Cottage, 1Bedrooms, 1 Baths, one pull out sofa for 2 adults or a small family
The Crescent Moon, in Butler Beach, FL east of A-1A, is a charming 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage unit, just right for a small family, 2 friends or one couple who love quiet and privacy, beach soothing mornings and great evenings to love, walk, dance, and relax. As of October 2015 I no longer am renting to 4 adults at the Crescent Moon. A small family is fine. Perfect for 2 adults with a small family up to 4 persons. Please look at the Ooo Laa Laaah #7117208 on vacationrentals as an alternative for your needs with 4 adults) This is real beach living, not a condo scene, nestled in a really cool little neighborhood. The cottage has linoleum floors, a small bar-like kitchen, and a living area with nice furnishings including a Victorian fainting couch in the bedroom! There is also a very comfortable pull out sofa if needed. Provided is a foam topper to make a super nice pull out.The separate sleeping area with the pull out has a nice privacy curtain. The carpeted bedroom has a queen size bed and the one bathroom is ensuite. The cottage has its own private entrance/covered/fenced courtyard with patio furniture, fun party lights and gas grill. The bathroom has a large shower and all new incoming plumbing (July 2015) throughout the cottage with nice water pressure. The front porch is a covered sitting area with privacy and nice landscaping. Also, there is a covered side patio with a propane Weber grill for your use. The front patio is open and has a hose with doggie bathtub around the front of the cottage. Wifi, internet, Direct TV, and a HE washer and dryer. There is a covered single carport which makes ease of getting out of your car and walking into the cottage. The cottage provides room for ONE CAR ONLY! Visitors must find a parking space at another location. There simply is not enough room for two vehicles at all.
IF you are interested in a longer stay, cleaning fees of $82 each week will be added to your stay.

About Martie McLean
I'm 69 years old and I live in Ocala, Florida. I have rented the front of the property for 8 years and have had fantastic reviews through other vacation websites. I also have a rental at Dekle Beach Florida that keeps me busy during scalloping season. I take great pride in my beautiful places and am very responsive to any of our guests' needs. I do not live locally but can be there in 2 hours. I have a team of folks that help me with any issues you may encounter. I am available by phone but especially by email. The lovely apartment is tastefully decorated and fully furnished. I want nothing more than for you to have a wonderful time at Ooo Laa Laaah and the Crescent Moon.
Martie McLean purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Martie McLean chose Butler Beach
Butler Beach is one of the nicest beaches in Florida. I wanted a place in this quaint little neighborhood.
What makes this Cottage unique
Private, quiet, and inexpensive. It is not a condo scene with stairs and noise from other guests. Pets are welcome but no more than two pets is allowed. The house has no steps to get into the home. All amenities are there. I take care of it as it is my home away from home when I need it.

My husband & I had a wonderful stay at Crescent Moon! It was very easy to find & a good location. Very clean! Would definitely stay there again! Ms. Marti was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns.
Just what we needed
It's difficult for me to find accommodations that meet what I need in a setting that I like; we're not big on fancy hotels, prefer to find "old" Florida with its character. I use a power chair for distance, a walker indoors and so there are certain criteria, foremost being a walk-in shower - with safety bars; I was in heaven! And a place that's not overly large so there's not a lot of walking. This fit the bill - and the fact that it was in a quiet neighborhood in an area with not a lot of traffic was even better. The eclectic decor added to the charm of the cottage which had everything we needed. Weather didn't cooperate so we couldn't enjoy the outdoor areas of the cottage as much as I'd have liked but loved the covered parking as I think we were there during monsoon season. Restaurants and grocery were nearby (Viola's in particular was great! Best mussels - yum); it was a short drive to St. Augustine proper for sightseeing. Would love to come back again.
Super nice review! And very informative for future guests! I thank you for mentioning the safety bars. Martie

Comfy, nice, convinent
We really enjoyed our stay at the crescent moon. Martie was great and respond to calls and emails if needed quickly. The decor is very nice and it’s very comfy. Everything you need is there. They even had beach chairs and toys for the baby to play with on the beach. We went for our anniversary weekend with our daughter. The old fort was a 20 minute drive and there were great restaurants located near by. It was a short walk to the beach. I would recommend the crescent moon!
You were super nice guests. I hope your baby enjoyed the toys. There is a nice collection in the laundry room. Thank you again. Martie
Cute and comfy
This is a cute little place close to the beach and activities in the area. We traveled with 2 dogs and were very happy with our stay. I booked this based on good reviews and I was very happy with the cottage. Met the owner and she is very nice. We would stay here again
Hi, Valerie, it was so nice meeting you. I hope you return as you were the perfect guest. Martie
Awesome cottage close to beach.
Very clean and comfortable. Martie is excellent to work with and is really on top of things. She pays attention to the smallest of things. Plenty to do and really good restaurants. Highly recommend this place.
