Sitting on the edge of Flagler Beach with a sweeping view of the cinnamon sand and sparkling surf is Sunshine House, our newly renovated vintage bungalow. Boasting brand-new furniture, a cool retro décor, and unbeatable ocean views, it's THE place to stay!<br/><br/>Like something straight off the set of Mad Men, Sunshine House is a mid-20th-century cube of a house, with a flat roof and pastel colors. It sits on a prime double lot, beachfront, with a huge backyard overlooking the sea. But though it may look modest from the outside, once you step into Sunshine House, you realize you've found a truly special home-away-from-home.<br/><br/>Completely remodeled with terrazzo floors and a designer's eye, Sunshine House can only be described as a "swingin' beach pad"! Turn on the radio in here and you expect to hear the latest hit from the Rat Pack or news from the Kennedy White House! It's sheer fun to look at, super comfortable to stay in, and a conversation piece you'll dine out on all year. Bring the good camera and get ready to fill your Facebook page with new photos!<br/><br/>The wide open living and dining area is a awash in sunlight and pale tones, from the gleaming terrazzo floors to the huge powder-blue sectional that seats 8 comfortably and includes a lounger. Two ottomans in this room unfold into twin beds, accommodating any overflow of guests. (And you WILL have an overflow of guests once people find out about this place!) A giant 45" HDTV with DVD player stands ready to entertain -- after all, vintage is a great style, but there's nothing to beat modern appliances! <br/><br/>Sliding glass doors from the living room lead out to the back patio, where ultra-comfortable lounge and Adirondack chairs await you, and a funky little pavilion with a picnic table offers oceanside dining in the shade. (It has also been known to act as a pirate ship on rocky seas to imaginative children!) The décor here is desert modern -- no prickly undergrowth to worry about, which is great for the kids.<br/><br/>The living area of Sunshine House also includes a "formal" dining table and a neat diner-style banquette with an ocean view. You'll love the square white table set about with lime-green molded chairs, and the diner-style banquette is equally appealing with its booth seating. (Kids' table, anyone?) And if you wind up eating outdoors to the murmur of the sea, repurpose these tables into game or computer spaces (you have free wireless Internet here). They're just waiting for a heated Cranium match or an all-night poker game!<br/><br/>Beyond the dining area is our kitchen, thoroughly modern and spotlessly appointed. The wide, glossy tiles feel so good on your feet after a day at the beach! Our knobless blond cabinetry filled with cookware and utensils, the sleek breakfast bar, and the gleaming white appliances may just convince you to cook a homemade meal . . . or not. They work great for drinks and snacks too, and Palm Coast has fabulous restaurants! <br/><br/>After all the fun of a day at Flagler Beach, it's great to retire to the comfortable bedrooms at Sunshine House. The master bedroom is cool and breezy, with a king-sized bed, new HDTV with DVD player, and doors leading outside. <br/><br/>The 2nd bedroom offers a queen-sized bed and wall-mounted HDTV. Both it and the third bedroom are located on the mezzanine level. And the third bedroom is the perfect children's space, with a queen bed and a bunk with a twin on top, double on bottom. This room also has a wall-mounted HDTV, which is very handy when the pillows start flying!<br/><br/>Two full & 1 half bathrooms keep everyone happy at Sunshine House. The master bath is palatial, with a separate bathtub and shower, split-level design, and high window for natural light. (The washer & dryer are also stashed here.) The 2nd bathroom offers bold retro aqua & white tile plus a big shower. And the half-bath off the living room is convenient for all.<br/><br/>Sunshine House is a unique beach bungalow, the perfect blend of retro and modern, with the emphasis on comfort. The views are astonishing & the livin' is easy!
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
A beautiful, clean and well furnished property in an ideal location. Shops, bars and restaurants just a short drive away and the wonderful beach literally on the doorstep....what more could you possibly wish for?!
We enjoyed the lacation and the house worked out very well.
Perfect locations - close to Flagler Beach and St. Augustine. House was very clean. Enjoyed it with my friends from Michigan. Beautiful sun rises!!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Flagler Sunshine House. We brought our Golden Retreiver, Daisey with us and she had a blast on the beach. We had a great week - enjoyed the beachside shelter - sat there each day looking out over the ocean, catching some sun and that lovely ocean breeze. We will be certain to return.
What a great location! Flagler Beach is such a wonderfully relaxing area, and the private beach at the Sunshine House is perfect for those with kids and dogs. We will certainly be vacationing here again. One word of advice for those renting this house... the back yard is completely covered in medium river stones, and will destroy bare feet! My soles are still bruised after days back home. This would be the only thing I would change at this beach house. The neighbors have a manicured green lawn that lures one to wish for turf. All-in-all we had an epic stay!
We had an absolute fabulous vacation. The house is perfect for family gatherings and love it's location. Flagler is a great comunity and you have your own private beach.
