About Timothy Cook

I recently retired after 27 years as a fireman/paramedic for the City of West Palm Beach. My wife is still working part-time as a dental hygienist. Our children are now graduating High school and College at this time. We also have an older son that recently moved to Arizona and is a graduate from UCF. My wife is originally from West Va. and I grew up in Lake Worth, FL. We also have our little pet dog Chili Pepper.

Timothy Cook purchased this House in 2010

Why Timothy Cook chose Ormond Beach

We love the old florida atmosphere that we remember as we were growing up in the 60's. We love bike riding, fishing, boating and just relaxing on the beach with family and friends. We plan on having many family gatherings here for years to come.

What makes this House unique

We are so close to everything and yet at the same time we are in such a unique location. Like a secret hide-a-way in the center of it all. We are minutes away from Daytona and Flagler Beaches (10 min.), Historic St. Augustine (50 min.) and Cape Canaveral (1 hr. 30 Min.), Disney, SeaWorld, Universal and Islands of Adventure are about 1 hour away. Lots and lots of fabulous restaurants, shopping and grocery stores are very close, within a few miles.

                                                                We very much liked the cottage and the amenities there. It had everything we needed to make our month-long stay comfortable and relaxed with nice furnishings and surroundings. Other than food, we didn’t need to buy a thing! It’s a short walk to the beach and everything you need for your treks there. The beds were super-comfy and the master shower was great. We didn’t lack a thing! I would happily revisit this cute little cottage. Thanks to the caretaker for his attentiveness too!

                                                                Thank you for your kind comments and we are so glad your stay was a good one. We would welcome you back at any time.

                                                                The neighborhood is quiet and close to the beach... the perfect spot for a quick getaway.

                                                                Our stay here was fantastic. The home was exactly what we were looking for. The owner even called us to give us additional information to make sure our stay was complete. I would highly recommend this location to anyone.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thank you for your kind response. Our caretaker called and remarked that he only wished that all our guests were so clean and pleasant. Glad you had a great stay and hope we will see you again. Tim

                                                                Cute and Fantastic Location!

                                                                Allison D.Concord, NC

                                                                This mini vacation was a gift from my sister and I's boss. We love Ormond Beach, but we haven't had a chance to experience it like this. When we arrived, I immediately noticed how peaceful and friendly the neighborhood is. Our pups were anxious to explore, too. We called Tim D. (there are a few Tim's. Haha) to be let in and learn the ins and outs of the cottage like the auto-locking door secret. The beach decor fits the cottage perfectly and sets the tone for the vacation. You enter right into the full size kitchen, which was stocked enough to get started. Tim D. told us he built the buffet/Murphy bed, which we found creative, and my sister used it for our stay and thought it was comfortable (she's 5'4" for reference). The master bedroom is ultra comfortable (the mattress is like a hug). I love the French doors that lead out directly to the patio. The backyard was a huge reason why I chose to book this cottage. The fencing off to the left did make me nervous with our small dogs due to gaps, but they loved running freely (which we don't have a yard at home). Other highlights include the washer & dryer, which was fantastic to conquer any sweaty or ocean-sprayed clothing, private dock access to the river (sunsets are worth it), and a private beach access path across A1A (it's sea turtle time, but we brought our pups to Flagler 'n kept them out of trouble). We ate dinner at the highly recommended Betty's (portion size wasn't much, but the flavor was yummy) and enjoyed Peach Valley Cafe near Grenada for breakfast (lemon berry pancakes!). I recommend signing up for Plenti and getting good deals on groceries at Winn Dixie instead of Publix. I also recommend checking out St. Augustine if you are interested in history, shopping, restaurants, breweries, cafes and more. It was worth the hour drive north on the A1A. There were pet-friendly patio dining and shops. Parking was a flat rate of $12 in the visitor center garage. Overall, I had a great time in this cottage. It was very very clean, well-stocked, and great for a couple or a small family to bond and create memories. It was in the perfect location for all sorts of activities for a great rate each night. You should stay here as soon as possible.

Clean and bright, confortable, everything you could need and more, When you travel, you always forget certain things. Riding our bikes along the ocean was absolutely great, no traffic, just pure joy !! Walkng distance to the beach and on quiet nights, you can hear the waves. All services are close, shopping, good restaurants. Nice landlord, very helpful. Thank you The Cook family and Tim (landlord)
