Those who have not visited the Silver Sands St Augustine in a while are in for a pleasant surprise on your return. Major renovations have completely redefined the property. Old dark and dated rooms are now clean, bright and spacious suites. Convection cooking surfaces, microwaves and large refrigerators are in each room with BBQ grills on site, so with some advance planning light meals could be prepared and enjoyed in suite. Large flat screen TV’s in each suite provide entertainment via Netflix and cable services. WiFi is available for the connected traveler as well. Management provides many personal touches designed to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
A two level patio provides ample space and seating for outdoor dining or just sitting and enjoying the balmy sea breeze. The beach is so close you can hear the waves anytime you are outside. A short walk through the dunes brings you to the beach. Keep an eye out for Bernice the cranky tortoise guardian of the dunes. My stay over the Memorial Day weekend saw ample space on the beach except at high tide when the water forced beach goers to share a narrow strip of sand. A dusk walk on the beach was rewarded with a surprise view to a satellite launch out of Cape Canaveral. Keep an eye on the launch schedule, http://www.spacecoastlaunches.com/#schedule to see if you will be able to witness a truly remarkable event during your stay.
All the charm of St Augustine is a few minutes away by car and offers entertainment and dining options should you feel like leaving the Silver Sands. A quick internet search will provide a schedule of coming events. My particular favorite is the Greek Festival. For a quiet out of the way and stress free family destination, I can think of no better place than Silver Sands St Augustine. Management makes everyone feel welcome and goes well above and beyond to make each stay your best stay. I look forward to my next getaway at Silver Sands.

If you are looking for a nice quiet place walking distance from a beautiful beach. Clean cool rooms with real broadband internet access (50mb+). Outstanding friendly service. This IS the spot for you. I'm looking forward to another visit soon.

I had a wonderful, peaceful relaxing stay at Siliver sands around a year and a half ago. Stayed in the front cottage, lots of space & the beach is beyond gorgeous! There's so much to do locally plus great restaurants - not enough time to do it all in one visit!

Karen,

Thanks for your review and we look forward to your return to the new, Silver Sands, St. Augustine. We just reopened today after complete renovations and now have 2, 1 bedroom suites, 2 cottages and 1 studio suite. We planted many large palms and the landscaping is all new with new patios, beach path and a court yard. It is still a natural, relaxing setting for a real getaway.

Hope to see you soon!

Betty
Manager, The Silver Sands, St. Augustine
