About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Relax on the balcony, watching and listening to the ocean waves. This is on the top floor of a 3 story, horse-shoe shaped building, called the Ormond Breakers, which is located across A1A. There is private access to the beach for residents and guests, and the beach is a no-drive beach, so it is quiet and relaxing. Cars will stop for you to cross. You can suntan or swim in the pool, located right in the courtyard. Front door can be opened with your personal access code, so no need to carry a key! Elevators and shopping carts are available to help you tote your groceries or luggage.

Living Room - There is a 55'' HDTV with DVR and a Blu-ray player. You can view the pool and ocean through the sliding doors in the living room, while sitting on the couch or comfy round chair. We also have new turtle tinted, hurricane grade windows and sliding glass doors.

2 bedroom/2 bathrooms: Master Bedroom - King size bed, dresser, armoire with 32' LED TV, and bedside table. You can hear the ocean while you sleep! The bathroom has been updated with new tiles and a standing shower with a grab bar.

2nd/Kids bedroom - This fun colored room has a bunk bed with a twin on top, a full size bed in the middle, and a twin trundle bed drawer that pulls out. The TV plays PlayStation 2 games (lots to choose from!) and DVDs. Kids can sit on the futon to play games, or it can be extended to make a Queen sleeper.

Pool and Garage: Pool/Garage - The pool is located in the courtyard of the building. It can be viewed from our unit. The garage is 1 car in a 2 car garage, shared with 1 other unit. We have a code that you can use to open the door. There is also additional parking space in the parking lot.

About Tom & Shanon Braden

We have 3 kids and live in Jacksonville, just an hour's drive away from Ormond. My 3 year old called it our 'Ocean Tondo' and asked all the time when we're going back to the Ocean Tondo, so that's where it gets it's name.

Tom & Shanon Braden purchased this condo in 2011

Why Tom & Shanon Braden chose Ormond-by-the-Sea

We wanted a place close to home for our family to enjoy, but far enough away to feel like vacation. We would like to rent it while we are not enjoying it ourselves. Therefore, it will be decorated and cared for as our second home.

fabulous in every way

  • 5 of 5

Friends and I spent a long weekend at the condo. It is brightly decorated in a beach theme, very well furnished and equipped, and immaculately clean. The living area and master bedroom are larger than they appear in the pictures. The complex is extremely clean and well maintained, and the pool is delightful. The location is terrific, a quiet area just north of the central part of Ormond Beach. Publix and others shops, etc. are just a short drive from the condo. We crossed a two lane road and were immediately walking the beach and riding/jumping waves. You will not find a better owner to rent from than Tom. He answers emails and returns calls promptly and honors reasonable requests. He is truly eager to make his renters have a wonderful time in the condo and area.

Just fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. We've had the best time here! Condo is fabulous. Loved thoughtfully stocked, great layout, beds, showers, tvs, balcony, pool. Very quiet (unless we wanted the sound of the surf). Friendly neighbors, great base for exploring the area (restaurants, MOAS, St. Augustine, Ponce Inlet, Daytona, New Smyrna). So tough to leave. Thanks so much to the hospitable owners. Hope to be back.

Loved staying here !

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at the OceanTondo! Quiet and peaceful unit right across the street from the beach made for a relaxing vacation. Enjoyed having lots of room in the kids room and the master king bed was more comfy than most hotels we've stayed at! Our family of 6 had plenty of room to spread out and having 2 full bathrooms was wonderful! Owners provide lots of 'extras' that were greatly appreciated!!! Another plus is the garage ... It was great being able to leave some stuff in the vehicle without worrying about breakins as you would in a parking lot. The whole rental process was super easy and the owner was very responsive during the process and we had our security refund not long after checkout . Very streamlined which made everything stress free. When we return to Florida this is the first place I will look at to stay again. Thank you Tom and Shanon for your hospitality!!!

My wife and I needed a quick getaway. It was short notice but Tom and Sharon came to the rescue with their lovely condo in Ormond Beach. The OceanTando was perfect. The collection of original loony tunes DVDs was a nice touch.

We would visit again.

thank you Tom for everything!

Great place for all ages.

  • 5 of 5

Hi, just wanted you and your family to know what a great time we had at the

"Tondo". We did discover great family restaurants and fun things to do,

that living in Fl., we didn't look into until we had a grandson. Your

vacation home was so comfortable that we had no trouble sleeping in a new

bed! The condo was very well equipped.

The people we met at the pool were really wonderful and cordial. Thank

you, Thank you. Linda
