Homey, comfortable condo, beautiful resort, my favorite Florida town

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific vacation. The condo is very homey and we felt very comfortable staying there. We really liked having a TV in the living room and both bedrooms. The Ocean Gallery is beautiful and fit our needs perfectly. The people that we encountered were very friendly. My wife and daughters just loved the place also. We played tennis, pickle ball, and used the weight room and pool every day. The beach is spectacular and we spent time there every day. We went out to eat every night, including places like Salt Life, the Sunset Grill, and the A1A Brewery in town. We had breakfast at the Oasis and Red Frog, and my wife and daughters went into town to shop and look around a couple of times. Saint Augustine is my favorite town in Florida. In the future, I would love to rent your place again sometime. Once again, thank you for everything. We really enjoyed our stay.

Title: Comfort, convenience, superb staff: our vacation was the best it could be!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, and the staff at the check-in office were fabulous. The unit was clean and very comfortable (especially the beds) and we had everything we could have needed. When there was a problem with the refrigerator, a repairman was at the door within minutes of our notifying the staff (on Sunday!). He identified the problem immediately as a defective part, and arranged for its replacement. Until the repair was completed, they graciously let us use the fridge in a nearby unit. My parents who accompanied us on our trip loved the condo so much and the neighborhood so much they have already decided they will definitely be back again, abandoning the nearby resort where they have been renting for the last 15 years.

Convenient, pretty, relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well laid out for four adults plus room for two more people in the sofa bed. It was very clean and the screened-in lanai was very relaxing. It's a short, scenic, walk to the beach, and an even shorter one to the pool and hot tub.

Location is near some of the beach's nicest eateries and to the Publix. All in all, a wonderful stay. Oh, and there is netflix streaming, plus great DVD collection and small but top-notch library.

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

This condo has all of the amenities you can ask for, swimming, tennis, bike riding and more. Our family had a wonderful time site seeing St. Augustine and checking out the local restaurants. If you want to relax and disconnect from stress this is the place to go. Just bring you beach towel and chill out.

Only the Best!

  • 5 of 5

I have only the best words for your condo! We had a great time at your condo, and the kids loved it a lot. We called it our home for ten days, and for sure we are coming back next year. We had everything we needed at your condo, and the whole experience vacationing at The Ocean Gallery was "out of this world". We made frequent tours to downtown St. Augustine, and we love the city. We are even talking about buying a condo ourselves in a near future.

We loved your condo, the Ocean Gallery, the beach, everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in your condo. It was the cleanest & best organized place we have ever rented. The complex is exceptionally well maintained. The pool & spa was very pleasant to use. We truly enjoyed living on the beach & went walking many times. We truly did enjoy discovering all the things to see & do in St. Augustine. It is a beautiful little historic town. We also drove down to see the Space Center, then watched a launch & visited the museum. We just want you to know how much we enjoyed our stay at your condo. I love your origination & how easy you made the booking procedure. Thank you for making the renting process so easy.
