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

Andre is an exceptional host: understanding of soulful situations; very good at communicating; and artful. This is our 2nd time being his guests. Flexible with family demands during our last stay, he showed us such kindness. Always with plenty of towels, sheets, sound systems and kitchen everythings, Andre's home rocks.

Awesome place; amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

I'm so happy I booked this vacation home. Everything was perfect, the place is kept very clean, and we even arrived to a welcome gift in the kitchen for us! I only wish that I knew that the dune crossover pictured directly in front of the property was washed away by Hurricane Matthew last year. The city is still working to restore the dune crossovers in Flagler Beach, but they haven't repaired the one in front of the property as-of May 2017. This is not Andres fault (obviously), so still a five start vacation rental! We ended up taking full advantage of the sun deck instead, and were still extremely satisfied with our stay. We may be back in the future. Thanks for everything!

Owner's Response: Dear Christa, Thank you so much for your review. I'm so happy you enjoyed yourselves. You are right, it is unfortunately that Hurricane Matthew blew away the crossovers to the beach in many areas of Flagler Beach including in front of our property. The road has been repaired, but we are still waiting for the crossover to be rebuilt, and the authorities keep telling us that it should be pretty soon, but nothing yet. One crossover has been rebuilt three short blocks to the north; and some people are getting down to the beach by walking carefully on the rocks. We look forward to having you back. Thanks again, Andres

Lovely time in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Flagler Beach to participate in Bike Week without the hassles of staying in Daytona. This was a lovely time in this apartment with great view of the beach, comfortable and with everything we could need. The weather cooperated and we enjoyed visiting Flagler Beach restaurants and bars. We really liked Seaside Grill on A1A, and the Funky Pelican by the Pier. We are ready to come back next year!

Easy Stay

  • 4 of 5

Very good experience, cute place for a couple trying to getaway for the weekend. Love the dog beach in front of the house, definitely a plus. Only reason I give 4/5 is the lock on the outside was very difficult to open to get the key out, we had to pry it open with some leverage, also wish you had a toaster, haha. Other than that good stay and would come again.

Owner's Response: Hi Ashley, Thank you so much for your review, and feedback. After you called letting me know of the difficulty opening the lockbox, I bought a new one and will be installed this week. I'm surprised to know that you did not find a toaster in the unit since all units are supposed to have a toaster or a toaster oven. I'll look into it and will replace it immediately. I'm glad you had a good time and that you enjoyed the beach. I look forward to your return. Thanks again, Andres

My new "Happy Place"!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Casas de la Playa and we weren't disappointed! The vibe of the condo is very relaxed and we love it. The view from the deck can't be beat. We were close to the great restaurants, winery and the pier. It is extremely clean and comfortable. We can't wait to return!

This is a wonderful place to stay for the right people.

  • 5 of 5

Casas de la Playa Alto was a great place to stay for several weeks! I think it likely has the best deck and ocean view of any affordable rental in the wonderful and unique town of Flagler Beach.

This is a smaller property, and is ideal for singles or couples. It's not luxurious by any means, but all the basics are there and it's tastefully decorated and clean. "Rustic but comfortable".

It's not immediately in the center of town, but there are restaurants and stores very close by, and it's only about a 3/4 mile walk to the pier area, which to me is a good trade off between convenience vs. peace and quiet.

I spent so much time on the deck...you probably will too. In addition to soaking up the beautiful weather, you will see gopher tortoises in the front yard, dolphins and maybe a whale in the ocean, and a variety of birds. So interesting and relaxing!

Andres the owner and Doug the local caretaker are absolutely "A1" as well. Laid back and friendly, but attentive to anything you may need.

As long as you are not expecting Hilton level amenities, and you understand that the unit is on the smaller side and best for singles or couples...maybe three people, you won't go wrong by staying here. I've already re-booked for an extended stay next year, and can't wait to return!
