Facing the shores of Crescent Beach with its back to the Intracoastal Waterway, Amazing Grace is a huge, luxuriously appointed Mediterranean-style house. Watch the sun rise from the front deck and set from the back deck at our magnificent oceanfront house! And, the house has an elevator and high-speed wifi inside. And as of January 1, 2012, Amazing Grace has a new private heated pool!<br/><br/>Set back from a beautifully landscaped, sloping garden and with a new private pool, Amazing Grace greets you with a formal entry set in tile with a decorative mosaic. You have your choice of stairs or an elevator to transport you to the second floor, where a huge living and family room area awaits, replete with ocean views and ultra-comfortable couches and chairs. Build a fire in the coral fireplace or just enjoy the game on our LCD TV between glimpses of the blue Atlantic out the windows!<br/><br/>Or, if you're eager to get the gang moving, propose a game of billiards! We have a lovely game room, also surrounded by ocean views, with a slightly smaller pool table just waiting for some action. The table swivels to reveal an air hockey table on the other side. There is also a full sized ping pong table in the garage!<br/><br/>Our kitchen and dining areas may just inspire you to prepare a feast . . . but even if nothing more time-consuming than takeout is on the menu, you'll enjoy serving it from our gracious wood-and-tile kitchen. It's got full-sized appliances, a walk-in pantry, and all the time-saving gadgets you could desire, plus a full complement of cookware, dishes, and utensils. <br/><br/>Dine in the sun-washed room with tile floors and a formal table for 8. Spacious and restful, this is a room to linger in long after the food is gone and the wine poured. Let the outside light illuminate the room as long as possible, then turn on the soft modern chandelier and enjoy a long discussion or break out the board games. <br/><br/>The master bedroom is upstairs, an enormous room with a ultra-comfortable king-sized bed, HD TV, and a pair of easy chairs facing the beautiful picture windows. The views are amazing at any time of day, and one morning you may just have to watch the sunrise from the comfort of your bed!<br/><br/>An en-suite master bathroom adjoins the bedroom, with a Jacuzzi tub as well as a shower. The windows are opaque for privacy, but light still shines through, bathing the area in a golden haze. What a relaxing way to wake up or wind down!<br/><br/>There are 3 more bedrooms on the first floor, plus another bathroom and two sleeper sofas to accommodate up to 4 extra guests in addition to the 8 for whom there are beds. The first bedroom contains a king bed and HDTV, plus plenty of bureau and closet space. The 2nd bedroom also boasts a king bed (who wants to share anything less?!), while the 3rd contains two twins with nice large windows and lots of floor space. A 2nd full bathroom is convenient to the bedrooms on this floor, and a washer and dryer are tucked away for loads of towels and swimsuits!<br/><br/>But the inside of Amazing Grace is just the beginning of its charms. A large front deck looks directly out at the beach, while a back deck offers great views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Our two-car garage keeps your vehicles out of the punishing sun, and our private railed walkway leads you over the dunes and onto the beach. There is even an outside shower.<br/><br/>And there more fun begins! Crescent Beach is a lovely stretch of coastline, with many treasures for beachcombers, soft sands for digging and playing, and rolling waves. Try a bit of fishing in the surf, boogie-board the waves, watch the sunrise, and sunbathe on the sand. Just a few minutes in the opposite direction is the Intracoastal Waterway, with a maze of inlets and fantastic hiking and nature trails. Perfect for watercrafts.<br/><br/>The Crescent Beach neighborhood is a beloved part of Florida, with many locals. With old St. Augustine just up the coast, there is always plenty to see and do. So come stay at Amazing Grace soon, for a gala family event or a private getaway.
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
We truly enjoyed our time at this lovely residence. Great beach, lovely home and pool and we enjoyed the foosball, pooltable and air hockey. Clean and well equipped. Pool was small but enjoyable. Highly recommend staying here.
We were there to celebrate three big milestones this year - my husband's 50th birthday, our 25th wedding anniversary, and my Dad's 80th birthday. We had 10 people total - my family of 4, my sister's family of 4, and my parents. We all fit just fine in this beautiful house! The downstairs had just been redone to now include 3 full baths, and 2 bedrooms - 1 with a King Bed, and 1 with a King Bed and 2 twin bunk beds. The upstairs level includes a master with a King Bed and attached big bathroom, plus two other fold out couches - one in the living room and one in the family room. There is also a 1/2 bath on this upper level. Favorite features of this home - located right on the beautiful & peaceful white sands of Crescent Beach, heated private pool, elevator, wonderful master suite and bathroom, 2 walk-in closets in master, fully equipped kitchen, wonderful ocean and intercoastal waterway views, close to St. Augustine, very big family and living room with comfy seating, tv's and ceiling fans in each bedroom, laundry room, games - ping pong, foosball, and air hockey/pool table. GREAT PLACE!
Great experience you have the best of both worlds the beach and your own private pool.The home was big and filled with all amenities needed to have a nice vacation
Amazing Grace was the perfect weeklong getaway location. The house was very clean and inviting when we arrived. My family and friends enjoyed each and every day of our vacation. It was so wonderful having the beach just yards away from the back of the house and the refreshing pool in the front. The elevator helped with those of us that couldn't handle the stairs. There were plenty of linens for all, and the washer and dryer on property was so convenient. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!
My family (parents, my brother and his family, and my husband and 2 little kids)spent a week at Amazing Grace. We had a great vacation and absolutely loved the location. It was so nice and convenient to be able to go back and forth to the beach and pool each day. If you are looking for a secluded beach this is the place for you! I only wish the deck had a better view (it's on the side. The layout of the house did not affect our stay, but the downstairs layout is a little awkward. You have to walk through the middle bedroom (twin beds) to use the restroom. There is no privacy. In my opinion, the house is a little dated and a few minor improvements would make a big difference. We had a great time and Crescent Beach is beautiful.
