Overview

St. Augustine Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

'Splendor by the Sea' located in the popular Ocean Gallery Resort, in the history City of St. Augustine, Florida, is 'The Best Address on the Beach.'

Whether you are planning a family vacation, girls week away, buddy's yearly fishing trip or even your honeymoon, 'Splendor by the Sea' is the perfect answer to your accommodation needs.

Our unit offers comfortable sleeping arraignments for 4-6 people with its Master En-Suite Bedroom, private 2-Twin Bed Guest Loft with En Suite Bath and Queen size Sofa Sleeper. There are 2.5 bathrooms total in the unit. All mattress and bedding have been replaced. (2015)

This beautifully furnished condo offers a southern exposure and views of the lushly landscaped grounds with water features where you can peacefully relax in our enclosed porch while enjoying your morning coffee.

The chef's kitchen has granite countertops, a four piece stainless steel appliances ensemble and lots of storage where you can serve up your fresh catch of the day!

The condo is fully furnished including a washer/dryer so that clean beach towels are always on hand and you don't have to worry about packing up damp clothes when leaving the resort. A complete and comfortable home away from home at a luxurious beach-front Resort awaits you at The Ocean Gallery Resort.

'Splendor at the Sea' @ The Ocean Gallery Resort is proud to accommodate guests with five pools, one of which is both indoor and outdoor and heated for use throughout the mild Florida winters. Even when on one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world, the refreshing alternative of a pool is a great option, particularly during the winter months. Four heated Jacuzzis accompanying the pools are favored by snowbirds and honeymooners alike. The pools also offer a great way to cool down quickly after enjoying Ocean Gallery's 4 lighted tennis courts, 2 lighted racquetball courts, 2 shuffleboard courts, or even after you've worked up a sweat playing table tennis. Relax in one of the 2 saunas before a sunset stroll on St Augustine Beach.

Vacationing near historic St Augustine allows you to take advantage of the myriad enjoyments Florida offers to its visitors. Tour historic homes, the iconic Castillo de San Marcos, and the grand gilded-age hotels of Henry Flagler. Dine in elegance and enjoy a carriage ride along the bay and through the narrow, cobbled streets of historic downtown. Take the family for a fun day at Marineland, swimming with dolphins, or rent a little 2-seater electric car and zoom around downtown on a gorgeous, sunny day. Being on the Beach, you'll notice that water sports abound and opportunities for parasailing, jet skiing, deep-sea fishing are readily available. Jacksonville is only an hour north and Orlando is only an hour and a half southwest, making their attractions within easy reach as well. Be close to St Augustine, a tourist Mecca, but still be able to retreat a few miles south to beautiful and quiet Anastasia Island to enjoy your private condo at The Ocean Gallery Resort and the bountiful accompanying amenities.

About Maura Fernandez

My husband and I grew up in the Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts, but we LOVE the ocean. After our first visit to St Augustine over a decade ago, we decided to make St Augustine our home. As our family grew up, they couldn't get enough of the ocean. They were just amazed the first time we took them snorkeling - they said, 'Cool, it's like swimming in giant a fish tank!' There was no question, we had to invest in our own piece of paradise and share it with others.

Why Maura Fernandez chose St. Augustine Beach

We chose Ocean Gallery as the community to purchase our vacation rental property because of its lushly landscaped of 40 acres directly on the ocean. The community is the only truly resort facility on the oceanside of A1A offering vacationers the opportunity to enjoy both activities within the community such as tennis, suffleboard, racketball and then enjoying a with in the Indoor/Outdoor heated pool and finally a sauna and restful shower before enjoying a dinner at one of the fine restaurants within minutes from Ocean Gallery.

What makes this condo unique

Vacationers will enjoy the soothing feeling they get with this beautifully decorated recently renovated property. Dine on the southerly facing patio while taking in the warm winter time sun while overlooking the lushly landscaped grounds and wonderful water features.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay in this great condo. Everything was as pictured and described. The unit was quiet and peaceful and easy to get into and out of. We loved the reserved parking space. The appliances were equal to (or better than) home. The washer and dryer were fast and efficient. The owners were so helpful and easy to work with. We also loved the keypad entry system (no key to keep up with)! It was a short walk to the beautiful, wide, and non-crowded beach. All-in-all, and wonderful place for our much-needed family vacation!

Beautifully decorated condo!

  • 5 of 5

I had the most wonderful week in this lovely condo. The owners were lovely to work with, and made everything so easy! The unit looks exactly like the photos, and was very clean! The Master bedroom bedding was so comfortable, and the community is super quiet! It is a short walk to the beach, and just steps to the pool. I cooked dinner, and the owners had everything I needed in the beautiful kitchen. If you rent this unit, you will not be disappointed!

perfect

  • 5 of 5

my family and I had a great experience. It's a quiet community with extremely friendly people. The staff and other visitors and residents were so nice. The home was clean, comfortable and inviting. It was recently updated and is very modern. The beach is very close. It was no where near crowded and all you can see is an endless stretch of blue water and soft sand at either direction. We had access to pools and hot tubs. Our favorite was the clubhouse where the pool was indoor and outdoor, as well as heated. My 3 year son learned to let go of his fear and swim on his own with floats! It was wonderful to relax and make memories. Another perk is that historic St Augustine is 10 minutes away. We went almost every day. We will be back!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful condo! Light-filled, spacious, immaculate and so tastefully decorated in an understated way. We were able to enjoy a week of warmer weather, and long beach walks and pool/whirlpool/fitness amenities are just a minute away. Jonathan and Maura couldn't have been more responsive--wonderful "customer service" before, during and after our stay! Thank you so much!

A Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at your home in Ocean Gallery. Everything was clean and comfortable and we loved the enclosed porch, spent alot of time sitting and taking it easy. Walking the beach and spending literally hours soaking up the sun at the pools was a real treat for January. It was a hassle free experience from start to finish, thanks for your hospitality.

More than satisfied

  • 5 of 5

I was very nervous about committing myself to a place I was not familiar with but I came away from the whole experience very satisfied. I was impressed with how the owners responded to my insecurities and made me feel very comfortable with my decision to extend my stay to 3 weeks instead of 1 or 2. I highly recommend this unit to anyone planning to enjoy St. Augustine's historical city and the beach. The location was perfect; close to the wonderful heated pool and a short walk to the beach. I spent many hours on the porch listening to the waterfall and reading to my heart's content. Thank you.

Happy Teenagers stayed here

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the property. Everything was better than advertised. I have two teenagers and they both commented about how great a vacation we had and how they hoped we can return next year. It had to be great if it made two 17 year olds happy!
