Flagler Beach is the best of all worlds. This quaint little beach home is just steps from a secluded beach. It has a large backyard with ocean views and breezes. And there is a nice covered back porch to enjoy the sunrises. Flagler Beach has a farmers market every Friday and Saturday with a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Marineland (63 year old) is only 20 minutes away. There you can swim with the dolphins, snorkel, and scuba in the only 450,000 gallon ocean fed tank in the United States.
Washington Oaks State Park is only ten minutes away... a breathtaking beach with giant Coquina rocks dotting the shoreline. And don't forget to view the exquisite gardens! We are located centrally to all of Florida's best destinations.
World famous Daytona Beach is approximately 15 miles to the south, with all of the night life and action you can possibly handle. St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city, is approximately 30 minutes drive to the north. Orlando attractions are less than 90 minutes from your driveway.
There are many clear water springs for swimming, snorkeling, diving, or camping. Water is 72 degrees year round. Great for manatee encounters during winter months. Kennedy Space Center is approximately a one hour drive south. But the best of all, is Flager Beach, (better known as real Florida). It has unspoiled and uncrowded beaches. When you are tired of all the crowds and YOU WILL BE, come home and relax at your very own peaceful part of PARADISE.
You have an unobstructed view of the ocean from your back yard with the beach just a few steps away. And Flagler has a very large fishing pier within walking distance. Did somebody say SURFING? OH YEAH!!! Intracoastal Waterway five minutes. Did somebody say BOATING? OH YEAH!!! The perfect ending to your days will be the sound of the ocean as you fall asleep. Zzzzzzzzzz

When we found this house on VRBO, we thought it was too good to be true. We took a leap of faith and rented our first ever beach house for a full week. To say that we have been thrilled would be a huge understatement. The house is very sweet with all of the comforts of home, exactly as shown in the photos. Our one-minute walk to the beach was more than we could have hoped for. We made nearly all of our meals at home and found everything that we needed. Best of all was that our two dogs positively loved their daily morning beach walks and sunbathing in the fenced backyard. This was truly the best vacation our family has spent. We are ready to reserve a week next summer. Better yet, we are ready to move in on a permanent basis.
My wife and I always wanted to take our dog to the ocean and I must say this place was perfect. We had a very nice relaxing vacation. I don't write reviews very often, but if you are looking for a nice place to stay and just get away from everything - this will do the trick. The house was perfect, very clean and comfortable. The people in Flagler were very friendly and the beach was great. The house is located just far enough away, yet very close to many good restaurants and activities. I know we will be back. Carla it certainly was a pleasure and thanks for being so easy to work with.
There were four of us and our black lab. The house was outstanding. Coffee on the porch every moring to a beautiful sunrise. Each day spent on the beach with no other people within 100 yards in either direction. Surf fishing, reading and relaxing. Could not ask for more! Carla was wonderful to work with and went above and beyond helping us find the perfect place!
I stayed at this cottage July 17-24, 2010 with my boyfriend and 6 year old niece. This was my first time renting a cottage, so I was a little nervous but upon arrival I was so excited to see that the pictures were exactly as it is. The cottage is very clean and inviting. The decorations are fresh and "happy." The only negative thing I have to say which is so fault of the landlords is that DISH network was on the fritz every morning, so you could not access local channels until the evening. But that was really not a big deal. The best part is that when you walk out the back gate the beach is literally 2 minutes by foot away. The beach is much quieter than if you were closer to the pier. I initially thought I wanted to be closer to the pier, but I am so so happy we were a little further down. My niece had a wonderful time and was very comfortable in her room. Jeff & I had the "master" which has a queen bed and was very comfortable. The cottage is fully stocked with dishes, bowls, towels, beach toys/chairs, extra sheets /pillows. Make sure you go to the taco shop "Burrito Works." It is down the road on a side sheet towards the pier - it is phenomenal - Truly fantastic. Dont let its outside appearance scare you off - The food is truly amazing. Also the "beanery" is a great little coffee shop with great baked goods and awesome coffee. Our trip was fantastic and I truly reccomend doing business with Carla & Bill when looking for a cottage. Ill be back next year!
Our family of four - the kids are 6 and 4 years old - loved this house. We had plenty of room and everything we needed with washer/dryer, dishes, towels, microwave, etc. Even games, boogie boards and a charcoal grill! The house was very well-maintained. It looked good in the pictures and even better when we arrived! A great value, too.
