St. Augustine Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-5)

Just listed. Newly outfitted and stocked for your vacation! Our condo community was just rated 2014's BEST Condo community in Florida. We’re private owners (not a listing agency) and will personally treat you with courtesy, respect, and attentiveness.

Our condo overlooks the tennis courts and heated pool. You’re just a short stroll to the sugar sand beach, outside pool, shuffle board, and the SUN. Great rates, well-maintained, and tastefully decorated. Your adventures while staying at Ocean Village Club are limitless... you can SUN, SWIM, SURF, PLAY TENNIS, FISH, GOLF, SHOP, or visit Disney, Kennedy Space Center, and other nearby sites, or just RELAX.

We’ve just finished the unit, so you’ve got lots of new items – including new Queen mattress, rain showerheads, pillows, full-size washer/dryer, 2 flat screen TV's, DVD/Blueray, fans, lights, cookware, towels, beach supplies, beach toys and more.

Our tasteful two-bedroom, two-bath condominium is located on the top-floor of the G building, a third-floor (walk-up) unit ensuring an abundance of light and privacy. The unit is completely and comfortably furnished for your enjoyment, including bed/bath linens, a fully-accessorized kitchen, leather couches, a new washer/dryer, and beach supplies (towels, chairs, coolers, and toys). The club house offers a library, computer (DSL) and exercise room. DSL and FREE WIRELESS are ALSO available in our condo. You supply your own laptop.

The master bedroom has a new memory foam queen-size bed, 39” TV w/ cable DVD/Blueray player, and its own master bathroom. The second bedroom has twin beds and plenty of closet space. There is an additional bathroom just off the second bedroom.

The dining area includes a table which seats six. This sprawls into the living room - which is completely furnished including cable 42” TV, DVD/Blueray player, as well as sliders leading to the balcony. The balcony is furnished with chairs - perfect for relaxing and taking in a tennis match or surfing the web while sipping a cool beverage.

COMPLEX – Ocean Village Club just won the 2014 Florida Condominium Community of the Year award – recognized by the Florida Communities of Excellence awards program. The grounds are immaculately maintained, and rival (if not surpass) many resorts.

LOCATION AND SITES - When not relaxing on the beach, you can visit the fabulous historic city of Saint Augustine, the oldest city in the nation, just 15 minutes away. While in Saint Augustine, you can enjoy historic sites, fabulous shops, and fine restaurants. You can tour the famous Castillo De San Marcos Fort (17th-century fortress), the Alligator Farm, Fountain of Youth, Potters Wax Museum, horse-drawn carriage rides, San Sebastian Winery, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and so much more. If shopping is your fancy, you are located only 15 min from the famous St. Augustine outlets. In fact, you are centrally located to many of “the basics”- 1 mile from TWO grocery stores, 1 mile to Hungry Howie’s Pizza, 0.5 mile from St. Augustine's best breakfast (Oasis restaurant), and 5 mile from the shopping district at the intersection of US 1-312 (HomeDepot, Marshall’s, Target, Staples, Chick Filet, Sonny’s BBQ, Burger King, McDonald’s, Outback Steaks, and much, much more).

SPORTS - Besides the FREE on-site amenities (two pools, tennis courts, and shuffleboard and all the beach you-care-to-enjoy) you can partake in surfing, fishing, and boating. Of course, great golf courses are very close - including Sawgrass/Ponte Vedra (TPC). We’re also close to the World Golf Village - where you can tour the World Golf Hall of Fame and see an I-Max movie.

About Jean and Jeff Kerchner

We spent 4 years living in Central Florida. During this time, we visited many sites and shores. By far, our favorite, and most frequented, was historic and mystical St. Augustine. We love people watching in the historic district, the live music, and shelling on the beaches.

Jean and Jeff Kerchner purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jean and Jeff Kerchner chose St. Augustine

Over 20 years ago, we were married in St. Augustine. We fell in love with the beautiful sandy beaches and the historic streets. Loving it so much, we decided to purchase this quiet, 3rd floor unit, and some day retire here. The condo association is very active, maintains the grounds superbly, and they just won the #1 condo association in Florida award.

What makes this condo unique

We just purchased the unit, so it is newly outfitted, stocked, and painted. It overlooks the tennis court and heated pool. While drinking a ice-cold glass of sweat tea, I enjoy watching my teenagers play tennis and swim in the heated pool. Not overlooking the obvious, I love the short stroll to the beach. Ocean village is a private gated community.

Enjoyable Week With Friends

  • 4 of 5
The condo was well-maintained and clean. The binder with restaurants and sightseeing was very helpful. Not far from condo was The Saltwater Cowboy restaurant. Nice atmosphere and good food. The condo was close enough to the beach and to old St. Augustine. Worth seeing in town was the fort Castillo de San Marcos and the St. Augustine Lighthouse. Had an enjoyable week with our friends. It would have been nice to have 4 chairs on the balcony instead of 2 chairs.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had an enjoyable week with your friends at our unit. We strive for high standards in cleanliness and also keeping the property well maintained. We provide only two patio chairs on the balcony and a small end table to ensure the maximum view of the beautiful sunset over the palm trees and heated pool from our living room. As you could see and other guests have commented, our condo's decor is beautiful but uncluttered. We try to emphasize a serene uncluttered atmosphere inside as well as outside.

Bliss Personified

  • 5 of 5
We will never again need to search for a place to stay in St. Augustine - this was PERFECT!! The condo was even more beautiful than the pictures, was absolutely immaculate, and lacked for nothing. Communication from the owner before we even left home was so complete, there were no questions to ask - - and at the condo, information about everything was not only readily available, but displayed decoratively and made for interesting reading. Even though the walk to the beach was short enough, the condo's location to the development complex gate on the side road made it so very easy to drive right onto the beach, which definitely made it easier carrying chairs, umbrella, cooler, towels, etc. - - all of which were provided for our use - - even toys to play in the sand :) Favorite of the experience? Sitting out on the lovely terrace overlooking the pool and listening to the ocean waves. Location is fabulous too - grocery stores nearby, excellent local restaurants, and a short drive into the downtown historic district. Only one thing would have made this vacation even better - if it never ended ..... but we'll definitely go back, stay only here, and maybe even take the grandkids with us. Save your time and trouble - this is the place to stay!!

review of beach bliss really was bliss

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I stayed at Beach Bliss for 4 nights and since this was the first time we had tried condo living instead of staying in a hotel, we did not know what to expect! But we were pleasantly surprised by the facility - absolutely immaculate, very nice decor (not overdone as some Florida rentals seem to be), easy access to the beach, and quick and simple access to the historic areas of St. Augustine. Love the A1A! The owners seem to have thought of everything in the way of supplies- much beyond anything we expected. They also provided a binder of local information that led us to some great restaurants that were also easy to get to. We ate at the Saltwater Cowboys and Sunset Grill - both excellent. The owners were very helpful and responsive to questions, and even called once we were home to see how things were. The light bulb over the dining table was out and was taken care of right after it was reported. There were extra bulbs in the unit - we just didn't look carefully enough!
Certainly would go back or recommend to a friend.

Great location, great value, great time

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with the coziness and condition of the condo -- we had everything we needed waiting for us and we immediately felt at home.

The proximity of the pools and the beach were great, and the local attractions are just a close drive away. The kitchen and washer and dryer were a big plus. The balcony and the large window doors allowed us to enjoy the beautiful weather -- including taking in an awesome Florida thunderstorm from the comfort of the couches.

And perhaps most importantly, the owners were extremely accessible, helpful and friendly when it came to booking and asking questions. It made the experience so easy and stress-free.

Thanks!

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5
The place was even nicer than the pictures! The owners have thought of every detail to make our vacation care-free. We ended up staying an extra night and had a hard time pulling away. The condo was spotless. quality bedding and towels. Kitchen was well equipped. Convenient and close to beach. Well appointed furnishings and no clutter. Great shower heads.

Plenty of great local restaurants - try the Purple Olive right across the street. Long lazy walks in St. Augustine at night with many places having live music. We would like to return and would surely consider Jean and Jeffory's condo. They have it down to a science. The only downside is that they were firm on a 10am check out-which is understandable!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you liked the condo enough that you didn't want to leave and stayed an extra day. The reason check out is at 10A.M. is so the housecleaner has ample time to make it "spotless" for the next guest. We look forward to your next visit! See you next year!

Beautiful and clean with lots of extras!

  • 5 of 5
The nicest condo we've ever stayed in for this price. Owner was very easy to work with and provided lots of extras - coolers, soaps, even a spare toothbrush! Extra nice laundry facilities and kitchen well stocked. Strong Wi-Fi, two large TV's. Very close to grocery and restaurants. We enjoyed in-shore fishing with captain Dumas, swimming with the dolphins at Marineland, and taking sunrise photos on the beach while we were there. 10 minute walk to the beach, Great waves and pretty shells. Would love to stay in this condo again.
