Visit the nations oldest city.: St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city, also holds the distinction of being one of the nation's most charming. Known as the 'Ancient City,' Saint Augustine is located between North East and Central East Florida and is convenient to Jacksonville, Orlando, and Daytona airports.

North Florida boasts a year-round mild climate perfect for strolling Saint Augustine's delightful historic district, with its cobblestone streets, quaint cafes, bars, unique shops and bed-and-breakfast inns. Experience the beauty of an early morning that slowly comes alive with locals and tourists setting out on foot to explore significant landmarks such as: the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument or the Lightner Museum. Both located in the downtown historic area.

From single vantage points in town, you can experience both the joy of the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean horizon and the peacefulness of the sun setting beyond the salt marsh along the intracoastal waterway.

About our beach: Crescent Beach is located in the southern area of St. Johns County. It is situated on Anastasia Island, a wildlife refuge. This beach offers a serene, natural setting and is a great place for beachcombers. It is one of the most scenic, unspoiled beaches in Florida. Crescent beach offers boating, diving, fishing, and many other attractions. It is convenient to excellent RV and camping facilities

Sightseeing and Tours: St. Augustine's attractions bring to life the history, adventure, and romance of the Old City. With more than four centuries of colorful local history to draw from, the more than 60 unique-themed attractions in St. Augustine bring to life the history and romance of the Old City. Complementing the historically-themed attractions are contemporary adventures never imagined by the ancient explorers. The combination of historic sites and modern-day storytelling make the attractions of St. Augustine one of the most popular features of the oldest, continuously occupied European settlement in the continental United States.

We LOVE this place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit here... I am 50 and my mother will be 87 shortly. The accommodations are perfect for us. I can work on-line from my room with a beautiful view and she can sit in her room or in the living room and watch the ocean. There isnt a bad view to be had. We also love having a view of the intracoastal... the sunsets are gorgeous. I love to run the beach and swim in the pool... you just couldnt ask for more. It is beachy and yet close enough for day trips into St Aug. We keep finding new things we want to do "next time". We really love the area and esp. this condo.

Beautiful location - comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! We enjoyed the location and the condo very much. St. Augustine is a great location, not too busy, beautiful beach, friendly people. We liked that traffic wasn't too bad (like Orlando or Ft Myers Beach area); it was very easy and quick to get around. We have a 4 year old and he LOVED the Alligator Farm. We also went to Marineland, which was enjoyable but small and a quick trip since we didn't pay for any extra activities. Our only complaint was that the pool wasn't heated (not even a little) and was VERY cold to swim in for early April. We braved the cold water a few times during the week but it was exceptionally cold even with the warm, sunny weather. This of course is not the problem of the condo owner but for those seeking lots of pool time for spring break, it didn't happen. As for the condo, the rooms and the views were amazing. Accommodations were excellent - couldn't ask for anything more to be provided. There were even Legos for our little guy so he was thrilled to say the least. Great place and we highly recommend it!

Average and overpriced

  • 2 of 5

We rented this unit for the month of March 2016 directly from the owner. Granted the view is beautiful but the unit is only average in need of updating, and certainly not worth the money. The furniture is dated, the shower in the MBR has a paltry spray head, the toilets need coaxing to flush properly, and the patio furniture is flimsy plastic. In my opinion, it is not worth the price.

A relaxing, enjoyable true beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our third summer vacation at Ocean House. We absolutely love this condo! The views of the beach and intracoastal are fabulous. The pictures depict the condo and amenities exactly as you will find them. There are plenty of beach toys and chairs available to use. The washer/dryer in the unit is a big plus. The unit is very clean, well stocked with linens and you will find everything you need in the kitchen (except the food of course). We left items this year in the bathroom, David was immediate in his response saying he would ship them to us - AND pay the postage... how awesome is that? We will be back again next summer. This is a wonderful place to make memories. Our thanks to the owners - David and Libby (and Amy... for handling all the paperwork!).

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was lovely and the view of the ocean was wonderful. Sliding glass doors for both bedrooms and the living room, plus from the dining area one can look over the Intercoastal Waterway . It was exceptionally clean and comfortable with about anything you needed from kitchen to the beach! We would definitely book again with the owner. Super nice!

"Great Vacation Rental"

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 2 weeks in January. We booked it on rather short notice and were very pleased at how smooth the process was. The condo was very clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was provided and the view can't be beat. Only wish the weather would have been a bit warmer.

Notes:
In this home there is a stacked washer and dryer. The condo association does not allow for outside venting of the dryer. If the dryer is used for large or multiple loads the heat and humid air could affect your comfort on those hot summer days. While it is a great convenience if used for bathing suites etc. we just use the coin operated laundry room located on the same floor only two doors down. Less than 100 feet, door to door, on the same floor.
