Saint Augustine House Rental Photos and Description

Awesome beach, 5 New Decks, sliders and great views! 4 Bedrooms (Sleeps 9)

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, decks, railings are new and there is a new beach walkover. New high top table on the lower deck with an umbrella. All the decks, railings and all exterior finishes were recently rebuilt. There is also a new, plush King Bed in the master bedroom, a new Queen Bed, new refrigerator, new dishwasher and new living room furniture.

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 and your mother-in-law and head to 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, well lit, 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.

Fabulous Beach House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Incredible beach, gorgeous views, and the perfect Beach House for complete pleasure. We had a month's long vacation celebrating my 60th Birthday, and we loved so many things about this home. The decks all around the home are so enjoyable with the Polywood Adirondack furniture giving it the beachy feel and comfort while relaxing, hearing the sounds of the ocean, and looking out at the amazing views. One of our favorite places was the gazebo area, which had wonderful breezes while taking in this paradise. The outdoor shower is such a smart addition and the clothes line nearby for hanging up all of the wet towels and bathing suits. The home is totally equipped and comfy, the kitchen had everything you need, toys for the beach, Tommy Bahama umbrellas are outstanding, boogie boards, and a lot of beach chairs which can be carried down easily to the beach. Especially the Rio beach chairs that you carry on your back like a backpack. Our Granddaughters thought this was tops. Totally dog friendly and our doggie, Bergen, loved it as much as we did. Our family had so many wonderful laughs and good times together here. We will always have fond memories of our vacation at the "Lookout", and it's definitely in our plans to return again to this lovely Beach House. Thank you for sharing your amazing home with us!

Loved every second!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a piece of paradise!! Thank you to the owners for sharing it with us! It comfortably fit 4 adults and 2 kids and the views from practically every room (especially the kitchen/family room) were *spectacular*! We were either out on the beach or out on the deck enjoying the ocean sounds/view for most of our vacation and it felt like our private island.

We fell in love with the house immediately and enjoyed every second of our stay! The walk to beach was so easy (and really pretty!), the warm shower was a HUGE amenity, the decks, balconies, views, location were all just perfect... I can't say enough about this amazing house!!

Thank you again for letting us stay here! We would loooove to come back next year... and for years after that! We made sooo many happy memories and will cherish them forever!! Our 2-year-old girls are still talking about the "beach house"!

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we expected and more. The split level, large open area and decks made it very comfortable for our large family. The house feels private with the lush foliage and it's situated on a quieter portion of Crescent Beach. The beach itself is wide and wonderful - perfect for walking, bikes, strollers, etc. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need to cook. We cooked here every night. We did enjoy lunch on a few occasions at the nearby South Beach Grill. Great seafood (nothing fancy) and you can get there via a short walk on the beach! There is also an abundance of beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, etc at the house. Don't bother overpacking if you stay here. Lastly, the owner was extremely accommodating and had the Internet connection fixed for us on day one. We couldn't have been any happier with our experience. We shall return!

My family loved staying just steps from the beautiful beach. Steps! We saw gopher tortoises as we crossed the sand dune. Every window afforded a gorgeous view of the Atlantic Ocean. I loved the outdoor shower to wash off. So relaxing. I never wanted to leave. Close to old Saint Augustine we were able to go into town to celebrate the 450 year anniversary of Saint Augustine. We also went to The alligator farm for the rope course/zip line. Lots to do here.

If you enjoy the outdoors, you will enjoy staying at the Overlook at Crescent Beach. We were very disappointed in the overgrowth around the area. We are aware that the dunes are to be kept natural; however, there were spiders inside and out. As my 30 year age son said, "they were as large as cocker spaniels". Betty was great in getting the exterminator to the property for the Florida "black nats", as they called them. We were told they are seasonal, however, they were crawling on the kitchen counters, ceilings, etc. Also the exterminator informed us that the spiders were not poisonous. We had small children with us. We were also told that the owner had just been at the property the week prior to our arrival. I guess he or she didn't look for the spiders that were on the south side of the house and the black nats may not have been present at that time. Also a big suggestion, trim back the tree leading into the garage because the spiders are in heaven there. On the positive side, our family was all under one roof and the house was stocked with every supply you could possibly need. So if you enjoy the natural environment you may enjoy your stay at The Overlook better than we did.

Owner's Response: Our family spares no expense on the maintenance of the house and the comfort of our guests and adjust our processes to better serve future guests. The inside of the house and perimeter is sprayed regularly based on the recommendations of the professionals with a non-toxic herbal mixture to protect people and their dogs while killing the insects and spiders. Our manager was responsive as always to this guest and she seemed happy with the responsiveness. We don't spray beyond the house perimeter so as to preserve the natural habitat. We understand that this guest had brought in dozens of tomatoes and peaches from a farm stand which would often carry insects and spiders with them and 1 spider pod can release thousands of spiderlings. Leaving the doors open will also invite them in. When we were there in July, there were no spiders or insects inside or any insects as the new doors and windows sealed the house better. Our cleaner also reported that there were no spiders or insects inside when she cleaned prior to this guests stay. The website text and images show and describe the natural setting of the house which is much of the beauty of this location. Along with the many other upgrades including all the sliders, windows, decks, exterior siding over the past 2 years, we also just replaced all of the living room furniture.
