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

  • 4 of 5
I'm so glad I chose to stay here instead of two other properties being considered. My main attraction in booking this unit was the close proximity to the beach. We were surprising my son with a Florida Spring Break vacation to meet relatives for the first time and spend time at the beach as NYC had a brutal winter this year and we needed this serene escape. The unit is literally across the street from the ocean, it's cozy, clean and a cute retreat for families and singles alike. The turtles were a huge hit with my son and every morning he would go out and see if he could see them enjoying their surrounding environment. The owner and caretaker were extremely accommodating and quick to respond to our inquiries. The bed is small and I would recommend a larger bed to facilitate those over six feet tall but that's minor compared to the beauty of the ocean views & sound, the stars at night and the fluttering butterflies surrounding the property. I definitely would stay here again and possibly stay in the upstairs unit with our dog!!
Thank you again, all our best and until next time ... Maria, Peter & Peter Anthony!

Owner's Response: Dear 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!
Kindly regards,
Andres

Disappointed, defrauded

  • 1 of 5
The pictures shown here are of the upper unit only. The lower unit is a completely different unit, it is very shabby. There is not a single door or window that opens or closes properly. The interior bedroom door drags against the ground so badly that you have to pull upward on both handles to get it to clear the floor. The kitchen cabinets are homemade plywood panels hung from narrow counter with no real shelves inside. Screen door is torn and doesn't have a door knob. The upper wraparound deck completely eclipses the lower unit. All of which would be dealable, but there is not one comfortable piece of furniture to sit on or eat at in the whole place. We began by shifting the resin adirondack chairs inside in the evenings, outside in the mornings and to the beach during the day. Finally, we gave in and went a thrift shop and brought three comfortable chairs. There are no beach amenities like chairs or umbrellas, so we wound up driving to Daytona Beach each day to enjoy The Plaza's comforts before resignedly returning to this hovel in the evenings.
We have used HomeAway in Florida twice before and were very impressed with the quality up until now.

Owner's Response: Owning a vacation rental and making it available to the public requires the appreciation of multiple perspectives. We each may expect different things from the same environment. It is through the feedback received from guests that we have maintained and improved this property over the 12 years we have been listed with this website. Our reviews have been very positive all along and we have implemented many suggestions made by guests. We take reviewers comments very seriously and try to use them as ways of improving the next visitors’ experiences.
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.
Thank you,
Andres Nazario

Perfect for beach lovers and golfers :)!!

  • 5 of 5
We love Casas de la Playa!! We have stayed there several times and every time we enjoy it even more. The views are awesome with the beach only steps away. We love staying in the top unit because we enjoy dinners on the deck to really take in the view. The rooms are cozy, the accommodations are very comfortable and we had everything we needed. This area is perfect for a quiet getaway and the location is great because you can easily get to St. Augustine or Daytona Beach if you want to enjoy a movie or some golf. They have beautiful golf courses near by. We like playing at Halifax Plantation Golf Club, it’s great. It’s a perfect place for beach lovers and golfers. We will definitely continue to come and enjoy Casas de la Playa. Thanks for everything Andres :)!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review, and for alerting golfers about the many nearby beautiful courses. It is always a pleasure when guests are appreciative of their surroundings. There are so many enjoyable things to do around that at times one may forget that the beach is just steps away. So when returning from playing golf, or any other activities, don't miss the sunrises and sunsets at the beach!
Thanks again,
Andres

A little slice of heaven steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here now four times and have thoroughly enjoyed each and every visit. We've stayed in both units and have nothing bad to say. The view from the top unit was utterly breath taking. Loved the turtles in the front yard and actually got a video this last visit of nature taking place...I will definitely be coming back, maybe for a winter visit just to get a glimpse of the whales hopefully!!! My husband and I fell in love with the quaint little town of Flagler about 10 years ago and someday hope to call it home. Thank you Andres for sharing your beach home with us. We always feel right at home when we visit.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review! It is great to have guests coming back over the years who continue to enjoy the wonderful view, and the natural habitat of the gopher turtles. Flagler Beach continues to be a quaint little town without tall buildings or overcrowded beaches; and yes, we have seen Right Whales during the winter months. Please hurry back "home".

Location

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

Nearest Airport : Daytona Beach at 20 Miles Nearest Motorway : I-95 at 3 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Several within walking distance at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Across the street at 100 Metres Car: recommended

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!
