About the property

Beachfront Home, 3 Bed, 3 Bath, Expansive Wrap-around Balconies, Big Kitchen

Our ocean front private beach front home is as good as it gets. The 3 story open floor plan with huge balconies offers a wonderful setting for gatherings and entertaining.

The third floor has an open floor plan with a large kitchen and dining area; and a comfortable living room with a 60 inch smart TV. The large wrap around balcony is a great setting to watch the waves, dolphins, and more.

Take the elevator or stairs to the second floor where the 3 large bedrooms are. The master suite has a private bath with shower and Jacuzzi tub. The balcony on this level leads directly to the beach via your private dune walkover. It's like your own private beach - this is a quiet area without the condos and crowds.

On the first floor we have 2 garages with remote openers, as well as a washer and dryer.

Outside is a nice lawn and privacy afforded by the high dune and vegetation.

About Gary

Nena and I live in the area - we plan to retire to this home one day. We enjoy this beach so much for walking, shelling, biking, kayaking, etc. We have this home furnished nicely as we also use the home when it's not rented. We are nearby to help if needed and we want your stay to be wonderful. We think everyone should be able to feel what it's like to be on the ocean in paradise.

We love this house so much, we got married here in October! :)

Gary purchased this house in 2015

Why Gary chose Florida

We love Flagler Beach and this home is on a large lot on a high dune overlooking a beautiful beach and ocean. The elevator and balconies are the icing on the cake. We also love to cook and enjoy entertaining and this house is perfect for that!

What makes this house unique

The private dune walkover leading from the second floor balcony makes the beach feel like an extension of the home. This is as close as you can get to the ocean.

We have the amenities to fully enjoy your stay - including bikes, a gas grill, an elevator, and a well stocked home.

Great beach property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We always enjoy our stay here. The beach house is fully supplied with all the conveniences of home. We especially appreciate that the property is pet friendly with a fenced in area. Our dog loves to hunt sand crabs on the beach morning, noon and night!

We enjoy the house so much that we will be returning again in August for another week.

Thanks for allowing us to rent your home!

You won't be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home in February 2017 for two weeks. It is a beautiful home and situated right on the beach with a nice walkway outside the second floor. The home was very clean and well cared for. It was so nice having the elevator for carrying luggage, groceries, etc. between the floors. We brought two dogs with us....our golden retriever and an Australian shepherd mix. They loved walking on the beach and the fenced in yard was perfect for letting them safely outside. This area is very dog friendly so when you're on the beach make sure to remember to carry some type of bag with you to clean up after your dogs.....we want to keep the area "dog friendly." Even some of the restaurants in town allowed us to bring our dogs along so long as we sat outside and the dogs were well behaved. The home itself has beautiful views of the Atlantic, plenty of room for visitors, tables and chairs on the second and third level verandas making it really nice for sitting outdoors to eat or just relax, and a fully equipped kitchen. You will love this home.

Great house, great location, great weather and great time.

  • 5 of 5

We rented Gary's house from January 1, 2017 to January 27, 2017. My wife and I and our dog had a great time and no complaints whatsoever. The house sleeps 10 so we had no trouble accommodating visiting family members. The house was well provisioned with bikes, fishing gear, a computer and other useful items. The ocean views from the second and third floor decks were spectacular. My wife has COPD so the elevator was a godsend. The local restaurants were guite good but we found our favorite restaurant in St. Augustine which is only 30 miles away (the Columbia). The ocean waves at night made for good sleeping. We liked the overall experience so much that we have already booked the place for January and February 2018.

Amazing Beachfront Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Once again our 2 week stay was perfect! Gary and Nena's home is beautiful and well stocked with everything you may need. Of course what is outside the house is unmatched! The expansive porches on two levels made it easy to take in the views and sounds of the rolling waves. The weather was wonderful so opening doors brought this peaceful feeling inside.

We intended to do more grilling and eating in, but spent most of our nights at the Flagler Fish Company and Snack Jacks. Long drives and walks on the beach topped off another spectacular vacation at this special home. Gary and Nena are the absolute best hosts! My husband and I really appreciate their hospitality and we look forward to our next visit!

Fabulous property. Perfect trip.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last week of September at this fantastic home. The weather was super. Sorry bout your luck, Mathew.

The boys were overly excited about the elevator, so I made them use the stairs. It was reserved for Mom and Duke, the smartest dog in the world. We shuttled the luggage and groceries from the garage to the elevator, which punctuated the idea of vacation.

The views from the upper deck are not justified by the pictures. The roar of the surf and the warm sea breezes lull you into a ' take a minute' frame of mind, while you dissolve into a deeper consciousness of relaxation. The event continued daily.

The steps from the upper and lower decks continued toward the beach and passed an outdoor shower which was well placed and used often by the boys. It was also used by Duke, the smartest dog in the world. Those steps also continued to the yard, passing the gas grill and all the things in the world a dog might want to sniff.

The boys slept well and with all the space they needed and then some. My wife and I truly enjoyed the master suite with the sound of the surf crashing in our dreams. The shower was perfect and the ceiling fan running just outside it was a stroke of genius.

The wifi was great and I know the tv worked, because we watched about ten minutes of a fishing show. There were things to do outside and the tv was probably the least used appliance. The cooling systems worked flawlessly, as we were very comfortable the entire time we spent there.

The open floor plan was really nice, not bunched or crowded. The high ceilings and wide stairwells gave us sense of space we are accustomed for to. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook, in fact, my wife baked a ham with red beans and rice our first night there if I recall. Just like home in so many ways, just a much, much better location.

Finally ,the hospitality. Gary and Nena were so very helpful in allowing us an opportunity to stay an extra day, as my schedule permitted us. We just loved it that much. They were available to us anytime and we did not feel hovered over. When we had questions they had answers, and folks, you can't do better than that. I will take this opportunity to thank you both so sincerely for allowing us to share special moments with my family in your home. We look forward to next year.

The Stuart family

The property was exactly how it was described and absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better vacation. The area is perfect for people of all ages. Restaurants and shopping are just a short drive away from this quiet family oriented paradise.

From the planning of this vacation to the last day the owners answered several questions for us and we're great to deal with. We are looking forward to renting this one vacation home again!

We are on the north end of Flagler Beach.

Flagler Beach is a wonderful old Florida style beach town. Many restaurants, bars, and nightclubs are available for night time fun.

Daytime there is the beach and ocean, a museum, great walking and biking, fishing, boating, and much more.

This is a nice sized town without the crowds. We have bikes at the house and it's a nice bike ride to town on the sidewalk.
