Most Popular Unit on the Beach: Throw a Rock From the Window & Hit Water!

  • Minimum Stay7 nights

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


With over 95% occupancy for three years running- we are one of the most sought after vacation rentals on all of Crescent Beach! Why?


That’s a bold claim, how can we make it? Well, no condo or home on Crescent Beach is closer to the ocean than this unit! We are an upstairs end unit in the complex closest to the beach, so your views here are unobstructed by tall grassy dunes or long wooden boardwalks blocking the magnificent seascape out your window. Your beach views stretch for miles in both directions. Additionally, only the end units have an extra wall of windows in the living room and master bedroom, bringing those endless beach views right into your unit. It’s not just poetic prose when we say you could forget you’re on land when you sleep at night; come experience laying down on the soft king bed and seeing nothing but ocean waves 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 from the best seat in the house—a chaise lounge surrounded by two walls of windows, or lay in bed and watch your room turn orange from the glow of sunrise. A must-do during your stay is to schedule plenty of time on the chaise watching pelicans dive into the ocean, turtles poke their heads out of the sand dunes, dolphins jump in the waves, and boats lazily sailing by! In fact, some of your best pictures of the beach will be taken from the comfort of this soft chaise lounge and nobody will know you weren’t standing on the sand!


Local restrictions mandated condos built after our complexes to 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 five 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. Additionally because our unit is on the end, we are the closest unit to the beach, hands down; in fact, you’re so close, that at high tide you could throw a rock out the window and hit waves!


The design of this condo was summoned by the seascape and ocean hues out your window bringing indoors the calming color palette of the beach. Beautiful detail work and accessories throughout force this unit to stand out, but not steal the real show happening out your expansive windows. In addition you will find everything you need to enjoy the indoors including a big screen TV w/ high definition cable service & DVR (so you can record your favorite shows and still make the best show-- watching the moon rise out of the ocean), DVD player, TV in the master suite and second bedroom and free private WIFI. All the comforts of home will tempt you to stay indoors in this beautifully designed and comfortably decorated condo, but we know, the ocean call is too loud to ignore.

Recent renovations include:

-New tile flooring that looks like hardwood laid in herringbone pattern

-Completely remodeled kitchen with custom made cabinets, including custom paneled refrigerator, galley kitchen style so you have more room for prep, new appliances, stunning quartz countertops that mirrors the look of the sand outside, and high-end glass tile backsplash

-Main floor bathroom totally renovated with new vanity and gorgeous tile shower with glass tile accents

-Brand new contemporary master bedroom set with large drawers under king bed for storage

-Brand new sitting chair in master bedroom and big screen HDTV mounted on wall

-New comforters in master bedroom and second bedroom

Could you ask for a better three reasons to book this unit today? Perhaps you need an invitation….

We invite you to…

Bathe in breathtaking sunrises and sunsets from the comfort of your living room,

Travel only a few steps so you can walk for miles scavenging seashells on a pristine beach, and

Forget you’re on land as you’re lulled to sleep by waves crashing mere feet from your bedroom window.

We invite you to…

Imagine the days of Ponce de Leon as you discover the charming city of nearby St. Augustine,

Break away from tourist attractions and explore the way old Florida used to be, and

Taste the best the south has to offer from smoky barbeque to melt in your mouth gourmet and everything delicious in between.

We invite sun seekers, adventure cravers, and those who have a love affair with the ocean. Whether it be for escape or adventure, or a little of both, we invite you to stay in our beachy chic condo as a base for tranquility and exploration of Crescent Beach on Anastasia Island and the hundreds of attractions nearby.

About Marisa 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

Why Marisa Dye chose 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?)! It's surrounded by entertainment and adventure, and yet we are always content just breathing in all our condo and the ocean out the door has to offer!

What makes this Condo unique

Perhaps the most popular unit on Crescent Beach, with over 95% occupancy for three years running! Book early and book fast to get the BEST view and location on the beach, literally a stone's throw from the waves at high tide!

                                                      Absolutely wonderful vacation condo!

                                                      Kirk S.Portage mi

                                                      The condo was just as advertised. The view was tremendous! We never turned on the tv all week. We would wake up to a beautiful sunrise, walk the beach, go sightseeing, and come back and spend the evening on the balcony with a nice bottle of wine. All of the furnishings were very comfortable and we slept like babies in the king size bed! We really like the layout being on two levels. If we go back to St Augustine next year ( the current plan )we will stay here again. Great location. Loved it!

                                                      Loved it.

                                                      William L.

                                                      Awesome condo. Clean, neat, comfortable & right on the beach, also very close to St. Augustine.

                                                      Beautiful, very clean, not quite as spacious of isolated as photos seem

                                                      A M T.

                                                      The fact that the unit was in a big development with others is probably why it wasn't more expensive, but we had a fine time.

                                                      Unfortunately for me, there was no desk or writing area. I worked at the dining table, but it wasn't really a good fit. So, although this place would make a great writers' retreat otherwise, I wouldn't plan to do anything other than look at the water.

                                                      The second bathroom is downstairs, which made it a little awkward for us since we were sharing the unit with others and had to run downstairs and upstairs, and there was no bathtub...which would be fine for most people staying in the summer.

                                                      We _loved_ the fainting couch. The views from the master bedroom and living room were lovely and it was easy to ignore the pool area.

                                                      The area is a bit removed from restaurants, but it would have been great if we were just wanting to get away. Extremely quiet and peaceful.

                                                      Absolutely perfect.

                                                      Beautiful. Lovely. Perfect. Wonderful.

                                                      Always a treat

                                                      This was our second time to rent this unit. The location could not be better. The decor is very well done and everything is always immaculate when we arrive. After only 2 visits, it already feels like home. The manager provides excellent service and is very prompt with replies.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thank you for your feedback.

                                                      We are glad your stay "feels like home" and that you enjoyed the excellent service provided my our rental manager.

                                                      We hope to welcome you back again soon!

                                                      Relaxing, Inviting, Comfy, Beautiful!!!

                                                      Melissa E.Winchester, VA

                                                      We always have a fabulous time in St. Augustine. It is our go to relaxing vacation. We did stay for the first year in this condo and the views were absolutely inviting. We have already booked for next year. This condo is decorated so beautifully and the views for both sides of the beach were amazing! Not to mention that we work with Marisa who is a true joy! She is ever so helpful and though I have never seen her face to face, I feel like I have known her for years. Her customer service is outstanding and she goes above and beyond to make sure that all is well and you are having a great stay. God bless you!! Thank you for everything!! I would definitely recommend this property to any of my friends and family. It is very clean and maintained. The only suggestion that I have is to have more lighting in the pool area after dark. It would be nice to sit around the pool in the evening but it is too dark and the lighting is very dim.

                                                      We love downtown St. Augustine. It is so quaint and full of history and so many places to eat and enjoy the views. We will see you next year!!
