About Chris & Rhonda

My husband and I were born and raised in Florida(my husband in DeLand). We spent 8 years lovingly restoring this1905 southern jewel. We enjoy the many activities and pedestrian lifestyle thriving downtown DeLand provides.

Chris & Rhonda purchased this house in 2001

Why Chris & Rhonda chose Deland

We have many family and friends who live in Florida. We lived in this home for many years and retained it as our vacation home upon moving for a career opportunity. Wonderful that we can still enjoy the homestead, we so enjoy and share it with others

What makes this house unique

People ask what is my favorite room and I always say, 'the wrap around porch' : ) Sunset is my favorite time to have a beverage on the porch as the ocean breeze rolls inland and the moss changes different colors from the sun--- A nice beginning to the evening before walking downtown for dinner & entertainment. My children would argue it is the media room/guest suite(loft) on the 3rd floor.

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5
I was very fortunate to book this home for the week prior to my wedding. It was a wonderful experience and Rhonda was extremely helpful with answering all of my questions during and leading up to the visit. We were easily able to fit all 10 of our guests into the home with ease! It was in a great location!

Excellent rental with so much charm

  • 5 of 5
Rhonda and the property were fantastic. I will gladly rent here again in the future if the need arises! Rhonda was easy to get ahold of when needed and very helpful. The property is simply stunning and I was so excited to take my "getting ready" wedding photos here. The 3rd floor was great for relaxing with the girls and the living areas were so nice. I will say though - it is a little creepy at night! The separate ac units were a blessing in the heat and allowed you to stay cool without leaving all of the ac units on at once.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
We were in DeLand for a family wedding and this was "home base" for everyone. Everyone had to tour the entire house and they were all just as impressed as we were. The property is beautiful, well-kept, clean and filled with historic character and personal touches. We inadvertently left the top layer of the wedding cake in the fridge and they rescued it and put in the freezer for the bride to retrieve after the honeymoon. Rhonda was so helpful about everything, very gracious host! Love this place!

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you for the very kind review. We are so happy you and your guests enjoyed the house and could appreciate it's history. Thank you also for taking such great care of the house during your stay.
We absolutely want to make sure the bride and groom have their top layer of their wedding cake. Our caretaker Susan was very thoughtful to let me know it was left behind. Please have them contact her when they return from their honeymoon --- best wishes! Rhonda

EXCEPTIONAL!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great house! It was all we expected and more, exceptionally clean and comfortable. The listing description and photos reflected the love and time the owners have put into their home. There were four of us and we had so much room to spread out. Rhonda was a delight to talk with, as well as text. She was always there to answer any questions I had and always returned my calls. I felt like we became friends...my husband and one of my best friends would kid me about Rhonda being my new BFF. I would recommend this property to any friend or relative, from a small group to a large group. Seilkop Manor will easily accommodate 8 - 10 people. The top floor (3rd) is like a small apartment in itself.

We loved the historical town of DeLand...neat shops and great restaurants. Everyone in the town was so friendly. We walked each time we went into DeLand...just a couple of blocks away. It was so centrally located between Daytona and Orlando, as well as Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach. I would recommend New Smyrna Beach over Daytona...more family oriented and not nearly as crowded. We enjoyed the St. John's River boat cruise at the State Park...only a 10 - 15 minute drive from the home. We got to see lots of alligators! While we were there we also went to a Nascar Nationwide Race and a Nascar Sprint Cup Race...very convenient and nice little drive.

I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in the central Florida area. Thank you Rhonda for being so exceptional and sharing your home with us. We will be back!

We all arrived at various times at the home in Deland and loved it from the minute we arrived. 4 separate family could stay comfortably! We all left with awesome memories and wanted a home like this ourselves. The owners were terrific and only a text or call away. We will be back for sure!! I have marked this home for us to return to again and will never look for another place....thank you to Rhonda who helped us make wonderful memories.
