Newly renovated in 2017. Facing the shores of Crescent Beach with its back to the Intracoastal Waterway, Jean's Dream is a huge, luxuriously appointed Mediterranean-style house. Watch the sunrise from the front deck and set from the back deck at our magnificent oceanfront house! And, the house has an elevator and high-speed wifi inside. Jean's Dream has a new private heated pool!
Set back from a beautifully landscaped, sloping garden and with a new private pool, Jean's Dream greets you with a formal entry set in tile with a decorative mosaic. You have your choice of stairs or an elevator to transport you to the second floor, where a huge living and family room area awaits, replete with ocean views and ultra-comfortable couches and chairs. Build a fire in the coral fireplace or just enjoy the game on our LCD TV between glimpses of the blue Atlantic out the windows!
Our kitchen and dining areas may just inspire you to prepare a feast . . . but even if nothing more time-consuming than takeout is on the menu, you'll enjoy serving it from our gracious wood-and-tile kitchen. It's got full-sized appliances, a walk-in pantry, and all the time-saving gadgets you could desire, plus a full complement of cookware, dishes, and utensils.
Dine in the sun-washed room with tile floors and a formal table for 8. Spacious and restful, this is room to linger in long after the food is gone and the wine poured. Let the outside light illuminate the room as long as possible, then turn on the soft modern chandelier and enjoy a long discussion or break out the board games.
The master bedroom is upstairs, an enormous room with a ultra-comfortable king-sized bed, HD TV, and a pair of easy chairs facing the beautiful picture windows. The views are amazing at any time of day, and one morning you may just have to watch the sunrise from the comfort of your bed!
An en-suite master bathroom adjoins the bedroom, with a Jacuzzi tub as well as a shower. The windows are opaque for privacy, but light still shines through, bathing the area in a golden haze. What a relaxing way to wake up or wind down!
There are 3 more bedrooms within Jean's Dream, plus another bathroom and two sleeper sofas to accommodate up to 4 extra guests in addition to the 8 for whom there are beds. The first bedroom contains a king bed and HDTV, plus plenty of bureaus and closet space. The 2nd bedroom also boasts a king bed (who wants to share anything less?!), while the 3rd contains two twins with nice large windows and lots of floor space. A 2nd full bathroom is convenient to the bedrooms on this floor, and a washer and dryer are tucked away for loads of towels and swimsuits!
But the inside of Jean's Dream is just the beginning of its charms. A large front deck looks directly out at the beach, while a back deck offers great views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Our private railed walkway leads you over the dunes and onto the beach. There is even an outside shower.
And they're more fun begins! Crescent Beach is a lovely stretch of coastline, with many treasures for beachcombers, soft sands for digging and playing, and rolling waves. Try a bit of fishing in the surf, boogie-board the waves, watch the sunrise, and sunbathe on the sand. Just a few minutes in the opposite direction is the Intracoastal Waterway, with a maze of inlets and fantastic hiking and nature trails. Perfect for watercrafts.
The Crescent Beach neighborhood is a beloved part of Florida, with many locals. With old St. Augustine just up the coast, there is always plenty to see and do. So come stay at Jean's Dream soon, for a gala family event or a private getaway.

The house is great, but the management company is not
This was a replacement house for a girls beach vacation the week of Hurricane Irma. The original house we had booked was damaged, so we scrambled to find this one. I booked on a Thursday night and we checked in Friday, so I realize it was a very quick turn-around time, during what was already, a busy week (due to Irma).
That said, the house was really not in any condition to be rented. And the response from the management company was not acceptable. The master bedroom looked like it had just been slept in. The covers were partially pulled away, just like a single person had slept there, then pulled the covers over to get up. I immediately called and was told that housekeeping was just there. I explained again the condition of the bed and asked if someone could come out and change the sheets. Again, I was told that they were clean, and maybe housekeeping just forgot to make the bed in a rush. Again, I asked for someone to come change the sheets. Again, he said they were clean. Finally, I literally said "can you just humor me and send someone with clean sheets and I'll change them myself?" They did.
After that, I did an inspection of the house. There was trash in most of the trashcans, a dead roach that had bled out or something on the master bathroom counter, hair in the shower drains, a lot of dead bugs around the house, etc. All of this was hard to believe when I was told multiple times that housekeeping had just been there. I took pictures and sent to every email address I had - no response from the owner/manager.
The house itself is great. It is steps from the beach, which is really quiet and seems almost private. The pool is actually in the front yard, which is pretty much right on A1A - the main road. But who needs a pool when you have the beach?
After booking, the contract information said you could not turn the air below 72 degrees or you could be charged more. I live in Florida (about 45 minutes north) and I turn my air below 72 degrees to sleep. So I found this a little odd.
All in all, we still managed to have a great vacation. I would rent this house again - if it was under different management. And I would never rent from this company again.
Beautiful house! The views are amazing
We loved the location, great beach. The house is very well stocked and a few little issues were addressed right away! We will be regulars there!
Newly renovated, well provisioned and gorgeous beach!
Jean's Dream was the perfect house for our family vacation. The newly renovated interiors were beautiful, spacious and well laid out. The kitchen was well-stocked with plenty of dishware, cookware, spices and staples. The beach is wide and uncrowded with beautiful sand and crystal clear water. Although we had brought our own beach chairs and tent, there were a bunch already supplied with the house, stored at the end of the beach walk. The description on VRBO was a little misleading in that they said there was a master on the top floor and 3 additional bedrooms on the first floor. There are only 2 bedrooms on the bottom floor ( a king with 2 bunks and another king, both with attached baths). There is no bedroom with 2 twins as stated. There is a den with a pullout sofa on the top floor that can be used as a bedroom (just no actual bed). Also, the 4th bathroom is in the garage and unairconditioned. Also, all of the game tables mentioned (pool and air hockey) no longer exist. The elevator did not work while we were there. The garage is not usable in that it was filled with old furniture. Don't let these complaints deter you from renting this house. As long as your expectations are clear, the house that is provided is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I would rent it again in a heartbeat.
Best Beach ever and we were right on it!
This house was perfect for us and and our 3 children. Right on the beach, has a nice deep, small pool, lots for the kids to do... a pool table, fuzball and ping pong. The TV's were a little old and the movies did not play well on the DVD players but that was no big deal. The location was incredible and the kids went to surf school. Close by nice restaurants and downtown st. Augustine was a fun outing. We will definitely come back. The beach was just beautiful, waves and pristine sand. The property was clean, we had to call for a repair and they came righto out, check in and out was easy. Viola's restaurant nearby had great pizza and food.
Loved our time art this destination
We truly enjoyed our time at this lovely residence. Great beach, lovely home and pool and we enjoyed the foosball, pooltable and air hockey. Clean and well equipped. Pool was small but enjoyable. Highly recommend staying here.
The Amazing Grace property was just wonderful!
We were there to celebrate three big milestones this year - my husband's 50th birthday, our 25th wedding anniversary, and my Dad's 80th birthday. We had 10 people total - my family of 4, my sister's family of 4, and my parents. We all fit just fine in this beautiful house! The downstairs had just been redone to now include 3 full baths, and 2 bedrooms - 1 with a King Bed, and 1 with a King Bed and 2 twin bunk beds. The upstairs level includes a master with a King Bed and attached big bathroom, plus two other fold out couches - one in the living room and one in the family room. There is also a 1/2 bath on this upper level. Favorite features of this home - located right on the beautiful & peaceful white sands of Crescent Beach, heated private pool, elevator, wonderful master suite and bathroom, 2 walk-in closets in master, fully equipped kitchen, wonderful ocean and intercoastal waterway views, close to St. Augustine, very big family and living room with comfy seating, tv's and ceiling fans in each bedroom, laundry room, games - ping pong, foosball, and air hockey/pool table. GREAT PLACE!
