I was wondering if the grass (turf) of the community and the private residences remains green during the "winter" or if it turns brown?
Thank you for your interest in our community. We do have three kinds of grasses that are used in our community. The Zoysia grass is the one that has the most tendency to turn brown during winter but there is no guarantee that it will. If it does, it is just for a short cycle.
We hope you will visit our beautiful community before long if you haven’t already!
My wife and I are avid cyclists. Is there a club or group of people that like to go on 10-30 mile bike rides?
My wife likes to plant flowers, can you put a garden in the front and back yards?
Thank you so much for your interest in our community! We do have a Del Webb biking interest group. However, I am not sure how far the participants bike. Concerning flower plantings, additional flowers can only be planted within the already existing beds. However, if one wants to plant flowers elsewhere on the property, a form must be submitted to the HOA for approval. Also, we do have an avid garden club that one can join. A plot can be purchased to plant vegetables and flowers if one wishes to do so. If you need further information about either of your questions, please call your sales consultant at 904-217-0005. If you do not have one, please call 904-217-0005 to speak to one.
We hope you will visit our community soon!!
I am assisting my dad in finding a place to move. He loves to work with wood and build furniture and such. Do you have a wood shop or would it be allowed for him to put a shed type of shop on his property?
Thank you for your interest in Del Webb Ponte Vedra! Unfortunately, our Del Webb community does not have a wood shop. Slince we are a growing community, activities are still being added for our residents to enjoy. You might want to speak with our Lifestyle Director, Judy Agliata (contact info: jagliata@fsresidential; 904-83403400), about the possiblility of an interest group being established. Concerning building a shed type structure on one’s property, a resident needs to submit an application to The Architectural Review Committee for approval. If you need further assistance concerning this, please feel free to speak with our Community Manager.
We hope you will come to visit our beautiful community before long!

Are there any homes with a poop?
In answer to your question about pools, having a home built with a pool is an option. Some people have purchased this option and some people have built a pool after their home has been constructed. The spec homes when available do not have pools.
Thank you so much for your interest in our community!
Because of the proximity of your community to the Ocean, is hurricane or food insurance required? Thank you!
Thanks you very much for your interest in our community. In answer to your question, flood insurance is not required.
Are motorcycles allowed in the community?
Yes, motorcyles are allowed in the Del Webb community.
My spouse and I play party bridge, cards, and board games. We golf, he is passionate about fishing, and I like aquatic exercise. I also enjoy book club, and music and theater. Do you have groups for these activities? Is there a social director at Ponte Vedra? Is there a group of men who fish the ocean? What's the closest marina, and do they have charter boat which offers fishing regularly?
It sounds like you would enjoy many of our activities that are offered to our residences at Del Webb Ponte Vedra. We do have open bridge, duplicate bridge, and canasta clubs as well as a nonfiction book club and a fiction book club. An interest group has been established for Pinochle and Euchre cards games. We do have a performing arts club which entails music and acting. Since we are a growing community, new activities are still being developed. We have a wonderful lifestyle director with whom you may like to speak with. Her name is Judy Agliata and she can be reached at 866-224-4231. I am sure she would be happy to answer any questions you may have. If there is not an activity that is available here, Judy is very open to listening to residents about the possibility of getting new activities started. Unfortunately, I do not know of a group of men who fish the ocean but there are those that love fishing. I have no information about which is the closest marina and if the marina offers a charter boat fishing trip on a regular basis. However, if you Google “Charter Boat Fishing in Jacksonville, FL” it would give you a start to gather more information.
In your opinion, is your community very "laid back?" I am concerned that since Ponte Vedra, generally speaking , is more of an "upscale, luxury" town, that the Del Webb residents may be stand-offish. Can you generally wear "flip-flop" garb most of the time? I just don't know if my retired, very casual life-style would fit in at DWPV. We lived in Miami for 5 years and everyone got so dressed up all the time....I am no longer looking for that lifestyle.
I would call our Del Webb Ponte Vedra community a very friendly, casual community. I would say “flip-flop” garb is acceptable most of the time unless the occasion dictates another form of dress such as business casual or if a formal event were to be held.
I hope you visit our beautiful Del Webb community to see what a friendly community it is and to see the lifestyle that exists here!
Hello there, I have a couple of questions please...how is drainage at Del Web Ponte Vedra, do they have rain basins or run offs to insure little or no pooling/flooding? I see Pulte is the builder, does that mean Del Webb is done building, and it's Pulte from here on, quality as good? lastly, how many are actually built? I understand 650+ are sold? Thank you very much!! Bob
Your question about drainage, runoffs, rain basins and the quality of construction can best be answered by one of our sales consultants. If you do not have a sales consultant at Del Webb Ponte Vedra, please call to speak to one or if you do have one, please call and ask to speak to that particular sales consultant. To speak to a sales consultant, please call 866-224-4231.
Pulte Homes bought Del Webb in 2001. As a owner of a Pulte Home in Del Webb Ponte Vedra since 2008, I can tell you we have not had a problem with the quality of the construction of our home.
We hope you will visit our beautiful Del Webb community and check-out the quality construction for yourself!
Are there future plans for a golf course within the Nocatee community?
I understand that land has been set aside for a potential golf course within Nocatee, but there is no guarantee of there ever being one within the Nocatee development. We do have a Del Webb Ponte Vedra women’s 18 and 9 hole golf groups and a Del Webb Ponte Vedra men’s golf group that meet on a regular basis and enjoy golfing at the various many courses nearby.
Thank you for your interest in our Del Webb Community! We hope you will come visit us and play golf at one of our nearby courses!
Is there a weight restriction for dogs. Want to make sure Charlie the Famous poodle will be welcome. Thanks-John G
There is no weight restriction for dogs in our Del Webb Ponte Vedra community. However, one household is limited to two dogs. Fortunately for our canine friends, we do have a dog park in Nocatee and a few others in the area.
We hope you will visit our beautiful community soon!
I enjoy an all volunteer community chorus here in Ohio and will miss that if we relocate. Can you tell me if there is any such thing in the Del Webb area? Thank you very much! Also, what kinds of volunteer opportunities are available in the area?
I am so delighted to hear that you volunteer your time singing with a volunteer community chorus! I do not know if there is a volunteer community chorus in our area, but there are many choruses affiliated with various groups. Perhaps you would like to speak with our lifestyle director, Judy Agliata, about the opportunities for a chorus at Del Webb or perhaps she might have knowledge of a volunteer chorus in the area. At this time, we do have a Performing Arts Group at Del Webb. As far as other volunteer opportunities in the area, there are many that one can participate in. Generally, there are many of the same kind of opportunities in the area as you would find in any other locale of this size.
We hope you will be visiting our beautiful community before long!
I have a gas golf cart, can I use it on the roads or does it have to be electric?
Unfortunately, resident carts operated in the community must be electric and not gasoline powered. I hope this will not deter you from considering our beautiful and wonderful community as a place to live. Thank you for your interest in Del Webb Ponte Vedra!
We hope we will see you soon!
Is Del Webb Ponte Vedra a natural gas community? Do any of the homesites have a pond or water view?
Del Webb Ponte Vedra is not a natural gas community. However, some residents have gotten propane gas buried in a tank. We do have home sites that do have a pond view. To find out what is available and the availability of future lots, please ask to speak to your sales consultant at Del Webb Ponte Vedra (866-224-4231). If you do not have a sales consultant, please call 866-224-4231 and ask to speak to one.
I hope you will be able to visit our beautiful Del Webb Ponte Vedra Community soon!
Hello, We have been looking at DWPV as a place to hopefully retire at and I see you or some have lived there since 2008. I understand they have 1988 homes planned, how many are completed at the present time, and what is the expected completion timeframe. Unfortunately we are not in position yet but will be in 3 years possibly a bit sooner. We would buy new if they are still building and we would consider buying from an owner if no more are being built. Thank you!
I am so delighted to hear that you are interested in possibly moving to our wonderful community. You are correct that 1,988 residences are planned to be completed in our community. As of this date, 643 residences have been sold. Since I do not have any information about the completed timeframe for the community, I suggest you call your sales consultant at Del Webb Ponte Vedra at 866-224-4231. If you do not have a sales consultant, please call 866-224-4231 and ask to speak to one.
We hope that you will be visiting us before long!
What percent of owners are twelve months residents?
Thank you for your interest in our beautiful Del Webb Ponte Vedra Community! Unfortunately, I do not have exact percentages pertaining to twelve month residents. However, based on my own knowledge, I feel the majority of our residents that do reside in our community are twelve month residents.
I hope if you have not seen this community that you will do so soon! If you have visited us, I hope you will return before long!
My husband and I are in the age group of 55 to 60 year. Would we fit into the Del Webb Nocatee Community? Are there a lot of younger retired people?
Yes, you would definitely fit into the Del Webb Nocatee Community! This is a fifty-five and over active community! Some of our residents continue to work while others are retired and very much enjoying the lifestyle that our Del Webb community offers. It is a very friendly environment here and many activities are offered for you to pursue. I hope you will visit our beautiful Del Webb Ponte Vedra community soon!
Are any of your residents retired military? I'm wondering if I will be able to use Tricare for retirees in this area of the country.
Yes, we do have some residents that are retired military. I do understand that Tricare is accepted in the area as we do have Naval facilities here.
If you have not yet visited our beautiful community yet, we hope you will do so and if you have, we hope you will return soon!
Is the environment ( minus construction) pretty peaceful and quiet ?
Also, was there any one thing that surprised you, something you didn't expect, when you moved into this community?
Yes, the environment at Del Webb Ponte Vedra is quiet and peaceful (aside from the construction). Neither my husband nor myself has encountered any problem with noise in the neighborhood. Actually, nothing surprised us after moving into the community about the community. It is a wonderful place to live and I hope that if you have not visited it yet, that you will do so soon. If you have, we hope that you will return soon!
My husband enjoys classic and antique cars as well as air rifle and pistol shooting. I don't see any of these types of clubs listed. Do you know of any groups in the area that are involved with cars or guns?
I, personally, do not know of any classic or antique car groups in the area. However, someone provided me with the following website that may be of interest to you: http://www.carshowjax.com/clubs.html
I also do not know of any gun clubs in our area. However, we do have a Sports Club interest group at our DWPV community that explores interest in target shooting, fishing, archery, skeet shooting, personal safety and kayaking.
Thank you so much for your interest in Del Webb Ponte Vedra Community! I wish that I could have been more helpful to you!
We hope you will be visiting our wonderful community soon!
What is the size of the community?
Thank you for your interest in our Del Webb Ponte Vedra community! It is my understanding that we will eventually have 1,988 residences and the community will encompass about 2,000 acres.
We hope you will visit our wonderful community soon if you have not already been here. If you have, we hope you will return soon!
Sometimes water near the beaches have an aftertaste. How do you rate the taste of water? Do you know if houses are build with filtration systems(i.e. removes chlorine/fluoride etc.,) from city water supply, or would you encourage having a house system installed?
Is there a gun club or group that meet regularly?
It is hard for me to rate the taste of water because everyone has a different standard. Houses are not built in our Del Webb community with filtration systems, but one can easily be added.
We have lived in Del Webb Ponte Vedra for 5½ years and just recently have put in an electronic system. I do know that residents have installed systems, but do not know the percentage that have.
Yes, we do have a Sports Club that has been established as an interest group at Del Webb Ponte Vedra. The purpose of this group is to explore interest in target shooting, fishing, archery, skeet shooting, personal safety and kayaking.
If you have not visited our Del Webb Ponte Vedra community, we hope you will soon! If you have, we hope you will return before long!
Looking at home photo's/packages, what is the policy on solar? For example, can solar panels and or solar air vents be installed?
Unfortunately, I am not knowledgeable about the policy on solar. I suggest you contact your sales consultant at our Del Webb Ponte Vedra office or you if you do not have one, please call 866-224-4231 and ask to speak with one.
I hope that if you have not visited our wonderful community yet, that you will soon!
Is there a beach club that you would recommend joining? Do other residents recommend joining a particular one? I see there is one that offers a deal to buyers.
I know that there are beach clubs that one can join. However, my husband and I do not belong to one and have not looked into these. I, personally, do not know if residents recommend joining a particular one. I would suggest speaking with your sales consultant if you have one at our Del Webb Ponte Vedra office to get information about the beach clubs and any deals that might be available to buyers. If you have visited our community, we hope you will be back soon. If not, we hope you will plan to see our wonderful community before long!
What do your utilities run a month- electric, water, garbage, etc. I'm looking at a Garden home.
Happy New Year to you!! I hope you had a good holiday as well!! Unfortunately, I really can't help with the info about the utility costs that you are requesting for a garden home because my husband and I live in a larger house than those in the Garden series. My suggestion would be for you to speak with your sales consultant at Del Webb Ponte Vedra about this. If you do not have one, please feel free to call 866-224-4231 and ask to speak with a sales consultant.
If you have not visited our community yet, I hope that you will be coming soon to see what a wonderful community it is! If you have had the opportunity to see the community, I hope you will be back to visit before long!!
Are you able to have Chinese food or pizza delivered?
Thank you for your interest in DWPV! Yes, we do have a couple of places that will deliver pizza! Also, we do have one place that will deliver Chinese food!

Where do you pick up mail, i notice they don't have mailboxes in front of the homes?
Mail is picked up at the mailbox which is placed at the curb very close to your home. These are put in place when the house is close to completion.
I hope you will be making a return visit to our wonderful community soon!
Hi..We will be locating in the Del Webb community soon Am not familiar with the C.DD term and fee. Could you enlighten me. Also aren't the school taxes a part of the real estate taxes paid and not separate? Thank you.
I am so delighted to hear that you will be relocating to our Del Webb community soon! I think it would be best if you contacted your sales consultant at the Del Webb Ponte Vedra Sales Office to get the info about the CDD and fees as well as discussing the taxes.
Hope to see you soon!!
Are there plans for any new models to be built at Ponta Vedra other than the existing ones you have now?
Thank you for your interest in our Del Webb Ponte Vedra community! I do not have access to that knowledge about future models being planned for our community. However, you are welcome to call to speak to a sales consultant at 866-224-4231 concerning this.
I hope that you will visit our community soon!
Where is the nearest bank? Do they have credit unions down there?
Thank you for your interest in our community! At this time, the closet bank to Del Webb Ponte Vedra is the Wells Fargo Bank (approximately 5-5.5miles), but there are others in the surrounding area. Yes, we do have credit unions in the area including the Navy Federal Credit Union.
We hope you will visit our wonderful community!!
Does the price of home includ the lot? What is the appoximate annual real estate taxes? How much per month is the Home Owner Fee?
Love your location by the sea or close to it. Used to live in the Del Webb community in Sun City, Arizona, so I have some knowledge of them and Pultre Homes. Thanks for the reply. Henry
Thank you so much for your interest in our community! I wish I could answer your questions about pricing, taxes, and fees, but it would be best if you spoke with a sales consultant at the Del Webb Ponte Vedra community. If you have already spoken with a sales consultant at our Del Webb Ponte Vedra sales center, please call 866-224-4231 and ask to speak with that person. If you have not spoken to a sales person here, please call 866-224-4231 and ask to speak to one. He or she would be more than happy to assist you.
Would llike to know about heath care facilities in the area.
Healthcare facilities in this area are plentiful. The closest hospital, Baptist Medical center South, is 13 miles from our community. We have quite a number of hospitals in the greater area as well. The Baptist Health System and the Mayo Clinic (16 miles from our community) are two of the bigger healthcare systems in the area. People that I have spoken with have been pleased with their medical care that they have received and my husband and myself have not had any complaints either.
We hope that you will come to visit our wonderful community soon!!
Does Del Webb Ponte Vedra have a program with the Osher Life Long Learning Institute? What local college or university is it linked with? How does it work - are courses held at DWPV? What types of courses do they offer? Is there a link to more information? Thank you.
Del Webb Ponte Vedra is not affiliated with the Osher Life Long Learning Institute. However, our residents can participate in the program. Osher Life Long Learning Institute in the area is linked with the University of North Florida. Many of the courses are offered at the university; some are offered at a few other locations in the area. Some of the course offerings are in the humanities, sciences and technology. For further info online, look at the following website: www.unfolli.com
Thank you for your interest in our community! We hope you will visit us soon!
Signs at the corner of Del Webb Parkway and Crosswater Parkwater say "No Golf Carts Beyond This Point". How can someone get to the shopping center via a golf cart? Thank you for your time.
One can go across the street to where the Coastal Oaks community is and turn right on the sidewalk. Go down a short distance and you will find an entrance to the trail that will take you to the shopping center.
We hope you will be able to experience the beautiful trail system that Nocatee has to offer!
Yes, pools can be built on some lots. You would need to speak with one of our sales consultants about this. If you do not have a sales consultant, please call 866-224-4231 and we will be happy to have one speak with you. Thank you so much for your interest in our beautiful Del Webb Ponte Vedra Community!
We hope you will come for a visit soon!
Hello - are the attached carriage homes the only homes in DWPV that include exterior maintenance in exchange for a condo fee? Are there any free-standing homes that have that arrangement?
Also, are any of the homes in DWPV within government-defined high risk flood zones?
And, I noticed that the homes I looked at online do not have fireplaces or screened in lanais. How many homes in DWPV come with those features? Thank you.
We do have a condo building that has been sold out for quite some time and the carriage homes have been sold out as well and these are the ones where fees include exterior maintenance. All of our free standing homes must be maintained by the owners themselves. Many do choose to hire help to do the maintenance work or it can be done by the owners themselves if preferred. For your other questions, I feel that they can best be answered by one of our sales consultants. If you have one, please contact your consultant at 866-224-4231 who will be happy to answer your other questions regarding homes within government-defined high risk flood zones and how many homes come with fireplaces or screened in lanais. If you do not have a consultant, please do call the number mentioned above and the consultant will be happy to answer your questions.
We hope you will come visit our beautiful community!!
I'm very interested in moving to Del Webb Ponte Vedra- the location is perfect for me. My concern is that I'm single and most of the social events, clubs and activities are designed for couples. Is Del Webb Ponte Vedra a good fit for single adults?
I'm so delighted to hear that you are interested in moving to Del Webb Ponte Vedra!! I cannot answer your question from a personal standpoint, because I am not a single person. I can tell you that we do have single people living in our community who do attend many of the activities that couples do! We actually do have a singles group here as well! I would suggest that perhaps to get a better feel for yourself that you consider participating in the Explore Del Webb program. This would allow you to stay in the community and actually participate in activities that are geared for all to attend and perhaps visit us when you can attend a Singles Group meeting when it is held so you could get more information with the “singles”. You may contact your sales person if you are already working with one, or call 866-224-4231 to get in touch with one.
We hope to see you soon!
I have dogs and love privacy. Do they have a restriction on the fence you can install in your backyard?
Thank you for your interest in our Del Webb community! We do have restrictions as far as what type of fencing can be installed. A homeowner must submit an application for a fence to be installed and it requires an architectural review committee approval.
We hope that you will visit our wonderful community soon!
We are getting ready to put our house on the market and are considering the neighborhood. Is it possible to come and visit? Also, how quiet is the subdivision? We have lived with a noisy neighbor and are now wanting peace and quiet. As in no loud music blaring from someone's backyard.
I am so delighted that you are interested in visiting our beautiful Del Webb Ponte Vedra community! Yes, you may come to visit and even stay with us by participating in the Explore Del Webb program. I would suggest that you call our Del Webb Ponte Vedra Sales Center at 866-224-4231 and ask to speak to one of our sales consultants about visiting the community and learning about the Explore Del Webb program.
My husband and I have lived in the community since 2008 and have had no problems with noisy neighbors. That probably is the case in general in this neighborhood. However, just like in any neighborhood, you might hear that occasional laughter or music! I myself have not heard of neighbors complaining about noise.
We hope we will see you soon!
My husband and I have recently purchased a homesite. We will be visiting DWPV soon to choose colors....Is there anthing that you recommend we choose that maybe you would've chosen had you known, ex. more lighting? Also does anyone living there ever complain of flooding? What are your taxes like? I realize that if you are a permanent resident they are a bit cheaper.
J n D
Congratulations on purchasing your homesite! We moved to DWPV in 2008, so not being a sales consultant, I am not certain if the same colors are being used now as when we purchased. The colors I feel are very pleasant and that you probably can’t go wrong with any of them.
We did have a little more inside lighting added after we moved in.
I am not aware of any complaints about flooding.
As far as taxes are concerned, it would be best to discuss this with your sales consultant.
We look forward to seeing you at DWPV!!
Are there pharmacies, food stores, doctors etc. accessible by golf carts as is the case in Sun City near Hilton Head? Also, how close is the beach? Can you get there in a golf cart?
Our Nocatee Town Center is accessible by golf cart. Thus far this town center includes a grocery store with a pharmacy, Liquor store, hair salon, a vet, an eye doctor, a restaurant, frozen yogurt shop, a cleaners, and a nail salon. I believe a dentist will be joining the town center before long. As more residents move into Nocatee (of which Del Webb Ponte Vedra is part of) more businesses should folow!
The closest beach is about 6 miles away, but is not accessible by golf cart.
We hope you will come to visit our wonderful Del Webb Ponte Vedra Community!
Are house guests over the age of 55 allowed to use the Del Webb facilities when they are visiting a resident. If yes, do they apply for a temporary pass. Is there a charge for the temporary pass or is it free.
House guests over the age of 55 are allowed to use the Del Webb facilities when they are visiting resident. A temporary pass is not needed, but the resident must accompany the guest and remain with the guest while using the facilities.
Since the Del Webb community is surrounded by a state forest, I have two questions. Is hunting allowed in the state forest surrounding the community and do they treat the community for mosquito's especially during the summer months
Our community is surrounded by a preserve. Hunting is not allowed any time during the year. Our community is treated for mosquito's but a resident needs to call the Mosquito Control Board in St. John's county.
I realize the Del Webb comnunity is gated and a private community but does the local county sheriff's dept. regularly patrol the neighborhoods inside your gated community and do they respond to home alarm systems going off? Also, I believe your community is surrounded by a state forest. Is hunting allowed during specific times a year and if so can you hear any gunfire noise. Thanks
As far as I know, the local county sheriff's dept. does not regularly patrol the neighborhoods inside our gates, but I have seen them within our Del Webb community from time to time. They do respond to home alarm systems if the systems are hooked up with this capability. Our community is surrounded by a preserve. Hunting is not allowed any time during the year.
We hope you will visit our wonderful community!
Are any houses currently for sale? Are there noise-control rules? If so, what are they? What are the restrictions on having children visitors?
We continue to sell new homes in our Del Webb Ponte Vedra community. As far as spec homes available at this time, you would need to speak to a sales consultant at our Del Webb Ponte Vedra Sales Center. The phone number is 866-224-4231. As far as resales you would need to contact a realtor for that information. We do not handle resales at our sales center.
Children under the age of 19 years can not stay longer than 3 months. Children under the age of 16 can use the outdoor pool on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 2pm to 5pm.
We hope you will visit our wonderful community!
Thank you for taking time to answer my questions. First, why did you choose Ponte Vedra over other village sites? Second, what is the HOA fee - it must be astronomical, right? Third, do you know any residents that snowbird from Alaska?
My husband and I live in Anchorage, Alaska. He is already retired, and I will be in 2-3 years. He's 55 now, and we're trying to figure out ideas for retirement.
Do you regret your decision to retire at this villages?
We chose Ponte Vedra over other village sites because it is easy to access good medical care, its location allows less likihood for hurricanes to hit us head on as in other locations of Florida, and the weather in this location is more suitable for us.
As far as the HOA fees are concerned, that is best to discuss with a sales consultant. 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. The phone number to reach our sales center at Del Webb Ponte Vedra is 866-224-4231.
Unfortunately, I do not know any snowbirds from Alaska. However, we do have some snowbirds here.
No, I do not regret moving to this Del Webb community! It is a beautiful and very freindly community. I feel as if I am on vacation every day!
Please do come visit our wonderful community!
We have a small dog, are you allowed to fence in your back yard?
People have fenced in their backyards, but your plan for fencing does need to be approved by the HOA. I am not certain that every location is allowed to be fenced in.
We hope you come to visit us at Del Webb Ponte Vedra!
Prior to relocating to DWPV year round will be snowbirds from the NYC area. Should there be an emergency or urgent matter concerning our home when we are in NYC, is there any type of caretaker service to notify us?
If there should be an emergency or urgent matter concerning your home when you are in NYC, I would ask a neighbor(s) if they could notify you. I myself do not know of any service, but perhaps a property management service of some sort might be able to help. Also if you have a security system, hopefully they would notify of any emergency. We do hope you will plan to visit our wonderful community!
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?

Yes there are CDD fees and you would have to contact our sales center to get that information at 866-224-4231.

As a resident of Del Webb, we do have many interest groups and chartered clubs that you are welcome to join and participate in. For your other questions, as much as I would like to help you, I think it would be best to contact a sales consultant at 866-224-4231. We hope that you will visit our wonderful community!

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!
