We just moved from Nocatee over the bridge to PVB. We've seriously discussed moving to SSI. I like a lot of things about Nocatee(there 4 years) but ultimately looking for more trees, slower pace of life, more community, less traffic. PVB has some of these things but honestly I can't stand the architecture here...to me its not appealing at all, I much prefer t he low country style. But... We love Florida so its a tough choice! Also if you are coming for the beach Nocatee is the only subdivision in St johns outside of PVB that's close enough to count

You should buy our house! We’re about to move from SSI to Nocatee :-)

Nocatee will never be crowded with houses is a statement that all locals - including Nocatee residents - would argue. It is very "crowded" as 90+% of the homes are built on lots less than 100 feet wide. They are mostly production homes and they do not offer lots over 1/8-1/4 of an acre except for the homes that are now $1M or more.

Still a great community with lots to offer families, but if anyone says that a community that will eventually have 15,000 homes, shops, retailers, storage facilities and several schools is not "crowded" I am not sure what they are comparing it to.

I do agree very much with what slahgirl wrote above. PVB is definitely more of a "small town" feel with more trees and less commercial feel.
