About Timothy Cook

Our children are now graduating High school and College at this time. We also have an older son that recently moved to Arizona and is a graduate from UCF.

Why Timothy Cook chose Ormond-by-the-Sea

We love the old florida atmosphere that we remember as we were growing up in the 60's. We love bike riding, fishing, boating and just relaxing on the beach with family and friends. We plan on having many family gatherings here for years to come.

What makes this house unique

We are so close to everything and yet at the same time we are in such a unique location. Like a secret hide-a-way in the center of it all. We are minutes away from Daytona and Flagler Beaches (10 min.), Historic St. Augustine (50 min.) and Cape Canaveral (1 hr. 30 Min.), Disney, SeaWorld, Universal and Islands of Adventure are about 1 hour away. Lots and lots of fabulous restaurants, shopping and grocery stores are very close, within a few miles.

  • 5 of 5

February 2016. Surfside cottage really adorable !! This is exactly the type of lodging my husband and I love. Clean and bright, confortable, everything you could need and more, When you travel, you always forget certain things. Riding our bikes along the ocean was absolutely great, no traffic, just pure joy !! Walkng distance to the beach and on quiet nights, you can hear the waves. All services are close, shopping, good restaurants. Nice landlord, very helpful. Thank you The Cook family and Tim (landlord)

Very nice Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as scheduled and was met by Tim and his wife. Two very nice people. The house was very clean and well kept. Tim showed us everything and more. The Neighborhood was very nice and all the neighbors we met were very friendly. We unpacked and took the very short walk to the beach. This was the first time the two children (7 and 5) ever saw the beach. They were amazed!!. We all rode the Beach Cruisers that were at the house. The back yard was amazing we ate dinner on the back patio and the girls played ball in the yard.

Tim came by and checked on us. Man ! he was also amazing. We took the short drive to Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach. The whole family really enjoyed the day at Daytona Lagoon. The girls are already asking about staying at the house again Next Year and We assured them that we would. A very big Thanks to Tim and his Wife and the Owners. SEE YALL NEXT YEAR!!!!!

Great Home, Great Location, Great Time!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this home! It was perfect for our family of 4 and the location cant be beat. The home was well maintained, very clean and as advertised. I work in the vacation management industry so I am a very tough customer but this home hit the mark. I am sending family referral's your way and I might rebook again this summer. Thanks so much!!!

Comfortable,Clean and Cute

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this house, the yard, the neighbors and the close proximity to the ocean.

Our first vacation since my husbands retirement and we feel so fortunate to be in such a lovely spot. We walked into a wonderful house, so comfortable and clean. Since I was new at rental vacation properties I was delighted. The appliances were newer, the beds very comfortable and the bathrooms were almost new. A Laundry room was a feature we also found to be a bonus. The house is decorated wonderfully and just about everything you could need was there. We would certainly recommend this rental, and hope it will be available for us next year.

Look no further, this is the perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week of vacation in Ormond-by-the-Sea and wish that we could have stayed here forever! We're not into the crowded, developed and commercial beach towns like Daytona and we looking for a quiet and relaxing beach getaway. We certainly found it with this rental! The house was beautifully decorated and had everything that you could possible need and more. The fenced in yard was lovely, we ate most meals outside on the patio and we even made a pie with fresh figs from the fig tree! Our beagle enjoyed it as well, he also enjoyed the lovely walks through the charming and quiet neighborhood every day. All of the neighbors were friendly and nice. Beach chairs, an umbrella and towels were provided, so we walked down the street every day to the beach which was incredibly beautiful, very few people there. We cooked most meals at home and got everything at the Publix just down the road, very convenient. Enjoyed the satellite tv on the few rainy afternoons and also went down to Ormond Beach to play mini-golf and go to the movies one day. Probably one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we've ever had and we will definitely be back. If you don't rent this house, you are missing out!

Owner's Response: Dear Rachel, Thank you for your very complementary review! We feel the very same way about our beach home. That is why we chose this location when we purchased it a couple of years ago. We look forward to renting to you both again. Sincerely, The Cooks
