About Tom Easton

Contractor in the Orlando area, completely remodeled after purchasing this home. Someday will retire here and enjoy the salt life. When Lyn [my wife] come over we're at the beach at sunrise, couple mile walk, shelling, dolphin spotting or on turtle patrol. Then breakfast at Heifer's, garage sales and farmer's market at Flager Beach, then back to our beach house and shut the gate!

Tom Easton purchased this house in 2006

Why Tom Easton chose Ormond-by-the-Sea

Ormond beach is more laid back than Daytona, no cars on the beach and less traffic, more of a residential area without all the noise. Can see the stars at night not the city lights. Installed customized outdoor lighting around pool screen and summer kitchen, trying to create a organized jungle for privacy

perfect getaway place , clean , quiet, and lovely.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed staying here, lots of privacy, quiet street. We felt like we were on our own private island!, clean home no bugs and beautiful pool area, for great relaxation, also a water fall to add to the "obiance".Tom was quick to answer any questions, and everything you need was here. We loved this place and recommend it to you! close to beach too! Thanks so much, we would come here again and easily affordable, returned deposit fast.

Good place for small family , very secluded and private.

  • 4 of 5

House is small but has everything needed for a small family or couple. Only draw back was no TVs in bedrooms and the Wi-Fi was too weak to watch movies on computer .We have to do business via internet but Wi-Fi just too slow. If you are a family wanting good location for beach and beautiful pool then this is good for you. We felt house was very secluded and private; Which we enjoyed. Nice décor. We would def rent again if they added TV's and fixed Wi-Fi . Also we were there during cold weather so not sure if the solar heating was not working or just too cool to heat pool. Pool and yard are very nice and would be wonderful to use during warmer weather.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

So glad we picked this property to stay at for our week visiting family in the area! Although we didn't use it all, the different spaces for outdoor lounging (screened in too) were many. The pool area itself was beautiful and the pool was great for our 4 year old with stairs going into the shallow area as well as a deep end for our 14 year old. The water temp was perfect. The great grilling area with a fan to help with the heat was perfect. The house itself was neat and clean and very inviting! The one block walk to the beach was very handy. Although it is in a residential area, you feel like you are very secluded with the privacy fences and being located at the end of the block. We look forward to staying there again when we come back down to visit family!

Best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was WOW! From the moment you pull into the driveway you will be amazed. Beautiful landscaping and a very tropical feel everywhere. The pool area was wonderful. Very nice and very private. And the house was cozy and inviting. We would recommend this little hideaway to any family. Thank you Tom and Lyn and we hope to be back next year!

Family Vacation 2013

  • 5 of 5

I am one to read hundreds of reviews before choosing a place to stay. A wonderful review doesn't give this home justice. Upon arrival there was a nice note & wine called "Vacation" (great touch). We have 3 sons 8 & up and after long days at the beach we would all come back and relax in the amazing pool. The BBQ area saved us hundreds in groceries! Anything you could need is provided in this rental. You are seriously 2 minutes from the Beach! Shopping is only a block or two away. This home is very clean. Tom & Terri were easy to communicate with and sure to please! I highly recommend this property whether you are traveling for business, romance or with family this house is perfect for everyone. Thanks for the wonderful place to stay Tom. Sorry my review didn't post the first time! BTW Small ice cream shop w huge ice cream cone down A1A with wonderful ice cream and very friendly folks is a don't miss stop~

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! Beautiful and clean inside and out! We have always gotten hotel rooms for our vacations so we were a little nervous about renting a house.....not anymore. This was a great experience! The pool was warm and clean, plenty of pool toys. We swam every minute we were there. My husband loved the grill too! The beach was very close and probably one of the cleanest areas of the beach we have been on, not crowded at all. Nice place to bring kids. Wish we could live there! Thanks for the great vacation!
