Bring the whole gang and enjoy breathtaking views of a quiet beach at our oceanfront Beach Haven house. With 2 complete living spaces under one roof, it's the perfect place for a family reunion, multi-generational group, or good friends traveling together.<br/><br/>Built on 2 lots, Beach Haven is truly private, with plenty of yard space on 3 sides and nothing but the undergrowth, dunes, and sand on the fourth! Boasting ground-floor patios and 2nd storey wraparound decks, our home is ideal for folks who like plenty of separate spaces to talk, play, and enjoy the unique beauty of Palm Coast. There's even a loft hideaway with 2 single beds, just waiting to become the kids' clubhouse!<br/><br/>Each of the 2 floors in this house contains a kitchen and living area plus 3 bedrooms, so it's easy to divide the space into separate quarters if desired. The main kitchen is on the second floor, which also offers the best ocean views. But there is space for everyone and views aplenty in our homey wood-paneled house!<br/><br/>The second-story main deck will amaze you, meandering around corners and offering lovely views in 3 directions. (There is also a private balcony from the master bedroom!) This is likely to be the place you'll remember most about Beach Haven, with its casual dining and seating and spectacular vistas. Hear the waves crash and the seabirds call, and inhale that refreshing sea breeze! If you make it out to the deck early enough, you'll even have front-row seating for the sunrise, which is an unforgettable sight.<br/><br/>Going indoors from the main deck, you enter the living room, a high-ceilinged marvel of a space with a giant brand-new HDTV, comfortably cushioned rattan furniture, and plenty of floor space for those late-night karaoke performances and raucous charades! The ocean views from this room are incredible through the double set of sliding glass doors!<br/><br/>You'll never want to stir from the living room, but the troops must be fed, and our kitchen makes it bearable with ocean views above the sink! The tile floor feels good on hot "beach feet" too, and the blond cabinetry and white appliances lighten the room still further. Prowl around the cupboards and you'll find enough cookware, utensils, dishes, and gadgets to prepare and serve just about anything -- we've got everything you need down to the last corkscrew and water glass! Of course, if you're on a strict restaurant and take-out diet this vacation, the microwave is great at re-heating!<br/><br/>The dining room on the second floor has a big table and plenty of chairs, but unless it's raining outdoors, you may find it deserted in favor of the deck. Instead, it's often turned into a computer and game center, with teens updating their Facebook status ("The sand here is the color of cinnamon!"), parents checking the opening times of the next sightseeing attraction on their laptop (you have free wireless Internet at Beach Haven), and little ones coloring or lining up the shells they've collected on the beach. This area also contains the stairs up to the loft (bedroom #7).<br/><br/>The second-story master bedroom is a delight, with an ultra-comfy king-sized bed, TV, en suite bathroom, and view of the ocean through a huge picture window. One of the 4 full bathrooms in our house is attached to this room, meaning you have no reason to leave the suite until you absolutely must go down to the beach!<br/><br/>The second floor contains another bedroom with a king-sized bed, this one with a private ocean balcony. The third bedroom contains a snug queen-sized bed & the 2nd floor living room includes a queen sofa sleeper. The 3rd floor loft counts a bedroom #7 with 2 single beds.<br/><br/>The 1st floor is impressive as well, with a sizeable kitchenette, a family room containing a new HDTV & a queen-sized sleeper sofa, 2 bedrooms (one with a king & queen & a private patio with ocean view, the other with a queen & a single!), and 1 bedroom with a double bed. Beds for 14 altogether at Beach Haven, & 2 bathrooms on each floor!<br/><br/>Our wide, almost deserted beach is your personal paradise.
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.
The house hasn't been cleaned properly.We had to clean the floor and tried to get rid of a bad smell in the kitchen.The furniture,overall maintenance of the house was totally BAD!No TV worked,we called to find out about the water not running...NOBODY called us back. LOCATION of the house is perfect but the house was not up the our standard!!!!
Overall it was not worth what was charged. the pictures on the web site were misleading and led to higher expectations. the staff was very responsive and took care of issues in a timely matter.
The house is in a beautiful location, situated just a couple of hundred steps to the ocean. The ocean view from the deck is incredible-perfect to watch the sunrise and dolphins in the morning. We had 6 families--19 people--ranging from 9 months to 70 years and we had plenty of room--lot of space to spend time together as a group, but also enough space to 'retreat' for some privacy. We never felt like we were on top of each other. There were built-in child safety gates available for each staircase, which was nice for the peace of mind of the parents. The house had ample dishes, cutlery, cooking utensils, towels, bedding. Based on previous reviews, we knew this would be an older house. Dated, would be a good way to describe it. For the most part, everything (appliances, lighting, etc) functioned properly and the house was clean, however some of the repair work was a bit "stick and tape." Things like black electrical tape around chandelier, pink Hello Kitty Bandaid on the sliding glass door, bungee cord holding leg of the outdoor table together, folded paper keeping dining table from wobbling). If you can overlook aesthetics, then the house serves the purpose well. The beach itself was gorgeous, clean and uncrowded. Vacation Rental Pros was a pleasure to work with. We had to change houses 3x within the 48 hour perieds due to logistical issues, and they were very helpful through the entire process. (They even send an email during the vacation with a reminder for garbage day). Overall, it was a very pleasant experience, and we had a great time. I would likely book this house again for a future stay.
My boyfriend and I invited all our children and grandchildren to the beach over Spring Break. There were 13 of us. The house is an older home, very eclectic and mostly comfortable. The upstairs den, kitchen and dining area is small for 13 people but we made it work. The showers in a couple of the bathrooms were TINY!!! We had to use the showers in the main bathroom upstairs and the master downstairs. The large yard is beautiful and we saw a large turtle 2 days of our visit. The downstairs is dark and very dated so all spent time upstairs except for sleeping. Overall it was a great trip and if we came with fewer people, we may consider renting this house again.
Quiet beach house on a dead end road - no traffic, quiet beaches. Gorgeous views of the beach, you can hear the waves all day! We filled the house to the max - some of the beds had sand in the sheets (maybe they were washed with beach towels?). We're a very tidy bunch - so we felt the need to sweep and redo some beds. But - overall, great beach getaway.
Excellent location - near historical, scenic, & tourist things + a GOOD Publix! Best part is the ocean almost in your front yard. Next best is the large grassy yard for the teens to toss footballs - (beats TV) when not swimming. The "basement" served its purpose, but the main(upper) floor was very homey and pleasant - especially the outdoor deck for A.M. sunrises etc. Thanks for a good beach week!
