Overview

About the property

Newly Renovated Spacious 2 Bedroom 2 Bath With Views Of The Ocean From Balcony

When you stay at Spanish Trace 232, not only are you just yards from St. Augustine Beach, but you can also stop for a swim in a large pool during your short walk to the beach’s sugary white sands. That’s right: Both a spectacular pool and one of Florida’s best beaches—and so much more!—are just steps away.

Spanish Trace 232 is part of a beautifully maintained gated community. In addition to the centrally located pool, you’ll be able to enjoy the complex’s lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, and horseshoe pits—not to mention the sound of lapping waves and crisp ocean breezes rustling through the palm trees as you relax on the balcony just off the unit’s living room.

Like the rest of Spanish Trace 232, the living area was designed with comfort, convenience, and casual elegance in mind. There’s enough room for the whole family to sink into the plush couches and chairs and watch a movie on the large-screen HDTV with DVD player and surround-sound stereo system. You can unfold the sofa into a bed for 2, enabling up to 8 people to spend the night.

Just beyond the sitting area is our dining table, with a nice view of the courtyard and plenty of space. There’s also a breakfast table in the kitchen--and you'll find yourself taking many meals outdoors to the patio anyway!--so feel free to devote one of the tables to games, computers (you have free wireless Internet at Spanish Trace 232), or the kids' projects. No vacation is complete without a family night, so break out the Monopoly, the jigsaw puzzles, and the coloring books, and have a fun evening in!

Snacks and drinks are close at hand in our fully appointed kitchen. All you add is groceries: we've got all the cookware, dishes, and utensils you could ask for to prepare anything from a pitcher of frosty blender drinks to a three-course feast. The cool tiled floors and gleaming appliances make our kitchen appealing even to those who prefer making reservations to making dinner.

While the living and dining area is open and connected (so convenient when keeping an eye on the little ones), the bedrooms at Spanish Trace 232 offer maximum privacy and quiet. The master bedroom includes an ultra-luxurious king-size bed, a large HDTV, soft carpeting, plenty of storage space, and a long window to let in the refreshing morning breeze and plenty of sunshine. The en-suite bathroom has both a tub and a shower option. Beautifully decorated and spacious, the master suite is a haven within a haven.

The 2nd bedroom offers 2 full beds Sleeps 2 each for a total of 4 and HDTV, and a cheerful nautical decor. The 2nd full bathroom is convenient to this room as well as to the living area. And remember, all the linens, pillows, and towels you’ll need for Spanish Trace 232 are provided for you. Pack light; should you need to do laundry while you’re here, there’s a laundry room next door to the condo.

As relaxing as Spanish Trace 232’s rooms are, you didn’t come here to stay indoors. The soft sand of St. Augustine Beach is perfect for strolling along, building sandcastles, and gathering shells. Plan to rise early one morning while you're here and treat yourself to a view of the sun rising over the Atlantic—it’s a spectacular sight.

You’re also just a short drive away from restaurants, shops, Marineland, the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park, and historic St. Augustine itself, the nation’s oldest city. If you golf, bring your clubs and head to World Golf Village; if you don’t golf, you’ll still enjoy the nearby miniature golf course. Even the Orlando theme parks are only a day trip away.

Conveniently located, beautifully furnished, and impeccably maintained, Spanish Trace 232 is a wonderful base of operations for your next vacation. So go ahead and book your stay today.

About Gerry Browne

My wife and I live in New York in Westchester County just north of New York City. I originally came from Ireland and settled in NY back in the 1980s. My wife is from Queens NY and we have been married for 20 yeas and have 2 teenage children, Girl and Boy. We love St. Augustine and bought this condo for family vacations.

Gerry Browne purchased this condo in 2015

Why Gerry Browne chose St Augustine

My wife and I fell in love with St. Augustine about 7 years ago after visiting friends who moved here from New York. We just cant get enough of it so we bought this condo and visit several times a year from New York. We stayed at at least 10 different places along Saint Augustine Beach and Butler Beach before discovering this gem. Everyone who experiences it agrees.

What makes this condo unique

The most desirable benefit to me about this complex is that its near everything yet quiet and relaxing. Its so close to the beach that walking from condo to ocean takes less than 1 minute. The swimming pool is the nicest Ive seen for a small complex.

Amazing beachfront condo! (stayed 7/7 - 7/15)

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had the most amazing time! The condo was exceptionally clean and well equipped with everything we could possibly need to make our stay the very most enjoyable. All of the beds were very comfortable, the tv's were easy for my kiddos to watch Netflix during down time or before bed. The kitchen was perfect and had everything we needed. The balcony view was wonderful. Having the shower directly when you walk in the door was perfect for our kiddos to hop right into the shower after a long day on the beach. Probably what helped the most was the beach tent, wagon, chairs and umbrellas - we weren't expecting those things to be there but they made a WORLD OF DIFFERENCE for us, and we were extremely grateful for those added bonus items! We made good use of the laundry facility which is conveniently close to the condo unit. We didn't use the pool more than twice while we were there because my kids enjoyed the ocean so much but it is quite large and clean. The condo itself is in a great location, plenty of great places to eat close by and just a short drive to Old Town St. Augustine (we went there several evenings during our stay, there is so much to do and see there and the views around the old fort are breathtaking at sunset, even my 7 and 9 year old were not bored) There's a fun mini-golf course nearby if you have young kids with you. We ate out every night and never had a bad meal, Sunset Grill, Salt Life, Mango Mango's, Oasis are all great options close by and then even more great options in Old Town. There's a Walgreens in walking distance and 2 grocery stores very close as well. There's so much to do in that area that we didn't have enough time to do it all. We've already talked about trying to do 2 weeks next time, and we will of course want to stay at the same condo again since we absolutely LOVED IT! We did add a day to the start of our vacation, we realized we had the extra time and when we checked the availability that day was open. When we contacted the owner to add a day they were wonderful! Thank you Gerry for letting us book your condo and all the wonderful things that made our stay easy and more comfortable, we hope to do this again!

Wonderful place! Beautiful property! Very nice people!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful home away from home! We had the most wonderful time! We enjoyed the beach, downtown St. Augustine, Sea World, the Alligator Farm, and so many great restaurants! Our two year old had such a great time! Your place was fully stocked with every amenity we could have needed. Having an upstairs was such a plus for us with a toddler! Thank you for providing coolers, beach chairs, and sun umbrellas.

The weather was sunny but not incredibly warm so a heated pool would have been nice. It was FREEZING. haha.

All in all, we had such a great time and will for sure be returning!! Thank you again!!

Anything you could ever want in St augustine

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this establishment march 14-17 and I took my grandparents and cousin with me on a short spring break trip. When I tell you this place exceeded every expectation I truly mean it! The rooms were beautiful and comfortable sizes. The outside seating area was perfect to watch the sunrise and the kitchen was perfectly spaced for breakfast and dinner cooking. My grandfather is already asking me when we are going back. The area is calm and peaceful. The neighbors are friendly and welcoming. Old town of st augustine is about 17 min away and I was in awe with how beuatiful the city around us was. The beach had the softest sand and the house is taken care of and super modern. I would recommend this condo in a heartbeat!

Great place to stay -- Good Choice

  • 5 of 5

We chose this place because of the many good reviews and it lived up to every expectation. It was obvious a lot of thought was focused on comfort. Upon arrival the condo was extremely clean and is well appointed. The condo is located a couple of blocks from A1A so it felt more secluded and quiet. It is also gated for security.

The beds were very comfortable. Two bedrooms are upstairs: master and guest. There is a shared bathroom between the two with a bathtub/shower. There is also a downstairs bathroom with a very nice shower.

For the beach, many items were thoughtfully provided. (4 beach chairs, umbrella, beach wagon to load the items, etc).

We enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the near future.

Beautiful place and view!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this unit! It had been updated and was very comfortable. Everything was there that was needed for the stay, including all kinds of beach stuff. The pool was great and the view from the patio was fabulous. Just a few steps to the pool and a few more steps to the beach. Bring your bathing suit, shorts, tee shirts, sandals, and toothbrush and you are ready for a great time!

Great Condo and Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with VRBO and everything was perfect! The condo was lovely and had everything we needed including some amenities we didn't expect. We could see the waves hitting the beach from the balcony while we had our morning coffee! Condo complex amenities were also very nice and well maintained. The communication from the owner was great - detailed and very helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
