Everything's just a little newer and nicer at our townhouse at Ocean Club I 34, a mere stone's throw from St. Augustine Beach. Our condo in this oceanfront resort is beautifully appointed and very easy to fall in love with, from its patio to its sundeck!<br/><br/>The emphasis is on sunshine and water at Ocean Club I 34. Located in a small oceanside complex with easy access to the beach (less than a 1-minute walk!), it features comfortably decorated rooms, plus a private patio, balcony, and sundeck!<br/><br/>The "extras" begin with the private garage, oversized to fit not only your car but also any equipment you might w...ish to bring, such as bicycles, a kayak, or surfboards. Keep your car out of the hot sun and your beach toys out of the house with this convenient garage!<br/><br/>The patio is next. Looking out onto the grassy courtyard and at one of the 2 sparkling swimming pools in our complex, it's a lovely place to enjoy that first cup of the coffee in the morning, as the sky turns colors and another perfect day begins.<br/><br/>Step inside our living area and you're immediately refreshed by the ceiling fan and tempted to stretch out and relax on the comfortable couch or in the recliner. An HDTV with DVD player is ready to play your favorite movies and shows. Everything in this room is calming and cool -- the perfect wind-down from a day spent outdoors sightseeing or swimming!<br/><br/>The dining area is connected to the living room, keeping the group together even when some of them want to watch the big game on TV and others prefer a game of dominoes. Our sturdy table seats up to 6, and also makes a good area to set up the laptop and organize your next adventure. (You have free wireless Internet at Ocean Club I 34.) <br/><br/>And then there's our kitchen, completely renovated to lure gourmet and reluctant chefs alike into its midst! Stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and polished wood cabinetry beckon to you, and if you do decide to whip up a few homemade meals this vacation, you'll find everything you need for just about any culinary task. Cookware, utensils, gadgets, dishes -- they're all here for you! Even if you're just making blender drinks and serving takeout, you'll enjoy the time you spend in this kitchen.<br/><br/>When it's bedtime, even the kids will be hard-pressed to complain about their soothing, beautiful accommodations. Both of our bedrooms lead out onto balconies where you can hear the roar of the surf and smell that salty sea breeze, so retire a little earlier than usual and take a drink outdoors for stargazing! <br/><br/>The master bedroom features an ultra-comfortable king bed, new HDTV, ceiling fan, and plenty of dresser and closet space. It leads out onto the sundeck, a private uncovered spot just right for anytime you wish to commune with the beautiful outdoors. Most of all, it has space -- this is a far cry from those cramped hotel rooms where you must leap over your suitcase to find a bit of bare floor. Unpack, unwind, and enjoy!<br/><br/>The newly renovated master bathroom has a walk-in shower, and all towels are provided for you, as well as all linens, blankets, and pillows at Ocean Club I 34. You can pack very lightly this trip, for our private washer and dryer keep you in fresh clean clothes and beach towels every day!<br/><br/>The newly renovated second bedroom is as lovely as the master, with a queen bed and new HDTV and access to the covered balcony, which offers a view of the swimming pool. The second bathroom contains both a bathtub and shower option, and is convenient to this bedroom. And if you need to sleep a couple more people, open up the living room couch into a bed for 2!<br/><br/>Ocean Club is on St. Augustine Beach, a family-friendly wide strip of coastline with sparkling waves, good beachcombing, and plenty of sand for playing and sunbathing. The Intracoastal Waterway is also nearby, as well as world-class golf, shopping, dining, and sightseeing. You're right in the heart of beautiful vacationland here at Ocean Club I 34, so plan to visit soon.
Additional amenities include: biking, boating, beach, fishing, washer / dryer.Read more

We had a wonderful vacation at St. Augustine Beach. We really enjoyed the condo at Ocean Club I. It was very clean and well maintained for the age of the complex. We loved the location and the layout of the unit. The location is very convenient and met all of our needs. It was just a short walk to the beach. It was nice to have a garage to park our car in and to store our beach chairs, etc. We also enjoyed sitting out on the two balconies each night. While we were there we met several condo owners who lived in the complex and they were all very nice and friendly. Everything was very positive about the unit. The washer and dryer was a plus. The only negative experience we had was upon arrival we washed the towels and sheets and when we went to dry them the dryer did not work but after calling maintenance they had a repair man out the next morning and he replaced the dryer belt and had in running in no time. We loved staying at the Ocean Club and we are looking forward to our next trip back to St. A. Beach. I would highly recommend Ocean Club I to anyone who is looking for a condo with a nice and friendly family atmosphere. We had a wonderful experience and we will definitely stay at the Ocean Club again.
Joan S.'s review of Ocean Club I 34, pool, walk to the beach
Left on 07/15/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Joan S.
The condo was very clean, newly remodeled...we have stayed at ocean club many times, this condo was the best by far. close to pool and beach with lots of updates,loved the new kitchen. On the down side,the beds were hard as rocks!! New mattresses are badly needed!! There were only a few towels and washcloths, so we had to go out and buy our own. Would suggest some work be done on the two showers (age is showing) missing tiles etc. But overall we loved this condo and would pick it for our next stay. One more word about renting with this company the check in and check out service stinks!! traffic jams and accidents waiting to happen at the very small building and parking lot where you get your keys, our lock box was rusted so much I couldn't even move the numbers on the lock...there has to a better way...stagger check in times or was a total mess!
great updated property, close to the beach
Left on 07/02/2012 for a stay in June 2012 |
When we arrived, the property appeared bright and clean. We loved the updated kitchen and overall look of the rental. A few easy repairs that would have made the property look even better: the first floor shower was missing a tile and one of the dresser handles was missing (it was inside the dresser drawer with its screws). Also, when we went to make one of the beds after the first night, we found a dirty sock down near the bottom of the sheets that did not belong to us-does that mean the sheets hadn't been washed prior to our arrival? Otherwise, a good rental-we especially liked having a washer, dryer, and garage and appreciated the wagon, beach toys and chairs left in the garage by the owners to use on the beach.
The water goes behind the wall in the shower. Only bad comment.

Very good experience. We were satisfied with everything except the fact that the water goes behind the wall in the shower.
Paradise in Saint Augustine, FL

Our family has vacationed in St. Augustine for about 20 years. We consistently go back to the Ocean Clubs because of the pristine beauty, the quiet elegance and the optimal location! We are only steps to the fine white powder beach and only a glimpse away
