About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

This very spacious (2500 sq. feet!), beautifully maintained condo is in a lovely, small complex with only 9 attached units per building. The two floor town home is in the newest complex on St. Augustine Beach and this unit has many benefits. It is an end unit with own private, internal elevator, a 2 car garage and a small, fenced 'backyard' located directly adjacent to the most quiet pool. It has access to other pools, a jacuzzi, a tennis court, and is a short walk to the beach.

Fully furnished throughout, with three upstairs bedrooms and two full baths (the 2nd and 3rd rooms have a Jack and Jill bath), and a third 1/2 bath is downstairs. The large master bedroom has a king bed with a balcony, a huge bath suite including a walk-in closet, separate jetted tub and walk-in shower, toilet room and double vanity. Both the other bedrooms have queen beds with balconies of their own! (There is a couch in the downstairs living room/main room that could sleep one extra). Full size washer and dryer (iron) are found upstairs in an insulated utility room. All linens are supplied, just bring your suitcases!

Downstairs you will find a large, completely equipped kitchen (full size appliances and coffee maker) with granite counter tops, a family room, a dining room and bar to seat a maximum of 6, a foosball table, 2 closets, a 1/2 bath and a private lanai.

The complex is located in the great community of St. Augustine and only 10 minutes from downtown with all of its ancient history and wonderful restaurants, a new movie theater, an amphitheater, golf courses, fishing piers, Marineland, shopping, and of course, numerous water activities. The Villas is located on the beach side (east) of A1A directly on the ocean but this unit does not have an ocean view. Beach access is on the property with a short boardwalk stroll to the water! Beach chairs, beach towels, an umbrella, and beach toys are all available for your use. All you really need is your swimsuit and sunscreen!

Should you want to leave the area you are about 30 minutes from Jacksonville and 2 hours from Disney World (Orlando). There are plenty of activities to enjoy! We hope that you will make it your own, find time to relax and have some fun in our home away from home.

Why Lauri Barnhill chose Saint Augustine

Grew up less than an hour from St. Augustine and have loved coming here since I was young. It is an amazing city with the most beautiful, sandy beaches and the Villas of Ocean Gate are so nice, new and well-maintained. Paradise is in our backyard!

What makes this condo unique

Relaxing, running the beach, cycling, swimming, reading and eating a wonderful array of food:)

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming here for years now and just love the condo, the complex, and St. Augustine!! The condo is very large and with 4 kids under the age of 15 we are not on top of each other. It's quiet yet close to everything. Love the balconies off every room, the pool being so close, and having our "own" garage. Even the walk to the beach is pleasant. We treat it like our home away from home and the owners are so easy to work with, they feel like family after so many returns. Don't hesitate to come here, you will have no regrets. Sorry to have to go and already looking forward to next time! Thanks!

Awesome villa!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back last week from staying at this very lovely villa. We had a great experience and we would give a positive recommendation for this villa, and area, to anyone. The villa was very clean and in a great location, right beside one of the villa's pools that wasn't used very much. We appreciated the extra attention given and we felt welcomed as soon as we arrived. The beach was a short three minute walk away from this unit and a very nice beach it was. The area /town was clean. St. Augustine and St. Augustine beach were easy to get around in and lots of places to eat and full of things to do. Thanks again for opening up your villa and allowing us to share a wonder place to vacation.

Fatastic place to stay!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a great place to stay. Our family which includes my son, daughter-in-law, 7 month old grandson, daughter and son-in law and of course my husband had such a wonderful stay here. It is so roomy and quiet and has a fantastic large kitchen! My kids love to cook (skipped a generation) and they could all get in there and prepare dinner at night. We did go out a couple of nights and it was very convenient to go into St. Augustine or south of the condo. The location was great! The pool next to the condo was very nice and not loud at all. We had a great time swimming with the baby. I would highly recommend this property to everyone!

A special place

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had in this lovely condo. We’re snowbirds and stayed here from mid January to April this year (2012) and enjoyed 3 months of special memories. The condo is very spacious and spotlessly clean. The floors are hardwood and ceramic, with carpeting in the 3 bedrooms. The three bedrooms all have balconies, one facing North, one East and one South. There’s also a patio off the living room which faces South, so whatever the weather we always found a place for sun or shade. We loved having our morning coffee sitting on the balcony off the master bedroom, which overlooks two pools, and many nights we sat out there enjoying star filled nights.

A feature we really enjoyed was the double garage where, upon arrival, we unloaded our car and took our things in at our leisure. Such a nice change from other condo experiences where we had to carry everything up flights of stairs. Indoors, there’s an elevator, so once again we didn’t have to carry suitcases upstairs, we just put them in the elevator...and sent them up. The elevator would also be an excellent feature for someone with a disability who found walking upstairs difficult.

The location of the condo is perfect, in a very quiet court, right next to a pool and a very short walk along the resort boardwalk to the beautiful beach. It’s in a central location and close to local restaurants and 2 supermarkets. A 15 minute drive takes you into the old city of St. Augustine, with its wonderful cobblestone streets and oh so much to see and do.

The owners, Lauri and Robert, did everything they could to ensure that our stay was excellent. They truly are hands on owners.

We’ve already booked for next year and have no hesitation in recommending this condo to anyone who is looking for a special place to spend a few days, weeks or months.

Great Weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for the great weekend getaway! The condo is amazing and my daughter loved the pink room and feel in love and wanted to stay forever. The condo is well maintained, clean and the pool is right there. I would highly recommend you check it out for a long weekend getaway or if you have longer then stay for a whole month.

Fantastic Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a week of relaxation. The unit is beautiful, extremely clean and spacious. We loved that the pool is right next to the condo, plus the pool was rarely used which made it quite easy to take our 9 month old to test the water! We had our own personal playground!

The walk to the beach is quite simple and enjoyable.

We had a hard time finding restaurants until we realized that there are brochures in the kitchen drawer with recommendations. The owners have made this unit incredibly accommodating!

Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
