About the property

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 1,700 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, fourth-floor Cinnamon Beach condominium is a new, beautifully decorated, oceanfront apartment that overlooks the Atlantic, miles of beach, and provides nearby access to the intracoastal waterway in a secluded, resort-type setting.

Located on the fourth floor, this single-level unit is accessible by both elevator and stairs and provides almost 1,700 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 flat screen TV. 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 bunk bed combination that sleeps three (double bed on the bottom, single on the top) and a dresser. The unit also has a laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer.

The huge oceanfront balcony is equipped with a dining table and chairs, 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 pool 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 844, is the larger of the two. You can see the details on the smaller Unit 853 at vrbo #451295.

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 2013

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 our vacation home, and are excited to share it with others. Please consider it your home away from home as well!

What makes this condo unique

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

Enjoy a blissful ocean experience!!

  • 5 of 5

This well equipped property on the 4th floor allowed us to fully enjoy nature, even while inside! Awaken to gorgeous sunrises seen from your bedroom or patio...hear the waves while falling asleep. Enjoy the beach to your heart's content - it's right at the end of the walk! The condo décor was welcoming, not overdone with some very nice personal touches. A large table allowed us to entertain friends one evening after dinner - the condo had good accessibility for a friend in an electric wheel chair which was great. One nice addition was the professionally written and designed booklet which gives pertinent and clear information about the condo, the heat, remotes, things to do, places to go, restaurants, etc. It came in very helpful during our 2 week stay. Although we did not have children with us, we will definitely include grandchildren at some point in the near future and they will enjoy the condo and property amenities as well as the beach. We have stayed on Cinnamon Beach once before and had a nice visit - however, we plan to return to John and Elizabeth's condo next time and certainly recommend it to others. They were fantastic to deal with and everything went smoothly and as promised. Thank you John & Elizabeth! - Joe & Lindy

Beautifully decorated, quiet and safe vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on this trip enjoying the beautiful ocean views and high-end décor in this condo. There was nothing else we needed to enjoy our stay. Everything was provided for us down to the beach chairs and sand toys, and everything we needed in the beautiful kitchen. Our three children loved the bunk bed and we loved the big bathrooms, washer/dryer and of course the sound of the ocean. The only thing that was a surprise to us were all the large rocks along the shore preventing the kids from using their boards to catch some small waves. It allowed plenty of time to build sandcastles and play ball on the sand but kept the kids out of the water because the large rocks were hidden by the tide at times. An absolutely beautiful beach, nonetheless. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home!

Owner's Response: Hi Laura, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you had a good time, and I'm sorry to hear that the rocks are exposed again. The beach changes significantly depending on the amount of sand brought in by various storms, and it's usually easy to wander a hundred yards or so down the beach to a clear area. On our first visit, we encountered absolutely no rocks, and on subsequent ones, we saw them about 20% of the time, but only in very specific locations. All the best, and thank you again. John

Owner's Response: Hi Douglas, I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves! Your timing was perfect, because the community had just finished re-opening the boardwalks to the beach after Hurricane Matthew. You're welcome back any time. All the best, John

Lovely condo, wish we could live there year round!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as described and pictured. Very spacious and open, wonderful view of the ocean, light, bright and comfortable. The condo was clean upon arrival, everything functioned and all the furniture and appliances were in good condition. The beds were very comfortable and my three year old daughter loved the bunk bed.

We have stayed at Cinnamon Beach before and the property is excellent, great beach for kids and very nice pool areas. This condo is closest to pool, very good location. You feel very safe at this condo, it is very quiet, and loved that there were no smokers on the balconies. The owners were pleasant, very responsive, honest, and kind. I would rent this condo again in a heartbeat. Thanks John and Elizabeth!
