About the property

Bring the whole family when you decide to get Away From It All, with this incredible 5 bedroom and 4.5 bath rental home on Crescent Beach, in St. Augustine, Florida. This is a must-see house.

Away From It All is located on the sparkling white sandy beach overlooking the Atlantic ocean. There’s a private walkway from the house out to the beach, or just soak in the sun alongside your oceanfront pool. You’ll enjoy the unrestricted beach access day and night!

The home itself is gorgeous. It’s decorated with beautiful themes throughout the spacious 5 bedrooms and massive living spaces. There’s a full kitchen with everything you’ll need to prepare meals for the family. Dine while admiring the beach view from the windows. There are (3) King beds, 1 full bed, 2 twin beds, and (2) queen size sleeper sofas.

Crescent Beach is located just south of St. Augustine, on the south end of Anastasia Island. Spend your days at the beach, then head into the historic district of St. Augustine in the afternoon for some fine dining, museums, tours, and 100 other great attractions. You’re not too far from Jacksonville or Daytona, both make excellent day trips from your vacation home.

Great week at the "Away From It All"

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for a large group/family! Having both pool and beach gave plenty of options. In the dining room, kitchen, the deck, screened porch, pool deck are 5 tables, each with 6 chairs! Amazing!

There were 13 of us, two seniors, our 3 adult children and their spouses, 5 grandkids, ranging from age 5 to 17.

The kids rented a grill and beach chairs, we brought crock pots, extra coffee makers and 2 blow up beds.

Suggestions to make it even more spectacular:

Change the double bed to 2 twin beds.

Sheets and light quilts/covers for the pull out sofa beds. (One grandson slept on the sofa instead of the mattress, said the springs in the mattress were hitting him)

More hooks in the bathrooms to hang towels.

(A couple of our kids remarked that the decor was a little tired/80s look, but who cares! There is a baby grand piano!)

We loved the quiet, laid back vibe of the area, little traffic, surprisingly good restaurants near by (Hazarss, Viola's were both excellent, South Beach Grill was good).

We hope to repeat this very special week in 2 years,

Not favorite rental at beach. Concerns reported to management company

  • 3 of 5

already written but not sure it went through. Need to inform renters of many stair included in getting to beach (12 to 15 up and then down 3 times). Extra linens listed in contract were not available, drain in master bathtub rusted, upholstery on family room couch and kitchen chairs needs to be cleaned, severe mildew on stairs to front door (hazardous when wet), pool was great, hot tub not functional but was clean,

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to write a review. We are sorry that you felt you could only leave a 3 star review. The dunes in our area are protected, which requires a beach walkover and this involves steps. We are very fortunate that this home has its own private beach walkover in the backyard! The linen supply has been checked by the housekeeper and the proper amount of linens were available. The upholstery is cleaned on a regular basis. The issue that you have mentioned with the front steps is due to an unusually wet Spring and will be addressed. I am happy to hear that you found the pool enjoyable. We also love the large oceanfront pool!

Great View!

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious and clean home. Great views of ocean! Had 10 people in our group and able to sleep everyone, plenty of seating. Sofa bed is very hard so would not count on that for extra bed. Beach area never crowded.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! I am surprised to hear that the sofa bed was hard as it is fairly new however I do believe that it is a firm mattress.

A wonderful vacation in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

This roomy, comfortable house has very attractive decor with beautiful view of our favorite Florida Beach surrounded on back and one side by Florida trees and scrubs giving the feeling of seclusion while being close to grocery stores, restaurants, etc. The house seems to be in the process of remodeling but the places needing attention are not an undue distraction from enjoying the house and beach.

However, we were 10 adults and needed more complete place settings e.g.,there are only 9 dinner forks. Also we washed the towels as requested, but there are plenty of towels (only 2 hand towels in the largest bath) and expected washing towels to be included in the cleaning service.

I would recommended this Crescent Beach property to others!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I will make sure that the kitchen is stocked with the appropriate place settings. In regards to the bath towels we only ask that you start them in the wash upon your departure and housekeeping will takeover from there. You are welcome back anytime!

Pictures do not do this Beach House justice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this large, beautiful beach house. Directly facing the ocean, sunrises are glorious from the panaremic view in the open floor plan living areas. The house is large enough with plenty of separate seating areas, that a lot of people do not feel crowded. We had 10 adults and 4 children in our party and all slept comfortably. The pool is large and pool maintenance is there regularly to monitor the chemical levels. 2 areas the owners need to improve are the wall paper starting to peel in the powder room and the over-grown landscaping. The first impression walking up the front stairs is not a good one. Shrubs over-hang and impede progress. There is also a dangerously low tree branch in the driveway. We were pleased to see how well cleaned the house was. I would recommend this property to friends and will plan another stay at "Away From It All"!

WOW, WOW, WOW! I can not say enough great things about this house! The house is so open and beautiful! All of the bedrooms are very spacious and with incredible closets! Kitchen has everything that could ever be needed. Beds were super comfy! The pool is very large and very clean. Private walk way to beach is in super- new- condition. AMAZING ocean views and located on a peaceful part of the beach. Our family were first time visitors to the area, but we all agreed it won't be our last. We had adults and teenagers, and everyone was happy. We can't imagine staying anywhere else. Our family frequently uses vrbo for our vacations and this home is the best we have stayed in. Many gathering spaces to accommodate varied age groups and multiple families. So nice to have a screened porch by the pool. Plentiful bath towels and extra blankets if needed! The steps inside are easily navigated and having access to the garage to enter through was great to have especially with loading and unloading. Only wish we could have stayed alot longer! 1 week is NOT nearly enough! Thank you Marty and Cindy for being so great to work with, hated we never crossed paths to meet in person, but getting and returning the keys was a breeze! Your driving directions were perfect and easy to follow!
