Where you'll be
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 primary 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 primary 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.

Sunshine house is a perfect private location. The amenities does say it includes a fire pit, which it does not. There is also a lot of construction on the beach right now with dump trucks of sand driving back and forth. Because the beach was still accessible, i would not have canceled the location, but I would have liked to know about this as you have to climb huge hills from the dump truck tracks in the sand to get to the beach. I’m just coming off chemotherapy and it was very hard for me. Host was very responsive to AC issue and very proactive.

LOVED the house. Roomy, quiet and modern. If I had one thing to suggest, it is that there was not enough toilet paper for the week- we read this on a review so we brought our own, glad we did. The other thing which isn’t likely the owners fault but previous renters; the pans were so dirty that we couldn’t use them, we stopped at Walmart and bought some.

Property was just as described! Clean, comfortable and great location! A few of us enjoyed bike week festivities. But I never left the patio! Even the dogs didn’t want to leave. Beautiful spot! Can’t wait to go back!
