Aren’t you tired of searching for the perfect place for your Crescent Beach vacation?

With hundreds of condos to choose from in this area, there are 4 SIMPLE REASONS that make this condo one of the easiest choices in planning your vacation:


This unit had a living room complete remodel with all new decor and furnishings that will remind you of a quintessential beach cottage. You will love relaxing in the coastal chic front room with unobstructed views onto Crescent Beach (what locals describe as one of the few “old Florida” beaches left in the state with uncrowded beaches and soft white sand). Beautifully furnished throughout, and very well appointed, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit is the perfect place for your next fun-filled family getaway, or quiet beach retreat.


This unit is situated in the high-demand high-end Coquina complex. You can’t get closer to the beach than in the Coquina. Built right off the beach— you are five steps from the pool deck (pool deck is at the center of the complex) till your toes can curl around the sand and break for the waves. In all other complexes (besides our sister property) you have long hard wooden boardwalks that separate you and your views from the beach.

You will also find that our complex is slow (we have 42 units only which about half are available to rent and the other half often sit vacant). This means it is not unusual to enjoy a dip in the pool alone, or to have the tennis courts, grilling deck, or backyard beach to yourself. The other high-rise complexes on this beach can’t make this claim!

With beautifully manicured gardens, well maintained common areas, and friendly on-site manager and maintenance people, once you discover Coquina, you will never be satisfied staying anywhere else again (or so claims the hundreds of guests that have been coming for 30+ years).


The two floor layout is extremely functional, providing plenty of room for an ideal vacation relaxing indoors, as well as a base camp for outdoor exploration and sight seeing. The first floor boasts a bathroom with large walk-in shower off the entry (so you can easily shower off the sand from a long day at the beach). The kitchen is spacious and functional with stainless steel appliances, well stocked cupboards, and views of the beach making it easy to prepare tasty and memorable culinary creations as you watch the colors change into dusk on the beach. The beautiful tile floors extend through the entire first floor, and are a lovely counterpoint to the relaxed and easy-going decor. The dining and living room are perfectly situated for entertaining and enjoying a show on the new flatscreen HDTV while you enjoy dinner, or face towards the ocean instead to watch the never-ending show the beach and nature provides. Better yet, enjoy your dinner or a drink out on the private balcony as you listen to the gulls cry, the waves roll, and feel the ocean breezes assuring you that life is good.

Upstairs you have two bedrooms and a full bathroom in between rooms, making for comfortable living spaces. The master bedroom boasts a king bed, flat screen television, and breathtaking views of the Atlantic ocean from a wall of windows! The second bedroom features two full-size beds, a new smart TV (available to hook up a DVD player, bring a gaming system, or stream from, but not hooked up to cable service), and beautiful coastal decor that will set just the right tone for your guests or children. This room also features views of the Intracoastal waterway where you can enjoy the brilliant sunsets.


The manager of this unit calls this complex her home as well, as she has been coming for over 17 years and now manages a handful of units at the Coquina and Crescent Sandpiper. As such, she loves helping her guests plan their perfect vacation to the award winning (named by Coastal Living as well as National Geographic) St. Augustine area. Don’t mess with big companies who have never set foot inside your unit, deal with someone who can easily answer your questions about the unit, complex, and area and is available night and day to help you with all aspects of your vacation. It takes 5-10 minutes to book. Before check-in the manager emails you all the information you need for check-in, plus ideas of things to do in the area. This unit is equipped with an electronic lock, so no need to stop at management offices, align your hours with theirs, or try to fumble around for a key at an off-site location in the dark— just punch in your access code to the lock on the unit and start your vacation! Easy to book, helpful planning guides, and attention to your needs, booking and staying here couldn’t be easier!

Staying in this beach chic comfortable unit just seconds from the beach in the best complex on Crescent Beach has never been easier. Please visit my website or contact me for help planning your stay, questions, or to book this unit.

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

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?)! 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!

What makes this condo unique

Main floor remodel June 2017-- all new furnishings! Great design, great views, great price point!

Excellent Stay in B204

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week in Crescent Beach. This condo was perfect for our needs. Everything we needed was provided including beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, etc. This unit was in excellent shape and was very clean. The complex itself was very well maintained and has a really nice pool and common area. There is ample parking as well. The beach was fantastic, very wide and not very crowded. I really liked the fact that this condo complex only has a small number of units. It never seemed crowded and we never had to jockey for chairs by the pool or a spot on the beach. I would highly recommend this condo.

The Coquina reflects simplicity and beauty of Crescent Beach. The condo was very nice along with the view of the pool and ocean. We will definitely be back.

We were two pairs of adult couples and were satisfied with the property. Enjoyed being right on Crescent Beach and reasonable proximity to downtown St. Augustine. Lots of beach walks and great selection of dining in the area. Smaller condo property with pool and decks. Kitchen and living area ample space for our needs. Would definitely come back!!!

Clean, beautiful location, everything we needed for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was wonderful from start to finish. It was clean, the kitchen was well stocked, and it was ideally located close to the pool and beach.

It was a quiet area which was perfect for our family (my husband, myself, and our 4 boys). We often had the pool area to ourselves and the beach was always quiet. It was a great beach for walking, sand castle building, and playing in the waves! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun filled vacation!!

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was fantastic!! When we entered there was soft music playing and everything was super clean. The furnishing were just as seen online. There were plenty of towels (even a few beach towels), blankets, and pillows. I was very glad that we had the use of beach chairs, umbrella and even a boogie board. All appliances were in very good working order and there was dish detergent, some paper towels and dishwasher pods. Every light bulb worked and there were spare ones in the closet. I loved having the touch key pad and not having to worry with keeping up with a key. I have rented a more expensive beach house before that wasn't nearly this clean. I booked for next year before I left - that tells you how much I loved it. Also, it was so convenient to the pool and short walk to beach.

My husband and I are big seafood cookers. We knew we'd go to a seafood market and get some fresh shrimp and grouper. I brought my own BIG cast iron cooker, oil thermometer, etc. I forgot the long handle slotted spoon for getting shrimp out of the pot. LOL this is the only thing the condo didn't have but it did have some pierced serving spoons. I think this was the best priced vacation we've had in a long time. Thank you!!! We'll definitely recommend this unit to friends.
