We know you have a lot of options to choose from on crescent beach so here are our top reasons this condo is your perfect seaside hideaway:
1. Completely remodeled luxury unit with all the extras:
This unit has been completely remodeled from paint to flooring and everything in between with high-end finish work, some of which includes: wide tongue and groove white plank ceilings, all new modern light fixtures, all new contemporary bathroom vanities, gorgeous tile work throughout, huge granite countertop, stainless steel appliances, and beautiful hardwood flooring. In addition, all furniture and decor items were replaced with high-end furniture and accessories during remodel, brands include: West Elm, Pottery Barn, Thomasville, and Nautica. Other bonuses this unit includes are: washer and dryer in the unit, water filtration system, and tankless hot water heater. In addition you will find everything you need to be entertained in the indoors including three big screen hdtv’s mounted to the walls (a tv in every room) w/ high definition extended cable service & DVR (so you can record your favorite shows and still make the best show, watching the moon rise out of the ocean), Bluray DVD player, and free wifi. All the comforts of home will tempt you to stay indoors in this immaculately designed and comfortably decorated condo, but we know, the ocean call is too loud to ignore.
2. Near unbeatable views of the beach out your window:
You will savor breath-taking sunrises and views of the ocean from the living room, kitchen, and master bedroom. You will also enjoy exquisite sunsets and views of the intracoastal waterway from the second bedroom. Views here are hard to beat! 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 Crescent Sandpiper. Your views here are unobstructed by tall grassy dunes or long wooden docks blocking the magnificent seascape out your window. Forget you’re on land when you sleep at night; come experience laying down on the soft king bed and seeing ocean waves crash 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 as you watch it from the comfortable rocker chairs on your private deck, or soft leather sofa in the living room, or lay in bed and watch your room turn orange from the glow of sunrise.
3. Best complex and closest to the beach:
Local restrictions mandated condos built after the crescent sandpiper (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. Other factors that make us the best include: we are a small complex with only about half of our units available to rent, our pool is centrally located in the complex so laying out on the pool deck is like laying out at the beach since it is just off the ocean, our complex is shaped like a u, so that every unit has an unobstructed view of the ocean. These factors make this complex one that locals and renters return to every year and make it one of the favorites on Crescent Beach.
Info on complex:
Complex has: private tennis courts, private pool & kiddie pool, a deck with intracoastal waterway views, and laundromat!
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. For over 15 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.

Year Purchased: 2011
About: My name is Marisa and I am a boutique-type manager that specializes in managing a small handful of units in the two best complexes on Crescent Beach (the only two right on the beach— just six steps off the pool deck to sand, as opposed to all others that have long hard wooden boardwalks and stretches of dunes separating you from the sand and the sea). While I’m different from working with an owner (this is what I do for a living so I am fast to answer emails, always available by phone/text, and treat this as a business) I am a lot like an owner as well, in that I have been staying in this complex and on this beach for over 17 years myself (my parents own there)!
I have stayed in most of the units I manage and know the complex, beach, and area as well as I know my hometown. Renting with me means you won’t mess with big companies who have never set foot in our complex, much less your unit. It means that if there are problems, you have 24 hour access to me to help you. It also means that I am here to help you plan your perfect vacation for your group or family.
With 17 years of experience, first coming as a teenager, and now bringing my four children, as well as coming with my retired parents who own there, I am very familiar with what the area has to offer for all ages and the best insider tips for restaurants, places to find sea shells, best places to shop, golf, etc. I would love not only to rent to you, but to help you plan your perfect vacation as well!
See what this guest had to say about their experience with me, “And Marisa…if this isn’t her calling, then I don’t know what is. She could NOT have been more helpful and went above and beyond to answer any questions and offer extra information about the condo and the area.” For more testimonials go to www.stayatcrescentbeach.com.
Why 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?)! The locals still describe that as the way “old Florida used to be” with uncrowded beaches. It’s surrounded by entertainment and adventure and over 365 restaurants, and yet we are always content just breathing in all our condo and the ocean out the door has to offer! If you want crowds-- go to Daytona or St. Augustine beach, if you want quiet pristine beaches come here!
This complex is a small complex with around half of the units available to rent and the other half remaining vacant. We are also one of only two complexes on this beach that are located RIGHT ON the beach--all others have long stretches of dunes and long boardwalks that separate you from the beach. Because we are closer and smaller our views are better, it's easier to get out to the beach, and you don't compete with large crowds and other guests!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: At the end of 2011, we came in and almost completely gutted this unit (the kitchen had just been redone)-- so while we left that intact, we redid everything else, including: new flooring, all new bathroom vanities, toilets, tubs, tile in showers and bathtubs, all new light fixtures, new painting, new white plank ceilings. In addition to remodeling, we replaced all furniture with high-end furnishings from places like: West Elm, Pottery Barn, Thomasville, and Nautica. We also replaced all linens, towels, dishes, and decor. When we say new, we mean new. We also wanted to make this unit extra special by putting in a lot of extras, such as: washer and dryer in the unit, water filtration system, and tankless hot water heater. In addition you will find everything you need to be entertained in the indoors including three big screen HDTV’s mounted to the walls (a TV in every room) w/ high definition extended cable service & DVR (so you can record your favorite shows and still make the best show, watching the moon rise out of the ocean), BluRay DVD player, and free WIFI.
