              Car: Necessary

              The St. Augustine area is wonderful as a romantic getaway or as a place for a fun family vacation. Besides the white sugary sand beach which is just steps from the condo, this condo is just a short car ride to lots of history and attractions. A visit to the Matanzas Inlet will inspire whether the tide is coming in or going out. Near the Matanzas Inlet is the Fort Matanzas National Monument which is just two miles from the condo. It is free to visit and operated by the National Park Service. It includes a short boat ride across the Intracoastal to get to the fort. The area around the docks is teeming with fish and wildlife. There is also a fish camp/bait shop less than a mile to the north of the condo. One of the best restaurants in the area is two miles to the north and The Matanzas Inlet restaurant often offers live music on their patio overlooking the Inlet. Closer to St. Augustine you can enjoy the Alligator Farm - a kids favorite. Kids also love the Black Raven pirate cruise which departs daily out of St. Augustine harbor. Alternatively, more traditional daily scenic cruises depart from the same harbor. The Lightner Museum, Flagler College, the Castillo de San Marcos and St. George's Street are all pleasant places to see in St. Augustine. St. Augustine also has a vibrant restaurant and bar scene. This area boasts some of the best golf courses in the south. The World Golf Hall of Fame and its courses are about a 30 minute drive north on I-95. Further up the coast on the scenic A1A is the TPC Sawgrass at Ponte Vedra, about a 45 minute drive. Twenty minutes to the south is Palm Coast and the daily fee courses at Hammock Beach: The Ocean Course and The Conservatory. This area is home to excellent fishing year round. And the St. Augustine Outlet stores are just 20 minutes north on I-95. There are plenty of things to do nearby but it's easy to find yourself passing the day on the beach or around the pool at the condo.

              This condo is only 80 miles from the Georgia state line at I-95 , 70 miles from Gainesville and about a 2 hour drive from Orlando.

              Year Purchased: 2104

              About: My aunt purchased this condo in the early '80s. I have been coming here since I was boy, spending entire days on the beach with my family. We'd make trips into old St. Augustine and take in the attractions. Today, my wife, two boys and I look forward to our annual week at the beach. As soon as I turn on A1A my mind goes back to all the childhood memories I made here. It's nice to share the legacy of this place with others.

              Why Crescent Beach:
              Having purchased this condo a few years after moving to Florida, my aunt welcomed her family to share in the magic and secret that is St. Augustine and Crescent Beach. She was scouting condos for my grandparents at the time and came across this complex. She was so impressed with the grounds, the construction, the views (and the elevator!) and its natural beauty, she could not resist owning a little piece of it for herself to share. We purchased it from her in 2014 and are thrilled to keep it in the family.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              This condo is and Crescent Beach are a hidden gem. This is a low density area and it cannot be developed much more. It literally is on an island. The nature is amazing. Each day you can enjoy the sunrise over the ocean and sunset over the marshy Intracoastal. Florida sunsets here are a watercolor of delight. The condo is on narrow strip of land between the beach and Intracoastal. This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the country in my opinion. Best of all, with St. Augustine close by, there is so much to do for people of all ages and from all walks of life.
