This cozy duplex across the beach on A1A has full view of the ocean.
Each apartment (Casa Altos or Casa Baja) 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 vegatation
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.
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
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.
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.
Casas de la Playa is our home away from home! The pictures don't do this bungalow justice. The house is clean, comfortable and stocked with all the kitchen basics. It is set back from the road a bit, and has a nice, natural yard. Andres is a gracious host, and is very responsive during the booking process. We've stayed here several times and never had any issues. We'll keep coming back to our favorite Flagler beach home!
The view is fantastic! Casas is across the street from a perfect beach that you have almost all to yourself.
Very quaint and cute unit. Perfect for children to middle aged adults (parking area, walkways and stairs make it pretty hard for senior adults). Walkways/stairs/deck and yard area need some maintenance. Needs comfortable inside sitting furniture. Beautiful sunrises from inside unit or outside on deck. Very accessible to the beach, restaurants, stores, the pier, etc.
We chose this place for a relaxing beach location. It turned out to be everything we were looking for and more. We got to watch the moon rise and sunrise every day. We will be back for sure. All of the restaurants and bars in the immediate area were awesome. This house had everything that you may need. We look forward to a return visit.
It was our first time to this little gem, and I wasn't disappointed. The view was beyond perfect. My husband and I got up and 6 am, made our coffee and watched the sunrise every morning. Not only was the sunrise amazing, we were lucky enough to watch the Dolphins play as well. Absolutely perfect vacation and would recommend to anyone wanting that perfect getaway. The only complaint is we drove so far to be there, but once we got there it was well worth it. I'm sure we'll be visiting this little gem in the future, but only this time we'll be smart and fly. Thanks for giving us this wonderful experience.
As usual we had an amazing time and the upstairs cottage had an amazing view. You could hear the waves crashing even with the doors closed. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars this time is because the bed is so hard. I had trouble sleeping. Other than that we will be back ... maybe a different cottage next time as we have tried out 2 with Andres now. I don't suggest for people with small children.
Cutest little beach house ever.Perfect size accommodations for 2 adults and our 2 large dogs. First morning woke up at sunrise and spotted dolphin off the balcony! Can't wait to spend more time at this cozy and did I say VERY CLEAN little home away from home beach house.

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 across the street to the beach. 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!
