BEAUTIFUL OCEAN VIEWS FROM CRESCENT BEACH LOOKOUT-OCEAN SIDE GAZEBO-NO FEES!!

Crescent Beach House Rental Photos and Description

New Decks and Exterior! 4 Bedrooms (Sleeps 10)

Crescent Beach Lookout has amazing views! Crescent Beach Lookout sits high on beautiful Crescent Beach dunes, about 1.5 miles south of the 206 Bridge. It is hidden from A1A by its natural landscape, very private. The neighbors on the north and south sides are minimized by all the natural vegetation. Built for views, the rooms have walls of glass that overlook the Atlantic Ocean. All the upstairs sliders and windows are new and there is a new beach walkover. All the decks, railings and all exterior finishes were recently rebuilt.

This 4-bedroom vacation rental sits high on a sand dune and overlooks Crescent Beach and miles of ocean beyond.

This is an architecturally important beach house. Designed by renowned Gainesville architect Harry Merritt, this house is a true one-off and rewards the observant. A landmark property on Crescent Beach, you’ll be able to spot home even when out on beach walks. Ocean views here mean full panoramic paintings. Merritt’s design maximizes the home’s location and its walls of floor-to-ceiling glass bring the ocean to you.

Pack up the kids, dogs and your mother-in-law, to arrive at The Lookout. With four bedrooms and two and a half baths, you can easily divide your time as you wish - getting both family time and individual relaxation all in one place.

A perfect ‘gathering’ house, it boasts large open areas on both the first and second floors. ‘Upside-down’ in layout, the kitchen and living rooms are upstairs to maximize the views in the places you spend the most time. An open-plan kitchen and dining area is ideal for a large group on vacation, when ‘living to eat’ takes on new meaning.

The large, white modern kitchen with a huge center island makes light work of any menu you tackle. A long dining table for 8 makes big meals easy.

The decor here is inviting and casual. Board shorts and bare feet are the dress code. Enjoy either morning coffee or a sunset gin and tonic from the patio.

Entertainment options include LCD TVs and 50 mbps wireless internet. There’s a guest suite downstairs with its own bathroom and living area. This is an ideal suite for a small family or another couple.

Visit your master suite to find a king-sized bed, even better than you imagined. With east-to-west aspects, it’s got the best views of all. Choose between two balconies, one oceanfront and one to watch the sunset.

Two further guest bedrooms offer the choice of an ocean or inter-coastal view. The former has a double bed while the latter has a queen. Awake in either to see palm trees peeking over the top of a private balcony, with gorgeous sparkling water views beyond.

When out and about, enjoy Crescent Beach’s many charms including beach-combing, diving, fishing and countless other water-sports. Located on wildlife refuge Anastasia Island, the beaches remain pristine and are home to many of Florida’s most beloved creatures.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time vacationing in Florida. We are beach lovers, so really enjoyed the awesome views and close proximity to the beach. The house has a great set up for several family units to enjoy their privacy as well as together time. We spent a lot of time at the beach swimming, boogie boarding, collecting shells, and just relaxing. It was enjoying to be able to watch the lightening storms from the safety of the gazebo and back deck. The dolphins put on afternoon shows for us several of the days. The house was clean and well stocked. There were plenty of linens provided for 7 people (kitchen towels, bath towels, beach towels, pillows, sheets, blankets). Boogie boards and beach chairs are among the many items provided for beach enjoyment.
Everything we wanted to do was within a reasonable travel distance. We checked out several ice cream shops, and a few local restaurants. Some of our party ventured to Universal Studios for the day. We also went to Daytona to check out Bubba Gump's restaurant.

Even Better than We Expected!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house 5 yrs ago, so we knew what to expect. However, we were pleasantly surprised at the improvements the new owners have made. The outside deck space and outside shower are wonderful. Great house if traveling with your pets, and there's lots of space to spread out. This is the most well-stocked house we've found in the Crescent Beach area...from the linens to the pots and pans and even cleaning supplies. This was the perfect house for us, and we will definitely rent again. A few tips if you're considering this home: If you're looking for a true beach vacation, this is the place. If you're looking for 10 people to lounge and watch TV together, it's not the place. The master bedroom is large and comfortable. The other 2 bedrooms upstairs are very small, but also comfortable. The master bath is just ok. The 2nd bathroom upstairs is a very tiny half bath. The best bathroom/shower in the house is downstairs. The kitchen is large and user-friendly. Upstairs living area is small and no TV. Large TV downstairs. Two full beds in the downstairs bedroom. Boardwalk to the beach all the way to the last dune which new and not currently shown in the photos. Lots of great outdoor porch space. Great place to sit outside and enjoy the early evening breeze while having a cocktail. The management was great to deal with. Only a phone call away if we needed something, but otherwise gave us our privacy. This home is in a great location. If you enjoy the quietness of Crescent Beach, spend a lot of time outdoors, and like to cook most of your meals, you'll love this place. Great restaurants are within a 5-10 min drive. Grocery stores about 10 mins north. However, there are convenience stores and a very well stocked Dollar General very close by. There's a public boat ramp 2 blocks away on the river, however there's not much room for boat parking at the house. If you have a boat, you can pay a small fee to park it at devil's elbow fish camp just down the street. Thanks so much, Betty, for a great vacation!

Everything we expected, and more

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay in this house. Our prior stay was 5 years ago (previous ownership). Although the home was very nice on our first stay, we were pleasantly surprised by the improvements that have been made by the current owners. We've been renting at Crescent Beach for 18 years, and I can say that this home is the most well stocked of anything we've rented. There was plenty of laundry soap, hand soap, dish soap, etc. They even supplied starters of shampoo, conditioner, and bath soap. Cleaning supplies that are furnished were very helpful including 3 brooms and 2 vacuums. We've stayed in places where they didn't even supply a broom. Let's face it...when you're at the beach, you need to be able to sweep up the sand off the floor! The kitchen is very well stocked with dishes, utensils, and quality cookware. The plumber came and repaired the upstairs shower during our stay (mentioned in previous user's review). The outdoor hot shower is a plus! You can't beat the views from this beach house. The porches are amazing, and the new beach walkway is a nice improvement. We will definitely stay here again!

Agreeable rental

  • 2 of 5
We very much enjoyed the close proximity to the beautiful, clean beach. That was absolutely the best thing about this rental. However, we had issues with a number of simple items in the house itself. Hot showers with a strong flow are crucial for most people. The upstairs shower has a bizarre diversion system that results in a weak flow from the shower head and a great deal of lost water at your feet. A simple plumbing fix would solve this problem.

There are televisions in the master and downstairs. However, a television in the main living area would be most appreciated. We wanted to listen to the local news and get weather. It's inconvenient to sit downstairs or in the master to get this information.

A light over the dining room table is sorely missing. An early riser simply can't read the paper sitting at that table, and it's too dark in the room in the evening as well.

We tried to watch a Redbox movie on the DVD player downstairs. It doesn't work. We had to connect our laptop computer to the television to watch a movie.

The simple addition of paper products would have been nice, as well as cleaning solutions - dish soap and clothes soap were both missing. I recommend purchasing paper napkins at the dollar store so these are available for renters. Liquid dish soap and clothes soap are also reasonable expectations for guests to have. We had to purchase all of these.

We were surprised to have to contact the manager to get the lock code. That is something that should happen on the management side of things. Those sorts of missteps make the tenant worry that there has been a error in the rental dates or cost.

So while the house itself has pluses, the missing niceties make this rental less than a bargain, and a bit uncomfortable. Adjust the plumbing, add a dining room table light, move a tv into the upstairs living space, replace the DVD player, and add some basic service items like paper napkins, dish soap, and clothes soap. Your future renters will appreciate it. We won't be among them though.

Owner's Response: We have replaced the staging company as we expect all of the supplies we provide to be out and ready for our guests. Keycodes and address are always sent prior to the guest stay. If anything is not satisfactory, our full-time manager, Betty, is available and her mobile phone number is supplied after booking. We supply paper products, soap, shampoo, conditioner, dish detergent, washing detergent, dishwasher detergent, linens, towels, beach towels, pots, pans, dishes, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, beach toys, highest speed Comcast internet available, Apple TV, 2 flat screen TV's and grill. We have replaced all decks, siding, railing, added a new beach walk and are replacing all sliding glass doors to further enhance our guests comfort. We consider all suggestions, readily make changes and updates when needed, and appreciate feedback. We hope all our guests enjoy the house and the amazing natural beauty that surrounds it as much as we do. The view from the living/kitchen area in Crescent Beach Lookout is where we watch the sunrise over the ocean, natural dunes and palms through the ceiling to floor wall of glass. The glorious sunset over the intracoastal can be seen from the same spot. Have a great summer!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5
Staying at this beach house added so much to our vacation. The two levels in the house make it ideal for extended families or a group of people. It is literally steps away from an amazing beach. I could not have asked for more in a beach house! It is such an open house with multiple balconies. The house seems like it is tailored to highlight the gorgeous nature that surrounds it. The property was clean and obviously well cared for. To top everything off, the manager is super friendly and helpful too. Thank you for this amazing and perfect experience!

Fantastic week at the beach

  • 5 of 5
This house is a great place for a family to stay in Crescent. Location is great; close to restaurants, attractions, and the St. Augustine historic area. The beach in front of the house is fairly private with beautiful sunrises seen from most of the rooms in this 2 story house. It was a real treat to stand in the kitchen and be able to see boats in the Intercostal waterway and hear and see the ocean at the same time. The house is furnished and maintained with everything you need for your stay. Loved sitting on any of the 3 beach facing decks on the house or relaxing in the Gazebo that is 1/2 way down the deck to the beach. Everything is accessed by stairs so you've got to be able to handle them. Really looking forward to our next stay at the Lookout!!!
