Great Vacation Home

This house was a great place to stay on Ormond Beach. We enjoyed all the room and it was perfect for our little Grandog. Thank you for an excellent vacation home. We hope to stay again in the future. Thank you.

Owner response: It is our goal to share our cottage with others who will enjoy staying there as much as we do. It is always pleasant to have guests return. All of our guests have have been wonderful and are considered our newly found friends. I look forward to going to the cottage soon to tend the flowers and fruit trees. I will also be taking a new set of Pfalsgraf dinnerware and checking to see what else needs to be replaced or replenished.

Comfortable, Charming and Homey
My family (including my mother and our two small children) stayed at Mary Ann's place in April of this year and I can't say enough good things about our 10 days at this Ormond-by-the-Sea house. It was just what we needed. First, the owner was accomodating and pleasant from start to finish. You will get exactly what you see listed and she will deliver on any promises she makes. This is a very good value. The house is clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The neigborhood is quiet and laid-back. Good location just a few minutes away from a great stretch of quiet, gorgeous beach. There is also a little river spot available to sit with a drink and watch the sunset. We used the bikes to get to a couple of little nightspots not far away, grilled clams on the gas grill in the backyard and enjoyed the privacy that the landscaping provides. The owner had no problem with us "child-proofing" the house, and the fenced-in backyard made babysitting a dream. We went canoing at a great state park (Tomoka), which is only a short drive away. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful time at Ormond by the Sea, and loved staying here. Nice quiet neighborhood. The landscaping is so beautiful. We enjoyed the privacy of the back yard and loved going to the beach with umbrellas and chairs provided. We were here a month and could stay 6! This is a great find and reasonably priced. Mary Ann goes out of her way to accommodate your requests. See if you can find the land turtle that lives on the property, we named him lightning! Basic cable was a bit of a let down, but a call to Mary Ann got us additional channels during our stay. House is well stocked with things you'll need.

Owner response: I can't wait to go look for "Lightning" when I get to the house. If others want more channels on cable, it can be arranged. I will consider leaving the service at the higher level when the house is booked to be occupied for longer periods of time.

Ormond Beach Cottage
The beach was a further walk, esp. with gear, than we expected, and we felt we needed to drive. It would have been good to know beforehand that dogs were not allowed on Ormond beach; I just assumed they were. Photos were accurate. House was clean, modernized, well-maintained. We enjoyed the enclosed and landscaped back yard. Back patios could have been cleaner, with the sprinkling system not getting the furniture wet every night. The beaches and the state park were pretty, good for walking, and interesting.

Owner response: Guests are encouraged to ask questions and report any concerns or damage, so owner can respond, and guest enjoyment and satisfaction can be assured. The beach is approximately 200 yards, as seen on zoomable satellite view on website. Bikes and a utility wagon are available for guests who enjoy riding or walking to the beach. Irrigation system operates only one or two nights per week (after midnight), depending on the season and rainfall. Sprinklers are directed only at grass and flowers, not the patio. New custom vertical blinds were installed in living room, June, 2013. Dogs are frequently seen walking with owners, and must be on leash outdoors, if not in fenced back yard. To learn locations of "Volusia County dog parks" or "dog friendly beaches", search online for more information.
Our family had a wonderful time at our stay at Ormond Beach. We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach and convenient store; all within walking distance. Public beach access was close by with lifeguards (safety when you have children) and included were beach chairs and umbrella which saved us room in our vehicle. Resterants were close by when we decided to eat out. With a family of four, we usually ate in with an outside grill and a full kitchen at our disposal, with microwave and full refrigerator. The beds are comfortable and the house is clean and comfortable as well. Our kids loved the fenced in back yard to play and my tween daughter used the glassed in Florida room to listen to music and read, while she was not outside riding the bike that was in the garage. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors we met were very nice. My older son enjoyed the use of watching one of the three T.V.' s or a movie on the DVD, during down time. We were able to minimize our packing because of the washer and dryer, which was a great convenience to a mom when it comes to unpacking when we return home. :). Great time for our family and would recommend it for a place to stay that feels like home away from home.

Owner response: I appreciate your sharing the review for families with children. I am planning to add another bike this summer so couples can ride also. Your recommendation for visitors without a car prompts me to note that there is regular bus service on highway A1A which connects to Daytona and makes stops along the way for passengers to go to the grocery store, restaurants, shopping, and other stops upon request.
Good Value for money.

We stayed here for three weeks. Nice quiet neighborhood within walking distance to beautiful beach and also river. Everything shown and stated on VRBO is accurate. Owner is very helpful with all questions. Limited amount of nightlife but Daytona Beach only a few miles away. There are some very good restaurants within a few miles. Good value for your money. I would suggest adding a few additional TV channels.

Owner response: Thank you for your review of your three week stay at the "hideaway". I hope you and your family will plan to return in the future. I have explored options for increasing TV options and can do so at additional cost. As rentals increase, that will be justified, but also can be done now for those who request channels not currently available.
This is a very comfortable cottage and is furnished with everything you will need.

The cottage is a little over a block from the ocean and many shopping areas are excessible for your enjoyment. We have stayed here for three years. Our golden retriver loves the beautiful back yard. Their is lawn furniture,table with umbrella etc. Ormond Beach is right next to Daytona Beach and so there is a lot for you and your familyu to do. You are only a short distance from Orlando, Magic Kingdom etc., and a short drive to Cocoa Beach and the Space Center. The speedway in Daytona is a must tour,there is also a very fine art museum. Rockefellers home the Cascades is close by and open for tours. You and your family will enjoy this hideaway very much.

The mild winter has flowers and fruit trees blooming already! I look forward to having you come back again soon.

My husband and I rented this lovely cottage Feb and Mar 2012. The owner was very gracious and accommodating. The house is exactly as described and very clean, well stocked and beautifully maintained. It was very comfortable and felt like our "Home Away from Home". Excellent location, quiet neighborhood and 5 min walk to beach. We brought our dogs and they loved the fenced in back yard. Lots of patio furniture to relax and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon tea. We are so happy we discovered your wonderful Cottage By The Sea and thanks for being pet friendly. Looking forward to spending another winter there.

Owner response: I hope you will enjoy the secure wireless wi-fi and kitchen cart added since you were here last year. Welcome back!
I chose this home because it was close to the beach, and I was looking for a place to stay in the Daytona area because my niece was getting her RN degree. This house was charming! We were able to have a family gathering after the ceremony, and with the Florida room off the great room, there was ample space for everyone to sit and have conversation. I also brought my dog and we enjoyed the pretty landscaped fenced in back yard! It was a very quiet residential neighborhood, and I felt comfortable walking my dog around the block. The furnishings were attractive and very comfortable, with every amenity available. I really felt like I was staying in a "home away from home". Early morning walks on the beach were a daily event! It is a beautiful peaceful beach. I certainly hope to return soon!

About the owner: A native of Western NC, I grew up in Asheville and spent summers in Lake Lure where my parents built a summer home, which became the family hideaway for relaxation and recreation. Eventually the Lake Lure hideaway became my year-round home. In 1999,my time share week in Ormond Beach became my new hideaway which I enjoyed so much that I never exchanged for another location. After raising four children and spending 33 years as a school teacher and counselor, I retired, but spent another 7 years working in schools part-time and currently serving as a town commissioner in Lake Lure. In 2010 I married my husband, Bill who is retired from US Air Force and US Postal Service. Together we enjoy working in crafts and community activities. Bill is a woodworker who specializes in converting obsolete and antique post office box doors into coin banks and handgun safes. I create unique hand-braided wool rugs and demonstrate at historic landmarks and the Village of Yesteryear at the NC State Fair. We enjoy escapes to Ormond Beach, and have furnished the cottage to provide a restful reflection of our enjoyment of seascapes and tropical plants. We personally planted and maintain palms, ornamentals, and tropical plants, beginning with a habiscus which was a Mother's Day gift and made the trip from NC in 2009! The cottage is our current hideaway, where we look forward to spending more time soon and sharing with family, friends, and guests who will enjoy and find comfort and renewal.
Why the Owner Chose Ormond Beach:
For three years I looked at condos and houses for a place where I could spend more time in Florida during my retirement years. Ormond was my choice because the climate is comfortable year-round. Cold days are rare in winter, and the ocean breeze provides relief from Summer's heat. Since my family includes 'Diva', a sweet, loving Doberman Pinccher, the cottage had room, inside and out to provide privacy and allow pets to be included. The fenced back yard was a definite plus for us. We have cultivated flowering jasmine vines which have covered the fence, creating privacy for outdoor living, dining and sunning. The garage and storage shed provide ample storage for lawn furniture, bicycle, beach gear, utility wagon and even the fully decorated Christmas tree. A 10' x 10' easy up tent for additional shade is also available.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Save your drinking water money! City water passes though our purification system and results in pure, soft water throughout the cottage. Plumbing and hot water system were replaced in 2010. A well provides irrigation for the lawn and gardens automatically. A timer controls the sprinkler system after dark, while you sleep. Located between Flagler and Daytona Beaches, surrounded by state parks & recreation areas on the Halifax River and a short drive to ocean piers, the cottage is only a short walk to the quiet, non-commercial beach. Restaurants, shopping, theaters,art museum, library and family entertainment or nite spots are conveniently located a short drive away. Historic St. Augustine, shopping outlets, Ponce Lighthouse, Casino Cruises, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona Speedway are nearby attractions. Drive an hour southwest of Daytona on I-4 to Orlando or Sanford Airports and central Florida attractions, including Disney, Seaworld, Universal Studios, LeggoLand and more. Jacksonville airport is 1 1/2 hours North on I-95.
