About Mary Ann Silvey

A native of Western NC, I grew up in Asheville and spent summers in Lake Lure where my parents built a summer home, which became the family hideaway for relaxation and recreation. Eventually the Lake Lure hideaway became my year-round home. In 1999,my time share week in Ormond Beach became my new hideaway which I enjoyed so much that I never exchanged for another location.

After raising four children and spending 33 years as a school teacher and counselor, I retired, but spent another 7 years working in schools part-time and currently serving as a town commissioner in Lake Lure.

In 2010 I married my husband, Bill who is retired from US Air Force and US Postal Service. Together we enjoy working in crafts and community activities. Bill is a woodworker who specializes in converting obsolete and antique post office box doors into coin banks and handgun safes. I create unique hand-braided wool rugs and demonstrate at historic landmarks and the Village of Yesteryear at the NC State Fair. We enjoy escapes to Ormond Beach, and have furnished the cottage to provide a restful reflection of our enjoyment of seascapes and tropical plants. We personally planted and maintain palms, ornamentals, and tropical plants, beginning with a habiscus which was a Mother's Day gift and made the trip from NC in 2009! The cottage is our current hideaway, where we look forward to spending more time soon and sharing with family, friends, and guests who will enjoy and find comfort and renewal.

Mary Ann Silvey purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Mary Ann Silvey chose Ormond-by-the-Sea

For three years I looked at condos and houses for a place where I could spend more time in Florida during my retirement years. Ormond was my choice because the climate is comfortable year-round. Cold days are rare in winter, and the ocean breeze provides relief from Summer's heat. Since my family included 'Diva', a sweet, loving Doberman Pinccher, the cottage had room, inside and out to provide privacy and allow pets to be included. The fenced back yard was a definite plus for us. We have cultivated flowering jasmine vines which have covered the fence, creating privacy for outdoor living, dining and sunning. The garage and storage shed provide ample storage for lawn furniture, bicycles, beach gear, utility wagon and even the fully decorated Christmas tree.

What makes this cottage unique

2015 addition: New HP printer.

2014 updates: Full service digital cable TV service, flat screen HDTV, unlimited cable internet, new roof, digital conrol for irrigation system with battery backup.

Save your drinking water money! City water passes though our purification system and results in pure, soft water throughout the cottage. Plumbing and hot water system were replaced in 2010.

A well provides irrigation for the lawn and gardens automatically. A timer controls the sprinkler system after dark, while you sleep.

Located between Flagler and Daytona Beaches, surrounded by state parks & recreation areas on the Halifax River and a short drive to ocean piers, the cottage is only a short walk to the quiet, non-commercial beach. Restaurants, shopping, theaters,art museum, library and family entertainment or nite spots are conveniently located a short drive away.

Historic St. Augustine, shopping outlets, Ponce Lighthouse, Casino Cruises, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona Speedway are nearby attractions. Drive an hour

southwest of Daytona on I-4 to Orlando or Sanford Airports and central Florida attractions, including Disney, Seaworld, Universal Studios, LeggoLand and more. Jacksonville airport is 1 1/2 hours North on I-95.

this cottage is as cozy as it looks!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation weeks, and look forward to our next visit. The cottage is located in a quiet neighbourhood, very close to the inter coastal waterway and just a pleasant stroll to the beach at the other end of the street. If preferred you can drive to the beach, and park right there.

The location is perfect, close but not too close to the noise and hustle bustle of Daytona. With open stretches of sandy beach, and just a scattered number of beach blankets you really feel like you are "on vacation."

We found the property to be very clean and well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful vacation. Furniture is clean and comfortable. The beds are in excellent condition and conducive to a great nights sleep.

We would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Great location & the right house for us

  • 4 of 5

This is a good value for the money. Beds & linens were good, kitchen well equipped and yard is lovely. The owner is more than willing to do above and beyond what is needed. We had trouble with the refrigerator and she had a service man at the house that day. She upgraded the cable package & wifi. Bike week is a busy time in Daytona and surrounding area and out in Ormand Shores we hardly noticed. Volusia County beaches are forbidden for dogs but a dog park and Flagler beaches are close by.

Cleaning products such as dishwasher, laundry etc is abundant [it is mostly Amway which worked well]. We left food and non-perishables in the unit for the next folks including beer & wine. Enjoy!!

All in all a pleasant stay. My husband fished off the beach which is about a 7 minute walk, everyday. Fishing was so so but he had fun & we ate all the whiting he caught.

GREAT place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a vaca home. This was an extremely positive experience for us!!! The home is quaint, cozy, and comfortable, inside and outside! Our dog enjoyed the fenced in back yard as well. The Atlantic Ocean beach is only a ten minute walk!! Or ride the bikes provided, to enjoy the long stretch of sidewalk just on the other side of the road from the ocean! The neighbors and neighborhood are very friendly and helpful. There are many good places to eat nearby, if eating out is your thing. If not, the kitchen is fully stocked with any utensils you may need to prepare your own meals. In addition to the gas grill outside on the lovely secluded and private patio. Daytona is only 15 minutes away with much to see and do there! St. Augustine is less than an hour away, which is a must see and do....but it takes more than one day to really see everything. Plan accordingly for that visit!! The owner of this great hide away home is the best!! She is extremely accommodating, cordial, friendly, and helpful. You won't find a better person to deal with!! She takes pride in her home and we totally understand why they love it there so much. We felt it was surely a "home away from home". We highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed!!

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The location is excellent! This cottage is close to the beach, river, stores, and main street Daytona! If you are looking for luxury, then you might not like this house....but, if you are looking for a nice, modest, clean place to call home for a few days, then this is the place for you. It has a nice fenced back yard and a beautifully landscaped front yard. The back yard is nicely landscaped also with all kinds of trees and flowers. It is located in a very nice, quiet neighborhood. The owners are fantastic and were easy to get in touch with if we had any questions.
