About Jo Ann Hemelrick

I was born in New Jersey at the shore. I grew up in Cape Coral, FL since I was 12. I went to High School at North Fort Myers High and am attending University of Phoenix and am currently a Junior. I am 52 and married. We currently live in Ocala, FL and have lived here for 8 years, previously we lived and worked in Cape Coral, FL where we raised our daughter. Our daughter and son-in-law live in Chicago, IL. They are young techy's who live and work in the city.

Jo Ann Hemelrick purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Jo Ann Hemelrick chose Ormond-by-the-Sea

My husband and I purchased this bungalow thinking it would be a great place for our family members to vacation and a great place to meet up other then in Ocala. Unfortunately everyone can only get away a few times a year due to work and life. I love this house because of the wood beam ceilings. They just grabbed me and I had to have it. The rest of the house needed a lot of work and updating, so myself, my husband, and my brother totally renovated and updated entire house both skin and bones. I love to decorate so that was the fun part for me.

What makes this bungalow unique

What I really loved about this house was high wood beam ceilings and the house is only 1 block from the beach. This house is located in between the ocean and the Halifax River. I love the drive down A1A and the drive down John Anderson Ave along the river. This house is located right in between million dollar homes at either end of the street. It's just enough house to enjoy vacation time at the beach, Daytona, Disney and St. Augustine. You can even sit out on the small front porch and enjoy the weather. We were able to design the kitchen ourselves since the previous kitchen was practically non existent. Most nights you can sit on either porch and hear the ocean, it is very relaxing.

Great little place for a great price.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice amenities and upgrades inside. And just enough room for us--a retired couple with a small dog. No problem, either, sharing it with our adult daughter when she visited for a few days. We didn't take advantage of many activities to the south of Sea La Vie, but we did discover lots to enjoy to the north. Snack Jack's serves great food with a super ocean view. Palm Coast is a lovely community with many parks and trails. Captain Rick (Sailing Winsome at Halifax Harbor) provided a great sailing experience. As she did last year, Jo Ann had everything well-prepared for our arrival at Sea La Vie and took good care of our few last minute needs.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

The house was just what we needed. Quiet neighborhood, a bike ride to the beach. In which was also a plus, any and everthing we needed was in the house. Nicely decorated. My fiancé and I had a really nice time. We actually loved the house so much we will be booking this place again as we plan to get to Daytona and Ormond Beach every year now!

Great deal and clean.

  • 4 of 5

Great deal for what you pay. The place is very inviting and modern, we felt at home. Clean and we enjoyed BBQ grill. It is In very convenient location to the beach, to the grocery store. I felt comfortable with our 2 dogs.But up to date TV would be a plus.

Owner's Response: We can't thank you enough for taking the time to write a review of your stay. We always enjoy hearing from our guests, and it sounds like you enjoyed the property and found it to be acceptable. We are taking your comment about the television updates to heart. The TV's are both connected to Direct TV, and provide hundreds of channels to choose from. The TV in the living room is a larger flat screen, but the bedroom TV is somewhat smaller and could probably be updated. We will replace the smaller bedroom TV and get something larger and more up to date for our future and returning guests! Thank you for your review and we hope to see you back again.

Great couples getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for a couples getaway. It has almost everything you need and Publix is just around the corner for your grocery needs. Very close to the beach only a walk or bike ride away or if you prefer like we did its only a 5 min. drive to have your car parked right on the beach with all your beach gear. Great back yard for my 2 yorkie babies, the loved running in the grass. There's shade in different areas of the day. It would be nice to have a couple of seating areas in the shaded areas of the back yard. The bed in the master was extremely comfortable, your guaranteed to get a good night's sleep. I'd highly recommend this place and we will be back in the future!

We are glad you enjoyed the outdoor area on the screened in back porch in the meantime. We so look forward to having you back as a guest. It warms our heart to provide a clean, comfortable and enjoyable vacation for our guests. We also love the location of the Publix shopping center!!! SO glad you enjoyed it!!

The perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have dealt with Vrbo/Homeaway for years and I have never had a more wonderful experience or vacation. Julie was absolutely wonderful she made us feel more like family staying than guest she was more than welcoming. I truly feel as if I made a new friend through this experience she was in touch and made sure that we were comfortable throughout the whole stay. The home was beautiful with all the amenities of being home! We could've stayed forever and my son begged for us to he wanted to move into the house. Ormond Beach is our new family getaway the area is beautiful and a true family trip with Daytona, Flagler, St Augustine and Ponce Inlet right at the back door. The lighthouse at Ponce is amazing and Daytona at the boardwalk is awesome make sure to try the taffy and Flagler with the beautiful town with a great flea market there is so much to do! Thank you so much Julie for your hospitality and kindness and making sure that we enjoyed our stay I look forward to next year!!
