I have been vacationing at this resort for the last 17 plus years and i've never been disappointed.. It's my favorite vacation spot, feels like home. It's very close to the beach, and the staff are always friendly and accomodating..Renting is easy, no deposit to put down. Plenty of eating places close by...love this place..

Personally not picky on rooms as long as there is somewhere nice to sleep, I never spend much time in room other than to sleep. Stayed in 3319 was real nice and met the bill. Personally like most of the rules and only old people being around, even though it's my age group don't care for the drunk college kids... More

We have been coming to Ocean and Racquet for the past ten years, sometimes twice a year and it is hands down my favorite vacation spot! I have brought many families to share our fun and they all feel the same! Beautiful property just steps from the beach, always clean and you never feel overcrowded! Great condos....you can always find... More

Renting was easy - you could view the photos online. We stayed in a unit that was renovated with 2 bedrooms. It's a very close walk to the beach (2 minutes) and the ocean. They were painting the outside of the buildings while we were there and have redone the parking lot. There are 2 pools here (not busy at... More

This is a beachfront property and the Atlantic Ocean is just steps away. Hurricane Joaquin was in the Atlantic while we were visiting but we did not let... More

We rented a condo through Vacation Pros Rental. It was like arriving at a slum. There was a hole in the ceiling above the stove with pieces and parts of drywall / plaster hanging down. The dinner plates and the coffee cups were filthy. The condo smelled like mold, and there were auto air fresheners placed in the air vents... More

Hi Beth: This is so embarrassing and I feel so terrible that your vacation was cut short by this company. As manager of the onsite office, I just hate that Vacation Rental Pros sent you to a unit that was far from being ready to rent. My staff is in the onsite office and we manage roughly 140 of the...

Our second visit to Ocean & Racquet in two years. Affordable family vacation with awesome amenities. We loved our well stocked condo we rented from VRBO. Beautiful beach! Places we would visit again in the area - Lighthouse, Fort Castillo, Pirate Musuem, & Harry's in St. Augustine. St.Augustine Beach - Seafood Kitchen, Oasis, Coneheads, Fiesta Mini Golf, and Surf Station... More

Okay, so some of the Units are in need of updating- That's reflected in the price, my friends. The Units that have been updated and/or have a better location are priced higher- Makes sense, right? I have to chuckle at the limited reviews expressing surprise at the condition who don't seem to understand the notion of "you get what you... More
