About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath With Salt Water Pool. 30 days minimum.

Dragonflies love to hover and dip in the backyard salt water pool. They float on the gentle beach breezes that you can feel sitting right by the pool. The pool is just steps out of the french doors from the kitchen and dining area. Our property (we just purchased and decorated late this summer) is just eight houses from non-driving Ormond Beach (2 minute walk at the most). We have a large master "flamingo themed" bedroom with queen bed and en suite bathroom. And a light and airy "beachy themed" guest bedroom with a queen bed as well. The front room has a large sectional and many comfy chairs on which family and friends can gather in comfort. There is a queen hide-a-bed in the sectional and a double air bed for extra friends or family that want to stay over. (So house can sleep 6 easily and 8 if using air mattress). Both bathrooms are full bathrooms that include tub/shower. There is a large enclosed outdoor shower with hot & cold water for washing the sand off after a sunny day at the beach. Our bright full kitchen has a new dishwasher, oven, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, pots & pans, and dishes & silverware. The pool is a salt water pool for all guests to enjoy (and does not hurt your eyes!)! We have a brand new gas grill to enjoy cooking by the pool. There are plenty of beach accessories including 5 rafts/floats, 1 boogie board, 1 large cooler, 1 beach wagon with jumbo tires, 4 beach chairs multiple beach towels. There are also 3 adult bikes,1 kids bike, and bike locks. There are flat screen TVs in the living room and both bedrooms. Cable and WiFi included. In the two-car garage you will find a washer and dryer and laundry sink. The two bathrooms are stocked with bath towels and wash clothes. The backyard is securely fenced and very private. Our dogs LOVE the springy grass and places to lay in the Florida sun! We have stainless steel dog bowls in the kitchen area for your furry friends as well. There are books and board games for family/friend time. There are so many beautiful sights, great places to eat, bike, walk, explore in the area. You will NOT get bored! We look forward to having you as a guest in our sweet little beach side home!

About Jo Ann Hemelrick

About owners Kate and Patti --- We are beach lovers! We live in Iowa but come to Ormond By The Sea to lower our blood pressure and let go of our cares. We gather with our family, lounge in the pool, stroll to the beach, bike on the bike path, scoop the Ormond loop, and - always- have fish and chips at Lagerhead's!!! We tell our friends that being at our home on Ormond Beach is like living in the movie Cocoon (without having to be placed in a nursing home!). We love our dogs and they love coming down with us and running on the "bouncy" Florida grass and chasing the lizards!

Why Jo Ann Hemelrick chose Spanish Waters

This house is just such a comfortable gathering place. It is very spacious and clean. The bedrooms are spacious. The bathrooms so retro-cute! The kitchen with bar area, gathering-height table, and french doors right out to the pool is very family-friendly. There is a small desk for catching up with e-mail (if you have to). The pool is like a giant bathtub --- and we often lounge for hours. We have one of the sweetest fenced grassy backyards I've seen anywhere around. And the neighborhood is quiet and calm. No partiers anywhere around!I t is just the perfect, serene, quiet, but joyful spot!

What makes this house unique

This house is just 8 houses to the ocean and located in a very quiet, residential neighborhood. We can hear the waves and feel the beach breezes as we sit by the pool in the backyard. There is a dedicated walk-over directly to the non-driving beach right at the beach end of the street. At the other end of the street you can kayak in the Halifax River! Fantastic restaurants close by and a Publix for groceries. St. Augustine is 40 minutes north on A1A and Daytona is about 15 minutes south on A1A. You are sure to find what pleases you in the local restaurants. If fishing is your pleasure then Ormond Beach is the location for you!

Amazing home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

1st time renting a house for our family vacation and wasn't sure what to expect... Well let me say this home away from home was the perfect choice for my family. Any worries and stress of getting to your destination completely disappear when you open the door and see this cozy beach get away home .I can not say enough about how the owners of the property and Julie ( our contact / go to person) which most definitely have went above and beyond to make sure you would have everything you need or want even the little things you might have forgotten to pack. The hospitality of the neighbors / neighborhood to the short walk to the beach were absolutely amazing. I could not have made a better choice to relax and enjoy a vacation. This will be our vacation spot for anytime that we just need to get away. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing / stress free vacation.. Thank you again to the owners and Julie for making this an amazing experience for my family..

First Time using VRBO and was Well Worth it!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was hesitant at first when searching for a place to stay for our mini-vacation to get away from home for a few days. This place had everything required to have a great experience away from home from linens, cookware, utensils, shampoos, laundry detergent, fabric softener, bicycles, grill, etc. all the way down to the brand new toothbrushes and goggles for the kids to use in the pool. The Owner was very helpful in assisting me to book our stay as well as keeping contact for any additional assistance if needed by having her own personal cell phone number in case I need help with anything. This was a great experience for my family and I and we will plan on returning again closer to the summer time. Thank you again Jo-Ann for everything....
