Overview

About the property

Cozy Casas de la Playa is an ideal location for experiencing Florida vacationing

Bajos:

Watching the ocean, day and night, from your living room or kitchen makes an incredible beach vacation. Being across the street from the beach makes it that much better. You can have that when you stay at Bajos Apartment at Casas de la Playa Beachside. This downstairs unit offers a one bedroom (queen size bed), one bath retreat with full kitchen, central heating and air, and everything you need to make a memorable holiday. The unit, with ceramic tile floors, is simply furnished in an old Florida vacation style. As with all Casas de la Playa properties, the apartment is fully equipped from pots and pans to linens and towels. Facing the ocean you can spend time relaxing on the covered front porch and observing nature in your habitat protected front yard (you may see one of several gopher turtles that call it home). Or, you also have the option of relaxing in your own private fenced terrace at the entrance to Bajos – great place for a picnic or take in a private tanning session. Amenities include Wi-Fi and flat screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom. Bajos has all it takes to escape to the beach.

As a part of Casas de la Playa Beachside, Bajos is hidden away in a sleepy residential neighborhood by the ocean. Located several blocks south of the Flagler Beach Pier, you are still close to large variety of shops and restaurants, but out of the direct push of tourist traffic. Stay at Bajos, and live like a native.

Notes:
Flagler Beach is a quaint and unspoiled beach community like there are not many left in Florida. An ideal place to get away from it all, relax, enjoy the beach, the sounds of the ocean, the many different birds, and at night look up into the sky and you'll have a spectacular show. Moonless nights are magnificent. Watching the full moon raise over the ocean is a very unique experience. Want more excitement? There are nice bars, restaurants, a lot of activities in the downtown area. St. Augustine is 45 minutes away and the ride on A1A is very nice. Orlando is one and a half hour away. Daytona Beach less than 30 minutes away, and the Kennedy Space Center about an hour away.

Quaint home with perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I visited this home for a weeks get-a-way after the passing of my father. Mr. Nazario was amazing to work with and made the reservation/ check in process simple and smooth. The home was beautiful and located directly across from the beach with amazing views of the ocean. The home had everything we needed... plenty of linens, towels, dishes, etc to make our stay comfortable. There was even a bottle of wine in the home for us at check in. Thank you for all of your help Mr. Nazario. We will definitely be returning!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cute place is clean, comfortable, and just a hop/skip/jump from the ocean! We spent a lot of our time sitting outside on the covered downstairs patio which provided a cooler, shaded spot to enjoy the beautiful ocean view, even during a thunderstorm. Andres is wonderful and made everything super easy. There was even a nice bottle of wine waiting for us when we checked in to celebrate our anniversary. The patio was a great place for our dog to relax with us, too. There are several places within walking distance, we had breakfast at By the Sea Cafe next door a couple times. We enjoyed Flagler Beach! Would love to go back sometime and would recommend this place to anyone.

The Best of Flagler Beach

  • 5 of 5

Great little place tucked away in a quiet neighborhood and facing the beach. Flagler Beach is great to move around in a bicycle. We had a great time.

About Andres Nazario

My partner and I bought this property in 1998 with the intention of retiring here some day. We have completely restructured and remodeled it, and has been listed as a duplex with this website since 2001. At the time we purchased this property we lived and worked in Gainesville, home of the University of Florida, only a one and a half hour away. For several years we spent most of our weekends here. Now, we live and work in Miami, and therefore come here less often, but since we own five other vacation rental units in Flagler Beach, we have a local caretaker that keeps up with constant maintenance and improvements, and we visit at least once a month.

Why Andres Nazario chose Flagler Beach

We have come to Flagler Beach since the early eighties. We love the quaint and tranquil environment, without franchises, or high-rise buildings. This is a wonderful beach community with the flavor of old Florida beaches, unrushed, friendly, and the beach is never crowded. Often you can look in both directions while sitting on the sand, and see no one, or one or two people in the distance. On weekend, a few more people show up. Almost everything is walking distance, if you like to walk, or a very short driving distance with ample parking everywhere. This cozy duplex across the beach on A1A has full view of the ocean.

Each apartment (Casa Altos or Casa Bajos) is fully furnished and has one bedroom, bathroom, living area, full kitchen, microwave, cable TV, and central heating

and air. Each unit is simply but tastefully decorated to accommodate Florida vacationing at its best. Enjoy the ocean breeze from the living room or bedroom. Watch for dolphins while preparing meals or your favorite drink. In winter, Right whales have been spotted from

this location. During Spring and Summer the birds and vegetation are wonderful. This is an idyllic place for a weekend, a week, or a longer stay. We are located only a few blocks south of the Flagler Beach Pier and close to shops and restaurants. This is a non-smoking unit.

What makes this apartment unique

The most attractive aspect of Flagler Beach is its peacefulness and small beach community charm. There are no franchises on the beach, nor high rises. There are several small local restaurants and cafes with excellent food, a couple of galleries, some nice bars, and a friendly neighborhood.

Marineland is 10 minutes north, and Daytona Beach is 20 minutes south. Historic St. Augustine is a half-hour drive away, and Orlando and Disney are within an hour's drive. Major airports are within an hour and a half drive.

The sunrises are fabulous at this time of the year. Sit and relax on the porch, or take a chair to the beach. The beach walkover is one and a half block north. The ocean water temperature is cool this time of the year, and the sun is bright and warm. At night sit and contemplate the constellations and the planets from anywhere, the balcony, the beach, or walking around the neighborhood! This is an ideal place for moon lovers, and star gazers. Fish from the beach, or from the nearby pier. Bring your own bicycle and enjoy riding around this small community! From this property you can watch the ocean all the time. During the winter months Right Whales may show up, and dolphins are visible year round. There are also at least two gopher tortoises calling our front yard their home. These are protected species and if you don't get too close they will move around while feeding on the vegetation without much concern.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“From the moment we arrived we started to relax. The apartment has been decorated so lovingly from eclectic artwork & cute dishes, to comfortable and casual furnishings. The kitchen is well-equipped for making simple meals and snacks. There was a bottle of wine awaiting us - what a nice touch. The beach is directly across the street and the sound of waves can be heard from the porch. We walked almost every day on the beach and the surrounding lovely neighborhood. Walking on the ever-changing, beautiful beach never got old. There are several great restaurants within walking distance as well. The town is so cute and really laid-back. Andres, the owner, was so easy to work with via email. He answered my questions quickly and invited me to ask more. Doug, the caretaker, lives nearby if you need anything and is so welcoming and friendly. We also met Rita and she was extremely friendly too. All in all we had a wonderful month and hope to return someday.”

“We loved the location and access to the beach. The accommodations are very comfortable.”

“My interactions with Andres were great - no improvement needed.”
