About the property


Once you stay, rest, and play on the white sandy beach of Crescent Beach (few minutes south of St. Augustine Beach) in this newly renovated townhome with breathtaking views, you will never want to vacation anywhere else. This property is very popular for four reasons:


Unlike the other 'beach-front properties' on St. Augustine Beach or Crescent Beach, this oceanfront condo has no long boardwalk over the sand dunes to get to the warm sandy beach. Simply step onto the beach from the pool deck, ditch your shoes, and have fun on a secluded beach away from the crowds. This is truly beachfront, the likes of which you won’t find in other complexes on St. Augustine Beach or Crescent Beach!


This unit boasts high-end design throughout including crown moulding and Wainscot paneling. As you look through the photos and read the details about this condo, you will see a comfortable tropical setting decorated with high quality Rattan and cottage style furniture that invites you to relax and unwind and soak up the beach out your window- giving you the comfort you deserve.


You’re already closer to the beach than any other complex. In addition, this complex is shaped like a V so nobody is in front of you blocking out your view. Lastly, only 1/4 of the units in this complex have a setup that has very little of their neighbor’s wall jutting out into part of their view— and we are one of them! We literally get contact by our guests telling us they were surprised by how amazing the view was—-the pictures just don’t do it justice!


Three LED widescreen smart TV’s (one in every room) plus Blu-Ray players and sound bar in the living room. Plus this unit is equipped with a dependable dedicated WI-FI—a must if you need to work or are on the internet a lot. Also great for streaming movies to the TV’s, etc. The complex also has shared WI-FI for the pool area but it is not very reliable for inside the condos—so this is a major perk!

Read below for the setup of this condo:

Living Room

The living room is furnished with quality Rattan style furniture with tropical wall art to provide a true beach atmosphere. The sliding glass door spans the full length of the balcony to provide magnificent views of the beach and pool! In addition, the living room is furnished with a queen size foldout sofa, an LED widescreen smart TV, Blu-Ray player and sound bar plus.


Completely remodeled with new granite countertops and new fixtures, this kitchen is not only fully stocked and equipped with microwave, dishwasher, and garbage disposal, but beautiful as well. In addition, the kitchen is right off the living room so as you cook you can gaze out over breathtaking ocean views.

Guest Bathroom

Soft ocean colors design this bathroom with easy walk-in shower (bathroom located right next to the front door) to wash off the beach’s sand after a sun-filled day.

On the second floor, you will find...

Master Bedroom

Master Bedroom is designed with soft beach colors with crown molding and boasts a wall of windows with beautiful ocean and pool views. This room has plenty of storage in closets and dressers, as well as new quality cottage style furniture with king size bed, large LED TV, and smart Blu-Ray player with dedicated WI-FI, perfect for steaming and internet access. Everything you need designed with everything you’ll want!

Second Bedroom

This fun, beach-themed room has two quality full size beds. New bedding and cottage style furniture were purchased at Haverty's plus new LED smart TV and Blueray player.

Upstairs Bathroom

This full bathroom has been remodeled with granite counter tops and modern fixtures.

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

The Coquina Condo is considered by many to be the best complex on the beach for a couple of different reasons:

(1) We are the closest complex to the beach, one of only two complexes that don't have a boardwalk to the beach, but rather just a few steps off the pool deck!

(2) We are a small complex so you don't fight for beach space, the courts, or the pool-- in fact more often than not I find myself alone at the beach for long periods of time and I have never shared the pool!

(3) The way our complex is shaped in a V makes it so you have a great view of the beach without anyone blocking you!

(4) Our pool is at the center of that V right on the ocean, so when you're laying out on the pool deck, you feel just like you're on the ocean!

What makes this condo unique

You can't get closer to the ocean than this unit right here, with the very best views!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay. Our only complaint is that the stay wasn't long enough! From the moment we entered the condo we felt welcomed with wonderful music and a beautiful space. We will definitely be back and look forward to the opportunity to stay in your condo again.

Amazing view of beautiful, wide beach

  • 5 of 5

Nice property. View is incredible. The beach is so wide. We had calm waves and few people around this week. Pool is well kept. The condo was clean and had pretty much all we needed. A wonderful vacation and we would return.

The best view of the ocean & proximity!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Coquina complex and in this unit. We chose this unit again because of its amazing view of the ocean and close proximity to the beach. This unit is located on the second floor so there is a flight of stairs to go up with your luggage and groceries, but if you are physically able to do this, I highly recommend this condo. It was clean and supplied with ample towels for the bathrooms and beach. We didn't cook much while we were there, but the kitchen seemed to have the basics. The bedrooms are upstairs and have comfortable beds. Both bathrooms have been nicely renovated and are bright and cheerful. The living area has seating for 5; one sofa and two chairs. I would recommend this condo for 4 people at a time. The dining table is smallish with seating for 4. The condo is a very short walk to the pool and the beach, which is why we have stayed here twice. Many other condo complexes are not this close to the beach, and this unit in particular is great for easy access. Just remember that you will be going up and down a flight of stairs with your gear everyday. If you know that ahead of time and you are physically able to handle stairs, this unit is great. The Coquina complex is also convenient to the historic city of St. Augustine, A1A, Marineland, deep sea and inland fishing, shopping and many restaurants.

Wonderful week in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in the Coquina Condo's. This is an excellent location and the units are clean and well maintained. If you want a quite relaxing getaway this is the place, it's about 11 miles south of St.Augustine, but it is an easy drive to downtown and all of the attractions, if you want to leave the beach. We didn't!!

right on the ocean, great beach walks. nice place

  • 4 of 5

Very nice condo. We stayed 2 months. This area near St. Augustine is not a 'spring break' area. Tourists are mostly families and older folks. Condo is very nice, porch overlooks the ocean and pool -- however it faces north east and therefore gets no sunlight during the winter. Third floor view from the bedroom window is great. Bathrooms are small but functional. Property manager and condo residents were friendly but not intrusive. We had a great time.
