Overview

About the property

Duplex two separate units, 1Bedroom, 1 Bath, each unit. Sleeps 4 Ups. 3 downs

Altos:

Nothing beats waking up and seeing the sun rising above the ocean outside your window. This experience can be yours at Altos Apartment. This unit has one bedroom (queen sized bed), living room, bath and an open kitchen. Both the living room and the bedroom look out to the ocean over a deck that invites you to linger. Enjoy the ocean breeze throughout the apartment. Watch for dolphins from the kitchen while preparing meals or making your favorite drink. As with all Casas de la Playa properties, the unit is fully equipped from pots and pans to linens and towels. In winter, Right whales have been spotted from this location. Year round the birds and vegetation are wonderful to watch. This is an idyllic place for a weekend, a week, or a longer stay. Also, no need to trip over your belongings – there is ample storage in the large closet as well as a utility closet. Make Altos your private perch for contemplating the sea at Flagler Beach.

As a part of Casas de la Playa Beachside, Altos is hidden away in a sleepy residential neighborhood by the ocean. Located several blocks south of the Flagler Beach Pier, you are still close to large variety of shops and restaurants, but out of the direct push of tourist traffic. Stay at Altos, and live like a native.

About Andres Nazario

My partner and I fell in love with this property over 20 years ago while we were both teaching in Gainesville, FL. We remodeled it for our weekend use since we lived only less than two hours away. We have been offering it as vacation rental since 2001. We now live in Miami Springs, and plan to retire in Flagler Beach in the future. I welcome your inquiries through this website, or by phone, or e-mail. I will respond quickly. Although we no longer live close to Flagler Beach, we visit often, and we have a local caretaker who attends to maintenance of the property and to the needs of our guests.

Andres Nazario purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Andres Nazario chose Flagler Beach

We have come to Flagler Beach since the early eighties. We love the quaint and tranquil environment, without franchises, or high-rise buildings. This is a wonderful beach community with the flavor of old Florida beaches, unrushed, friendly, and the beach is never crowded. Often you can look in both directions while sitting on the sand, and see no one, or one or two people in the distance. On weekend, a few more people show up. Almost everything is walking distance, if you like to walk, or a very short driving distance with ample parking everywhere. This cozy duplex across the beach on A1A has full view of the ocean.

Each apartment (Casa Altos or Casa Bajos) is fully furnished and has one bedroom, bathroom, living area, full kitchen, microwave, cable TV, and central heating

and air. Each unit is simply but tastefully decorated to accommodate Florida vacationing at its best. Enjoy the ocean breeze from the living room or bedroom. Watch for dolphins while preparing meals or your favorite drink. In winter, Right whales have been spotted from

this location. During Spring and Summer the birds and vegetation are wonderful. This is an idyllic place for a weekend, a week, or a longer stay. We are located only a few blocks south of the Flagler Beach Pier and close to shops and restaurants. This is a non-smoking unit.

What makes this apartment unique

The most attractive aspect of Flagler Beach is its peacefulness and small beach community charm. There are no franchises on the beach, nor high rises. There are several small local restaurants and cafes with excellent food, a couple of galleries, some nice bars, and a friendly neighborhood.

Marineland is 10 minutes north, and Daytona Beach is 20 minutes south. Historic St. Augustine is a half-hour drive away, and Orlando and Disney are within an hour's drive. Major airports are within an hour and a half drive.

The sunrises are fabulous at this time of the year. Sit and relax on the porch, or take a chair to the beach. The beach walkover is one and a half block north. The ocean water temperature is cool this time of the year, and the sun is bright and warm. At night sit and contemplate the constellations and the planets from anywhere, the balcony, the beach, or walking around the neighborhood! This is an ideal place for moon lovers, and star gazers. Fish from the beach, or from the nearby pier. Bring your own bicycle and enjoy riding around this small community! From this property you can watch the ocean all the time. During the winter months Right Whales may show up, and dolphins are visible year round. There are also at least two gopher tortoises calling our front yard their home. These are protected species and if you don't get too close they will move around while feeding on the vegetation without much concern.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an awesome time, thanks Andres. New windows and sliding door were great; and we used the sun loungers and table/umbrella every day. The sun loungers were a huge plus. Hopefully we'll see you again next summer. Back to the grind at work now.

Best,

We LOVED our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Casas De La Playa. Our first time we stayed in the lower unit and we enjoyed our experience very much, especially our son who loved looking for the resident turtles. Last week, we stayed in the upstairs unit and words cannot describe the serenity we felt with our view of the beach! Our son found the turtles again and this time, they were babies! We also enjoyed our visit from a Great Egret, dragonflies, butterflies and the beauty of seeing dolphins from the terrace facing the ocean. The neighborhood is very quiet, close to everything you might need and the community is so welcoming and pleasant. The unit itself lacked nothing! All you need for a most comfortable stay was provided. We had family visit us and enjoyed a nice BBQ on the terrace with the beautiful ocean front right there!! The kids all went to the beach which is directly across the street, with a newly constructed walkway for easy access to the beach full of seashells and beautiful sand. Waking up to the sunrise and ocean view from both the bedroom, the living room/kitchen and the serenity we felt was just priceless! Communication with Andres is effortless and we appreciate that his team made every effort to ensure our stay was stress free. With all the comforts of home, an environment that allows you to fully immerse yourself into a beach life is all here...don't seek another property...THIS IS the property to stay in when you visit Flagler Beach! Thank you again Andres for your hospitality and we look forward to visiting again soon! With appreciation, Maria, Peter, and Peter Anthony NYC :) **Honestly, we didn't want to leave**
