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 1,700 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 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 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 and can sleep 9. 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.

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!

Wonderful beach condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many condos at Cinnamon Beach, and this was one of the nicest. The condo is nicely decorated with a tasteful beach theme. The kitchen is well-stocked with appliances, dishes, and utensils. The view is wonderful, and we ate dinner on the balcony every night. Our children loved the bunk beds, so that was a nice touch. We had some very minor maintenance issues, and I was very impressed with how quickly these were resolved. This was our first time renting from owners (vs. a rental company) and I feel it was much easier working directly with the owners of this unit. John contacted us quickly to resolve a minor issue and to ensure that things were going smoothly. Overall, this is a lovely condo with wonderful owners. We hope to stay here again in the future.

This is the perfect vacation, was said more than once!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent this past week here...myself, my boyfriend and my 2 girls. At least once a day I heard and/or said "this is the perfect vacation". The condo is beautiful and super clean! It had everything you need to stay for a week, and then some. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook. Including two coffee makers (a Keurig and regular coffee maker). There are beach towels, chairs and sand toys. There was even a tube my daughter brought to the beach one day. The weather was perfect, every day, and the beach is spectacular! Every day started with a trip to the beach...BEFORE coffee! That's how awesome it is! We have vacationed in Marco Island the last two years and I would come back here, every year, going forward. Working with John, the owner, is a breeze! He is quick to respond to questions and before I unpacked, my deposit was refunded! If you have any doubts, don't. You will be pleasantly surprised and I, guarantee, you won't want to leave. Thank you, John & Elizabeth for allowing us to stay in your home! We will be back!!

Beautiful, Upscale Condo, Breathtaking Views, and Gorgeous Beach!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week here with our four children. My sister and her family rented their other condo at the same time. We all had a wonderful time! The condo was more than we expected! It was beautiful and had everything you would expect plus more. The owners really go above and beyond to make sure the little extras are there for you. The kitchen had everything in it, including multiple coffee pots, blender, crock-pot, plenty of dishes, utensils, cookware, etc... There was a drying rack for doing laundry, loved this with wanting to hang swimsuits to dry after washing them. There were plenty of towels, including beach towels. There were beach items, including 2 beach chairs, a bucket of sand toys, and a small cooler for taking to the beach. This was the cleanest rental we have ever walked into! We had not one complaint about it. The owners were wonderful to work with! From the booking process, to our arrival and stay, to our deposit refund - they were on top of it every step of the way. We just got home last night and we woke up to an email letting us know the deposit refund has been processed. We never had to wait for an answer to a question. The beach is beautiful! It is perfect for kids. We have spent time at other beaches on the East Coast and this one is our favorite for the kids playing in the water. We could sit down by the water and watch them without feeling like we had to be right next to them in the water. The amenities were also very nice - multiple pools and fitness center. We would definitely return and look forward to doing so in the future! Thank you John and Elizabeth for sharing your beautiful condo and beach with us!

Excellent property and location

  • 5 of 5

We visited Palm Coast for a family reunion and had the most amazing time at this resort. The unit was exactly as described and very clean. Absolutely amazing oceanfront unit. We could not ask for more.

The view from the balcony was breathtaking. The only disappointment was not staying longer.

John and his wife were very accommodating and made everything very easy.

We can't wait to rent from them again.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at John and Elizabeth's wonderful condo. As always, everything was perfect. They have all the latest technological gizmos and high end appliances that make our stay easy and relaxing.

The condo is located in the last building, so it's the closest to the pool. I highly recommend this condo!

Beautiful location, clean condo and facilities

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Cinnamon Beach! This was our first time going to Palm Coast, and we loved it. The location is very secluded feeling, the Cinnamon Beach neighborhood is nicely kept with beautiful landscaping and maintenance. The pool facilities were very clean and fun for our little ones. During our stay the beaches and pools weren't crowded at all. The condo was very clean, decorated tastefully and had everything we needed from a cheese grater to extra pillows and blankets. It has also been well-kept and felt brand new. It was really a great visit. We would definitely recommend it to anyone and hope to return ourselves. The owners were also very easy to work with and personable. I really can't think of a negative thing to say!
