Ocean Village Club is located on the white, sandy shores of St. Augustine Beach, on the Atlantic Ocean, in St. Augustine, along well-known Highway A1A. The beach is just steps away from your patio door; we have two pools just steps away. New tennis courts are next to the heated pool. We even provided tennis balls.

The R Building is one of the last five buildings built in this complex (completed approximately 1999-2000). This also makes it one of the newer oceanfront buildings along this area of the beach.

Our ('R') building is one of the four 'oceanfront' buildings in Ocean Village Club. You are only 400 steps away from the ocean.

Tennis courts, shuffleboard, horseshoes (equipment provided) and an active clubhouse are available. Clubhouse has three computer stations and printing is available. Clubhouse is equipped for your wireless laptop/other devices both inside and outside on the decks. Professional exercise equipment is in an adjacent room, renovated Oct 2012, extra equipment and wall mount TV. The Clubhouse has several new outdoor seating areas for your pleasure and a large screen TV in the upstairs lounge.

Beautiful New picnic pavilion Great for family gatherings

Both pools provide wireless wifi!!

When you are not at the beach or pool you will find wonderful St. Augustine, the oldest city in the nation, just 5 miles north of your kitchen door. Named in Forbes magazine as one of the 'ten prettiest towns in America'. National Geographic selected the city as one of the ten best places in the WORLD to see 'holiday lights' between November and January.

Come to rest, relax and refresh yourself at the ocean or pools or partake of the huge array of near-by attractions.

At this location you have it all, and the choice is yours, the solitude and beauty of the beach, waves and blue skies or the social opportunities that are everywhere--it is up to you!

World-class golf courses, the World Golf Village and many famous golf tournaments await you. Orlando/Disney attractions are 1.5 hours south as is the Kennedy Space Center. Daytona Beach, famous on its own, and the Daytona 500 race track is only 30 minutes away. Jacksonville, with all of its cultural events is less than an hour north.

St. Augustine City has enough offerings to intrigue you for several weeks; the famous Castillo De San Marcos Fort, St. George Street and all of its shops and open air restaurants, The Alligator Farm, The Fountain of Youth, Ghost Tours (a must!!) Horse Drawn Carriage Rides, San Sebastian Winery and many, many more. Going the other direction from your condo door you can find almost 300 discount premium outlet shops in two convenient malls.

So, whatever your choice, solitude or social, R-17 is the perfect place to call home.

We are very much 'hands on' owners; constantly striving to make our unit the very best in every way.

Private housekeeper that insures you have an EXCEPTIONALLY clean unit.

We supply sand chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, coolers AND BIG beach towels! All the hard to pack things!!

This is a ground floor unit, largest interior size available and has handicapped parking immediately outside the door. No stairs to climb.

This unit also boasts a SOUTHERN EXPOSURE, so you can enjoy the sun all day long while sitting on our comfortable patio furniture.

Take your laptop out to the patio table with your morning cup of coffee; listen to the sounds of the ocean!!

Be sure to read our MANY positive guest comments.

About Cheryl Johnson

We are from Charleston South Carolina and currently live in Valdosta GA. We LOVE to be at the beach every chance we get!!

Cheryl Johnson purchased this condo in 2002

Why Cheryl Johnson chose St. Augustine Area

We spend our family vacations in St. Augustine and one day hope to RETIRE there.

OVC was voted "Best on the Beach" Well maintained complex. Gated community

What makes this condo unique

Ocean Village Club winner of the 2014 Community of the year!!

We enjoy being only 400 steps to the ocean’s edge!!!

We enjoy the best of both worlds; the beach VERY close to our unit and the historic charming St. Augustine only a 8-10 minutes drive away.

Our MOST favorite thing is RELAXING on the beach getting our required daily supply of vitamin D!!

We enjoy making our condo the very best it can be for your use as a second home. We love making new friends and welcoming them back year after year.

In short, we love it all!!

Gem of a condo, great location, and top notch owner from which to rent!!

  • 5 of 5

I used to list our family beach condo on VRBO as an owner and am now a renter through the same web site; so I've sat on both sides of the fence.

I've used VRBO to rent a couple large homes and a few condos. I will only rent from owners, not managment companies nor brokers. No one cares for their propety better than a private owner. I found this to be exceptionally true for this unit.

We were two adults and two teens staying during Michigan's school spring break. Found the condo to be in perfect working order, excellently maintained. There was no item we needed that wasn't provided in the fully, fully stocked unit. I do not want to repeat all the praises from all the other reviewers, but I was so very pleased by the grade of amenities she provided, her responsiveness and how clean the unit is.

We visited the old city of St. Augustine a few times and enjoyed much pool and beach time. The teens love Crucial Coffee place In St. Augustine for bubble tea and their lush outside garden. The adults rate the three best restaurants as The Sunset Grille near the condo, Haszard's at the Beach and Harrys in St Augustine was our all time favorite (dined there at least 3 times). At condo, the girls (teens) enjoyed being able to be on the ground floor and walk out into the courtyard to head to one of the pools. They even used the unheated pool. Loved the comfort of the master bedroom bed. Plenty of extra linens were on hand.

The complex grounds are well maintained, landscaped nicely and everything we encountered from entrance to/from complex, the showers at the pool, showers at the entrance to the beach and the gate to beach to be working well. It's a nice complement to a well maintained unit when the entire complex reflects the same.

Cheryl is very responsive and provides anything extra needed, like um, how to find the complex when I went too far and needed to phone her on our arrival. She was so kind when I needed to phone her AGAIN while having trouble getting to the secure key to unlock the unit. She was then again gracious when I had to contact her to ask if the cleaner had found any of the items which were reported to not have made the return trip back with us.

Not sure where we will go next year for spring break, but will stay in her unit again if in St. Augustine.......if it's not booked. :)

Delighted by the detail

  • 5 of 5

With the plethora of online reviews, for an accommodation to be clean is the expected. So the little extra items is what distinguishes this property from others. For example the well stocked kitchen cabinets with pictures of the contents makes it easy to put away dishes, glasses etc. And the electric wine chiller is an appliance that you would not expect.

Perfect Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay during our vacation in St. Augustine! Cheryl was easy to communicate with and had everything laid out for us when we got there. The condo is just a few miles from downtown and a short stroll to the beach. Everything was well organized, super clean, and nicely decorated. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and the master bathroom has a nice large walk-in shower. There is a also a very nice large screen TV in the living room and a smaller one in the master bedroom. Cheryl has done a fantastic job of providing everything we needed, plus parking was just outside the door. In addition to walking around historic downtown St. Augustine, we enjoyed visiting the lighthouse, the old fort, and the Lightner Museum. Our favorite restaurant is Harry's Seafood, Bar, and Grille. We also enjoyed eating at the Columbia Restaurant and the Conch House. I highly recommend this condo and I hope to be able to stay there again next time. Thank you, Cheryl, for sharing your wonderful place with us!

Outstanding experience!

  • 5 of 5

We could not brag enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at this condo! You will not find a cleaner and better furnished condo anywhere. The personal touch management style of Cheryl Johnson, the owner, is superb. Cheryl provides great written instructions working with you from beginning to end so there are no surprises. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach everyday. I promise you that if we head this way again, we will stay here!
