Private fishing dock for Rivershore Drive: We discovered our own private fishing pier just at the end of our street right off of John Andersen Drive. This pier is just for owners and rentors who are on Oceanshore Dr. or Rivershore Dr. We took a short 15 min,. walk with our fishing rods and tackle boxes and sat one evening and just fished. What a wonderful discovery we made that evening and we even caught our own dinner that eve. It was so pleasant to do just right before it got dark, just sitting and lounging on the pier that is specifically for our 2 streets only. We could bring the dog, our sandchairs and radio and enjoy some quiet music while having such a great time watching the fish jump and trying to get away from the bait. It is an absolute blast!! We have now sent down to rentors that have also enjoyed this! Just walk to the end of our street and cross John Andersen and within a few feet you are right there at the private pier for these 2 streets! So fishermen, GO and enjoy! We sure did!!

About Beth or Sonny
My husband Sonny & I live in PA where we own and operate a beef cattle operation and farm around 150 acres with one another partner,Bob. We both love the house in Fla. but also enjoy antiquities, currently presiding on a farm that houses a barn over 200 yr. old. We both grew up in this area. We have been married for 42 yr. and have one daughter, Becky and 3 grandchildren, Dillan, 21, Amber 17 and Brandon 6. The Grandkids especially enjoy the beach and the close proximity, everything in walking distance. . Beth is an PA licensed RN and works as a substitute school nurse in a local school district and also serves as VP on the Traders Inn Beach Club and a second generation director replacing her Mom who also served on this board many years ago. Sonny is a large equipment operator working for a paving company. We purchased the home from my Mom, Nettie, in 2007 who loved her house dearly and the Florida East coast.That is why the house is called 'Netties Nautical Nook' we just had to name the house after my Mom. We have done most renovations to this house ourselves since my husband is also an apprenticed carpenter, including the pergo flooring, the new roof and new hurricane windows and much more while leaving many of Mom's touches to the house which is still so much a part of this house. So many of our Bike Wk. guys tell us there is TOO much pink in the house, but I have to remind them, that was Mom's favorite color and we probably will not change it. It just continues to remind me of her and so I try to leave in many of her little touches. You will also love the history of Ormond Beach which is the area where the Big Race actually began. Take time to visit Rockefellers home and enjoy the history of Ormond Beach. We know you will love this beach house with its many personal touches and SUCH close proximity to the beach!
Beth or Sonny purchased this house in 2007
Why Beth or Sonny chose Ormond-by-the-Sea
This was my Moms home as I may have mentioned. My Mom and I spent many hours just walking the beach for a 3 mile, trek along the beaches of Ormond by the Sea, Fl. sometimes walking all the way to Rte. 40, about 3 miles and totally loving it. We would have many meaningful conversations while walking and Mom would say how she never felt closer to her God while walking here in his beauty he provides for us. Some of the antiquities my Mom loved remain in the house, like her shadow box which at one time housed her huge collection of tiny tea cups. My daughter and her children now have come to love this property also, vacationing every Summer with friends and it becomes difficult especially when I tell Amber, age 16 that we are leaving for the Fla. house and she says,'But Grandmom I am still in school and I can't go right now.' She could have a suitcase packed in 15 min. if this time would allow her. We love the little areas around the house, Alfies restaurant, the Donut Shoppe, Heffers 2 Cafe, which is a brand new Cafe, scrumptious food, and also Stavros, which is know for its fantastic Greek Salads. My husband Sonny loves that there is a great fishing spot at the end of the street and great fishing with his buddies,Tommy & Kent on the boat at Highbridge. They love it that the bait and tackle shop is just up the street with fresh bait but also a warm cup of coffee first thing in the morning.
What makes this house unique
I have loved this house ever since my parents bought it in the late 70's. There are so many quaint touches in the house and I have left many things that remind me of my Mom and Dad. Right outside the front door is an angel that I will always leave there. My Mom truly believed that her angel and many of her prayers saved her from the horrific hurricanes early 2004. Particularly in the kitchen area we have a fantastic picture of Mom know as 'Nettie'to everyone around Ormond and 'Lefty' as many people knew him! We purchased the house in 2008 and added many of our personal touches to the property! New pergo flooring which of course is great with sand coming into the house, Just recently it was my vision to add that hot/cold running shower which I totallly adore! I always told my husband, Sonny, I looked at the house and wanted many special touches, as you will see many beach pictures on each wall of the house! As many of my past rentors would tell you, I have a fondness for lighthouses which you will see throughout the house at many locations! In 2011 my husband and I totally redid the Fla. room so it could be insulated, now it is toasty warm on cool Fla. mornings and keeps cool with a brand new A/C unit we just added in 2012. It is a great room for watching TV on the large screen or just snooze on the relaxing futon. Many of the children who have come to the house have claimed this as their room since the futon is SO comfortable and they have easy access to the lg. screen TV, the kitchen and the fenced backyard. Fencing in the backyard for our little 'Daisy the Dog' was essential and many have commented how much they enjoy the outside furnishings and the privacy of the backyard and the recent gas grille. Perfect when you come back from fishing to just cook it on the grille. Nothing better than fresh fish!
