Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-5)

Ground floor unit is newly outfitted and stocked for your vacation! New sofa, coffee/end tables, and dining table in August.

If you can't find your dates available for this ground floor unit, we have another property in the same building on the 3rd Floor.

Ocean Village Club condo community was just rated 2014's BEST Condo community in Florida. We’re private owners (not a listing agency) and will personally treat you with courtesy, respect, and attentiveness. We've just purchased #709656, but you can check out our 5-star reviews at #3769671.

This Ground floor unit is just steps to the heated pool - which you can view from your living room or the screened porch. You’re just a short stroll to the sugar sand beach, outside pool, shuffle board, and the SUN. Great rates, well-maintained, and tastefully decorated. Your adventures while staying at Ocean Village Club are limitless... you can SUN, SWIM, SURF, PLAY TENNIS, FISH, GOLF, SHOP, or visit Disney, Kennedy Space Center, and other nearby sites, or just RELAX.

We’ve just finished the unit, so you’ve got lots of new items – including new Queen mattress, rain showerheads, pillows, full-size washer/dryer, 2 flat screen TV's, DVD/Blueray, fans, lights, cookware, towels, beach supplies, beach toys and more.

Our tasteful two-bedroom, two-bath condominium is located in G building. The unit is completely and comfortably furnished for your enjoyment, including bed/bath linens, a fully-accessorized kitchen, a sleeper couch, a new front-loader LG washer/dryer, and beach supplies (towels, chairs, coolers, and toys). The club house offers a library, computer (DSL) and exercise room. DSL and FREE WIRELESS are ALSO available in our condo. You supply your own laptop.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, flatscreen TV w/ DVD/Blu-Ray player and DVR, and its own master bathroom. The second bedroom has a Queen bed and plenty of closet space. There is an additional bathroom just off the second bedroom.

The dining area includes a table which seats six. This sprawls into the living room - which is completely furnished including cable flatscreen TV, DVD/Blu-Ray player, as well as sliders leading to the screened porch. The screened porch is furnished with chairs - perfect for relaxing and taking in a tennis match or surfing the web while sipping a cool beverage.

COMPLEX – Ocean Village Club just won the 2014 Florida Condominium Community of the Year award – recognized by the Florida Communities of Excellence awards program. The grounds are immaculately maintained, and rival (if not surpass) many resorts.

LOCATION AND SITES - When not relaxing on the beach, you can visit the fabulous historic city of Saint Augustine, the oldest city in the nation, just 15 minutes away. While in Saint Augustine, you can enjoy historic sites, fabulous shops, and fine restaurants. You can tour the famous Castillo De San Marcos Fort (17th-century fortress), the Alligator Farm, Fountain of Youth, Potters Wax Museum, horse-drawn carriage rides, San Sebastian Winery, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and so much more. If shopping is your fancy, you are located only 15 min from the famous St. Augustine outlets.

CENTRAL LOCATION - You are centrally located to many of “the basics”- 0.5 miles from SaltWater Cowboys restaurant, the Purple Olive restaurant, or Hurricane Bar and Grill, 1 mile from TWO grocery stores, 1 mile to Hungry Howie’s Pizza, 0.5 mile from St. Augustine's best breakfast (Oasis restaurant), 0.5 mile to a Walgreens and 5 mile from the shopping district at the intersection of US 1-312 (HomeDepot, Marshall’s, Target, Staples, Chick Filet, Sonny’s BBQ, Burger King, McDonald’s, Outback Steaks, and much, much more).

SPORTS - Besides the FREE on-site amenities (two pools, tennis courts, and shuffleboard and all the beach you-care-to-enjoy) you can partake in surfing, fishing, and boating. Of course, great golf courses are very close - including Sawgrass/Ponte Vedra (TPC). We’re also close to the World Golf Village - where you can tour the World Golf Hall of Fame and see an I-Max movie.

About Jean and Jeff Kerchner

We spent 4 years living in Central Florida. During this time, we visited many sites and shores. By far, our favorite, and most frequented, was historic and mystical St. Augustine. We love people watching in the historic district, the live music, and shelling on the beaches.

Jean and Jeff Kerchner purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jean and Jeff Kerchner chose Saint Augustine

Over 20 years ago, we were married on the beach in St. Augustine. We fell in love with the beautiful sandy beaches and the historic streets. Loving it so much, we decided to purchase this quiet, 1st floor unit, and some day retire here. The condo association is very active, maintains the grounds superbly, and they just won the #1 condo association in Florida award.

What makes this condo unique

We just purchased the unit in April, so it is newly outfitted, stocked, and painted. Since we are private owners, we give you so much more than the minimum required by community or commercial rental agencies. In addition, the location of this unit doesn't get better - to interior amenities (such as the pool) or exterior amenities. You are literally walking distance to restaurants, bars, and even groceries. While drinking a ice-cold glass of sweat tea, I enjoy watching my teenagers play tennis and swim in the heated pool. Not overlooking the obvious, I love the short stroll to the beach. It is a flat beach that is excellent for walking or bike riding. Ocean village is a private gated community, and it is becoming more private with the new serialized gate cards in May 2015. In addition, the community does a great job in maintaining a resort-like feel and providing a clean, quiet, and quaint experience for all. We hope you will cherish your new memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location, very clean, and the condo offered more than I expected. We stepped off the plane and the owners thought of everything - coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella....even several beach toys. Great price for the amenities! We loved the rain shower heads, quality linens and towels. They even had a brand new washer and dryer. We're definitely coming back. Thanks so much.

FABULOUS CONDO! CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN!!

  • 5 of 5

Jean and Jeff are the absolute BEST! My husband and I, along with our best friends stayed there August 30 to September 2 and wish we would have stayed longer!!! This condo is SPOTLESS! Jean answered all of our questions, the property was equipped with EVERYTHING you would ever need----even beach chairs, umbrella, ice chests and a cart to haul everything to the beautiful beach, which is just a short walk from the condo. PLUS, it is just steps away from the pool!!!! The two Queen beds were VERY comfortable. We felt very safe in this gated community. Downtown St. Augustine is a 15 minute drive away, and reminds me of the French Quarter in New Orleans, as I am a native. So much to do there!!! Shopping, restaurants, grocery stores are close to the condo. We will definitely be back! Thank you Jean and Jeff!!

Jean and Jeff have got to be at the TOP of the Game when it comes to Vacation Rentals. This was our third year staying at their beautiful condo. Relaxing and comfortable, clean, fully equipped condo which makes any vacation stay carefree and comfortable. Thank you Jean and Jeff for your continued care and pride in your units.

Good Location, Horrible Beds

  • 4 of 5

Upside - all amenities needed were included (except a pizza pan!), beach items were available (chairs, umbrellas, towels, & coolers). Located very close to the pool and a short walk from the boardwalk (about 5 min give/take depending on the crowd you have with you). Parking available right outside. No steps to maneuver. Grocery stores (Winn Dixie/Publix) just a mile or so down the road.

Downside - both rooms had very uncomfortable mattresses (we switched out with our daughter for two nights, but the other bed wasn't any better!). I don't think I ever slept more than 3 hours at a time and I'm usually a 6-8 hour sleeper per night. Missing sleep was really irritating, but on the upside I saw the sunrise more on this trip than any of my other ones. The other downside was bugs - we saw two at different times and that kind of freaked us out...praying we left them all in Florida!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We love the area also. We have a wide variety of kitchen items and had some cookie trays stored below the oven. Thanks for bringing the pizza pan to our attention. Addressing the mattresses, each individual has specific preferences. The mattresses in this unit are firm. With regard to the bug comment, our association sprays periodically since Florida is a tropical climate. We also request additional sprayings when any single bug is noticed. In fact, we visited the unit the day of your departure and requested an additional spraying that week. Here's to the beach.

Great place in St. Augustine

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this great condo! Has low sitting beach chairs ( good for short people like me), beach umbrella, cooler, and even a cart to haul everything to the beach! Comfortable bed and cozy atmosphere. Kitchen is well equipped even though I did not cook. Publix, Dollar Tree and restaurants close by. Quite condo and screened in porch. Pool was just steps away! Great place to stay. Owners were great to work with and very accommodating with answering all my questions and helping me out!
