Ocean Village Club is located on the white sandy shores of St. Augustine Beach, on the Atlantic Ocean, in St. Augustine FL, along well-known Highway A1A. The beach is just steps away from your patio door; we have two pools just steps away. Tennis courts are next to the heated pool. We even provided tennis balls.

The R Building is one of the last five buildings built in this complex (completed approximately 1999-2000). This also makes it one of the newer oceanfront buildings along this area of the beach.

Our ('R') building is one of the four 'oceanfront' buildings in Ocean Village Club. You are only 400 steps away from the ocean.

Tennis courts, shuffleboard and an active clubhouse are available. Clubhouse has three computer stations and printing is available. Clubhouse is equipped for your wireless laptop/other devices. Exercise equipment is in an adjacent room, renovated Oct 2012, extra equipment and wall mount TV. The Clubhouse has several new outdoor seating areas for your pleasure. Beautiful New picnic pavilion. Great for family gatherings

Both pools provide wireless wifi!!

When you are not at the beach or pool you will find wonderful St. Augustine, the oldest city in the nation, just 5 miles north of your kitchen door. Named in Forbes magazine as one of the 'ten prettiest towns in America'. National Geographic selected the city as one of the ten best places in the WORLD to see 'holiday lights' between November and January.

Come to rest, relax and refresh yourself at the ocean or pools or partake of the huge array of near-by attractions.

At this location you have it all, and the choice is yours, the solitude and beauty of the beach, waves and blue skies or the social opportunities that are everywhere--it is up to you!

World-class golf courses, the World Golf Village and many famous golf tournaments await you. Orlando/Disney attractions are 1.5 hours south as is the Kennedy Space Center. Daytona Beach, famous on its own, and the Daytona 500 race track is only 30 minutes away. Jacksonville, with all of its cultural events is less than an hour north.

St. Augustine City has enough offerings to intrigue you for several weeks; the famous Castillo De San Marcos Fort, St. George Street and all of its shops and open air restaurants, The Alligator Farm, The Fountain of Youth, Ghost Tours, Horse Drawn Carriage Rides, San Sebastian Winery and many, many more. Going the other direction from your condo door you can find almost 300 discount premium outlet shops in two convenient malls.

So, whatever your choice, solitude or social, R-17 is the perfect place to call home.

We are very much 'hands on' owners; constantly striving to make our unit the very best in every way.

Private housekeeper that insures you have an EXCEPTIONALLY clean unit.

We supply beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, large umbrella, coolers AND BIG beach towels! All the hard to pack things!!

This is a ground floor unit, largest interior size available and has handicapped parking immediately outside the door. No stairs to climb.

This unit also boasts a SOUTHERN EXPOSURE, so you can enjoy the sun all day long while sitting on our comfortable patio furniture.

Take your laptop out to the patio table with your morning cup of coffee; listen to the sounds of the ocean!!

Be sure to read our MANY positive guest comments.

About Cheryl Johnson

We are originally from Charleston South Carolina and currently live in Valdosta GA. We LOVE the beach and enjoy it every chance we get!!

Cheryl Johnson purchased this condo in 2002

Why Cheryl Johnson chose Saint Augustine

Ocean Village Club was voted "Best on the Beach". It is a well maintained gated community. Ocean Village Club is very active.

What makes this condo unique

Ocean Village Club winner of the 2014 Community of the year!!

We enjoy being only 400 steps to the ocean’s edge!!!

We enjoy the best of both worlds; the beach VERY close to our unit and the historic charming St. Augustine is only about a 10 minutes drive away.

Our MOST favorite thing is RELAXING on the beach getting our required daily supply of vitamin D!!

We enjoy making our condo the very best it can be for your use as a second home. We love making new friends and welcoming them back year after year.

In short, we love it all!!

Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the condo later than anticipated due to traffic, and Cheryl immediately contacted us to welcome us. How nice it was to step inside and find the lovely welcome gift that was much needed after a long, stressful drive!

The condo itself is immaculate, and exactly what is shown in the photos if not better! Cheryl had everything we needed to get settled on day one... from paper products to often forgotten items, she thought of everything.

The kitchen was one of the best stocked I have seen in a rental unit, literally everything you could think of was there, and then some (hello, wine chiller!) We cooked several nights during our stay and were never left searching for anything we needed.

The living and dining areas are more spacious than the photos show, with plenty of room for everyone. The bedrooms were also great, with comfortable mattresses and upscale bedding that made you as if you were staying with a friend, not in a "rental." There is plenty of closet space, dresser space, and even storage space in the bathrooms.

We didn't get to enjoy the pool and beach, as it was unusually cold and rained during our stay, but we did walk down to the beach one day and passed the pool, which was a very short walk from the condo. The beach is just a few steps beyond the pool and accessed by a nice, gated boardwalk. The historic district is a short drive away, and where we spent most of our time.

I would highly recommend this condo to anyone!

Just Like Home

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl has thought of everything, so all you need is beach wear and sunscreen to enjoy the beach. There are even boogie boards in the closet and sand digging equipment in the storage bench on the porch. Only about a 10-minute drive to the beautiful Spanish-inspired streets of St. Augustine.

This is a "Home Away from home"

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in St Augustine. This was like staying at a friend's home. One of the reasons we chose this property was because of the massive amount of amenities this property offers. Washer and dryer, with detergent a huge plus for us. So many things were so well thought out. Activities for kids, reading for adults. Good programming for Satellite television (in case it rains) Everything you need is probably there. Coolers, beach gear, beach chairs even a screwdriver! Read the reviews 100 some people can't be wrong. The owners are very accommodating. Something EXTREMELY cool was when we arrived Cheryl had a cake and a happy birthday sign for my daughters' birthday! Can't say enough good about this place.

Lives up to the photos, great amenities, and very close to beach and pool

  • 5 of 5

Great experience overall. We originally planned to stay for 4 nights, and when our plans suddenly changed, Cheryl allowed us to easily add two more nights on the front end. The condo complex is conveniently located on A1A, and the section of the beach abutting the property is nice and quiet. Make sure you bring a bathing suit, because that is literally all you will need to bring for the beach, as the condo literally has everything else. We highly recommend this condo for a quiet, relaxing, and hassle-free beach vacation.
