Ideal for a group beach vacation
This is my third year and, as always, Nicole is a fantastic host. She is very accommodating and responsive when we have questions. She takes great care with making sure the house is well maintained and clean. Each year I’m excited to see what new upgrade she’s made to the house... this year it was a beautiful new, very comfortable sectional sofa in the main living room. The house is always equipment with loads of linens, including lots of beach towels – and if you feel inclined to do laundry there are two washers and two dryers in the laundry room. The first two years I stayed with a group of 10-12 gal pals. This year I went with my extended family (8 adults, 5 kids). Most of our group stayed in the main house while my husband and I, along with our two boys (6 yo + 3 yo), rented the attached apartment which offers a separate exterior entrance, a living space with sleeper sofa, a small yet fully-equipped kitchen, a bedroom with a queen-size bed, two full baths, two flat screen TVs, cable, a DVD player, and Wi-Fi access... it suited our needs perfectly! We spent a good deal of our time playing in the pool located in the private backyard off the main house but we also appreciated being within walking distance from the beach, restaurants, shops, and mini-golf. There are a lot of activities to do in the area, of which we took a day trip to Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and then the guys set out for an evening on a shark fishing excursion... grilling up their catch at the house the next day for dinner! We were very excited to see that the NEW Andy Romano Beachfront Park had been completed just across the street. After seeing the city break ground on it last year, the final product is better than I could have imagined... there is ample free public parking, multiple picnic pavilions and a BBQ area, a shaded playground, a splash park, CLEAN public restrooms, and concessions. Bravo to the City of Ormond Beach for a job well done! And thanks again to Nicole for sharing her wonderful vacation home with us... I’m looking forward to coming back next year!!
