Once you stay, rest, and play on Anastasia Island in this high-end, coastal designed condo built on the beach with breathtaking views, you will never want to be anywhere else again.
Unlike the other 'beach-front properties' on Crescent Beach, this condo has no long boardwalk over the sand dunes to get to the warm sandy beach--simply go down seven steps off the pool deck, ditch your shoes, and take long walks down the beach, build castles, dive in the waves, fly kites, and let the beach wash away your stresses and replenish your peace! This is truly beach-front—the likes of which you won’t find in other complexes on Crescent Beach!
This completely remodeled unit invites you to truly relax and unwind! As you look through the photos and read the details about this condo, you will see beautiful, comfortable spaces and high quality materials. This unit will provide you the comfort you crave and the open high-end design you love!
Layout and Details of this unit:
When two walls of a room boast miles of sandy beach views—you know you’ve arrived in paradise! The living room boasts a wall of sliding glass doors with magnificent views of the beach and pool! Another wall reflects the deep blue of the ocean and the palms swaying in the breeze with ceiling to floor mirrors. In addition this room is furnished with elegant cherry wood furniture with mounted widescreen TV, Blu-Ray player, and surround sound system! This room is high-end design, high comfort furnishings, and high impact views!
If the peaceful design of the condo isn’t enough to make you yearn for the simple beach life, just walk onto the balcony. There’s nothing pretentious about Crescent Beach, just uncrowded beaches, shell scattered seashores, and vibrant sunrises and sunsets. Enjoy it all from the plush wicker gliders on the balcony. Rock calmly to the views of blue endless ocean, soft white sand, and the clear blue pool reminding you how good the beach life is.
Completely redone with new cabinets and granite countertops, this kitchen is not only fully stocked and functional, but beautiful as well. In addition, the kitchen is right off the living room so as you cook you can gaze out the living room windows to the breathtaking ocean views.
Guest Bathroom- 3/4 Bath
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 and the sun-filled day.
Climb the beautiful mahogany-stained oak staircase to the upstairs where you will find….
Master Bedroom is designed with soft beach colors and accents 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 a king size bed. Everything you need designed with everything you’ll want!

This full bathroom boasts a wall of designer tile, high-end granite counter tops, and modern fixtures.
WHY COQUINA 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!
- 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 V 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 Coquina 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 42 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.
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.

Our family loved the condo, the beach and the St. Augustine area! It was a perfect spring break destination for a family. The beach & the pool were not crowded. Many restaurants and sights to see! We loved downtown St. Augustine - the shoppes were so cute and quaint. The condo is exactly as described.
My wife and I spent a week here in May. Our goal was to relax, and it was perfect. The unit is well appointed and the property well located. Good restaurants nearby and close enough to St. Augustine to drive up for dinner or shopping. The pool and beach beautiful and uncrowded. We plan to return.
We had an amazing stay at the Coquina, we have been staying here for over 30 years and have stayed in Unit A-207 many times and are never disappointed. The unit is beautiful and has everything you need to relax and have a great stay at the beach.
The condo is everything it was advertised to be: clean, attractive, comfortable. The beautiful beach and pool were there for our nearly exclusive use daily. The king and queen of Spain even timed their visit to coincide with ours. Alternating beach days with tourist days worked out perfectly, even considering all the rain this week. We have many photos to trigger the memories of this week in paradise.
Awesome! Everything that has been said about this condo is true. We were there for an anniversary trip snd Marissa suggested The Collage Restaurant. Beautiful, romantic and delicious food! The local restaurants were good too!
This was our third year staying in this unit at the Coquina, and we always enjoy it. It never gets old waking up to beautiful sunrises every morning and watching the sunset every evening. The unit is beautiful and very comfortable and the Coquina is a great place for the kids they enjoy it every year.
Wonderful relaxing vacation, enjoyed waking up to a beautiful sunrise every morning. Very comfortable and quiet condo, we will be coming back again very soon!!!
Just returned from our third consecutive February, in this unit, at Coquina. Waking up to a daily portrait of the sun rising, palm trees, plus the sites and sounds of the Atlantic, never gets old. Best features: morning sun, the quiet, friendly neighbors, walking miles along near-deserted beach, unit's comfortable amenities, and working with Marisa! EXCELLENT VALUE!! Golf: None of the courses are in great shape this time of year but our three favourites: Victoria Hills, DeLand (worth the drive) River Bend, Ormond Beach (fun holes plus a rickety bridge and small aircraft buzzing overhead) Palm Harbor, Palm Harbor (20 minutes south, challenging older course) Very good casual dining: Violas (great Italian food and good selection of wine and draft, just north of 206 on west side) Captains BBQ (eat the ribs, eat the ribs! West side of A1A at Bings Landing, north end of Palm Harbor)
Our stay was so wonderful and exceeded our expectations. Such a fun family trip during the holidays. We absolutely loved it! Very comfortable and clean. Totally loved the view and could hear the waves from the balcony. We walked on the beach every morning and went on the beach and in the pool every day. Exploring St. Augustine was fun. There is so much to do and see. Many good restaurants including Pizza Time - worth the wait in line (which moves quickly)! We didn't want to leave! Working with Marisa was great. It is so nice to work with someone that you can trust.
