I found this house while searching for the perfect beach 25 years ago with my girlfriend who now is my wife ( Leslie) 'Ebb Tide' was built in 1967 by a very wealthy lady from Chattanooga who just wanted peace and quiet and escape from her life- It's our home now, we occasional spend a lot of time traveling and away so now after 24 years of ownership we are opening it up just a little. We have two small children ( 9&10), we're surfers so all our surfing / paddling lives are imprinted all over the house. It's a very romantic house and as the former owner told me when I purchased it - it comes alive after midnight!@! It's a cool house one of kind.

Michael OShaughnessy purchased this chalet in 1990

Ponce Inlet is Florida best kept secret even if its started to be developed in the late 90's. There's a reason racing was started here, the beaches are very very wide and non driving. Ponce Inlet is a sweet little town, last one leaving New Symrna Beach please turn off the lights- we are a no drive beach, meaning no cars and pure relaxation Seriously Once you go to Ponce Inlet you'l be back- ' where the ocean meets the river' sweet little town, theres a cool old light house, a turtle hospital, neat inlet you can walk out on, no drive beachs, great surf . Stop off at my ice cream shop Ho daddy O's or attend my surf and sport camp during the summer months.

quiet, quiet, quiet , surf , surf , surf, sleep , sleep , sleep there's stuff to do around town but who wants to leave?? Light House is alwsy fun, Turtle Hospital at Inlet is cool, walking the Inlet is alwsy our fav- sun sets on river w/a fish sandwich and beer can't be beat- Must stop and see Ho Daddy O's SURF CREAM!!! that's my shop. Walk to Ponce Preserve from my house, very very cool! This is a perfect old style Florida beach house and experience. The sport of paddle boarding started right out in back of my house in the mid 90's- look it up in wikipededia

THE REAL DEAL

  • 5 of 5
So, you know when you take your kids to Disney and you walk into, oh let's say: "Hang Ten's Surf Shack Adventure"? It's like stepping back in time to hidden little beach chalet with that Disney flair. Every detail has been meticulously thought out to create a sense of wonder, nostalgia and romance with the beach. Except it's all fake.

Well if such a Disney adventure existed it would be based on Ebb Tide. But it wouldn't be the same, because try as you may you can't replicate real magic.

Ebb Tide reminds me of the kind of Florida beach houses my family would rent when I was a kid (almost 50 years ago). Those places are long gone - but Ebb Tide remains. You can read other reviews if you want details-yes there is something to look at in every nook within the house and without - yes the path wandering through the dunes to the beach is like something from a painting - yes the antique surfboards are super cool. But the details matter less than the sum of the parts.

I'll conclude with this: If you want marble-floored bathrooms and stainless steel appliances go to Miami. If you want the real Florida beach experience then head to Ponce Inlet and step foot inside Ebb Tide. It will take you back and once there you won't want to return to the present.

INDESCRIBABLE

I fell in love with EBB TIDE the minute we drove up! The charm and personality is unmatched..I felt right at home immediately, and have never been so comfortable away from home. It is the first vacation I have ever been on that I didn't want to sightsee or even leave for dinner. I was there with a friend and her sister and we ate breakfast and lunch on the deck almost everyday. Watching the sunrise from the deck is breathtaking.. Michael made us feel very welcome and if we had any questions, he was always available to answer them. Everything about Ebb Tide exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to go back with my sisters in 2014...I haven't been able to stop talking about the decor and the many different pictures and articles throughout the home. Thank You Michael for making us feel so welcome......

A GREAT FIND!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a lot of time researching a place to stay for our honeymoon. We kept coming back to Ebb Tide, and we are so glad we did. We don’t think our stay could have been any better. The house was clean and had everything one needs to feel at home (which it did). There is so much to see, that we were noticing new things every day. We were lucky enough to be able to stay for 10 days, and wished we could have stayed for more. It was very relaxing, which is exactly what we were looking for. The view to the beach was fantastic. We really enjoyed having coffee every morning while sitting on the deck looking out to the ocean. Communication with the owner before and during our stay was excellent. We will definitely be returning!

EBB TIDE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I was only able to stay one night at Ebb Tide with two girlfriends. The friend renting the house had the fortunate opportunity to stay all week. What an absolutely marvellous, funky, magical place! The view is incredible. We spent the majority of our time sitting on the deck and just relaxing. One could spend hours exploring the house. There are hidden treasures scattered throughout, some of which just make you laugh out loud. Hopefully, I will be able to share the house with my husband in the near future. He grew up surfing the area and would be fascinated by all of the memorabilia. Thank you for sharing this special place.
