On the patio of Barefoot Trace 103, our ground-floor condo on the shores of St. Augustine Beach, you are just steps from the ocean and right beside the lovely dunes. Enjoy beachfront living and great views at this comfy, spacious, pristine resort condo!<br/><br/>Barefoot Trace 103 sleeps 7 very comfortably in 2 bedrooms plus the queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room. (The lucky pair getting the sleeper sofa have front-row seats to the sunrise -- should they choose to leave the drapes open -- not to mention dibs on the huge flat-screen TV. You may just have to let the kids "sleep over" in here one night for all the perks!) Th...ere are 2 full bathrooms as well, including the master bath with a walk-in shower featuring safety rails and plenty of space. If anyone in your group has accessibility issues, you'll find Barefoot Trace 103 very easy to get around in. No stairs, no tub walls, and thoughtful supports where you need them.<br/><br/>The room you'll probably spend most of your time in is the long, sunlight-filled living area. Sliding-glass doors lead in here from the oceanfront patio, and you're immediately confronted with a choice: sink into the plush recliner for a quick nap, stretch out on the leather couch and watch a movie or game on the big TV with DVD player, or settle at the dining table for a quick game of cards? (Vacation choices are so much fun!) Of course, the kids have already sunk into the big beanbag chair with a shout of triumph and will soon be engrossed in Legos or Polly Pockets.<br/><br/>There's room for everyone in the open design of Barefoot Trace 103's living and dining area. You'll find that you take most of your meals out to the patio to enjoy the fabulous weather and view, freeing up the dining table for jigsaws, cards, board games, and computers (you have free WiFi here). And the kitchen is open to the living and dining areas too, giving you ocean views even as you work. (And when we say "work," what we mean is, "Pour out frosty beverages and slide tasty snacks onto a plate before sitting down to enjoy your free time.") <br/><br/>Whether you're a gourmet chef or a reluctant cook, you'll love what you find in the kitchen at Barefoot Trace 103. It's fully stocked with cookware, dishes, glasses, utensils, gadgets, and appliances large and small. No hunting around for a colander or running out to the store to buy a corkscrew when you stay here! You can prepare anything from microwave popcorn to Thanksgiving dinner at this condo, and all you need bring is the food!<br/><br/>The best part about the kitchen is that tucked into a sunny alcove near the washer and dryer is a breakfast nook. This is a cheery, private place to enjoy some downtime away from the group, and works very well when small children need to settle down a bit before their nap or bedtime. It's also the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee and a nice chat, write postcards, or get a little work done. <br/><br/>When it's time to retire to bed, everyone in the group will be delighted with the sleeping arrangements. The large, pleasant guest room sleeps 3 in a queen-sized bed and a twin. There's a roomy dresser and mirror here, a comfy chair, and big windows that can be made very dark for sleeping. The guest bedroom shares the second bathroom with the living area, and you'll find both a shower and tub option here. <br/><br/>And the piece de resistance is the master suite. Featuring windows in 2 directions, both with ocean views (Barefoot Trace 103 is a corner unit), it contains an ultra-luxurious king-sized bed, large private TV, and a cozy reading chair. The en-suite bath with walk-in shower is yours and yours alone, and there's so much space here!<br/><br/>Barefoot Trace 103 is part of a lovely resort complex with a big oceanfront swimming pool, gameroom, fitness center, tennis court, and more. Play pool here, try your hand at shuffleboard (it's surprisingly addictive!), and enjoy the balmy Florida weather on the sun shelf around the swimming pool. Or stroll right down to St. Augustine Beach via our private boardwalk over the lush natural dunes.
Additional amenities include: biking, boating, beach, fishing, washer / dryer.Read more

We loved Barefoot Trace and this perfect vacation location. We stayed as a family vacation w/our kids. The condo was very nice, roomy and easy to access. We loved the view, and having the pool and beach just a step out. The kids loved having tennis, shuffleboard and the pool room as an alternative when they needed a break from the beach. The easy access to excellent dining was a huge plus; loved Saltwater Cowboys & Oasis! The only suggestion for travel would be to bring a wi fi card as there is no access in this unit. Also, bring beach towels and chairs. We will definitely be back to Barefoot Trace :-)

We have made some suggestions for improvements in the property's general conditions to Vacation Pros in an e-mail. They were supposed to come and discuss them with us, but did not do so. We intended them to be helpful considerations to keep the property updated and competitive, not criticisms.
very good view of the ocean

A really great view close to the ocean. Nice pool and close to everything we wanted to do. Property Manger (Arcadio) was fantastic and really went above and beyond to solve WI FI issue.
Great place, great location
