Direct ocean front condo on Crescent beach!
About Betsy Pepine
As a real estate broker, I love all things real estate. I grew up coming to Crescent Beach and now have one of my real estate offices there. I love St. Augustine and all it has to offer. In my free time, I rescue dogs, run, bake, read and travel the world. I have two daughters who also share my love of real estate and we manage these condos together.
Betsy Pepine purchased this Condo in 2018
Why Betsy Pepine chose Crescent Beach
We are one of the few places in St. Augustine Crescent offer ocean front views and allow pets and short term stays. The beach is also pet and car friendly.

Great beach access
Very clean and seconds away from the beach!
Beautiful little hideaway
Pool was clean and heated!
Beach walkway was beautiful and convenient. Watched the Gopher Tortoises below walkway, enjoyed them!
Access to beach was key!
Great location, close to everything!
Parking was never an issue.
Very quiet complex.
Only one bad thing to say, washer and dryer south end second floor are antiquated. Washed my clothes, took forever to cycle through. Dryer them and they came out smelling funky. I used Gain washer pod and Gain dryer sheet! Please replace these 2 machines as there are a number of lovely couples who stay there for a month or two!
Nice place. Thank you for the great accommodations!
Calm area Nicely updated
Betsy has done a lot of updates since the photos taken when I booked. She has remodeled her self nicely. Low key area for memorial day weekend. Not farm from anything you want to do. The beach and the sand dunes behind the hotel are beautiful. There's quiet a few tortoises roaming the dunes. Which was Amazing to watch. A Sea turtle laid her eggs while we were there! Perfect place for shell hunting. Would recommend .
Great place for low key vacation
Crescent Beach is one of the cleanest and well-preserved beaches I have traveled to in Florida. Our stay was wonderful. The condo was in a great location; short drive to St. Augustine for fun activities. The condo was comfy and just big enough for us. We will be staying again!!
Should have booked thru Beachers
We ended up with a substandard room and poor service by booking with vrbo. The room had did not conform to standard electrical codes. ( uncovered outlet, one outlet was unattached.). Creating a safety concern. The TV in the bedroom didn't work. The kitchen was poorly supplied with utensils and pans to cook with. Didn't even have a can opener. VRBO failed to provide the access code for entry so we had to stay in a hotel the first night. There was no housekeeping service for the entire two weeks. (Booking thru Beachers directly would have included housekeeping.) On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a three.
We have stayed at Beachers numerous times and always enjoyed it. Not this year.
I'm sorry to read this and very much appreciate the feedback. We have not had issues in the past. We immediately refunded the guest the first night's stay because the site did not release the door code. The TV does work in the bedroom. You have to keep the TV on channel 3 before using the remote and that confused some folks. The kitchen is stocked and this is the first I learned that the can opener is no longer in the unit. We will replace immediately. I will also inspect all the outlet. This unit was completely renovated last month so I'm not sure what outlets are damaged but will assess. We do not provide housekeeping during the stay. The cleaners come immediately prior to your arrival and immediately after your departure.
Relax and Enjoy
We found the place to be very relaxing. Area is low key , not busy with traffic. Enjoyed beach and pool. There is a restaurant next door, rest are a short drive. We are planning to return next year.
The front office has a variety of brochures of all the local attractions.
