The pictures don't do this spacious condo justice. The only downside to the trip was weather. We will definitely book again next year. VRP exceeded our expectations. We arrived at 10pm to check in. Their maintenance staff waited on the phone and guided me through their entire check in process after hours.

The condo was very nice, beautifully decorated, and wonderful view of the sunrise over the water every morning! Getting out to the beach we had to go out the front gate on the street side when there was a locked gate more near the beach. It would have been nice to have that available to us. The jacuzzi wasn't working was warm, but only one small jet was partially working and that was disappointing since I was there during the fall. Otherwise, the location was great, getting in and out was easy and there was plenty of parking in the condo gate with a public parking lot right next door. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing time for me and my family!

We were visiting Jacksonville for our son's wedding. This condo had everything we needed. The location was good, the view of the ocean was spectacular. It was close to everything. It was roomy enough for 6 people and each having their own restroom to get ready for the wedding was a plus. We would rent this again.
We love this place

Great condo with fantastic views and location. This was our 4th time staying in this unit. My only complaint is they don't stock cleaning supplies so you can keep the unit clean throughout the week. They do state this when you agree to rent the unit.
One suggestion is to add another king size bed in one of the other bedrooms.

The condo was very spacious. Large Family room making it easy to accomodate our large family :)
The swipe card access requirement was a bit of an inconvenience. The push code access wasn't working so you always had to have a swipe card in order to park, access beach and/or access elevator. We only had 2 so with a large family this was an inconvenience.
The blender wasn't working. We eat smoothies alot so this was also disappointing.
The condo was very clean :) We loved the balcony. Master bedroom mattress was extremely comfortable--a big plus in my book!
ALWAYS A GREAT PROPERTY AND LOCATION!

This was our 3rd stay at Oceania - it is the perfect property and location to kick back and relax or explore Jacksonville.
Just a few minutes away from Atlantic Beach Town Center, lots of great places to eat and miles of non-commercialized beaches to walk.
The St. Johns Town Center is close also.
No matter what you're wanting to do - Oceania is a great location to set up as your base camp or just hang out on the balcony to watch the ocean waves.
Thank you for another great stay!!

Oceania - Jacksonville Beach review
Reviewed on Thursday, September 4, 2014
The unit did look like the description and pictures, but we were disappointed with the how bare the unit was. We understood we would need to buy items like toilet paper, paper towels, etc but there wasn't even enough bath towels for each of us & not a single wash cloth or even 1 dish towel. Pillows were disgusting and no mattress pads on beds. Sliding doors barely worked & we were afraid they would break each time we opened them. It said it slept 8 but nobody could sleep on hide-a-bed because it is in the living room w/o any blinds so the morning sun beams in at sunrise; plus couch is not comfortable. Some upgrades and this would be a great place!

Beautiful spacious condo with amazing view from balcony. We were very happy with everything except one day it decided to rain all day so we rented a movie and planned to watch it in the living room but the dvd player did not work in there. Maintenance had to come in several times through out the week to work on sprinkler system issue. We were told they would be by 1-day(Monday) for up to 3 hours which ended up being 4 days coming in at different times that was really no problem and they were very nice but they also had to take the curtains partially down in the master bedroom leaving them like that the rest of the week. It was just inconvenient since we only were ther that 1-week. Other than that it really was perfect and had everything we needed.

Our family of five stayed at the condo while visiting family in the Jacksonville area. We've been renting on the Atlantic coast for many years and really enjoyed this rental. The view is wonderful. We enjoyed Oceania's pool and beach access. Our only complaints were the aging dishwasher and some plumbing issues in the master bath, including a broken water spigot in the master tub. We would return to this property or recommend it to a friend. Many businesses and restaurants are within a one- to two-mile walk.

Condo was very nice and spacious. The daily maintaince associate was top notch. He was friendly and always working on the common areas. The outside lawn and lobby were very welcoming. Property manager was helpful and quick to replace a faulty coffee maker. The decor and layout of condo was just lovely. The color and furnishings were beach themed. The beach access was well done and we were pleased to have a large area to shower off after beach activities. I would recommend the kitchen be inventoried for missing items that should be replaced to optimize this great kitchen area. Another improvement could be to identify a better way to secure the sliding doors in the living area. This property is perfect for a larger family who love to be together, but still like to have their own space when needed.

Great security need a key to leave and enter the gates and the pool. The only negative was driving 10 miles for the keys and taking them back . When we arrived they had not put the keys in the lockbox as per the instructions they gave me. Luckily the office was still open when we arrived otherwise it could have been a problem. Would love to stay there again should we ever go back to Jacksonville.

there was a feeling of lightness and space. The colors flow from room to room, which in any decor, always lends itself to a feeling of peace. Then you turn a corner and are greeted by the ocean view filling the living room/dining/kitchen area.
The floor we were on was perfect for pictures from the patio. Specifically the sunrise pictures my husband took every single morning.
My husband & I would sit on the patio for hours just enjoying the view and enjoying the peace it gave us to watch the ocean.
You can lay out on the patio if you'd rather start your tan without others viewing you. Full sun stays on parts of the patio until about 2:oo pm..
The pool was private and clean and there were many times it was not used by others.
Other guests had left some items like spices, coffee, and extra soaps and we returned the favor by leaving similiar dry goods for others. The beach is a white sand beach that is very soft. Again, it was not very crowded at all.
We enjoyed our stay very much.

When we arrived the condo appeared very clean. but after removing our shoes it was thick with sand on the floor. I spent the week sweeping and still didnt get it all up. The kitchen is not very well equipped, we had to ask for dinner knives, glasses and wine glasses. There was a very limited amount of cookware.
When we read the details of the condo we were led to believe the kitchen was better equipped. In fact, the brief says, you could cook up a feast. I disagree with that statement. There were 2 blunt knives, a tiny chopping board and no collander. On the double and king bed there were feather mattress toppers, which only just masked the fact the beds were ancient. Also a lot of people are allergic to feathers, no mention of this was made in the brief. We would stay there again but only if these things were rectified. The view is faboulous, the pool and gym lovely.
