Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

A beach vacation should be as fun and easy as a summer day, and when you stay at our ground-floor condo at Ocean & Racquet 5116, the good life is waiting for you. Steps from a swimming pool and just yards from the ocean, it's your perfect Florida getaway!

Forget about stairs and elevators while you're here -- you can just stroll up to your front door, and slip out anytime for a quick dip in the pool, soak in the spa or game on the court. If you're traveling with children, you'll love the convenience. And if anyone in your group has accessibility issues, the accommodations couldn't be better!

Start your days on the patio outside our living and dining area. Here you can enjoy the balmy air, salty breezes, and the sound of the surf! Cradle a cup of coffee while pelicans soar overhead on their way to the ocean, early fishermen stroll over to the nearby ponds and docks to try their luck, and another perfect Florida day breaks.

If you wake up especially early one morning, you will witness the breathtaking sunrise. And the beach is always smooth and "new" in morning, with shells half-buried at the high-tide mark. Walk down your private boardwalk onto the sands and enjoy!

You'll want to spend all day on the patio, but when it's time to go indoors, you won't be disappointed. It's so cool, light, and comfortable in here, with ceiling fans and tiled floors. Enjoy a show on TV, pop a disk into the DVD player, or stretch out on the long couch (which converts to a bed) for a nap. After all, you're on vacation, and relaxation is the only order of business!

At Ocean & Racquet 5116, you can make the condo as communal or as private as you like. When you're entertaining, throw open the sliding glass door, connecting your space with the pool surround outside. When it's time for privacy, just close the blinds and the world goes away!

Attached to the living room is the dining area, with a big table for 6 and a counter handy for buffet-style meals. This table is also a great place to spread out a jigsaw puzzle or a board game, crayons and paper for the kids and the Sunday papers for the grown-ups!

Whether you want to cook delicious fresh seafood, homemade feasts, or as little as possible during your vacation, you'll enjoy the kitchen at Ocean & Racquet 5116. It's fully stocked with cookware, dishes, and utensils, as well as all the appliances -- large and small! -- which make your time in the kitchen easier. Everything is sparkling clean and in perfect working order.

Speaking of making your time easier, there are also a washer and dryer at the condo, so pack light! You never have to worry about "just one more" trip to the beach or the pool when you know you can get the swimsuits and towels dry in a flash. Pop a load in the wash on your way out the door in the morning, and you'll be all fixed up!

But the best part of Ocean & Racquet 5116 is probably the bedrooms. Relaxation and sound sleep are so important on vacation, and so hard to get in noisy hotels or motels. Here you'll sleep peacefully in comfortable beds and spacious rooms!

The master suite is luxurious, with a queen-sized bed, TV, and plenty of space. The en suite bath has both a shower and tub option and is wonderfully private. Retire early and sleep late in your own sanctuary!

The second bedroom is perfect for children or a second couple traveling with you, with 2 twin beds. It's convenient to the second full bathroom. All linens, pillows, blankets, and towel sets are provided for this condo.

You will love the gated Ocean & Racquet Club resort, with its multiple swimming pools and tennis courts, plus shuffleboard, racquetball, Jacuzzi, and so much more. Make it your home base for all your St. Augustine adventures!

VRBO did not respond to my calls and emails regarding the condition of the property

  • 2 of 5

The room was dirty. The wifi didn't work. The shower leaked and made noise. The blinds in the living room and master bedroom didn't work. The TV in the master bedroom didn't work. Fortunately, the beach was close.

NO OCEAN VIEW...it's not true...view of the parking lot!

  • 2 of 5

I am not sure why I never saw March 22, 2017 review saying that there is no ocean view when I booked this condo but they are right...there is NO OCEAN VIEW! FALSE ADVERTISING-breach of contract Vacation Rental Pros!!! If Vacation Rental Pros/VRBO state that a unit has an ocean view, then it better have an ocean view. My family and I live thousands of miles away so when I read a description of something, am asked to sign a contract then I expect to receive what is listed. The unit was close to the beach but that is the only positive part of this condo. I should have known better when looking at the picture shown-of the parking lot...shame on me. My husband and I spent HOURS trying to get a hold of Vacation Rental Pros (the 'owner'-managers of this unit) after checking in- to ask for another location that had an ocean view & were given the runaround (after being hung up on three times then transferred FOUR times we left a message and sent an email) then no one returned our phone calls or emails we sent. Unfortunately we paid up front and had our hands tied as to moving to another location. We were not going to spend any more of our very limited vacation trying to make things right. VRBO gives a "BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE" guarantee but when we contacted them they said they could not do anything else besides file a claim with their trust and securities department and ask the owner to make things right with us. I spent about two hours on the phone with three different nice gentlemen at VRBO trying to get help as well but nothing was done to rectify the situation. What other reviewers say is also true...this unit VERY outdated. We found it to be dark and dingy and needing serious updating. Mattresses have to be 20-30 years old-no kidding.

Cleanliness was also an issue. Vacation Rental Pros claim to 'meticulously clean' all of their units but that is not what we found. Human hair in beds, on towels, on the floor, in the shower, on the shower curtains- dead bugs on the floor and corners. Dust on silk plants and lamps.The furniture was sticky with food & dirt-the cushions on bamboo chairs were filthy-stains covered every inch of them-I could no. Bed pillows were stained and lumpy. All in all-this condo was more than disappointing, Vacation Rental Pros were less than ethical and not impressive and VRBO's guarantee does not hold one iota of weight with me and my family. I recommend looking for another unit to stay

The property is nice but the condo is so outdated.

  • 3 of 5

We wasted half of an afternoon with someone on the phone trying to help us get Wi-Fi in and waiting for someone to come. He came but never was able to secure Wi-Fi for us. This unit is old and needs updating. There were noises they kept us up most nights.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

There was NO ocean view, even though this unit was presented as such. The only view from this unit is the parking lot. It was however, a short walk to the beach. The beds and furniture were uncomfortable. The furniture was scuffed up. The unit was outdated. We reserved the grill area but the tables needed scrubbing, which we were willing to do, but there was no water. Was surprised when we had to pay additional parking fee to condo association.

Right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have been back every year to St. Augustine ocean and Racquet Resort. We have stayed in the same condo for the past two years. The resort is directly on the beach and nicely located for dining and shopping. There are activities at the clubhouse which makes O&R quite unique.
