Welcome to 'Ocean's Gate Getaway'! Located on beautiful Anastasia Island, this first-floor direct ocean front vacation home is ideal for families and offers miles of beach for your enjoyment. Our condo is in the St. Augustine Ocean & Racquet Club - an exclusive gated beach front resort that was voted “Best Condominium Community in St. Augustine”.
The area’s Spanish flavor is reflected in the surrounding buildings and landscapes. Our professionally decorated unit features two bedrooms and two bathrooms. With the select queen-size sleeper sofa, our home can sleep up to six people comfortably. A washer and dryer are in the unit to keep your clothes fresh and clean. Kids love this place - especially the backyard.
Renovations and remodeling are done YEARLY. For 2013, brand new family room furniture and a new flat screen LED LCD TV provide all the comfy features of home - perfect for a movie night with the family. Also, a spacious walk in shower with a built in seat was added to the master bathroom to help soothe and relax after a day on the beach. For 2014, a new whisper quiet large capacity built in dishwasher was installed. In addition, new LED LCD TV’s were added to both the master and guest bedrooms.
Ceiling fans in every room and an open floor plan make for a wonderful island feel. A fully-equipped kitchen including all major appliances will help you stretch your food budget. The special cookie pan provided is a must use, and makes the perfect batch of cookies. Your vacation home also has a wet bar which is a great feature to help you start cooling off after your day in the sun. Why not indulge yourself with a frozen beverage made in our blender.
Sliding doors open to an outdoor patio from the living room, and lead to a private grassy expanse. Watch the kids play outside while enjoying the ocean breeze sitting on your patio. Beyond your patio and backyard is the boardwalk taking you to the beach. YOU CANNOT GET ANY CLOSER TO THE OCEAN!
The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and a king size bed for our guests to enjoy. With two twin beds in the guest bedroom, a full guest bathroom, and the additional select queen size sleeper sofa bed, your home can accommodate 6 comfortably. Plenty of room for all to have a most peaceful vacation. The guest bedroom has its' own DVD player as well. Watch one of the family movies provided, or how about some puzzles and games with the kids - also included. Beach gear is available for our guests as well. High speed Wi-Fi is included.
Unlike units on upper floors, no need to drag your beach & pool gear up and down stairs or through your home. Just leave them safely right by your patio for your use at any time. Don’t forget to bring your bicycles. Because our home is next to the boardwalk, it’s so easy to go biking right on the beach. Enjoy a spectacular sunrise from your patio, and later watch the beautiful changing light at sunset. In addition, this is a corner unit providing more windows and light to enjoy your views.
Your home is just down the street from both miniature golf, and the Publix shopping center (including Starbucks). Both are close enough to ride your bikes to. Our resort has 24/7 guarded entry security and direct beach access by code only. The complex is one of the only gated communities on the island, and offers not one, but two pools, including a heated one.
Four newly resurfaced tennis courts are a great way to get some exercise. Go fishing in the lake, and then afterwards have a family cookout on the barbecue in the picnic pavilion. Try your hand at shuffleboard too - it's fun! After an active day, enjoy a relaxing soak in one of our five open-air jacuzzis and watch the stars come out. The amenities are really incredible.
If golf is your bag, then have fun at the World Golf Hall Of Fame, featuring two championship 18 hole golf courses. There are also numerous public golf courses nearby.
Feel like a change of pace? Then spend the day at one of the theme parks in Orlando - only 1 and 3/4 hours away. How about some shopping at one of the largest shopping outlets in the southeast, just twenty minutes away.
For a real change of pace, check out St. Augustine, the oldest city in America. Park your car and walk along the cobblestone streets. For history buffs take a tour of the Castillo de San Marcos - a 17th-century Spanish fort with a real working cannon demonstration daily. The kids will love the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum and the Alligator Farm. Everyone will love the fantastic restaurants, homemade fudge, and ice cream.
FREE SUMMER LESSONS: Oceans Gate Getaway guests are offered FREE Surfing lessons and FREE Tennis lessons during summer season - Inquire for more details with the Manager when checking in.

About the owner: Our family loves going to the beach and spending time together. We are excited to be able to offer our spectacular oceanfront condo for your next family vacation! My wife and I wanted to have a unique place to enjoy at the beach and wanted to share our 2nd home with others too.
We love going to play miniature golf right down the street and our nightly ice cream runs are a must for us. Mango Mangos is my daughters’ favorite place to eat, and my wife and I love the Beachcombers restaurant, which you can walk to on the beach.
We hope that you will also enjoy your vacation, and think of our home as your home.
Why the Owner Chose St. Augustine Ocean & Racquet Resort: Our Condo is located in the magnificent complex, St. Augustine Ocean & Racquet, a gated community on Anastasia Island. It was recently voted the 'Best Condominium Community in St. Augustine'.
Located in northeast Florida, the area is easy to get to. Due to the regular sand replenishment program, the beaches are always immaculately clean, and very wide. You can even go for a bike ride on the beach - one of my favorite things to do with the kids. Bring the fishing gear, because there is a lake right in the complex.
There are also two pools, one of which is heated and there are five jacuzzis - great for the Fall and Winter. We enjoy 'hot tubbing' at night - picking a different jacuzzi to relax in after a great meal at night.
Don’t forget that St. Augustine, America’s oldest city, is just a few miles away with all the restaurants, shopping and family-fun events you could ever want.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Being on the first floor and ocean front it is so easy and fast to get back and forth to the beach. Our backyard is a real plus and one we have never seen at any other resorts.
