About the property

Welcome to what just could be Coastal Living Magazines next “Best Beach-Front Cottage.” 100% remodeled in 2017 with high-end materials, designer finishes, and magazine worthy decor.

Staying here will feel like you’ve stepped out of the pages of the magazine into a condo just steps off Crescent Beach’s soft white sugary sands. We are the closest complex to the beach, 1 of only 2 that don’t have a long boardwalk, and we are just 15 minutes from downtown historic St. Augustine.

Among some of the spectacular high end design features throughout you will find: white cottage plank ceiling, faux weathered wood tile, quartz counters, subway tile, stainless steel appliances, plus all new modern lighting, doors, linens, and decor.

Unit Layout and Features

MAIN FLOOR BATHROOM: Just off your right from the entry to wash off the day’s sand you will find the main floor bathroom with glass enclosed walk-in shower highlighting marble-like subway tiles.

KITCHEN/DINING: The most seasoned chefs as well as the the casual cook will be delighted to find an outfitted kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances, gorgeous quartz counters, clean white subway tiles, and plenty of storage space in the full size pantry. We even have beach-front views to take in as you cook. Coastal white pottery dishes fill the glass-front cabinets along with a casual marine blue melamine set so you can enjoy either one. Between the kitchen and living room is your dining area with a cottage pedestal table with seating for four and additional seating at the bar (could be brought over to the table as well to seat a total of six).

LIVING ROOM: In a wide open space to allow for memorable happy gatherings with your family and friends you will find the living room is just off the dining/kitchen. In the living room you won’t be sure whether you want to curl up on the new leather sofa or oversized slipcovered chair to stare out the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors out at the beach in your backyard, or to enjoy the entertainment the 55” smart TV with HD cable, DVR, and On Demand access provides.

VIEWS & PRIVATE BALCONY: Off your living room is your own private balcony with counter height adirondak chairs to maximize the stunning views including the beautifully manicured grounds dotted with palm trees and Hibiscus, the sparkling blue of the pool, and of course the soft white sand and the rolling ocean waves. Be prepared to take many a photo with striking morning sunrises and pallets of warm pink and orange when the sun goes down. You may even spot a dolphin or two in the waves. Bring a book and a drink to enjoy on the outdoor chairs and table provided for your relaxation and beach viewing enjoyment.

MASTER BEDROOM: The master bedroom is your quintessential magazine-worthy coastal cottage look with plank ceiling and striking accent wall done in shiplap. The soft tones of the bedding and decor mimic the crystal fine sands of the beach and gray blue of the waves and sky on an overcast day. Put up your feet and sink into an overstuffed chair in the corner of the room; wrap up in a soft cable-knit blanket and read from the pages of the magazine made up from condos like this, or ignore everyone and everything as you drink in the panoramic beach views from a wall of windows! When the sun disappears and you can no longer watch the waves roll onto the sand, you will enjoy a 50” smart TV with HD cable, DVR, and On Demand access to free movies and shows.

UPSTAIRS BATHROOM: In the upstairs bathroom located between the master bedroom and second bedroom you will enjoy a neutral clean color palette giving the space a modern cottage feel with a glass enclosed shower/tub finished with contemporary subway tile, sconces on either side of the mirror against a plank wood wall, white cottage cabinets and marble looking quartz counter tops.

SECOND BEDROOM: Enjoy a Coastal Maine look in this room with bright pops of color and maritime design. Located next to the bathroom and across from the master, you can easily sleep four in this room with two full beds. Sink into the soft mattresses lined with high-end 3 inch thick foam pads. Enjoy a 43” smart TV that can be used to hook up to your gaming systems or used to access internet and various video apps (your Netflix, Amazon Video accounts, etc.— no cable wired for this room). There is also a door that walks out to a third floor walkway where you can enjoy the sun setting over the Intracoastal Waterway.

About Dustin Dye

My name is Marisa and I am a boutique-type manager that specializes in managing only high end units near St. Augustine.

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 my roots at Crescent Beach run deep.

Crescent Beach was my grandmother’s beach. Her father drove the local school bus in nearby Palatka and each summer they took the bus to the beach, drove onto the sand and spent their vacation camping. My grandmother grew up and moved out west but couldn’t quite get the sand out from between her toes. Every summer she and her husband would pack their five kids (including my mother) into a station wagon and drive 2300 miles back to Crescent Beach. I didn’t drive cross-country or camp in a school bus, but when I was a teenager my parents purchased a unit on Crescent Beach and I grew to love this beach as my grandmother had!

Some family traditions should never die, so I now vacation right here on Crescent Beach with my kids, who have also come to love this still uncrowded beach my grandmother played on 75 years ago.

Because I was the “Guest” before the “Manager,” I have a unique approach in the way I work with guests

This haven from the world is not only in my blood, but also in my heart, so I love introducing others to Ponce de Leon’s magical city of St. Augustine or inviting them to sink their feet into the sugary sands of Crescent Beach and build unforgettable memories that don’t wash away with the incoming tide. For me this is as much a passion as a business! My love of helping others is evident in over 100 renter reviews that name me personally. I take pride in being a positive part of each guest’s vacation experience.

Renting with me means you won’t mess with people from big companies who have never set foot in the complex or unit. It means if there are problems, I provide 24 ho

Relaxing & beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. The condo was beautifully decorated-from the lovely bed linens to the comfy seating. The place was immaculate inside-just lovely. I could move right in and it felt like something decorated by Joanna from Fixer Upper. The ocean views, the beach, the sunrises-all breathtakingly beautiful. Several restaurants are located nearby and all had good food, good service and live music/trivia/bingo options. There were a few hiccups but nothing that warranted too much stress: ie. A man, unannounced, came to fix/replace the front storm door so that was an unexpected surprise (we thought he was trying to break in); young kids were screaming in the pool area on our last night until 1AM, the beach umbrella was broken and the fan in the master bedroom made this ongoing clicking noise when in use. Oh, and I wish the Coquina sign on A1A was easier to see (we drove past it twice and then it's really challenging to find the sign while traveling northbound on A1A). We fell in love with Crescent Beach for its relaxing,friendly atmosphere and feel that The Coquina is THE best place to unwind and enjoy.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely beach retreat! The photos are beautiful, but don’t do it really does look like a Pinterest ‘save.’ The design is gorgeous, the kitchen is well stocked, everything is fresh and clean, and the view of the Atlantic is perfect. What’s not to love?

Relaxing beach property.

Exactly as described. Unit was very clean and updated. Everything you would need to experience a quiet and relaxing beach vacation. Short drive to the grocery store for supplies and easy drive to have a nice dinner in St. Augustine.
