George Oakley purchased this condo in 2000
Even though we live in Florida, in Cedar Key, we love going over to the condo at Ocean Village. It's like 'getting away' from our daily work lives, which is how it'll feel to you.
I choose this condo in 2000 because it is close to everything. The ocean, pool, Jacuzzi, work out room, 1st tee, tennis courts, putting green, bocce ball, shuffle board, Tiki bar, restaurant, and people. Besides buying food, you can park your car and not use it again for days. That makes it relaxing.
This is a lovely comfortable condo where we had a very enjoyable vacation. The condo is very clean and well-maintained with all the conveniences described in the advertisement on the "Home Away" web site. We will hove no hesitation in recommending this rental to our friends.. communication with the owner was easy and pleasant.
The condo is ideally situated being close to the pool, club house, Inn, putting green, tennis courts, and it is right on the 1st. tee of the golf course.
There are interesting locations to visit nearby, plenty of good restaurants in the locality, good shopping in the area, and the baseball park is just down the highway !!
We hope to return next year.
For vacation this year, we literally pulled out a map of Florida and chose the Fort Pierce/Hutchinson Island area. Our search of rental properties led us to Mr. Oakley's unit at Ocean Village and I couldn't have been more pleased. We had everything we needed to make this a comfortable and enjoyable week. The unit was extremely clean. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking several meals, the bed was very comfortable and I loved having a separate vanity area outside of the bathroom since there was myself, my husband and two younger sons. The beach is literally a 3 to 4 minute walk and on several occasions, we almost had the beach to ourselves. We felt like we were on our own private island! The community is very quiet and secure. There is a security guard at the front entrance 24 hours a day. Thank you for letting us spend our vacation in your unit. We hope to be back again!
As always our stay was wonderful. It is so nice having everything you need not worrying you forgot something. Very well maintained, comfy bed and lots of closet space. Having the beach and pool a few steps is the best perk. If you are a golfer you step out your back door and you are ready to tee off. I'm not a golfer but I do play tennis which is only a few steps away also. This cono has the best location of all of Ocean Village. Thanks George for letting us rent it. We will be back next year.
This was the best condo for the money. We were an easy walk to the beach. Lots to carry, so that was nice. The bed was extremely comfortable. The beach was so nice and NOT over crowded. It was a super plus to see the Sea Turtle lay her eggs. We drove the 2 hours to Disney and back in the same day. It wasn't bad. We will definitely be back!
As always, our stay was great. We have everything we need when we arrive at your condo. It is great not having to worry about what we may need. You have it all and it is a great area, pool, beach, tennis, etc., all within walking. Thanks for letting us rent your condo
This condo will continue to be our "small part of paradise" neat, clean, near the pool, walk to the ocean, etc, this is our second time and we will continue to come to ocean village, many thanks George
