Overview

Ormond-by-the-Sea Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Our renovated jewel of a cottage 10 minutes walk to the beach and 10 minutes walk to the Halifax River. We have styled it in Mid Century Modern/50s. We purchased it in May 08 and we feel we can share it with other vacationers now the renovations have been completed within the house.

The house has 2 bedrooms the first one containing a queen size bed, the other containing two twin beds. We also have a sleeper sofa in the living room.

There are flat screen HD TVs in both bedrooms and the living room - the ones in the living room and the main bedroom have built in DVDs. Bring your laptop and connect to our internet with our network cable or with our password protected wi-fi service.

The house also has a secure garage to store your car or bike. The garage is a single garage but we have a driveway too.

The house is surrounded by a six foot privacy fence - nice when you come home from the beach and you can kick off your flip flops and have a few cocktails in the privacy of your back garden.

Ormond Shopping Mall is very close by with Publix supermarket, take away Chinese and Pizza restaurants etc. A new Grill restaurant has recently opened at the end of the street.

An hour and a half to Orlando. 10 mins to Daytona Beach. An hour to St Augustine.

This is the place for you if you want a quiet relaxing holiday/vacation with home from home conveniences.

WE ASK THAT YOU DO NOT SMOKE IN THE HOUSE. NO PETS PLEASE.

About Diana Knight

We are a couple in our forties who live in the UK (South East England) but often visit our little house in Ormond by the Sea. We enjoy going to yard sales and thrift shops to find items for our Mid Mod business. We love Florida and hope to retire there someday.

We have a local property manager in Daytona Beach who is also a dear friend. Any issues will be resolved asap and they want to ensure that you will have the best time of your life at our house.

Diana Knight purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Diana Knight chose Ormond-by-the-Sea

We bought this property as we wanted something that was old America close to Orlando but not too close, and close to the ocean.

Ormond By The Sea is a lovely town with lovely houses and a fantastic beach. It is just up the road from Daytona Beach and down the road from St Augustine. We love it here and hope you will love it too.

What makes this bungalow unique

Fully equipped kitchen with stove/oven and range/hob, microwave, dishwasher, laundry room containing washer/dryer, crockery setting for 6, utensils, toaster, coffee maker, sandwich toaster, and drinks trolley with cocktail shaker and assorted cocktail glasses - just provide your own alcohol.

Cable TV with most channels (flat screen HD TV with inbuilt DVD and a DVD collection) and internet with ethernet cable and wi-fi (password protected) but bring your own laptop/ipad.

Flat screen HD TV in both bedrooms has basic cable but this are about 100 channels so plenty to watch. The TV in the main bedroom has a built in DVD too.

We also have an iPod speaker station and an authentic 1950s Magnavox record player along with lots of LPs to play on it.

We have a bookcase of books and games such as scrabble, cards, jenga and some awful Donald Trump game ;-)

We have a Florida Room, We have beach supplies (boogie boards,chairs and beach brollys). We supply towels and linens.

We also have two bicycles for your use.

We have a lovely patio set and a barbeque grill for use in our lovely garden (within a 6ft privacy fence).

We are saving up for a pool but the ocean is 10 minutes walk away.

Wonderful stay! Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5
The house was very clean and very appealing. The property managers, Pat and Steve were very accommodating with regards to when we were able to arrive to check in. They were all around wonderful. Diana was very nice and refunded our deposit the morning after we left which was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this place to stay and would absolutely come back to stay again!

Owner's Response: Really glad you enjoyed your stay. I am so glad that you pointed out that our Property Managers go above and beyond their normal duties. It is a lovely area to stay in and so close to lots of places. We try and accommodate differing arrivals and that makes a difference as we can't always predict the traffic or public transport. Hope to see you again :-)

slightly dissapointed from the Heberts

  • 3 of 5
The house was clean but bare from paper products. especially no 2nd toilet paper.
The room where the washer and dryer was; was dirty. windows missing or cracked. broken chair. this concerned me for I had my two young grandchildren with me.
The up keep seemed to be bare bones and not done on a regular basic.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review which came as a surprise as we did not receive any communication from you during the time of your stay. Patti and Steve, our property managers, have confirmed that the only communication they received from you was that you loved the house and where could you go fishing.
Now that I know that there were a few issues I must apologise for the lack of toilet rolls. There were plenty in the utilities cupboard so I will ensure that more are available for future renters.
With regard to the Laundry Room, this is housed in a separate closet in the Florida Room. The Florida Room is nearly sixty years old now and does look a bit quaint and rustic but does not form part of the main living area. I will ensure that the laundry room is spic and span for future renters but we are unable to update the old Jalousie windows at this present time. It is something that is on our list though.
I do however disagree with your point regarding the upkeep of the house - we are there twice a year and the last time we were there in May we put new lockable storm doors back and front, paintwork was updated, guttering updated and items were replaced when they showed wear. Maybe our mid-century style did not gel with what you wanted in a holiday home. We are back again at the end of October so we will go in with fresh eyes to see if there is anything that requires updating.
I was unaware that a chair was broken - I will ask our Property Manager to check all the chairs to ensure they are all ok for future renters.
I hope that these issues did not ruin your holiday.

Owner's Response: Dear Marty and Jennie. Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. And thank you for your lovely comments. You were the perfect house guests and enjoyed the house as it was meant to be enjoyed. Patti and Steve are wonderful property managers taking you round the house to make sure you know where everything is. I know you wanted to book again next year but that time has proved very popular and is already booked but you would be most welcome to come back and stay at any other time and we will keep you informed for 2016 - thanks again. Diana and Andy.

My fiance and I had a wonderful stay at this great bungalow! This place has a lot of character and charm, including lots of 50s and 60s era memorabilia. We especially loved the old turntable and collection of classic rock and soul records. Very clean and cozy, in a quiet neighborhood, with a nicely-sized backyard and screened-in porch for lounging. The property managers were also extremely responsive and easy to reach.

The house is located within an extremely short stroll to the beach and within a 10-15 minute drive of some beautiful scenic state parks, including Tomoka State Park and Bulow Creek State Park, complete with opportunities for hiking, biking, kayaking, and canoeing (low-cost equipment rentals available onsite). A great spot for outdoor adventuring on a budget! If you plan on eating in, there is a Publix and Family Dollar in short walking distance for picking up groceries an other essentials. If you prefer to eat out, there are several small-town gems nearby. Our favorite was Hull's Seafood Market and Restaurant - go there for the freshest fish, large portions, and the best prices!

If you are looking for a place that is not overly "touristy," but still within short driving distance of the tourist spots, look no further!

Owner's Response: Thank you Allison for such a lovely first review. We had our house advertised on another site before this one so we appreciate a lovely first review for this website.

Our Property Managers said that you were the perfect renters and left the house spotless :-)

I am so glad you loved our quirky style of house. I am not into clutter and think the 50s/60s vibe looks particularly cute for this area of America as Daytona appreciates old style Americana.

We would be honoured to have you stay at the house at any time and we are glad you had such a great time. Thanks also for taking the time to give a little trip report so that other renters may be able to pinch some of your ideas. We might even try the canoes ourselves when we return next month.
