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 Ormond By The Sea

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!

Comfortable beach house with a great pool - plus a ping pong table

  • 5 of 5

Owners really do all they can to make sure you enjoy their home! House is only 8 houses away from the quiet, no-drive beach. It was wonderful to have my morning coffee in the screened porch (with ceiling fan!), then go to the beach or just spend a few hours in the pool. Sun deck in back has an umbrella for when you still want to be outside, but have had enough sun for awhile. Plus, there was usually a bit of a breeze on the sun deck. Air conditioning works great, plus many ceiling fans in the home. Nice washer and dryer in the garage, along with a brand new ping pong table! Very relaxing stay!!

Spacious and everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We were in awe at the house! Amazingly spacious with an open floor plan so it was easy for all of us to spend time together. You can see the pool from the living room/dining room perfect for having kids there! Back yard and pool area were awesome as well! Really spacious! You can walk to the beach in 5 minutes or less and see the sky over the ocean from the end of the driveway. We were also basically alone on the beach which was awesome! No crowds to contend with! Have already recommended the home to several friends! If we go back to Daytona we will definitely stay here again!!! ❤️

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable and a short distance (about a block and half) from the ocean. The kitchen is completely updated and made cooking big meals easy. The pool is bigger than expected and there is a wonderful "cabana" area with hammocks that our teenagers really enjoyed (as well as the sound system). The large screened in porch gives a very enjoyable place to gather for meals, and also worked well for my elderly parents to be able to sit and watch the kids play in the pool.

The master bedroom was a good size, although the bathroom is a little small but has been updated and looks very nice. There is another bedroom with queen beds that is sizeable, but the third bedroom is a little small (still fits a queen size bed). The 2nd bathroom is small but the water pressure is great! Living room is large and there's plenty of seating. We loved having a garage and laundry/tables in the garage was also quite useful.

All in all, we thought the house was wonderful and enjoyed the location as well!

Comfortable, Convenient and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our second stay here just as much as we did the first time (two years ago). Our family group of two grandparents, two parents and two children was very comfortable in the house, which was spotlessly clean. With the beach just a short walk away as well as a beautiful fenced yard and pool, we never ran out of things to do. The kids enjoyed the playground at nearby Bicentennial Park. For an outing on a rainy afternoon we visited Angell and Phelps Chocolate Factory in Daytona Beach. We enjoyed grilling food in the back yard and visiting nearby restaurants like Alfie's. Nancy, the owner, is very responsive to messages and a pleasure to work with. We hope to return again and make more great family memories!
