Crescent Beach studio description

Ridley Suite is a studio situated in a quiet, oceanfront retreat on nearly 2 acres of natural, dune property with the pristine beaches of Anastasia Island as the front yard. It is located just south of historic St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city. A large suite with kitchen, HD TV, 50 mbps wireless internet and more. Enjoy beautiful white sand beaches with swimming, surfing, fishing, barbecue in a private, natural setting. We also supply beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, scuba masks for the kids, fishing gear, small cooler, carts to tote down the path to the beach walkover and much more.

With only 2 cottages and 3 suites on the entire oceanfront property, it feels like your own, private tropical escape. Pelican Cottage, Kemp's Cottage, Hawksbill Suite, Monarch Suite and Ridley Suite are all listed on VRBO. Choose to view all listings below for more information. The extensive renovations included replacing most of the systems, insulation and soundproofing, new windows, doors, bathrooms and kitchens, providing luxurious accommodations to the perfect St. Augustine, beachfront vacation.

The newly landscaped property includes many tall palms, flowering tropical plants and places to relax. When you follow the 2 minute long path to the beach you'll come across many native plants and will get to know the original residents of the land including the gopher tortoise, the wildlife that their burrows support, the monarch butterflies as they migrate, and many species of birds. Lounge in the courtyard, cool off in the pristine waters of Crescent Beach, surf at one of the best surfing beaches in Florida, visit one of the many great restaurants, or cook in your well-equipped kitchen.

If you need something, ask our helpful onsite staff, call or email, we are there to make sure your time at The Silver Sands is second to none.

                                This is our fourth stay at this renovated, but still old-style lodging ten miles south of St. Augustine. There are only five units here, so it is very quiet. The renovations are quite attractive, without taking away from the spirit of the original building. Everything was perfect for us: comfortable bed, nice kitchen appliances (we did most of our cooking in-house), great management, nice and friendly clientele, 286 pleasant steps to the beach, we were blessed with really nice weather, so it made leaving rather difficult. But we will gladly return here, and we would recommend this to anyone who likes simplicity, with comfort , convenience, and value attached.

                                This was our 4th visit and it gets better every time! The room has all new appliances and bed, so is comfortable and convenient. The kitchen has everything we needed. The staff is friendly and helpful and other guests have always been very nice. It's wonderful to be able to just walk across the boardwalk to the beach and they allow dogs, which is unusual in FL. We will go back next year!

                                Trip Advisor: A very friendly and peaceful place to stay. Small number of units makes one feel at home and able to meet and be friends with everyone staying there. Beach was great, internet access was great. There were many things there that we took with us such as umbrellas, beach towels, beach chairs, etc and even toothbrushes as a special touch. Next time we will take fewer things. Beds were very comfortable. Great place for an individual retreat or for a family. Nice grilling areas and very clean. Very nice management personnel. We will definitely return.

                                this place is awesome! a walkway away from the beach. the room we stay in was the rildley suite it was geat a kitchen so we could cook. tile floors and a walk in shower are convinient after a day at the beach. if you want a very quite week or weekend by the beach this is the place to go. wish they would keep irons in the room though. but really that is just a small piece of detail when you think of all the relaxing, clean, and conviniently located to the beach. this place is awesome and I cant wait to return back.

                                From Trip Advisor: We spent 2 nights in the Ridley unit, a small, cozy restful sanctuary...perfect spot for weary travellers to unwind and refuel. The quality craftsmanship and materials used in the refurbishing of this charming property were not overlooked. The beautiful wide sandy beach was accessed by a private walkway...uncrowded, except for the shorebirds.

                                My husband and I and our two dogs were in much need of a break! After weeks of searching for a beach destination that was nice and also welcoming to our dogs we came across Silver Sands. The place was recently renovated and allows dogs in the suites and on the beach! Our dogs love to swim and play in the sand so finding a location where the pups would be allowed to frolic was difficult. We were thrilled to find this place and the drive for us was not too bad. Silver Sands is nestled in a lush setting off a quiet road. It seems to have been a Motel in days old and has now been updated to a modern yet cozy and intimate boutique style rentals. We stayed in the Ridley Suite since it was the only one available when we could travel. It was small, a bit too small for our 2 dogs and us but it was still a great room. Next time we'll reserve with time and get one of the cottages. We loved the full sized fridge, oven and microwave! It even comes equipped with a dishwasher! Free high-speed wifi is wonderful too. The only negative was the beds. They weren't terrible but definitely not comfortable. The Ridley suite has two full sized beds in it and both had dips in the center. It probably would've been okay for just one person but put 2 adults in it and we were smushed together all night, it definitely made it a little more romantic! The staff we met on site were all super friendly and helpful. They were great and definitely made us feel welcomed and right at home. Downtown Saint Augustine was about a 22 minute drive from where we were. It wasn't too bad since we only went twice to walk around but it was longer than I anticipated. It worked out for us in the end because Crescent Beach isn't all commercialized and tightly packed like Saint Augustine Beach, it ended up being exactly what we wanted. Overall the place is wonderful and at a great price! It is deserving of 4.5 stars but VRBO doesn't allow half stars. I would definitely recommend to friends and family. We hope to return soon!

                                Owner response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have replaced the 2 new full beds with 1 King bed to make it even more of a retreat!

                                I have to say it was so amazing so secluded,it took my breath away. This was a wedding gift from a very special friend and his family we are truly blessed.he could not of picked a better place to send us for our honeymoon.i love the fully equipped kitchen,large glass shower.we loved it and we will be going back soon. I rate this place as a 5star...
