About the Owner

I'm 66 years old and I live in Ocala, Florida. I have rented the front of the property for 6 years and have had fantastic reviews through other vacation websites. I have just begun to advertise through Flip Key. I also have a rental at Dekle Beach Florida that keeps me busy during scalloping season. I take great pride in my beautiful places and am very responsive to any of our guests' needs. I do not live locally but can be there in 2 hours. I have a team of folks that help me with any issues you may encounter. I am available by phone but especially by email. The lovely apartment is tastefully decorated and fully furnished. I want nothing more than for you to have a wonderful time at Ooo Laa Laaah and the Crescent Moon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time during our stay. The cottage was great. Very clean, cozy and well supplied. One of the cutest places we've stayed at and in a really good location. The beach was great and St. Augustine was amazing. We will definately be back and hopefully soon.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the Crescent Moon! It was cute and comfortable. The location could not have been better! It was so close, we went to the beach three or four times a day. The section of Butler Beach was clean and fairly quiet. The accommodations were exactly as described, and the cottage was bigger than we thought it would be! There was plenty of room for the two of us and our dogs. The only downside was not being able to stay longer! Already thinking about next Spring Break!

Fabulous Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I (and our Jack Russell) just spent three nights in this splendid place! It is bigger than it appears in photos and very clean. It is very apparent that the owner, Martie, really looks out for her guests as the place has everything! The walk to the beach is short and enjoyable! There are two great restaurants within walking distance -- Haszard's and Redfrog and McToads! Loved everything about the trip except it wasn't long enough! We will return as soon as we possibly can!

Gem on Crescent Beach

  • 5 of 5
What a great place, it was absolutely perfect! The cottage was very clean and you can tell Martie takes extra care to make sure everything is in order. The cottage appears bigger than in the posted photos. The beach is around the corner and an easy walk. What a great beach, it was hard to leave! The front porch was comfy and a great place to hang out, dry off after a swim and enjoy the sea breeze. We were able to hit the beach at least 2 times a day and also play tourist in close by St. Augustine. The Crescent Moon will definitely a place we come back to! Thanks Martie!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review! I am so glad you enjoyed the front porch. In the nighttime you can hear the waves of the ocean. Also a great place to watch the rain fall and the palm trees blow. Please come back! Martie

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We've been vacationing at St. Augustine/Crescent Beach for years, staying in condos or a hotel but this cottage was the perfect place for my husband and I. It was a wonderful place to enjoy some rest and relaxation! Martie was there when we arrived and made sure all was to our satisfaction. The cottage was clean and comfortable, the neighborhood quiet and peaceful. The walk to the beach was a short easy walk. You couldn't ask for a nicer beach! It was also nice to drive up and walk just a few short steps to your door. The walk in shower was a plus. The patio was a nice quiet getaway for some alone time or to read. We enjoyed our short stay so much we are already looking forward to staying longer next time!

Owner's Response: The Crescent Moon offers so much more than a condo or hotel room. Fully furnished, quiet and private. Thank you for the super review to let those who have always gone to a condo in Florida that there is a better spot and this is it!

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect little beach cottage! If you are on a budget, like me, and need to get away this is your place!! My husband and I just arrived this morning and fell in love immediately. The owner Martha is very quick to respond to inquiries and more than accommodating! This place is perfect for the couple that wants to run away to the beach. So cute! Love the jasmine covering the patio fence.

Private, quiet, and inexpensive. It is not a condo scene with stairs and noise from other guests. Pets are welcome. The house has no steps to get into the home. All amenities are there. I take care of it as it is my home away from home when I need it.
