on deck dangerous for two year old with us. Rental company very attentive when air condition didn't work when we first got there. Pots and pans need replacing .
