Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

The Ocean Gallery Resort is “the best address on the beach”, unmatched in size, beauty and amenities by any other complex in this area. Located on beautiful and quiet Anastasia Island, it resides on forty-two acres of beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens. Buildings and grounds are meticulously maintained. Half the units are unrented private homes, many with decorative gardens planted and maintained by the proud residents. Two beautiful boardwalks with attached gazebos offer direct access from the resort across the dunes - lined with sea oats and wildflowers - to miles of white sand ocean beach. With 24-hour guarded entry, your security and privacy are assured.

Your vacation home at The Ocean Gallery is fully furnished. Extensive renovations include new furniture, appliances and lighting, serene “coastal” decor. Adjoining the large living room with cathedral ceiling, the screened patio overlooks a lagoon, with fountain and waterfall. The master bedroom suite, with king-size bed, includes a vanity and dressing area, plus adjoining full bathroom. The second bedroom in the loft has a king bed and a private bathroom. Ample storage space, upstairs and down. Both bedrooms have desks, with lighting and desktop electrical outlets, for your computers, cellphone chargers, etc. Three wide-screen HD cable tvs (two with DVD players, one internet-connected) and wireless internet are included. Unusual extras: 45 classic dvd movies; stereo with ipod dock; beach chairs and umbrellas; games; and a library of novels and a variety of other books.

The clubhouse is just steps away, where you will find a 100-foot heated indoor-outdoor pool, available year-round; also a large hot tub, 2 saunas, gym, table tennis, restrooms and showers. Surrounding the pool are chaises for sun bathing, plus tables and chairs. A second pool is available in warm weather, with hot tub, seating and restrooms. Across from the clubhouse are four lighted tennis courts, two lighted racquetball courts, plus shuffleboard, and basketball. Child friendly: children love the pools and the beach, and there is also an onsite playground. Just want to relax? From your rocker on the patio, enjoy the view of the lagoon and listen to the fountain. Stroll around the grounds in the evening, or out to the beach. Watch for whales from the gazebos or the beach. Other wildlife is visible too, in the dunes as you cross the boardwalk to the beach, plus many species of birds, including a beautiful white egret that visits the lagoon. There are excellent restaurants nearby, plus take-out and delivery services.

Golfers have discounted access to many nearby courses. Parasailing, jet skiing, deep sea fishing, boating, ecotours and bicycle rentals are also readily available nearby. Colorful farmers-and-crafts markets are held weekly, with free entertainment from local musicians. Concerts and other cultural events occur regularly at venues in St. Augustine and other nearby cities. To discover St. Augustine’s Maritime Past, visit the Lighthouse and Museum; climb 219 steps to the top of the tower for a breathtaking panoramic view of the area. Directly across from the Lighthouse is St. Augustine Alligator Farm - Zoological Park. See hundreds of rare and exotic birds, mammals, reptiles and 23 species of crocodilians. Across the “Bridge of Lions” is “oldest city” St. Augustine. Tour historic homes, the iconic Castillo de San Marcos, and the grand, gilded-age hotels and churches of Henry Flagler. Next to the cathedral is St. George street, lined with restaurants and other popular attractions. Nearby are art galleries, boutiques, night clubs, and much more. Highway 1, at the edge of town, is lined with shopping centers that include every major retailer, plus many other stores and restaurants. A short drive north and west are two giant outlet malls, with bargains on dozens of national brands. Within easy driving distance are several state parks, and Florida destinations such as Amelia Island Plantation, World Golf Village, Daytona Beach, plus Disney World, Epcot Center, and the many other Orlando attractions.

Many wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice week at your condo in St. Augustine. Your condominium is very lovely. We especially enjoyed the lanai and the beautiful tropical view from there, the long walks and bike rides on the beaches directly from the Ocean Gallery property, the many pools on site and touring the town of St. Augustine and discovering its deep history which we found especially interesting. We have many wonderful memories to take home with us, and we hope to rent from you again some day.

Homey, comfortable condo, beautiful resort, my favorite Florida town

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific vacation. The condo is very homey and we felt very comfortable staying there. We really liked having a TV in the living room and both bedrooms. The Ocean Gallery is beautiful and fit our needs perfectly. The people that we encountered were very friendly. My wife and daughters just loved the place also. We played tennis, pickle ball, and used the weight room and pool every day. The beach is spectacular and we spent time there every day. We went out to eat every night, including places like Salt Life, the Sunset Grill, and the A1A Brewery in town. We had breakfast at the Oasis and Red Frog, and my wife and daughters went into town to shop and look around a couple of times. Saint Augustine is my favorite town in Florida. In the future, I would love to rent your place again sometime. Once again, thank you for everything. We really enjoyed our stay.

Title: Comfort, convenience, superb staff: our vacation was the best it could be!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, and the staff at the check-in office were fabulous. The unit was clean and very comfortable (especially the beds) and we had everything we could have needed. When there was a problem with the refrigerator, a repairman was at the door within minutes of our notifying the staff (on Sunday!). He identified the problem immediately as a defective part, and arranged for its replacement. Until the repair was completed, they graciously let us use the fridge in a nearby unit. My parents who accompanied us on our trip loved the condo so much and the neighborhood so much they have already decided they will definitely be back again, abandoning the nearby resort where they have been renting for the last 15 years.

Convenient, pretty, relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well laid out for four adults plus room for two more people in the sofa bed. It was very clean and the screened-in lanai was very relaxing. It's a short, scenic, walk to the beach, and an even shorter one to the pool and hot tub.

Location is near some of the beach's nicest eateries and to the Publix. All in all, a wonderful stay. Oh, and there is netflix streaming, plus great DVD collection and small but top-notch library.

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

This condo has all of the amenities you can ask for, swimming, tennis, bike riding and more. Our family had a wonderful time site seeing St. Augustine and checking out the local restaurants. If you want to relax and disconnect from stress this is the place to go. Just bring you beach towel and chill out.

Only the Best!

  • 5 of 5

I have only the best words for your condo! We had a great time at your condo, and the kids loved it a lot. We called it our home for ten days, and for sure we are coming back next year. We had everything we needed at your condo, and the whole experience vacationing at The Ocean Gallery was "out of this world". We made frequent tours to downtown St. Augustine, and we love the city. We are even talking about buying a condo ourselves in a near future.
