About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14





This house (Victorian) sports some really amazing things that would be a pleasure for anyone to experience such as stunning views from any room of the house of the intra-coastal waterway. From this view, while relaxing on the porch swing or on rocking chairs on the gorgeous Victorian-style porch you'll be able to see dolphins jumping right before your eyes! You can even go out and get within arms reach on our 270 foot dock, where you may just be lucky enough to see manatees come right up next to the dock.


This complex is great for multi-generational families. You'll have lots of room in the house, yard, and pool to have fun and relax in a tranquil setting. For example, you and your family could decide to play a game of football in our 1/2 acre backyard, while grandma and grandpa snap pictures of the game from the tire swing!

For relaxing by the water, not only do you have the option of going to the beach, we also have a state-of-the-art 20x40 screened in Grecian-style pool. The pool area also has a awesome therapeutic spa that fits EIGHT people comfortably.

VICTORIAN - A wheel chair accessible ramp is located right by the carport for easy access to the house. The first floor is fully accessible for a wheelchair to get around. The bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, living room, and both porches can all be accessed by wheelchair.

VICTORIAN HOUSE - The FIRST FLOOR consists of the library/bedroom with queen bed, spacious living room with a huge plasma TV for viewing, music room, dining room, kitchen, enjoy two different types of porches, A wrap-around and a screened in morning porch, two full size bathrooms, (One is wheelchair accessible) and a laundry room. The floors in all the rooms are hard wood, except the kitchen which has a tile floor. The music room has a 'Baby Grand' player piano and can also be played manually. The library has books, a computer with high speed internet, puzzles, games, cards, and a Queen-size 'Murphy' bed. (Very comfortable if I do say so myself)

VICTORIAN HOUSE - The SECOND FLOOR consists of the Master Bedroom with a King-size bed and a balcony directly overlooking the Halifax River (Intra-coastal waterway) with 'AWESOME VIEWS'. A second bedroom has a queen bed and the third bedroom has a queen bed. In addition, there is a family room upstairs with two Queen-size futons. There are two full bathrooms, one with a four-person jetted tub. At the top of the steps is a little room with a desk and chair.

CARRIAGE HOUSE - Ground level house next to the pool with a full bathroom and a bathtub/shower combination, full kitchen - stove, refrigerator, oven, living room/dining room, Queen Bed bedroom and washer and dryer. There are two wall unit air conditioners in the Carriage House. One in the bedroom and one in the living room.

Pack up the kids and coolers and head to the beach two miles away where you can drive on the Sandy Beach. Both the Ormond and Daytona Beaches will allow you to drive along and view the beautiful coastline from the comfort of your car!

I hope that you enjoy your stay at our treasured home, we wanted to share the joy that living in this home has brought us, and so we decided to put our home up for rent so that we could share that joy with everyone else. We keep our home in only the best condition that we ourselves would also use. I've done my best to convey the serenity and beauty of our home to you through words, however, my writing does not do this wonderful home justice. I can only hope that you would be able to see and enjoy it in person so that you can capture the true essence of beauty that I could only partially describe through words.

Excellent for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! It is an older Victorian house with lots of space in a nice neighborhood. We enjoyed running & walking along the river. The pool & jacuzzi area got lots of use & accommodates many people. The dock here is in bad condition, but about a mile down the road there is a bait shop & you can fish from the docks under the bridge & catch all sorts of interesting fish. The beach is close & lovely. Thank you for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and your understanding of the dock being damaged from Hurricane "IRMA". We hope that when you visit again that you will get to enjoy the dock and all it's splendor.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the location on the river. We even saw dolphins close to the dock one morning. We loved the porches, the salt water pool, the bicycles, and the sidewalks for walking. It was a very convenient location to the beach and restaurants. There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out in the house (at one point, there were 15 of us).
