Beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

More than I hoped for. The house really is in walking distance to the beach. Beach wasn't busy at all. Felt very private. Daytona was 10 minutes away. House was clean and well stocked. Lots of beach items already provided by the landlord. Michelle was very friendly. Perfect place to take your pets. Large beautiful fenced in back yard. We had a wonderful time. Our deposit was refunded within two days. The experience was wonderful. Can't wait to come back.

Property was fine. Just a couple things prevented it from being a great experience

  • 3 of 5

The property is fine, it was accurate in its description and the owners communicated promptly and you can tell they are good people. That said.... there were two things that did put somewhat of a damper on things. ( They most likely weren't something the owner was aware of) when we got there the grass was 6-8" high. The only issue with that was the mosquitoes were really bad. As the week went on the grass got higher and they got worse. Trying to use the outside shower was not a good experience. They finally mowed on Friday afternoon before we left on Saturday morning. You could tell a difference right away. It would be great if the property was sprayed. The second thing was the people that rented before us didn't use a trash bag and there was crableg residue in the garage trash can. Smelled terrible. After we got that out and sprayed a can of deodorizer it wasn't too bad. The paper said garbage pickup was Monday's and Thursday's. The didn't pick up on Thursday but we did leave our trash sealed in bags. Again if not for the mosquitoes and the trash deal we would have been fine.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael - So sorry for the issues that you noted. We strive to keep the lawn mowed every 5 days but with the afternoon storms that we have been having, the grass is really fast growing. Other guests have commented on how thick and deep the grass is there, with a little growth it can be really deep! On the trash, it seems that there we have miss-communicated with our guests, the trash pick up is early Monday morning. Thanks for the feedback, we'll make sure to work a little harder on these items. -Bill

This limits the amount of parking and visitors to this very quiet area. Very near to the Ormond Beach Scenic Loop and trail Drive on beach is 5 miles to the south. Daytona International Speedway and International airport is 7 miles and available via Voltran Bus service.

Ormond by the Sea offers a really long sidewalk that runs along side of Route A1A, north and south, which runs for miles and miles for your run or bike ride!
