Crescent Beach house description
A private saltwater pool, 2 balconies, and sleek modern designs await you at Fan-ta-sea, our 2-story house on a quiet street just 3 blocks from the beach. From the large patio to the contemporary kitchen, you will love the light, airy feel of Fan-ta-sea!
Every room in our house seems extra-large, because the furnishings are so tailored and minimalist. You'll sleep soundly in these ultra-comfy beds, enjoy curling up on the giant sectional sofa, and have fun cooking up fresh-caught seafood in our streamlined kitchen. The large fenced backyard boasts a 30' by 20' covered patio with a brand-new grill, and plenty of dining and lounging space, both poolside and in the cool shade! An enclosed outdoor shower with hot water soothes tired beachgoers and pool-swimmers alike, and the hardwood and tiled floors indoors feel great on hot 'beach feet'!
Your favorite places at Fan-ta-sea may all wind up being outdoors, beginning with the upstairs deck. Accessible from the enormous master bedroom, it is a leafy paradise, spanning the length of the house and boasting a ceiling fan, light, and comfortable spots to sit and dream. You can hear the surf from here, and it's a great place both to begin and end each day.
The patio and pool area is also enticing, with brick pavers, a nice high wooden fence for privacy, and all the space your gang needs to run around, sunbathe, picnic, and generally revel in the sunshine. An outdoor staircase, wreathed in lush tropical vines, connects the upstairs and downstairs outdoors. And the front yard is beautifully landscaped with tall canopy trees that offer plenty of natural shade. You'll love getting out into the balmy Florida air in the privacy of your own garden!
Indoors, the house is divided between the living and dining area on the first floor and the sleeping quarters on the second. Step into the living room and you will be beguiled by the sense of spaciousness. Perhaps it's because the TV is upstairs, in the master bedroom, making the living area all about talk, music, and play. The piano stands ready, the fireplace glows in winter, and a giant sectional sofa invites you to stretch out and get comfortable. Windows abound, handsome copper-colored drapes offer further privacy, and a soft rug awaits the kids' toys and games. Ah! the serenity of vacation!
Adjacent to the living area, in front of a giant picture window, is our dining table. Chances are, part of your group will immediately establish this space as a computer center (you have free Wi-Fi at Fan-ta-sea) or game table, and that's just fine, because with the patio mere steps away, everyone is going to want to take their food outdoors anyway!
The kitchen is beside the dining area, with a kidney-shaped breakfast bar overlooking a large work table, granite counters beneath the wooden cabinets, and brand-new stainless-steel appliances, including a side-by-side fridge and freezer with ice and water in the door. Two or even three cooks can concoct delicious treats in this kitchen at the same time, while the peanut gallery perches at the breakfast bar, contributing crayoned drawings or a running commentary! Have fun exploring the cupboards for all the cool utensils, gizmos, cookware, and dishes we've loaded in. You don't have to be a gourmet cook to appreciate a well-stocked kitchen!
Upstairs, the first stop must be the master bedroom, an enormous room that includes a queen-sized bed, couch, ottoman, desk, and the TV/DVD player. There's room to roller-skate on this floor, but don't give the kids any ideas! The en-suite bath is also magnificent, with a Roman garden tub, walk-in shower, and his-and-her vanities.
The second bedroom sports a queen bed as well, while the third offers both a queen and a toddler bed, the fourth has a double, and there's even a sleeper sofa for 1 on the first floor. Another full bath and a half-bath are available, as well as our laundry room with washer and dryer. We provide all the linens, too. Pack light!

This property is not as advertised. It is old, dirty and in bad need of repair. The price is too high for what you get. Milky windows, slanted floors, lack of drapery and an overall disappointment upon our arrival. We had to call to get lighting for the stairways, which by the way is the only way to get to the top floor, approximately 33 steps. Heart patients and older folks should stay away. I would not recommend this property. What you see in the ads is not what you get!!!! Buyer Beware!!!

Hardly a Castle, needs a major renovation....the beach is awesome, beautiful
Hardly a Castle, needs a major renovation....the beach is awesome, beautiful
We just returned home from Crescent castle and were greatly disappointed in this house. First and foremost was the fact that we had our three minor children with us and basically this house is two totally separate apartments, each with two bedrooms and no connecting staircase inside the house. So, for our family vacation my husband and I had to sleep in two separate locations. I feel like this should have been disclosed. The house is extremely dated...the kitchen cabinets are falling apart and it just didn't feel clean. There wasn't a full size coffee maker that worked, there was a broken coffee maker and one with a cracked carafe and then a tiny one that made one cup at a time. Also, everything in the kitchen was like yard sale stuff, nothing matched, no sets and what was there was so used it felt more like camping. Most of the windows in the house have broken seals so you can't even see out of them. The master bedroom ceiling fan had so much dust caked on it that I cleaned it myself because I couldn't fathom sleeping directly under it. There are no screens in window or doors, so you can't enjoy the air or sounds because of bugs getting in. The master sliding door wouldn't lock and I found a broom handle to put in the track. The toilet in the master bedroom ran constantly and there was exposed wiring on one of the walls in the Master. The air vents dripped water constantly and the drywall around the vents were drooping from having so much moisture. The sheets and towels are all a hodge podge of yard sale looking stuff, full of holes and frayed seams...they didn't feel or look fresh and clean. There is no garbage disposal and also don't expect to watch any TV...I think we got a total of 10 channels. It really is a shame because the beach is gorgeous, the property's only redeeming factor. This was our third summer and third house at St Augustine and the most expensive by far but this house couldn't hold a candle to the other two. Also, I emailed the President of the rental company and he never responded. The property manager did send someone with a new coffee pot and a set of sheets and someone to clean the pool. The Property manager and the man that came out were both very nice and did the best they could under the circumstances. I think something very telling is that every house we have ever rented had a guest book to write comments in and memorialize your visit...this was noticably missing from Crescent castle. You don't get what you pay for here.

About: My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now I am managing other people's properties in St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 500+ vacation rentals. We booked over 10,000 rentals and received over 3,000 guest reviews in 2011. You can find some of these by going to search engines and typing in Steve Milo or 'Vacation Rental Pros' . Thank you!
Why Crescent Beach:
And the best part of it all is the location. You're within a short car ride of historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in America filled with pedestrian walkways with shops, cafes and first class restaurants. We are also close to Daytona Beach and the Daytona speedway and museum. We are also only a 1 1/2 hour drive to Orlando and Disney World/Universal/Sea World as well as 1 1/2 hour to the Kennedy Space Center. Our rental is also a short car ride to Ponte Vedra Beach and PGA golf Course and TPC as well as Jacksonville with the brand new St John's Town Center (with a Costco), Avenue Mall and River Front Arcade. There is also a minor league baseball team and a professional football team and stadium.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach is wide and unspoiled here by large crowds. Kids will spend hours exploring, and their parents and grandparents will love discovering new areas to relax and reconnect If you're ready for uncrowded beaches, balmy weather, clear skies, and Florida's natural wildlife, come visit us today!
