Founded in 1565, the city has retained its rich Spanish heritage. This unit is on the second floor with elevator access and faces south to enjoy the sun all year round! There is a jacuzzi unit with an enclosed courtyard and hot tub a short walk away. This is a NON SMOKING / NO PETS unit.

After a decade of visiting St Augustine annually and staying at Ocean and Racquet every time we decided to buy a condo here to one day perhaps retire to. We reside in Gainesville, GA which is about 8 hours away.

Richard and Monique Weber purchased this condo in 2004

Since we knew we would need to rent our home, property management was key in our decision as to where we should look. Being familiar with management from the 'Guest's' viewpoint made the choice easy. We didn't even look at other properties because we knew that we wanted to be here. The city codes prevent this area from going 'high rise' and high density like so many other Florida beaches. We have a very efficient and effective Owners Association which manages the finances very well.

Professional management and ideal location. Close to everything beach, and only 5 miles from historic 'Old Town'. And If you just have to have a 'city' nearby, there's both Jacksonville and Daytona.

Loved it!

The condo was clean, well maintained, furnished and decorated tastefully. My family enjoyed breakfast from the dining room within earshot of the occasional roar of the waves. The unit technically has a view of the beach but may not fit the expectations of "beach front view". You can sit on the balcony, see a narrow view of the ocean and easily hear the waves. Getting to the beach is an easy 5 min walk from the unit, you are about 120 yards from the beach. There is nothing between the complex and the beach. Staff were all friendly. Location is only about 15 mins from downtown St Augustine. The beach is beautiful but a little too cold at the time. There were many pots and utensils available. Just get your groceries and you are home. This is tremendous value and most likely the place we will return when we come back to st augustine. I even miss it. Thanks, Richard and Monique, for your attention to detail. ..It is very appreciated by a family away from home who felt so comfortable. In your home.

My husband and I enjoyed a two week stay at this condo. The owners are in the process of updating this property and we appreciated the new flooring, the new living room furniture and the new flat screen TVs found in the living room and the two bedrooms. The kitchen and the two bathrooms were clean and in good working order but were a bit dated. It appears that the entire resort is going through renovations. Workmen were apparent but not obtrusive. The location was perfect for us. We loved how many restaurants were in walking distance. We had great meals at Café Atlantico and the Cocina International which are very close to the condo. We enjoyed the beautiful sunrises and walking lovely St. Augustine Beach. The staff at this resort was] very helpful and friendly. We drove into St. Augustine a number of times to take advantage of the historic sites, shopping and dining. We especially enjoyed the Savory Food and Wine Walking Tour. Our guide was wonderful and we got to explore four different restaurants plus a few other culinary related establishments. For the price, this is a great place to stay. By the way, you can see the ocean from the balcony!

No ocean view- leak in kitchen ceiling forced us to move to another condo- mgt was extremely gracious -gave us 3 choices and we got a wonderful ocean viw after all .Lots of fantastic restaurants on the island as wellas in St. Augustine. Very clean property and pools- lovely landscaping. Photo showed an ocean view-There was none.

Owner's Response: The condo does have and is properly categorized as an ocean view condo. The picture on the webpage is taken from the balcony. Our guest had been in the unit for a week when a pipe in the ceiling sprang a leak. They reported it and it was immediately handled and fixed by the professional staff in the office. However when I was advised that the access opening to the leak would need to be left open for a day or two, to allow moisture to evaporate prior to closing and repainting, the guest insisted on another condo. After reading their review I believe that it was a better view that they sought, not a problem with the ceiling, which is fine. But to claim that this unit is not an ocean view unit is false and a misrepresentation on their part. All one needs do is look at the photograph from the webpage and define the view however you choose.

The map feature on the VRBO website shows an incorrect location for the property. In Google Maps type in 'St Augustine Ocean and Racquet Club' or copy/paste this link:

Hopefully that will show the true location....about a mile south of the pier, 1/4 mile north of big Publix Shopping Center. I have reported the issue, but not sure if or when it will be corrected.

Additional information about rental rates

security $10.00 + Tax
Cleaning $70.00 + Tax
administration $30.00 + Tax
Even though I set my own rental rates, I use our association rental program so all transaction and personal information goes thru their office. I live 8 hours away and the rental program is onsite to manage anything that comes up during your stay. A valid credit card is needed to reserve, but not needed to pay. If used a $21.95 "swipe" fee is added to the total.
Tax Rate 10.0%
Notes Rates and length of stay are negotiable depending on the reservation dates, desired length of stay, and how far in advance the reservation is being made. Most all our guests pay with a personal check received 7 days prior to arrival to avoid the $21.95 "swipe fee". Summer weekly rentals are sat-sat. ALL above rates & min stays are standard starting points and are flexible so please ask.
