About Jules

We are a professional couple who live in Jacksonville, have two children, and bought this unit so that WE TOO COULD enjoy a relaxing oceanfront vacation.

Jules purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jules chose Florida North East

We looked at beaches from Amelia Island down to Daytona Beach, and Crescent Beach is by far the best place! The soft white sand beaches that are not over crowded, to the local restaurants and quiet safe feel wherever you go . . . it just does not get better than this!

What makes this condo unique

Walking a mile down the beach to an oceanfront restaurant, riding bikes everywhere (on the beach or on sidewalks) going down and fishing in Matanzas Inlet, enjoying fabulous sunrises, the Ocean is perfect for kids as it is a gradual incline so waves are not overbearing (close to the shore).


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This unit has a beautiful view of the ocean and is located about 10-15 minutes to historic St. Augustine(an easy and scenic drive). The owners were prompt in responding to requests,provided a comfortable and very clean condo, and were generous in allowing us to use so much of their supplies. We appreciated the use of the garage for our bikes. This was a perfect place for us and a nice alternative to staying in a hotel. Thank you Jules. Erik

The perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Creston House. Working with the property owner Jules was a breeze and she responded to any questions I had in a timely manner. The condo was equipped with plenty of beach and bath towels, extra sheets, board games, kitchen supplies, everything and more listed on her website. The view outside the balcony overlooked the community pool, then the sand dunes, and then the beautiful ocean. The walk to the ocean over the sand dunes is very scenic and my family enjoyed looking for turtles and bunnies. As for the beach, it was AMAZING! The sand is a soft and the water was clear. The beach was not crowded at all and was very private. When we had a cold day, there was so much to do outside of the condo. You are about 15 minutes away from downtown St. Augustine and a fun alligator farm that the family really enjoyed. I highly recommend this property to families with children. Thank you Jules and I hope to visit your property again soon!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We Rented this place for a weekend getaway with our son that attends UCF. We arrived on Friday afternoon to find a perfectly clean and a well stocked Condo.

The property also has a well stocked garage full of all kinds of beach stuff ( boogie boards, beach chairs, ice box, bikes, and a few other toys) .

We took the bikes for a nice ride down the beach for a late lunch at the place that Jules had recommended.

All in all we had a great trip and would recommend the place to anyone.

The best part about this place is that you get to deal direct with the owner of the property and not with an agent or property manager.

Jules was easy to deal with and made the process very easy.

We will I'm sure try to book this place again if we can get in.

Great Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We went to St. Augustine and stayed 6 nights. When we arrived, the unit was very clean. This was the first time I made a trip to the Atlantic side of FL since I was a Kid. I am now in love with the beach at Creston House Condo. Very clean, not crowded, very easy to walk and bike (bikes provided by owner). The condo is only about a 10 minute drive to historical downtown St. Augustine. I will for sure stay here again my next visit to St. Augustine.

We have been blessed to rent this unit three times....all perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up going to this complex as my father bought one of the first units. I rented from the Bonnewitz family, and the experience was definitely five stars. My three children, husband and I relaxed and enjoyed the entire week of family time. Not to mention, the year we rented during the 4th of July, we saw fireworks from both beach and inlet sides of the water. Fabulous! You can't go wrong! We look forward to our next visit! (The date of arrival is not correct, the calendar wouldn't allow me to go to correct dates).
