Hubby and I (and the Little Man) are headed to St. Augustine, FL for a long weekend to celebrate our birthdays. I found this motel on the beach, the Vilano Beach Motel, but also known as Magic Beach Motel.
It’s described as “light kitsch with pink flamingos and tropical decor” by the guide book I bought. The motel was built in the 1950s and has ocean views and murals painted in the rooms.
The place isn’t fancy, but it’s got a unique vibe. Their website is what sold me, with its 50s beach music, postcards graphics and views of the ocean. I’m so excited to stay here. I love that old Florida kind of gaudiness- it just makes me laugh. Let’s just hope “kitschy” isn’t code for ‘crap hole’. Stay tuned…
