Great location, very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! We’ve stayed in a different unit in this resort before, but this one was better. This one was in the building closest to the beach which was so nice. We loved being on the 1st floor. We could walk right out of the unit to head to the beach or pool and bringing in our luggage and groceries was really easy! The unit was clean and had everything needed for a great week. Our only complaint would be the bed in the master bedroom. It was uncomfortable and very noisy. That being said, we would still stay there again! The owners were very responsive and even gave us some great new restaurant suggestions to try!

Nice beach; condo needs a few upgrades

  • 4 of 5


Nice beach!!

Condo was clean and pretty well stocked

Having a washing machine and dryer was great

Pool is nice

Close to grocery store


Need a new coffee pot; struggled to turn it on every morning

AC units right outside bedroom window (7) are loud and don’t allow for sitting on the patio

Bottom drawer of stove is hard to slide in and out

Burners on the toaster oven are broken

Electric can opener hanging on the cabinet wouldn’t grab and cut the can lid

Hot water didn’t last for four showers; had to wait between showers

Owner's Response: First we have heard about coffee pot, toaster oven, and can opener issues. These can and will be remedied. The water heaters in all the units are the same size so may I suggest spacing showers out or reducing the length of 4 showers at the same time.

Fine Stay - Recommended!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fine time and enjoyed your condo! Considering we hadn't planned on having our four year old great granddaughter with us, including our daughter and son-in-law, so the first floor was perfect. Easy out, easy in for playing outside works!

Sorry I didn't understand Re: "Key versus code" for condo door entry! Assumed when you get the parking pass from "Resort HQ" they would give us a key. The dishwasher problem worked out well after explanation. However I did think by placing the washer door down to unload it happened to spring out of the door socket so it wouldn't set into a normal running position. Once lifted into place it worked fine.

Otherwise we were very happy with our stay. My wife "the decorating authority" says you might want to consider brightening things up. The place seemed a little "dark" for being at the sea shore. No comment from me on "that".

Exactly what I expected

  • 5 of 5

This was a girls week and we were extremely happy with the location and the condo itself. We had the beach to enjoy the sunrise and the pool in the afternoon heat where there was some shade. I would definitely go again.

Beautiful condo complex/Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Our thoughts on this St. Augustine Ocean & Racquet rental were:

We loved this location ~ the beach was very close by (cannot be seen from inside the rental unit), and the pools were equally close by, and they were super warm (in July) and very clean! We found the beach to be very large, which made it never seem crowded. Also a very clean beach! We saw dolphins jumping out of the water (in the distance) several of the days we were there!

The grounds were pretty, and kept up very nicely. The security gate people were friendly & helpful... we especially enjoyed "Chuck".

This condo was a nice distance to all of the tourist adventures of St. Augustine-- downtown area, Lighthouse, Alligator Farm, etc...and only two short hours to Orlando, making it a fine day trip.

The condo itself was represented well by the listing photos. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen & family room -- all the space that we needed for 4 of us.

I had read all of the reviews for this condo before booking, and kept reading over and over about how clean it was, so I felt very confident that this would be the case. However, our ONLY complaint was that it really wasn't very clean. It looked to be surface cleaned, bedding was fine, but there was a lot of mildew/mold in both showers, a lot of dirt/grime/etc on the flooring tile grout. The kitchen cabinets & drawers felt sticky every time I had to get into them. There was an odd smell, like old furniture, in the condo as well-- and just didn't have a CLEAN feel to it. The master bathroom sink also would not drain, and the overall condo had very poor lighting. No overhead lighting at all, only low wattage lamps in each room.

While we were overall happy with our accommodations and especially the location, I wanted to leave a very HONEST review, not only for others looking to rent, but also for the owners who may not know how their rental is being kept & cleaned between renters.

We enjoyed the St. Augustine are very much, there is SO much to do-- we could have stayed a lot longer than a week, and never gotten bored!! Thank you!!

Loved the space! Perfect for my family of 4.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the proximity to the beach. Both pools were nice, enjoyed the hot tub. The 2 bed/2br condo was great! I really liked that it was on the first floor. Lots of info about St. Augustine in condo. The Wednesday morning market on the pier was great! Overall a great stay.
