Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Painters Hill - Captivating Beachfront Cottage

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 including an ice-maker and water dispenser.

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.

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 Florida

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.

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.

This quaint little cottage is a wonderful place for a beach front getaway. The view from the back porch is absolutely breathtaking. The property was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We definitely plan to book another vacation here real soon! I highly recommend this property.

Horrible, horrible house and unsafe as well

  • 1 of 5

This cottage should not be rented to anyone...it was infested with pimento bugs and cock roaches..also is not safe, exterior light is broke and rusted and taped together..we contacted owner about the infestation and at first she said she didn't believe it, basically calling me a liar...then when we sent her pictures, she said there was nothing she could do (well being a florida resident I know better, as any company I have dealt with comes right back out free of charge if I see so much as one bug) she stated she had it sprayed, not true, because if she had we would not have been infested with pimento bugs at the very least, I get sprayed and the only pimento bugs I see are dead ones, also the cleaning lady didn't finish cleaning as she wanted to beat the hurricane, owner said I should understand, however I traveled from Ocala with no problems, my son from Ky fine, not that I'm insensitive to the cleaning lady, but I paid for a service that I did not get. I'm not sure she would understand if I didn't pay for staying there..I'd love to see her stay there for a week and chance that she will bring home the cock roaches, which is a very real fear for myself and family. I'm not a free loader, but I expect to get what you advertise...I have never been so disappointed since this was the very first vacation that all my family got together to enjoy. Although there is one good thing I can say, the beach is beautiful, too bad I didn't pay for just a beach and not a cottage on the beach..RETHINK YOUR CHOICE IF YOU WANT TO STAY HERE....WE SURE WISH WE DID...

Owner's Response: Untrue, untrue and extremely unwarranted as a low rating compared to so many other ratings of five star for the same house. Unfortunately, this tenant tried to get a free stay at our expense. They claimed that the house wasn't cleaned properly but didn't bother to make that claim until a day and a half into their stay. The housekeeper is an extremely picky cleaning professional who has never left our house lacking for proper cleaning. As for bugs, yes...you will see an occasional bug...but that would be true of every house that sits directly on the beach front in Florida. This house is no exception. We do have a pest control contract in place and we do get regular visits from the company while the housekeeper is present cleaning the house for the next visitor. This is a wonderful beach house sitting on one of the best beach locations to be found anywhere on this coast. We didn't give in to someone's request to have a free vacation at our expense. We are very responsive to actual real circumstances and try very hard to keep our guests happy as witnessed by our returning guests who keep coming back year-after-year. Many of our guests rebook next year's vacation immediately following their current one. I wish we had a better way of controlling frivolous and unjustified ratings but unfortunately you have to read thru the ones like this as well as all the five star ratings to get at the truth. Hope to see you in this beautiful cottage soon. We love having enthusiastic and appreciative guests in our wonderful Flagler Beach Home. Hope to see you here soon.

Fun at the beach! Needs provisions!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time! A reunion of old friends! We like funky , so the bright yellow house on the beach was perfect for us ! Quiet beach and great view. But if you want to avoid the bugs "just a couple" you should provide garbage bags and a big garbage can in the kitchen. Also provide laundry soap to wash the towels and hand soap for bathrooms and kitchen. Over all We loved it. But needs a few provisions.

Owner's Response: We do provide the basic starter packages for these items but not the refills...as you will find in most vacation rentals on the beach....So glad to hear that they loved the location and cottage though...we do love enthusiastic and caring guests that share our love for this Flagler Beach Cottage which sits practically ontop of the waves...hope to have many more excited guests discover this hidden gem...best wishes to all our current and future guests!!!

Had everything we needed, was nice on the inside, and had the perfect location to the water.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time the week we stayed. June 4-11th, 2016. Beautiful location..met a couple of the neighbors, everyone was very nice. Loved being right on the beach and watching the waves roll in. The beach was very private, not many folks around at all. Great location. We went to St. Augustine which is a beautiful town and visited the fort there. We went to Bulow Park - Plantation Ruins, beautiful area. We drove through Ormond Beach, and down to Daytona, and also went to New Symrna Beach. Went to see Daytona Speedway. The road the house is on, is a beautiful, scenic roadway that rides for miles along the ocean.

My family had a very nice time. Thanks to the owners for letting us share their nice beach house! :o)

We wholeheartedly agree and love to have other guests who appreciate this fabulous cottage as much as we do...I am sitting at the windowside table looking and listening to the waves as I type our our response to this perfect review...of course we think it is a five-star location...smile...but...perhaps we are a little biased in our love for this place!!!

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.
