Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 3 sleeps
About Luke Byrne
We just love hunting for great mid century and shabby chic furniture and stuff to put into our house and the two condos we own at the beach. Each piece has a story which is great fun.The renovation side comes from watching too many episodes of HGTV house hunters.We live in a small town on a golf course about 40 miles from the beach and get over to the beach every chance we can. We really work hard to make sure folks have a good time at the beach.
Luke Byrne purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Luke Byrne chose Saint Augustine
We bought the unit after the property market collapse and volunteered with other owners to turn the Ocean Village Club from a tired old beach complex to the best on the beach and recipient of many awards, including condo complex of the year for 2014 for the entire state.Truly rewarding to see the result. Warm family friendly environment where people say hello when they pass you in the complex.
What makes this Condo unique
The condo is decorated with a funky taste that makes you feel like you are at the beach. You can rent bikes at the Club entrance which are great for beach riding, restaurant runs, errands etc.

Out of the cold
My wife and I booked this vacation rental through VRBO and found the condo be exactly as advertised. It was the perfect size for the 2 of us and our small dog.
The location of Ocean Village is close to all amenities and our unit, while being farthest from the beach, was only a 5 minute walk.
Luke answered any questions we had promptly, resolving all questions to our complete satisfaction.
The complex itself is very pet friendly as is the beach. There are many group activities and we met many like minded people.
We were able to take our dog with us to several wonderful restaurants in the area including one right across the street.
St. Augustine is a beautiful city with much to offer and is only a short drive from Ocean Village.
All in all, we will return in the future..thanks Luke
Hey John...so glad you enjoyed the visit. Come back soon. All the best Luke
This "Funky 50's" condo is just the cutest condo and I am so glad we chose it. When we arrived it was as pictured online, decorated with great taste and that "beachy" feel and exceptionally clean. There was a dryer problem and I contacted the owner Luke and he had it fixed immediately. Short walk to the 2 pools and the ocean. And there were beach chairs and bikes available. Couldn't have picked a better place to stay in St Augustine. Will definitely be back!
Thanks so much for the great review. We really hope you decide to come this way again.
Cute, Beachy Condo
I loved this property! Small, but so cozy with a wonderful beachy feel. Close to the beach, restaurants, with plenty of places to shop nearby. About 10 minutes from almost all the local tourist attractions. A wonderful place to stay!
Enjoy St. Augustine
The condo had everything that you need for the making of a great vacation.
We planned on using the trip to relax on the beach in the morning and go in to old Town St. Augustine for the afternoon and evening. The long walk to the beach was made very easy with the rollable cart that was provided by the owner. There are two nice pools in the complex. The balcony was nice to sit on while drinking morning coffee even though it was facing the road instead of the beach. It took about 20 minutes to drive into old town.
My summary would be that this condo works well for vacationers that need a comfortable place to stay for exploring the town.
A few things to consider;
.....No elevator makes it difficult with luggage, groceries and beach items.
.....No view of beach
.....long walk through the complex to get to the beach
A must do while visiting St. Augustine is the sunset boat tour with Florida Water Tours.
Enjoyed our Stay
Unit was exactly as pictured and expected.
Thanks so much...come back soon!
Cozy Condo for 2
The complex is nicely maintained. The pools are very nice! The condo is small, but was a perfect fit for me, my husband, and pup. It is very cutely decorated! You can tell the owner takes pride in his rental. He put in a new fridge during our stay. I'm sure he will continue to update the condo. It is on the third floor - no elevators, but we didn't mind the stairs. It is over off of A1A but the traffic noises are minimal. To get to the beach we drove to the visitor parking and made the haul down to the beach. We would stay again, but if you are looking for something fancy this is not the place for you
