About the Owner
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 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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I absolutely fell in love with the quaint Cozy Casas de la Playa! It was the perfect size for just the two of us. We slept with the windows open so that we could hear the ocean waves at night. We ate our breakfast and drank our coffees on the porch and watched dolphins play. The apartments are fun, and we loved the decorative touches. We hope to stay there again really soon, in fact we are planning a trip right now! The apartments are walking distance to several cute restaurants, and what more could you want than the beach across the street. We are learning to surf, and loved watching the waves in the morning and planning our surf sessions. Flagler is an adorable little town. Thanks for such a great stay!

A Serene Escape from the City
Thank you again, all our best and until next time ... Maria, Peter & Peter Anthony!
Thank you so much for choosing the downstairs unit at Casas de la Playa as your vacation destination. We are delighted to know that you had a wonderful experience and that the turtles cooperated in showing themselves - these are endangered species, and a treat when one gets to see them so close. Thanks for the toys left for future guests. We appreciate your comments and valuable suggestions. Please hurry back!
We have used HomeAway in Florida twice before and were very impressed with the quality up until now.
That said, I would like to put in perspective these reviewer’s comments. On the second day of their stay late at night I received a threatening call, peppered with insults and profanity by one of the persons staying at the unit, complaining because they did not know how to operate the Smart TV. After attempting to calm the individual, I offered a refund if they were dissatisfied. The next morning I sent an e-mail to the guest identified in the contract asking for clarification on any inconveniences they may be experiencing. There was no response to my e-mail, or any complaints to the caretaker of the property who stopped by the unit on a regular basis, including when someone, by mistake, put an container covered with aluminum foil in the microwave and destroyed it. I’m sadden that their experience was not what we had wished they had.
The pictures and descriptions of our duplex are accurate in representing both units, with each photo identifying upstairs or downstairs. In addition, we have a link to a video in the website that clearly shows both units. We invite future guests to call with any questions.
Perfect for beach lovers and golfers :)!!

From the Owner
“We have come to Flagler Beach since the early eighties. We love the quaint and tranquil evironment, 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.”
Activity and Interests
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!
