Start your day watching the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean from the comfort of your balcony, cup of fresh-brewed coffee in hand. End your evening luxuriating on a king-size bed with the rhythmic murmur of the surf as a lullaby. And in between, swim in the pool, surf in the waves, play a game of tennis, collect shells and shark’s teeth—all within steps of your front door. That’s what a vacation at Barefoot Trace 204 has to offer.
The 2-bedroom condo is located in an oceanfront complex with 2 private walkways over the dunes to the sugary sands of St. Augustine Beach. Because the beach and the ocean are your backyard, you can come and go throughout the day, any time and as often as you please. If that’s not luxurious, we don’t know what is! And when you want a break from surf and sand, there’s plenty of enjoyment to be had within the Barefoot Trace complex itself.
The heated pool is a wonderful option should you find the ocean too cold or choppy for your liking, and after your swim you can laze on a poolside chaise, watching the leafy palm trees gently sway in the breeze. Or you could play on the tennis or shuffleboard courts, get a workout in the clubhouse’s well-equipped fitness room, and shoot some pool in the game room. Or you can relax in your private condo unit. With its ample, well-cushioned seating, plush carpet, and soft palette, the living room is a cocoon of air-conditioned comfort. Watch a movie on the TV with cable, post pictures of your day’s adventures on Facebook (Barefoot Trace 204 has free WiFi), sprawl out on the carpet to play with the kids, curl up with a stack of magazines: Now’s your chance to chill however you want. If cooking is a favorite way to relax, you’ll be delighted by how well equipped the kitchen is. Appliances, cookware, gadgets, tableware, plenty of counter space: The only thing you need to supply is the food and your culinary expertise. You can tuck into your feast at the dining table, which seats 6, or better yet, out on the balcony. Furnished with a patio table and chairs as well as a chaise, the balcony lets you savor your meal in full view of the ocean—you might even spy dolphins bobbing in the surf or pelicans dive-bombing for their own snack.
Once you’re ready to call it a night (after one last dip in the pool, perhaps, or a moonlit stroll on the beach), you’ll find the master bedroom the perfect sanctuary. Its king-size bed is so sumptuous, you might fall asleep the moment you stretch out under the sheets. Then again, you might want to prop yourself up against the pillows to watch your favorite late-night show on the HDTV with DVD player, read a book, or gaze out the window at the stars twinkling above the ocean. The 2nd bedroom, with 2 twin beds, is perfect for the kids. And if you have additional guests, the living room sofa converts into a queen-size bed.
Because Barefoot Trace 204 has 2 full bathrooms—one for each bedroom—everyone will be able to get ready to start the day in record time. Plenty of clean towels and extra bedding will be waiting, and you’ll find the beds made up (and beckoning you for a nap!) when you arrive. Among the condo’s other conveniences are the private washer and dryer; not only can you pack light, but you might even return home with a suitcase full of clean clothing! The condo’s greatest amenity of all, however, is its location.
Not only is it just the shortest of walks to the beach, but it’s also conveniently close to restaurants, shops, golf courses, Marineland, historic St. Augustine, Moses Creek Conservation Area...You can even take a day trip to the Orlando theme parks. When you stay at Barefoot Trace 204, you can enjoy all the best that Florida has to offer. So make your reservation and start planning how you’re going to make the most of your stay.+ More
