Overview

Palm Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, direct oceanfront. Netflix, Hulu+

Seriously -- this is the one you want. Direct oceanfront upper-floor condominium with spectacular views. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, almost 1,400 square feet of luxurious living space, and a fantastic oceanfront balcony.

Elizabeth and I are individual owners -- not a management company -- and you will love staying at our Cinnamon Beach condominium. Give us a try! We can provide custom quotes for any length stay.

Our direct oceanfront, fifth-floor Cinnamon Beach condominium is a new, beautifully decorated, oceanfront apartment condominium that overlooks the Atlantic, miles of beach, and provides nearby access to the intracoastal waterway in a secluded, resort-type setting.

Located on the fifth floor, this single-level, center unit is accessible by both elevator and stairs and provides almost 1,400 square feet of beautifully furnished living space. As you enter the foyer you are greeted by ten foot ceilings, tiled floors, and a breathtaking view of the ocean through the sliding glass door to the balcony.

The gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops and is well-equipped with everything you need to make meals and beverages for everyone. The kitchen is open to the living and dining rooms that have spectacular ocean views.

The dining room is ready for candlelight dinners, family gatherings, or anything in between. The living room has generous amounts of seating arranged to take advantage of the breathtaking ocean views as well as a fully-equipped entertainment center including a large-screen HDTV.

The three bedrooms and two baths are a split plan for more privacy. Each bedroom is equipped with a TV and NeoTV (Netflix, Hulu+, Pandora Radio, and more). The master suite off the living room has a king-size bed from which you can watch TV or enjoy panoramic ocean views. The master bath has a large Jacuzzi tub, and a separate shower stall. Back down the hallway are two beautifully decorated and comfortable guest bedrooms, with a shared bath and generous closet space. One guest room has a queen-size bed and dresser. The other bedroom has a set of twin beds and dresser. The unit also has a laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer.

The huge thirty-foot oceanfront balcony is equipped with comfortable chairs and loungers, allowing you to enjoy the sound of the surf, the smell of the crisp salt air and the sight of moonlight shimmering on the ocean.

This condominium building is located just a short walk from the two Cinnamon beach clubhouses. The Ocean Clubhouse, designed with adults in mind, offers a secluded environment. The ideal place to watch the sunrise or enjoy an evening sea breeze, it includes a spectacular lap pool, a viewing tower overlooking the ocean, and chairs and umbrellas for use on the beach. The livelier Lake Clubhouse includes the Cinnamon Grille, an excellent fitness facility, a family pool with a spray ground, kiddie pool, a teen center with Foosball and air hockey, and an entertainment room with a billiards table, all with views of the freshwater lake.

And, of course the beach! Two-and-a-half miles of secluded, semi-private beach literally ten steps from your door. Clean, quiet and undeveloped: You can walk the beach for hours, or grab your boogie board and head out into the waves.

With six area golf courses and the close proximity to the World Golf Village in St Augustine and the TPC at Ponte Vedra, this is truly a golfer's paradise. Add the beautiful cinnamon-colored beach and stunning pools and you have the perfect family vacation location.

Our family owns two direct-oceanfront units in Cinnamon Beach: Units 853 and 844. Both are upper-floor, three-bedroom/two bathroom units. This one, unit 853, is the smaller of the two and can sleep 6. You can see the detail on the larger Unit 844 at www.vrbo.com/466279.

About John Bennett and Elizabeth Bluemke

Hi, we're John and Elizabeth: Our family owns both Units 853 and 844 in beautiful Cinnamon Beach at Ocean Hammock. Yes, it's a large family, and over the years we have discovered more and more people that seem to be related to us. It may have something to do with owing a vacation property in Florida.

The condominiums are both beautiful direct oceanfront apartments, and you can't go wrong with either one. We've spent time and sweat to make them into gorgeous living spaces. We love them. You will, too.

John Bennett and Elizabeth Bluemke purchased this condo in 2012

Why John Bennett and Elizabeth Bluemke chose Palm Coast

We fell in love with Cinnamon Beach and the Palm Coast area. We spend much of the winter months maintaining and improving the unit, and are excited to share it with others. Please consider it your home away from home as well!

What makes this condo unique

Fifth-floor direct oceanfront, right over the Atlantic, which means that the sunrises are spectacular. Moonrises, too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your home.



You have a gorgeous property. We truly enjoyed our stay. As soon as you walk in the door you are greeted by a gorgeous view. Your place is spacious and functional and not overly large for just two people. My wife Donna appreciated the Master Bath. The grounds were clean, well maintained, safe, and peaceful. The new living room furniture was very comfortable (it also still had the new smell). The padded lawn furniture on the deck was appreciated also. We spent a fare bit of time on your 30 x 10 balcony.



Before our arrival we were unsure if you had a local phone, as everyone has a cell, or smart phone these days. We were glad you did, and made a couple of local calls using that phone. If not included in your comprehensive visitors guide you may want to include the number in the future. The local emergency numbers and local medical contact numbers were a great addition in the guide.



We watched cable TV and did not utilize NETFLIX or the other internet TV options. WIFI is a must and we used your fast connection on a daily basis. The only other thing we found missing was an alarm clock. Another small issue.



You were well stocked with cleaning supplies, garbage bags, bathroom tissue, and paper towel. You did not leave any basic condiments behind like salt and pepper, sugar, etc. We left some behind for the next guest. Kitchen was well stocked. High end coffee pot looked new. Plenty of glass and table wear. Could use a pan with a grate/grill for baking chicken or fish in the oven. Pretty small issue.



Local attractions and activities, I enjoyed the golf in the area and booked numerous tee times with GolfNow. Donna enrolled in an local arts class and took in a few of the Arts and Crafts shops. We were unlucky with the weather and temperatures were below normal for the period. This limited our beach time.



We have passed on glowing reviews to our friends and family.



Finally, you were a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to future bookings.



Thanks again for sharing your home. We enjoyed our stay.

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

First off pictures don't do this property justice - it is stunning! From the moment you drive through the gate, to the second you walk through the door and are greeted with ocean views you know that you have found a little piece of paradise! This property was incredibly clean and well stocked. There were lots of dishes, bakeware, etc and everything you need for a day at the beach. They have a drawer filled with brochures, restaurant guides, and other tourist information. The balcony is huge and there was nothing better than sitting out there reading a good book and listening to the ocean. We were able to watch the Dolphins playing in the water, and were literally steps from the beach. The owners were amazing to deal with. They answered all my questions (and there were a lot) and they really seem to care about their renters. Check in and check out procedures were well organized and easy to follow. My 2.5 year old loved the swimming pool and splash park that were some of the amenities this condo offered. Truly this place is perfect for anyone looking to relax and enjoy the peace of being near the ocean. Thank you John and Elizabeth for providing such an amazing property to us for our stay! We already can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Hi Denee, Wow: Thank you very much. I'm really glad you had a great time. I just looked through our correspondence, and you're right: You *did* have a lot of questions :) ! It was really a pleasure helping you, though: We love the area -- it's one of those hidden places in Florida that really shines. And it's really enjoyable to hear that you had the same reaction we had when we first visited the area. Like yourselves, Elizabeth and I first visited Cinnamon Beach through a VRBO rental: When we walked into the condominium we had rented, we both looked at each other and said "Wow... We feel like rock stars!". We still have that feeling every time we visit. All the best, and thanks again. John

Pre-Christmas Getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo - very clean, well stocked, beautifully decorated and the view incredible! Loved going to sleep at night with the sound of the ocean waves. The condo was VERY clean and it was "fun" to cook and bake there. The kitchen was well stocked with everyday items. Even though it was December ... it didn't feel like it. The location was beautiful and RELAXED - a great way to get ready for the business of Christmas. We are already looking forward to going back this coming December. We were there with our 6 month old baby and it was easy to relax, enjoying long walks on the beach, swimming, splashing with the baby in the children's pool, beautiful sunrise/sets and night skies. They even provided a playpen / bassinet. John & Elizabeth did a great job in providing instructions on using the condo and things to do around the area.

Owner's Response: Hi Ruth and Steve, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. And I'm very glad to hear you're not planning on buying your own condominium in Cinnamon Beach, like you were threatening to... :). You're welcome back any time! John

Retired Teachers Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the beautiful weather of Florida after enduring a particularly frigid, snowy winter. This condo was clean, lovely and well-furnished. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area and didn't really hear or see all the motorcycles until we left the grounds in spite of the fact that it was Bike Week at Daytona. We loved the beautiful ocean views and cinnamon colored beach. John and Elizabeth had a nice guide for the area, although I would suggest a more detailed map of the Hammock/Cinnamon Beach area. The proximity to St. Augustine following A1A was great. We hated to leave the warm weather behind as we headed back home.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Suzi: I'm glad you had a good time! Thank you as well for the suggestion about including a more detailed map of the Cinnamon Beach / Ocean Hammock area -- I always try to keep our "Welcome Guide" updated, and that's a great idea. Stay warm... John

Terrific Condo

  • 5 of 5

We journeyed from the cold, white North for a getaway with two other couples. John and Elizabeth's condo was just the ticket. They have done a terrific job of preparing a fabulous property and stocking it with everything needed for a delightful vacation. We were well cared for from the start. John and Elizabeth have put together a very complete guide for their renters that covers the condo, attractions in the area, and restaurant recommendations. We came back very refreshed and longing to return.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your review, Jesse. I'm glad you enjoyed the condo, and were able to hit JT's. And, thanks for the recommendation for Catch 27 in St. Augustine: We'll try it out next time we're there. Oh.. and your computer skills really came in handy! All the best, and thanks again for renting our condo.

Three-generation family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! It was spacious and comfortably furnished, clean and welcoming; more than adequate for our family consisting of two couples, one baby and one grandmother. We found everything we needed, from linens, towels and laundry facilities to every kitchen utensil we thought to want. As we did most of our own cooking and some baking, this was important to us.

The view from the balcony was perfect! We could always see the waves crashing on the sandy beach, whether at high tide or low tide. We loved the sound of the ocean; baby always went right to sleep. Being right on the ocean was huge for us; we walked on the beach every day. For swimming, the pool was a two-minute walk. On our first morning we saw the most beautiful sunrise, and on our last evening we had a full moon shimmering on the ocean.

We definitely hope to return, and my 82-year-old mother, who had never been to Florida and was not eager to leave home, is already asking whether we are going again next year.

Fantastic condo, fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is wonderful! It is so clean ( I can be on the particular side ), roomy, cozy, and beautifully decorated. Beautiful kitchen supplied with whatever you may need, you provide your own food, of course. We had a blast here. The walkway to the beach is right beside the condo. I worried about the pool not being close but 2 great pools are a VERY short walk away, would be just fine for little ones. This unit is the closest to the pools, so it is perfect. We had no problem checking in at the guard tower, took less than 2 minutes ( for real), and we were coming in late from Disney World. John and Elizabeth do a great job on informing you with every detail that you truly have no worries. We had no problems with anything, but they have people right there you can call if problems arise ( maintenance stuff,etc. ). Quiet, gated community, felt very safe. I wish I could just hang there for months at a time. This was the perfect "breather" we all needed from running the Parks at Disney World! Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the really nice review, Meredith! Are you and my wife Elizabeth related? Because she can be... "particular"... when it comes to cleaning as well. :) Honestly, we interviewed numerous local people to take care of cleaning and repairs in our absence, and Elizabeth kept saying "Nope... not good enough", "No, not enough attention to detail", "No... price is too low". That last one caused a lot of (muted) protests on my part, but she was right: Our cleaner/fixit-person/superwoman Ann Gordon is worth her weight in gold, and she is directly responsible for how well-maintained our condominium is. Thanks again, Meredith: It was a pleasure dealing with you and Brad.
