There are only 8 houses on this private access road with direct access to the beach! This section of the beach is reserved for pedestrians - no vehicles allowed. The home has an open floor plan with plenty of visiting space and allows for great ocean views through the wall of glass facing the beach. Just look at the recent photos for proof!

RELAX in this fully furnished bungalow with updated furniture, queen sized beds (new for 2017) in spacious bedrooms, large dining room table and convenient extended bar top for entertaining along with a stocked kitchen with all the essentials (dishes, cooking pots, silverware, toaster, coffeemaker, blender, etc.) and modern stainless steel appliances.

Beach bikes, ocean kayaks, water toys, BBQ grill, outside seating and dining table are all tucked away in the garage for your use!

Plenty of dining options, banks and a Publix Supermarket are within walking distance. For additional activities, drive a few minutes south on A1A to the Daytona Oceanwalk with restaurants, movie cinema, lively boardwalk with nighttime activities and the Daytona Lagoon Waterpark or head north to Flagler Beach and historic St. Augustine. Even Orlando's theme parks are only 45 min away for a perfect day-trip.

Note to pet owners: While your (well-behaved) pets are welcome in our home and in the neighborhood, Volusia County does not allow dogs on the beach. (We do sometimes see Owners with their dogs early in the morning before beach patrol starts working.) There are dog parks in the area which are very popular with local pet owners.

Please note this is a strictly NON-SMOKING property and you risk losing your entire security deposit if you disregard this rule.

*Note: $75 professional cleaning fee at move out.

About Owner- Peter McNiece

We live and work in Gainesville and are fortunate enough to enjoy our fabulous beach house on the weekends. Husband is an avid Hobie Cat sailor and we spend the summer weekends sailing and kayaking in the gorgeous ocean just steps from our door. Work and cooler temperatures prevent us from using the house as much in the winter so we're looking for long term renters to take extra special care of the home while enjoying all it has to offer!

Owner- Peter McNiece purchased this house in 2005

Why Owner- Peter McNiece chose Ormond By The Sea

Location, location, location! Many other properties were available on the other side of A1A, but being TRULY beach front was a priority to us. We find many listings advertising themselves as oceanfront or oceanview but are blocks from the water. We see the sand and the surf while sitting on our couch or cooking meals in the kitchen and love it!

What makes this house unique

Too numerous to mention! Just read the description again- you'll get the idea!

Note: You can pay for your vacation with an eCheck without incurring any additional fees. If you pay with a credit card, however, you will be charged processing fees by VRBO's payment system. These will be deducted from your Security Deposit so I encourage everyone to pay with an eCheck.

Very nice place right on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying here. The house was very clean and plenty of room. It was great that we were able to use the beach chairs and other beach items, our kids had a blast. Great place to stay and hopefully we will be back here again.

I had the opportunity to stay at this home for two weeks. Not only was the house nicely updated but both garages were packed with new items to enjoy at the beach, in addition to the new grill to use. The private drive was full of friendly neighbors. The location is ideal for a visit into Daytona or Flagler. I highly recommend staying in this home!

Beautiful Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an amazing beach vacation with your family...this is the place. We tracked down all the way from Ohio and were not disappointed. The owners are extremely easy to work with; whether it be text or email responses are immediate. The house is located in a private drive and less than 20 yards from the sand. The house comes fully equipped with everything you would need for the beach. My 4 and 3 year old had more than enough toys on the beach to play with and even chairs/umbrellas to relax in. The beach is majestic and the neighbors always smiled and waved at us. Very quiet area with a grocery store and local food venues within walking distance. I would highly recommend the Dog Hut!!! Overall this wad an amazing family vacation on the beach and we would 100% stay again.

Lovely quiet well kept house with quick access to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We recently had the opportunity to spend 5 days at this lovely house on the beach. We had a quiet relaxing stay and the beach was just a few hundred feet from the door. It was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of the condos and tourist areas. There is a grocery store and multiple restaurants right down the road which was perfect for our needs. This house is well taken care of, and the garage is fully stocked with beach accessories for all to enjoy. We recommend this beach house and would stay here again.

Great Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property was all we were looking for in a vacation home. The view of the ocean was perfect, all the beach amenities we wanted to use they had, with a great location for local restaurants. Also the owners were easy to communicate with and would respond quickly to all our questions. As soon as we walked in we knew we selected the best house in the area for our trip. It was clean and the kids loved the candy machine in the kitchen. The garage had anything and everything needed for playing or relaxing on the beach. Having the ability to use beach chairs, toys, and bogie boards was a highlight for us. A one minute walk to the beach made lunch time a breeze since we could walk up, make lunch and be back to the beach within an hour. Where you walk out to on the beach was nice and quiet so we could spread out and not worry about being in someone’s way. The location was easy to get to all the local top restaurants we found on trip advisor. We found the House of Doughnuts and a nice Italian restaurant within walking distance.

Great house with easy beach access.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our family of 4. 2 adults and 2 small kids. The house is stocked so well with everything you could possibly need for a trip. The beach is beautiful, clean, and family friendly. The location is great to awesome restaurants and activities. I highly recommend staying here. The only thing I would recommend are new mattresses on the beds.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $75
Damage Deposit $500

Summer "Weekday" Rentals are from 6pm on Sunday through 2pm on Friday. That's five nights for the discounted rate of $550 (that's less expensive than a hotel).

Note that it's absolutely FREE to pay with an eCheck, but VRBO will charge a 2.9% "Convenience Fee" if you pay with a credit card (and then again when they refund your Security Deposit!). That's a charge I'll have to pass-on to you. You're MUCH better off paying with a check!

In case you're not convinced, if you pay your $500 Security Deposit with a credit card, you will only get back $471.43 even if I refund the deposit in full. I encourage all of our renters to save themselves the money as this is an unnecessary expense. No need to make the banks any richer :-)

Owner's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
