Overview

Palm Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, direct oceanfront. Netflix, Hulu+

Seriously -- this is the one you want. Direct oceanfront upper-floor condominium with spectacular views. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, almost 1,400 square feet of luxurious living space, and a fantastic oceanfront balcony.

Elizabeth and I are individual owners -- not a management company -- and you will love staying at our Cinnamon Beach condominium. Give us a try! We can provide custom quotes for any length stay.

Our direct oceanfront, fifth-floor Cinnamon Beach condominium is a new, beautifully decorated, oceanfront apartment condominium that overlooks the Atlantic, miles of beach, and provides nearby access to the intracoastal waterway in a secluded, resort-type setting.

Located on the fifth floor, this single-level, center unit is accessible by both elevator and stairs and provides almost 1,400 square feet of beautifully furnished living space. As you enter the foyer you are greeted by ten foot ceilings, tiled floors, and a breathtaking view of the ocean through the sliding glass door to the balcony.

The gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops and is well-equipped with everything you need to make meals and beverages for everyone. The kitchen is open to the living and dining rooms that have spectacular ocean views.

The dining room is ready for candlelight dinners, family gatherings, or anything in between. The living room has generous amounts of seating arranged to take advantage of the breathtaking ocean views as well as a fully-equipped entertainment center including a large-screen HDTV.

The three bedrooms and two baths are a split plan for more privacy. Each bedroom is equipped with a TV and NeoTV (Netflix, Hulu+, Pandora Radio, and more). The master suite off the living room has a king-size bed from which you can watch TV or enjoy panoramic ocean views. The master bath has a large Jacuzzi tub, and a separate shower stall. Back down the hallway are two beautifully decorated and comfortable guest bedrooms, with a shared bath and generous closet space. One guest room has a queen-size bed and dresser. The other bedroom has a set of twin beds and dresser. The unit also has a laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer.

The huge thirty-foot oceanfront balcony is equipped with comfortable chairs and loungers, allowing you to enjoy the sound of the surf, the smell of the crisp salt air and the sight of moonlight shimmering on the ocean.

This condominium building is located just a short walk from the two Cinnamon beach clubhouses. The Ocean Clubhouse, designed with adults in mind, offers a secluded environment. The ideal place to watch the sunrise or enjoy an evening sea breeze, it includes a spectacular lap poo and a viewing tower overlooking the ocean. The livelier Lake Clubhouse includes the Cinnamon Grille, an excellent fitness facility, a family pool with a spray ground, kiddie pool, a teen center with Foosball and air hockey, and an entertainment room with a billiards table, all with views of the freshwater lake.

And, of course the beach! Two-and-a-half miles of secluded, semi-private beach literally ten steps from your door. Clean, quiet and undeveloped: You can walk the beach for hours, or grab your boogie board and head out into the waves.

With six area golf courses and the close proximity to the World Golf Village in St Augustine and the TPC at Ponte Vedra, this is truly a golfer's paradise. Add the beautiful cinnamon-colored beach and stunning pools and you have the perfect family vacation location.

Our family owns two direct-oceanfront units in Cinnamon Beach: Units 853 and 844. Both are upper-floor, three-bedroom/two bathroom units. This one, unit 853, is the smaller of the two and can sleep 6. You can see the detail on the larger Unit 844 at vrbo #466279.

About John Bennett and Elizabeth Bluemke

Hi, we're John and Elizabeth: Our family owns both Units 853 and 844 in beautiful Cinnamon Beach at Ocean Hammock. Yes, it's a large family, and over the years we have discovered more and more people that seem to be related to us. It may have something to do with owing a vacation property in Florida.

The condominiums are both beautiful direct oceanfront apartments, and you can't go wrong with either one. We've spent time and sweat to make them into gorgeous living spaces. We love them. You will, too.

John Bennett and Elizabeth Bluemke purchased this condo in 2012

Why John Bennett and Elizabeth Bluemke chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

We fell in love with Cinnamon Beach and the Palm Coast area. We spend much of the winter months maintaining and improving the unit, and are excited to share it with others. Please consider it your home away from home as well!

What makes this condo unique

Fifth-floor direct oceanfront, right over the Atlantic, which means that the sunrises are spectacular. Moonrises, too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your home.



You have a gorgeous property. We truly enjoyed our stay. As soon as you walk in the door you are greeted by a gorgeous view. Your place is spacious and functional and not overly large for just two people. My wife Donna appreciated the Master Bath. The grounds were clean, well maintained, safe, and peaceful. The new living room furniture was very comfortable (it also still had the new smell). The padded lawn furniture on the deck was appreciated also. We spent a fare bit of time on your 30 x 10 balcony.



Before our arrival we were unsure if you had a local phone, as everyone has a cell, or smart phone these days. We were glad you did, and made a couple of local calls using that phone. If not included in your comprehensive visitors guide you may want to include the number in the future. The local emergency numbers and local medical contact numbers were a great addition in the guide.



We watched cable TV and did not utilize NETFLIX or the other internet TV options. WIFI is a must and we used your fast connection on a daily basis. The only other thing we found missing was an alarm clock. Another small issue.



You were well stocked with cleaning supplies, garbage bags, bathroom tissue, and paper towel. You did not leave any basic condiments behind like salt and pepper, sugar, etc. We left some behind for the next guest. Kitchen was well stocked. High end coffee pot looked new. Plenty of glass and table wear. Could use a pan with a grate/grill for baking chicken or fish in the oven. Pretty small issue.



Local attractions and activities, I enjoyed the golf in the area and booked numerous tee times with GolfNow. Donna enrolled in an local arts class and took in a few of the Arts and Crafts shops. We were unlucky with the weather and temperatures were below normal for the period. This limited our beach time.



We have passed on glowing reviews to our friends and family.



Finally, you were a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to future bookings.



Thanks again for sharing your home. We enjoyed our stay.

Amazing property and first class experience.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you enter the front door and immediately see the ocean view and the spacious kitchen and living space, you know you are in for a treat. What you see in the property photos is what you get - which is excellent. Amenities within the condo were totally complete. Beach, pool and parking was uncrowded and everyone we met were all very pleasant and friendly. Owner communications were very timely, informative and comprehensive. All questions were either answered before we arrived or contained within the information guide provided (only recommendation would be the addition of info regarding purchasing package liquor - i.e., buy before crossing the bridge, otherwise you need to drive into St Augustine). Site security was excellent, courteous and efficient at the entry gate. We stayed for a week in August (2016) overall excellent weather - just one afternoon of rain , but the ocean view from the large balcony provided pleasant and scenic "entertainment" and made for a nice change of pace. We don't have Publix food stores in Michigan, but if all of them are as friendly and accommodating as the one just down the road from the condo, they are to be complemented. Bottom Line recommendation : If you want first class, upscale accommodations away from traffic and beach congestion - this is the place. We will return if the opportunity presents itself.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the first two weeks of August at this beautiful condo. This was our second time here - we spent two weeks here last summer as well. The view from the balcony is breathtaking - whether you are watching the sunrise, relaxing after a day on the beach or just looking for dolphins. The condo is well maintained and very clean. It has everything you need and more. There was plenty of room for our family of 4 plus visitors. This year my sister and her family rented John and Elizabeth's other condo which is a floor below this one - the kids had a great time bouncing between the condos. The beach is amazing. There are also two pools you can relax at as well. If you want a truly relaxing vacation, this is the place. John is a pleasure to work - he is prompt in his responses and does everything to make sure your stay is wonderful. We will definitely return again in the future!

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to the Palm Coast area. The property is beautiful as the staff was constantly working on manicuring the landscaping. The condo had everything needed to make our family vacation wonderful. I have a feeling we found our new vacation spot.

Owner's Response: Hi Curt, Thanks very much: We love the area and the condominium, too! I appreciate your patience with the shower problem, and glad we were able to find a plumber to fix it on the same day! Fourth of July weekend, no less. All the best, John

Owner's Response: Hi Bridgit, Glad you enjoyed yourselves, and that you were able to get out on the bike trails. We usually make a loop down to Flagler, have lunch, then head back up inland along Colbert... A nice 25 mile loop, with beer in the middle! Thanks again, John

Awesome Condo

Wonderful condo!!! Descriptions are accurate. Well stocked and great for families. Views are breath taking! Everything you need for a beach vacation just bring your clothes and if you cook Publix is very close. We enjoyed our stay.
