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

Each of the other three bedrooms contains two 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 a luxurious beach.

Guest Rating for Tara's Haven
Perfect in every way. House was exactly as pictured and desceibed. Wonderful customer service. Bravo
The house was wonderful. Beautifully decorated, comfortable furniture, best equipped kitchen I’ve ever worked in. Only steps from the beach and for folks who wanted to stay inside and read, the wall of windows offered a perfect panoramic view. An absolutely ideal beach vacation!
Excellent
Property was excellent! Greatly enjoyed our stay!
Good vacation house.
Place is good for a week at the beach. Can’ Best the location and easy access to the beach. Close enough to St. Augustine to see the sights or grab a bite to eat but secluded enough to enjoy an almost private beach. We had a great stay. It is a little run down not a mansion by any means. The bathrooms are small but adequate. Only real complaints were the WiFi was not working when we got there and the back door was left open. Someone had been in the house before we got there. VTrips responded immediately to the issues and were very attentive to all our needs.
Beautiful location and spacious house
We spent one week at Taras heaven and it was a wonderful stay for the eight of us. Beautiful location and yet within five miles of amenables such as restaurants and supeamenable.
Very nice
It was very nice, the minor issues we had were fixed quickly. Would stay there again. Great place for the money.
Wonderful home with a great beach !
We had a wonderful girls vacation! The house was spacious, the 4 of us had our own rooms, and there was an ocean view from all rooms!! The beach is flat and wide here and this was one of the few homes that did not lose the dunes from last years hurricanes! The weather was a little cool so the side deck was perfect to block the wind and still be comfortable outside at 70 degrees ! I certainly would come back to this week appointed home.
Our stay was great.
If I had one criticism it would be for the barbecue equipment. You need new grills.
Nice area with plenty of things to do.
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.
Ocean views everywhere!
This was a really nice property. We were specific about booking an ocean front house and loved this one because it has ocean views from the den and all four bedrooms. Helpful extras: there's an outside shower, we appreciate the covered parking, washer/dryer big dining table and the house is very open and user friendly. It's also close to a Publix and St. Augustine. The kitchen is small but open to the den. There are two full baths but no real master bathroom and the master bed was big but a bit uncomfortable. Maybe too soft. That being said, we still enjoyed every minute of our time in this house!!
It is beautiful! We absolutely love it!
Great location
We celebrated my birthday in this home and we absolutely loved it! The pictures didn't give it justice-- the house was fantastic and the location was beautiful. Everything was in close range to drive to or just hanging at Tara's Haven was relaxing and everything we hoped for. We definitely want to come back again and would recommend it to anyone.
Couldn't really tell about the steps from pictures.
3133S. Ponte Vedra
The house was comfortable and had a few Christmas decorations, which were welcome. The weather was perfect and the beach right down the steps. The best of our total of 4 rentals from Vacation Pro.
Family Christmas Vacation
We had a wonderful time at our Vacation Rental. The place was perfect for our large family and we couldn't have asked for a better location. The place does need some sprucing up, i.e. deck walkway to the beach is in need of repair, some furniture could be replaced, but overall it was perfect for a relaxed family week vacation.
Great vacation
we had a group of ten the house was great, weather and beach awesome. Would recommend to anyone.
family vacation 2015
We enjoyed our stay at this rental property. It is very nice. It is spacious and has a large eating area for a family--two large tables that accommodated our family nicely. The kitchen could use a few more cooking utensils, but this was not a problem for us because I had taken a good many with me to the property. We did like this house very much. We will probably return next year to this same property for our family vacation. The only thing that was a surprise to us was that we had to pay $240 to use the pool that renters of this house were allowed to use. Perhaps, it was in some of my information sent to me by the rental company. However, if it was, I missed it somehow.
Tara's Haven
Very happy with the overall rental
Great layout and location. Deck needs some work.
Very good location close to Vilano Beach Publix, etc. and nice floor plan layout for a family vacation with split bedroom wings. Each bedroom has a ocean view. Downstairs toilet needs new tank valve as it barely functions and is so slow it is useless. Called for repair and got a call back but nobody ever showed up to make the repair so the first floor bathroom was not used. Deck and walkway to beach are very weathered, worn and missing several side boards. Accordingly small children and pets must be watched carefully or they could crawl under and fall off of the deck. A dangerous condition that should be addressed immediately.
Beach challenge
We had a good family experience at Tara's Haven with the house. We weren't prepared for how narrow the beach is at high tide. This curtailed some of our sitting on the beach in the morning and flying kites! Just wanted others to know - be prepared to know when high tide is and work around it! Aim for beach activity at low tide!!
Perfect Week
Our family of 5 ranged in aged from 19 to 73. Everyone had a blast!!
Tara 's Haven Review
The house was terrific. The view fabulous. The only thing we would like to see is a bug spray treatment for roaches that seemed to be in the kitchen.
Great Stay! Comfortable beds!!!
Tara's Haven was perfect for our families! There was plenty of space, the beds are amazing! (Usually you you don;t sleep to well when away from home & we all slept like babies)
Definition of a perfect vacation!
When we arrived the house was beyond our expectations! Very clean and stocked well with kitchen cookware! We also found some board games that we enjoyed playing while watching the waves outside the window! We definitely plan on returning back to this house next year! One of the best vacations we ever had. The grill was perfect touch to a beach vacation. The only suggestion we have is to have the windows cleaned before each check in. It was hard to see the view through the salt air windows!
staycation
Enjoyed the days at the beach.
Wonderful vacation and I look forward to staying again next year
Walked in and the place looked great. There was one hick up though and that was the WiFi was down. Big issue since I have to work while on vacation. Not happy at all and was unable to attend to my clients. However the management company stepped up. They invited me to their office, set me up a cubical and I was able to attend to business. The owners authorized a complete new Wifi system and new cables were put in etc. I was back in business and able to relax. There were fishing rods there and with a few minutes of repair they were ready to go. My son and I had a blast catching Whiting off the beach and they were delicious. The girls enjoyed the deck for sunning and the beach was beautiful. Location was perfect. Short drive to St Augustine and all the wonderful restaurants and shops. Also a short drive to some of the best hiking and biking trails around. Some guests mentioned the decorations a bit dated and yes they are, but seriously, who cares it was clean and very nice. Get over it. :) I highly recommend this property.
Spacious house, great view
The house was just as promised. Plenty of amenities and the view was spectacular. We spent all our time on the deck or on the beach.
Weekend stay at Tara haven
We had a wonderful time. Thank you
Family Vacation
Overall it was a great week. The house was under repairs, which was a little upsetting. The layout was perfect. Beautiful location and just a 10 min drive to St Augustine.The whole family had plenty of room. The house needs some updating. We had a great time and would definitely go again.
So so
This is the first time I have rented from Vacation Rental Pros. Customer Service was great and very helpful when making arrangements. This made me hopeful for our experience with the house. When we arrived, they were STILL CLEANING. They said they needed an additional 30 minutes. We had a scheduled dinner with family and the timing was NOT ideal especially when we even arrived 45 min after check-in time. We made the best of it and went to the local Publix to pick up groceries while we waited. Once we got back from dinner, we noticed that we had ANTS crawling on the food that was just purchased! So needless to say EVERYTHING went into the fridge for the week. Also later on that evening there was a roach found crawling on the staircase. Bugs seemed to be a common theme with VERY large ants all over the back porch so we were unable to really enjoy the beautiful view sitting out there. Also on the walkway to the beach, the foliage seems to be overgrown apparently making it a stomping ground for ticks. My husband found 2 on himself and 1 on the dog. The house generally is nice, but it does not have a 'home' feeling to it. A lot of the décor just seemed to be thrown together. The bedrooms were fine but the master bed is SUPER noisy and hard. There is also quite a bit of rust around which makes it impossible to close the storage doors in the parking area and it seems like the chairs and toys need to be replaced (along with the grill). I do not think I would come back to this property unfortunately.
Serenata Beach Club was beautiful as expected. The pools are well kept and food is spectacular!
AWESOME LOCATION
The house was perfectly located and had plenty of room for all of our family. I loved the open layout of the kitchen and living area. We even saw a sea turtle come up from the ocean, dig a hole, lay her eggs and head back into the water. It was a beautiful site and we cannot wait til we go back next year!
Great location
The home is perfectly located, and the beach club membership was a good addition for our group. This house needs a good scrubbing and painting, but it was fine for our purposes. There was room for our party of 9 and we enjoyed our family reunion.
First Family Vacation
This was our family's first beach house rental. We had 8 people including our son, my sister and her children, and my parents. The house was in a great location. Groceries and fuel were close and St. Augustine was just up the road. Made a great day trip with the family. This house was perfect for a multi-generational vacation. The kids could be on the beach while the grandparents rested in the house or watched from the deck. It was a great experience. The house was definitely showing some wear and tear but was well kept and clean when we arrived. My only complaint would be the beds. They were all very hard and squeaky. Kitchen was well-stocked and we were able to cook for 8 people easily. We had a small leak under the sink but maintenance came the next day and fixed it and he was very friendly. There was a hot tub advertised on the property but there was no hot tub. No big deal for us but should probably be changed in the advertisement. Dealing with Vacation Rental Pros was a very pleasant experience and we would use this company again.
House in need of updating
The house had all the amenities needed but the furniture was dated, the bathrooms need remodeling, the BBQ grill needs to be replaced and the railings need to be fixed(I got a splinter).
Tara's Haven
We had a great time at the beach house! However, there is one small "complaint." The master bedroom bed was not really comfortable. The mattress was hard and the bed squeaked every time you turned over. Other than that, we loved it! Plan to be back next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beach House
Great stay just a few steps from the beach. We would love to stay in the house again!! Access to the serenata beach club was also a plus.
Ocean Vacation
Had a wonderful time with our children and grand kids. Location and house was great. Only disapointment was the cleanness when we arrived.
Family Vacation
This get away was 2 years in the making and lived up to all of our expectations. The house is ideally situated on a very lovely beach providing sun, surf and sand. Our children and grand children loved the easy access to the beach and enjoyed the sunrise on the deck. I would recommend this site to anyone. The house is well equipped, just fill the fridge and relax. Thank you VRPros for making this an enjoyable holiday, we will return.
Perfect Family, Perfect Place
For my husband and I, sharing experience with our children and grandchildren was the most valuable Christmas present to them that we could think of so this trip had been planned and anticipated for months.
The location of the house was perfect. The beach was only steps away and never crowded. The size and floorplan of the house was perfect. Each bedroom had a big window facing the ocean that we opened for the sea breeze and sound of the waves. Some windows were rusty and wouldn't open and none of them had screens so it was a good thing that no bugs had come out early in the season. The family,dining,kitchen area was plenty big enough for all ten of us with a big game table for puzzles. We played the sound system for music but never tried out the televisions. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses, and cooking pots so we made most of our meals there. Most glasses needed washing before use, but we could have been the first rental of the season and the sea air did the same thing to the windshield of my car in a few hours.
The only complaint we had is a toilet that kept running the whole time. Maintenance was called and came to fix it but whatever was done didn't work. The sound of it all night and the wasted water were irritating but not upsetting.
All told, the place was great and we would go back again.
Run With Donna 13.1
One of the nicest houses we have stayed in at the beach. Very roomy and comfortable. Would not hesitate to return again next year. Thank you very much.
Our stay...
We enjoyed our stay at Tara very much. It is in a great location and convenient to restuarants, shopping, and attractions.
