Yes, everything is wonderful. Your condo is just what we needed!  We have enjoyed relaxing and reconnecting the last couple of days.

I loved walking in and seeing such a clean, updated home for the month and I have to tell you I am very pleasantly surprised at the quality of your kitchenware. I bought several of my own pans and utensils because I’ve learned from experience that owners don’t furnish functional pieces. That’s not so with your kitchen! I’m going to send mine home with our youngest daughter when she leaves later this week! lol!

Your attention to detail reminds me of myself. I also use a stainless steel cleaner on my pots and pans because I hate seeing that funky stuff on the bottom. You have Cameo brand but if you ever need to try another, we use Bar Keeper’s Friend and it works fabulous as well. I usually go out and buy a shaker of it before I will even use the pots in a place we rent but your pots and pans are sparkling and shiny!

Yesterday we took the kayaks over to Tomoka State Park and had the most amazing paddle ever! Saw around a dozen manatees total and even had one juvenile stick with us for over 10 minutes, poking his head up and rolling over on his back for us to rub him. Absolutely amazing – a day we’ll never forget.

Thanks,

Hi Virginia,
Thanks for the inquiry.  My response:   WOW!!  Superb condo… beautifully furnished…obviously
with a woman’s touch.  Great pool for my morning exercise.  And Flagler Beach is one of my
favorite places…really like it here. ..
Could stay here for (maybe ever).

Wonderful! Beautiful view of the intracoastal waterway and a short walk to the beach. Condo was absolutely perfect. It was tastefully furnished and clean. I personally loved the layout with the bedrooms on each side of the living room and lanai. The owner was extremely accommodating and attentive to any of our needs. Highly recommend! ~ Valorie, 4/21/16

 

The property is ideally situated along the Intracoastal waterway and with-in walking access to the ocean . The chance to see young dolphins at play, the entertaining diving pelicans and boating activity from the patio was worthwhile. The condo is very clean and well organized. This is a great bicycle riding location. Excellent owner who is helpful and readily available. ~ David S.

 

Thank you, thank you. Myself and my family had an awesome time in your great condo. The location is awesome and the views are the best around. We enjoyed the beach, intercostal, and the great restaurants at the beach. The condo is clean and well stocked with everything you need and we would definitely return! Thank you!! ~ Laura C.

 

This rental property is excellent, it truly has some great features to offer. Ground floor, intercoastal waterway steps from the patio and just A1A between you and the ocean. The condo is clean and well appointed. It is a pleasure to deal with the owner. The property is well kept and that gazebo is a great place to have a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset. Their is so much to see and do in the area.

~ Vic M.

 

There are many, many positives about staying in this condo: beautiful sunsets, a quiet and relaxing complex, very well equipped kitchen, cozy and comfortable, caring owners, lots of good restaurants, shopping and beach nearby to name a few. We enjoyed the Oceanside Bar and Grill for outside dining. My husband and I would love to return in the future. ~ Fran

 

After spending our fourth January and first February we feel as if we’re right at home in Marina Bay. It’s only a short walk to the ocean but right on Silver Lake and the inter coastal. Sunsets make you look forward to the evenings. It’s centrally located with numerous state parks close by that provide beautiful places to hike or fish. Flagler Beach to us is 1960’s Florida, no chain restaurants or stores but shopping is still close by as are great places to eat. Have already booked for 2016. ~ Hart

 

There was absolutely nothing you could complain about — the condo is very well appointed, it was super clean, the view is fabulous, and the beach is right there. It was light, bright, and everything was very comfortable. The price was very reasonable, and the owner treated me like a friend. Marina Bay (the condo complex) is well maintained, and felt homey and classy. Flagler Beach was also very enjoyable — we especially liked the Turtle Shack (a small, beachside, low key restaurant within easy walking distance). Try the Avocado egg rolls, they’re to die for! But all their food is good. Saw lots of dolphins both directly outside of the condo, and also in the ocean. Loved the condo, and miss the ocean already! ~ Louise

 

This is our second stay in this unit. We have been very satisfied. The unit is well stocked with all the essentials. If you enjoy cooking the kitchen is well equipped, with pots, pans and dishes, flatware, all types of glasses. There is everything to get started with, paper products, cleaning supplies, etc. The beds are very comfortable, there are plenty of towel and linens. The view of the intercostal waterway is wonderful and relaxing, the beach is also relaxing. In the garage there is everything you will need for the beach. We were here the first time in December 2013 and the second time in September 2014, both times were great. We hope to come back again.  ~ Leo & Barb

 

We’re staying the month of April, and we walked into a spotless, elegant vacation home. It’s roomy and so so comfortable. Everything is here that we need. It’s hard choosing which vacation rental you want to stay at, sometimes pictures can be deceiving, but not in your case! It’s certainly a WOW. Virginia you were so accommodating with all my questions and concerns that I knew I was choosing the right condo for us. The master bedroom is really big and has so many closets. We cook a lot, and the kitchen is perfect. You can even just be sitting in the living room, or working at the sink, and you look out onto the intercostal and see the dolphins each day playing! Lots of movies, books and games too. We love the heated pool, and it’s really warm if the day is a little bit chilly. The ocean is a beautiful blue here and very clean. Pelicans fly by constantly, a dozen at a time where you can catch their picture! We are just having a wonderful time. We’ve made friends at the pool and boardwalk off the screened porch. The sunsets are gorgeous and just steps from your door, how we’ll ever leave, I don’t know. There’s always next year i guess, if I haven’t given away all the inside information on your paradise! Love all the restaurants and farmers market too, which are minutes away. We’re going to go to Daytona and St. Augustine’s for day trips, cause they’re close by if we can pry ourselves away from here……. ~ Jo

 

I have stayed at this Marina Bay waterfront property many times and in many different seasons. It’s always great fun and a comfortable & convenient place to stay. I’m a beach-lover and it’s awesome to be able to walk to the beach so easily. But, it’s just as enjoyable to hang out at the condo and relax inside or on the screened porch or the outside porch and enjoy the most gorgeous Marina sunsets that I’ve ever seen! The choices for relaxing at the condo are wonderful: big comfortable inside furniture, outside fun patio furniture, and a garage full of choices for bike-riding, beach-going, or sightseeing. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay successful (and, if you think that they’ve missed something, they listen to you and add it before your next visit!) The condo is always sparkling clean and ready when I get there and it’s easy to unpack on the first floor, not to mention how easy it is to get groceries in as well. The laundry room is an added plus, especially in the summer when I come & go from the beach and/or pool daily. Close by are wonderful restaurants and parks and the adorable & friendly little town of Flager Beach. Always something to do and/or explore! You will also experience the joy of marine life, not just oceanfront, but also in the marina. The dolphins love to come in there to play and you will also be entertained, depending on the season by manatees, all kinds of pelicans and other sea fowl, raccoons, rabbits, exotic lizards, and more!! It’s an experience to visit there. I’ve NEVER had a bad visit and I’ve also been there for two hurricanes. Very safe and well-prepared for inside entertainment (movies, books, games, etc.) if necessary. Almost hate to share this review as it’s my favorite “home away from home” and I’d rather keep it to myself, but they deserve the good review. ~ L.M.

 

The condo is beautiful (both location and furnishings). Our family of four had plenty of room and really appreciated the efficient kitchen and large dining room for meals at home. The view from the lanai on to the Intra-Coastal Waterway is extra special, especially at sundown; and if you’re really lucky, the manatees will stop by. Just crossing the highway puts you on the beach, but if you prefer, you can do your swimming in the complex pool. Flagler Beach is a great place to relax and fall into the rhythm of a small Florida town. There’s lots of shopping opportunities within minutes of the condo and a terrific multi-screen theatre close by. With St. Augustine to the north and Daytona to the south, you can always get into the city for sightseeing if you wish. Dining in Flagler Beach offers something for everyone. Our family enjoyed fresh seafood, authentic Italian pizza and salads, delicious burgers and yummy bagels during our stay. It was fun to sit at a rooftop restaurant and watch the waves roll in. The condo is inviting and quiet. We found it clean and in excellent condition. We really liked that the unit was on the ground floor – convenient for settling in and unloading groceries, etc. The condo owners have provided a great library of DVD’s and books which are perfect if you encounter a rainy afternoon or have a quiet evening planned. You’ll find plenty of bedroom space and two full baths as well as a full-sized washer and dryer in the laundry area. The trip was our second to this Marina Bay condo, but I’m sure it won’t be our last! Great place to relax, enjoy the ocean and the sun, and forget your cares for awhile!! ~ Mary P.

 

Hi Virginia,

All is well in Flagler Beach. To try to tell you how wonderful this time has been for me is impossible. The location of your unit is perfect- so quiet, I felt like the only person in the world. And the view – boats on the intercoastal and blinding sunsets. You have provided a charming beach hideaway right down to your great artwork. It’s going to be difficult for me to leave.
Shirley

Well we did enjoy our Florida holiday.
We found your condo to be just as promised, and we tried to leave it in at least as good condition as we found it. Very nice.
We received the security deposit check yesterday, thank you.
If our plans include staying in that area again I hope your condo will be available. ~ Leo

 

We are so happy here, feel right at home!  We truly love it and it’s only our second day!  Love the master bedroom and bath, and the big closet came in handy for all the suit cases.  Sitting on the sun porch watching the lizards, and listening to the birds.  We went to Easter Mass yesterday and it was packed. The priest is one of the best I’ve ever listened to, very enthusiastic, loved him!  Listening to the intracostal lapping against the docks and boats is very soothing. The ocean color is as beautiful as the gulf side.  The pool is heated so you can just jump in!   People are very friendly, which makes it nice when you visit as just a couple.  The washer and dryer came in handy right away cause we’d already been gone a week by the time we made it here.  The kitchen has everything, I was able to make pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy,  just as I would have at home.   Furniture is comfortable and everything is spotless, as promised.   Love it…….Jo

Hi, all is well.  We are seeing dolphins sometimes 3 times a day, plus all the usual feathered friends.  Catching lots of sea trout and blue fish.  The weather is beautiful… thank you!

~ Frank & Cynthia

 

What a great place to spend the holidays!  Gorgeous views, spectacular sunsets, dolphins playing — WOW.  Condo is comfortable & user friendly.  Love the “honor system” — so nice after driving for 10 hours!  Didn’t have to shop until I rested.  Flagler Beach is friendly & fun — lots to see and plenty of great restaurants.  Hope to be back soon!  Thank you  so much!  ~ Lyn M.

 

The pictures on-line don’t do your place justice!  We were exhausted and arrived to a SPOTLESS condo, furnished very nicely.  In the morning we awoke to that awesome view. Your beach is so relaxing, and we often had it to ourselves.  We ate out some but also cooked — your kitchen is well equipped, and we especially enjoyed the fresh seafood from the Flagler Fish Company.  We were very impressed with Marina Bay as a whole, and with Flagler Beach.  Thanks for sharing your marvelous place ~ Lily

 

Have had a great holiday here in this lovely condo.  We have been to Flagler Beach, but have not had such a great time in such lovely surroundings!  Have been to Florida so many times and this area is one of the best!  Played golf many times during the month — and Riverbend remains our favorite.  We hope to return soon. ~ Regards, The Capes, Derbeyshire, UK

 

We have really enjoyed our stay here, this condo is so nice.  I love the beach and this is a great place and peaceful. ~ Juan and Nattie

 

All the things Narni said plus more.  We had 2 wonderful rounds of golf at Halifax Plantation and Grand Club Cypress Course.  Next time we’ll be playing at Palm Harbor in Palm Coast.  And then there was the beach!!  Your condo is so convenient and comfortable in an area with so much calm and peace.  Lastly we took a day to explore St. Augustine — there is so much to do, to see, and to eat.  Fabulous clam chowder at Meehans Irish Pub.  Too many things for one visit ~ Ann & Nels

 

Back again!  Visiting with friends.  Fireworks almost got rained out but we did get to see them.  Friends paddled around in a canoe for an hour (Cleopatra in her barge!).  Spent hours at the beach with gorgeous weather and a last dinner at Blue.  Great memories!  ~ Narni

 

We had a wonderful time — saw lizards, dolphins.. beautiful sunrise and a lovely place to call home.  Martin’s Restaurant was the best.  ~ Roberta

 

Had a lovely time!  Gorgeous condo, sunrise on the beach, sunset on your patio.. bike riding, walking, jogging, photo sessions from Flagler bridge, Bulow state park, and of course, the beach.  A day in St. Augustine, lovely food (Maggie’s, Java Joint, Fisherman’s Net), lots of reading, relaxing, blue skies — and the knowledge that it’s 32 degrees in Illinois!  ~ Narni

 

We’re only too pleased to offer our recommendation.  In actual fact the website does not do it justice – we thought it looked super when we viewed it but in fact was much nicer in the flesh so to speak. ~ Janet and Keith

 

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Flagler Beach.  Your condo is wonderful – clean, well-equipped and comfortable.  Location is great – sunsets, ocean & exploring.  ~ Don and Marilynn

 

As the mum of the family this condo offered everything I could ask for, a real home from home, but with a better view!  Hope to be back next year.  ~ The Cassidys

 

Another month of relaxation and good fishing!  Hope to return in the fall…~ Brenda

 

Can’t believe our time here has come and gone so fast.  We enjoyed ourselves every day – hope to return next year.  Your condo was like a home away from home.  ~ Jim and Rosanne

 

It was a most relaxing month in a most enjoyable environment.  “un appartement de charme”  A quiet view of the lake – beautiful sunset.  The complex is well thought out and maintained.  Felicitations for your well furnished and clean place.  ~ Claudette and Jacques

 

I loved the month I spent at this condo.  Relaxing!  Caught my first red fish, also catfish, grunt, sea trout & crabs. Your kitchen is wonderful.   Hope to rent from again in the future. ~ Brenda

 

Your condo is beautiful and so well equipped.  The view and the scenery outstanding….  ~John and Betty

 

Flagler Beach and your condo were good luck for me!  New job, got engaged, bought a new house.  Loved my months here. ~ Mirella

 

Your condo is even nicer than what the pictures portrayed.  Our favorite spot (besides the beach) is the gazebo, although never did see a manatee!!  We did see a raccoon family, an otter and many birds.  We also saw the shuttle launch!!  Thanks for providing a great place to stay.  ~ Mike & Missy

 

Oh, what a month!  What a wonderful vacation.  You have an awesome place here and we love it.
~ LaDonna and family

 

Just wanted to let you know that we loved our month in Flagler Beach. We were very impressed with your condo; we found it to be spotless, fully equipped and very comfortable. The cleaning crew did an excellent job. Of course, the location is perfect too. We really enjoyed coffee on the porch during the day or a glass of wine in the afternoon, watching all the activity in the bay: pelicans, cormorants, gulls, terns, even a couple of dolphins. The Flagler County area is great – a refreshing contrast to the overcrowding and high-rise nature of most of the rest of Florida.

We had no problems of any kind with the condo or the equipment and Diane was very helpful with information about the area. ~ Jim & Brita

 

Just on our way home from our stay at Marina Bay, what a wonderful time we have had.  We have enjoyed our stay so much.  We had such a lovely time and came home feeling totally relaxed and recharged, even if it was a little early due to our working schedule.  Your condo is beautiful, and the view, wow what can I say, a real pleasure to wake up to every morning.  Everything was in perfect working order and absolutely spotless.  We have enjoyed our stay so much we wondered if
we could book for next year?  ~ Heather
