“Great location”

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).

Yes, the TV is one of my favorites, too. Big screen for late nights and rainy days.

“Crescent Moon Honeymoon”
Reviewed 21 May 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!

“Great little spot on the beach”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The house exceeded our expectations. Plenty of space for two people and a dog. Great location very close to the beach. The jasmine that lined the patio fence was blooming and smelled beautiful throughout the house. The kitchen was really well stocked and we didn't miss anything when we made dinner. Only complaint there was the coffee maker. If you are coffee drinkers like us, you probably want to bring your own coffee maker. There was a Publix pretty close which was nice, also. A little far from the St. Augustine historic area but the map is pretty clear about that. Very quiet neighborhood so if you're looking for a party or to play music late without feeling weird, then probably not for you. We thought it was perfect.

One caution, since there is no tub (only shower) and low water pressure, it was pretty much impossible to wash our dog.

A new coffee maker is on the way! There is a hose around the north side of the front patio of the Crescent Moon for washing off sandy pets, feet and beach toys. I have made that clearer in the information I send to guests. I am sorry you did not know about it for your pet! I am also looking for a doggie bathtub to make it all easier for my guests to bathe their animals. Thank you for the great review and input is always important. I will continue to make it as comfortable as possible. Please come back and enjoy The Crescent Moon again! Martie McLean, owner
