Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Saint Augustine - Ocean House Condos Unit 105

2 bedroom, 2 bath ocean view upon 40 feet of patio

Located at Ocean House Condominiums, right in the heart of ocean living in St. Augustine, FL at Crescent Beach! Ocean House Condominiums have long been a favorite for families looking for that perfect vacation spot. Located a few miles south of historic Old St. Augustine, our vacation home is near everything to make your vacation the best ever.

Enjoy panoramic views of both the ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. Ocean House is located on Crescent Beach, which is uncommercialized, sparsely populated and known for its white crystalline sand and rolling dunes crested with waving sea oats and colorful wildflowers. Our condominium has floor to ceiling windows with sliding patio doors leading from the living room and each bedroom to your 40-foot private balcony.

We are located on the first floor and offer two bedrooms and two full baths about 1200 sg ft of living space.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, an en suite master bathroom and color cable television. The second bedroom has two twin size beds which can be converted to a king upon request. The second bedroom also has a flat screen color cable television. The second bathroom is located just off of the hallway leading to the second bedroom and is convenient for everyone's use.

In our living room area, we have a flat screen color cable television, DVD and VCR player and comfortable furniture to relax in after a long day at the beach. Bedrooms have a large number of books for you to read or take/leave a book and we have Wireless internet.

The fully electric kitchen is well equipped for those home away from home cooked meals. You will also find a washer and dryer in the unit.

Ocean House Condominiums also offer a large sundeck on the ocean front, a large pool, a grilling area with gas grills, and a small putting green. Two large sundecks (west facing) on each end to view the sunset over the Intercoastal Waterway. Each sundeck offers a variety of furniture to relax in and sip a cocktail.

We will be delighted to have you stay with us and give you the whole scoop on places to go as well as nearby amenities! There are numerous outdoor and indoor activities in the area. Spend a day at Marine Land, the Alligator Farm, St. Augustine Outlets, St. Augustine Light House or Old St. Augustine strolling along the water front or among the historic cobblestone streets browsing boutiques or dining in any one of the plentiful and exceptional restaurants. While in St. Augustine, be sure to grab a trolley ride through town (on/off for free after initial ticket purchase). Also available are Cathedral Basilica (oldest church in the US), Ft. Castillo National Monument, Old Jail and Ripley's Believe It or Not.

Bring your boat! Devil's Elbow is less than a half mile up A1A which has a launch into the Intercoastal Waterway. Minutes to the open ocean. With prior arrangements, we can secure a place to park your boat at the condo.

Bring your windsurfers and surf boards! Rent our sea kayaks for the week and have a blast.

There are several very well manicured golf courses within an hour or less: St Augustine Shores Club, Marsh Creek Country Club, Royal St. Augustine Golf, and St. Johns County. Several miniature golf courses are in the area as well.

The incredible shopping, food and nightlife of Old St. Augustine are less than 10 minutes away. The St. Augustine Amphitheater offers high visibility venues for reasonable prices year round and is only 10 minutes straight up A1A.

Jacksonville is within an hours drive – perfect for a day long excursion for the more adventurous ones wanting to experience what more the area has to offer! Don't forget to visit The Landing for fine dining, shopping and the arts. Check out the nightly schedule for events on The Landing.

Both Savannah, GA and Orlando, FL are each only a couple of hours away. Savannah offers a beautiful historic setting and varied gastronomic choices. Orlando provides several sports teams, eclectic eateries and...Disney World in under two hours.

About Tracie Crawshaw

Growing up in a small town in Pennsylvania, going to the ocean was a vacation to behold. And, having served in the Navy for over 20 years, I had ample opportunity to be stationed at, or visit some, of the best beaches in the world. I assure you the sands at our condo are as soft (think baby powered between your toes) and nearly as white as the sands in Kaulia, HI. YES, and we are right here south of Jacksonville, FL and just north of Daytona Beach, FL waiting for your and your family or friends.

Tracie Crawshaw purchased this condo in 2014

Why Tracie Crawshaw chose St. Augustine Area

If you want to see and hear ocean and enjoy softest sand with a quiet condo with all the amenities, then our unit is for you. Sunrises over the ocean from our patio in the morning and sunsets over the Intercoastal Waterway on the two large decks ready for you and your beverage.

Enjoy the quiet. Only 62 units in the complex. Many folks are residents and several own more than one unit with many units passed down through the generations. Friendly folks on the best beach!

If you enjoy quiet at a pristine beach, with access to great attractions (St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Orlando, Savannah, GA), then you found the right unit, our unit.

What makes this condo unique

We love the unimpeded views from the private patios off of our living room, master bedroom and second bedroom! For superior comfort and presentation, we completely remodeled the unit from floor to ceiling. All new furnishings, new Nautica linens and quilts, fresh paint, new flooring and removal of pesky popcorn ceiling!

Our pictures just do not do the area, or unit justice.

condo beauty!

  • 5 of 5

This condo lived up to its description and photos. The remodel of the unit is very tastefully decorated. Loved the wall decor and the furniture and bedding very comfy. Unit was not cluttered with unnecessary furniture so it was very roomy. Kitchen had quality cookware and towels were also quality and plenty of them esp. beach towels, however we had our own and didn't need them. We did use the Morey boogieboard which was better than one of the ones we brought. Ocean House has a short walkover to the beach unlike some of the St. Augustine condos. Parking was easy and love the elevators as i am a senior citizen. Thank you to the owner Tracie who made reserving the unit quick and easy and the office manager Kim was very friendly and helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer, Crescent Beach is the best!

An outstanding value

  • 4 of 5

We found the condo quite nice and very spacious. The kitchen was updated with up-to-date appliances and the bathrooms were also beautiful. The amenities of the building itself were superior to others in the area (elevators,luggage trolleys,shopping carts). We especially enjoyed the sunning decks on the West end of the building. The condo was well maintained and we recommend it as a good destination.

Walk down the hall to the back pool area n steps from the beach..Ocean view from the patio, very clean and friendly people.. We only wish the weather towards the end of our visit was cold but lucky to have St Augustine close by!

stress free, comfortable vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed a week at this condo and found it one of the most pleasant places I have ever stayed at.The condo has every amenity I needed. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we needed to cook meals. The owners have furnished the rooms tastefully and comfortably. The complex is quiet and nothing was crowded. Lots of room around the pool, lots of room on the largest beach I have ever been on. The condo is convenient to a large grocery store (8 minutes) and to St. Augustine (15-20 minutes). There is lots to do or comfortable enough to do nothing but lie on the beach and listen to the Ocean. This was one of my most relaxing and enjoyable vacations ever. Will definitely do it again soon. I can't recommend this condo highly enough.
