“All the amenities of a resort. All the comforts of home”

For our party of 2 that vacations together, we could not have wanted more than the complete package that is Ocean Gallery, and specifically the unit we rented, 55 Las Palmas.

It is no exaggeration to call this the best address on the beach. The gated community is staffed by a friendly and helpful team, and populated by welcoming neighbors. We felt completely at home in this 2 bedroom/2full bath with screened porch and designated parking.
As advertised, your rental will include access to community amenities, and they are as lovely as pictured. It was too cold during our stay to enjoy the pools, but both were open and sparkling clean, with plenty of chairs and tables. The workout room is small, and can feel cramped once more than one person is engaged. But all the equipment worked, and towels and water are provided. Try the sauna and hot tub for full relaxation --- or just walk the beautiful beaches! Sign out a bike for the day; the community has several for all sizes.

The beach access is a little tricky to find. Don't try too hard. Just follow the sidewalk through the Premiere Vista courtyard and you will find the boardwalk. This is hard-packed sand with wilderness banks. Saint Augustine seems perpetually windy, so this may not be the type of beach you are expecting. Run, walk, play games, build castles, shell seek, take photos. All can be done on this wide expanse of sparsely populated sand. If you want to sit on towels and read in the sun, try the public beaches a little further south. Anastasia State Park in also wilderness beach, but with deeper drier dunes, a bathhouse and snack shack. There is a per car parking fee. While both are lovely in their own way, you should understand the nature of Floridas Atlantic beaches and pick the right terrain for your activities. A mix of the 2 styles can be found at St Johns County Fishing Pier, where parking is free and the pier walk is picturesque.

For local nightlife, enjoy Happy hour at any of the local spots on A1A and Beach Blvd. We tried several. Most are casual, and locally or regionally owned, with fresh seafood and stocked bars. Find my reviews for specific restaurants under my profile. We tended to eat lightly during the day, find a Happy Hour in the evening, but eat breakfast and dinner in the condo.

Your host has thought of everything, indoors and out, for all types of weather. We enjoyed the boardgames, novels, and DVDs in his collection, and were able to call up our Netflix account on the large Smart TV in the main room. Breakfast on the screen porch allowed us to watch the local wildlife, and the occasional passing shower, barefoot with coffee cups in hand.

Do consider your group as you shop for lodgings. Walls are thin between units here. You will be dependent on the consideration of your neighbors, so give them the same in return. The loft bedroom and bathroom in this unit are up a flight of about 10 steps, which may be difficult for some. The unit, too, is on a 2nd level, with some steps to climb. The rest of the development is walkable and wheelchair friendly. While this was not an issue for us, it is worth considering if it might be for you.

The kitchen is stocked with appliances and cookware, plenty of dishes for a small or large party. We were able to use fresh dishes daily and run the dishwasher only once. On your arrival, you'll find a small kit of soap, sponge, and dishwasher tablets, as well as 2 coffee packets -- particularly thoughtful, since we arrived late in the evening.

You are within a mile of 2 grocery stores. Publix stocks wine and beer as well. Bathroom tissue will be provided, but consider foil, storage bags, paper towels, and other type goods you use often. These are not kept in stock. Ocean Gallery does not have a recycling program, so prepare to pack-out if that is an option for you. We did not find the local St A transfer station, but there is bound to be one in This island community. We were driving, so we brought our recycling out by car. We would have prepared with extra bags or a bin if we had known.

There was not one thing about this vacation rental that was not first rate, yet it was quite affordable and just perfect for our needs. Message me through TripAdvisor if you have any specific questions about this rental, or about our Saint Augustine experience. I would love to see you have as good a time as we did.

“Exactly What We Were Looking For”
Reviewed 7 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Love your home, it's exactly what we wanted. Owner quickly and professionally responded to our inquiry. The unit was clean and had all amenities we needed. Ocean Gallery was great, very helpful staff. Beach access was easy, pools were clean and beautiful. We had a wonderful stay, it was a great way to finish off our road trip. We've met such great Condo owners here also. Love it and plan to venture back again. Thank you again for everything!

“Excellent, relaxing vacation”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife and I just returned from a one week stay at this very nice condo vacation rental. We were not disappointed! The condo has everything that you could need for a nice relaxing vacation. The pools and hot tubs were immaculate and well maintained as were the grounds at Ocean Gallery. The beach was just a 5 minute walk and was one of the nicest, cleanest beaches that we have ever visited. A great value for a slice of paradise. I would highly recommend this rental when considering a relaxing vacation property

“Good value and really enjoyable”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We all liked your condo very much indeed. It had a range of facilities that we all used, including the gym and the tennis courts. In fact, there was simply not enough hours in the day to use all the facilities. The resort’s beach gear was not available, but it was fine because we used the beach chairs in the closet under your condo, also we were very pleased with the body boards and the noodles for use in the water. There was a very good range of equipment in the kitchen and I was able to prepare meals easily. There was ample space to accommodate all three of us (the beds were enormous compared to the beds in the UK!!), even when we wanted to do different things, and we all had a great time watching the three televisions available. Your note on the fridge helped us to find all that we needed in the local area. When I discovered your phone was not working, the complex staff quickly addressed the issue and the phone was back in use within the day, with other phone service provided during the outage. The staff could not have been more helpful. One criticism: a similar business in England would have recycling, and we were disappointed at its absence here. All in all, our holiday was really good and I would not hesitate to recommend your condo to my friends and family.

“Comfort, convenience, superb staff: our vacation was the best it could be!”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful stay, and the staff at the check-in office were fabulous. The unit was clean and very comfortable (especially the beds) and we had everything we could have needed. When there was a problem with the refrigerator, a repairman was at the door within minutes of our notifying the staff (on Sunday!). He identified the problem immediately as a defective part, and arranged for its replacement. Until the repair was completed, they graciously let us use the fridge in a nearby unit. My parents who accompanied us on our trip loved the condo so much and the neighborhood so much they have already decided they will definitely be back again, abandoning the nearby resort where they have been renting for the last 15 years.

Liked best: We really liked the Lagoon area off of the screened in patio and the beds were super comfortable. Also this Resort is very quiet and relaxing.
Liked least: This unit is an upstairs unit and the 2nd bedroom is a loft which requires stairs to access. Also this unit is at least a 5 minute walk to the beach, which was fine with our group but could be an issue for people with disabilities.
