This is real beach living, not a condo scene, nestled in a really cool little neighborhood. If you are bringing a pet, they are welcome.

We had a great time at this cottage. Just 15 minutes to St Augustine and just a short walk to the beach. Excellent restaurants close by, Violas for Italian and Red Frogs and McToads for home cooked food. 10 minutes to the lighthouse. The cottage was very clean and well stocked if you choose to cook. The next time we...

Management response:

Thank you for the lovely review. I thank my housekeeper for the cleanliness of the cottage. I try to make it all easy for you as vacations are supposed to go smoothly. Please come back! Martie

Crescent Moon is so close to the beach, you can hear the waves. It's a block away and the most fantastic beach as far as I'm concerned. Martie runs a pet-friendly rental and there's even a dog bath outside. Close to the highway as well as things to do in St. Augustine. I've stayed before and I'll stay again!!!

My wife and I spent two days in the middle of the week and we found the place so relaxing. There was everything we needed to cook and to enjoy the beach. The place was so clean that I did not even want to go home. We bought seafood and cooked in one night. The next night we walk down...

Super nice Johhyhyde. I know you will be returning. You are one of my super return visitors to the Crescent Moon.

About the neighbourhood
The historical neighborhood of Butler Beach is about 3 blocks long. People walk their dogs and are friendly. Rudolph Ave is a small, narrow road with nice homes and exceptional landscaping. The parking is limited but the Crescent Moon has a covered one car parking and is conveniently located right by the front door. There are consignment shops, restaurants, and a Dollar General near the Crescent Moon and all are within a mile. Of course, St. Augustine, the oldest city in the United States is a pleasant drive 10 miles north. A car is almost a must, but you may rent scooters and bikes and cruise the beach just one block away!
Getting around
A car is almost a must. Bikes are great. A trolley ride in St Augustine is nice. You may rent scooters.
Car advised
How to get there
