“Perfectly comfortable house close to the beach with everything you need!”
Reviewed February 26, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We loved staying at Martie's house. You can tell she loves that house. It is evident in the care and decor. We loved the beach cady and umbrella and the short walk to a very quiet beach. All the suggestions we tried from the book were accurate. Lots of good recommendations. We had our dog with us and there were many friendly dog owners on the beach with well behaved dogs. We will go again in the future. St Augustine is a short 10 minutes away and New Years Eve was magical!
Thanks Martie for sharing your house with us.

“Comfort a Few Steps From the Sea”
Reviewed February 9, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

This tidy, comfortable cottage is just a 5-minute walk to the ocean and the beach there is clean and very pretty. It has great amenities--all of the kitchen goodies you would need to cook, linens and a giant screen TV if it rains. The owner put a lot of thought into the personality of the place and if you were thinking of a "girlfriends get away" it would be a perfect place to go--lots of little touches that make it extra special. The owner is a good communicator and rules for getting back your deposit are very clear and easy to follow. Close to restaurants and shops. Enjoy!

“Perfect weekend vacation cottage!”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

I stayed at the cottage with my parents over a long weekend. We loved having a kitchen to cook and grill fresh seafood. My parents loved drinking coffee on the covered patio in the morning. We were right around the corner from the beach and you only have to walk on a private neighborhood road (not busy street) to get to the ocean. My dad loved watching his football and baseball on the big screen tv, and I was able to do some schoolwork thanks to the wifi. The place is perfect for a small family. The pullout bed was comfortable with the down topper and was basically in its own separate room. We could not have asked for a better stay and plan to come back in the future. Also, Martie called to make sure we got in okay and didn't need everything!

“Great location”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

Quiet location short walk to the beach and short drive to Historic St. Augustine. Unit well equipped. Decorated in a very "eclectic/beachy" décor. Convenient to restaurants and food store (Publix). Unit is perfect for a couple. (Note that the only bathroom must be accessed through the master bedroom) we were traveling with a friend and this was a little awkward. Small private courtyard provided great place for our cat and for us to relax and enjoy the evenings. I would highly recommend to single or couple. Would stay again.

Yes, the bathroom is off the bedroom. I might suggest, if you are traveling with another couple and you are not comfortable with the one bedroom and the bathroom situation of the Crescent Moon that you might look at the Ooo Laa Laaah directly behind the Crescent Moon. It is a 2/2 and would solve that issue. The listing is Flip Key #628226. Thank you so much for the review and I hope you return.

Great location for lazy getaway. Easy walk to the beach (my favorite part) and large tv for viewing (my husbands favorite), Not a real crowded area, but within 10 minutes you are in downtown St Augustine, lots of people watching (my husbands favorite) and lots of good local restaurants (my favorite part).

“Crescent Moon Honeymoon”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My new husband and I stayed at the Crescent Moon for two nights after our wedding in St.Augustine. It was the perfect place to unwind for our first days as husband and wife. The location is perfect; the beach is literally right around the corner! The owner Martie has done a great job of decorating and making the home a cozy vacation spot. We had everything we needed and more. We hope to come back and stay sometime soon and will definitely be recommending this vacation home to family and friends. If you book the Crescent Moon you will not be disappointed!
