About the property

A 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit - with a pull-out queen sofa to sleep 6

This is a fully equipped unit - the pictures and reviews tell the story. Just pack your suitcase, bring a little food (or plan on frequenting the great near-by restaurants) and you are ready to have some fun in the sun. The master bedroom has a new queen-size pillow top mattress and box springs, the second bedroom has twin beds. While the unit is not ocean front - it is a very short (4 or 5 minute walk) and you can park right outside the unit. It is a second story condo with vaulted ceiling - very spacious looking .. but this also entails walking up 13 steps - in case climbing steps is a concern.

About Carol Hart

Our four children are grown now, but the family time on this beautiful, relatively unpopulated, white sand beach is indelibly inked in memory. Now that my husband and I are retired, and venturing cross country to visit with family, we would like to share this peaceful retreat.

Carol Hart purchased this condo in 1973

Why Carol Hart chose Florida North East

Just 20 minutes from historic St Augustine, this is the most peaceful property we have encountered. Sometimes it feels like your own private beach. And yet, you are just a short drive to excellent restaurants, and shopping.

What makes this condo unique

You can be as busy or as relaxed as you choose - for me, a beach chair and my Kindle ... just perfect.

Homey, Comfy and Clean

  • 5 of 5

This property is an older garden apartment style condo complex that is nicely arranged and landscaped. It definitely does not have that cookie cutter feel of many of the newer complexes. Our unit was clean, extremely well equipped, comfortable and nicely furnished. The air conditioning worked well and there were fans in every room as well. Lovely! Our unit was on the side of the complex that was on Route A1A so we could hear the traffic when the windows were open. But with the windows closed when the air conditioning was on (which was all the time) we really did not hear the traffic. Lots of great little restaurants nearby which are moderately priced and imaginative. None of those boring overpriced chain restaurants. Groceries etc are about two or three miles away and we found the Winn Dixie to be cheaper and better than Publix. The owner of the unit was a delight to deal with. A lovely person. She responded immediately whenever we contacted her, and we had no problems at all with the unit and the property. We have already booked another two weeks for next year.

Cozy & Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy, comfortable and very livable condo located in a quiet complex. The beach is a short walk from the condo just passed a beautiful and inviting pool. I can't say enough about the gorgeous beach. Love, love, love it! White powdery sand on a very wide beach. You can see & walk on the beach for miles in each direction, which became part of our daily routine. We will definitely go back again if staying in the area. Close to restaurants, groceries, beauty shops and some cute little speciality shops (cupcake shop for one)

Owner's Response: As many, perhaps most, of our guests are repeats, we are gratified that you found us "well equipped." Our goal is to provide a relaxing "home away from home" experience.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful and uncrowded beach! Unit was stocked with everything needed to make a beach vacation enjoyable. We literally only needed to bring our clothes and a few groceries, everything else was already there. Carol is the most responsive owner I have ever dealt with!

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for 5 nights in July and then headed to Orlando for 4 additional nights elsewhere. We would have been perfectly happy in this condo for the entire 9 nights. It was for my husband, myself and our 11 year old son. Although I would not hesitate to rent again and have our three older adult sons join us next time. My husband preferred a harder mattress but I loved the master bed and especially the pillows and comforter.

Everything we needed was there! With multiple food allergies we have to cook everything and pack food for everywhere we go. Ton's of condiments in the fridge. Carol even provided bottled water and a bag of ice in the freezer. My husband used the outdoor grill near the pool which worked great! There was a cooler to use as well. My son enjoyed the boogie boards and especially the basketball net for the pool. The pool was very nice and never crowded at all. I think the walk to the beach may have been more like two minutes. It's the best beach I have ever been on besides in the Bahamas. The sand was so nice and soft. Beautiful shells to be found but not too many that hurt your feet. The water was so warm in July. The small geckos running around the outside of the condo were cute and not bothersome at all. Carol was awesome as she really wanted to make sure we had everything we needed and she responded very quickly when I texted her from the beach for the gate code on the pier. The markets close by are fun and we found lots of sand volleyball courts that we had to tell our older sons about. We also found organic food and gluten free options in multiple stores close by. It's a short drive to the Gator Farm and downtown St. Augustine. St. George Street is my favorite! The fort is awesome and so is Flagler College. It is also worth your money to take the train trolley tour. Everything is worth seeing. I want to go back today!!! There is so much more to see and do. We rented a vehicle and ended up getting stuck in the sand on the beach but the Sheriff that helped get us out was so nice and even gave us information on the sea turtle nests that we pulled over to see when we got stuck. EVERYONE here was so nice!!! I want to live here really bad. I could write forever about St. Augustine. Thank you Carol! This was one of our best vacations ever! Cannot wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Our goal is to always have a guest as happy as you are! I feel the same way about Crescent Beach ... one of those "best kept secrets." Hope you can come back again soon ... and .. thanks to you for leaving everything so nice.
