Amazing Value and much more comfortable than a condo. Two blocks to the beach! You are just steps away out the front door to Crescent Beach and spectacular sunrises, or go out the back door to the Intracoastal waterway and watch the beautiful sunsets along the Matanzas River. There's really no point in driving to the beach since it is so close, but if you insist you can not only drive TO the beach, you can actually drive ON the beach! The public boat ramp is 1/4 of a mile away if you are a boat or jet ski enthusiast.
The cottage is two bedroom single family home (not a condo) and is completely furnished right down to the white picket fence. It is ideal for families or for couples who like more space. We're stocked with everything you'll need including linens & towels, BBQ grill, and even beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys for the kids.
Conveniently located on serene Crescent Beach, you are only a few minutes from the downtown St. Augustine. Local attractions include: Castillo de San Marcos, Fort Matanzaz, The Alligator Farm, The Original Ripleys Believe it or not Museum, Potters Wax Museum, The 3D Theatre, Marineland, Outlet Malls, Ghost Walks, Trolley Tours, Horse drawn Carriage rides, Golf, The World Golf Village, Sport and Surf Fishing, Sailing, Windsurfing, Parasailing, and countless gourmet restaurants.

About the owner: Hi, we’re Becki and Rick. We bought the Cottage about 5 years ago as our beach get-away and couldn’t be happier. We stay at the Cottage a lot ourselves and rent it out when we can. We are seasoned travelers and we make sure that you’ll have everything you need for a great stay. Over the years we’ve noticed that people take very good care of our place to the point where we no longer require a damage deposit, and we don’t charge a cleaning fee either! Everyone knows that the place will be cleaned between visitors so why isn’t it part of the price? We see it as a sneaky way to advertise a lower rate then jack it up with other charges. We don’t play that game. A rental is a simple transaction between adults where a little courtesy and respect goes a long way
Why the Owner Chose Crescent Beach: The Cottage itself was built in the 50’s and added on to over the years giving it a unique charm and feel. No one has ever been disappointed and folks almost universally say that it looks even better in person than the photographs show. Everyone remarks that it’s bigger on the inside than the outside.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: What we like best about the cottage is its ‘homey and beachy’ feel. When we want to get away we want to feel like we’re on vacation and the Cottage gives us that. Our idea of being at the beach doesn’t involve being in an apartment building (sorry,,, condo). The Cottage is part of a residential neighborhood not a ‘complex’ and most of the neighbors are residents. We’re located in one of the last stretches along the beach that isn’t overbuilt and full of chain stores. In fact, the beach highway, A1A is only two lanes wide. Crescent Beach Park is across the street and you’ll find mostly Florida tags on the cars; this is where the locals come. The point is that if you want to be at the center of the tourist hubbub there are hundreds of other places up the road for you to stay in, but if you want a more intimate beach experience, our Cottage has a lot to offer.
