Why D. Acker chose Crescent Beach
Crescent Beach is world renowned for its fine, white, powdery sand and warm waters. St. Augustine is also known for it's amazing history and is the oldest European settlement in America.
What makes this House unique
Our beach home has upscale, uncluttered, sophisticated furnishings and decor from different parts of the world such as Indonesia, Philippines, China, Italy, USA and Africa. The minimalist style provides a serene and relaxing feel to the senses. The home exudes tranquility as the amazing views of the ocean are endless since the property is surrounded by balconies, decks and patios. Don't forget to grill your favorite food by the Tiki Bar as you sip your margarita or wine while watching the ocean waves rush back and forth to shore.

Very clean! Beautiful views of the beach. Great parking. We had a wonderful stay.
Fantastic house! Wonderful owner!
My family rented this home for a spring break getaway with our children and extended family. We had a wonderful experience and found the home to be ideal and the owner was genuine in wanting us to have an ideal stay.
The home is spacious and the layout is perfectly conducive to having large gatherings both inside and outside. The main deck is wonderful with plenty of room for sunbathing, grilling, lounging or having a large meal outside with family. The upper deck outside of the master is incredible with views that you have to see to believe. The private boardwalk that takes you straight to the beach is fantastic and the pool and hot tub were fun for everyone.
The views from both decks, the kitchen, living area, and master are spectacular. The home is very clean and it is obvious that the owner takes care to ensure that guests have what they need and can easily access and know how to use everything. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of dishes of all kinds, each bedroom has extra pillows and blankets, there is an abundance of towels, beach and pool toys and chairs, etc. The wireless internet worked perfectly and the bathrooms had plenty of hot water. The temperature in the home is easy to control and works well.
We were extremely pleased with the experience overall and will definitely be back again. The children (and there were a lot of them!) and the adults had a wonderful time. Thank you Ms. Acker for a wonderful vacation stay!
We rented this house for a girls getaway weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect! The house was roomy and very clean. The hot tub and pool was a big hit with my group. The owner was very friendly and called to make sure we didn't need anything. I would definitely recommend this house if you have a large group.
Intentionally misrepresented property
Oh where to start, the owner stopped by when we arrived. She was very nice. She explained that the hot tub (which is on a timer and heated with propane) takes a while to heat up. When it didn't heat up we let her know and she said she'd get someone there asap to look at it. She called the next day and said that since it was Sunday, someone would be there Monday afternoon. When no one arrived Monday I called the management company for an update. They told me they didn't know who was comming to look at it or any details as the owner set it up. I did ask since they are the management company who is responsible for the property why they wern't taking care of the issue since it is their job to do so. I was informed that they had to go with whatever the owner set up. Apparently there is no communication or at least no good communication between the owner and the company because they didn't know anything and quite frankly didn't seem to care one way or the other. Tuesday evening (our 4th day) a man came to look at it and said that he needed a part to fix it. On Thursday the management company called and said they were graciously going to refund us $200 of the thousands we paid for the inconvience. When I asked if it was going to be fixed she said she just didn't know. Needless to say we had no working hot tub during our stay. The pool is not heated. The pavers next to the pool are not only uneven (which you can't see in the pictures) they are slippery when wet. Not good for running children. The wooden portion of the deck is also uneven in spots and hasn't been sanded or sealed in years if at all. This goes for the top decks as well. I got a huge splinter walking on the top deck. There is also a large portion of railing missing next to the tiki bar (a pretty good drop) where they removed it so you could hop on down to get to the hammock tied to the trees there. This is just an accident waiting to happen. The walkway to the beach is completely uneven and although the part you walk on is composite decking the railings and benches are regular wood and like the deck haven't been sanded or sealed. But the most dangerous part is the railing itself. There is only a piece of wood going vertically all the way down on both sides in the middle of the railing. This walkway goes over a ravine like area. I was waiting for my 3 year old son to fall the dozen or so feet to the bottom. Now on to the house itself. (I'll continue in the next review)
Fantastic Beach Stay
We stayed for a long (4 day) weekend and rented the 3/2 option. It was incredible and we couldn't have asked for more. The Penthouse/Master alone makes the trip worthwhile. It is huge, with a private deck and a view of everything. The owner and management company were very nice and incredibly responsive. We had planned to go out a lot more, but found ourselves staying at the house and cooking in because of the atmosphere.
Great Beach Getaway!
This house more than lived up to expectations! We were greeted by a fruit bowl and a bottle of wine with a sweet note welcoming us to our oasis. The upper level was a roomy suite with a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean. There is a private walkway to the beach, and though it was a bit chilly while we were there, the hot tub warmed us up! The kitchen was plenty stocked with dishes and utensils enough for our needs. We even utilized the grill, which worked perfect for us! The house was beautiful and comfortably fit all 16 of us with beds to spare.
We would 100% come again. We were using the house for our staff retreat, and many of us were assessing it for personal use in the future! We will definitely come again!!

The bottom floor was quite and secluded, ideal for little ones taking naps. The main living space is awesome with the pool right there. You could be sitting inside and watching the kids in the pool.
