Very nice house and accommodating hosts in a beautiful spot. The house is very comfortable and we felt like we had the beach to ourselves. We can't wait to come back! Actual Airbnb review

Only Modern on the Inside

  • 2 of 5

The outside of the house is in need of painting and the yard had no grass (only weeds and thorns). The house is an older home that has been nicely updated on the inside; all the floors are tile except for the back bedroom that has older carpeting. The kitchen is great, bathrooms are updated (no window coverings on either bathroom). The master and one smaller bedroom (both have queen beds) share a bathroom. The master bedroom only has a curtain separating it from the back door (lack of privacy). The third bedroom (double bed) is a converted garage with no closet space, closet is full of owner’s belongings, washer and dryer are also in the back bedroom. The beach; it is about 1-2 minute walk from the house. The grocery store is a 3 minute drive and restaurants are close also. Unfortunately there are more cons than pros for this home. No outside shower for rinsing off the sand after you go to the beach and the garden hose doesn’t work in the back – you have to bring the hose around the house and walk back and forth to turn it off and on. No patio cover in back. There’s no light on back patio or we couldn’t find the switch.

Air conditioning doesn’t really cool the house down very well, we were warm at times. The dishwasher controls do not work properly. The grill top on the stove doesn’t have a vent and the smoke alarm went off when we tried to cook on the grill top (even though there was very little smoke). Charcoal grill outside was not cleaned. There was a small gas grill that could be used.The back bedroom sheets were dirty when we checked in and there were broken bits of glass on the kitchen floor and dog hair on all the floors. We attempted to vacuum but it did not work well enough to remove the dog hair, we swept the floors repeatedly to remove. Towards the end of our stay we saw roaches in various locations in house (bathroom counter top).

The last part was the most disturbing, the property manager wanted to schedule more maintenance for the house during our stay that we did not request and we politely refused, thinking that maintenance should be scheduled on the owners time, for instance during the Saturday 10am – 3pm cleaning window.

They were insistent and augmentative and when we went to dinner they put a “notice to enter the premises” on the door, this is not how you treat people that you want to come back and rent again; this put a sour note on the week for us.

I only wish I had known all the above before I reserved this property.

The property is beautiful, cozy and quiet.

We truly enjoyed our stay. Being right on the beach was awesome as I could go out and watch the sunrise without waking up the rest of my family. During the afternoon rain storms we still had an awesome view from the large windows. We went to Billow State Park one day and walked the mini trail. But mostly we enjoyed the beach.

Very nice, clean and pleasant.

We loved staying at this home. Perfect beach access. Even though the house sits right on the main road, it sits back and you never hear the traffic. All you hear is the sound of the waves. We would highly recommend this property for your Ormond Beach stay.

Like owning our own oceanfront home for the week!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The review mentioning the owners must be foodies is right! There's a gas DCS stove with grill attachment and a commercial grade microwave oven. I've never seen a microwave heat stuff so fast. As far as the house goes....everything is top of the line....all marble counter tops in both bathrooms and the kitchen with a jacuzzi tub in one bathroom and a peebled black rock floor in the second bathroom shower. Everything looks brand new. I've never slept on a tempurpedic bed before again....I've got to get one of those! There's a treadmill that has an ocean view! That's only if the weather wasn't perfect, because otherwise, it's a short walk to your own private beach. Anyone can stay in a hotel but I've never stayed in a million dollar oceanfront home and I hope to return soon!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful ocean front home for 5 1/2 months and it quickly became our home away from home. We are a retired couple from Nova Scotia and spending the winter in Florida at this location was a dream come true. The house is clean and bright and comfortable. The towels and bedding are high quality and the kitchen cupboards are well stocked with cooking utensils and dishes. During our stay everything worked perfectly (including the septic system) and we had no issues with anything. We enjoyed walking the beach and surf fishing. We are looking forward to returning to this excellent home.

Far exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 4yo daughter and I thought we'd follow our trip to Disney World with a few relaxing days on the beach, away from the craziness. Morning Sun was just what we needed. Of the 3 of us, I'm the only morning person; waking up to see the sunrise peeking into the master bedroom, taking my coffee to the beachfront deck, and welcoming the day became a morning ritual I’ll never forget.

We had seen pictures of the house online, and thought it looked better than everything else in a similar price range. But upon arrival, we were absolutely stunned by how well-appointed the place was, especially the kitchen. New stainless appliances, including a double oven, and well-stocked drawers and cupboards made it clear that a foody was in charge of the renovation. The rest of the house was very tastefully decorated and plenty roomy for the 3 of us. We didn’t even need the 3rd bedroom – but were happy it was there; our little girl considered it her play room. The beds were comfy, and the Jacuzzi tub was perfect for our Disney-sore bodies.

We became very familiar with the short path from the back deck to the beach, and loved playing in the surf and flying kites with the neighbors. Even though there are condos nearby, the beach was never crowded at all, and the locals we did meet were very friendly. We weren’t there during the height of the tourist season by any means, but we never felt like we wanted for privacy. Part of that is no doubt a result of the tall fence and the way the house is situated, but also it seemed that this part of Ormond is far enough north that you avoid the silliness of Daytona… but could fully immerse yourself in it if you felt the need.

The owners were extremely easy to deal with and responded almost immediately to questions and concerns. In fact, the only glitch we ran into during our entire stay was some confusion with the key box upon arrival. But a short call to April quickly sorted us out.

We searched and searched for a reasonably-priced beachfront rental that wasn’t a dump. What we found at Morning Sun far exceeded our expectations, in every way. If you have any thoughts of a beach stay near Daytona, do yourself a favor and give it a look.
