About the Property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Eclectic, reclusive, residence on the ocean only rented out a few times a year, surfers paradise, museum quality surfing memorabilia, on 1/2 acres , very cute town of Ponce Inlet, large master with large 1890's king, loft with queen over looks window to ocean, back room with two single beds, has a really nice couch if needed. Our rates vary from who you are to when your asking to stay. Unfortunately VRBO doesn't give us the flexibility in being flexible in sharing what we would lease it for, so what you see in the rate section is general, we like couples, small families, young families looking for a great vacation, adults looking for true R and R !!

This is a very private home, no smokers, this is not a home for large blast out beach's parties, it's an intimate setting for a couple, small family, small children-looking to relax and experience what Florida beach houses used to be like.

A classic Florida beach haven , known as ' Ebb Tide' approx 1750 square feet with a super huge deck overlooking the ocean. Very unique, clean, 2.8 miles from the inlet to the south and 2.8 miles to Sun Glow pier north.

If you rent once you'll be back. washer dryer, cable TV, wi-fi-DSL, walk to North Turn restaurant and 7-11. Very clean. You'l be expected to leave it the way you found it. It has exceeded expectations, no pets, no smoking- very very cool house-

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I found this house while searching for the perfect beach 25 years ago with my girlfriend who now is my wife ( Leslie) 'Ebb Tide' was built in 1967 by a very wealthy lady from Chattanooga who just wanted peace and quiet and escape from her life- It's our home now, we occasional spend a lot of time traveling and away so now after 26 years of ownership we are opening it up just a little. We have two small children ( 13 &14 ), we're surfers so all our surfing / paddling lives are imprinted all over the house. It's a very romantic house and as the former owner told me when I purchased it - it comes alive after midnight!@! It's a cool house one of kind.

Why the Owner Chose Ponce Inlet, FL, USA:
Ponce Inlet is Florida best kept secret even if its started to be developed in the late 90's. There's a reason racing was started here, the beaches are very very wide and non driving. Ponce Inlet is a sweet little town, last one leaving New Symrna Beach please turn off the lights- we are a no drive beach, meaning no cars and pure relaxation Seriously Once you go to Ponce Inlet you'l be back- ' where the ocean meets the river' sweet little town, theres a cool old light house, a turtle hospital, neat inlet you can walk out on, no drive beachs, great surf . Stop off at my ice cream shop Ho daddy O's or attend my surf and sport camp during the summer months. One of the east coasts best surf is right down at the inlet- out back isn't too bad either , especially on south swell!

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
quiet, quiet, quiet , surf , surf , surf, sleep , sleep , sleep there's stuff to do around town but who wants to leave?? Light House is always fun, Turtle Hospital at Inlet is cool, walking the Inlet is always our fav- sun sets on river w/a fish sandwich and beer can't be beat- Must stop and see Ho Daddy O's SURF CREAM!!! that's my shop. Walk to Ponce Preserve from my house, very very cool! This is a perfect old style Florida beach house and experience. The sport of paddle boarding started right out in back of my house in the mid 90's- look it up in Wikipedia
