About Pam Houghton

I was born and raised in Michigan and moved to Florida in my early 20's. This home was bought as a future retirement home. I fell in love with Ormond by the Sea after an extensive search for property on both coasts. While waiting to retire, and I do hope that will be one day soon, I wanted to share my dream home by the sea with guests that could enjoy it as much as I have with my family!

Pam Houghton purchased this house in 2006

Why Pam Houghton chose Spanish Waters

Ormond by the Sea is a very quaint town, the people are so friendly and the area is very safe! I do a lot of research before purchasing property because safety is my main concern. The ocean is just 400 feet away from the house which is a plus for me because I love the sound and smell of the ocean. My dream was to one day retire and live close to the ocean. You can hear the ocean from the house and I find the sound of it very soothing. You don't have to worry about parking and the beach is private you just walk across the walkway at the end of my street. When the tide goes out, the beach sand becomes firm enough to ride your bike along the beach, this is one of my favorite activities. Just North on Ocean Shore Blvd there is a protected area, miles of protected land with no homes, or condos and that is an unusual sight for oceanfront property in Florida. There are many wonderful attractions nearby.

What makes this house unique

I have had many unique experiences during my weekend trips to the house. One weekend the Sea Turtle Patrol had to dig up a turtle nest because the turtles did not come out when expected. That was an amazing experience to see approximately 30 tiny sea turtles making their way to the ocean, it seemed like such a long journey for something so small. I have also seen Northern Right Whales off the coast and dolphins. It's a great place for a couple that loves to walk the beach for exercise or just take a romantic stroll, or even a family that just wants to leave behind all their technology to have some fun in the sun! Trust me, your kids will forget about their cell phone and online games when they see this beautiful beach. This property is located close to many Central Florida attractions like Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, Kennedy Space Center, Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, and St. Augustine. Downtown Ormond on Granada Street is very quaint and has a lot of unique stores to explore if you like to shop. Outlet malls are not far away, Orlando has some mega outlet malls with really great deals for the experienced shopper. My family has fond memories from our many long weekend stays, my youngest daughter lives about an hour away and sometimes drives over just to enjoy the amenities, mostly the beautiful beach!

We stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute. House was was clean and nice, beach it's just awesome, like 3 minutes walk and you on the beach that it was always empty, few people in distance. It's exactly what we was looking and hoping to come back next year. Pam was always responsive and helpful to answer all questions but we didn't have too much questions cuz all was good. Thanks Pam

The house was clean, tidy, and wonderfully set for my family of four. The close walk to the beach along with towels, umbrellas, and boogie boards made the days at the beach relaxing. The close proximity to the grocery store allowed us to eat at home.

I totally would recommend this house!!

This home was exactly that, a HOME. It was comfortable, beautiful, clean, and equipped with EVERYTHING anyone could need. The updated furnishing were so tasteful and the outside fenced yard was perfect for our dog Lucy.

I have rented many other homes, but this one, it was the BEST. Pam, went the extra mile to make sure our small vacation stay was perfect.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.
