  • always!

    "Once again, our stay at the "Home By the Sea" was perfect! This is at least our 4th stay, and we couldn't be happier. All you need is to bring food.....everything else is there! The setting can't be beat. - With very few steps across the front lawn, you have your own private path right down the beach. The beach itself is never crowded in this area, so you feel like you have it practically to yourself. The house is always very clean and has ample dishes, cookware, linens...right down to beach towels and toys provided! Since our last stay, the hosts/owners have added a private outdoor shower with hot/cold water and an added private patio area at the side of the house. It is very suitable for anyone who may have mobility issues since the house is direct oceanfront and there are two nice patio areas from which you can directly see the beach and hear the waves! Quite frankly, the property is perfect for anyone who enjoys easy access to the beach/ocean! We can't say enough about how easy it is to work with Gordon and family. He is quick to respond to any questions and offers terrific suggestions for sight-seeing and terrific restaurants. I can honestly say that when our schedules allow a trip to the Daytona area, we arrange our visit to when the "Home By the Sea" is available! We can't imagine staying anywhere else! There is plenty of privacy given the bedrooms/bathrooms arrangement, so it is perfect for families or couples. The home is on a private drive, so there is minimal traffic, and yet it is very convenient to wonderful restaurants and a very nice supermarket. We are already planning our next our "Home By the Sea", of course! There's simply nowhere else for us. :)"

  • Best Beach ever and we were right on it!

    "This house was perfect for us and and our 3 children. Right on the beach, has a nice deep, small pool, lots for the kids to do... a pool table, fuzball and ping pong. The TV's were a little old and the movies did not play well on the DVD players but that was no big deal. The location was incredible and the kids went to surf school. Close by nice restaurants and downtown st. Augustine was a fun outing. We will definitely come back. The beach was just beautiful, waves and pristine sand. The property was clean, we had to call for a repair and they came righto out, check in and out was easy. Viola's restaurant nearby had great pizza and food."

  • Perfect getaway

    "Our group of 5 gal pals had an absolutely lovely week to celebrate 50 years of friendship. The property was well maintained, private, fully equipped, and very comfortable providing individual bedrooms for each of us. According to individual whim, we used the pool, spa, patio, and great room for nonstop talking! The Atlantic Ocean was a pleasant walk away under swaying palms leading to a quiet and gorgeous beach. Area restaurants provided excellent evening meals and we enjoyed casual breakfast and lunch noshes in the home's super kitchen and dining areas. The technology was the only bump - many tvs and whole house sound. Alas, they just did not work in a coordinated manner and even the techies who came to solve the problem left shaking their heads! My only other, minor quibble was that the plethora of posted notes and instructions sometimes gave conflicting information. We loved the property and would recommend this beautiful home to other travelers"

  • Absolutely adorable Beach Home

    "This was my first visit to Daytona Beach. It's hard to find a pet friendly place to stay that except multiple dogs. The owners ( Mark and Carey ) are the best. We originally reserved 1 fish 2 fish for 4 days. Once we arrived and pulled into the driveway and then walked through the door we contacted Mark to extend for the full week. With an email to Mark this was accomplished.The home inside and out was immaculate, location is ideal, and the amenities were more than adequate. The homes theme and decor is beach oriented , kick of your shoes and grab your flip flops. The pool was perfect. We spent most of our time by the pool. We didn't have to cook because the restaurants in the area offer every cuisine possible. Pats RiverRiverfront café, which Mark recommended for breakfast and lunch was our favorite. Home cooking at its best. We definitely will reserve 1 fish 2 fish again."
