"I'm going to write a long review with lots of information about the area for anyone who wants to read it and some of these specifics may apply to. However, if you just want info on the house and the gist of the review, it's already above - a really nice place to stay!
The House: The house is a fairly modern house with modern, stainless steel appliances. It is very well kept, much better than most houses we've seen close to the salt air and spray and being rented out most of the time. It was roomy, clean, and very well stocked with toys, kitchen ware, towels, linens, etc.. We've been renting beach houses for over 30 years (mostly through agents at one particular beach) and have NEVER seen such a well stocked house. We've rarely seen one that was as well maintained either. Also the view - This house isn't on the beach (across the road), but Flagler does not have any buildings on the beach side of A1A except at the pier. You don't actually see the beach from the house (high dunes), but, you have a spectacular, panoramic, unobstructed view of the Atlantic from inside (double sets of glass doors) and the deck (didn't see many, but saw dolphins and boats every day). We did have some VERY minor issues, so minor that the first I just e-mailed the owner. But, Randy, the owner, was very responsive, nice to talk to, and took care of things quickly. My only dislike of the house is that the lot is small, very close to neighbors. But, no problem with the neighbors and it's much better than condos!
The Beach: A very pretty, but different "cinnamon color" on a wide, gentle sloping beach. The color is from finely broken shells, so fine that it's not uncomfortable to walk on, much like walking on sand. I'm sure this varies tremendously, but most of the time the waves and undertow were not very rough. The beach was basically "isolated" at the house, generally less than a dozen people on it in a two block stretch.
Restaurants: There are several restaurants at Flagler, most rated well and most stayed rather busy. The "Turtle Shack" is in walking distance and seems popular. We only ate at one Flagler restaurant, but that was part of the appeal of Flagler to us - close to other areas (St. Augustine and Daytona) to do other things.
Biking: The area is bike friendly - we saw bikes on roads, sidewalks, and the beach. There is also "The Lehigh Trail" nearby. It is hot in the summer, so we didn't bike much.
Out of room -ENJOY"
