Spanish Trace condo description

Our beautiful condo is located in Spanish Trace Ocean Club Condominiums, a gated community on Anastasia Island, directly on St. Augustine Beach. You'll have views of the ocean from every room.

The beach is a few steps away, with its beautiful sugar sand for building sandcastles or just laying around and watching the surf roll in. Enjoy falling asleep to the sound of the ocean? This is the place for you.

There is an extra-large beautiful pool, with plenty of lounge chairs, tables, and umbrellas. There are some great restaurants within walking distance, including the World Famous Oasis. We also now have WiFi for your convenience, if you want to keep in touch with the real world, instead of staying totally in paradise!

We often run last-minute 'specials' and have great rates for the spring and fall. Don't forget to check us out regularly for the latest rates.

We are only: 50 miles to Daytona Beach, 100 miles to Orlando, and 40 miles to Jacksonville

Enjoy the amusement parks with the kids during the day but come back to the relaxation that St. Augustine has to offer, away from the rat race.

In St. Augustine there are unlimited activities and things to do. Enjoy the Alligator Farm, Ripley's Believe It or Not, The Ponce de Leon Fountain of Youth, Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine Old Jail, Potter's Wax Museum, and Fort Matanzas. Tour the Hotel Ponce de Leon, a National Historic Landmark famous for its Tiffany windows, ornate murals, and Spanish-Renaissance architecture, which is now the home of Flagler College.

Take a tour of the San Sebastian Winery, the Lightner Museum, and St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum. Take a day or evening to go deep-sea fishing, enjoy a scenic cruise, or brave the ghost tours.

Take a horse-carriage ride or ride the trolley around the beautiful downtown area.

World Golf Village is only minutes to the north with its two beautiful golf courses – The King and the Bear and the Slammer and the Squire. It is also home to the World Golf Hall of Fame, an IMAX movie theater, and official PGA Tour stop shop.

Marineland is only minutes to the south and is the oldest oceanarium. Make sure you plan on swimming with the dolphins.

St. George Street and Historic Downtown have some of the best shopping in St. Augustine. St. George Street is a three-block foot-traffic only street downtown, which has hundreds of unique shops and fabulous cuisine.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Dave and I have been married 38 years. We were both born and raised in Michigan. Lucky for Dave, he is retired. I continue to work as a court reporter in Michigan, because I just absolutely love my job. One of our favorite things to do is travel and play golf.

                      Why the Owner Chose Spanish Trace:
                      We are totally in love with St. Augustine. We first came here in 1993 with two other couples. We were going to the Daytona 500 and decided to stay in St. Augustine, away from the rat race. The town just fit like a glove for our personalities. We have stayed here every winter, for at least part of it, ever since. We decided to purchase our condo in 2008 because the timing was right. We have not regreted one minute of it. It is easy enough for us to hop in the car, drive 20 hours, and we are there. Of course, once you hit town, you just feel like you are on vacation every minute of every day. We are only 1 1/2 hours from Orlando, where you can get involved in all the theme parks, but yet close enough to drive home at night to the beautiful sound of the ocean.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We enjoy the golf courses around the area. There are plenty to choose from. Since we are right on the beach, it's easy enough to just take a stroll on the beach for a cup of coffee or glass of wine at a few of the local restaurants and bars. We have met the most fabulous people while spending time here. The kids at Flagler College are some of the most friendly we have ever met, as well as those we have met on the golf course. There is everything and nothing to do here. You can completely relax for the day at the condo and enjoy the sounds of the beach, or you can go downtown and find something you've never done before. There's always something happening, if you want to be part of it.
