About the property


If you book a week in April the price has been lowered to $749 base rate for the week (this does not include taxes and other fees, just the weekly rental rate)! To get discount, use the book it now feature and check out at the normal rate it is showing you; it will look as though you've paid the full rate but before the manager accepts the booking and charges your card, we will reduce your base rate to $749-- this does not include taxes or additinonal fees.

Once you stay, rest, and play on the white sandy beach of Crescent Beach (few minutes south of St. Augustine Beach) in this newly renovated townhome with breathtaking views, you will never want to vacation anywhere else. This property is very popular for four reasons:


Unlike the other 'beach-front properties' on St. Augustine Beach or Crescent Beach, this oceanfront condo has no long boardwalk over the sand dunes to get to the warm sandy beach. Simply step onto the beach from the pool deck, ditch your shoes, and have fun on a secluded beach away from the crowds. This is truly beachfront, the likes of which you won’t find in other complexes on St. Augustine Beach or Crescent Beach!


This unit boasts high-end design throughout including crown moulding and Wainscot paneling. As you look through the photos and read the details about this condo, you will see a comfortable tropical setting decorated with high quality Rattan and cottage style furniture that invites you to relax and unwind and soak up the beach out your window- giving you the comfort you deserve.


You’re already closer to the beach than any other complex. In addition, this complex is shaped like a V so nobody is in front of you blocking out your view. Lastly, only 1/4 of the units in this complex have a setup that has very little of their neighbor’s wall jutting out into part of their view— and we are one of them! We literally get contact by our guests telling us they were surprised by how amazing the view was—-the pictures just don’t do it justice!


Three LED widescreen smart TV’s (one in every room) plus Blu-Ray players and sound bar in the living room. Plus this unit is equipped with a dependable dedicated WI-FI—a must if you need to work or are on the internet a lot. Also great for streaming movies to the TV’s, etc. The complex also has shared WI-FI for the pool area but it is not very reliable for inside the condos—so this is a major perk!

Read below for the setup of this condo:

Living Room

The living room is furnished with quality Rattan style furniture with tropical wall art to provide a true beach atmosphere. The sliding glass door spans the full length of the balcony to provide magnificent views of the beach and pool! In addition, the living room is furnished with a queen size foldout sofa, an LED widescreen smart TV, Blu-Ray player and sound bar plus.


Completely remodeled with new granite countertops and new fixtures, this kitchen is not only fully stocked and equipped with microwave, dishwasher, and garbage disposal, but beautiful as well. In addition, the kitchen is right off the living room so as you cook you can gaze out over breathtaking ocean views.

Guest Bathroom

Soft ocean colors design this bathroom with easy walk-in shower (bathroom located right next to the front door) to wash off the beach’s sand after a sun-filled day.

On the second floor, you will find...

Master Bedroom

Master Bedroom is designed with soft beach colors with crown molding and boasts a wall of windows with beautiful ocean and pool views. This room has plenty of storage in closets and dressers, as well as new quality cottage style furniture with king size bed, large LED TV, and smart Blu-Ray player with dedicated WI-FI, perfect for steaming and internet access. Everything you need designed with everything you’ll want!

Second Bedroom

This fun, beach-themed room has two quality full size beds. New bedding and cottage style furniture were purchased at Haverty's plus new LED smart TV and Blueray player.

Upstairs Bathroom

This full bathroom has been remodeled with granite counter tops and modern fixtures.

About Marisa Dye

My name is Marisa and I am a boutique-type manager that specializes in managing only high end units near St. Augustine.

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 my roots at Crescent Beach run deep.

Crescent Beach was my grandmother’s beach. Her father drove the local school bus in nearby Palatka and each summer they took the bus to the beach, drove onto the sand and spent their vacation camping. My grandmother grew up and moved out west but couldn’t quite get the sand out from between her toes. Every summer she and her husband would pack their five kids (including my mother) into a station wagon and drive 2300 miles back to Crescent Beach. I didn’t drive cross-country or camp in a school bus, but when I was a teenager my parents purchased a unit on Crescent Beach and I grew to love this beach as my grandmother had!

Some family traditions should never die, so I now vacation right here on Crescent Beach with my kids, who have also come to love this still uncrowded beach my grandmother played on 75 years ago.

Because I was the “Guest” before the “Manager,” I have a unique approach in the way I work with guests

This haven from the world is not only in my blood, but also in my heart, so I love introducing others to Ponce de Leon’s magical city of St. Augustine or inviting them to sink their feet into the sugary sands of Crescent Beach and build unforgettable memories that don’t wash away with the incoming tide. For me this is as much a passion as a business! My love of helping others is evident in over 100 renter reviews that name me personally. I take pride in being a positive part of each guest’s vacation experience.

Renting with me means you won’t mess with people from big companies who have never set foot in the complex or unit. It means if there are problems, I provide 24 ho

Why Marisa Dye chose Crescent Beach

The Coquina Condo is considered by many to be the best complex on the beach for a couple of different reasons:

(1) We are the closest complex to the beach, one of only two complexes that don't have a boardwalk to the beach, but rather just a few steps off the pool deck!

(2) We are a small complex so you don't fight for beach space, the courts, or the pool-- in fact more often than not I find myself alone at the beach for long periods of time and I have never shared the pool!

(3) The way our complex is shaped in a V makes it so you have a great view of the beach without anyone blocking you!

(4) Our pool is at the center of that V right on the ocean, so when you're laying out on the pool deck, you feel just like you're on the ocean!

What makes this condo unique

Some of the best views on the whole beach (you are in the complex CLOSEST to the beach & then only 1/4 of the units in this complex have a view like this one with mostly beach and very little of your neighbor's wall)--the views are almost unbeatable!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay. Our only complaint is that the stay wasn't long enough! From the moment we entered the condo we felt welcomed with wonderful music and a beautiful space. We will definitely be back and look forward to the opportunity to stay in your condo again.

right on the ocean, great beach walks. nice place

  • 4 of 5

Very nice condo. We stayed 2 months. This area near St. Augustine is not a 'spring break' area. Tourists are mostly families and older folks. Condo is very nice, porch overlooks the ocean and pool -- however it faces north east and therefore gets no sunlight during the winter. Third floor view from the bedroom window is great. Bathrooms are small but functional. Property manager and condo residents were friendly but not intrusive. We had a great time.

August beach trip

  • 5 of 5

We`'ve booked at Coquina on previous vacations, so we were already familiar with the complex, although this was our first time in this unit. Views from balcony and master were great. Wi-Fi and Xfinity service were fast and reliable - our boys streamed Netflix in the second bedroom. Mattress in the master was very comfortable. Unit was very clean on arrival, no maintenance issues, nor any other problems during our stay. We love this quiet stretch of beach. Marisa makes renting simple and easy. Recommend Harry's for a nice dinner out overlooking the water and O'Steens for great shrimp - there are plenty of other suggestions in the guest book.

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this condo. We had no problem at all checking in, the condo was clean and looked just like the pictures, the view was gorgeous, and the communication was excellent. We loved the beach as it was not crowded at all, nor was the pool. My only issue was with the TVs. We couldn't get anything but local channels, even though we followed the very specific directions in the book provided at the condo (wonderful!) It was okay though as who needs TV at the beach? Plus, we had great internet so no complaints at all. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a nice, quiet place to vacation.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a wonderful time with us! I love hearing that! Isn't it amazing that you can stay at a beach like this and not have it be crowded at all? That's my favorite thing about Crescent Beach. Also, in response to the TV issues-- we have had a terrible time with Comcast customer service and I am so sorry the TVs were not working well for you. We have had that issue fixed it so that there are no more TV problems, I wish we would have had it fixed during your stay, but glad you had an enjoyable time even without TV. We so appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review and hope to have you back to our quiet beach again!

Crescent beach is located in a secluded beach area away from the crowds bordering south of St. Augustine in Crescent Beach, close to the southern inlet. Just a 15 minute drive to historic downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in Florida with plenty of attractions, great restaurants, and shopping.
