About Patti Young
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!
Patti Young purchased this House in 2017
Why Patti Young 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. The neighborhood is quiet and calm. No 'partiers' anywhere around!I It is just the perfect, serene, quiet, but joyful spot!
What makes this House unique
This house is just eight 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, so many nature parks and preserves, historic sights, and a Publix for groceries. St. Augustine is 40 minutes north on A1A and Daytona is about 15 minutes south on A1A. And Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and more just over an hour away. You are sure to find what pleases you in the local restaurants. If fishing is your pleasure then Ormond Beach is a great location for you as well!

Amazing home, friendly neighborhood, close to beach!
We vacationed at this lovely home in May and could not have been more impressed. We have stayed at a few homes before and by far this is our favorite as it had all that we look for in a vacation home: privacy (fenced in yard), walking distance to the beach, 2 full baths, and a pool! For me, walking distance to the beach is very important as I like to go back and forth throughout the day and this home was a perfect distance, located off the main road so you do not hear cars but close enough to walk to the beach. The home is very well cared for and you can notice all the little details to make you feel at home and at the beach. You will see signs throughout the home with beach themes. The neighbors are beyond friendly, and we got to know everyone quickly as they say hello and even welcome you over for coffee. Patti was extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure we had a pleasant experience. We will definitely be booking with her again and recommending her to anyone visiting the area. Thank you Patti for a wonderful experience!
Thank you, friends, for staying in our Ormond Beach home. We are so VERY happy it was a good experience for you. We simply love the vibe of Ormond Beach, adore our wonderful neighbors, and our quick proximity to the beach (but from a really quiet, private home/area)! And we are very happy you loved it, too! We SOOOOO hope you come back next time you come to Ormond!!!!!
You will not be disappointed!
If you are looking for a nice, clean, quiet place to relax, this is it! Exactly how the pictures show. Close to beach and shopping/restaurants. We will definitely return again. The response from the owner was beyond amazing. Very helpful and truly wants you to have the best experience possible. Cannot say enough good about this place!!
Great location. Property has everything you will need.
Well equipped home. Excellent location. Friendly neighbors. Can easily reach beach, attractions to see and way too many places to eat. Stayed February 2018.
Great place and Location
We really enjoyed our first time in Florida and plan on staying here again when we come back!. House is in great location!
Amazing home away from home...
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..
We love that our property is a home away from home. A stressless vacation is important. We, including Julie, are always available for questions as well as answers. We look forward to having you back as a repeat guest.
First Time using VRBO and was Well Worth it!!!
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....
Thank you very much for your review. We are always excited when a new user of VRBO has a great experience at our property. We were happy to communicate with you. You and your family were a great experience for us as well. We look forward to having you as a guest in the future.
Beautiful, quiet neighborhood! Clean, bright home. Pets welcome. Pool is fantastic. 1-2 minute walk to beach. All beach supplies here, beach wagon, cooler, chairs, floats, toys, beach towels, and more!
