About Omar & Lisa

I was born in California and at the age of 12 I moved with my parents and two younger siblings to Georgia where I finished high school and Jr. college. I eventually attended Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fl, during which time I became the proud home owner of this property. I worked hard on remodeling it while going to school. Little by little it was transformed into the place we love today. I am now a medical sales professional working long hours at several hospitals here in Texas. My wife proudly home schools our 3 boys, and together we try hard to do our very best as parents. I thank God every day for my family and the countless blessings that have come our way over the years.

Omar & Lisa purchased this house in 2002

Why Omar & Lisa chose Willow Run

This home is where my wife and I started our lives together and so it has a very special place in our hearts. It has a real peaceful feel to it, and we both love the ocean, especially the beaches in South Daytona. Our children now love the trips to the beach house, and they can't wait to go again every year. For these reasons it was impossible for us to ever think about selling this home. So instead we decided to come up with a way for us to still be able to enjoy our times at the beach house while offering this experience to other families to enjoy. So we as a family wish you all a wonderful time at the beach house. I am confident that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Thank you and happy travels.

What makes this house unique

The location of this home made perfect sense for our new family. It is safe and away from heavy traffic. Port Orange is a quiet little town that has a great community that really looks out for each other. We always felt safe around town with the kids, and there was always some family friendly events going on to keep us entertained. For travelers interested in the fast paced Daytona Beach experience, its the perfect location to retreat back to after the day is over to safely rest your head and recharge for the next day. For the beach goer, its 4.8 miles to the cleanest and most kid friendly part of the of the beach. Here you can load up the kids and drive right onto the beach itself to find a nice spot to set up camp for the day. Having the vehicle right there is very convenient. Just bring everything your heart desires to the beach with no worries about how to carry it all. Its all right there in the car next to you: cooler full of sandwiches, chairs, umbrella, camera equipment, towels, kids toys, shovels, kites, boogie boards, surf boards, snorkeling equipment, etc.

Dont forget the SUN SCREEN!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed at this great location. The house was very nice, and well kept. There was an issue with the beds in two of the three bedrooms an the owner did everything he could to rectify the issue while we were there. We were in Daytona for the annual Turkey Rod Run at the speedway. The location of the home was great as we didn't have to deal with any of the traffic on International Speedway BLVD. on Sunday we spent some time at the beach which was only about 10-15 minutes away. Hope to book for next year real soon.

Beach was were we visited the most and hope we can go back again soon! House had great internet and many,many TV stations to watch during our relaxation time at the house. We cooked plenty of meals in the house kitchen and even had a real good Barbeque out on patio to cook excellent steak entrees for all the family. Thank you for letting us stay and hope to rent again asap!!!

Perfect location and spacious house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect fit for us. Omar & Lisa are wonderful to work with, they're very understanding and want to always ensure that you will have the best stay possible. If we ever ran into any trouble or questions about the house, they were only a phone call away. The beach and strip was about a 10 minute drive so it was nice to get away from the noise at night. The house had enough space for our large 10 person group. We overall had a fantastic experience with the house, definitely recommend to large groups traveling to the area!

Perfect House for a Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were Dance Moms, staying for a National Competition. This house was great for the girls as well as the parents. We had plenty of space to spread out and ample amount of household resources(towels, sheets, dishes, cookware and cleaning supplies). Omar, home owner, was a great host and very accommodating. He continued to check on us throughout the stay to make sure we were comfortable. The house is in a perfect location to be close enough to the action, yet far away enough to have a peaceful rest. Great neighborhood. We will definitely be back!

On April 26, 1867, the community of Port Orange was established on the banks of the Halifax River. Now some 146 years later, Port Orange is a community of 56,067 people who call this place home.

Planned by choice, not by chance, Port Orange blends beauty and opportunity within its 28 square miles. From its tree-lined streets to its parks, this community is the pride of Volusia County.

This family, which we call Port Orange, is made up of some 150 distinct 'neighborhoods'. They are the core of this community, making it a great place in which to live, learn, work, and play. Because of the City's highly regarded development approach, an investment in Port Orange is a secure investment. And so today, as we celebrate over 135 years as a community, we are proud to call Port Orange 'our home'.

Port Orange is a city in Volusia County, Florida, United States. The city's estimated population was 56,529 in 2011. The city is part of the Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area; the metropolitan area's population in 2010 was 494,593. Port Orange is a principal city in the Fun Coast region of the state of Florida.

Port Orange was settled by John Milton Hawks who brought freed blacks to work at his sawmill after the U.S. Civil War. Esther Hawks established an integrated school in the area. The colony struggled soon after its creation and most colonists left. The area that became known as Freemanville is a legacy of the settlers that held on in the area.


Port Orange is located at 29°7′8″N 81°0′10″W (29.118970, -81.002906)[5]. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 28.7 square miles (74.3 km2). 26.6 square miles (69.0 km2) of it is land and 2.0 square miles (5.3 km2) of it (7.09%) is water.[6]


As of the census of 2010, there were 56,048 people, 24,841 households, and 15,44 families residing in the city. The population density was 2,102.3 per square mile . There were 27,972 housing units at an average density of 1,049.2 per square mile (329.7/km²). The racial makeup of the city was 91.3% White, 3.3% African American, 0.3% Native American, 2.2% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 1.0% from other races, and 1.8% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.5% of the population.

The median income for a household in the city was $46,572.


Recent studies show the workforce to be educated, productive and competitive, with 10 percent under-employed. Seven colleges and universities and the Advanced Technology Center support business needs with career advancement, workforce development and research.

Education, health care and government are the area’s largest employment sectors.

One of the larger businesses in Port Orange is Thompson Pump and Manufacturing. The city has started courting high-tech companies as well, prompting the simulation training defense contractor, Raydon Corporation, to move it's headquarters and all operations there in 2010.

We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

Happy travels!
