Why not -- it's vacation, and there is no alarm clock!<br/><br/>The second bedroom contains a double and a twin bed, the perfect place for the kids or for one family if several are traveling together. There is even a special nook near the kitchen at our condo! This light and bright room contains a queen-sized trundle bed. It's off the laundry room, making it a great choice for small children, who can fall asleep easily to the white noise of the dryer. <br/><br/>As much as you will enjoy Barefoot Trace 309, the outdoors is even better than the indoors! A private walkway leads you over the dunes and down to Crescent Beach, one of the finest stretches of coastline in northeast Florida.

We liked Barefoot Trace condominium - location, beach, pool, view. Our unit 309 had a nice balcony, roomy bedrooms, and decent size living room and kitchen. We really enjoyed St. Augustine too. Unit 309 did have a few maintenance issues. The faucet in the kitchen leaked. The master batch tub did not drain properly (a typical shower left several inchs of standing water which then drained slowly). The second bedroom closet had a lot of clutter - stuff left there. The glass door on the master closet was cracked. The speakers in the living room TV seemed to be "blown" and were buzzy at higher volumns. The can opener would not work and we had to go buy one. And, the WiFi was mostly very slow, sometimes gone. I think this unit 309 has potential to be a very nice condo but needs some attention to detail.

The condo was in an excellent location. The ocean was fanastic. There is lots to do in the area within a 20 minute drive. Grocery shopping was within a 5 minute drive. The condo was tastefully decorated. Only concern was the lack of paper products when you paying that amount of money,I would think you should have products available for the duration of stay. Area quite but not many vacationers in the area while we were there. December 23 - 30, 2011
