Our Home By the Sea has been in my family for 4 generations. It is my 'childhood' home. We take a great amount of pride in caring for the property and caring for the guests that stay with us. I live locally (10 mins away) and my family & I look forward to the time we are able to come home and enjoy our Home By the Sea
The Owner purchased this house in 1958
You will have the oppurtunity to see & experience Dolphins Playing in the surf, Turtles Nesting, Mother Wright Whales Calving & of course Stunning Sunrises
Thank you so much Pat, Gordon & Cathy for renting us your perfect vacation get away!! We had the most fabulous time walking down to the beach every morning & being able to walk back up for a little lunch, then head back down for the rest of the day. Our kids ages 4 & 6 absolutely loved it!! We collected sea shells & built beautiful sand castles every day with all of your beach toys. They also rode waves every day on your boogie boards, we did too!! I could have floated in the ocean for hours on the boogie board. The sea birds were amazing to watch as they would dive down to catch fish right around us. We also saw several Dolphins!! Thank you so much for giving us the best family vacation! Your home was perfect & very well equipped for cooking & beach outings.
Once again, our stay at the "Home By the Sea" was perfect! This is at least our 4th stay, and we couldn't be happier. All you need is to bring food.....everything else is there! The setting can't be beat. - With very few steps across the front lawn, you have your own private path right down the beach. The beach itself is never crowded in this area, so you feel like you have it practically to yourself. The house is always very clean and has ample dishes, cookware, linens...right down to beach towels and toys provided! Since our last stay, the hosts/owners have added a private outdoor shower with hot/cold water and an added private patio area at the side of the house. It is very suitable for anyone who may have mobility issues since the house is direct oceanfront and there are two nice patio areas from which you can directly see the beach and hear the waves! Quite frankly, the property is perfect for anyone who enjoys easy access to the beach/ocean! We can't say enough about how easy it is to work with Gordon and family. He is quick to respond to any questions and offers terrific suggestions for sight-seeing and terrific restaurants. I can honestly say that when our schedules allow a trip to the Daytona area, we arrange our visit to when the "Home By the Sea" is available! We can't imagine staying anywhere else! There is plenty of privacy given the bedrooms/bathrooms arrangement, so it is perfect for families or couples. The home is on a private drive, so there is minimal traffic, and yet it is very convenient to wonderful restaurants and a very nice supermarket. We are already planning our next visit....to our "Home By the Sea", of course! There's simply nowhere else for us. :)
My wife and I stayed at the Home By the Sea for one week in September, 2016. The first thing I will say is that the location simply can't be beat. It is ON the beach, with a private entrance from the front yard. The street the house is on is a private street, and therefore, there is almost no traffic whatsoever, so the neighborhood is extremely quiet.
The house is older, but extremely well kept-up, and has all of the supplies you need for your vacation (dishes, sheets, beach supplies, etc.). Gordon was fantastic about keeping in touch and giving us all of the necessary information when we needed it. He suggested restaurants, gave us ideas about things to do, and helped when we had a minor question about how to use something in the house. Very accessible anytime we needed him...
This was the first time we used VRBO and it was a great experience! Thanks so much for your hospitality!
The owner was very good at communicating everything with us in preparation for our visit. His family home has a lot of wonderful history he shared with me. We were able to watch a rocket launch in the distance in the middle of the night, the home is in a pretty private area with low volumes of people on the beach. Thank you to a gracious host and house with a home feel to it. I have nothing but good things to say about the visit.
I would stay here again! Beautiful view, great location, the home is clean & furnished with everything you would need.
This home is just what me, my husband and his brother and wife were looking for. To be able to go out the door and walk right onto the beach was the best part. It was practically like having our own private beach area with no crowds. All we needed to hang out on the beach was provided-umbrellas, chairs, beach towels, coolers boogie boards. The really neat thing was the private outdoor shower to rinse off with after being on the beach and in the ocean. We stayed in the front bedroom with an incredible view of the beach and ocean every morning (we even saw some porpoise . Gordon was in touch from the time we got to the house and answered all of our questions and even had restaurant tips for us. He was easily accessible when we had a question. He was so nice about sending me a couple of things I had left at the house. These Texans had the most delicious fresh seafood at every restaurant we tried and there are several close by. The grocery store was just a few blocks away as well. This location was close to some fun day trips to Ponce Inlet, Daytona Beach and St. Augustine. If we are ever in this part of Florida again we would love to stay at Home by the Sea.
