Comfy Cottage at Crescent Beach - Stroll to the Beach

Comfy Cottage at Crescent Beach - Stroll to the Beach

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 22, 2014
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Please use e-mail for all inquiries.

Amazing Value and much more comfortable than a condo. Two blocks to the beach! You are just steps away out the front door to Crescent Beach and spectacular sunrises, or go out the back door to the Intracoastal waterway and watch the beautiful sunsets along the Matanzas River. There's really no point in driving to the beach since it is so close, but if you insist you can not only drive TO the beach, you can actually drive ON the beach! The public boat ramp is 1/4 of a mile away if you are a boat or jet ski enthusiast.

The cottage is two bedroom single family home (not a condo) and is completely furnished right down to the white picket fence. It is ideal for families or couples who need more space. It has two bedrooms, two full baths, and can comfortably sleep up to 5 people, with a double bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the other, and a sofa in the living room.

Better than we expected

  • 5 of 5
My wife,puppy & I loved this charming house like we were right at home! I could'nt beleive how close everything was to walk to as GoogleMaps did not relate the distances.This house had everything we needed & an awsome, working, dated stove/oven. We are not used to these ameneties & lax rules that the North Carolina beach rentals fall short on.Someone even mowed the lawn while we were there! Quiet neighborhood, too & you can fish all you want to w/ the ICW ramp right behind you.

Great cottage rental

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the cottage for a month in June. What a wonderful place to rest and relax .The cottage as clean and well maintained and has been updated to provide you some comfort, even a whirlpool bathtub .
It is located very close to the beach, at times I walked to the beach or you can park for free , if you so desire. It is located about 5 miles from Saint Augustine Beach and about 10 miles to all the historical sites in Saint Augustine.So you have the best of both worlds. I totally loved the quaint neighborhood, where neighbors were friendly.
Both Becky and Rick were extremely helpful with the cottage as a rental. They answered all my
questions and were more than happy to provide me with any information I asked.
My daughter and son -in -law stayed a week of my vacation and we had plenty of room to spare . My dog had a blast walking the neighborhood and the beach and of course , the fenced in back yard came in handy.
South Beach Grill is actually in the sand dunes going to the beach and the food was very good. Napoli's is also in Crescent Beach as was excellent. You can also take a free ferry ride to the Fort which is only 4 miles from the cottage , a nice trip.
The cottage, it's location, the owners and the closeness of the beach itself- a true slice of heaven ! I have plans to return next year and for this my daughter and son-in-law seem very happy ,
Thanks Rick and Becky for sharing your cottage .

GREAT rental

  • 5 of 5
I'm so glad we picked the Cottage for our stay. The Cottage was just that "A Cottage" with so much charm. The Owners were amazing. They even called to see how our stay was going and if we needed anything. Of course we did not. It is in a quite neighborhood and the beach is a short walk. I love Crescent beach and we will stay here again for our fall vacation. Thank you so much for a great vacation.

First, the good things: location, fenced yard for dogs, and wi-fi
The disappointing things: We stayed in the Cottage for the whole month of January. We packed for a month but were very disappointed to find that the owners left us very little space to unpack. Their personal "stuff" was everywhere - in all the closets, drawers, nooks and crannies. We ended up having to live out of suitcases for a month. The house was also very dirty. Dust was on everything. Food was left in the fridge and cupboards (some of it very old). The oven/stove was circa 1960 and one burner and the oven did not work. There was mold around the window frames. There was a very old foam toilet seat in the second bathroom that was so filthy we couldn't use it. We went out and bought and installed a new toilet seat The carpets smelled bad. There is not a comfortable place to sit or sleep in this house. The couches in the living room are very uncomfortable. The bed in the "master" is a very tiny double and the mattress is extremely hard. The twin beds in the guestroom are way too soft. There are no good reading lights in the house.
We were very disappointed with these accommodations and would not recommend them to anyone. In fact, we had friends who were going to visit us and we told them not to as they would have been so uncomfortable in the house.. .

Owner's Response: We’re very disappointed that Penny wasn't happy with our Cottage since it is an overwhelming favorite with most folks.

I will say that we did some updating of the kitchen in the late fall, and finished up a week before she arrived. We relocated some appliances, opened up the kitchen wall to make it more spacious, and installed a new bamboo floor. In the process we created a pretty good mess and there was drywall dust everywhere. We scrubbed and cleaned but that dust can work its way into everything. We apologize for not getting it all.

Some beds too hard some beds too soft, what can I say, it’s often a matter of preference. Becki and I work very hard to make our places comfy and homey and we’re mostly upset that we were never given a chance to make anything right. We weren't told that there were any problems until this review.

We initiated phone calls three times during their stay to see if everything was ok and never once did anyone mention any problems at all. For instance, staying for a month with a broken stove should have warranted a call. Had we known we could have told them to turn a switch to “manual” and solved it. ( By the way, she is correct about it being a 1960’s stove, it is. It’s a Frigidaire Flair, very retro and even has a fan club on the internet just Google it and see how cool it is. )

When all is said and done, we could have and would have made their stay much better all around if they had simply talked to us. We give everybody at least 3 contact phone numbers and e-mails to let us know of any problems. As you can see from the other reviews, this was a truly an exception to the rule.

Cozy Cottage at Crescent Beach

  • 5 of 5
Awesome quaint cottage with all the amenities. Rick and Becki have thought of everything, including beach gear. This is the second time we have stayed and it was better than the first. We will definitely come back again. The fenced yard is a blessing when you have two dogs, it takes the worry out of having to walk them first thing in the morning. The addition of a jacuzzi tub was wonderful and we made full use of it while we were there. The washer and dryer are a nice plus because we didn't have to come home with dirty clothes. All in all, I would highly recommend a stay if you want to get away from it all.

Best place to stay in Crescent Beach

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend staying at this cottage. It is very comfortable, very homey, and convenient to everything. The owners, Rick and Becki, were very welcoming and accommodating and made us feel right at home. The cottage is very spacious, offering a lot more room than you would find in a condo, and has a nice sized yard. We ate several times at Paula's Beachside Grill and recommend that as well. It is walking distance from the cottage, and has good food at a good price.
