About Nancy

Our family loves to vacation at the beach with all the comforts of home. We traveled to the Daytona/Ormond Beach area for many years before deciding to buy a renovated mid-century-modern gem. The unspoiled, no drive beach is within easy walking distance and the riverfront pier is just down the street. Ocean breezes, warm sun, relaxing atmosphere.

Nancy purchased this house in 2013

Why Nancy chose Knollwood Beach

It's perfect for our family and we think you will agree, all the comforts of home while vacationing.

What makes this house unique

This is a private home, in a nice family oriented neighborhood and we went 'all out' making it comfortable for ourselves and our guests. The furniture and beds are super comfy, the kitchen is well equipped and the surrounding area is quiet and peaceful. The screened porch, pool and backyard are private and well equipped and you can hear the ocean waves. We have a very short walk to a 'no drive' section of the beach and less than 10 minutes drive to the busier and 'world famous' drive-on Daytona Beach. It is a short walk to a dock on the beautiful Halifax River (ICW) and great local eateries abound. Perfect for a relaxing vacation!

Really nice place to rent

  • 5 of 5

If I happened to win the lottery and wanted to own a house not too far from Orlando and on the beach, I think I’d want this house.

First, our particulars: my wife and I flew from Oregon to meet up with our daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter from NJ for several days in FL. We were there in January, which meant that, appealing though the pool was, it was just too cold to enjoy, even though it has a solar heater.

The house is a 5-minute walk from the beach, but we had to bundle up the way one would for a summer beach visit in Oregon.

It’s about a 90-minute drive from the theme parks in Orlando, and about the same to the Kennedy Space Center, but the drive’s not bad.

The house has modern bathrooms, marble (or marble-like) floors, comfortable beds, and comfortable furniture. There is a nice TV in the common room, and TVs in all the bedrooms. (I suppose they all work well, we never got around to turning any on.)

The kitchen is well-equipped with modern appliances, and the house was spotlessly clean on our arrival. The HVAC appears to do a good job both for heating, and on the one day we needed it, cooling.

I’ve heard stories of wild, noisy neighborhoods on FL beaches, but this was not that kind of neighborhood. It was peaceful, and opening a window meant hearing the surf.

There is a nearby park with a trail that takes you to beautiful views of the other side of the peninsula.

This review would not be complete without some gripes: we found the Wi-Fi painfully slow [Speedtest by Ookla: 12.3 mbps download, 1.10 upload]; we never could find the router in order to try rebooting it. And a house this nice could use nicer toilet paper than single-ply; a sign in the bathroom says the plumbing is “original,” but we ran over to the nearby Publix and bought some better toilet paper.

If we decided to return to the area, I’d plan on trying to rent this house as a first choice.

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

Even though the weather didn't cooperate as much as we would have liked, the property was just what we needed. Comfortable beds and everything we needed in the kitchen. Really enjoyed the Ping Pong table too.

Well worth the price

The house was perfect. The wife wanted to just move in and rent it but the only down side was that we didn't get to stay longer!
