About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Vacation right on beautiful Flagler Beach at Cozy Cottage, our delightful bungalow with wraparound deck, HDTV, and all the comforts of home! Discover the joy of oceanfront living in this charming family house.

Nothing stands between you and the Atlantic except clean coquina-shell sands at Cozy Cottage! Our big wooden porch includes seating for the sunrise on this deck, and if you follow it around to the west side of the house at cocktail hour, the sunset will be waiting for its close-up. Perfect!

Step inside Cozy Cottage from the oceanfront deck and you find yourself in a long, light-filled room with a soaring ceiling, bright white walls, and a cool tiled floor. This is the combination living and dining area. At one end sits a huge HDTV with cable and DVD player, surrounded by a horseshoe of ultra-comfy, plush couches and chairs resting on a soft area rug just right for the kids to play on.

Just beyond this are the dining table and hutch (help yourself to our collection of games and other fun toys!), and then the galley-style kitchen in a sunny corner. You may not be excited about cooking on vacation, but just in case you do get the urge (or better yet, can persuade someone else in your group to play chef!), you'll find the kitchen very well stocked. You bring only the food; we've already provided the dishes, glasses, utensils, and a wide range of cookware and gadgets. If nothing else, you'll love the convenience of the microwave, coffeemaker, blender, and dishwasher.

If the dining table looks more like a card-playing area, we confess that very few meals get taken indoors. The outdoor table on the covered portion of the deck, overlooking the beach, is just too tempting! You may find yourself carrying plates out there even for breakfast, with the waves murmuring, the breeze blowing, and the pelicans soaring past overhead. The free WiFi works out on the deck too, so it's a great place to set up the laptop or check your smartphone. It's just too beautiful to miss a moment . . . and that way you won't have to put away the marathon Risk tournament or finish the 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle just yet!

You'll fall in love with the big living/dining area at Cozy Cottage. The ocean views are magnificent, the togetherness is so much fun, and space is comfortable for everyone.

When it's time to retire for the night, however, you want privacy and quiet, and that's just what you'll find in the 3 bedrooms at Cozy Cottage. The master suite is especially blissful, with a king-sized bed, an HDTV, and plenty of natural light. It is next door to a bathroom with a shower, and we provide all the towels for every bath, as well as linens, pillows, and blankets for every bed (plus spares -- how are the kids going to build a blanket tunnel without spares?!). We've also got a washer and dryer to keep everything fresh, so pack light and save room in your suitcase for all those shells and sharks' teeth you're going to find on the beach!

The second bedroom at Cozy Cottage is a cheerful, sunlight-soaked space with a comfy queen-sized bed and great views in 2 directions. It shares a bathroom with the third bedroom, a child's delight containing 2 twin beds beneath a sloping ceiling. You'll find books and toys aplenty here, but there's also room for you to spread out what you bring. It's a family house -- there's always room!

Cozy Cottage could not have a better location, and enjoying a true beach vacation -- no traffic, no streets to cross, no traveling unless you want -- has never been easier. If you have children, this is a stress-free location, with bathroom, kitchen, and bed (for afternoon naps!) just seconds away from the sand. If you're traveling with other adults, you'll love the privacy of the house, bordered by lush greenery.

Beach Access 1 mile north of home on A1A at Varn Park.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed @ the Ocean Ridge home, which was absolutely beautiful. It had everything you could want. There were 14 of us-we had plenty of room, where we could all be together, yet if you wanted some privacy, you had that too. Just a short walk over the berm to the beach, which was amazing. If we had any questions, we called Ramona, who is absolutely wonderful. She answered any questions that we had (places to eat, etc.)We celebrated our dad's 83rd birthday, which was on Father's day & the next day deep sea fishing was on the agenda-with much success!!Everyone is still talking about this trip! We all loved the location & home. Plus we had massages @ Cinnamon Beach. Thank you Steve for such an amazingly wonderful time. You gave so much more than promised. And the grown grand kids took 80 yr old grandma shopping @ the outlet stores that you recommended. She loved it. My sister & I enjoyed walking along the beach with our parents. Can't thank you enough. We will recommend you to our friends and next time will plan another vacation with VRP---Thanks again--Martha

Not as advertised - so dissapointed

  • 1 of 5

I booked this property in mid February as a vacation for us, our daughter & husband and grandchildren. I saw a concerning review just prior to our check-in and emailed Vacation Rental Pro's of my concerns and was assured property was in good shape. Arrived late on check-in night and was SO very disappointed with interior of home. Very outdated and furniture in very poor condition. Arose the next day to discover that the entire back stairs shown in photograph are totally gone, only theirs remnants on the beach below along with broken down sea wall and trash. Area where steps were is very uneven and old latter literally tied to the edge. Yard totally overgrown. Poison ivy everywhere, old pots, beer cans, siding from abandoned home next door etc. strewn underneath and within the brush. Couldn't see any access to beach that was safe. Called VRP's right away and asked for another property that would be safe for grandchildren to get to beach and they would not offer anything else. Said we could use public access up the road. That was NOT what I paid for. Found a very narrow path beside house down to beach but we had to walk over debris and bend under part of the old steps to get to the beach. Kids had to wear sneakers to traverse down each day due to fear of nails or sharp objects hidden under sand. Seen a snake on pathway 3 times while there. Huge spiders in the dimly lit basement where washer/dryer is that we had to kill. No garbage was picked up the entire week we were there even though we left the garage unlocked and cars far enough apart to get the trash out as indicated on the basement door. If you expect something cute, cozy and a beautiful view from deck to ocean below (and easy access to beach) this not the home.

Do Not Rent

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the "cottage" on Thursday evening to find the staircase to the beach completely gone and a folded up beach chair blocking the stair access. None of the stairs had been cleaned up from the hurricane back in October!!!! It was a disaster area and very unsafe. It needed to be blocked off from the beach area as well. I can't imagine a child getting into the debris or being on the deck area! It was very unlevel and needed to be replaced completely. We go inside to check out the home and it's filthy, very outdated, no washer and dryer as stated. The couches that use to be possibly white or tan are now a dingy brown/black to the point I didn't even want to set down. The house is in need of serious repairs all the way around. Closet doors barely hanging on, bathrooms that are stained and dirty, the kitchen is just as bad. The pictures are VERY misleading. We had to leave the property and get a refund from the rental company. The company is a nightmare and zero customer service! I would never rent from them again and this home needs to be removed until repairs are made. It is truly unsafe! Just thankful we didn't have to stay and just renturned home. Our Easter weekend was ruined!

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately the property was not available due to Hurricane Matthew. We are going to stay at another property next week and appreciate all the efforts of Vacation Rental Pros in getting us switched timely. My heart goes out to all who experienced this terrible storm and we greatly appreciate the clean up and repairs being done.Looking forward to helping keep our beach clean and will bring plenty of garbage bags! We pray Cozy Cottage will be available next year as we adore this house. Stay Strong St. Augustine and our home away from home.

A Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely cottage and would highly recommend it. Having said that, I realize it would not be for everyone. It has a motley collection of furniture and cups etc. and is better described as relaxed or informal rather than immaculate. However, for us it provided for a very authentic beach-side cottage experience and we wouldn't exchange it for a fancier place. The carpet was a little grubby but this is the only fault (and one we regarded as a very minor one). The location is perfect-close to amenities but in a quieter area and relatively secluded from neighboring homes. We fully expect we will stay there again.
