YOU CANNOT GET ANY CLOSER TO THE OCEAN!!!! (Check out picture #3 -- the arrow is pointing to our unit) Perfect condo for going back and forth to the beach.
Welcome to 'Ocean's Gate Getaway'! Located on beautiful Anastasia Island, this first-floor direct ocean front vacation home is ideal for families and offers miles of beach for your enjoyment. Your condo is in the St. Augustine Ocean & Racquet Resort - an exclusive gated beach front resort that was voted “Best Condominium Community in St. Augustine”.
Sliding doors open to an outdoor patio from the living room, and lead to a private grassy expanse. Watch the kids play outside while enjoying the ocean breeze sitting on your patio. Beyond your patio and backyard is the private gated boardwalk, just a few feet from the condo, taking you to the wide and expansive beach. YOU CANNOT GET ANY CLOSER TO THE OCEAN!
The area’s Spanish flavor is reflected in the surrounding buildings and landscapes. Your professionally decorated unit features two bedrooms and two bathrooms and is kept extremely clean, smoke free and pet free. A washer and dryer are in the unit to keep your clothes fresh and clean. Kids love this place - especially the backyard.
Renovations and remodeling are done YEARLY. A new HVAC system was installed in 2018. For 2017, a new large high capacity water heater was installed for those long soothing showers after a day on the beach. In 2016, the entire condo was completely painted. For 2015, new carpeting was installed in both the master and guest bedrooms. In 2014, a new whisper quiet large capacity built in dishwasher was installed. In addition, new LCD TV’s were added to both the master and guest bedrooms.
Ceiling fans in every room and an open floor plan make for a wonderful island feel. A fully-equipped kitchen including all major appliances will help you stretch your food budget. The special cookie pan provided is a must use, and makes the perfect batch of cookies. Your vacation home also has a wet bar which is a great feature to help you start cooling off after your day in the sun. Why not indulge yourself with a frozen beverage made in our blender. There's a washer and dryer right in the unit so you can pack less stuff, and keep your pool/spa towels dry and fluffy.
The master bedroom has a king size bed, as well as an en-suite bathroom including a spacious walk in shower and built in seat. With two twin beds in the guest bedroom, a full guest bathroom, and the additional select queen-size sleeper sofa bed, your home can accommodate 6 comfortably. Plenty of room for all to have a most peaceful vacation. The guest bedroom has its' own DVD player as well. Watch one of the family movies provided, or how about some puzzles and games with the kids - also included. High speed secure Wi-Fi is included.
Unlike units on upper floors, no need to drag your beach & pool gear up and down stairs or through your home. Just leave them safely right by your patio for your use at any time. Don’t forget to bring your bicycles. Because your home is next to the boardwalk, it’s so easy to go biking right on the beach. Enjoy a spectacular sunrise from your patio, and later watch the beautiful changing light at sunset. In addition, this is a corner unit providing more windows and light to enjoy your views.
Your home is just down the street from both miniature golf, and the Publix shopping center (including Starbucks). Both are close enough to ride your bikes to. Our resort has 24/7 guarded entry security and direct beach access by code only. The complex is one of the only gated communities on the island, and offers not one, but two pools, including a heated one.
Four newly resurfaced tennis courts are a great way to get some exercise. Go fishing in the lake, and then afterwards have a family cookout on the barbecue in the picnic pavilion. Try your hand at shuffleboard too - it's fun! After an active day, enjoy a relaxing soak in one of five open-air jacuzzis and watch the stars come out. The amenities are really incredible.
For a real change of pace, check out St. Augustine, the oldest city in America. Park your car and walk along the cobblestone streets. For history buffs take a tour of the Castillo de San Marcos - a 17th-century Spanish fort with a real working cannon demonstration daily. The kids will love the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum and the Alligator Farm. Everyone will love the fantastic restaurants, homemade fudge, and ice cream.
FREE SUMMER LESSONS: Oceans Gate Getaway guests are offered FREE Surfing lessons and FREE Tennis lessons during summer season - Inquire for more details with the manager when checking in.
