Crescent Beach condo description

Perhaps the most popular unit on Crescent Beach, with only 17 vacant days in 2013. 2014 has been 100% booked from the Jan 1st through the beginning of August! Book early and book fast to get the BEST view on the beach! As 1 of only 2 end units in the complex closest to the beach, and with a total main floor remodel in 2013—this is a premiere condo unit you’ll want to rush to get!


Top three reasons this condo has some of the best occupancy rates on all of Crescent Beach:

1. BEST VIEWS:

That’s a bold claim, how can we make it? Well, no complex or home on Crescent Beach is closer to the ocean than the Coquina Condo. Your views here are unobstructed by tall grassy dunes or long wooden docks blocking the magnificent seascape out your window. In fact, you’re so close, you could throw a rock out the window and hit sand! Additionally, we are an upstairs end-unit and the view stretches for miles in both directions. Also, only the end units have an extra wall of windows in the living room and master bedroom, making for endless beach views. It’s not just poetic prose when we say you could forget you’re on land when you sleep at night; come experience laying down on the soft king bed and seeing nothing but ocean waves out your window, feeling the cool breezes, inhaling the salty ocean scents, and hearing only the methodic music of rolling waves out your windows, literally making you feel as though you are on your own personal yacht out at sea. In the morning make sure to get up early because you won’t want to miss a sunrise in this condo and if you don’t want to go out, the sunrise will come to you from the best seat in the house—a chaise lounge surrounded by two walls of windows, or lay in bed and watch your room turn orange from the glow of sunrise. A must-do during your stay is to schedule plenty of time on the chaise watching pelicans dive into the ocean, turtles poke their heads out of the sand dunes, dolphins jump in the waves, and boats lazily sailing by! In fact, some of your best pictures of the beach will be taken from the comfort of this soft chaise lounge and nobody will know you weren’t standing on the sand!


2. CLOSEST TO THE BEACH:

Local restrictions mandated condos built after the Coquina Condo Complex (our complex) build a certain distance away from the sand dunes. Thus, in other rentals what separates you from the very reason you’re renting here (the ocean), is a long boardwalk. Our “boardwalk” is seven steps off the pool deck! If you’re coming for the beach, there is no better complex to stay in to put you footsteps away from your true destination.

3. BEAUTIFUL BEACHY CHIC COTTAGE RETREAT:

The design of this condo was summoned by the seascape and ocean hues out your window bringing indoors the calming color palette of the beach. Beautiful detail work and accessories throughout force this unit to stand out, but not steal the real show happening out your expansive windows. In addition you will find everything you need to enjoy the indoors including a big screen TV w/ high definition cable service & DVR (so you can record your favorite shows and still make the best show-- watching the moon rise out of the ocean), DVD player, TV in the master suite and second bedroom and free private WIFI. All the comforts of home will tempt you to stay indoors in this beautifully designed and comfortably decorated condo, but we know, the ocean call is too loud to ignore.

**Total main floor recent renovation includes:

-New tile flooring that looks like hardwood laid in herringbone pattern
-Completely remodeled kitchen with custom made cabinets, including custom cabinetry over refrigerator, galley kitchen style so you have more room, new appliances, stunning quartz countertops that mirrors the look of the sand outside, and high-end glass tile backsplash
-Main floor bathroom totally renovated with new vanity and gorgeous tile shower with glass tile accents***

INFO ON COMPLEX:
Complex has: private tennis courts, basketball court, private pool & kiddie pool, a deck with ocean views on one end and intracoastal waterway views on the other where you can lounge or grill dinner!

INFO ON AREA & ACTIVITIES NEARBY:
This condo is nestled on one of the best kept secrets in the world-- Crescent Beach found on Anastasia Island! It is located 15 minutes away from the quaint historic city of St. Augustine. Among the hundreds of adventures available, here are a few we suggest:

-Watch for dolphin as you kayak on the Intracoastal Waterway
-Catch dinner from a chartered deep- sea fishing boat or rent your own pontoon boat and fish on the intracoastal waterway (we've never been without seeing dolphins)
-Play your best game of golf at the World Golf Hall of Fame
-Stroll the shopping lined streets or tour the many art galleries in historic St. Augustine
-Visit by trolley, foot, or car the historic museums, sites, and forts of St. Augustine and learn about our nation's oldest city
-Splurge at the outlet malls
-Watch alligators being fed at the Alligator Farm
-Paint with dolphins at Marineland
-Stroll leisurely down the beautifully manicured paths of the exotic gardens of Washington Oaks Park
-Zip up and down the old cobblestone streets of old St. Augustine on rented motor scooters and stop off at the bakeries for a quick treat

For over 16 years we have been coming home to our island retreat paradise and discovering new restaurants, taking new adventures, engaging in new experiences, and seeing the island through both tourists' and locals' eyes! We haven't come close to running out of things yet, and would love to help you plan your trip by giving you the local tips on where to eat and what to do to soak up everything this corner of the world has to offer. So come, accept our invitation, come to what will feel like home and make you never want to leave.

We invite you to…

Bathe in breathtaking sunrises and sunsets from the comfort of your living room,
Travel only a few steps so you can walk for miles scavenging seashells on a pristine beach, and
Forget you’re on land as you’re lulled to sleep by waves crashing mere feet from your bedroom window.


We invite you to…

Imagine the days of Ponce de Leon as you discover the charming city of nearby St. Augustine,
Break away from tourist attractions and explore the way old Florida used to be, and
Taste the best the south has to offer from smoky barbeque to melt in your mouth gourmet and everything delicious in between.

We invite sun seekers, adventure cravers, and those who have a love affair with the ocean. Whether it be for escape or adventure, or a little of both, we invite you to stay in our beachy chic condo as a base for tranquility and exploration of Crescent Beach on Anastasia Island and the hundreds of attractions nearby.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: My mother grew up in Florida and then moved out west to college. While I was born and raised in the west, each year as a child we would pack into the car and drive across the country to spend the summer in Florida. While I live in the west also, my heart still lives in Florida, and several times a year, I jump on a plane to 'go home.' We have owned this unit for over 13 years and have spent over a hundred thousand dollars in remodeling and decorating since! In that time our four children married and started families of their own. Now we enjoy bringing them and our six grandchildren to hunt for sea shells and to enjoy 'our beach.' In addition to bringing our family each year, we bring our friends to enjoy what we lovingly call 'our little piece of paradise.' We invite you to come as friends and see why once you stay on Anastasia Island in our condo, your heart never really leaves, wherever you go home to!

Why the Owner Chose Crescent Beach:
Crescent Beach on Anastasia Island is like a secret we hesitate to share, and yet can't keep to ourselves. The beaches are not very busy, and can sometimes even be vacant (where else does that happen?)! It's surrounded by entertainment and adventure, and yet we are always content just breathing in all our condo and the ocean out the door has to offer!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Whenever we stay in the condo as a family we have ensuing fights about who gets to sit in the chaise lounge. There is no better seat in the house, than that one! Read the description of our unit to get the full extent of what I am talking about. Also, because we are an end-unit we are privileged with stunning views in both directions. When you sleep in the master suite it really is like sleeping on a cruise boat (without all the rocking) because all you can see is ocean!
