About justin schaefer
We are a large family that has always and still does own vacation homes in Florida, North Carolina, the Bahamas, Southern Caribbean, and Europe. We can't remember the last time we visited a hotel. To us, what makes a vacation special, is that it is our home to go to and relax after long days, weeks, and months of work. We want you to think of our home in Ponce Inlet as yours and relax as you deserve.
justin schaefer purchased this House in 2005
Why justin schaefer chose Pons Park
Why not this property is a better question. The home is among wonderful neighbors, a window away from soothing ocean sounds, steps away from a gorgeous Atlantic landscape, and a blowing wind away from a relaxing sleep.
What makes this House unique
Sounds and views of the Ocean from secluded elevation. Views of the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. Steps to the ocean and Ponce Inlet Park.

Justin was great, easy to reach and quick to respond. The AC upstairs went out the morning before we arrived, but he arranged to have a temp unit there for us and had already arranged for a new AC unit to be installed within a few days. This house has all the aminities you would need, there and at the beach, the house was clean, close to the ocean and the light house, very relaxing without being over the top "beachy theme" in fact the decor was very interesting and I loved all of the, what I called "hodgepodge" of different era art, nicknacks and furniture, I thought it was great and made you think of the person or persons who actually thought to put some of themselves in the house instead of thinking of it as just a beach house rental. I took my daughter and her family of 4 as well as another grand daughter, the six of us all loved the place and location, hoping this is available and we'll to be able to rent again on our next "beach" vacation. Thank you Justin!
You are an absolute joy. And the comments on the decor... that’s all my mom and all of our family furniture. Other than two sofas we have had the furniture for decades. It makes it home. Thank you Cherry.
Worth every penny and more
This was our most wonderful vacation, could have done nothing more than stay in this wonderful home, walked out to the beach, swim away my days!!! Everything you need in a vacation home and MUCH more! Everything was top quality! Caretaker AND owner kept us fulfilled with anything we could want! Felt like we were secluded in our own little world! The pool was glorious, jacuuzzi fantastic, outdoor fireplace romantic, had all the bells and whistles I could have asked for! Thank you Justin for this wonderful time!
We Had a wonderful time. The owner was super nice and therefore every need
The property was exactly what we wanted and needed. Owner was super nice and easy to get a hold. Pool was wonderful. And the walk to the beach was very short. This was a wonderful vacation and we had a great time. We have already talk to the owner about coming again.
Beautiful home, awsome location. Exactly what we wanted, not many people around, beach very close and private heated pool! Justin is very quick to respond to any questions. The wood burning fireplace out by the pool was perfect! Beds were comfortable, couch pulls out into a bed, all rooms separated for privacy. Family of 7, and had plenty of room! Very quiet and well kept neighborhood. Short drive to Daytona beach for shopping, then back to the nice quiet neighborhood to wind down! The view of the lighthouse from the home is breathtaking. Loved everything about this home, and our vacation this year! Looking forward to coming back! ❤️ Highly recommend!! Side note: we rented a golf cart from salty rentals and it was very convenient! You get into any beach with it, otherwise you have to pay to drive onto beach, or you can walk in for free. We cruised around on the cart every day, and was convenient to haul all the beach supplies! They deliver the cart right to your residence!
What an amazing amazing review of our home! I sit stunned and delighted by your words and I am thrilled beyond belief tyt your vacation was so pleasant. Please come again and be our guests! What a pleasure having you enjoy our home. Till the next time.
Beautiful house with a great peaceful location. It was bike week and it was still quiet
Thanks Dennis... Ponce is quite a peaceful place even with Bike Week activity. Come again and I am thrilled you enjoyed.
Spy cam and misrepresentation.
Potentially a very nice property, but had 3 major issues.
1. Discovered what appeared to be a functioning (plugged in and hot) spy cam concealed behind an empty picture frame located on an upper shelf of the book case to the the right of the TV in the main living area. The spy cam was reported to the local police who took an affidavit and photographed the cam. I believe that spy cams are allowed in Florida if they are in a public area and disclosed. This camera was in a public area, but was not disclosed.
2. Was assured, at the time that I booked, that the inside fireplace was functional. On arrival we discovered that the inside fireplace did not work, in fact it had been disconnected years earlier because of safety concerns. When challenged the owner became very aggressive and demanded that we leave the property. We did eventually leave early, the day after our guests left.
3. The place needs some attention. Some examples are that the kitchen sink leaked, some pillow liners were heavily stained and disintegrated when washed, we found dog hairs on the bedding, and the barbecue was extremely difficult to start.
It is a beautiful house with a great location, and it is obvious that the owner has been making an effort to maintain the property and, and has replaced the appliances and the heating an cooling systems. This could be a true 5 start property if the owner removed the spy cam(s), paid some attention to the small things (linen, plumbing, barbecue) and was a tad more forthright when questioned about the features of the property.
Well of all of my guests you are the only one. There is always one. We went over and over the fire place inside the house. You say that you were "assured" that the fireplace worked. This is patently untrue and unless you had a lapse of memory you are blatantly lying. Please review our communication again. The camera was non-operational and was when I placed it on my shelf. We discussed this. The camera has since been thrown away. The linens are all new so this too is a lie. I have three grills for people to choose from. Two gas with three propane tanks and one charcoal. You mentioned you didn't have gas but yet you did as you said after we spoke. Perhaps you would like me to have a chef on staff as well? Yes we had a leak in the sink which within a few hours was repaired. The disposal was damaged and it was replaced. No more leak. You are a very bored person and you should find a hobby. Please do not communicate with me again and understand that among all the guests I have had that have given 5 stars you are the outlier. So is it me or you? Had any of your comments been true I would have admitted them and repaired them immediately.
Our house is located in a small town at the end of a peninsula boarding a river on one side and the ocean on the other. The ocean is just across the street about a 1 minute walk to the no drive beach. There are several restaurants just minutes away and 2 within walking distance. Disney World is in Orlando about 1 hour and 30 minutes away as is Orlando International Airport. There are several mini-golf business close by as well as a water park. About a 15 minute drive away there is plenty of shopping, including Walmart, Target, Publix, Ross, Bells, Home Depot, and the list goes on. The neighborhood is super quiet and for dog lovers there are 2 dog runs and a dog friendly beach at your disposal. The beach is wide and stretches for miles for nice long walks. There is a Getty within walking distance where you can fish. The park next to the Getty is equipped with picnic tables, bathrooms and showers. Ponce Inlet is definitely a unique place and in my estimation one of the nicest locations on Florida's east coast. It is safe and quiet, we have our own police department and firehouse and several nature preserves within.
