About Martie McLean
I'm 70 years old and I live in Ocala, Florida. I have rented the front of the property for 8 years and have had fantastic reviews through other vacation websites. 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.
Martie McLean purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Martie McLean chose Saint Augustine
Butler Beach is one of the nicest beaches in Florida. I wanted a place in this quaint little neighborhood.
What makes this Cottage unique
Private, quiet, and inexpensive. It is not a condo scene with stairs and noise from other guests. Pets are welcome but no more than two pets allowed. 1st pet is free, 2nd pet is $10 a night . 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.

Solo Trip w/ dogs
I booked this stay just a few days in advance and felt lucky that it was available for the three nights that I was looking for. The description matched exactly what I was looking for and I appreciated that dogs were allowed as my husband travels for work and I needed to bring them along with me. Once I arrived the check in process was simple. The cottage was tidy and bright and in a quiet neighborhood just a block from the beach. I had some trouble connecting to the WiFi, but I contacted Martie and she resolved the problem quickly. Over the period of my visit, I had a few minor issues that occurred, but Martie was helpful and gracious and refunded one of my three nights, which was entirely unnecessary, but I appreciated her willingness to make my stay great. As a regular VRBO traveler, I could make a few small suggestions that might make it a really great cottage amazing. Security lights on the front porch/side drive would give peace of mind to those single travelers as the street is completely dark and the only light I found was for the carport. Possibly more window coverings in the kitchen area during evening time basically for more privacy. Otherwise, this cottage has everything you need and it's location is very convenient. Overall, Martie is very helpful and quick to respond as I believe she truly wants her guests to have a wonderful stay. I most certainly would book again if staying in the area of Crescent Beach/Butler Beach. It's a perfect spot. Thanks Martie!
A Very Relaxing Couple Getaway
Great location! Easy to book and complete rental agreement. No problems.
Thank you so much for the 5 star review. The location is really great and easy to go anywhere and do just about anything. Please come again.
Loved the Crescent Moon!
This place is wonderful! The pictures don’t do it justice. Martie has done an amazing job of decorating and furnishing it with everything you need for a fantastic stay. One block from the beach, less than fifteen minutes from the historic district in St. Augustine. Compliments to the housekeeper. The place was spotless and has the most comfortable bed I’ve slept in at a rental. Martie is a joy to work with. We will definitely be staying here again!
This is a special review! Thank you so much. I have worked hard on the beds. It required a great Saatva mattress and then a sturdy, special order support underneath it all. Thankyou for the compliments to the housekeeper. She works hard to please me and my guests.
We really enjoy how close we are to the beach and great restaurants
Had a Great Time!
We stayed in the Crescent Moon Cottage over the Memorial Day Weekend. We loved it. Close to the beautiful beach and restaurants. Cottage was larger than we expected. Very clean. We loved the Courtyard and the Front Porch was so nice in the evening with the Ocean Breeze. Would highly recommend. We hope to return soon. Thanks for a great get away! Bonnie and Charlie
Beautiful as we remember from our last stay. Clean and neat with all that you need for a great stay.
