“Adorable beach cottage!”
Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is my first experience on Flip Key and I am so happy with my choice of The Crescent Moon. Martie has definitely thought of all of the things you would need to feel at home while you're on vacation. The cottage was comfortable, clean and very nicely decorated. I loved the fact that we were able to bring our dog with us too! We enjoyed walking to the beach with him and playing in the ocean every night. The dog bath was a nice touch too! As odd as it sounds, I really enjoyed the laundry room purely based on the fact that we went home with a suitcase full of CLEAN clothes! :-)
Martie was so nice and called us to check to make sure all was well and if we needed anything, which was very sweet of her. We didn't want to leave this cozy little beach town! Next time we're in the area, we will definitely stay again.

“Neat, Cozy, Relaxing little beach spot !”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a wonderful stay at the Crescent Moon. Martie has really put together a nice spot for a beach getaway. The cottage was tastefully decorated, with a beach theme. She left little notes with tips throughout,to make our stay very easy. Just what we were looking for ! The place was very neat and clean. We will definitely stay again if we ever get back in the area !

“Perfectly comfortable house close to the beach with everything you need!”
Reviewed 27 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We loved staying at Martie's house. You can tell she loves that house. It is evident in the care and decor. We loved the beach cady and umbrella and the short walk to a very quiet beach. All the suggestions we tried from the book were accurate. Lots of good recommendations. We had our dog with us and there were many friendly dog owners on the beach with well behaved dogs. We will go again in the future. St Augustine is a short 10 minutes away and New Years Eve was magical!
Thanks Martie for sharing your house with us.

“Comfort a Few Steps From the Sea”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

This tidy, comfortable cottage is just a 5-minute walk to the ocean and the beach there is clean and very pretty. It has great amenities--all of the kitchen goodies you would need to cook, linens and a giant screen TV if it rains. The owner put a lot of thought into the personality of the place and if you were thinking of a "girlfriends get away" it would be a perfect place to go--lots of little touches that make it extra special. The owner is a good communicator and rules for getting back your deposit are very clear and easy to follow. Close to restaurants and shops. Enjoy!

“Perfect weekend vacation cottage!”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014
2
people found this review helpful

I stayed at the cottage with my parents over a long weekend. We loved having a kitchen to cook and grill fresh seafood. My parents loved drinking coffee on the covered patio in the morning. We were right around the corner from the beach and you only have to walk on a private neighborhood road (not busy street) to get to the ocean. My dad loved watching his football and baseball on the big screen tv, and I was able to do some schoolwork thanks to the wifi. The place is perfect for a small family. The pullout bed was comfortable with the down topper and was basically in its own separate room. We could not have asked for a better stay and plan to come back in the future. Also, Martie called to make sure we got in okay and didn't need everything!
