About the property

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 St Augustine

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!

Lovely oceanside condo in St. Augustine

  • 5 of 5

Our condo unit in Ocean Gallery was beautifully furnished and decorated throughout with seaside motifs. The two two-bedroom (one a loft) unit was airy, had 2 baths and a nice kitchen, and had a lovely separate sun room off the living room. All linens, kitchenware, dishes, etc. provided matched the decor.

The condo was a short walk from the beautiful beach (via dune walk-overs), and there was a choice of pools, including a year-round, heated, indoor-outdoor pool. The landscaping was very attractive , and I'm sure other recreation activities (tennis, bike-riding ,etc.) were available.

Overall, very attrative, very convenience -- I look forward to returning and would highly recommend it to others.

Perfect location to enjoy St. Augustine.

  • 5 of 5

This condominium is perfectly maintained and beautifully furnished. It is well located within the complex. Just steps away from a fabulous heated pool, or if you prefer, a lovely unheated pool is just outside the door. A quick easy walk to a pristine beach wonderful for walking, bike riding, swimming and relaxing. The condo is spotless and a great place to relax after a day of outdoor activities. It is well located for visits to historic St. Augustine, the Alligator Farm, great restaurants and other activities. I'd recommend without any reservations and definitely rent again.

Wonderful Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

Loved loved this unit! Perfect location within Ocean Gallery as well as St Augustine beach. Just a 15 minute beach walk to the pier and a quick 10 minute drive to historic downtown.

Lois and Maura are so accommodating and super quick to answer any questions that I had.

The unit is decorated so cute and beachy. It was super clean and had all the amenities that we needed for the week!

Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends and family!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in St. Augustine and the condo was the perfect place to stay. The condo is clean, cozy, comfortable and well-equipped and the complex is nicely maintained and has a lot of amenities. The location is great with a short walk to the beach and a short drive into historic St. Augustine. We would definitely stay here again!

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!
