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!<br/><br/>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.<...br/><br/>Completely remodeled with terrazzo floors and a designer's eye, Sunshine House can only be described as a "swingin' 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!<br/><br/>The wide open living and dining area is a 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! <br/><br/>Sliding glass doors from the living room lead out to the back patio, where ultra-comfortable lounge and Adirondack chairs await you, and a funky little pavilion with a picnic table offers oceanside dining in the shade. (It has also been known to act as a pirate ship on rocky seas to imaginative children!) The décor here is desert modern -- no prickly undergrowth to worry about, which is great for the kids.<br/><br/>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 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!<br/><br/>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! <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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!<br/><br/>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 are 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.<br/><br/>Sunshine House is a unique beach bungalow, the perfect blend of retro and modern, with the emphasis on comfort. The views are astonishing & the livin' is easy!
Additional amenities include: biking, boating, beach, fishing, washer / dryer.Read more
Rental very nice. Found two maintenance issues, which needed attention. Trash company needs to be looked into and find out why trash(recycables weren't collected as required). Uncle Bill's renatl co a joke.We called to inquire about renting a two person boat for the remainder of our stay, they told us they had one. We gave our name went to the renatl agency only to find they said in person they didn't have any. Recommend finding a different rental agency for your clients (Bait and switch)game...

Right on the ocean, stairs to the beach in your yard. Grill in the garage. All the amenities of home on your vacation. Loved it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again in the future. There were 8 people in our party and plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed the view, location, and daily visits to the beach. The only complaint we really had was the decking under the picnic table is in poor condition and an accident waiting to happen. Outside of that we loved the property!
Awesome house and location.

We had a fantastic time. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. The beach is right in the back yard and the house is conveniently located to everything. It was large enough to comfortably accomodate my sister's family, my brother's family, and my family. Would highly recommend.

This was the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a quiet, secluded vacation. We stayed with 2 other couples, and 3 kids under 4, and the house was perfect for that. We had the beach pretty much to ourselves, which was unexpected but great. Overall, the only negative was that there were ants that appeared in the kitchen and the upstairs bedroom-- but the ants in the bedroom could be blamed on the kids tracking food into their beds... we had the downstairs bedroom next to the kitchen and had no problems. Overall, a great vacation and a great beach house!

We had a great time in the rental. Plenty of sleeping space. Clean, cute, and homey. About 4 minutes into town and close to Daytona and St. Augustine.

A beautiful, clean and well furnished property in an ideal location. Shops, bars and restaurants just a short drive away and the wonderful beach literally on the doorstep...what more could you possibly wish for?!
