Guestbook comments from the owner

Gordon is exceptional in every way. Home By the Sea is a wonderful and beautiful beachfront home that has such attention to detail. The beach truly is the backyard. Our family felt incredibly welcomed and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We are so thankful to Gordon and his family for opening up such a precious place for other families to enjoy! What a gift! We love Home By the Sea!

BEAUTIFUL ocean front home for great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the beautiful Home by the Sea 10+ times! The location can’t be beat!! The home is clean and stocked with everything needed to enjoy a comfortable stay. Plenty of room for our family of 6. Nicely updated, fully stocked kitchen with a beautiful view of the ocean makes cooking on vacation less of a chore! Patio is great, with an unbeatable view(saw some dolphins swimming by)and the outdoor shower is terrific after a day on the beach! No need to worry about beach chairs, towels or toys, it’s all here! Located on a quiet street with friendly neighbors. Many restaurants, attractions and supermarket all nearby. Gordon and Cathy are wonderful hosts!! Thank you for the recommendation to visit Silver Glen Springs, we had a great time!! We look forward to our next stay!!‭

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Gordon and.Cathy we're great hosts! They made sure we had everything we needed. The home was stocked with all the necessities to feel like home and to be able to prepare meals, even a grill. They shared with us the best place to buy local seafood.There were beach toys and boogie boards.

A fun time! Thanks so much!

This home is perfectly situated in Ormond Beach for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This home faces the beach at the end of a quiet residential street. It is very well maintained and very comfortably laid out. Our family of four spent a relaxing week, easily moving from house to beach and back again. There are plenty of beach accessories available to use, so no need to pack your own. The owner is super easy to work with, responsive and knowledgeable about the area. Favorite surprise aspect about the property: completely private outdoor shower!! Our family would definitely want to book here again given the opportunity.
