After the state’s review of Flagler Counties’ policy on vacation rentals, it was confirmed the county cannot intervene to stop the use of single-family homes as vacation rentals. This has become a growing problem in Ocean Hammock located on the beachside in Palm Coast, FL. Through the downfall of the real estate market many of the homes in the community were sold as distressed sales. Investors saw the opportunity, bought the properties and are now enlisting them in short term rental programs. The large estate homes are now being rented out on the nightly basis causing permanent residences frustration and feeling violated. Their million dollar homes have short-term tenants next door!
For every problem, there is a solution! Plantation Bay, a comparable Flagler County golf community, does not allow short term renters. The minimal rental period is 7 months and they have to be approved/registered with the HOA office to rent. Your investment is protected with neighbors who care for the community and amenities that you pay for! Plantation Bay is just 4.5 miles away from the ocean and has 45 holes of pristine golf. The community is gated with 24 hr guards, spa and fitness center, 2 clubhouses and 2 community pools. From beautiful, well maintained resales to building your dream home with new construction you can surely find your piece of paradise in not only your home but neighborhood too.
