About JG McDaniel
My home in South Crescent Beach, St. Augustine is unique in every way and has hosted writers, artists, educators, and visitors from many countries. Designers from Mattel spent 10 days at Turtle Dunes going to the Daytona 500 by day, and designing toy cars at night. One of the designers left a Mattel coffee mug that has been in the house for 20 years. There is nothing ordinary about 'Turtle Dunes'. A very special, restful, and completely unique home.
JG McDaniel purchased this House in 1991
Why JG McDaniel chose Crescent Beach
Love at first sight. Great energy. You will see. Folks have to return. Can't help themselves. Take a look at visitor comments.
What makes this House unique
Hard to explain and the house just has good energy. A very unique location among N. Florida's most prestigious and elaborate ocean front homes.

Quiet and Peaceful
Turtle Dunes is truly a beautiful home! There are original pieces of art which make it interesting too. The beach is very private, clean and beautiful which is the best part. The host was very friendly and provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend Turtle Dunes!
We loved it!!
This house is absolutely lovely! It is decorated beautifully and the layout is very well thought out for privacy and access from the outdoors preventing unnecessary cleaning. Even though it rained most of our stay, the covered outdoor seating enabled us to still be able to enjoy the views and storm watching. Will definitely be planning to return. Thank you so much for sharing your home!
You are so kind esp given the start of your trip. Come back and I would be happy to comp you a couple of days. You are the perfect houseguest!
Well maintained, super clean.
Host was fantastic. Beach was beautiful. Great neighbors, QUIET.PRIVATE.
Didn't want to leave
This is such a nice place. Great ocean views and a private pool area. Listen to the ocean off the deck. The sandy path to beach walkover is tranquil. Natural setting to see the turtles and pelicans so peaceful. The area is filled with wonderful restaurants, historic St.. Augustine and Anastasia State Park. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation this is definitely the place.
Thank you so much J.G. McDaniel for opening your home to us.

Home away from home.
This house is a hidden gem on the beach. The house is furnished comfortably with everything you need. Beds are very comfy too. TVs with cable in very room and the kitchen has everything you need. When we arrived the house was spotless clean. The owner is pleasant and goes over and above to ensure your comfort. It is steps away from a private beach. We had some wildlife around the house. A turtle’s nest (which on occasion the little guy popped out his head) a bunny was also hopping around in the brush.
There is also a lovely pool on the property but the water was to chilly to swim. But it sure was inviting!!!
The town of St Augustine is a 20 minute, easy drive away. We went on several ghost tours and sightseeing tours. Some restaurants worth mentioning are Mango Mango, Harry’s and Meehan’s.
Even though we ate out, the House was so comfortable we would have been fine never leaving it.
We plan on returning next year and probably many times after that.
Thank you for sharing this little gem with us!
Lovely visitors. Perfect houseguests. I am so fortunate and grateful. Come back soon and often.
The house was beautiful and the weather cooperated
The house was spotless but I had a pool and it was right on the ocean. Some of the area around was a little beat up due to the storm but our owner took care of his property and we had a great time
10 minutes to downtown St. Aug. About an hour, fifteen minutes from Disney. 5 minutes from Marineland, first aquarium in FL.
