We just spent four (4) weeks at the "Crescent Moon" and it was wonderful. The "Crescent Moon" has everything you need for a great stay. Martie (the owner) has thought of everything to make your stay memorable. The location is great the neighborhood is quiet and Butler Beach is just around the corner.

"Crescent Moon is a comfortable beach house for
those who prefer privacy and a peaceful
environment. It features a lovely bedroom of
generous proportions as well as an intimate little
patio great for relaxing with a good book. The
cottage's location a stone throw from a most
beautiful beach and yet close to urban type
shopping, is ideal."

We have vacationed in St. Augustine several times because it's one of our favorite places. Until now, we have not roomed anywhere two times in a row. We will definitely be staying at the Crescent Moon again because we feel we have found a warm homecoming there. Everything you can think of is available and thoughtfully provided. Martie is always friendly and a pleasure to deal with. We have already shared with our friends the wonderful experience of our stay and recommend it to all our friends and family. Tropical Storm Debby was the only downfall but we still went to the beach - even in the rain! What a lovely place!! T Hart 7/12

I so enjoyed my stay at this owner's previous property that I decided to rent again, this time at Crescent Moon. This house is quaint, historic and quite a retreat. Just steps away from the beach, I was able to jog every morning by the beautiful blue water, and sleep to the roll of the waves. I really appreciated the wireless internet and when I inquired about a barbeque, the owner went out and purchased one! Class act.

We had a delightful stay at the Crescent Moon for
the month of March, 2009. The cottage is very clean
with all the conveniences. The hostess had even
thought of providing toothbrushes! We were very
pleased to catch the sun in the two private patios -
front and side. It is just a minute's walk over the
dunes to the beach. The beach is very broad and
clean, and you can see for miles. That there are few
people using it makes it that much more appealing.
Just perfect for walking and/or jogging. In addition,
the cottage is close to all the amenities and
attractions of St Augustine. We had a truly pleasing
month and have the tan to show it :)

Truly a home away from home! This is the second year in a row that we have chosen to spend our vacation at the Crescent Moon, and it will be our vacation spot everytime! It's private. It's clean. It's pretty! And it's sooooooo close to the beach! We love it! Thank you, Martie, for all the extras that you have provided to make our stay comfortable and fun (boogie boards, lounge chairs, grill, etc., etc.).

A half a block from AIA and a half a block from the Atlantic is nestled a little piece of Paradise. The Crescent Moon is a delightful venue conveniently located to restaurants, shopping and beachcombing or just staying put and relaxing. I am a writer and found the patio a tranquil place to sit and let my creative juices flow. The place has friendly, quiet and considerate neighbors and everything one needs to have a very comfortable, relaxing time. It is wi-fi accessible and has a new flat screen TV, all of the beach accessoried one could need ( wagon, chairs, etc.) This is a wonderful place for seniors ( My 80 year old mom stayed with me) it has no stairs, elevators, step-downs or other hindrances for the handicapped or disabled. This is truly a vacation venue that anyone can come, take their shoes off, and not worry about anything except when is the best time to go walk the beach, fall asleep on the comfy lounger on the porch, or watch the crescent moon rise directly overhead. Most enjoyable and user-friendly. I'm going back as soon as I can!

This is a great little beach house! cute,clean and close to the beach.It has been thoughtfully decorated and supplied with everything you might need for a sweet beach getaway. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

We enjoyed our stay at Crescent Moon. It was like staying at a friend's home. It was very clean and had everything. Martie is very easy to work with. It was probably less than a 5 min walk to a gorgeous beach but if you have a lot to carry you could drive your car and park ride by the boardwalk.
May 26, 2011 Lynda SC
This was a great little rental. There is no beach view but the walk to the beach is short. The kitchen and living area are very small but the bedroom and bath are a nice size. The rental is well maintained and very clean. The landscaping is lovely and there is a private outdoor seating area. My only minor complaint is that there is only parking for one car and we had to pay extra to park the other car in the adjoining drive. We had a lovely time though and hope to come back again. We already recommended the property to someone else who was looking for a small rental. Bring a bike, great beach riding on a super flat beach!

WE STAYED AT THIS GREAT COTTAGE FOR 3 MOS..THE WEATHER COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER. THE COTTAGE WAS SO COMFORTABLE AND WE FELT SO AT HOME INCLUDING MY 2 LITTLE DOGS. BUTLER BCH IS SO UNIQUE AND THE SAND WAS LIKE SUGAR. WE WERE SO INTRIGUE BY THE HISTORY AND THE WARMTH OF THE SURROUNDING. IT IS CONVENIENT TO EVERYTHING LIKE RESTRS, GROCERY STORES, DRUG STORES, ATTRACTIONS, AND DON'T MISS THE LOCAL FARMER'S OUTSIDE VENDING MARKETS ON WEDN AND SAT...WE WERE SAD TO LEAVE BUT WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK...SO MANY WONDERFUL MEMORIES THANKS MARTIE BECAUSE IT WAS JUST LIKE YOU EXPLAINED...DELITEFUL AND A GREAT 3 MONTH VACATION..

Martie, we had an awesome time at the Crescent Moon! The cottage is very well kept; it’s clean, comfortable and perfect for any vacation. It’s convenient to St. Augustine but far enough out to enjoy a nice quiet time without the hustle and bustle of being in town. The neighborhood is safe, quiet and we enjoyed plenty of late evenings on the beach and best of all, we had it almost to ourselves! Although we ate out for just about every meal, there were plenty of amenities to accommodate us for whatever we wanted to cook. We highly recommend the Crescent Moon to anyone wanting to get away to the beach or just to get away. We enjoyed it so much; we are already looking forward to our next trip. The only downside is, it just won’t come soon enough!

Had a fantastic time for the entire month. The
house was perfect for Brutus (110 lb. Dobie) and
myself. I had the best weather and enjoyed staying
at your rental. Never had to look hard or far as you
supply everything for a quiet and relaxing "home
away from home". Thanks allowing us to stay.
More than likely you will see us again.

We stayed here over the New Years....I must first say the owner Martie was very likeable and helpful..we were welcomed with fresh fruit...the cottege was clean and very nice located only about a block from a beautiful beach, I recommend this lovely bungaloo to anyone wanting the comforts of home, In St Augustine...Thanks again for the memories i will cheish for years to come....Jarrett

When we opened the door, the beach décor immediately set a relaxing carefree atmosphere and indeed, several small signs proclaimed that “you are now on beach time!”

The owner’s hand was apparent in many little kindnesses and considerations for her guests. When we had no bag to collect mementos from the beach, we discovered a beach tote hanging in the bedroom armoire for the very purpose of collecting shells and other beach goodies. It’s also very obvious that the she puts in a great deal of effort and takes pride in the cleanliness of the rooms and maintenance of the flowers and plants surrounding the cottage and private patio area.

This quaint cottage is close to shopping, golf and tourist attractions any of which are well within a 20 minute drive. We ate all our meals out (although we could have easily prepared our own in the well-equipped kitchen) and discovered a very good variety of dining choices to meet almost every taste; all within a short drive.

The neighborhood is very quiet, the neighbors are especially friendly and we felt safe and content in the surroundings.

The beach is practically at your doorstep – about a 2 minute walk – and is very quiet and private. No large condo crowds here!

If you are a wildlife enthusiast, you are in for a treat as wildlife management is taken very seriously here and the dunes are closely monitored and protected for sea turtles and other migrations.

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway yet still want to be close to more upscale activities then look no further.

We enjoyed our stay so much that on our return home we immediately booked another reservation!

We had a wonderful time at The Crescent Moon! It is a very quaint and quiet getaway. The neighbors are friendly as well which is very nice. Martie is very accommodating and actually called during our stay to make sure everything was going well. It's a refreshing change to get service like that these days. Keep up the good work Martie! Hopefully, we'll see you again soon!

Homeowner Response: Thank you so much for the lovely comment. I hope you will return. Martie

Martie, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cresent Moon. The beach was beautiful! It was great to visit St. Augustine again, we have been visiting there since 1988. We have stayed in beach houses before, some alot fancier, but none of them had the feeling of peaceful contentment that this one had. We felt right at home, I could have stayed there forever. I loved the privacy. The neighborhood was great, very quiet. I felt safe. We tried out several of the restaurants that you suggested and they were excellent.

Thanks Martie for a wonderful vacation. We plan on coming back every chance we get. I almost don't want to recommend it, just keep it to myself because it is a treasure!

We have been telling our friends about our stay and they said it sounds like just what they are looking for.

Homeowner Response: Thank you so much for the lovely comments. Your review reflects my feelings about "The Crescent Moon" as well. You are always welcome. Martie

We have had the chance to stay at Crescent Moon several different weekends and we love it! It's a charming place with all the comforts of home. We love walking the beach just a block from the house and sitting out on one of the two patios amongst the jasmine and bouganvillia. This is a great place. Thanks Martie for sharing it with us!

Martie,
We had a glorious time. Walked on the beach for
miles every day. Brought home some beautiful
shells. The best treasure was a sand dollar about 6
inches across. The man at the shell place across the
street told us how to take care of it. We got to see
the dolphins playing just off the coast near the
house and again off the coast at Marineland as well
as those in the swimming pool. Traveling A1A was
very easy and it didn't take us long to become
familiar with the neighborhood. The Sea Oats cafe
that you recommended was wonderful. So many
places to eat that were wonderful. I didn't cook
once the entire time. Now that is a vacation! We did
a lot of the tourist stuff and enjoyed everything.
St. Augustine has become my new favorite place
and we hope to return again. We met some of the
nicest people. Some were tourists like ourselves but
more importantly locals. I can't tell you how lucky
we feel to have found your home and to have it
available to us for this trip. It is a very comfortable
and cozy home and close to everything. Even the
drive into old St. A was not difficult at all. At the
end of the day to return there to peace and quiet
and miles and miles of beach to enjoy was
unbelievable. It was hard to leave and return to
reality and 29 degree weather.
I cannot thank you enough for everything. Have a
wonderful 2009.
Mike and Susan Liggett 1/1/09 El Dorado, KS

This is a wonderful, cozy, comfortable cottage. It is located on a very quiet short street with access to a clean, friendly, beautiful beach. At night sitting on the patio you can hear the waves crashing. It is located within driving distance to all the attractions: the lighthouse; old St. Augustine; the alligator farm; and Marineland. The owner is a jewel and has furnished the cottage with everything you will need for a relaxed visit. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable place to land at the end of the day this is it!
