About Shayla Gerling

We discovered the wonderful beach town of Flagler Beach 28 years ago while on our honeymoon. Since then we have returned several times each year to re-live the magic of this unique little oasis. After renting this Villa for many years, we discovered it was available and jumped at the chance to own a piece of paradise! Since we live in Cincinnati and sadly cannot be here year round, we have the opportunity to offer our Vacation Villa to our family, friends, and a few guests here and there. You won't find any valet parking or bell hops here. However, after you park your car just outside the unit and take your bags through the beautiful courtyard/pool area to your very own Villa, we believe you will agree with us. There is magic in this little town and it is definitely a 5 star destination without the 5 star prices!...

Shayla Gerling purchased this villa in 2012

Why Shayla Gerling chose Flagler Beach

This beach town is special. You feel it when you cross over the Intercoastal Waterway (ICW) and see the panoramic views with the aquamarine backdrop of the Atlantic. You feel it when everyone you pass waves or says 'Hi'. You feel it when you take that big sigh of relief as you enter the 'no stress zone' we call home.

*Fine Dining in town- Blue, Turtle Shack, Rossi’s, La Mer;

*Family dining -The Pier Restaurant, Martin's, Fish Market, Golden Lion,;

*Daytona Beach & it's wonders, 20 min. south on the A1A

*Historic & beautiful St. Augustine just North on A1A or I 95;

*Orlando theme parks a little over 1 hour inland.

*Friday and Saturday Farmer's market in town square one block away

*Surf board & bike rentals by the pier half block away

*Launch ramp and world of intracoastal fishing minutes away *Canoe/kayak rentals in Tomolkate Park

What makes this villa unique

This town is unique in many ways. It hasn't changed a whole lot in the last fifty years and that was no accident. Highrises are not permitted so we can keep the Old Florida feel. The beach is certainly never crowded and runs as far as you can see in either direction. There are no buildings allowed on the ocean side of A1A so the beach seems to be just for you. Nearby Tomoka Park with it's canals, paths and incredible Jungle is a natural treasure filled with wildlife. Princess Preserves is a newly discovered favorite ...wildlife, kayaking, nature trails under huge Oak Canapies as old as Florida itself. Yes, Flagler Beach is the kind of town where sand sometimes drifts across the walkway of City Hall. There are no big chain fast food places in sight. The Farmers Market on Fridays and Saturdays is a great way to celebrate the locals and pick up fresh everything. Yet a 15-20 minute drive in either direction finds you in Old St. Augustine or Daytona Beach and the Speedway...We really do consider this to be paradise and are very proud to give you the keys for a time. Relax and enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Your condo is immaculate, and completely stocked with just about everything one

could need to make for a pleasant stay. We never had been in Flagler Beach and

it did not disappoint us. The short walk to the beach and pier afforded us many

opportunities to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. The close

proximity to Publix and many restaurants was a plus. The pool right outside our

door offered us many lazy hours of reading and swimming in a calming

environment. Because our stay included a Friday and Saturday we took full

advantage of the Farmers market. What a treat is was to eat vine ripened just

picked fruit and vegetables. The seedless watermelon was just amazing. We made

short work of it.

Also, it was reassuring to know that the unit was surrounded by a locked fence

and gate so that only residents could have access to the area. The washer/dryer

also was a much appreciated convenience.

All in all we thank you for the opportunity to stay at you home. We recommend

Plaza Caribe highly.

Wonderful, relaxing weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for a weekend, girls getaway. A block from the beach and walking distance to tons of restaurants, shops, bars and even a winery. We didn't use our cars to go anywhere all weekend. The place was clean and looked newly remodeled. And the pool was great to hang out by when we needed a break from the beach. We'll definitely be back again.

The condo was in a great location and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If I ever return to Flagler Beach, I will not hesitate to stay at the same condo. It was clean, stylish and comfortable. It is located minutes from the beach and there are some lovely restaurants that are walking distance. I would highly recommend staying at this condo if visiting Flagler Beach.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is nice and in the perfect location in my favorite town. You can park your car and walk everywhere to go fishing, shopping, eat out, farmers market, bars, parks. This unit had the ability to enter from the courtyard / pool (into the bedroom) or from the street (into the living room) which was convenient. I'd definitely stay again some day. If I could move to Flagler Beach this would be a great location to live!

The kitchen had all the pots, pans, and utensils we needed to cook. There were even some paper plates, plastic storge containers, etc. In the bedroom closet, we found some beach chairs and an umbrella. The coffee table is also a storage chest where blankets and pillows for the pull out couch can be found. The managers were accommodating emailing me detailed directions to get the keys and check in on my own schedule.

One thing to note - there is a bit of a lack of privacy in the bedroom when a 3rd person is staying on the pullout couch as there's no bedroom door. Not a big deal but might be worth mentioning to save someone else an inconvenience.

Owner's Response: Thank you, we appreciate you taking the time to let us know that our Property met your expectations. The central location to numerous activities, restaurants, and bars is always a plus that our renters find convenient. We also appreciate your honesty regarding the lack of privacy in the bedroom. Typically this unit accommodates two adults and maybe a child so privacy is generally not an issue. Because we take our reviews very seriously, we will be looking into a solution based on your experience.. As always, thank you for visiting Plaza Caribe and we hope to see you on your next Flagler Beach vacation!

I love this place. It's the 3rd time my family has stayed here. I will never stay anywhere else when we visit Flagler. It's clean, updated, safe, convenient, close to everything, and comfortable.

Great Location- Super Clean!!!

  • 5 of 5

We could have not had a better room and location for our vacation with our young children. Very Clean and secure building. A private pool just outside your door that you can take a swim in day or night. Everything is within walking distance..The flagler pier, several cafes & shops, the beach and Ice Cream. The room had a nice master bedroom, A living room with a sleeper sofa. We put an additional mattress on the floor for our youngest. Worked out great! The kitchen had everything we needed for our week of vacation. This room for the price is an absolute bargain. You will not be disappointed.
