“Great little spot on the beach”
Reviewed 8 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

“Great Place and Location, Beats Any Hotel or Condo!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Recently, my wife, I, and our dog went for a long weekend vacation to St. Augustine. We came across this vacation rental and took a chance on it. I'm glad we did because we absolutely loved it.

It has most all the amenities one would need: comfortable bed, good bathroom, full service kitchen, internet/wifi, tv, and satellite. There are even things that are a plus like covered parking and a little front and back patio. It's a block from the beach ramp, which really isn't bad. You don't have to cross any busy roads to get to it and it takes you maybe a minute to get there. You are also an easy 15 min drive to Old Town St. Augustine. There are plenty of grocery stores, food, and shopping in walking distance or a short drive.

The bathroom is in the master, so if you are planning on having more than two people stay here or visit you, they will need to go through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. Also, there is not a dishwasher or food disposal. Be prepared to clean your plates off into the trash can before you wash dishes. Both this are not a problem, I just wanted others looking into this place to be informed about it.

We will certainly be back again! I would certainly recommend it to my friends and family. In my opinion, it beats any hotel or condo.

Thank you for the lovely review! I do hope you return. The Crescent Moon is a home away from home for travelers and I agree it outshines the condo scene. I particularly appreciated the 5 star on service! I am sole owner and manager so it is a caring, personal service from me for my important guests. Martie McLean
