VERY PRIVATE, A+ BEST ON CRESCENT BEACH, DELUXE!

Crescent Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR / 4 BA, Sleeps 6

Location, location, location, says it all. You will not find another listing this PRIVATE & QUIET on the ocean. No condo hallways, no strangers or neighbors you can hear. This house has a private walkway to spectacular Crescent Beach. You won't even see another person -- unless you want to! Then hit the beach for a swim or a walk (you can go for miles), there are restaurants and bars within walking distance, but once you're at the house you would never know it.

Compared to other houses on Crescent Beach, this is the true getaway!

If you want, jump in the car and the world of zoo's, museums, architecture and history is yours. Dozens of parks and ecological destinations within miles. Rent a bike, board, horse or a kayak and see things from yet another angle-- but then again, it's not easy to leave that deck!

Perfect house for the Big Chill week, a family reunion, a girls get away OR a romantic honeymoon or anniversary!

DAY TIME AIR TEMPS:

70's-- Feb-Apr, Nov.

80's-- May-Oct.

We bought this home as a retirement property and haven't retired yet!!!! Our loss can be your gain. We have lived in NYC for 35 years and this is the only spot we could imagine giving up our beloved city for.

Ann Shakeshaft purchased this house in 2012

We love to walk the beach, shelling and fishing along the way. Great food, biking, kayaking and yoga close by to keep us busy.

We are 'house people', we like to fiddle and fix and decorate. This house, aside from being on an amazing beach is very private and we have started to bring in our antiques-- making it a bit more elegant than most rental beach houses.

We also cook, and this house has a fantastic kitchen to make great meals-- especially for a number of cooks to do their thing all at once. Buy (or catch) the fresh fish and grill it on the deck or in one of two ovens and wash it down with all the wine you can fit into the separate wine fridge-- then walk it out to the deck for a moonlit dinner!

The privacy is really the thing that sets our house apart from any other rental on Crescent Beach. You are not dealing with other condo renters, or even visible neighbors, this is one of a kind.

The wildlife on our little island is impressive, from the birds that fly along the beach and nest in the spring, to the dolphins and whales that you will see passing by or the turtles that nest on the beach and live in the dunes, its like living in a ecological park.

If you get tired of watching from the house the area is covered with many equally animal full parks and beaches. The Intracoastal waterway is just behind us and that has a completely different vibe-- rent a kayak and check it out when you get sick of surfing, fishing and shelling on the beach.

THE SETTING IS SUPERB

  • 4 of 5
By far, the most special thing about this house is it's setting. Difficult to see from the photos, and may be hard to describe, but here goes: The house sits high up on a dune, with the 2nd floor and that large deck becoming the "ground" floor. (It's an "upside-down" house, all public rooms on top floor.) From that level, looking out to the water, a gully of dunes and natural habitat dips down and rises again to a dune (at about the same level) which is the back border to the beach.

So in a sense you're looking over the top of that 2nd dune, right out to the surf, completely obscuring the strip of public beach below. Ta-Da ... that's where the incredible sense of privacy comes in ... you don't see any beach activity, just right out into the surf.

This area, specifically St Augustine and Palm Coast, is my favourite part of Florida and this house is a lovely alternative to all the condos and apartments in the rental market.

BREATHTAKING VIEWS THROUGHOUT!

  • 5 of 5
I must say that the pics on the web do not even come close to a true representation of this beautiful home. So spacious and tastefully decorated. I am enjoying the couch, the serene views and getting everything put away today at a gradual pace. Spoke to Marti and she offered her services whenever needed.
The bed is so comfortable and bedding/linens very nice. Those details mean a great deal to me and are so appreciated. Watching the shrimp boats and dolphins playing is a great feature as well as the nice deck and furniture. We have visited the South Beach Grill and the shrimp was delicious! A great place to visit that is truly in walking distance.
The owner has been extremely helpful and accommodating while setting up the visit.
"A+, Best on the Beach" is an accurate rating for this rental!

NICE PRIVATE HOUSE WITH GREAT BEACH LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This house is in a great spot on the beach with privacy! However, you are close enough to others that you don't feel secluded from the action. It is also a close 10-15 minute drive to many activities in St. Augustine...we parasailed, rode horseback on the beach, and did the zipline obstacle at the allilgator farm - which we voted as the family favorite activity! We saw a lot of wildlife - turtles in the dunes right by the house, dolphins in the ocean infront of the house, pelicans, and a mother green sea turtle who just laid her eggs on the beach! Our three teenagers also could not get enough of the ocean and the beautiful beach! The house has a lot of room and the owner and manager always returned calls/emails with answers to our questions. Hot water and oven had issues, but were addressed immediately. We aren't picky or complainers so this didn't bother us...and we went by a saying the owners had on a plaque there....Don't be crabby you're at the beach :) I would recommend this place to others and can hopefully return there someday!

GIRLFRIENDS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
This beach home is very nice! There is plenty of room for 8 people. We grilled steaks at the house and also went to the South Beach Grill that was very good (we walked to the restaurant). Like the description shows, the home is not for small children or people that arent able to navigate stairs. The beach was very clean and just a short walk down the private boardwalk from the home. I would definitely recommend this home! The owner is very easy to work with.

Spectacular Crescent Beach is just off your very private deck and out your window. All you hear is the roll of the waves as you sit watching dolphin, whale and pelicans glide by.

Although private, this house is a few minutes walk to a couple of bars and restaurants most of which serve delicious seafood and refreshing drinks while you soak up the low-key beach vibe.

St. Augustine is one of the most beautiful cities in the USA and and the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement and port in the continental United States. Old world charm, beautiful architecture combined with restaurants, museums, shopping and a very comfortable temperature year round equal a vacation paradise.

Notes:
The house is built into a sand dune and the views are at the top, there are a number of staircases to make all of the areas accessible. For this reason it is not a good house for very young, old or physically handicapped individuals. Sorry. The house is not childproofed.
