Cozy and laid back

  • 4 of 5

My family and I came for the Easter weekend. I loved that the house was a short walk to both the beach on one side and the intercoastal on the other. In fact there was a park at the intercoastal you could fish at or launch kayaks. So we watched the sun rise on Easter at the beach and the sun set at the park. PERFECT.

Nice, quiet beach neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed quick walks to the beach and walking with our dogs around the neighborhood. The beach was uncrowded and peaceful with nice sand. The back yard is large and lovely. The kitchen was smaller then expected, with little storage space for food, but we don't cook often so it wasnt a big factor. We spent most of our time in the Florida room though all spaces are comfy. Ormond has a few good beach restaurants and we enjoyed heading North to Flagler for meals. Dogs can't walk on beach across house, but there are close options for such. We would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Paige - We love having our guests bring their pets during their stay, as they are part of the family! Not being able to take pets on the beach is disappointing to most of us but we are huge nesting area for Sea Turtles, the pets offer danger to their nests and can discourage the nesting process as well. Thanks for taking the time to post your review. We're glad that you stayed with us and we hope to see you again next year? Bill

Great location, great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great neighborhood!

One of the friendliest neighborhoods I’ve ever been in, and only a few houses away from the beach.

I stayed at Bill and Michelle’s place December through March 2017, and it was one of the best winters I’ve ever spent in Florida.

The house was neat and clean, and Bill just added a new gas grill before I arrived.

There are lots of lawn chairs and bicycles that go with this house, and lawn toys for the kids.

The backyard is awesome, large, and fenced, so if you take your pet with you when you travel,there’s lots of room to romp in this spacious, well manicured and landscaped back yard.

I did a lot of surf fishing while I was there, and “John” across the street in the aqua green house is the “go to” guy for pointers on how to fish the surf.

On my last cast, on my last day, I caught a monster size bluefish, that measured 32.5 inches, just 1.75 inches shy of the “IGFA” world record.One tip I’ll pass on is to fish the low tide, and walk to the edge of the sandbar,then cast into the deeper surf.

If you want to get informed about what’s going on in the neighborhood, then talk to “Perry” across the street, or “Gimm”, the “mayor” of Tarpon avenue.

...Both are real characters, and very friendly.

This is a very safe neighborhood,with people walking their dogs everywhere.

...Just remember to clean up after yours!

Restaurants are everywhere, up and down the strip (A1a).

I’ve been to Martin’s north on A1a, in Flagler, as well as Alfies, south on A1a just before Publix, and then “The River” on Rte. 1.

They’re all great, and this is a great place to stay.

Just one note of caution!

...Watch out for the “Schmutz” from the salt air!

Bill can tell you all about that.

Owner's Response: Brian - thanks for the great review! You'll be missed by everyone in the neighborhood! Not so sure about Perry but I do know that you became very much a part of Tarpon Ave society! We hope to see you around next year! Don't worry, the schmutz will always be around, it's a beach thing, ha! All the best! Bill

Bi-Centennial Park offers a baseball field, basketball courts, tennis courts and an outdoor half Handball Court. Just to the north is the North Peninsula State Recreation area and sea shore. 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!
