About the property

2 Bd/2 Ba Ground Floor Unit In Complex Closest To The Beach!


If you book Sat to Sat in April we will reduce the base rate to $799 (this discount is for nightly rate only-- normal taxes and fees will be added on). To get discount, use the book it now feature and check out at the normal rate it is showing you; it will look as though you've paid the full rate but before the manager accepts the booking and charges your card, we will take the base rate to a total of $799 isntead and send you a new breakdown of charges.

Come to the exclusive Crescent Beach on Anastasia Island! This is the premium place to be and the least crowded beach in Florida! You're close enough to the action, yet able to retreat to enjoy the ambiance of this pristine and historic island.

This totally renovated condo features two bedrooms, two baths, and has excellent views. Being on the first floor it is perfect for seniors or families with children as there are no stairs to climb and you can walk right off your private patio to the pool or beach.

Sip your morning coffee on the private balcony while incredible sunrises provided the backdrop for shrimp boats and porpoises. Our condo's panoramic view of the vast blue ocean and broad sandy beaches will keep you coming back here again and again. If you have never been to this island, you are in for a magnificent experience.

The master bedroom features a new king size bed, new flat screen panel LCD TV, and a beautiful beach vista as well. The guest bedroom has two brand new queen beds. The living room is very inviting with totally brand new furniture throughout and a 54" LCD TV. Don't worry if you forgot your laptop because there are two tablets with keyboards and wifi service is free.

This complex has a brand new sparkling pools overlooking the ocean and the tennis court is newly resurfaced being highly sought after by serious players. There is also a basket ball goal and tennis court for hours of play. The brand new fully equipped kitchen has everything one would need for a very enjoyable vacation.

Centrally located, our condo is a 15 minute drive to the world famous St Augustine area. The picturesque village of St Augustine is rich in history and is sure to satisfy all ages.

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

Crescent Beach on Anastasia Island is like a secret we hesitate to share, and yet can't keep to ourselves. The beaches are not very busy, and can sometimes even be vacant (where else does that happen?)! It's surrounded by entertainment and adventure and over 365 restaurants, and yet we are always content just breathing in all our condo and the ocean out the door has to offer!

What makes this condo unique

$40k renovation done recently, designed by an interior decorator with high end tastes and finishes throughout!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This condo was recently renovated and looks just as the pictures portray. The place was very comfortable for four adults. The place was very clean and was not cluttered with personal belongings. Kitchen was well equipped. The grounds were kept very nice and the pool and beach were great. Things you need to bring: beach towels, beach chairs, and hair dryer. Iron and ironing board were provided. Laundry for fee facility directly beside this condo. Consider bringing a travel coffee mug so that you can drink your coffee on the pool patio (no glass and food allowed). There is a beautiful upstairs patio with a great view right out the door. 2 grills are provided for cooking.

Family fun

  • 5 of 5

This was a great unit for our family of four to enjoy some time away from the busyness of life and enjoy each other's company. The unit was fully stocked for our cooking needs, it is close to the pool and beach access. Reservations were made with ease and Marisa communicated with us quickly and efficiently. We brought our kayaks and went out on some local adventures.

We saw sunrises and sunsets, full moon, lightning show, dolphins and shooting stars. We will save this VRBO number as one of our favorite and hope to visit Coquina again!

Great beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this unit. The Coquina was a lovely older style low rise complex, so it was quiet, and not overly crowded. Unit was beautifully decorated. The beach out front is fantastic and the unit had everything needed for our stay, plus I was able to rent some additional chairs through the cleaning woman, who has a variety of items available for rent. Many good restaurants are within easy driving distance. I hope to return to the Coquina in the future, as it provided everything I need in the way of quiet relaxation on the beach.

Wonderful Beach Experience

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from our stay at the Crescent Sandpiper in St. Augustine. It is easily the best condo we've ever stayed at there. We've been going every year for quite some time with my family, and this was the best stay yet. It's on the ground floor, which was great for carrying toddlers to the beach. Closest condo to the beach we've been to yet. The kitchen is prepped with everything necessary to prepare full meals. Linens were all clean and free of stains. The entire condo was immaculately clean. The ground around the property and pool were very clean and well kept as well. Short drive to historic St. Augustine. Marisa was wonderful to work with. We had to change our vacation dates because of graduation date changes. She was easy to work with and made our booking and stay perfect. By far the best condo and property manager we've worked with in the area. We will definitely be back next year!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time staying in the Conquina Condo's and once again we were not disappointed. The area is always clean, uncrowded and nicely situated very close to the beach. This condo is great and being a corner unit you get a great view of the ocean. This condo was very well equipped and our Rental Manager was always available should we have any issues. I would highly recommend this complex and we look forward to coming back next year.

Still The Best!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Coquina since the 90's during the off seasons (May or September/October) Always pleasant, delightful, uncrowded and welcoming. And always up to date. Geoff was most helpful, and the unit we stayed in this time (The former Resident Managers unit)has been refitted fabulously. Lots of good quality equipment and furnishings, Look forward to our next visit!!
