Perhaps the most popular unit on Crescent Beach, with only 15 vacant days in 2014 and 2015 COMBINED! Book early and book fast to get the BEST view on the beach! As 1 of only 2 end units in the complex closest to the beach, totally remodeled and completed in 2016—this is a premiere luxury condo you’ll want to rush to get!
Top three reasons this condo has some of the best occupancy rates on all of Crescent Beach:
1. BEST VIEWS:
That’s a bold claim, how can we make it? Well, no condo or home on Crescent Beach is closer to the ocean than this unit! We are an upstairs end unit in the complex closest to the beach, so your views here are unobstructed by tall grassy dunes or long wooden boardwalks blocking the magnificent seascape out your window. Your beach views stretch for miles in both directions. Additionally, only the end units have an extra wall of windows in the living room and master bedroom, bringing those endless beach views right into your unit. It’s not just poetic prose when we say you could forget you’re on land when you sleep at night; come experience laying down on the soft king bed and seeing nothing but ocean waves out your window, feeling the cool breezes, inhaling the salty ocean scents, and hearing only the methodic music of rolling waves out your windows, literally making you feel as though you are on your own personal yacht out at sea. In the morning make sure to get up early because you won’t want to miss a sunrise in this condo and if you don’t want to go out, the sunrise will come to you from the best seat in the house—a chaise lounge surrounded by two walls of windows, or lay in bed and watch your room turn orange from the glow of sunrise. A must-do during your stay is to schedule plenty of time on the chaise watching pelicans dive into the ocean, turtles poke their heads out of the sand dunes, dolphins jump in the waves, and boats lazily sailing by! In fact, some of your best pictures of the beach will be taken from the comfort of this soft chaise lounge and nobody will know you weren’t standing on the sand!
2. CLOSEST TO THE BEACH:
Local restrictions mandated condos built after our complexes to build a certain distance away from the sand dunes. Thus, in other rentals what separates you from the very reason you’re renting here (the ocean), is a long boardwalk. Our “boardwalk” is five steps off the pool deck! If you’re coming for the beach, there is no better complex to stay in to put you footsteps away from your true destination. Additionally because our unit is on the end, we are the closest unit to the beach, hands down; in fact, you’re so close, that at high tide you could throw a rock out the window and hit waves!
3. BEAUTIFUL BEACHY CHIC COTTAGE RETREAT:
The design of this condo was summoned by the seascape and ocean hues out your window bringing indoors the calming color palette of the beach. Beautiful detail work and accessories throughout force this unit to stand out, but not steal the real show happening out your expansive windows. In addition you will find everything you need to enjoy the indoors including a big screen TV w/ high definition cable service & DVR (so you can record your favorite shows and still make the best show-- watching the moon rise out of the ocean), DVD player, TV in the master suite and second bedroom and free private WIFI. All the comforts of home will tempt you to stay indoors in this beautifully designed and comfortably decorated condo, but we know, the ocean call is too loud to ignore.
Recent renovations include:
-New tile flooring that looks like hardwood laid in herringbone pattern
-Completely remodeled kitchen with custom made cabinets, including custom paneled refrigerator, galley kitchen style so you have more room for prep, new appliances, stunning quartz countertops that mirrors the look of the sand outside, and high-end glass tile backsplash
-Main floor bathroom totally renovated with new vanity and gorgeous tile shower with glass tile accents
-Brand new contemporary master bedroom set with large drawers under king bed for storage
-Brand new sitting chair in master bedroom and big screen HDTV mounted on wall
-New comforters in master bedroom and second bedroom
Could you ask for a better three reasons to book this unit today? Perhaps you need an invitation….
We invite you to…
Bathe in breathtaking sunrises and sunsets from the comfort of your living room,
Travel only a few steps so you can walk for miles scavenging seashells on a pristine beach, and
Forget you’re on land as you’re lulled to sleep by waves crashing mere feet from your bedroom window.
We invite you to…
Imagine the days of Ponce de Leon as you discover the charming city of nearby St. Augustine,
Break away from tourist attractions and explore the way old Florida used to be, and
Taste the best the south has to offer from smoky barbeque to melt in your mouth gourmet and everything delicious in between.
We invite sun seekers, adventure cravers, and those who have a love affair with the ocean. Whether it be for escape or adventure, or a little of both, we invite you to stay in our beachy chic condo as a base for tranquility and exploration of Crescent Beach on Anastasia Island and the hundreds of attractions nearby.
My mother grew up in Florida and then moved out west to college. While I was born and raised in the west, each year as a child we would pack into the car and drive across the country to spend the summer in Florida. While I live in the west also, my heart still lives in Florida, and several times a year, I jump on a plane to 'go home.'
We have owned this unit for almost 20 years and have spent over a hundred thousand dollars in remodeling and decorating since! In that time our four children married and started families of their own. Now we enjoy bringing them and our six grandchildren to hunt for sea shells and to enjoy 'our beach.'
In addition to bringing our family each year, we bring our friends to enjoy what we lovingly call 'our little piece of paradise.' We invite you to come as friends and see why once you stay on Anastasia Island in our condo, your heart never really leaves, wherever you go home to!
Crescent Beach on Anastasia Island is like a secret we hesitate to share, and yet can't keep to ourselves. The beaches are not very busy, and can sometimes even be vacant (where else does that happen?)! It's surrounded by entertainment and adventure, and yet we are always content just breathing in all our condo and the ocean out the door has to offer!
Perhaps the most popular unit on Crescent Beach, with only 15 vacant days in 2014 and 2015 COMBINED! Book early and book fast to get the BEST view and location on the beach, literally a stone's throw from the waves at high tide!
This condo has the best view and decor! We love the new remodel upstairs! The white decor makes for the perfect clean, beachy feel! We've been staying in this condo for 3 years now, which is really too small for my family now, but we love this condo so much that we just can't give it up! This unit is on the end, therefore easy access to the pool/beach and amazing views!!
We stayed in a wonderful unit - very clean. The property was super for our large group. Even between 2 buildings we were able to easily meet - swim - grill out. The grill out area above was excellent and fun in the evening.. The courts were well maintained and I had a coach come to them. Everything was wonderful. We enjoyed our unit and its location right on top of the beach.
My only issue in our unit was that many units had washer/dryer and that was a bit difficult - especially for a week. This was disclosed to me, but was hard with sand etc.. Also, I didn't understand the unit set-up and the upstairs is 2 lovely bedrooms - one master and the one with 2 queens, both of which were well appointed, but shared a smaller sized bathroom. I dont really consider it a master without its own bathroom and didn't get that...though again disclosed - but when seeing, its smaller than expected - overall the whole unit.. perhaps being a corner -- It felt much tighter than the first for plans.. Pllus the small bath downstairs is very small!!! ( As I contractor, I dreamt of taking the closet out and putting it against the 1 empty wall and adding a sink/vanity/laundry for master which could easily be done as both upstairs rooms are large and the unit is well done otherwise. ) So I would stay there again, because its location is perfect, but it is a tinier unit. I feel 3 kids and 2 adults would be the max I would want. If you have that and are okay with washer/dryer and shared bath, then this really is perfect unit and excellent complex. My family had 8 other units and all had great views and a wonderful time. Marissa was also excellent accommodating our set - up -- unlike the woman at the front desk who is the building's office - she was lazy but luckily we went thru Marissa..
Our stay at B214 Coquina Crescent Beach was absolutely perfect in every way!
The Grover's have spared no detail in decorating this stunningly beautiful, comfortable, ultra clean, amenity-filled beach/ocean-side condo. We chose to have our honeymoon trip paired with the PGA Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass, Beach Time, Historical Sightseeing and so much more. We will never forget our first trip to St. Augustine - it's a magical city for sure! The condo is an end unit that has two stories, with the bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom has an incredibly comfortable king-size bed and is surrounded by windows that provide the most gorgeous view of the ocean and beach. After spending the first few days of our honeymoon attending the PGA Players Tournament, playing golf at phenomenal courses such as The Bear & The King, touring the historical sights, eating entirely too many wonderful meals, walking for miles and miles on the beautiful almost deserted beaches, etc., we turned the off the A.C. at night, opened the windows and were lulled asleep by the crashing sounds of the ocean. The beach is only a few footsteps away - the sunrise and sunset walks were amazing. This condo has it all...every amenity that anyone could ever hope for, stunning decor, ultra comfy bed, uncrowded beaches, quiet neighbors, awesome pool, great BBQ grilling area, etc., etc., etc., The people in St. Augustine and Crescent Beach were incredibly friendly and exuded a true Southern Charm. We have stayed in quite a few VRBO Condos/Homes and this one is certainly at the top of our favorites list. We are definitely coming back ASAP, unless this review is so helpful that it makes it tough to get a reservation. A very special thank you to Marisa for ensuring every detail of our trip was taken care of and easy to plan. Our honeymoon at B214 Coquina will be one that we will never forget.

If you are a neat freak like we are, this condominium is for you. It has the best view of the ocean of all rentals we have stayed in. We love to sit on the balcony and watch the waves and ooh and aah as the dolphins swim by. Great place for your vacation stay!
Manager of unit is the best ever to work with. Any issue that might arise is quickly resolved to your satisfaction.
We highly recommend this place to stay.
This is the best condominium out of all the other fine units to stay in at Coquina.
Coquina is also by far the best complex for access to Cresent Beach.
This was our third year in a row and second in this unit.
We will most definitely be coming back for years to come.

World famous golf courses, historical sites, sports and recreational opportunities, shopping, theater, and more restaurants that you could eat at if you chose a different one each day of the year!!!

The cobblestone streets are quaint and attract thousands of visitors a year both for it's rich history as well as it's hundreds of different entertainment and recreational opportunities. So whether you enjoy adventure, history, wining and dining, or spend all your time on this quiet island and it's pristine beaches-- you won't run out of things to do! For more specific suggestions, please send me an email or call. I will send you a guide of 30 things to do in under 30 minutes away that we and our renters have found to do that we suggest!
