You have found it -- your new springboard to adventure in Palm Coast, a big, elegantly appointed family house with all the extras you could wish, from a huge lanai with swimming pool to a boat launch!
From the street, Sandy Shores is a lovely single-storey home in the Florida style, set behind a big grassy lawn with a generous driveway for several vehicles or a boat tow. It sits beside a saltwater canal that connects into the Intracoastal Waterway, great for fishing, birdwatching, and nature viewing. And the Atlantic is just a short drive away! Water, water everywhere -- even right in your own backyard!
Enter this house and you realize how misleading that street view really is. The interior of Sandy Shores is spacious, luxurious, and immaculate, with plenty of room for your big group. The living room is vast, with a wall-mounted TV facing a huge sectional sofa, easy chairs, and ottoman. Best of all, there is lots of floor space here for the kids to spread out their toys and projects as the grown-ups relax with a frosty drink or two, enjoying garden views in two directions. Beneath the silently spinning ceiling fans, all is cool comfort after a busy day in sunny Palm Coast!
The dining area and kitchen are just adjacent to the living room, so the cook never has to leave the fun when it's time to get dinner ready. A table for 8 awaits you here, so the whole group can gather to eat, set up laptops and tablets (you have free WiFi at Sandy Shores), or play a heated battle of Uno. And if you like buffet-style dining, a handsome sideboard stands ready to hold a feast!
If there are any chefs in the group, they will be delighted by the kitchen at Sandy Shores. Not only are the cabinets packed with cookware and serving pieces, but the drawers contain all the cook's tools and gadgets that make food preparation easier and more fun. And if take-out and restaurant dining are on the menu for this vacation, use the convenient countertop appliances -- coffeemaker, toaster, blender, microwave -- to fill the house with pleasant aromas and quick food and drink. Either way, you will love the top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances, including a double-door fridge with ice and water in the door. Make a grocery run when you arrive and you're all set to keep the gang fed and watered!
A long breakfast bar with seating for 4 occupies one end of the kitchen. Kids are drawn to this spot, so bring along some crayons and paper and let them create homemade placemats or draw pictures of their Palm Coast vacation as you work in the kitchen. Sometimes it's the quiet down-time moments that wind up being the most memorable of all!
In addition to all this space, there is a large rec room that can serve as a grown-up dining area (with a table for 4), a kids' arts and crafts or game station, or even a work area if someone in the group has to check in with the office every so often. You will find this private space invaluable when you just want to leave the happy chaos of the big group for a few minutes and unwind with a book or journal. So nice to have options at Sandy Shores!
Of course, there is plenty of quiet and privacy in the bedrooms here. Sandy Shores has 3 bedrooms, a queen sleeper sofa, plus two rollaway beds that can easily be set up wherever they are needed. Everyone is guaranteed a great night's sleep, beginning with the lucky folks in the master suite. This is really the jewel in Sandy Shores's crown: a large bedroom with a king-sized bed, sliding-glass-door access to the lanai, a wall-mounted flat-screen, a cozy reading chair with good strong light, and all the storage space you could wish. The bathroom is en-suite, and features a sleek new walk-in shower, dual vanities, and a separate nook for the commode. As much fun as you will have in Palm Coast, coming home to Sandy Shores for the night will always be a delight when you have this suite to look forward to!
The second bedroom isn't really second best, because it too has a king-sized bed, reading lamps, and plenty of closet space. Sliders lead to the rec room, so one of you can stay up late without disturbing the other, and early risers can slip through the rec room to hop into the pool for a few refreshing laps!
The third bedroom is bright and cheery, with a queen-sized bed, garden views, and easy access to the second bathroom. This bath, shared by the common areas, features both a shower and tub option, dual vanities, and a door to the pool area for convenient after-swim showering!
The beautiful high-ceiling lanai spans the entire length of the back of the house, regaling you with a kidney-shaped pool, a wide sun shelf for lounging and playing, and a state-of-the-art gas grill. The kids will never tire of splashing around under the sunny skies, and you don't have to worry about all those wet swimsuits and beach towels, because Sandy Shores has a big laundry room with washer and dryer to keep everything clean and dry.
Just steps from the house is a pathway down to the canal, with a dock for your boat. So when you can pry your group away from the pool, take to the gentle current of this canal, and explore the gorgeous Intracoastal Waterway!
