About Judy Wren
Hi there! I am Judy Lombana Wren, owner (with my husband Bill) of Sandpiper's Nest, manager of several other properties, retired university professor and mental health therapist, wife, mom, grandmother, and friend! Bill (a retired airline pilot) and I live in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida and Maggie Valley, NC. I have been involved with with the ocean, beaches, homes, decorating, and people all my life. Sandpiper's Nest is our very special oceanfront home in which we take great pride and enjoy sharing with others. We hope you will love it as much as our many repeat renters do! I have been renting Sandpiper's Nest since I first bought it brand new in 1978. At the time, it was a two bedroom, two bath cottage on a fantastic oceanfront lot. Bill and I completely renovated the home in 1993, taking it to the studs, opening it more to the views and adding another bedroom and bath. It looks brand new because we are ALWAYS working on it...very important on the ocean! We bought two more oceanfront homes a few years later, and others starting asking me to manage their properties, so my rental 'hobby' quickly turned into a business. My son and daughter i law , David and Daphne Lombana, joined me in Wren Beach Rentals, and they now manage 35+ oceanfront homes in South Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beach. We take great pride in our solid relationships with both owners and renters, and we look forward to working with you!

Why Judy Wren chose South Ponte Vedra Beach
I bought Sandpiper's Nest in South Ponte Vedra Beach, because it was less than a half hour drive from my regular home, making it the ideal weekend retreat. I started renting it immediately, to help with the mortgage payments, and found that my renters also found South Ponte Vedra to be a very special community. It is perfect for vacationers who want direct oceanfront, great views, and privacy. Sandpiper's Nest sits on a 90 foot wide lot, on top of a high dune, offering panoramic ocean views. The immediate area consists of single family homes, several great restaurants, a terrific beach club (available as an option to our renters who want a pool!) and miles of wide, sandy, car-free beaches. Our renters come here because they love the privacy and the fact that we are not surrounded by high rise condos, fast food restaurants, bars, hordes of people vying for space on the beach, or cars driving on the sand! However, we are not isolated! Sandpiper's Nest is just 15 minutes from historic St. Augustine and 20 minutes from posh Ponte Vedra. We think we have the perfect beach location!
What makes this House unique
Being a one level home yet having panoramic ocean views is quite unusual. Luckily, Sandpiper's Nest is built on a high dune which offers the practicality of single story living while enjoying fantastic ocean views and lovely sea breezes. We have found that "pet friendly" means just that. Owners of dogs take good care of their pets and we NEVER have issues with dogs...so if you are not a dog owner, don't worry...you will not have to deal with pet hair, odors, or anything else that would make living in a house where dogs have been. We have some amenities at Sandpiper's Nest that are not very interesting to mention, but believe me, we have learned the hard way that you will appreciate them. First, we have a double garage. Many potential renters don't consider that very important...but you will change your mind after scraping the salt off your car if it has been sitting outside for several days! We also have a water softener. The "beach water" is extremely hard and any house that does not have a water softener is just asking for serious problems, not only with etched glassware, but also with the pipes. Showers are so much nicer when the water is soft! We have duplicates of several things: two refrigerators, two washers, two dryers, two coffee pots, two blenders, etc. etc. We have learned that things get broken unintentionally and who wants to drive all the way to Target to buy a new coffee pot? We think you will appreciate these little amenities that we provide...we want you to have a wonderful vacation, and not having to worry about everyday issues is one way to insure it. And..just in case you DO have problems...Internet won't work, garage door opener seems to have a problem, TV is too complicated for us 70 year olds, don't worry...we will do everything we can to correct issues as soon as you inform us. So...plan to relax, enjoy the house, the beach and ocean, and the surrounding towns, golf, shopping, and more!
