Property Description

Remodeled with high end renovation and design from floor to ceiling and everthing in between in 2016: New quartz, stainless steel appliances, furnishings, linens, bathroom vanities, lights, wainstcoting, etc.

Property Details

Enjoy the tranquil slow beach life of Crescent Beach in this condo that looks like it was transported from the high end homes of Key West! From the faux-wood tile flooring up to the new modern light fixtures, and almost every nook and cranny in between, this unit was just finished (Jan 2016) with a complete upscale remodel that will bring you back for years to come!

Walk up only four steps to your front door on this ground floor unit that gives you fast and easy access to the soft white sand and methodical ocean waves in your backyard. The first thing you notice when you open your front door is a gorgeous kitchen complete with extra wide quartz countertops that mimic the design of the sand glittering outside from the morning's tide, subway tile backsplash, and brand new stainless steel appliances that finish things off with sleek urban design.

The living room and dining room area boast bright white wainscoting giving the unit a classy, cottage look. Tailored looking furniture with dark wood accents look not only high-end but are comfortable to relax on while enjoying the swaying palms, red hibiscus, and beach out your floor to ceiling wall of sliding glass doors.

Off the main living area (main living area includes the kitchen, dining, living room, and private patio), you will find bedrooms adjacent to one another with a full bathroom in between. These ground floor units are popular with groups that are coming with more than one couple since the master bedroom has ensuite bathroom, and the second bathroom (also a full bathroom) is situated next to the second bedroom (that has two full beds). This setup allows not only visitors to have a bathroom without going into bedrooms, but also gives that second bedroom a bathroom close enough to use that it could almost be ensuite as well. Both bathrooms have been beautifully finished with custom tile work, granite counter tops that compliment the new white vanities they sit on, and sleek modern faucets and fixtures.

Master Bedroom is striking with a wall of windows with brand new white plantation shutters (plantation shutters can be found throughout the entire unit)—the shutters create a high end cottage look while also making it easy to look out at the beach and close for privacy. Brand new beach cottage furniture (including brand new HDTV) combines with charming southern design to create a perfect space for relaxing in after a long day at the beach or exploring America’s oldest city!

The second bedroom takes on a Tommy Bahama look with designer bedding, new furnishings, and two full beds. With a big closet and a new HDTV, this room has the feeling of being another master bedroom.

With new furnishings throughout, 3 new HDTV’s, and impeccable design and decor that focuses on coastal life brought indoors, this unit will be hard to leave behind at the end of your stay, but the good news is, you can always come back.

WHY CRESCENT SANDPIPER COMPLEX IS UNBEATABLE:



LESS THAN A MINUTE FROM UNIT TO BEACH: 




  • We are one of only two complexes on this beach that are RIGHT ON THE BEACH-- just seven steps off the pool deck at the center of our complex to sand.  

  • We built before restrictions forced everyone else to build behind the sand dunes. Thus all other complexes besides our sister property have long stretches of dunes and hard wooden boardwalks over those dunes—our “boardwalk” is made of sand.  

  • We're less than 60 seconds from your door to beach, making your trek with beach gear an easy and fast one!  



 



BEST VIEWS: 




  • Being steps from the beach also means we have the best views on the beach!  

  • Our unbeatable proximity to sand and water, combined with the fact that our complex is shaped like a U so that nobody blocks anyone else’s view, means our views are unrivaled by other complexes!  

  • Don’t be fooled by some people’s claims to “beachfront” or to have a great  “ocean view”— our view is not a corner of the room—or hanging over a balcony to get a glimpse of water— every unit in the Sandpiper has panoramic views of the beach! 

  • In addition bringing the sounds of the sea indoors is as easy as opening your windows or doors to hear the waves roll outside.



 



LESS CROWDS AT OUR COMPLEX: 




  • Unlike some complexes that have hundreds of units- this complex has only 51 units, with about half of those units available to rent and the other half being people's private vacation homes that often sit vacant.  As such, you won't see hundreds of guests from this complex taking up the beach space by the condo or crowding the pool and courts.  

  • We also don't rent to groups of young adults (guests under 25 years of age), thus we often have a more quiet feel than other complexes.  

  • Lastly, more often than not our rentals are by the week or month, we are not like a hotel that has a new group coming to party each night.



 



LESS CROWDS AT OUR BEACH:




  • Combined with the fact above that our complex is small with less guests using the beach, our beach often stays slow even in busy times (if you want to feel like you own the beach, ask me when the best time to come is) for a couple of other reasons….

  • Crescent Beach is not a commercial type of beach like St. Augustine beach we only have a couple of restaurants on the north end of the beach a mile away from us, thus we don’t get crowds coming to eat and then walk on our beach, likewise we do not have stores on our small stretch of beach—though there are plenty of stores just a couple miles north of us.

  • Additionally, we have no hotels on Crescent Beach— so we don’t get nightly guest crowds and partiers coming to our beach.

  • Lastly, to the north of our complex is a private vacation home (often sitting vacant), to the south of us is our sister complex similar in size to us, thus we aren’t surrounded by complexes with hundreds of guests that fan out onto our side of the beach.

  • Even in our high season our guests comment at how slow and peaceful everything is here.



​​


POOL AREA: We are one of the only complexes on Crescent Beach that has our pool just steps from the sand!  Why is this a big deal?  When you lay out on our loungers at the pool deck, you feel like you’re out at the beach— the waves are rolling just over your shoulders, the pelicans are soaring overhead and you can fall asleep to the ocean’s melody.  At other complexes you are surrounded by buildings and guests— here you’re surrounded by palm trees and ocean views.  No need to get sandy on the beach, be a sun worshiper from the comfort of the pool deck but still feel like you’re out at the beach!  In addition, a separate kiddie pool with one shallow depth makes for a great place for the little ones to swim without having to dive in after a child that goes too deep. 



 



AMENITIES: Enjoy a game of tennis on our private tennis courts enclosed by thick lush foliage.  Shoot some hoops at the basketball court.  Enjoy grilling dinner on our electric grills located on the upper deck with ocean views on one side and Intracoastal waterway views on the other (grills, loungers, tables, umbrellas, and chairs are provided).  Don’t miss a chance to take in the fiery colors over the Intracoastal as the sun sinks into the water at sunset, then look over your shoulder to simultaneously watch the beach turn to a palette of pastel pinks and blues— there is no better seat on all of Crescent Beach to enjoy the sunset than on the upper deck of the Coquina with panoramic water views on each side of you!



 



ABOUT CRESCENT BEACH AND SURROUNDING AREA:



This condo is nestled on one of the best kept secrets in the world-- Crescent Beach found on Anastasia Island, located just 15-20 minutes from the quaint historic city of St. Augustine. Crescent Beach has been named one of the most “scenic and unspoiled beaches in Florida.”  With soft white sand to play in, shells of all sizes that come in from the waves to find, and a shallow flat coastline to play in the waves, whether you build castles, beach comb, or play in the waves— the beach will keep you busy for hours.



If you decide to leave the beach you can do so to discover over 500 restaurants, more per capita of residents than anywhere else on the east coast, you literally could not try all of St. Augustine’s restaurants in a year’s time, but we welcome you to try.  Whether you come to enjoy one of the many golf courses nearby (including TPC Sawgrass), want to try your hand at fishing on piers, from the beach, or from a boat, have an interest in the area’s many museums or love the historic area’s architecture and brick pedestrian-only streets, or prefer the shopping and foodie scene, St. Augustine is a gem that more than one guest has asked us not to share with anyone else! 



If you don’t want to venture to the downtown area, the island we are situated on (Anastasia Island, which is considered part of St. Augustine proper), has enough restaurants, grocery stores, surf shops, and activities (such as Marineland where you can swim with dolphins, the Alligator Zoo where you can zip line over alligator enclosures, the famous St. Augustine lighthouse, or a multitude of recreational activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, boating, etc.) to keep you busy. However, we find, more often than not, it is the lonely beckon call of the beach out your door that has you rebooking. Described by the locals as “the way old Florida used to be,” Crescent Beach still remains slow, quiet, and peaceful like Florida beaches once were. With soft white sand to dig your feet in, shells scattered along the water’s edge to find, sea grass waving in the ocean breeze, turtles lazily digging in the dunes, pelicans surfing the skies, and dolphins playing along the shoreline’s waves, it is this quintessential beach life that fills our souls with longing and brings us back time and time again!



In terms of specific activities (other than everything the beach in your backyard provides), there is something for every single age and interest within 5-25 minutes away from the condo including: 



 



HISTORY: Tons of history and spectacular architecture!  We are just 15-20 minutes away from the oldest city in the nation where you will find museums, replicas of old St. Augustine where people are dressed in character and give you a guide through American history, or closer to home you can visit Fort Matanzas by boat just 5 minutes from the condo and hear the old cannons go off.



RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES: There are recreational activities in almost every single genre: fishing (from a platoon boat on the Intracoastal, by deep sea fishing boat on the Atlantic, or try fishing off the bridges and piers or from the shore in your backyard), boating, parasailing, kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, renting mopeds or scoot coupes, etc.



GOLFING: There are at least five golf courses nearby ranging from the community golf course to the world famous TPC Sawgrass at the World Golf Village.



ANIMAL LOVER ACTIVITIES: There are unique activities for animal lovers: training and swimming with dolphins just five minutes from the condo at Marineland, ziplining over hundreds of alligators ten minutes away at the Alligator Farm, or visiting a privately held wild animal zoo where you can see lions hug their trainers and tigers take bubble baths just 20 minutes away.  Just out your door you will find lizards darting in your path, turtles burrowing in the dunes out your window, dolphins jumping in the shoreline, cranes and pelicans fishing for breakfast, along with plenty of animal life that washes ashore including: jellyfish, starfish, coral, crabs, we've even seen small sharks washed ashore after a big storm (I've never seen sharks swimming in the waves in the 18 years I've been here).



SHOPPING GALORE: You can spend a lot of time and even more money at two huge outlet malls just across the road from one another 20 minutes away or spend your money on local wares and gifts for people at home on the pedestrian only brick street of St. George street downtown 15-20 minutes away.  Near the condo within 5-10 minutes you have plenty of shopping at surf shops, seashell shacks, and grocery shopping at stores like Walgreens, Publix, Wynn Dixie, Family Dollar, etc.



TOURISTY STORES: Downtown historic area has all of your traditional tourist activities including a multitude of fun ways to tour the city (think chocolate and dining tours, or tours by trolley and horse carriage).  The lighthouse is an easy climb and a great way to get a panoramic view of the city and to learn about lighthouses.  





MANAGER INFO:



My name is Marisa, and I am the manager that will work with you personally on your stay.  For almost two decades I have been coming to this complex as my own island retreat paradise and discovering new restaurants, taking new adventures, engaging in new experiences, and seeing the island through both tourists' and locals' eyes! I haven't come close to running out of things yet, and would love to help you plan your trip by giving you the local tips on where to eat and what to do to soak up everything this corner of the world has to offer. So come, accept our invitation, come to what will feel like home and make you never want to leave.



This property has 2 Full(s), 1 King(s).

Upscale condo

Beautiful condo! Quality and upscale furnishings. Loved having 2 queen beds in 2nd bedroom. Lower level with easy access to parking lot. Small complex, not a high rise and easy access to pool and beach. Would highly recommend this to any age group. We used it for a girl's getaway and found it very relaxing.

Great Place

Stayed at this condo for a week -- loved it. The grounds are beautiful - love the pool & the access to the beach. Even when it rained we had fun. Great layout of the condo & had all we needed to have a wonderful week. Loved the décor also. Would highly recommend this unit to anyone interested to stay in the Cresent Beach area.

Amazing Vacation

This condo, the complex and the Crescent Beach area was perfect for our family! The condo had everything down to the last detail. We didn't need to bring any extras like some rentals, it had it all. Very clean, well decorated and up to date. Both the pool area and beach are gorgeous. We usually vacation in the Myrtle Beach area, but no more! We had our two teenage boys and they found plenty to do, from surfing to fishing. Definitely have to spend a day exploring Beautiful St. Augustine. Marisa is awesome to work with and made the entire process so easy. Hated to leave but can't wait to go back!

Wonderful Condo

We stayed at this condo on our annual "girls trip". We loved having two queen beds in spare room. Mattresses were excellent, condo was spotless and had very high end finishes. It looked like a model home. Location was perfect. Complex was small and very well maintained. Easy walk to pool and beach and has a beautiful ocean view. Condo had beach chairs, noodles and beach towels. Marisa was great to work with. Will definitely stay again!

Really Nice Condo

Our family of four stayed at this condo for a week. It was recently remodeled and everything was new, fresh and modern. The kitchen had every convenience you would ever want in a kitchen of your own. We enjoyed this ground level condo in a very small complex. We were able to go back and forth easily from the condo, pool to the beach. We would definitely return!

Little Piece of Heaven

We've been staying on Crescent Beach for 13+ years now and many of those years at the Crescent Sandpiper or Coquina. On the trip down this year we discussed potentially going somewhere different next summer, but as soon as we were on Crescent Beach we decided there was no better place for us. The location, photos and layout of the condo were very accurate. The condo was clean and beautifully decorated. This was our first year in a lower level unit and we loved it! No stairs and right off the back patio to the pool and beach! You don't get quite the same ocean view, but we don't typically sit in our condo looking out a the ocean anyway. On the first night we always get pizza because we don't want to get in the car again and Viola's is the perfect place for that. Creekside might be our favorite restaurant. The Alligator Farm never gets old and our kids are big enough to Zip the Zoo and they loved that! Of course, you have to go downtown historic St. Augustine and take in all the wonderful live music and food. Crescent Beach is never a disappointment!

Beautiful Property

We've stayed in the Crescent Sandpiper before and was well satisfied at that time. Our stay this time did not change our opinion.We stayed in unit #112. It is on the ground floor and was/is a beautiful unit. We are looking forward to another visit there in the spring of 2017.

This was our 3rd year to beautiful Crescent Beach and this completely remodeled condo exceeded our expectations! The attention to detail did not go unnoticed from the beautiful kitchen to the luxury furnishings, my family of 5 enjoyed every convenience it had to offer. We were able to get plenty of Rest & Relaxation which is what our vacation was intended for. Marisa is exceptional to work with and she went above and beyond in assisting me with details for the perfect vacation! I highly recommend this condo and will definitely be back again in the future!
