About Andres Nazario

My partner and I fell in love with this property over 15 years ago while we were both teaching in Gainesville, FL. We remodeled it for our weekend use since we lived only less than two hours away. We have been offering it as vacation rental since 2001. We now live in Miami Springs, and plan to retire in Flagler Beach in the future. I welcome your inquiries through this website, or by phone, or e-mail. I will respond quickly. Although we no longer live close to Flagler Beach, we visit often, and we have a local caretaker who attends to maintenance of the property and to the needs of our guests.

Andres Nazario purchased this house in 1999

Why Andres Nazario chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

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.

What makes this house unique

From this property you can watch the ocean all the time. During the winter months Right Whales may show up, and dophins 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

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 constelations 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!

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Flagler Beach and Andres were just what we were looking for. The beach was not only beautiful, but we felt like we were the only ones there at times. Sitting on the deck and enjoying the view was also amazing. Everything we needed was there and ready for us. Andres answered all our questions and took care of our one concern promptly. Thanks so much for all your assistance!! We had a wonderful time.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

La casita is a private, wonderful little rental across the street from Flagler Beach. It is cozy, has EVERYTHING you need (except for an iron) - we needed one because we were there for a wedding and our clothes needed some ironing after our trip. It is immaculately clean and sitting on the deck was like heaven. Andres Nazario was a wonderful host/owner - always ready and willing to assist and always available on the phone, which was a HUGE plus. One tip to future renters - Be sure to read the book in the living room - it has all kinds of information that is really helpful with your stay. LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!! Thank you Andres!!

Owner's Response: Dear Gladys and Jaime, Thank you so much for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for suggesting the need for an iron - had I known you were going to a wedding I could have provided one. I'm glad that sitting on the deck was like heaven. Please hurry back! Warm regards, Andres

Nice house - Great location - Beautiful View - Construction next door *

  • 4 of 5

Overall we were happy with our stay. Flagler Beach was a nice, quiet little beach town and I guess it's quiet because there are police everywhere. I will probably return some day as I really liked the small town, residential feel it had. There were no large hotels or even condo buildings like there are in Ormond or further south. It was nice and the beach was very clean and private.

We booked the house because it was simple, quiant and right at the beach. When we booked it we didn't know they were building a house next door and that construction would be going on and the view obstructed, so that was disappointing, but we were compensated for this inconvenience so it's all good. I do feel the property is overpriced now that I have stayed here and now that it does not boast the view and beach access it once had. If the price were lowered I would absolutely stay here again, but for the current price, I don't think so.

The house is equipped with all the basics you should need such as linens, towels, dishes, some cookware, toilet paper, paper towels, hand towels, dish soap, trash bags... You will need to bring your own spices, coffee and shampoo.

We found it to be very clean, but were not impressed with the sticky pad thing on the bottom of the tub- the mat thing some people use- it seemed rather gross, but that was the only thing that we found to be dirty or unappealing.

The internet worked great, but the TV only provides basic cable with very few channels, so make sure you bring some entertainment for rainy days.

I really liked the big front deck! The view was great! You may want to bring or buy some lounge chairs if you like to lay out, as there are only 4 chairs and a small table, but there is plenty of room to sit and relax, cookout, have a party, whatever. The deck is the best part!

Customer service was very prompt and friendly, but not as informative as one would expect. Be aware of the construction next door. There were machines and people working, so it was not as peaceful as we hoped because we were not made aware of this until we arrived and saw it - the ad had not been updated. Now the pics show the house being built next door, but it still isn't mentioned. Just a heads-up.

Other than the obvious, I don't have any complaints, but I will not stay here again. Mr. Nazario was very nice to work with and I appreciate him understanding our disappointment and correcting the situation, but I was not as impressed as I hoped I would be.
