Overview

Butler Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

'Splendor by the Sea' located in the popular Ocean Gallery Resort, in the history City of St. Augustine, Florida, is 'The Best Address on the Beach.'

Whether you are planning a family vacation, girls week away, buddy's yearly fishing trip or even your honeymoon, 'Splendor by the Sea' is the perfect answer to your accommodation needs.

Our unit offers comfortable sleeping arraignments for 4-6 people with its Master En-Suite Bedroom, private 2-Twin Bed Guest Loft with En Suite Bath and Queen size Sofa Sleeper. There are 2.5 bathrooms total in the unit. All mattress and bedding have been replaced. (2015)

This beautifully furnished condo offers a southern exposure and views of the lushly landscaped grounds with water features where you can peacefully relax in our enclosed porch while enjoying your morning coffee.

The chef's kitchen has granite countertops, a four piece stainless steel appliances ensemble and lots of storage where you can serve up your fresh catch of the day!

The condo is fully furnished including a washer/dryer so that clean beach towels are always on hand and you don't have to worry about packing up damp clothes when leaving the resort. A complete and comfortable home away from home at a luxurious beach-front Resort awaits you at The Ocean Gallery Resort.

'Splendor at the Sea' @ The Ocean Gallery Resort is proud to accommodate guests with five pools, one of which is both indoor and outdoor and heated for use throughout the mild Florida winters. Even when on one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world, the refreshing alternative of a pool is a great option, particularly during the winter months. Four heated Jacuzzis accompanying the pools are favored by snowbirds and honeymooners alike. The pools also offer a great way to cool down quickly after enjoying Ocean Gallery's 4 lighted tennis courts, 2 lighted racquetball courts, 2 shuffleboard courts, or even after you've worked up a sweat playing table tennis. Relax in one of the 2 saunas before a sunset stroll on St Augustine Beach.

Vacationing near historic St Augustine allows you to take advantage of the myriad enjoyments Florida offers to its visitors. Tour historic homes, the iconic Castillo de San Marcos, and the grand gilded-age hotels of Henry Flagler. Dine in elegance and enjoy a carriage ride along the bay and through the narrow, cobbled streets of historic downtown. Take the family for a fun day at Marineland, swimming with dolphins, or rent a little 2-seater electric car and zoom around downtown on a gorgeous, sunny day. Being on the Beach, you'll notice that water sports abound and opportunities for parasailing, jet skiing, deep-sea fishing are readily available. Jacksonville is only an hour north and Orlando is only an hour and a half southwest, making their attractions within easy reach as well. Be close to St Augustine, a tourist Mecca, but still be able to retreat a few miles south to beautiful and quiet Anastasia Island to enjoy your private condo at The Ocean Gallery Resort and the bountiful accompanying amenities.

About Maura Fernandez

My husband and I grew up in the Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts, but we LOVE the ocean. After our first visit to St Augustine over a decade ago, we decided to make St Augustine our home. As our family grew up, they couldn't get enough of the ocean. They were just amazed the first time we took them snorkeling - they said, 'Cool, it's like swimming in giant a fish tank!' There was no question, we had to invest in our own piece of paradise and share it with others.

Why Maura Fernandez chose Florida

We chose Ocean Gallery as the community to purchase our vacation rental property because of its lushly landscaped of 40 acres directly on the ocean. The community is the only truly resort facility on the oceanside of A1A offering vacationers the opportunity to enjoy both activities within the community such as tennis, suffleboard, racketball and then enjoying a with in the Indoor/Outdoor heated pool and finally a sauna and restful shower before enjoying a dinner at one of the fine restaurants within minutes from Ocean Gallery.

What makes this condo unique

Vacationers will enjoy the soothing feeling they get with this beautifully decorated recently renovated property. Dine on the southerly facing patio while taking in the warm winter time sun while overlooking the lushly landscaped grounds and wonderful water features.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay in this great condo. Everything was as pictured and described. The unit was quiet and peaceful and easy to get into and out of. We loved the reserved parking space. The appliances were equal to (or better than) home. The washer and dryer were fast and efficient. The owners were so helpful and easy to work with. We also loved the keypad entry system (no key to keep up with)! It was a short walk to the beautiful, wide, and non-crowded beach. All-in-all, and wonderful place for our much-needed family vacation!

Fabolous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the condo! The place was beautiful (bedrooms were huge) and accommodated our family wonderfully (2 kids, age 10 and 5). The condo made you feel at home and we enjoyed having all that space compared to staying in a one room hotel. It was nice to be able to cook some meals instead of eating out every night. Kitchen was stocked just right. The kids enjoyed the clubhouse pool almost everyday and it was even hot enough to try out the Las Palmas pool one day. We all enjoyed the short walk to the beach which was very easy to access. My daughter loved to play in the sunroom. Maura and Jonathon were wonderful. We had a little issue with the lock on the door and they were very quick to resolve it. Never once did we feel uneasy. I would definitely recommend this place and we plan on renting again next year!

Ocean Gallery Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Splendor in 2014 also. The condo is well appointed and maintained. The owner is always quick to answer any questions or concerns. The only thing that needs improved are the upstairs bedding. They are very noisy. Hard to sleep. We would stay at this condo anytime

Best Condo, Best Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at this condo for 2 weeks. The condo is nicely furnished, tastefully decorated and well stocked for our stay. The resort is also well maintained and beautifully landscaped. It was too chilly to use the nearby pool but it looked very clean and ample lounge chairs. The best thing about this condo is the closeness to the beach...less than a 5-minute walk. The beach is fantastic for walks or bike riding. My husband actually rented a beach bike for $45/week and used it every day. The location of the resort is great. Not too close or not too far away from downtown St Augustine. There are also several nice restaurants nearby. I would definitely recommend this condo for your visit to St Augustine.

Immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this condo. We truly enjoyed our stay. Being a bit skeptical, I have never rented a condo - always have stayed at a hotel. After looking at the pictures, I decided I would take a chance on this unit. It was EXACTLY as the pictures portray. The condo is updated, very clean, homey, beds were comfortable, all the cooking utensils were there; simply beautiful. Being from Ohio (where it was 59 when we left in June) I was a little warm. I called the number given and immediately the temperature was adjusted to our liking. Also, I appreciated the text/call to ensure we arrived. The pools were great, the beach was a short walk, even the gate attendant was super. It's positioned only a short drive to downtown and great restaurants. If my travels bring me back to St. Augustine, I will visit again, it was a great trip!

We really enjoyed out stay. Everything that we needed was available to us. The condo was beautiful and clean. The one and only complaint is the air conditioning varied from 69 to 75 never maintained a steady cool sitting. A 70 would have been perfect considering we saw some 90 degree days.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We strive to provide the best customer service to each and every guest. I can understand your frustration with the air conditioning as it is very hot this time of year. We had our annual system serviced in January and did respond as soon as we were notified of a potential problem by having our A/c service individual out that same day. Our air conditioning since has been fixed and there are no problems. Again, thank you for taking the time to write a reive and I hope you choose us again in the event your travels take you back to St Augustine, Fl.

Beautifully decorated condo!

  • 5 of 5

I had the most wonderful week in this lovely condo. The owners were lovely to work with, and made everything so easy! The unit looks exactly like the photos, and was very clean! The Master bedroom bedding was so comfortable, and the community is super quiet! It is a short walk to the beach, and just steps to the pool. I cooked dinner, and the owners had everything I needed in the beautiful kitchen. If you rent this unit, you will not be disappointed!
