Overview

Saint Augustine Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-5)

Newly outfitted and stocked for your vacation! Ocean Village Club condo community was just rated 2014's BEST Condo community in Florida. We’re private owners (not a listing agency) and will personally treat you with courtesy, respect, and attentiveness.

FRESHLY PAINTED IN AUGUST!

Our 3rd floor condo overlooks the tennis courts and heated pool. NEWLY ADDED 4 CHAIRS and BALCONY BREAKFAST TABLE AND 2 NEW TWIN SEALY POSTURPEDIC MATTRESSES. You’re just a short stroll to the sugar sand beach, outside pool, shuffle board, and the SUN. Great rates, well-maintained, and tastefully decorated. Your adventures while staying at Ocean Village Club are limitless... you can SUN, SWIM, SURF, PLAY TENNIS, FISH, GOLF, SHOP, or visit Disney, Kennedy Space Center, and other nearby sites, or just RELAX.

We’ve just finished the unit, so you’ve got lots of new items – including new Queen mattress, rain showerheads, pillows, full-size washer/dryer, 2 flat screen TV's, DVD/Blueray, fans, lights, cookware, towels, beach supplies, beach toys and more.

Our tasteful two-bedroom, two-bath condominium is located on the top-floor of the G building, a third-floor (walk-up) unit ensuring an abundance of light and privacy. The unit is completely and comfortably furnished for your enjoyment, including bed/bath linens, a fully-accessorized kitchen, leather couches, a new washer/dryer, and beach supplies (towels, chairs, coolers, and toys). The club house offers a library, computer (DSL) and exercise room. DSL and FREE WIRELESS are ALSO available in our condo. You supply your own laptop.

The master bedroom has a new memory foam queen-size bed, 39” TV w/ cable DVD/Blueray player, and its own master bathroom. The second bedroom has twin beds and plenty of closet space. There is an additional bathroom just off the second bedroom.

The dining area includes a table which seats six. This sprawls into the living room - which is completely furnished including cable 42” TV, DVD/Blueray player, as well as sliders leading to the balcony. The balcony is furnished with chairs - perfect for relaxing and taking in a tennis match or surfing the web while sipping a cool beverage.

COMPLEX – Ocean Village Club just won the 2014 Florida Condominium Community of the Year award – recognized by the Florida Communities of Excellence awards program. The grounds are immaculately maintained, and rival (if not surpass) many resorts.

LOCATION AND SITES - When not relaxing on the beach, you can visit the fabulous historic city of Saint Augustine, the oldest city in the nation, just 15 minutes away. While in Saint Augustine, you can enjoy historic sites, fabulous shops, and fine restaurants. You can tour the famous Castillo De San Marcos Fort (17th-century fortress), the Alligator Farm, Fountain of Youth, Potters Wax Museum, horse-drawn carriage rides, San Sebastian Winery, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and so much more. If shopping is your fancy, you are located only 15 min from the famous St. Augustine outlets. In fact, you are centrally located to many of “the basics”- 1 mile from TWO grocery stores, 1 mile to Hungry Howie’s Pizza, 0.5 mile from St. Augustine's best breakfast (Oasis restaurant), and 5 mile from the shopping district at the intersection of US 1-312 (HomeDepot, Marshall’s, Target, Staples, Chick Filet, Sonny’s BBQ, Burger King, McDonald’s, Outback Steaks, and much, much more).

SPORTS - Besides the FREE on-site amenities (two pools, tennis courts, and shuffleboard and all the beach you-care-to-enjoy) you can partake in surfing, fishing, and boating. Of course, great golf courses are very close - including Sawgrass/Ponte Vedra (TPC). We’re also close to the World Golf Village - where you can tour the World Golf Hall of Fame and see an I-Max movie.

About Jean and Jeff Kerchner

We spent 4 years living in Central Florida. During this time, we visited many sites and shores. By far, our favorite, and most frequented, was historic and mystical St. Augustine. We love people watching in the historic district, the live music, and shelling on the beaches.

Jean and Jeff Kerchner purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jean and Jeff Kerchner chose St. Augustine Area

Over 20 years ago, we were married in St. Augustine. We fell in love with the beautiful sandy beaches and the historic streets. Loving it so much, we decided to purchase this quiet, 3rd floor unit, and some day retire here. The condo association is very active, maintains the grounds superbly, and they just won the #1 condo association in Florida award.

What makes this condo unique

We just purchased the unit, so it is newly outfitted, stocked, and painted. It overlooks the tennis court and heated pool. While drinking a ice-cold glass of sweat tea, I enjoy watching my teenagers play tennis and swim in the heated pool. Not overlooking the obvious, I love the short stroll to the beach. Ocean village is a private gated community.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely great week at this beautiful condo. It was a short stroll to the beach and was centrally located near plenty of restaurants, shops, grocery, etc. The condo was spotlessly cleaned before we arrived. The beach towels were all provided. It had everything you would think of needing while being away from home for a week. The beach access is great, and the beach is quiet and relaxing. The heated pool was great during the overcast/cooler nights! We were out there right until 10pm!!!

Jean was very helpful and was always a phone call away if needed. Already thinking about booking it again, St. Augustine is GREAT!

Very Nice, Clean, Great Location, Well Stocked!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a keeper! Great location to pools and ocean. When the owners say all you need to bring is your beach attitude, it is true! Everything you need is already here. It was clean and up to date; everything worked -- absolutely nothing negative to say about our stay here. We stayed a week (July 23-30, 2016). If you have not been to St. Augustine Beach and/or St. Augustine you are missing out! Plenty of great food, history, shopping, site-seeing and the beach is the best. Thank you Jean and Jeff for allowing us to stay. We will be back again next year (maybe even this Fall)!

Everything was amazing...

  • 5 of 5

Overall, this condo has been the best we have stayed at so far. It is in a good location by the beach only a quick stroll to get there. The beach itself was another luxury being a nice sugar sand beach with little people even at peak times. It is a very relaxing place in itself. The condo provided everything you could ask for from towels to chairs to small home and beach luxuries most condos don't provide. One thing that we really liked is the assortment of guides given to us to help us explore everything in this city including restaurant menus and activities guides. It is a very comfortable place that really does make you feel at home especially because it is so clean and ready for any family. There is a fully stocked kitchen and spacious living area as well as tidy bathrooms with everything working well. The view of the condo overlooks the publicly available tennis courts and swimming pool. The location of the condo isn't in a crowded area and has short drive access (around 2-15 minutes) to various things such as great restaurants right by the condo itself and a short drive to historical downtown St. Augustine which is simply an adventure by itself. We would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in a city with plenty to do. Thank you to Jean and Jeff for allowing us to stay in their beautiful condo and we will most likely be returning for more another day.

Very clean and accommodating condo community

  • 5 of 5

Cleanliness was of utmost importance when looking for a place to stay for a week close to the beach and this condo satisfied! We traveled with another couple and the condo provided plenty of space and privacy. Highly recommend bringing a wagon to tote things to the ocean. Quick walk to the beach with private Boardwalk. The beach chairs and umbrella provided were of great quality and made hours on the beach much more enjoyable! I highly recommend this condo community and would love to stay again in the future. One thing to note for families: the 2 pools were always full of kids, so prepare for crowds in the pool. But the beach has plenty of real estate for crowds. We never felt that the beaches were too crowded, even with the public access to vehicles.

Owner's Response: I am happy you loved our condo and all the great quality items that we provide to our guests. We considered providing a beach cart, however, the beach is within a short walking distance in case items are needed. It is a guest preference whether you like to carry tote bags, cart, or even drive onto the beach. For those who like do the whole cabana tent or beach contractor-thing, you can literally drive on the beach with 4x4 vehicles at the public access road at the edge of complex. We look forward to your return visit!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great and just as described. It was clean and stocked with all the necessities. The complex was quiet and conveniently located. The beach was great and clean and a short walk from the unit through the parking lot and down the private boardwalk. Jean was great to deal with. She was very friendly and helpful and always addressed emails or texts in a very timely fashion. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations or vacation.
