Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

The pink sands, gentle waves, and vast blue sky of Ponte Vedra Beach are all yours at Tara’s Haven, our big beachfront house right on the dunes. Revel in gorgeous views and luxurious accommodations

Tara’s Haven overlooks one of the most beautiful beaches in northeastern Florida, a strip of coastline uncrowded by tourists and teeming with marine life, from dolphins to whales (in season). The sun rises majestically over the horizon here, looking almost close enough to touch and beautifully coloring the morning clouds all shades of pink and purple. Pelicans fly the past, terns and gulls call, and the breeze is balmy with a hint of salt.

You can enjoy all this from the oceanfront deck at the house. Filled with casual outdoor furniture, it’s a great place to relax any time of night or day. The lull of the surf is so peaceful, and the view is ever-changing. Bring a book or your computer out here (your free WiFi at Tara’s Haven works on the porch, too!) and lose yourself in the calm beauty. This is what beachfront living is all about!

When it’s time to go indoors, you’ll be delighted by how spacious, well furnished, and comfortable the house is. It’s new and very nice without being stiff or formal – the perfect combination to keep everyone in your group at ease and having fun! The design is open-plan, so the great room segues into the dining area and the kitchen. This is great during mealtime prep so that even the cooks can feel as though they’re part of the action . . . and can enjoy the ocean view from any point!

One area of the living room offers ultra-comfy couches (one of which unfolds into a bed for 2, giving some lucky folks a front-row seat for the sunrise each morning!) surrounding a big TV with cable and DVD player. Another is a conversation grouping near the oceanfront windows, perfect for intimate conversations or marine-life viewing through the big telescope. A third is a game table in a sun-drenched corner with breathtaking ocean views, just right for that jigsaw puzzle or Parcheesi tournament. Everyone can find their own ideal spot and indulge in their favorite pastimes while staying with the whole gang!

In still another part of the great room is the long wooden dining table, big enough for your whole group. Whether you’re preparing homemade feasts, getting restaurant takeout, or doing a little of everything this vacation, you’ll find that this table quickly becomes your command center. And with comfortably padded chairs, it’s a great place to linger long after the dishes are cleared, playing Old Maid with the whole family or poker for pennies.

The kitchen is adjacent to the dining area, a bright and cheerful space fully equipped with all the cookware, dishes, utensils, and appliances (large and small!) you could wish for. All it needs is a grocery run on your way into town!

There are 4 bedrooms at Tara’s Haven, each designed to deliver a great night’s sleep. The master is the most palatial, with a king-sized bed, spectacular ocean views, a flat-screen TV, and an en-suite bath. Oh, the bliss of retiring to your own niche by the sea each night!

Each of the other 3 bedrooms contains 2 twin beds, one with a flat-screen TV and all beautifully furnished. All of the linens, pillows, blankets, and towel sets for the bedrooms and bathrooms are provided for you here. And you are welcome to use the washer and dryer at Tara’s Haven whenever you like to keep everything fresh. (You’ll go through a lot of towels at the beach!)

Tara’s Haven has everything you need for a wonderful vacation

Come stay at Tara’s Haven very soon, and discover luxurious beach.

This property has optional access to the prestigious 5 Diamond resort The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.

NICE CONDO BUT, NO ATTENTION TO DETAILS!!

  • 4 of 5

The condos at CB are very nice and comfortable, however, the difference between having a great experience or, a lousy one is in the "details".<br/>Unfortunately, the owner in this unit has the "cheapest and lowest" quality linens you could find, specially the towels,these were more floor rags than towels, some of the furniture has not been cleaned or, replaced since the condo was purchased, lastly, the kitchen utensils were cheap with only one "non-stick" pan old and scratched.<br/>Summary, the experience was like staying in a Marriott Suites but, with "MOTEL 6" accessories!

Great House! Needs better maintenance

  • 3 of 5

The house it self is very nice and well decorated. A great aspect is all 4 bedrooms have windows facing the water. Got off to a poor start when we showed up for the agreed on check in time of 4:00 and house was not ready. Adequate room sizes, great central living space and a good location. The drawbacks are the lack of attention to detail. Kitchen and appliances are quite nice. Available cook wear is just OK. A large frying pan would have been nice. Pots, pans, plastic containers thrown in the cabinets haphazardly. Everything needs taken out, evaluated and returned in some sense of order. Cleanliness of the utensils also questionable. Lack of paper products also a bit annoying. No Kleenex, 1 partial roll of toilet paper per bath room. And after we filled up the trash can in the kitchen discovered that was the only bag on the premises. A working grill and deck chairs would also have been nice.

Bottom line is the house is really nice, the maintenance person should be replaced and with a bit more attention to detail I would have given the house a 4.

Nice area with plenty of things to do.

  • 4 of 5

Nice house with a great view. May need some more utensils and pots. The view is great and the beach is private. We will be back for sure.

The house itself was very nice

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was very nice as shown on the website. There were some housekeeping issues with the cleanliness of the showers that were minor but annoying. They could use some nice outdoor seating on the deck. There were only 2 plastic chairs and no table to eat outside.

The grill was very rusted and in my opinion not usable. The grounds around the house are strewn with broken pools, sand toys etc. Not very pleasant to look at. If you are taking your pet be aware that the areas around the house for them to use are overgrown and strewn with litter. The garbage was not picked up and the container for cans was overflowing. They were quick to remedy the problem with trash pickup but not the cans. I'm not sure I would stay there again. If I was the owner I would make some major improvements especially to the outside.

House is good. Beach is heavily eroded.

  • 3 of 5

Came here with my family for spring break 2018. House was clean, in good shape with only some minor repairs needed. Loved the layout and it was pretty close to St. Augustine. The kitchen was well stocked with nice appliances.

Just a couple of cautions to note: 1 - The beach has been heavily eroded. You have to pay attention to low tide if you want to be able to use the beach. 2 - The grill is unusable.

Hope that helps!

Nice large gathering space, comfortable bedrooms and beds, updated kitchen, great location with beac

  • 3 of 5

The place needs some work on it. The carport is junky and needs painting. Not a good first impression- not sure we wanted to go in. The entrance keypad is corroded and didn’t work consistently. In the north bathroom, the bathtub is cracked in the bottom and the sliding door is not attached at the bottom, very unsafe. The south bathroom had dirt smears around the doors and baseboards. The whole unit was not well cleaned. The south bedroom door frame was chipped and raw splintering wood was a safety hazard. We enjoyed our stay in spite of these things but will not return to this location unless repairs and problems are resolved.
