Ocean Racquet Club condo description
10% OFF Regular Rates!!!
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.
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. Two twin beds in the guest bedroom provide plenty of room for guests or kids. 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.
Located conveniently in northeast Florida between Jacksonville and Daytona, the unspoiled white beaches on the coastline of St. Augustine will keep you coming back to Oceans Gate Getaway for many years to come.
Thank you for visiting our website, and we hope you choose Ocean's Gate Getaway for your vacation.

ReviewsWrite a review
My family stayed in your condo in the summer of 2009. We had a great time. The condo was extremely clean and very comfortable. Loved the first floor accomodations. The complex is very well maintained with great pool facilities when the kids wanted a break from the beach. We will definately visit again and share our finding with friends and family.

Loved This Condo
The unit is very well maintained. We really enjoyed the fact that the kitchen was well supplied, and all the utensils and pots and pans were in great shape. Loved walking on the beach, and one morning got up to see the sunrise. What a lovely, friendly, and altogether wonderful resort. We took some of the condo business cards, and will give them out to our friends. Would highly recommend this unit to anyone.

A Great Condo!
A Great Condo!
We had the best time at this condo. It was clean, and everything we needed was there. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Check in and check out was a breeze. This was probably one of the nicest vacations we have taken in many years. The city of St Augustine had so many fun things to do. Our boys loved the tour of the Spanish fort; Ripley’s Believe It Or Not was also great for the kids. Tons of great restaurants by the condo too. (Great tip on Beachcombers – a real beach side eatery). The best part was that the condo was so close to the beach. The sand was very white, and the beach itself was quite wide. I loved the washer/dryer in the unit. You don't need to over-pack. Having a nice kitchen with all the amenities meant we even saved some money on breakfast and lunch. Publix is right down the street too. I would recommend this condo to anyone. I had not been to St. Augustine before, but our family will certainly return and will be staying here.

Great Family Vacation on St. Augustine Beach
Great Family Vacation on St. Augustine Beach
We had a week’s vacation so we decided to make the drive to St. Augustine Beach. The condo was very clean and attractive. The inside is very tastefully decorated, and has plenty of room. Having a washer/dryer in the apartment is a huge convenience. A lot of rentals share the W/D for the building. Nice living room area. Two good sized bedrooms. It is very refreshing to pay for something and have everything turn out exactly the way you expected it. The seat in the master bathroom walk in shower was a real blessing after a long day of playing with the kids on the beach! Our family has booked many vacation rentals over the past 15 years, and this was the only one that had a backyard. The kids played soccer every day after going to the beach. Jump on this. DEFINITELY recommend.

Exceptional Condo!Guest comment entered by manager
This is one of the nicest condos I have every stayed in, and the pictures are exactly what you get! My family and I stayed here a couple of years ago, and I referred a friend of mine last year to stay here. It is very quiet and relaxing at this location, and we love having two pools to enjoy. The condo's decor was exceptional, and we felt right at home. Extremely clean and many amenities. Our boys loved playing Frisbee in the backyard. It was like moving our own house to the beach. This condo receives five stars from us!! We hope to come back sooner next time.

Fantastic Week at Oceans GateGuest comment entered by manager
Fantastic Week at Oceans Gate
We just loved our stay in your condo. We have 3 small children, and it was the first time we took them to the beach. The king size bed in the master bedroom slept better than mine at home, it was so comfortable. The new furniture in the family room and the walk in master bathroom shower was a nice touch too. The kitchen is very well equipped even though I didn't get to use it that much since everyone wanted to head out as soon as we got up. Everything was so clean and well kept. Having Publix close by was an added bonus for picking up any grocery items you may need too! The beach area is beautiful. Always nice to get out and take an early morning walk on the beach. This is a family-friendly place for sure. Loved how it was so easy and fast to get from the condo to the beach. The access to the beach is literally right there! I'm already looking forward to the next time we get to come and stay at your place....

Great Vacation Place
Great Vacation Place
This was our first trip to this area. Great place for our family. The condo has very easy access to the beach. The unit was very clean, spacious, and has everything a family could want. Loved the white sandy beach and ocean breezes. The beds were super comfy, and we loved the board games and puzzles (it rained one day). Really liked being able to just go outside from the family room, and get right to the beach quickly. Nice patio furniture and kitchen was well equipped. We would rent it again!!!

Perfect Vacation Spot!
Perfect Vacation Spot!
Our experience was even more than we anticipated. It was very obvious that this home was well taken care of. The beds were wonderfully restful. My husband and I loved the king size bed, and the walk in shower was a real treat. We went after the commotion of the summer, and loved the heated pool and the jacuzzis. The whole condo is lovely and very comfortable. The quiet clean beach is a real attraction. We will surely plan a return visit!

About: 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 Ocean Racquet Club:
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:
The best feature of our condo is the easy access to the beach. Being oceanfront, YOU CANNOT GET ANY CLOSER TO THE BEACH! Also, we have a private backyard right outside our patio for the children. Enjoy your morning coffee or your favorite beverage on the patio, and watch your kids play in the gardens. It’s also great not having to take your beach toys, chairs and accessories inside the unit. You can leave them safely right outside along with your bikes. The brand new king-size bed in the master suite and free wi-fi offer those great touches of home. Our family wants this to be a vacation to remember for your family, and your favorite spot to return on future trips.
