About Michael OShaughnessy

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

Why Michael OShaughnessy chose Ponce Inlet

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. One of the east coasts best surf is right down at the inlet- out back isn't too bad either , especially on south swell!

What makes this chalet unique

quiet, quiet, quiet , surf , surf , surf, sleep , sleep , sleep there's stuff to do around town but who wants to leave?? Light House is always fun, Turtle Hospital at Inlet is cool, walking the Inlet is always 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 Wikipedia

Thank you for sharing this little piece of heaven...

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a glorious stay at Ebb Tide. This darling A-frame is just funky enough to delight anyone with a sense of humor while being comfortable and well appointed. It was wonderful waking up to the crashing surf, knowing it was just a couple steps out back. The beach here is amazing and much more walkable that those in other areas of Florida. We loved being able to eat on the deck as much as we enjoyed the crazy comfy beds and couches. We were blessed with great weather but also had a glass of wine while experiencing a random thundershower on the deck. Also can't say enough about Michael, the owner, who went above and beyond the call of duty in making us feel welcome. We'll be back!

Peaceful get away from the New England cold and snow

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Ebb Tide and it was just as enjoyable as the first! The view of the ocean and sunrise in the morning is fabulous!

Our favorite thing was the privacy afforded by the shrubbery surrounding most of the property and the serene beach just out back. My 11 year old son and his buddy spent most of everyday boogie boarding, body surfing and beach combing.

The Ebb Tide is very comfortable with everything you need and fun decor that catches your eye in every room!

Hoping to return without the boys for an anniversary get away!

Wonderful escape from the New England weather!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from two weeks at Ebb Tide and enjoyed our stay very much. It has a very quirky feeling and, as others have written, is very comfortable and peaceful. The first week was just my husband and I - we thoroughly enjoyed the privacy and the beautiful views. Our son, daughter-in-law and two small grandsons joined us for the second week and they had a blast as well. Although the area was experiencing unusually cold weather (37 degrees at times), it was still wonderful to sit on the couch and enjoy the view.

Serene, whimsical, comfortable - A perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to escape northern ice and snow. Ebb Tide was a perfect getaway. Everything you need (and more) is there. Communication with the owner was excellent. Owner was available if we needed anything from directions, suggestions of places to eat, what to do.. he was terrific. Excellent customer service. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Ebb Tide is not your usual rental. The decor is delightfully eclectic. Every wall tells a story. It's an absolutely charming and comfortable place to just hang out. The house is very clean and has a well-equipped kitchen. The deck off the back is serene - a perfect place to have morning coffee and enjoy the beautiful ocean scene in front of you. Location is good for day trips (Kennedy Space Center, DisneyWorld, Blue Springs State Park for manatees, historic St Augustine, etc.) We had a wonderfully relaxing retreat at Ebb Tide. Didn't want to leave and can't wait to return!

Heaven on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 was here in the Fall. Ebb Tide was like an old friend. And the walls do talk. There is memorabilia to read and view on the walls. The house tells you a sweet story of life, love and family. This house wraps you in a blanket of sand, sea and sunshine. There were plenty of beach toys and books the owner shared. The deck overlooking the dunes and ocean was our favorite place to eat and hang. We all enjoy cooking and the 'kitch' invited us in. It had everything we needed to cook and bake. If you enjoy history, the Lighthouse Museum is not but a few miles away. Bottom line, we can't wait to visit again. We miss you Ebb Tide.

AAAAAAMMMMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

The PERFECT beach house! It could not be any cuter- or comfy for our family! Everything we needed was right there. From toys/boards for the beach, everything we needed to bake or grill out, plenty of beds, etc. We didn't want to leave! It was like a house/museum in one- the walls tell a wonderful story. You won't be disappointed. Not only did my kids get to learn how to surf, build plenty of sand castles, and enjoy the sweet critters outside, we came home with shells from the beach, lovely memories, and new facts about marine life, history of the light house, etc. Oh, and my husband loved the fishing behind the house. Thanks for the great recommendations about eating out, day trips, etc. Your family was super sweet to respond to all of my questions so quickly. We couldn't imagine a more fun vacation!
