Sitting on the edge of Flagler Beach with a sweeping view of the cinnamon sand and sparkling surf is Sunshine House, our newly renovated vintage bungalow. Boasting brand-new furniture, a cool retro décor, and unbeatable ocean views, it's THE place to stay! ***Please Note: direct beach access will be temporarily inaccessible as the County is prepping the area for 2018 hurricane season. Public beach access will still be accessible and all construction is set to be completed by May 1st.*****
Like something straight off the set of Mad Men, Sunshine House is a mid-20th-century cube of a house, with a flat roof and pastel colors. It sits on a prime double lot, beachfront, with a huge backyard overlooking the sea. But though it may look modest from the outside, once you step into Sunshine House, you realize you've found a truly special home-away-from-home.
Completely remodeled with terrazzo floors and a designer's eye, Sunshine House can only be described as a " swinging' beach pad"! Turn on the radio in here and you expect to hear the latest hit from the Rat Pack or news from the Kennedy White House! It's sheer fun to look at, super comfortable to stay in, and a conversation piece you'll dine out on all year. Bring the good camera and get ready to fill your Facebook page with new photos!
The wide open living and dining area are awash in sunlight and pale tones, from the gleaming terrazzo floors to the huge powder-blue sectional that seats 8 comfortably and includes a lounger. Two ottomans in this room unfold into twin beds, accommodating any overflow of guests. (And you WILL have an overflow of guests once people find out about this place!) A giant 45" HDTV with DVD player stands ready to entertain -- after all, vintage is a great style, but there's nothing to beat modern appliances!
Sliding glass doors from the living room lead out to the back patio, where ultra-comfortable lounge and Adirondack chairs await you. The décor here is desert modern -- no prickly undergrowth to worry about, which is great for the kids.
The living area of Sunshine House also includes a "formal" dining table and a neat diner-style banquette with an ocean view. You'll love the square white table set about with lime-green molded chairs, and the diner-style banquette is equally appealing with its booth seating. (Kids' table, anyone?) And if you wind up eating outdoors to the murmur of the sea, repurpose these tables into the game or computer spaces (you have free wireless Internet here). They're just waiting for a heated Cranium match or an all-night poker game!
Beyond the dining area is our kitchen, thoroughly modern and spotlessly appointed. The wide, glossy tiles feel so good on your feet after a day at the beach! Our knobless blond cabinetry filled with cookware and utensils, the sleek breakfast bar, and the gleaming white appliances may just convince you to cook a homemade meal . . . or not. They work great for drinks and snacks too, and Palm Coast has fabulous restaurants!
After all the fun of a day at Flagler Beach, it's great to retire to the comfortable bedrooms at Sunshine House. The master bedroom is cool and breezy, with a king-sized bed, new HDTV with DVD player, and doors leading outside.
The 2nd bedroom offers a queen-sized bed and wall-mounted HDTV. Both it and the third bedroom are located on the mezzanine level. And the third bedroom is the perfect children's space, with a queen bed and a bunk with a twin on top, double on bottom. This room also has a wall-mounted HDTV, which is very handy when the pillows start flying!
Two full & 1 half bathrooms keep everyone happy at Sunshine House. The master bath is palatial, with a separate bathtub and shower, split-level design, and high window for natural light. (The washer & dryer is also stashed here.) The 2nd bathroom offers bold retro aqua & white tile plus a big shower. And the half-bath off the living room is convenient for all.
Sunshine House is a unique beach bungalow, the perfect blend of retro and modern, with the emphasis on comfort. The views are astonishing and the livin' is easy!
*Please note that the oceanfront gazebo was destroyed in Hurricane Mathew and is no longer on the property.

Disaster at the beach
House was okay. BUT no access to the beach from the house AND there was a huge crane parked between us and the ocean the whole time. Would like some sort of a refund! Won’t recommend to anyone!
We apologize for the inconvenience that you faced during your recent stay. We understand your frustrations and we are extremely regretful that you had to endure such an issue. We have been informed that the county has been preparing for the upcoming hurricane season by installing a seawall. Unfortunately, this is a 7 days a week project until everything can be completed. It has been projected that the time of completion for the project will be no later than May 1st. Although the private beach access is temporarily unavailable, there is still public beach access. Again, we are sorry for the disruption that this may have caused you during your vacation. Hopefully you still enjoyed your time under the circumstances given. For your time lost and disruptions, we were glad to hear that you were granted compensation for the hassle. Thank you again for your feedback and we truly hope that this rare instance does not deter you from staying with us again in the future.
House was very comfortable and cozy. Loved being able to just walk out the back door and being right on the beach.
The home is very unique and definitely has the view. Overall clean and comfortable. Shower heads are little low so can present a challenge other than that detail no complaints. Great location to restaurants and very pet friendly. Could use a new set of non stick pans and a coffee maker. Has a keruig but wanted to use coffee maker and it doesn't work. Would recommend it to friends.
Great family vacation house.
Well appointed and equipped house. Proximity to the ocean was superb. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Would most definitely stay here again.
Enjoyed our stay but a few details should be addressed.
Loved the location and most of the amenities were adequate. However here are some suggestions: the kitchen needs some additional equipment such as scissors, a griddle with no stick surface (couldn't make pancakes); consistent message on recycle day ( one list says Wednesday; another says Thursday); most importantly the living room furniture is not comfortable. I know we didn't come to sit inside but we couldn't spend 24 hours outside. A safety hazard is the steps going up from the parking area. There should be a handrail here. A light in this parking area would also be helpful. I don't think it would disturb the turtles.
The shelfguards for the refrig should be put back in so that all space is usable. One last thing--have the cleaning crew dust off the fan blades, especially the ones over the dining table--they are rather gross.
Even with all of this, we enjoyed our second stay at your 3123 OceanShore Sunshine House.
Good location, house was average.
Air conditioning doesn't reach the living room area, it was 85 degrees in the family room as a result. Location was good as it was close to the beach. Outside the house needs to be sprayed for ants.
