We lived in Florida before but were driven out by the extremly high property taxes. What would the tax run for about a 2000 square foot house in Ponte Vedre?
While I’d love to answer your question, the information that you seek could be best addressed by someone at the County tax assessor’s office. The only information I have is based on my own taxes paid, and my situation might differ from yours (size and exact location of home, etc.). If there are questions you have about the activities at Del Webb Ponte Vedra, amenities, what it’s like to live there or another topic a homeowner could answer, please feel free to submit another question and I’d be happy to respond!
How far is the beach to walk. You answer a couple of Miles. can you give the exact distance to walk say from the entrance to the Beach. Is it a walkable distance. And can you have a Golf Cart and can you use the Golf cart on the walking path to the beach?
Mickler’s Landing Beach Park is 6 miles from Del Webb Ponte Vedra. The distance to walk from the entrance to the beach is approximately 500 feet. One cannot use a golf cart on the walking path to the beach. However, golf carts can be used in our Del Webb community but there are rules on where the golf cart can be kept.
We hope you will visit our wonderful community and become acquainted with Mickler’s Landing Beach!
How much are the association dues?
As far as answering your question about the association dues, I believe it would be best to talk to one of our Sales Consultants at Del Webb Ponte Vedra. They can answer details on everything that is covered under those fees. Current fees are posting on the “Homeowners Association” page of the Ponte Vedra website, and those are kept up to date.
I see that "storm room" is an option in the master WIC. I'm not familiar with the term. Why would you need this? Is it an area to protect you from a tornado?
Since you asked your questions about the storm rooms, there has been a change. These storm rooms are no longer available now. I understand that it is due to having more road systems in place now. If you have further questions about this please talk to one of our Sales Consultants at Del Webb Ponte Vedra. We hope you will plan to visit our community!
How many miles is it to the nearest shopping center?
The nearest shopping with department stores in called The Avenues Mall. It is 12 miles from Del Webb Ponte Vedra.
Are there any Public Golf Courses nearby? How many miles away are they? Are you planning to add a golf course to your community?
Yes, we do have Public and Semi-private golf courses within the area. I am not a golfer, but we do have a list that lists 4 public golf courses (18-32 miles away), 9 semi-private golf courses (10-31 miles away as well as private and resort golf courses. There are no plans to add a golf course in our Del Webb community, but I understand that land has been designated for a course in the Nocatee area, in which our Del Webb community is located along with other communities.
We do have a Men’s golf group as well as a Women’s golf group in Del Webb Ponte Vedra.
We hope that you will visit our Del Webb community and play some golf in the area!

I love the idea of Del Webb resort living, but wonder if it isn't too isolated. How long a drive to shoppping malls, movie theaters, casual dining? How difficult is it to negotiate Jacksonville for shows and special events? Does recreation organize trips into the city for cultural things? Thanks.
Forgot to ask: What is the percentage of year-around residents to snowbirds?
As a resident here in our beautiful Del Webb community for the past 4 ½ years I feel we are not at all isolated. We are about 15 minutes to the closest indoor Mall and about 20 minutes to our beautiful Town Center which has hundreds of stores! The movie theatres are 15 minutes away. We are fortunate to have the St. Augustine Amplatheaclose by as a matter of fact my husband and I went last weekend to see a concert there and are going in a few weeks to see Chicago there. The outdoor venue is about 20 minutes away too. We have the Cummer Museum close by as well. We do have bus trips in our community which take us on short day trips. The one which was really enjoyable was the trip to St. Simons Island.
My wife and I are considering relocating to your fabulous community. We know the community is pet friendly and wondering if there's been issues with barking dogs and what does a resident do if a dog is barking excessively.
As for a pet friendly community, we have many residents who have dogs. I have not felt it an issue at all with barking dogs in our neighborhood.
Do you have a sanctioned duplicate bridge club?
What is the average age of residents??
Are you city within a city? If so what does it contain???
We do have a duplicate bridge club and many other card groups including canasta. Nocatee is a planned community that has several housing developments, a beautiful New Town Center which hosts several businesses including a beautiful grocery store, hair cuttery, nails salon, yogurt shop, an eye doctor, and a veterinarian. Come out and visit our community. My grandchildren love the Splash Water Park here in Nocatee and we are about 10 minutes to the beach! Lots to do and see at our Del Webb!
Are alligators within the community boundry? Is it safe to walk a small dog (Yorkie)? Are their rules about having to have pets on a leash?
There are some alligators in our ponds here and yes we are a dog friendly community. It is safe to walk a small dog. I used to have two Yorkies myself as long as all pets are on a leash.
How much would I expect to pay in property taxes, and annually for electric and water on an approx. 1800 sq. ft. single family house? Also, I understand there are CDD fees. How much are these per year? Is flood insurance advisable?

Hello, My husband and I would like to relocate to your community. We are deciding between Del We'bb (age restricted) and Nocatee (non age restricted). We are leaning toward Del Webb. Your area is beautiful, in a great location, and the builder is well thought of. Our ages are 56 and 57.
My question: where can I find someone to help me find a long term rental in the area. We are selling our home in No VA and don't want to be homeless! Is there a realtor who would work with us?
We have so much to offer in our Del Webb community. You should come visit us. The sales consultants will be able to assist you with long term rentals in our area. We have so much to offer including a beautiful clubhouse with an indoor heated pool, outdoor pool, sauna, spa, beautiful fitness room and arts and craft rooms, including a kiln for our artsy people.
How do you compare this community and lifestyle to area country club living (pluses/minuses of each)? Related question: With Nocatee, you are with two communities, sets of amenities and fees. How worthwhile is this,considering extra cost? Thanks, Phil and Nancy with visit planned in March.
Yes our resort is gorgeous! Please plan a visit soon.
What homes are presently being built? Can you buy a piece of land to build on in about 6-9 months?
We have 10 beautiful models to choose from at our Del Webb. We do have a delay start program and you will need to talk to one of our sales consultants regarding that program.
We are concerned about storms, floods and hurricanes - what damage has been done in recent years? Any problems with flooding or hurricanes?
We have been very fortunate not to have any storm damages in our community since its inception.
Are there rules for maintaining your property (ie. plantings and painting, etc.) and who takes care of the lawn maintenance for single family homes.
Rules regarding property maintenance. We are responsible to get our own lawn service in the single family homes. Many of us in the different areas use the same lawn service which is very reasonable. We can do our own plantings in the planting beds in the front yards. Painting you can do your own on the inside. The outside homes are already painted to conform with each community.
Do you pay school taxes living in this community?
Yes we do pay school taxes.
How do the property taxes compare to similar subdivisions.
Taxes are very reasonable in our community.
Is the subdivision dog friendly?
Yes our community is very dog friendly.
I have a couple of questions:
- how many miles are you from the beach?
- are pets allowed? If so, is there a weight restriction on the pet?
We are just a couple miles over the intracoastal to the public beach named Micklers Landing. It is a beautiful beach. Yes pets are allowed. Dogs and cats.
My husband and I enjoy boating (both power and sail) - can you recommend any nearby marinas? Also, is there a "group" for boaters at the Del Webb community or in the area?
There are many clubs at our Del Webb. We do not as yet have a boaters group going but many of our residents do enjoy boating up and down the intracoastal waterways.
We just started looking for a home in the Ponte Vedra area. What are the advantages of buying in Del Webb vs. the older established subdivisions in Ponte Vedra Beach, closer to the ocean? Those communities also have clubhouses and pools.
The advantages of buying in our Del Webb Community are many! I lived in Ponte Vedra Beach myself for 7 years before moving into this community. We have a beautiful new clubhouse with an indoor heated pool, outdoor pool, sauna, spa, fitness room, beautiful ballroom just to name a few things. There is so many activities here that will keep you busy every day. We are a short distance to the ocean too. I just love it here! You would too. Come for a visit if you can!
I have been doing some looking all over the state of Florida for a place to retire somewhat close to the ocean and I like Ponte Vedra, but some of the things that concern me are that the prices of their new homes seem more expensive than other Del Webb communities and they don't even have golf courses. I like to golf and my wife likes the beach. Also, my other concern there is that there is so much there they want to develop that it might never get completed. What are your thoughts on these things?
Thanks for your question! If you have not yet visited our community, please do! We have Explore Del Webb Program that allows you to stay a couple nights and explore our community. I also play golf and the women play once a week and the men play several times a week at area courses. We seem to enjoy playing at the different courses and most of them are located nearby. If you wife enjoys the beach Micklers Landing, our local public beach is beautiful and minutes away. I have lived here for over 4 years and really enjoy this community.
If you want to go to the beach for the day, what do you do since there isn't a clubhouse for bathrooms, showers and lunch?
We do have public restrooms, showers at our local beach. Also, its fun to bring your lunch with you. If you do enjoy swimming you can go to our Anastasia Clubhouse and enjoy lunch in our café, swimming in the indoor heated pool and we do have nice, new showers.
Is it possible to rent a property ? It's a big move to leave your home in the north and come down there permanently.
It is possible to rent a property. From time to time, a rental is available. However, you would need to contact a general real estate agent to learn about any availability as the Del Webb Ponte Vedra sales office does not handle rentals. Del Webb Ponte Vedra does offer a program called Explore Del Webb where one can stay in the community for up to 3 nights and experience the Del Webb lifestyle. To get further information about this program, please call 877-847-8297. I hope that you will visit our wonderful community!
Which floorplan did you buy and why?
I have a Stetson model, which they are not building anymore. It's around 1680 square feet, but there are similar models which are just as beautiful.
Do you like the location?
I love the location. We are surrounded by beautiful nature preserves and so close to the ocean. Close to shopping. We have a beautiful clubhouse with lots of amenities.
How do single people fit in there?
Very well. We are one big family. All our activities are well attended by both singles and couples.
What do you do in your neighborhood to get together?
We do have lots of get togethers at our clubhouse but our neighborhood gets together a couple times a year and go out to dinner or have pot lucks. The ladies get together occasionally for lunch out and movie day out.
Is there anything you don't like about living there?
Yes. We don't have enough hours in the day to do all the fun things we have here at our Del Webb!
What made you decide to live there?
We looked all over this area and decided this was the place for us. Our clubhouse is gorgeous. All the people here a very friendly. It' s like resort living!
