We would like to thank Gordon and Cathy, They got us in early to began our fantastic vacation. The house was really clean and beautiful nothing like opening your eyes to a wonderful sun rise. we were looking for a quiet beach house away from the busy beaches and that's just what we got. we spent a perfect vacation with my grandkids and my mom and dad, those memories will stay with me for a long time.. from the fresh donut shop just across the street to the new York style pizza restaurant also just up the road we enjoyed a night at Outback steak house for dinner. the house had everything we needed Beach toys for the kids, beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler. I would highly recommend Cathy and Gordon's Beach home "WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK" also Gordon would text me on things going on like the space shuttle shooting off A++++++

Owner response: Thank you for your response, we are thrilled to hear you & your family enjoyed your stay at our Home by the Sea & the Ormond/Daytona Beach area. We look forward to having you as guests again. Gordon & Cathy
We enjoyed the House By the Sea immensely! It was perfect in every way! The views of the ocean from both the living area and bedroom was beautiful. It was very quiet and peaceful. The house was beautifully decorated and you couldn't ask for anything more. It was well stocked! Cathy and Gordon were the best. Very aware of our needs and troubles through the airport! Thanks also for the box of goodies and cold water when we arrived! We will definitely come back! Thanks again!

Our first family beach vacation
Our first family beach vacation
The street on which this house was located on was nestled within several other residential streets that broke up the hotel units. Large hotels are visible to the right and left once you are on the beach, but this doesn't detract from the cozy private atmosphere. The pictures are accurate in showing an older but well-kept home, a lush backyard, private walk to the beach, and expansive, aesthetic shoreline. What the pictures can't show/describe: Waking and falling asleep to rhythmic sound of the ocean waves, the quietness and surprising tranquility of this community (located less than 10 minutes from the bustle of Daytona - we popped over once and did the beach cruise there). It was a great choice for a quiet (first) family trip; our three children did NOT want to leave! Will definitely consider coming again; great price for what you get.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind words, we very happy to hear you & your family enjoyed our Home By the Sea and we look forward to you bringing your family back soon.
My wife and I came down here with our 3 year old and my mother and there was more room than we even needed! The house was very clean and everything we could have needed was already there. Mrs. Crowley was very sweet; she met us there upon our arrival and was available by phone if we needed anything. You can't beat this location! As the description says, it is LITERALY steps from the ocean! We will definitely be back!

We could not have asked for a more enjoyable vacation. It was a home away from home. We did not have to take anything but our clothes. The house was exactly what the owners stated that it would be. It was in the perfect location and very clean. The owners were extremely nice and treated us like they knew us. We went with a group of friends for bike week. I would recommend to anyone with a family of small children.

This vacation home is splendid. We came together as a family and spent quality time together listening to the ocean at night and on the beach during the day. As has already been said in other reviews this place is conveniently located near grocery stores & restaurants. It also has a dryer & washer, plus many other amenities

Great experience. Ideal beach cottage in the tradition of Old Florida. Not in the big development/ commercial/ High Rise Condo area, which is nice. But, close enough to those areas to take advantage of them and return to your peaceful cottage.

I love this place! It was very hard to leave. My cousin and I rented for 4 days. It was so beautiful the views the location. watch the sunrise from my bed in the morning. This is a well appointed ( meaning comfortable, has everything you need, just bring groceries and a bathing suit), comfortable house. The front porch, the Ocean right out of our door. It was so quiet and peaceful. There are lots to do around there but we just didn't want to leave. Owner is great, answered all questions got us settled then left us to enjoy.
