About Joseph S. Cronk
We are a family of 6 who have lived on Medicis Island since 2003 when we were the only residents. We have two in college, two at home and live between St Augsutine and San Marco, Florida
Joseph S. Cronk purchased this House in 2003
Why Joseph S. Cronk chose Saint Augustine
Fishing, relaxing, a day on the boat to St. Augustine and the beaches. We have enjoyed Longvue cottage for over 15 years and it will always be a part of our extended family. Longvue cottage was built by the daughter and Dr. husband of the original owners of Diego island who purchased the property in 1945 after participating in the engineering and construction of the original IWC. He built the original cottage on the north side of the island which remains a family retreat.
What makes this House unique
330' of marsh river frontage on over 1 acre. Open yard space on both sides offers privacy with a live oak canopy for shade. The island is surrounded by national & state parks and the views are east to Guana State Park and South to Stokes State Park so only two houses in sight in 360 degrees. Ocean breezes over the water keep the evening cool and help with bugs in the summer.

Beautiful Home in St Augustine!
We had an excellent experience staying at this beautiful property. We enjoyed the backyard and being so close to nature even got to see a flock of the endangered Roseate Spoonbills!
This place is exactly what you see in the pictures. It is a beautiful setting, a very nice house that is made for enjoyment. You cannot go wrong staying in this place.
Wonderful Vacation Property
Longvue is excellent house for a Florida vacation. It is located close enough to St Augustine for site-seeing and restaurants, but located on the north side away from all the traffic and crowds. The house is well represented by the pictures. It offers lots of space in a quiet, beautiful setting.
My wife and I just spent six weeks there and hope to return in the future.
A beautiful house in a peaceful relaxing setting with wonderful water views
Loved this beautiful house. It had everything we needed for a wonderful visit. The location is very private yet you are near to conveniences and lots of things to do. The veranda with it’s special views is very special. Joe and Patricia are very helpful and responsive. Could not have asked for a better stay.
Lovely comfortable water front home.
We were attending a wedding in Ponte Vedra which required a place where the family could come and go on their own schedules. We enjoyed dinner at the large dining table, the cool weather let us enjoy the fire pit, the yard was perfect the dog to explore, and the kitchen had plenty of equipment to cook up meals. The house looks just like the photos and was perfect for just finding a spot and connecting with the out of town guests. Because of the location the well water required drinking water to be brought in but the grocery store was five minutes away. The dock even offered an opportunity for some fishing resulting in the catch and release of a nice red fish. The oyster beds at low tide attracted a lot of wildlife which made morning coffee wonderful. A lovely home and we would love to stay again for a long weekend.
We are so glad you were able to enjoy time with your family and take some time off in Florida’s nature.
Great place to gather with friends and family. Fishing was good as well.
Longvue is located in an older, rural, blue collar neighborhood on an island in the intracoastal. 5 miles north to Nocatee or 7 south to old St Augustine. Private road/bridge across the marsh to private Medici/Diego Island which is a Spanish Land grant, state of Florida identified upland island.
