  • Bungalow880 sqft
  • Bedrooms2
  • Sleeps5
  • Bathrooms1
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay30 nights

Beach Bungalow has essentials, unwind with the ocean, blue sky and sunshine.

Enjoy our tidy and relaxed seaside bungalow in a quiet neighborhood.

Walk to food, shopping, beach parks with bathrooms, showers and pavilions.

River on the west, ocean on the east sides of the peninsula.

Watch the sun and moon rise over the ocean and soak up the sun.

Enjoy a day trip to Cape Canaveral and Historic St. Augustine.

Bedroom 1 with Queen Bed, Bedroom 2 with 2 twins. Computer work station with daybed in the Florida room. Washer and dryer and outdoor shower.

The best thing about our bungalow is that you can walk to the guarded beach parks with restrooms, and showers and long walks in the sand, wading in the warm, salty Atlantic ocean. There are turtle nests identified and protected by the "Turtle Patrol", beautiful birds, whale watching, dolphins, the occasional stingray or shark. The daily gifts from the ocean are there to discover. It is a friendly environment with, shopping, groceries and restaurants to walk or bike to.

If you want boardwalk, movies and action, it is just 8 miles south to Daytona's Ocean Walk where there are free concerts and amusements. Also, Historic St. Augustine, the most ancient city in the USA is just 45 miles north, a beautiful drive up A1A along the ocean, is a fantastic day trip I highly recommend. Start out early to enjoy this amazing place, especially St George Street, and be back home in time for a beach walk or lounge to unwind. A drive North on John Anderson Blvd., which is on the west side of the peninsula, takes you to wild Florida landscapes with beautiful wildlife sanctuaries then ends up in Flagler Beach a charming neighborhood north of North Peninsula and Gamble Rogers State Parks.

Internet service is provided by AT&T and we conduct performance evaluations on speed when we are there. However, occasional lag may occur that is out of our control. Local Antenna TV is available. You can stream from your computer to the TV through HDMI. If you like to watch a lot of television, the Love Shack is not for you.

About Teresa Martin

Artist, Graphic Designer, Yoga Instructor and An Oracle Database Administrator. My husband and I bought our bungalow after researching a healthy place to live and looked all along the Atlantic coast till we found this neighborhood. Our exploring brought us here several times and we felt like we were home. So this is now our second home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Teresa Martin purchased this Bungalow in 2013

Why Teresa Martin chose Ormond Beach

The best thing about our bungalow is that you can walk to the guarded beach parks with restrooms, and showers and long walks in the sand, wading in the warm, salty Atlantic ocean. There are turtle nests identified and protected by the "Turtle Patrol", beautiful birds, whale watching, dolphins, the occasional stingray or shark. The daily gifts from the ocean are there to discover. It is a friendly environment with, shopping, groceries and restaurants to walk or bike to.

                                                                • The Love Shack Beach house is a nice quiet get away. Perfect for couples and families. Walking to the beach, shopping, dining and nature makes it fun and keeps you fit. It is a short drive to entertainment in Daytona and Flagler Beach. Day trips are easy from here to St. Augustine and Space Coast. Florida State Parks and guarded beach-side parks are abundant and nearby. Surf fishing is great here! You can also kayak in the ocean or on the Halifax river with many access points along John Anderson on the west side of our peninsula. Bicycling is super fun. Head to the beach and ride on the hard surf at low tide. The homes are gorgeous and the ocean breeze is amazing as you head southward on the beach or A1A to get a beach-side breakfast or lunch at the Beach Bucket, just 5 miles south! Wild life in Florida is great! Beautiful birds, fish, turtles, lizards, and manatees. History at the speedway and ocean walk in Daytona is interesting and the Casements museum is right in the neighborhood.

Not having at least basic cable or satellite is one reason not to return to your rental property along with spotty internet.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  We provide available internet service from AT&T and test the performance when we are there. As for TV service, most of our guests are short term and busy in and out, we will consider better television for our long term guests. Hope you had a nice stay and enjoyed your visit.

                                                                  Not what we had in mind as far as "relaxation"

                                                                  Alexandra S.

                                                                  The house was as shown in pictures, beautiful! But one, we never met the owner of the home nor the manger like stated the whole vacation. The kitchen sink leaked because the pipes underneath were loose, a mess. Went to flush the toilet and the water came up through the tub as well as the sides of the toilet, huge nasty mess. The beds were absolutely unbearable, not comfortable at all. We ended up spending the last couple days of our vacation in a hotel in Fort Lauderdale. I then Text the owner as we were leaving and told her the problems we had, and got not response. Besides the looks of the house, we were not satisfied.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Unfortunate plumbing issues have been addressed and repaired. I was unaware of the extent until I contacted the guests about their departure. The one bathroom accommodates folks but the gray water drains slow. Please review the house rules as the plumbing quarks are outlined at this bungalow. We try to make an effort to give guests privacy. My manager lives door and she will introduce herself when she gets a chance while guests are outside. As a rule we will not intrude by arriving at the door.

                                                                  Clean with most of the amenities you'd need.

                                                                  Andrew C.

                                                                  My biggest thing is a clean place to stay. This place was nice and clean and I didn't have to worry about sleeping in someone else's filth. It also had most of the things you'd need while staying at a home on vacation. The only negative I can give is that the Internet to use to stream doesn't get the job done. I discovered it's actually dsl and after about 5 minutes of streaming it does not provide the bandwidth needed. Normally it wouldn't matter but at night with a 2 year old that wants to watch zootopia over and over it can make things difficult. I upgraded my Verizon plan to unlimited for the stay and used my phone as a Hotspot instead. For most people this wouldn't even be an issue. Overall a great place to stay being close to the beach. Also it's a very quiet neighborhood which is always a plus to me. I'll look to rent this place when we're in Florida next time.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Glad you had a nice stay with your family Andrew.

                                                                  At the moment the net speed test shows it is running at 15.9 Mbps. Don't know why it was running slow unless there was a service interruption which is possible. We are available to trouble shoot if you have internet issues.

                                                                  Tom and I both use internet for work while we are there and want to know when there are any net issues.

                                                                  Thanks for staying! You were Great!

                                                                  Nice location, very convenient, a good value.

                                                                  Cute home on quiet street, modestly furnished, so might not be everyone's taste, but it met our needs and was as advertised. 5 minute walk to ocean. Enjoyed using the gas grill and having use of 2 bicycles, beach chairs and toys. It was very clean. Kitchen had the basics. Dog friendly, although not a fully fenced yard. There was a great dog park about a mile away. Dogs are not allowed on Ormond Beaches or Daytona, but could go to Flagler Beach about 10-15 minutes away. Owner and her managers were very responsive.

                                                                  Great location

                                                                  Stephanie W.Howell, MI

                                                                  Quaint home with everything you need. It's older and could use updating but it was clean and Teresa was very accommodating. We ended up arriving at 2 am and she made sure the lights were on for our arrival and let us check in early. The neighborhod was quiet and it was only a 5 minute walk to the ocean. My only real complaint was the queen bed in the master was extremely uncomfortable. My adult kids said their beds were great though. Can't beat the price on this place! Was a wonderful vacation at the Love Shack.
