About the property

Relaxing and Well Equipped Beautiful and Private Beachfront Cottage Getaway!

This beachfront cottage has lots of room for everyone and can accommodate many options for families and guests. Located on the prettiest stretch of Flagler Beach, the large open back porch practically sits on the sand and allows for the illusion of being on the water itself or on a boat. The waves gently caress the shore while providing some of the most relaxing and soothing sights and sounds imaginable. The sand is to die for and is so good for restoring health and wellness to tired feet. Whether you are walking or running on the beach, you will find miles of available beach before you besides the private section behind this awesome cottage. The back porch offers incredible views of the ocean including frequent sightings of dolphins, whales and other beautiful sea birds and similar seaside life. The relaxing rattan couch and loveseat on the porch provide endless comfort while enjoying all the views and activity. There is nothing quite like the feeling of being on this porch at anytime of the day but especially with a fresh cup of morning coffee freshly brewed in your ocean view kitchen. If you prefer to remain in air conditioned space, but still want the ocean view, no problem as the cottage has two dining tables with great views of the ocean and the beach!!! Or...if you really want to test the limits of relaxing enjoyment without the elements...you can huddle down into one of five lazy boy recliners positioned nearby with ocean views as well. The cottage has all the normal modern appliances.

Disney is only a hop, skip and a jump away. Plus of course, the entire Orlando theme park and family vacation center is available nearby. You can literally avoid traffic in Orlando by sleeping in and than casually load your car by 9:00 am to drive to Disney for their opening time of 10:00 am.

If you love fishing, why not bring your pole and cast away right here on your own private beach. There is plenty of fish to be had while relaxing in a beach chair.

If you like jogging, you can't find a better beach anywhere for that lifestyle. The sand is perfect for running. The sound of the ocean and the awesome breezes make this sport even more fun than ever for those of us who love to run. And...the views are spectacular no matter which direction you choose on the beach.

For the swimming enthusiast, bring plenty of swim suits and suntan lotion as the water is so fun here on this beach.

As for sun tanning...they say the sun is always shining on Flagler Beach!! Grap one of our many towels and sun away your problems and worries.

Wow! Shocked at speed limit review

  • 5 of 5

As the Mom/and grandmother guest of previous tenants, I must say that review was a shock. Obviously the salty beach weather is not for everyone. I have never enjoyed being on the beach as much as I did with "SheShe" & the family. If I wanted a perfectly shining room I would have stayed in the city. Everything my daughter said about this place is correct. Relaxing...like no other place. My stress of the city was gone when I walked through the front door. I was amazed at how big it was and how clean it was for a beach house. As soon as life allows me, I plan to take a full vacation back at this place. Perfect for the 55+/young at heart or a ton of fun for young minds still discovering life.

Charming, bright, surprisingly roomy cottage! The ocean is your backyard!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights here relaxing with our dear friends. Wonderful place, very comfortable, we felt right at home! Plenty of room and privacy for all, and we had 8 adults staying! We all love the beach, so what a treat to awaken each day to the sound of the waves crashing to the shore, watch sunrises and moonrises over the sea, beachcomb and just relax and be together! Cooked many lovely meals together, and plenty of seating both indoors and on the porch...we spent a lot of time out on porch!

A highlight was painting seascapes looking out over the ocean, we have some lovely souvenirs of Painters Hill!

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy this wonderful gem! We might make it our new tradition!

We stayed a weekend in November to celebrate our daughter's 16th birthday. We loved the location. We are considering renting the house again this summer. Everything was wonderful.

Perfect Place for a great get away

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed this cottage any more. The pictures and description of the cottage were perfect. We had four adults (2 from FL and 2 from MO) staying and had 2 more adults (FL) came by for a cook-out. There is plenty of room inside and out. Bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and living areas were very clean and spacious. We spent most time on the back porch enjoying the ocean views, fishing and walking the beach. The Missourians wanted to spend as much time on the beach and it is just a short step down to the beach which was perfect! Thank you so much! We all agreed that we will rent this cottage again!

Maintenance needed ASAP.

  • 2 of 5

The property from the outside looks like a 3rd world property, as soon as you open the door you find yourself in the first bedroom where the living room should be, the door that goes to the florida room do not close due to damage from saltwater, in one of the bedrooms there is in microwave instead of a TV and in the other one a TV without a cable, by the way a TV from the 1960's not even sure if works. It's time to change all the blankets and linens not to mention that some of those where dirty and smell really bad, I have to do laundry myself to sleep on it the first day. Not toddlers proof, the fl room doesn't have any glass, screen or door. Overall the house needs a lot of work it seems like the owner itself try to repair everything which is not bad if you know what you're doing. I'm giving it two stars only because the view is excellent and the location is pretty convenient.

great location but lacking basic supplies

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Location, location location! The home is right on the beach and has a great covered patio with amazing views. We spent most of our time on the patio or beach. The home is pretty close to the cute little town of Flagler Beach with plenty of great restaurants and things to do. Also, it was very clean when we arrived which we appreciated. The king bed in the master is super comfortable, we all slept great! There was plenty of room for our family of 4 to spread out but the kids chose to share the room with the bunk beds! We read prior reviews about a bug problem. There were no bugs our entire stay, so they must have fixed that issue.

Cons: The house is pretty run down and the furniture looks like a collection of several different garage sale finds. However, anyone can tell that from the photos and we really would not have cared except that it had a strong odor that made it uncomfortable to hang out at the house for long. It smelled old and musty. It was strong enough that we decided to eat out all week rather than cook in the home and stayed outside a lot. The #1 reason we did not give this place 4 stars is there was barely any basic supplies. They only left us the 2 rolls of toilet paper that were on the holders in each bathroom! Imagine how fun that was when we ran out and discovered there was not a single roll in the entire house! We searched everywhere while our small child waited. We had to go to the store several times to get other basic supplies too like soap! We were a little shocked that they did not even have basics. Also there are no beach towels, which meant we had to buy our own and then pack back on the airplane. Finally, we were disappointed to discover the cute comfy-looking patio furniture in the photo is not there anymore. It has been replaced with old, dirty & uncomfortable cheap chairs and plastic tables.

For the amazing location & less-than-amazing interior, it is fairly priced. So if you don't mind roughing it and can bring your own soap & TP, then this is for you! You cannot beat the views & location for a reasonable price! Next time we will probably pay a little more to get a nicer place where we can cook, hangout and have basic supplies provided.

About Audie Lewis

This picture has a special story to tell. When I first went to look at this house, I had called the original owner and told them of my interest and they invited me to come look at the property. As it turned out, I arrived at the house only to find that the owner was not home yet. I went around the back of the house to the porch and discovered the swing and decided to sit there while waiting for the owners to return. The place was so scenic and relaxing that I soon fell asleep on the porch swing. When the owner returned, he woke me wanting to know who I was and what I was doing 'trespassing'and sleeping on their porch.

Imagine his surprise when he discovered I was the potential new buyer!!! I fell in love with this beachfront cottage and know you will too. I trust your family will find it just as beautiful and relaxing as ours did way back then!!!

Why Audie Lewis chose Painters Hill

Most of the properties you will find on Flagler Beach are actually across the street from the beach. This is one of the few homes that literally sits on the beach. And even with the few that do sit on the beach, most of them are positioned way back from the actual sand and shoreline. This cottage (and especially the back porch) rests only a few short feet away from the sandy shores! It is also one of the most beautiful cottages on the beach. With its bright and beautiful sunshine color and white trim, it is easy to find and adorable to see. You won't have any problem finding your home again when you take that long walk or run on the beach. The bright and beautiful colors and the close proximity to the sand will keep you from getting lost when you return home to this beachfront cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Make yourself at home. Don't worry about a thing. Let the atmosphere and lifestyle help you to wash away your cares and enjoy life as it is meant to be enjoyed in your beach side getaway. We trust you will love it as much as we do. It truly is a remarkable and inspiring home away from home.

Very near old historical sites including the oldest fort and city in America. Daytona Race Track is also nearby as well as world reknown beaches but none with the view and privacy available at this beach house. Schools of Dolphins can be seen from your back porch. Recent citing included more than 35 dolphins in one group just off the shore. Some rentals say they are on the beach but how many can boast of a back porch that literally is right on top of a seawall with a gorgeous sandy beach. And for kids and families, this private beach also has shallows that extend out for hundreds of feet into the water. Beautiful relaxing waves and plenty of wading waters and shell collecting areas for your enjoyment. The oversized covered porch has virtuall unobstructed views throughout. There is also a very nice porch swing for couples or kids to enjoy the peaceful and scenic landscape. The ocean wave sounds are awesome and so easy to hear from the privacy of the porch and courtyard. There are multiple eating locations available including most with ocean views while dining in the comfort of your beach side home. The living room of this house faces the beach as well and includes Lazy Boy Recliner couches, loveseats and chairs. The cozy sitting arrangement allows five people to kick back in their lazy boy recliners all at the same time. No fighting over comfortable beachside seating here. As for bedroom space, the house includes numerous bedroom options including a trundle bed which can either be a twin or a king size bed, a toddler's bed (so...so cute), another king bedroom set, two queen size beds plus a queen size sofa sleeper, and a portable crib for sleeping babies. Likewise, families will discover that the beach cottage has a changing table, a high chair and other similar items just for families. Flagler Beach is especially known for having fabulous beaches with a home time feel while being close to all the conveniences you need nearby. It is also only an hour away from Orlando and Jacksonville so that you can even have the big city events available if you choose. Flagler Beach is located just off Interstate 95 and only a few minutes from Interstate 4 and very close to Historic Saint Augustine.
