Everything You Need at The Ocean Gallery St. Augustine Resort

A perfect vacation often starts with high-quality accommodations. The kind offers a stress-free, relaxing time with an actual “home away from home” feel. The best St. Augustine rentals can only make your St. Augustine vacation even more exciting and memorable.

You’ll find those high qualities at The Ocean Gallery Resort, a popular St. Augustine resort located just five miles from the historic downtown area of the oldest city in the U.S. There is plenty to love about these St. Augustine vacation rentals from the white sand beach to the recently renovated pools.

The Ocean Gallery Resort was constructed from 1983 to 1988 and has been continuously updated ever since. It offers 200 rental condos and 21 single-residency homes, from oceanfront Vistas to Villages that are just a short walk from the beach. About half of the units at this resort are for rent, with the others owned and lovingly cared for. This gated community was once featured in Ladies Home Journal

Let’s take a closer look at all you can enjoy when you become a pampered guest at The Ocean Gallery Resort.

Ocean Gallery Resort Amenities

The best vacation accommodations are always more than simply a place to drop off your luggage. You can expect to find many reasons why vacationers return to this spectacular St. Augustine resort year after year.


You’ll never tire of the white sugar sands and turquoise waters of the St. Augustine beaches, but that doesn’t mean you’re not inclined to spend a day poolside. There’s a lot to be said about lounging beside a pool with a book and a drink- just steps from the door of your rental. The Ocean Gallery Resort gives you that option. 

Perhaps the ocean water is a bit chilly. Maybe you’re a bit nervous about there not being any lifeguards at the beach. Maybe the water is a bit rough on the day you were planning for a swim, or it could simply be a matter of spending some quiet downtime at your home away from home.

Whatever your reason, you’ll love the safe alternative to the waves by taking a dip into one of our sparkling clean pools. All of our pools are consistently well-maintained, but recent renovations also make them even more attractive to guests.

In addition to four individual pools, our St. Augustine vacation rentals allow access to the heated community pool.

Resort Recreation & Fitness

Even gym rats take a vacation, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your exercise regimen.

The Ocean Gallery Resort has an extensive fitness center with everything you need to keep up your workouts. The center has ellipticals, treadmills, stationary bikes, and free weights.

After a demanding workout, hit one of our two dry and steam combination saunas for the perfect finish. Saunas are also a great complement to a dip in the ocean or the pool!

Resort Beach

With your beachside, or near beachside, accommodations, you have beach access to a private niche of one of Florida’s best beaches.

You won’t find the crowds you would typically find at a Florida public beach at this private oasis. You’re just a few steps away from the sea breezes, the soft white sand, and the clear waters the area is known for.

At your lodging, you’ll find complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas, so there’s no need to bring your own or find a rental company. There are even cruiser bikes, so hop on and ride along the shore—an excellent opportunity for some exercise and exquisite views.

Need any extra items? The Ocean Gallery Resort partners with local DRIFTERS, a beach and bike rental company, so if you need more beach toys, chairs, or other items, DRIFTERS will deliver these to you.

You can pack some snacks and drinks in a cooler for a time at the beach or simply take the short walk back to the resort if needed. Two boardwalks with attached gazebos lead to the section of the beach for Ocean Gallery Resort visitors.

Tennis Courts & Bocce Ball

Vacation is all about fun and games, and The Ocean Gallery Resort has the games the whole family can enjoy.

Playfully compete on our tennis and half basketball courts. Get the whole gang together for a game of bocce ball or racquetball. There are also shuffleboard and pickleball courts. Our courts are pristine; the four tennis courts are cushioned and feature plenty of lighting for late games.

New Kids Playground

It’s always a good idea to keep the kids entertained during vacation, and you won’t have far from these St. Augustine vacation rentals to give them a busy time at our new kids’ playground.

This new addition to the resort lets kids run, climb, crawl, slide, and swing until their hearts are content! Let them work up a good sweat before a dip in the pool or ocean, or get their last bits of energy out before a bath and bed.

Things to Bring & Pack

You will not have to worry about packing your beach chairs or umbrellas, as St. Augustine rentals at The Ocean Gallery Resort have these things waiting for you upon arrival. So, what will you need to pack to bring to your stay at this St. Augustine resort?

With a fully stocked kitchen, you can bring all of your favorite foods to cook! Pack non-perishable seasonings, oils, and other cooking essentials. You should also pack paper towels, napkins, toilet paper, and dishwasher detergent.

Units also come with a washer and dryer, so pack some laundry detergent. This means that you can pack a few fewer clothes, as you’ll have the ability to wash and re-wear some items as needed.

It would help if you also packed garbage bags—standard 13-gallon kitchen garbage bags would do. If you’re bringing along extra guests to use the sleeper sofa or sofas, it’s suggested to bring extra towels and bedding.

Unlike standard hotel rooms, you will not find tiny bottles of shampoo, mouthwash, etc., at The Ocean Gallery Resort units, so be sure to pack all necessary personal hygiene items.

Resort Room Amenities

With all of the room amenities available at The Ocean Gallery Resort, you might be tempted to eschew a day on the beach and spend extended time inside your one to four-bedroom vista, village, or home lodging.

In addition to fully stocked kitchens and washer/dryer, some amenity highlights include up to 55-inch flat-screen TVs, large bathrooms with walk-in showers, towels & linens, patios & patio furniture, and modern furnishings and décor.

With three tiers of rentals, furnishings and décor will vary. Depending on the rental, you might also enjoy such added luxuries as a fireplace in the living room, porch swing, enclosed patio, and private backyard. There’s never been a better time to visit the stunning city of St. Augustine. Contact The Ocean Gallery today so we can help you make it happen.
