THE BEST WEEK EVER!
We were there for a family wedding nearby.
This place is perfect!
Great location, clean, and amazing beaches and ocean access. I will try to book this place again.

The beach house was perfect for our group. There was plenty of room and plenty of space to relax. The beach was beautiful and having such direct access was wonderful. The pictures are accurate for the house and it was furnished as described.
Great Location, Poorly Cleaned
Reviewed on Tuesday, September 8, 2015
The location was great, as close to the water as you can get. The frunishing are somehat dated and the carpets in the bedromm are very worn, but it is to be expected with a pet friendly rental. The only complaint is that the house was not cleaned very well upon arrival. There was a layer of dust on just about every surface and a significant ant problem, mainly in the kitchen. Overall, for the value and the location it was a good place to stay and relax by the ocean.
Great location - solitude abounds

We had a great time with our children and grandchildren. House accommodated all 12 of us. Hope to return here next year!
Great stay for the price

The home was only ok, but the location and beach experience was perfect. The a/c unit dropped water the whole week and the DVD player would not work for the kiddos. The beach was amazing though, shells galore for kiddos to collect, and there was a perfect slew out front of the house for the kids to play in. Overall a wonderful vacation experience for the family.
The White Heron
Reviewed on Monday, March 30, 2015
We had a wonderful time at the White Heron in March. The location being directly on the beach was unbelievable - very private with miles of sandy shoreline to walk. We were lulled to sleep each night by the waves and found it so peaceful and relaxing. The only complaint I had was that the windows had a film on them which blurred the beautiful view. I ran out to Publix and bought Windex and they cleaned up beautifully - however I don't think they had been cleaned in a long time. We would love to visit again and had a splendid vacation.

The White Herron is perfect. The location is perfect. 15 minuets drive each way gives you what you need. The beach is great it is like a private beach. No crowds. House was clean and had all the amenities for a two week vacation. We will rebook and be back next year.
Good beachy location

The house is older and somewhat tired but is located directly on a nice section of beach. While the house was fairly clean, every dish, pan and utensil had to be washed before we could use it. Walls are pecky pine (large holes) and lots of dust in the holes and on the fake plants. Bring your own sheets as they aren't nice, need a salad spinner and tea kettle.

We absolutely loved our stay at the White Heron! It was everything the pictures and description promised and exactly what we were hoping for! The location is quiet and peaceful, but only minutes from the history and fun of St. Augustine. We were hesitant to book with VRP simply because we didn't know what to expect. But we will DEFINITELY be returning to this vacation home!

It was the perfect cottage and the perfect spot. When we vacation, our top priority is privacy. We practically had the beach to ourselves. The cottage was clean and spacious. Plenty of shells for our children to collect. It was a great experience.

Felt like our own private beach. Spacious enough for four adults and five children. Close to both Jacksonville and St. Augustine, yet far enough away for a quiet beach vacation.

Had my family down from up north to celebrate my daughter's graduation. Could not have picked a better place. Great memories were made and much needed down time for my love ones. Loved this house and will no doubt rent it again. Just a couple of items should be addressed: recyclable bins (we left one to make it easier for the next guests), television in master bedroom does not work, lots of spider webs on the beams & ceiling, my brother cleaned off stairs, deck and underneath the house which made a ton of difference.
The White Heron House

Nice house very comfortable. The layout of the home works well for two separate families. The beach is great. The only negative about the house was the hot water ran out very quickly. Wasn't a big deal I didn't even call maintenance about it. Everyone in our group had a very nice vacation.
Wonderful vacation experience!

Was very satisfied with the location, cleanliness and all the comforts to make it a home away from home. Would recommend it and will probably book again. A week is just not long enough! We so enjoyed our stay!!
Priceless Vacation Memory

What a great vacation. Plenty of room for all of our friends and family that came to visit us. We are local to the area but wanted to get away, so we choose to stay in Ponte Vedra on the Beach. We loved it. The home was set up perfectly for a quick getaway. They provided all the necessity’s like beach and bath towels, dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, laundry soap and a kitchen with all items you would need. We only needed to pack our bathing suites and pick up some food.
The property has great parking and they supply a huge Charcoal grill to cook on so bring some Charcoal. The home has plenty of Beds and slept 12 very easy. We even fund a roll away bed and a pack N Play in one of the closets.
We did call the Maintenance area one time to come turn up the Hot Water since we had so many taking showers. It was very easy to reach them and they came out during the time we requested and adjusted it for us.
We would stay in the same property again.

The house had plenty enough room for our large family. Had all the comforts of home. Location was great, right in the beach, we could sit on the big back deck and watch the kids play on the beach. Also loved the space under the house with shade and room for grilling and eating. It was not very far from grocery stores and the tourist areas of St Augustine. I would stay again or recommend to family and friends.

Being on the coast highway, GPS is imperative to locate after dark, pulling into drive can be scary with cars going 60. The yellow Vacation Pros sign helped locate, but it's not their only property. Nice turn-around driveway, which is essential, you wouldn't want to back out on this road. The surf is pounding, so don't worry about traffic noise, it is unheard on the rear deck. A bit dated, but very well appointed, clean and comfortable. We had 2 couples, and 2 singles with their own room, and space for more. Being early November, hardly saw anyone on the beach except the occasional walker, plenty of shells, dolphins occasionally, pelicans and small seabirds. We were in town for a wedding, and the two single sinks were a trifle limiting for 3 women to get ready, but it worked OK. We bought a couple cheap full-length mirrors, and donated, if they didn't get thrown out. Just 6 miles from a Publix grocery in Vilano, and just a few more minutes to the sights in St. Augustine. Not a bad drive into Jacksonville, either, kinda' scenic. We weren't there much during our 3-day weekend, but would have enjoyed a longer stay. The kitchen was very well appointed, as well. Much better than staying in a hotel! The nature reserve across the street was a plus, and pretty sunsets from the front porch in spite of the highway. And yes, we did see white herons!

My family and I arrived from the four corners and were thrilled at what we discovered. The house, location and amenities proved to be much more than we expected! The added bonus of perfect weather, was the icing on the cake! Would highly recommend White Heron House and Vacation Pros! Great experience all around!
Great place right on the ocean.

We enjoyed our recent stay. The house is a great place for a small family get together. It was a nice way to spend a week on the beach and there is plenty to do near by. Good dining, shopping and sight seeing. The property was well managed and they promptly took care of a small problem with an appliance. I hope to return and stay again someday. If I were to make any recommendation for improvement then it would be to clean the spider webs around the deck area a little better.
