Perfect Oceanfront Resort Location - Beach Walkover is outside the back door!
Relax on the sunny patio where you can sit and listen to the ocean, feel the sea breeze, smell the salt in the air and walk only 15 steps to the private beach walkway that leads to the most beautiful wide, white sand beach you’ve ever seen. The Ocean and Racquet Resort is centrally located on beautiful Anastasia Island, 5 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine. It is the perfect home base for a family vacation, girls weekend or relaxing getaway.
This ground floor condo #3123 is only one unit back from oceanfront in an oceanfront building with no stairs to climb to the condo or across the beach walkway. Convenient parking is right at your back door. It sleeps 6 with a KING bed in the master, two twin beds in the second bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa. Ceiling fans were recently installed for comfortable island living.
You will have all the tech comforts available including FREE upgraded WiFi for streaming with 3 flat screen HDTVs. A 40" smart 4K TV in the living room and 2 DVD players and upgraded HD cable in the living room and both bedrooms as well as FREE long distance calling to U.S. and Canada.
The beautiful granite kitchen comes fully equipped with both Keurig and drip coffee makers, ice maker, built-in microwave and dishwasher. There is an in-unit washer/dryer, linens and towels for a stress-free stay. 5 beach chairs, umbrella and sand toys complete your vacation fun.
This tropical resort is beautifully landscaped and is family friendly. You will have access to all resort amenities including 5 jetted hot tubs, 2 swimming pools (one heated), 4 lit tennis courts, shuffle board and fishing ponds.
Our friendly and helpful Community Service Officers man our front gate 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. They are available to assist with after hours emergencies or just a recommendation on where to eat for dinner. For those of our guests that will be arriving after office hours, an officer is always available to get you checked in no matter what time of day or night. The concrete of the building makes it hard for a cell signal to reach inside the condo and cell service on the property is spotty, but dedicated internet access is upgraded and wifi calling works well.
Our property is located directly on the beach, so you're only steps away. The boardwalk over to the beach is gated from outside visitors. A code will gain you access back into the property once you come back from the beach. The wide, sandy beaches do allow driving, but don't worry, there is plenty of room for everyone and there are designated driving lanes.
Tennis & Racquetball
Our property features 4 newly resurfaced hard top tennis courts. We also have 2 outdoor racquetball courts. Both tennis and racquetball courts are open from 9 am to 11 pm and are well lighted for your nighttime enjoyment. Don't worry about bringing your equipment from home. Our office offers courtsey equipment for you to borrow while you are on vacation.
Pool & Jacuzzis
One of the best features of the property are the Pools and Jacuzzi's. Our pools and jacuzzi's are immacutely maintained by our onsite office staff daily. Our property features one large pool with plenty of seating available as well as a slightly smaller pool (which is heated in the winter). In addition to the pools, the property has 5 courtyard Jacuzzi's located in our Jacuzzi Villa buildings. Pools and Jacuzzi's are open from 9 am to 11 pm.
Grill & Picnic Area
Our property provides a grill and picnic area for your family to enjoy a meal. Two charcoal grills and 2 picnic tables overlook our tennis courts and fishing ponds. Grill up some burgers and hot dogs and enjoy a lovely evening with your family. Let the kids fish or play tennis while you get dinner ready.
The clubhouse is available to rent for private parties, weddings, business conferences, church groups, family reunions and more. The convenient location is close to the beach and the clubhouse looks out over our large pond with a lovely fountain. A medium size deck is perfect for outside seating or fishing. The clubhouse (when rented) includes a variety of tables, chairs, flat screen TV, 2 restrooms and a full size kitchen with and icemaker.
The on-site office is available 7 days a week to assist you. If you need directions, restaurant recommendations or there is maintenance issue, we are just a phone call or short walk away. Check-in and check-out is available right through our office as well.
Publix and Winn-Dixie grocery stores are less than 1/2 mile away. The Lighthouse Museum and amphitheater are only a couple miles north. Hop on the beach bus to get downtown instead of driving.

We love traveling, dreaming and dreaming about traveling. St. Augustine Beach has always drawn us back. We are locals and love being so close to historic downtown. Our family has spent summers at the Florida beach and we are always getting back there when ever we can. The restaurants are so good; Mexican, Thai, Sushi and Sunset Grill, Mango Mangos, Salt Life - we love it all! Then there is Rita's Italian Ice, yum. Ask us for food and fun recommendations.

Why Cyndi chose St Augustine Beach
This is the perfect place to vacation, 5 miles from Historic Downtown and on the beach. The condo is peaceful, the town is elegant and the beach is casual. Every night we check out a new restaurant then go back to our favorites. Good food, great fun, attractions, quirky boutiques and a relaxing, laid back beach feel!
What makes this Condo unique
We fell in love with this beachy condo because the patio basically opens up to the beach walkover. The beach is wide and the sand is soft. The beach is very clean and well taken care of by the city of St. Augustine Beach - truly a jem. The life guard is close and Pier Park is a 1.5 mile walk. It is so easy to swim in the ocean, play at the pool then find great food for dinner. It is all just low stress and fun.

Loved my stay in your condo
There was not one thing your condo was lacking. Loved the location to the beach. Will definitely come back.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Bright Beachy Condo. You are right about the beach being so close! Life is relaxed just on the other side of the beach ramp. We would love to have you back anytime, please call the onsite office if you would like to stay again. - Cyndi
We so enjoyed our stay this week at the Bright Beachy Condo on St Augustine Beach!
Thank you for sharing this comfortable roomy condo. It was steps away from the beautiful beach. When we return to St Augustine we plan to stay here!
I’m so happy you found the condo comfortable and the beach beautiful. It takes my breath away going over the beach ramp. You are welcome back anytime. Get in touch with the on-site office for your next getaway, 3123. - Cyndi
Great for 4 people to enjoy, inside and out! The short walk to the beach was great, seeing the sun rise and the sun set. Would do it again.
We are thrilled you found it perfect for 4 adults. We also love the walks at sunrise. The ocean is calm and shells are waiting to be picked up. Please come and stay again next time you crave some beach time. Cyndi
Great beach place
This 2 bdrm, 2 bath was only a 1 minute walk to a beautiful beach.
We arrived in the wee hours of the morning and check in was very smooth, right at the gate.
King bed was comfy and kitchen was well equipped.
We will definitely return.
We are glad your check-in went so easily after hours. Our security officers really love their jobs and have a happy vibe about them.
We are happy that your enjoyed the condo. We really try to think of every detail to make our guests feel at home. Please visit us again next time you are in the St. Augustine area.- Cyndi
Great apartment shame about the weather!
The beach apartment is a great little apartment, very well equipped and comfortable. You can sit back and relax and feel at home, just a few little things which is normal in a rental, sofa bed is not the most comfortable but I just bunked in beside my 5 year old so it was no problem. Unfortunately we hit the coldest weather I think they have seen in St. Augustine in many years and it was too cold to get out so much and enjoy nice beach walks etc, we did get one day albeit with hats & gloves on. I would definitely come back but in Summer. Dan Murphy’s Irish Bar is also highly recommended and close by, great atmosphere, service & food.
Thank you for your lovely review. We have never tried Dan Murphy's and it is now on our list. The property is very comfortable and we are glad you did get out to see the ocean even for a little bit. Thank you for staying at the beachy condo and please do come back when you can. - Cyndi
A wonderful stay. We had a peaceful stay with proximity to the beach that we knew was close, but had to experience it to believe it. The only thing I would suggest is a few minor upgrades to the bathrooms, but overall, excellent. We will definitely stay again.
Thank you for staying at the Bright and Beachy Condo. We are so happy you had a nice time. You are right that it is a peaceful property in a great beach location. With new plumbing, trim, light fixtures and mirrors, we continue to make it better all the time. - Cyndi
