About the property

Ground floor unit in the complex closest to the beach! NO boardwalk! 2 bd/ 2 ba


Come to this fabulous condo and replenish yourself on island itinerary: Relax… Eat… Explore…then rest from a hard day at the beach. Tomorrow, repeat. In this cozy unhurried space of the world, think less crowds and more peace and quiet. Think warmer weather, striking sunsets, and strolling down miles of abandoned beach. You won’t be in any rush to go home from this island paradise, rather, you’ll long to come back to this peaceful retreat for more reasons than one, but here are a few...

1. The beach’s sand and the pool’s cool waters are, 16 seconds from your back door:

Easy access out your back door makes for mere steps away from the pool deck and beach. This unit is conveniently located just steps from one of the only complexes on this beach that have their pool deck right off the beach! Other complexes’ pools are in the middle or at the front of the complex with no views of the beach. In our complex, if you don’t want to mess with the sand and changing tides, lay out on the pool deck and feel like you’re on the beach since you’re only steps away!

In addition, we are the CLOSEST COMPLEX TO THE BEACH! Restrictions prevented other complexes from building as close to the sand dunes as we are, so we are one of only two complexes on this beach that don’t have a long boardwalk to the beach...again, just steps off the pool deck till your feet hit sand!

2. This is a High Demand Ground Floor Unit:

(A)- No stairs to battle with. Pull up five steps from your front door and unload your luggage, this unit won’t have you battling with stairs to unpack your bags and groceries.

(B)- Fast access to the beach and pool. In upstairs units to reach the pool or beach you walk down stairs and around the complex, in this unit, you open your back door and make a mad dash for the water! Perfect unit for kids, as there is green grass out your back door to play on, and kids can easily run from the pool back to the unit to get a drink, go to the bathroom, etc. with you watching them from the pool deck. Note: there is a fence surrounding the pool so young kids cannot just walk out the back door and wander into the pool area.

(C)- Master bathroom in the Master Bedroom (hard to find). We have found so many travelers are coming with friends, extended family, or children, and couples want to have their own bathroom-- not share one. Enjoy your private master bathroom in the master bedroom, and let other guests enjoy a shared bathroom next to the second bedroom.

3. Peaceful Island Homes with Great Design are Hard to Find:

This fabulous unit touts tranquil tropical decor with classic island flavor. Red Hibiscus and green palms frame your windows with the pool and beach waters beyond that, creating a peaceful, lush beach view. Layout is spacious and functional. Kitchen is fully equipped to create gourmet coastal cuisine. Living room is comfortable with big TV, or face a wall of glass to watch the sea. Private patio right out the back door with chairs to sit and relax. Master bedroom is comfortable and beautiful with large windows surrounded by tropical plants. Large king bed is comfortable and will tempt you to stay in bed all day. Master bedroom also has large closet, glider chair and ottoman, TV, plenty of storage space, and bathroom. Second bedroom has two full beds and is next to a full bathroom. This unit is also equipped with FREE secure high-speed cable wifi dedicated to this unit. Note- this unit does not have a land-line.

4. You won’t have to Angle for Space at the Beach in Front of our complex:

The locals say Crescent Beach is the way old Florida used to be-- unpretentious and uncrowded and it’s even better at the Coquina Condo Complex. In the fifteen years I’ve been coming here, I’ve never had a time where I wasn’t on the beach by myself at some point. Part of this is because the Coquina is near the middle of the beach, thus, you don’t have a lot of people coming from the public access ways. Secondly, on one side of the Coquina you have a small house, on the other side you have a small sister complex to the Coquina. In addition, the Coquina is a small complex with only half of the units available to rent, for all these reasons combined, the beach in front of the Coquina stays uncrowded for the most part.

5. Crescent Beach and St.Augustine are a Perfect Place to Please Everyone:

This stretch of beach offers a bit of everything, from shopping and nightlife, to adventure and golfing, to hundreds of restaurants with gourmet offerings from around the world, to opulent relaxation. For a list of things we’ve found in the area that we recommend to do, email me and I will send it to you.

So come unwind, embrace serenity, and invest in you in this wonderful seaside getaway at the Coquina on Crescent Beach! We’re ready when you are.

About Marisa Dye

My name is Marisa and I am a boutique-type manager that specializes in managing a small handful of units in the two best complexes on Crescent Beach (the only two right on the beach— just six steps off the pool deck to sand, as opposed to all others that have long hard wooden boardwalks and stretches of dunes separating you from the sand and the sea). While I��m different from working with an owner (this is what I do for a living so I am fast to answer emails, always available by phone/text, and treat this as a business) I am a lot like an owner as well, in that I have been staying in this complex and on this beach for over 17 years myself (my parents own there)!

I have stayed in most of the units I manage and know the complex, beach, and area as well as I know my hometown. Renting with me means you won’t mess with big companies who have never set foot in our complex, much less your unit. It means that if there are problems, you have 24 hour access to me to help you. It also means that I am here to help you plan your perfect vacation for your group or family.

With 17 years of experience, first coming as a teenager, and now bringing my four children, as well as coming with my retired parents who own there, I am very familiar with what the area has to offer for all ages and the best insider tips for restaurants, places to find sea shells, best places to shop, golf, etc. I would love not only to rent to you, but to help you plan your perfect vacation as well!

See what this guest had to say about their experience with me, “And Marisa…if this isn���t her calling, then I don���t know what is. She could NOT have been more helpful and went above and beyond to answer any questions and offer extra information about the condo and the area.�������������������� For more testimonials go to

Why Marisa Dye chose St. Augustine Area

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?)! The locals still describe that as the way “old Florida used to be” with uncrowded beaches. It’s surrounded by entertainment and adventure and over 365 restaurants, and yet we are always content just breathing in all our condo and the ocean out the door has to offer! If you want crowds-- go to Daytona or St. Augustine beach, if you want quiet pristine beaches come here!

What makes this condo unique

Ground floor unit with fast acess to the beach with renovations done in 2016 including: New Natuzzi Leather Living Room set, Quartz counters in kitchen, and new bedspreads throughout!

Great Beach Rental

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay in this unit for an early spring break with my wife, son and his girlfriend. Nicely furnished, great location, beautiful view of the beach and pool. The King mattress in the master could use replacing but otherwise very comfortable. Thanks!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We love the St. Augustine area and this condo is in a perfect location...close to old St. Augustine, not far from Flagler Beach & Daytona Beach if you want something different. We have teenage and young adult kids that come with us and for the most part we just hang at the condo and enjoy the pool and the beach, although we visited several restaurants in the area and went parasailing in Daytona Beach, too! Definitely coming back next year!

Everything as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our two week stay - only wished we had booked for a month. Many of the people staying at this place do so for at least a month or two or three!! Since they come back every year there is a real feeling of friendship between them. The condo was nicely furnished. We loved the comfortable couch and nice recliner. The dishes in the kitchen were new and everything we needed as we made most of our meals. What could be nicer than sitting on the balcony and eating breakfast etc and listening to the waves. Marissa Dye was so helpful throughout the process of booking and checking in. The unit was so quiet and peaceful - lots of motorcycles going by on the road near the condo but never heard them inside. The beach was fabulous and we spent everyday walking and enjoying. We ate a few times at the nearby Red Frog and McToad and enjoyed the food. I would highly recommend this unit.

Guest of condo

  • 5 of 5

WOW, we came in after 5pm and it had been raining. To open the door without having to get a key an to see that the lights were on to welcome us. Very inviting to be "at home" it was clean, it had all we needed as for towels, extra blankets (if needed), a well arranged kitchen items with even a book of matches to lite a small candle on table. We enjoyed our time at this condo. We will return SOON, thank you Marisa for answering my questions, making the arrangement as easy as possible.

A relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful condo for a long weekend of R&R with dear friends. All 4 of us were so happy with this ground floor condo. Easy access to beautiful pool and uncrowded beach. Marisa was so easy to work with and gave us great recommendations. Condo was spotless and very well equipped. Interesting trip to Ft. Mantanza and easy drive into St. Augustine. Hope to go back again. thanks, Marisa!
