What is a Caribbean Life? One that has sand stuck in your soul, sunsets branded in memory, and the ocean's bidding call to return to the beach again and again.

Embrace the Caribbean life in this luxury unit with near unbeatable views of the beach out your window just three units away from the waves. You will savor breathtaking sunrises and views of the ocean from your entire main floor from a wall of sliding glass doors off the living room or from a wall of windows in the master bedroom. You will also enjoy fiery sunsets and views of the Intracoastal Waterway from a wall of glass doors in the second bedroom or step out of the large sliding glass door to the third level walkway to breathe in the ocean air as you watch the sun set. Views here are hard to beat!

This caribbean hideaway has been completely remodeled from paint to flooring and everything in between with high-end finish work, some of which includes: wide tongue and groove white plank ceilings, all new modern light fixtures, all new contemporary bathroom vanities, gorgeous tile work throughout main floor and beautiful hardwood flooring throughout the upstairs, extra wide granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances.

Designer furnishings and decor from West Elm, Pottery Barn, Thomasville, and Nautica create not only the feel of living inside the pages of a magazine, but also a comfortable place to kick off the shoes, wash off the sand, and enjoy the sunset on your private deck just three units away from the sand. After drinks on your deck at sunset, come in and be entertained on one of three TVs w/ high definition, extended cable service & DVR (so you can record your favorite shows but never miss the sunset), and Bluray DVD player.

Retire to your master bedroom with inviting plush king bed and a wall of windows to gaze out at the rolling tides and swaying palms as you drift to sleep to the ocean's orchestra from the open windows. Or stay up and read in the comfortable recliner in the master as you watch the moon rise from the ocean. Just make sure to rest up so you can repeat the Caribbean life tomorrow!

Other bonuses this unit includes are: washer and dryer in the unit, water filtration system, and tankless hot water heater. Needless to say this is one of our most popular units that book first and generally only have a few weeks of vacancy a year, so book fast to capture the Caribbean life for your seaside retreat!

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 www.stayatcrescentbeach.com.

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!

This complex is a small complex with around half of the units available to rent and the other half remaining vacant. We are also one of only two complexes on this beach that are located RIGHT ON the beach--all others have long stretches of dunes and long boardwalks that separate you from the beach. Because we are closer and smaller our views are better, it's easier to get out to the beach, and you don't compete with large crowds and other guests!

What makes this condo unique

Consistently defined as the unit that looks like it came from Coastal Living Magazine, this unit is booked over 90% of the year! This luxury unit has designer brands and touches plus the convenience of having a washer/dryer in the unit and 3 TVs!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo; the view is spectacular and all the amenities made our stay really comfortable. When we plan to return to this area again (probably won't be for a few years and later in the season), we'll be sure to plan our whole trip around availability of this unit.

When we arrived, we were pleased to find a new Keurig coffee maker - a nice addition to a well stocked kitchen! We appreciate your help during the rental process, the book full of specifics about the condo and the condo association, along with suggestions about the area - what to do, where to go, restaurants, etc. Very very helpful!!

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo, the beach, and the entire area! Very quiet, away from cities and noisy activity, yet easily within driving distance (15 Min) of shopping and only 20 min from St. Agustine which was great to visit, eat, and shop in. Especially liked the east ocean view from living room balcony and from the master bedroom being awakened each morning with the sun coming up over the ocean. Want to go back!

My husband and I have stayed in Crescent Beach for the past two years. We absolutely love everything about this unit! It is so tasfully decorated, has fabulous views, and is close to everything we need. We so enjoyed sitting out on the deck enjoying the ocean views and sunsets! Marissa is so effiecient and very helpful to answer all our questions. We like being able to drive into St. Augustine which is just a few miles away. We look forward to coming back again next year!!

Always amazing

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this unit for several years and it is amazing! Things we love about this unit are:

(1) The hardwood! I love not having carpet, especially with sandy feet coming in. I always know the floor is clean on hardwood.

(2) The computer desk off the kitchen! I always have to work on vacation and generally people don't have a setup for that, but they have this great little desk off the kitchen where I can easily charge up, work, and still enjoy the view out the window of the beach!

(3) The rockers on the patio! The rockers on the patio are so comfortable-- you sit down into these super thick plush pads and then rock as you watch the waves and gulls. We had a couple of really amazing lightning storms as well and enjoyed watching the lightning at night over the waves.

(4) Of course the view! This one goes without saying, but we love that in this unit you're so close to the end and you have such incredible ocean views!

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four LOVED staying here. The decor is very relaxing and everybody commented on how comfortable the beds were. It is very close to the beach, which was important to us. One thing we noticed was how quiet it was inside. Even though we were right by the pool and a family would often sit outside below our balcony, we didn't hear a peep from anybody - even the man yelling "Marco, Polo"! The walls, windows and doors are solid and very insulated. Along the beach, there are more homes than hotels or condos, so the beach was not crowded at all. We will definitely stay here again if we go back to St. Augustine.

Exactly what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in this condo. It was CLEAN, newly renovated, and beautifully decorated. The complex was also clean and well maintained. I'm a pool owner and very particular and the complex pool was perfect. Of course the beach is the reason for the visit, and it did not disappoint. Plenty of sand and surf for miles. No high rises, just friendly folks enjoying God's creation. Marissa was very attentive and easy to reach via text. We stayed the week prior to our son's wedding and we shared the unit with him for a few nights and then our friends from France flew in and they were thrilled with the accommodations as well. The kitchen was fully stocked and the air conditioning worked like a charm in the 90+ degree weather and 90% humidity. We would love to return!
