Exactly what I expected
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!
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.
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.
Great in many ways. I will be back!
Very safe gated community. Pleasant comfortable decor. Pool is close by. Beach is even closer. Ground floor entrance provides quick and easy access. I went out to beach for sunrise everyday. Beach is directly east facing for spectacular view. Always room for you on the beach. Never crowded. Loved the master bath shower. This condo is a great choice for folks with limited accessibility. Minutes drive away from historic district. Publix and Starbucks close by. Walmart is just a short drive. This was my third stay in this condo. I hope to be back each year. Staff on the property were helpful. Quiet and peaceful getaway location. Owners are friendly and helpful, too.
This condo was only steps from the beach. Once out along the ocean, you had all of Anastasia Island to roam. Away from the crowds of downtown, but close enough to sightseeing and fine dining.
The owners could not have been more gracious. The condo, while older, had newer appliances and everything we needed for cooking and cleaning. The only issue we had involved one of the pools. It was supposed to be heated, but didn't feel like it.
This property is a great value!
Spectacular property right on the beach
We had a wonderful experience in this two bedroom and two bath condo. It was clean and nicely decorated and you can't see the beach from it but literally steps away, maybe 30 or 40 steps to a beautiful private beach. Parking right out the back door which made bringing luggage in and out easy. It has full security 24/7 including pass code at gate to return from the beach. The owners were delightful to deal with and great communicators. We would definately use this property again if staying in the area, about 15 min from the historical stuff and we were glad to not be staying in the busy touristy area.
