Sweeping oceanfront views and utter privacy are yours in our Crescent Cottage, nestled high on the dunes at the tip of the 35 foot dune. Enjoy unspoiled beaches and fabulous sunrises from our outdoor patio deck and huge screened porch!<br/><br/>Despite the 4 small bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms (with showers only), Crescent Cottage has a cozy bungalow feel, no doubt because of the painted wood frames outlining our floor-to-ceiling windows, the abundance of quilts and other handcrafted art, and the warm décor. Or perhaps it's the fun-and-funky mix of Vermont cabin furnishings with nautical yard art! (Be sure to pose the whole family in front of the cannon, rescued from nearby Matanzas River!) <br/><br/>The living room is the heart of our house, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Stretch out the couch or grab a rocking chair--this inviting area is ideal for family game night, long chats with old friends, and serene ocean-gazing. (Watch for the occasional school of dolphins just beyond the surf!)<br/><br/>And if you want to get a little closer to the natural paradise that is Crescent Beach, our big screened-in porch provides protection from the elements while letting in the sunshine and fresh sea breezes. With plenty of seating and enviable views, it's certain to be your go-to refuge whenever you can't be at the beach.<br/><br/>The 4 bedrooms are ideal either for a family with children or for a large group. Comfortably sleeping 8, each is distinctively decorated, and all are snug and restful. One room offers a queen bed, while the other 3 contain doubles. With plenty of windows and extra quilts piled high, you will be pampered whether you want to close the blinds and slumber or gaze out at the starry night sky! The cottage also has 2 full bathrooms with showers.<br/><br/>Flooded with sunlight, the kitchen is convenient and fully equipped with all the dishes, cookware, and gadgets you could ask for. A cheerful dining area is just a few steps away, simplifying mealtimes. Our fridge and cupboards have all the space you'll need to keep the gang stocked in refreshments, and our spacious countertops make preparing a seafood feast or other gourmet treat so easy! <br/><br/>But the best part of our oceanfront cottage is its surroundings. Conveniently located just ¼ mile south of the 206 Bridge, it is surrounded by vegetation that provides a natural privacy barrier, creating the illusion that you are alone on your private beach! A winding path leads over the dunes and down to the sugary sands. Along the way you just may glimpse a rabbit or gopher turtle! And if there is a birdwatcher in your group, polish the binoculars, grab the camera, and get ready -- you will see countless beautiful seabirds during your stay at Crescent Cottage!<br/><br/>Your time on this beach will be unforgettable. Stroll along the soft sands, collecting shells or simply letting the waves tickle your toes. Ride a bike along the water's edge, swim, surf, or fish without fighting the crowds -- this is your stretch of ocean, unrolling for you all day long! And when you return to Crescent Cottage, wash the sand away in our outdoor shower.<br/><br/>Should you care to venture beyond your private paradise, a wealth of attractions wait nearby. You can rent kayaks, fishing gear, and even boats to explore the inlets of Crescent Beach, or hike through state parks. Historic St. Augustine lies at your feet, and Disney World is just 90 minutes away! Yet when you come home to Crescent Cottage, you feel miles from the hustle and bustle of civilization.
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.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at Crescent Cottage,St. Augustine,FL. So much! Although it is small, there was plenty of room for our family. The views from the back porch and deck were absolutely beautiful!
My kids and I enjoyed our stay at Crescent Cottage immensely. It was cozy and comfortable with plenty of room to relax and enjoy the company and the view. We all want to return next year
Our stay in Crescent Cottage was a reunion of 4 senior sisters from all over the country. The cottage had everything and more that we could even dream of needing. Loved the quirky mix of antiques and beachy furnishings, the telescope, the numerous places to gather, and the oh-so-quiet location. Not so loved, but tolerated, were the spiders on the porch and the very large snake that seemed to live in the vegetation by the front sidewalk, causing us to use only the back door. VacationRentalPros was a very good company to work with and I hope to use them again.
Our week was a bit hot, humid and rainy but it was wonderful to be in a place where we could always see the beautiful Atlantic. We are seniors so we rented beach equipment from Big Bills and drove to the beach everyday but frequently walked the dunes back and forth, except for the oldest. We had the awesome experience of watching the full moon come out of the ocean and form a lovely moon path, nearly to our door. The vegetation around the cottage is natural which is lovely but a bit intimidating. On Thursday an exterminator came and he pointed out a big turtle home near the house. On Friday and Saturday we did see a couple of cockroaches and smaller bugs, maybe because of the treatment. Otherwise the house was bug free and clean
We loved our week on the beach. This little house was close to the beach, but it was also not too far from the town. Our only complaints would be that there wasn't a boardwalk over the dune. There also wasn't enough seating for eight.
The cottage was great 4 bedrooms 2 bath and the best screened in porch around,had everything you could ask for and close to town just love everything had family over it was great,we will be back for sure
