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

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!

Only thing missing was warmer weather….

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a week at this home. We found the home very cozy and equipped with everything that we needed for a very nice week of vacation. We stayed with another couple. We found the location to be great with plenty of things to do within driving distance and lots of nice restaurants to eat at in the area. We wish the weather would have cooperated a little more as the pool was so beautiful and inviting but to cold to swim in. We did know however that this time of year that is the chance that you take in Florida. Would loved to have been there for a week during warmer weather and been able to swim every day. The pool is sparkling and beautiful and we did enjoy sitting around it. The grilles are great and were very nice for the few meals that we did cook there. We do have a suggestion though that maybe you could put instructions in the notebook that was on the counter for the tv remote as it took us a little time to figure that all out. Also instructions for the dishwasher and washer and dryer may come in handy. We thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home for our vacation and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Ormond Beach area.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this beach home justice. We would leave the beach (which is literally 1 block away) and come back to this beautiful beach house that happens to be at the end of the road and set back on the lot making it very secluded\we loved that! It didn't matter if our boys were loud while swimming in the pool and no matter how late it was our pool wasn't closed(would have been at a hotel). The pool is well taken care of and the perfect temperature day or night swimming,it was great.I shouldn't say how great it is,I may never get to rent it again when its booked solid :) Every time we thought we may need to run to the store and get something-Surprise it was there in the rental for our use. Beach toys,Boogie Boards,Rafts,Beach Towels. Everything we could think of,plus some. We left a few things to donate because our kids had so much fun playing with all the "toys". We have family in Ormond and would invite them over for dinner. The BBQ area is well maintained and a great area to hang out in as the kids swim. The washer and Dryer were also great to have. We didn't have to pack as much since we could wash our clothes right there in the house. I highly reccomend the Ice Cream Shoppe 1 block left up on A1A. The nole lizards are everywhere in this area and the kids had a blast catching them,we came home with 8!! Thanks for the wonderful vacation. We will fore sure be booking again. The Dowling family?
