My wife and I spent two days in the middle of the week and we found the place so relaxing. There was everything we needed to cook and to enjoy the beach. The place was so clean that I did not even want to go home. We bought seafood and cooked in one night. The next night we walk down the beach to a little Italian restaurant and had a candlelit dinner. The place was enchanting and we had a couple of days at the beach that I will never forget.
This location is steps away from the beach. There were so many conveniences this stay that we will definitely return. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could need (not always the case in my cooking experience), there was a washer & dryer, and a private patio to barbecue on. There were some great breakfast places within a bicycle ride from the house, and several grocery stores nears by. My favorite part of the stay was morning coffee outside listening to the crashing waves. Martie was so very professional and made herself available to address any questions that arose. I highly recommend this property for a romantic or relaxing escape.
With a restaurant and Dollar General across the street on the west and the Atlantic Ocean within walking distance to the east, it is easy to land here and not even have to brave the crowds during tourist season unless you want to visit the many attractions the area is known for. With limited access to beach driving due to 4- wheel accessibility requirements and a parking shortage, the Crescent Moon is an easy walk to the beach ramps at Butler Beach without having to fight for a place to park....believe me, the lots fill up early! Eclectic shabby-chic beach decor makes this little bungalow a favorite place to hang out at one of St.John's counties most historic and beautiful beaches. Pull the wagon with a picnic down to the beach, enjoy, shower the salt off outside, and sit on the front patio and decide which one of the area's favorite seafood restaurants sounds good for dinner. Or the option is always there to pick up some fresh shrimp from the Seafood Shoppe, steam them in the fully equipted kitchen and peel and eat right there. The Crescent Moon is a romantic little hideaway but perfect for a family getaway as well. Location, location, location!
It was totally awesome! We stayed at the Cresent Moon. Such a homey and historic place. We loved it!
We enjoyed our stay at Crescent Moon last month. Our only 2 thoughts are there really is too much furniture for the size of the cottage, it would feel more open and spacious without and we had a slight problem with a smoke smell. Martie was right on it, asking the cleaning person to come in. We declined a full clean, walls etc., due to time. We felt it was in the bedroom carpet/padding. Easy fix.
Overall, good experience, well equipped home. Love the eclectic decor!
